Strikingly renovated Mid-century Alexander designed by acclaimed architects Palmer & Krisel. As of December 2013, new paint (inside & out), new landscaping, new decor - a total refresh (new photos to follow)! This is the true Palm Springs lifestyle: Martinis, Bikinis, and, uh... 42 inch Flat-Screeny! An entertainer's floor plan features clerestory windows, period-inspired furnishings, high tongue-and-groove ceilings and walls of glass that lead to the *private* resort like backyard, sparkling heated Saline pool, and breathtaking views of the mountains. Enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways: relax poolside, dine alfresco, or lounge in the covered breezeway. 3 bedrooms: 1 King Suite, a Queen sized room, and the 3rd bedroom features 2 XL Twins that can be combined to a luxurious King. There is also a Queen Aero-Bed for added convenience. Other entertainment includes a shaded park nearby, a short walk to the nighttime hotspot The Riviera, and easy access to the Downtown Strip, featuring bars, restaurants, casinos, shopping, & spas.
Our perfect vacation week began the moment we contacted the owners to inquire. Excellent, prompt customer service and a welcoming demeanor formed our first impressions of this stellar mid-century retreat.
Imagine our delight when we entered the property to find that the decor, accommodations, and cleanliness were all maintained with the same integrity and attention to detail we had encountered during the booking process. The delightful mid-century decor is clean, chic, and comfortable. Not only is the home perfectly gorgeous and homey; it is also extremely well-stocked with cookware, linens, games, and everything one could possibly need for a perfect getaway.
As we spent the days dreaming poolside, relaxing in the high quality lounge chairs, we enjoyed the idyllic setting of swaying palms, blossoming bougainvilla, and charming citrus trees. And if all of this weren't enough to relax us, floating on rafts (provided by the house) in the heated saltwater pool would do the trick.
The location of this property couldn't be better. Only a few minutes from downtown (shopping, restaurants, bars), the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, and local casinos; it's also not far to such amazing natural treasures as Joshua Tree and Indian Canyons. A sprawling outlet mall is only a short drive on the freeway. And the nearby (actually walking distance) Riviera Hotel & Spa provides excellent nightlife and spa facilities.
We will never, ever forget our very magical week at Martini Weekend and cannot wait to return. The property was everything we hoped it would be, and so much more.
Thanks to Dave, Kris and Chris for sharing your home with us!
Loved the Martini House. We appreciated Greg meeting us at the house for a walk through. Very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped. Thoroughly enjoyed the pool and backyard, it was a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sun. Highly recommended.
Book the "Martini Weekend" house and you won't be sorry – nor will you ever want to leave. It's absolutely perfect for a Palm Springs visit. Endless sightseeing, shopping, dining, bar hopping, and more are just a short drive away - some destinations are even within walking distance. The property manager cordially greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a quick tour. From bed to bath to open living room, the mid-century home is immaculate, spacious, filled with light, quiet as you want it to be, and immensely comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with cookware, glasses, utensils, spices and a few other pantry items. It has a large, open counter which makes food and beverage prep a breeze. And that's just the indoors. Step outside to find a gorgeous back yard enclosed with a white wall – all the better to make the plants and pool pop. A 360-view includes palms and agaves, citrus and bougainvillea, Palo Verde and fountain grasses. It was wonderful to sip our morning coffee while gazing at the mountains. The clean, refreshing pool contains no chlorine, which means no icky smell and less dried-out skin. It comes equipped with two comfy "rafts" for floating the day away. You can enter the pool from the shallow end on both sides via easy-access steps. There are multiple, adjustable chaise longue with cushions plus a sectional sofa in a shaded area. The pool itself is nicely lit so you can enjoy cocktails poolside while you gaze at the stars. We'd reserve this amazing property again in a heartbeat!
My family and I had a great weekend at this lovely home- it is very warm and inviting and had all the essentials for a comfortable stay. It was very clean and well-maintained and I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
6 of us stayed here for the first weekend of the Desert Trip Concert. We all had the best time hanging out by the pool in between concert days. The house was perfect for us and we really appreciated all the home had to offer. We are already talking about the next time we can visit Palm Springs and rent the home again! Thank You!!
We had a great holiday weekend get away in this home. The house is centrally located and has all the amenities that you need. The house was extremely clean when we arrived and it had all the charm of the quintessential Palm Springs mid-century modern design. The pool is a great size and there is a beautiful view of the mountains in the backdrop, as you lounge by the pool. My interactions with the property owner were great. She answered any questions that I had in a very efficient time frame. I would highly recommend staying in this home when looking for a great PS experience.
