Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Palm Springs City Ordinance, the primary renter must be 25 years or older and be present during the rental period. The City requires that you provide a government ID and your acceptance of the booking confirms your understanding of this.

Also, due to Palm Springs City Ordinance, overnight guests cannot exceed 2 people per bedroom, therefore we cannot accept bookings of more then 6 people (the overnight guest number can increase to 8 if two of the guests are 12 years old or younger, though we recommend groups of 6 or less regardless).

About Kris (or Ilka or Dave)

We're a group of 4 married couples (and longtime friends) who would frequently vacation in Palm Springs. It didn't take long to appreciate what a special community exists, and we were fortunate enough to pick up this house in 2008. Our love for the house and the town has only grown, and we're so happy to share both with our guests.

Have a martini on us!

Perfect Slice of Palm Springs Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!

Martini Weekend Review

  • 4 of 5

Given our family had not been to Palm Springs, we were initially unsure about the location but as it stands Palm Springs is relatively small and getting around is no problem. The house was clean, great condiments for cooking and BBQ and well maintained. Our girls are 9 and 11 so the park across the street was great for a quick game of soccer and hiking at Indian Canyon and Thousand Palms were all easy to get to via car. We enjoyed meeting friends for coffee at Koffee albeit it was a bit of a drive. The one draw back is that it is on a somewhat busy street although it didn't seem too loud. Recommend!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We had not been to Plam Springs before so were pleased to discover how close to downtown we were. The house is well done with a lovely, private backyard. One of our favorite features was the covered area right outside the kitchen.

We were most pleased with both the facilities and your rental service.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and the owners and property manager were accommodating in every respect. We found the property to be in a good location, a mile from grocery and liquor, and close to several restaurants. Several miles to downtown which was still very convenient. Living in someone else's home for a month takes some adjustment, but is certainly interesting. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property to others and use it again ourselves. Thanks for everything!

Great house, well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a girls weekend for 3 nights. It was amazing. The property owners had excellent communication. We had some difficulties with the TV but I texted the contact number they gave me and we figured it out. The house is in a great location- perfectly close to the airport, grocery stores and downtown. Hoping to make it an annual trip!
