About Zach

Our family has been vacationing in Palm Springs for four generations. There is something special about Palm Springs that continues to enchant us. Hugging the mountain on Highway 111 as we cruise into town melts our stress away and our first glimpse of the iconic mid-century modern architecture transports us to another time.

We got married in Palm Springs at the Viceroy in 2008. Since then, we have dreamed of opening a boutique hotel in Palm Springs. In early 2012, we stumbled upon this original mid-century modern Alexander butterfly roof home with its original footprint still in tact. We decided to fulfill our dream of owning a boutique hotel by carefully renovating and designing this house to provide guests with a hotel-like experience in a private home. We spent the next year carefully restoring it to its original splendor (with modern upgrades).

We are excited to offer this special property to our guests, and we hope our guests will treasure this house as much as we do.

Zach purchased this house in 2012

Why Zach chose Twin Palms

This house provides the quintessential Palm Springs experience: mid-century modern architecture; private pool and yard with citrus trees; mountain views; walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, bars and more; stylish new furnishings and decor; in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Palm Springs.

What makes this house unique

This property is truly unique because of its rare butterfly roofline, its modern, yet period-appropriate upgrades, its historical significance, its large backyard, and its orientation towards the mountain, resulting in mountain views from all bedrooms and the backyard.

This property is located in the highly sought after neighborhood, Twin Palms, in South Palm Springs. Twin Palms is home to the former Frank Sinatra estate and dozens of other mid-century modern homes designed by famed architects Palmer & Krisel for the Alexander Construction Company in the late 1950s (these homes are referred to as the 'Alexanders'). The neighborhood of Twin Palms is quiet and peaceful. However, restaurants, bars and coffee shops, including the Ace Hotel (which has a day spa and various evening entertainment), Kings Highway, Koffi and Elmers, are walking distance. The Smoke Tree Village Shopping Center, which has a grocery store and additional restaurants, is less than one mile away.

Nice place, good location, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. House is stylish and nicely furnished and the pool is terrific. Owner very responsive as well.

However if you like to sleep in bring an eye mask. Those high ceilings and un-shaded celestory windows make it impossible to truly darken the bedrooms (except in the Casita which is, conversely, cave-like).

Magical

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful yet also very comfortable home. It's in a perfect location. Quiet yet close to downtown. Zach was available at any time for questions. The pool is lovely. We chose not to heat the pool and it was delightful. The kitchen is very well stocked. We were able to cook and barbecue with ease

True mid-century experience

  • 4 of 5

What a treat to stay in this house! An Alexander house from the mid 50's in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Palm Springs. The neighborhood is amazing and the house is tastefully updated without being overdone. Plenty of room for the 5 of us, all the essentials, comfy beds and killer AC. I loved the yard with its small grass area and orange tree. And a butterfly roof! If I had one suggestion- more towels- beach, bigger towels for outside. Thanks and can't wait to come back next year. Amy and Dave

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

My friends and myself enjoyed our stay at this home. Just a few things I think need to be addressed. The security system to enter needs to be simplified. With the high windows in this home and the way the sun rises and sets the bedrooms are very warm in the afternoons. Ceiling fans through out the house would really help or maybe some solar screens. There are plenty of bath towels but not enough hand towels or washcloths for the amount of people that the home can accommodate. Nice neighborhood and centrally located.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. This guest stayed at the house in the middle of the summer. Fortunately, the AC system cools the house quite nicely even during 110+ degree heat. We have had many guests all summer that have not raised this issue. That said, we are going to see about adding ceiling fans for next summer as that could add additional benefit and we are constantly looking for ways to upgrade the house and the guests' experience. We keep extra swim towels in the hallway closet.
