About the property

1 Bdrm W/ King Bed Located Steps From The Pool And Jacuzzi

Come step back in time at your very own Rat Pack-era bungalow, centrally located just minutes from downtown in the desirable and historic Twin Palms neighborhood, where you'll find Frank Sinatra's original home. Ocotillo Lodge is walking distance to Koffi, Smoketree Commons, Ace Hotel and Bar, and shopping for new and vintage treasures alike.

Our comfortable and relaxing bungalow is situated just steps from the champagne cork-shaped heated pool (one of the largest in Palm Springs) as well as two jacuzzi spas. Float in the pool with a cocktail and take in the surrounding San Jacinto mountain range and let all your stress melt away.

The interior of your home away from home features classic Mid-Century Modern architectural elements like tongue & groove ceilings, clerestory windows, architectural block walls, and a wall of glass opening out onto your fenced, private patio area.

This 525 square foot bungalow is a single-story, one-bedroom/one-bath equipped with everything you'll need to relax and escape. The bedroom sleeps two with a king size memory foam platform bed and an ensuite "his and hers" bathroom with walk-in shower. The bungalow also features a fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher, apartment size refrigerator and new stove), cozy living area, dining area, and private patio with BBQ for the perfect indoor/outdoor experience.

The unit is stylishly appointed with contemporary and vintage furnishings and finishes. Flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom provide local channels as well as Amazon Prime Netflix and other streaming options via Roku. WiFi is also free of charge. The JBL Bluetooth speaker connects your Pandora or Spotify to add the final touches to your relaxing ambience.

The Ocotillo Lodge was originally a resort owned by Gene Autry. Built in 1957 by architects Palmer and Krisel, it was a hot spot for Hollywood celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, George Burns, Lucille Ball, Gracie Allen and The Rat Pack.

The grounds are beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained desert landscape, including many Ocotillo cacti. The main clubhouse has a full gym as well as a lounge area overlooking the pool.

And should you need additional accomodations, the bungalow next door is also for rent. Please see VRBO#789223

About Gibran Perrone

We've been coming to Palm Springs for years from Los Angeles and always love to stay at places with the style of a bygone era without sacrificing modern comforts. We've tried to create the same feel at our new home away from home and look forward to sharing it with you!

Why Gibran Perrone chose Palm Springs

There are so many things to love about this property. Some our favorites are: how the bungalow design is so comfortable we could stay for months at a time, the amazing pool right out our front door, the overall property is so vintage chic, how we can walk to Koffi in the morning for an iced latte and stroll over to patio restaurant at The Ace hotel for top-notch tacos and delicious cocktails. Or if we feel like making a delicious French Press and whipping up some pancakes and fresh fruit, we can do that too.

The Bungalow is managed and hosted by Host Palm Springs. With more than 30 years of hospitality experience, Jeffery and Terry will be your cordial hosts. They will meet you at the front door and provide a detailed introduction to the property. They are then available to quickly handle any issues or questions you may have. Host is dedicated to helping you have the best, stress free stay possible.

What makes this bungalow unique

Location and style are key. It is fabulous to be so close to downtown and still feel like you are getting away from it all and Palm Springs is an iconic place for Mid-Century Modern style and history.

Mid century modern condo/bungalo right off the pool!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time in this unit! It was very clean with mid century modern decor. Located right off the pool and a few feet from the front gate, the condo was very convenient. The place came with a complimentary bottle of wine and coffee pods. I will definitely stay there next year for my annual family reunion.

Perfect place for your Palm Springs stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week staying at the Ocotillo for our first to Palm Springs. Right from our arrival we were thrilled with our choice. Terry was very professional and super great to deal with.

The location of the Ocotillo is great - close to several restaurants by foot, and less than 10 minute drive to the main drag of Palm Springs. The unit itself is well appointed, with plenty of space for us and our baby. The decor is mid century modern and fun. We loved the music player in the living room, and there's even a record player with some albums to check out. We also loved spending time on the patio which is fully enclosed.

The complex is quiet, with many retired people occupying units. We were always able to get a chair and umbrella by the pool (the unit even has pool noodles to use!). Everyone was nice and friendly. We wish we could have stayed longer!

One minor point - the blinds in the unit are not black out. That was fine for us adults (they even have sleep masks provided!) but meant our baby was up with the sun and daytime naps in the room were a challenge.

Owner's Response: Hello! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed our place. Thank you for taking great care of it. I am sorry to hear about your baby's sleep schedule though. I wanted to let you know that we are working on adding a layer of curtains to give guests the option to make it darker in the bungalow. I hope you'll come visit us again. You are welcome anytime!

Great little fifties apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Much thought went into anticipating a guest's every need: it's all there in this tastefully furnished and comfortable little apartment. The bed is really comfortable, the atmosphere is nice, the pool is fine. A bonus were all the little extras in the kitchen we did not need to buy, including the white whine in the fridge.

mid century in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this attractive, well equipped and quiet spot in Palm Springs for a few nights in February. Very well located, great parking, low key and friendly. "Concierge" service was very helpful and responsive. Owner prompt and polite in our emails. Would stay there again.

Mid-Century Magic

  • 4 of 5

The Ocotillo Lodge is ideallly located in the South end of Palm Springs and is very convenient to downtown and close to many good restaurants. Bungalow 301 has been tastefully update in a way that maintains much of the vintage 50's charm of the original unit. The 525 square foot size is the perfect size for a couple and it is well stocked with towels, linens, cookware and really everything else that you need to feel at home. This is a single level unit that is an end unit and free standing so there is not another above you, there is a nice-sized patio and the unit is directly across form the heated, champagne cork shaped pool and the jacuzzi. All in all, the unit has everything you need for a fun desert get away. The Concierge who checked us in (Terry) was very professional, he met is at the unit and gave us a quick tour of the unit and the facilities within the complex. All in all a good experience and I would recommend it to others.
