Photos and Description of this Vista Las Palmas holiday house

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, sleeps 8

Incredible views on the premier street in Vista Las Palmas. This Classic Alexander Mid Century Modern has a rich Hollywood Past (Oscar nominee Jackie Cooper lived here!). Come enjoy the knock down Mountain Views towering behind the house...Stretch out by the saltwater pool and grab a drink- and get ready for serious rest, relaxation and fun! This Palm Springs Alexander was taken down to the studs and restored to its original splendor... Walls of glass and the dead-on mountain views- the ultimate in California indoor/outdoor living. The house offers everything imaginable outside- supercool firepit lounge for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful views at night, an outdoor BBQ island right off the kitchen. The kitchen window opens up all the way so you can connect the outdoor BBQ area to the indoors kitchen- making it one seamless indoor outdoor experience. This house truly offers the best in California outdoor living. Simple, Elegant, FUN!

The classic MidCentury open style of this Alexander makes it a perfect entertaining space. The kitchen and dining area connect to the great room with vaulted exposed beam ceilings, 56' wall-mounted TV, a huge circular couch, large windows with incredible Mountain Views and several sliding glass doors providing an abundance of light inside this hip desert retreat. Bring your Ipod and plug into the home sound system You’ll find the kitchen well stocked with anything you might need to enjoy and have a great time.

The 4 bedrooms comfortably furnished with Queen beds, fresh linens and alarm clocks with Ipod docks. All have their own TV. Two bedrooms have their own private patio space with chairs to relax among the fruit trees. Ensuite baths for the two master suites at opposite ends of the bedroom wing. The bathrooms are new and updated with Skylights and windows to keep things light and bright.

Every last detail of this house is brand new; new bathrooms, new kitchen with stainless appliances and ceaser stone counter tops, new salt water pool and spa.

The views, from inside and out, don't get any better than this.

The location is terrific, walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and the famous Palm Canyon Drive Strip. People are attracted to the neighborhood for the same attributes that made it popular originally. Vista Las Palmas is close to downtown -- 15 minutes by foot -- yet feels remote because it lacks streetlights and through traffic, has all utility lines buried, and is in the shadow of the San Jacinto Mountains.

Residents love gazing at the hills, which provide the neighborhood with an awesome backdrop. You wake up and see the mountains and your pool. Imagine back in the heyday when Jackie Cooper owned this house- Think that Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra could have cavorted out by the pool... Peter Lawford's open-beamed home is in Vista Las Palmas- imagine Marilyn Monroe stopping by -- and so, people say, did Jack Kennedy.

House is not child proof; the pool is not separated from the house –

not recommended for children under 8

We closely follow the City of Palm Springs Vacation rental ordinance. No Outdoor Music permitted, Max overnight guests 10, max daytime guest 15.

About Margaret Healy

I grew up in and Eichler in Northern California and love Mid Century Modern Architecture. Palm Spring has always had a strong pull for me and I enjoy coming down as much as possible.

Margaret Healy purchased this house in 2006

Why Margaret Healy chose Palm Springs

Vista Las Palmas has a wonderful history and the best views in Palm Springs. When I found this house was in a sad state. It had been remodeled into a Spanish Style Adobe in the 80's and had sat partially demo'd for over a year before I bought it. It took the work of a talented architect to see the true Alexander bones underneath all the mess. I am proud to have brought her back to life- and still can't get over the Mountain Views.

What makes this house unique

This house isn't a rental- it's my dream home. I like to share it with others who will enjoy it as much as I do. The location is awesome too.

Retro chic stay in great Palm Springs neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay at this Palm Springs paradise! Loved the saltwater pool with backyard views of the mountains, nice to have a hottub for the cooler windier nights, but would've liked more pool floaties (only two for a ten person house). Great outdoor fireplace and comfortable sofa lounge area. House is decorated in funky 50s fashion with lots of fun pop art. Air conditioning in the main rooms is great, but you have to leave the doors of the bedroom at night if you don't want to overheat. Kitchen is large and equipped with a lot of cooking accessories and utensils. Outdoor dining table was great. The only con was seeing an overflowing garbage can in the garage upon arrival, but other than that we had a fantastic stay and will be back again!

Wonderful house with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

This property is great, open layout, comfortable and well equipped. Bedrooms and beds are comfortable. We had wonderful days in the backyard jumping up and down in the pool and sunning. The view of the Mountains was fantastic and the neighbourhood is quiet and feel safe. Easy checkin and manager always answering friendly. We would definitely recommend this property!

Fantastic 5 week stay at Vista Las Palmas

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the home for 5 weeks, Feb-March 2016. Home is a cool mid-century modern home so minimalist in decor but very appropriate and cool. Bedrooms and beds and mattresses were very comfortable and home easily accommodated 6 adults for 10 days and it could accommodate 8 easily. Very nice yard with great pool, spa and wonderful fire pit.

Marshall and Margaret both responded promptly and professionally to answer questions and/or attend to anything that I needed regarding the home.

Home is in a great neighborhood and a very nice walk in the morning for coffee, breakfast at Koffi, Cheeky's or Cafe Europa. We usually drove to dinner when we went out just because it gets very dark but you could walk to Palm Canyon Dr and downtown which we did do during the day a few times.

It is a great house to just stay at and enjoy the pool etc also which I did on many days but also very close to everything Palm Springs has to offer and close to many good restaurants...our favorites were Trio, Eight4Nine, Jake's, Tropicale and for breakfast Cheekys.

I definitely recommend this house and would definitely rent it again.

Perfect relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was clean & well maintained.

Instructions for use were clear. Location is terrific--at the foot of the mountains (sunrises on mountains were spectacular) and a nice, easy walk to town and some favorite places: Trios, Cafe Europa & Koffi.

And the house! SO WELL outfitted for cooking, relaxing and entertaining. Great that all 4 bedrooms to have tvs and easy bathroom access & their own patios.

Backyard & pool area were perfect for sunning and soaking, dining and relaxing. Perfect vacation spot!

Vista Las Palmas is close to downtown -- 15 minutes by foot -- yet feels remote because it lacks streetlights and through traffic, has all utility lines buried, and is in the shadow of the San Jacinto Mountains. Residents love gazing at the hills, which provide the neighborhood with an awesome backdrop. When you wake up you to see the mountains and your pool. Rose is the closet street to the Mountains and is widely considered the nicest street in all of Vista Las Palmas.

Palm Springs area activities include world class golf, Las Vegas-style casinos, swimming, hiking, botanical gardens, desert landscape parks; Knott's water theme park, aerial tram, tennis, gyms, horseback riding, shopping (premium brand outlet mall nearby), fine dining.

The ultimate desert playground for outdoor adventure, arts and culture, gaming and entertainment. Whether you are planning a family vacation, couple who wants a romantic retreat, or want a girlfriend’s getaway…Palm Springs is “Fun in the Sun” year-round.
