The space
Located in the historic Racquet Club Estates district in Palm Springs number 444 is an immaculately restored Mid Century modern property constructed in 1959 by the renowned team of Alexander & Co, designer William Krisel with recently renovated gardens by modernist expert William Kopelk.

The authentic and stylish interior features iconic pieces, many original, from designers like Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Louis Poulsen and Harry Bertoia. Floors are cool fifties style polished concrete with stunning Warhol and Slim Aarons prints decorating the walls.

All modern touches and comforts are also at hand. The interior is 100% air-conditioned and the kitchen is equipped with all extras like espresso machine, coffee-maker, ice machine, food processor and Nutribullet.

Bedrooms have super-comfortable mattresses, crisp linens, quality bedding and loads of wardrobe space.

There is a separate TV room with sofa and a Samsung 44" flat screen with Time Warner cable, Netflix etc access (your own login) on demand movies & unlimited high speed 100 Mbps wifi.

The lovely gardens with their mountain views have been re-designed and restored by William Kopelk, who also was responsible for the famous Mid-Century gardens of Neutra's Kaufmann House (and is President of The Palm Springs Preservation Assn). Designed in low-irrigation desert style there is a small grassed area with lemon trees at the rear, fire pit and BBQ. The pool is heated and all is totally private.

An outdoor covered patio has comfortable seating, also has mountain views and overlooks the pool (heating extra cost of $45 a day collected before arrival via Airbnb) and gardens.

Within walking distance of the famous design district and just a mile from downtown the location is excellent. Take a stroll - or cycle on your very own bikes (at the property and pre-bookable as an extra) - around the local streets for a mini-modernism tour of the wonderful mid-century modern Alexander and Wexler homes of the Racquet Club Estates. Just a little farther, and also well worth exploring, are the Movie Colony, El Mirador and Old Las Palmas.

Garage parking with remote electric doors is available for two cars and off street parking for two more.

Well behaved pets are very welcome at a flat fee of $50 each per stay (we collect later via Airbnb).

The property is suitable for careful and considerate guests. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and noise needs to be kept to a reasonable level day or night.

Careful families with teenage and young children are very welcome but please note that we have NO specific children’s facilities at all and that pool use will need to be quiet and considerate of neighbors!

Reservations within 4 weeks of departure are sometimes discounted - please contact us for a quote. Four/five days usual minimum (request for less)


Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) or 'Room/Bed/Visitor Tax'

Since 2002 Palm Springs has required owners of all hotels and rental properties to collect a tax for those guests staying for less than 29 days. In the case of Number 444 the tax is 12.5% on your invoiced charge (not including Airbnb fees).

This will be collected directly by the owners (not Airbnb) once your booking is confirmed.

If you wish you may visit the municipal website for more information.

Where you’ll be

Palm Springs, California, United States

The Racquet Club Estates were one of the earliest areas of Palm Springs to be developed and retain an uniquely authentic Mid Century style. A large number of the homes in the area have been renovated to a high standard and the locality represents one of the high points of the Modernism movement in Palm Springs. Modernism Tours regularly visit the area and some of the scheduled Tours in Modernism week stop near the property.
