Mid-Century Private House: Comes with bikes, pebble-tec pool, spa, fire pit, close to shops and amenities

We have a sunny mid-century modern house in Palm Springs that is quiet yet a few minutes drive to the main street, and walking distance to groceries, Starbucks, and restaurants.

Here is what you get when you rent our house:

* 3 bed, 2 bath
* Mid-century modern architecture, designed by William Krisel, and built by the Alexander Company in 1959.
* Mid-century modern furnishings and art.
* Beach cruiser bikes with baskets: you can cycle to groceries, restaurants, hiking trails
* Two TVs, two dvd players, stereo/mp3 player, fully equipped kitchen.
* Updated and newly renovated with large island kitchen, many sliding glass doors to pool, patio and yard, updated baths, and polished porcelain floors throughout.
* Beautiful view of the San Jacinto Mountains from all the main living areas.
* Open concept and spacious with high, tongue-and-groove ceilings.
* Excellent location on quiet cul de sac, walking distance to grocery stores, coffee, and about 8 restaurants and lounges
* Short drive to the heart of bustling downtown Palm Springs with huge selection of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
* Very private, large landscaped yard
* Pebble Tec pool and spa/hot tub
* Outdoor loungers, patio dining, fire pit seating, Weber BBQ
* Sun and clear skies almost every day of the year (even when it's hot, it's a dry heat and combined with the pool and a/c it's comfortable, easy living.

Our house is great for either a sabbatical at the house or for a short visit while you are doing your sabbatical at one of the major universities in the Southern California area. We are confident you can get a lot of writing done if you visit our home as we have done it! It is 'away from it all' but close to amenities, and various major cities in Southern California (107 miles to Los Angeles, 127 miles to San Diego). We are 10 minutes drive from the Palm Springs Int'l Airport.

Palm Springs is a very outdoorsy small city that loves dogs, has plentiful biking paths, and tons of great hiking, swimming, tennis, shopping, and, of course, golf. You'll find a multitude of restaurants, theatre, live performances, museums, a casino, a spa, and a number of street fairs (including a year round Thursday night fair down the main street and an open market on Saturdays). It is a very open minded, laid back community that is relative small, very friendly, but has a huge amount to offer.

Price includes gardening, pool cleaning, and $250 worth of utilities (gas and electricity), and the assistance of our property manager if you have questions or need advice on staying in the area. Optional cleaning services can be obtained. Please contact us regarding holiday pricing!
