With its iconic allure and sunny climate, Palm Springs offers a wellspring of lush eateries, stately spas and five-star retreats – and best of all, a lot of nice lux rentals around town for the perfect weekend get-a-away with friends. The relaxed, desert town is known for being the ultimate in chic for the country club set. Whether you’re looking to escape the never-ending winter cold spells, improve your golf handicap, or swill Sinatra-worthy martinis Palm Springs got you covered.
The house was originally built in 1955 for Oscar-winning superstar Kirk Douglas, but was recently remodelled. Today they interior of the house ooze glam, its mirrors, black, white, and pinks everywhere, and who doesn’t like to glam it up every now and again?
The absolute best (and most needed in those summer month) feature of the house, is without a doubt the big private outdoor space fully equipped with a huge pool, deck chairs, roofed dining area, and a cute outdoor living room with a fire feature – with breath-taking mountain views of course. The weekend was hot, hitting 40+ degrees; so needless to say, we spent a lot of time in that pool, which actually just felt like a semi-warm bath in the sun.
The house has four mayor bedrooms with plenty of space to host 8 people. The master bedroom connects to a just as big deluxe master bath with a spectacular soaking tub even more glam than the rest of the house.
Nothing beats great weekend getaways with friends and if you are spending time in LA anyway, I would highly suggest you make the two hour drive out to Palm Springs. Even for just one night it is great to soak up the sun and get some pool time in there too.
