Description

The Retro House
Movie Colony East neighborhood
City ID #3103 TOT Permit #3085

This is undoubtedly one of the coolest mid century modern homes in Palm Springs. With its original kitchen and colorful tiled bathrooms in beautiful condition, plus all the modern conveniences and recently renovated throughout, this home is ready to enjoy in retro style. Impeccably preserved and maintained over the years, it’s impressive enough that it’s been featured in the Modernism Week Signature Home Tour, a carefully curated tour of the best of Desert Modern Architecture, featuring homes chosen for their architecture, interiors, gardens, iconic features and grounds… those that epitomize Palm Springs and what makes life and architecture in the desert unique.

From the front entry of this comfortable 2,352 square foot home, guests are immediately welcomed by the home’s signature roofline and original architectural features and colors, plus all the newly installed Scandinavian modern furnishings and unique artwork. Just inside the entry hall to the right is the living room with fireplace, 65 inch HDTV and plenty of lounge seating for everyone. This is the perfect place to gather for cocktails before dinner. The adjacent dining room also has a fireplace, and boasts a huge oval dining table with seating for up to 12 hungry friends. The breakfast room and kitchen are just off the dining room, where you’ll find everything you need to cook and bartend for your entire group. There are two guest bedrooms off the kitchen, each with a queen size bed, HDTV, one with an awesome west view through its corner windows, and both are near the first guest bathroom with step in shower. The laundry room is also located at this end of the house, with access to the pool deck, as well as the driveway.

At the north end of the house, to the left of the front entrance, you’ll find the master bedroom with a king bed, HDTV, private bathroom with tub shower and original tilework, and direct access to the pool deck. Across the hall is a guest bedroom with king bed, HDTV, nice view out to the hedged front courtyard and direct access to the guest bathroom, so it can double as a second master bedroom. The last guest bedroom is adjacent to the guest bath with tub shower, and offers a queen bed, courtyard view and HDTV.

The real magic happens out back, where you'll step out to the refreshing and sparkling blue original kidney-shaped saltwater swimming pool, as well as the matching spa. The landscaping is a combination of natural desert scape and artificial turf to add color and texture around the sunning pads and lounge furniture. There is also a natural gas fire feature next to the spa for the ultimate in evening cocktail lounging and enjoying the mountain and architectural view back to the west over the house. You’ll also appreciate the outdoor dining (dining table for 10 is not pictured), fireplace and lounging options under the covered patio, and the natural gas fired barbecue grill. All combined, this is the quintessential Palm Springs poolside retreat!

There is also a two car garage and parking for two or three more cars in the driveway. Directly across the street is Ruth Hardy Park, with public tennis courts and play areas for the little vacationers. This home is also just a short walk to uptown Palm Springs, where you’ll find all the newest and hippest restaurants, shops and galleries the desert has to offer. It just doesn’t get better than this!

Sleeping Arrangements: Ensuite Bedroom 1: King bed | Ensuite Bedroom 2: King bed | Bedroom 3: Queen bed | Bedroom 4: Queen bed | Bedroom 5: Queen bed

PARKING
There is a strict limit of 5 guest cars allowed for this property, per City ordinance. 2 can be parked in the garage, and 3 on the driveway.

The house is fun and funky. The backyard and pool area are very nice and even though it was 110*, we still enjoyed a bit of fire pit time because it was so pretty. Now, when you pull up to the house to enter it from the driveway, I was a bit concerned but once you get inside, it’s nice. The air conditioning works fine but took awhile (like 12 hours) to cool certain rooms that face the sunny side but once it did cool, it was fine.

We totally enjoyed ourselves and was a much needed getaway. **VRBO GUEST**

This house was perfect! Great for family vacation. All you need to bring are your bathing suits and food. Everything else is there. 5 bedrooms with very comfortable beds are spread through the large home so provides privacy. The backyard pool area is perfect. Kitchen is well equipped.

We rented the house for my fiftieth birthday getaway. There were five couples, and the house was just right for us. The photos in the listing are EXACTLY like the real thing. The outdoor spaces were excellent for us, and the location was ideal.

We had a minor issue with the pool heater being programmed wrong, but Oranj staff worked diligently and persistently to get it corrected. They were easy to reach and very responsive.

I would absolutely stay there again, and would absolutely rent with Oranj again.

We had a great stay at this vacation rental. It has a lot of space and the backyard is as good as the pictures show. We enjoyed the days by the pool, and nights at the fire pit. There is a large portion of the patio under the roof to get out of the sun. At first it is a little disorienting getting inside because the front entrance is not at the driveway. So you go in by the garage and through a narrow hallway. The first thing you see is the washer and dryer. But after that the place is great. Lots of space for 10 people. **VRBO GUEST**

The house is spacious and management service was responsive (gas fire pit by spa had a broken turn on valve that was fixedly the next day. Iron and ironing board brought right away).

Smaller bedrooms didn’t have dressers so a little inconvenient with unpacking. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner and there was adequate cooking utensils and pans etc. plenty of seating for the 7 of us and we liked having bedrooms on opposite ends for quiet and privacy. Good location. Charming but old so sliding door is difficult to close and made a loud bang. Lots of lighting and genuine Palm Springs home. We had a wonderful stay. **VRBO GUEST**

The house was generally well stocked- there was both a French press and automatic coffee maker. The variety of pool floaties in the garage were the delight of our young niece and kept her entertained during our stay. The instruction booklet explained everything we needed to know, and we appreciated that much of the home was controlled by a single remote (spa temp, etc.) Everyone in our group loved the outdoor space, especially the fire area in the evenings since it got chilly during our stay (in the first week of March).

We loved staying at the Retro House. The decor is amazing! Wonderful location - just a short scenic walk to downtown. The house is very spacious, even for a group of 10 adults. The backyard is absolute paradise, with almost full sun all day until it goes behind the beautiful mountains. The house is stocked with everything you need. (Just a note this property is managed by a vacation rental company). We did not want to leave and would love to stay here again.

It was absolutely perfect. The location is amazing and we walked a lot from the home. Private and spacious. The pool was so warm! Everything was better than expected. Would definitely recommend for large groups.

A wonderful place for our family to be together over the New Years weekend. So many different scenic places for those who wanted to be alone to read and yet so many places for us all to be together to talk and celebrate, so many thoughtful touches, so well stocked and organized for our ten people, who ranged in age from 2 to 77. We all loved it.

So much space and the pool and hot tub were perfect for relaxing and with the mountains in the background the sunsets were amazing.
