Famed Palm Springs interior designer Arthur Elrods' own mid century home. From the Moroccan inspired facade, to the wall of windows that wraps around the pool and spa overlooking the classic sanctuary of a back yard, this home is quintessential Palm Springs! You'll find a small citrus orchard, room for yoga, multiple outdoor retreats with a fire pit, outdoor shower, gas grill and outdoor dining for 6, and comfy lounge furniture under the stars!

This beautiful home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with beautiful pool/spa, fire pit with lounge and dining area in private back yard. If you love mid century design, you will love this house! It sits on one of Palm Springs most popular and architecturally exciting streets in Racquet Club Estates. Once the home of famed interior designer Arthur Elrod, this Alexander built home holds much of its original charm.

The living room/dining room has a wall of glass that looks out over a beautiful and very private back yard of mature, lush landscaping. The comfy lounge area with fire-pit is a great spot for evening cocktails or a daytime book reading. There is an outdoor shower for rinsing after swimming and an additional patio off the middle bedroom with a separate sitting area. You'll also find a gas grill for cooking outdoors, pool floats and yoga mats.

Back inside, the living room has a cozy vintage gas fireplace and plenty of seating, TV with basic cable, Apple TV for streaming and wi-fi. The dining room has a vintage wet bar and a lovely dining table for 6 people. The kitchen has many vintage touches as well, with peg board cabinets but modern appliances and stocked with all the modern conveniences.

This home is conveniently located 8 minutes from the airport, downtown shops & restaurants, public and private golf courses, art galleries and nightlife. Palm Springs area activities include world class golf, swimming, hiking, botanical gardens, desert landscape parks, water theme park, aerial tram, tennis, gyms, horseback riding and shopping (high-end outlet mall nearby).

Also enjoy nearby Joshua Tree National Monument (an extraordinary national park set in the desert). Theme parks within two hour drive include Disneyland (Anaheim) and Sea World (San Diego).
International guests will find Palm Springs to be an ideal "home base" for day trip excursions to all your favorite Southern California destinations.

The backyard is the showpiece of this special home! We had an absolute blast by the pool, grilling out and drinking around the fire pit. Stellar location with easy access to shopping, dining, and bars Downtown. We will surely be renting The Elrod in the future!

The Poolside team were SUPER responsive and kind when a big wind storm took out the power in the neighborhood for a short while - they kept us informed and comfortable while they pro-actively communicated the latest news on the power. They offered to bring by supplementary power but we ended up not needing it.
Lovely, quiet home with very cool original mid-century features in great condition. The outdoor space was spectacular, with sunny and shady areas throughout the day- Very roomy with a heated pool that was super comfortable in the cooler desert weather. The neighborhood is immaculate and quiet- its in a great location, a close drive to downtown and other nearby attractions. Would definitely come back!

My friend and I had a great girls weekend at the Elrod House. The neighborhood is very quiet, and we enjoyed taking walks in the evening to admire the fantastic mid century architecture. The trees in the backyard provide a lot of shade which made it very comfortable, even in triple digit temperatures!

What a beautiful Airbnb. We have two kids and it was perfect for a family of four. The outdoor shower is so lovely and private. Lots of helpful ingredients in the kitchen. The grass and lush trees provide running spots for your kids and shade during the hot days. Added bonus: individual alarms on each sliding door (that you can turn on) to let you know if a kiddo is walking outside.

The team at Poolside were gracious and very communicative - they even showed up with muffins one morning to make sure we had everything we needed. We couldn't have asked for more!
The best getaway in Palm Springs by far! Talk about the cutest house we could have stayed at. From the dcor inside, to the spacious backyard with large pool, hot tub, grassy areas for our pup to roll around in, and separate seating area complete with retro fire pit. This place has it all. The mini bar had everything we needed for creating fun cocktails and mocktails - blender too for those tropical drinks to keep you cool in the heat. We didn't use the indoor fireplace but didn't matter because it was a sight for sore eyes. Three decent sized bedrooms boast large beds with plenty of space to unpack your things and pretend you live there; I know we all wish we did! One of the bedrooms has a sliding door leading out to a secluded seating area, while the main suite also leads out into the fire pit seating area and has its own mirrored bathroom perfect for all the selfie angles :P The main bathroom had a tub and a shower, as well a sky light - I mean, get out of here already. The kitchen is adorable and we could not get over how cute the retro vibe in this place was. The seclusion of the large backyard really added to the feeling of a relaxing getaway with a shaded lounge area by the pool. We brought our own floaties but we did locate some in the shed on the side of the yard for future use because we will definitely be coming back. In fact I'd go so far as to say we won't be staying anywhere else in Palm Springs from now on.
