Welcome to The Francis Alexander!

This short-term vacation rental is a sun-drenched mid-century charmer, built by Alexander Construction company back in 1959. This home features post and beam architecture, a rock fireplace, comfortable home furnishings, and plenty of colorful decor throughout.

If you’re looking for a perfect example of the Palm Springs indoor-outdoor lifestyle, then make The Francis Alexander your next desert vacation hot spot. You and your guests will walk into the vintage style living room where you’ll find fabulous yesteryear and modern furnishings that blend nicely against the wall of glass looking outside to the pool area.

With an open floor plan, it's easy to enjoy dining and entertaining with friends and family. The kitchen has been fully renovated with new cabinets, appliances, quartz countertops, a beautiful backsplash, and a tiled wall. It is supplied with everything you need to cook a gorgeous meal and just a few steps away you’ll enjoy the colorful dining area that sits eight.

Off the dining room is another living area, colorfully decorated with a comfortable sofa, a pass-through fireplace, and some marvelous décor that’ll entertain your group. Step outside to the patio and sit under the misters while enjoying a cocktail with friends, or float in the saltwater pool enjoying the warm sun. The eight-foot-deep pool has two in pool seats in the deep end and shallow seating the full width of the pool. Not to forget the above ground hot tub that’ll soothe your entire body after a long day of exploring the Coachella Valley.

The first guest bedroom can be found just off the living room. This bedroom retreat provides your guest with a Queen size bed, television, and direct access to the pool area. The other three bedrooms are located on the other side of the house. Each of the two guest bedrooms provide a Queen size bed, ceiling fan, television, and ample storage for all your vacation clothes. The three guest bedrooms share the bathroom located in the hallway which features a shower/tub combo. The primary bedroom features a King size bed, ceiling fan, television, en-suite bathroom, and direct access to the pool.

Outside you and your guests will discover paradise!  The larger saltwater pool is the epic center of the yard, and yes, it’s as refreshing as it looks – get ready to make a splash.  When you’re not enjoying the pool, you can ignite the natural gas bbq and have a cookout.  When the day becomes night, you’ll enjoy the fire pit that sits amongst a large patio sectional. There’s also ample sitting underneath the patio cover where you’ll find a table for outdoor dining – now that’s how you live the Palm Springs lifestyle.

This vacation home was built by the famed Alexander Construction Company and sits on a quiet street in one of the first Palm Springs mid-century modern neighborhoods, known as the Racquet Club Estates. This historic neighborhood was once the playground for the infamous Rat Pack and Hollywood celebrities, and it sits in a perfect location near downtown. Make the short mile-and-a-half drive to the famed Palm Canyon Drive and explore the charming shops, restaurants, and museums.

What a property! We couldnt have had a better time here - all of the amenities were so thoughtful and made birthday celebration for my grandma the best it could be. Cooking in the gorgeous kitchen and lounging by the pool were our favorite activities. The kitchen is throughly stocked, from platter trays, Tupperware, stainless steel pans, baking dishes, etc. thats not always the case in vacation rentals so we loved it. We opted to have the pool heated for the time of our stay and it was lovely. Will book again when we need a desert escape!

My family of 5 (hubby, myself, 3 kids under 10 y/o, and our lab dog) stayed here for just over a week and we we were very happy with our stay. We spend most of our time outdoors in the pool, and the backyard was perfect. The pool was big, and deep in the deep end end which my kids love to dive and canon ball. The home is comfy, modern, and very spacious. Plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing if they want. The kitchen was excellent, with everything anyone would need to cook daily, including a good spice cabinet. The beds were incredibly comfortable, I kept looking at the pillows and linens to try and buy the same for my home. We were very pleased with the home, the perfect backyard to hang out in all day, and the jacuzzi at night was like the cherry on top. The home has the Palm Springs vibe that we like to stay in, and I would highly recommend this place.

We had an issue with one of the showers on our 2nd day and Poolside sent someone out right away to fix it, he was very nice and professional. Poolside helped us out with an early check in because our flight got in super early, and the check out instructions are totally reasonable and not overkill.
Perfect for large groups! Me and 6 of my girlfriends stayed a few nights here, the house is so cute and in a really convenient neighborhood that still feels private. Our only regret was that it rained basically our whole trip, so we didn't get to enjoy the super cute & clean private pool! Also the beds were extremely comfortable. Would definitely rent this place again.

The Poolside team were incredible!
This place was a DREAM!! The decor was so cool, the house was airy and unique, all the beds were super comfortable and it was immaculately clean and well stocked for an easy stay (including a super varied spice cabinet)! Everything in the place was fun, from the awesome pool (and the pool furniture), to the cool 7up sign in the comfortable dining room. Our family of 5 had a truly easy, relaxing, and cool stay at the Francis Alexander. A wonderful and beautiful house that is everything youd hope from the listing. Can I give it 100 stars instead of 10??

Loved the service from the Poolside team.
The Francis Alexander house was just the right mix of comfortable and fun for our trip to Palm Springs. Our 3 couples and toddler grandson were able to spread out and also come together for games, meals and TV time. The kitchen was very nice with everything we needed.

Check-in was really easy, Team Poolside are amazing they even stopped by with treats! No suggestions needed:)
I went with my family and we had an awesome time, between the pool, the fire pit, the board games we did not have to leave the house. This house has everything you need, tv, stove, pans, towels, and very clean. I cant wait to go back.
