Holiday Rental House
K0002 - Howard Hughes Mini Estate. This truly unique multi-level home is a midcentury modern desert paradise, including three master suites, a private spa on the downstairs patio, and a luxurious sundeck off of the living room, and upstairs bedroom, where you'll find two magnificent Fibrella patio lounges. The old Hollywood style swimming pool on the lower level even comes with its own cabana... so civilized! Recently renovated, the house still faithfully echoes its vintage midcentury roots with original and delicately replicated tiles and fixtures in the bathrooms, and the kitchen with its original surfaces and appliances. Nestled on the hillside in the Araby Cove neighborhood, the Howard Hughes Mini Estate sits just below the exclusive Southridge enclave, with homes designed for ...K0002 - Howard Hughes Mini Estate. This truly unique multi-level home is a midcentury modern desert paradise, including three master suites, a private spa on the downstairs patio, and a luxurious sundeck off of the living room, and upstairs bedroom, where you'll find two magnificent Fibrella patio lounges. The old Hollywood style swimming pool on the lower level even comes with its own cabana... so civilized! Recently renovated, the house still faithfully echoes its vintage midcentury roots with original and delicately replicated tiles and fixtures in the bathrooms, and the kitchen with its original surfaces and appliances. Nestled on the hillside in the Araby Cove neighborhood, the Howard Hughes Mini Estate sits just below the exclusive Southridge enclave, with homes designed for Bob Hope, Steve McQueen, William Holden and Arthur Elrod, by such midcentury architects such as John Lautner, William Cody and Hugh Kaptur. Here you’ll be treated to a 220 degree view overlooking the entirety of Palm Springs. The lovely combination of a desert breeze, undulating palms, and an expanse of stars and city lights will keep you coming back to this architectural escape. Perfectly designed to accommodate three couples, there is great separation of bedrooms, and each has its own HDTV, an en-suite bathroom, and a king size platform bed. Out in the living room you’ll enjoy walls of glass out to a fabulous view across Palm Springs and direct access to the sundeck with lounge and dining furniture to facilitate taking it all in... Palm Springs style! Howard Hughes used to own this very property as his Palm Springs getaway, as well as Eva Gabor, who you may remember from Green Acres, and Hollywood producer Paul Keyes. Robert Evans from the Godfather chose this as his honeymoon estate, and Smokey Robinson was known to vacation here often. **Per Palm Springs Vacation Rental Ordinance the maximum occupancy allowed is 2 people per bedroom PLUS an additional 2 IF they are 12 years of age or under only.
