Nestled in the Little Beverly Hills neighborhood of Palm Springs is a classic mid-century vacation rental home called Beverly Modern.
With its amazing architecture, stunning terrain and pool retreats, Palm Springs has been attracting everyone from celebs to designers and fashionistas to the Californian desert since the 1960s.
This Alexander home circa 1957 has been renovated and restored to its retro glory with the addition of modern day amenities. We can assure you that this is just the place to getaway and relax.
Beverly Modern captures a sense of glamour upon arrival. Bold colors with unique artwork and furniture will make you feel as if you’ve been transported to the home of an interior designer.
The kitchen is decked out with all new appliances and a stunning lime green tile. The kitchen comes stocked with all of the supplies you will need for a getaway: glasses, dinnerware, cookware and a coffee pot.
The fridge has a built-in ice and filtered water dispenser, so there’s no excuse for being dehydrated during your stay.
Gorgeous in its simplicity, as Mr. Alexander and his architects Palmer and Krisel intended, you’ll find clean lines, an open concept floor plan and very comfortable midcentury-inspired furnishings. The living room, dining
The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open to each other – providing enough space for your entire group to gather, relax and enjoy.
Beverly Modern features three trendy bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. All of the bedrooms feature very comfortable mattresses along with flat screen televisions and closet space.
The master bedroom offers a King-sized bed, ensuite bath and direct pool access.
The two Queen guest rooms share a bathroom that’s also decked out with luxurious bath products.
Each room is like a work of art with its perfectly placed pillows and bright pool towels.
There’s plenty of storage room in the closets. When you are hanging your clothes you’ll also find an ironing board, extra towels and pillows.
The outdoor entertaining area is full of fun places to hang out.
There’s a firepit that’s surrounded by an L-shaped bench with comfy black and white pillows – perfect for laying on to stare at the stars.
As the sun sets, the tall palm trees in the neighborhood come alive, giving a feel of a tropical getaway.
With a flick of a switch the pool lights up; in the corner of the backyard is a bocce ball court.
The entire back of the house features movable floor to ceiling retractable glass walls – that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs-style.
This home is very livable ‘very comfortable’ and very hip without being trendy.
There’s no shortage of places to sit outside – there’s a six-person table if you prefer to eat outdoors. Half a dozen lounger beds can be moved around depending on how much sun you are after during the day.
There are two separate eating areas after you finish cooking with the barbecue and two shade umbrellas. Sophisticated modern style certainly meets 1950s sensibility to create this fabulous outdoor space that certainly has the wow factor.
No matter which window you look out of there are views of the nearby mountains.
Even when the temperature is hitting 115 degrees, Beverly Modern is always comfortable with its air conditioning inside and the pool and shade outdoors.
