Nestled in Coachella Valley, Southern California, the desert resort town of Palm Springs is a year-round destination made for sun-seekers. Sunshine and blue skies are almost permanent fixtures here, almost as if someone pushed the button for “eternal summer” and forgot to let go. Rain is a rare occurrence. If winter wherever you live is a numbing and miserable affair, a trip to Palm Springs is the perfect antidote to the chill. Winters here are relatively warm; just pack a light spring jacket / sweater for chilly evenings and you’re all set.
Once a playground for the Rat Pack, a name given to a group of American actors including Frank Sinatra, who had luxurious homes in Palm Springs, the city still retains its celebrity glamour. Grab your over-sized shades, put on your sun hat, and slather on copious amounts of sunblock. You’ll definitely need it once you see these gorgeous poolside HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals:
Located just a few minutes from downtown Palm Springs, you can get to many places on foot from this lovely house. Alternatively, take a short cab ride or hop on the bicycles that are thoughtfully provided at this elegant home. Get your priorities straight. The first thing you need to do is put down your suitcase and jump right into the pool. This posh 2-bedroom pad has a terrific private pool and waterfall spa, set against a majestic backdrop of the mountains. The sunshine is too good to waste. Take your breakfast right to the poolside, and enjoy a resort-style breakfast with a view of the pool. The bedrooms are serene oases of pastel greens and blues. When you rouse from a good night’s sleep in the morning, slide open the large glass doors and step right out. A morning dip is just mere footsteps away. Don’t mistake that for a painting. That picture-perfect rectangle is your view, which you can enjoy as you soak in the bathtub.

Situated in the quiet Sunrise Park neighbourhood, this 3-bedroom bungalow has clean lines, an open-concept floor plan, and beautiful period-inspired art and furnishings that thoroughly capture the Palm Springs vibe. As the palm trees sway in a gentle breeze, close your eyes and stretch out on the chaise lounge chairs or laze away on the hammock. This is the way lazy afternoons should be spent. When the desert sun sits high up in the sky, escape to the cool shade of the house. Gleaming white floors, a sea-green dining table, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure that you fully enjoy your meal. When the temperature dips after the sun sets, light up the fireplace and gather around in the cosy living room. If it isn’t too chilly, dine in the company of fabulous mountain views and stars coming out to play after sunset.

Originally designed and built by the famous Alexander Construction Company in 1957, this glorious mid-century home has been given a facelift with a complete renovation. Sleek and stylish, it is well situated, just minutes from downtown and the Palm Springs Tramway. The Palm Springs International Airport is also a 15-minute drive away. The pool and backyard afford unobstructed mountain views, and have Richard Schultz 1966 collection loungers and an 8-seater dining set for al fresco poolside dining. The heated saltwater pool and separate spa are indulgent treats on cool desert evenings. Don’t feel up for a night swim? Curl up on the lounge seats in front of the firepit and relax. The pergola can be opened or closed via remote controlled movable slats to cater to sun or shade-seekers in the day, and some stargazing at night. Glass sliders in the living area can be completely retracted, connecting the common spaces to the pool and outdoor living spaces. The master bedroom is bright and boasts large sliding glass doors that open out onto a private terrace so a couple can enjoy a quiet moment of sunshine. The other 2 bedrooms come with queen-sized beds and private balconies.

Leave the kids at home; this stunning property in the heart of downtown is adults only, and all guests must be at least 25 years old. You’ll never want to leave this tropical paradise. Settle on the elevated sun deck with loungers on a carpet of green grass beneath a brilliant blue sky with marshmallow clouds, then cool down with a refreshing dip in the pool. Palm fronds rustle in a soft breeze that also makes small ripples in the pool. The shaded patio is a serene spot from where to enjoy the views with an ice cold beer. Chilly evenings make for warm conversations and hearty laughter indoors with a fire burning brightly in the fireplace, and a bottle of wine to go around. The dining area is immediately expanded to include the mountains once you slide open the glass doors. An outdoor grill is available for your use as well. The combination of sun and water can make us pleasantly lethargic at night. This master suite is elegant and inviting, ensuring sweet dreams throughout the night.
