About

PSID# 4363

Located in Sunrise Park, one of Palm Springs’ most iconic midcentury neighborhoods, Michelle Blue is a stunning 3br/3ba home that combines both class and comfort for an amazing vacation experience. Originally constructed by builder Jack Meiselman in 1959, this home underwent a full remodel in 2020, maintaining its classic midcentury spirit while enhancing its space, ambiance and finishes.

Facing south, the home and yard have spectacular southwestern views of the mountains. The property is surrounded by a privacy wall that consists of original shadow-block elements common to the era. In the backyard, a canyon-blue saltwater pool and spa offer stunning mountain views. At the west end of the pool are several chaise lounges, backed by a large open green space. Nearby, an outdoor dining table for 6, and a stainless-steel gas grill await your backyard BBQ. The shaded patio offers more comfortable lounge seating that overlooks the pool and views, and a garden sanctuary at the east end of the property hosts a romantic sunset seating arrangement, complete with fire pit.

Guests are greeted when they arrive by a big blue front door, hence the home’s name. Inside, a soft and light color pallet is complemented by lots of natural light, and a smart, open design. Some of the home's original features, including tongue-and-groove ceilings, oversized fireplace and clerestory windows continue to add their midcentury magic to the space.

Kitchen: A fabulous custom tile backsplash compliments high-end (Miele and Bosch) stainless appliances, and loads of cupboard and counter space surround an enormous 8 person dining island.

Living Room: In front of a giant block-brick gas fireplace, twin heather sofas flank an inspired assortment of hammered-metal-drum cocktail tables. Playful pillows and a geometric rug add softness and texture. A 55” HDTV is mounted for family movie nights, awards season, or the next big game.

Primary Bedroom: Light and airy design, lots of natural light. King bed, walk-in closet, 55” HDTV, mid-mod furnishings, sliding glass walk-out to pool, west-facing windows with mountain views; en suite bath with custom tile walk-in shower.

Guest Bedroom One: Vibrant design, period piece furniture, king bed, dressing wardrobe, working desk, and sliding glass walk-out to private patio. Across hall access to guest bath with a beautifully restored original blue tile shower.

Guest Bedroom Two: Bright and lively design, mid-mod furnishings, queen bed, walk-in closet, 55” HDTV; en suite bath with custom tile shower.

Michelle Blue is an outstanding example of Palm Springs midcentury architecture and the perfect vacation paradise.

The house was perfect. They thought of everything! The weather wasn’t the best during our week stay, so we especially enjoyed the huge island in the kitchen which was perfect to play different games every night.
Also, any issues we encountered were immediately taken care of. You couldn’t ask for better service.

Fantastic house, well equipped kitchen - we are foodies who cook and loved it. The house is very stylish throughout with great furniture. It is a pet friendly house, we brought our sweet Doberman and she loved it - dog park is a few blocks away. The rental service is on the ball if anything is needed. Details to note, there is no formal dining room, 6 stools around the very large kitchen island which was great for cooking and eating, but we had to bring in an outside table in to do a puzzle. The walls are thin (mid-century construction), so toilet flushing at night is heard throughout the house and the windows are single pane glass. The master has a king with an en suite bath and TV, but the other king has a detached bathroom and no TV. The queen room has an en suite bath and TV. For two couples who wanted king sized beds with two teenagers planning to share the queen, it would have been preferred to have both kings with TV's and bathrooms attached. The outdoor layout is fantastic - fire pit, BBQ, pool, hot tub, lush citrus trees, grassy yard were all sublime and all gas is mainline. We loved our stay!

Awesome house.

Our original booking (All The Feels) suddenly became unavailable due to a gas leak. I was notified by Altamira Vacation Rentals the day prior to our arrival.

Despite the property being much farther than the originally booked property for an event we were attending, it was a welcome replacement.

Michelle Blue was well appointed with comfort amenities. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, etc, which is usually not the case. We arrived later than planned and the house was lit up and ready for arrival. The staff at Altamira was very friendly and helpful (and apologetic for the last minute change).

The decor is the home is adorable. The place was clean and comfortable.

We'll Be Back!!

Awesome house. We enjoyed the outdoor area which is even better than the pics. The outdoor area is expansive and we loved sitting by the fire pit and looking up to the mountain. The dogs loved ripping around the huge grassy area and we loved that the yard was totally fenced in with a double fence for when maintenance people arrived. Interiors were lovely as well. Every thing seemed new and was in it's place. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Home!!

For the second time we had the very best experience staying at the beautiful, perfectly-appointed Michelle Blue house. The first time we stayed there was in November of 2020, in the midst of the pandemic and a lot of fears, so this time it was much more relaxed and we were able to enjoy the house even more. The three bedrooms and three baths are great and perfect for us to travel with our grown daughters and their boyfriends. And we had additional family staying nearby so we used the backyard as a hub for some swimming and barbecues. Super fun! The house has everything you could possibly need and is also great for dogs (we brought our two dogs plus our daughter's - and the large backyard and plenty of room to hang around the house is perfect!) I would highly recommend this home AND fully expect to rent it again - hopefully this time we'll be back sooner than later!

Overall, we liked the property very much. It was kind of a bummer that the glass panel on the sliding door was cracked. But, we were told that the prior guest was responsible for that and that there simply wasn't enough time to fix it prior to our arrival. The cleanliness of the property was very good, however it would have been nice to have clean windows. Kitchen was very well equipped with high quality appliances and plenty of plates and nice flatware. Everyone enjoyed our stay.

Really fabulous place--even nicer than the pictures (if that's possible!). Spacious, VERY clean and well maintained. Every amenity you need. The landscaping was impeccable- So much attention to detail--little things like the way the beds were made, the toiletries in each bathroom. Views of the mountains were unbelievable--had so much fun relaxing by the pool, grilling and taking in the views, that we didn't leave the house for an entire day. If ever in Palm Springs again I would stay here again in a heart beat.

We absolutely loved our stay at Michelle Blue! This was our first trip since COVID and I was nervous for various reasons as there is only so much you can see by photos but immediately upon arrival we could see the property was immaculately clean and well-maintained and it was just as beautiful as we had hoped. Each room was well-appointed and had great touches (nice/comfortable beds/bedding, closets were roomy, bedside tables had plugs for phones, mirrors in each room, great showers, and all kitchen appliances were great and felt new). Also appreciated the blankets for watching TV or for when you're outside at the fire pit AND appreciated all the beat towels too. The neighborhood was lovely - great for walks - and quiet day and night. The back yard was awesome - - big pool and jacuzzi and our dogs loved the large lawn for playing fetch and the nooks around the yard great for sniffing around. We also loved all the seating areas throughout the yard (fire pit, couch area, lawn chairs) - really nice indoor/outdoor setting. We will definitely be booking this house again. It was so perfect for our family! We really had no complaints. The only thing missing was there was not a toaster or a tea kettle in the kitchen - but not that big of a deal - we were able to live without them! :)

Had a great stay. The house was just like the pictures and very clean. The check in and check out process was very seamless and easy. The only bummer was that the gardener and pool cleaner came while we were there however they were both quick and friendly so it really wasn’t that big of a deal. I would definitely book this house again.

I rented Michelle Blue for 28 days and every single one was perfect. The house is modern, convenient, well-decorated and comfortable. The outdoor space is like a private compound with a beautiful pool and spa, plenty of yard to move around it, and gorgeous fire pit. My only regret is that I don't own this house -- it's perfect.
