About

PSID#34

Spencer Palms is a beautifully updated 3br/2ba mid-century modern home in Palm Springs' famed Racquet Club neighborhood. Built by the renowned Alexander Construction Company in 1959 (Palmer & Krisel Architects), this stunning home has recently undergone some major updates while maintaining its original mid-century charm.

New features include:
New solar panels so you know you're staying in a home that runs on clean energy.
New windows that open to let in the fresh desert air.
New shades for the windows to keep you cool and comfortable during those warm summer days.
Brand new roof for peace of mind during any rare rainstorms

Palm Springs is all about great outdoor spaces! Here, you'll find an expansive and well-manicured lawn, an enormous pool (33ft x 14ft), a six person above ground hot-tub, a gas fire pit with a comfy lounge area, a BBQ grill with its accompanying outdoor dining area, AND stunning views of the majestic San Jacinto mountains.

Entering the home from the circular driveway, guests are greeted by a picturesque vision of Palm Springs in the 1950s, as original concrete breeze block walls flank the walkway to the front door – a unique, and Insta-worthy, enhancement to the classic Anderson home.

The social spaces of the home are lined almost entirely with glass, providing natural light and beautiful views. The living and dining areas, with original vaulted tongue and groove ceiling, are decorated in the spirit of a midcentury home, with a clean, comfortable, timeless style. A large sectional and armchairs provide ample room for the crew to sit around the fireplace or the wall-mounted 50" smart HDTV.

The kitchen has been finished with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a large island with counter seating. A six-person oval dining table connects the living room and kitchen giving you picturesque views of our San Jacinto mountain range.

In the private space are the home's two guest bedrooms, a shared bathroom, and the primary suite. Each carefully designed guest room has a queen bed, a large open closet, and an individually controlled air conditioning system. The shared hall bathroom has a shower/tub combo and a skylight for added light. The primary suite also has a plush queen bed, a large closet, a 43" TV, a slider with access to a patio and yard, and an ensuite bath with an original step-down Roman tub shower and a door out to the pool area.

Whether you're relaxing or entertaining, this home is sure to accommodate you. Situated just a three-minute drive from downtown Palm Springs and within walking distance of two parks, this is the ideal location for any family or group.

Additional notes: W/D, pool floats, several outdoor chaise lounges, and fully equipped kitchen, no garage access.

We loved Spencer Palms. The outdoor area was a 10/10. Loved the house. Response time from Altamira was 10/10. Great get away for us to relax and enjoy sunshine and a pool.

If I am sincere, I was not impressed with the property itself as it was outdated and didn't feel clean upon arrival or the management company. I did not like or appreciate all the common-sense rules and threats that were in place. In my opinion, these rules and threats are entirely unnecessary and detract from the overall experience of living on the property.

I believe that a more welcoming and understanding approach from the management company would significantly improve the overall atmosphere of the property. It is essential to foster a sense of community and mutual respect among guests rather than relying on threats and rigid rules to maintain order.

I understand that managing a property can be challenging. Still, I believe there is always room for improvement, and a more customer-centric approach would benefit both the residing guests, the homeowner, and the management company in the long run.

We travel extensively both in the US and abroad, generally opting to stay in a house versus a hotel and we have never experienced so many rules followed by threats. Most of the places we rent are in the $20K plus per week range.

As such, we will opt for a different experience next time we’re in Palm Springs.

10 out of 10

February 2024

Overall

This was a lovely vacation rental in a great location that fit my family well. We really enjoyed it. The only downside was that the Jets and the Jacuzzi did not work. I really didn’t want to spend time calling the owners to come out and fix it since the Jacuzzi did get really hot that was enough for me. If they could fix this then I think it would be a 10 out of 10.

Manager's Response

Matthew, thank you for taking the time to review Spencer Palms in Palm Springs. We are very sorry to hear that the jets in the jacuzzi did not work. We wish you would have given us a call so we could've tried to remedy the issue and better your stay. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to the opportunity to have the jets fixed for your return. Altamira Vacation Rentals

Great house for a family trip to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. Pool is fantastic. Altamira host is local and very responsive to any questions/issues. Location is on a quiet street, quick drive to downtown and grocery. Would stay again.

Outdoor area is gorgeous!

We had a great stay at Spencer Palms! The outdoor area is truly gorgeous. The pool is large, yet the area around the pool is also large and spacious. The gardening is well done and makes it feel like a real oasis. The home is smaller (~1200 sq ft), but still worked well for our family of 5 + 2 adult grandparents. It's also super close to downtown Palm Springs, which is a big benefit. Altamira is extremely responsive and helpful -- one of the best vacation rental management companies we've ever worked with!

We rented this house for 16 days. The house and pool were true to the images online. The staff was very responsive to a few random acclimation issues. I would l]highly recommend this listing. The decor is modern and my favorite part was how the living room, fire pit, and outdoor living room all blended beautifully for an expansive, comfortable feel.

Totally Fun!

A few quirks affected our rating of this nice place to stay: poorly functioning refrigerator (not cold enough to make ice or keep food fresh) and missing cranks for opening windows to enjoy fresh air & improved circulation.

Perfect Thanksgiving Home!

This is a lovely home in a very sweet neighborhood. Easy to get out and walk in a friendly community. Grocery is close by. Fabulous backyard and the pool was amazing. We enjoyed Thanksgiving in this home and the kitchen was well appointed to prepare our meal. Altamira was a delight to rent from and the communication and response time was easy.

Perfect Stay!

This is a beautiful home to complement a perfect stay in Palm Springs. In fact, as a family with two kids, this was our destination and we really found little reason to venture out to the city. The pool was perfect in the desert heat and we loved lounging around the spacious property.

Fantastic!

We really enjoyed the home, location, and especially the backyard. Beautiful view of the mountains and the landscaping was nice. We especially liked the variety of outdoor seating areas and the fire pit for the evening.

Great house - Great location

I can honestly say, stay at this home in Palm Springs and you will not be disappointed one bit. The location is very central. It's a short ride/mid-range walk to lots of shops and restaurants. It's also about a 5 minute drive to 2 grocery stores which makes it super convenient. The house itself is outstanding, and mostly because of the outdoor space. The pool is awesome and very spacious. The hot tub is just what you would expect. There are also ample areas for seating outside which are perfect for relaxation. The beds are also extremely comfortable. The TVs in the house have Fire TV sticks, but you have to log in with your own credentials to use them. Not anything that I would not book this place because of, but just an annoyance.
