Historic Elrod Villa: Midcentury Modern Glamour - Luxury Villa with Private Pool


Home Description

The City of Palm Springs ID #1234. The Elrod Villa, located at the historic Palm Springs Racquet Club, was the playground to Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities. Originally designed for Sigmund E. Edelstone (wealthy industrialist, philanthropist and art collector) by Hal Broderick of Arthur Elrod and Associates, this masterpiece of mid-century design has been toured by The Smithsonian Institute, The L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art and featured in Architectural Digest (September/October 1975). Elrod Villa is a licensed Palm Springs vacation rental. 

Book us direct at www.evillapalmsprings.com where you'll find accurate rates and availability information. 

The living and dining rooms set the stage for elegant entertaining with soaring ceilings, extensive use of indirect lighting, fireplace, bar, and Italian travertine flooring that extend to the outdoors. Walls of glass overlook the terrace with a luxurious tiled pool, oversized spa and dramatic panoramic views of the San Jacinto mountains.

Space-age bachelor pad details abound with immense steel doors, a mirrored powder room, wet bar, retro-futuristic lighting control panels (including one hidden beside the master bed) and a thumping whole-house audio system cleverly concealed in gorgeous, custom hardwood cabinets. Today, we continue to enhance the villa's midcentury "home of the future" vibe with cool features including color-changing LED lighting, whole house streaming audio (from our device or yours) and tablet-based control of the pool, spa and fountain.

Gorgeous place!

We lived our stay at the Elrod Villa. The place is gorgeous, pool is amazing, and the sound system really is THAT good. The owner, Keith, was so accomodating. The place was clean and in great condition. We absolutely recommend it to all couples.

Perfect escape - luxury seclusion,

First off, let me say the spectacular pictures can't even do this wonderful home justice - it was incredible! Coming from what is sometimes thought to be near the Arctic Circle (Minnesota), Palm Springs was just what the doctor ordered. Plenty to see and do nearby, but Elrod Villa was the star of the vacation - nice to get out for the day, but even nicer to get back, enjoy the pool and spa, the artwork, make a meal in the fully decked out kitchen and just relax under the stars. Keith and Reed were both great to get along with, very quick and thorough on all inquiries and requests. Our only regret was our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We have recommended this place to everyone we know!

Unbelievable Home!!

I just spent a much needed vacation at the Elrod Villa and I can't say enough about this property! Keith, the owner, was so helpful before and during my stay. Keith (and Reed the property manager) was always available to answer my questions, so my vacation went very smoothly. Now, about the home...Upon arrival, I was very surprised to find that it was even better than the photos! This place is a mid-century modern dream and probably the coolest place I have ever stayed. All of the amenities were present; I could not have asked for anything else and the location is convenient to everything in Palm Springs. I plan on returning later this year and highly recommend this property! 10 stars!!!
