Favorite Mid Century Home
We have stayed at multiple mid-century modern rentals in Palm Springs over the years and this is the best! Indoor-outdoor living is top notch. The very large and private back yard with pool and hot tub was outstanding. We will be back!
Desert Dream indeed!
Desert dream indeed! Five of us total stayed in this great spot to celebrate Friendsgiving and birthdays and it was the perfect place. A well-stocked kitchen (3 sheet pans?! 2 cutting boards? Full suite of sharp knives?) made cooking a breeze. The pool was wonderful -- offering sweeping view of Mt. Jacinto from one end with a ledge in the "deep end" to sip drinks and watch the sunset. The rooms were spotless. The great surprise was the fire pit and we loved spending evenings by it. Eric, who checked us in, was really fantastic. Great stay and we hope to be fortunate enough to be back! Stay notes: If you like the bed on the softer side, you'll love the master bedroom. The place comes stocked with plenty of pool towels.
My wife and I spent a wonderful couple days here celebrating our wedding anniversary. Will definitely keep this property in mind for future visits (given the county gov does NOT take away short term rentals).

Good layout for sharing - Salt Water Pool a Plus
A beautiful home well laid out and has everything needed for a stay. Quiet and peaceful location, absolutely gorgeous landscaping. As three adults sharing we each had a full size bedroom and bed (1 king 2 queens) all with patio doors to the outside. This means no one had to take a "guest" or "children's" bedroom. Although the master is larger and does have en-suite. However given the 2 bathrooms are identical it again just works so well for sharing.
The Salt Water pool was a real plus as there is no smell or sting that can come with a standard chlorine treated pool. We did not opt for heating the pool and did not find it uncomfortable temperature wise, however I did have to skim the pool 2 to 3 times a day as I believe with the heat turned off the filtering process is also not fully functioning. In the future I would opt for heating for that reason alone.
Definitely would return.

Cannot wait to come back!
First off, the entire rental experience with Oasis literally could not be better. Eva helped me with every single little detail and was beyond accommodating and helpful. I was travelling with my 15 month old daughter and she helped secure my baby rentals (crib, highchair, etc) and coordinated with the rental company for drop off and pick up. She accommodated all our special requests for our stay and was such a true pleasure to work with.
Now, on to the house! I stayed there with one husband, one baby, two parents, one sister, one brother in law, one husky (and a partridge in a pear tree). The house fit all of us! As a note, the bedrooms are a bit small, but they were completely comfortable for us all to stay for 3 nights with no issues. Ample storage for clothing, etc and the details to really make the guest feel at home were all tended to. The pool and backyard area were so beautiful and where we spent the majority of our time. The house itself is in a bit of an older neighborhood, but it really didn't matter. It was super close to all the great shops and restaurants in downtown palm springs.
Awesome experience, couldn't have been better. Rent this house!

Perfect Place for Us
We wish we lived in an Alexander house all year round (although we're not sure how it would adapt to the New England climate.) We loved the blending of outdoor and indoor space and the complete privacy of the backyard. The house was sensibly yet beautifully furnished. (I can't think of a kitchen implement we needed but couldn't find.)

A spring of joy in the desert
We spent a few days short of a month at Desert Dream, which became for us a spring of joy in the desert.
The house is extremely comfortable, well equipped and the bedrooms are well proportioned...
The gardens and pool area is the real joy of this house.

Desert Dream as Described!
We were made to feel very welcome by Michael and Claudia. We had a couple of questions over the course of the first couple of days and Claudia was very helpful. The property was exactly as described and pictured and the neighborhood was great; very quite and peaceful.
An utterly beautiful and cozy house!
Wonderful property in a superb location. The house is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully decorated and well equipped, a perfect fit for a family holiday as well as afor a romantic retreat. The pool is amazing - big and heated, and the attached hot-tub is a real treat. Everything from the warm welcoming upon check in to the end of our magical weekend was perfect, and Oasis Rentals have done everything to make our stay super comfortable and enjoyable. Highly recomendeded!

Up to our expectations
Nice modern, polished concrete floors, furnished white style and taste. Great pool and spa makes you enjoy the outdoors even in the colder winter climate.
Special thanks to Claudia, the villa manager who was of great help and availability.

Living the dream
The house and grounds are spectacular, 100% living up to the photos online and the personal recommendations we received. If you've dreamed of the perfect Palm Springs, private, mid-century modern vacation house, this is the place you've been dreaming about.
The saltwater pool is big and perfect, with palm trees providing options for shade when you get too hot, but never completely blocking the pool. The outdoor shower is really convenient (and fun) and helps to provide some extra space for the small but beautiful master bath.
The kitchen is well appointed and - especially for a mid-century - a perfect entertaining kitchen for friends to participate out of the way of the cook. Great grill by a perfect outdoor eating area that is mostly blocked from any wind.
Two tiny things that I would change if I could: the entertainment center is cloogie (but most are) and we got several ant bites out by the pool, never in the house. Really everything was just about perfect and working with Oasis was very easy.

It's a very nice looking rental. Seems quite large with the open kitchen and living room with all glass walls. Though the pool is smaller than it appears in the pictures, the very private backyard is quite large with lots of grass for dogs/children to run around in. (Don't leave unsupervised as they could drop into the deep pool when you run in the house for a sec). It's quite windy in June but as someone else commented, the high walls and foliage block most of it, creating a swirling coolness that is especially noticeable in all of the shady areas.
About the only downsides: at least two nearby houses are under heavy construction & I wasn't a fan of the polished cement throughout the house . . . though Desert Dream does have some rugs placed here and there. Honestly I think if just the living room area was carpeted, that would be enough.
One short block away from Victoria Park with its big trees & about 7 minutes by car to downtown. The Racquet Club area is not touristy at all & is very tranquil. I'd rent Desert Dream again or from other Oasis properties.
Everything went swimmingly
We knew that the air was going to be chilly, so my wife, brother and children spent much of our time in the luxurious Desert Dream salt water pool and hot tub. Hiking the hills of Palm Springs, checking out the cool shops of downtown and walking through the Racquet Club Estates neighbourhood admiring the architecture, then returning to the Shangri-La we called home for a week. Everything exceeded our expectations at the Desert Dream of the Racquet Club Estates.

This Mid-Century Alexander house was perfect for a peaceful time away from a chaotic life. The private large grass yard and pool size are great for lounging. The home is furnished with all the household needs...
Perfect Place to relax
I love the style and space of this home. The furnishings are clean, simple and modern. The cement floors keep the house nice and cool. The AC works extremely well . The yard was perfect for our dog. Wonderful quiet neighborhood. The Oasis Team easy to work with. The pool was just cleaned for our arrival. Bed is comfy. Slept nicely. We didn't leave the home except to go to the grocery store. We have stayed at many homes in the area - but really want to come back to this one.
Mellow birthday weekend with friends
Where do I begin... the house and property are a dream. The house was impeccable, the pool just right- not a hair was out of place. We made fantastic meals in the kitchen, swam, played soccer and volleyball in the yard, took naps in the sun... All of it was so relaxing and exactly what we needed. The only things we had trouble with were: getting the hot tub to heat up (it was the same temperature as the pool the entire time. The pool guy came by to clean the pool and also tried to fix it but alas, it never worked), Other than that, it really was an amazing escape and I can't wait to stay here or at another one of your properties again! Thank you!
From Oasis: thank you, Chelsea - apologies for the unforeseen SPA heating issue - will have it looked at ASAP.
Perfect get away
It was a perfect girls get way. The house was exactly like the pictures only better! The salt water pool and hot tub were wonderful. The landscape was beautiful. I think we might make it a tradition every year to go back during April vacation. The only thing that was a negative...the day bed in the living room is as hard as a rock to sleep on! Next time we would get a roll away bed for the 7th person to sleep on.
I stayed at desert dream and never wanted to wake up. Very well appointed home. Love the decor, comfortable beds, and a well stocked kitchen, good location, beautiful pool and garden, can't wait to return. Edward our house manager was very helpful and made our stay easy and worry free.

Birthday getaway with the family
We had a great stay at Desert Dream. The house is well appointed with high end appliances and linens. The furnishings are really comfortable, we didn't want to leave the house. The pool and hot tub are well taken care of as well as the yard. Since we were the 3rd party to rent the house, a few kinks were still being worked out. Such as the pool not being heated when we arrived, but we were quickly refunded the 50 dollars for the day. Other than that, the stay was lovely and can't wait to stay again.
