Palm Springs Rental Guide

Pools. Viking appliances. Stunning outdoor theater.

By The Editors

It may be stifling in L.A. at the moment, but give it a month and we’ll all be looking east, toward Palm Springs.

Because it’s, y’know, a dry heat.

And if it was good enough for Sinatra, it’s good enough for you.

Also good enough, and how: our Palm Springs Rental Guide to the best homes for rent.


  • A new build with floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive western views

  • A mid-century modern home with a “tropical backyard”

  • The Hamrick House, decked out with white carrera marble and Viking appliances

Before you dive in, a few words of advice.

While in Palm Springs, make a point to hike the frond-lined creek in the Palm Canyon area of Indian Canyons. Seriously, if you haven’t done this, it’s a must.

Also: plan to dine one night at the Purple Palm, a Moroccan-themed restaurant in the Colony Palms Hotel.

As for brain grub: the Palm Springs Museum is opening a new Architecture and Design Center in a renovated 1960s bank. Highly recommended.

So, there’s plenty to do.

Much of it involves doing very little.

So go do it. Enjoy the guide.
