The Movie Colony

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Palm fronds and mountaintops peek over the tall hedges that make this Palm Springs ranch a private hideaway. It’s a departure from the area’s mid-century bungalows, with its Spanish Colonial–style stucco walls, tiled roof, and wood-beamed ceiling. Its location in the Movie Colony neighborhood means you’ll fit right into local life at nearby shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
The sound of flowing water greets you in a front courtyard with a burbling fountain, and continues in a backyard with a hot tub spilling into the swimming pool. There are lounging, sitting, and dining areas in the sun and shade, plus a firepit and outdoor fireplace for a little coziness on cool desert evenings.
Whitewashed brick walls and tiled floors look—and feel—cool in the indoor living room right off the outdoor one, while a sloping wood-beamed ceiling lends warmth in the 2nd living room. The separate kitchen is bright, fully equipped, and has a breakfast banquette tucked into one corner.
Developed in the 1930s and ’40s as a playground for stars like Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra, the Movie Colony neighborhood is still sought-after today for its palm-lined streets and well-appointed parks. Sign up for a tour of its architecture or explore on your own, stopping at boutiques, eateries, and modernist hotels for a cocktail or two. There’s also plenty of golf nearby, as well as hiking trails winding through the San Jacinto Mountains.
