The Most Stunning Airbnb Rentals In Palm Springs

Palm Springs is an upscale desert town that is known for having amazing pool parties, scenic landscapes, and endless rows of palm trees everywhere you look. Whether you're looking to plan an epic weekend away or you're looking to celebrate a birthday or bachelorette party, Palm Springs is a wonderful town that is worthy of being explored. While this lively desert town does have some amazing five-star hotels available for accommodations, there are several Airbnb listings in the area that offer travelers a more private and peaceful stay.

While staying somewhere like The Saguaro or the Ace Hotel allows you to be located right in the middle of some of the town's greatest pool parties and events, they can get a bit rowdy and overwhelming if you're looking to experience a more secluded and quiet retreat in the middle of the desert. From mid-century homes that allow you to unwind from the comfort of your own pool to retro-styled bungalows that take you back in time straight to the '70s, here is House Digest's list of the most stunning Airbnb rentals in sunny Palm Springs.

The bright orange walls and matching furniture create such a happy and inviting vibe, and while the style is a bit quirky and different, it is all curated with an impressive eye and attention to detail.

If you can bring yourself to venture out of the stunning interior of the home, the backyard of the property offers up some great amenities that include a specially-designed hot tub, a gas-powered fire pit, and a large outdoor seating area and dining table. This home provides the perfect mixture of indoor and outdoor living for those looking to take advantage of the more peaceful side of Palm Springs.

Pert the listing on Airbnb, the Desert Rose was constructed by architect Jack Meiselman in 1950. Though it has since undergone some revamping, the house has still managed to maintain its original charm that put this style of home on the map in the mid-to-late 1900s.

Between the sleek interior that features a contemporary kitchen with bright, yellow cabinets and checkered bar stools and the comfortable patio with a pool and lounge chairs, this house is a great option for those looking to live the authentic Palm Springs lifestyle.

Between the floor to ceiling glass sliding door and the colorful, retro décor, this stylish space really makes a visual impact despite being under 300 square feet.

While this Airbnb in particular might be a better choice for travelers looking to spend most of their time out and about exploring Palm Springs, the detailed design makes it totally comfortable and cozy so that whatever time you spend within the rental is as bright and fun as possible.
