You Can Stay The Night In Frank Sinatra's Stunning Palm Springs Home

In May of 1947, freshly-minted millionaire Frank Sinatra sauntered into the office of E. Stewart Williams. Reportedly donning a sailor's cap and holding an ice cream cone, he emphatically commissioned the famed architect's first residential design, per The Guardian. Twin Palms, aptly named for the pair of trees that still stand at the front of the property, was among the first of many celebrity pads in Palm Springs built in the style of desert modernism — a then-emerging trend that quickly became iconic to the region.

Today, design and music fans alike can stay at the historic house, which features the crisp horizontal lines and floor-to-ceiling glass windows typical of desert modernism. According to Sinatra House, the 4,500-square-foot oasis features a grand piano-shaped swimming pool, four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a pool house, and period-appropriate furniture and décor. For $2,500 per night, guests can experience the luxury themselves in this gorgeous gem among the various celebrity homes available to rent on Airbnb.

Vintage design details are everywhere

Lovers of retro design will find no shortage of beautiful details to behold during their stay. In addition to its sleek exterior, the inside of the house is decked out in mid-century style and modern amenities that are thoughtfully designed to blend with the vintage furnishings, according to Sinatra House. Period-specific details include St. Charles cabinetry in the kitchen and terrazzo flooring throughout the house (via Natural Retreats). Large sliding glass doors connect the interior and exterior, granting easy access to the pool, which gracefully softens the house's horizontal profile with its curvy silhouette. According to The Guardian, the pool's likeness to a grand piano was accidental, but it is so apt for the crooner for whom it was built that it's hard to believe it wasn't intentional.

The home is decorated in warm wood and shades of orange, blue, and sandy beiges, with vintage art and memorabilia gracing the walls. Conveniently, art-loving visitors can continue their pilgrimage at the Palm Springs Art Museum, which is only a mile away and was also designed by architect E. Stewart Williams (via Palm Springs Art Museum).

Guests experience music history firsthand

Fans of music history will also find much to love about this vacation spot, including an original recording system, memorabilia, and, of course, Sinatra songs available for listening via surround sound (via Sinatra House). With the careful attention to detail dedicated to preserving the space over the years, the house looks much as it did in its heyday. Visitors can even find a chip in one of the bathroom sinks, where Frank Sinatra allegedly broke a champagne bottle during an argument with then-wife Ava Gardner. 

According to Sinatra House, the house first came into the public eye in 1950, when the exterior was featured in the movie "The Damned Don't Cry" and became even more iconic after photos by esteemed architectural photographer, Julius Shulman, were released for all to see. By walking into the home, guests join the ranks of a long list of celebrity visitors to the house, including John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and Milton Berle, according to Architectural Digest.
