Retreating to Palm Springs for a few days or even weeks on end is a dream some have, others live. Cuddled up at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains in the city’s sought-after Mesa neighborhood, this 3,000 square feet property can be rented and enjoyed as if yours for the duration of your trip. El Portal in Palm Springs, California, welcomes guests within a gated ¼ acre lot where freedom takes modern shapes.

Combining bohemian chic inspiration with sleek design lines that evoke their contemporary background, this soothing, bright and open cluster of indoor and outdoor spaces that flow from one into another bring the much needed relaxation we need:

“The front pedestrian gate opens onto the large front courtyard, with carefully planned desert scape highlighted by a concrete block drive and expansive green space to the left. Directly ahead a large vestibule leads to the homes’ main entrance and pool patio set beyond. Multiple large glass pivot doors provide seamless integration of indoor/outdoor living opening from the expansive Great Room onto the pool patio.”

At night, the large gas fireplace flaunting a white statuary marble hearth warms the atmosphere while the 70” flat screen TV above the fireplace offers modern entertainment.

There is also a breakfast bar seating three people, a formal dining area for up to eight persons and an outdoor dining area with al-fresco dining, gas BBQ and food prep area.
