Palm Springs is a glamorous city where historic homes with butterfly roofs and swimming pools reign supreme.

Located about two hours east of LA, Palm Springs has long been a hub for celebrities and snowbirds because of its desirable wintertime dry heat and palm tree-lined streets. Of course, the fact that it has a vibrant arts scene, impressive golf courses and clubs, and nearby natural hot springs doesn’t hurt, either.

When searching for an airbnb in Palm Springs, opt for a rental that emulates the area’s unique mid-century modern architecture. Since the 1950s, massive sliding glass doors, bright colors, clean lines, and in-ground swimming pools have been commonplace amenities. Because it does get pretty darn hot in the desert, take a look at the list below to find the best Palm Springs airbnbs with pools.

1. Mid-Century Pad

While you’re home, soak up the sun in the yard’s romantic daybed or jump in the in-ground swimming pool for a swim.
