WSJ: Stunning Vacation Rentals with Pop Culture History
That little New York local rag, The Wall Street Journal, did a piece recently about stunning vacation homes with pop culture history. And there's no way to complete that list without Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms!
From the article:
Frank Sinatra’s heart may have been in New York, New York, but in 1947, he built this Palm Springs house with a gorgeous piano-shaped pool. Inside the villa are vintage touches like the original audio systems and an actual piano, should you want to serenade your guests or family. The house has even been declared a historical site by the city of Palm Springs. “It’s gone through many different stages of renovation, but always kept period-specific,” says Christopher Nobile, director of business development of Homes Run, the company that manages the rentals. “The property is a historical artifact.” For those who book Sinatra’s luxurious space, one thing that will remain difficult: fighting over who gets the plant room."
Frank's Twin Palms was the only Palm Springs Vacation rental in the list. Some others mentioned were:
- Jimi Hendrix’s Gingerbread House (Location: Maui, Hawaii)
- Willem Dafoe’s Rubber House (Accord, New York)
- The Grateful Dead’s Old Jam Spot at Swallowtail Art Studios (Petaluma, California)
- The Houdini Estate (Hollywood, California)
