Work Hard, Play Hard


Combining vacation rental company, Acme House Company, with co-working space Flannery Exchange adds up to a productive escape to Palm Springs 

3rd Rock’s resort-style backyard

When did Palm Springs go from cool to explosive? The city is emerging from the last few years with a slew of new places and spaces to explore (we love Boozehounds where you can bring your dog to lunch!) While the city boosts many boutique hotels, from the Ace Hotel and the Sands Hotel to The Parker, The Avalon and La Serena Villas, if you’re looking for something a little more private and residential, check out vacation rental company, Acme House Company

With over 100 luxurious and unique properties in their portfolio, plush with amenities from pools to putting greens, you’re sure to find the perfect backdrop to your stay to your stay in the desert. Two of our favorites are: the Pink Door of Little Beverly Hills, an iconic mid-century modern post-and-beam open-concept home whose eponymous front entrance is an Instagram favorite that invariably pops up  on the Modernism Week’s feed; and, 3rd Rock, located in Araby Cove, a prestigious neighborhood that boasts breathtaking views and an abundance of wildlife and was once home to Bob Hope and Steve McQueen. The newly-built home boasts a resort-style backyard with the Santa Rosa mountain range as its dramatic backdrop.

Though you may head to the oasis in the desert for sun and fun, taking advantage of working remotely means that there will invariably be days when work calls. For those times, consider Flannery Exchange. Located on North Palm Canyon Drive in the city’s Uptown Design District, it offers creative co-working spaces and inspirational roof top views. While it may not be poolside, with a coffee shop just off its bright pink lobby and retail and restaurant openings on the horizon, it’s certainly beats the office.
