The 17 Most Stunning Palm Springs Airbnbs: A Curated List

One of the best weekend getaways from Los Angeles is the beautiful desert oasis of Palm Springs, with its unique landscapes, brilliant mid-century architecture, and delicious dining options.

Palm Springs is one of those rare destinations where the place you stay is an integral part of the experience itself, as Palm Springs is one of the best examples of mid-century modern design, updated to reflect a uniquely California aesthetic and its desert environs.

While you could surely stay at one of the luxurious resorts in Palm Springs and enjoy some TLC and pampering, many people choose to rent an Airbnb in Palm Springs as it’s the best way to appreciate the architectural uniqueness of this beautiful city in the heart of the Sonoran desert.

I’m a bit of an interior design geek and spend far too much time on Pinterest picking out beautiful future home decor, and I had too much fun curating this list of beautiful Palm Springs Airbnbs for you all — I hope you enjoy!
