Welcome to Vista Las Palmas
Combining peaceful desert living with restored mid-century homes, this quiet community is sophisticated and luxurious
Like many luxurious, reclusive Palm Springs neighborhoods, Vista Las Palmas is the pinnacle of celebrity and mid-century architecture. After popularizing the desert modernist style with the Twin Palms neighborhood, the Alexander Construction Company started building the tract of land known as Vista Las Palmas.
Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains on the northwestern side of Palm Springs, this neighborhood is yet another sophisticated oasis where Old Hollywood starlets lived in luxurious estates. From the famous Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway to a home once owned by Debbie Reynolds, Vista Las Palmas is a glamorous enclave rich with history.
