Dream Houses To Book Right

Peter Dolkas

So, you secured a Coachella ticket, probably after setting 17 iPhone alerts, going on the black market, or cold-calling FKA twigs herself. But, no matter how you did it, you can rest easy knowing you’re one of the lucky ones (just like Veruca Salt).

After the ticket-scoring adrenaline rush subsides, you may realize you need a place to rest your head-banging head at night while in the desert. Fear not, for we’ve rounded up the best places to rent during the festival weekends.

Obviously, they all have pools and pillows, but many of these rentals take it to the next level. Palm Springs is a mecca of mid-century design, so these homes all boast drool-worthy interiors. It’s the outdoors, though, where you’ll be spending most of your time, so boomerang pools, putting greens, BBQs, and bocce ball courts are all in the mix. You’ll be so relaxed, you’ll forget why you came to Palm Springs in the first place. Oh, right, the festival!

Round up your friends, decide on a budget, and click through our slideshow to get even more excited about having that Coachella ticket in hand.
