Elvis Presley Honeymoon Home, Palm Springs

This home was built in 1960 and was known as the “House of Tomorrow” – you can see why…when Elvis first pulled up outside this home, he commented that somebody had gone and landed a spaceship!  Elvis rented this home for around a year starting in 1966, and paid $21,000 (£12,500). It is a 5 bed, 5 bath, 4,695sq.ft home.  The home was built in 4 perfect circles, so no room in the home is completely square!

The living room has a fabulous view out to the pool.  You can see that the steps to the right of the photo inside the house line up perfectly with the steps outside the home.

042 PoolIn 1967, it was by this pool, that Elvis and Priscilla were to be married and all the arrangements were in place.  However, a local journalist got wind of the wedding and set up camp across the road.  Because of this, they decided at the last minute to escape out of the back of the house in the dead of night, they took Frank Sinatras limo to his jet and flew to Las Vegas.  They were married the next day in the Aladdin Hotel before flying back for their Honeymoon, which only lasted for about 3 days before they headed back to Graceland.  The home became known as the Honeymoon Hideaway.Elvis & Pricilla by poolDespite how long Elvis did or didn’t spend there, it is a very interesting house in its own right and we really enjoyed our look around this lovely home.
