Filming & Photography
The made-for-television movie “Poodle Springs” starring James Caan, pictured right, includes a segment shot in front of the house. The estate has attracted many highly regarded fashion photographers such as Annie Liebowitz, Mario Testino, Martin Brading and Mark Seliger who have brought film stars such as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Elizabeth Shue, Jenny McCarthy, Priscilla Presley to be photographed there.
Corporate Parties & Seminars
Why not plan your next corporate party or seminar in the most prestigious celebrity home in Palm Springs? The sixties décor and beautiful exterior appeal to all. The raised circular platform in the dining area makes an ideal stage for lectures, panel discussions and presentations, while the audience is seated on the 65 foot long circular couch in the living room. In the evening this platform can be used by entertainers to create a night club atmosphere. It is truly a “rock-star’s house”. The convention center of Palm Springs and the International Airport are only minutes away, as are the numerous downtown hotels that are available for VIPs.
Weddings & Honeymoons
The estate with its private backyard and diamond shaped pool, nestles at the base of the San Jacinto mountains make this estate a breathtaking beautiful location for a wedding and a romantic secluded hideaway for a honeymoon. Next to the pool is a raised circular area of stone work which could be used as either a bandstand or wedding gazebo. The circular living room, raised dining platform and den are open to the pool area. This provides for flexibility in planning an indoor-outdoor wedding with or without the use of a tent. The estate can accommodate approximately 180 guests around the pool. For honeymooners, the private circular master bedroom suite offers spectacular panoramic views of the Santa Rosa Mountains and the Coachella Valley. The private master bath includes a Jacuzzi. There is a tennis court on the property which could also be tented and used for the wedding. Further amenities include limousine services, a butler, cook and/or maid are available upon request, and a location that is only ten minutes from Palm Springs International Airport. It is no wonder that Elvis chose this estate for his wedding and honeymoon.
Guided tours are available which highlight the marriage of Elvis and Priscilla, named by People Magazine as one of the eight great romances of the century. A docent will explain the memorabilia and comment on the many stories about them, including the fact that Lisa Marie was born exactly nine months from the date of the honeymoon. A short film will focus on the architectural aspects of the house and Palm Springs in general. A box lunch is available if requested and souvenirs may be purchased. Visitors will be shown the famous “escape route” which left the press in front of the house speechless as the famous couple flew to Las Vegas to be married. Also, visitors will enjoy seeing old photographs of Elvis “in the building.”
