Step back in time to a 1950’s Palm Springs hideaway — built in 1952, the Coral Sands Inn is still a shrine to midcentury design. This cozy pink resort offers a Brigadoon experience for those who love the ambiance of old Las Palmas seasoned with a twist of whimsy.

Be transported back to the Rat Pack hideaway days that made Palm Springs famous as the “playland of the stars.” Relax around the original kidney-shaped pool framed by dozens of swaying palms and breathtaking, unobstructed sight lines into the nearby mountains. Or, take a walk through the neighborhood that boasts the original homes of Liberace, Elvis, Peter Lawford, and the Kennedys.

Renowned collector/owner Ruby Montana, who lives on premises, has created a relaxing but vivacious medley of distinct theme rooms — each providing the ultimate in kitsch getaways. The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Suite, the Liberace Room, the Yiddish Cowgirl Room, the infamous Poodle Room, and three more, each contain museum-quality vintage decorations from Montana’s private collection of western furniture, collectibles, folk art, and contemporary work by world-famous artists.

Those with discerning taste will find a treasure trove in each, uniquely styled room. The rest of you will simply find the homey comfort of a bygone era that valued optimism and delight.

The Coral Sands is conveniently located to the best Palm Springs has to offer: local golf courses, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of Mt. San Jacinto, many fine restaurants, great shopping, and antiquing to die for. Guests who know how to shop collectibles have no further to go than this palace of funk. A generous slice of Montana’s world-famous collection of vintage salt-n-peppers, cookie jars, bottle cap people, and more is on display and for sale throughout the premises. Montana and her herd of wild Chihuahuas — Louie and Lola — are waiting to greet you. It swings, man. You’ll dig it.
