Welcome

The Historic Auric House

1930's Revived

House Details

A unique historic home in Palm Springs unites the privacy of a residence with the personalized services of a boutique hotel. Auric House is a lovingly reawakened 1930s Spanish Revival adobe ranch-style home in the Historic Tennis Club neighborhood, a short walk from Korakia Pensione. It sits in the shade of the San Jacinto Mountains, only a few blocks away from the restaurants and design scene of downtown Palm Springs.

Step across the threshold, and you’ll be transported to the early days of a newly glamorous Palm Springs in the 1930s, where the quiet of the afternoon is only interrupted by the sounds of your own guests in the courtyard’s Moroccan-style tiled pool. Auric House appears just as it did when it was central to the neighborhood’s social scene, the home of a prominent local hotel owner who was also the rumored inspiration for the Buster Brown comic strip character penned by his father. A rare example of a carefully preserved early Palm Springs home influenced by Mediterranean climes, its hand-cut stone floors and thick adobe walls are now the foundation of a contemporary, easy retreat.

Auric House can accommodate 12 guests in its six bedrooms, including in two casitas that are separate from the main house. Where Korakia is an adults-only petite resort, the private Auric House welcomes children. Ideal for multigenerational getaways, relaxing friends’ or couples’ trips, it is also a great option for housing guests attending a wedding at Korakia—or as the ultimate private compound for the newlyweds themselves. Its layout—main house and casitas surrounding a central courtyard pool—lends it to wellness getaways or small company retreats.

Your guests can socialize around the pool or by the big stone fireplace in the portico of the casitas. Let us enhance the itinerary for your special event with offerings such as a personal chef, guided hikes, private wellness classes, Joshua Tree experiences, a stargazing guide, movie nights and more. This is the Korakia experience at its most exclusive.
