Twin Palms a.k.a. Sinatra House
Built in 1947 to serve as Frank Sinatra’s weekend retreat (according to lore, he paid for the house and architect E. Stewart Williams’ services with his first big paycheck from MGM), Twin Palms has been lovingly transformed into a four-bedroom vacation rental. While the original recording studio, piano-shaped pool, and scattered Sinatra memorabilia are the main draw, the property itself is a pillar of mid-century architecture. The kitchen has been upgraded with brand new Viking appliances and modern amenities are all accounted for, but the mid-century furnishings and famous cracked sink (a byproduct of one of Sinatra’s and Ava Gardner’s many marital tiffs) do a good job of preserving the home’s history.
