This is a very unique house with many amenities. Situated in the prestigious gated community of PGA West between the Nicklaus Tournament and Stadium courses, it is large enough to accommodate around 12 people comfortably while being quite suitable for smaller or larger groups as well.
The tropical gardens are lush with bird of paradise, beautiful swaying palm trees, and fragrant flowering lemon and orange trees, and bushes of gardenia and plumeria. Not only is the location perfect for getaways, but it is also well suited to host special occasions and weddings as it has spacious grounds. There are three dining tables outdoors with enough chairs to seat up to 18 people comfortably.
For golfers, it doesn't get any better than this! The house was originally a model home, and is situated on the Jim McLean tee box with the Nicklaus Tournament and Stadium courses a stone's throw away. You can literally walk out of the house and onto the golf range to hit balls all day! It is only 30 minutes from the Palm Spring airport and 90 mins from the Ontario airport.
As far as bedroom configurations are concerned....in the main house there is one KING bed plus a FULL bed in the master bedroom, one QUEEN in the second bedroom, TWO TWINS in the third bedroom (which easily convert into a king), and one QUEEN pull-out sofa bed in the living room. The casita (guest house) also has one QUEEN bed. There are also some VERY comfortable sofas for any extra guests and additionally, there are three inflatable queen air mattresses that can be set up throughout the home. We have stocked the home with extra pillows and blankets to accommodate different preferences and also offer full down and down alternative comforters. All bedrooms have their own private bathrooms with showers, and the master suite and casita both have kitchenettes, bars (with refrigerators) and fireplaces.
The beautiful pool area with expansive stone patio surrounds the hot tub, pool, and gas barbeque/outside bar. We have recently upgraded to a saline(salt-water)system that makes the water feel silky smooth and allows you to actually swim with your eyes open with no burning or itching as a result. Great for kids and it leaves your skin feeling wonderful! There are plush lounge chairs for whiling away the time or napping in the sun poolside, an outdoor fireplace for telling stories around, and large market umbrellas for shade also. The stereo/CD player is wired throughout the entire home, including speakers on the outside for your listening pleasure. Perfect for entertaining!
The kitchen is fit for a gourmet chef with double ovens, all granite countertops, a separate bar and wine cellar, and where numerous seats abound. It is stocked with fine dishware and everything your family needs to make lavish meals, cakes and cookies, or just heat up frozen dinners in the microwave. The home has an open floor plan incorporating two dining areas, two living rooms, and a big screen TV for your enjoyment.
Each bedroom is fitted with a TV/DVD and there is a 55 inch HD (high-definition) flatscreen in the main living room. Both the living room and master bedroom are outfitted with Blu-ray dvd players. There are numerous games, puzzles, and even a game table with authentic clay chips for playing poker, blackjack, roulette, and craps! The home is also equipped with an IPOD stereo/docking station (so you don't have to bring your charger from home!)and DVD/VCR players with many new DVDs for your enjoyment. The entire house has WIRELESS INTERNET (wi-fi) for your convenience.
The jewel of this property is the lovely casita, which is a nice sized guest house that has a queen bed, kitchenette with it's own refrigerator and bar, full bathroom, tv, and indoor/outdoor fireplace. It has its own courtyard surrounded by beautiful gardens. Very romantic and private!
There are numerous shops nearby and more than 4 grocery stores within three miles of the home. Costco just opened and it is only one mile away. Other stores within a 3 mile radius are Best Buy, Wal Mart, Marshall's, Red Robin, Baskin and Robin's, and Smart and Final. Very nearby is downtown Palm Springs with boutiques and designer stores not to mention that Disneyland and LA are only a few hours drive. Come and experience all that Southern California has to offer!
We loved our time in this beautiful home and knew immediately we were not staying long enough. The six of us have been traveling together for 20 years and this is one of our favorite trips ever! The pictures and the descriptions are accurate - it is lovely. Lots to do in the surrounding area but staying at home and enjoying the pool and spa were best. The local property manager was very professional and responsive. We highly recommend this home.
We had a lovely time in this beautiful home. It is very well appointed and both the owner and the property manager were easy to contact. The garage was not available to use during our stay but the area security was very good and we felt very comfortable and safe in this beautiful, friendly neighbourhood. Everything you need is provided. We enjoyed the kitchen and dining but we also went out to several great dining spots such as Jackaloupe, and Hog's Breath which were close by. Loved Cabazon and all the great shopping at Home Goods, El Pasao and World Market to name a few !! Thanks Anthony and Autumn for sharing your piece of heaven with us.
If you are headed out to Palm Springs and need a luxurious, fantabulous (yes, fantabulous) place for you and your family/friends.............it just doesn't get any better than this!!!!! This house has all you need and then some. The owners are extremely modest in their description of this lovely home. And if you are a golfer, this house would be the equivalent of shooting a 59!!!!!! :)
Each year a group of my 10 girlfriends and I meet in the Palm Springs desert area for five days of fun in the sun. Some fly in, others drive alone, and some carpool. Each year our goal has been to find a place where we can relax, swim, and catch up with one another's lives. It is our reunion, if you will. Well in 2009 we were absolutely blown away with this home. It met every one of our needs and more! The beautiful bar area that looks out onto the pool and golf course is something out of a design home magazine. In fact, we all loved it so much we voted to return in 2010. The kitchen is large enough for 3 people at a time to cook. We all were able to sit down for dinner each night. And the plus for us was the outdoor sitting area. I can't say enough about how much you will love this home!
My friends and I drove up from L.A. for a long weekend at this house and loved it! Fantastic for hanging out, cooking, swimming, and of course, golfing. Loved that the golf school was only a few steps away. Thanks for a great weekend!
My husband and I and another couple just got back from a week's stay at your house, and had a wonderful time! The pool was great, the beds very comfortable, and the house clean and full of light during the day (which I really liked). I was worried the house might seem too large for just four people, but it didn't because of the way the rooms are laid out. No complaints except we wished we could have stayed longer!
