First impressions are important, and we know you will fall in love when you drive into the long circular driveway surrounded by Palm trees and exquisite desert landscaping. On each side of this half acre property, are unique artist designed gates; on one side leading to an optional RV parking, on the other a citrus grove. As you walk through the beautiful wrought iron double entry doors, you will be dazzled by the high ceilings and HUGE open living area.
The kitchen is state of the art, with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, beautiful cabinets and everything you need for large family dinners or cozy romantic celebrations. The living room is equipped with a 60" HD LCD TV with DISH satellite. Wireless internet and free landline telephone to U.S. and Canadian numbers included. There are several cozy seating areas designed with comfort in mind. The bright, breakfast nook seats six with another four seats at the counter.

The master bedroom is very large and luxurious. From the gorgeous Eastern King bed you can view your 52" Sony Bravia LCD TV, you can watch the cozy fire on the two-sided fireplace creating atmosphere in the bedroom as well as in the spa bathtub.

The backyard is designed for enjoyment and outdoor living. A large pool with Jacuzzi enhanced by a spacious stone deck where you can read or soak up the sun is just a small part of this huge backyard.

Palm Springs has always been the place to go if you are fortunate enough to find a hotel room during the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament or the Coachella and Stagecoach Music festivals, various golf events, film festival etc. After so many of my East Coast friends bought properties in Palm Springs away from the snow, sludge and gloom of harsh winters, I thought- I must be crazy not to join in on the fun. As a Realtor, I had access to all the information, and after 9 months of intensive searching, I saw this house and actually lost my breath when I first walked in. After a year of decorating and redoing, I decided to share my find with people who will enjoy it as much as my family and I do.
Mornings in the desert are my favorite, so serene and quiet, I enjoy sitting by the pool with my coffee and watching the mourning doves drink water out of the spa. I always wake up happy, refreshed and feeling as though I don't have a worry in the world. The evenings are so much fun in Palm Springs, the cafe and restaurants in the area rival some of the well known Los Angeles eateries without the hype and attitude. People here seem to be much friendlier and more relaxed than in "the city".
Our family (Mom/Dad and three married children and spouses) spent Thanksgiving week at Marina’s house in Palm Springs. It was wonderful. We had planned a Lot of activities in the surrounding area, but, the house was so comfortable, we ended up spending most of our time hanging out at the house.
First: the house is huge.
Each family unit had their own bedroom suite. One of the bedrooms has a second bedroom attached-perfect for our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. And the Master Bedroom? Awesome!
The Living area is so spacious and comfortable. Room for groups to sit, talk, eat, read and play games all at the same time. Another review already said that the house is better than the photos, I agreed within the first two seconds of walking in the front door…
And then there is the backyard… Amazing…
During the day:
I loved the ¾ size tennis/paddle court. My youngest son and I played each day-when we could get on the court! It was a big hit with the whole family.
Of course, the pool was a major source of fun.
During the night:
Tossup between the fire pit, the barbeque, the hot tub, the lighted, heated pool (again!) playing board games on the many tables in and around the house and watching old family videos on the huge plasma TV with the semi-circle sofa!
Actually, we really only left the house a few times, “to do some things”, because we felt we had to … we had planned on the house being “home-base” for our trip; instead, it became our home for the trip.
We have to mention the kitchen, after all we did prepare Thanksgiving Dinner there (as well as a week’s worth of other meals and snacks): My wife and daughter-in-law are a professional baker and chef, they thought it was magnificent.
Marina and Ivan? Awesome! They greeted us at the house and within minutes made us feel like they knew us for years. The first Sunday there, I had a question on the pool, nothing major; they immediately sent over the “pool guy” to hold my hand… Marina called several times during the trip to make sure everything was to our liking-she really cared… and made us feel valued and special…
We wanted everything to be perfect for this trip-and it was! Thank-you Marina and Ivan.
Love, love, love this wonderful home. Fun for all ages. The gardens were in full bloom and there is always shade to enjoy reading, looking at the flowers or watching the kids play in the pool or the 3/4 tennis court! Everyone used the pool and hot tub. So much fun and such a nice temp. We did many hikes, each one so different. We golfed and enjoyed a few nights out but no one wanted to be gone very long. We played family games in the dining area and enjoyed the fire pit at night. I can't imagine anyone not loving this home. Thank you Marina for sharing your home. Also, thanks to Ivan for helping us on a few minor things that came up. This home is clean and well maintained. We would recommend this home to others.
I recently stayed here for a bachelor party over Labor Day weekend. It rarely say this with rental properties, but the pictures don't don't it justice! The property was every bit as luxurious and comfortable as you want it to be with enough room form me and 5- 6'6 buddies to not be cramped. There are plenty of beds, a ton of seating and great amenities. As nice as the "inside" is, I'd have to say that the backyard steals the show. The lanai and fire pit areas are particularly nice. Even with the 105+ degree weather that we experienced we still made good use of the pool and outside area(s) throughout the day. The only thing i'd warn is that if you are a techie, the WIFI isn't particularly strong so don't expect to stream anything or cast with Chromecast. Other than that I wanted to mention that Marina is AWESOME! She is really communicative, responsive and was there to greet us when we arrived which I thought was a nice touch. If/when we decide to take another Palm Springs Trip this is the only place we'll be staying.
I highly recommend renting this home - it has every modern convenience you could want (hot tub, pool, paddle tennis, grill, fire pit, A/C, huge kitchen, TVs, fireplaces, plenty of room to dance - i mean sleep) and the owner is very helpful and communicative throughout the process. It was beautifully maintained and everything worked properly and was explained to me by the property manager when I arrived. My sister's bachelorette party was a huge success because of this house - we were there for 2 whole days and only left once for 2 hours for dinner!! Thanks, Marina!
What can I say about this absolutely beautiful haven! I have taken my staff on retreats for the last 15+ years and this beautiful home is their favorite! My girls enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the pool and playing tennis! The home was an easy drive from Highway 111; therefore, we were minutes from the downtown shops and eateries! Marina, the owner, is an absolute sweetheart. She met me when I arrived to show me around and how everything worked. That was amazing....no wasting time trying to figure out how to do this or that. She takes a lot of pride in her rental properties and was awesome to work with. My staff is begging me, already, to go back next year!
We had a girls getaway at this phenomenal home and couldn't be more thrilled with everything! The house is gorgeous with tons of amenities and the backyard area was equally amazing with lots of lounge chairs, umbrellas and seating areas. The house is in pristine condition and immaculate. Also, just like the other reviewers noted, the house is huge and was more than spacious for the 5 of us. And since we are all moms, it was was great for each have our own room and bathroom!
Marina, the owner, is a doll, and Ivan, her property manager, was also so sweet to stop by and make sure that everything was in order and if we had any questions.
We could not ask for more for our weekend and quite simply the house exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this property to friends/family (or anyone!) and are already thinking about our next girls weekend there!
