Overview

Palm Desert House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Escape to a totally private backyard oasis in Palm Desert. Palms, jasmine, bougainvillea, oleander, hibiscus, grapefruit and birds-of-paradise surround the newly refinished pool and spa. The yard has areas of full-sun and full-shade plus you can mellow out on the covered patio complete with ceiling fan for those hot afternoons and evenings. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac so you won't be bothered by highway or road noise. And since the home is a block from the golf course (not on the fairway) you won't have golf balls being hit into your lap. Nor do you have to endure golfers oggling you while you suntan or enjoy the pool. The pool, spa and patio are totally private.

Our home was totally remodeled in the past few years with new cabinets, counters, tile, carpeting and paint. Plus all the furnishings, linens and kitchenware are up-to-date.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create gourmet meals and all appliances, cookware, dinnerware (Mikasa) and utensils are high end. There's a big bar b q on the patio and it's natural gas so you don't have to worry about running out of propane halfway through a meal, or driving to a gas station to have the tank refilled.

Nothing ruins a vacation more than a bad sleep on a sub-standard bed. That won't happen in our home as we furnished with top-of-the-line Euro Top deep mattress beds. Plus the pillow/sham combination will offer you three different pillow choices to ensure a great night's sleep.

Relax in the leather recliner or recliner-sofa and watch your favorite high-def shows or movies on the 50' high def TV.. The cable package includes all the high def channels plus a DVR so you can record your favorite shows and movies - and golf tournaments - and watch them at your leisure. We also offer a small movie library for your enjoyment.

The backyard offers total privacy with 4 loungers and a 6 person dining table with chairs. The kidney shape pool and spa are centerpieces for the backyard. And there's lots of pool toys and floats to use. And if you fill up the hummingbird feeder you'll be treated to hours of fun watching them. Sometimes near dusk you'll see 4 or 5 around the feeder at the same time.

KID FRIENDLY! We have a 'Pack 'n Play, booster seat, infant 'safety bath', life vest and child-size plastic dishes for your use while at our home so you don't have to haul it on the plane. (see photos)

The location is great. Our home is located in Palm Desert immediately on the border with La Quinta and Indian Wells. You'll be just a few minutes walk to the Indian Wells Tennis Center and just a couple minutes drive to El Paseo, College of the Desert, Westfield Shopping Center and Old Town La Quinta. There's shopping close by with 4 grocery stores (Albertson's, Ralph's, Stater Bros. and Von's) and a Walmart Supercenter and Costco. All just 5 minutes away.

If you want PRIVACY and PEACE and QUIET - and a beautiful pool all to yourself, our home is absolutely the place for you.

* We also have a 2 bedroom condo for rent in the Monterey Country Club. See VRBO #331636.

About Gorde Edlund

My wife and I fell in love with the desert on our first trip in 2003. We dreamed that one day we would have our own desert paradise. That dream was fulfilled early in 2010 when we found this little gem in the Palm Desert Country Club. We both love to golf, hike and picnic in the desert and Joshua Tree National Park.

Gorde Edlund purchased this house in 2010

Why Gorde Edlund chose Palm Desert

We chose Palm Desert because of it's central location - you're never more than 15 to 20 minutes away from anywhere. We're close to our favorite golf course of Firecliff at Desert Willow; just minutes from our favorite spots to hangout like College of the Desert, El Paseo and the Living Desert. And it's just a short drive to some of the best restaurants around (try Okura Sushi, the Yardhouse at the River, P.F. Chang's at the River and of course, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion.)

What makes this house unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy. The backyard kicks butt.

Palm Desert Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This rental property was awesome. It felt so comfortable! We loved the kitchen and dining area as we rarely ate out. The privacy of the pool area was so good! Temperature inside and out of pool was so enjoyable. We had a fresh grapefruit every morning! Gorde was so great at looking after our few minor concerns. You can tell that they take pride in their home. I would too if it were mine! Loved every single minute! Back to reality and a bitter winter in Northern Alberta! Cannot wait for the next time!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This house has it all for our family (we've 3 young kids 5, 7 & 10). We spent hours in the pool and the kids never wanted to leave! A very clean house. Everything we needed was there. This was a great week. As others, we received an e-mail on the day we arrived to confirm we had everything we needed. I'd recommend this to all. We'd love to go back. After a few more weeks of the Canadian winter we will need a trip South. Thanks very much for letting us into your lovely home!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host your family for a fun and relaxing vacation. We take a lot of pride in our home and how it is equipped for guests, so it is always nice to hear positive comments. And I will be sure to pass along your comments to our maids for their continued 'job well done' in keeping our home spotless for guests.

Great Desert Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The family had a great time in this home. It was clean and well taken care of. The kitchen had all the necessary gadgets and then some. The pool was sparkling clean and they had all kinds of pool toys for old and young to enjoy. The beds were comfy and all linens were provided. Close to markets, shopping and great eating. Owner followed up on arrival to make sure all was good and once again at the end of the vacation. We definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the Palm Springs area.

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
We found the house to be extremely clean, well stocked with basics and the information on how to access the house was clear and concise. We had a wonderful time enjoying the backyard and swimming pool! Everything was very well maintained and there were no surprises. The area where the house is located is very clean and quiet. Access to stores, theaters, shopping and dining was close and easy to get to! The beds were extremely comfortable!! Directions on how to take care of the house were very helpful. We had a wonderfully, calm, relaxing vacation! We would absolutely recommend this house to our friends and family members! The owners were great to work with and for the money, this one is really a steal!!! We would definitely choose this place again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time at our home for your vacation. Yes indeed, the beds are very comfy and we just purchased new linens for the beds. Our next project is to install a variable speed pool pump which will ensure the pool remains pristine and is ultra quiet while running. We hope we can be your hosts again.

Comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This private home is very comfortable in a very quiet neighbourhood. The backyard is totally private as per the listing and we spent a lot of time there. Pool is a very good size and deep. Gorde was very responsive to questions that we had. This house has lots of kitchen supplies, good quality dishware and cleaning supplies. I was quite impressed by the number of bath towels that were available. King bed very comfy as well. The location is nice and central to all the areas that we like to frequent. It simply feels like your home. We have booked again for next year and are looking forward to being there again. Thanks Gorde.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you have booked again for next year. It is always nice when we have repeat guests. It's nice to hear comments from them when they see changes that we have done during off season. Your suggestion to us of stocking a coffee grinder is a great idea and we'll be taking care of that.

Thank you for the kind words.
