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.

Family all together

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for two weeks during the miserable weather in the Midwest during February 2015. It is a great layout for a family or group with several youngsters. The home is well equipped with supplies for eating at home and using the pool in a beautiful backyard. As others have noted the home is well located so that everything is only a few minutes away.

We had two small incidents which required the owner's attention and these were completely resolved immediately. The home is well maintained and fully stocked with the things you'll want to have a great time.

Owner's Response: Yes your timing to escape to the desert was outstanding! Thank you for the kind words about our home. And we really appreciate that you brought up the two minor problems (main shower/tub diverter valve and toilet slow filling bowl) and that we took care of it immediately. It's inevitable that things will breakdown in anybody's home and that's why we have a 'handyman' on call who strives for 'same day', or at the longest, 'next day' service. We are fortunate to have him. We're glad you enjoyed your vacation and hope to be your hosts again.

Wonderful family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting this home for a week and throughly enjoyed everything about it. The backyard really is a dream and where we spent most of our time. I enjoyed watching the many hummingbirds inthe area. The pool was wonderful and it was great to have use of the pool floats etc. The location is very convenient to everywhere and anywhere you want to go.

The home itself is very well stocked and cared for. We all had wonderful beds and mattresses. My husband fell in love with the feather pillow he used there so I've already had to find and order him one online.

The owners are wonderful to deal with. A quick response to any questions we may have had. We are hoping for a return trip to this home soon and have already recommended it to friends.

Perfect holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting this beautiful home over the Christmas/New Year holiday. Every review that you read here is 100% true. The place is very comfortable, very clean, well stocked with new pots, pans, dishes, knives and supplies. The pool and Jacuzzi were a delight. Close to all golf courses. The owners are very attentive to every need and a complete pleasure to deal with. I'd recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Palm Desert. I will be back myself.

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.

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and it is a wonderful place to stay.

The pool in the private backyard is amazing. Our kids and grandson had a great time.

The house was in great shape very clean . The owner sent an email when we arrived to make sure everything was ok.

I would recommend this property to everyone looking for a wonderful relaxing time.
