I'm a concrete cutting, coring and demolition contractor in San Diego.

I've been coming out to the desert for over 35 years and hope to soon be able to

live here full time. I can't think of a better place to relax and enjoy all that

the desert has to offer.

Mary Baker purchased this house in 2006

The minute my husband and I entered Versailles, we knew this was where we wanted to retire. A beautiful and quiet upscale gated community with shopping, theaters and Casino around the corner. Large single story homes on 1/3 + acre lots and a tennis court across the street. We were in heaven

WONDERFUL VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
This property totally lives up to the reviews and the pictures. It is beutifully decorated and very well appointed. It has a luxurious but at the same time comfortable feel to it. The well-equipped kitchen was a delight to cook in and we also made extensive use of the outdoor grill. Where other rentals have come up short with bed comfort, linens etc this property was outstanding. Mary provides a great overview prior to arrival and ensured a comfortable, worry-free stay. Best of all it very quickly feels like "home". This property and the owners definitely deserve the 5 star rating.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at this property at the end of July and the beginning of August. We are from England and so one of the big attractions for us is the guaranteed good weather. We have holidayed in Rancho Mirage before but this property was really lovely. It is to a very high standard and everything you need was included from the lovely salt water pool to the lovely outdoor grill to the fully equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms. We even had access to the nearby tennis courts and use of four bicycles.
As a family we tend to suffer from ear infections on our summer holidays due to using the pool constantly for two weeks but we didn't have any of that with this house. Whether that was due to the Salt water pool or because the pool was maintained properly, we don`t know.
When we stayed in Rancho Mirage previously we did the Grand Canyon trip so this time we tried the Aerial Tramway in Palm Springs which was spectacular. We also went to San Diego to watch the Padres play the Rockies at baseball which was very entertaining. We treated the kids to a day out at Six Flags which is always worth a visit(Flashpass recommended) and in between there were many visits to the factory outlet shops for the girls.
The owner was very helpful and interested to know that everything was running smoothly which was reassuring.
We found the listing to be accurate, the photographs to be a fair reflection of the property and we would highly recommend this property.
Our only disappointment was that two weeks was far too short and we were extremely sad to have to leave and come back. Definitely on our list to visit again.
Thanks Mary for a brilliant holiday.

OMG FIRST VACATION NONE OF US WANTED TO GO HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is 5 stars all the way! The home, the property, and the owner. What a treat to stay here and if you are trying to decide where to stay the pictures truly don't do this home justice. There for a week in May it was fabulous and want to return soon. It was so relaxing and could not want for a better experience.

OASIS IN THE DESERT!

  • 5 of 5
This is truly your own private resort. The house and pool area are absolutely gorgeous. We had 4 couples and you never once felt like you were on top of each other. The kitchen has everything you could need. We would go back in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate to stay here - and Mary is a gem to work with.

FABULOUS DESERT STAY

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely beautiful! The owner has thought of everything to provide a wonderful home away from home for our family Holiday vacation. Seven of us were very comfortable in the spacious rooms. The decor is fantastic causing my sister-in -law to remark she was in a desert "castle"! The kitchen is to die for with everything we needed for my gourmet brother to cook to his heart's content.
Large TV's provide for all viewing tastes and there is plenty of room to play board games on two of the large tables. There were even tasteful holiday decorations making it very festive!

The house is wonderfully located with shopping and dining close by. It is an easy drive to Palm Springs for the Follies which is a must if visiting or Christmas dinner at Melvyn's--old Palm Springs) Tons of golf courses in the vicinity so easy to pick from.

We had terrific weather ( of course, Mary the owner, made sure of that!) so the pool and spa were a delight. Warm days--cool nights--The pool area is the highlight of the house with beautiful landscaping and lighting.

Mary is easy to work with and the details were oh so easy. For a large group this place can't be beat! Not too bad for two of us either! The only negative--we had to leave-- I could spend lots of time here!
