Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

Gorgeous 'resort' style house on a half acre of manicured grounds and pool that will keep you entertained day or night. Located in an almost secret canyon high above the valley floor in a very desirable neighborhood.

There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The rooms are all average to large in size and are well appointed with quality bedding. The master bedroom has a King size bed, 3 rooms have queen size beds, one room has two twin size. There is also a 'trundle' bed (two twins) in one of the bedrooms.

The kitchen is light and bright looks out at the pool, and is big enough to have people hanging around while you cook. The kitchen has gas cooking, dishwasher , refrigerator/freezer , ice maker, microwave, toaster, blender, 2 coffee makers and a host of gadgets and cookware .

Two eating areas, one inside seats 8 , the other on the patio that seats 12.

There are two barbeques. One charcoal and one gas.

A comfortable living room, with soft leather furniture and a 50 inch

flat screen TV along with BlueRay and many choices including Netflix,Pandora,Utube

etc. There are tv's in each bedroom as well.

The custom swimming pool has a 45 foot lap lane, a beach entry and is surrounded by natural granite boulders. A raised spa with a waterfall spillway.

There is also a 7' waterfall fountain feature adjacent to the pool.

We are close enough to make it easy to go to either Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert for meals, entertainment and activities. Central Cathedral City is just a few minutes away and offers an IMAX Theater, a multi-screen theater,

miniature golf, shopping (Target, Trader Joe's etc.) and some really great dinning...try ' La Tablita' for a great Mexican meal and margarita! Also a great Sushi place 'Dragon Sushi' and a new treasure 'Bonta'. A great menu, full bar in a beautiful space and the food is delicious !

If you like to hike and explore natural trails, you can literally walk out the front door and hit the trails that access the beautiful 'Santa Rosa Mountains National Monument'. There are miles and miles of trails and canyons to explore.

The Monument is home to an endangered species of Bighorn Sheep, and if you are lucky, you may spot one or more of these magnificent creatures.

Easy to get to town, yes..but many of our guests just want to stay at the house and 'hang out' ! It is so quiet , tucked away above the valley floor, you don't hear the incoming airplane or highway traffic.

A perfect 'HIDEAWAY' , for those that don't want to be disturbed.

The landscape and property walls assure a secure and PRIVATE stay.

There are no tour buses through the area.

About Dean Porter

I moved to the desert in 1985 and fell in love with the mountains and the wide-open spaces here, not to mention the unbeatable sunshine! This is the place I call home.

I have spent many years creating this place and am

delighted to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Dean Porter purchased this house in 1990

Why Dean Porter chose Palm Springs

The location is unbeatable for quiet and a sense of security without having to go through gates. The extra large lot affords the space for an extensive garden to

relax in and wander through.

What makes this house unique

I have been in the area for over 25 yrs and

I can honestly say there is no neighborhood

that compares when it comes to seclusion,privacy and serenity! It is so quiet here I can listen to the birds sing every morning. Airplanes and highways are out of ears reach! The mountains are literally right out the door making hiking and exploring a real treat. Nothing like a soak in the spa/jacuzzi after a nice climb in the mountains.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything I was looking for.. It had a beautiful backyard with a big pool and attached jacuzzi! The heat control for the pool and jacuzzi was very handy because it warmed up the water and swimming in late February became possible! The view from the garden was very nice and relaxing! The size of the house was exceptionally perfect! Everything was clean and ready by the time we got there for the weekend! We had a great time and would definitely go back. We would totally recommend it to others!

Serene Oasis was great

  • 5 of 5

We and our two young kids stayed with two other families with young kids. The place was terrific. Quiet, private, well-appointed. The pool and hot tub were perfect, and the gardens with the hammock are beautiful (we ended up hanging out there a lot - the pictures don't do it justice). Dean and Todd were very nice and responsive. We would definitely come back!

Exceptional property in Cathedral City

  • 5 of 5

Me, my partner and some close friends stayed at Serene Oasis in January for a long weekend getaway. We were all blown away at how true to its name Serene Oasis is. This 5 BR/4 bath home is indeed like having your own private resort with the incredibly designed heated swimming pool and attached hot tub with waterfalls. The surrounding grounds afforded us the luxury of complete privacy. The garden path throughout the grounds is beautiful and maintained impeccably, with a wide assortment of decorative and fruit-bearing trees along the path. The well-equipped kitchen made cooking for our group a breeze and the covered outdoor patio was a stunning setting for our evening cocktails and dinner/game time. We also really enjoyed having the upright piano in the main living room; we played it well and sang our hearts out! Each room of Serene Oasis is exquisitely and tastefully decorated with fine art throughout, and the beds were more comfortable than mine at home! We would recommend this home for any group or family that seeks privacy, serenity and luxury. Now I can't wait to visit again!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 2 grandparents, 4 parents and 6 kids aged 12-5. We all had a wonderful time. The house is layed out very nicely for a large group and there was more than enough space for everyone. The yard is so private and beautiful we never felt like we had to leave! The location is very central to everything in and around Palm Springs. The pool area is superb and the kids spent most of their time swimming and playing. There is also a wonderful garden area above the pool for quieter relaxation. We had a fabulous time and would not hesitate to stay again at this property.

Best Christmas Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for Christmas week and it was the perfect spot for our kids to join us.We had 10 people staying in the home with my parents at the Welk Resort nearby. The house was clean & well stocked kitchen made cooking nightly dinners fun &easy.Great bbq & seating outside or inside for meals.We all enjoyed the gorgeous pool & spa, which was easy to use.The backyard has amazing landscaping, & the pool & spa are lighted & just as fun at night.We played games at the square pub style table inside & sang carols around the piano, which was a treat as we had several pianists there.Todd & Dean were so great to deal with & were there to greet us & show us around & tore up our deposit check right away. Their home is lovely & feels like home away from home! My only regret was not staying longer...we definitely will be back!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Dean and Todd's place was great! We are a family of 10, with an age range of 1 to 70, and everyone was satisfied. You can play in the salt water pool (heated) and hot tub, relax in the hammock, enjoy wine in the living room, and even singalong to the piano with all the sheet music they provided, and even hike around the canyon (the trailhead is a block away from the house). The bedrooms inside the main house are large and have enough space for a family, while the bedrooms around the courtyard offer privacy to couples.

Everything in the house was clean and well taken care of. We'd strongly recommend staying here!
