Mission Hills Country Club requires that all rentals be for at least one month.
Mission Hills is a world class Golf Club (Dinah Shore LPGA Tournament held annually), Tennis Club (The Davis Cup was held here twice because of the fine grass courts.) There are 28 tennis courts. There are 10 croquet fields with world class croquet. (The number one croquet player in the U.S.A. resides here).
The unit has twin master bedrooms. If you have guests they do not have to fit in a small kids room. Each master bedroom has its own patio and walk in closet and full bathroom. There is a 1/2 bath guest powder room.
The two bedrooms have no connecting wall and are sound private. There is no need to lower your voices.
There are two TV sets. One is a 55 inch screen with a dvd player. And the other is a wall mounted bedroom 32 inch flat screen. Both have cable.
The two upstairs decks have new Alumawood brand slated deck covers. A palm tree has been custom cut to fit through this double deck cover between decks.
There is a lemon tree and a tangarine tree on the property.
A large salt water pool is a short walk across the grass from both master suites.
There are great walks in the area. One favorite walk is walking to the main club house or the tennis clubhouse in Mission Hills Country Club. Bicycles have space if you prefer.
We also like to walk in 'The Living Desert.' There are long walks through the botanical gardens and another walk through a themed African area to Watusi Village. You will see many desert animals and birds in an open zoo setting. We particularly like the rare local 'Thick Beak Parrots.' These parrots are size of an Amazon Parrot and look similar. They live in our local Palm Spring mountain hills on pine nuts.
The carrosel at the living desert is a tourist site. Whether you ride it or not ... check it out. It features the many desert animals you have been seing in the living desert zoo walk. Feeding the giraffes is a major event in the mornings. Watch out for their long gentle tongues.
Walking El Paseo is a more refined walk than walking Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. Similar shops, antique stores and art galleries are on both sides of the street at a more leisurely pace. Try Beau Arts Restaurant for lunch or dinner. .
Walking downtown Palm Springs is unique. See the old architecture from early times in the desert and the Follies Revue Theater (Jack Benny used to broadcast his radio show here). Try Lulu's Restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Walking the huge park in Palm Desert surrounding city hall is pleasant with all the lakes. There is an endless supply of sunning turtles. How high can they stack themselves?
Walking Mortons Cactus Garden is another fun desert experience. The owners have a love affair with the cactus. They have a huge variety. This is an old tourist stop in Palm Springs.
Walking through Annenberg Estate is a popular free Rancho Mirage park walk. The desert botanic gardens are regal and extensive. There is a tour of the mansion. Be sure to schedule it on line. It is popular as one of America's great mansions. It has been a presidential retreat since Ike. .
Walking in Joshua Tree National Park is about an hour drive away. Hikes and trails are throughout the park.
Walking the tram trail at the top of Mount San Jacinto at 8,000 feet.is an exciting walk. You take the tram out of Palm Springs to get there and back. The Swiss tram is a tourist site in itself. It ls It is cooler up there. Consider a coat. The restaurant at the top of the tram is reccommended.
Take a tour of the 'Movie Colony.' When stars were on contract they were required to reside within 100 miles of L.A. Palm Springs fit that bill. There second homes are a popular tour. Drive by the homes of Elizebeh Taylor, Madonna, Bob Hope etc.
The Rancho Mirage location in the State is desiresble.. Mid-valley it is easy to get to Palm Springs, La Quinta or the airport.
It is about a 4 hour drive to Las Vegas or Phoenix. Los Angles is a 1 3/4 hour drive. The Temecula Wine region is a 1 1/2 hour drive. Wineries are extensive. The Solvang (Sideways movie) is a 4 hour drive.
World Class tennis is played in the Tennis Garden in Indian Wells. This is a first class tennis stadium with many outside courts.
