This home is located in the secluded Rancho Mirage community of Magnesia Falls Cove which provides both privacy and tranquility. The home’s exterior reflects the colors of the nearby mountains and provides a stunning backdrop for the beautiful xeriscape. This remarkable vacation home was custom built in 2006 with indoor / outdoor living in mind. This home's design and orientation highlight the sunshine and gorgeous mountain views. High ceilings, open floor plan and large windows give this home a light and open feel and bring the outdoors in.

Many upscale appointments make this home perfect for your quiet enjoyment or sharing with friends and family. The living area opens to the pool area and covered patio and includes a gas fireplace and terrific built in sound system. The kitchen features granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances including double ovens for those special events and dinner parties. You'll find all the utensils, service ware, and small appliances you need to prepare delicious meals for friends and family. The butler’s pantry contains ample storage and a bar with wine cooler. Two sets of French doors in the Dining Room opens to the front courtyard to the north and western mountain views. The media room also opens to the front courtyard and includes a large HD TV as well as an Xbox 360 with an assortment of games and movies for your entertainment.

The master bedroom is spacious with high ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and a large en suite with jetted tub overlooking a private garden. The guest house has large sliders opening to the front courtyard and the south facing backyard. Each of the two other guest bedrooms have their own spacious private patios.

The outside oasis of this home invites you to enjoy the brilliant year round sunshine and breathtaking mountain views while you relax on a lounge chair, outdoor sectional or pool float. A comfortable modular sectional provides for comfortable longing or entertaining under the south facing covered patio with lounge chairs on the poolside patio. The sparkling pool is great for play or lounging and includes remotely operated fountains. The large spa heats quickly and is perfectly situated to enjoy the breathtaking mountain views and sunsets. Stunning pool and landscape lighting, as well as a gas firepit, allow you to enjoy, or entertain in, the outdoors throughout the evening.

Poor Communication and Broken Promises

  • 1 of 5
It took Michael five days to return my call to confirm our reservation and send the
contract. Not a problem as I later found out he was spending time with his kids. I mention this because after receiving the reservation confirmation, I was expecting Michael to email the access instructions prior to arrival as our confirmation email explains. Fast forward to the night before check in - There was no communication from Michael, so I called him, only to find out that he wasn't expecting us. He stated that our reservation had been cancelled - yet looking at VRBO, our dates were still blocked out, I paid for the first half of the deposit and received confirmation of our reservation. Ok…. I'm in a little bit of a panic now. The 2nd payment should have automatically be paid on the due date as there are no instructions stating otherwise. Michael handled it well and said the house is available. I asked when check in time was and Michael said anytime would be fine. We agreed on a time and he replied that he would have the property looked at and guaranteed that the property would be ready prior to arrival.
We arrived at our designated time and the property was not rental ready. We couldn't use the pool for the first two days as the pool was (very) dirty due to the filter needing to be replaced. The A/C filter also needed to be replaced and wasn't working until late the first evening - keep in mind it was 107 that day. There were nasty stains on the comforter in the guest house and there was a large amount of dust balls draping over the head board in the guest house that had to be accumulating for quite some time. We were looking forward sitting by the outdoor fire pit in the evening, which turned out broken. Oh and don't let me forget about the large amount of bird excrement all over the back patio and lounge cushions that needed to be disinfected and cleaned. We spent the day coordinating with the property manager and overseeing that the various challenges get addressed. It wasn't until 7 hours later that most of the issues had been resolved. This is NOT the way we should have spent our first day. It was very disappointing. Regardless of what the rental fee is, the property should be clean and in working order. Michael agreed to refund the first nights rental fee Sep. 30 - it is now Oct. 9 and I have not received the credit. I sent a follow up email the morning of the 7th and there has been (no) response. *Update: received a refund on the 9th

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing time at Michael's house and would return in a heartbeat. The amenities were perfect and everything was spotless (important for my high-maintenance crowd). Great cooks kitchen, plenty of towels, quality flatware and plenty of room to spend quiet time away from the group if needed. A perfect 10!

Stunning home, comfortable & excellent for entertaining

Our stay in Michael's gorgeous home couldn't have been better. The property is so spacious; it VERY comfortably held six adults. In fact, sometimes it felt like no one was home, despite having a relatively full house.

The photos posted are very accurate for the home. However, the property is even more stunning in person. There's been great attention to detail paid throughout the house. From yoga mats to beach towels to Pottery Barn cookware, everything in the home is top notch. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the surround sound system that's wired throughout the main house and the outdoor patio, overlooking the pool (which has beautiful fountains and blue lights).

Not only was this property perfect for my group (a high maintenance bunch who is used to five star-level accommodations), my experience with the home owner Michael was excellent. He was prompt at returning my many emails (in the dozens), available to chat over the phone whenever necessary and handled my requests during our trip immediately.

If this home is available when you're going to be visiting the desert, reserve it immediately! You won't be disappointed. In fact, I'm already to put money down for next year's visit...if Michael will have us. :)

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with vrbo and we are hooked. This home was lovely,convenient and very well maintained. The owner was a pleasure to work with,easily reachable and eager to please. The location is quiet and relaxing but close enough to all of the night life that Rancho Mirage has to offer..I will definitely recommend this property and hopefully will be renting it again soon. In a few words everything needed for a great family vacation was right here....Thank you Mike for letting us share your lovely space.
