PRIVATE AND LUXURIOUS. A ZEN-LIKE EXPERIENCE

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Architectural 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Designer's Home With Swimming Pool.

CLOUD 9

Private pool with Luxury accommodation in secluded house.

Upon entering this home you are going to want to stay and stay and stay.

With a touch of class and an elegance to the design coupled with an indoor/outdoor flow from every room, you will be showered with a heavenly lull, almost like taking a trip to Bali.

This lovely home reflects my life in design and architecture, passion for plants and landscaping and time spent traveling around the world.

This two bedroom, each with its attached bathroom, has its own mid-sized pool nestled under an oasis of 12 palm trees, just a small part of the 21 palms on the property.

The home is very private, quiet and surrounded by well cultivated lush, tropical landscape.

Wisteria covers the veranda in March and April.

Grapefruit and Orange blossom perfume the air in February and March and a sizable grapevine yields and endless supply of the sweetest seedless champagne grapes from the end of April through June.

The neighbors on each side are wonderful and respectful.

Freshly painted and refurbished, this home boasts sophistication with original artwork on all the walls and oriental rugs on top of the Mexican tiled floors. A spacious outdoor shower leads off the master bedroom and to the pool. The intimate, covered outdoor patio, which leads off one side of the living room and kitchen, has two fans and is surrounded with misters.

The living room, together with gas burning fireplace, looks on to the pool and numerous palm trees as well as the cozy, covered patio. A great surround sound system is yours for the choosing. There is a beautiful dining room leading off the living room. An over-sized original canvas painting on the wall gives the space an intimacy, coziness and sense of style.

The kitchen has excellent connection and separation from the living room and dining room in a functional way providing easy access to all spaces, including the outside dining. The kitchen itself has a chopping block island and is fully equipped with a double oven and a Wolf gas range. All counters and back splashes are granite. Ice maker in the ice box and a double sink. An array of interesting teas and a bottle of wine will be there to greet you.

Each bedroom has a Queen sized bed. These bedrooms have there own bathrooms, with granite counter tops, shower/bathtubs and toilet in each room. T.V.’s are in both bedrooms.

Of course, the house has WiFi, cable and internet.

A hammock is strategically placed at the edge of the pool. Feel free to drop your foot into the pool, while nestling with a book or sipping a glass of wine. An over-sized Buddha under the palms looks on to add the peace and tranquility of the space.

The house is very quiet and private. It is located close to the 10 Freeway and is in close proximity to supermarkets and other general amenities.

The Property Manager will greet you upon your arrival, give you keys and show you the workings of the home, including lighting, t.v. internet connection etc.

The Property Manager lives on the site, but has his own separate entrance and completely private quarters which is not part of the house, pool or garden.

As an added bonus, if required, the Property Manager, Ben, offers his services as a concierge. These services are separate and can include the following,

Running general errands, shopping, laundry, dry-cleaning drop-off and pick-up, grocery shopping, car washing, baby-sitting. No job too small or too big. He can organize events and outings with services 'high-end', Local favorites, or on a budget. There are visits to the Tram, tours to Joshua Tree, or trips to shopping malls. If you are busy and coming in late, Ben, the concierge can organize dinner waiting for you.

All of the Concierge services are extra and should you want to use any of these services you would be negotiating payment directly with Ben.

Unless you request the services of the Concierge, Ben, apart from greeting you on arrival you will not have further contact with him.

This home, Cloud 9, is gem.

If you want a quite, tranquil and zen like experience, this is the home for you.

We warmly welcome you.

I am an architect and Interior Designer. Graduated at Cape Town University in South Africa. I have been in the USA since 1979 and have traveled to many countries around the world.

Lucien Wolff purchased this house in 2004

This property has an excellent floor plan, with a terrific indoor/outdoor feel . The master bedroom has an outdoor shower which leads onto the pool. The kitchen and it's relationship to the living room and the outdoor dining and sitting space under a covered porch, make it excellent for comfort and entertaining. All of the rooms look toward a mature, colorful tropical garden. The home itself is generally exceptionally quiet and introverted from the street. The home is also very easy to maintain, with numerous seating and enjoyment options. There are 21 mature Washingtonia Palm on the property, giving the feel of being at an oasis.

Just six miles from downtown Palm Springs and less than a mile from the I-10 Freeway access.

There are two bicycles in the garage.

The house is completely private with a two car garage.

Beautiful, peaceful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We found this home a perfect place to have our souls brought back to life after the bitter winter we've had. The landscaping is beautiful and the yard private. We were able to eat EVERY meal outdoors on the patio. Plenty of comfortable seating throughout the home and patios. The home is conveniently located close to hiking, dining and shopping. The owner was gracious enough to have fresh fruit, bagels and other breakfast foods waiting for us so we didn't have to make a late night run to the grocery store on arrival. He was very interested in doing everything he could to make our time there enjoyable. Easy to communicate with and attentive to our wants and needs. Nice place to spend time in the winter.

Living Large at the Zen House

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at this property and it is as beautiful as the pictures depict it, the layout is great both inside and out. We found it to be well equipped in all aspects. Most of the week was spent golfing and it is fabulously located for some great courses, ask Lucien if you would like some information on the courses we went to. Lucien took extra care to make sure we were comfortable on arrival and had everything we needed throughout our stay. We would definitely rent here again.

Owner's Response: Gail,
It was more than a pleasure to have you. What kind and thoughtful people you were. I was astonished as to how clean and tidy you left the house. Sure made my life so much easier, especially as I had someone coming in shortly after you left. Whew! What energy you all had. Amazed me how you took in all that the valley has to offer.
Best wishes to all four of you,
Lucien

A home with maximum relaxation and luxury

  • 5 of 5
Our preferred type of vaca is to have the comforts (such as a kitchen) of home and yet the luxury of being well cared for and pampered. Lucien has achieved the epitome of this experience in his lovely bungalow in Cathedral City. It is decorated with care and feels both perfectly relaxing and luxurious. We stayed for a week and the weather was perfect-75-85 during the day and 55-65 at night, although we could tell that the house would stay cool even when the weather was hotter. In between our excursions to Palm Springs tramway and Joshua Tree, we made full use of the house and garden. Our kids enjoyed the pool, although it was a bit cold for us adults. There is ample outdoor space to enjoy, including a covered patio right off the kitchen to dine al fresco.We were able to sleep with the doors and windows open in the peaceful surroundings of a residential area, so much better for us then a busy resort or streetside hotel with hundreds of rooms (and other guests!) There is a sense of peace that is truly unique at Cloud 9 and a week here will set right anything that is wrong in your life.

Owner's Response: Wow, that was a lovely, erudite comment. I greatly appreciate it. By the way, you will be pleased to know I got the fountain properly connected electrically and onto a timer, something I was wanting to do for a long time, but didn't get round to doing it. Thanks for the nudge in that regard. You are all a delightful family and I hope you will make this a restful vacation again in the near future.

Amazing Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5
Had an incredible weekend at the home. It was lovely. Very peaceful, comfortable, and about a 10 minute drive from downtown Palm Springs - so convenient without all the hustle and bustle.
It was easy to find and parking was simple.
The owner did a really amazing job with the landscaping and general feel of the place. Inside you feel like you're in an art museum, while outside, a lush desert oasis.
I would highly recommend it, and will definitely look it up again on our next visit.
Oh yeah, and I loved loved loved the outdoor shower!
