Palm Springs Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Luxury Home For 6 People Perched High Above Palm Springs

Desert Knoll is the perfect name for this beautiful luxury home on 1/3 of an acre.perched on the hills above Palm Springs. Desert Knoll isolates its 6 guests from neighbours and street with privacy hedges and trees on three sides yet it provides sweeping vistas of the desert, mountains and great southern exposure. From the moment you enter the front gate you'll enjoy the impressive desert modern architecture, high end finishes, stylish modern furnishings, and gorgeous artwork in this steel, glass and concrete masterpiece.

Desert Knoll is conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, on a quiet street overlooking the Coachella Valley with the San Jacinto Mountains right behind it. Its also close to Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert.

Desert Knoll is designed with an eye to the classic contemporary architecture that defines the Palm Springs lifestyle; open & exciting. The flat roof, clean lines and wide expanses of glass provide panoramic views, abundant natural light, and erase the line between indoors & out for seamless living & entertaining. At first look, the house blends in perfectly with the desert terrain; huge boulders accented with natural landscaping indigenous to the area. As you approach the tall glass entry, you'll immediately understand the scale & volume of the house. The oversized entry hall with towering ceilings is formal, yet inviting. Desert Knoll was built for entertaining in style. The giant sliding walls of glass in the living room disappear into the wall to make a large open-air pavilion facing the pool and view, providing plenty of lounge seating for everyone, either in front of the indoor living room wood fireplace or around the outdoor fire pit.

The large modern chef's kitchen features high end appliances from A to Z and has a convenient pass-through breakfast bar to the living/dining room. It also provides added privacy for dinner party preparations with a butler's pantry directly behind the kitchen, where you'll find an extra ice machine, wine refrigerator and laundry facilities. For extra flexibility, there are additional large-capacity laundry facilities in the garage. In addition to the generously sized dining table for eight in the main living area, there is an additional outdoor dining table for eight and a gas barbecue grill just outside the kitchen.

Once inside, the walls and gates that secure the property and protect its privacy, the setting is a verdant green tropical landscape dotted with gorgeous outdoor furniture that has a luxurious cooling effect to the eye & the senses.

The Master suite offers a King size bed, walk-in closet and generous private bathroom with jetted soaking tub and walk-in rain shower, as well as a private sitting patio outside the bathroom and second patio facing the pool. The second Master bedroom features a King size bed that can be separated into Twin beds when needed, a private bathroom with walk-in shower, and a private patio off the bathroom. The third bedroom has a King size bed, a built-in desk space and direct access to the pool. In the hallway just outside this bedroom is a full guest bathroom with walk-in shower. All three bedrooms feature brand new comfortable beds and quality linens, so everyone gets a 'good bedroom' in this luxury home.

One of the best features of Desert Knoll is the private pool deck out back. The sparkling blue swimming pool, bubbling spa and shaded lounge area with water misters and a gas fire pit are great places to hang out with a cocktail and enjoy the view to such well-known neighborhoods as Little Tuscany, Chino Canyon, Old Las Palmas and Vista Las Palmas in the foreground, all the way to South Palm Springs in the distance.

The house is protected by a 24 hour alarm system and it has high capacity WiFi for the house and grounds. Each room is equipped with a large flat screen HDTV, DVD players and Bluetooth docking radio clocks. There is a 2 zone Bluetooth high end stereo system that covers the whole house, plus a Bluetooth sound bar in the living room next to the 55' HDTV with DVD. There is also a printer, scanner, fax for your basic office needs.

The house has a large book selection of diverse topics, various water toys and floats, multiple toys for 1 year olds to 5 or so, a golf rack for your clubs and shoes,

Desert Knoll strives to be as green as possible. It has a 60 panel solar system, LED lighting, desert landscaping were possible, smart appliances and smart home features. It also boasts a large back up gas powered generator for the more than occasional PS power outage.

Please contact us for last minute, midweek and two night specials.

My wife and I rented this property for the week after Christmas. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The home is beautiful and conveniently located. The kitchen is fully equipped. The pool and hot tub were very relaxing. This home has it all! The owner was very thoughtful, and he checked with us during our stay to make sure that we were enjoying our stay and that we did not have any issues. We have been fortunate to stay in some very nice VRBO properties, but this was absolutely the best.

Beautifully Furnished & Amazing Fire Feature

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 nights in this house. The home was incredibly tasteful with an enormous amount of attention to detail in the fit-out. The outdoor furniture and fire feature was wonderful and made the experience so much more exciting and conducive to evening socialising. The only thing that would of made it even more amazing would have been better views of the surrounding mountain and desert but these can easily be enjoyed when strolling around the neighbourhood. I appreciated the smaller size pool as it made keeping an eye on my children more manageable. The general layout was great for kids and I always felt as though I knew where they were. The pool is heavily chlorinated so I would suggest stocking up on Malibu Swim Shampoo for young children to avoid skin irritation which mine suffered from quite badly. The owner Robert was lovely. We had a very special & memorable time staying at Desert Knoll.

The house was even more beautiful than the pictures! We were 3 couples and the bedrooms were nicely spread out for privacy. Loved the beds/sheets and really loved that all beds were king!

The house was even more beautiful that the pictures. It was very well sited for views and privacy, and the pool and spa were lovely. There is a very well equipped kitchen and barbecue, the linens and towels were very good quality, and the decor of the house was very tasteful and comfortable. We loved having the door to the pool area wide open, and bringing the outside in. The setting is perfect, and area restaurants and hiking facilities are very nearby.
