The Guest Lodge contains 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, to include a full kitchen, living room, professional ping pong table, and a Brunswick Poker table.

MORE THAN WE EXPECTED!!!

  • 5 of 5
I stay with my whole tennis team. We were 14 adults in total and the property was perfect. Great kitchen, spacious rooms and living room. Perfect for families reunions and/or groups that want to stay together and do not mind not going out, since this property makes you want to stay inside. Great patio and pools. Lynne, the owner, very sweet lady. I recommend it to every tennis team playing for National Championship. Definitely staying again when I get back to the area.

INCREDIBLE WEDDING VENUE!

  • 5 of 5
Everyone should get married here! Our pictures are beautiful, our guests marveled at the property, it felt so intimate and luxurious and exceeded every one of my expectations.

Lynne & Rob, the owners, are 2 of the loveliest people I've ever met. They were such a help to us, and were truly committed to making sure we had everything we needed. They have thought of everything here!

We had a small wedding (60 guests), but easily could've had 200. The entire bridal party stayed with us for the wedding, and the day after we relaxed with the family. Our rehearsal dinner was followed by game night in the Great Room, our ceremony was held under 3 big beautiful trees in the sprawling yard/garden with a majestic mountain behind us, and our reception area was set up around 4 date palm trees that form a perfect square (ideal location for the dance floor).

My parents, our siblings, and all our friends could not believe how wonderful this property was! We will absolutely return (hopefully at least once/year) for future family gatherings, and weekend getaways with friends.

The chef Lynne recommended to us was perfection! His food, the presentation, the staff, just everything - flawless and impressive. I've never had better food at a wedding, and he was a joy to work with.

The master suite and bathroom is better than a suite at the Four Seasons. The view from the large, all-glass, shower is breathtaking in the morning - and the private patio with hot-tub off the master is soooo romantic.

The photos give you a really good sense of the property, but the videos are even better. Still, no photo can convey how beautiful and serene and elegant it is in person. Stop reading this review and book it :)

Our wedding was happiest weekend of my life, and being able to have it here was a large part of how special it was. I was the last of my bridesmaids to marry, and had the benefit of their knowledge/experience - we all agree that this venue and everything it allows for was by far the best.

Thank you Lynne & Rob, I'm so grateful to you!

GREAT WEEKEND!!

  • 5 of 5
Still basking in the glow from our weekend in Palm Springs at the Dupont Estate. We had 15 guests for my wife's 50th birthday. What a perfect place for a large group. We felt like we were part of the Rat Pack sipping on our cocktails at such a wonderful venue. Each and every one of our guests left with the same comments that they made upon their arrival: "this place is ridiculous!" The pool is fit for 30 with comfort. The hot tub is also huge. We dubbed the pool house "the Bing" because that is where our late night cocktails were consumed (right next to the putting green of course). Can't say enough and we will definitely be back with new and improved bionic livers!! Thanks for everything Lynne!!

BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We were here for my husband's birthday. We were a total of 5 couples.
This property is just incredibly beautiful! It is a very deceiving piece of property. You would never know from the street that behind the gate is a HUGE house with a HUGE backyard!
The 4 bedrooms are all decorated beautifully with queen size beds. The media room has a futon bed which can comfortably sleep one adult or 2 kids.
The master bedroom is incredible! King size bed with practically a living room between the bed and Flatscreen TV.
The master bath is beautifully decorated with it's own Jacuzzi tub and a private Jacuzzi outside the bath.
The living room is HUGE with a baby grand piano and plenty of room to dance or just hang out. There is also a bar with a wine refrigerator.
The kitchen is fully stocked with state of the art appliances including a pretty cool coffee machine!
There is an incredible sound system throughout the house to play your music from your IPOD. You need to download the SONO app in order to play from your IPOD.
Outside is spectacular! HUGE yard where you can run around or play football. It's surrounded by grapefruit and orange trees. The pool area is large with a shady area for people who want to stay out of the sun. The owners provided pool towels, sunscreen and magazines!
There is a spa house that has a kitchen, fitness room and an area with tubs.
It also has it's own sound system to play music by the pool.

Even though it was pretty hot, we enjoyed the beautiful stars in the sky amongst the swaying palm trees at night with a nice glass of wine.

I would definitely recommend this property! We had a really good time!

FABULOUS EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Spent 4 awesome days at the DuPont Estate 2/21-25. Had 15 people stay the entire time, with an additional 10 who joined for a 60th birthday party celebration. The compound provided plenty of room and activities for everyone. Some of the party never even left the property! The pool, hot tub and sauna were in use constantly. The evenings were cool so thoroughly enjoyed the living room fireplace which provided a nice warmth and ambiance. Being close to stores allowed for quick runs to pick items up. Very much enjoyed all the fresh fruit surrounding the property, and with 3 acres, there was plenty of ground to explore. We hired a chef and masseuse for the weekend so had great food and very relaxed by the time we left. The chef remarked how well equipped the kitchen was. The espresso machine was popular as well. Lynne and Rob are gracious property owners.

PARADISE ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
This is paradise! From the moment you enter the expansive living room, furnished in impeccable modernist style, with a white baby grand player piano tinkling in the background, you know hat this us no ordinary retreat destination. A huge expanse of windows open out into an immaculately groomed garden, with tastefully designed sitting areas, a gas fire pit, and a full sized pool and hot tub. Date trees tower over the lawn, and flowers and shrubs give color and shade. Inside, each bedroom has its own unique decor and accompanying bath, providing privacy within a communal setting. No detail, no matter how small, is overlooked. The kitchen is a dream, with every gadget and appliance imaginable. I especially loved with built in Melita coffee machine, and the spacious kitchen island was perfect for family cooking sessions.
The master bedroom, with its state of the art shower room and Jacuzzi tub, is enhanced by the adjacent enclosed private outdoor space and hot tub . I lay in the tub for hours, looking at the stars, while my family cooked and played in the pool. I can not think of a better way to relax.

The modernist furnishings have been chosen with exceptional care. The two while leather chaises that look out into the garden area are a treasure, accompanied by the arc of a period lamp, and a leather seating area facing the fireplace. Everything is easy but elegant, providing an incentive to breathe and unwind. Of course, the sauna/tub in the bathhouse is another option; there are so many ways to detoxify and breath into needed relaxation.

I feel that the photos can not do the place justice. They can not capture the sweep of the lawn, or the spaciousness of the rooms inside.It is difficult to assess the elegance the home from the street, but the looking inward from the outdoor fire pit through the expanse of glass walls, one is amazed by the perfect modernist "Architectural Digest " look that has been achieved.

The owner left us to our privacy, but was instantly available for any questions we might have.She even recommended the perfect nail salon, right around the corner! The pool and tubs were at a perfect temperature. The entire property is faultlessly groomed and maintained.My only sadness is that we had to depart, leaving Paradise with a hope to return. I would recommend Dupont Estates to anyone who appreciates a perfect vacation .
