Rented for my wife's 30th birthday over Halloween weekend. Property was as described and much more. Perfect compound feel for a large group of family and friends. Solid location near Costco, Bevmo, and Palm Desert restaurants/nightlife. Pool, sauna, outdoor firepit, lawn setup was great. Had great group meals at the house too. Sonos music is definitely a big plus for the tech savvy. I've had horrible experiences with security deposits after the fact but this experience was fair and great. Lynne is great with email, text and phone communication.
On November 27,2014 my wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. We were looking for a site that was not too difficult to get to and one that would accomodate the two of us, our four children and their spouses and our nine grandchildren as well. The Dupont Estate was the perfect answer. The entire facility is perfect for adults and children with a very large yard for every activity you can imagine as well as a beautiful clean pool and jacuzzi. We arrived to a spotless home with all of the amenities, even a piano which could be used as a player piano or standard piano for the grandkids to show off their musical skills. Our family likes to cook and the large kitchen and brand new barbeque were perfectly suited to us. I really can not think of anything more that could be said and the owners were very easy to deal with. I suppose the best reviewI can give is that the entire family wants to go back next year.
We recently rented the Dupont Estate for a guys' reunion golf weekend. We had 13 and the house easily accommodated our entire group with mostly everyone having their own bed and own room. The pictures listed are fantastic, but none really do it justice live. It's a ranch-style home with a guest-house and a spa-house (1 bdrm) in a compound style setting with huge grounds in the back-yard.
The bedrooms rooms are all impeccably maintained and styled in a really nice and fun manner. The beds are comfortable and there are multi-zone AC controls that allow for different temp settings for any unique personal likes. Fans and HD flat-screens are in all rooms from what I remember. The guest house is really cozy and we originally thought would be more of a crash-pad but it actually served as a great place for poker games and ping pong tourney on it's attached patio. It also have a full kitchen which was great. The main house is super-nice but very comfortable. The bar area was a lot of fun to use and the kitchen is incredible.
The grounds though were the highlight for us. The pools is really large and the jacuzzi can accommodate a big group, although we didn't use it much. There is also a great horseshoe pit and a fire pit which we really made good use of. The yard is huge and open and you could easily have a football or soccer game or bocce or all three at once considering how big it is. The yard is surrounded by fruit trees and palm trees which give it an oasis type of feel. It was really serene in the evenings and there was no threat of noise issues for neighbors as the property is so large that I doubt that anyone even knew we were there, which says a lot for a group of 13 guys that didn't turn in early. There's also plenty of driveway parking if you have multiple cars too.
This is just a really unique property for the desert and the owners are really great to work with. They can set up chefs or masseurs to come in, but we didn't opt for that. This is really a home-run property that is ideal for large groups, events, reunions, or whatever.
Thanks again, Lynne!!
Review #9467888 “Superb Business Retreat” 6-Stars
The DuPont Estate housed our annual Managers conference in October.
From the beginning of organizing the week's events, owners Lynne and Rob were extremely helpful with all the little details we had to plan.
The open spaces of the estate were important for the multiple meeting venues needed for breakout sessions, team building events and attendee round table sessions.
The guest house provided us with the large screen TV for Skype meetings with out-of-state guest speakers and a room large enough for everyone to be comfortable in the business atmosphere we needed. The kitchen adjacent to that area also provided refreshments and product discussion sample room all refrigerated.
One evening we built teams and organized a cooking contest, everyone participated and the Main Kitchen, outside Grill, and Guest House kitchen provided more than enough space. It fun, competitive and a great hands-on learning experience-
The entire home is appointed beautifully, all outdoor areas to sit and relax, small meetings and even an occasional croquette matches played well for open space and comfort.
Meeting Owner Lynne and all her exuberance to get it just right for her guest’s requirements is a testament to great execution.
You can ask anyone: Who would ever go to a Hotel and deal w/catering and those hard chairs, when there is a beautiful Estate where you can meet on your schedule.
What an unbelievable weekend we just had at the Dupont Estate. We had a wedding in the Palm Desert area, and the groom,/Groomsmen and parents stayed in this property. We also had a 100 person BBQ/pool party at the property on Friday for the “groom’s dinner” event. We had friends in from all over the USA.
In two words, the guests were “blown away” by the property. The grounds are so big, and well manicured, and the house is so “chic.” You feel like one of the Kennedy’s at Martha’s vineyard in the backyard.
Lastly, Lynne and Rob are two of the best people you will ever meet. They truly, truly want you to have the time of your life when you stay at their property. Any extra help they can provide on restaurant recommendations, vendors, anything it can be, they are willing to lend a hand. It was so appreciated. When we were planning for the weekend, we had a number of conversations, and Lynne gets as excited for you as one of your closest friends can be.
I cannot recommend this property more highly. It is perfect, the owners are perfect, and you will have a great time.
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.
