LUXURY HOME ON ¾ ACRE, WALK TO EL PASEO, GOLF AND MORE

Palm Desert House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The home is beautifully decorated in southwestern style art and custom made furniture. Full granite countertops are everywhere, porcelain tile floors with oriental rugs, very large HDTV combined with living room stereo and theater, digital sound system throughout the entire inside and outside areas, large, flat screen TVs in each of the 3 bedrooms, beautiful sunken tennis court with a computerized tennis ball machine (you can almost play against it), a saltwater pool (with shallow end) with an adjacent Jacuzzi and gas fire pit, outdoor patios that wrap the entire side and backyard overlooking the tennis court, and beautifully landscaped, gorgeous flower beds (the tennis court is surrounded by oleander in season). The very private almost 3/4 of an acre, totally enclosed side and backyard make you feel like you're on your own Hawaiian island, walk-in showers with instant hot water, fully equipped. And I mean fully equipped - all you need to bring is a toothbrush, as the house has plush linens, tennis rackets, and ping-pong rackets for the outdoor covered and lit Ping-Pong table, 2 1/2 car garage, printer, modem and wireless DSL. It has two large master suites at opposite ends of the house for great privacy, and a third bedroom that can also act as an office which opens into the living room by sliding large double doors. Each of the 3 bedrooms has an adjoining full bath, the master suites each have double sinks. It is a fabulous party and family set up, with the fully modern kitchen opening both into the large dining room and living room. The two master suites have walk-in closets.

There is both an indoor and outdoor bar, with the outdoor bar having a built in high end barbeque grill and radiant grill.

If the tennis court, large swimming pool (yes unlike most pools you can really swim laps), and the golf don't take 10 years off your life and your waist, then maybe some of the best hiking and biking trails in the entire valley that are just a few blocks away will. There are extensive trails which are also dog-friendly. There is nothing more exhilarating than getting up early every morning and doing a 45 minute hike to one of the nearby peaks. Back home, for a refreshing dip in the pool (heated, of course, and with electric cover to retain the heat), scrumptious pastries while basking in the cool air and warm sun, and then onto the tennis court – all at one-fourth the cost you would pay at a resort.

For those of you who know the Coachella Valley (which incorporates everything from Palm Springs to La Quinta), the hottest, most popular location in the entire Valley is EL Paseo Drive where all the best and most fun restaurants reside. It is compared only to Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills for its exclusive shops. Now the great news - you can walk to El Paseo from the house, as it is only four blocks away! We warn you in advance, though, that if you drink two margaritas at the ever popular (even in the heat of the summer) Armando’s Mexican restaurant, walking home is the safest way to go. Other great restaurants walking distance away are Sullivan’s, Maestros, Pacifica, and The Grill.

You may think that Phoenix/Scottsdale is golf capital of the United States. Wrong. It's Palm Springs/Palm Desert/La Quinta with its 120 golf courses. Unlike crowded Phoenix, getting to any one of them is only minutes away. Additionally, Palm Desert's mild winter weather means they're almost never any freeze delays, and getting 36 holes in a day is a cakewalk.

On the subject of golf, the second oldest golf course in the entire Valley is just down the street from our house, three blocks away. You can not only walk to it, you can walk and play golf! Bing Crosby once belonged to the course, it is open to the public and it has exceptionally reasonable rates, like $50. It may not be as luxurious as some of the premium courses in the Valley, but it is a great place for a little warm-up, practice and relaxing play.

There is no place in the United States that has better weather in Palm Desert in the late fall, winter, and early spring. And that even includes Hawaii, because Palm Desert has no humidity. The evenings are cool enough that you just need a light jacket, and the days are in the 70s to low 80s with sunshine almost 365 days a year. And yes, since it never rains, no one's vacation is ruined because of the rain (or snow). There is literally no better place to be in the winter.

Tracy is a nationally known securities lawyer, representing investors in securities arbitrations. Douglas is a nationally recognized securities fraud expert witness. They live in the mountains of Colorado with their kids - 2 Alaskan Malamute dogs!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

The Coachella Valley has the best winter weather in the US (including Hawaii). Palm Desert is the most central, active community in the Valley and much younger than Palm Springs. Even with no rain, the whole community is beautiful flowers and green grass - a true desert oasis becuase of the huge aquifer under the valley floor. Golf capital of the United States with over 120 golf courses. Shopping, restaurants, activities abound, a true resport paradise. The Palm Desert life style is a perfect contrast to our Colorado home.

Seems almost impossible that the property is close to everything you might want to do on vacation. Nothing, repeat nothing is far away and many items YOU REALLY CAN WALK TO. Mountain hiking trails, a golf course, #1 shopping and resturant district in the whole valley. It is amazing to be in the desert and have beautiful mountains surrounding you.

Awesome Vacation Rental!

This is a great rental house! Very close to El Paseo, and loved the option of walking to dinner at night, or to lunch/shopping during the day. There are tons of great restaurants in El Paseo. We also cooked at the house many nights and it is incredibly well-stocked for a rental. It's super clean, lots of entertainment options are provided w/ many TVs, tennis court, pool and ping pong. You are also driving distance to many attractions, as the location is very central and the Palm Springs area is quite spread out. Tracy was great to work with and it was pleasure renting this house. Would definitely recommend it highly!

We just left this great house. This house was perfect for our family. The outdoor space is amazing. The Pool, Tennis Court, terrace, furniture is all top notch. The inside is amazing, the furniture is beautiful and comfortable and there was not one thing we needed. Being able to walk to hiking, dining, shopping was so great that we did not use our car much. We walked every night to dinner. The outdoor bar/grill/frig was an added bonus. You can drive to local attractions, downtown Palm Springs, LaQuinta, etc which are all close by. We will stay at this wonderful home again if we visit Palm Desert. The owners were professional and wonderful to work with and overall, it was a great rental experience. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

A Perfect Place!

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home while on vacation in Palm Desert last week. Wow! The home is absolutely gorgeous, very spacious, and extremely well-equipped! It was so great having the pool, and tennis court right there, and we took full advantage of both, and also had fun playing ping pong, and just laying in the sun! Every effort has been made by the owner to make sure guests are comfortable and have everything they need. There were two couples besides my husband and I, and we ALL agreed that we would love to stay there again!! The pictures don't quite do it justice - it truly is a beautiful place, conveniently located, and an awesome place to stay!! Thanks so much to Tracy, for being so easy and pleasant to work with, and for creating such a wonderful place for folks to rest and relax!

This was our first experience with VRBO and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The home was perfectly located within walking distance of El Paseo, with food and shopping galore. The home was beautifully appointed with all the necessities provided. We were able to relax without the need to leave for activities because we enjoyed them all right there. The pool, Jacuzzi, tennis court, ball machine, ping pong table, and board games were thoroughly enjoyed. The surround sound system inside and out added to the vacation vibe. Thank you for a fabulous home away from home experience. We will definitely use VRBO for our future vacation plans.

Another great stay in Palm Desert

We have rented this home a number of times over the past few years. We love the private tennis court and proximity to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. It is a well maintained, lovely home that is very private yet close to shopping and dining. It feels like your own private resort. The drive from San Diego through the back country (highway 74) is picturesque and a quick 2 hours. The homeowners are easy to work with and respond to emails promptly.
