Your vacation starts the minute you enter the foyer at Villa Sago. Set your keys down on the beautiful custom made copper and hand-painted wood table and come in to your private desert retreat. If you are looking for a larger-than-average pool, a comfortable home, and access to 45 public golf courses, you have found your dream!
You will discover a master bedroom with King pillow-top mattress, a walk-in closet, TV, original art, excellent reading lamps, and new luxury linens. Adjacent to the master is a large bright bathroom with outdoor access to a charming east-facing courtyard – the perfect sunny spot for your morning coffee. The master bath has dual sinks, plush towels, and a sunken Roman jetted tub and shower. It’s so cool to enjoy your shower with the sun pouring in while overlooking your private courtyard.
The second bedroom has a new Queen bed dressed with a fun animal print and new linens. One gorgeous designer lamp and one funky (you be the judge) lamp provide good reading light. Large mirrored closets offer ample storage. En suite in this bedroom is an adorable half bath. A third full bath is across the hall and is well positioned to both the second and third bedrooms. All three bathrooms have windows, and feature complimentary luxury soaps, lotions, and hair care products.
The third bedroom features a new Queen sleeper sofa, and sliding glass door to the pool and lanai. This room is quite large and triples as a media room and office. In addition to the sofa – which also has a nifty chaise on one end – you will find a fabulous Mitchell Gold recliner, another comfy chair, a 55' high-definition TV, and a great working desk with printer and fax, if you absolutely must work. There is also complimentary and secure wi-fi throughout the house. For your entertainment, please feel welcome to use the reading library and DVD and music collections. The fabulous Art Deco floor lamp and original art in this room came from one of the desert’s best consignment shops, and if you are nice to us, we will tell you where it is.
Your husband wants to watch golf and you want to watch a DVD? No problem. There is also a brand new 46' high definition TV in the living room. This room also features comfy plush furniture, especially the zebra overstuffed chair and ottoman. Set your drink on the McGuire woven leather end table and put your feet up.
Of course, your drink comes from the retro bar cart, well stocked with beautiful glassware – including some of our martini glass collection and signature Oregon wine country wine glasses collected from years of touring our beautiful wineries – crystal decanters, and martini shaker. It’s cocktail time!
Once you’ve eased into cocktails, it’s time to think about dinner. Should you stay in and cook on your new gas BBQ (gas line connected – no messy propane to deal with), or in your well-stocked kitchen, or should you stroll down to El Paseo and let someone else cook you a fabulous dinner? Check our guest book for our favorite restaurants…we’ve uncovered a few gems that aren’t necessarily listed in all the guidebooks.
After dinner you will want to enjoy a swim in the big pool or a soak in the spa. Clothing optional – it’s private! Enjoy high-end pool chairs with built-in drink holders, fun noodles, and pool games. The lot is huge and features a big covered lanai with an Agio furniture grouping, outdoor sink and BBQ prep counter, bubbling fountain, and desert landscaping punctuated with original art. And to top it all off, your outdoor living area also includes yet another new flat screen 42' TV.
Villa Sago also has boring things like a washer and dryer, 2-car garage with remote, and parking for your RV or boat. And not so boring things like a quiet neighborhood with virtually no traffic, mountain views, and citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit.) Pool and landscape maintenance is included in the price. You will find Villa Sago fully stocked from olive oil and coffee, to TP and paper towels.
South Palm Desert has a small town feel with all the amenities of a large metropolitan area. Villa Sago is nestled close to some of the most exclusive homes and country clubs in the Coachella Valley, but without that price tag. South Palm Desert – it’s THE place to be!

Kay and Steve live in Portland, OR, and know exactly what snowbirds need and want in a desert retreat: we are our target customer. We’re picky, too, and know that Villa Sago will appeal to the discriminating guest. Kay is a frustrated hotelier and has channeled her energy into making Villa Sago perfect for our guests, down to the last detail.
We are both busy professionals who travel frequently, and we have experienced every type of accommodation out there, from 5-star European hotels to modest Chinese rooms. Our photo was taken at Silcox Hut, 7,000 feet up on Mt. Hood in Oregon. Kay is a museum docent and likes to garden and write in her spare time. Steve plays ice hockey and runs a 10K whenever he can. Both love golf, college football, and getting on an airplane and going somewhere.
Have you ever lived through an Oregon winter?!? We don’t tan, we rust. There are more slugs than people. We are ALL vitamin D deficient. You try growing a Sago Palm in Oregon. Enough said.
We enjoy the close proximity to El Paseo, along with a beautiful neighborhood for our morning walk. The privacy of Villa Sago offers us a serene getaway from our busy everyday lives in Portland. And, if there's a nicer pool and private lot anywhere in south Palm Desert, we haven't seen it.
