Beautiful mid century modern desert home with lush tropical yard

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with a party of 8 for a 4 day Coachella weekend.

The interior was beautiful and fully stocked with towels, bedding, flat screen tv’s, entertainment options, Washer and dryer. Had amazing outdoor areas to relax and chill out in. 3 sides of the backyard were separate experiences from sunup to sundown. All you would expect from a vacation property. Great location in palm desert. Quiet and private.

We cannot share the rave reviews this property previously garnered. The purported stunning luxury was rather tired. Bathrooms and kitchen were old and need remodeling. Exterior living space is nice, but overgrowth of vegetation does not permit sunshine to reach the pool. Electronics were confusing (TV did not function for the five days we stayed). We had problems setting the alarm when leaving the home. And worst of all, we were burglarized of jewelry while out enjoying the Palm Springs area during the day. There were no signs of forced entry. Owners seemed nice, but an offer of a future free night's stay was insufficient to change our views. There are definitely better places to stay for the price.

Great for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend in March 2018 with three other couples. We all loved it and had a great time! Furnishings are upscale, comfortable and very "zen." Bedding is very comfortable and so were the beds. There are three normal size bedrooms and one very small room with twin beds. The room with the twin beds was very small, but that was ok because we really didn't spend any time in there. There is a huge comfortable family room with a large tv and there are multiple seating areas outside. The jacuzzi and pool are fantastic, as is the yard. Everything was clean and in perfect working order, and all members of the group would absolutely return. The property has a gated driveway for privacy and safety and we were able to fit several cars there. The location was great, and some were able to walk to the Paseo for meals. The house has a great "flow" and really lends itself to a group who wants to hang out together. The owner is very nice and was immediately responsive to inquiries. The only regret we had about staying here, was having to leave!

A true desert Oasis.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. There is far more privacy than you'd expect for a home in suburban environment. With the waterfall running masking the occasional passing car the outside world doesn't intrude at all. Decks on two sides of the house and a lawn on on the third side mean there is no shortages of places hangout. The home theatre works well for when you don't want to be outside. Beds comfortable, more towels than I've ever seen in a rental before. We'd recommend this home without reservation.

This was the perfect getaway. Doesn't feel like you are in a neighborhood, feels very private. Falling asleep to the waterfall and waking up to tranquility was exactly what these 8 ladies needed. The host was great and easily available for questions. There are a lot of bells and whistles here, and all worth it. Would definitely return.

Paradise is the appropriate word to describe this home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our stay at this beautiful home. It is better than described and exceeded our expectations. Extremely private and spacious. The home is peaceful, comfortable and spotless. The beds are very comfortable with high quality bedding . We would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to stay in Palm Desert and look forward to coming back again soon!
