House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths including detached casita (Sleeps 6)
We live in Beverly Hills, Calif. and purchased this property as a second home. In the desert housing market with so many choices, the architecture, construction and floor plans of Oakmont Estates stood out. So we bought this house while it was still under construction, which allowed us to landscape and decorate it from the ground up. We furnished and stocked this home as a personal residence, not as a traditional bare-bones rental.
Owner purchased this House in 2000
Why Owner chose Rancho Mirage
Rancho Mirage is a beautiful city and is centrally located for easy access to all the Coachella Valley has to offer, from Palm Springs at one end to La Quinta at the other. Mission Hills Country Club is a top-notch community that boasts acres of open space, greenbelts and manicured landscaping, in addition to more golf fairways than you can count! It's also home to the ANA Inspiration LPGA tournament each spring and multiple tennis tournaments, both big and small, while the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells is just a few miles away. Once inside the gates of Mission Hills, you can stroll, bike or jog for miles without leaving this gated paradise.
What makes this House unique
This house is the perfect desert retreat and we find the workweek stress melts away and the fun begins as soon as we open the front gate. It's rich in amenities, filled with sunlight, private, quiet and very, very comfortable. The flow of this house is wonderful, with large rooms, wide hallways and high ceilings.

Excellent family spring break getaway
Just returned from a weeklong, multi-generational trip (2 adults, 3 kids, 2 grandparents) to Palm Desert for spring break. We have stayed at almost a dozen VRBO properties with the kids and grandparents, and this was among the best. The property is even nicer than the pictures would suggest.
The residence is relatively new, spacious, professionally decorated/furnished, and very clean and well-maintained. The separate casita (which houses the fourth bedroom) was nice for the grandparents. The pool is heated and safe (~5' at its deepest point), with nice features like selectable colored lighting.
The property's location within the gated Mission Hills community was ideal. We took daily runs around the community, and we were able to walk with the kids to the clubhouse to watch the Kraft Nabisco LPGA championship with the kids. The property also is close to the River shopping mall and restaurants, Agua Caliente casino (for the gambling grandparents), multiple golf courses, Costco, and Walmart.
The owners were very accommodating, working with us to solve an early problem with the internet access.
Relaxing with Tunes!
Friends and I got lucky finding this amazing home in such a perfect location to celebrate our "50" Birthday Year!!!! Its a beautiful home inside and out, very comfortable & elegant! VERY CLEAN and well maintained. Photos are very accurate! Sound system was perfect for inside & out!! ~ The location is central. Close to shopping at The River in Palm Desert to going to the Street Fair in Palm Springs!
Nearby shopping includes The River (Rancho Mirage), El Paseo (Palm Desert) and Palm Canyon Drive (Palm Springs), each with a variety of stores, boutiques and art galleries. Children will enjoy the Living Desert, Knott’s Soak City and the nearby Children’s Discovery Museum, while adults will enjoy the spas at the desert’s many resorts and casinos. You can walk throughout Mission Hills Country Club and enjoy the beautiful homes, golf courses and views, or hike the many trails of various lengths and difficulties in the nearby mountains (the views from up high are incredible!). Many other attractions and restaurant options are too numerous to list, but our central location puts them all within easy reach.
