Overview

California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

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

Our custom built, 2,400 sq foot, custom built home is located in a small gated community situated at the end of a cul-de-sac with breathtaking mountain views in the exclusive Gerald Ford corridor. With 3 luxurious bedrooms, 3 large bathrooms all with extra large showers, a private pool, spa and 3 fireplaces & 2 climate control zones, it has everything you need for your vacation!

The open floor plan allows for a wonderful retreat accommodating up to 6 guests. 10 foot ceilings and large picture windows make the house very airy and bright.

Bedrooms: 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths each with oversized glass showers including a large Jacuzzi tub and fire place in the master bathroom. Simmons Beauty Rest, pillow top mattresses in all 3 bedrooms. California King in Master Bedroom and Queens in each additional guestroom. Super fluffy down comforters, luxury sheets and down pillows so you can have a restful night's sleep. There is a 50 inch HDTV in master bedroom and 45 inch TV in 2nd bedroom both with cable boxes.

Livingroom area: Three fireplaces (one outside, one in the livingroom and one in the masterbedroom) create the finishing touch in luxury. The livingroom has direct access to the pool and has a 55 inch HDTV with a DVD player, Bose Sounds system, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and every channel you can imagine!

A gourmet 'cooks kitchen' is yet another showcase of the home. It overlooks the pool and greatroom so you can socialize with your guests while you cook. The kitchen is fully stocked with stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner gas range. A bar area and large island are the perfect spot for guests to gather during mealtime. If you'd rather cook outside, the custom BBQ has an outdoor refrigerator, sink and 4 burners. The kitchen is fully stocked with wine glasses, platters, stainless steel pots and pans, a blender, toaster oven, Krups coffee machine and everything else you can imagine!

The backyard is very private with tropical landscaping including 3 citrus trees and a lovely green lawn. There is a custom built sunning deck so you can either lay by the pool or go swimming. The covered outdoor livingroom has an outdoor fireplace which is just as beautiful at night with the pool lights on. The outdoor bbq has 5 burners, a refrigerator and an outdoor sink. If you like privacy, this is the perfect house for you. XM Satellite radio outside and pool inflatables to play with too!

The laundry room is equipped with a large capacity washer and dryer. The linen closet is stocked with cleaning supplies and fluffy towels. We also provide plenty of large pool towels!

Neighborhood: Our home is located in a gated community of 22 homes called Rancho Paloma. We are 1 mile from Mission Hills Country Club and 3 miles from The River (a beautiful development with movie theatres, shops and restaurants). We are 1 mile from Aqua Caliente Casino & Spa & 3 miles from Costco in Ranch Mirage.

Thank you for considering our home for your vacation. Many of our past guests tell us that the house looks better than it even does in the photos and that they love the house so much that they rarely want to go out!

Five Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

A group of six of us rented this house for a July 4th extended weekend. We wanted rest, relaxation, sunshine, pool/spa, beautiful surroundings, and a kitchen to cook amazing dinners. This house stood out immediately on VRBO and once I spoke to the Owner (who was so wonderful to work with) we were in... and it could not have been a better decision. The house is wonderful! Immaculately clean, well stocked and beautifully furbished. I felt like we were at our own home within the first evening because it is such a comfortable and warm space. The beds were top of the line comfortable and every bathroom had a spa like quality. Once we got supplies from Vons and Costco, we never left the house again! This is a low key, relaxing, luxurious, and quiet space that far exceeded my expectations. I can not wait to stay again!

Couldn't Ask For More!

  • 5 of 5

Had only a week to spend in this beautiful home. It lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Home is every bit as clean and luxurious as the pictures present it to be. Very close to Palm Springs airport and also to the I-10 and the 111 in case you need to visit other places in the area. We felt very safe in the gated community and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could wish for and the barbeque area is terrific. The pool area is beautiful and a wonderful place to sit and read for a while! We will be back (I hope!)

Great house and Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a breather and it provided us with exceptional rest. The house is well cared for in a gated community. Inside the furnishings are nice and the kitchen is perfectly stocked. We usually eat dinners out when we travel but the BBQ area made it easy to stay in, which we did on three different nights. The outdoor living room was a perfect place to rest. The house is perfect for a couple wanting privacy or a young family wanting some fun pool time. I would rent again from the owner Selene. She's awesome, just like her home.

Awesome Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage son and I stayed at this wonderful vacation property for a week. The property was by far the best we have ever stayed at. Pictures are accurate. The backyard is truly a private oasis! We spent most of our time in the backyard. Everything you could need in a kitchen. Very private and quiet property. Clean and well maintained. Property is very close to all amenities. Costco, Walmart, and many golf courses less then 10 minutes away. Selene was wonderful to deal with. Should we go back to the area we would definately stay here again.

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property February/2015 into March. I have been a realtor for 26 years and the house absolutely met our expectations! Very clean and well-maintained! A very spacious, open plan, appliances in great working order and all the supplies you could need. Kitchen is well equipped, and the TV's super with loads of channels and most important to us, great internet and comfortable beds! Lots of bedding, towels, including for the pool, yes a pool!!!! Great double attached garage, direct entry. Very quiet neighbourhood and secure as it is a gated community. Super pool, hot tub as well as other green space if needed for children playing and barbecue area with all the amenities for entertaining. We enjoyed the covered patio and furniture and satelite radio.... We would absolutely rent this property again!

Rest, Quiet, Extreme Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love staying in the palm springs area and this was our third time taking a week's vacation and renting a home. This home was by far the best we have stayed in and the owners were excellent to work with. They had everything taken care of, were fair in their pricing, and their home was perfect. The bed was super comfortable, the master bathroom was huge, and we loved cooking on grill, swimming, enjoying the fire pit and love cooking our favorite food in the well equipped kitchen. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing week in a great home and location!
