About Desert Ridge Estate

We wanted to make this home the number one place to visit in the desert. While vacationing here prior to becoming the new owners we looked for ways to improve on what was already beyond amazing. A vacation is important and we want everyone who comes here to have the best experience possible. Family and friends are valuable and spending quality time with them is the most important thing for us.

Desert Ridge Estate purchased this house in 2011

Why Desert Ridge Estate chose California Desert

I grew up in the desert area. I missed the peaceful nights where you can actual see the stars. The mountain views are breathtaking and the privacy of this Estate is ideal for our private get aways with friends and family. The activities are endless and we never leave once we're there.

If we do decide to leave ,we’re just minutes away from several world class golf resorts, the famous Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the Empire Polo Club and the heart of Palm Desert which offers incredible shopping, top notch entertainment, and unbelievable international dining experiences.

Great spot to relax and have some fun with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from securing the property up through departure was seamless. Marie was great to work with and accommodated our request for an early check in as part of the group was arriving early. The grounds were perfect for what we needed, and all the amenities were there (and then some!). Would definitely recommend and can't wait for a trip back!

Big Problem

  • 5 of 5

My group of 4 was in town for a Guys' Golf Thing, but didn't want to leave the house to play!

The VRBO photos pretty much paints the picture; if anything, it understates the facilities. Our stay was only 3 nights so didn't have time to fully take advantage of everything the property has to offer. Next time I hope to bring the entire family. BTW, if you like to cook, you'll love the kitchen. The grounds keeper was always at hand but otherwise invisible (and a great guy!)

Thanks, Marie, I had a great time.

Wonderful Women's Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 15 women have been vacationing yearly at Desert Ridge Estate for 5 years in a row. We can't imagine going anywhere else. The estate is beautiful, large, private and accommodating. We have everything we need at Desert Ridge - a professional and accommodating groundskeeper who helps us with whatever we need at any time, day or night; a beautiful and large pool ; a large outdoor table under a large patio cover with misters; a bar with an ice maker right off of the patio; an extraordinary view of the private lake; no neighbors so we can sing and perform using our PA system; a large prep/cook friendly kitchen that is well stocked; plenty of rooms/ beds for privacy and comfort; tvs in every room! We enjoy the spa in the evenings, and watch movies/tv some lazy afternoons in the large entertainment room with a huge screen. Marie the owner is very helpful and accommodating. We always look forward to our girl's weekend away. I highly recommend Desert Ridge Estate for any occasion including weddings and large parties/ special celebrations.

Our family had such a wonderful time at Desert Ridge Estates that they want to make it a yearly event!. The children enjoyed the pool, the game room, jet ski, and making smores in the evening. They were never bored. The adults had a chance to relax and talk with another in the spa, they fished and swam in the pool. An amazing time was had by all. It was difficult to leave.
