Overview

Rancho Mirage House Rental Photos and Description

4300 sqft. Home. 5 Master Suites, Private Tennis, Pool & Spa, Mountain Views

BIGHORN VIEW ESTATE

Your Vacation has been hard-earned so don't waste it by staying somewhere that doesn't have everything! Nothing is worse than getting somewhere only to find that you are miles away from the attractions you want to enjoy and spending half your time in the back of a cab. Or worse yet, spending extra money at the Spa or Hotel because you don't have a hot-tub or quiet place to relax in your room. Bighorn View Estate is a one-acre Private Estate that has so much to do, you may never leave. But if you choose to, you are within walking distance to some of the best Restaurants and attractions the Desert has to offer.

At Bighorn View Estate you can play tennis on your own private tennis court, and you won't get 'blown away' by a sandy desert Scirocco. That's because the Magnesia Falls Cove is one of the few coves protected from the wind on 3 sides by the lovely San Jacinto Mountains. Take a swim in the private swimming pool, or relax in your secluded hot-tub, resting just outside your Master Bedroom. Don't forget, you have a full kitchen, so maybe staying in for the night and pay-per-viewing a movie is the way to go. If you choose to invite some friends over, there is no better place to entertain. Guests can be screened at your own Private iron gates. Then you can greet them as they come up the 25 foot wide stairway to the Estate entrance. Try that at your Hotel!

And if you decide to go out, try a leisurely walk under the stars down to the River Shops and Restaurants. The newest and most beautiful outdoor attraction Rancho Mirage has to offer, boasting Restaurants, shopping, and movie theaters. In fact, there are an amazing 49 restaurants located within a 1mile radius of Bighorn View Estate. 91 Restaurants in a 3mile radius. There is no better location to be in all the Desert.

Don't have regrets after your next vacation, you have worked too hard for it. Don't spend half the vacation getting lost on Cab rides. Forget the yucky public pool at the hotel and over-priced room service. Do it right and you will have the best experience possible at Bighorn View Estate!

P.S. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Use the Bighorn View Estate for your next Family Reunion, Group meeting, or Girls Getaway! Compared to renting a block of rooms at a local hotel, it can end up costing about half the price, and yet has so much more to offer!

Happy Vacationing!

About Rocio Pauley

I have spent half my life in the Desert and half in beautiful Santa Barbara. I currently live in Santa Barbara with my lovely wife and three boys. Life is always interesting with a full house and 'getting away' to the Desert is a great way to 'recharge the batteries'. The kids love it down there and Grandma loves the fact that her Grandkids are in town quite frequently now. After 16 years as a Financial Advisor, I have been blessed with the ability to buy this 'one-of-a-kind' Estate.

Rocio Pauley purchased this house in 2008

Why Rocio Pauley chose California Desert

It has taken 20 years but I have finally arrived back in Rancho Mirage, just one block away from the home I grew up in! I was born in Rancho Mirage and spent many Birthdays as a kid at Bighorn View Estate, as my best friend lived there and had the same Birthday as I did. When the Estate came up for sale, it was clearly Destiny, and I had to buy it. I hope you can share in the enjoyment my family has had there over the years.

Happy Vacationing!

What makes this house unique

Bighorn View Estate has all the amenities I need to enjoy doing my favorite things. Wake up and swim laps in the pool. Head out for an amazing hike up The Magnesia Falls. If I am lucky, see a few Bighorn Sheep on the ridge. Later in the day, a 'friendly' game of Doubles Tennis on our tennis court....Then its cocktail hour. Sit out on the back patio and watch the sun set slowly over the beautiful mountains...Head inside and Pay-per-view a Classic movie and then jump in the hot tub and relax. What a great way to end the day! Oh yeah, the central location is perfect. Just 15 minutes from La Quinta and 15 minutes from Palm Springs and Palm Springs Airport!

Tennis trip that won't soon be forgotten!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! We had 5 families (1 in each bedroom) staying here and we never felt like we were on top of each other! The home is beautiful with every last detail thought of! The owners answered all of my emails immediately and Donna (the woman who met us there and showed us around) was so welcoming!!

We enjoyed and used every aspect of the house. The tennis court with an amazing view! The pool and hot tub, the grill. Indoors we were either gathered around the extra large TV or the chess table while listening to music on the speaker system!! We couldn't be happier and we will definitely be back!!

Big Horn beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this amazing property. From start to finish the owners were so easy to deal with and accommodating. The house itself is lovely and very spacious and the pool and tennis court were a great perk. There are several large common spaces and the bedrooms are also large and well appointed. The Kitchen is the smallest,charming room that functioned very well and was well equipted-all the basics and then some! Everything was updated and user friendly.The house is well located in Rancho Mirage-close to parks, shopping, restaurants, the zoo, walking paths. We can't say enough about the whole rental experience that worked so well for our multigenerational gathering. Thankyou to the owners for facilitating such a great experience!

Perfect for Our Group

  • 5 of 5

We needed two homes close together for 6 adults and 8 kids participating in a local triathlon. 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids) stayed at BIGHORN and the rest at another home down the street. The reality is that the entire group spent most of our spare time, other than sleeping, at BIGHORN. The home was immaculate and the tennis courts gave a bunch of beginner tennis players with a memorable experience. Bedrooms are as advertised, home was roomy and the pool, hot tub fit the bill. Easy to go for a hike up the mountain and more.

Great customer service from the owner and the owner's mother and father who live in the area and greeted us upon arrival to go through everything. Small tip: Ask for the portable light that is stored on property unless you are good at BBQing in the dark. Lifetime experience for our kids! Would definitely return.Thank you

AWESOME RENTAL!!!

  • 5 of 5

Eleven of us (6 adults and 5 children) have stayed at this property for three years now over the grandchildren's Spring Break. There is plenty of room for the entire group. The comfort of the home and amenities, such as the pool, hot tub, and tennis court, has allowed our family to reconnect and truly enjoy each other's company. The location is perfect for day trips or local shopping & restaurants. Working with the owner has been wonderful. They are extremely helpful if you have any questions or needs during your stay. They are a pleasure to work with. The property is very well maintained. We would highly recommend it to others!

Vacation Home of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home recently for a family reunion. The home was extremely comfortable for the number of family members we had attend! Plenty of social areas and sleeping a breeze for 16! The salt water pool is so relaxing and the landscaping and views are breathtaking. Will definitely return for another family gathering. Thank you to the wonderful owners that were very friendly during the booking process.

Perfect Getaway for Families

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! There was so much room for all of the families plus young children--we never felt crowded. The kids and adults had a blast and we plan on returning with the same group next year. Also, the owner and his mother (who met us there) were very accommodating and responsive!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We work very hard to make the home as accommodating as possible, especially for families. It is so rewarding for us when we can share our home with such appreciative families. See you next year! Patrick
