About Daniel Nabedrick

Daniel and Molly Nabedrick, we hope you will enjoy staying in our vacation home in Rancho Mirage at Magnesia Falls Cove. We love the privately gated grand circular driveway in the front yard, the resort style pool and jacuzzi in the back yard, the spacious wide spread four bedroom four bathroom floor plan, and the incredibly close proximity to The River at Rancho Mirage entertainment, shopping and dining destination. We have truly fallen in love with the small and cozy feeling of the Palm Springs Valley, with amazing mountain views everywhere, the lush botanical gardens and gorgeous palm trees covering the streets, and the fresh clean air and beautiful Southern California desert climate. Rancho Mirage is at the center of this outdoor recreational playground paradise, with great hiking, mountain and road biking, tennis and golf and much more all surrounded by the majestic San Jancinto Mountains Range. There are the most amazing views from anywhere in our home. Come explore, enjoy and relax at our vacation home.

Daniel Nabedrick purchased this estate in 2009

Why Daniel Nabedrick chose California Desert

We wanted a warm vacation destination getaway, from the cold winters of Minneapolis Minnesota. The Palm Springs valley has great weather, and a beautiful backdrop with the surrounding mountains all around us. Rancho Mirage is a beautiful manicured vacation destination, yet the valley has kept most of it's natural desert beauty, and the closeness to the 111 Highway give us easy access to anyone in the Palm Springs valley within minutes. If you like our vacation home in Rancho Mirage, come stay at our other vrbo vacation home in North Scottsdale, Arizon,vrbo #114587.

What makes this estate unique

What is really amazing about our home is the private gated garden enclosed yard surrounding the entire 1/2 acre compound from front to back yard and wall to wall around all four sides of the property with a large white cylinder block wall.

It also for incredible safety, security, privacy, front and back yard play areas and visiting areas for young children and adults as well. There is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the entire outside of the house in both front and back yard.

The front rotunda circular driveway and additional front driveway allows easy secured guest parking for as many as 6 cars.

And what about the back yard, well the back yard is truly and amazing place of beauty, tranquility, luxury vacationing for guests of all ages. There is a daylight circulating waterfall feature that descends from the elevated jacuzzi into the swimming pool. The Salt water pool and spa leaves your skin and eyes in much better shape after swimming and relaxing all day in the pool.

We also have a pool safety gate easily installed or taken down that is available for use when young children are along for vacation.

The backyard also features a separately elevated garden cement floor sitting area with couch and chair and fire pit. It is actually my favorite sitting room in the entire property and is great in the sun, the shade or at night around a cozy fire too.

Additionally we have a large covered patio dining room that sits 10, a nice covered patio grilling station with wet bar and wine beer chilling fridge out doors.

Top it off we have seven pool lounge chairs available for use when a big group wants to layout pool side.

And last there is another great separate master bedroom cozy patio space with double french walkout doors. A great place for King and queen to wake up relax and enjoy coffee and newspaper or a book in the morning.

So there it is, now you know why we love the property, great beds/baths and.........much much more to offer outside the home.

Stunning pool and back yard

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely fell in love this house. It was perfect for my large group friends that gathered for a weekend getaway! The pool and house was everything I hoped it would be and very accurate to the description painted on the website. If I had one complaint it would be that I would have loved some more detail about the checkout procedures ( I.e. What to to with used linens- strip beds or leave them, run dishwasher? Etc.) In my past stays with VRBO these details were a little more specific. But that's just being petty. I will definitely keep this house in mind for future stays in the rancho mirage area! Thanks again!

Exactly as advertised and a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 golfers out for the weekend and there was room for everyone and the house was very nice and clean. The off street parking accommodated all of our vehicles and it was nice to have everything secure behind the gate of the property. The outdoor space was great, bbq, covered seating a great pool and very private and nicely landscaped yard topped off the house. I would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back next year!

Great for Cochella/Stagecoach

  • 5 of 5

My group loved our stay here for the weekend of Stagecoach. It fit us all comfortably and we spent most of our time hanging out in the great backyard. The drive back and forth to the fairgrounds was not bad at all. I would definitely recommend this place for a festival weekend or any getaway. Thanks again!

Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

Nice, open, house with beautiful grounds. Picking a grapefruit from the trees for breakfast was a nice treat. Pool area was excellent to sit around with a large group. Attention to detail however requires improvement by owner. Door on oven wouldn't shut, dishwasher full of dishes when we checked in and towels were still in the dryer. Needs to sort out payment system with VRBO. Final payment couldn't be processed on system so had to mail a check and then wait two weeks for return of damage deposit. If these things get cleaned up, this house would be perfect!
