When you enter the exclusive private gated community of Santo Tomas, you know you have come to the right place. This 9 acre lake sets the stage for one of the nicest vacations you will ever have in the desert. Our luxurious home is situated on almost ½ acre with 182 feet of lake frontage (one of the eight largest lots on the lake); has a private boat dock and a 16’ Electra Craft party boat for cruising the lake. While you will feel you are away from it all, you are actually less than 15 minutes from El Paseo, The River, and Old Palm Springs known for their great restaurants and shops. Within minutes you are on some of the finest golf courses, tennis courts, and hiking trails in the country.
This 4 bedroom 4.5 bath executive home built in 2005 with a casita with its own private entrance is the largest model in Santo Tomas with over 3350 sq. ft. of living area. Whether you are a snow bird, golfer, tennis player or sun worshiper, from the moment you enter “your home away from home” with its 9, 12, and 14 foot high ceilings, crown molding and pillow edged Italian travertine floors, you will know you made the right choice for your vacation. This home is relatively new to us and was not purchased with the purpose of using it as a rental – rather, it is our second home. So in our remodel, we spared no expense and the furnishings are of the highest quality. Thus, we are very particular and always interview perspective renters.
The master bedroom and casita both have king size beds and the two guest bedrooms have queen size beds. Each, of course, has it own private bath. The master bath has a soaking tub and a walk-in shower. Three of the four bedrooms have flat screened HDTVs for individual viewing.
The great room and kitchen have a magnificent view of the lake and open on one side to a beautiful courtyard furnished for dining or just relaxing around the fountain and on the other side to the immense side yard with salt water pool and spa, gas barbecue, large grassy area and beautiful landscaping. Inside the great room, you can enjoy the 55” HDTV, gas fireplace and wet bar while cooking in the gourmet kitchen that is equipped with your every need. Meals can be served formal in the dining room or casual in the kitchen or courtyard.
Should business interrupt your vacation, our home is equipped with high speed internet modem, 4 in1 fax/copy/scanner, and unlimited phone calls throughout the United States and Canada.
We hope you will take the time to check out our photos and look at the short video but please bear in mind that we have made numerous upgrades to our home since this video was made which are reflected in the new photos that have been posted.
Most of our guests have been Santo Tomas return visitors because Santo Tomas is such a special place. We hope to hear from you.

We purchased this home as a future retirement home away from home when we can spend more time in the desert playing golf, relaxing, etc. We look forward to that day. In the meantime, we decided possibly we should offer our beautiful home to others since we are not retired yet. Maybe next year!

We leased this home in 2014, 2015 and again this year 2016. We have been coming to the desert for many years but the moment I found this home, I booked it and as you can see we returned several times.
This home is exceptionally clean and elegantly decorated inside. The almost ½ acre yard is beautifully landscaped, private and peaceful and the heated salt water pool and spa most enjoyable. But what was even more fun was driving the boat on the lake. I even got myself a Captain’s hat! Our home away from home here in Santo Tomas became the congregating place for our many Canadian friends.
We highly recommend this home not only for its comfort and beauty but also because of the owners. We would describe them as friends not landlords. They always made us feel so welcome did everything possible to ensure that our stay was a perfect one.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to return next year – so our loss is your gain. Book it now.
Our stay at this property was perfect. The house is exactly what you would expect from a five star property. The furnishings and accessories complimented the class of the home. Keys words to describe this home are well maintained, clean, perfect location, boat, quiet, salt water pool and well accessorized. The owner contact to ensure the home was perfect added to our enjoyable stay. Thank you Janice. Will love to return.
My husband and I spent 5 weeks at this home away from home. From the moment we entered the quaint gated community and gazed at the private lake with docks and boats at the homes fortunate enough to be on the waterfront as this home was, we knew it was going to be an amazing, relaxing, and sunny Christmas. We were not disappointed...the home was as beautiful outside as in with lake views from the moment you enter the home. This home had everything and more than ever expected. The beautiful salt water pool was a real treat in December. The lake was lovely as was the electric boat. After two quiet weeks, our kids and grand kids joined us. It was truly a home built and equipped with everything to make the dream of a family vacation come true! We have rented homes in Hawaii, Florida, Scottsdale, and various locations in Europe, but nothing compared to this!!!! We would becoming back but loved our experience so much that we are now searching for our own home and a piece of paradise in the same area.
We loved every moment of this dream home!

This is our second year at this fabulous home. We came this year and brought another couple for 10 days and they felt like they were in heaven. The salt water pool is a must on the really hot days and we had lots of them. The boat for cruising around was great. This year we even had some baby bunnies born hidden by the front door. The new palm trees planted when we left last year looked great this year. Everything you need is in this home. Staying in Rancho Mirage makes it close for everything you want to do. The owners are always available and make sure that everything you need for a relaxing, peaceful, beautiful holiday comes with this home. Thank you again. Hope to be back next year.
We rented this fabulous property for 30 days and believe me we did not want to leave. We wanted peace and quiet and a place to relax. This home had it all and more. The beds are so comfortable you can't help but relax. Free long distance calling was a must and this home offers this. The lake has birds, catfish and even turtles. We even saw baby ducks. The pool is salt water and was heavenly to use, especially with the pool noodles for floating. We enjoyed it so much we hardly went out to eat, barbecue was too nice to pass up. The owners are great people and extremely easy to deal with and are always avavailable when we needed to speak with them. They went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. And don't forget the electric boat. That is a must to try. My husband and I have stayed at many places but this was the best holiday we've ever had.
Spent 2 months at this beautiful home this year. Was great. Great views, sun, location and house layout. Really enjoyed our stay and our hosts couldn't have been more accomodative. Would stay here again
