Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Escape to a totally private backyard oasis in Palm Desert. Palms, jasmine, bougainvillea, oleander, hibiscus, grapefruit and birds-of-paradise surround the newly refinished pool and spa. The yard has areas of full-sun and full-shade plus you can mellow out on the covered patio complete with ceiling fan for those hot afternoons and evenings. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac so you won't be bothered by highway or road noise. And since the home is a block from the golf course (not on the fairway) you won't have golf balls being hit into your lap. Nor do you have to endure golfers oggling you while you suntan or enjoy the pool. The pool, spa and patio are totally private.

Our home was totally remodeled in the past few years with new cabinets, counters, tile, carpeting and paint. Plus all the furnishings, linens and kitchenware are up-to-date.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create gourmet meals and all appliances, cookware, dinnerware (Mikasa) and utensils are high end. There's a big bar b q on the patio and it's natural gas so you don't have to worry about running out of propane halfway through a meal, or driving to a gas station to have the tank refilled.

Nothing ruins a vacation more than a bad sleep on a sub-standard bed. That won't happen in our home as we furnished with top-of-the-line Euro Top deep mattress beds. Plus the pillow/sham combination will offer you three different pillow choices to ensure a great night's sleep.

Relax in the leather recliner or recliner-sofa and watch your favorite high-def shows or movies on the 50' high def TV.. The cable package includes all the high def channels plus a DVR so you can record your favorite shows and movies - and golf tournaments - and watch them at your leisure. We also offer a small movie library for your enjoyment.

The backyard offers total privacy with 4 loungers and a 6 person dining table with chairs. The kidney shape pool and spa are centerpieces for the backyard. And there's lots of pool toys and floats to use. And if you fill up the hummingbird feeder you'll be treated to hours of fun watching them. Sometimes near dusk you'll see 4 or 5 around the feeder at the same time.

KID FRIENDLY! We have a 'Pack 'n Play, booster seat, infant 'safety bath', life vest and child-size plastic dishes for your use while at our home so you don't have to haul it on the plane. (see photos)

The location is great. Our home is located in Palm Desert immediately on the border with La Quinta and Indian Wells. You'll be just a few minutes walk to the Indian Wells Tennis Center and just a couple minutes drive to El Paseo, College of the Desert, Westfield Shopping Center and Old Town La Quinta. There's shopping close by with 4 grocery stores (Albertson's, Ralph's, Stater Bros. and Von's) and a Walmart Supercenter and Costco. All just 5 minutes away. And golfers, you're just 10 minutes away from Desert Willow with 2 of the best courses in the valley: Firecliff and Mountain View! And just 10 minutes from Classic Club, PGA West, La Quinta Resort. And 5 minutes from the Indian Wells Resort: Celebrity and Players Courses.

If you want PRIVACY and PEACE and QUIET - and a beautiful pool all to yourself, our home is absolutely the place for you.

* We also have a 2 bedroom condo for rent in the Monterey Country Club. See VRBO #331636.

About Gorde Edlund

My wife and I fell in love with the desert on our first trip in 2003. We dreamed that one day we would have our own desert paradise. That dream was fulfilled early in 2010 when we found this little gem in the Palm Desert Country Club. We both love to golf, hike and picnic in the desert and Joshua Tree National Park.

Gorde Edlund purchased this house in 2010

Why Gorde Edlund chose California Desert

We chose Palm Desert because of it's central location - you're never more than 15 to 20 minutes away from anywhere. We're close to our favorite golf course of Firecliff at Desert Willow; just minutes from our favorite spots to hangout like College of the Desert, El Paseo and the Living Desert. And it's just a short drive to some of the best restaurants around (try Okura Sushi, the Yardhouse at the River, P.F. Chang's at the River and of course, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion.)

What makes this house unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy. The backyard kicks butt.

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year spending our 2 week vacation at this wonderful home. It really does feel like home for us every time we arrive. We can't say enough about the comfort of this home. The beds are super comfortable! We sleep like babies. For those who like to cook, you will find everything you need and really great quality. Last but not least, the pool and backyard are everything you could imagine at a top notch resort! Gorde & Daphne have been amazing, wonderful host! Thanks again for a spectacular vacation!!

Fun Fun and more Fun

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Palm Desert ready to relax, eat good food, swim, golf, bike and hike and we did it all! Our group of three couples enjoyed the amenities of this home - well stocked, comfortable beds and convenient location. We began each day with the most amazing grapefruit picked from the property. Everything in the home was in good working order and Gorde was helpful and responsive. The location was a 40 minute walk or 10 minute drive to La Quinta Trader Joe's, Ross, Marshalls, In and Out burger, Target, and La Casuelas for Happy Hour. We rented bikes in Old Town La Quinta at Old Time Peddler. We took a lovely picnic to Joshua Tree National Park. Our Palm Desert holiday exceeded our expectations and hopefully we will be able to book this home again. This home is very comfortable and good value.

A Desert Gem

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located with a 10 min walk to Indian Wells tennis and only a short 15 min drive to some of the best golf courses. The home owners are a true pleasure to work with on any issue that may arise. Staying at this house with 2 young children was truly relaxing especially since you have an amazing pool right in your backyard. This house has it all hands down. I will be looking to book again for our next family trip to the valley. Simply amazing property.

Walking distance to the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament

  • 5 of 5

This place is so wonderful for a family and anyone else who loves the convince of having a home during the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament. We were able to walk to and from the tennis tournament and avoid traffic and parking fees. The owners were wonderful to work with and had a very well stock cabinet. We did not have to buy and food staples for the week.

We would love to stay again, but alas they are already booked for next March. Really a great property, loved the pool and just loved the whole neighborhood set up. Thanks again for a wonderful week in Indian Wells.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 very much enjoyed our week stay. Layout was functional and as described. The kids had hours of fun in the backyard pool. We enjoyed the private back yard and easy 'check in' with no problems getting keys, etc which has been an issue with other rentals. Nice relaxing week!

Very Functional Palm Desert Home:

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our visit of 7 days in late Feb early March....The home was well laid out with modern kitchen, family room, and exceptionally comfortable beds in bedrooms. The backyard was so Fabulous with pool/hot tub and wonderful landscaped yard--very private! Located to all that you need while there. So very relaxing and homelike stay.

I had left some medication lotion behind and the owner went above and beyond to get these items sent back to me . Since he lives in another state he had to spend hours of his personal time getting this arranged.
