Palm Desert House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

50th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We are 5 women that were on a birthday girls getaway. The house was perfect! Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were great, kitchen was large & well stocked with dishes & even some food, spices & alcohol. The pool & jacuzzi were just what we needed! There were pool toys, nice lounge chairs, a covered patio & more. There were instructions for everything. When we had trouble with the tv, we called and the owners helped us through the process! The owners were very easy to reach and to respond throughout our contact with them. We highly recommend this house and we will return if we have the opportunity!

Wonderful home with very private back yard with a pool and hot tub. Everything was ready for our arrival including great weather. Owners were great to work with and very responsive. Neighborhood was friendly and quiet. We toured many sites, dinning and shopping venues. We will be back and will recommend this home to friends.

Just Great

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our January visit to Palm Desert and our "home away from home". Everything we needed, and more, was provided. We cooked nearly every meal , many on the gas BBQ. at home because after a quick trip to Albertson's we had all we needed.

The pool and hot tub were wonderful and we missed the hot tub after our return home.

We hope to be back again. Owners great to respond to all questions and easy to contact.

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful home after Christmas this year. The house was beautifully decorated and included everything we might possibly need and more. I LOVED the beds they were super comfy. The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. The pool and hot tub were so much fun for non stop play. We brought our 2 young children who had a blast. We spent most of the trip at the house lounging by the pool and hanging out in the house. The location of the house is perfect for sight-seeing, hiking or shopping. We definitely left feeling refreshed. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We hope to come back again soon.

Great Vibe

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic experience. Right from the beginning Gorde was responsive and quick to confirm, send information, etc. It was so nice to deal with someone who is on top of things. I had a feeling his home would reflect that too, and we were not disappointed. Everything was in great working order, and the kitchen was well equipped and very clean. What impressed us the most was the welcoming feel of the whole place. From the shared pantry supplies, to the layout, we definitely felt at home. The yard is completely private and the neighborhood very quiet. It is wonderful to wake up in the morning and look out over the pool. We travelled in the heat of summer, and appreciated having some shade on the patio where we watched the humming birds feed. We enjoyed this opportunity to unwind and re-charge our batteries, and would definitely come back!

Excellent getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed ten fantastic days at this property. Everything was well looked after and as pictured. It's close to all amenities and a short drive to the coast. We also took in the Joshua Tree National Park which is close by. This is our sixth visit to the area and we lacked absolutely nothing. Gorde is great to deal with and the house is spotless and well-stocked. So well in fact that it's a good idea to check before doing your grocery shop so you don't duplicate. I would definitely recommend to a couple or a couple of couples! Small families would also love the pool... The best part! Many thanks for sharing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. And a good tip to other guests to check what is in the cupboards before you grocery shop! We always do our best to keep condiments, spices and other little necessities like sugar, flour, olive oil etc. stocked. And guests will often leave sun lotion, shampoo etc. when they leave. We just bought a new first aid kit and placed it in the master ensuite, for those occasional scrapes and scratches that happen. And we're off to shop for new pool noodles and pool floats. We hope we can be your hosts again at our home in the desert in the beautiful California desert!
