Rancho Mirage House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the tranquil Tuscany neighborhood in Rancho Mirage! This very special single family home is just moments away from shopping and fine dining (El Paseo and The River), nightlife (McCallum Theater, first class casino hotels, theaters and live music venues), plus an abundance of recreational activities (golf-tennis-pickleball and more).

The Owners here travel frequently to Europe and have transformed this expansive property into a Tuscan villa...From the furnishings and artwork to the fabulous backyard, boasting custom stone patio, numerous water features, outdoor kitchen, grape arbors, citrus trees plus large dining gazebo with massive Tuscan-style farmhouse table with seating for all your family and friends.

The floorplan is open and inviting, including a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances plus all the necessities any chef would relish, with attached wet bar and separate eating area overlooking the warm family room and patio area. In addition there is a well appointed formal dining area and living room off the main entry.

The home features three large bedrooms, two with queen beds and private baths, and the the third, the master suite, offers en suite spa bathroom plus king sized bed,romantic fireplace, walk-in closet, HDTV and direct access to the rear yard.

And for those cozy nights at home, the media offerings include a 65' SHDTV (making 4 TVs in all!) with Blu-Ray DVD Player, Apple TV, and Bose sound system. A Yamaha electric piano with Karaoke microphone also awaits the musically inclined in your group.

The residence sits behind custom wrought iron security gates, and the neighborhood, which is also gated, is highlighted by a community pool and children's playground. Comfort, luxury and security in a magical setting...this is truly a unique property, created for those who appreciate the beauty of Tuscany!

About John Cox

I moved to Newport Beach California in1961 from Lincoln Nebraska. After 40 years on the coast spending many a weekend in the desert I couldn't resist the opportunity to buy this property. Now this vacation rental gives me the opportunity to spend more time in Tuscany Italy.

John Cox purchased this house in 2010

Why John Cox chose California Desert

I am fond of Tuscany Italy. Especially Arezzo and the San Fabiano Estate near the Medicean Vasari Aqueduct built in 1600 (Pictured above) When I found this property in Rancho Mirage Tuscany I thought it was an omen. It has the feel of Italy with all the American amenities.

What makes this house unique

I love the Tuscan style of this home and neighborhood. The home sits on a lot that looks like a compound with its own private gate. The exterior has an Italian feel with it pergolas and olive trees, waterfall rock garden patio, and cypress trees. The interior has a very Italian feel with its design and furnishings. It is a very quiet and comfortable place to reside.

Tuscan Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a 2 month stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The outdoor gardens and waterfalls were especially appreciated and the outdoor dining in the evening under the pergola with the stars out and the fragrant lemon blossoms are memories we will always have.

The TV reception on the massive screen was very good and recording was straight forward...used it frequently. Kitchen has lots of cooking utensils, herbs, spices, etc. and we ate in at least 4 nights a week and found the kitchen easy to navigate. Great stay, and thanks John for your dining suggestions.

Treasured Times in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

For the second year in a row we have enjoyed the sunny south in the luxury of staying at this beautiful and spacious home. It provided every amenity we needed and we particularly enjoyed the lovely landscaped back yard with many flowing fountains, an outdoor kitchen and lots of comfortable chairs for lounging or for having guests for supper. It was also a bonus to have an electric piano to play, a pastime I really enjoy. The only disappointment of our stay was that the community pool was not heated and that is something we used every day the year before as it was heated then. Tuscany is a beautiful, well kept and quiet gated community.

True vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

A true desert oasis for our family Christmas vacation. The house is located few minutes from everything and the community is very well manicured. John was really helpful with tips and really accomodating with our schedule (cancelled flight). We found the Tuscan villa well stocked and nothing was really missing. After a day of fun activities coming home to this rental property was simply great. In our next trip the Tuscan Villa will for sure be on the top of our list.

Relaxing Stay In Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful Tuscan Villa that had every convenience we could ever need. We especially enjoyed the wonderful and spacious layout of the home and were so glad to have lots of space when our kids came to stay during the February break. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the piano and we watched lots of tv on the 60" screen. It was so handy to have an outdoor kitchen and barbecue for entertaining outside. We made good use of the heated community pool that was only a block away. The location suited our needs perfectly as it was close to many of our friends and relative who were in the are at the same time. The grounds were well kept and manicured with many roses blooming by mid March. What a treat! The breathtaking view of the mountains and palm trees never got old! We would definitely stay here again where such relaxing and fun memories were made this year.
