Overview

The Movie Colony Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Sandacre sits on a rare one-acre lot in the heart of Palm Springs famous Movie Colony neighborhood. Discover a taste of Hollywoods golden era at this picturesque Spanish Estate dating back to 1933. The home was extensively renovated to enhance the splendor of its history, while updating the amenities to contemporary standards of luxury. High gates and tall shrubs provide you with complete privacy.

During the peace of the morning, pour a cup of coffee and stroll the grounds, discovering all that Sandacre has to offer. The classic tiled patio features both in-ground pool and hot tub. Relax on stylish deck furniture and look up to the rugged San Jacinto Mountains. Seek shelter under the poolside cabana or spend quiet afternoons on the second, covered patio. Challenge guests to a game of doubles on the private tennis court, then replenish your energy with an al fresco feast, prepared on the grill. An outdoor fireplace sets the tone for memorable evenings under the stars.

Elegant beamed ceilings hang atop the creamy hues of the great room, and light streams in through Spanish-style doors. The living room houses a plasma TV: just one of the villas many technological touches, including a home-theater system, Wi-Fi and more. Guests can chat to you from the living room, as you prepare a gourmet feast in the chef-appointed kitchen. Grand meals can be served in the charming dining room while quick bites can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar.

Sandacres five bedrooms are beautifully decorated, each presenting its own, unique vista of the grounds. The Master bedroom houses a fireplace at the foot of its four-poster bed. The second and third bedrooms are interconnected, while the fourth includes a cozy Double bed. Its rumored that Marilyn Monroe frequented the property and preferred the comfort of the fifth bedroom, in the tower.

You may never want to leave Sandacre, but if you do, theres lots to explore. The Movie Colony neighborhood makes for fascinating walks as its rich history unfolds before your eyes. Cruise down Palm Canyon Drive where youll find everything from upscale shops to fine dining, art galleries to vibrant nightlife and more. Appreciate your natural surroundings on one of Palm Springs many golf courses or head out to Joshua Tree National Park to experience the beauty of the desert.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Sandacre was so sweet, with swimming pool and tennis court, that some of our family never left the property during our four day stay. It was paradise for our active family. And the kitchen made cooking Thanksgiving dinner easy. The ten of us enjoyed this feast around the patio table in 70 degree weather, feeling thankful indeed. The pool temperature was so comfortable that the children lived in it, hanging out under the elephant fountain. The grounds were immaculate and the trees dripping with grapefruit, oranges and lemons. Needless to say, we loved every minute at the wonderful retreat!

Luxury and service at it's best!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Luxury Retreats for hosting our group. Everything from the property, to the house staff, to the concierge and the chef were beyond accommodating and had an amazing attitude.

This was a business trip for many of us- and we will make it a point to come back and work with Luxury Retreats for our personal trips.

Thank you Jazz, Larry and the Luxury Retreats team!

See you on TV!

It was all we imagined it would be. We have a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

I was surprised that the kitchen did not have pot holders or extra towels in the kitchen.

Everything else was in good order. The furniture in the family room would need a good cleaning the chairs had stains on them. The door handle in one of the bedrooms fell off and the guests had to go outside by the carriage house to get back in. Other than that we had a wonderful time
