About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Experience the best of Palm Springs at Mel House, a spacious, four-bedroom villa in the centrally located, El Mirador neighborhood. While just blocks from downtown, fences and tall hedges surrounding the property offer maximum privacy, creating the impression of secluded desert retreat.

Mel Houses exterior recently underwent a complete update, creating a true entertainers delight. Enjoy vast stretches of verdant lawn surrounding the front garden and Pebble Tec pool. Bask in the California sun, alternating your gaze between the sparkling water and the lofty San Jacinto Mountains. Seek shelter under the the pergola, with a newly installed outdoor kitchen and barbecue, provides relief from hunger. Ease into the bubbling hot tub on those cool desert nights and feel your worries melt away.

An open plan accentuates the spaciousness of the villa, while raftered ceilings, warm colors and an array of pop art add to its contemporary charm. Create culinary magic on modern appliances in the gourmet kitchen while fellow guests mix cocktails at the wet bar. Take dinner to new heights around the elevated dining table with the mountains visible through French doors. Retire to the central living room and savor an apritif around a roaring fire. A wraparound sofa beckons you into the media room where you can enjoy movies on a state-of-the-art home theater system.

Mel Houses four bedrooms are individually styled with vibrant, yet subtle colors and elegant furnishings. All rooms have well-appointed en-suite bathrooms, featuring premium fixtures and fittings. Three of the bedrooms, including the large Master suite, are found in the main house, while the fourth room is in a casita off the pool. All rooms are air conditioned and open directly out to the terrace, while the casita room has its own living room.

From your location in El Mirador, you can spend quiet mornings strolling the Movie Colony and Ruth Hardy Park neighborhoods, where the classic mid-century modern and Spanish dwellings were once home to Hollywoods elite. Walk or drive to Palm Canyon Drive, where youll find upscale shops, restaurants, galleries and nightlife. Theres no better way to soak in vistas of the Coachella Valley than by teeing off at one of the areas 80 golf courses. Hikers will discover trails of all levels in the surrounding national parks.

Comfortable, well stocked home with excellent management.

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and spacious. We loved that is was so well stocked with everything needed. The managers were the most responsive and helpful of any I have ever worked with. We were a little disappointed that the misters on the patio did not work since they were included in the property description.

Awesome!

Really perfect weekend, and a perfect house. Only thing I'd suggest is to change out the oven... it was a little hard to use.

Outstanding customer service and beatiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mel House for my birthday and it was great! There was one hiccup that was handled brilliantly by Luxury Retreats. The hot tub wasn't working properly. We texted David and he had someone out the next AM to fix the problem. Overall, our experience was amazing and I would recommend this place (and management company) to anyone! Thanks!!

Wonderful 4th of July Vacation With friends

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank David and his team for organizing everything at the house. The set up and house layout was perfect for our group. The kitchen counter size allowed for group prep and we enjoyed the different dining areas of the house.
