Spring break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house in Rancho Mirage . The backyard was our favorite spot.....a true oasis. We especially loved swinging in the hammock with our grandson. I'd highly recommend this property. Comfy beds, comfy sheets, nice bath towels and EVERYTHING you'd need in the kitchen. The owners were great and easy to work with. They had a bottle of champagne waiting for us and movie candy and popcorn for us in the theatre room. What are you waiting for?....

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at a lot of houses in the desert, this so far is the nicest and most accommodating

The house literally has everything that you would need, outdoor music, indoor surroundsound in multiple locations for movies .

The backyard is perfect, there's a lot of foliage in the backyard so it gets a lot of shade so you're not blazing in the sun all day .

The misters were perfect to sit outside.

There's no fencing from the backyard to the front yard but the whole property is sealed with gates so my dogs I didn't have to worry about .

I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about this house .

If you like to hang out in the desert with music in a beautiful house with a beautiful backyard, this is the place.

I would also like to mention the barbecue, one side of the barbecue was infrared so if you like a steak on the barbecue like they cook in a fancy restaurant it was top-notch .

To top off the trap the homeowners were very helpful and accommodating .

We definitely will return if they'll have us.

I also enjoyed the steam room with the eucalyptus oil .

Beautiful estate

  • 5 of 5

Where to start - upon opening the front door, you have to sit down and take it all in. The living area is beautiful. So many details, pillows, art work, lovely fireplace and what a view thru the arched window directly to the resort style pool and outdoor living area. We spent most of our time at the outdoor bar under the misters. Lots of pool toys and comfy outdoor furniture. The bedrooms were very private with soft beds and wonderful sheets. Lots of media areas with sink in leather sofas. The back yard is fenced which was great for our weimaraner. It is nice to have a garage available. The pool was the perfect temperature and the sunning shelf is a great idea. We spent hours in the pool. I would definitely recommend Villa Marcella to the most discerning travelers.

Oh, how can I forget the chef's kitchen. It almost makes cooking fun.

Celebrating life and Masters from USC, best Villa ever! Can't go wrong with Tom and Leslie!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is amazing!!!!!! From the gorgeous decor to the views of the desert, we were completely blown away. The location is perfect super close to market and the shopping centers. My group loved the surround sound, BBQ area, the steam room, and the gorgeous pool /jacuzzi. Tom and Leslie's hospitality was beyond what we expected. They were so helpful with any questions we had during our stay and made us feel like family. If your looking for a villa to stay at this is your place, worth every penny! We are most definitely looking to come back.

Thank you Tom and Leslie again for everything 🙏?🏽? I am so thankful for you allowing me to complete this promise to My Andrés. May god continue to bless you.

Beautiful vacation retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot wait to rent this beautiful Villa again! It is actually better than the pictures. We had the family there for a long weekend, and could've used more days. There is a game room, media room with a sunken bar. Such a fun and loving place, and so well appointed! The owners have not spared anything. It is as if you were in a 5 star hotel!!!! We spent most of our time in the pool and backyard!!! Plus, the owners are amazing and so helpful. Thank you, Tom and Leslie!
