About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Serene home surrounded by stunning mountains. Unwind is this quiet section of Indian Wells nestled near Indian Wells CC and the mountains. Remodeled in 2016, our home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths stylishly appointed with new furnishings, new paint and new carpet. Our home is located within 10 minutes drive of these popular destinations: Indian Wells Tennis Garden, El Paseo Shopping District, The River, La Quinta Old Town and Westfield Shopping Mall Palm Desert. We are just a few minutes south of the Indian Wells Golf Resort which has a 50,000 square foot clubhouse open to the public, two Championship Golf Courses (the Celebrity Course was home to the 2007 Skins Game and Big Break Indian Wells), the Spas at the Hyatt Grand Champions, Renaissance Esmeralda and the Miramonte.

Our house offers an open floor plan that has a comfortable combined living room, dining room and family room that is contemporarily decorated and features a 47” flat screen TV with an Xbox 360 (COD: Modern Warfare 3 program) that serves as a DVD player as well. We also have Netflix Streaming DVD service, DVR and a premium cable package. Our Wifi (secure and unsecured) has range to all rooms of the house and to all seating areas in the backyard.

We gutted and expanded the kitchen in Aug. '16, installing all new appliances, cabinets, countertops and flooring.

The Master Bedroom has a California King and 32” flat screen TV, iHome, mirrored closet doors and access to the backyard via large sliding doors. It is large and bright. Remodeled master bathroom has frosted glass shower enclosure. One of the bedrooms features two extra long twin beds and is perfect for siblings and the other bedroom has a queen bed which can serve as a second master bedroom for couples wishing to share the rental. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with tub/shower, as well as benefit from the sink and toilet in the close by remodeled Powder Room. The kitchen is fully stocked for preparing any meal and it's large island is perfect for gathering or mixing drinks.

In 2014 we added a mid-century modern front door and all new frosted glass interior doors. Also a new office area and desk.

As of Oct. 2013, the large, private backyard features a newly resurfaced and tiled heated swimming pool (14’x32’), and built-in gas BBQ with outdoor fridge. Six lounge chairs including four Frontgate Balencia chaises. Covered cabana area with a large couch, ottoman and love seat sectional (these can all be put together to form a large day bed, comfortable for two people to take a leisurely afternoon nap). A picturesque slope at the rear of the property provides visual appeal: beautiful, mature shade trees; a natural rock formation; and the mountain scene directly to the south. There is a large grassy area providing shade and with room for lounge chairs or throwing down a blanket and enjoying the tranquility. The very private backyard has 6’ fences on either side, so no need to fret if you forgot to pack your bathing suit.

Why pay $300+ a night at resorts in Indian Wells and La Quinta when you can have a private retreat with your own kitchen for much less? Save your money…play golf…treat yourself to a massage!

Tranquility in the Sun.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time in this very private getaway. The new kitchen was wonderful and the backyard was just what we wanted. We also loved the proximity to Indian Wells golf resort. It has a beautiful golf course and is a great place to eat.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was clean, well stocked and tastefully decorated. The backyard was a lovely oasis to return to after a morning/day of hiking. The area is very nice and quiet. The cruiser bikes provided were a great way to tour the neighbourhood and we also used them to cycle to the tennis stadium to take in some matches during the BNP tournament.

Beautiful backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned back home from 2 weeks away at Mary Pat's vacation home. My wife and 2 daughters and my wife's parents had a blast. The kids loved the pool and the morning and afternoon suntanning were a main part of our trip. It is close to amazing golf courses all within 15-20 minutes too. We enjoyed the use of the bikes, went for runs, and enjoyed all that Indian Wells had to offer. Friendly neighbourhood and quiet. We would recommend anyone staying here. There was more than enough room for the 6 of us. Thanks again Mary Pat!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great home, fantastic back yard. We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at this home. We felt like it was a home (not just a rental) from the moment we stepped in. We spent most of our time in the backyard in or by the pool or grilling supper on the BBQ. Always a sunny or shady spot to be found until late afternoon. We would like to return for a month on our next visit as two weeks flew by so quickly.
