California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our beautiful warm bright and inviting mid century desert home is located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in South Palm Desert. We are within walking distance to the famous El Paseo shops and fine dining. We are close to the living desert and over 100 golf courses.

Freshly decorated and furnished with love, our home can accommodate multiple families and has all the amenities at your disposal to ensure a fun and comfortable stay. Our home has a two bedroom guesthouse, with it's own private entrance overlooking the pool area. One bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a twin bed with a pull out trundle bed. There is a comfortable living room with a flat screen TV and the couch in the living room converts to a double bed. There is a small full bathroom and kitchenette ,wonderful for an in-law, lots of house guests or to use as your office space. The main house has 3 large bedrooms. The master suite has a king bed, flat screen TV and full on suite bathroom. The first guest bedroom has a queen bed, the second guest bedroom has a king bed and they share a full bathroom.

There is a large bright galley kitchen with natural light illuminating the work area. The kitchen contains everything you would need to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal for twelve. The gorgeous dining room has soaring ceilings and a wall of glass leading out to the sparkling pool. The dining table has seating for twelve and warm lighting. Beamed ceilings and lots of candles add to the zen atmosphere. The living room is tastefully decorated with comfortable seating, a cool bar area which seats 5-6 people and has a pretty fireplace to cozy up to on the cooler evenings.

There is a bonus room that we like to hang out in to watch movies or play Wii games. After an afternoon of swimming in the salt water pool, relax and watch the sun set behind the mountains or spend an evening having a barbecue at the outdoor kitchen.

Alternately shop and dine on El Paseo, have a bottle of fine wine and stroll home from a wonderful evening-what a way to live!

About The Owner

John and I are originally from England. We moved to Los Angeles in 1983 and since then we have enjoyed coming to the Desert two or three times a year. We love the weather having come from a cold and rainy climate, we never get tired of the sunshine that we are pretty much guaranteed in Palm Desert. John loves to golf so is spoiled for choice with all the fantastic golf courses here and I love shopping, hiking and fine dining so am also spoiled for choice in all aspects.

Palm desert is truly a lovely relaxing getaway and we always appreciate our time there.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose California Desert

We chose to buy in Palm Desert because we have been coming here since our children were babies and before. It is an easy drive for us and always a relaxing time, having fun in the pool, sunbathing, catching up on movies and hanging out in a cool house with friends or extended family.

What makes this house unique

My husband loves to golf at many of the great golf courses nearby and I love to shop along the world famous El Paseo with all it's unique stores, stopping for a coffee or lunch at one of its many great restaurants. My daughters often join me.

Relaxing and well kept house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at this wonderful little Casa. The house is open and clean. There are a ton of amenities. And my personal favorite was the plethora of towels our hosts had left for us. They are so thoughtful.

The pool and grill in the back yard are ideal. Just make sure you aren't too loud because the neighbors are right in your backyard.

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property to celebrate my 50th birthday. We have been vacationing in Palm Desert for the last few years to escape the rainy West Coast winter and have rented a variety of properties. This time I wanted an extra special place to celebrate my birthday with the space to invite a few more friends down.

From the beginning, Noreen was responsive and a pleasure to communicate with; all questions were promptly answered and she held my desired dates until I was able to confirm my plans.

We were all very impressed with this home and its comforts and amenities. It was clean and well kept, and thought was put into making the décor warm and inviting. The common areas are much more spacious than they appear in the photos, lots of room to gather as a group or head off to a quiet area. We spent the majority of our days out on the patio and found the outside bar area and grill very convenient. The salt water pool was a nice touch, very pleasant to not smell or taste chlorine. We are foodies and found the kitchen, along with the outdoor grill, well equipped to prepare meals for our large group. The dining room is a wonderful, large yet cozy, area to gather together for great food and wine. Many hours were spent around this table. We got good use out of the games cupboard and Wii in the evenings. There is a good sound system and a collection of CDs to use.

The bedrooms were all well furnished with comfortable beds and new linens, the only exception being the fold-out couch in the Casita-but its rare to find a decent fold-out so I don't take it as a negative. There were plenty of household/pool towels and pillows.

Grocery stores and shopping are very nearby, El Paseo is about a 10 minute walk. The hiking in Indian Canyon is a great afternoon outing and there are golf courses for all levels. We chose an executive course a few minutes drive from the house to play some non-competitive, inexpensive rounds. We went to the Palm Springs street market on Thursday evening and to the College of the Desert market on the weekend. But honestly, we spent the majority of the time just lounging around enjoying the outdoor and indoor spaces. It was great to just relax, talk and laugh with good friends, and get out of the rain! I would rent this property for a group vacation again without hesitation.

Great property and great host.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was setup well for us, and Noreen was a great host

My notes for future guest :

*I'm not sure if we weren't able to figure out the outdoor heat lamp, or it was out of gas...but we were never able to get it to work during our Winter visit.

*The neighbor directly behind the house is a light sleeper and their bedroom is next to the pool, if you're going to have a pool-side chat after 10PM it WILL wake the neighbor up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. There is a sequence for lighting those heaters but if it was out of propane, we do have an extra tank there to change it out (wish you'd let me know) You are right about our neighbor, she is a lawyer who has to be up very early, so I usually advise guests that we are in a residential area and there cannot be excessive noise outside after 10pm.

Noreen Lamb's home in Palm Desert

  • 5 of 5

The place was pristine with many amenities. The accommodations were so comfortable and enjoyable. We look forward to staying again if the opportunity arises. It was particularly grand to have all 14 of us together for Christmas. The house had Christmas cheer all around. We really enjoyed the UK touch as our German-American family has its roots in The British mother-country. Would not have been surprised to see Her Majesty enjoying morning tea by the pool! The Lambs are superb hosts in every way.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for a getaway - close enough to walk to shopping and restaurants. The pool area was a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and get ready for the day. Noreen was a pleasure to work with and was so very accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Perfect in every way!!!
