About the property

4,500 Square Feet, Breathtaking Views Of Mountains, Desert, Stars & Night Lights

The house is set up ideally for large gatherings, reunions, weddings. Though we have had couples stay here on their own who felt it was perfect.

Layout consists of one large great room that is the core of the house. A true gathering spot with several seating areas and a wall of glass overlooking the grandeur of the American Desert West - with the Santa Rosa Mountains, San Gabriel Mountains and Mount San Jacinto serving as a backdrop.

Five bathrooms total with three master suites. All the masters have king or queen size beds. The largest master also has a sectional coach that contains a queen-size mattress pull-out. The other masters have seating areas and televisions. There is a "non-working" harpsichord in one of the suites and a "working" grand piano in another of the suites. The other two bedrooms are on the more average size. One is an office with an extra twin bed. The fifth bedroom is a very comfortable room with two single (twin) mattresses. These two rooms share a bath directly across the hall from them. The house sleeps 11 maximum.

The entire home is gorgeously furnished with a fabulous art collection. The kitchen is a dream - part of the great room and the action but in it's own area. Completely outfitted to cook, complete multiple sets of dishes, serving dishes and gorgeous glass and stemware.

There is a covered marble terrace/walk around the back and side of the house. A fire pit is on one of the terraces and a picnic table and bench is built around an olive tree on another of the terraces.

We are newly listed on this site but have operated on the Airbnb site for a couple of years. Check out the hundreds of reviews there. We are called "Butler's Living Desert Home" in Desert Hot Springs, CA.

Don't miss a chance to stay in this unique home and place.

About Steve Gold

I have lived in many parts of the US, as well as abroad. I know how important it is to feel truly welcomed, and in sharing my home, I would like each and every guest to feel that they belong in this truly sanctuarial space.

Steve Gold purchased this house in 2008

Why Steve Gold chose Desert Hot Springs

I purchased this home in 2008 as a truly distressed bank foreclosure. Though things looked very sad for the home at first, I saw in it the potential to be a truly wonderful, sanctuarial space. Though it took over three years to finish, I feel the results have been truly worth it. Nearly everyone that stays at my home comments that they feel a certain vibe there -- a very classy, sophisticated, welcoming space where they can feel free to truly relax. Many have said that they have never slept so well away from home -- not even in a five-star hotel.

I am fairly new to HomeAway, but there are almost 400 reviews from other guests about my home, both as a whole-house and individual room rental. Check out the competing bed and breakfast site and search for homes in the Desert Hot Springs area.

What makes this house unique

Marvelous majestic mountain views

A great place space outside with a fire pit, to watch the stars

The home oozes peace and tranquility

Excellent isolation from room to room. Everyone can peacefully co-exist!

Quiet and Cozy home

  • 5 of 5

This property was great. We had plenty of room and there was lots of parking around as we had multiple vehicles. The house was nice and had everything in it you could want. The larger rooms were spacious. The smaller rooms were a good size too. The only thing we didn't like were the showers because they were all the walk in open showers which makes it a bit cold taking a shower and gets the floors quite wet. Overall it was a great place! and enjoy sitting out by the fire bit and enjoying the view!

Perfect for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

There were nine of us who fled from Quebec in order to assist to my daughter's wedding in the Mojave desert. We rented this beautiful house for six days. The house itself is elegant and has everything one can ask for living with a group. The four/ five bedrooms are located each side of the central area which allows intimacy. The central part includes the kitchen, dining room, living room and a bar. It is very spacious, well decorated and equipped ( we baked the wedding cake in that kitchen!). Everyone could find their perfect spot that included a stunning view of the mountains.

Finally, let's add that the owner, Steve Gold has been very prompt prior or during the stay to answer any of our questions.

This makes this rental a 5 stars ! We would return in a heart beat.

Good family place.

  • 3 of 5

House was good for a large family gathering. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes, silverware, etc. Mountain view is magnificent. We missed having a working television in the house and a cable connection. Also a pool would have been nice.

Perfect vacation w/ friends in a beautiful home with a breathtaking view and a well equipped kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly grateful for such amazing accommodations. I would come back to this home in a heartbeat. The location was excellent: close proximity to Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs. The house itself was fantastic: our large group of 11 was very comfortable. The view and lounge areas lend themselves nicely to relaxing with company. The kitchen was a major highlight: it has just about everything imaginable, and it was a real treat to be able to cook meals together, eat at the round table, and stargaze at night.

Many thanks Steve Gold for sharing this gem with us.
