About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Rancho Mirage is known for it's mountain views and the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on this condo provide spectacular vistas It's one of the features that sets the condo apart and allows for an unbeatable opportunity to take in the 180 degree view of the ever changing colors that frame the mountain peaks at sunrise and sunset.

Natural light fills this elegant and simply designed nearly 2000 sf mid-century condo. Eleven foot ceilings in the living areas provide an open feeling. Furnishings were chosen to complement the space with an aim to be authentic to the period. Kitchen and bathrooms are updated for 21st Century tastes . The look and feel of the condo is tasteful and comfortable.

There's an interior atrium with a screened roof. It's perfect for dining out in the evenings or relaxing privately during the day. It's easily accessed from the master bedroom or dining area.

Both bedrooms have ensuite full bathrooms and walk in closets. The Master Bedroom looks out on the interior atrium. The guest bedroom has a view of the mountains. Bedrooms are located off a central entrance with one off to the right and the other to left providing ample privacy.

The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Cabinets are well stocked with dinnerware and glassware. If you're planning to cook, you'll find everything you need from Cuisinart pots and pans to an array of small appliances.

A large swimming pool is just beyond the front patio. You can relax at the pool or curl up with a good book on the private patio area just out side the living room. The patio is also a great spot to enjoy and early morning cup of coffee.

The condo has a private garage that is shared with the neighboring unit. There's also ample outdoor parking spots.

Tamarisk West was built in 1963 by first class architects working in the desert. The condo is one of 22 units in this low density community which features two large swimming pools so there's never a crowd.

If you enjoy golf, there are enough public courses to keep you busy all season and many are no more than a 10 minute drive away. Nearby grocery shopping ranges from high end Bristol Farms and Whole Foods to everyday stores like Vons and don’t forget to try Trader Joe’s --there are 2 nearby. Costco is a ten minute drive.

Whether you’re in the mood to check the latest fashions at Saks or find out what’s new at the Apple Store, make sure to take a stroll down El Paseo. Sports, shopping or just relaxing all are a short drive away.

About Beverly Weinstein

We live in NYC and fell in love with the desert on our first visit years ago. You can't beat the light, the air and the overall ambience. We are modern furniture collectors and when we saw Tamarisk West we knew we wanted to own something there. We have tried to stay faithful to the period and consider this a work in progress.

Beverly Weinstein purchased this condo in 2011

Why Beverly Weinstein chose Rancho Mirage

Our condo is one of 22 built around a figure 8 with two pools in the middle. It has a intimate feel and there isn't a bad view. The landscaping is lush and citrus fruit trees are abundant--there's an orange, kumquat, and grapefruit tree right outside the rear patio door. The architecture looks like Krisel but has never been authenticated.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the condo is one of the best in the complex---it's a full 180 degrees. Honestly you could spend the day just looking out the front patio doors at the mountains. The condo has a spacious feel with high ceilings in the living/dining area. The closet space is abundant. The condo is designed so that the two bedrooms are very separate and afford maximum privace.

A fine 2-month stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed spending two winter months at this attractive property. We concur with the positive comments in other reviews. The condo owner was always pleasant to work with. She promptly addressed our initial inquiry and efficiently interacted with us during and after the rental. Among the pluses of this condo are the expansive and inspiring westward mountain view, a good floor plan, friendly neighbors, and convenient parking. Among the pluses of the Tamarisk West complex are its quiet residential atmosphere, well maintained grounds, and beautiful swimming pools/spa. If we were considering another seasonal Coachella Valley rental, this property would be high on our list.

Charming and Excellently Appointed

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month in Rancho Mirage because of the attention to detail and responsive owners. The home is retro and feels open. The covered patio was perfect for dining in the evening. We once had a dinner for 10 people with no problem. Beverly is attentive and responded immediately to questions concerning cable usage and other incidentals. I felt she trusted us, showed respect and was confident we would keep her property in tip-top shape. Any time we contacted her, she was positive and helpful and her follow through was outstanding. It is a great area, and the view cannot be surpassed.

West Coast family visitors and geriatric golfers

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at this mid-century classic unit. Views of close-up desert foothills are great, all day long. Gated common pool areas (two, and 1 heated, with a jacuzzi) are ideal for little grandkids and the supervising adults. Comfortably sleeps 2 in 1 BR and 4 in another BR. Good flow, good garage parking and central in the Coachella Valley. Close to good walking trails and a good public library. Owner is highly positively responsive to any glitches.

Authentic Mid-Century Modern

  • 5 of 5

A light and bright condo with outstanding views of nearby mountains, mid-way between Palm Springs for the International Film Festival and Palm Desert for The River and El Paseo.. We spent a wonderful month enjoying the weather and many activities. Two pools plus a hot tub. Sunnylands, the Annenberg Estate, is close by. The owner, Bev, could not have been more helpful answering questions during our stay.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A beauifully decorated house with great views of the mountains and designed around a large screened in courtyard. The courtyard was great for barbequeing with friends. The designs in the house reminded me of being in Palm Springs during the 1960s. Its built in an upscale community with 2 pools and several tennis courts.

I found a couple hiking trails within walking distance. Its located in between Indian Wells and Palm Springs with many golf courses and shopping centers only a short drive away. Even though I was here in the middle of the summer I had a great time.

Amazing place for a get away!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a trip here in November and had a spectacular time! The mid century modern architecture with floor to ceiling windows allows you to fully enjoy the beauty of the dessert with spectacular mount vistas and palm trees in the vista. The pool and hot tub are a great way to rest, relax and get a way from it all. The house is impeccably decorated with great mid century modern furniture, art and pottery...if you wish your life looked and felt a little more like Mad Men this is the place for you! We couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy the dessert in. We will definitely be returning!

Rancho Mirage is one of the most beautiful areas in Palm Springs. It combines private residences with exclusive golf courses and condo communities. It's convenient to Palm Desert Shopping areas that range from all the 'Big Box' stores to exclusive shops on El Paseo. There are plenty of nearby grocery stores--Pavilion's, Bristol Farms and Von's as well as more restaurants than you will have time to try. And of course, Trader Joe's.
