What makes this house unique

Surrounded by three stunning mountain ranges and offering year-round sunny skies, Palm Desert is the epitome of relaxed desert living in the Coachella Valley combining high style and natural beauty in perfect harmony.

With nearly 40 golf courses in the city, Palm Desert is a golfer’s dream come true. The area hosts the Skins Game, the Bob Hope Classic and countless other major golf tournaments, as well as world-class tennis. And you won’t want to miss the annual Golf Cart Parade, a 40-year Palm Desert tradition. Palm Desert also is home to The Living Desert zoo and botanical gardens. Largest of Palm Desert’s numerous parks is Civic Center Park, which includes baseball fields, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, a skate park, dog park, tot lot and picnic pavilions. The park also has an amphitheater for outdoor concerts. Other city parks include soccer fields, additional baseball fields and sport courts, open turf areas and much more.

Nature lovers staying in the Dolce will find an outstanding variety of close-to-home destinations for everything from hiking to dirt biking to horseback riding to hot air ballooning! The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway takes visitors from the desert floor up to beautiful Mt. San Jacinto State Park at an elevation of more than 8,500 feet. Joshua Tree National Park is popular for hiking, climbing, mountain biking, four wheeling and camping complemented by sweeping desert vistas. Another favorite is the Coachella Valley Preserve, a 17,000-acre expanse that offers scenic hiking trails surrounded by lush palm groves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an amazing 3.5 week stay in Palm Desert. The weather was unbelieveable and as long as we got an early tee time, we were able to golf every morning before it got too warm. Dolce is a fabulous gated community, and since it only has around 40 homes, it is nice and quiet. The backyard is fantastic so we spent most days around the pool and would bbq at night and enjoy the huge outdoor dining table.

All of the shopping necessities are a stones throw away and there are great retail areas within a really short drive. The property manager was available anytine we needed him (rarely) and we are already trying to get our vacation time approved next year so we can lock in our booking!

Beautiful, sparkling home and pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our tennis group got our air bnb rental canceled 1 month before the BNP tournament for some bogus reason. We had reserved 6 months ahead of time. We had to go further out than we had originally planned. But 10 minutes on the freeway was worth it. Much nicer house , for a little less. Big roomy bedrooms, amazing master. Enormous kitchen gathering area. Resort like back yard with pool, spa and lounge chairs. We all wanted to live here forever!!

Great Rental Home, Walk to Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental and we were pleased to find a home where the photos are accurate and the house is very clean. The kitchen has a huge island, which is a great gathering place and enables many helping hands for preparing meals. The kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked with supplies with extra paper products stored in garage cabinets. All of the beds were comfortable with good linens and towels. The pool is nice and the hot tub is very large, seating 8+ adults. The large granite patio table is a great place for lunch and dinners. This is a great house for a large family and or three couples. There are two ensuite bedrooms and two bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom.

If you like to walk, there are many stores and services within walking distance. The nearest food store (Walmart) is 0.75 miles and there are five to six restaurants and a movie theater within one mile of the house. The Shadow Ridge golf course is one mile from the house. Shadow Ridge is another nice place to walk and has one of the best golf practice facilities in the Coachella Valley where you can practice all day for a nominal fee.

The owner and his local manager are very responsive to any and all questions or concerns. We are planning to rent again next winter.

Terrific Place

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but great things to say about this rental. Beautiful home with 4 bedrooms that were just perfect. One Br is a king with a full bath off the front door and was very private for anyone using it . The 2nd floor MBR was off by itself and had a walk in closet, Jacuzzi tub and more. The other two bedrooms had a full bathroom between them. The beds were all very comfortable. Loads of bedding and towels etc . The kitchen was massive and was well stocked which was a treat . You always hate to have to go buy a lot of basics when you only use a little. Large LR and television which came in handy for the NCAA tournament but was not much used because with the super weather every moment was spent in the amazing yard with a super pool. I have to tell you I have rented many places over the years but I have never seen such a clean pool. A vacuum was working throughout the time the pool was turned on. It is controlled by a timer for the main part of the day. The yard is terrific and had the sun all morning and afternoon. One of our favorite spots was the shaded, fan cooled area outside the patio doors with a marble table that sat 10 people. Great for meals, cards and games.

If this isn’t enough we were very pleased with communication with the owner. Emails were answered quickly and we were treated very well at all times. Our damage deposit was returned promptly.

The area is terrific, walking distance to a Walmart, kohl’s and other stores and restaurants. Costco was a short 5 minute drive. Easy access to Monterrey which is really the center of the entire valley.

I would love to tell you something negative so that it is around for a future rental but there would be no truth in that comment!

Thx for a great stay. J & E and family from Winnipeg
