The house has been remodeled from top to bottom. It features 2 Master Suites – the first Master has a king size bed and custom shutters also a very large 50” flat screen embedded in the wall with 5.0 surround sound - theater quality. The bathroom is all new (his and hers) Kohler sinks and custom faucets, frame-less shower, large jetted Jacuzzi tub. Private toilet. Did I forgot to mention the suspended flat screen TV and manual wall volume control for the speakers above?

The second master offers a king size bed and another flat screen TV that swivels 270 degrees so you can enjoy your favorite program while in bed, or in your private office overlooking the grounds. This suite includes 2 custom ceiling fans. (his and hers) sinks, bathtub/shower and a private toilet. Also 2 French doors for your private entrance to the saltwater pool and grounds.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It was perfect for our family. The kitchen has everything you would need. The pool table and game room were a hit with our teenage grandkids. Kimberly was wonderful to work with and responded to all my questions very promptly.

Great House for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay at resorts for our annual family reunion but this was the first time renting a house...and a good choice it was. The house is large enough for 10 people plus two small children. The two master bedrooms were very large and the other rooms spacious. The pool area was great with 6 lounge chairs and a large umbrella. The pool table was fun and we were able to get the sound system working throughout the house and pool area. The game room is not air conditioned but the younger adults enjoyed it. The house is walking distance from "The River" so we had nightly ice cream trips.

Overall, we all enjoyed the house and would return again.

Great bachelor weekend - wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Spent this past weekend at the property with a group of close friends to celebrate my bachelor party. Not much to say other than everything was PERFECT. House was great for all of us and fit 10 guys easily with lounging room, bathrooms and all beds equipped and comfortable. We spent most of the time outdoor by the pool and jacuzii, both were great and exactly as advertised. Great sun during the day and afternoon, garden was beautiful and well maintained with a nice orange tree! Game room was fine, a little old and some of the stuff didn't work but we were busy with the pool and outdoor area. Pool table is perfect condition and foosball table all good. Property manager was great, responsive and helpful. Everyone loved their trip and the location, would definitely consider coming back for a future family trip or weekend getaway. Location was quiet and close to rancho mirage outdoor mall area. Everything top notch!

Beautiful, very well-equipped home - but with entry problems

  • 4 of 5

Everything was terrific - except for problems with the entry. We are 3 families (us, our two sons and their families).For a home that "sleeps" this many people, we should have gotten 3 keys - but only received one small key that we had to pass from family to family. To do so required us setting up locations to meet so that one of the families could get the key when they needed to return to the house.

Moreover, the key was so small that it kept on getting lost! That was a constant annoyance.

Moreover, the lock box took almost 15 minutes to open! (Fortunately, we don't give up easily.) These frustrations marred what otherwise would have been a perfect stay.

Owner's Response: I’m pleased that you enjoyed my property, however with regard to the key, I don't understand why your friends & family’s didn't use the (outside) key lockbox like all of our other guests do? Hence the purpose of the key lockbox - the exact same one you used to originally to open the property. This is typically a 30 second procedure. Now w/ regard to the actual key size, - the Key in question is from a Schlage Single Cylinder Satin Nickel Deadbolt with Camelot Trim - Model# B60 N CAM 619. The actual Key size matches the U.S. and Canada standard of (2 1/8") or (54 mm). I personally confirmed these dimensions.

This property is located in the heart of it all. Just minutes away from shopping, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, day activities, and night-life, Rancho Mirage provides all the perfect activities to make your vacation second to none. Some favorites include bike tours over the geological formation of the San Andreas Fault, trying out Lady Luck at the Agua Caliente Casino, turning back time at the Children's Discovery Museum, brushing up on your golf swing at one of the hundreds of Country Clubs, or fading away to the lull of a deep-tissue massage at one of the near-by day spas. There is endless fun to be had if you can peel yourself away from the comforts and luxuries of this second-to-none vacation rental.
