California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

Remodeled & updated throughout, super location, great floorplan. 1750 SQ FT

The Tamarisk Ranchos, all Mid-Century homes, were developed by Hollywood's greats as their desert playground. The setting is 5+ acres with 16 individual private detached homes surrounding the large central pool. There are lighted path ways and date palms with secure perimeter fencing around the properties, no pool fencing or gated entry to your garage. It's the best of secure settings. There are common areas where you can be sociable if you're in the mood and the house has 2 private patios if you prefer privacy. We added a professionally installed and monitored alarm system for your secure retreat in the desert. All furnishings are less than 2 years new or new and constant upgrades will be happening. 3 bdrms, private master wing, 2 full baths

About Heather

This was hiking in Palm Springs recently (one of our favorite things to do within 10 min driving time from the house). My husband and I are now Oregonians but I was born in So Cal. We've been taking our annual trek to the area for the many years (to dry out from the rain) so when we found this perfect setting, we knew it was the time to buy.

Heather purchased this house in 2012

Why Heather chose California Desert

We researched the past 5 years on where the best location in the desert might be. We were set on a Mid-Century, but location was important as well. When you take into account mountain shadowing, views, wind location, and City maintenance of streets and public places, Rancho Mirage was hands down our choice of choices. It's close to the airport with easy access to highways for accessibility. Its near Soak City if you have young ones with you, the Annenberg Estate if you're a history or Mid-Century buff, and very close to the largest street fair we've ever seen (College of the Desert) both Saturday and Sunday, the Rivers, and of course creme de la creme ~ El Paseo.

What makes this house unique

If you're a Palm Springs lover as are we, it's only 10 min away. However there are so many classic restaurants and hideaways in Rancho Mirage that you need to discover, without the wait lines, crowds, and all they bring. We love the gorgeous flora and fauna (and wildlife), classic serenity, and the many GOLF COURSES that Rancho Mirage provides. It's the perfect getaway.

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is very beautifully decorated and maintained, with all the amenities that made our stay so special and memorable. We spent a lot of time just enjoying the house and pool; but the hiking, shopping and restaurants in the area are certainly worth checking out as well. Just a short drive to downtown Palm Springs which is a lot of fun to explore. The owners took a lot of care to make sure we had everything we needed, and were very helpful in suggesting points of interest. We would most definitely highly recommend this property.

Great Summer getaway to the desert

  • 5 of 5

Great home with great decor. Pool just steps away from the back porch. Everything was well kept, high end appliances, A/C that blew nice and cool, well stocked, comfortable beds, and great furniture. This house was fantastic for our desert getaway! It is located just minutes from Hwy 111, restaraunts, shopping, and the casino. Great pation to sit back on and watch the beautiful desert sun set. Great home, great location, couldn't ask for more!

Car: recommended

Rancho Mirage is quietly nestled between Palm Springs and El Paseo, both shopping and food meccas. The location is out of the wind tunnel that PS experiences, with extraordinary mountain views (but located far enough away from them that your days are not shortened). Rancho Mirage has all the super stores but they are in compact malls set away from sight and sound from the homes (great City planning). The Rivers, Palm Springs, and El Paseo so close but you're not in the traffic daily unless you want to be. Rancho Mirage is surrounded with green golf courses, lovely street plantings, and tall date palms all with the stunning back drop of the mountains. It's the ideal Desert Location for your desert get-away. Email us with your inquiry:
