Six (6) bedrooms sleep 12 adults (plus 2 small children on a pull-out sofabed) with 5 bathrooms. Four Bedrooms are in the main house with the other 2 bedrooms in two large detached casitas. With all that privacy, you have the perfect house for a multi-generational family holiday. All five King beds, the Queen bed and the Queen sleeper sofa are fitted with pillow-top mattresses and luxury Trina Turk linens. You have a large flat screen television and HD box in every bedroom as well as the Family Room, Living Room, and exercise room (9 TVs in total)! With a gorgeous pool, hot-tub, Tournament-quality pool table, outdoor ping-pong, foosball, x-box, and club-quality exercise equipment, there is always something to keep you and your guests entertained. You will never hear 'we're bored' from your children at Twin Palms.

The huge south-facing backyard has a 30x15 foot heated salt-water pool and spa/hot-tub. We provide 12 cushioned loungers and 4 pool floats so that there is room for everybody around the pool. With 4 stainless steel commercial grade shade umbrellas and California misters around the pool, the backyard is completely enjoyable for everybody even in the hottest heat of the summer! The California misters cool the temperature by 20 degrees! Just imagine yourself relaxing in the sun around the pool, and taking in the mountain views while listening to your favorite music on the Sonos sound system. Don't forget your ipod - just plug it in and have your playlist piped throughout both the house and the backyard. We just installed a gorgeous Restoration Hardware natural gas firepit with plenty of deep-seating for taking in the mountain views or staring up at the stars!

The large Weber stainless grill and fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to have a wonderful family meal. You can dine in the outdoor dining courtyard under the stars with beautiful amber lighting, lush plantings and music from our 5-zone Sonos sound system. All of these amenities make Twin Palms the perfect home for an extended family get-away.

In the winter, you can enjoy a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice every morning directly from our delicious Citrus Grove! If you're visiting in the early spring, the beautiful fragrance of the orange blossoms from our citrus grove or the sweet smell of Sweet Acacia alone is worth the trip! The Citrus grove is situated close to the outdoor dining area so that you can enjoy the fragrance for hours over dinner in the heated dining courtyard.

RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT

We accept reservations through VRBO on-line. In order to reserve, we require 50% of the total cost of the reservation along with receipt of a completed and signed rental agreement. We are not able to hold any reservations pending receipt of funds or the contract as our properties book up very rapidly. Please be advised that VRBO processes payments through Europe and as a result, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT

Please be advised that our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals book up rapidly and are most often booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our properties take approximately 5 hours to clean, and to wash, dry iron and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check in time is 5:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. We are rarely able to offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time due to the cleaning requirements. Therefore, if you wish to check-in prior to 5pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to do so is to book the property for the prior night (assuming the property is available on that day) and then you can check in at any time after 5pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well (assuming it's available) and then you can check-out at your leisure prior to 11am the following day.

Twin Palms is subject to the Palm Desert Short Term Rental Rules. Rental Licence #33112. Please be advised that parties and excessive noise are strictly prohibited at Twin Palms El Paseo Estate. We expect our renters to treat the property and the neighbors with the utmost respect.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Our Cancellation Policy is in essence as follows: if a guest cancels, we will refund up to 90% of the amount paid to date if we secure a replacement reservation. Given our high occupancy rates, we have provided significant refunds to the few guests who have had to cancel. Guests can also purchase separate cancellation insurance through VRBO directly. See our Rental Contract for the complete Cancellation Policy.

We have 6 Holiday Home Rentals that we own and operate ourselves. 5 are in Palm Desert, all within walking distance to El Paseo with large pools, spas and mountain views.

We had a wonderful time

Property and furnishings needs some updating... a new dishwasher and garbage pail in the kitchen would also be nice...the physical space and location served our family well and we would definitely return!

Perfect Desert Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house because it felt more like a resort. We were a group of 5 couples celebrating a 40th birthday. We flew down from Seattle for some desert sun and golfing. We left our kids behind so we could truly unwind! The house blew us away. It felt like our own private resort. We used 5 of the 6 bedrooms. Everyone had space of their own and the living spaces were spectacular.

POOL/GROUNDS - the pool was beautiful, the 12 lawn chairs assured a spot for everyone. The bean bag pool floats were our favorite. The misters were appreciated as we had 100 degree weather. The hot tub was great. They also had many umbrellas for shade. The palm trees, grass, flowers were all perfect. The lighting at night made this place special. The modern fire pit and large couches were fun for nighttime. To walk around outside at this house was nothing short of stunning, day or night. The outside eating area was huge, private and beautifully lit! The ping pong table was used every day by the husbands!! There is so much room here, the lot is huge. We were 10 adults who never felt cramped. I wish I was still there!

KITCHEN - the kitchen had everything you could ever need and then some. The bar off the kitchen added extra room for beer and alcohol. The kitchen was easy and well stocked. We had groceries delivered from Von's the first night we got there.

LIVING SPACES - The living rooms all had huge couches, TV's and games. The pool table was great next to the bar. The bar had an ice machine, greatly appreciated! The dining room had the longest table I have ever seen.

BEDROOMS - every bedroom had comfortable beds, beautiful art, big bathrooms, TV's and lots of space! The large casita was amazing. The cable service was great and lots of college and pro football was watched.

We were so happy here. We especially loved the sonos sound system, the resort like setting, the firepit, the bean bag floaties, the abundance of space and the hot desert sun. We will definitely be back. This is the perfect house in the desert for large groups!

ANOTHER GREAT 4TH OF JULY FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5

HAVE RETURNED TO THIS PROPERTY 3 YRS. IN A ROW. IT IS IN GREAT CONDITION, BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED, AND HAS MANY WONDERFUL FEATURES. THERE ARE AT LEAST A DOZEN LOUNGES SURROUNDING THE POOL WITH PLENTY OF UMBRELLAS AND MISTERS TO HELP WHEN THE SUN IS INTENSE. INSIDE, THERE IS A HUGE TABLE THAT ACCOMMODATES AT LEAST 15 PEOPLE. THERE ARE ENOUGH DISHES AND GLASSES FOR ALL. THEY HAVE A COMPLETE SET OF PLASTIC DISHES/GLASSES FOR POOLSIDE, AND THE SAME FOR INSIDE MADE OF CHINA. THIS YEAR WE NOTED NEW HUGE BOWLS AND PLATTERS FOR LARGE SALADS AND TRAYS OF RIBS!!! NICE LOCATION TOO. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES WITH THE CASITAS AND THE WAY THE HOUSE IS DESIGNED.

KIDS CAN BE IN A QUIET PLACE AWAY FROM THE POOL DURING NAP TIME. A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL

The property is breathtaking from the moment you step into the front door.

  • 5 of 5

My (now) wife and I were married the weekend that we stayed at this property. What a fantastic way to spend our wedding week/weekend with friends and family. The ample entertaining space and options allowed us to have our rehearsal dinner at the house on Friday, Saturday wedding preparation, and post-wedding BBQ on Sunday.

Our out-of-town guests absolutely loved the place, and our local guests enjoyed popping by for visits on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The two of us, specifically, enjoyed the large casita, for it allowed us to have time with friends and family during our special weekend yet still have our newlywed privacy.

Joe, Tracey, and Craig were awesome the entire trip. We didn't have many needs once we were settled; but they were always prompt and friendly in response to our requests and questions.

We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone. There's not one negative to say about it at all. The only thing I would add is that the pictures lie: the place is much bigger and more amazing in person!!!
