Casa Sonora Grande K0063 - Palm Springs - Casa Sonora Grande is perfectly tucked away in a peaceful cul-de-sac, this professionally furnished, private luxury home sits between spectacular views of the San Jacinto Mountains to the west and vast vistas of the local lagoon and golf course to the East.
The house has been designed to be the perfect place for peace and quiet. Each bedroom has been purposefully placed at separate corners of the home to give each guest their own private sanctuary.
The property overlooks the 8th hole of the Ted Robinson designed and Arnold Palmer managed Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort - the course's signature hole. Golf Digest recently rated Tahquitz Creek as “One of the Best Places to Play”. While the house sits on the fairway with easy access directly onto the course, the lush tropical landscaping affords maximum privacy.
There are 5 bedrooms plus a fully enclosed den (with doors) that can be used as a workspace or as a 6th bedroom with a full-size pull out sofa. The property includes a separate semi-detached Casita with full ensuite bath – perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in the tranquil Palm Springs lifestyle.
The total bed count: King, King, King, Queen, Queen, Twin, Twin, Twin over Full, Twin over Full, Full Pull-Out Sofa (As an option, the two twin beds can be converted into a King.)
Unique to the property is a second “Casita-Style” bedroom with a California King bed and two twin bunks over full size beds. French doors open to a quiet citrus garden and giant chess set, as well as nearby access to the main house and bathroom. The oversized chess board and chess pieces add a bit of fun and whimsy -- you’ll think you’ve walked into a something from “Alice in Wonderland.” This room is ideal for families that want to stay together, for kids as a bunk room, or for a private couple getaway.
Each bedroom is equipped with televisions and DVD players (7 total). There are 4 full baths including the master bath with an oversized tub - a perfect retreat at days’ end. A spacious, grand gourmet cook’s kitchen is at the center of the home – keeping the family chef at the heart of all the action. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and cookware - with endless upgrades. Meals can be served in the formal dining room, at the kitchen table, at the counter, or at the outdoor dining tables.
There are plenty of places to lounge and relax. Indoors, the Great Room is equipped with a premium sound system, 65” HDTV with DVD player, and a gas-powered fireplace. Outside, you'll have to make a tough choice between three locations:
• The Golf Course Lounge - take a seat around the campfire as you look over the golf course.
• The Lanai Living Room - take a breather under the ceiling fan as you gaze out over the pool.
• The Courtyard - gather around the fireplace as you relax in this secluded citrus courtyard.
You can also take refuge in the salt water pool, as two fountains gently flow into the water as you relax in the beautiful pebble-tec saltwater oasis. Step into the spa surrounded by natural desert landscaping for seclusion in style. Relax under the umbrella near the tanning shelf to keep an eye on the kids. If you're in the mood for the other kind of pool, set up a game of billiards inside.
Other features include … high-speed wireless internet, grand 15ft entry ceiling and 10’-12’ ceilings throughout, 8' solid wood doors, enclosed garage, 27 citrus trees, full security system with monitored alarm, personal security safe in each bedroom, HBO, Showtime and other premium channels, hammock, lounge chairs, board games, backyard putting green, second refrigerator-freezer, instantaneous tankless water heater, built-in gas BBQ and accessories, central air conditioning and heat, washer and dryer, pool flotations, auxiliary folding tables and chairs, built-in two desk office, state-of-the-art sound system with adjustable speakers throughout the home.

Stayed here with our big family in May. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us with room to spread out. It was clean and very well stocked. The mountain, lake and golf course views were beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
Although the weather was quite warm (hot) and there was a dust storm (first time in 40 years) the home became our home for the week. There was room for everyone to spread out and enjoy. The pool and outside features (although warm) was a place for all of us to come together. I would highly recommend this sight to others that would like to bring their family together.
This is a really beautiful home with something for all ages, from young children to grandparents. It was very clean, well appointed and fresh feeling. With 6 bedrooms there was a lot of space to spread out. The house looked just like the pictures. The views are pretty incredible. The front of the house faces these spectacular mountains and from the back of the house there is a breathtaking view of a lake and rolling hills on the golf course. It was a very special vacation for us.
Everyone was smiling when we checked in at the Oranj Palm rental office. We got VIP treatment from the start. They were EXCELLENT explaining everything and were easy to reach when we had a question. (We had a problem opening one of the bedroom safes during our stay. They were right there to help us.) This house has everything you would expect at a five-star luxury resort. When my son walked into the house he said, “Wow, this is how really rich people live.” Everything worked perfectly and looked brand new. By far the cleanest and most elegant house we’ve ever rented. We’ve stayed at a lot vacation rentals over the years and we’ve rented our share of houses where the owners leave clutter, knick-knacks, family photos and tons of personal junk around the house. (One house we rented actually had a huge family portrait hanging above the fireplace. It was like this family was watching everything we did.) So it was great to stay in a home that was bright, modern, stylish AND refined. The weather was perfect (85 degrees and sunny EVERYDAY in FEBRUARY! That's a big deal when you've come from the cold mid-west in winter!) so we spent most of our time outside. The house overlooks a lake and golf course, so we spent the days lounging by the pool with a drink in hand watching golfers in the distance. The mountain views from the front of the house were also stunning -- much better than the pictures. Loved the 3 fireplaces at night. 2 refrigerators were a big plus. HDTVs everywhere with a million channels. Also the internet was really fast. The layout of the house was FANTASTIC. Bedrooms galore and plenty of room to spread out. We’ve already told all our friends how much we loved our stay. I would HIGHLY recommend this rental for any large family or group that wants privacy, space, style and are in need of a special getaway. It has it all!
This is the second time we’ve rented this house. This time it was for a 3 day golf trip. We’re 10 big guys and everyone got their own bed. All the guys loved the house. It gets an A+ from me.
This is really an amazing estate. I am in charge of planning our family reunion each year for our six families. This is by far the best place we’ve ever rented. There’s a wide age range in our family from infants to our senior parents. This was the first year that everyone was happy. First off, the place was really clean and elegant. It felt like a brand-new model home. It was stocked with everything you would possibly need. The pictures on the website are accurate and the place is even more dramatic and beautiful in person.
Being the designated “vacation coordinator” of the family, I’m the one that gets a complaint from someone in the family about this or that. Not this year. The place had something for everyone. Someone was always playing pool, out by one of the fireplaces, in the pool or spa or just hanging out is one the many, many gathering spaces in the house.
A special feature that we didn’t expect were the two separate casitas. We put my parents in one and all the kids in the other. And there were 4 more large bedrooms for all the grown-ups! The one casita was actually so big it had beds for 8 kids! They loved it! There’s a lot to do in Palm Springs, but no one wanted to leave the house. Would rent the place again in a second. The house made it an extra special family gathering.
