In 2013, the home was fully refurbished including new carpet; paint; softgoods in all bedrooms; pool tile and deck and all mechanical. It is designed to be enjoyed by a

There is a detached casita that offers additional privacy and includes a queen size bed and private bath.

All bedrooms feature high quality bedding; new furniture; ceiling fans; color TVs and their own bathrooms*(*with the exception of the office/bedroom combination). The house and grounds feature wireless internet service and includes a high speed DSL computer with printer and fax machine available for

use. The large laundry room features a full size washer and dryer, ironing board and supplies. There are ample linens and towels for you to use during your stay.

The house is fully air conditioned with two independent systems. Ceiling fans are located in every room, providing a perfect balance to the temperature both inside and out. The outdoor area is an entertainer's delight with a large built-in bar/barbecue island; outdoor living room arrangement situated in a covered patio; al fresco dining for 6; lounge furniture around the

pool; pool floats and toys; and a fire ring. Full length outdoor drapes provide additional protection from the sun, wind or chill - whatever your need might be.

The full size, salt water pool and jacuzzi, with high impact night lighting provides the perfect setting to enjoy the mountain views and surroundings. The gardens have been professionally landscaped and

About Owner/Property Manager

This is our second private residence in the desert. Before, we had a 3 bedroom condo in Desert Falls Country Club. With the arrival of our grandchikldren, we wanted a larger family home where we could all be together. 10 years and 4 granddaughters later, we remain delighted with our decision.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2002

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Rancho Mirage

This location is amazing! After maintaining a vacation home in this area for 10 years, we were clear where we wanted to be. This was a new development at the time we were looking and it was perfect in every way. Great location, value and neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We are located in the middle of the desert communities with every service and convenience close by. We can walk to Starbucks, Albertsons, the cleaners and the nail shop. Nothing is better than walking to Golden Spoon at night and getting a yogurt. We believe the walk cancels the calories. Within 3 miles we have shopping, theatres andgreat restaurants

Fantastic - Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed the use of this property for a week. The house met all of our expectations and then some. The house was very clean and was well stocked - from kitchen pantry items to dishes and linens. The backyard was perfect for the summer, shade or sun was always available. The BBQ was nice. We really liked the location right at the border of Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert and close to all amenities. The owners are great to work with and even came to meet us at the house to make sure we new how to use all the amenities. We will definitely try to book this house again.

Wow! Now that was a luxurious, relaxing weekend in a stellar property that had everything right there and ready to enjoy. Need a corkscrew, nut cracker, swanky dishes and beautiful bar glasses and tableware-presto it was there. Such hospitality too. The owner was there to explain everything like the automated Jacuzzi, pool heater, outdoor speakers for music and lots of TV options. If you are deciding between this and another property; don't hesitate. I like to do business with wonderful people. And Terry and his family donated our stay as part of a silent auction fundraiser promoting art in schools for kid's who wouldn't get an art education otherwise. We bid on the getaway and won. Now, we'll be "paying guests" for years to come. Run don't walk for this staycation! We live in San Diego and the short drive meant we had more time to enjoy the house and the sights. Terry, thanks so much for your generosity to Art Reach.

Love, Love, Love, this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, another couple and a single stayed in this gorgeous home for 3 nights. It is beautifully decorated and very well appointed. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could ever need from pots and pans to dishes and glasses to bar ware, etc. The master bedroom is huge with a king size bed, fireplace , TV and a door that leads out to the patio/pool/jacuzzi area. The master bath is also huge with a soaking tub, separate shower, large vanity area and a very large closet. Another bedroom has a king bed with it's own bathroom which was very comfortable and the detached Casita is adorable with a queen bed and it's own bathroom as well. There is an office/bedroom with a trundle bed that would be great for kids or a single adult. We took advantage of the lovely pool and jacuzzi and enjoyed cooking meals on the BBQ. The home is in a gated community and is very safe. There is a 2 car garage and plenty of parking is the drive-way. The guys in our group were very excited to try out 3 different golf courses in the area and of course the ladies enjoyed the Agua Caliente Casino as well as the many choices for shopping! It was a super fun and relaxing getaway and before departing we all agreed we would love to come back again in the near future. Terry, the owner, was really accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Thanks Terry!

Quiet and Relaxing Get Away in a Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We joined 3 other couples for the weekend and had a wonderful stay. The owners had provided a delicious snack for our arrival. The home is large, gracious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Beautiful, expansive master bedroom. Everyone had their own room - one couple was actually in an attached, private casita with full bath - very cool! All amenities are provided. Kitchen is exceptionally well stocked. Backyard included a large, quiet sitting area, pool and jacuzzi, where we enjoyed coffee, conversation, breakfast, playing cards and relaxing throughout the weekend. My husband and I hiked during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to soak in the jacuzzi afterwards - although it does take a little time to heat up. We dined, shopped, and strolled through the neighboring cities of Palm Springs and Cathedral City - all within close driving distance. We also took advantage of the beautiful weather to take long morning walks within the quiet, gaited community. Look forward to staying again!

Beautiful was like staying at the Ritz Carlton!

  • 5 of 5

This home was probably the nicest we've ever rented. Terry, the owner, greeted us when we arrived, gave us a tour & showed us how to work everything (ie. jacuzzi, cable, wifi, kitchen appliances). He made sure we were happy and comfortable the entire week while traveling himself! The layout of the home is terrific for two families. The private casita was perfect for our au pair.

The home is located near everything you could possibly want to visit. It's close to The River, El Paseo, farmer's market, etc.

The pool is wonderful and the built in BBQ area made going out to dinner seem boring...we grilled every evening and roster marshmallows over the fire pit to make smokes. It was fabulous!

We can't wait to return and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a luxurious experience in a safe, gated community in the desert.

Best holiday you may not have had yet....!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a home from home experience, if not more…! You will certainly NOT be disappointed holidaying at this wonderful, beautiful and fully equipped home.

The hosts were very accommodating, informative and just simply charming making sure we had everything we needed for an amazing and memberable two week holiday.

The main shopping areas are just a short drive away (5 minutes) and have everything and more you could possibly want. The weekend street market was great fun and we spent hours getting some great bargains. There are so many wonderful restaurants within easy reach you really do not need to cook at all!

The house was in perfect condition; impeccably clean with wonderful luxurious bedding and towels which always makes a huge difference to our overall holiday experience. The pool was warm, clean and perfectly maintained throughout our stay.

The only problem we had is that we had to leave…..!

A fabulous location, a charming home and an incredibly warm welcome – what more could we ask for – thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
