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

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.

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

First Class

  • 5 of 5

This year was our 4th visit to Terry's home during the boys annual golf tour. From the first visit to our most recent the property has been first class with all the amenities on site and nearby. On future trips to the valley Terry's property will be first choice for friends and family.

Stunning Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was a girls trip to Palm Springs. The owner, Terry, met us at the home and explained how everything worked. The owners also leave lots of helpful info for their guests. This home is beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable. Location is close to lots of shopping, hiking, and great restaurants. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight. We never went out to dinner as we thoroughly enjoyed cooking in and eating out on the patio, time in the Jacuzzi, and lots of girl talk. The home is stocked with everything you need, so just bring your suitcase. I will reiterate what all the other reviewers commented, but also add that the setting is very quiet and peaceful.

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!
