Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 16

Palm Springs City ID # 1048-4592 Formerly owned by Dale Wasserman who wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, this estate is crazy good! If you’re looking for a large property, luscious greenery, and luxurious details, this home is for you.

Lavish layout includes living room, dining room, and step-down media room. There’s not only a large modern kitchen, but also a butler’s pantry, replete with wine refrigerators, for easy food preparation.

Each of the 6 bedrooms are exquisitely appointed with high-thread count sheets, fluffy towels, comfy comforters, and ceiling fans. The stunning master bath shines with polished marble, his and her walk-in closets, dual sinks, and a Jacuzzi tub.

The jaw-dropping waterfall, pristine pool, and private sunning area make the outdoors just as magnificient as in the indoors. A covered patio (lanai) runs the entire length of the house providing shade and a breeze from 2 exterior-mounted fans. With chaise lounges, conversation corners, and dining tables, you can easily serve up to 20 guests. And, the separate guest house makes it easy to vacation together, yet provide “apart” time too.

Nearby Ruth Hardy park affords public tennis courts, basketball courts, children’s play area, and walking path.

Reviewer Comments:

We booked the Cuckoo's Nest along with the Spanish Estate and The Alan Ladd Estate for our wedding this March to house our bridal party and out of town family. The Cuckoo's Nest was where the bridesmaids stayed and also served as the bridal suite for getting ready photos, as well as for our rehearsal dinner. We can't say enough about how incredibly gorgeous the property is and how it created an ambiance for the whole wedding weekend. James and Kenny were amazing to work with as well. Kenny went above and beyond making sure everything was perfect for us from check-in time flexibility to walk throughs, he made the whole process seamless. HIGHLY recommend this company and their absolutely amazing properties.

Reviewer Comments:

We had an incredible week at this property. Kenny was very accommodating and helpful at check-in; the house was clean, in excellent repair, and very well stocked with linens and kitchen-ware. We enjoyed the pool and spa every day, and loved the huge kitchen and multiple dishwashers. It was an ideal spot for our large group (3 generations, 7 adults, 6 children ages 0-9).

Reviewer Comments:

With 17 extended family and 6 children under the age of 6, this home was perfect. Every family had their own bedroom and the pool casita house was just right for a newborn and parents. Everyone loved the heated pool with rocks to climb and dive from and a wonderful hot tub. There was even a grassy area for tossing the football and for the dogs to run around. The furnishings and kitchen were up to date and very well appointed. We cooked a Thanksgiving meal with no problem in the kitchen and loved having two dishwashers! The property manager was extremely responsive to our requests. Liked having a playground and park only a block away. Would definitely return to this beautiful property!

Our family of 12 stayed in this property for a week and there was plenty of room for everyone. ModMansions was easy to work with - quick to respond to everything! The pool and outdoor area is especially nice because there are sunny areas and shady areas throughout the day. Truly a great house!

Our entire experience with this property was excellent. Our property manager Kenny was very accommodating and took the time to review everything with us. The home is ideal for group gatherings. The backyard pool was beautiful as were the surrounding gardens which made our stay that much more relaxing. We would definitely come back and would recommend it to anyone.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Cuckoo's nest for a partners' business retreat. It is a fantastic home, with lots of space and very well maintained. The pool is beautiful and a welcome respite in the heat. The house provides great space for gathering together as a large group while at the same time offering privacy for those moments you just need to get away alone. We rent houses every year to meet in different locations and this one is the best so far. From the initial reservation to the last communication with the property management company, the experience was excellent.
