About Scott Shanstrom

I grew up in Montana and several friends were involved with and owned dude ranches, historical resorts and guide services - I guided fly fishing on the Yellowstone River through High School and College. I've always liked the idea of travelers coming from all corners to experience and share wonderful places. In addition, I’ve traveled extensively for work and have stayed in a wide variety of accommodations, making note of what I appreciate and look for in accommodations which I work to provide in my vacation rental properties.

We have had a vacation home in Rancho Mirage for several years and each time we had to head back to the Pacific Northwest, we found it more and more difficult to leave the desert and all that it so famously offers. Fairly recently, the opportunity arose to locate to the Desert as our main residence. I liked the idea of developing properties as vacation homes for clients to enjoy, but be able to come and go without having to deal with and worry about maintenance, opening & closing the vacation home, managing services, and all of the ongoing expenses of owning a vacation home. Come, enjoy, relax, and leave everything to us and we'll keep the home ready for your next visit! Worry Free!!

Scott Shanstrom purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott Shanstrom chose California Desert

After much looking and comparisons, we chose Rancho Mirage, and specifically the Tamarisk Country Club area, for our vacation home due to its impeccable reputation for its safety, elegance, sophisticated yet relaxed lifestyle, a stunning setting and this neighborhood’s protection from the valley winds. We wanted a home easy to live in that was conducive to indoor- outdoor living & entertaining. In addition, we were looking for maximum privacy along with a quiet setting away from all main arterial traffic noises. We were very fortunate to find all of this along with the added bonus of an enormous lot that adds to the exclusivity and enjoyment of very private indoor-outdoor desert living at its best.

What makes this house unique

This home has been remodeled and set up exclusively as a vacation feeling like you are camping out in someone else's home but instead your very own private resort....without all the people!

Clean, practical, private and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and decided to meet our son and girlfriend in Palm Springs area. Enjoyed the sun (extreme sun) which is perfect for my wife as she is a sun godess. Clean house with enough room for two coupls to function comfortably. Close enough to Palm Springs for a 15 min / $15 Uber to get some great food/entertainment. Look forward to a return trip. Thank you Scott!

Beautiful home, wonderful owner!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home to stay at! My friend and I were on a girls trip and we came to relax and soak up the sun and this was the perfect property to do so. I really do not have a lot to add that the other reviewers havent said but I wanted to make sure to give Scott 5 stars as this property is so deserving of such! Scott was soooooo nice and so accomodating - the check in process was a breeze as was the check out. Scott had some great recommendations for restaurants etc. although the pool and property was so nice we barely left it. Was sad to leave but I hope to be back! The pool was so beautiful and a nice size, at the deep end it was probably 6 feet. Such a pleasure to lay poolside watching the hummingbirds and butterflies.....

Great home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week and loved the home. It has all the amenities you would want and the pool and spa are perfect for relaxing. The home is close to Palm Desert and Palm Springs and is less than an hour from Joshua Tree National Park. Scott was a great host-very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend staying here.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property and Scott. The house has everything you could want/need for your stay. Scott didn't skimp on any detail. Beds are so comfy, showers are amazing, even the cutlery is top notch! The backyard is perfectly manicured and private. We had such a relaxing week and fully intend on coming back! THANK YOU!

Wonderful week at Villa de Solara

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Scott for a wonderful week at Villa de Solara. We were relaxed as soon as we opened the door to this immaculate and well designed home. The pool and backyard were amazing and we able to enjoy the beautiful late September sunshine. The bedrooms were large with comfortable mattresses and the kitchen was equipped with high-end appliances. The wine fridge was a nice touch and much appreciated during our stay. We hope to return soon.

Tamarisk Country Club addition is a very quiet and safe neighborhood and highly sought after due to the natural protection from the majority of desert winds. The night desert sky has been thoughtfully preserved with very few street lights to showcase the amazing star viewing. The Tamarisk addition offers very quiet streets for morning and evening walks (or both!). A really great neighborhood for touring via bikes and beautiful landscaping and many architecturally recognized homes. From this home and neighborhood there is easy access to Palm Springs Airport, groceries, shopping and restaurants and the annual Coachella Valley events. This home is centrally located between downtown Palm Springs and Palm Desert - just blocks off of highway 111.
