About the property

Private Luxury 2BR/2BA Villa - Closest Unit to the Courts!

Located in the fabulous Mission Hills Tennis & Golf Resort, this 2 BR/2 BA Condominium is the

closest unit to your tennis needs. Within a few yards are Hard Courts, Grass Courts and Clay Courts,

as well as the Tennis Pro Shop which sits atop the Championship Hard Court that is just steps

away. With the great weather and the variety of playing surfaces it is no wonder that professional

players and top juniors from around the world continually arrive at Mission Hills to hone their skills for

tournament play. This Condominium was previously owned by a former Davis Cup Captain!

World Class Croquet players … we also back onto the two Championship Croquet courts. Walk out 30

feet from the back patio and you are standing in the middle of the Croquet Lawn Courts (five full-size

courts) where the worlds best play. This is the site of the US Open Croquet Championship and the

About Nancy & Marilyn

Stanford University Alum & Avid Tennis Player

This is mine and my wife and three childrens' favorite place to be! Sadly we live in Northern California and don't get to enjoy it enough.

Nancy & Marilyn purchased this villa in 1999

Why Nancy & Marilyn chose California Desert

My grandmother was a top ranked senior tennis player (her son was a professional tennis player who competed in the US Open and Wimbledon in the 60s and 70s) from Seattle who fell in love with the area and waited for years to find the perfect tennis unit in the Desert. Coincidentally, the original owner was former David Cup Captain Tom Gorman, who was her son's doubles partner. When she passed we decided that this unit should be kept in the family forever.

What makes this villa unique

Please visit our website for additional information. The unit is unique in that it is steps over the lawn/croquet green to the clay, grass and hard courts and as the end unit inside the tennis complex only shares a small amount of common wall space with just 1 neighbor, making it feel like a separate freestanding unit (feels like it is just you and the scenery/tennis courts, very private). The other villas are either next to the road or have multiple neighbors on both sides. I have been told by several people very qualified to make such a statement that the grass courts are the best in the United States.

The Premier Tennis & Croquet Villa In Mission Hills
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Beautiful, private, and the ultimate tennis location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a paradise! Even in the hot July weather... There are pools within walking distance in every direction and this unit is so perfectly located, it feels like you own the tennis courts (its on a corner within the tennis complex, so no roads or neighbors between you and the scenery/tennis) You walk out your back door onto the croquet green and then onto (take your pick) the first clay court, the stadium hard court, or the grass courts (my personal favorite, there are not many of these around in the US). I have stayed here before and a well known retired former champion was practicing on the first clay court during breakfast on the rear patio!
