California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Private Pool (Sleeps 6) AC/Pool Heat Included in Rate!

Freshly remodeled and outfitted private mid-century home on a large lot, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, approximately 1900 sq. ft, private south facing pool area, infrared grill, patio seating for 8, 4 lounges, pool games, floats, vintage pinball machine, 5 HD flatscreens, whole house audio, spa tub in master bath, mid-century furnishings and artwork.

About Scott Bennett

We are San Diego natives, and grew up living the active outdoor lifestyle. Still avid tennis players, we found ourselves visiting the desert more and more over the years, wanting to enjoy the excellent tennis and the relaxing lifestyle the desert has to offer. A perfect day for us would be a competitive mixed doubles match in the morning, followed by a Mexican food lunch on El Paseo, and then a relaxing afternoon sitting in the sun, reading by the pool.

Scott Bennett purchased this house in 2013

Why Scott Bennett chose California Desert

We looked at properties in several different desert communities, and chose this property because of its privacy, proximity to shopping and restaurants, and overall style. It is a wonderful place to be, and we feel very lucky to have found it.

What makes this house unique

Completely remodeled in 2013, this property has modern amenities, but still has a mid-century flair. The kitchen's appliances are all stainless, the range is gas, and there is a dishwasher and trash compactor. The TV's are all HD flat screens, and there are a total of five, including one in the outside patio area. There is a separate sound system with a CD player, iPod/phone jack, and built in speakers that are room selectable. There is a small game room/office off the pool area with a cool 1970's vintage pinball machine and a work desk. The overall feel of the living areas is very bright and open. The patio area is south facing, giving it prime exposure. The master bathroom features a jetted tub and a very spacious rock style shower. The bedrooms can be made to stay dark all day, for those late morning sleep-ins when you just want to relax. The furnishings and artwork throughout the house have a mid-century vibe, and are tastefully done. We tried to offer all the modern amenities that everyone wants, but not at the expense of sacrificing the mid-century feel of the home. Hopefully you can agree that we pulled it off!

Awesome 4th of July Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing. Everything was well though of when they built/equipped the house. The pool was big, the misters were a nice touch and all the entertainment features(tvs/music) was perfect. The master bed was soo comfortable as well!

the house was clean and the layout was perfect. the owners were very welcoming and very helpful in making our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Couldn't have picked a better house for the weekend!!!

Will rent again in the future!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. It had everything that you will need during your stay. It was centrally located in Palm Desert- close to shopping and restaurants. The backyard was the perfect set up, great pool, easy to use grill, great outdoor area!

We loved it and look forward to visiting again!

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this home. It had everything we needed including the baby items which came in handy for a 9 month old!! Scott took good care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. He went above and beyond and it was appreciated. I myself loved the pool which I used every day. We all had a nice relaxing vacation and would recommend this home!!! If we make it back that way again would love to rent from Scott again. Thanks!!!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This has been the 3-4 time we have rented Scott's bungalow in Palm Desert. We love this place! We see other rentals that are available, but we always come back to Scott's place because we already KNOW it is good! Why take chances on something unknown? In any event, we will be back again sometime in the future I am sure!

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 4 of my canadian friends came down here for 5 day. We loved everything about the property - including an amazing location close to everything fun to do in Palm Desert! It was super easy to walk to the mall and restaurants and the Fair.

Scott accommodated our request to cool the pool a bit and was always easy to get a hold of when we had a question, etc. The house itself has great beds, linens and a dishes, etc. super comfortable and we felt safe and secure. I can't wait to come back!!
