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!

Exactly as advertised with a great host and wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

First off - Scott could not have been more helpful and professional - excellent service. Furthermore the property was exactly as advertised, extremely clean, with great amenities and outdoor area (clean pool with grill). The sound system is AWESOME and easy to control throughout the house. I would highly recommend this house to anyone I know going to the area.

Great Week in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

My family had another great week at this home. Nice home, private back yard with lots of seating and tables for guests. All the family loved the pool and the arcade games (pinball, pacman) available there. The location is great, and within walking distance of restaurants, and grocery stores, making it possible to avoid lots of driving. The College of the Desert has a theater and art sales on weekends, again all in walking distance. Owners Scott and Briana have really set the house up to have everything you might need, and the Palm Desert sunshine was perfect. This rental is a well managed property with beautiful landscaping that is professionally maintained. We will be back!

Super Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two daughters (aged 3 and 5) had a wonderful stay at Scott's house. The house is very well appointed, Scott was very accommodating and easy to deal with and the pool is very private and well maintained. It is also heated at no extra cost which makes this house an even better deal. Our girls spent hours playing in the pool every day. The location is also great, close to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods for groceries, Paseo Dr. for shopping and restaurants and very close to some great hiking trails. You can walk to the popular "Bump and Grind" hike from the house.

Thanks very much for hosting us, we hope to be back.

Amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

Very good experience for our whole family. My kids had a blast in pool! Scott is very easy to work with, even extended our stay since no guest checking in on the same day we leaving . The house is well appointed with some beautiful decoration. Sound/speaker system is impressive and you can even listen to music or watch TV on pool deck! We were also amazed by a welcome snack basket. Everyone didn't want to leave. Thank you Scott!
