Palm 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. All furniture, electronics, bedding, towels, dishes, glasses, etc. were brand new mid-2013.

We have recently added a commercial grade misting system to the patio, which keeps the patio area much cooler in the hotter months.

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!

Beautiful villa in a beautiful town with beautiful people. Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days at Scotts villa in Palm Desert and could easily have spent 9 more. Villa is beautifully cared for, clean, spacious and private. Lots to do in and around Palm Desert, especially if you like shopping. Excellent outlet village about 30 minutes down the i10 towards LA, Palm Springs is 20 minutes away (lovely Mexican restaurant on the main road for lunch or dinner).

Back to the villa. Three double bedrooms that are huge, all with their own tv. Two bathrooms that look like new. Huge pool with pool toys, misters for when it's just a little too hot by the pool. Just perfect.

Really easy to get to from LAX (for any overseas visitors)

This is the only holiday where we have said we would happily come back and we've loved every holiday we've ever been on!!

You really do get what you pay for, worth every penny/cent.

Wonderful desert escape!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we were looking for in a Palm Desert weekend! The private backyard is perfection; you can relax in a large, pristine pool while listening to music through the outdoor sound system or lounge around watching TV under a covered patio being kept cool by misters. The layout of the house is also great, the bedrooms have separation from the common areas and all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans. The furniture is comfortable and stylish, all the electronics enhance your indoor time and the plush towels and robes make you feel like you're at a spa. But best of all, is the environment created by the owners. Scott made it very clear that he was available by phone at any time and that our comfort was top priority. He wants you to enjoy your time in the home and makes you feel like treasured personal guests. Thank you, Scott, for a wonderful vacation!

From the moment we stepped in, the house was clean & spacious! All that we needed was there and more. The owners thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. The home looks just like the pictures and is centrally located close to stores and restaurants. We truly enjoyed our stay, including the BBQ, misters, and pool and look forward to returning again. Scott, the owner, was promptly in touch with us, making sure we had all that we needed during our stay. We had a great time, thank you!
