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!

Clean, well outfitted and cool when we arrived!

  • 5 of 5

First impressions are important. If anyone vacations in PS during the off season as much as we do, they know how hard it is to get a house cooled off and comfortable to live in during the summer months. I was impressed that the house was cool and the fridge was up to Temp upon arrival.

I was already happy with that, the home had TV's everywhere, and sound inside and out. We enjoyed having a meal and watching football outside while some were watching floating in the pool.

Great neighborhood, felt safe and very close to all types of shopping.

The owner called to tour is through the house and make sure we didn't have any questions or issues, and he was very laid back and accommodating. We asked for late check out and he was very cool about it.

Tips: bring paper towels, multi purpose cleaner, Saran wrap and aluminum foil if you're planning on cooking and using the kitchen. The infrared bbq is great but you need to make sure the burners are on because it's very quiet. The owner had warned me about it so at one point when someone accidentally turned it too low and or steaks weren't cooking, I looked through the little holes over the temp dials, and realized the flames had turned off. We relit and saw flame and we're back in business.

Great weekend!

We absolutely loved staying here! Looking forward to booking the house again. It had everything you needed for a complete and comfortable stay. Thanks so much for allowing us to visit and stay in your gorgeous home. Scott was great about getting in touch and going over things in the house, and I have no doubt if we had any problems or concerns, he'd be more than happy to remedy the situation. Super nice house, super nice host, great location!

Girls' Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

WOW! They really thought of it all when creating this home away from home for their guests. From start to finish, the rental process was a breeze. Scott was quick to respond, and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was exactly what we'd hoped for. The house is well equipped to have a great time - we especially loved being able to play music outdoors and throughout the house while we enjoyed the amazing, perfect-temperature pool. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need. The towels and linens were clean and soft.

The home is centrally located to retail stores, groceries, dining, and entertainment, and is a short jaunt from Palm Springs proper. We had a great time, and look forward to visiting this property again!

Go no further in your pursuit of perfection

  • 5 of 5

This house has absolutely everything one could want. I was met by a lovely Welcome basket with some starter coffee and snacks. We needed an earlier check-in due to dinner and a concert out in Indio, and Scott was very accomodating. He texted me when the house was ready to be occuped which was even earlier than he had promised. Upon checking in, I called Scott and received a room by room narrated tour of the house along with instructions on how to operate everything. The kitchen is fully stocked and even has 2 coffee makers (Keurig and conventional). Every bedroom has its own television and there is a large one on the patio in the shade in addition to the main one in the living room. The beds are very comfortable with fans in every room and the entire house is both impeccably decorated and yet very comfortable. This is by far the most organized and easy house I have ever rented. We look forward to returning in the winter to take advantage of the beautiful heated pool and fireplace. Thanks Scott!

Perfect

The house was beautiful and extremely well-maintained. Scott was a wonderful host. I went with my childhood friend for her birthday and now she is talking about doing it again next year. The pool was large and the temperature just right. We both would highly recommend this home.
