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 Palm 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!

Great vacation stay !

  • 4 of 5

Great place to gather with the girlfriends. Sun and a pool at your fingertips. Fantastic shopping. Walking distance and the Saturday market walking distance the other direction. I just would suggest people have their tourist info gathered before getting there. Other than that , I certainly recommend it to others. We will be back👍

Great Value , Owners were fantastic to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the private yard, pool, and outdoor TV (for playing music channel). The patio has a misting system for hot days. BBQ works perfect once cleaned. There’s a games room with Pinball and 100’s of old Atari titles. Kid friendly. Well stocked kitchen. Master bath has a jet tub. Laundry and garage parking. We recommend staying here. Also walking distance to shops and trails around College of desert. Thanks Scott for making it a 5 star stay for our family.

The property is fantastic and far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was a most pleasant experience. The property is beautiful, placed in the middle of Palm Desert and near to all restaurants and shopping, yet quite and private. The house was immaculate and the facilities top notch. The owner was always available by phone or text and was most helpful. We could not find one disparaging remark. The place was just spectacular and we would definitely stay again.

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Great location, very comfortable beds, pillows, excellent pool. This house is very well set up. Had a great time playing pinball, took sometime to remember all of the old moves, but they came back quickly. Scott is great to deal with and is very quick to respond to any questions. Thank you for a very relaxing vacation rental.
