Why Mark Smoley chose California Desert

After our father passed we decided to sell his house and purchase a house in the desert where we have vacationed as a family for 30 years. The area has created so many memories for us that we wanted to not only enjoy this amazing property ourselves but also create new memories for other families.

What makes this house unique

We loved this property because of the privacy. We were tired of going to community pools and trying to save lounge chairs. It has the feel of a resort without all the people and rules.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Linda and her parents were fabulous guests. They left our home in great shape and Linda even helped with a keypad issue that came up. Would highly recommend Linda as a guest

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend in February and had a great experience! The house is very clean and spacious with everything you could possible need. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances so it's very easy to cook a big meal for everyone. We didn't use the pool but did enjoy the hot tub. The house looks better in person then in the photos from the profile. Mark was very easy to get in touch with and even had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The location is also perfect! Overall a wonderful stay!

Fantastic retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at this fabulous property. Perfect for our family of 5. Great location, quiet neighborhood, very spacious, homey and clean, such comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchen for a few meals we made in (just 2 mins away from a nice grocery store), super outdoor grill, nice library of movies, huge screen TV. Amazing backyard retreat - we loved the hot tub and used it tons (did not venture into the pool as the temps were a bit nippy). The 3 working bikes in the garage were also such a nice treat. Would absolutely return and vacation here again! Kudos to the owners - super well done!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at this home for our second time and truly enjoy all of its amenities. The best part is that we can bring our dog and not have the worry or stress of boarding her. We truly feel at home when we are vacationing here and hope to enjoy for many more of our family vacations!

Mark's home had everything we wanted and more! Everyone in our party had a wonderful long weekend and we took advantage of the pool and barbecue. Would highly recommend this place for anyone that is looking to unwind in Palm Desert. Hope to be back soon!

Paradise by the pool

  • 5 of 5

This home is handy-to-everything If you can tear yourself away from the great, private pool, hot tub, barbecue area (complete with sink, shower and toilet). Quiet, private, peaceful home but in the heart of the city - walking distance to restaurants and much more and close to El Paseo. Completely enclosed, safe yard for your dog. Mark and Brent are quick to respond to questions. Recommended!
