Property description

Welcome to vacation paradise! We loved this house so much when we stayed here - we bought it! Now we're excited to share it with you...if you have stayed here before, come back and check out the upgrades! If you haven't stayed here before, what are you waiting for?

Entertain, enjoy, relax at this incredible gated architectural estate in the heart of Palm Springs...absolute privacy and contemporary luxury!

The house is approximately 3500 square feet and is located on a very private, gated, walled lot of almost 17,000 square feet. There is a large saltwater play pool and a separate saltwater spa. The huge yard has multiple patios, mature foliage and fruit trees...and it is completely private. There are no overhead power lines in the way of the mountain views.

Walls of glass with doors that open to the pool/patios offer guests the famous Palm Springs indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Flooring is white limestone, with carpet in the bedrooms. There is a built-in stereo system with an MP3/iPod hook up and integrated speakers throughout the public spaces inside and out. Dark walnut custom built-ins throughout, including custom cabinetry in the beautiful professional kitchen. There is formal dining with seating for 8. The living room features a dramatic 'fire and ice' fireplace. There's also a media room with a flat panel TV with TimeWarner Cable, HBO, SHO, and other premium channels, and a DVD player.

The master retreat is located in it's own wing behind a pivot door. The custom master bathroom has walls of glass; a freestanding tub in front of a double-sided 'fire and ice' fireplace; an over sized shower with views of the mountains, four shower heads, and a wall of copper; a 12-foot long cantilevered vanity with integrated Caesarstone sinks; and a walk-in closet. In the bedroom there is a king size bed; flat screen TV w/DVD player connected to TimeWarner Cable and a Modernica couch for lounging.

Two other large bedroom suites are located on the other side of the house, each with their own bathrooms featuring Caesarstone slab counters and limestone showers. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV w/DVD connected to TimeWarner Cable. WiFi internet access extends throughout the property.

There is parking for 4-6 cars and/or an RV/Boat/Trailer, all behind gates. There is NO garage access.

Minutes from downtown restaurants, shops, museum, movie theaters, live theater, and casino. Two blocks from a park with tennis, basketball, and a 'fitness course.' Less than one block from Desert Hospital. Easy drive to Palm Springs International Airport and dozens of golf courses. Pets are allowed on a case by case basis with an additional security deposit. Full concierge service is available upon request.

Some comments from previous guests:

'This is - hands down - the coolest house I've ever stayed in! I'll be back!'

'Thanks so much for opening your lovely home to us...the pictures don't do it justice...'

'Wow! Your house is HUGE, the pool is FANTASTIC, the kitchen is AMAZING, and the location ROCKED. I usually stay at the Viceroy or the Parker, but never again. Did I mention, WOW?!'

'Thank you for the wonderful weekend in your stunning home...I felt like I was in a private 5-star resort!'
