Mission Hills Country Club house description
Casually elegant, pristine and very private 3,500-square-foot California Mediterranean house on one-third of an acre in the prestigious Oakmont Estates section of guard-gated Mission Hills Country Club. Lovely and inviting interior created by noted Los Angeles designer for owner's personal use, plus lush, mature landscaping throughout the property.
Outside: Gated front courtyard is a tranquil oasis including a gently overflowing water feature, banana palms and bougainvillea. Backyard has two covered patios (one with a sitting area), four wrought-iron chaise lounge chairs, four fountains spilling into a large pool, a spa that accommodates six, decorative pottery and a stainless-steel built-in gas BBQ, all surrounded by a mature ficus hedge.
Inside: Art-filled, colorful main house with custom-painted walls and ceilings in all public rooms sleeps up to six in three bedrooms. Luxurious master suite with king bed and enormous walk-in closet overlooks the pool, and the spacious master bath has a walk-in shower enclosed by glass block, his/her sink areas plus a make-up station, and a deep Jacuzzi tub. Each of the two guest bedrooms has a queen bed and an en suite bathroom. Detached casita with powder-blue walls and bamboo-wallpaper ceiling has a full bath and sleeps two (day bed/2 twins).
Well-equipped, eat-in kitchen with center island features stainless-steel appliances, six-burner gas stove, built-in microwave oven, rich wood cabinetry and granite countertops. Through the butler’s pantry with glass-fronted cabinets is the voluminous dining room, with 18-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace, flowing silk curtains, a wall of six French doors and Arte de Mexico chandelier and sconces. The living room with multiple conversation areas, a gas fireplace and a wet bar overlooks the pool and gardens. There are custom window treatments throughout the house, and built-in stereo speakers inside and out. Dogs typically are okay with advance approval, but no cats, please.
Rental rates include cable TV, WiFi, weekly pool service, weekly gardening service, water and unlimited domestic long-distance telephone.
Mission Hills Country Club is a members-only club with world-class tennis facilities and three 18-hole golf courses. The adjacent Westin Mission Hills hotel has two public 18-hole golf courses.
Nearby shopping includes The River (Rancho Mirage), El Paseo (Palm Desert) and Palm Canyon Drive (Palm Springs), each with a variety of stores, boutiques and art galleries. Children will enjoy the Living Desert, Knott’s Soak City and the nearby Children’s Discovery Museum, while adults will enjoy the spas at the desert’s many resorts and the nearby Agua Caliente casino. Many other attractions and restaurant options are too numerous to list.

Excellent family spring break getaway
Excellent family spring break getaway
Just returned from a weeklong, multi-generational trip (2 adults, 3 kids, 2 grandparents) to Palm Desert for spring break. We have stayed at almost a dozen VRBO properties with the kids and grandparents, and this was among the best. The property is even nicer than the pictures would suggest. The residence is relatively new, spacious, professionally decorated/furnished, and very clean and well-maintained. The separate casita (which houses the fourth bedroom) was nice for the grandparents. The pool is heated and safe (~5' at its deepest point), with nice features like selectable colored lighting. The property's location within the gated Mission Hills community was ideal. We took daily runs around the community, and we were able to walk with the kids to the clubhouse to watch the Kraft Nabisco LPGA championship with the kids. The property also is close to the River shopping mall and restaurants, Agua Caliente casino (for the gambling grandparents), multiple golf courses, Costco, and Walmart. The owners were very accommodating, working with us to solve an early problem with the internet access.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: This house was purchased as a second home by a family from Beverly Hills, Calif. We bought it while it was under construction, which allowed us to landscape and decorate it, literally, from the ground up.
Why the Owner Chose Mission Hills Country Club:
Rancho Mirage is a beautiful city and is centrally located for all the Coachella Valley has to offer. Mission Hills is a top-notch community that is impeccably maintained. You can stroll or bike for miles without leaving this gated paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house offers the perfect retreat from the daily grind, and we find the stress melts away and the fun begins as soon as we open the front gate. It's rich in amenities, filled with sunlight and very private.
