I own a small company and every year our top 5 executives and their spouses go away for a week long retreat/corporate planning trip. this was the perfect venue. we all had individual and beautiful bedroom suites. the pool area is gorgeous and the kitchen, dining room, living room and TV. Frankly the hours was even better than the photos, plus there is great local golf and spas. and a very nice added benefit was the regular housekeeping that was included at no cost. owner is wonderful. highly recommend this property to anyone.

We just finished our month-long stay, and the only words to use are 'unbelievable house.' The main house alone was worth the money between the huge bedrooms, beautiful dining and living rooms, bar area, TV room, etc., but the two casitas (one is set up as an office, but has great sleeper sofa and full bathroom) make it unbelievable if you have in-laws or visitors for whom you want to give some privacy. We ate outside on the gorgeous patio most nights looking at the beautiful poor and gardens and using one of the two outside BBQs they have. The neighborhood is also great---quiet, residential, guard-gated, but you are also within walking distance of a big Resort Spa and restaurants/movie theatres. My family has rented many VRBO homes around California, and this was clearly the best house we've ever stayed in. And to top it off, they provided a great house-keeper a couple days a week (I'd hire her if I could). Negotiating tip: I think they charge the same price for 20 days as they do for 30 days? If you have the time to visit that area for a month, I highly recommend it.

Truly a terrific month spent at this home. We are from Calgary and have rented several desert homes (very nice---generally 4-6 bedrooms) in Indian Wells, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage and found this the most enjoyable & relaxing while beautiful as the photos we saw online. The first week was a corporate outing where we had 5 couples visiting, Plenty of privacy for all. Great proximity to golf/tennis/spa/hiking. Some walkable. The remainder of the month was family..at one point we had ages 2-94 (my Grandfather). Thumbs up. We already signed up for next year for this home

My husband and 3 children loved this home, the location, the pool, the beds, the great outdoor space. We are renting it again this year for another month. My husband Jim thought the location was key and right in the center of the "valley" where there's both action, quiet and golf!!! Owners super nice too...left us a Goodie Bag which was so sweet.

About the owner: We are from Chicago and quite by accident discovered Rancho Mirage while on vacation (we were in San Diego during a monsoon and my husband said let's go to the desert). The desert? It was love at first sight! The air, the scenery, the outdoor activities...amazing place to live and have kids! We live most of the time in downtown Chicago but treasure time spent at the desert home.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
It's unique in that it's very private (House is gated, plus 30 home neighborhood is gated with a security guard). But we have large families and love to entertain...we give several parties a year ranging from small of 40 guests to 200 people when you open the indoor outdoor sliders. Plus we can sleep easily 16 people which is a huge plus...our family loves being here and always say how 'happy and warm' the house feels.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It's a super place to relax, have corporate getaways, elegant but kid friendly, family reunions. There are so many places to gather as a group or if you want to be alone...the den, outdoor living room, huge veranda with seating areas. It's a happy, peaceful place.
