Private Homes house description

VILLA AMELIA is a great value when comparing price and amenities to that of a hotel rooms or a condo multi-plex. What could be better than your very own house that accommodates a family of six; a private, refreshing 15 x 30ft pool & spa with spectacular mountain views; and a location close to downtown and other attractions in the Coachella Valley?!

Located in a newly built subdivision just north of the bustle of downtown Palm Springs, Villa Amelia is still far enough away for quiet seclusion and total privacy. Elegant home décor includes leather furniture, slate tiled floors, a rustic stone fire place, a King and 2 Queen beds. Beach & bath towels, linens and bedding are all included. We offer 400-600 thread count sheets and down mattress pads for optimum comfort.

From the master bedroom, there are French doors leading to a private backyard and a sparkling 15 x 30ft. pool & spa with mountain views to the west. The pool includes a 10 inch tanning shelf, perfect for the little ones. The patio deck also includes out door dining for 6, and a stainless-steel BBQ Grill.

Indoor entertaining includes a 28' cable TV/DVD and stereo in family-room along with sofa-sleeper; the semi-formal dining area will comfortably seat 6; and the bright modern kitchen contains all the culinary amenities for home cooked meals. Large enough to accommodate 6 adults, this home is available for getaway weekends, long vacations, and special holidays.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Villa Amelia is located in a newly built subdivision just north of the bustle of downtown Palm Springs, yet far enough away for quiet seclusion and total privacy.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I was born in the Cochella Valley and spent much of my childhood camping in Joshua Tree National Park, hiking Mt. San Jacinto and exploring the surrounding desert wildlife. Upon adulthood and after establishing my career as graphic designer, I jumped at the opportunity of buying a vacation home here. Villa Amelia and Palm Springs is the perfect place to find solitude when you want to get away from the city 'rat-race.' I know you will enjoy this property as much as I do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      What better way to enjoy sunny Palm Springs than floating in your very own private 15 x 13 foot pool with adjoining spa and spectacular mountain views to the west. A walk just 2 blocks away is Albertson's grocery and shopping center for quick pick-ups on supplies, like fruit and mixers for your favorite daiquiri recipe (blender provided at house). Outside of the property, I strongly suggest the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. It's the world's largest rotating tramcar and will take you to the top of Mt. San Jacinto 8,516 feet above the desert valley for magnificent views.
