Property description

Resort living at its best! Newly furninshed. Gated community with mountain views. Our home is at the end of a cul de sac with beautiful views of the desert mountains. Take a dip in our crystal clear pool while you BBQ dinner on the grill. Need a lemon for your cocktail or do you want to make fresh-squeezed lemonade? We have 2 citrus trees that bare fruit nearly year-round and shade our small dog run with green grass.

The gourmet market Bristol Farms is walking distance from the property.

Have children or grand children? The second bedroom has spacious full size bunk-beds with a 3rd pull out bed and a flat screen TV, Playstation 3 and 2 surround-sound audio chairs for the full gaming experience.

The Master Bedroom has a California King bed with high thread count sheets and 100% cotton bath linens. There is also a walk-in closet and a beautiful copper ceiling fan. View the crystal clear pool water while lying in your bed ... the master bedroom has a sliding glass door that opens up to the backyard and swimming pool.

The 3rd bedroom has a full-size pull-out bed that sleeps 2 comfortably. This room also has a desk with copier, printer and scan capability.

Our home is five minutes from the I-10 and McCallum theater. Costco is also 5 minutes away in case you need to stock up for your visit.

Take the electric golf cart to dinner or shopping on El Paseo, just 2 miles away. Palm Desert is one of the few desert cities where golf carts are street legal. Most main roads have golf cart pathways for safe travel.

The River shopping mall/movie theater is about 7 minutes away as are many fantastic golf courses...

Hungry? Just a 5 minute stroll or 2 minute golf cart ride away are Sherman's Deli, Bristol Farms, and Gorilla Burger- which boasts The Best Burger in the Valley and boy is it true!!! Feeling lazy? Order a yummy pizza from Pa Pa Dan's, just next to Sherman's Deli, they also deliver...

Our home is wired! We have a 65' LED TV with 5.1 surround sound, free high-speed WiFi, full digital cable with over 250 channels and a Amazon TV First Stick for unlimited movie viewing. We also have tons of board games! The yard has lounge chairs, a dining table that sets 6, pool toys and a pool basketball hoop.

And now for the boring stuff: full size washer and dryer, brand new Samsung refrigerator with double capacity ice maker/dispenser and triple filtered water system. New gas BBQ with 1 touch ignition. 2 car garage with small wine frig to keep your wines cool.

Please call us with any questions. We look forward to your visit!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I purchased this property as a place to relax and get away. We try to get to Palm Desert at least twice a year. Now that we have very small children, it is often difficult to get away. This property is a vacation home. We only rent to responsible adults and do a background check on potential renters. The property is clean and well maintained.

Why the Owner Chose Merano:
Our vacation home was set up for relaxation. We have a beautiful crystal blue pool that is very well maintained. We have children, so the guest room has bunkbeds- size double, not twin- perfect for teenagers or adults. The room also has everything a kid/or big kid could want. Their own private soda machine and Play Station with special audio chairs for the maximum gaming experience. We have lots of board games too. One of our favorite things to do is BBQ, night swim and play board games with our teenagers until the wee hours. We also love to take the golf cart to the Desert Springs Marriott and take the free boat ride to Mikado restaurant for dinner.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is a vacation home. It is very private and quiet. The house is kid friendly and is located next to some of the best restaurants in Palm Desert. Our boys walk to Gorilla Burger- best burger in the desert and will often wonder over to El Paseo - only a 1.5 mile walk. There is a community center less than 1 mile away where the kids play basket ball pick up games at the gym. We have all tile floors, so you don't have to worry too much about mess & allergens. We have a small dog run on the side of the house. We have 2 dog beds in the house, I am sure Spike, Lola and Cosette would be happy to share them with your little critters. You will find many people walking their dogs throughout the gated community all times of day. We are at a cup de sac, so you won't see many dogs pass our home, but you will see plenty of dogs walking with their owners happily on their leashes once on the main road.
