Private Homes house description

From the moment you step through the wrought-iron and wood gate, you'll think this magnificent Old World Spanish villa is in the Mediterranean countryside. Everything you need for gracious indoor and outdoor living and entertaining is here: pool (perfect for kids), spa, spacious covered patio, outdoor kitchen with barbeque, ceiling fans, romantic fire pit and magnificent, sweeping views of Mount San Jacinto.

This is the perfect venue for a special event such as a milestone birthday, a reunion or a seasonal celebration. With a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, four beautiful bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and over 3000 square feet of interior space, this new (2004), generously proportioned, superbly designed and appointed home easily accommodates multiple large and small groups without sacrificing privacy.

The architecture, interior design and furnishings are elegant and lavish. Each bedroom suite has its own full bath and walk-in closet, with French doors opening to the pool or private patio area. The master suite has a king bed and the other three have queen beds. Casa Serenidad is a quiet, serene retreat where tension melts away. One definitely feels pampered here!

Other amenities include custom designer built-ins and furnishings in harmony with the architecture, dual zone heating and air conditioning, security system, wireless Internet access and three-car garage. Upgrades as of August 2013 include new entertainment center with 50” LED flat screen TV and surround sound - plug in your iPhone, iPod or MP3 player and CD and hear your music inside and out.

This single family one-level home is located on a cul-de-sac ideally located near the Palm Springs Airport, downtown shopping, galleries, restaurants and casino.

We are NOT a property management company. Casa Serenidad is our own property. When you rent from us, our caretaker will meet you at the house at the time you agree to. He’ll walk you through the property, demonstrating electronics, appliances, and spa. He’ll answer any questions you may have, make sure you’re comfortable, and then leave. However, he only lives a few blocks away, in the unlikely event you should need help.

You must be 25 years old to rent this home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are retired Information Technology and Equipment Leasing professionals with a deep love for California's mountains, deserts and beaches; it's all good!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We love the wide open spaces and serenity of the desert. There's a lot to do in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley. We have a bias for outside activities, but there's tons of culture here, too, including fine arts and history museums, music and theater of many varieties.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the spaciousness and open floor plan of our house. We have big family reunions here every year. Even if you're the one fixing drinks or food (or cleaning up), you can see and hear everyone; you have a view into the dining room, living room, breakfast area, family room, and out through the windows and double French doors to the pool area. You're not stuck by yourself behind some swinging door into a kitchen; you can participate in everything. When you want to take a nap or have a private conversation, the bedrooms are off to the side and behind solid wood doors for quiet and privacy. We have a small deck off the back of the house that's a bit cooler and shadier than the pool area. We love our serene retreat in the desert!
