Very nice homes
The Montage homes were fantastic. Stayed 4 Days with 12 golfing buddies and we could not of been happier with the accommodation. The cooking facilities and awesome pool patio had us cooking in instead of going out.
We’ll stay here again.
Thank you for sharing your feelings on our two neighboring homes! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the outdoor Kitchens and Bar at the houses. The Owners really spent a good amount of money on making those spaces extraordinary.
We look forward to hosting your Golf Group again!

An experience like no other! Fantastic.
Amazing. More than we expected. Diana was terrific. Flexible, down to earth and overall accommodating. The property is very special. Clam, inviting and stocked with everything you can think of. We had 8 kids with us... games, dogs, Volleyball, horses, large lawn area, pool, hot tub etc. kids were entertained from the minute we got there!!! Of course no one wanted to leave. Will be back again next year. Thank you Diana for an amazing long weekend. We greatly appreciate your attention to detail :).
I have never written a review before, but I definitely had to for this. I came here with a group of friends to celebrate my 40th birthday. I knew it would be nice from other reviews, but i did not know how amazing it would really be! From the moment we arrived, Steve greeted us and helped to show us around the property. There were so many great things about the weekend; the beautiful house and it's decor, the comfortable beds (even the sheets were super nice and I usually wouldn't have noticed that so much), the ridiculously awesome kitchen, and that is just the inside. The outdoor amenities were beyond perfect! The pool lights up at night, creating a fun outdoor vibe, the bar is like you're at a resort, and so is everything else. Even the outdoor seating areas were so nice and beautiful. And then there were the horses!!! Beautiful Arabian horses and some were just a few months old and so adorable to look at. The dogs, Double and Trouble are so cute that you might want to take them home. The people who worked there were beyond kind and helpful and, along with the owners, were ready to lend a hand or take care of anything at a moments notice. We even had flash floods (only for about a half hour each day) on both days of our stay (and this is an extremely rare occasion and i know because I live within a couple hours, and it maybe rains in Palm desert all of a few times per year) but even that just felt kind of fun and like an adventure. We all stayed outside and just enjoyed how beautiful it was, all while having fun. I cannot say enough about the property or Diana and Steve and their hospitality. Thank you guys for making my 40th Birthday Celebration the best!!!!
Unparalleled vacation experience!
To start - the pictures DO NOT do Villa Sereno justice. It is even more beautiful in person! From the moment the private gates open you feel like you are in an oasis. This is such a unique property, you have the horses in the pastures surrounding you, yet you have all of the privacy you could ever want.
I booked Villa Sereno for my bestfriend's bachelorette party. With a party of 15 girls, we all slept comfortably in the beautifully decorated house and casita. The house is fully stocked with anything you could want - down to pool floats! From the very beginning Diana and Steve were unbelievably pleasant to work with. I let Diana know that I wanted to have a chef cook us dinner and brunch, and she handled the entire production - down to helping me decide on menus. Chef Maria Leon and her team are AMAZING!!
Between Diana and the entire ranch staff, we truly felt like we were at a 5* resort! By the time we left, all 15 girls were trying to figure out a reason to come back. This property is great for a girls trip, family trip and more! We will DEFINITELY be back.
amazing family vacation!!!
If you are looking for an amazing family vacation, this is your place!!! Steve and Diana are the most amazing host and hostess you could ask for. Nothing is left for you to do except show up. The house, the grounds, the amenities are more than you could hope for. We have gone two years now for Thanksgiving week and the grandkids were already talking about when can we go back....which we are planning on doing fo a threepeat this year!!! We have an age range from 2 to 70 and everyone has the best time ever!!!
I can't say enough good things about Villa Sereno!!! If you are thinking of having a family vacation or a girls/guys trip make the call....you will love it!!
