BIGHORN VIEW ESTATE

Your Vacation has been hard-earned so don't waste it by staying somewhere that doesn't have everything! Nothing is worse than getting somewhere only to find that you are miles away from the attractions you want to enjoy and spending half your time in the back of a cab. Or worse yet, spending extra money at the Spa or Hotel because you don't have a hot-tub or quiet place to relax in your room. Bighorn View Estate is a one-acre Private Estate that has so much to do, you may never leave. But if you choose to, you are within walking distance to some of the best Restaurants and attractions the Desert has to offer.

At Bighorn View Estate you can play tennis on your own private tennis court, and you won't get 'blown away' by a sandy desert Scirocco. That's because the Magnesia Falls Cove is one of the few coves protected from the wind on 3 sides by the lovely San Jacinto Mountains. Take a swim in the private swimming pool, or relax in your secluded hot-tub, resting just outside your Master Bedroom. Don't forget, you have a full kitchen, so maybe staying in for the night and pay-per-viewing a movie is the way to go. If you choose to invite some friends over, there is no better place to entertain. Guests can be screened at your own Private iron gates. Then you can greet them as they come up the 25 foot wide stairway to the Estate entrance. Try that at your Hotel!

And if you decide to go out, try a leisurely walk under the stars down to the River Shops and Restaurants. The newest and most beautiful outdoor attraction Rancho Mirage has to offer, boasting Restaurants, shopping, and movie theaters. In fact, there are over 50 amazing restaurants located within a 1mile radius of Bighorn View Estate. 91 Restaurants in a 3mile radius. There is no better location to be in all the Desert.

Don't have regrets after your next vacation, you have worked too hard for it. Don't spend half the vacation getting lost on Cab rides. Forget the yucky public pool at the hotel and over-priced room service. Do it right and you will have the best experience possible at Bighorn View Estate!

P.S. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, use the Bighorn View Estate for your next Family Reunion, Group meeting, or Girls Getaway! Compared to renting a block of rooms at a local hotel, it can end up costing about half the price, and yet has so much more to offer!

Happy Vacationing!

About The Owner

I have spent half my life in the Desert and half in beautiful Santa Barbara. I currently live in Santa Barbara with my lovely wife and three boys. Life is always interesting with a full house and 'getting away' to the Desert is a great way to 'recharge the batteries'. The kids love it down there and Grandma loves the fact that her Grandkids are in town quite frequently now. After 20 years as a Financial Advisor, I have been blessed with the ability to buy this 'one-of-a-kind' Estate.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Deserts

It has taken 20 years but I have finally arrived back in Rancho Mirage, just one block away from the home I grew up in! I was born in Rancho Mirage and spent many Birthdays as a kid at Bighorn View Estate, as my best friend lived there and had the same Birthday as I did. When the Estate came up for sale, it was clearly Destiny, and I had to buy it. I hope you can share in the enjoyment my family has had there over the years.

Happy Vacationing!

What makes this house unique

Bighorn View Estate has all the amenities I need to enjoy doing my favorite things. Wake up and swim laps in the pool. Head out for an amazing hike up The Magnesia Falls. If I am lucky, see a few Bighorn Sheep on the ridge. Later in the day, a 'friendly' game of Doubles Tennis on our tennis court....Then its cocktail hour. Sit out on the back patio and watch the sun set slowly over the beautiful mountains...Head inside and Pay-per-view a Classic movie and then jump in the hot tub and relax. Order take out or BBQ on the grill. What a great way to end the day! Oh yeah, the central location is perfect. Just 15 minutes from La Quinta and 15 minutes from Palm Springs and Palm Springs Airport!

50th Birthday - Celebrating Life with Family & Friends & created memories that will last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you!!!

We couldn't have picked a better property or property managers to work with... Rocio & Josh... In my corporate life it is all about the details & I must say that you surpassed my expectations with your thoughtfulness, follow-up, & encouragement that the weather would cooperate for the "Big Event". This was a destination Vacation surprise for my family & closest friends. The accommodations are perfect for a blended event. Everyone had their own large space and private bathroom. The BigHorn gives you the feeling you are home. The property is very comfortable, clean, updated, & conveniently located to all the Desert has to offer. We all shared a wonderful experience here & can't stop talking about it. Our guests @ the BigHorn were treated to daily surprise events that left them guessing. One evening we hired a gourmet chef that was able to prepare a meal to die for from this beautiful kitchen while the Musician that we hired played keyboards & belted out Frank Sinatra tunes from the Beautiful Living room. This home exudes the feeling of the Rat Pack Days! But to save the best part for last is the main reason why we rented this perfect home. On Saturday night Rain or Shine the "Big Event" was going to happen @ the BigHorn. We had a 7 piece Carlos Santana tribute band entertain 75 guests while guests dined, drank, cheered, & tried their luck @ the Roulette & Black Jack tables. The original plan from day 1 was to utilize the tennis court but mother nature had other plans. We were able to shift things around & had everything indoors with the Band (that was loud enough to wake the neighborhood) play on the covered patio. "It was Perfect" The home flows well for a big event. In the desert you cannot have live entertainment in most of the desert cities. Rancho Mirage is unique in this sense that it is allowed but permits are required. Rocio did it all! She worked with City Hall for several weeks & made it all happen. The BigHorn View Estate & team deserve a 10+ - Details Details Details..... you didn't miss a thing!

Thank you for making my 50th an awesome memory!

i honestly don't know where to start.

  • 5 of 5

Best family gathering place, ever. Large bedrooms with spacious bathrooms. Outside patio's for everyone. Tennis court that three generations battled it out on. Kitchen, more than adequate. Spa was a welcome start of the morning and a end to the evening. As the family of of 14 dispersed, we all said "When can we come back". Thank You, Thank you..It was a 10 star home and holiday

Tennis trip that won't soon be forgotten!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! We had 5 families (1 in each bedroom) staying here and we never felt like we were on top of each other! The home is beautiful with every last detail thought of! The owners answered all of my emails immediately and Donna (the woman who met us there and showed us around) was so welcoming!!

We enjoyed and used every aspect of the house. The tennis court with an amazing view! The pool and hot tub, the grill. Indoors we were either gathered around the extra large TV or the chess table while listening to music on the speaker system!! We couldn't be happier and we will definitely be back!!

Big Horn beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this amazing property. From start to finish the owners were so easy to deal with and accommodating. The house itself is lovely and very spacious and the pool and tennis court were a great perk. There are several large common spaces and the bedrooms are also large and well appointed. The Kitchen is the smallest,charming room that functioned very well and was well equipted-all the basics and then some! Everything was updated and user friendly.The house is well located in Rancho Mirage-close to parks, shopping, restaurants, the zoo, walking paths. We can't say enough about the whole rental experience that worked so well for our multigenerational gathering. Thankyou to the owners for facilitating such a great experience!

Perfect for Our Group

  • 5 of 5

We needed two homes close together for 6 adults and 8 kids participating in a local triathlon. 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids) stayed at BIGHORN and the rest at another home down the street. The reality is that the entire group spent most of our spare time, other than sleeping, at BIGHORN. The home was immaculate and the tennis courts gave a bunch of beginner tennis players with a memorable experience. Bedrooms are as advertised, home was roomy and the pool, hot tub fit the bill. Easy to go for a hike up the mountain and more.

Great customer service from the owner and the owner's mother and father who live in the area and greeted us upon arrival to go through everything. Small tip: Ask for the portable light that is stored on property unless you are good at BBQing in the dark. Lifetime experience for our kids! Would definitely return.Thank you
