About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Sip your morning coffee and take in the majestic panoramic mountain and golf course views. This casual, yet elegant, 3400 square foot home is situated behind the PGA West Legends private gate and is located on the 15th Hole of the Nicklaus Tournament Course. The home features spacious living areas with open ceilings and expansive use of travertine and granite. The luxurious views, lush landscaping and desirable south facing yard complete one of the finest areas in outdoor living. Relax in the private salt water pool and spa with no worries of a stray golf ball. This house is totally out of play!

The gourmet kitchen features granite countertops, double ovens, gas cook top, large pantry and is stocked with all amenities that you would need. The dining table seats eight comfortably and an additional six can be seated at the counter.

Each of the four bedrooms has its own full bath, plasma TV, IPod docking station and a plush pillow top bed. The master suite has a huge jetted tub, walk in shower, large closet with built-ins and its own entrance to the pool and spa area. One of the bedrooms is located in the private casita with its entrance off the courtyard area.

The great room invites you to enjoy its comfortable oversized leather furniture, 54' Plasma HDTV with DVD, surround sound and IPod dock. You can even find a selection of DVD's in the cabinet. Two walls of double glass doors open up to the golf course, mountains and pool on one side and the private courtyard with a fountain and fire pit sitting area on the other.

There are over 120 golf courses in the Palm Springs area, many of which are public. You can golf at five PGA West golf courses including the Nicklaus tournament course. The Nicklaus course was specifically designed by Jack himself in hopes of bringing multiple tournaments and the PGA Qualifying (Q) School tournament to PGA West.

You will enjoy your vacation in the comfort of this home that was completely redecorated with all new furnishings in late 2009.

About Rich Sharpe, Owner

We love the La Quinta area and have traveled to this valley for many years. After many trips we found ourselves drawn to the PGA West area where the views seemed to stand out among the others. We looked long and hard for a beautiful mountain view home that was completely out of all ball play!!! No balls will ever disturb your stay hanging out in the pool or on the deck. Our over sized pool is south facing and gives us full sun all day in the back yard and patio in the winter months. We welcome you to stay with us in La Quinta and watch the ducks and white cranes fly over the lakes and into the red evening sky . We think you will fall in love with it too!

Rich Sharpe, Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why Rich Sharpe, Owner chose Deserts

We have been vacationing in La Quinta and PGA West for the past 15 years. We have searched several years before buying till we could find the perfect home that fit all our needs. This home has one of the most beautiful views in all of PGA West. Overlooking an Island Green surrounded by lily pads and birds and a large lake running along side the 16th fairway reflecting the Santa Rosa Mountains, yet never in the line of a stray golf ball!. That's very important to us. We always wanted a large lot with a lot of privacy on the side yards. Its hard to find all we wanted but as you will see this home has it all! We are completely fenced or walled in around the property and our back and side yards are expansive and look out over the mountains. You will love lounging around the fire ring with your family or the outdoor fireplace entertaining in the evening, you will see it's so relaxing.

What makes this house unique

You will never need to go anywhere. Everything is here to entertain you and provide you with all the comforts and pleasures of being home while at a vacation resort!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Richard, Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful home. It was the perfect place for our 60 year old's (golfing/couples event). We had a wonderful time golfing, cooking and enjoying the ambiance in your gorgeous backyard.

Your place will definitely be one that we will come back to. Thanks again!! We loved our time there. A true Five Star Home.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

House was one of the best we've stayed in. Rich was the best at resolving any problems we had. All bedrooms were comfortable and private. Outside area was great for hanging out with a cocktail or just floating in the pool. We liked it so much we booked for next year already! Thanks Rich and Carol for letting us spend time in your beautiful home.

Fabulous Desert Home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at their fabulous home and we can't wait to go back! It is even more beautiful than the pictures online. Every room is spacious, well appointed and comfortable.

there were eight adults staying in the house so everyone had their own bedroom and bath. We cooked meals in several times and were impressed at how well the kitchen accommodated 5 or 6 of us at one time. We found everything we needed from cooking and serving utensils to spices in the cupboard.

The outdoor covered patio was the popular gathering spot both during the day when it was too hot to be in the sun and in the evening after dinner. The pool is great, we really enjoyed the umbrella mounted over the baja step!

Everything about this home is wonderful, you may never want to leave, we hardly did!!

5 every way!

  • 5 of 5

All we could say was "wow" when we saw your home. It was beautiful on the website, but even more beautiful in person. All the details and extras were very appreciated. My husband was hoping to play a game of Cribbage and lo and behold there is a brand new set in the first cupboard he opened! You made his day. Thank you, once again, for sharing your wonderful home. We will have many fond memories from our stay.

Owner's Response: Kathy, thanks for all the kind comments. You had one of the hottest weeks of the summer and your temperatures were well over 108 degrees on some days. So we were so glad to hear you had such a wonderful time in our pool and outdoor shaded areas as well as kept cool in the home. We look forward to you staying with us again. Thanks, Rich and Carol
