About Scott Shanstrom

I grew up in Montana and several friends were involved with and owned dude ranches, historical resorts and guide services - I guided fly fishing on the Yellowstone River through High School and College. I've always liked the idea of travelers coming from all corners to experience and share wonderful places. In addition, I’ve traveled extensively for work and have stayed in a wide variety of accommodations, making note of what I appreciate and look for in accommodations which I work to provide in my vacation rental properties.

We have had a vacation home in Rancho Mirage for several years and each time we had to head back to the Pacific Northwest, we found it more and more difficult to leave the desert and all that it so famously offers. Fairly recently, the opportunity arose to locate to the Desert as our main residence. I liked the idea of developing properties as vacation homes for clients to enjoy, but be able to come and go without having to deal with and worry about maintenance, opening & closing the vacation home, managing services, and all of the ongoing expenses of owning a vacation home. Come, enjoy, relax, and leave everything to us and we'll keep the home ready for your next visit! Worry Free!!

Scott Shanstrom purchased this house in 2011

Why Scott Shanstrom chose Rancho Mirage

After much looking and comparisons, we chose Rancho Mirage, and specifically the Tamarisk Country Club area, for our vacation home due to its impeccable reputation for its safety, elegance, sophisticated yet relaxed lifestyle, a stunning setting and this neighborhood’s protection from the valley winds. We wanted a home easy to live in that was conducive to indoor- outdoor living & entertaining. In addition, we were looking for maximum privacy along with a quiet setting away from all main arterial traffic noises. We were very fortunate to find all of this along with the added bonus of an enormous lot that adds to the exclusivity and enjoyment of very private indoor-outdoor desert living at its best.

What makes this house unique

This home has been remodeled and set up exclusively as a vacation feeling like you are camping out in someone elses home but instead your very own private resort....without all the people....I live just down the street - we love it here!

Thank goodness I did my research and found Scott. I have been using VRBO for 5years and I have always had great places to stay. This topped them all. Not only was the house beautiful but it had everything we needed, the pool was amazing and Scott was responsive to our needs. Thank you and I would highly recommend staying at Villa de Blanca!

The property was clean, very quiet and private. The surrounding neighborhood was lovely

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and has everything you need to relax in the desert. The private pool and spa provide your own oasis. The location in Palm Desert enables easy access to Palm Springs, Palm Desert and La Quinta. Restaurants and grocery stores are within 5-15 minute drive depending on your destination. Scott is a gracious host and is available if you have a question or an issue. This was our first trip the desert and we would definitely return for another stay.

Great place to stay for a month

  • 5 of 5

After looking at photos and talking to Scott we decided to stay at Villa de Blanca for a month. It was January and the weather was better than could be dreamed of. We weren’t disappointed. Everything felt like Home from the moment we walked in. The bed and pillows were super comfortable,as was the living room. The kitchen had all of the necessities. The patio was spacious and perfect for breakfast and lunch. The pool,which we heated ,was was taken care of. Perfect for a swim. The hot tub was great for our sore muscles after a day of hiking.

Scott was totally available for questions at a moments notice.

Tamarisk Country Club addition is a very quiet and safe neighborhood and highly sought after due to the natural protection from the majority of desert winds. The night desert sky has been thoughtfully preserved with very few street lights to showcase the amazing star viewing. The Tamarisk addition offers very quiet streets for morning and evening walks (or both!). A really great neighborhood for touring via bikes and beautiful landscaping and many architecturally recognized homes. From this home and neighborhood there is easy access to Palm Springs Airport, groceries, shopping and restaurants and the annual Coachella Valley events. This home is centrally located between downtown Palm Springs and Palm Desert - just blocks off of highway 111.
