About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Detached Unit (Property sleeps 8 comfortably)

This Mid Century Ranch gem sits on an estate sized lot nestled into one the most desirable neighborhoods in the area, Magnesia Falls Cove in Rancho Mirage/Coachella Valley. All amenities for desert relaxation are here. You will feel like you are in your own private desert retreat, but know that shopping, restaurants, spas, movie theaters, hiking trails, and golf can all be found within one mile of this property.

Enjoy complete privacy while lounging by the heated pool & jacuzzi in the backyard. Work on your tan, or relax in the shade of the patio that runs the length of the house. Practice your short game on our 5 hole putting green and chipping areas. Play horseshoes on our regulation length horseshoe pit. Maybe a game of bocci ball?

The main house has three bedrooms, two baths. The kitchen, library, and living room all share an open floor plan flowing into each other creating a communal environment great for entertaining family and friends. A fully furnished kitchen and bbq are available for all of your culinary endeavors. The detached Casita sits poolside surrounded by a private, sun drenched, backyard with captivating 360 degree mountain and valley views.

In the Main House the Master bedroom has its own bathroom and shower, walk in closet, and vanity. The main guest room has a King sized bed and the other guest room has 2 full size beds. Every room has a flat screen TV with cable. The Casita has a queen size bed, bathroom, TV, AC unit, and kitchenette.

In the evening gather around the fire pit or sit in the hot tub and enjoy the 360 degree view of the San Jacinto Mountains and Coachella Valley. Appreciate magnificent star gazing unobstructed by street lights or telephone poles.

Need a break from golf and lounging by the pool? The River is walking distance from the house and the acclaimed El Paseo shopping district is a short drive away. There are great hiking trails nearby for all levels of hikers. If your lucky you may spot a family of Bighorn Sheep, the symbol of Rancho Mirage.

For the Snowbirds. The large circular driveway connects to our large back gates to an area that can accommodate a '40 RV, with functioning clean out!

Look forward to hearing from you :)

PS: We are pet friendly on a case by case basis. There will be a pet cleaning fee added. Absolutely NO cats, sorry.

About The Owner

Both Dan & John are Los Angeles natives. Growing up in the small beach community of Manhattan and Redondo Beach Ca.

Dan is in real estate development and property management, while John works in the film industry. Going to the desert with our family and friends for a quick weekend get away has been therapeutic in so many ways. Book a weekend, a week, or even a month and see how this home and all its amenities can change your life :)

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Rancho Mirage

Our love of golf and the peaceful desert ambience drew us to this neighborhood. The property if far enough from the 111 to avoid traffic noise but close enough to walk to The River for dinner, drinks, or a movie. When we are not renting we are here golfing. hiking, and enjoying all the desert has to offer.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

The Perfect Oasis!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I could go on and about how awesome the Biskra house is but you really need to experience it for yourself. This house had everything you could imagine and then some. Pack your toothbrush,clothes and food and let the fun begin. We booked this oasis for our family vacation and the minute we opened the door we knew we had chosen the perfect place . We will definitely be back. The owner's Dan and John were both amazing and easy to deal with.

My friends and I stayed over for Stagecoach Festival and the house and property were spectacular!

The house is in great shape with really cool furnishings throughout!

Pool, hot tub, putting green and chipping areas are so much fun in addition to the fire and horseshoe pits added another level of fun.

Dan and John were great to deal with in every facet.

We will be back for sure!

Texas Girls Golf the Desert

  • 4 of 5

6 golfers from Austin selected The Palm Desert for a getaway. We chose the Biskra house primarily for the location, proximity to dining, golf and shopping and were Not disppointed. Dan and John's home is very comfortable. We wanted a home that was a reflection of place and it is -- lovely Mid Century Modern in a neighborhood with others of the same vintage. Our own mini Mid-Cent Mod Tour! We enjoyed the house, the outside gathering areas and ambience. We had a great time and would select this property again.

We did have a problem early in the stay and a call to the owners resulted in an appropriate and satisfactory solution. We are grateful to our hosts for their response and customer focused approach.

This rating is really a GOOD + but that option is not available. It would be Excellent if the linens and outside lounge cushions were upgraded. Yes, we know we are a bit picky but the other features of the house are already excellent.

Beyond Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

John and Dan's lovely home was exceptional from start to finish. During booking process loved chatting on the phone about the house and making sure it was a great fit for all. The house has every amenity and was close to everything we wished to do! Shopping, Joshua Tree National Park, Indian Canyons and the aerial tram are all close. The beds were comfy, the rooms well appointed. We had more than enough room for 4 adults and 2 teens. Enjoyed the pool, hot tub, horseshoes and putting green. Lovely meals grilled on the patio. Can't wait to come back! Thanks to Dan and John!!

Perfect Getaway Destination

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house exceeded expectations. You could spend the your entire vacation in the backyard and it wouldn't be boring. Great space, starting with the pool and hot tub, the putting green, horseshoe court, fire pit.... the list goes on.

Came here for 3 nights/4 days with golfing buddies and the location was perfect. The neighborhood is far enough off 111 for absolute quiet at night, but close enough to make it convenient for going out in Rancho, or a short drive to downtown Palm Springs.

The house + casita comfortably sleeps 8. The kitchen has all new appliances and the living room has a cool mid-century modern vibe.

We will be staying here again!

Great tranquil house. Lovely pool and jacuzzi. The house was clean and the bed was comfy.

The icing on the cake is the location, 1 minute from the River mall and shops.

You won't be disappointed.
