About the property

House, 4 bedrooms + convertible bed(s), 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Our property offers breathtaking mountain views and has just undergone a full renovation. Relax in the huge 84° heated pool or the 101° heated spa and watch over a hundred date palms sway in the breeze.

A wonderful safe haven for 2 or 3 families vacationing together with children, our home includes two master suites, two secondary bedrooms and a fully equipped office with a sleeper sofa. Best of all, our guests enjoy full access to the golf course and tennis courts at the Mission Hills Country Club.

Designed by renowned architect William Krisel, our home is exceptionally well located in between Palm Desert and Palm Springs. Everything that the communities have to offer is only minutes away, from world-class shopping, fine dining and cinemas to some of the best golf courses and hiking trails in Southern California.

Our goal with the renovation of our home was to furnish it with all of the luxuries that people enjoy in their own homes. The kitchen is open to the family room and dining area. There are stainless appliances from high-end manufacturers, and the new granite countertops are echoed in the bathrooms. In the family room, an attractive stone fireplace creates an inviting ambiance on cooler evenings, and there is a 42' LCD flat screen Sony Bravia T.V. with H.D. cable and premium channels.

The family room is filled with light by sliding glass doors, which open to a furnished patio area. A relaxing and comfortable venue for cocktail hour, the patio offers peaceful sunset views as well as plenty of room for grilling or dining outside. Bohemian style blinds and drapes allow for plenty of privacy, and both of the masters offer new king-size beds. One of the master suites includes a Whirlpool tub, one of the secondary bedrooms includes a new queen-size bed, and the other one features two new twin-size beds.

All of the bedrooms offer new 38' flat screen TVs and have been professionally decorated with new furniture and new designer, high thread count linens. For the business owner, the office offers high-speed Wi-Fi, a telephone with free local and long distance, and a sleeper sofa. Additional highlights include a three ceiling fans throughout the house and new landscaping.

With our prime location in a gated community nearby 'The River,' a hotspot with shopping, restaurants and cinemas, as well as downtown Palm Springs and famous El Paseo Drive, which is known by some as the Beverly Hills of the desert, our home embodies the charm and class of the high-end Old Hollywood era. After taking advantage of all of the amenities provided by Mission Hills Country Club, and Tamarisk Country Club, the place where people like Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and the Annenbergs spent their vacations, we think you’ll want to make this an annual vacation.

Mission Hills is a private club known for its unparalleled golf, tennis, and fitness center. One of the most prestigious clubs in the Coachella Valley, its first-rate facilities make it a world class country club. Mission Hills Country Club continues to grow in the service and amenities that are offered to its members and their guests.

This resort-like feeling of our community offers new desert landscaping with custom designed night lighting. Extremely well manicured grounds with full time gardeners. When you step outside the door, you will feel like you're in a tropical paradise! We would like to welcome you to our little slice of heaven.

Celebration of Life!

  • 5 of 5

My dad rented this great property for him to stay in with his 4 children, 2 of whom live in Texas, 1 in the LA area, and 1 (me) from Florida. We all came together to celebrate the life of my uncle, who passed away in January. Not only was this the perfect layout for our family, but also for our cousins and aunt to come and visit us, play games around the table, sit outside and talk, etc. It is located in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. We took a morning to walk over to tour the spectacular models down the street, took the Palm Springs Aerial Tram one afternoon, did a beer tasting downtown at Coachella Valley Brewing Company, took a hike at Indian Canyon Hiking Trails with a very fun and knowledgeable guide named Darrell Eisman (highly recommend), visited the graves of Frank Sinatra and Sonny Bono, and many other memorable things! The house was a perfect spot to call home base and we would definitely recommend it, as well as choose it again, to anyone. Thank you!

Great Home. Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a girls' golf trip and it was perfect! Tracy and John were great and responded right away to every email and phone call before and during our stay. The home was easily spacious enough for 8 women. John was awesome and gave us an initial tour of the home and made sure we had everything we needed for the week. We loved the big pool and the beautiful morning and evening views of the palm trees and mountains. The location was great too! Thanks John and Tracy!

This property was exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Tracy and John, the owners, were so helpful every step of the way. They were so nice and really cared that we had a good time. The property was perfect for us and more than lived up to the description. We felt so at home we did not want to leave. It has a great location and the layout of all the rooms made it easy to let everyone have their own space. VERY comfy beds!

Great find !

  • 5 of 5

Five friends and I stayed at this VRBO this past week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. John and Tracy were very welcoming and hospitable . The grounds are meticulously groomed , beautiful pool area. The house is comfortable and well equipped. Our favourite thing was sitting on the patio in the mornings with our coffee/ breakfast and watching the glorious sunrises !

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! The entire house was spotless and the floor plan was perfect. And what a view!! Sunrise off the patio was spectacular. The owners made us feel very welcomed and were there to offer places to visit and restaurants to try. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the Palm Springs area!!
