This is a perfect desert escape and offers the best of both worlds---a quiet residential neighborhood, within walking distance to El Paseo, the most fashionable street in the desert.

The gourmet kitchen has a center island with eating area, granite counters, and comes fully equipped with everything you may need to create wonderful meals or BBQ. The family room has a gas fireplace, wet bar with seating area, and looks out at your very private back yard. This south facing yard has a hot tub, a large pool with a Palapa thatched roof over the swim up bar and outdoor kitchen area, which creates a tropical paradise feeling. There is a covered patio, just off the kitchen, equipped with a fan and misters for those hot afternoons and evenings.

This home offers seclusion and comfort, just minutes away El Paseo and the Living Desert.

About Lynda Wright

We are a Canadian couple that fell in love with the Coachella climate and bought our home away from home. We decided on South Palm Desert because of it's central location and this location has less winds than most of the other areas in the Valley.

Lynda Wright purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynda Wright chose Palm Desert

We were entranced with this spacious layout of the main areas of the house and its very private south facing yard.

The house looks out on the pool area and has a large

covered patio, which is perfect for dining or just relaxing. The patio is

equiped with lights, ceiling fan and misters for those hot afternoons and evenings.

What makes this house unique

This house offers the best of both worlds, a great residential neighborhood and just steps away from some of the best shopping, dining and cultural activites in the Coachella Valley.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful 10 days with some of our kids and grandchildren. The house was stocked well beyond our expectations and the owners were more like hosts checking in with us and attending quickly to any requests or needs. I would definitely rent this property again.

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days at this beautiful rental home and it was without question the nicest house we've ever rented. The owner, Lynda is so thoughtful and kind. She recommended restaurants and activities and even had snackies and a welcoming cocktail for us when we arrived! The house has everything you could possibly ask for. We would rent this lovely home again in a heartbeat. Thank you Lynda, for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Absolutely wonderful experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, this is by far the best rental home experience I have ever had. The owners obviously take pride in this home and provide a well-cared for property, exactly as described, and serviced in a kind and caring way. Linda and Hart, the property owners, could not be more lovely. Lindo both calls and emails prior to arrival, leaves a well documented book about the property and surrounding area and even provided us a welcome amenity at check-in, like the finest hotels and resorts do. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and the ktchen is well marked an fully stocked-for both indoor and outdoor dining. We loved this property so much during our week here that I contacted the owner's the day after we left to book an even longer stay here in 2015. This property is perfect for couples, families, seniors, short, anyone looking to get away to a fantastic property owned by gracious hosts!!!!!

Best vacation rental - EVER

  • 5 of 5

This was our 9th summer vacation in the desert and the best rental, ever. We've rented three previous properties and stayed in hotels, so we have a lot with which to compare. The owner (Linda) is very responsive via email and phone. I emailed her to ask if there was a crockpot in the kitchen and she asked her local rep to bring one over. It was waiting when we arrived.

The home is BETTER than the pictures. Very clean, very comfortable. We stayed for 10 days and left only to do a bit of grocery shopping. VERY relaxing. The neighbors were even friendly. I needed an adjustable wrench (to tighten a drippy misting system) and a neighbor across the street brought one over at the owner's request.

BBQ works great. Pool is cleaned twice a week. Ice machine on the fridge is awesome (doesn't taste like freezer ice). There are ceiling fans everywhere. The HUGE shower is great. Lots of room to relax. And a well-stocked library if you run our of things to read.

We booked another 10 days for 2015 before leaving.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property, which was exactly as described. It was all very clean, well-maintained and comfortable. Everything (swimming pool, appliances, washer and dryer, nat gas BBQ, garage door opener etc.) was in excellent working order. Lots of kitchen tools and plates and glasses etc., and a full complement of pots and pans. We thought the property's layout was ideal, with a beautiful master room. We felt at home right away and loved the pool. Judith and her husband were terrific and attentive to our needs.

The location in Palm Desert was excellent and there were numerous and ample shopping opportunities in the area. We especially liked the nearby El Paseo. Overall, a great place to stay in Palm Desert.

Sure we will come back
