This 5000 square foot, completely renovated home has everything you could possibly want for a large family gathering. Six (6) bedrooms sleep 12 with 5 bathrooms. Four Bedrooms are in the main house with the other 2 bedrooms in two large detached casitas. With all that privacy, you have the perfect house for a multi-generational family holiday. All five King beds, the Queen bed and the Queen sleeper sofa are fitted with pillow-top mattresses and luxury Trina Turk linens. You have a large flat screen television and HD box in every bedroom as well as the Family Room, Living Room, and exercise room (9 TVs in total)! With a gorgeous pool, hot-tub, Tournament-quality pool table, outdoor ping-pong, foosball, x-box, and club-quality exercise equipment, there is always something to keep you and your guests entertained. You will never hear 'we're bored' from your children at Twin Palms.
The huge south-facing backyard has a 30x15 foot heated salt-water pool and spa/hot-tub. We provide 12 cushioned loungers and 4 pool floats so that there is room for everybody around the pool. With 4 stainless steel commercial grade shade umbrellas and California misters around the pool, the backyard is completely enjoyable for everybody even in the hottest heat of the summer! The California misters cool the temperature by 20 degrees! Just imagine yourself relaxing in the sun around the pool, and taking in the mountain views while listening to your favorite music on the Sonos sound system. Don't forget your ipod - just plug it in and have your playlist piped throughout both the house and the backyard. We just installed a gorgeous Restoration Hardware natural gas firepit with plenty of deep-seating for taking in the mountain views or staring up at the stars!
The large Weber stainless grill and fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to have a wonderful family meal. You can dine in the outdoor dining courtyard under the stars with beautiful amber lighting, lush plantings and music from our 5-zone Sonos sound system. All of these amenities make Twin Palms the perfect home for an extended family get-away.
In the winter, you can enjoy a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice every morning directly from our delicious Citrus Grove! If you're visiting in the early spring, the beautiful fragrance of the orange blossoms from our citrus grove or the sweet smell of Sweet Acacia alone is worth the trip! The Citrus grove is situated close to the outdoor dining area so that you can enjoy the fragrance for hours over dinner in the heated dining courtyard.
RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT
We accept reservations through VRBO on-line. In order to reserve, we require 50% of the total cost of the reservation along with receipt of a completed and signed rental agreement. We are not able to hold any reservations pending receipt of funds or the contract as our properties book up very rapidly. Please be advised that VRBO processes payments through Europe and as a result, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee.
Please be advised that our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals book up rapidly and are most often booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our properties take approximately 5 hours to clean, and to wash, dry iron and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check in time is 5:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. We are rarely able to offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time due to the cleaning requirements. Therefore, if you wish to check-in prior to 5pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to do so is to book the property for the prior night (assuming the property is available on that day) and then you can check in at any time after 5pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well (assuming it's available) and then you can check-out at your leisure prior to 11am the following day.
It is our priority to make your stay at our home as peaceful and enjoyable as possible. The Twin Palms Estate is located in a residential neighborhood where it is important to respect our neighbors. No outside noise is permitted after 10pm. No parking on the street. No events or parties are permitted. No additional persons permitted other than those listed in rental contract unless specifically authorized in writing by the owners. $1000-$5000 fines will be levied by the City for breaches of any by-laws. All fines plus an administration fee of $500/fine as well as any extra charges incurred will be deducted from the Damage Protection Deposit before any refund is issued. Twin Palms is subject to the Palm Desert Short Term Rental Rules. Please be advised that parties and excessive noise are strictly prohibited at Twin Palms El Paseo Estate. We expect our renters to treat the property and the neighbors with the utmost respect. Short-Term Rental Licence #33112.
Our Cancellation Policy is in essence as follows: if a guest cancels, we will refund up to 90% of the amount paid to date if we secure a replacement reservation. Given our high occupancy rates, we have provided significant refunds to the few guests who have had to cancel. Guests can also purchase separate cancellation insurance through VRBO directly. See our Rental Contract for the complete Cancellation Policy.
