About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Situated in the golfing community of Indian Palms Country Club, this quiet corner lot house offers ample outdoor and indoor living space.

Enjoy the sunshine and mountain views from a south facing rear yard overlooking a small lake, giving you the chance of a restful, quiet vacation. Because the house is not overlooking the golf fairway you do not need to worry about the frequent inconvenience of golf carts constantly passing by and also having to occasionally duck due to wayward golf shots.

A great place to relax by your own pool/spa and enjoy the (almost) non-stop sunshine.

The house offers 3 bedrooms (California King Master and two Queens), a family area, dining area and a den to relax in. In the Den we are able to offer a double sleeper sofa to accommodate 2 extra people if you wish, please note there is a small extra charge for this.

For your enjoyment by the pool we include use of a gas BBQ, a range of patio furniture and not forgetting of course pool noodles/inflatables. All bedding, linen and towels are supplied; we even have a couple of fine bone china English tea sets to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee from. Free WiFi is available, so bring along your tablet/laptop.

In the kitchen there is a gas range and oven, steamer, smoothie maker, toaster, regular filter coffee maker and cookware is also provided. Don't forget to bring your K-Cup pods for our Keurig coffee maker, we supply some for your arrival but given the hundreds of different types on offer you know which you like best!

Indian Palms Country Club offers 27 holes golf course, golf shop, restaurant & bar, tennis courts and a fitness center.

Very close by is the Empire Polo Club, home of the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals (see under 'Location'), also nearby is Old Town La Quinta with themed weekend markets and many fine restaurants. Within the Valley you will find many great golf courses, restaurants and shopping opportunities to choose from.

Only a 25 minute drive to the world famous city of Palm Springs - be sure not to miss the Thursday night street market. Indio is centrally located for many exciting tourist favorites including Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon and San Diego/Mexico. If you do not want to drive to Las Vegas for your gambling fun then there are many casinos in the Coachella Valley for you to enjoy using your gambling skills.

Please note all rates are valid until 03/31/2016, contact the owners for Coachella and Stagecoach quotes as normal rates do not apply.

About Michael Probert

Owners Michael and Linda live in England and try to spend as much time as possible at their home in Indio 'to us it's just a great place to relax and enjoy the almost constant sunshine'

Michael Probert purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Probert chose Deserts

Having travelled to California on many occasions to the usual visitor areas, almost by accident we stumbled upon the Coachella valley and fell in love with it instantly. The sun, shops, people and that feeling of being somewhere unique for us was very special.

What makes this house unique

Within easy reach of Los Angeles by car but also easily accessible from many parts of the US and Canada by flying into Palm Springs airport which is a short 30 minute drive from the house.

Being a south facing rear yard means you can spend all day in the sun by the pool, with only the shadow of a palm tree or two and the odd but very rare cloud, and no house shadow blocking out the sunshine.

An Amazing Thanksgiving Holiday for All

  • 5 of 5

All Day Sunshine is so much better that the title, pictures, or property description. The home is amazing. Everything from check in (with Roger *so helpful & caring) to the decor, the overall comfort of the home/beds, kitchen utensils (Thanksgiving dinner), awesome pool/spa, etc.

Our combined family spent the 2016 Thanksgiving Holiday there and could not have been more pleased. In truth, it is hard to find any property (hotel or home) that can accommodate kids aged 18, 13, 9, 8 (& a dog)....however there was never a dull moment. Know that many pools in the desert are often shaded on winter afternoons (a main concern of mine) - but this pool was exactly 'All Day Sunshine', with sunshine on the deck until sunset.I have stayed at many properties (hotels/homes) in the desert, and this is the only one we will stay again. If you are looking for the perfect desert home, pool, and sunshine...this is it!

2016 Thanksgiving was our 1st 'combined' holiday, and one that will always conjure up great memories. Thanks Michael

Owner's Response: Mark. We are very grateful for such a glowing review, and so glad your family had such a successful get-together in our home. It was very important for us 12 years ago when we bought the house to have a back-yard that was south facing thereby 'All day sunshine' we try and keep the palms under control so that they provide some shade in the summer but not too much in the winter. Roger the house manager takes great pride in welcoming new guests and giving them the 'tour' and is a great asset to us. Thank you and we hope to see you the family and dog again in the future.

So Happy With Our Decision

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are familiar with Indian Palms as we have stayed in the timeshares there for years. I decided I'd like to try VRBO this year and boy are we glad I did. This house is so comfortable, amenities in abundance and location is wonderful. We hope to stay here again in the future. Between Michael, the owner, and Roger, the manager, all communication and responses were handled quickly and easily. Thanks for a wonderful week in the beauty of the desert.

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane for your lovely review, we are glad to you tried VRBO and chose our home. We try to make sure our house is a 'Home away from Home' and try to provide all the conveniences that most people would have in their own home, but the one thing that is almost always available and free is the sunshine. We would love you to stay with us again and hope to hear from you in the future

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I first reached out to Michael I felt as though my search for a weekend home had been solved. Coming from Maryland I was nervous about securing a place to stay, and Michael was responsive and friendly. Closer to my arrival date I was introduced to Roger, the house manager. Roger, thank you so much for taking the time to set up the house. We truly appreciate all of the hard work and hospitality. Thank you for letting me pick your brain about the area and the local history.

Michael and Linda, you have a beautiful home and it was an honor to be able to enjoy the comforts of a home for the 4 nights we were there. Michael, Linda and Roger, thank you again for everything and I hope to be back again next year!

All the best,

Bonsal

Owner's Response: Thank you Bonsal. Its always a difficult time to rent the house especially as we are so close to the Coachella festival site, sometimes festival goers can be a little 'boisterous' so its always good to find people who respect our home. We were very pleased to be able to host you and your party and we would certainly like to see you again whether it be for Coachella, oldchella or any other time. Thanks again. Michael and Linda

How soon is too soon to go back?

  • 5 of 5

Now, that is a serious question. How soon is too soon to go back? If it was up to myself and the people I was with, we would have returned the weekend next but of course there are these things called jobs that we all had to get back to.

From the first email, Michael was kind and accommodating. Some people say that you cannot sense a person's true tone through email but between the way he expressed himself, the openness to learning more about me and my family/friends, and sharing some of his own, stood out to me.

We worked together via email for months building up to our date of rental, you know, Coachella, a fairly well known festival in Indio. From quick responses, understanding, sharing tips and tricks, Michael was full of knowledge and was happy to help us.

Now the home. Could it have been a more ideal place for us? I don't think so.The location was perfect. We felt safe. We did not need anything that wasn't already at the house. I even donated a few more floating devices to Michael's collection for the renters. Hope you enjoy! The kitchen was the hub of all of our conversations before and after the festival. It was where we ate together as a family and talked about what our game plan was for that day. The hot tub outside was another spot for late night conversations, allowing us to relax our muscles and feet from walking nearly 15 miles earlier that day.

Roger, the property manager, was very sweet as well. He walked us through the home upon arrival, lives down the street, and was accessible via text or email for any questions. His dog was also a treat to see when he would stop by! This of course would make my day since I was missing my four legged family members too!

I could continue writing about each great feature of this house (another good thing, the rooms at the front of the home, you don't hear anything in the kitchen or outside by the hot tub. My mom appreciated that!) but I only have about 500 characters left, unfortunately. Each person that was with me shared how thankful, happy, and appreciative they were for the home and couldn't have imagined a better set up.

So hats off to you, Michael and your wife, for sharing your wonderful home with us. We hope to return next year for another Coachella. We all feel as though you both played a key role in making this all of our best Coachella yet and a tough one to beat for those who experienced Coachella for the first time this year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Anon for your glowing review, we do like to ensure that we are as cooperative and helpful as possible, it is what we would expect if we were renting a property far from home. Its always nice to get to know people if only by email, that way we can work to ensure their stay is more personalised and successful. The festival season is a very busy period for all and it is always a gamble as to who rents our house but it is a job made easier by getting to know your customer. In this case we are so grateful to have been able to host you and your party and there is no doubt in our mind as to the fact that we would love to have you return. Thank you so much again for your kind comments and for being such a friendly, amusing and completely outstanding guest. Michael and Linda

Clean, spacious house, beautiful patio, pool and Spa. Would definitely stay here ag

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Linda were very helpful and wonderful to work with. Staying at their beautiful home in the desert was so relaxing and made our vacation just perfect. Roger the property manager was also very helpful (there was a windstorm and debris in the pool) he came and cleaned the pool for us free of charge. Not only was the property clean and spacious, it also backs on to a beautiful ravine. The kitchen has loads of dishes/cutlery and one my personal favourites was they had sharp knives, making cooking a breeze. There are cleaning supplies as well that are included as well. This house has lots of open space and everything we needed to use worked well.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathleen. It was a pleasure to have you stay in our desert home, Roger told me how nice you all are. The views of the small lake make for a relaxing backdrop to our rear patio area coupled with the mountains in the distance and the best bit is no golfers driving past and no flying golf balls to worry about. So glad too that you appreciated our sharp kitchen knifes. Would be thrilled for you to return someday. Michael and Linda

Wonderful vacation home and stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults + 3 children) had a great time in this very comfortable and well taken care of home! The kitchen is big and we enjoyed cooking every day. The kids loved to play at the heated swimming pool. We really appreciated the manager calling us during our driving in the bad weather and waiting us at night. He walked through the home and showed us everything in the home. We highly recommend this home to anyone who is visiting Indio. Thank you again!
