About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom on golf course with stunning view of San Jacinto Mtns

Escape to this amazing retreat right on the Escena golf course. This is the largest backyard in the Escena community, with unobstructed views of the Escena golf course and the San Jacinto Mtn range. It is perched overlooking 4 intersecting holes of the course, with sweeping fairway views.

Enjoy the huge pool with hot tub and baja deck, complete with pool floaties and pool toys. There is an enormous outdoor fire pit, as well as a bar and BBQ station, for amazing outdoor entertaining. Several umbrellas are available to use in the baja deck, in the bar and in the outdoor table. If the temps get cool after the sun drops behind the mountains, there is a propane space heater for use.

The landscaping contains many varieties of cactus and citrus trees that produce oranges, grapefruit, limes and lemons for you to enjoy during your stay. The desert landscaping is highlighted by the superb outdoor lighting that is programmed to turn on and off.

The pool and spa can be easily controlled with a handheld device that allows you to change the temperature, turn on the spa jets, and turn on the pool light to an array of colors. There are also outdoor 'glow balls' and 'glow cubes' to set outside for enhanced entertainment, and even use in the pool.

Inside you will find high quality finishes including travertine tile throughout the home, a glass backsplash that continues through the entire kitchen and laundry room, high ceilings with modern ceiling fans, electric solar shades, high quality linens, indoor lighting with dimmers and stunning art work in keeping with the Palm Springs style. There are three flatscreen HDTV smart TVs with cable, an XBOX 360 with many different games, free wifi, and a portable sound system that will connect to your iPhone or iPod.

The kitchen is completely stocked with service for 12, lots of drinkware, shakers, pitchers, a blender, Keurig coffee maker as well as a drip coffee maker, and everything you could possibly need for a family or entertaining.

There are bath towels as well as well as pool towels for your use.

There are 3 bicycles (2 cruisers and one child's bike) that can be used to explore the neighborhood or take to the nearby Escena grill.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind home that you will want to come back to again and again with your family and friends.

About Eileen Gwinn

We purchased this home as a vacation home to escape the rainy weather of Seattle. We see it as our oasis in the desert, and we hope you will enjoy spending time in it as much as we do.

Eileen Gwinn purchased this house in 2013

Why Eileen Gwinn chose Palm Springs

We purchased this particular home because of it's large lot size overlooking double fairways on the Escena golf course. It is the largest lot in the neighborhood, does not have a fence blocking the beautiful views, and is perfect for outdoor entertaining.

What makes this house unique

The views of the sun dropping behind the San Jacinto mountain range at sunset are not to be beat!

We had another wonderful stay at this property. We returned after a stay last year. Eileen and Ryder were wonderful as usual. The home is comfortable and has everything you need. The views are stunning. Pool is great. We hope to return again. It’s my happy place!

This is the most beautiful home and view in Escena!

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views, beautifully furnished and well equipped home with everything you need or want! The pool, spa, fire pit and living room fireplace were highlights for us! This has to be one of the best homes in Escena.

Great location, super nice backyard

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this place. Close to Palm Springs restaurants & shopping. On the golf course, so nice views of the golf course and mountains. Still had privacy from the golf course because the backyard is about 10 feet higher than the tee boxes. Very clean & modern single story house. Security gates to this development made me feel safe.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, most spectacular views in the valley, large well appointed modern and clean home with every amenity you could ask for. Eileen was easy to work with super accommodating and super responsive. The only reason I hesitate to give a good review is that you might book it when we want it. We already reserved next year. Thank you Eileen and Ryder. We had a fabulous stay.
