About Robert Nieto

Los Angeles based entrepreneur with multiple business and a design firm in West Los Angeles.

Robert Nieto purchased this villa in 1994

Why Robert Nieto chose Palm Desert

This house was built in 1959 and was one of the original homes on Shadow Mountain Drive. We loved the high ceiling in the living room and fireplace and the windows of glass overlooking the manicured lawns. We also loved that the bedrooms are on one wing of the house and the entertainment area is on the other side so it allows for people to rest and relax or drink and enjoy. The property allows for beautiful long walks and there are mountain views from all sides of the property. We loved walking to El Paseo and the incredible amounts of shopping in this beautiful community.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning home, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time here and it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The house is well equipped and has very good air conditioning. Very comfy beds. The pool was a welcome relief from the hot desert sun. The house is in a great location, very close to El Paseo.

Once again we can't wait to return!

Classic Palm Desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

Location: Excellent. Easy access to the 10 freeway. Very close to El Paseo drive for world class shopping. Whole Foods market also just a few minutes away to stock up on food

House: Classic and beautiful mid-century retreat. Well stocked. Immaculate. Comfortable beds. Excellent showers. The highlight for us was the backyard. Great shaded patio with top notch furniture. Wonderful pool.

Host: Robert was very responsive to all communications. Clearly has a lot of pride of ownership in his property as well.

Of all of the rental houses I have stayed in, this was a favorite. Highest recommendation.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Robert's house is lovely and he was very accommodating given our short turn time between booking and staying at his home. While we experienced a day or so of the ONLY! rain in Palm Desert, we still spent most of our time in the beautiful backyard at the pool. The house is very well equipped with extremely comfortable beds, quality linens and a well stocked kitchen. Many thanks, Robert - for providing a perfect backdrop for a terrific long weekend in the Desert!

Beautiful, Well Appointed House

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous rental property, very close to El Paseo, which is the desert’s main commercial street with popular restaurants and high end shops. The Living Desert (garden, zoo, hiking) is very close as well.

The house is not new but is very well maintained and very well furnished – extremely comfortable. We had a couple of rainy evenings but were delighted to entertain in the lovely living room complete with fireplace.

The kitchen came well equipped – even had formal dishes for entertaining! There were loads of towels and extra bed sheets and there was a working washer/dryer in the garage. The lovely pool was properly heated and the outdoor furniture was perfect for enjoying the sun.

Robert Nieto provided us with amazing service. I would highly recommend this property. We will definitely return.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The property is simply amazing. Its probably the best stocked rental home we've ever stayed in, equipped with everything you could possibly wish for.

The house is beautifully decorated, the garden and pool area are stunning and very well maintained and it's so peaceful!

You can walk to El Paseo easily.

Robert is a very charming and graceful host who is very accommodating and responds very quickly to any queries.

We booked as a treat for my "big" birthday and it didn't disappoint!

We would love to stay here again one day and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful home.

Amazing House, Great Pool and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the home, and it was very close to nearby restaurants and shopping locations. The pictures don't do justice to just how spacious the interior is. Perfect for a family getaway and outdoor bbq / pool activities. Would highly recommend!
