The City of Palm Springs ID#2891 – Perched above Palm Springs in an exclusive enclave, Villa Cahuilla boasts spectacular panoramic views of the city and surrounding desert mountains.

We recently finished several updates to the house that weren’t ready when the photos were taken… automated solar shades in the master suite, blackout blinds in additional guest bedrooms, huge outdoor daybed ottoman at pool, additional seating around the outdoor fire pits, and 2 large outdoor umbrellas around the pool.

Designed by celebrity architect Michael Mueller in 2013 with an homage to mid-century meets mission design, Villa Cahuilla is designed for private living and is now available for client’s appreciative of opulent amenities and materials not normally offered in a vacation home.

Nestled into the majestic San Jacinto mountains, Villa Cahuilla is a chic 4 bedroom, 3 bath oasis surrounding a luxurious heated pool that features 4 tranquil waterfall-fountains and offers completely unobstructed views of Palm Springs and the surrounding desert.

The private grounds boasts 4 separate outdoor fire features, ancient rock formations and stunning multi-tiered gardens that include a collective and mature cacti garden. Dine in the gardens at the outdoor dining table that seats 12, or belly up to the bar and BBQ beside the pool. The property also features an 8-person jacuzzi that is literally perched on the edge of the mountain; offering unobstructed views of Palm Springs and the surrounding desert mountains the jacuzzi’s own fire feature and multi-color mood lighting are indulgent complements to an evening of champagne and stargazing.

Pure luxury in amenities: Villa Cahuilla offers tranquil indoor-outdoor living with French doors that open the entire house to the pool, gardens, and unparalleled valley views. The living area features an 80” 3D plasma entertainment center and a dramatic stone fireplace. The master suite features it’s own stone fireplace and spa bath with twin basin sinks and raintree showers . Guest rooms include spa bath with huge soaking tub, raintree showers, plasma TVs, and large walk-in closets for long-term renters. Linens are sumptuous and unlike a typical vacation rental with plush Egyptian cotton bath and beach towels, luxury sheets, as well as extra blankets and comforters for those chilly nights. The modern gourmet kitchen offers 3 ovens including a convection oven for the chef, 4 burner gas stove, large-capacity dishwasher and custom cabinets with leather ball-stitched handles and white Caesarstone countertops. Indoor/Outdoor Wi-Fi completes the experience.

About Nick Bode

Architectural lover of exceptional properties. Reside in Los Angeles and New York City.

Nick Bode purchased this Villa in 2012

Why Nick Bode chose Canyon Corridor

This property was purchased because it was the most unique property I had ever seen in Palm Springs. The site is spectacular with 360 degree views while the privacy around the house makes for the perfect hideaway. The extensive and mature cacti garden are also truly unique.

What makes this Villa unique

Villa Cahuilla is remarkable because of the way in which architecture and landscape conjoin in this private desert retreat. The huge swimming pool with its waterfall-fountains, and luxurious jacuzzi perched above the valley offer the rejuvenation of a retreat unlike any other!

                                                                    A very special place

                                                                    bob D.

                                                                    I took two of my kids, my sister, her two kids and my mom to Villa Cahuilla for 4 nights before visiting LA. The house and grounds are absolutely outstanding! There was plenty of room for all, the design and decorating of the house is fantastic and the views are incredible from all rooms. It is located perfectly...short distance from all the shops, restaurants etc in downtown Palm Springs yet set up in the hills for great privacy. There is great hiking right out your door as well. We especially enjoyed the cliffside hot tub at night & napping on the swinging daybed.

                                                                    Nick could not have been nicer or more accommodating. He truly cares about the experience his guests have at his home and it shows throughout the property. I would highly recommend Villa Cahuilla to anyone planning to get away in the Palm Springs area!

                                                                    Amazing Home!

                                                                    Tracy H.

                                                                    Beautiful home for Birthday Celebration with family! Stunning views and landscape. We will be back! Thank you Nick for a perfect weekend.

                                                                    Incredible home. Incredible owners.

                                                                    Blake J.

                                                                    I wish I could leave a ten star review for both the property and owners. First, the owners. Nick and Mike went out of their way to ensure my wife and I had an incredible honeymoon. They thought of everything like rearranging the pool and grounds maintenance's scheduled visits so we wouldn't be disturbed, allowing an early check in after a long cross country flight, and making sure the pool was heated when we arrived. They also gave us a wonderful bottle of wine, took a lot of time to advise us on good restaurants, how to enjoy the home and city, etc. They are kind and thoughtful, genuine, helpful, honest, the kind of people you just enjoy being around.

                                                                    Now for the home. The pictures don't do it justice. The views from the pool and hottub are awesome, and there is plenty of privacy. We enjoyed the fire feature beside the hottub and the outdoor daybed where we watched falling stars. The pool has a soothing waterfall feature and is landscaped for maximum privacy. The interior is beautifully adorned, and Nick and Mike have thought of everything one might need in the way of towels, kitchen appliances, etc. There are plenty of dishes and glasses, cooking utensils, etc., and they encouraged us to use them as needed, which we did.

                                                                    The only problem you will have after staying here is you will then forever have a difficult time finding a comparable place to visit, and you will NEVER find owners more accommodating or gracious than Nick and Mike. My wife and I are planning on returning often.

                                                                    GREAT House in Palm Springs!

                                                                    Natasha W.

                                                                    Great place to stay in Palm Springs! The house is very clean, stylish and has all the features. Nick is a fabulous host and available for anything and everything. Would stay here again!


                                                                    Heidi D.

                                                                    We had a great weekend. Everything was top notch in the house. Nick did a great job meeting us and making sure we were well taken care of and educated about the house. Thank you for the fabulous stay!

                                                                    The best!

                                                                    Lauren F.

                                                                    What an amazing house! We stayed here in April and honestly can't wait to return. The house is even better than the photo's (if that's possible). The outdoor area is HUGE. The pool, BBQ, fire pit and hot tub are each in their own oasis. The inside of the house is absolutely beautiful, it must be custom without a detail overlooked.

                                                                    Nick was awesome and easy to coordinate with, he always responded to our emails in less than 24 hours. He provided great restaurant and bar recommendations and offered to coordinate a private chef for one of our meals. Our security deposit was returned within 24 hours, the whole process was seamless.

                                                                    We went offsite twice to eat out and our Lyft's were only a couple dollars and we were minutes away from were we wanted to go and a grocery store.

                                                                    Don't think twice, just book it. Worth every penny!
