About the property

3-4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms - private one acre lot with pool/jacuzzi/fountain

This house is all ABOUT BEING OUTSIDE and lounging. The backyard is huge. The inside is very homey. The house is roughly 3500 sq foot. The lot is one acre. There are pictures of our family in the house which most people enjoy seeing. Walking distance to Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Shuttle for Coachella & Stagecoach usually run from there too. Palm Desert Country Club is 5 minutes away. Amazing one acre mini-estate for outdoor entertaining, luxury living and total desert escape. Pool and Spa, Misters, gas BBQ, with plenty of relaxation space inside and out. The outdoor space is amazing and very, very private with an outdoor shower, outdoor bathtub & outdoor bed with open ceiling to the stars. Swimming pool provides a sun shelf for superior relaxation under the pool umbrella. There is a ton of parking but if more than 3-4 cars, please notify me of how many total for further instructions. The home has 3 large bedrooms with 3 king beds + one room that closes off from kitchen with sectional sofa and deluxe queen blow up mattress (so it's high off the ground) that is brand new or twin blow up. Personally I don't like pull out sofa's and that is why we have the blow up's in the 4th bedroom behind the kitchen. Two bedrooms share a Jack & Jill bathroom. Full kitchen is a chef’s dream. It is a very quiet and private neighborhood with two local road runners that come and go as they to watch them run around the yard. There a horseshoe pit to play on in the backyard, a dart board and ton's of board games in the hallway closet plus a few hole hoops and pool toys. There is a rose garden in the front on house by the Spanish fountain. Open the windows and enjoy dinner or cooking to the sound of a spanish fountain in the front yard. Enjoy a nap in the down sofa by the glass rock fireplace with builtin 52" TV in the living room. Enjoy breakfast with a view of the snow capped mountains. Go for a hike at Joshua Tree or Indian Canyon. Visit La Quinta Village and have a bite to eat at the famous Hog's Breath that Clint Eastwood owns. Order food in with LA bite that delivers for most of the restaurants in the valley.

TERMS: The reason for the separate contract is because of previous tenants, mostly young who I guess are not homeowners and it's a CYA because we live in this beautiful state of California, so a separate rental contract/house rules must be signed BEFORE entry is allowed. If you need to see contract before you book, please notify me beforehand and I will email you a copy. By booking, you are agreeing to the separate rental contract and the # of people you originally booked with. Late check out (if approved) will only be granted before arrival, not the day of check out. Just installed 11/16 the Sonos system for indoor/outdoor entertainment which can be operated from your phone and RCI wireless remote which cost $1k for replacement inc labor if ruined by guest or animal. Outside TV which has Roku and another inside TV which is operated by your phone for netflix, etc. NO pets allowed without prior approval...$375 pet fee. Early check in before 3pm or late check out is $40 per hour. Pool heating in winter (Oct-May) $100.00 per day, $300 min (max of 89 degrees) and is not needed in summer (July-Sept).

Parties of 12 or more (if approved) are $5,000.00 min plus ($100 per person) and $1k cleaning fee (extra trash, etc). All fees for unauthorized pets, extra people not declared at time of booking or unauthorized parties will be double the regular fees if caught on camera after your arrival. No smoking indoors and if outdoors, we prefer you keep off the Sunbrella fabric cushions on the patio furniture because they are brand new and replacement cost is $500 each. I would prefer no wine, coffee or gatorade in the bedrooms because it does stain permantently especially when you don't clean it up right away...usually the carpet has to be replaced. Carpet cleaning is $500.00. No candles however, I do have battery operated ones for your enjoyment. Please cover the landscape lighting with the black buckets I provide when playing horseshoes...replacement cost of lights $400 each.

We take very good care of this house and hope that you would as well. Remember, it's somebody's home which is why I'm pretty straight forward and forthright in explaining all of these details, so you can't say that you weren't warned...LOL!

About Maria Angel

We purchased this home which we call Moon Kai resort because it's so relaxing, great for entertaining and outdoor living. You won't want to leave! LA Bite delivers for most of the restaurants or BBQ. We are walking distance to the Indian Wells tennis garden and Southwest Church which is a shuttle pick up for Coachella and Stagecoach but I have no idea if and when they change shuttle pick up locations.

IF authorized in writing, fees for parties 12 & over are $5000 plus double the cleaning fee and deposits. If extra people or parties are caught on camera all fees will be double. The cameras are purely to keep people honest about the numbers of people coming. By booking you are agreeing to the separate contract which must be signed before your arrival.

Why Maria Angel chose Palm Desert

It's your own private resort...peaceful with birds singing and the wind blowing through the trees, custom outdoor Bali bath with outdoor hot/cold shower, outdoor heart shaped bathtub. Horseshoes, trampoline sunk into the ground, darts, pool toys, Fire pit, private parking, 1 TV inside on cable, 1 other TV inside operates from your iPhone, 1 TV outside on Roku, games.

This place is all about relaxing. No HOA.

The king beds are extremely comfortable! Shampoo and soap are provided along with blow dryer and straightening irons.

What makes this house unique

Outdoor Shower, bath tub and bed under the stars and moon...just amazing!

Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this vacation property - home away from home!!!

It has all the amenities you could want and more: Pool, hot tub, trampoline, beautiful shaded outdoor space as well as lounging area, outdoor shower and bath.

We especially enjoyed the lush fruit trees and large private yard.

For tennis fans, the house is a short easy walk to the Indian Wells Tennis Stadium.

We had a fantastic week!!!
