Detailed description:

Our tennis villa is located within the exclusive Mission Hills gated country club. Freshly renovated and continually updated, the villa's private rooftop deck provides unparalleled mountain views. Combine these views with a fire table and plush patio furniture, and you have the perfect desert setting for cocktails at sunset.

Outfitted in a Tommy Bahama-theme, the villa quickly puts you into vacation mode from the minute you enter it.

The villa offers all the modern conveniences, including:

Ground floor:

Living/dining great room with high open-beam wooden ceilings, gas fireplace, smart HDTV with digital cable including HBO, Showtime, plus Netflix and HuluPlus (plus DVD). A bluetooth sound bar lets you play your own music from your smartphone. A queen sofa bed accommodates two additional guests upon request.

Our dining room seats four and, in addition, we have a high-quality (stable) folding table and chairs when needed for additional guests. A granite wet bar with full complement of barware to meet your entertaining requirements completes this space.

Our well-equipped kitchen features updated appliances, including a five burner gas range, quiet Bosch™ dishwasher, large fridge with ice maker, and a large built-in microwave. Expect to find all of the kitchen gadgets you'd normally find at home.

A high-quality ASKO™ washer/dryer set completes our main-floor appliances.

The ground-floor patio features a new dining table (2016), umbrella, and a stainless steel natural-gas BBQ. This patio is steps to one of our community's five swimming pools and spas.

The ground floor bedroom features a California king-sized bed fitted with Tommy Bahama linens, an ensuite bath with shower (no tub), a reading lounge chair, and HDTV. A full-size dresser, large closet (equipped with hangers and luggage rest), and bedside tables provide ample storage space.

Second floor:

The second floor bedroom features a king-sized bed, also fitted with Tommy Bahama linens, an ensuite bathroom with tub/shower combination, and a HDTV television. Two oversized closets, plus space in two ample dressers and bedside tables provide voluminous storage.

The second-floor landing features an office station with colour printer/scanner, basic office supplies, and a small lending library.

Third floor/Rooftop deck:

The rooftop deck is the signature feature of our villa; it is unique to only a handful of tennis villas in Mission Hills. Ours has a particularly good west-facing vantage point, with a 360° view of the mountains that encompass the Coachella Valley, including the Santa Rosa, San Jacinto, and San Bernardino ranges. The roof deck provides outdoor seclusion that is uncommon at the ground level.

Our villa is protected by an ADT™ monitored alarm system. Green features include LED lighting throughout, water-saving toilets, washer and dishwasher, an on-demand hot water heater, Nest™ thermostat, and a new (2015) high-efficiency HVAC system.

About Robert Peterson

We live and work in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We believe that we take a great deal of pride in our homes. We rent this second home in Rancho Mirage, because we're still busy with careers in Canada. We are pleased to share our home in the desert with people from around the world who like to explore and enjoy the Palm Springs lifestyle as much as we do!

Robert Peterson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Robert Peterson chose Deserts

Mission Hills stood out as a unique community in the Coachella Valley with vast landscaped spaces and homes that were architect-designed to maximize privacy and the desert lifestyle. Mission Hills provides the perfect balance of active lifestyle and tranquility. Moreover, it is perfectly situated with easy access to Palm Springs, Palm Desert and of course Rancho Mirage. The tennis villa is a good size for small-scale entertaining and ease of maintenance for our longer-term guests.

What makes this villa unique

The roof-top deck is one of the highlights of the property. It provides a private outdoor sanctuary surrounded by the majestic Santa Rosa, San Jacinto, and San Bernardino mountains.

Our goal was to create a space that is contemporary and bright, not dated and heavy. We aim to constantly improve it. Our gas cooktop is a unique feature uncommon to the tennis villas in Mission Hills.

We have made best efforts to ensure the property is as comfortable as our main home, from the Keurig coffee system, to high-quality sheets, to access to Netflix and HuluPlus on the televisions.

We place a very high priority on keeping our villa immaculately clean for the comfort of our guests.

Superb Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this condo in Mission Hills, Rancho Mirage. With a car, parking is included, the location is handy for pretty well all of what Palm Springs and the local environs have to offer. The condo is spacious and .well-appointed with high quality furnishings and appliances. Each large bedroom has an ensuite full bathroom. The roof top deck affords a wonderful venue to watch the sunsets and the evening skies. The owners are very responsive and professional to work with. We recommend this accommodation to adults looking for a quality vacation in the southwestern desert.

Flexible Owner

  • 5 of 5

We had to change our date because of a medical issue with one of our party. We found Robert to be quite flexible and prompt in response to our concerns about the possibility of changing our date. The home is fully equipped and close to everything.

Where do you live?

Beauty, Tranquility and Fishing....

  • 5 of 5

From the very first inquiry, the communication with Robert was excellent. The villa is as described. We cooked every meal while we were there, and we had all of the kitchen accessories we needed. I loved that the pool was literally right outside the back door. I enjoyed it all to myself every morning on our 3 day stay. The beds were comfortable with quality linens. The deck on top was an added bonus. Very peaceful sitting up there and enjoying the scenery. If you love to fish, there are only two resorts that I've found in the desert where you can do this. Mission Hills is one of them, and according to my son - the best. The three days we were there, my son caught and released over 50 good sized large mouth Bass from the nearby (walking distance), lake! He was the only one out there. Who knew you could fish in the desert? Robert's villa has attention to detail, comfort, serenity and FISH! I recommend this property to anyone, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Nadine. As I mentioned, we weren't aware of the amazing fishing opportunities right here in Mission Hills. Thanks for bringing that to our attention; we look forward to welcoming your family back!

Every convenience in a peaceful and centrally located community

  • 5 of 5

I loved the property. It had everything we needed, was beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained. The community was serene and ideal for a morning stroll. So much to do in the area that my family and I have rented 3 times in the last two years and still haven't done everything! This rental is far and above the best one yet.

Mission Hills Country Club is a premier private golf and tennis club neighborhood located in the heart of the Coachella Valley (note: interested vacation renters discuss use of Club facilities directly with the club; rental does not include access; golfing can be arranged on several of the golf courses through the Westin Mission Hills). However, you don't need to be a golfer or tennis player to appreciate Mission Hills. It is a beautiful, lush, safe and secure gated community ideally situated in the "Beverly Hills of Palm Springs" - the lovely City of Rancho Mirage, which is centrally located minutes from Palm Springs International Airport.

A small, affluent community of celebrities and snowbirds alike, Rancho Mirage is home to its own world-class golf, restaurants, shopping and medical facilities. Centrally located in the heart of the Coachella Valley conveniently between historic Palm Springs and the upscale shopping and restaurants of Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and Mission Hills specifically is your ideal home away from home in the desert.

Our house is not an anonymous corporate rental. It's our second home. We continue to increase its comfort and style, keeping it as up-to-date as possible. That means we pay attention to the little details, from high-quality linens to the kitchen gadgets you need to prepare an at-home dinner. Please note that we provide bi-monthly housekeeping service so if you rent on a monthly basis you will receive one 'free' cleaning. Should you desire to pay for a greater level of service for any length of stay, please contact us directly to help make such arrangement.
