About the Property

3000 sqft, private property w/ large pool, 3 bdrms + den w/sofabed, 3+1/2 baths

Our Casa Hermosa is to die for!! Just listed so we have no reviews to date. It is located in a peaceful neighborhood in South Palm Desert at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Centrally located to everything! Just a 20 min walk to El Paseo, and other destinations such as hiking trails, The Living Desert Zoo, McCallum Theatre, PD Aquatic Centre, golf courses, markets, grocery stores, restaurants and endless retail shopping are minutes away by car!

The minute you step into Casa Hermosa you will be on vacation!! The home has an early 1960’s layout that has been completely renovated in 2013 to bring the simplicity of mid-century modern to present day. The house offers over 3000 square feet of comfortable living space stretching out over 140 feet in length. There are 2 King Master Suites located on opposite ends of the house for very comfortable living, whether it be separate families, couples, or grandparents with their extended family vacationing together. There is a Spare/Childrens room next to the King Master Suite #1 that has a bunk bed and trundle pull out which will sleep 3 comfortably. On the other end of the house, there is a Den/Office with a very comfortable queen size sofa bed. Kitchen and Laundry room are equipped with new appliances. The house wraps around the pool and deck so that no matter where you are in the house, you are never more than 10 steps away from a cool refreshing swim. State of the art electronics are installed throughout the house, with LCD TV’s in most rooms, and sound system wired throughout, both inside and out. The Main Living Room boasts a 65” LCD screen with Cable TV, Xbox, Apple TV, DVD, Netflix, Chromecast, and Pandora Radio, all at your fingertips with the push of a button on the universal remote. The home is also equipped with a home automation system that controls the security alarm, set back thermostats, front and back door locks, alarm sensors on every door and window, smoke detector, and light switches throughout. Extended Wi-Fi network covers the entire house and patio with download speeds between 10 - 20 Mbps no matter where you are.


If this isn't enough, we have a backyard oasis that you will not want to leave! The large pool with cascading rock waterfall is the highlight of the property. The expansive covered patio provides a beautiful outdoor living space with plenty of seating areas for everyone to enjoy!

We have outfitted our Casa Hermosa with everything you need to relax and unwind during your vacation! It is our priority to make your stay at our home - relaxed, stress-free and wishing you never have to leave!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our Canadian family moved to the desert in 2011 for a 3 year work assignment in the area. We fell in love with this vacation hot spot (355 days of sun per year!) and decided to buy a property our last year here, with a plan to use it as a vacation home thereafter. Unfortunately our busy lives up in Calgary will only allow us to take advantage of our new desert vacation home 4 – 6 weeks a year. The rest of the time we plan to make our family vacation home available for others to enjoy. Before experiencing the desert, we never imagined spending too much time here, let alone our hard earned vacation time. We were pleasantly surprised to find out how much this area has to offer for not only families on vacation, but also couples and friends' getaways. Palm Desert/Palm Springs is truly a gem of a place to visit and we look forward to returning because it's always an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Did we mention 355 days of sun/year?!!

Why the Owner Chose Palm Desert, CA, USA:
We spent many months looking for our perfect vacation home. This home speaks 'vacation' the minute you enter it!! We wanted nothing less knowing we'd be returning to the long Calgary winters that wear us down and seem to have no end in sight. Our home is one of the largest and most private lots on this street of mainly local residents. It is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac which has gorgeous views of the mountains. The layout of this home is so very unique and special, with 2 separate King Master Suites at opposite ends of the home. There is also the spare room next to the one King Suite which is ideal for families with younger children. A den works as a 4th bedroom with a Queen pullout sofa bed. This layout is perfect for separate couples, families or grandparents wanting to spend time with their own children's family. It allows each to use their own 'wing' of the house. This is not the only advantage of the home - we can't forget about our amazing backyard oasis/patio area that wraps around the entire back of the house! Large sliding doors back onto the yard from almost every room! Lastly, we picked this property for its location and proximity to everything! Having spent 3 years in the area, Palm Desert is by far the best place to hang your hat! So....If you are looking for a true 'vacation home' to bask in the sun and frolic in the pool, this is the property for you - with over a half acre of property this home is a wonderful winter escape!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
1 - the way this home exudes 'vacation' in every way, 2 - the huge backyard with amazing waterfall pool, 3 - the brightness of the sun coming into every room of the house, 4 - the visibility of the pool from almost every room of the house (also helpful to keep an eye on children), 5 - the mid century modern design and luxury furnishings of this home, 6 - the way we have set this vacation home up for you to enjoy it from the minute you arrive (we have lived in this home for a full year, so you will find all the comforts and extras you need; from plenty of kitchen accessories, to games, puzzles, books, pool toys, and electronics for everyone to enjoy!)
