Rancho Mirage Vacation Rental Permit #1756
The local 10% tax is NOT charged on monthly bookings. Contact by phone for quote on monthly rent.
*Due to multiple doors from home having access to pool, this property is not recommended for those with small children.
**Many cities in the Coachella Valley are reducing or eliminating Short Term Vacation Rentals. Rancho Mirage has just implemented more restrictions which I list below.
NOISE: The new ordinance stipulates that no sound amplification devices shall be audible at any time outside vacation homes. In addition, quiet time (no outside noise) is from 10pm to 10am.
PARKING: No street parking. Our driveway will hold a maximum of two auto's. Because of the parking limitations we cannot accommodate additional daytime guests. "Failure to comply may result in a citation, fines and expulsion from rented property." If you are looking for a quiet neighborhood experience then this is the place for you. If you need a party place I suggest other towns with more lenient rules. And now for the good part....
Nestled against the majestic San Jacinto foothills, this mid-century gem sits on 1/2 acre of lush, mature landscaping with mountain views. Lemon, orange and lime trees mingle with bird of paradise, blossoming oleander hedges and tall glistening palm trees.
Enjoy your morning on the private patio as the rising sun turns the nearby foothills pink and gold. At the end of the day, gather around the built-in gas fire pit with a glass of wine while the sun sets behind the pristine desert hills that are home to the protected Bighorn mountain sheep. Soon the stars will sparkle as you marvel at the stunning mountain silhouette.
Amenities: This single story, Alexander style home underwent a complete renovation in 2014 adding many modern upgrades and boasts all the amenities needed to ensure a memorable, comfortable vacation. We kept the best features: the circa 1957 rock fireplace, the open beamed ceilings, the sparkling kidney-shaped pool and the front wall of windows that look into the desert landscaping and foothills.
Outdoor Living: Relax in the shade of the large eucalyptus tree or enjoy the sun on your chaise lounge next to the sparkling kidney bean shaped pool. The pool area features lush landscaping and outdoor dining seating for four along with four chaise lounges. A second patio directly off the guest king is perfect for your morning coffee. Adjacent to the dining room is another outdoor dining set with seating for four and a gas barbecue. Enjoy seasonal fresh herbs and tomatoes from the salad garden.
Artwork & Lighting: The entire house features original contemporary artwork in every room, most of which was created by the owner during his 35 years as an art professor. Most of the lighting is on dimmers, allowing you to set the mood.
Location: Rancho Mirage is centrally located in the beautiful desert of Coachella Valley. Palm Springs airport is just 20 minutes away. This tranquil location, nestled in a beautiful wind protected cove, belies the fact that world class dining, shopping and entertainment is less than a mile away.

The gourmet kitchen is stocked with quality pots, pans and everything you will need for that memorable meal.
