Property description

An exceptional indulgence, that's what this elegant four bedroom 4300 square foot villa on the golf course offers. A stay here embraces all that is best about Indian Wells--golf, tennis, hiking, warm days by the pool and terrific cuisine!

You will love the designer furniture and original art. High tech mobile control over pool and spa keeps you cool in the heat while you gaze out at the palm trees and Mt. Eisenhower. The bounty of our lemon tree ensures your Gin and Tonic tastes just right!

The kitchen is the BEST in Indian Wells with three diswashers, two Dacor wall ovens, two sinks with garburators, Dacor cooktop (gas), Subzero fridge, and a wine fridge (of course!). Perfect for entertaining! Note the spacious island and counters where your guests can sit while you or your kitchen help prepare the feast. And if you don't want to cook, the Club is simply the best when it comes to catering.

The dining room seats eight and is adjacent to a fully equipped bar. Ceramic dishes from Positano will light up the table and lend a festive air to your dinner party. You will especially enjoy the view over the pool deck and the Santa Rosa Mountains including Mt Eisenhower.

There are four ensuite bedrooms with a California king and 3 queens ensuring that you and your family/guests sleep well. The master bedroom opens up onto the pool deck and has a great view of the southern mountains.

Best of all--Location! Location! Location! Five minutes from our front door you will find El Paseo drive, offering wonderful restaurants, compelling art galleries, and shops galore. Indian Wells Golf Resort with over the top amenities and the Tennis Gardens are close by. La Quinta with its old town, art festivals and annual dog show (second only to the Westminster in NYC) is a must see! The Polo matches in Indio will make your Sunday afternoons special.

For the young at heart, there are excellent hiking trails close by that will take you to the top of Mt. Eisenhower and " the Cross" off Hwy 74 where you will enjoy spectacular outlooks over the entire Coachella Valley! Many other trails will allow you to explore various local landmarks including the Living Desert which is another must see!

Country club tennis courts, heated community pools, bocci courts, a new Fitness Club, and the Golf course are all available for your use. You are sure to enjoy the superb Country Club dining facilities and the Terrace Lounge. You need only set up an account with the Club for your temporary membership which we will be happy to assist you with. Be sure to Google "Desert Horizons Country Club by Robert Strain" for an enjoyable drone video tour of the Club and its environs. It doesn't get any better. Spectacular Villa Splendido is in the sweet spot of the Coachella Valley!
