About the property

Remodeled 1956 Mid Century home with separate guest casita.

Our classic mid century home is located in a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood in South Palm Desert, bordering Indian Wells. We are a quick 5 minutes to the upscale El Paseo and Indian Wells favorites, Don Diego's and The Nest.

Our mid century home has been completely remodeled, yet the original design of the home has been retained. Included is a newly renovated separate guest casita with private bath. The casita has a wet bar with sink, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Enjoy your morning coffee in our private courtyard with views of Toro Peak! The casita also has a comfortable queen size bed, futon sleeper sofa, flat panel TV, and I Home music clock/radio.

The main house provides 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. The king bedroom opens out to a covered patio, and the sound of the waterfall in the pool. This room also includes a flat panel wall mounted TV and large closet. The second bedroom has a queen bed, desk, and large closet. The main bath has been completely remodeled with a new subway tile tub surround and granite vanity top.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. It is bright and open.

Our living room features furnishings and design of the mid century era. Our original wood burning fireplace is a classic style from the 1950's. The TV, and music system are smartly concealed behind the contemporary frosted glass sliding doors.

One of the highlights of our home is the sparkling pool and built in spa. The pool can be heated for use in the winter. The gas heated spa is available year round to our guests. You will enjoy it on chilly winter evenings!

We also provide a built-in Lynx gas Bar B-Q, covered patio dining and comfortable lounging chairs to enjoy poolside. We have 3 bicycles available for your enjoyment. We are a short bike ride to El Paseo and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Our home books up in advance for the winter season. Please note, property is monitored by owner during Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals. We welcome responsible and respectful guests. Excessive noise or excessive mess will result in a complete loss of damage deposit and eviction.

What makes this house unique

Our Peppertree home was a diamond in the rough! The home had been vacant for sometime and needed a great deal of work. Our realtor thought we were crazy to take on the project, but we had a vision of what the house could become. We loved the neighborhood and the beautiful views. Sitting in the front courtyard having morning coffee could not be better on Peppertree!

Thanksgiving Enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

My family (all adults) enjoyed our stay at Sean and Debbie's Palm Desert home. The well-maintained home is as shown and very comfortable, our adult children shared the main home while my husband and I had the casita. The outdoor area is very comfortable and very well maintained making relaxing by the pool very enjoyable. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked well enough for everyday cooking, but I was thankful one of my children brought a mixer and other utensils needed for making our Thanksgiving dinner. The new gas range was wonderful to cook on and the outdoor grill was great. The home is close to shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants. We enjoyed our day trips to Idylwild and Joshua Tree both about an hours drive.

Our only suggestions for the property would be to have a larger table for indoor dining table since the weather did not allow eating outdoors all the time. Debbie did make me aware of this before hand, so our group made do. Also a hair dyer for the casita would be great.

Debbie and Sean were very responsive and helpful to my questions before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this home.

By far my most pleasant experience renting a vacation home, from the ease of the rental, to getting in, and operating everything inside. This home is modern, spacious, and beautifully decorated. So much attention to detail! It had everything we needed, the pool, spa and grill working well, and the owners are very responsive and attentive. Thanks for a great stay!

Our second stay at this house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this same house last year at the same time and loved it as much as the first! Convenient location and services, quiet neighborhood and all the things you need for a great stay. The house was clean and fresh, the pool and hot tub worked great, and there was a brand new washing machine. We definitely would stay here again.

The house was everything stated and more. The instructions for the house were very straight forward, the house had everything we needed. Appliances are new and worked well. The pool area was spectacular, rarely was any of my family inside during the day. Plenty of shade or sun, whichever you wanted. Very quiet neighborhood, close to shopping, hiking trails. Didn't need the pool heat as temperature was 85-99 degrees all week. Bikes were a bonus. No issues all week, didn't need to contact the owners at all. Love Palm Springs weather, will return.
