About Jessica Spry
After living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years (we still love you, SF!), we left our high pressure jobs to spend more time with our young children (10 and 12) and enjoy a slower pace of life. You can probably relate, right?. As big fans of mid century architecture and design, we were naturally attracted to the greater Palm Springs area, and decided to move here full-time in 2014. Like you, we're relatively new to the area, so we've spent months exploring everything the region has to offer (we have lots of recommendations if you'd like). We love our new desert life and are excited to share it with you!
Jessica Spry purchased this Estate in 2014
Why Jessica Spry chose Indian Wells
Yes, it sounds like a cliche. But we fell in love with this house the moment we stepped through the door. Although it's a large property by desert standards, it felt cozy and welcoming. From the warm tile, to the natural wood and stone, to the sunny pool and tennis court, we felt immediately at home. Boasting 50 palm trees and spectacular mountain views, the grounds are thoughtfully designed to promote private rest and relaxation. We love the outdoor bar and grill, and the multiple seating areas around the property. The former owner is a successful Bay Area entrepreneur who only used the property occasionally, but kept everything immaculate for his guests (anyone remember Robin Masters from Magnum, P.I.?). We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do--and would love to hear about any improvements you might recommend.

Very large property - great for groups
The property is very large - ideal for family reunions or vacations with multiple families. Not only are there multiple bedrooms with private bathrooms, there are two casitas on the property as well - which is great for privacy. There are many sitting areas throughout the yard, plus not to mention the tennis court and pool. Our family spent the majority of our time outside. The property is kid and dog friendly as well. The property managers and owners were very kind and attentive.
We had a beautiful and relaxing time in your lovely home. The decision had already been made that we would love to rent again. The amenities were very nice. The property was above expectations.
Great Family Place
My family and I had a wonderful time while staying in this home. Lots of yard space for our two young kids to run around when taking a break from the pool, and a very warm and comfortable interior of the home for us to catch our breath at the end of the day over dinner. The concierge, Dana, was also fantastic in helping us with our needs throughout the week. We certainly hope to make it back and stay here again.
Great family holiday
We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our whole family and this property was perfect. The tennis court, pool and hot tub were used constantly. You could find a quiet spot if necessary in various corners of the property. The owners were very helpful and available to any needs we had.
Highly recommended and would love to return sometime.
Superb desert getaway
We have been holidaying in the Californian desert from the UK for many years and this is the best property we have stayed in. The full sized tennis court was well used by the children and the lovely pool was essential and a perfect solar heated temperature. The house itself was very spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. The house is set in the middle of a large plot giving a lot of privacy. I can thoroughly recommend this Property for a wonderful family holiday.
Family reunion perfection!
The house was perfect. Beautiful, comfortable and had everything you would need for a great getaway vacation. Pool, tennis court, games.. who would want to leave?...but if you did it is the perfect location near shopping,
Restaurants and movie theatre.
Our whole group from 22-59 years old had an amazing vacation!
