Large, 5 bed/5 bath property with tennis court and pool near legendary El Paseo.

This beautifully landscaped, mid century estate is IDEALLY located in one of the most desirable areas of Palm Desert, adjacent to The Vintage Club—Coachella Valley’s most prestigious country club.

The property is also only 5 minutes away from:

• El Paseo, the Rodeo Drive of the desert. Here you’ll find the best shopping and many of the best restaurants in the entire region.

• The Golf Resort at Indian Wells, Golf #1 PGA Tour Course You Can Play in California.

• The spectacular Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home of the annual BNP Parabis Open.

• The Living Desert, our remarkable zoo and botanical gardens, featuring 450 wild animals and fabulous activities for kids of all ages.

Built on two adjacent walled parcels totaling almost an acre, the main house is decorated in a comfortable Santa Barbara-style featuring warm Saltillo tile floors, cozy leather seating, and glass sliders facing the stunning pool and tennis court. The living area has a large, mounted flat screen TV and charming two-sided gas fireplace (shared with the dining area) around which you and the family can gather on cooler evenings.

The gourmet chef’s kitchen features a gas range, stainless steel appliances, and breakfast bar opening into a dining area large enough for your whole clan. Both conventional coffee maker and Keurig machine are available for your morning caffeine fix.

The three large bedrooms in the main house feature comfortable king beds, newly refinished en suite bathrooms, and glass sliders opening onto outdoor patio areas. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV and DVR. The master retreat in the main house also features a gas fireplace and enormous walk-in closet. There’s a separate, fully equipped laundry room in the main house as well.

Offering two bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds, flat screen TVs/DVRs, and en suite bathrooms, the beautifully decorated, detached casita is a private oasis offering excellent separation of space for multi-family gatherings. The casita has its own back porch with lounge chairs, which is the perfect place for you to retreat with a good book.

The manicured grounds have multiple patios and seating areas, beautiful mountain views, and large grassy areas for croquet, volleyball, badminton, or whatever.

Resort-style amenities include:

• newly resurfaced, Pebble Tec swimming pool with waterfall

• newly resurfaced tennis court (also lined for pickle ball) with a basketball hoop at one end

• back patio with outdoor hot tub/spa

• outdoor kitchen with gas grill, wine fridge and beer fridge

• three outdoor dining areas and multiple patios (so you can eat in the sun or shade, as you wish)

• high end outdoor furnishings including loungers, umbrellas and a variety of comfortable club and adirondack chairs all around the property

To ensure privacy for you, and peace and quiet for our neighbors, the property has two separate gated entries, two driveways, and a 2-car garage creating off-street parking for up to 8 vehicles.

We are committed to being good neighbors and meeting or exceeding all requirements for Palm Desert rental properties. Permit #4114.

                                                                    Bryan R.

                                                                    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

                                                                    Bonnie G.

                                                                    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.

                                                                    Peter R.Chelmsford, Essex, England.

                                                                    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.

The house itself has plenty of room for everyone to enjoy and still feel like you have your own space when you want. The pool area and outdoor spaces are beautiful as well and secluded from the neighbors for a very private feel. Additionally, the owners were very responsive to any questions we had leading up to and during our stay and were very accommodating for one of our guests who had a late departure time and requested to spend a few extra hours past checkout at the house.

                                                                    Wonderful Vacation Retreat!

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for entertaining. Five bedrooms with ensuite and comfortable beds. The backyard is very private, peaceful, and truly amazing with comfortable lounges, multiple patios, and seating areas with beautiful mountain views. Owners and their staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely rent again!
