About the property

1 Bedroom + Awesome Great Room, 1 Bath Sleeps 4 With Lake And Mountain Vie

Relax in this inviting 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1,200 square foot getaway located on the best lot in the Mission Hills Hacienda's with an amazing lake and mountain view.

The entry is open and inviting, and then once inside you will find that this newly remodeled and decorated single story condo feels like a home away from home. The entire condo is paved with hand chiseled travertine, and the cathedral ceilings give you an open and spacious feeling throughout the condo. Believe it or not, the two car garage also has the chiseled travertine floor. There is garage parking for one car due to the golf cart, but there are also several parking spaces adjacent to the garage.

The air conditioning ducts have been exposed to give the condo a unique industrial look, and the distressed barn doors add to the ambiance. There are brand new remote controlled ceiling fans in the living room and the bedroom. There are also six sky lights in the condo, which provide plenty of natural light.

Enjoy the generously sized kitchen with high end appliances and stocked with all the tools you need to prepare and serve a delicious meal. Or if you prefer to cook outdoors, there is a high end natural gas built in BBQ on the patio with comfortable seating to rest in and watch the sunset while you grill. You can eat casually on the bar stools at the kitchen counter or in the dining area, seating 8, or even head out to the beautiful patio where there is a great dining area for 4 as well as a beautiful casual seating area for five around the fire pit table.

There are also two comfortable lounge chairs for soaking in the warmth of the sun. The views of the lake and the glorious mountains are incredible from the patio. Check out some of our pictures, which were taken by me (with just an Iphone) on several different days while sitting around the fire pit.

The condo is equipped with a wireless printer, and high speed WIFI access throughout the home and patio, so you can share the awesome sunsets with your Facebook friends.

There is a book shelf in the bedroom full of choices for your reading pleasure. Feel free to take the book with you, if you haven’t finished reading it by the end of your stay!

The living room features a 50' flat screen TV, Blue Ray Smart DVD player so you can log into your Netflix, Hulu, and/or Amazon accounts, etc, and not miss your favorite shows. There is also a DVD library to choose some movies we thought you might like. There is also a Bluetooth compatible stereo with access to Pandora, etc., Ipod connection and built in surround sound speakers. There is also a nice gas fire place for ambiance or for warmth. For the musician, or want to be musician, there is also a nice acoustic guitar for you to play or just play around with.

Feeling a little tired? Relax in your master suite with a super comfortable California king size bed, and a 42' flat screen TV for late night shows. Your master bathroom looks like a spa, with a glass sink and a large walk in shower with two shower heads, one wall mounted and the other an overhead rain shower head. The shower is encased in hand chiseled travertine and a glass block wall. There is plenty of storage space in the bathroom as well as two door massive closets with mirrored doors for your wardrobe.

The bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer, towels, ironing board, iron, etc.

The living room also has two sofa beds. One pulls out to a queen size bed and the other pulls out to a twin size bed.

Feel like taking a swim? The gated community pool and spa are just a few steps away, which makes for easy trips back to the condo for forgotten items, lunch, drinks or anything you can think of.

Need a little exercise? There are two cruiser bikes provided for your use, or take a nice walk or jog around the flat Mission Hills community.

If you like to play golf, there are over 100 courses in Palm Desert with many being public access. Take advantage of our super cool golf cart to cruise around Mission Hills estates.

End your day relaxing on the massive patio and enjoy the lake and mountain view, and the incredible sunsets. The patio has powered awnings to shield you from the sun and a fire pit to warm you up at night.

Rancho Mirage has plenty of things to keep you entertained and your palette satisfied with many shopping areas, restaurants with many different cuisines, hiking, tennis, bike riding and exploring all close by.

We invite you to enjoy this incredible desert getaway!!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a quiet getaway! The accommodations were excellent, providing a clean, roomy and home like feel! The condo is spacious and well appointed. It has great access off the living room to the patio with gorgeous views and amenities to die for! Built in BBQ island, dining table, lounge chairs, and fire pit table.

The kitchen was an absolute joy to cook in! The place is beautifully decorated and the bathroom has an amazing walk in shower with rain shower feature! It had everything thing we needed and more!

Mission Hills was quiet, yet there was plenty to do with pools, grass, tennis courts, as well as pickle ball and croquet! We didn't play golf, but the course was beautiful! No need to leave property, but plenty of shopping, great food and activities close by!

Overall amazing stay!

My kids said it "was the best vacation ever!"

  • 5 of 5

Due to desert summer temperatures, we spent most of the week "hanging out" in the condo. Everything we needed was supplied along with pretty clear instructions on how to use everything and all light switches were labeled. We especially enjoyed the bikes.

Peaceful, private, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights here and found it the perfect place to recharge.

The unit is spacious and beautifully decorated. The views are fantastic - I spent hours just watching the mountains, hummingbirds catching bugs, egrets fishing in the lake, and more.

The kitchen is well stocked, and I made meals with ease. All furnishings, especially the bed and including the patio, were very comfortable. The grounds are meticulously maintained.

Emily and David are gracious hosts and we wanted for nothing.

This is an amazing find that is really unique and fun. The view is incredible, looking straight at the most powerful mountain over lush Palm trees and a lake. Everything is clean and we'll organized. A fun break from. Routine.
