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!!!

Absolutely beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days late March 2017 and it was very quiet not many people around,

which is what we wanted. Weather was in the 80's , but hit 105 and 110 on the last two

days, very unusual for that time of year.

The townhouse was excellent, beautifully renovated and decorated and offered everything

we needed. We both love to cook so we were impressed that they had not forgotten a thing

in the kitchen, (except a teapot, for me). We are Canadians and we serve tea in a teapot, but

most Americans seem to drink coffee. My husband was happy, there were TWO coffee machines.

We would definitely return to Mission Hills, possibly this winter, but for a longer stay, and I

will bring my own teapot.

A Gorgeous place in a Gorgeous Setting

  • 5 of 5

We were sad to leave our stay at Rancho Mirage. The condo is beautiful and has such a lovely aspect facing the lake with Mt San Jacinto in the background. We enjoyed touring around the country club in the provided golf cart, and swimming in the lovely pool a few yards away. It was well equipped and secure.

Highly Recommended. We can't wait to return.

Perfect setting with views and peacefulness!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in this beautifully furnished and decorated condo ~ one of the best VRBO units we have ever stayed in, and we do this a lot. The kitchen and pantry have everything a home could offer. The mountain views are gorgeous and the large pond with wildlife just out the back door is enchanting, calm, and soothing. The owners are very accommodating and extremely responsive. We also used the pool a lot and enjoyed walking the area, so very well planned out. We would stay here again!

Surrounded By Beauty From Sunrise To Sunset

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 6 days here to escape the Wisconsin winter weather for awhile. Our experience at this property was AMAZING. Interacting with the owner (David) prior, during and after our trip was very positive. He responds to all messages very quickly. The property is even better than it looks in the pictures on the website which is saying a lot because the pictures were what attracted us to the property. And the view of the surrounding areas and snow capped mountains is impossible to explain. We travel several times a year around the county and would rate this as one of the best overall experiences we have had. Looking forward to a return trip to the area.

Terrific stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this spacious lakeside Mission Hills condo.

Everything from booking to check-in, and check-out was seamless

It was evident upon our arrival that a good amount of detail had been put into this unit. We wanted for nothing.

The unit was spacious, and situated in a choice spot within the complex...allowing for a spectacular view of the lake, mountains, and sunset.

We quite enjoyed the outdoor fire pit, once the sun went down.

Many Thanks to The Plourdes for their hospitality.

Great unit!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely wonderful! It is immaculate and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is state of the art and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. A large private courtyard and a fabulous patio with fireplace and outdoor kitchen provide beautiful sunsets over the San Jacinto Mountains. This private gated community is absolutely beautiful and has several pools one of which is a stones throw away. The location is convenient and very private yet close to many restaurants and shopping areas.

We couldn't have been happier with our stay and will definitely rent this home again for future trips.

Thank you for providing a comfortable and stress free rental experience!! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!
