This 4 bedroom/ 3 bath "Guest House" (complete with separate 1 bedroom/ 1 bath staff or guest Casita) is unquestionably the finest furnished vacation rental available in all of Mountain Gate, a private and pristinely manicured gated community located before the Tram in No. Palm Springs. Sumptuously appointed for those who appreciate both fine and decorative arts in life. 5 star home w/ 3 pools, tennis & more.
This luxury Palm Springs vacation rental is full of elegant touches, has space for up to 10 visitors, and features wonderful views of the mountains. Even better, it's a pet-friendly property, has plenty of entertainment options, and has access to shared pools and hot tubs!
Located in a gated community on the northwest end of town, this home features incredible views thanks to its perch at the foot of Mt. San Jacinto. With beautiful surroundings, well-maintained grounds, and a quiet neighborhood, this house is in a serene spot away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, but is still within a short drive of the varied activities in the area.
As soon as you pull up in the driveway, you will be impressed by this home's impeccable landscaping and stately manner. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, everyone will have plenty of space to spread out and find their favorite corner of the house.
Have a seat in the living room and watch some cable or Netflix on the huge flatscreen TV. Other entertainment options throughout the house include books, WiFi access, and board games so you can organize a fun game night with your loved ones. The living room also has a gorgeous gas fireplace that will add a cozy ambiance during those chilly desert evenings.
A recently updated full kitchen will delight the chef in your group! Granite countertops, new appliances, and plenty of cooking tools will make it enjoyable to prepare tasty meals here. Sit everyone down at the formal dining room table or the more casual three-seat breakfast bar and enjoy a family-style dinner together.
Altogether, between this main section of the home and the attached guest house, this property can accommodate a maximum of 10 people, though any more than eight visitors should be comfortable sleeping on a sofa. We also welcome up to two dogs, but please be aware that a $10 nightly, per-pet fee (with a $40 minimum per stay) applies.
When it's time to head to bed, you will have your choice between four bedrooms. The master suite features a decadent king-size bed, a lovely sitting area by the window, and an attached full bathroom that has double sinks, a tiled shower, and a large soaking tub. Two more bedrooms each have a queen-size bed, and the final room is furnished with two twin beds. With two more full bathrooms, as well as a laundry room, you won't have to worry about what to do if your clothes get a little dusty while exploring the region.
Outside, you will discover an enclosed backyard patio area with all kinds of desert plants and greenery. This back yard is a great, safe space for children to play. The front courtyard area contains an entryway, as well as another safe, enclosed space to roam. The courtyard also has a new gas grill and a table with chairs, so this is a great opportunity to soak in some glorious sunshine while cooking a tasty meal of grilled chicken and veggies for everyone.
Within the Mountain Gate community you will have access to three separate pools (one of which is always heated during the winter) and hot tubs. The neighborhood also features dog-friendly grassy areas with cleanup stations, tennis courts, and a fun playground for children.
When you feel like exploring the area, you may want to start with a ride on the famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, where the 10-minute trip will take you on a scenic journey up the cliffs of Chino Canyon. At the top, you can eat at the upscale Peaks Restaurant and enjoy a meal of local greens with pasta while enjoying the view of the city from an altitude of 8,500 feet.
Just a short drive will take you from your vacation home to the varied attractions of Palm Springs. Golfers will be ecstatic to discover there are more than 130 golf courses in and around the city, while other members of your group may prefer to visit the Desert Spa Casino, Knott's Soak City water park, or the Living Desert Zoo. Palm Springs has no shortage of shopping, dining, and entertainment options of all types, so don't be afraid to explore the city! You could even take a drive around town, admire the postmodern architecture, and stop in at a trendy bar.
For guests who want to spend more time adventuring in the great outdoors, you can easily find hiking and mountain biking trails that will take you around the rugged and breathtaking landscape. You could book a guided horseback ride through the desert, or drive up to the iconic Joshua Tree National Park to have a nice picnic lunch and take photos of the spectacular scenery.
Whether you choose to relax inside this luxurious Southern California vacation rental and enjoy the company of your loved ones, or venture out and explore everything the area has to offer, you will be glad you booked this home when you see its amazing views, lovely neighborhood, and easy

About Charles Shorter
I purchased and decorated this home as my personal residence. I love Palm Springs, living here off and on for over 30 years. I loved Mountain Gate; the privacy, security, the kept landscaping and community offerings, pools, tennis, etc. I am still in the area, having purchased another home in the Valley.
Charles Shorter purchased this Villa in 2013

The house was very comfortable, spacious, and clean...even though we had 8 people, including my 92 year old mother, it never seemed crowded! Minor issues...tv/cable, lighting, and plumbing...were quickly taken care of once the call was made. Chuck was very pleasant and easy to deal with. We had to cut our stay a little short but we loved the house and community. We are hoping to stay there again next year!
We very much enjoyed this house during our month in Palm Springs. Spacious and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable and we loved the cooler nights of the desert. Very quiet neighborhood and friendly neighbors next door. The community is well maintained and makes for nice strolling in the later afternoon. We made good use of the small courtyard in the front where we ate most of our meals outside. Our hosts provided some thoughtful provisions to get us started and overall were very helpful and accommodating.
The Palm Springs Aerial Tram to Mt. San Jacinto is a real treat---from the warm desert floor into cool climate. Almost straight up 5,,873 feet over exciting mountain terrain with great views----the Tram rotates 360 degrees as it proceeds up and down the incline.
