Welcome to Marcel's Retreat! This architecturally significant mid century pool home is designed for desert indoor/ outdoor living with an expansive, completely private yard. The entire property is truly a special retreat with many enjoyable areas for relaxing. The house was built by Meiselman in the mid century and retains the beautiful post and beam ceilings throughout all the rooms. Slate flooring unites the interior and exterior living spaces. The home is tastefully decorated in a whimsical manner to create the ultimate desert retreat. Each bedroom has glass doors which open into a separate area of the beautifully landscaped, private backyard. The master bedroom or "Baa's Room" has a queen sized bed with luxury linens, an en suite bathroom with a bathtub, and a walk-in closet. The lamps in the master bedroom are mid century and this room is named after the sheep who resides at the entry to the room who ensures a good night's sleep. The second bedroom or "Giraffe Room" also has a queen sized bed, a large closet and a lovely view of the Gazebo and bougainvillea tree. This bedroom is named after the Giraffe that resides next to the glass door leading out to the yard. The third bedroom is called the "Zebra Room," which is the home's library or nursery (upon request). It boasts a view of and access to the pool. The Zebra Room has a purple futon couch/ queen sized bed and is named after the Zebra that resides in the corner of the room. There is a second bathroom next to the Giraffe Room and Zebra Room with a large step down shower. The living room of the home features a luxurious, full-sized sofa, a love seat, a chaise lounge, and is accented by period lighting and playful decor, all with beautiful views of the pool and outdoor terrace. The living room also has a flat-screened television with DirectTV, a cozy reading corner and there is free wireless internet throughout the property. The terrace of the home overlooks the salt water pool and contains a full-sized sofa and two arm chairs. The glass dining room table seats six and has views of the pool as well. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect to find in a chef's kitchen and has direct access to the outdoor dining Gazebo. The Gazebo is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor meals with seating for six and a lovely mountain view. There is also a hammock hung between two palm trees which boasts views of the pool, giant palms and cactus, as well as clear, starry night skies. No stay at Marcel's Retreat is complete without spending time in the hammock.
