IRON MOUNTAIN ESTATE

We just finished renovating our Iron Mountain Estate in October 2015 with the highest quality materials. You'll find Kohler, polished Italian Travertine, Restoration Hardware Crystal chandeliers, Bose, Sony, Z Galleries and more! You will feel like you stepped into a magazine, but with the comforts of home!

BACKYARD

The Iron Mountain Estate is truly a luxury resort compound - everything is right there on this enormous, private yard. Surrounded by mature ficus hedging, with every amenity imaginable, and with amazing lime-green and black decor, you will feel like you are at your own private 5-star hotel at a fraction of the price!

The south-facing yard is over 1/2 an acre; you have incredible sun all day long and amazing sunsets! We tore out the old pool and installed a large 20x42 ft. heated salt-water pool with a 9x8 ft spa, surrounded by Queen and Washington Palms. Spend the day lounging in the pool on one of our lime green pool floats, listening to your favorite music from hard-wired Bose speakers on all 4 corners of the pool. Have a drink (acrylic drink-ware only!) at the swim-up bar right in the pool! The tanning shelf in the pool is only 12-inches deep - perfect for letting little ones splash around or for cooling off while getting a great tan! Imagine reading a book on one of 10 custom-covered Cast Aluminum chaise lounges under a commercial grade umbrella while the kids play in the pool!

Nobody will be bored at the Iron Mountain Estate: Play a game volleyball in the pool (steel posts)with the built-in volleyball net (removable), or play a game of volleyball/badminton on the full-size grass court in the backyard. Remove the volleyball net for a game of soccer - the grass area is over 2000 square feet!!! Play a game of pool at the custom outdoor tournament size pool table located right off the pool deck. Or, have a ping-pong tournament at the outdoor ping-pong table. After you go for a hike on the nearby Santa Rosa Mountains, come back and have a relaxing spa to soothe your muscles!

In the evening, you can still play volleyball, pool or ping-pong as there are lights and heaters above the pool table (with music of course!) You can sit at one of two natural gas fire-pits and have a sip of your favorite cocktail! The professional landscape lighting provides the perfect ambiance for spending your evening outdoors!

The Games Cabana is 300 square feet of air-conditioned private space! It's carpeted with a large HDTV, a foosball table, comfortable seating, a foosball table and plenty of toys. Your kids will spend hours in the Cabana!

OUTDOOR KITCHEN/DINING

You will love the enormous outdoor kitchen with a natural gas barbecue, a searing grill, a gas cook-top with 4 burners, a fridge and a sink. Dine outdoors 365 days/year as the outdoor dining area and kitchen is covered by a trellis and with powerful outdoor heaters and speakers. The extra-large dining table seats 12 persons plus 4 stools at the bar.

BEDROOMS/BATHROOMS

There are 3 bedrooms in the main house (3 kings) and 2 bedrooms in the casita (1 king and 1 with 2 queen beds). All 5 bedrooms have brand new carpeting, pillow-top extra plush mattresses, large closets, a flat-screen HDTV, ceiling fans, luxury linens and beautiful furnishings and decor. Four of the bedrooms have their own separate bathrooms. The king bedroom in the main house uses the main bathroom.

All 5 bathrooms have beautiful Porcelanosa tiles, Kohler fixtures, stunning crystal lighting, huge showers with Starfire glass enclosures, 2 showerheads, carrara marble countertops and travertine floor tiles. Four of the bathrooms have double sinks. The Master Bathroom is incredible - it's huge, with a steam shower with 3 showerheads, and a huge soaker tub under a gorgeous crystal chandelier.

KITCHEN

The Kitchen has all new cabinetry, an 8-foot island and new quartz white counter tops. There are 2 dishwashers, a 50-lb ice machine, large built-in refrigerator and freezer, a garburator, a boiling hot and cold filtered water dispenser, a microwave,, a gas cooktop and a wall oven. Most importantly, there are 2 enormous picture windows to maximize the light and views. With tons of counter-space, the whole family can cook a meal together! We've fully stocked the kitchen with every small appliance and utensil you could ever need to cook a large family meal.

LIVING ROOM/DINING ROOM

The main living area of the house is an open concept; it's exactly the configuration you want for a vacation home. The living room has the most comfortable deep-seat sofa, love-seat and chair that you've ever sat in! It's 45-inches deep and filled with down - you'll never want to get up! You can relax, turn on the gas fireplace and watch a movie on the HDTV held in a super cool easel.

The distressed wood Restoration Hardware extended Dining Table and French linen chairs seats 12. You'll dine under Incredible Restoration Hardware crystal chandeliers beside an over-sized Trestle mirror so that everybody enjoys the views of the backyard and the Santa Rosa Mountains. Of course, you'll be listening to your favourite music hard-wired in through the Sonos sound system and Bose ceiling speakers.

OTHER AMENITIES

Enjoy Free WiFi and free long-distance anywhere in the US and Canada. A printer and some essential office supplies are available for your use as well as a large desk in the master bedroom.

RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT

We accept reservations through VRBO on-line. In order to reserve, we require 50% of the total cost of the reservation along with receipt of a completed and signed rental agreement. We are not able to hold any reservations pending receipt of funds or the contract as our properties book up very rapidly. Please be advised that VRBO processes payments through Europe and as a result, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT

Our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals are almost always booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our properties take approximately 5 hours to clean, and to wash, dry iron and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check-in time is 5:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. Occasionally, we can offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time but only if nobody is checking in or out on the same day. If you wish to guarantee a check-in time prior to 5pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to do so is to book the property for the prior night and then you can check in at any time after 5pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well and then you can check-out at your leisure.

RENTAL RULES

All of our properties are subject to the rules in the Rental Contract as well as the Palm Desert Short Term Rental Rules. No events, disruption of the neighbors or parties of any kind are permitted at any of our homes. No extra persons are permitted to stay at the property other than those listed on the Rental Contract. We expect our renters to provide the utmost of respect to the property and to the neighbors. Palm Desert Short Term Rental Licence #42632.

CANCELLATION POLICY

About Craig Jacobsen and Tracey Jackson

We are a professional couple (doctor and lawyer) with two young adult children from Vancouver who absolutely love our homes in sunny Palm Desert! We take great pride in our Holiday Home Rentals and have made them comfortable for ourselves as well as for our renters. We work hard, and when we head to the desert, we like to relax. We have all the finest linens, pillow-top mattresses and every amenity you could possibly imagine because we want all those things ourselves! We hope you will enjoy our Iron Mountain Estate as much as we do!

Craig Jacobsen and Tracey Jackson purchased this house in 2015

Why Craig Jacobsen and Tracey Jackson chose Palm Desert

We chose the Iron Mountain Estate for the incredible outdoor living, the location and the high quality of the construction. It is a solid house, built in the 1960s with all stucco interior walls for fabulous insulation and noise reduction. The backyard was the main selling feature though - it simply goes on forever! It is over half of an acre! There is an amazing citrus grove, 37 Palm trees and with the 20'x42' pool and 8'x9' spa - you will just live in that yard! The outdoor kitchen is 18-feet long with a natural gas barbecue, a 4-burner cook-top, a sink and an outdoor fridge! We have turned the Iron Mountain Estate into a true luxury outdoor living compound. We have not over-looked any detail - from the lighting, to the landscaping, to the sound system and even the toss cushions. Virtually everything is custom made just for the Iron Mountain Estate! We just love this property and we hope that you will too!

The Iron Mountain Estate offers space and privacy, sun and shade, fun and relaxation for every member of your group. It is particularly well-suited to families with children with the large children's playhouse and the play-depth pool. The commercial grade volleyball netting over the pool will make for hours of family fun! You can take in a game of pool, ping-pong, foosball or volleyball - all without leaving the compound! Go for a hike on the breathtaking Santa Rosa Mountains and then return for a spa while capturing the silhouettes of the Palm Trees at dusk. It's simply the best place in North America to vacation and we've captured it in luxury style at the Iron Mountain Estate.

What makes this house unique

At our Iron Mountain Estate, you will experience high style within walking distance (2 short blocks!) to the gorgeous shopping and dining street, El Paseo. We have decorated this property in a classic Restoration Hardware style. It is a sprawling estate with plenty of greenery off-setting the sparkling pool and decking. With 37 Palm Trees, and about 50 right next door, everywhere you look, you see Palms with blue sky behind - you will never forget that you are in Palm Desert! You will never want to leave this compound as it has everything you could possibly want right at your fingertips. You can cook a full meal with your family in the fully-stocked huge kitchen with all brand-new stainless steel appliances: an electric oven, gas stove-top, 2 dishwashers, an 8-foot island, as well as beautiful mountain and garden views. The yard is completely private with a lush ficus and oleander hedge surrounding the perimeter. Plus, it's so large (.6 of an acre), your neighbors are nowhere to be seen! Just imagine relaxing by the firepit, taking in the western mountain views while listening to your favourite music on the Sonos system and enjoying the incredible fragrance of the citrus blossoms or the arabian jasmine. Playing pool, volleyball or ping-pong never gets tiring! You will return to our Iron Mountain Estate for years to come! Your children will never want to leave with their own private clubhouse complete with foosball, HDTV, toys, air-conditioning and a table & chairs.

The Iron Mountain Estate is pure luxury at an affordable price only 2 blocks from El Paseo. It just doesn't get any better than this!

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 returned to this wonderful house for a second Thanksgiving. We were delighted to see it remains in the same pristine condition as 2 years ago. Except for grocery shopping and a visit to the Living Desert, we spent every minute enjoying this great house and yard, cooking in the fully equipped indoor and outdoor kitchens and making treasured family memories.

Iron Mountain Estate

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 50th birthday with my family and grandkids at this beautiful clean home and we had a fantastic time! The home had TV's in each room, air conditioning, plenty of bedroom space to fit my family perfectly with the most beautiful backyard ever! We enjoyed the pool, Jacuzzi, pool table, ping pong, volley ball in and out side the pool and the awesome playroom for the little ones to enjoy. We never had to leave the house because there were so many activities to keep us busy and we were able to use their BBQ space and enjoyed the outside dining. Our family took so many picture perfect photos because the house was so beautiful and the backyard is to die for! I give this home a 5 Stars! I had the best 50th birthday ever! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with others to enjoy!

Amazing vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Iron Mountain for 6 days while on a girls trip. The pictures are exactly as advertised. Truly a paradise with everything (and more) that you would need to make you feel at home. Check in went smoothly with Joe who was friendly and gave us the tour. The kitchen was very well stocked for entertaining with big groups. We used every area of the property while enjoying mountain views and it did not disappoint. The home was immaculate, beds were very comfortable and pool area was pristine. It is apparent the owners have taken everything into consideration. 5-minute walk to El Paseo for shopping and dining, malls/Target and more shopping a quick 5-minute drive. We had a minor issue with a shower not draining very quickly and we notified owners to let them know (certainly not emergent). The owner responded and sent Joe over right away to remedy the problem. Can't wait to come back again!

Wonderful interlude!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented at least a dozen different homes in the Palm Springs area and each time they seem to get better. We were 4 couples that have been getting together for many years to catch up, drink good wine and eat amazing food! This house allowed us all to have our own bedrooms (all en-suite except for one, bathroom down the hall), had the best equipped kitchen we have seen and a great outdoor area. It really did tick all the boxes!

There were a couple of areas that might pose a problem for some people though.

Firstly, the hot tub and music outside automatically shut down at 10pm - it would have been nice if it was at least 11pm.

Second, even though the yard is completely surrounded by hedges they are a bit thin on the side that runs down the lane so those that desire complete privacy might be a little bothered.

These did not pose an issue for us and we had a wonderful holiday! Definitely looking forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our Iron Mountain Estate Anthony! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. In terms of the music and hot-tub, unfortunately, the Rules for Short Term Rentals throughout the desert do not permit any outside noise after 10pm, which is why they are automatically turned off at that time. Regarding the ficus hedges, we just had them trimmed in cooperation with the neighbors just prior to your arrival; they are usually very full and provide complete privacy. We hope to have you back again for your next Holiday. Regards, Tracey & Craig, owners.
