Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Dramatic interiors and outdoor areas mingle seamlessly at this cutting-edge contemporary Multi-Million dollar home featuring a soaring pavilion roof, 15 foot Ceilings and disappearing walls of glass that heighten the impact of the San Jacinto Mountain vistas.

Retractable pocket doors completely expose the Great Room to the enormous salt water lagoon waterfall pool and lush tropical landscaping. Outdoor fireplace, Fire pit and Kitchen/BBQ truly make this indoor/outdoor living at its finest.

This 4 bedroom 4.5 bath resort home was built in 2007 and completely furnished with wonderful amenities. From the open floor plan that ties together the spacious living room, dining room, and kitchen, there are terrific views of the pool, yard, and spectacular. The chef kitchen is complete with two dishwashers, double convention oven, microwave, six burner gas stove and extra wide refrigerator/freezer with ice maker.

The master bedroom suite is located at one end of the estate while the other three bedrooms are positioned for privacy on the other end. One bedroom is a private casita with private entrance and courtyard. The bathrooms feature natural stone from floor to ceiling, and frameless shower enclosures. After entering through the signature Patel glass door, you will be captivated by the spectacular view in the great room that will take your breath away.

Although extremely private to allow for a Clothing optional lifestyle, it is important to note that there are no shades on the floor to ceiling windows that open to the secure landscaped backyard to allow for dramatic views from all rooms.

The extremely large lagoon pool and backyard is private and offers nude /au natural sunbathing opportunity. The pool is saltwater which will make your skin feel soft and refreshed. Behind the pool is one of the favorite spots you’ll come to enjoy; in the shade of the palms you’ll find a hammock and deep soft sand that you can’t resist wiggling your toes in.

The home features a state of the art sound system that includes speakers throughout the house, patio and outdoor living areas. You may play your favorite music from your IPod, CD’s or via one of the dozens of cable music channels provided. There are 3 HD plasma televisions, with the TV in the great room wired for surround sound. If you find yourself having the need to stay online, there is high speed cable wireless internet throughout the property.

About Bill Gaul

Single Dad-3 great kids, Child Friendly and Dog Friendly

I travel a great deal, and have a few homes across the country, enjoy my place while I'm not there and let me exceed your expectations...its not only the home you will be pleased with, but the total service and experience you will have. A property mgr/concierge is available to arrange any special needs like pre-arrival shopping, private massages poolside, pedi/mani treatments poolside, private celebrity chefs- Check out my testimonials!

Bill Gaul purchased this house in 2007

Why Bill Gaul chose Palm Springs

I love the peace, solitude and warmth of Palm Springs. It is easy to get to, and a couple of days here is like spending a week in Hawaii. There is something magical about it, I live a high stress life, and my blood pressure drops immediately and I have completely restful nights

What makes this house unique

Complete and total privacy, relaxation, solitude, and yet I can work from work when needed. Love to cook, and enjoy the large gourmet chef kitchen and outdoor BBQ area. The pool is the largest in the entire community and I brought in 100 tons of rock to build the natural waterfall. Check out the 'corona commercial hammock' behind the waterfall with misters, the perfect place to take a little nap under the shade of the palm trees!

Best Holiday Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The moment you walk into this incredible property you will feel absolute privacy with opportunity for enjoyment at every turn. Howie the Property Manager was there to greet us with such a fun spirit we felt so taken care of our entire stay. Bill, the property owner has done an exceptional job of creating a wonderful environment from cozy bed linens to having every kitchen and bar requirement needed to be able to cook and entertain in every fashion. We cannot recommend this property enough. We have stayed at vacation rentals around the world, Bahamas, Paris, Byron Bay and this is our favourite home. Your expectations will be exceeded with this wonderful property! yay!! THank you Bill!!!

Owner's Response: WoW..what a great testimonial from a great guest! This is especially touching/sincere knowing that they had rented another home through an agency and were very disappointed after 3 days of staying there; VRBO is the way to go- they contacted me and we were able to accommodate their transition to my home within hours so that they could enjoy the rest of their vacation in a style to which they were accustomed to. Great followup with these guests and I would recommend them to any VRBO owner as ideal guests. Bill

A Quality Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful vacation home to escape our cold and long winter. Everybody enjoyed the open concept living space and had more than enough privacy and space in their own bedrooms. During our stay, we pretty much lived in the backyard which is beautifully landscaped around the huge pool. The doors open up to allow easy access in and out. Bill has thought of everything and was a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad I could share some sunshine with this lovely group of friends. They were so laid back, easy going, and treated the home as if it was their own. Would love to have them back as soon as their weather turns cold again. Perhaps their doctor can write a prescription for a winter time 'pick me up' so they can get time off work, getting that past their health care insurance might be another thing though...

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this incredible home for spring break. The kids lived in the pool and my youngest child continues to think we should buy the house and move to Palm Springs! We stay at houses through VRBO often and this house lived up to all expectations. While the house is at the far end of Palm Springs, it is a very short drive into town. I highly recommend this home to any family with kids as they will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: As a single dad myself for many years, I know it is not easy to keep your kids entertained for the family vacation, especially as they get older. However this is a testament that mix a little water, some heat and some TLC and you have one great vacation made with lots of memories. This guest was wonderful and very attentive, would love to have his family back again and again.

Memorable vacation in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at this fabulous home and found it to be exactly as described. The location is at the far end of Palm Springs which is nice because it is very peaceful and quiet, but about a 20-40 minute drive to some of the more popular shopping areas. The house has a fabulous open design and we loved being able to open the glass doors and basically live outside! The house was well equipped with everything we needed, and we even found pool toys in the garage. Everything is very well maintained by the caretaker, Greg, who was very pleasant, polite, and helpful. Everything was very clean upon our arrival, and the lawn and pool maintenance was done regularly to keep everything in top shape. The owner, Bill, became a friend via our email conversations over the year leading up to our rental, and I would certainly recommend his property to anyone wanting to enjoy the "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" as we did. Our visitors were in awe when they saw the place, and everyone had an incredible time playing in the pool, lounging in the sun, and enjoying meals in the gourmet kitchen. Memories were definitely made here, as BOTH our daughters became engaged within two weeks of each other while visiting here. . . .maybe there is something in the water?? LOL! Thank you for an amazing vacation in your spectacular home, Bill. We hope to be back again soon - unless we end up purchasing our own home in Palm Springs!

Owner's Response: It makes me so happy to know that I was able to help create lasting memories for this lovely couple during their stay. When I am able to meet such nice people through email and then invite them to my home to enjoy all it has to offer, it fills my day with joy. We did become good friends through back and forth emails since they booked about a year ago, and probably wanted to make sure I didn't run away with their deposit, LOL! I'm not making any guarantees, but perhaps I should add to the features of the house that its quite possible someone might get engaged at the house, as it has happened before! Perhaps there is something in the water, but i promise its just a salt water pool :) I hope to have the pleasure to host this family again so that they can make even more memories in Palm Springs, they are wonderful and delightful to work with.

Wonderful Palm Springs home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this wonderful home and found it just want we wanted. From our first contact with the owner we were treated as we would expect at a 5 star resort. He loves his home and sharing it with others and that comes across both in how he dealt with us and how he maintains his home. Even though the weather was rainy and cloudy most of the time, we very much enjoyed just relaxing with the fireplace on and looking at the beautiful back yard and hearing the waterfalls. While we were only 2 people, we could easily see how this would also be a perfect home to vacation with our family. We have had some bad experiences with rentals not living up to the photos and descriptions, but this was not the case here...it was exactly as presented.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure hosting this couple, they were the perfect guests that anyone would be happy to have stay at their home. I'm glad I was able to accommodate them when they had to change their vacation plans due to the hurricane damage in Cabo; as my life is truly enriched by having their acquaintance as well. Hope to host them again, but any VRBO owner would be delighted to have them visit.

What a Way to Enjoy a Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Canada and never before renting a vacation home I was a little nervous about making "blind arrangements" through VRBO but Bill made this experience nothing short of exceptional. I felt like I was being taken care of by a five star hotel. Bill was prompt, professional, and polite responding to any and all email requests I had. At not one point did I feel left in the dark. Since our first email exchange I immediately felt like I was dealing with a trustworthy person and he stayed true to everything he and his rental agreement outlined. I don't ever anticipate having a better experience with a private booking unless I'm renting again through Bill sometime in the future.

As soon as you approach the front door of this property you know you're going to be spoiled during your stay. The pictures don't do the overall house any justice but you do get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the backyard, kitchen and common areas. All the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable for all guests and then there's the master bedroom, it's simply amazing. It's in a wing of itself - private and away from the rest of the house. It would be nice if the patio doors off the master bedroom were tinted or had curtains for full privacy but I was just blown away from what we were getting as an overall package. I found the audio and video system a little confusing to use (and I don't consider myself someone that has troubles with electronics) even though a binder with instruction was provided. Once it's up and running the system was fine to use and I was able to call the owner and/or property manager with any questions at anytime so I was not lost.

Overall this house the service and owner were all well above what I was expecting.

Owner's Response: I'm deeply humbled by this guest's praises and pleased that my attention to detail in making sure from the moment someone inquires about the property to the day after they leave is a positive experience. I consider each of my guest's as friends and want them to have great memories of the time that I could extend my home to them. Although we have installed an impressive audio/visual system in the home, and supposedly the easiest remote system to operate it (Control 4), if you don't use Control 4 regularly, it is indeed foreign to most people. Every time i go down to the house myself, i have to get re-acquainted with it, but once i do, its easy to operate. Note: this is the second automated system we have installed to handle the various options available to control the audio/visual for the two zones in the house as well as the entire backyard, and believe it or not, it is actually much simpler to use than the first one. I guess we just have too many options to control, however Greg the property mgr is available to answer your questions. This was a great group to have stay at the house, and I was equally nervous since their stay was over the Coachella Music Festival weekend. Both our 'intuitions' turned out great and glad they were able to come down, and always welcome to come back.
