Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Rancho Mirage - Mar'TEE'ni Dreams

Single family home with private yard, newly updated in the ideal desert location

Adults and children alike LOVE Mar'TEE'ni Dreams, our warm and welcoming family vacation home. There are two suites, with attached baths and walk in closets, plus two other queen bedrooms. Check out our custom mosaic tile pool, huge spa, two patios, two fireplaces (indoor and outdoor) and citrus trees, all within walking distance to The River, Roy's, Acqua Pazza and a five minute drive to El Paseo's shopping and dining and the Westfield Mall in Palm Desert. Or grab your water bottle and walk straight to the popular Bump and Grind Trail for a morning hike. We have the best location in the desert!

We are new to this listing site but have been renting since 2010.

As you enter the front door, your eyes are drawn to a stunning rock faced 'fire and ice' fireplace surrounded by comfy seating. The living room also features a new 40” LED television equipped with Netflix and Pandora. Or head to the cozy den to read, watch TV or browse the games, puzzles, books and cards stocked for quick entertainment.

An updated, well equipped kitchen features everything you might find in your own home PLUS a martini bar and a breakfast nook with seating for six, opening out onto the pool patio. A formal dining room seats eight.

Other amenities include high speed wireless internet, washer/dryer, garage, lots of off street parking, high quality linens, nicely furnished patios, gas BBQ. We also offer a 'house stocking' service: we will fill the fridge from your list prior to your arrival, so you can settle in poolside and relax!

Mar’TEE’ni Dreams is a quiet retreat, the future retirement home of the professional couple who own and manage it.

About Kate Sandman

My husband and I bought Mar'TEE'ni Dreams for our future retirement and have spent many hours renovating it and adding the touches that we would want to see in a vacation home. We love the desert because it is filled with friendly people, has sunshine year round and is a wonderful escape from Big City life. We recently purchased a second home in the neighborhood, which we are also renovating in the MidCentury style.

Kate Sandman purchased this house in 2009

Why Kate Sandman chose Rancho Mirage

Mar'TEE'ni Dreams was a tired property in need of TLC when we bought it in 2009. But we could see the potential in the large yard (although with mostly dead plants!), pool, citrus trees and with the bones of the 1962 MidCentury home that it was. The views from the garden spa are terrific -- especially at Happy Hour -- and we love watching the wild birds who frequent our newly landscaped desert garden and bird baths.

What makes this house unique

Everyone remarks on our beautiful ocotillos, which are a type of tall desert cactus which bloom in orange red flowers during the year. Our gardeners say they are the largest they have ever seen, at least 50 years old!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely home in a great location. It's truly like your home away from home - the kitchen has everything (and more) you need. Clean house, comfortable beds, lovely linens, and lots of beach towels for the pool. The hosts were very accommodating, and really wanted us to have a great vacation - and we did! We definitely would stay here again for another girls getaway.

Owner's Response: We very much enjoyed hosting a "girls getaway" (plus baby) at Mar'TEE'ni Dreams. Whether going out, staying in, hanging poolside or walking in our peaceful neighborhood, we aspire to have our guests feel like they are in their home away from home. Thanks to Lexie for such a lovely review.
