About Mike M

Owner operated.

Mike M purchased this house in 2008

Why Mike M chose Indio

On the lake. Rare in the desert. It doesn't get any better then this.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for the family or even a girls getaway. Hang out by the private pool or sunbath on the dock. Those snowbirds are going to love it here! This lake property is by far the best view in the area.

So Memorable - In a Good Way

  • 5 of 5

Sometime, things just work-out perfect. My two sons and I come to Palm Desert/Indio for our annual spring-break golf outing. Had never been to this area, so really had no idea where to stay/what to do. And did we ever get lucky.

We'd initially searched for houses in Palm Springs. When we extended our search to Palm Desert/Indio, this was the first house we saw. In my opinion, the house is better than advertised on VRBO. The reservation process was extremely prompt and reliable. Instructions for arrival were delivered well in advance and made 'check-in' extremely simple - just had to drive to the security gate at entrance. We had some last minute changes with number of cars, and need for additional parking passes, and the owner was VERY accommodating.

The house, itself, was beautiful. Is was spotlessly clean and very comfortable for us four golfers. It's in a beautiful location and relaxing on the deck overlooking the lake was simply perfect for afternoon drinks and evening BBQ's. The rooms were spacious and kitchen was very well equipped.

Lastly, checking-out was also very simple. I especially liked that any unused food be left so that it could be taken to local food shelters - always seems such a waste to throw everything away.

We ended-up having to leave one day early but am already planing to return next year and stay here.

Breath-taking views!!

  • 5 of 5

Annual Family Vacation. This year we chose the Gem of Terra Lago and are so glad we did. We have stayed at only top rated vacation rentals in the past but this one was voted by each family member as our favorite.

The condo is exactly as represented in the ad. The views are breath-taking. Relaxing in the hot tub watching nightly sunsets over the lake to the sounds of distant coyotes in the mountains is surreal

The furnishings are top notch and Mike provides everything you could possibly need.

Close to all amenities. Short drive to Palm Springs, Palm Desert and only 2 hrs. From L.A.

We have never re-visited any previous vacation rentals we have experienced but will definately be back to this one. So impressed we are considering looking into purchasing a lot on the lake ourselves.

Thanks Mike for sharing your beautiful home with all your vacation renters.

To those considering renting this unit you will not be dissapointed!

Top Notch!! 5 Star!! Gold crown!!

  • 5 of 5

This Place is great in all aspects! The best view in the desert, you are not stuck in a neighborhood looking at a box with houses all around you. This place is on a lake with beautiful views of mountains. Very nice amenities inside as well! This was our second year renting this and we have locked down an 11 day stay for 2015. The owner Mike is very nice and easy to get a hold of for questions. Highly recommend this for your vacation…..but we have spring break 2015!!LOL

It's 5 O'clock Somewhere

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 had an absolutley awesome vacation at this beautiful lakefront home. We already we're looking to book it during November but sad to see it's already gone. We'll definitely be back.

Home is very close to Fantasy Springs Casino, shopping centers, etc. Salt water pool and lounge area were great to cool off in the sun. A/C and ceiling fans kept the place very cool. Step down bar, wine chiller fridge and margarita machine kept Mommy and Daddy VERY relaxed.

We never felt cramped in the home. Very spacious. The neighborhood is real quiet too. Awesome sunsets from the dock. We were also able to bring our small dog which was a nice bonus. Fun taking evening walks around the lake!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, beautiful, with something for everyone. The pool and outdoor area offered a lot of fun. I didn't try it out, but there is even a kayak to take on the lake! For those who can't take the summer heat, indoors offers central air and a HUGE flat screen! Kitchen was great to prepare and cook our meals and while we only used the master, all of the bedrooms looked immaculate. I would and have already recommended this house to my family and friends. And I absolutely would love to stay here again, without any hesitation!
