About the property

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

Imagine yourself unwinding in our desert sanctuary while enjoying the spectacular sunset after a perfect day of golf. After dinner, perhaps prepared on the back-yard grill or in our gourmet kitchen, you may find yourself stargazing the desert night sky from a soothing Jacuzzi just steps from the master suite.

If you prefer dining out, you are minutes away from both affordable and world class upscale dining. Our desert oasis is within a 10-mile radius of 120 world-class golf courses. Tennis courts, full service day spas, theaters, movies, and shopping are minutes away.

If you prefer to stay in your bathrobe and slippers, you can watch a movie in our dedicated home theater room with 120-inch screen and surround sound system. As night falls, you'll rest peacefully in a spacious master suite with king-size bed, fireplace and adjoining master bath with 'couples shower' and jetted tub.

With the start of your new day, you may choose to work out by playing tennis at nearby Whitewater Park or breath the fresh morning air while hiking the nearby mountain trail. You may fill your days from a menu of outdoor activities or choose to relax at home by the pool. Our home is yours year around!

This is our personal second home. Unlike many other homes that are one of ten listings for an investor, we have cared for it and maintained it with great attention to detail.

Our home is approximately 3800sf (350 square meter) and has a total of 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It is all on a single level and is handicap accessible. It can comfortably sleep 8 adults. Every bedroom has a private full bathroom.

If you are familiar with the area, this home is located adjacent to the most prestigious and exclusive address in the desert...Clancy Lane. It is also walking distance from The River Entertainment complex with outdoor restaurants, shopping and theater.

There is one week minimum rental on this property.

About The Owner

I am an orthopedic surgeon who currently practices in Salt Lake City, UT. My wife Emily is a physician assistant, who practices part time and is currently spending majority of her time taking caring of our beautiful twins, Jack and Isabel. This is our 2nd home which we hope we can share with families and guests across the globe.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Rancho Mirage

I was in an orthopedic practice in Rancho Mirage, CA between 2002 and 2007. This home was our primary residence during that time. We moved back to Salt Lake City, UT after our children were born, to be closer to our family. We chose to keep this property as a second home with complete furnishings.

What makes this house unique

The accomodations at our home, in terms of furnishings, space and privacy cannot me matched by any hotel, at any price in the desert. Our kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, pots and pans, spices, etc. All you need is fresh ingredients to make wonderful home cooked meals. Our back yard is very private with covered sitting area and a great pool with a hot tub.

We enjoyed 9 superb days at this beautiful home. The house was immaculate with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel....except with loads of space and privacy. Great location and loved the pool. Very helpful welcoming hosts. Will definitely be back here.

Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our three adult children, stayed in this lovely home for a month; it was the perfect choice for us. We all enjoyed the amenities of the home, especially the gourmet kitchen which was well equipped for family meals. The pool and spa and patio area are gorgeous. Our hosts, Emily and Armen, went out of the way to make us feel comfortable. They were gracious enough to solve a slight "technical problem" in timely and generous way. Thank you for your attentiveness. And the location was a big plus for us-- close to restaurants, shopping and entertainment. We were so thrilled with the area, we decided to relocate out there!!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for 9 wonderful days. The house was spacious, clean, well equipped and very well maintained. We enjoyed our morning coffees on the patio area outside watching the sunrise. Most of our time was spent splashing in the pool or relaxing poolside enjoying the mountain views. Our 20 month old daughter loved running around the large grass area and admiring the beautifully landscaped yard.

Location is perfect, both private and close to all amenities. The owners were readily available for questions and helped make our stay relaxing and comfortable. We can't wait to return to this piece of paradise!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a long weekend at this beautiful, upscale home. What a great

place for a relaxing getaway just 2-1/2 hours from our home. The owners were very responsive to our questions. The home is very spacious & relaxing. The Kitchen is full

stocked & the home has many pool toys for the kids to use. The kids enjoyed playing in the backyard pool & spa area. They were able to skateboard on the quiet,

no traffic street with a gated entrance & exit. Since we've spent a lot of time

in the Palm Springs area, we spent most of the time just relaxing. For those who like

convenience, The River (restaurants & shops) is only 1/2 mile away and El Paso (upscale

shopping) is about 2-3 miles away. Tommy Bahama (order the coconut shrimp appetizer)

and Ruth Chris are some excellent restaurants in the area. Thanks for a relaxing weekend.

Yearly Family get-together in Rancho Mirage

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our annual get-together for four generations of family members. The owner, Armen, made the rental process simple and timely. The residence is located in a quiet area and yet you are within easy access of the "River Complex" and the casino. The house was clean and well-maintained. The movie room was a hit for the whole family. The directions and information sheet, allowed us to quickly use all the wonderful ammenities. I would go on, but then I wouldn't be able to rent it next time. Thanks again, Armen, for allowing to use your family's home.
