About Desert Ridge Estate

We wanted to make this home the number one place to visit in the desert. While vacationing here prior to becoming the new owners we looked for ways to improve on what was already beyond amazing. A vacation is important and we want everyone who comes here to have the best experience possible. Family and friends are valuable and spending quality time with them is the most important thing for us.

Desert Ridge Estate purchased this house in 2011

Why Desert Ridge Estate chose Indio

I grew up in the desert area. I missed the peaceful nights where you can actual see the stars. The mountain views are breathtaking and the privacy of this Estate is ideal for our private get aways with friends and family. The activities are endless and we never leave once we're there.

If we do decide to leave ,we’re just minutes away from several world class golf resorts, the famous Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the Empire Polo Club and the heart of Palm Desert which offers incredible shopping, top notch entertainment, and unbelievable international dining experiences.

A New Standard for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything we could have possibly wanted. Let's start with the private lake. (In a dessert.) Eye candy, especially right after the sun sets behind nearby mountains. Then there's the patio where we spent a lot of time just hangin out. They have misters to keep things cool during the day (a clear indication that the folks who built this place, did so with entertaining in mind). Then there's the game room. (I mean, "I had me at private lake," but fair enough, let's press on.) The game room has shuffleboard (amazing), darts, a pool table, ping pong, foosball, a sit-down arcade console (with a variety of old-school games), and a poker table. Then there's the "cinema room" where they have a giant projector screen and a sofa. We ended up not making use of this because we were too busy enjoying the game room and pool and lake. Oh and the pool is fabulous also. Pool and hot tub. A chef's kitchen. Lots of bedrooms, nice bathrooms. Lots of acreage (we setup a volleyball net, and it was awesome). The property is fabulous, it's very much as good as it seems in pictures, and possibly even nicer. My communication with the property manager "Marie" was absolutely seamless, she answered every single question I had promptly, was helpful throughout the process, as were the folks who were physically there on the property to check us in and help out during our stay in case we needed anything. We were researching a few other properties before we made our choice and we had reviewed a few other contracts. Their contract struck me as the most even-handed and fair of the bunch (which is simply to say that you may encounter other similar-seeming options which much more frustratingly restrictive terms).

We ended up with an incredible memory, to celebrate a special occasion. Highly recommend.

Everything We Hoped

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience. My wife and I planned our wedding extravaganza at Desert Ridge, to include a five-day stay leading up to the wedding event. We invited our family and friends to join us and party with us, lounge at the pool, share cocktails and catered meals, play games, and basically just "live it up". I have to say, choosing Desert Ridge as the place to do launch our crazy idea was one of the best decisions we ever made. Not only are the grounds, the amenities, and the gorgeous estate itself worth every penny, but the staff from top-to-bottom were exceptional. They were accommodating and helpful at every turn, and even with an event as complicated as a five-day wedding gala, we were so grateful to feel we were in the competent and caring hands of folks who genuinely cared. They proved to be indispensable to the success of our event.

I could go on and on raving about every detail of our wonderful experience, but I will merely say that we were beyond thrilled. The only issue we have now is in figuring out how we can gather all our friends to do it again next year!

Great spot to relax and have some fun with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from securing the property up through departure was seamless. Marie was great to work with and accommodated our request for an early check in as part of the group was arriving early. The grounds were perfect for what we needed, and all the amenities were there (and then some!). Would definitely recommend and can't wait for a trip back!
