Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Racquet Club West - The Galvan Estate

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8-10

Welcome to paradise! This custom built luxury estate is located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs. With four spacious bedrooms, this 3,000 square foot home is situated on an enclosed three quarter acre lot providing complete privacy. This estate provides all the modern amenities, comforts and elegant appointments. Views of the San Jacinto Mountains from the back yard are breathtaking!

When you enter this residence, the sound of the waterfall feature is sure to calm your nerves. You will feel a sense of openness entering the living room as you view the unbelievable pool and backyard looking through the vanishing pocket doors that merge the indoor and outdoor living! The living room contains a step down bar complete with sink/refrigerator/icemaker and barstools. A leather sofa, a 50' LCD TV and a surround sound system completes this beautiful entrance. A formal dining room with seating for up to eight people is next to the living room.

The private backyard contains one of the largest free-form salt water pools in Palm Springs! It is surrounded by lush landscaping including an array of palm trees, queen palms, mesquite trees and grass. Features include a beach entry, tanning ledge, bench seating, a raised spa, multiple spillways, a double-sided waterfall, and multi-color lighting. Additionally, there are five bar stools inside the pool next to a swim up fire pit. This is truly a phenomenal pool!

Also in the backyard is a sunken beach sand volleyball pit. There is a full basketball court and a three-hole putting green. A large fire pit with bench seating accommodates ten people and is a great place to relax and have a glass of wine while taking in the view of the mountains. There is also a BBQ island with a 52' gas grill with additional components.

The 720 sq. ft. covered entertainment area in the backyard contains a cocktail bar, refrigerator, ice cooler, sink, TV, and Kegorator. Fourteen barstools surround the granite top counter.

This vacation home is perfect for an array of functions including photo and movie shoots, weddings, corporate events/retreats, extended rentals or simply a relaxing getaway with friends or family. Please contact the owner for inquiries. For additional photos and information about the estate

Ideal for relaxation and fun.

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideal for a large Family getaway or a girls - boys weekend-week.

The home itself is pretty secluded it has a great sound system in the back and throughout the entire home. More TVs than you could ever dream of, we asked to watch a fight that happened to be playing on the weekend we were there and the owner was very accommodating.

The kitchen is well stocked if you like to cook or if you want to have a barbecue this is the place to do it. I went with just my daughters (22 and 24) so the house was slightly large for just the three of us,this home has the potential for huge events and I see why -

The backyard is phenomenal the pictures don't do it justice.

Arnold the owner and Marvin the gentleman who helped us with check in could not have been more kind and helpful. Your are very close to town and great restaurants as well.

There are bikes and in addition to the Volleyball,Basketball, huge pool and putting green outside the garage is fully stocked with fun activities as well as four bicycles and a life size Jenga game. Needless to say, something for everyone. The home was very clean, and well maintained. The couches were brand-new. I'd recommend bringing a pillow if you can, that would be my only suggestion, they were a little thin for me, but That's pretty standard in rental homes. Everything else was phenomenal.

Fantastic House and Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this property. Everything about the stay was first class. Arnold was excellent to deal with and always answered questions promptly. The property management team on site was also top notch.

The house ... unreal! Beautiful house with all the amenities you need. Completely wired, great kitchen, lots of space, and tons of extras.

As good as the house was, the backyard was even better. It is literally like your own private oasis. Views of the mountains. Unbelievable pool and hot tub. Basketball and volleyball were great. Backyard kitchen that seats a ton of people. You won't want to leave this property when there. Would do it again in heartbeat.

Where do we begin...

We had our wedding at the Galvan Estate, and other then the freak wind storm (can't control that of course) the weekend was PERFECT. Arnold (The owner) is unbelievably easy to work with and communicate with. We had a million question leading up to the big weekend, and he answered every email and text. Amazing. Marvin (The property manager) is absolutely the best. He was so attentive to our needs and explained how everything on the property ran and was always there if/when we needed him. The day of our wedding could not have ran as smooth as it did without him. The estate is truly one of a kind. Here we are a month later and we still have people telling us how beautiful everything was. We are planning a weekend trip back soon so we can enjoy the estate without the stress of our wedding :-) Thank you again to Arnold, Marvin, and everyone at The Galvan Estate!!!!

Wow, what an amazing weekend. We booked this estate for our girlfriend's bachelorette weekend and it exceeded our expectations. The management team was so wonderful to work with and really made us feel at home. The one of a kind amenities were top notch. 100% recommend this location for a fun-filled getaway.
