About the property

Home, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the tranquil Tuscany neighborhood in Rancho Mirage! This very special single family home is just moments away from shopping and fine dining (El Paseo and The River), nightlife (McCallum Theater, first class casino hotels, theaters and live music venues), plus an abundance of recreational activities (golf-tennis-pickleball and more).

The Owners here travel frequently to Europe and have transformed this expansive property into a Tuscan villa...From the furnishings and artwork to the fabulous backyard, boasting custom stone patio, numerous water features, outdoor kitchen, grape arbors, citrus trees plus large dining gazebo with massive Tuscan-style farmhouse table with seating for all your family and friends.

The floorplan is open and inviting, including a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances plus all the necessities any chef would relish, with attached wet bar and separate eating area overlooking the warm family room and patio area. In addition there is a well appointed formal dining area and living room off the main entry.

The home features three large bedrooms, two with queen beds and private baths, and the the third, the master suite, offers en suite spa bathroom plus king sized bed,romantic fireplace, walk-in closet, HDTV and direct access to the rear yard.

And for those cozy nights at home, the media offerings include a 65' SHDTV (making 4 TVs in all!) with Blu-Ray DVD Player, Apple TV, and Bose sound system. A Yamaha electric piano with Karaoke microphone also awaits the musically inclined in your group.

The residence sits behind custom wrought iron security gates, and the neighborhood, which is also gated, is highlighted by a community pool and children's playground. Comfort, luxury and security in a magical setting...this is truly a unique property, created for those who appreciate the beauty of Tuscany!

About John Cox

I moved to Newport Beach California in1961 from Lincoln Nebraska. After 40 years on the coast spending many a weekend in the desert I couldn't resist the opportunity to buy this property. Now this vacation rental gives me the opportunity to spend more time in Tuscany Italy.

John Cox purchased this house in 2010

Why John Cox chose Rancho Mirage

I am fond of Tuscany Italy. Especially Arezzo and the San Fabiano Estate near the Medicean Vasari Aqueduct built in 1600 (Pictured above) When I found this property in Rancho Mirage Tuscany I thought it was an omen. It has the feel of Italy with all the American amenities.

What makes this house unique

I love the Tuscan style of this home and neighborhood. The home sits on a lot that looks like a compound with its own private gate. The exterior has an Italian feel with it pergolas and olive trees, waterfall rock garden patio, and cypress trees. The interior has a very Italian feel with its design and furnishings. It is a very quiet and comfortable place to reside.

A private swimming pool and hot tub is being added this summer - 2018.

Very nice house with an intimate backyard. It is well located in a very quiet and safe Gated community. John is very nice. We can easily join him, if necessary.

We would return without hesitation.

Absolutely loved our 5 week stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending several weeks each winter in the Coachella valley now for several years. This was our first VRBO experience, and it was excellent! This Tuscan Estate is located in a quiet, gated community with easy access and ample parking for our F350 crew cab. The owners, John and Joy, were professional, helpful, courteous, and gracious. This spacious, 3 BR, 3 bath home is superbly furnished and decorated with original and classic art work, family video collection, 75" HDTV, and library. The kitchen and pantry are well equipped with cookware, staples, and table service for large family gatherings. Our two, adult children joined us for Christmas week and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our 5 week stay passed all to quickly! We have signed up for a 6 week stay next winter, and will be back.... God willing and the creek don't rise!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at John's home! Beautifully decorated inside & out. We had everything we needed & more. Very comfortable & close to Costco, golf courses & the airport. We especially enjoyed the relaxing backyard & patio area with the outdoor grill, garden, ponds & hummingbirds. We will definitely be coming back to John's home next time we are in the Rancho Mirage area.

Amazing and more!

Absolutely amazing. The house has everything you need. It is fully stocked with amenities and top appliances. The outdoor yard is peaceful! It is so much more than the pictures show. We will definitely stay here again. It is also a very safe gated community and close to everything.
