About Scott Shanstrom

I grew up in Montana and several friends were involved with and owned dude ranches, historical resorts and guide services - I guided fly fishing on the Yellowstone River through High School and College. I've always liked the idea of travelers coming from all corners to experience and share wonderful places. In addition, I’ve traveled extensively for work and have stayed in a wide variety of accommodations, making note of what I appreciate and look for in accommodations which I work to provide in my vacation rental properties.

We have had a vacation home in Rancho Mirage for several years and each time we had to head back to the Pacific Northwest, we found it more and more difficult to leave the desert and all that it so famously offers. Fairly recently, the opportunity arose to locate to the Desert as our main residence. I liked the idea of developing properties as vacation homes for clients to enjoy, but be able to come and go without having to deal with and worry about maintenance, opening & closing the vacation home, managing services, and all of the ongoing expenses of owning a vacation home. Come, enjoy, relax, and leave everything to us and we'll keep the home ready for your next visit! Worry Free!!

Scott Shanstrom purchased this house in 2011

Why Scott Shanstrom chose California Desert

After much looking and comparisons, we chose Rancho Mirage, and specifically the Tamarisk Country Club area, for our vacation home due to its impeccable reputation for its safety, elegance, sophisticated yet relaxed lifestyle, a stunning setting and this neighborhood’s protection from the valley winds. We wanted a home easy to live in that was conducive to indoor- outdoor living & entertaining. In addition, we were looking for maximum privacy along with a quiet setting away from all main arterial traffic noises. We were very fortunate to find all of this along with the added bonus of an enormous lot that adds to the exclusivity and enjoyment of very private indoor-outdoor desert living at its best.

What makes this house unique

This home has been remodeled and set up exclusively as a vacation home....no feeling like you are camping out in someone elses home but instead your very own private resort....without all the people....I live just down the street - we love it here!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Thank goodness I did my research and found Scott. I have been using VRBO for 5years and I have always had great places to stay. This topped them all. Not only was the house beautiful but it had everything we needed, the pool was amazing and Scott was responsive to our needs. Thank you and I would highly recommend staying at Villa de Blanca!

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Scott's rental. It was super clean, had great linens, a comfy bed and a well equipped kitchen. The pool and yard were lovely and extremely private. Scott was a great host. When we had a problem with phoning long distance, he rectified the issue quickly. He was very respectful of our space, while being responsive to any questions we had. We'd definitely recommend this VRBO to others.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights from Sept 19 to Sept 25, at this wonderful home and couldn't have been more happy with our decision.

From the time of first contacting Scott to the time we checked out Scott was always available. He was there to meet us and he showed us all through the house and how to operate the air conditioning and pool controls. He then showed up at the time we checked out and we handed back the keys (wishing we could have stayed longer).

The house is beautiful and spotless from top to bottom. The house is fully stocked, all you will need is your clothes and some food if you want to cook. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of towels for the bathrooms and for the pool.

The backyard is private and quite, the covered patio was one of my favourite places to be. Sitting out there reading on the comfortable patio furniture is a great way to spend a few hours.

We loved the area it is has a lot to offer. Lots of places to do your grocery shopping and too many restaurants to chose from.

We can't wait to come back and enjoy this house again or maybe one of the other of Scott's locations. I highly recommend Scott, you won't be disappointed in interacting with him.

Thanks again Scott.

Fabulous Desert Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Scott's attention to detail throughout the property, the simple, yet stylish, landscape design, and the comfortable interiors make this a great vacation experience. Since selling my Rancho Mirage home in 2013, I have always wondered if I wanted to buy another one. Since Scott has three fantastic Rancho Mirage haciendas, I love being a vacation renter!

Thanks Scott!

Tamarisk Country Club addition is a very quiet and safe neighborhood and highly sought after due to the natural protection from the majority of desert winds. The night desert sky has been thoughtfully preserved with very few street lights to showcase the amazing star viewing. The Tamarisk addition offers very quiet streets for morning and evening walks (or both!). A really great neighborhood for touring via bikes and beautiful landscaping and many architecturally recognized homes. From this home and neighborhood there is easy access to Palm Springs Airport, groceries, shopping and restaurants and the annual Coachella Valley events. This home is centrally located between downtown Palm Springs and Palm Desert - just blocks off of highway 111.
