About Audrey Takoski

We are a family of 4, from Victoria, British Columbia.

We are restauranteurs and love to cook. We also love to hike, walk,play tennis, read: all fun to do around our home in Victoria and in the desert! (Audrey is also an artist and you will see a lot of her original work in the home)

Audrey Takoski purchased this house in 2010

Why Audrey Takoski chose Indian Wells

We fell in love with the desert on a visit to watch the BNP Tennis Open in Indian Wells in 2009. We bought this home with the intention of finishing the reno and selling it, but fell in love with it after we furnished and decorated it. We take great pride in keeping this luxury home and its content's in pristine shape, and get a lot of compliments regarding this.

What makes this house unique

We have an awesome meet and greet property manager, Joe, to welcome you and show you through the home, and will be available anytime if there is a question or concern to help make your stay as relaxing as possible! You will leave with the memory of the beautiful mountain views and the peaceful and quiet location of our home!

A beautiful house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by Audrey's home in the desert. Not only was it beautifully furnished, but it had absolutely everything we needed in the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and around the stunning pool/outdoor living space.

We were 2 couples and 2 adult children so the 4 bedrooms were perfect for us. We loved the open living spaces and the fact that the entire house has floor to ceiling windows with an amazing view of the mountains made it truly a special place to be.

We have rented many homes around the world, and it's safe to say this was the best.

The location was perfect for exploring the area- an easy drive to Palm Springs, Indian Wells, El Paseo Drive, Joshua Tree, etc..

Audrey was very responsive (by email) and easy to deal with, as was Joe the property manager, who met us at the house when we arrived. We didn't have any problems at all.

We hope to be able to rent the house again!

Couldn't have loved it more-perfect desert vaca!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at this beautiful & pristine home!! Everything about it was truly perfection, including the stunning mountain views. The home is insanely clean & perfectly maintained, and had everything we were looking for. The pool, hot tub & firepit were fantastic and we made great use of it all! The interior is not only impeccably decorated but also extremely comfortable. We had a group of 8 and felt like we all had plenty of space. The bedrooms were excellent - very comfy beds & linens - and all bathrooms perfectly clean & spacious. The owner was excellent to work with, and a quick communicator! Her stunning artwork is such a fun add to the experience of the home. I almost regret posting this review because we don't want this gem to get snatched up before we can book our next trip :) Will absolutely be back - thank you Audrey & Matthew for letting us enjoy your fabulous home in the desert!!

Modern Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay in this gorgeous home. It offered the perfect combination of central location, great backyard sun exposure, and all of the comforts of home (albeit a very luxurious home that you will never want to leave). I am still marveling at how a vacation rental could be so clean and well-maintained. Kudos to you, Audrey, for your great choice in a property manager...Joe was wonderful! I have already recommended your home to others and would definitely stay there again.

This house is beautiful, modern and large, yet warm and cozy, and enough space to entertain our family. Owners and property manager were extremely nice and responsive. The outdoor area was wonderful, we spent a lot of time outside and loved it - difficult to leave this home!
