Space 1,800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

My home is close to Palm Springs , Coachella, 2 airports, 3 casinos, private golf course, groceries, mall, etc. You’ll love my home! It has a Brand New Salt Water Pool / Hot Tub, Full Gourmet Kitchen with Granite Counters, Gated Community w/Private Security 24hrs/day, Handicap access shower / Bathroom, Jacuzzi Bathtub, 3 Fireplaces (gas), Outdoor Grill. My home is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids).


This home was originally built by a custom home builder, to be his own home. It was built with top of the line everything, with high ceilings and an open floor plan. Located on a cul-de-sac, the front includes a gated courtyard and the 6 car garage will easily fit a couple cars, should you happen to need it! The backyard space is easily maintainable and includes a Brand New (salt water) pool and spa that everyone loves. Do you want to bask in the sun? The pool has a "tanning shelf" with an umbrella. Controls for the spa are remote. If it's a little chilly outside, start warming the spa from the warmth of the house using the remote spa tablet, inside the house. If you like to cook, you'll love the kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops! The professional grade Dacor gas range includes 6 burners, a large griddle, bread warmers and a vented hood with LED Halogen lighting. Of course there is also an oven and convection/microwave oven as well as refrigerator in the kitchen. The large island allows for great buffet style entertaining or use as more prep/work space, even a breakfast bar. The master bedroom is huge with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, two sinks and a large walk-in closet. One of the three fireplaces in the house is next to the Jacuzzi tub and creates a natural separation between the bathroom and the sleeping area. Sliding doors in the master bedroom open to the backyard, just steps away from the wonderful spa. If you have a large group/family, the master bedroom has ample space for air mattresses to accommodate additional guests. The livingroom has a large flatscreen TV with Yamaha surround sound, Time Warner Cable and free WiFi for the house. The TV is a "smart" TV, so you can access any Netflix/Hulu/Amazon account if you have one. The laundry area and a sink are located in the garage. The neighborhood is gated with 24hr private security. Grocery stores, restaurants and a Starbucks are just down the street with the 10 Frwy about a mile away. I have my home professionally cleaned before & after every guests' visit. If you find anything not as clean as you would expect, please let us know! I'm not a landlord, this home is my 2nd home and was my father's. I want you to feel comfortable & enjoy your stay so you will return!

Guest access

The entire home is at your disposal with two minor exceptions that shouldn't have any effect on you enjoying your stay. First, inside the house there is a small room off the living area that will be locked and there is no access to it. Second, in the garage there are many cabinets, most of which will be locked. The garage is quite large and there may be items in the garage under tarps, this is not to be accessed by guests. There will be 1 or 2 cars in the garage that "live" there, but there will still be room for at least one car in the garage, possibly 2.

Guest interaction

Of course I am available to help you out during your stay. In addition, there is a "Home Manual" located in the house that includes very much information about the home, emergency numbers, information about nearby businesses and much more.

Neighborhood overview

The neighborhood is upscale, gated & quiet, a wonderful destination for your trip to the Palm Springs area!

Getting around

The 10 Frwy is approximately a mile away and Bermuda Dunes Airport is just down the street.

Other things to note

Since my home is in a gated community, it's easier to meet new guests at the nearby Starbucks and have them follow me into the neighborhood to get checked in. The Starbucks is very close to the house. As you can imagine, heating an entire pool of water takes time and a bit of money. If you're visiting during the cooler months of the year and want to heat the pool, not just the spa, that is an option. It is an additional $25.00 per day and is added to your reservation once your reservation is confirmed, so it all still goes through Home Away. So, if you would like a heated pool during your stay, let me know when you make your reservation.

Lovely home, beautiful patio and pool!

  • 5 of 5

Charlie McHugh is a fabulous host, his home in Bermuda Dunes was lovely. It was easy to find, the neighborhood was quiet, easy to navigate and close to everything we wanted to do while in the area. The home itself, is well appointed, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a great vacation. The pool and patio are fabulous, the perfect weather allowed us the time to enjoy being outside sitting in comfort. thank you Charlie for everything!

Clean, Quiet, Great Condition...

  • 5 of 5

Description on VRBO was accurate. Older home in a gated community on a very quiet culdesac. Home has been well maintained and was well cleaned prior to our arrival. Homeowner asked daily via text message if we had questions / issues (we had none). Remote control for the pool and whirlpool made for unusually easy operation of both. Supermarkets about a block away were very convenient. Fruit trees in the neighbors’ yards donated fresh fruit - a nice treat if you are there at the right time of the year.

Nits: (1) Blinds from the living room to back patio are hard to operate. (2) Water pressure in the master shower was too much of a good thing. (3) Instructions with the house provide clear indication how to operate living room TV - no such documentation for master bedroom TV. (4) Pool pump / heater equipment is opposite side of wall from master bedroom headboard and was an issue for a light sleeper. That said, use the remote to shut off pool equipment and sound problem goes away. Pool equipment turns itself on 0715 each morning automatically. (5) Large east facing frosted glass window for master bathroom has no window covering - hard to sleep in if sunlight causes you to wake up.

We had fun enjoying the house and exploring the greater Palm Springs area. We look forward to coming back.

Perfect Desert Family Property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our wonderful stay at this beautiful Bermuda Dunes Home. My family and I always stay at VRBO homes when we travel and this one was top-notch. Its especially nice when a VRBO feels like a vacation rental, and not as if you kicked the owners out of their house for a few days. This house was clearly prepared to make out of town guests feel at home. Charlie, the owner, could not have been more helpful and welcoming as was his property manager Justin. The home was immaculate, comfortable and convenient to all our desert valley visits and activities. And, as a bonus, the pool was a warm welcome winter swim. Thanks Charlie! We'll be back!

It’s always a pleasure to host exceptional clients Very sincerely, Charlie
