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 2012

Why Scott Shanstrom chose Rancho Mirage

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 feeling like you are camping out in someone else's home but instead your very own private resort....without all the people!

We as a family had gone to Palm Springs before and had a rather unpleasant experience with bugs, so our main concern was to make sure the place we were renting from was a house, had a beautiful outdoor setting that was properly taken care of and fumigated. This property was amazing and Scott was sooo awesome!! Everything we had hoped for was met above and beyond our expectations. The house is quite central to everything, 5-10 minute drive and you’re in downtown. The house is in perstine condition and didn’t feel like it was lived in which was great because it didn’t feel like we were vacationing in somebody else’s home. The backyard is beyond flawless! The layout is perfect and the pool is refreshing. Scott is so helpful and kind, and really made us feel comfortable. Even when we had a slight issue that we needed help sorting out Scott was so quickly to our aid. Will 100% be back to this property and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of going to Palm Springs!

Wished we could stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

What a comfortable and relaxing property! Our stay was so enjoyable, it was tough to leave. Location seemed central to anything we wanted to do. Pool was perfect and we ended up skipping other activities so we could simply stay by the pool. Scott was very welcoming and informative and truly cared about our needs. We plan on a return soon as we can!

Wonderful vacation

The house was spotless and had everything we needed. The backyard and pool were spectacular. Very private yard and the gas fire table were a plus! Scott was a very gracious and accomodating host. We would definately recommend this property.

Very nice, clean, quiet, vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned after spending 2 weeks at Villa de Solara. During that time our son and his wife joined us for one week. The home can comfortably accommodate 2 couples and we all had a great time.

The home is very clean, modern and is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable.

We loved the completely private and beautiful pool and spa and we enjoyed the quiet neighborhood.

Scott was very welcoming and great to work with.

We came to the house on business, and it was just amazing. Clean, quiet, and the backyard is really well done - and quite big!

Thanks for the great, comfortable stay

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.
