About the property

5 bedroom, 3.5 bath with Mountain Views close to Tennis Stadium

JANUARY 2017 SPECIAL . $550 A NIGHT . 2 NIGHT MINIMUM. A custom 5 bedroom home situated on a very private, lushly landscaped one acre parcel in Palm Desert. The home is located in a private enclave of custom homes within walking distance of the Indian Wells Tennis Stadium. The spacious kitchen area has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. There is a large central island and wine cooler. The backyard features a large saltwater pool and 8 person elevated spa. There is also a poolside patio area that has a fire pit. Its a great spot to drink your morning coffee, or have a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the mountains while listening to the waterfall cascading from the spa into the pool. Great location for the BNP Paribas, Coachella, and Stagecoach. Invite two or three other couples or families to join you for the week and relax in your quiet sanctuary after the concert or tennis match. No need to deal with a gated community and all the different HOA's. Private home on a private street . Enjoy Bocce Ball or a game of croquet or "corn hole" on the expansive rear lawn.

Why Patrick Meaney chose California Desert

We purchased this house to entertain friends and family and to be able to enjoy the spacious backyard for many events, and birthday parties. We feel like we are on vacation!

What makes this house unique

This property is one of the few one acre parcels of land in the Palm Desert area. It has a great south facing views of mountains, and is very private. This property is centrally located for dining and shopping in Palm Desert and La Quinta. Our La Quinta favorite's are Cliff House, Solano's Bistro and Stuft Pizza in Old Town, and Sullivan's on El Paseo in Palm Desert. We also like Okura for Sushi in La Quinta, just a short 5 minute drive away.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our son's baseball tournament (3 families--12 people). It was nicely decorated, and very clean. The outside pool area was so nice! Lots of space & lots of different areas to hang out (pool, hot tub, mini pool table, dining area, firepit & lots of grassy area). We had a little issue w the pool heater, but the associate was very fast to respond & helped take care of it. He did not seem put out at all--very friendly. The inside of the house had more than enough space--the rooms are not all 'on top of one another' so everyone had good privacy. The living areas were also separated enough from the bedrooms so if some were sleeping others could still be out having a good time w/o bothering others. We stayed in for all meals & the kitchen & BBQ worked out well. We did search for more kitchen accessories but we got creative and made due (not a lot of cooking knives, no griddle, no large skillet). It was very close to grocery stores, Starbucks, fast food & other restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

Stunning home; great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 stayed at this wonderful home over this past Thanksgiving weekend. The home was incredibly lovely and well maintained. It was spacious inside and out which allowed everyone to either join in the conversation, read, swim or do whatever they wanted. We were specifically enamored by the kitchen. It was the perfect size to allow 4-5 cooks plus kids to participate in preparing Thanksgiving dinner as well as all the other subsequent breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

Brendan was exceptional in attending to our every need, coming out several times to adjust pool and jacuzzi temps. These were easily resolved . We sincerely appreciate all his attention.

We would definitely return to this wonderful home.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the house for a birthday celebration with family and friends. There was more than enough room for 6 adults and 5 children.

The house is beautifully furnished and well maintained. The pool and surrounding yards are perfect for children to swim and play the many provided games.

Great kitchen for big meals as well as a nice outdoor grill.

Indoor and outdoor dining areas made it easy to seat everyone comfortably.

Short drive to groceries, etc.

Owner is very responsive and made the rental process easy.

Special thanks to Brendan for showing us how to operate all of the amenities, and responding immediately to the few questions we had.

We would recommend the property to anyone looking for a large place to relax and enjoy the sun.

The ideal home for the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Patrick and Brendan were phenomenal in lending their home to me and my friends. We had an incredible vacation and spent 5 days in pure bliss - I would recommend renting this home to anyone who enjoys having a good time by the sun! We had a pool, hot tub, fire pit, BBQ & great indoor kitchen for cooking, croquet games outside (and board games inside), a living room to lounge in, and fantastic beds to rest in at the end of each day.

You really cannot match this house. I look forward to renting it again!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed here and the house, pool, and jacuzzi were great! We had a great spring break with our kids and friends! Albertsons is close by and Costco is about an 8 minute drive. House was clean and lots of room for everyone. Only 2 bedrooms have attached bathrooms FYI...the other 3 bedrooms have hall baths. The house is on a dead end street which is nice and private. Brendan and Patrick were professional and easy to work with! Great memories were made here!

Everything about this house was amazing. Amazing location to the Indian Wells tennis gardens. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat. It was clean and beautiful. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The owner was accommodating and friendly. We stayed with 11 people in the house and there was tons of room for all of us. We all loved the house.
