Beautiful Luxury Villa For 6 People Perched Above Palm Springs

Desert Knoll is a beautiful luxury home on 1/3 of an acre on a great location in the hills above Palm Springs. Desert Knoll isolates its 6 guests from neighbors, street and wind with privacy hedges and trees on three sides, yet it provides sweeping 270* vistas of the desert, mountains and a great southern exposure. From the moment you enter the front gate you'll enjoy the impressive desert modern architecture, high end finishes, stylish modern furnishings, and gorgeous artwork in this steel, glass and concrete masterpiece. Every guest is comments the property is even better in real life than in the pictures you are seeing.

Desert Knoll is conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, on a quiet street overlooking the Coachella Valley with the San Jacinto Mountains right behind it.

Desert Knoll is designed with an eye to the classic contemporary architecture that defines the Palm Springs lifestyle; open & exciting. The flat roof, 14' ceilings, clean lines and wide expanses of glass provide panoramic views, abundant natural light, and erase the line between indoors & out for seamless living & entertaining. At first look, the house blends in perfectly with the desert terrain; huge boulders accented with natural landscaping indigenous to the area. As you approach the tall glass entry, you'll immediately understand the scale & volume of the house. The oversized entry hall with towering ceilings is formal, yet inviting. Desert Knoll was built for entertaining in style. The giant sliding walls of glass in the living room disappear into the wall to make a large open-air pavilion facing the new black bottom rock pool and view, providing plenty of lounge seating for everyone, either in front of the indoor living room wood fireplace or around the outdoor fire pit.

The large modern chef's kitchen features high end appliances from A to Z and has a convenient pass-through breakfast bar to the living/dining room. It also provides added privacy for dinner party preparations with a butler's pantry directly behind the kitchen, where you'll find an extra ice machine, wine refrigerator and laundry facilities. For extra flexibility, there are additional large-capacity laundry facilities in the garage. In addition to the generously sized dining table for eight in the main living area, there is an additional outdoor dining table for eight and a gas barbecue grill just outside the kitchen.

Once inside, the walls and gates that secure the property and protect its privacy, the setting is a verdant green tropical landscape dotted with gorgeous outdoor furniture that has a luxurious cooling effect to the eye & the senses.

The Master suite offers a King size bed, walk-in closet and generous private bathroom with jetted soaking tub and walk-in rain shower, as well as a private sitting patio outside the bathroom and second patio facing the pool. The second Master bedroom features a King size bed that can be separated into Twin beds when needed, a private bathroom with walk-in shower, and a private patio off the bathroom. The third bedroom has a King size bed, a built-in desk space and direct access to the pool. In the hallway just outside this bedroom is a full guest bathroom with walk-in shower. All three bedrooms feature brand new comfortable beds and quality linens, so everyone gets a 'good bedroom' in this luxury home.

One of the best features of Desert Knoll is the private pool deck out back. The sparkling blue swimming pool, bubbling spa and shaded lounge area with water misters and a gas fire pit are great places to hang out with a cocktail and enjoy the view to such well-known neighborhoods as Little Tuscany, Chino Canyon, Old Las Palmas and Vista Las Palmas in the foreground, all the way to South Palm Springs in the distance. In New Years, sit back and enjoy the fireworks with a cocktail in your hand.

The house is protected by a 24 hour alarm system and it has high capacity WiFi for the house and grounds. Each room is equipped with a large flat screen HDTV, DVD players and Bluetooth docking radio clocks. There is Netflix, Amazon, HBO and more available in every room and living room. There is a 2 zone Bluetooth high end stereo system that covers the whole house, plus a Bluetooth sound bar in the living room next to the 55' HDTV with DVD. There is also a printer, scanner, fax for your basic office needs and a small 10 bottle wine refrigerator for your better vintages.

The house has a large book selection of diverse topics, various water toys and floats, multiple toys for 1 year olds to 5 or so, a golf rack for your clubs and shoes,

Desert Knoll strives to be as green as possible. It has a 60 panel solar system, LED lighting, desert landscaping were possible, smart appliances and smart home features. It also boasts a large back up gas powered generator for the more than occasional PS power outage.

The home is stocked with high quality linens and towels. The baths and the kitchen are stocked with soaps, shampoos and paper supplies to help start your stay.

Desert Knoll is a 100% smoke free property inside and out. Any smoking must be done outside the front gate. This is not a party house. We strictly enforce Palm Springs City ordinances on occupancy and outside noise. No drone flying please, no parties or events, or pets without prior authorization.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Desert Knoll is such a beautiful house situated in a tranquil area with wonderful views of the valley (particularly from the hot tub!) The house is furnished stylishly with high end appliances and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, and more!



We would highly recommend this house for a weekend, week, month or even a six month rental. You could never get bored! A special thank you to Robert the owner who contacted us on several occasions to ensure everything was in order and to guide us to the best restaurants, patisseries and clubs in the town. Paradise in Palm Springs!.....

Dream set up overlooking Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Desert a Knoll over the holidays and had a wonderful visit. The house was perfectly outfitted for a family of six to spend time together and relax in a tranquil setting. The backyard alone was worth the stay!

Beautiful location. Beautiful home. Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully furnished, clean and relaxing. We had two architects with us and they were impressed with the designs and decor. The pool and jacuzzi right out of the door were fabulous and all instructions on working the household items made it easy to get right into the living.

We love being close to town and it was both close and quiet. We would definitely recommend the home.
