About the property

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. Desert Knoll is NOT a Party house. 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 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. This is Not a Party house and if that is the main focus of your trip, this is Not the right house. City of Palm Springs ID #2392

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 under any circumstances. We strictly enforce Palm Springs City ordinances on occupancy and outside noise. No drone flying, no fireworks, please, no parties or events, or pets without prior authorization.

Contemporary villa with all home comforts

  • 5 of 5

A very well kept villa. Good quality furnishings, kitchen equipment, barbecue etc. Small but adequate pool. A great place to stay that we felt comfortable in from day one.

Even better than you'd think

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous home and property - very highly recommended. The owner was great to work with and communication was fantastic. The pictures of the listing don't even do it justice, especially because even though neighbors are close, it is very private, quiet and serene. If you are looking for a vacation to just chill out and really soak in the relaxed atmosphere of Palm Springs, this is the place to be. Thanks for everything - it was most memorable!

Perfect Location, Perfect Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This rental made our annual reunion of 6 adults a memorable one indeed! The house was exactly as the photos and description online. The information notebook regarding all the amenities was easy to follow, there was a lovely pool for relaxing, and a fully equipped kitchen for family cooking. The gathering table for dining was comfortable, and we enjoyed cooking on the outdoor grill too. The owner phoned in to be sure we didn't have any questions. We highly recommend the Desert Knoll!

Stunning Villa in a beautiful location....

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Desert Knoll and with two teenage sons this is a perfect location that meets all of our needs. The villa has everything one could want, stylish, modern and extremely clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the garden and pool area with hot tub which proved the perfect spot for firework viewing over the valley on 4th July.

We cannot recommend this property enough and we are all looking forward to our fourth visit next year.

A special thank you to Robert again for his attentiveness and suggestions.
