About the property

One of the most commanding views in the entire Coachella Valley await occupants of this mountaintop Estate just 12 miles north of downtown Palm Springs. Infinity pool and spa allows for close up 'star gazing' and the beautiful desertscaped grounds offer 300 degree vistas. Elegantly decorated bedrooms sleep 12 and soaring ceilings in the second story reinforce that this home defines the builder term, 'custom home.' Top drawer amenities await guests who want to get away from the high stress of LA and beyond. Services of a top property manager/concierge are available with each rental.

Great 365 Views in Spacious and Calming House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here this weekend and had a great time! The views are wonderful. The spacious rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were amazing. We didn't even leave the house! This house was perfect for getting together, cooking some meals and relaxing. We especially loved eating out on the back deck at the long table. The kitchen was properly stocked though I do recommend bringing tupperware or aluminum foil if you plan on having leftovers! I would 100% stay here again if I ever needed to house that many people.

Thanks so much for a great stay!

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion, and it was everything we were looking for. The home was nicely appointed and very quiet and private, and we enjoyed the amazing views, especially at night while sitting in the spa. Everything worked well, and the kitchen was well stocked. Very nice, and we'd definitely rent again if in the area - highly recommended. Tim, the property manager, was very helpful with the orientation. The location was close to Joshua Tree and Pioneertown, which we visited on alternate days.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and I spent a long weekend at the house. Great location -- way above the palm springs valley. Amazing view. The heated pool and spa is a wonderful end of the day place to relax and view the city. Plenty of space for all of us. The property backs up to open land that stretches up into the hills. We went for a great run one morning. We were also close to Joshua Tree National Park and went for a lovely hike another day. Given the great location, we felt no need to go out and cooked virtually all our meals. They had a great collection of spices and condiments you could use and contribute to. One possible improvement would be to update the kitchen and add some new cookware. One final note -- the local property manager, Tim, is a great resource. He is responsive and very helpful.

Amazing Weekend at an Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our weekend was wonderful! Tim, the property manager, was a pleasure to work with. He even brought is doughnuts and the Sunday paper on the day we were checking out.

The property itself is wonderfully decorated and maintained. I'm not sure if that's the owner, or the property managers, or a combination of both, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The pool alone is worth a visit, not to mention the fabulous view you have of the entire valley.

Its all about the view

  • 4 of 5

The view from this beautifully set house is indeed spectacular at any hour.

The house is roomy but not particularly well appointed, for instance , there's dining room seating for 12, but only a couch for 4 (5 in a squeeze) in the living room.

The MBR bath is huge and well appointed but has no door on it, so sounds travel into the bedroom, and showering is a bit chilly.

Operationally, we had some challenges with the hot tub heating and the fireplaces in the MBR and living room don't work. ( again, the view from the tub and very pretty endless pool make up for a lot)

The house was not stocked with basics like napkins, pot scrubbers, soap and toilet paper , and a dirty bath mat in the master was a big turn off (Management was quickly responsive to all). Windows ( there are lots and the views from all are wonderful) should be cleaned.

A house book with house and area information would be a welcome addition.

All in all a good experience, but for the price, we hope that the owner steps up ( and not just rest on the gorgeous views)
