Inside an open great room is the heart of the home. The living room features a vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, TV with cable DVR & DVD. It opens to the dining area and a chef's kitchen. The dining area opens directly out to the pool and outdoor living area. The new custom kitchen is fully stocked and features stainless appliances, walnut cabinets, classic white quartz counters and an island where guests can gather while you cook or just cook up a cocktail.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, en suite bath and direct access to the private back yard. The 2 other bedrooms each have queen size beds and share the hall bath. There is an inside laundry room and a 2 car garage to keep your cars out of the desert sun.

Rockette Ranch is located in Palm Springs’ historic El Mirador neighborhood. Named for one of the first resorts that made Palm Springs a destination for Hollywood and the world. Today it's a quiet neighborhood escape with easy access to shops, restaurants, museums, night life, and all that Palm Springs has to offer.

About Colin

We are local Palm Springs full time residents, we will respect your privacy but we are available to take care of any issues that might come up during your stay.

Colin purchased this house in 2010

Why Colin chose El Mirador

We bought this house for the spectacular unobstructed mountain views. Unfortunately the best view was from the garage so we tore down the garage and replaced it with a new pool and spa. We then opened up the living room and dining room to the new south facing yard and mountain views. We also built a new garage so nothing is missing.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy morning coffee on the pool patio watching Mt San Jacinto change colors as the sun rises, return in the evening with a glass of wine to watch the sunset. As the mountain turns dark the tram station lights up and you can watch the tram climbing to the top.

Everything you expect and more

  • 5 of 5

Our group expected the pictures to be at the best angle in the best lighting, that was not the case. The pictures do not do this place justice. Seeing the tram in the evening was an added bonus to an amazing stay. We had one minor hiccup that was addressed quickly and efficiently. Privacy, location along with appliances were among the best. We’d gladly stay again.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughters and I had a great time at the Rockette Ranch. The house came as advertised. We were no more than 5 minutes away from all the amenities we needed and Palm Canyon Drive. Colin met us when we arrived and went over everything and answered any questions we had. The pool and hot tub were great, easy to get going and the hot tub heated up quickly. It's a bummer about not being able to play music outside by the pool but that's a Palm Springs City ordinance thing - nothing the owner can do anything about.

Overall we had a great time staying here and would recommend it to our family and friends.

Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool and back yard were perfect for 2 couples and a small child. The interior was upscale and very inviting. The kitchen was well stocked along with linens and towels. Colin was very responsive to all our corespondentce. We would definitely spend another weekend here.
