About the property

Zen Pool Villa - Art & Vintage Design by Pool & Jacuzzi - Ironwood Cc

Located next to the pool and jacuzzi, this is a lovely end unit townhome that blends Art, Zen and a little of old Hollywood - 2 Bedroom / 2 Bath. Big pool where you can swim laps :) All on ground floor. No stairs. No one above or below. NOTE: For stays of 28 days or more, the 11% City Tax will be removed from your original VRBO quote.

*** 4 guests Maximum. No additional guests allowed. Strict rules enforced by the Ironwood Country Club. *** No Smoking. No parties. No music. No noise. This is a quiet neighborhood ***

*** Rental Agreement will be emailed to you for signature, scan and return to complete your booking, after you have made your reservation ***

The Ironwood Country Club, where the Zen Pool Villa is located, behind gates, with 24/7 security guards, offers a quiet and secluded, upscale world of its own. An incredible setting against the backdrop of the mountains, with amazing, manicured landscaping, and less than 5 mns up the hill from El Paseo, in a cul-de-sac, at the end of Portola.

I love Vintage Decor from the 30's, 40's and 50's. The Zen Pool Villa (1275 sqft) is decorated with original art and crafts from around the world (Bali, Mexico, France, etc.). The furniture is mostly vintage, except for beds and mattresses that were purchased new two years ago - both bedrooms are Master/large in size and each one has a King size bed. A super 65" flat screen TV in the main bedroom with Netflix/Amazon, etc. Also a big 55" TV in the living room with cable channels, and a third TV (40" flat screen) in the second bedroom. The kitchen and bathrooms still have their retro look: Not updated with "granite counter tops", etc.

The Upscale Ironwood Country Club is Gated with 24 hour security guards at the entrance - only you and your car, as registered guests, will be allowed in (parking in carport for 1 car, and across the street guest parking for additional cars.

No parties are possible (guests would not be allowed to enter at the gate). This neighborhood and the City Palm Desert are strict about quiet - my neighbors live there full time and I want to make sure they are not disturbed :) Thank you for your understanding.

*** City of Palm Desert tax of 11% will be added if your booking is less than 28 days ***

*** PERMIT# 44945 ***

About Michelle

I love Palm Desert. Nature, Flowers and native plants & trees...The majesty of surrounding mountains... All of that beauty, along with Shops/ Boutiques, Art Galleries, Museums, Theater, Restaurants, and El Paseo is wonderful.

Also, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Jensen's for grocery shopping as well as department stores and malls are just a few minutes down the hill from where we are.

Ironwood is a very clean, manicured and safe environment where one feels wonderful looking at incredible mountains around us, and amazing landscaping throughout our community. Walking and wandering on the quiet streets of Ironwood day or night, at El Paseo, or local hikes in wilderness is a lot of fun. Very close to the Living Desert, Museums and art galleries.

Michelle purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Michelle chose Palm Desert

The Zen Pool Villa is a one story, end unit attached Garden Villa. It is located just a few steps from the jacuzzi and pool, and therefore very convenient. Unless on busy Holidays and weekends, the pool and spa are not used very much, and feel like they are there just for you :)

The covered patio is deep and long and allows relaxing in the fresh air, protected from the sun and the elements. Daybed for two people, as well as an outdoor table and chairs for 4.

What makes this townhome unique

The Ironwood Country Club offers unparalleled beauty - flowers, plants, trees. Very well maintained grounds, and wide streets meandering through the neighborhood. It is very clean, and serene, and safe. Beautiful walks, and a lovely Meditation Garden. Private also, due to being behind the gates at Ironwood (24 hr guards), a few minutes to El Paseo, and yet away from the noise of shops, restaurants and away from traffic.

Set against the mountains, it feels like being in nature, and yet civilized and comfortable.

Also, the living Desert is practically "next door."

Owner's Response: Dear Cary and Sandra, thank you so much for taking the time to write. I very much appreciate it. I love sleeping, and sleeping well is especially important when we travel I think, so I selected two very comfortable king size beds, with great, quality mattresses. So glad you enjoyed them, and the furnishings too (California vintage, as well as artifacts from around the world, mixed with original artwork). It would be lovely if you wished to visit again next year ! Many well wishes (vrbo shared your review with me today). Thank you again, Michelle

Wonderful, comfortable and quiet home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxed and calm stay at this wonderful home. The rooms are very separated from each other and the beds are extremely comfortable. The swimming pool and the hot tub were rarely used by the quiet and respectful neighbors and soooo perfect! Michelle was constantly helpful. We plan to stay here on our next stay since this home exceeded our expectations!

Clean, private, and professional!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in immaculate condition with a beautiful mid century modern design. The pool was conveniently located just outside the living room and we only ever saw two people using it. The place was perfect for our 5 month old babies first pool experience. Michelle was easy to communicate with and we had no issues with the condo, or getting into the Ironwood complex. All the supplies needed for cooking were available, the fridge and stove were in perfect working condition. The A/C unit worked great, and yes, the wifi was strong. The condo has two amazing big screen LCD TV's which we never used, however, we did want to watch a movie because the TV's were so impressive. Great information was available in the guest book and everything was professionally done. We would definitely come back again.

Good Condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was large, rooms were clean, and it was a great spot right by the pool. We ran out of toilet paper and had to go buy our own. We were also a little short on towels - there were basically no extras so we had to be careful about how we used them.

Comfortable, Cozy, Convenient with European Feel

  • 5 of 5

The sofas in the living room are comfortable. The beds are very large and comfortable. The two person daybed on the nice covered patio overlooking the pool and spa is also comfortable. Great how the two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the condo, providing privacy. The kitchen is well equipped and nicely functional. The bathrooms very functional. The flat screen TV in the master bedroom is super big and great and you can use your netflix or amazon or HBO or HULU account. Cozy place. Vintage style furniture and nice original artwork give it some European Flair. Beautiful walks in Ironwood. Have never seen such perfect landscaping anywhere.
