    What guests are saying:

    “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house. We hiked in the morning, used the bike trails, enjoyed the pool and spa, and then made dinner and played games on the great table in the kitchen. We loved the open space, the beds were comfy, and they supply everything you need. Emily and Leigh Ann include wonderful information and were always quick to respond to any question. It was a great vacation and we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.”

    *NEW* Contemporary Pool Home with Incredible Views

    The views from the property are amazing, the whole valley is below and located in the hills above El Paseo, which is only a 5 minutes drive where you can find the best restaurants and shopping in the desert. Lots of outdoor activities within minutes including; great hiking, biking, tennis, golf, swimming, and much more.

    What guests are saying:

    “So you’ve heard of a “million dollar view” before, right? Yeah well, this is it! The views from east facing porch of this property are breathtaking and never got old, not for even one second! I found myself completely relaxed while laying in the plush loungers. All my stress and worries simply melted away while taking in the vast view of desert nature and expansive mountain scapes. Whether in the scorching Palm Desert heat of the day, or underneath the sky full of stars at night, the view never disappoints. Moving on....even though I could keep going about the view!! The pool is also very nice. Good size and it was very clean. The pool area has 4 loungers, which were pretty comfortable also. There’s also a nice size spa, very deep. The overall ‘pool’ area is a little smaller than I expected, but it’s still a good size, not cramped. The house also did not disappoint. It has been updated beautifully and felt very clean. The living/ kitchen area is huge, and a great place to congregate and hang out. The Master bedroom is also very large and gives that true master feel. It also boasts the amazing view. Also, the owner Andrew, was terrific. He was very kind, took the time to greet us at the house and walk us through. During my stay, I had a few questions and Andrew answered them all almost immediately and was extremely accommodating the entire time. Overall, this house is amazing and I don’t think it’s possible to not absolutely love the time you spend here. I’m leaving feeling entirely refreshed and completely replenished, in large thanks to the wonderful pool area and breathtaking view this home offers.”
