Welcome to our Citrus Estate - it is a 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom home in the best location - within 3 blocks of El Paseo. The Citrus Estate offers Mid-Century Modern Design with every essential and luxury amenity. It is located on a gorgeous south-facing 1/2 acre lot surrounded by a ficus hedge for privacy with 29 Palm Trees and other architectural agave and lady palm plantings. Plus, the Citrus Estate is only 3 short blocks to El Paseo, the best shopping and dining street in the whole desert. When the sun shines in Palm Desert 350 days per year, it is the most reliable vacation spot possible. You'll never want to go home once you've stayed at the Citrus Estate!

Our other three South Palm Desert Vacation Rentals are similar in that they are all in south Palm Desert (the only place to be), on large 1/2 acre, south-facing lots, with luxury amenities, a heated salt-water pool & spa, firepit, barbecue, heated outdoor dining, music everywhere, fireplaces, luxury linens, fully-stocked kitchens, pool table, ping-pong & foosball.


The Citrus Estate is situated on a south-facing 1/2 acre, professionally-landscaped lot within a 3-block walk to El Paseo. It features a large 32x16 foot salt-water heated pool, a brand-new 12-person salt-water spa with 8 forceful jets for your neck, back, calves and feet! We have planted a ficus hedge all along the perimeter of the back yard for maximum privacy, greenery and sophistication.

You will love the ambiance created by the LED colour-changing pool/spa lighting. In the evenings, you can select your favorite color or 'mode' of lighting for the pool/spa. It is so serene to sit in the spa listening to your playlist while watching the pool/spa slowly move from turquoise to blue to green to magenta.

Move from the Spa to the custom modern natural gas firepit with turquoise fireglass. With a cushioned sectional, you can really relax and enjoy the soothing flames and warmth of the fire, while overlooking the color-changing pool lights. With music everywhere in the back-yard, you can always listen to your favorite playlist on the Sonos sound system.

During the day, relax by the pool on one of 8 modern citrus color chaise lounges with a terry-cloth chaise-lounge cover. Or, float in the heated pool on one of 4 pool floats, all while listening to your favorite music and taking in the mountain views. You can also get some shade under one of the 4 commercial-grade umbrellas (orange of course!) or under the shaded lanai that spans over 60-feet across the back of the house.

The Citrus Estate is ideal for your summer vacation as well with California Misters spanning across the lanai; they cool the air by 20 degrees!

The backyard at the Citrus Estate has the most spectacular mountain views imaginable from every vantage point. Particularly at dusk, the silhouettes of the Palm Trees against the mountains is spectacular.


You can dine indoors or outdoors at the Citrus Estate. Indoors, we have an Eero Saarinen Tulip table with 8 tulip chairs. Outdoors, we have an Orange outdoor dining table and chairs for 8 with two commercial grade stainless steel natural gas heaters so that you can dine outside 365 days/year! Of course, you'll be able to dine listening to your favorite dinner music from the Sonos sound system.


In over 2600 square feet of interior living space all expertly decorated in the mid-century modern style. Two wood-burning fireplaces, gorgeous modern furnishings, artwork on every wall, plenty of lighting, beautiful custom shades in every room and Jonathan Adler lighting everywhere!


Our Citrus Estate has 4 large bedrooms, each outfitted with a King-size bed & luxury pillow-top mattress, custom black-out blinds, a large HDTV, alarm clock, ceiling fan, and fine Trina Turk linens. You will have no trouble relaxing with six pillows on each King Size Bed (2 Euro Pillows for resting, and four additional pillows per bed).


The 3 bathrooms are brand new with Kohler fixtures, Carrera marble and glass shower enclosures. We provide bath towels, hand towels, face-cloths and bathmats for every guest. We even have a blow-dryer in every bathroom!


The open-concept kitchen is a chef's delight with Quartz countertops, professional series stainless steel Fridgidaire appliances (including a gas stove and dishwasher), filtered water, ice-maker, wine fridge, coffee-makers, and every cooking tool imaginable - Panini maker, mix-master, toaster, blender, coffee grinder, food processor and microwave. In addition, we have abundant supplies such as plates, glassware, acrylic-ware for outdoors, melamine for outdoors, roast-pans, cookie-sheets, citrus juicer, cheese grater, sharp knives, cutting boards, rolling pin and plenty of pots and pans. All of our kitchens are fully stocked so that you can cook virtually any kind of meal. We also have a large 95,000 BTU natural gas Stainless Steel Broil-King barbecue with two cooking grills and a separate burner. It heats to 700 degrees - just imagine the steaks you'll make!


In the living/dining room, you will find Eero Saarinen and Florence Knoll furnishings as well as George Nelson décor pieces in addition to a mirrored bar fully stocked with bar essentials (ice-bucket, wine cooler, corkscrew, martini-shaker), a wood-burning fireplace and a 60-inch HDTV along with a Sonos sound system that works with your I-phone. There are custom 'retro-square' shades by Delia Shades of New York City in the living room and dining room for shelter from the sun or evening privacy.


We have a tournament-size (8-foot) custom outdoor pool table covered with our signature 'Citrus Color' outdoor felt on a shaded patio with beautiful mountain views, a mid-century modern cement-block wall, and music from the Sonos system.

We also have an outdoor ping-pong table and outdoor foosball table for your enjoyment located in the backyard close to the Citrus Grove and the Sweet Acacia tree. Imagine playing ping-pong while enjoying the fragrant orange blossoms in the early spring! Outdoor lighting ensures that you can play even in the evening.


The Mid-Century Mod Citrus Estate also offers free WiFi and free long-distance anywhere in the US and Canada. We have a printer and some essential office supplies available for your use as well as a small desk in case you need to catch up on a few things at the office during your vacation.


We accept reservations through VRBO on-line or through our offices (see our email address). In order to reserve, we require 50% of the total cost of the reservation along with receipt of a completed and signed rental agreement. We are not able to hold any reservations pending receipt of funds or the contract as our properties book up very rapidly. If you wish to secure the reservation, the quickest way to do so is to book on-line through VRBO and then we will send you a contract through our offices. Please be advised that VRBO processes payments through Europe and as a result, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee. If you pay via credit card through our offices, the payment is processed through Canada and similarly, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee. To avoid these potential transaction fees, we accept cheques, bank drafts, money orders and direct deposits. Please inquire with us via email if you wish to pay via cheque, money order or direct deposit. In order to secure the reservation, while awaiting receipt and clearing of your cheque, money order, bank draft or direct deposit, we will place a 'hold' on the reservation for one week with a $1000 non-refundable deposit on a credit card.


Please be advised that our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals book up rapidly and are most often booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our properties take approximately 5 hours to clean, and to wash, dry iron and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check in time is 5:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. We are rarely able to offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time due to cleaning requirements. Therefore, if you wish to check-in prior to 5pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to do so is to book the property for the prior night (assuming the property is available on that day) and then you can check in at any time after 5pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well (assuming it's available) and then you can check-out at your leisure prior to 11am the following day.


All of our properties are subject to the rules in the Rental Contract as well as the Palm Desert Short Term Rental Rules. Accordingly, no events, disruption of the neighbors or parties of any kind are permitted at any of our Palm Desert Vacation Estates. No extra persons are permitted to stay at the property other than those listed on the Rental Contract. We expect our renters to provide the utmost of respect to the property and to the neighbors.

Rental Permit #45627. Business Licence No. 13-00037581.

About the Owner

We are a professional couple (doctor and lawyer) with teenagers from Vancouver who absolutely love our 3 properties in sunny Palm Desert! We take great pride in our rental properties and have made them comfortable for ourselves as well as for our renters. We work hard, and when we head to the desert, we like to relax. We hope you will enjoy our vacation properties as much as we do!

Mid-Century Modern Citrus Estate: 4-beds, 3-baths, pool, spa, Walk to El Paseo!

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting homes in the desert for 12 years and this has been our favorite by far! Everything we could ask for was there and in working order! The property manager is so personable and helpful we had the peace of mind that if anything else was needed we could call him in a second - there was no need. Very easy to simply relax and enjoy! The home is close to everything. Very private backyard. Comfortable! Clean! Spacious!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our family group ranged in age from 1.5 to 60s and this was a perfect place for all of us to be. From the moment we checked in until we reluctantly had to depart, our stay was superb. This home is perfect for a group, with a large open concept main area that has a wall of windows and a French door looking out to a perfectly manicured back lawn and pool area. Beyond, the views of the mountains are stunning. The palm trees on the property and other plantings make the backyard completely private. As others have mentioned the house is extremely well appointed, with all appliances you could think of, and both porcelain and melamine dinner ware, perfect for meals both inside and out. Each bedroom has lovely linens and a flat screen TV, which was great when some wanted to retire early or was up earlier than others. The outdoor area is really lovely, with four moveable umbrellas to provide shade wherever you'd like, an abundance of lounge chairs, an upholstered seating area by the fire pit, six other chairs placed around the pool with small tables conveniently place between each pair, and pool misters which provide cooling on days when the temps reached the high 90s.

The Living Desert is well worth the short drive, a great take for all ages. We also enjoyed walks in the neighborhood including the very easy walk to El Paseo. Joe, the property manager, is fantastic. The owners and their assistant are wonderful to deal with throughout the rental process. We will return to this lovely home!

Luxurious and relaxing desert escape

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed a 4-night stay at the Juniper house in Palm Desert. We loved this house for many reasons. The home is appointed with all the details including very comfortable king size beds with flat screen TVs in each room and quality appliances to fix a snack, gourmet meal or have an impromptu barbeque. The lovely and quiet pool is surrounded by clever landscaping and set amongst the views of the desert mountains. The pool misters were welcome mid afternoon in the 90° sunshine. Short hikes and many good shops and restaurants are close by, some within walking distance. We can’t wait for another planned stay in the fall. This house is highly recommended.

Perfect house, Perfect hosts, Perfect Manager

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have rented beautiful homes in Hawaii and many other places. This home (and the pool) is now our favorite. The location and VRBO photos convinced us to reserve for 17 days in January. The beauty of the setting, the decor, and the immaculate cleanliness of the home far exceed the already-stunning internet description and photos. Palm trees, citrus trees, and high hedges provide a tranquil and private yard, pool/hot tub, outdoor eating, and "fire pit" area. An abundance of outdoor chaises, chairs, and seating areas invite everyone to the ourdoors. The neighborhood is quiet, but within walking distance to shops and restaurants on El Paseo. The owners/hosts have done a fantastic job of anticipating everything a vacationing family would want. They have created mid-century decor but coupled it with 21st century technology. And, finally, Joe, the property manager, is fantastic. He makes it clear that he is available 24x7 for questions or requests. He was friendly, welcoming, and explained everything clearly. When the power company decided to shut down the entire block for 12 hours, Joe returned to reset the timers for all of the outdoor lighting--without being asked! The owners were a dream to work with throughout the rental process. If I were to purchase a home in Palm Desert, this is the one I would want! We WILL be back!

We have done many VRBO rentals, but none as good as this. Over the top in every aspect. Location, amenities, weather, and a house to die for. Hope to return next year, before I'm too old.

This is a fabulous property and is as described,even better. The Location can't be beat and the owner has thought of everything, from the sonos sound system, the misters, pool ,foosball & ping pong tables to the fully stocked kitchen and toiletries in the washroom. I will certainly stay here again and highly recommend it.

From the Owner

We love our Mid-Century Mod Citrus Estate due to its proximity to El Paseo, its Mid-Century Modern Design, its huge lot (1/2 an acre) and the south-facing backyard. We have preserved the Mid-Century Modern style of our Citrus Estate while providing current amenities that we all require when vacationing!

You simply cannot find a better location in the desert. The Mid-Century Modern Citrus Estate is a 3-block walk (5 minutes) to El Paseo, which is the best and most beautiful shopping/dining street in the desert. It is in a quiet, peaceful residential neighborhood, yet it's so close to Starbucks, Saks, Williams-Sonoma, Woofgang Pucks, Mama Gina's and a whole host of other great restaurants and shopping. Plus, the best golf and tennis in the desert is only 5 minutes away by car. We walk up to the mountains to go hiking all the time as well. The Citrus Estate has breathtaking mountain views from the sunny south-facing backyard as well. Once you've stayed at the Citrus Estate, you'll never stay anywhere else!
