vacation rental description

Please be advised that we do not list any of our rental properties on Craig's List.

This is our 3rd Rental Property in South Palm Desert! It is 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 two South Palm Desert Vacation Rentals are similar in that they are all in south Palm Desert (the only place to be), on 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. Please visit VRBO 378772 for our 5-bedroom Desert Hawaiian Estate and VRBO 450038 for our 6-bedroom Twin Palms Estate. We have over 50 5-Star reviews of our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals!


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!)

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, acrylicware 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 a burner.


In the living/dining room, you will find Eero Saarinen and Florence Knoll furnishings as well as George Nelson d├ęcor 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 $500 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.

traveler reviews for this palm desert house rental

Vacation in Paradise!

Review submitted: May 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 22, 2014

This home is the bomb! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in the tranquility of the most beautiful backyard ever! We vacationed here with our daughter and her family, and our grandson was just thrilled (as were us grandparents) with the pool, pool table, foosball, etc. The home is just beautiful - bright and colorful - with all the amenities you could ever need. The beds were very comfortable, and I really appreciated how the owners display the directions for the TV's., etc. - very easy to follow. The home is very clean, and close to shopping and restaurants. Also, this home is just 2 miles away from the Zoo, which we really enjoyed. I would love to visit this wonderful home again!

"They thought of everything"

Review submitted: May 23, 2014   Date of arrival: May 7, 2014

This place was fabulous! Great location. The owners thought of everything. We were 4 couples that flew in for a long weekend of golf and shopping. We look forward to renting this place again.

Mid-Century 4-Bedroom --great experience!

Review submitted: April 4, 2014   Date of arrival: March 8, 2014

Located in a beautiful half-acre patio garden,only five minutes walk from the famed El Paseo shopping Avenue in Palm Desert and 3 minutes drive from Highway 111 this rancher bursting with colour is a gem.

After a full day of varied activities, to lounge around the Palm-lined pool with it's ever-changing lighting, sipping a cool drink while enjoying the view of the mountains was the perfect holiday for my family aging from 13 to 79.

Every room in this lovely rancher, designed to bring the outside in is beautifully appointed with it's own colour scheme and the most luxurious furnishings--no detail has been overlooked--indoor and outdoor dining, pool, ping pong and fooze ball tables, well equipped home office, tv's everywhere and a the latest sound system.
Hiking, bike riding and picturesque walks are within minutes of your front door.

I highly recommend this picturesque home, not too far from the airport, but very quiet, a few minutes from the big tennis tournament and close to delightful shopping and dining--we can't wait to return.

listing was accurate, owners were helpful in answering questions, property was immaculate, definitely would recommend this property to anyone. The photos accurately reflect the appearance of the property.
