Property Details

Updated: Oct 20, 2016
Large yard home- tennis court- pool- spa- outdoor BBQ- ping pong- pet welcome

This private estate home was once owned as a vacation house by the Driscoll family. The property was recently remodeled . The interior and exterior were both upgraded with the finest materials and the home is beautifully detailed and decorated with upscale art and custom furniture with a Southwestern flair.

Located in South Palm Desert, the prime location is close to El Paseo world-class shopping and dining; walking distance to golf course, hiking and biking trails in the nearby Santa Rosa Mountains, and has spectacular desert and mountain views. The over 1/2 acre lot sports a saltwater lap pool with waterfall (heated per request during winter) with adjacent Jacuzzi, a fire pit and outdoor grill, a full-size private sunken tennis court with computerized tennis ball machine (our court was resurfaced and maintained by the same company who is responsible for all the courts at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home of the BNP Paribas Open), as well as an outdoor covered ping-pong table, all on beautifully landscaped grounds.

For your pleasure, the home comes fully furnished and equipped with HDTV combined with living room stereo and theater, digital sound system throughout the inside and outside living areas, and large flat screen televisions in each of the 3 bedrooms. It is move-in ready with spacious walk-in closets stocked with fine linen and luxurious towels. The granite top enhanced modern gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas stove, Aventium microwave oven with convection feature, is equipped with cooking ware, quality indoor-outdoor dishes and glasses, and even has oils and spices for those enjoying home cooking. Granite and beautiful tiling finishes enhance the large luxurious bathrooms with walk-in showers that provide instant hot water. Each master bath has double sinks.

Situated within walking distance to the Gene Sarazen designed Shadow Mountain Golf Course, this home is ideal for golfers as well. One of the historic premium courses in the Coachella Valley, Shadow Mountain GC offers affordable rates ranging from $35 to $50, as well as summer after 3 pm rate is only $3 per 9-hole round. Even though this course does not offer the amenities of a private club, it provides for a nice round of golf and great outing.

El Paseo Blvd, the Rodeo Drive of the desert, offers upscale shopping and fine dining within walking distance to the compound. World-class restaurants include Mastro's, Il Corso, Pacifica, Mamma Gina, Sullivan's, and La Spiga to bring you flavors from Italy to France. For more casual dining, you can enjoy CPK, Tommy Bahamas (restaurant and retail), Blue Agave (very good Mexican restaurant) Thai Dishes, Le Basil (Vietnamese and Thai's), and The Daily Grill. Luxury retailers among many include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Escada, St.John, Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue and other unique trendy boutiques.

Within 7 minutes drive you will enjoy shopping at many popular stores such as Nordstrom Racks, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Bed, Bath and Beyond, HomeGoods, Target, The Westfield Mall with Macy's and JC Penny , as well as quality grocery stores such as Wholefoods Market, Trader's Joes , Jensons, Albertson's , and newly opened Haggens!

The Living Desert Zoo (Giraffes, Camels, sleepover tents for stars watchers..), Century Cinema at "The River" also within 10 minutes drive. There also a bikes rental shop down the street.

Very nice area of Palm Desert, Loans' home is so nicely laid out.

  • 5 of 5

We came in for Desert Trip , ended up being 6 people ...we had a wonderful time.

Everything was "right there"....Tennis...Ping Pong....Bar-b-que....pool/spa.....nice kitchen...

We all even watched that ridiculous debate!

(.....And Saturday Night Live!)

Loan was the consummate host!

We all couldn't have been more happy...!

We will definitely come back.

Truly a memorable weekend for all of us.

Thank you Again Loan.

This is our 5th stay at this amazing home, and it is hands down my favorite vacation spot. Nothing is overlooked, from the luxurious and plentiful towels, paper products, kitchen ware galore, tennis rackets, ball machine, court lights, to the pool toys, ping pong gear and so much more!

There are custom features in the home such as ceiling fans, granite counters, subzero fridge, gorgeous draperies, high ceilings, walk in showers and custom closets, beautiful art and decor...a perfect desert getaway! Anything you need is tended to right away, this vacation home is truly perfection.

I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here last weekend. First time using VRBO and we had no regrets. We had such a wonderful time.

We all agreed that the pictures do not do it justice. I've stayed at many of the nice hotels in the area but now I've found the place I'll be coming back to over and over again. You have to see it to believe it. Accommodations are great.

Loan was such a gracious hostess and made us feel welcome from the get-go. She provided a quick but informative walk-thru and let us know she was around if we had any questions/problems. Place was very clean and so comfortable.

Perfect Location - Well Appointed Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent just over a week here and absolutely loved it. The house is very comfortable and it has everything that you could ask for.

We used the tennis court and ball machine daily as well as the pool. It took us a few days to remember that he pool had a waterfall feature that made it all the more inviting.

We were two couples for three days then by ourselves and it was perfect. The third bedroom is smaller (but still nice size) and makes a great office if not needed for sleeping.

The location perhaps 1/2 mile from the Shoppes of El Paseo was perfect, while we walked it once or twice to get a paper it's not really close enough to walk back from dinner - at least in the summer months.Make sure to eat at Castelli's - we ate there twice and it was as good at previous visits - old school Italian.

We did have some issues with the AV system. We consider ourselves fairly tech savvy and managed to have issues getting the sound in the right places. I know that the manager is aware of the issue and is trying to implement a more user friendly system.

The property manager was helpful and made us feel at home and we hope to return - we would highly recommend this property!

The Perfect Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Palm Springs area is always a great getaway for my family. When we decided to go there to celebrate my son's birthday I spent many hours deciding which area in the desert we should stay. We settled on this property and location because of the tennis court and proximity to golf. But we got the added bonus of the proximity to shopping and the Living Desert. The location proved to be perfect. The check-in process is very accommodating. We were met curbside and shown how to use all the wonderful amenities. The kitchen was well equipped. The very large flat screen was impressive. My sons enjoyed sharing their music on the audio system with speakers throughout. Bedrooms and bathrooms clearly met our expectations, but it was the backyard that was most exceptional. The tennis court, paddle tennis, swimming pool and spa are what made our experience perfect. We enjoyed them all and it kept us very busy and very involved with each other. In addition to the great accommodations, we also felt all of the communications were prompt and courteous. We plan to return to this amazing property very soon!
