Description

Perched on a hillside with amazing Palm Desert views -- and just two miles from the El Paseo shopping district -- this private, five-acre, gated estate awaits for quiet, romantic getaways.

Enjoy unencumbered 180-degree, panoramic, cliffside views of the entire Coachella Valley and mountain ranges from every room inside as well as the sparkling pool and spa.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors offer seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining space to the 2,200-square-foot floor plan. Original architecture design offers classic light and airy desert living experience.

Highlights include two sumptuous suites plus a gourmet kitchen. Gather for meals on the covered veranda or take the path through an enchanted yard to a hidden dining patio.

Hiking paths are accessible right out the front gate.

LIVING AREA

The sunlit living room features plush furnishings, artisanal decor, an electric fireplace, and a 60in TV.

KITCHEN & DINING

Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops shine in the gourmet kitchen. Two can keep the cook company at the kitchen bar, while an elegant dining room table seats six.

BED & BATH

Two suites each have a king bed, smart TV, yard access, and a spa-like en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

OUTDOOR AREA & AMENITIES

Towering hedges and a lush lawn create the atmosphere of a secret garden. Take in the spectacular views while relaxing on the covered veranda or follow the stone path to a secluded patio with a gas grill and a dining table for four. Pick a lime from the tree in the yard to use for drinks or salsa.

Lovely landscaping and comfy loungers encircle the sprawling pool deck. Admire immaculate valley vistas while you unwind in the heated pool and spa.

EXTRA PERKS & MORE DETAILS

Complimentary Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer, and parking for two cars in the driveway and one in the garage are provided.

Please note, this home is located on a cliff and may not be suitable for small children.

**This is a pet-free property due to the homeowner's extreme allergies. Any animals brought into or around the perimeters of the home will result in immediate eviction, a minimum pet cleaning fee of $500, and loss of any reservation payment and fees.

Palm Desert permit # STR2019-0127

Local regulations require that the property manager meet you within the first 24 hours of your arrival to review the applicable local ordinances and rules pertaining to your stay.

Palm Desert city ordinance prohibits loud music and unruly parties in residential neighborhoods, and strict occupancy rules are enforced. Over-occupancy and noise violations will result in fines and eviction without a refund.

LOCATION

With downtown Palm Desert and the El Paseo shopping district accessible in 3 miles, this hidden haven feels worlds away from your day-to-day. Palms Springs is within a 30-minute drive, and Joshua Tree National Park is an easy day trip (an hour drive).

Perfect private getaway with all the amenities! Nice kitchen with everything we needed. We stopped at the grocery store before checking in and didn't leave until we had to check out. The pool was perfect for the two of us for morning, noon and night swims. Second visit here for us and plan on booking again the next chance we can.

1) The spa never heated up as we were told it should.

2) Gardeners were there for about two hours with mechanical devices screaming and managed to cover everything outside with dirt, dust and plant debris. We had to endure their presence and noise, then clean up after them. We basically lost an afternoon to them.

3) We found cockroaches in the bathroom.

4) We found mouse **** all over the cloth napkins and place mats.

We don`t like having to spend our vacation calling service people to do things that should have been done before we arrived.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This home was beautifully decorated and immacculate. Kitchen was well-equipped and there were plenty of towels, including towels for hot tub. Close to El Paseo but up a steep one-way road (shared by several homes) that some people may find intimiating.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

From the moment we arrived, we felt we were in a uniquely special place. This villa is visually stunning with tremendous views high above the city. The home has two separate master bedrooms with bathrooms. The pool and jacuzzi are inviting, the kitchen is fully stocked and the home is tastefully decorated. We look forward to returning next year.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We absolutely loved our stay. The location was so private. Coming to the desert in August/Sept., there was little traffic. It was easy to get restaurant reservations. The first time driving up to the cliff house was a little scary, one lane curvy road with no guardrails. But my husband had no trouble up or down. The views were fantastic, the house extremely clean, with every kitchen utensil needed for cooking in. The wi-fi worked perfectly, so that we could make it a working vacation. Would love to come back.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We have stayed in many vacation homes and villas, but none as spectacular as this property. The secluded location and views were outstanding, and the property was clean, well appointed, and impeccably maintained. The 2200 sq. ft. interior was spacious and had everything we needed in the kitchen for a luxurious four night stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the private pool and the lovely patio area. The bed was super comfortable and the linens were very good quality. The closets and cabinetry were beautiful. This is obviously a much loved property, and we are glad the owners have decided to rent it when they are not in the area. We would definitely love to stay here again if we are ever in the Palm Desert area.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This home is so perfect for 4 ladies! Each bedroom has it`s own private bathroom, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and the pool/spa with that view are unbeatable!

We did have a little difficulty with Uber, which they did make us aware of beforehand, but the drivers contacted me and we were able to give them the correct directions for pick up!

Highly recommend this beautiful home!This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The location puts the cliff house tops for our next return trip! Great style and care the owner has taken to make this getaway a must visit. It was perfect for the two of us with a stunning view of El Paso day and night. Close to town yet tucked away on the hill side.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This was such an amazing home to stay in for a small family of 4. My husband and I took our two boys for 3 nights for a little change in quarantine scenery. It was impeccably clean and has 2 large master bedrooms. Great size pool that overlooks a cliff of the mountains. Not too high up, but high enough to be secluded.This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had an amazing time in the Cliff House. Everything was top notch and sparkly clean. All the amenities one would need for a quick weekend getaway or an extended stay. The pool was perfect to cool off after wandering around the Living Desert Garden in 117 degrees heat.
Can`t wait to come back soon!This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
