Wonderful Home, Wonderful Owner

We stayed here last year for a family trip. The home is beautiful and the owner is a wonderful man. We stayed with a few family and kids, the amenities were perfect. From the game room to the pool and large grass area we had a variety of activities and things to do. The is modern, but has such a warmth to it. I couldn't recommend this house more. Wish we were staying here again this year for our family trip! The family is just growing so we wont fit ;(

Relaxing Oasis

A beautiful hidden gem in the desert! The owner and property manager are both a pleasure to coordinate with. The property has everything you need. All the comforts of a home/hotel in this dream home. Beautifully landscaped with lush greenery surrounded by fruit trees. Centrally situated near golf courses, shopping and casinos. Lots to do indoors and in the surrounding areas. The BEST vacation home we've stayed in yet!

Amazing Propert

This year was our 14th annual friends gathering at Palm Springs and every year we rent a different vacation home and by far this was the best house we have stayed at. I have so much to say and don’t know where to start from. The house was amazing, nicely decorated and very well maintained. It is close to all convenient stores and restaurants.

The house looks exactly what we saw in the pictures and it has a very interesting layout. Each room/bedroom has its own acces to the back yard which we loved since some of us didn’t have kids and this made it private for us. Andy The owner was awsome and promptly responded to all questions and made sure all our needs were meet. Manager Barbara was great and took the time to give us a tour of the entire house upon arrival. Cant say enough good things about this property.

We read all 48 comments before we made our final decision and I have to say I agree with all the positive comments people wrote.

Andy we thank you for giving us the opportunity to create wonderful memories..

Amazing Sanctuary!

Our group absolutely loved this property, and we hope to return! Given the acreage, square footage and layout, you would never know that 15 people were staying at this house. It was the perfect R&R retreat for our group from Seattle, seeking sunshine and tennis. We prepared a few dinners and had sufficient seating for all. We enjoyed the game room, pool, ping pong, bocce and outdoor fire pit. Both Andy (owner) and Barbara (property manager) were responsive to our questions/needs.

The house itself has a unique layout. Each bedroom also has an exterior entry. The queen bedroom with half bath must be accessed from interior main house via master bedroom or exterior entry. Study the layout if you have several couples sharing the house. The kitchen is large and even has a wine fridge, 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, but lacking nice cooking implements. So if you love to cook, plan to bring your some of your essential tools with you (e.g. good knife).

Amazing Property

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The House was incredible and the area was fantastic. Everyone raved about the pool and landscape. We recommend you rent this home.

Beautiful property! Great location.

We loved how roomie the house is and walking distance to Indian Wells. Some rooms are definitely better then others. Everything seemed to be clean and Andy was very attentive and got back to us right away if we had any questions. This house was great for our large group!

Awesome Palm Springs Super-Mansion

This place is phenomenal. You can literally get lost in here exploring all the things to do. Ownership is amazing as well. Highly recommended.

Perfect for a Golf Trip

We had 12 guys for a 4 day golf trip and in 10 years of coming to the desert for this event, this house is the best we've ever stayed in. You can actually sleep 12 people, each in their own bed and that's hard to find. Everything is easy to use and self-explanatory, you just arrive and settle in. Not like some places where you need a walk thru to tell you haw to use even turn the lights on.

Loved the salt water pool and hot tub, putting green and bocchi ball court. Kitchen is easy to use and we made a number of meals there. Very convenient location. We'll be back next year.

Great setup for large groups. We all loved it.

Never stay in a hotel again!

The Mountain View Retreat exceeded all our expectations. This is the first year our company decided to ditch the hotel scene and rent a home for our entire crew. There were 9 of us, male and female, so that was ground breaking in and of itself. We each had our own space, bathroom, so we didn't feel cramped or invading one's privacy. That was my first requirement of a home, we had to feel comfortable living together for 5 days and 4 nights. The house is incredible. The view, the backyard with all the games (bocce, horseshoes, putting green, ping pong), the pool heated to 85 degrees, the patio furniture and fire pit - all just amazing and very comfortable. We visited La Quinta during a rare rain storm. The first 2 days it rained and it was extremely cold, but with all the blankets we were still able to enjoy the outside areas. Each bedroom was unique with comfortable beds, bathroom had all the amenities, towels were plentiful, art on the walls not the bare walls you find in so many AirBnB's - really like being at your own home, except their art is much better than mine. We hired a chef for 3 of our meals, 1 for just us and then 2 for our clients. We had dinner for 20 one night and desserts and bocce for another night. The game room was where it all came together, pool table, huge TV, wet bar. We spent most of our time there and at the dining room table working during the day and eating at night. We got more accomplished in 5 days than we have in 5 months and the community feel just made it awesome. We all vowed to never stay in a hotel again during an event like the one we attended at the nearby resort. This is our new way of doing business and I highly recommend that to you as well or just stay at this house for a great retreat. Restaurants nearby, shopping across the street. Andy, this was the best AirBnB I've been in over the past 3 years. We all appreciate you and your family offering up your home to all of us. We will be back - in November. Thanks!

Amazing home and great for a group

The Mountain View Retreat home is absolutely stunning! A group of us stayed for a reunion and from the moment everyone walked in the door they were stunned by how well the house was put together and the amount to do there. From pool, to bocce to horseshoes and everything in between, the house is incredibly well taken care of. Andy was great about keeping me informed of everything prior to the trip and couldn't have asked for more, we will definitely be back!

Just Amazing!

The most amazing house! Andy was extremely accommodating and helpful. House perfectly located but feels very secluded. We had a large family group ranging in ages 1- 84 yrs old, and there was something for everyone. Never a bored moment. We'll definitely be back!!

Great property for a big group!

We had a blast at the Mountain View Retreat. If you love fresh herbs and fruit, you will love it here! The entire property is surrounded by fruit trees and herbs! The outdoor area is also great in that there is plenty of shaded space by the pool as well as bocce, a putting green, and a big lawn for games.

We had a group of 20 and enjoyed that everyone could have their own space. I will mention that the house is a bit of a maze- many of the rooms are connected by bathrooms, and sometimes it seems as though you have to walk through a different bedroom in order to get to your own room. However most rooms have direct access to the outside, so we just went outside to get back to the livingroom, dining room, etc. The floor map that the owner has is very helpful! Also one of the master suites is interesting in that it has 2 king beds in it- so best for a family or 2 couples that are very comfortable with each other!

All in all, of the 5 big home that I've rented in Palm Springs, this was by far the nicest- beautifully decor, nice appliances, well kept grounds and beautiful views of the mountains. Plus its across the street from a big shopping complex with a Trader Joes in it, so we could pick up last minute groceries whenever we needed to.

Andy was very communicative with any questions that came up while we were there. Thanks for having us, Andy!

Amazing House!

This was our 11th year for our Annual Girls Weekend and this house was perfect!

Super clean, high-end sheets and towels and plenty of pool towels! We really enjoyed all of the fun areas including the putting green, lawn golf and of course the pool! It was too hot during our weekend to play Bocce Ball but next time!

Thanks again Andy for making our weekend the best yet!

Fantastic Backyard!

I recently stayed at this property with 5 other couples. We had a fantastic weekend. Andy was incredible accommodating from start to finish. We especially enjoyed the privacy of the large backyard, where we could swim, play horseshoes and enjoy the covered patio together. Would definitely stay there again in the future. Thanks so much!!

Absolute Perfection

A large group of us recently enjoyed a 5 night stay here and couldn't have asked for a better home to reconnect in. The pictures simply don't do it justice. The house itself offers stunning decor, plenty of space so that you never feel like you are on top of one another, games and activities of all sorts, incredibly comfy beds, a beautiful pool and spa, and a yard that goes on forever (and did I mention the fruit trees?). Within walking distance (or a 5 minute drive) you have everything you need - groceries, Target, Costco, and even In-n-Out. Andy was so accommodating and made our every wish come true. Thanks so much for a week we won't soon forget. Can't wait to return next year!

Fantastic Property and Fantastic Host

I rented the property for a large group of 15 friends and couples and we couldn't have been happier. The house looks unassuming from the street, but when you get inside the gates, you have a fantastic oasis in the desert with beautiful pool, open spaces and tons of room for activities. The design of the property is sleek and modern, and doesn't feel cheesy or run-down like so many other "luxury" properties. Andy was a very responsive and flexible host, and made planning all the easer. I would definitely stay here again.

Amazing retreat! Beautiful and private.

This contemporary retreat near Palm Springs was perfect for our weekend event. It is so well designed that everyone enjoyed privacy and all the obvious amenities—beautiful pool, excellent kitchen and entertainment areas. Its location near attractions like Joshua Tree National Park, golf courses, restaurants and even an aerial tram made it a great getaway for a variety of ages. We would certainly visit again!

Perfect Getaway Location

This is the second year in a row that we have rented this property. The home and grounds are immaculate. Every detail in the home is cared for, and you couldn't ask for a better house and property for multiple families to gather and enjoy themselves. The owner is very responsive and clearly cares for the property and the people staying there. Everything you see on the website is accurately reflective of the high quality of living that this home offers. We will certainly be returning next year, as this house has become part of our tradition.

House is amazing, very well suited for multi-family and kids of all ages!

Zero complaints, tons of room, things to do right on the property and everything was clean and worked well. Will definately be back!
