This lovely one story ranch style home is all about enjoying the outdoors with over 30 palm trees, lounging by the pool with a cold drink in hand, enjoying the aroma of ribs smoking on the Traeger grill sets the mood for the zen effect of relaxation. Or sit at one of the bar stools with a view of 2 mountain ranges (San Jacinto & San Andres) or nap on the sofa in the lounging area of the almost 1k sq foot outdoor living space. In the evening enjoy the brand new outdoor Alfresco BBQ gourmet kitchen with 2 insulated sinks and a refrigerator. The calm effect from the 2 fountains and waterfall create the zen effect of relaxation.

By booking, you are agreeing to the separate rental contract and the # of people you originally booked with. Late check-out (if approved) will only be granted before arrival, not the day of check out. Just installed Sonos system for indoor/outdoor entertainment which can be operated from your phone. 3 TVS: 1 inside with Time Warner Cable, 1 outside TV which has Roku, no cable and another inside TV which is operated by your phone for Netflix, etc.
IMPORTANT: NO pets allowed without prior approval...$350 pet fee, per pet. Early check-in before 4pm or late check-out after 11 am is $50 per hour except during Coachella it's $100 per hour.

Misters and deck jets can only be run no more than 6-7 hours a day and cost $50 per day.

All fees for unauthorized pets, extra people not declared at the time of booking or unauthorized parties will be double the regular fees if caught on camera after your arrival.
No smoking indoors and if outdoors, we prefer you keep off the Sunbrella fabric cushions on the patio furniture because they are brand new (replacement cost $500 each).
If you want to plug in your apple TV or your gaming device, we have a AUX cable labeled for just that! PLEASE DO NOT UNPLUG ANY OF THE CABLES IN OUR SYSTEM EVER, OR WE WILL CHARGE YOU $500 FOR THE PAIN IN THE BUTT IT IS TO HAVE MY IT GUY COME OUT AND FIX WHAT YOU RUINED.
No red/purple popsicles, wine, coffee or Gatorade in the bedrooms because it stains permanently especially when you don't clean it up right away...usually the carpet has to be replaced ($1k min per room) and/or carpet cleaned ($500.00). No candles are allowed, however, I do have battery operated ones for your enjoyment. Please cover the landscape lighting with the black buckets I provide when playing horseshoes...replacement cost (lights $400 each).
I know all this might sound harsh to some people but you would be surprised what people will do, so I like being honest and straight forward. We take very good care of this house and hope that you would as well. Remember, it's somebody's home which is why I explain all of these details! It is expected for you to not leave the house a mess, otherwise you will be charged an additional cleaning fee of $250 but this is all common sense and is explained further in the contract. Also, you can not set Air Conditioning lower than 25 -30 degrees from what is outside, meaning if it's 100, you can't set the temperature to 50 degrees. For those of you who want to ask me to lower my price, please consider that utilities in the desert can run $200 or more a day.
Canceled bookings will NOT receive a refund but VRBO does offer a cancellation policy or you can purchase one from other sites, so it might be worth checking into this for your own protection because of my strict NO cancellation policy.Get the full listing »
