Mid-Century Modern Citrus Estate: 3 blocks to El Paseo Drive! 4 King bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 fireplaces, fully-stocked kitchen, heated salt-water pool & spa, Firepit, BBQ, pool table, ping-pong, foosball, California misters, 8 chaise lounges, Sonos Music System, 5 HDTVs and incredible Mountain Views!
Welcome to our Citrus Estate - it is a 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom home 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 Drive, 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 South Palm Desert Vacation Rentals are similar in that they are all in south Palm Desert (the only place to be), on large south-facing lots (4 of 5 have over 1/2 acre lots!) with luxury amenities, a heated salt-water pool & spa, fire-pit, barbecue, heated outdoor dining, music everywhere, fireplaces, luxury linens, fully-stocked kitchens, pool table, ping-pong & foosball.
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. 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!) or under the shaded lanai that spans over 60-feet across the back of the house.
The Citrus Estate is ideal for your summer vacation as well with California Misters spanning across the lanai; they cool the air by 20 degrees!
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, acrylic-ware 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 two cooking grills and a separate burner. It heats to 700 degrees - just imagine the steaks you'll make!
In the living/dining room, you will find Eero Saarinen and Florence Knoll furnishings as well as George Nelson décor 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.

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.

Check-in and Check-out
Our Check-in time is 5pm and our Check-out time is 11am.

Palm Desert Vacation
We are a professional couple (Doctor and Lawyer) from Vancouver in our early 50s. We have two young adult children and we love to travel, ski, golf, hike and swim in the sun! We have carefully selected 6 vacation properties to purchase over the past 6 years in Palm Desert, California and Whistler, BC, Canada to best suit the needs of families. We love bringing friends and family to our vacation properties and we know that you will too. After all, we all tend to like the same things in a perfect vacation property for our families: space, open-concept, HDTVs, comfortable sofas, large dining tables, privacy, lots of bathrooms, hot tubs, music, luxury linens, professional kitchens and above-all, incredible views! If you have all this, your family vacation will be incredible!
Palm Desert is the best city in the whole desert as it's luxurious, tasteful and centrally-located. We purchased 5 homes in south Palm Desert very close to El Paseo, the Rodeo Drive of the desert. Location is key - you can walk to excellent shopping and great restaurants from any of our Palm Desert homes.
In Whistler, in the winter of 2017, we purchased a luxury 5-bedroom large chalet on the 1st fairway of the Nicklaus North Golf Course in the Green Lake Estates. It's just a 3-minute drive into Whistler Village, and just a 30-minute walk along the Valley Trail. It has the most incredible unobstructed views of Blackcomb Mountain that we've ever seen! Our Northwood Chalet Whistler has floor to ceiling windows in the living room and dining room to ensure that you will not miss the amazing views of Blackcomb Mountain!
All of our Vacation Properties share the common theme of fabulous locations, great amenities, fully-stocked kitchens, tasteful decor, music (key!!!), family-friendly, and great views. We have high standards and know that you do too! As such, we try to maintain all of our vacation properties to the high standards we expect. We take great pride in knowing that our guests have enjoyed our home. We have sourced and hired top-notch property managers to ensure that your stay is seamless.

Every year, we have several families return to our homes for another vacation, which is the greatest compliment we can receive. We have over 230 5-star reviews of our Holiday Home Rentals. Whether you are coming to Whistler or to Palm Desert, our high standards are the same! If you reserve one of our vacation properties, you will not be disappointed. We look forward to having you!
