Palm Springs Spanish Oasis Home Mountain Views - Private


Home Description

The City of Palm Springs ID #990

Vista del Monte (View of the Mountain) is a totally private, walled and gated authentic 1940's Spanish hacienda home.

The home has been published and appeared in the book PALM SPRINGS LIVING. It was restored by San Francisco-based designers' Candra Scott and Anderson. The firm specializes in the restoration of landmark hotels and properties throughout the world.

The property has been totally renovated to its original pristine state and has been fully updated to include all modern conveniences while preserving the period aesthetics. The newest addition to the property is a completely remodeled saline pool. This attention to detail is rarely found in a rental property.

The home offers an open living plan with easy access to the expansive backyard with a covered patio, large pool, built-in Jenn-Air BBQ all set within a picturesque backdrop of mountain views, accented by the glowing lights of the PS Aerial Tramway.

The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with a French door leading to the covered patio, pool, and backyard. The large screen 48" Smart TV equipped with Roku, Hulu, free Netflix and Amazon Prime. If you prefer to get back to basics, you can enjoy our book library and a vast array of board games.

The open dining room has views to the front courtyard water fountain, living room fireplace and beyond to the backyard pool.

The fully equipped kitchen is complete with modern appliances as well as all amenities necessary for cooking and entertaining.

The home's floor plan has two separate bedroom wings and is bridged by the living room and dining room.

From the master suite, allow yourself to gaze out to the spectacular mountain and pool views. The pillow-top California king bed, luxury linens, 32" flat-screen TV and full en suite bathroom. To increase your comfort, bathrobes and throws are located in each bedroom closet. The en suite master bathroom includes a glass-enclosed shower and bathtub, where you will enjoy our complimentary Molton Brown bath products.

Let the queen bedroom welcome you with a pillow-top bed, luxury linens, robes and a flat-screen TV. Just outside your patio door, you will be enchanted by the tranquil splashing of the water fountain as it entices you to the cactus garden. Our collection is consistently expanding, and we currently showcase over 80 specimens collected from around the world. You just may be lucky enough to witness to one of nature's rare wonders; a cactus flower from one of our many varieties. There are two French doors that lead to the backyard and private patio, which is just steps away from the pool.

The second bathroom, adjacent to the queen bedroom features a beautifully designed glass enclosed tile shower with complimentary Molton Brown bath products and a luxurious rain-head faucet.

The light and airy twin bedroom features two twin beds and is perfectly suited for both children and adults.

The west-facing backyard and newly remodeled saline (salt) water pool are totally private with beautiful mountain views and a splashing water fountain. Enjoy the spectacular sunsets while sitting under the grapevine lined arbors, grilling on the large Jenn-Air built-in BBQ, floating in the pool or relaxing with a refreshing drink. The citrus orchard containing orange, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and limes provides our guests with fresh seasonal fruit. The covered patio contains a sofa, chairs and a table for intimate outdoor dining. There is an additional umbrella-covered dining table for larger groups. There are numerous cushioned chairs and chaise lounges for relaxing in the sun.

For bocce ball enthusiasts, you can enjoy playing the sport on our regulation-sized court.

Beautiful and relaxing home

My friends and I had such a wonderful time here. We loved the preserved period details of the house, the thoughtful way it was decorated, and all the amenities provided for us (toiletries, towels, robes). The backyard is gorgeous and the pool was clearly well-maintained. Both Brandon and Tom were so helpful and accommodating. This was the perfect weekend getaway!

What a getaway we had at Vista del Monte! This is the perfect oasis for anyone who appreciates an authentic, rustic and romantic escape. The landscaping is so beautiful. The splashing fountain and the grapevine covered arbors create the most relaxing, calming atmosphere. The statue of St. Francis in the garden is amazing. You must check him out at night! The lighting is hypnotic. You will seem to be transported in time. The owner called soon after our arrival to welcome us, make sure everything was in order and to let us know who to contact for questions or assistance. As we found all along the way, there was great attention to detail. We loved having every modern convenience we could think of wrapped up in a 1940's restored Spanish home. The pool, BBQ and Bocce court were immaculately groomed and inviting. Vista del Monte really feels like a resort more than a house. Time simply stood still . We had the most wonderful experience but it was over way too fast. We will be back again and again. J and J Burbank, CA

Sad to leave

We can't believe how lucky we were to find this house for our vacation. From the moment we made the booking, to the return of our security deposit, the experience was relaxing and enjoyable. The house truly is a gem. The owner's agent, Tom, was responsive, but not intrusive. He met us on arrival, walked us through the house, got back to us quickly when we had questions, and was really helpful The house was spotless, comfortable, and had everything we needed, including a tea kettle! We expected to have to deal with bugs in the house, but didn't see even one insect inside during the entire week we were there. But the star of the show is definitely the outdoor space. We spent a lot of time in the pool. We didn't pay for pool heat, and were glad we hadn't. The water was wonderful. The check out process was quick and easy, and unlike other VRBO properties we've stayed in, we weren't required to strip beds or launder towels before we checked out. We will definitely be looking to rebook as soon as we can get away again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to others.
