About the property

3000 sqft, private property w/ large pool, 3 bdrms + den w/sofabed, 3+1/2 baths

Our Casa Hermosa is to die for!! Just listed so we have no reviews to date. It is located in a peaceful neighborhood in South Palm Desert at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Centrally located to everything! Just a 20 min walk to El Paseo, and other destinations such as hiking trails, The Living Desert Zoo, McCallum Theatre, PD Aquatic Centre, golf courses, markets, grocery stores, restaurants and endless retail shopping are minutes away by car!

The minute you step into Casa Hermosa you will be on vacation!! The home has an early 1960’s layout that has been completely renovated in 2013 to bring the simplicity of mid-century modern to present day. The house offers over 3000 square feet of comfortable living space stretching out over 140 feet in length. There are 2 King Master Suites located on opposite ends of the house for very comfortable living, whether it be separate families, couples, or grandparents with their extended family vacationing together. There is a Spare/Childrens room next to the King Master Suite #1 that has a bunk bed and trundle pull out which will sleep 3 comfortably. On the other end of the house, there is a Den/Office with a very comfortable queen size sofa bed. Kitchen and Laundry room are equipped with new appliances. The house wraps around the pool and deck so that no matter where you are in the house, you are never more than 10 steps away from a cool refreshing swim. State of the art electronics are installed throughout the house, with LCD TV’s in most rooms, and sound system wired throughout, both inside and out. The Main Living Room boasts a 65” LCD screen with Cable TV, Xbox, Apple TV, DVD, Netflix, Chromecast, and Pandora Radio, all at your fingertips with the push of a button on the universal remote. The home is also equipped with a home automation system that controls the security alarm, set back thermostats, front and back door locks, alarm sensors on every door and window, smoke detector, and light switches throughout. Extended Wi-Fi network covers the entire house and patio with download speeds between 10 - 20 Mbps no matter where you are.

If this isn't enough, we have a backyard oasis that you will not want to leave! The large pool with cascading rock waterfall is the highlight of the property. The expansive covered patio provides a beautiful outdoor living space with plenty of seating areas for everyone to enjoy!

We have outfitted our Casa Hermosa with everything you need to relax and unwind during your vacation! It is our priority to make your stay at our home - relaxed, stress-free and wishing you never have to leave!
