The house itself is in a very residential neighborhood steps away from some of the Desert's best schools. It is 2 hours’ drive from Los Angeles and 35 minutes from Palm Springs international airport.

Style Notes

Smart luxury. The residence was fully remodeled inside and out in 2016 by one of the Desert's leading interior designers. The furnishing and decor are contemporary, clean, and sophisticated, with beautiful blue, gray, and brown tones throughout. All flooring is porcelain tile, keeping cool during hot days and easy to clean. We love the saltwater swimming pool, the ultra sleek kitchen and the smart home features.

I love to travel, especially internationally and have been throughout most of Europe and Asia. I still need to make it to South America!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Desert Rock Oasis. We only left the compound twice, it was so relaxing we didn't feel the need to venture out much. Scott had thought of everything, all of our needs were anticipated. The home and grounds were immaculate; it felt like being at a private hotel. We look forward to our next stay! Thanks, Scott!

Palm Springs, California

Dinosaurs, design and the desert

Don't tell everyone, but Palm Springs is a truly great vacation spot for families. Sit in your sunny backyard and take a dip in the pool to cool off; play in neighborhood parks or take to the desert, spotting dinosaur attractions beside the road as you go. It's a great area for hiking if your kids are big enough, and water parks are a must-do, at least once during your stay. Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage has a huge green lawn where kids can play - on Sunday mornings they bring big toys out specially for them! Cultural appeal comes courtesy of the Living Desert and the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert, plus myriad design, art and architecture museums that are stroller-friendly and great for older kids too.
