This is the definition of Luxury!

Mountain View Retreat was built with every modern amenity designed to enrich your enjoyment of life. Behind a coded gate, and with a coded security entrance, your privacy and protection is a priority. Just minutes away are world-class golf courses with spa facilities that rival any others.

Perfect for a Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 guys for a 4 day golf trip and in 10 years of coming to the desert for this event, this house is the best we've ever stayed in. You can actually sleep 12 people, each in their own bed and that's hard to find. Everything is easy to use and self-explanatory, you just arrive and settle in. Not like some places where you need a walk thru to tell you haw to use even turn the lights on.

Loved the salt water pool and hot tub, putting green and bocchi ball court. Kitchen is easy to use and we made a number of meals there. Very convenient location. We'll be back next year.

Never stay in a hotel again!

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain View Retreat exceeded all our expectations. This is the first year our company decided to ditch the hotel scene and rent a home for our entire crew. There were 9 of us, male and female, so that was ground breaking in and of itself. We each had our own space, bathroom, so we didn't feel cramped or invading one's privacy. That was my first requirement of a home, we had to feel comfortable living together for 5 days and 4 nights. The house is incredible. The view, the backyard with all the games (bocce, horseshoes, putting green, ping pong), the pool heated to 85 degrees, the patio furniture and fire pit - all just amazing and very comfortable. We visited La Quinta during a rare rain storm. The first 2 days it rained and it was extremely cold, but with all the blankets we were still able to enjoy the outside areas. Each bedroom was unique with comfortable beds, bathroom had all the amenities, towels were plentiful, art on the walls not the bare walls you find in so many AirBnB's - really like being at your own home, except their art is much better than mine. We hired a chef for 3 of our meals, 1 for just us and then 2 for our clients. We had dinner for 20 one night and desserts and bocce for another night. The game room was where it all came together, pool table, huge TV, wet bar. We spent most of our time there and at the dining room table working during the day and eating at night. We got more accomplished in 5 days than we have in 5 months and the community feel just made it awesome. We all vowed to never stay in a hotel again during an event like the one we attended at the nearby resort. This is our new way of doing business and I highly recommend that to you as well or just stay at this house for a great retreat. Restaurants nearby, shopping across the street. Andy, this was the best AirBnB I've been in over the past 3 years. We all appreciate you and your family offering up your home to all of us. We will be back - in November. Thanks!

Amazing home and great for a group

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain View Retreat home is absolutely stunning! A group of us stayed for a reunion and from the moment everyone walked in the door they were stunned by how well the house was put together and the amount to do there. From pool, to bocce to horseshoes and everything in between, the house is incredibly well taken care of. Andy was great about keeping me informed of everything prior to the trip and couldn't have asked for more, we will definitely be back!

Just Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing house! Andy was extremely accommodating and helpful. House perfectly located but feels very secluded. We had a large family group ranging in ages 1- 84 yrs old, and there was something for everyone. Never a bored moment. We'll definitely be back!!

Great property for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at the Mountain View Retreat. If you love fresh herbs and fruit, you will love it here! The entire property is surrounded by fruit trees and herbs! The outdoor area is also great in that there is plenty of shaded space by the pool as well as bocce, a putting green, and a big lawn for games.

We had a group of 20 and enjoyed that everyone could have their own space. I will mention that the house is a bit of a maze- many of the rooms are connected by bathrooms, and sometimes it seems as though you have to walk through a different bedroom in order to get to your own room. However most rooms have direct access to the outside, so we just went outside to get back to the livingroom, dining room, etc. The floor map that the owner has is very helpful! Also one of the master suites is interesting in that it has 2 king beds in it- so best for a family or 2 couples that are very comfortable with each other!

All in all, of the 5 big home that I've rented in Palm Springs, this was by far the nicest- beautifully decor, nice appliances, well kept grounds and beautiful views of the mountains. Plus its across the street from a big shopping complex with a Trader Joes in it, so we could pick up last minute groceries whenever we needed to.

Andy was very communicative with any questions that came up while we were there. Thanks for having us, Andy!
