House - Private room · Rancho Palmeras Dr, Indian Wells, CA 92210, United States

The Space

The "Monterey Garden" room hasn't been on airbnb nearly as long as our "Hawaiian" room, but is also well appointed, with comfortable furniture and a 37" wide screen TV! This casita-like room has a private entrance and bathroom, as well as an abbreviated kitchenette. Our guests in either room might say that we're trying to out do the $200.00+ rooms competing--yet we still only charge our guests a much lower rate, which also includes an 11.25% transient occupancy tax that is required along with a three -night minimum by the City of Indian Wells. We don't charge cleaning or parking fees. (Consider that Airbnb's fees for booking are far less than most hotel's parking fees!) Please email us if the particular dates you desire aren't available and we will let you know of other closeby dates that might be available.
You have a lovely view of the colorful patio garden---which provides additional living space, with a small dining table/chairs just outside your door. For more expansive veiws of the desert and nearby Mount Eisenhower, there are comfortable chairs and chaise lounges that surround the newly remodeled and renovated pool and spa. The patio overhang is equipped with misters and fans that cool the area by at least 10 degrees on hot, summer days. A brand new Weber grill and toaster oven are also available for your more serious cooking needs. Your hosts are also pleased to supply you with their favorite drinking and dining spots in the desert. We supply at no extra charge: coffee, orange juice, milk, cocoa, herbal teas, and plenty of bottled water--as well as oatmeal, fresh fruits, popcorn, bagels, cream cheese, snack bars, and a selection of three dry cereals.
Our salt water pool/spa have just been completely remodeled. The spa is heated in the fall/winter but the pool is not. Pool/spa area is just a few steps away and most often left to the privacy of our guests. Parking is as close as the front curb.

Please notice that this room is also listed on the first page of Airbnb's most "recommended" list in most desert cities. Our 3600 sq ft home is located in a quiet, safe, and prestigious neighborhood, Rancho Palmeras Estates in Indian Wells. And we are located less that two miles from El Paseo, familiarly known as the Rodeo Drive of the Desert. the Beverly Hills of the desert and approximately 30 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport and the four private jet ports. the airport and close to most that the area has to offer.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Its a beautiful stately home. The high ceilings along with the natural light make it very inviting. Ned and Sandra are very welcoming and down to earth.

    November 2012
  • I had a wonderful four night stay in Ned and Sandra's beautiful master suite. The accommodation was clean, spacious, quiet, and private with all the amenities. The neighbourhood is beautiful, safe and convenient to get around by bike or vehicle. The pool area is lovely and relaxing with pretty flowers and trickling waterfall and sitting areas. Ned and Sandra were friendly and quick to respond to my requests prior to booking and welcomed me warmly upon arrival. I've already told all my friends about this b&b, now I hope it will be available when I return next time!

  • We had a wonderful stay with Ned & Sandra while we were in the desert for the Stagecoach Music Festival. We enjoyed breakfast by the pool each day, then headed to the event in the afternoon. So relaxing before and after the craziness of the event. This was the perfect way to do it as opposed to the traditional, and overpriced, hotel option.
    Thanks again!!

  • We were visiting for the Coachella Music Festival. Instead of camping, we desired a nicer place to stay this year to recharge and relax.

    We truly found an oasis in the desert.

    We were greeted upon arrival and lead to our room. The stone path was generously blooming with flowers and lush with palm trees and bushes. Ah, the fragrance of vacation.

    We even had fresh-cut roses in our room. As if right on cue, most bloomed the very next morning.

    Every morning, we had tea right outside the sliding glass doors at our shaded, private glass table, among the greenery.

    The view from the pool/spa in the backyard is beautifully balanced with shade and sun. Everywhere you look, there is indeed a clear view of mountains.

    Of course, the room, bathroom and kitchenette were immaculate and clean. Fresh fruits, daytime snacks, beverages and WATER were also available...

    Every detail showed they have a passion and love for hosting guests. They really thought of everything.

    Ned and Sandra get 11 stars from us :))

    April 2012
  • We had a wonderful stay at Ned and Sandra's home. They were very kind, generous and helpful. They even accommodated our last minute request for an extra night. We will definitely stay with them again next time!

    April 2012
  • I always feel as though I am "coming home" when I stay with Ned and Sandra. They always make sure I have everything I need. Not only is the room beautifully and thoughtfully prepared, but the yard is picture perfect. Fresh roses in my room were the perfect touch.
    Thanks once again, Ned and Sandra.

    April 2012
  • We loved our stay with ned and sandra. House was impeccable, comfortable, and the little niceaties that were in our room made it feel like home. We will definately be back next year for a longer stay. Highly recomended, and one of the best parts of our vacation. John & Misty :)

  • We so enjoyed our stay with Ned and Barbara at their beautiful home. They had thought of just everything to make a person feel welcome. There were all sorts of items in our room that came in so handy during our stay. The pool, hot tub and patio were perfect for relaxing. Everything was very clean and we felt very safe and well cared for. They are very gracious hosts and were most helpful whenever we needed directions or suggestions. As a woman, I would highly recommend this accommodation over a hotel as the room, the home, and the neighbourhood were very safe and there was no worry about parking lots, elevators or long, lonely corridors or staircases.

    March 2012
  • We had a lovely time staying in Ned and Sandra's home in the desert. The room was excellent, with total privacy, great treats and hosts responsive to our every need. Our own patio in a lovely garden, use of the pool and spa and freedom to come and go as we pleased made this a great stay, and we would return for certain.

    February 2012
  • My second visit was perfect in every way. Staying with Ned and Sandra makes my trip really special. It is comfort all the way. Beds are lovely, and the attention to detail is over the top. The rooms are beautifully appointed. I will stay here whenever I can and would recommend this lovely place to anyone.
