About This Listing
City of Indian Wells now restricts residential rentals to 7 day minimum.
First I must inform you that city regulation now restricts residential rentals to MONTHLY ONLY. You will find this "Hawaiian" theme room to be a very plush, well-appointed 5 star accommodation, complete with a large private bathroom and abbreviated kitchenette. Our guests might say that we're trying to out do the $200.00+ rooms competing--yet charge our guests much less. Our price includes 11 1/2% required room tax. (A 3 night minimum also required by the city.) Consider that Airbnb's fees for booking are far less than most hotel's parking fees!
Please also be assured that we maintain a high standard of cleanliness and decorum.
You have a private entrance to the room where you will find additional outdoor living space of almost another 200 sq feet with patio table/chairs. Should you decide to opt to eat in less quiet surroundings, you will most often find 20% to 50% discounted restaurant coupons in the room. There is also a BBQ grill in pool/spa area. Our salt water pool/spa have just been remodeled. The spa is heated but pool is not. Pool/spa area is just a few steps away and is usually left to the privacy of our guests. Parking is close and easy-without fees.
Your bedroom and bath do not open to the rest of the house, so are fully equipped with numerous amenities listed below, including a bubbly foot massage basin to soothe your weary feet after spending many an hour touring the area.
Our 3400 sq ft home is located in a safe and prestigious neighborhood, Rancho Palmeras Estates in Indian Wells, the Beverly Hills of the desert, within 30 minutes of the airport and close to most that the area has to offer. You will find a more detailed listing below of the numerous amenities of this Hawaiian theme room. (See our full list as pdf's with photos)
The room has a Queen size bed with foam pad for extra comfort, a leather recliner, as well as a desk/chair and flat screen 32" TV. You have Internet wifi access. As guests, you also have your own private 7'x9' bathroom and abbreviated kitchenette/breakfast bar. The room's entrance is a private 8' sliding glass door with an attractive 20"x24" stain glass piece on the non-opening section. You have a lovely view of the colorful patio garden---against a back drop of various mountain views.
Your abbreviated kitchenette is equipped with a 3' refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, bowls, cups, silverware and other utensils. (Most everything but a kitchen sink!) 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, and a selection of 3 dry cereals.
Bath is furnished with plush towels, wash cloths, hair dryer, magnifying mirror, soaps and shampoos, as well as iron/board, and a number of other incidentals, including robes.
Your room is as clean as you would expect of a 5 star hotel room. Please feel free to request housekeeping and laundry service during your stay.
We don't smoke/drink nor do we have animals or children in the home. The house environment is quiet and the neighborhood quite peaceful. We have frequented many Bed & Breakfasts over the years, so you can expect us to know how to welcome and accommodate you most kindly--yet be very respectful of your privacy!

We a small group of three girls at their home for Stagecoach. Ned and Sandra were more than accommodating- definitely more than what we had expected. Their home was BEAUTIFUL! unfortunately, we were only there for the weekend and had a tight schedule, we were unable to take advantage of their beautiful backyard and their pool. We had everything we needed in the room which was very convenient. I would say its a good amount of space for two people comfortably, but we were already forewarned that it may be a bit tight for three people. Regardless, worked out fine and more than we ever expected. We cant wait to come back. We would definitely stay here again, no hesitation. :)
THANK YOU NED & SANDRA!
AMAZING! I stayed at Ned&Sandra's apartment during Coachella Festival 2014 (with my husband) and this room is one of the best I've never stayed since I'm an Airbnb's member! Super-clean, with a big bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Ned and Sandra were really great hosts: extremely helpful, they gave us all the infos we needed to get to Coachella festival. They provided the room with plenty of amenities: shampoo and toiletries in the bathroom, while in the small "kitchen" we found fresh fruits, oatmeal and cereal bars. The refrigerator was well-stocked with milk, a lot of water and everything one might need for a breakfast in the small (and LOVELY) patio. For Coachella festival-goers, this location is absolutely perfect: ten minutes driving (even less) to reach the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, where there's the Coachella Bus Station. We are looking forward to our return trip next year!
We had a great time staying at Ned and Sandra's house.
We spent most of the time at Coachella festival, but the pool in the morning was such a delight.
Sandra and Ned were very friendly and welcoming with great communication throughout our stay.
We would definitely stay here again for our next time at Coachella :)
It was the best of both words. I got to go to my fun event and at the same time I was able go to this room and relax and rest. The place is centrally located to El Paseo and The Empire Polo Club on the other end. Ned & Sandra were very hospitable as they went the extra mile to provide for my special needs. I will stay here again in the future...
After a long day at the Coachella music festival, Ned and Sandra's place was what the doctor prescribed! The room is exactly what it looks like plus little added accents, such as different bath salts and confetti in the bathroom and lots of breakfast choices in their kitchenette. Definitely enjoyed our stay, even though we didn't have a chance to see much of Ned and Sandra since we were so busy!
A great experience for my first time using Airbnb. Sandra was out of town, but Ned made sure we well taken care of. Everything was exactly as described in the room description and Ned made us feel very welcome. Poolside breakfast was awesome. I would stay again if I was in the area.
