Desert gem with enclosed yard, private pool, patio, game room, & high-speed WiFi

Nestled among some of the country's best golf courses and just an easy drive from Stagecoach and Coachella festival grounds, this spacious Indio home is the perfect choice for a SoCal desert getaway. This four-bedroom gem is ready and equipped for family fun, featuring a fully-enclosed backyard, pool and covered patio area, and a converted garage game room. Spend your days soaking up the rays on the expansive pool deck and cool off with a dip in the sparkling waters. When you start to work up an appetite, fire up the private gas grill for a backyard barbecue. When the sun starts to set, keep the party going outside around the outdoor firepit. If you want to up the ante, head into the game room for some friendly competition; work on your alignment on the practice putting green, go head-to-head with a few rounds of ping-pong, or duke it out on the Capcom Street Fighter video game console. Giant-size Connect 4 and Jenga are also available.

The open-concept interior features strong natural lighting and modern essentials including central AC, WiFi, and a private washer/dryer. The full kitchen is well-equipped for home cooking. A built-in breakfast bar and separate dining nook each offer seating for four and the formal dining table is set for six. Kick-back in the electric sofa recliners and find your favorite shows and movies to stream before heading for bed.

This single-level layout features four bedrooms on one side of the house. Three guest rooms share access to a full, hall bathroom. The primary suite includes direct access to the pool deck and an en suite bathroom with a separate tub and shower.

This home was perfect for our needs, we just wanted a little getaway before school started, and this beautiful spacious home fit the bill perfectly! The pool was clean and there was plenty of patio furniture for our party, not to mention the kids LOVED the game room in the garage! Thank you for letting us enjoy this home!

House is great. It was clean and good location. Game Room is an A+. It would be great more flexibility with check in/out time. Specially Checking out little later than 10 am with no additional charge

We loved the location, the saltwater pool, the garage game room (nice touch!), and it’s on a cul-de-sac which is perfect for kids scootering and playing.

Description says there’s an HOA. This isn’t true, based upon real estate listings in the neighborhood. It also says it’s a gated neighborhood. This is also false. Therefore, it was unnecessary to provide Vacasa with our vehicle license plate number based on their reasoning that it was required by the HOA/community.

Vacasa really pushes the quiet time of 10pm and reminds you “it is the city municipal code.” I was told by our Vacasa rep that no loud music or sound amplifiers are allowed outside. I said that’s a little ridiculous since our kids scream/play louder than music while swimming.

So, please read the municipal code. Essentially, outdoor music is allowed as long as it reasonably does not bother other neighbors. Be wise; don’t ruin things for other future guests by blasting music. Likewise, Vacasa needs to accurately portray the municipal code to its guests.

The check-in process could have been better. The rep called/FaceTimed the day prior to check us in. Real nice. Then the day off check in, I got an email stating i needed to check in personally at their office. I finally reached a real person, and he actually told me the information in the email was wrong and they needed to change it. “We’ve actually had a lot of customers get very confused by that information.” What!? So fix the email!!

Vacasa’s original description said they charge $72 USD to heat the pool. When I called and asked about it, she said the fee is PER DAY. I noticed Vacasa updated their description to accurately reflect this.

I asked about heating the spa one time via the Vacasa text message communication option. The rep texted that we could hear the spa for no additional cost. When we arrived at the house and it was time to heat it, we could not because the phone rep said we did not pay for it. Nate (Vacasa Manager) called me and listened to my complaint about being told two different things. Nate made it right and allowed us to heat the spa and pool for no cost with assistance from Pete. I greatly appreciate Nate (and Pete) for rectifying the situation, but it was annoying to deal with.

In the hot Sun, that pool was already 80°F without heating it. So paying the astronomical fee to heat it seems like a complete waste and money-grab by Vacasa.

Vacasa charges $85 for late checkout (4 more hours…extended from 10am to 2pm). Not worth it. Another money-grab.

Also didn’t like that the 2 landscapers walked into the backyard with no warning from them or Vacasa. Real awkward. They need to warn the guests when landscapers will be there.

Vacasa’s customer communication is poor overall. They did not respond to me through VRBO (until 3 weeks later, after we’ve already stayed there). I ultimately texted their number (Text2Chat) and received a response. I was left hanging when I asked about heating the spa, so I had to re-engage communication. As mentioned, Nate called and was east to speak with. Nobody got crazy. It was fine.

We’d stay at the house again, but I could do without Vacasa.
