The Desert Gem
Palm Desert, California
The Desert Gem
This Palm Desert home was designed for those looking to escape to the desert and live like the movie stars. A completely renovated home built in the golden age of Hollywood, it accommodates up to 12 people with 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,500 square feet and a couple of sleeper beds nestled throughout. No details have been spared in this dramatic rendition of postmodern design.
At The Desert Gem, your yard is your private oasis. Completely gated with privacy walls, you have ample amount of space to soak up the sun around your private pool or watch the sun set over the mountains. The yard is fully lit with lights guiding the pathways, as well as LED lights within the swimming pool and hot tub that change colors! The outdoor oasis is built to have everything you need to relax and forget about the busy world going on beyond the walls.
Once you finally decide to leave the yard and head inside, you will be greeted by minimalistic charm. The living room décor is simply perfect, reflecting post-modern textures and styles that blend with new-age luxuries. Notice that not only is that a large sectional sofa, but it is also a blue suede sofa!
The kitchen has been entirely updated to accommodate the modern-day chefs looking to vacation in the Desert. It includes stainless steel appliances, abundant storage space, and an island big enough for friends and families to gather around.
Every bedroom in the house is decorated in the finest styles of minimalism. The simple color pallet with pops of contrast from pillows, carpets, and plants make it easy to keep your mind clear and at peace. Each room also includes its own private entrance from outside.
Upon request, massages, chefs and anything you might need can be arranged. How could you say no to a week at this Gem?
PLEASE NOTE- This property is completely non-smoking both inside and out.

A 5 Night Stay That Should’ve Been 7
The reason for the title and my rating is because after reserving 7 nights (March 1-8) deposited by the owner (who didn’t reply to my follow up email or text message until 2 days later by which time I felt it necessary to book seats on two of the very few direct/non-stop flights for the noted dates) he reneged on his commitment to accommodate us for the nights of March 1 & 2 leaving it to us and ThirdHome to find alternate accommodations for those two nights. I can only assume the owner mistakenly deposited March 1-8 (nobody’s perfect) but I’m still waiting for an explanation for why he couldn’t honor his 7 night commitment OR simply an apology for this. Either would’ve been appreciated. ”
Gem was Perfect
The Gem was in perfect location for us as we could easily walk for groceries dinner and shopping on El Paseo. Home was well equipped inside and was roomy and comfortable for us and our quests. The massive yard and pool area allowed us to spend our days by the pool. Owner was super responsive to all of our needs. We would stay here again with no second thoughts. Thanks Josh.”
