So many great desert opportunities to enjoy, besides the nearby hiking, restaurants, and shopping, you can enjoy one of dozens of world class golf tournaments, the annual Indian Wells Tennis tournament consistently ranked one of the best in the world, world class music music festivals, enjoy a day of polo at the polo grounds, the living desert zoo and so much more!
Please note, we strive for all of our guests to have great stays. As a result we work with the top 3 pool cleaners in the desert. Despite that, the desert can have high winds that can turn a perfectly clean pool into a dirty pool in 10 minutes or less. Please report and we will send a pool cleaner as soon as possible. We also try to keep pool skimmers on site at all of our homes. There is the possibility of boatman bugs in the desert, they are completely harmless but can fall from the sky, generally there s a chance for them in August and September, while they can be killed and removed when they are falling from the sky, they will return minutes after treating. There can be sand storms in the desert. While we can promise a pool cleaner will clean the pool 2-3 times per week, we cannot control acts of god, nor are they grounds for cancellation.
The pool heat is on-demand, meaning we do not heat it when it s not in use or when no guests are staying. It heats up about 3 degrees per hour, and it can get down into the 60 s during the winter, so if you want it heated upon your arrival, please keep that in mind and notify us. October Through the end of May, the charge is $100/day if pool heating is paid upfront for every day of the stay or $125/day if not. Spa-only heating costs $40/day if prepaid for the entire stay and $70/day if not. Most resorts heat pools into the low 80 s we allow guests that pay for pool heat to heat pool to the mid-80s and spas as high as they like. Please keep in mind, in mid-winter, larger pools will have a hard time even reaching the mid-80s; pool temperature is not guaranteed. However, generally, low to mid 80 s is common, even mid-winter. For longer-term stays, the owners cover utilities of up to $500/month, while the renter covers utility overages over $500/month.
During the colder months, the pool and spa cannot be efficiently heated at the same time. It s best to heat the pool to the desired temp, then start heating the spa about 45 minutes prior to use. If you elect to pay for pool heat, you can message us 24 hours prior to arrival to start heating the pool. We recommend that you download the app and control the temperature yourself upon arrival.
For any stay of over 27 nights, you may be required to fill out a RentSpree application and wire or Zelle a deposit equal to one month s rent.
