Desert Ridge Estate is a private lakeside escape that provides a truly unforgettable experience. Equipped with first-class accommodations ideal for larger groups or multiple families, top quality amenities, luxurious furnishings and beautiful surroundings, your stay is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Desert Ridge Estate is far from ordinary, as it is home to several water features, some of the most magnificent views that the desert has to offer, and the ability to offer guests special activities and conveniences that no other luxury vacation property can. All this and much more makes Desert Ridge Estate the perfect choice for an unforgettable vacation, special event, corporate retreat or long-awaited family reunion.

This private estate reflects the natural beauty of the desert. The Desert Ridge Estate offers magnificent 360-degree views of Palm Desert, La Quinta and Indio. The privacy, solitude and restful serenity offer self-rejuvenation to all guests. The property is a relaxed, ranch style house that sleeps 20 people, set on 10 acres.


If you want to swim with the kids in the pool, relax on the large tanning shelf or wind down in the hot tub, this property has something for everyone. Whether it’s a quiet, secluded area to read, playing a game of bocce ball or horseshoe, or enjoying your very own three-acre lake for swimming, paddle boarding or to just have fun fishing.

The Desert Ridge Estate is a great place for family reunions, multi-family stays, golf trips, and corporate groups. Then, of course, special events for celebrations or parties like weddings, birthdays, or any other large group occasion.  The property is ideal for weddings as it is a blank canvas to create your own dream wedding. Additionally, you can host a welcome dinner or a day after brunch or pool party. The landscape and views provide a magnificent backdrop for pictures.

The 1,000 sq. ft. game room provides ample room for hours of entertainment, whether you choose to play a game of billiards, ping pong, shuffleboard, poker or watch the game or a favorite movie in the theater room.

The most exciting addition to be completed by spring of 2024 is the inclusion of a multipurpose sport and entertainment area. It will have a regulation tennis court, two pickleball courts, a half basketball court, a grass volleyball court, a professional bocce ball court, cornhole court, putting green and entertaining area–all overlooking the lake and desert mountains. The lighting design will create ambiance and allow for everything to be played after dark.

Featured on the show Staycation, Desert Ridge Estate prides itself on being unique. They are one of a kind in the Coachella Valley. The Estate is also animal-friendly, with guests being able to bring in their dogs. An elephant and alpaca have also made an appearance at the Estate for weddings. There is accessibility for all ages as well, with a regular pool and a wading pool for the young ones and the residence is all on one story with no steps.

Desert Ridge Estate is not part of a gated community. It is set back and private. The closest neighbor is Shadow Hills High School, and they are huge supporters of all the high school activities, even hosting a back-to-school get together for the staff each year. There’s so much to do on the property without it being far from professional golf courses, the polo grounds, shopping, dining, or other activities in the desert.

The Estate’s large pool and lush surroundings provide a tropical oasis in the center of the desert. The outdoor entertainment area and expansive grass areas can easily accommodate large groups to make your vacation, special event or corporate retreat a reality. Inquire about special events or additional guests and costs to hold parties.
