Indulge in Your Own Private Resort, Groups Welcome
Villa Sereno defies description; it is truly unlike any other accommodations in the desert. Every detail has been attended to, from the crisply ironed, 1,000-thread-count sheets, to the plush sofas around the outdoor fireplace, to the five acres of lush, sprawling lawn that surround the villa. The best part? You get this five-star resort—and its extravagant outdoor living area—all to yourself, for what is likely to be your most relaxing vacation yet.
Elegant, romantic, and inviting, Villa Sereno provides a picture-perfect backdrop for your next romantic getaway, family reunion, or corporate retreat. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom villa sleeps up to eight guests in its lavishly outfitted bedrooms. We also have two casitas adjacent to the villa that can accommodate up to 18 adults. Between the villa and the casitas, there are six full bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own TV with satellite cable, and all of the furniture and linens are of the highest quality. Every time you walk through the house, you’ll notice some new detail, such as the multiple horse show trophies on display.
The kitchen area practically deserves its own listing. The indoor kitchen has windows all along one side that look out onto the pool area, giving the space a bright, open feel. You’ll find several sets of high-quality knives, every spice and seasoning you could ever want, All-Clad pots and pans, a Keurig coffee maker, two ovens, and more. Outside, a second kitchen area offers an enormous Viking range, barbecue, professional-style bar, refrigerator, and more. Between the two kitchens, you’ll have everything you need to throw an epic barbecue or elegant dinner party.
The outdoor living area is anything but ordinary. The pool is flanked by waterfalls and a fire feature, and the hot tub is the perfect venue for watching the sun set over the San Jacinto Mountains. You can also enjoy the panoramic views from one of two plush seating areas, one of which has a fireplace. Kids and adults alike will love the outdoor game area, complete with air hockey, pool, and ping-pong. We also have a four-hole putting green with a sand trap that will challenge even the best golfer in your group.
The five-acre estate is also home to us—the owners—and our Arabian horses and household pets. Some guests are initially uneasy about this arrangement, but once they are here, they realize it’s actually one of the best features of Villa Sereno. Instead of being 100 percent on your own, as you are with most vacation rentals, we act as your personal concierge. Upon your arrival, you’ll get a full tour of the property. Should you have any questions after that, we are easily reachable, located next to the stables approximately 50 yards from the villa. As longtime residents of the area, we have plenty of tips for where to eat and what to do during your stay.
One of our guests described Villa Sereno as “the Disneyland of horse ranches.” We have a full-time groundskeeper who ensures that the property looks (and smells!) like the luxury resort it is. We typically let out two horses at a time to graze, so it’s not unlikely that you’ll wake up to one of our four-legged lawnmowers chomping away at the grass next to your car or hanging out near the pool. If this is a problem, simply let us know—we’re happy to keep the horses out of your way.
Nestled in the Coachella Valley one block from the Empire Polo Club, Villa Sereno feels a world away, but we’re actually very close to some of the area’s biggest attractions. PGA West and other premier golf courses are minutes away, and the nearby towns of La Quinta, Palm Springs, and Palm Desert offer a myriad of restaurants, high-end shops, and day spas. Of course, you could easily spend your entire vacation relaxing on the estate, if you prefer; other than groceries, which we can stock upon request, you’ll have everything you need right here.

My 16 Girlfriends and I stayed at the Villa Sereno, and I felt like I was at my own private estate! The property is beautifully landscaped, and the home has everything you would need for entertaining and relaxing. I truly enjoyed our weekend Bachelorette Party! (Fun Bar, awesome Pool, Billiards, Ping Pong, and Music Sound System that Rocks!!) We stayed on site most of the time because it was so cool. (We had other plans to go out, but cancelled because we all wanted to hang at the "Ranch" . We hired the property Chef one night, and that was really fun. I would definately recommend this property in a heart beat!
