The Original OASIS.

The LILY PAD has been updated with modern features such as NEST thermostats, a SONOS sound system, 55” 4K SMART TVs, as well as ROKU-enabled Smart TVs in other rooms. NOTE: We do not super-photoshop or over color-saturate our photos. We believe in presenting our home as her true self. She's a natural beauty that does not need a lot of make-up!

Located in the prestigious ‘Montage at Santa Rosa’, an exclusive, private gated community located by the Empire Polo Club, in walking distance to Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals. The home boasts “THE BEST POOL IN MONTAGE!” Our home comfortably sleeps 12 guests and has enough parking for 6 vehicles. (Note: street parking is not allowed in Montage. Be sure your rental has enough parking for your party!)

The Great Room is the center of an open and spacious floor plan, perfect for entertaining with plenty of space for family games and social gatherings. Longtime friends will find a wealth of purlieus and comforts throughout the property for meaningful reunions and long conversations. Groups can enjoy life’s celebrations in exclusive elegance. Hard-working executives will find a prime yet relaxing escape from the world. We like to think of our home as the Martha’s Vineyard of the Desert: privileged leisure without pretension. While the Great Room offers expansive play, the individual suites and bedrooms are tucked far enough away from the action for those who prefer more solitude or indulgent midday naps.

Release your Joie de Vivre with a plunge in our REJUVENATING SALT-WATER POOL, or soak deep in the HEATED JET SPA. Bask in the sun on the pool’s BAJA SHELF, or play under one of the four WATER FOUNTAINS. At night, the pool and backyard become a magical sanctuary where guests can chat around the OUTDOOR FIREPLACE or go night-swimming under a starlit sky.

With six-foot stucco walls and PRIVACY bushes, the backyard provides refined seclusion in your own personal oasis. The Casita is a separate Guest House in the backyard, a perfect haven for both introverts and alphadogs. The East Patio features an OUTDOOR LIVING ROOM, BBQ ISLAND with Stainless Steel Grill and mini-fridge. Wall-mounted ROKU-enabled SmartTV allows guests to watch the game or enjoy favorite shows poolside from the SUNBRELLA couch or covered STONE-TILED oversized Table. On the West Patio, guests can read and relax on any of the three CHAISE LOUNGES, snack at the UMBRELLA-SHADED table, or play in either of the two yards.

FULLY-EQUIPPED KITCHEN, PRIVATE BATHROOMS and PLENTY OF SEATING inside and out provide home-like comfort throughout your vacation experience.

Palm desert oasis!

“Loved the location and the community this home was in. Very quiet and private. Spacious and clean. From the check in process to the exit, great communication and hassle free!”

— Deirdre S.

Great Stay!

“The house was everything we hoped it would be and more. Each room was spacious with plenty of closet space. The living room couches were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. And best of all the pool and especially the hot tub were amazing. In terms of location it’s perfect for anyone going to Coachella, as the entrance is only a 20min walk away. To top it all off Skip was very responsive and accommodating on requests.“

— Roahan K.


“Property was clean, easy to access, no issues. Skip was very responsive to any questions or concerns. Looking to come back again.”

— Arno A.

Best Pool and Lots of Space!

“We enjoyed a family vacation at Montage and for us the highlight was the pool. We have rented lots of VRBO places with lots of pools and this was the best pool we’ve experienced. It was warm and clean and easy to control. Even though the weather was bad (rain, flooding, and cold) we were in the pool every day. There was LOTS of space in the home, the kitchen was really well equipped with all kinds of pots and pans. We had a few maintenance issues while we were there and we let Skip know and he responded very quickly and very professionally. The bedding and towels could use some updating, but we had a great time and would recommend this home for a large family or group.“

— Coe H.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

“Our group of 10 girlfriends had the most amazing weekend at Skip’s property! The pool is fabulous, the house is beautiful, and the location is great! We loved the house so much that we only went out for groceries! Can’t wait to come back!“

— Heather W.

A Beautiful Property With an Amazing Host!

“My group and I couldn't have asked for a better stay than the Original Oasis. A beautiful property with a great pool - those are just a few of many different amenities that were provided for us. Skip is an amazing and extremely accommodating host. Very prompt with our messages and always checked up on us before, during, and after our stay. Will definitely come back!“

— Alexander R.
