The ultimate Coachella Valley experience includes staying at the best villa rentals available to wealthy clients. Here are a few suggestions for sprawling private homes that offer privacy, stunning pools, and expansive views of all the fun and action of April’s music festivals.
On the Rocks Estate is built directly into the mountainside in the exclusive Mesa neighborhood. The original 1959 design by architect Hugh Kaptur includes a stunning infinity pool and eclectic contemporary art and decor. Three separate bedrooms including a master suite, make the home ideal for large groups. There is a large patio between the two buildings with a bar area, fire pit, and a projector for outdoor movie screenings. Staying at the On the Rocks Estate costs $3,000 per night plus taxes and fees.
Another popular choice is the Polo Villa House 6 – a five-bedroom, four-bathroom contemporary estate only less than a mile from the Empire Polo Field. It can be booked as part of the Coachella Platinum Package ($110,000 for a minimum six-night stay), which indulges guests to eight VIP passes to Coachella, luxury transportation to and from the music festival, access to the festival’s Safari Tent campground and lounge, and dinner for eight during a night of their choice at the festival.
The newly built El Dorado Estate oozes Mediterranean appeal and tranquillity. Located in secluded Indian Wells on more than 2 acres, the El Dorado estate has a private tennis court, a saltwater pool, and a 200-foot slip-n-slide. There are four bedrooms plus a loft and six bathrooms that can easily sleep up to 10 guests. Throughout the month of April, rates are $50,000 for an all-inclusive week.
