Live it up in Beverly Hills or mingle with the locals on Melrose Avenue. Golf your way through the desert or fill your feed with Instagram-worthy landmarks. No matter your style, you’ll find your niche in California — and it’s sure to be glamorous. Where to stay? From the mid-century modern gems of Palm Springs to the celebrity-laden pads of Beverly Hills, these California villas are the answer for your next trip west.
California’s Desert Cities region is known to be a world leader in both golf course volume and quality. Valencia, a California villa in a gated community, is perfectly positioned — between Avenue 48 and 50 in Indio — to snag a tee time at any of the surroundings clubs. With Rancho La Quinta to its west and Indian Palms to its right, plus The Citrus Club, Mountain View, and Plantation all nearby as well, this section in Indio is as well-suited as you’ll find for your next golf getaway. For non-golfers, Valencia is just 10 miles from shopping and dining in Old Town La Quinta. The vacation home has five bedrooms in the main house, and one additional room in a guest house. All guests can enjoy its saltwater pool with a waterfall and a hot tub, plus an alfresco terrace with an outdoor television.

Beverly Grove (Beverly Hills)
There are countless ways to visit Los Angeles, but it’s hard to beat the Beverly Hills lifestyle, even if for just a week or two at a time. Beverly Grove delights with classic 90210 architecture: white exterior, French white oak flooring, an open concept floor plan, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. And scenic city views are seen from just about everywhere inside and outside the home, including its infinity pool and terrace, and three wraparound balconies — one on each floor. Life at Beverly Grove can be as connected or disconnected as guests choose: SmartHome technology allows guests to control their surroundings remotely, and a home theater with couch seating is the perfect place to host movie night. On the other hand, a private cabana with a massage table allows guests to clear their minds. For moments of total privacy, head down to the private tree-surrounded balcony where a set of wooden stairs lead down to a teahouse and koi pond.
