Consider yourself a heavy dink-er? 2022 proved that you either like pickleball or you’re wrong. With the addition of pickleball courts in 6 of our homes, we figured it’s time we give these courts their shining moment… since we already gave our homes with private tennis courts theirs. 

Grab your racquet—it’s game on.

1. The Reserve at Polo Villas – La Quinta, CA

The Reserve are our newest additions to the Polo Villas neighborhood in Coachella Valley. The Reserve #15 and The Reserve #18 have their very own pickleball court, pool, and fire pit—which we think makes this already conveniently-located home that much better for festival season. If you’d rather have a bocce ball instead of a pickleball court, you might be in the wrong blog, but also The Reserve homes #12 and #16 have those.

2. The Riesling Retreat – Temecula, CA

The Riesling Retreat: Where day dinking meets day drinking. This Temecula getaway was aptly named a retreat with its plethora of activities. Spend days playing pickleball, volleyball, basketball, or even putt-putt. Hang inside in the game room with a pool table, ping pong table, and foosball. Head back outside for the pool, fire pit, and alfresco dining.

3. The Date Palm Estate – Indio, CA

Fun date idea: a game of pickleball at The Date Palm Estate. This Coachella Valley stay embodies luxury and was designed for the active group. With its pickleball court, saltwater pool, bocce ball court, six arcade games, a movie theater, home sound system, a fire pit, outdoor grill, and last but not least, a breakfast bar, you’ll never run out of things to do.

4. Farrier – Paradise Valley, AZ

This Scottsdale vacation home? Baller. And not just for its pickleball court. Farrier offers an extra-decadent vacation with its pool, outdoor dining area, ping pong table. Inside you’ll find a  stone fireplace, wet bar, pool table, and marble floors, and the coziest bedrooms to make you want to extend your vacation another week or two. 

FYI, that’s totally an option. Check out our Month+ Stays here.

5. Nahana – Indio, CA

Ballin’ on the pickleball court! This Coachella Valley property embodies a California sunset with all pink courts for pickleball, tennis, and volleyball. When you’re all tuckered out, soak in the pool loungers—perfect for those summer reads. At night, gather round the sunken fire pit and cheers to the good life that is Nahana.

6. Buena Vista – Thermal, CA

If your group has a designated dinker, we think they’ll be pleased with this property. Buena Vista is a Coachella Valley estate with a tennis court that doubles as a pickleball court, a 60 ft pool, a freshwater lake with a paddle boat, paddle boards and kayaks, billiards, shuffleboard, a fire pit, an actual saloon, a soccer field, and so much more.

7. Mirabella – Indio, CA

Double trouble – Mirabella has a gorgeous tennis court that also serves as a pretty great pickleball court. On top of that, it also comes with a saltwater pool, a 5-hole pitch and putt golf course, and a private lake with a dock for kayaking and paddle boating—so TBH, we think you’ll be just fine staying at this Coachella Valley estate. 

8. Winding Down – Troutman, NC

A full day of pickleball means you need a good space for your evening of Winding Down—and that’s exactly what this Lake Norman home can provide. This lakeside home boasts plenty of new additions: a private pickleball court, a new pool, and a man cave (which we have mixed feelings about, because where’s the lady cave?) Anyway, all are welcome to give the game their best shot at this home. 

9. Casa del Colibri – Palm Springs, CA to Casa del Colibri. This Palm Springs home has a game for every player. Break a sweat on the private pickleball court with views of the desert mountains. Roast s’mores at the firepit lounge. Show who’s boss around the billiards table, bocce ball court, or foosball table. Or say “screw it, I’m on vacation” and opt for wasting the day away on a pool float. Whatever works.

10. Azalea Retreat – Sherrills Ford, NC

Azalea Retreat is a Lake Norman home serving looks, activities, and lake views—what more could you ask for? Enjoy private access to your very own pickleball court, private pool, shuffleboard, expansive deck, arcade game, and room for (drumroll, please) 34 guests.

11. Nahana – Indio, CA

Great minds dink alike. Nahana is a 6-bedroom stay with all you and the crew need for a pretty-in-pink trip to Coachella Valley. Engage in some friendly competition on the pink pickleball and volleyball courts, cool off by the pool, or soak in the pool after a day of exploring the desert.

12. Chateau Syrah – Temecula, CA

The game is so on at Chateau Syrah in Temecula. This home has both a pickleball and basketball court, a private pool, an outdoor kitchen and grill, a fireplace with cozy seats, tons of outdoor seating around the property, a billiards table, foosball and a ping pong table.. So yeah, we’ll meet you there.  

13. Mesquite38 – Thermal, CA

Game, set, match at Mesquite38. This estate in Coachella Valley has two of our favorite pickleball courts—partially because of their cerulean blue color surrounded by contrastingly pink flora (can you say “gorg?”)…but also because of the unparalleled amenities this property provides. We can’t fit them all in this blog, but our favorites are the: oversized hot tub, two bocce ball courts, spacious pool house with a bar, a gym, huge pool, a tennis court, and 6 beach cruiser bikes.
