Memorial Day Weekend has come to mean not only a long, much-needed three day weekend but also one of the busiest holiday weekends in the year. Despite the warmer climate year-round, Southern Californians are excited to officially dive into summer and are expected to hit the road – and airports – in record numbers this weekend. To escape the hustle and bustle that has become Memorial Day weekend, Hilton & Hyland presents five sanctuary homes that are the ultimate getaway.
25 Sierra Vista, Rancho Mirage – Palm Springs
This extraordinary 5,000-square-foot Brian Foster masterpiece sits high above the desert floor in the 24-hour guard gated community of Mirada Estates. The spectacular jetliner views of the snowcapped mountains combined with the illuminated city lights across the desert floor below are truly invigorating and inspiring. Designed for both upscale entertaining and comfortable living, the home seamlessly blends the indoors with the outdoors by its 60ft wide disappearing glass doors. An expansive outdoor lanai with 60ft infinity-edge pool and spa, dual fire pits, multiple areas for lounging, and panoramic vistas create the ultimate outdoor experience. Mirada Estates offers a rarefied residential life of custom built homes to the owner’s preferred design, style and architecture. From the first class fitness facilities to 5-Star dining, catering and accommodations, Mirada homeowners are exclusively entitled to a multitude of amenities offered by its neighbor, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The hip and cool vibe of downtown Palm Springs and La Quinta are just minutes away.
1231 Lago Vista Drive – Beverly Hills
No expense was spared in designing this unrivaled 7-bedroom, 11-bath residence at 1231 Lago Vista Dr. 33 soaring floor-to-ceiling Rimadesio Italian glass doors seamlessly invite you into the sweeping backyard, unveiling beautifully manicured lawns juxtaposed against the stain-proof stone composite slab, and chic edge pools. The surrounding trees provide the utmost privacy, giving you permission to completely get lost in this Lago Vista property’s splendor. Boasting a 600-bottle floating backlit wine cellar that opens with a thumbprint & a state-of-the-art home theater, guests never have to leave. The openness of the home allows guests to flow from one sumptuous level to the next, making socializing, or retreating, that much easier.
Through security gates down a private tree-lined driveway, an exclusive celebrity compound awaits. Sitting beautifully on over an acre of rolling greens and gardens in an extraordinary setting, this property truly is a hidden gem. Wind down to the pool with Jacuzzi, BBQ/kitchen, fire pit and seating area and inhale the breathtaking city and canyon views. A private & serene 5-star retreat just minutes from the heart of the city below.

Grand European-style estate with 100-feet of bluff top panoramic ocean views on prestigious Point Dume. Masterfully redecorated and sparing no expense in improvements over the past year, this gated and private two-story, 7 bed, 8 bath home with hardwood and stone floors throughout is a superb blend of modern elegance and impeccable craftsmanship. In lieu of competing for space on the beach to relax, indulge in over an acre of park-like grounds with countless outdoor dining and seating patios or take a dip in the pool and spa. Whichever you decide, relish in the ocean breeze and beautiful sounds of privacy.
Set atop famed Mulholland Drive this magnificently designed architectural estate resides on over four acres, offering an unparalleled lifestyle of seclusion, luxurious comfort and lavish entertaining.
