Indian Wells

A Luxurious Oasis and Home to The Nation’s Top Tennis Action.

Welcome to Indian Wells

Tranquility and luxury are the two best ways to describe life in Indian Wells. Bordering Palm Desert and La Quinta — as well as Eisenhower Mountain — the area’s natural beauty is evident throughout every neighborhood. Surrounded by palm trees, sunny skies, and mountain views, it is easy to unwind and relax when residing here.

Currently, the city’s population (which has climbed steadily for the past decade) sits at just over 5,300. In a little more than two hours, you can get to both Los Angeles and San Diego by car. Indian Wells is best known for its role in the tennis world. As a local, you find some of the best spots to both play and watch the sport.

Because it is a premier location, the prices of properties in Indian Wells tend to be a bit higher than nearby neighborhoods. The current median home price sits at just over $1.1 million. However, properties in the area provide spectacular views, offer luxurious features, and have outstanding amenities.
