About Ryad

We're a family of four (2 girls ages 8 and 5). We live in the Los Angeles area. I work in finance and my wife is an attorney at law.

Our interests include architecture and design, travel, food and wine, books, film, history and culture.

Why Ryad chose Cathedral City

We fell in love with the Palm Springs area many years ago. This led us to buy a secondary home in the California desert. Dar Sabrina was a total gut remodel. We finished the house update in the fall of 2006. Most furnishings were custom made to our taste and reflect our love of modern and minimalist design and appreciation for unique, handcrafted furniture and accessories from all over the world.

Dar means house in Moroccan. Our first daughter Sabrina was born the same year we began the house remodel. Dar Sabrina means Sabrina’s House.

What makes this house unique

As you drive into the Coachella valley, leaving behind the smog and frenetic pace of Los Angeles, something magical happens. Time slows down. The sunlight gets more vibrant and the sky turns several shades brighter and bluer. All the colors around you become more vivid. The magnificent backdrop of mountains, palm trees and desert vistas takes you in. You feel the soothing and warm air on your skin and in your lungs. You feel peace. You don’t want to leave....ever.

Dar Sabrina is our little oasis, our piece of the desert with its sheltering sky and starry nights.

It is now midnight. Time to go for a dip in the pool.

Wonderful stay at Dar Sabrina

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in the Palm Springs area for many years and I can honestly say the Dar Sabrina is one of the best. Interaction with the owner was very easy and the home is not only beautiful but very well appointed. The location and proximity to downtown Palm Springs, the El Paseo area, and the airport is excellent. I would highly recommend Dar Sabrina to anyone looking for a modern, stylish home in a great location.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this house! The home is roomy and comfortable and very nicely appointed. It has a great kitchen and nice bathrooms. We loved the flat screen TVs and the pool area. Has a nice amount of patio furniture, where we enjoyed cocktails every afternoon before dinner. Ryad was a great host and was in frequent contact with us to make sure everything was okay. There was even an awesome welcome basket waiting for us when we arrived! We also loved the central location - it was 15 minutes to get to Palm Springs but we could also easily drive to Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Indian Wells.

Relaxing and Stunning Retreat Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Dar Sabrina and Ryad never disappoints :). The house has beautiful modern mid century/moroccan decor appointed in the rooms and all of the beds are comfortable and clean. The backyard is perfect to lounge poolside with surround sound speakers and the kitchen & living areas are spacious. As mentioned in my previous review, Ryad has put a lot of thought and detail into the house, with ample linens and towels, washer & dryer and thorough instructions on how to use and operate the alarm, TV, etc. etc. He was very responsive during our stay if anything came up and made the entire process leading up to our visit a breeze. We're looking forward to our upcoming stay in just a few months, would highly recommend this place!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just had two wonderful months at Dar Sabrina. As soon as we opened the door, it felt like home. The house is bright, spacious, and certainly exceeded our expectations. We spent many hours in the beautiful, sunny backyard with its wonderful pool/spa. We enjoyed preparing meals in the large, well equipped kitchen with its huge island and many bar stools. The beds were very comfortable. There was lots of linens, duvets, and pillows. I was awed to see the cabinet full of big fluffy towels both for indoor and poolside use .Ryad has thought of many details in amenities which enabled our stay to be so comfortable.

We liked the very quiet location of this home. It is close to everything you need. Grocery stores, movie theaters, shopping areas, restaurants abound.

Cycling the whole area was fun. The bike/cart paths were a different way to get around town. We enjoyed the Tram, Air Museum, Joshua Tree Park, Living Desert, the hiking trails in the area.

Ryad enabled the arrangements for renting this home to be very easy. He was a pleasure to work with while we were making our plans and was then attentive to every need once we were in the home.

We would highly recommend this home. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed staying here and seeing the whole Palm Springs area as we have not spent any time here before. Can't wait to return. Thanks, Ryad, for sharing your home.

Great Place for a Family Party

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Dar Sabrina celebrating a milestone birthday. The area was so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the lovely layout of the home and the surround sound music system. It was so nice to have a home to come back to after a day or dinner out in the town. My young daughter loved the pool, it is not that deep which was great for her. Only wish the pool got hotter than it did. We ran the spa heater but it never quiet got warm enough for me..i like it 83 degrees. Everyone had a great time and loved the idea of a rented house. Would stay again!
