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.

Great Place for a Family Party

  • 5 out 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!

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 out of 5
If you're looking for one of the most comfortable stays in one of the most beautiful houses around, look no further! From the well-stocked kitchen to the comfortable bedrooms with blackout shades to the nice, cool pool to the great sound system, topped off by great big showers in both bathrooms, this house has it all. The Moroccan motif permeates throughout and provides you with a true retreat from everyday life. We also really enjoyed cooking and eating a great paella outside even if my brother threw away a piece of foie gras by mistake. All in all a memorable experience! Thanks Ryad!

Modern Moroccan Luxury!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The house is well furnished with a beautiful indoor/outdoor living area. What is cool about the place is that it is NOT your ordinary Palm Springs area drab stucco 80's house. Ryad the owner was very helpful with understanding the accommodations, and explaining the nearby dining and grocery options. The kitchen is fully stocked and is a gourmet's hangout. Just bring your ingredients and your knife skills to prepare great meals. The outdoor gardens in the front and in the back are expertly maintained. The pool and spa illuminate to various colors at night creating vivid display. Also, the spa heats up in 15 minutes. I recommend this place for families and people with experienced world taste.

Fantastic stay in a fabulous property

  • 5 out of 5
Where do we begin? First, we agree with the positive comments from other reviews. Ryad was so helpful from the very first time we communicated. Nothing was left to chance. His detailed instructions and assistance helped us enjoy all the features of the house.

Coming from Ontario (Canada) to sunny California has been a treat. The desert sand and heat have been awesome, especially with the pool. We truly enjoyed the music throughout the house, including the pool area. We took the Tram tour to the top of the mountain and went to the Living Desert. Both were well worth it, as recommended by Ryad.

This beautiful house has made our stay very enjoyable. The description and pictures you see are what you get. The house is very clean and well maintained. It is a very nice feeling to come in and immediately feel at home. The house has great amenities and very comfortable beds. We spent a lot of time in the beautiful (warm) pool and listened to the music all week. We also used the brand new BBQ almost every single night.

We are sad to leave. Ryad, your home is beautiful and thank you for making our first trip to California a very memorable one. We do not hesitate recommending this property to anybody who may be interested; it is truly a 5 star property.

Michel, Laura and the kids.

Absolutely loved our stay at Dar-Sabrina.

  • 5 out of 5
The property is clean, comfortable, and has all the amenities you need. Can't beat having a private pool to lounge at all day too! Love the open plan kitchen. Rooms get nice and dark so you can sleep in. It was just perfect... I wanted to stay longer. I would highly recommend this property. I was a seamless experience from start to finish.
