And don't let that nasty desert wind ruin your vacation. 'Indigo Dreams' is on a lovely quiet block in a nice, Southern neighborhood called Cathedral City Cove. It's protected by a beautiful Cove of mountains making it one of the quietest, least windy, most pleasant neighborhoods in the whole desert. Yet it's less than a mile to: Trader Joe's, the new Olympic Ice Skating Rink, a theater complex including an IMAX, and several very good restaurants (including La Tablita, Cello's, and the highly acclaimed Dish). Centrally located: 7 miles to downtown Palm Springs, and 6 miles the other way to The River at Rancho Mirage.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome ($75 fee/per dog). Monthly rentals pay for actual gas and electric utility usage.

Why Joe chose Palm Springs
We first discovered the Cathedral City Cove neighborhood almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we rented dozens of vacation homes in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage, and we found that homes in 'The Cove' area of Cathedral City had much bigger lots with better views. Also, regular Palm Springs visitors know that the desert wind can be very bad at times. North Palm Springs is the windiest area, but sometimes the wind even spreads to Central & South Palm Springs. Protected by a circle of the Santa Rosa Mountains to the South, and giant San Jacinto Mountain to the West, 'The Cove' has one of the least windy micro-climates in the entire desert. We are only 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs on one side and 10 minutes to Rancho Mirage's The River or El Paseo's fine shopping and galleries on the other side. Best of all, good desert hikes are walking distance all around our neighborhood!
