Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs - Indigo Dreams

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

'Indigo Dreams' is the perfect choice for your indoor/outdoor Palm Springs-area vacation. This popular vacation home sits on a securely walled 1/3 acre lot on a well-cared-for, quiet, and wind-free block in a safe, desirable Southern desert neighborhood called Cathedral City Cove.

This home has been completely remodeled to high standards. It's modern style decor is complemented by thoughtful details that add convenience and comfort, making your stay both special and memorable. The large lot ensures privacy, ample sun and strategic shade, any time of year. The backyard and every room in the house offer nice views of the surrounding mountains from Mt. San Jacinto to the West, Joshua Tree National Monument in the North, and the Santa Rosa Mountains to the South.

There are 7 comfortably padded chaise lounges, pool floats and toys, and a stainless steel gas bbq with all the grilling accessories you might want - we even stock cedar planks for your grilled salmon. Relax in the outdoor living room and have your choice of eating inside or at one of two outdoor dining areas - one in the shade with overhead fan and the other drenched under sun and stars. During the day, large market umbrellas create strategic shade where wanted.

While you soak in the hot spa and play in the refreshing pool, rest assured that the saline-based, non-chlorine water will be gentle on your skin, hair and eyes - and on the environment. (Please refer to the 'Rates' section for info about the Optional Pool Heating Fee.) Don't forget to come prepared to tell stories as you get cozy around the color-lit pool and the natural gas fire pit at night.

The home is tastefully furnished in a modern, contemporary style with polished concrete floors throughout, soaring cathedral ceilings in the great room with HDTV TV and modern glass fireplace, and an open, indoor/outdoor floor plan that will make you happy. The award-winning remodeled and well-stocked gourmet kitchen will please your chef. Indigo Dreams is TechSmart: Nest thermostat, iHome in each room, computerized pool/spa controls can be accessed through your smart phone, DVD/BluRay/streaming movies to the TVs, reliable high speed wireless internet throughout, and even a printer for your use.

Four bedrooms (K, Q, Q, F) with luxurious, quality mattresses and high thread count linens will help you get a good nights rest.

In the garage you'll find a new, full-sized high efficiency washer/dryer, a loaner bicycle, and a new massage table for your romantic or therapeutic touch. Lots of eco/green features/upgrades make this a fun and interesting, yet guilt-free low-carbon vacation.

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, Trilussa, and Cello's). 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 ($100 fee/per dog). Monthly rentals pay for actual gas and electric utility usage.

If this house is booked we also have a 3BR home in the same great neighborhood: http://www.VRBO.com/300861 and another great 4BR home: http://www.VRBO.com/572406.

Thanks for considering staying at 'Indigo Dreams'!

About Joe

We're Doug and Joe. We feel in love with the Palm Springs Desert Area almost 20 years ago. Doug is a college professor, and Joe is an entrepreneur and certified green building professional.

Joe purchased this house in 1997

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!

It feels like home

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second year renting here, and it really feels like our home away from home. It's a great location in a quiet residential neighborhood, within a short drive of almost anywhere you would want to go in the valley.

We had a small issue with the air conditioning not keeping up with the 100+ temps on our first day. The internet-connected thermostat notified Joe of the issue and he contacted us, quickly arranging to send someone to fix the problem. It turned out that the previous guests had left the swamp cooler on and it was fighting the AC system.

The only negative was having to leave after our two weeks were up :-(
We'll be back!

Beautiful Home in the Desert!

  • 5 out of 5
BOOKING - As a HomeAway "virgin", I had no idea what to expect when it came to booking a property. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the website was super user friendly and the numerous filters allowed me to easily navigate through the properties that met my criteria.

OWNER - From the get go, Joe was awesome to work with! He responded to my online inquiry quickly and was very reasonable to work with. He even reached out to me to let me know that he received another inquiry for the same weekend I was interested in, but wanted to give me the priority since I inquired first. Joe definitely didn't have to do this, but we appreciated it so much! We also requested a late check out pretty last minute, but he was able to accommodate us and wasn't irritated at all with the last minute request (other owners probably would be!).

PROPERTY - I loved this property! The goal of our weekend was to have a relaxing weekend bonding with the family - cooking, drinking and swimming in the pool! This place couldn't have been any more perfect for us. The backyard is beautiful and I don't think the pictures online do it justice. It's spacious, has great views and the salt water pool was fantastic (especially the colored lights at night!). Although we brought a lot of our own utensils and cooking supplies, we really didn't need to. The house has everything you would need cooking wise (including an outdoor grill), pool towels and swimming toys/mats were provided as well as many toiletries. Although we spent majority of our time at the house, we did make one trip to Downtown Palm Springs, which was only about 7 miles away, and we were happy to find that there were several major grocery stores within 1 mile of the house. The house was clean, decor was great and the beds were very comfortable! We had 6 adults and 2 children in our group and every single person loved this house. There was plenty of seating indoors for everyone and there was more space than we needed.

My family and I can't wait to come back!!

Labor Day Weekend!!

  • 5 out of 5
Thanks to Joe for his amazing communication during our stay at his house. The house was perfect for us - plenty of room to mingle, relax, play and eat together in the evenings. The house has games for adults and children. There was plenty to do for all ages at the house. Master bedroom (stunning!) and very comfortable, the kitchen was unbelievable -- every kind of spice and condiment you could think of. Not to mention the outdoor fireplace (stunning!) Our greatest enjoyment was sitting outside at the natural gas fire pit... My family didn’t want to leave!! We ask Joe if we can check out late and he let us;) much appreciated! My kids where really HAPPY!!! and we BBQ again :)
Short drive to grocery, we wanted to go check out Palm Desert while we were there, but the kids didn't want to leave the house -instead we hung out by the pool, soaked up. Joe (the owner) is a very good with communication any problems he will fix it ASAP. Thanks again Joe! We hope to come back and stay.....again and again!!!

Nice getaway

  • 5 out of 5
Had a great time! This place is well maintained & has a lot of nice little amenities!! You can have a quiet & peaceful afternoon but it's also a fun place to turn up the music & party a little. There seems to be plenty of seating if you have a large group. I enjoyed the downloadable app. which controls how to turn on the spa & the light display for the pool. Everything is nicely labeled & the house manual covers everything in great detail so we never had to call & ask how to turn anything on/off. The bed in the master bedroom was SOO comfortable & the shower is cool too. The frosting on the cake was that I got my deposit back the same day I checked out! Joe was a real pleasure to talk to. He is on it! I would definitely come back and refer others!

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 out of 5
This house was a pleasure to stay in! It has everything you need to relax and enjoy hanging out. It is a beautiful home, spacious, quiet setting and clean. We enjoyed the lovely backyard and pool. We originally had planned on doing some outings but instead we enjoyed being in the home so much, we didn't end up leaving it hardly at all. We also brought our dog which was a nice plus. We definitely plan on returning soon!

Location

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Palm Springs International
Nearest Restaurant
0.5 Miles
Cello's Bistro, Trilussa, La Tablita, Picanha
Car: recommended

Our home is located in the desirable Upper Cathedral City Cove neighborhood. We're on a nice one block long street in an area of large view lots - it's quiet, like a cul-de-sac. Who wants to be right on top of their neighbors? This lot is nearly .4 acres in size, letting you stretch out in all directions. The views from the house and beautifully backyard are phenomenal in most any direction you look. In contrast to much of Palm Springs, especially the North section, this neighborhood is known as one of the most wind protected areas in the desert, so those Spring winds won't spoil your tanning session by the pool or your outdoor dining experience. While all the desert attractions are only a few minutes drive away, you can nearly walk to a nice collection of restaurants - casual (e.g., Sunshine Cafe, La Tablita, India Oven) or elegant (e.g., Highly Acclaimed Dish Creative Cuisine, Cello's Bistro, Trilussa). Within a mile there's: Trader Joe',s Desert IMAX, Mary Pickford Multiplex, Desert Ice Castle

Other Activities: Nice desert hikes just a short walk or drive away. Miniature golf and Knott's Soak City are very close. Centrally located only minutes from 3 Downtown areas: Palm Springs, Cathedral City, and Rancho Mirage. For those attending nearby weddings, The Parker Palm Springs and The Cree Estate are only a few minutes away.

Golf: There are over 100 golf courses just a short drive away.
