A lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 glorious weeks at the casita. Although this means little house, it's actually quite large for 2 people, and there is also so much outdoor space. I'll try not to repeat what others have praised, because it's all true. Views from this property are amazing. There are various seating options outside, but our favourite was underneath the thatched canopy watching the hummingbirds and Tilapia in the pond. Inside the house is furnished very well. There is no dishwasher, but other large and small kitchen appliances, and washer and dryer, are really good. The pillow-top king size bed was very comfortable. There is a nice large jetted tub in the bathroom, but we always used the jacuzzi outdoors because it was superb. The shower stall is on the small side, but functioned well. Heating and air conditioning also worked well, and were easy to operate. Wi-fi was excellent. 15 minutes away is Desert Hot Springs and Desert Dunes Golf Club, which is a great open course (no houses around.) The owners really care about this property, and Rick was very friendly and kind to us. I would describe this property as: relaxing, quiet, private, comfortable, therapeutic, scenic, star gazing, wonderful. It's on our list for a repeat visit.

heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I have been home for a week now and am soooo missing this bit of Heaven on Earth! This was my second visit and i am already planning my vacation for next year back here. The hosts are so sweet and helpful. The mineral spa outside the back door is so healing. The first time i visited, I had just cracked a bone in my upper arm, and when i got home to the Dr, he was amazed at how well i was doing in that short amount of time. I credit the healing waters. Fabulous! The constant sunshine, the mountain views, so pretty.

Shangri-La

  • 5 of 5

How many stars can a person give this place? It's perfect.

My husband and I wanted a quiet weekend away from the city. Little did we know we would happen upon the dreamiest shangri-la in the desert.

This retreat is close to the freeway (the 10), near grocery stores and restaurants and gas stations -- but being there feels like you're in the middle of nowhere. The house is immaculate. There's a fish pond (with pellets to feed the fish, so fun) where dragonflies, hummingbirds, and ducks visit. There's a cabana, a grassy yard with a fire pit, a hammock, a desert view, internet, a jacuzzi bath tub…And complete silence. The entire 5 acres is completely fenced, so dogs can run free.

The owners live nearby, so if you need anything, they're eager and able to help out. And they're sweet, sweet human beings.

We both came away inspired, refreshed, and grateful. Cannot recommend this place enough. We'll definitely be back!

Perfect get-away, close to everything, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Rick and Carter are the perfect hosts and have done everything to ensure this charming casita will exceed your expectations.

We have been renting on VRBO for almost a decade and this is now our new favorite place. The casita is very nicely decorated, clean, well-maintained and extremely comfortable. It is in a great location - easy to get to both Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park.

The things we loved:

Lots of areas to sit outside

A fire-pit with chairs

Our own private pond where we could feed the fish each morning

A palapa that was the perfect place to relax with morning coffee or after hiking

A hot tub with mineral springs water - no chemicals - the BEST hot tub ever

A well-equipped kitchen with good appliances

Good internet connection, wi-fi and cable - even a stash of videos

Quiet at night and great for sleeping

It is very private but you are close to everything

Rick and Carter - friendly, very helpful, easy to deal with and generally wonderful human beings

We had a great time staying here and would highly recommend this to anyone. Whether you come for a few days or a few months, you will have everything you need and you won't want to leave.

We had a lovely time

Why this casita is a tremendous place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Rick and Carter for the most wonderful two months we have ever spent on a vacation! The casita is peaceful, the acreage is perfect for dogs, and the experience of being in the desert was spectacular. The mineral tub was heaven and the perfectly equipped casita is a great place for lazy days and still close enough to everything the area has to offer. The owners can offer lots of tips and sightseeing ideas. They obviously love the area!

We so enjoyed meeting you and becoming friends..that doesn't happen in most vacation rentals, but who could resist the upbeat, caring and thoughtful people you are!!

We will be back in 279 days..who's counting?..

If you are looking for a memorable experience, look no further than this wonderful place..we have sand in our hearts not just in our shoes.
