Make a holiday rental home or villa in Cathedral City, USA your home away from home

Located between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City sits in the Coachella Valley area of southern California. Unlike the name suggests, Cat City (as the locals call it) does not actually have a cathedral, the name instead originating from the ‘Cathedral Canyon’ rock formation to the south of town, which was said to have a cathedral-like appearance. Once a housing area for low-income families, since 1990 Cathedral City has undergone substantial regeneration to become a popular tourist spot and the home to some of the Californian Desert’s best holiday rental villas.

Things to do in Cathedral City, USA

The Californian Desert is huge and diverse, and an increasingly popular holiday destination for a many different types of vacation. Although many people use Cathedral City as a commuter base from which to visit trendy Palm Springs, there are attractions in and around the city itself.

The late 1990’s saw a downtown regeneration programme in Cathedral City, which included the building of an IMAX Movie Theatre complex, the redevelopment of the entire shopping area, creation of a state of the art public library and business investment in the city in the way of more restaurants, cafes and bars.

Cathedral City is also a popular destination for sports lovers, with a number of golf courses being the highlight. These include the 58-par course at Date Palm Country Club, the former home of the Phil Harris Golf Classic. Amateur sports fans can also enjoy Minor League football, basketball and softball in the city, at the Big League Dreams Sports Park.

More family fun options can be found on the outskirts of the city, including the Boomers! Family Fun Park, the Ice Garden Skating Rink and the Mary Pickford Theater – the latter being a small museum dedicated to the famous actress.

Places to visit on holiday in Cathedral City, USA

Palm Springs is just 7miles from Cathedral City, and is the ‘Big Cheese’ of the Californian Desert. Walking, hiking, top shopping and fine dining are some of the highlights of this luxury resort, and a visit here is a must during any holiday in Cathedral City. Completing an almost perfect equilateral triangle with Palm Springs and Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage (7 miles away) has even more golf courses and a number of interesting children’s museums.

Weather in Cathedral City, USA

Unsurprisingly for a desert city, the weather in Cathedral City is hot for most of the year. A reported 360 days of sunshine a year mean summer temperatures that average around 35C, and winter temperatures that can still reach the 30C mark. Rainfall is almost unheard of in the region, and you can consider it hard cheese if you experience any during your stay.

Flights to Cathedral City, USA

Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) is just 5 miles from Cathedral City, though direct flights from the UK can be hard to come across, especially outside of peak season. An alternative option is to fly to the well-serviced Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and get a connecting flight or make the remainder of the journey over land.

My husband, son and I stayed here on July and with three generous sized bedrooms there was plenty of space for us. The master is a generous sized room with a sofa area and private master bathroom The other two bedrooms are large doubles. There is plenty of storage space in all the rooms as they each have mirrored wardrobes The guest bathroom is situated between the two double rooms The living area is a large light and airy space with two comfortable sofas to relax in The kitchen has absolutely everything that you would need while you are staying there Outside is a large solar heated pool that we practically lived in that's when we weren't relaxing at the six seater table or lounging in the hammock ( this was amazingly comfortable I fell asleep on it a few times ) There is also a separate jacuzzi area barbecue and fire pit (which in July we had no use for it ) Facing the house is two loungers for those who want to lie and soak up the sun. Now I've given a very brief description of the house I would like to tell everyone about why you should rent this house First off the owners are amazing they are there for everything you need or want they answered any questions that I had prior to renting and while in the house they were only a phone call away if we needed them To beat that the next door neighbour Kathy is also on hand for anything. She is one amazing lady and we called her a few times for I hate to say it, stupid things for example the first day we couldn't turn the showers on ( we are not used to USA style showers) and she took it all in her stride Many thanks to Kathy for all your help while we stayed here To everyone who is reading this don't just read our review book this property yourself and you will see how wonderful it is. Oh and did I say how close and convenient it was for Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Desert and many other places Thanks to Karina and Floyd for allowing us to spend our vacation in your fabulous home
