The livingroom has direct access to the pool and has a 55 inch HDTV with a DVD player, Bose Sounds system, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and every channel you can imagine!

A gourmet 'cooks kitchen' is yet another showcase of the home. It overlooks the pool and greatroom so you can socialize with your guests while you cook.

Beautiful home and central location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home. Very clean. Great sitting area near the pool. Had everything we needed for a relaxing week. Located in a quiet gated community. The owner was responsive and helpful. Great central location to the various activities Palm Springs has to offer.

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house!! We came down for a girls weekend and the house was just as it was presented online We loved our stay. It was well stocked with the basics. The kitchen had everything you would need to make any type of meal. The owener was a pleasure to work with when needed and would reply to all Email. Excellent outdoor space as it felt like we were all alone. We paid to heat the pool and it was well worth it. The house is located in a small gated community but was easily accessed. We would definitely book again!!!

Perfect home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing--beautifully decorated, very clean, super soft linens and towels, a well-supplied kitchen, and all the fireplaces!!! The pool and hot tub were just the right size and fires on the patio made for relaxing evenings. Can't wait to come back!

Absolutely incredible home!

  • 4 of 5

Shared this beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bath home with 2 other couples. Very open, roomy and well appointed! Fabulous kitchen well stocked with dishes. cooking equipment, staples and condiments!

House is in a small gated circle in Cathedral city. Beautiful patio w/outdoor gas fireplace, grill, fridge and sink as well as pool and spa.

Huge master bath that included numerous shampoos,soaps and other toiletries.

House was spotless and welcoming!

The only reason I did not give this house a 5: 2 small concerns- 1) we could not “walk” out of the gated community without a remote to open the gate as the code given to Selena by the HOA did not work- perhaps the machine was not working but it should have had a sign or something- made things a little inconvenient as we had runners and walkers in our group and we could not all take the remotes to control the gate. 2) outdoor patio has fireplace was not working. We did phone and ask as the weather cooled down at night but the issue was not resolved. Hopefully it was addressed before the next renter arrived.

All in all- it was a great experience in a beautiful home and we would definitely return😊

A very relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Palm Springs area and we realized we had picked a winner as soon as we walked through the front door. This is a newer house where pride of ownership is evident throughout. The interior of this impressive house is accurately described in other reviews and we will only add that the living areas are larger than they seem to be in the photos.

The back yard was the highlight of our trip offering privacy, a smaller pool (quick to heat up), hot tub, a covered outside seating area with an overhead fan and a choice of sun or shade throughout the day. During the warm evenings we were able to sit outside and read until quite late without being chased indoors by insects. We rarely left the property as this was easily the most relaxing vacation we have ever had.

One item we noticed that has not come up in previous reviews is that this property is not surrounded by other houses within the subdivision but backs onto an elementary school playground. We are the grandparents of an elementary school child and listening to the occasional sounds from the youngsters on the other side of the wall enjoying their play during their recess/lunch breaks put a smile on our faces.

Selene, the owner was superb. Her professionalism and ability to display a perfect setting for us will make it difficult for us to not rent here again.

Why Selene chose Cathedral City

Everyone loves our house! It's really a special place. From the velvet hangers to down comforters to real silverware... this isn't your typical rental home. Please reads our reviews.
