About Ryad

We're a family of four (2 girls ages 8 and 5). We live in the Los Angeles area. I work in finance and my wife is an attorney at law.

Our interests include architecture and design, travel, food and wine, books, film, history and culture.

Why Ryad chose California Desert

We fell in love with the Palm Springs area many years ago. This led us to buy a secondary home in the California desert. Dar Sabrina was a total gut remodel. We finished the house update in the fall of 2006. Most furnishings were custom made to our taste and reflect our love of modern and minimalist design and appreciation for unique, handcrafted furniture and accessories from all over the world.

Dar means house in Moroccan. Our first daughter Sabrina was born the same year we began the house remodel. Dar Sabrina means Sabrina’s House.

What makes this house unique

As you drive into the Coachella valley, leaving behind the smog and frenetic pace of Los Angeles, something magical happens. Time slows down. The sunlight gets more vibrant and the sky turns several shades brighter and bluer. All the colors around you become more vivid. The magnificent backdrop of mountains, palm trees and desert vistas takes you in. You feel the soothing and warm air on your skin and in your lungs. You feel peace. You don’t want to leave....ever.

Dar Sabrina is our little oasis, our piece of the desert with its sheltering sky and starry nights.

It is now midnight. Time to go for a dip in the pool.

Lovely Moroccan decor - perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dar Sabrina for a weekend get-away with my girlfriends. It was clean and comfortable, not to mention very charming with it's Moroccan decor. We had a great time. Everything we needed was provided, and we all had a comfortable night's sleep. We enjoyed our days poolside the most. I would definitely recommend this home for long-stays or short weekends, for families or couples. We will be back for sure.

A Terrific Choice

  • 5 of 5

After a month at Dar Sabrina, I am completely comfortable recommending this property for any family looking for a secure, clean, well equipped, well appointed home base in the desert. The pool is large enough and deep enough to actually swim laps or do water exercises, but has a large shallow step if you have little ones who like to sit and play with toys - which are also provided. The towels are plentiful, beds are comfortable, storage is generous, location is convenient, appliances are top notch....

I could go on with more details, but I would be remiss not to mention the outstanding attention by the owner. You can measure his response time in seconds. Truly.

This home is one we hope to re-visit soon.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail of this property has been thought about carefully. The amenities were perfect for our family, and the location allowed us easy access to head into either Palm Springs (pancakes at Cheeky's after an early morning swim at the outdoor lap pool) or Rancho Mirage (dinner at Roy's). We walked through the neighborhood and along a trail in a nearby park as well, with beautiful views of the mountains as backdrop. The owners are amongst the most responsive that I have ever dealt with on any vacation rental. We hope to be back!!
