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 Cathedral City

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.

Wonderful stay in Cathedral City

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from 11 days at Dar Sabrina. We enjoyed every minute of it! Ryad is excellent to communicate with and highly recommended if you are looking for a place in the area. The house is very clean, comfortable and surprisingly, well set up to accommodate children and families. Book it, you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful, clean, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Palm Springs area 2/3 times a year for the last 6 years and this is the first time I've written a review. This property deserves the best review ever!!!!! From the moment of booking Dar Sabrina to arrival the owner was in contact and answered our many questions. Once we arrived it was exactly as advertised! It was clean, quiet, beautifully designed and in a great location. I cannot say enough good things about this property and the owner we will booking again!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Dar Sabrina! We booked for a business trip so while I was working, my family was lounging in the pool or out exploring hiking trails. The house was cozy and we felt right at home. They had everything you could possibly need. There was even a gift basket when we arrived! We loved relaxing in the hot tub at night. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
