About Sam

Vince is the owner and Sam manages the property. We moved from PA in 2009 and love the weather here. It is like having a Spring from November to April. The dry air helps people with joint and muscular issues. We like it here because we do not have to go far for anything. Pretty much everything we need is within walking distance or a short commute to Palm Springs or Palm Desert. We purchased the place because Sam had a vision for the property, especially the Cottage which the Spanish speaking people call Casita. We like it here because it is in a culdesac and there is little traffic. Cathedral City is a small city with a town feel. Very low crime rate here, very safe. There is always something to do here in what we call 'The Desert'.

Sam purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Sam chose California Desert

It is peaceful and quiet here, except for an occasional party on Friday or Saturday nights. But as a rule it's pretty peaceful and serene, especially since it is a small city. We like the security wall that surrounds us, and it has proven to be a very safe place to live. We did a lot of improvements on the property, especially the Casita which was completely remodeled in 2014. There is lots of land to spread out on, a Gazebo to sit in on those beautiful Spring days. We love our fruit trees that bare plenty of fruit for picking and eating. We have Grapefruit trees, tangerines and key lime Trees. Fruit is pesticide free.

What makes this cottage unique

Small City/Town, quiet Cul-de-sac neighborhood. Much to do. Close to Sporting Events and Coachella Fest Activities. Clean, tidy exterior and interior. Privacy assured!

It had good and bad thing's.

  • 3 of 5

Sam and Vince are great guy's. We stayed for 3 month's. The unit had most of the thing's that you would need. There was a hot plate for cooking and as we don't eat out very much at all because of health reasons a stove would have made cooking much faster. If you like to BBQ you should bring one. The area is about 15 to 30 minutes to most places you would like to go to. We found a really great gym just down the street about 2 miles called In-Shape. ... it had everything. ... heated pool and hot tub. There are alot of barking dog's in the neighborhood. They also own a small dog but the messes were never cleaned up and this caused flies once it got warmer.

Lovely casita, private, nicely furnished, all the basics you need and great owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a modest size casita, well furnished, lots of privacy, comfortable, all the basic.... comfortable bed, kitchenette, A/C, and perfect for a couple on a budget who doesn't want to spend their days sitting inside but wants a comfortable place to come home to after playing tourist, hiking in the desert and enjoying the Palm Springs area.

The kitchenette allowed us the freedom to not have to go to restaurants for all our meals. We cooked breakfast, made lunches and even made some full course dinners with the convection oven and the burners.

We found it met our needs perfectly and have no reservations recommending it.

Very comfortable for two. We were there for a full month.
