Private Home with Resort Backyard

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Why rent a condo and have to share amenities with others when you can have your own private pool, jacuzzi, 2 car garage, washer/dryer and your dog can run free in the large, fenced in backyard for the same price? This very tastefully decorated and comfortable home has 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms and is situated on a 1/4 acre. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living with dining and living areas surounding the pool and patio while enjoying the views of the mountains. Many citrus trees to choose from and an herb garden to add to your cooking.

The home is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood with public tennis courts 2 blocks away and many public golf courses to choose from. There are 2 adult bicycles to use while enjoying your getaway. The kitchen is well stocked with everything a cook would need. There are rafts and pool toys to enjoy in the pool. Dine at night under the stars with the gazebo lite up and solar lights around the paths. Please e-mail for additional photos and information.

This was my first time staying here and we had an amazing experience. Everything was over the top! The pool guy and gardener showed up and were friendly .. We were welcomed with a note and gift basket which is something that isnt done at other homes. Thank for making your home feel like a second home. I would love to go back and stay at desert casa.!

Perfect getaway in Palm Springs

  • 4 of 5

We spent only 4 days at your Desert Casa, but they were wonderful. Coming from Seattle, with no sun, it was wonderful to sit out by the pool in the sun, or watch the stars and the mountain from the patio. The pictures you have on the website dont do enough justice to your beautiful home. The location is convenient to get to downtown Palm Springs or anywhere else for that matter. The house is very private, and having a nice pool and spa 10 steps away was so pampering. The property was clean and well maintained. I've already recommended it to some friends.

I know we will be back. Thank you for sharing your home.

Everything you could want

We are repeat visitors and love this home even more the second time around! We stay in a lot of VRBO homes but have never had hosts who provide more, and more thoughtful amenities! The pool was crystal-clear, the private backyard bursting with fruit and the home was clean, quiet and provided a great nights rest. We really enjoyed the view of the mountains from our poolside lounge-chairs! We highly recommend this home - we'll be back - again!
