My family and I had a wonderful time at this amazing property. We were attending a wedding in Palm Springs but it was also a chance for my family to get together as we live all over the world. My six year old granddaughter had great fun with her mom dad uncles and grandad in the swimming pool. I am not usually that keen on swimming but I used the pool almost everyday. The outdoor space is wonderful and as the weather was hot we spent most of our time out there. The BBQ being so close to the patio is great as my son in law cooked for us and he was right there to share in the great family time we had. The view from the patio and pool area is amazing! The view of the mountains is breathtaking and gives a sense of open space to the property. The house itself is great - very comfortable and everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Very clear instructions to operate everything. There are lots of staples available on a use and replace basis which is great as you don't have to buy stuff that you might only use once and as we were traveling from overseas this was a real plus. Walter was a great host and we had to call him once about something and he could not have been more helpful and pleasant. I would highly recommend this property as a really comfortable special place to stay.

Lovely, comfortable, spacious home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had SO MUCH FUN at Walter's house over New Year's holiday. I stayed there with my husband and child, and my sister and her family. Between the two of us we had a 1, 2, and 4 year old at the house, and this place was perfect for our needs. You will see on the listing that it says "not good for kids," and the reason Walter has this listed is because the pool is NOT fenced in, which could be a hazard with small children. But, because our children are so young they are never out of our site, we felt more than comfortable staying here. The door leading to the patio/pool locks so we felt safe that way as well We paid $25 a day to have the pool and spa heated, which was well worth it since Palm Springs nights can get chilly. We all spent hours playing and splashing in the pool and spa, and using the tremendous lawn to play bocce ball, turn cartwheels, and play "picnic" to eat snacks. The 4 year old was fascinated by the koi pond too.

This house is in a quiet neighborhood in Cathedral City, nice view of the mountains in the day and the stars at night. It's not really in walking distance to restaurants, but we were a 5 minute drive from a shopping center with Target and Starbucks, and just a few more minutes from Trader Joes. If you're homebodies like us and just wanted to unplug and relax, this place is for you! Walter is very responsive and helpful, and easy to get a hold of. He has thoughtfully stocked the house with staples and instructions, and makes sure you will be comfortable. Would stay here again in a heartbeat - take me back to the desert!

We loved being able to stay in this place with the lovely grounds and heated pool! We wish we could have stayed longer! Walter was great to work with and the instructions were very clear in the provided handbook. We feel very lucky to have found it and were very pleased with everything!
