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!

Wonderful vacation getaway!

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!

Amazing backyard, great house and responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here on a family vacation with 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 4 and it was perfect for us. There was enough room inside the house, but the backyard was best part. It has a huge covered patio with a dinning table (we ate every meal outside) and comfy oversized chairs to relax in. The massive lawn was perfect for the kids to run around on. And the owners were nice enough to put a kid-safety fence around the pool, which meant we didn't have to hover over them every second they were outside. The pool itself was clean and was perfect for relaxing in (it's shallow and not meant for diving).

The house is in a super quiet neighborhood in the foothills close to hiking and biking trails. And the owners were very helpful and responsive. I would stay here again without question.

Park like backyard with your own pool!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our daughters and their family rent a house with a pool in the desert every year. It gives us the intimate setting, as opposed to a hotel with separate rooms, to connect on a more personal level and our own pool that we don't have to share! The owners went out of their way to accommodate a health situation that had us postponing our trip due to an unexpected surgery and recovery time. After that, we were so ready to get away and this house was perfect! We are huge pool lovers and this pool didn't disappoint, add the beautifully kept park like backyard with a pond and other water features and we were in heaven! The patio served as a great lounging area for the evening for relaxing or playing games, which they have a selection of. They have a laundry room and the 3 bedrooms with queen sized beds were perfect for three couples, the 4th bedroom has a twin size which was great for one child or add an air mattress for another! The kitchen was very well stocked with spices, pots, pans, etc and open to the living and dining rooms and the round table in the dining room with a built in lazy susan was great! The location is an easy drive to the movie theater, the Living Desert, Wet & Wild Water Park, grocery stores and lots of restaurants and golf courses! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely come back again!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

The entire place was perfect for our long weekend stay. When we were home we spent the entire time in the backyard because it has plenty of seating in the shade and a BBQ for grilling. It is perfect for kids especially since it has a pool, jacuzzi and a large grassy area. The neighborhood was very quiet and set back from everything. The owner graciously accommodated our request to check in early and check out late. Also, the amount to rent this house for the long weekend was very reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.
