About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Next To Mountains, Large Outdoor Area, Pool, BBQ ++

This classic 1965 Mid-Century Ranch-style home has everything you'll need to unwind. The spacious 1,850 Sq ft floor plan with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths easily accommodates 6 or more without feeling cramped. The home is ideal for a special family retreat, a get-a-way weekend with friends, or a quiet, romantic weekend for two- The Cove House suits any group looking to get away from it all and relax. Stay in and soak up the sun, float in the salt water pool, take in a Novel (or write one), or play bocce & badminton in the big back yard with stellar mountain views. Take advantage of the outdoors and dine al fresco everyday or have a formal dinner party inside with seating for 10 in the bright and airy dining room off the kitchen. The days go fast with so many things to do on site, yet you're only minutes from all that the Palm Springs area has to offer. Golf, cycling, hiking, shopping, restaurants, museums and tours to name a few.

Inside, the retro Mid-Century bar lounge area greets guests as they enter. Stock it and play bartender as your friends enter the home for your next gathering. The living room is an intimate spot for everyone to gather around the gas fireplace, while spinning classic LP’s on vintage Magnavox record player or simply watching movies (or Sunday football games) on the 50" TV. The well- equipped kitchen has everything you'll need to cook a feast and more. The dining room is off the kitchen with another slider straight out to the BBQ grill and the pool area.

All the bedrooms are located off the main hallway with the Master bedroom at the end. It has a very comfortable king-sized bed, en-suite bathroom, tons of closet space and smart TV. All bedrooms have sliding doors straight out to the pool, new mattresses and quality linens.

Bluetooth wireless speaker goes wherever the group goes... by the pool, dinner music while you're cooking/eating.

PLENTY of outdoor seating - eat outside by candlelight, under outdoor fans while gazing at the stars/mountains/moon. Or grab your glass of wine and sit in one of several seating vignettes as you relax and unwind in your large, outdoor magical oasis.

About Jeanine Burke & Michi Suzuki

We are Michi & Jeanine, and we have an 11-year old daughter. We live in Seattle and due to the fact that Seattle is often gray and rains a lot, we started heading to Palm Springs many, many years ago for warmth and sunshine. We all fell in love with the desert, the architecture, the relaxing nature and all that the Coachella Valley has to offer. After so many annual trips down south, we decided to buy a vacation home where we could share with renters and use for our own family use. We love our new home and we hope you all will enjoy it, too. Cheers!

Why Jeanine Burke & Michi Suzuki chose Cathedral City Cove

See above and below-

What makes this house unique

This home belonged to a woman in her 80's that took such good care of it and lived in it for 30+ years. We fell in love with it the minute we saw it based on it's location (right next to the mountains, hence the stellar mountain views), how peaceful it is, the large saline pool and the size of the lot blew our minds. We immediately saw vision and knew this was our home.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Jeanine and Michi's home. The back yard and pool are truly a peaceful oasis tucked away in the "cove" surrounded by beautiful mountaintops. The pool was very clean and just right for the 95 degree weather we enjoyed during our stay. The area has ample comfortable furniture and tables for outside dining. Inside the home is very clean, tastefully decorated with comfortable bedding and furniture. The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked with all necessary utensils, plates, etc. I highly recommend this home for your desert stay.

Wonderful setting for a week with friends!

  • 5 of 5

The six of us spent our annual week of friendship and golf at this wonderful home. The owners were most responsive and helpful as we planned our trip. Upon arrival, we were pleased to find a very comfortable and well appointed home for us to enjoy for the week. The kitchen was very well equipped, the outdoor space was spectacular, the bedrooms were comfortable, and the attention to detail was evident in every room. It was truly a peaceful desert oasis and we enjoyed every minute we were there!

Fabulous home from home with the added bonus of a huge pool!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six and find it difficult to find a home from home that works for us all. The Cove house was as good if not better than the pictures presented! It's almost as if there are no neighbors, and the views - just stunning! So much outdoor space too with something for everyone. The house is tastefully mid century and so bright and airy. The hosts were fantastic to deal with from the day we decided to book our vacation. We hope to revisit again

Move along, nothing to see here! :-)

  • 5 of 5

Okay, sooo...I've been reluctant to write a review for this place because the more people who know how AMAZING THIS PROPERTY IS, the less likely I will be to book my desired dates to return AGAIN and AGAIN. The house is perfectly located close to literally everything you could want or need, but at the same time feels secluded and very private. The interior is immaculate - bright and spacious with a fun, eclectic, tasteful vibe. The kitchen is large, with multiple ovens and everything/anything you could possibly need. New, fresh bedding and pristine bathrooms. The pool (salt water!) is the heart of a very large, private, multi-use backyard. There are many cozy, comfortable sitting areas and nooks that make it perfect for both socializing and solitude. The grill and outdoor seating made it possible for us to cook and eat nearly all of our meals out by the pool. The surrounding mountains and views are beautiful and ever changing with the light, along with a background soundtrack of all that the desert wildlife has to offer. True perfection.

You'll never want to leave!!

*Special shout out to the owners who are a class act and total sweethearts. Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with the world.

Relaxing Stay in a Stylish Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this tastefully furnished and decorated gem. There was plenty of room for four adults and three children. We much enjoyed the generous pool and backyard. The owners went to great length to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Everything was clearly labeled, the fridge and cabinets were stocked, and there were plenty of outdoor games to while away the time. The property is adjacent to the desert, which makes it quiet and easy to go on walks. Restaurants and shopping are just a few minutes away by car. My family and I would stay at this property again in a heartbeat.
