We are Canadians living in the Vancouver, British Columbia area and have recently retired.

TERRY VAN DER LEEST purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why TERRY VAN DER LEEST chose Cathedral City

For many, many years we vacationed in the Palm Springs area and finally got the opportunity to purchase our own place about 8 years ago. We wanted it to be a true oasis for us so we hired a pool consultant and landscaper to turn our backyard into a resort-like setting which is truly the outstanding feature of our home.

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our mom's, birthday trip and 8 girls ranging from 18 - 80 stayed here for a week.

We wished we could stay longer.!

The home was nicer than the pictures ( if you can believe that)!

Every thing you needed was there.

The neighborhood was quiet and the back yard was something out of a magazine.

Terry was quick to respond to any inquires we had.

This was the first time to the Palm Springs area for all of us so we really appreciated the binder with all the local information in it.

We will definitely be back to this beautiful home away from home!

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this fab place and found it to be everything that the website and pictures described AND more. Our expectations were high and we had taken a lot of time to scour the listings to be sure to get a good rental for our vacation and this property really was even better than expected. I have to thank the owners for being so responsive when we had a question and for the amazing level of organization evident in the home itself (which is very well appointed) and in the binder that details every aspect of the home/area that you might have questions about. We appreciated the security system and garage for our car. The neighbors are super nice and were friendly when we saw them and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are definitely going to stay for 2 weeks next year to do more exploring and dining and we have agreed that booking this exact property is a MUST. Thank you very much for sharing your lovely space with us.

A great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic property, it has everything a family could need for a vacation. The house is spacious and can easily accommodate 2 families if needed.

The pool, hot tub and backyard are great for relaxing in the sun or the shade. The backyard is a little exposed, so it can be windy and cool at times but we loved it for the most part.

The owners are incredibly well organized, everything is labelled, they have lots of spare pool toys and spare kitchen supplies if you forget to buy something. The owners were great in their communication with us, very quick to respond to questions from us, providing us information and generally willing to help.

We highly recommend this property and intend to come back next year.

A Wonderful Oasis of Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this property and it was absolutely delightful. The home exuded a warmth and hospitality that was sustained during our stay. The amenities were outstanding and I cannot commend the owners enough for being so organized ! This property is a model what someone renting a place should aspire to.

What a perfect property! Immaculate, comfortable, and well equipped with all the amenities of a home. The pool and spa area are amazing, truly an oasis! We spent every morning enjoying our coffee poolside. The lovely pool lights and waterfall set the ambiance for relaxing evenings. We found that the condo was centrally located; easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. As first time VRBO renters, Terry made our stay trouble-free, she is incredibly organized and informative. Our stay was fantastic, we will never go back to a hotel. Can’t wait to come back!!
