Description from owner

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. This property is continually updated and nothing is over a couple years old!! Please e-mail for any other information

“Really cute, cozy home!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2014

We were coming to Cathedral City for a wedding in June and really wanted to bring our dog for the weekend. I stumbled across this home and we couldn't have been happier. Stephanie was very accommodating, responsive, and just simply kind. The house is very well kept, with small touches that made our weekend really enjoyable. The kitchen had everything (from a toaster to cutting board to wine opener) and bikes were available in the garage. I think they even had floaties in the garage to enjoy the pool but we brought our own. Our dog loved being able to explore the backyard, which is completely fenced. The pool is smaller, but perfect size for the two of us. It was 100+ the weekend we visited and thankfully the AC worked great. We truly hope to return again.

“Well equipped, comfortable, awesome backyard!”

We really enjoyed ourselves at this desert rental! Perfect place for a weekend getaway or extended stay. It's fully stocked with everything and anything you could possibly need,centrally located and in a quiet neighborhood. The neighborhood park was a plus for the kids. The backyard is very nicely landscaped and the pool & spa were great! The owner responded to all our questions in a timely manner, she was very accomodating and flexible. We thoroughly enjoyed our family weekend getaway at this desert casa. The pictures really don't do the place justice.

This place was 5 stars from beginning to end. Beginning with the owner Stephanie who is quick to respond to email questions, directions, instructions, etc. It's always so nice to have someone respond promptly. This home is well equipped with everything you'll need for your vacation get-a-way! Perfect for a couple. The best part about this place is that you will have your own private swimming pool and jacuzzi. We were in the pool every day, and in the jacuzzi in the evening hours. Serenity was all around us which included the birds singing during the day! You will not be disappointed! We had a blast and hopefully will be back soon! Thak you, Stephanie!

This place is really amazing! We came for a weekend getaway and this house had everything we needed to enjoy out time there. The pictures don't do it justice! It's beautiful. Lots of custom work and decorations. Our dog loved running around in the huge backyard while we lounged by the pool. We will definately be back in the future!

Stephanie and Greg, Thanks so much for a really comfortable home to spend our 2 months in the desert. We enjoyed the hot tub alot and made good use of the orange trees. It certainly was great not being in Illiniois!

Greg--good luck with the solar panels, really hope it helps with the utility bills.

Really great 2 weeks---Thank-you.

The house was perfect--the kitchen, great--pool & spa--fantastic!

Total cooperation re weather. Only 2 days overcast. Tied, I'm sure, to the so cal fires, smoke and ash did not make it up here!

We picked the best time of the year and escaped really bad air back home in SD.

Michael, our lab, had a great vacation, also. He's a real desert dog! Loved the yard.

You'll be seeing us again.

Thank you for opening your home to us and for the thoughtful welcome basket. your too kind. Bruce and i had a wonderful anniversary weekend. thank you for all the little touches that makes your home so peaceful and enjoyable. The bacfk yard is a sanctuary and we spent a great deal of our stay just watching the hummingbirds and butterflies landing on the numerous flowering plants. The gazebo and jacuzzi were the icing on the cake. Thank you agian, your both very gracious hosts!

It was like our own personal resort and spa! The house has everything we need and want. Our dogs loved the backyard...there's so much to explore. We loved watching the hummingbirds, large bumble bees and so many birds in the cool earl mornings. Swimming in the evenings was perfect (too hot during the day!). Exploring Palm Springs, Indio and all the towns was easy and conveniet from here. The village fest on Thursday in Palm Springs was alot of fun. The locals are very nice and helpful. I recommend gettting a massage from one of the many "chair massages" siges. The do a great job and cheap! We had a great time

Thanks you for a relaxing and enjoyable time in "Casa Saunders"! The pool was just right of excersising and cooling off with the desert temps. Will do an encore visit in the near future.

Thanks you so much for your incredible hospitality! We loved your home..the pool, the kitchen....everything. It was funny to watch She-Ra's reaction to all the new sounds in the backyard and her barking at us and running around the edge of the pool while we swam. She also LOVED the tile floors throught out the house to cool off on! the house was immaculate and very open. We will recommend you to others and will come back again sometime soon. Also, thank you for the welcome basket of goodies.
