Absolutely love this place. and so did my dog. What a great location about a mile above Cathedral City in the Cove. A quiet oasis that seems far away, and yet is in the center of everything. The Cove location is easily and quickly accessible to, not only Palm Springs and Cathedral City, but also Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and points east. The house was immaculate and fully stocked with everything needed, just add to food and drink -- (including steaks to prepare on the awesome grille in the fabulous back yard). Paid a little extra to heat the pool - and what a joy!!! I was there by myself - working vacation, but had the extra bedroom available to invite friends out to visit. I would definitely do this place again!

Thank you for your kind review! We're delighted you and your dog loved your Palm Springs oasis and we can't wait for your next return!

What a pool!

5 of 5

Cool place, clean, shades of mid-century Palm Springs...well decorated and appointed. Very comfortable. The backyard with an awesome pool, spa, fire pit, and grill has a great view of the mountains. It was the perfect place to unwind on the comfortable lounge chairs. We actually spent many days just hanging out poolside. But, there's so much to do close by, including awesome trails and opportunities to discover the desert's natural beauty. I highly recommend this gorgeous house and setting!

What a wonderful retreat from the cold and crazy. Landing in the desert and driving up hill to this wonderful oasis, I could feel the serenity already. This home was comfortable and easily accessible to the entire Coachella Valley. Just a mile above downtown Cathedral City and only minutes to Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage or Palm Desert, the location is prime. There are many hiking trails at the top of the cove with stunning vistas and amazingly beautiful flora and Fauna. The backyard of this home is extremely private and features a gorgeous pool and spa. The gas grille and fire pit became much used amenities for us. We had friends over for several dinners and ate fresh grilled food out on the covered patio, and played pool afterwards. But i have to say my favorite part of the backyard was the absolutely stunning night sky - we often sat out on the lounge chairs at night with a drink and stared at the infinite stars. We had to work remotely for a couple weeks and were pleased with the wifi and internet connections. The two bedrooms and two baths of this home were perfect for us. This home checked all the right boxes.
