AN ARCHITECTURAL TREASURE

French doors all along the back of the living areas open to a stunning poolside paradise.

"what a lovely surprise right in the heart of warm sands! spacious bedrooms and common areas with a kitchen fit for a master chef. the house and grounds are private and quiet and the backyard is a lush, verdant oasis. we'll definitely be back!"
"We had a wonderful time with family it this very private home. We will be back!"
"We felt like we are in the English countryside. Really enjoyed our time there. Peaceful and relaxing."
"The English Cottage was a wonderful retreat for our family who was looking for a change of scenery while complying with social distancing during these challenging times we all find ourselves in. The home while older, is in great condition and was very clean upon arrival. It offers full privacy as the grounds are fully enclosed - we appreciated that. The large bedrooms are spacious with their own full bathroom, all offer privacy. The living areas where all large enough that not one of us ever felt like we were crowding each other. The wonderful game room with pool table, piano and other fun games was the place our family spent most of our time when we wanted a break from outside heat. The kitchen was great and had most of the appliances, tools needed - the griddle not was operable on our visit which was a shame (our son in law is a chef and he was looking forward to use) but we worked around. The outside space is large and has tons of sitting areas to lounge in. The only drawback (and its a minor one) was pool definitely appears larger in pics, would not recommend more than 6 adults at one time and only for lounging unless you are the only one in it, in which case then you can swim. Aside from that, we had a wonderful relaxing week and truly enjoyed this unique and special home. Thanks again Acme!"
"Really great experience with this unique house. We all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. Outdoor bar & pool bathroom was perfect. Pool is smaller than a lot of newer pools but it was plenty big for 6 adults. House had everything we needed, kitchen is fully stocked. Great place, I’d stay here again anytime!"
Charming place with excellent bedrooms
"Beautiful home with large bedrooms and individual baths. Kitchen could use some updating, and could have more utensils, but overall very good. Pool is not big. Liked outdoor seating area and pool table. "
Fantasy Family Getaway
"Our family loved this beautiful, unique, and extremely spacious home. Our 2 daughters loved picking their own rooms, and they spent hours in the pool. The kitchen has an amazing oven range and literally every type of gadget and tool needed to make gourmet meals, and every nook was thoughtfully designed so that no matter where you went, it was a vacation within a vacation! The sheets and towels were soft and luxurious, and what a bonus to have use of a fully equipped laundry room! (Note: Bring mosquito repellent - they really come out as the sun goes down.) While there were just 4 of us on this family vacation, I could see coming back with another family or two or hosting a small event. We look forward to returning! "
Would stay again!

English Cottage ??
"You'll feel like you'e home the minute you step into this beautiful property. Old work charm with all of the modern comforts. A chef's kitchen that anyone would envy, beautifully appointed bedrooms, spacious living and dining rooms, meticulously landscaped backyard and pool area, complete with an outside bar and patio, and don't forget to check out the billiard room. Convenient to downtown as well as the airport. You'll want to return again and again (I know I do!)."
"this was an amazing house to stay at. We had a gathering of three sisters and three girl cousins who stayed at this house. The amenities were all exceptionally terrific from the privacy of the bedrooms with their own bathroom facilities to the gourmet kitchen. The view was spectacular from the backyard to the relaxing pool and outside fire pit. I would highly recommend a stay at this house. The downtown area had a lot to see and a lot of nice restaurants. I would definitely return to stay at this house again!!"
English Cottage Oasis in the Desert
"This Is such a charming place, both inside and out. It's very spacious and so very comfortable for a large group. But there are so many cozy little areas that you can find your own space inside this house. The backyard is lovely with a nice pool and garden. The large backyard also has a beautiful Mountain View It's the perfect house for entertaining. It's a great location near shopping and restaurants We loved it and didn't want to leave. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. I just can't say enough good things about this fabulous house."
Palm Springs meets English Countryside
"Just absolutely loved our stay at this English Cottage with a desert flair. From the chefs kitchen (my daughter is a chef so she was in heaven), to the game room, to the huge backyard it was heaven! The bedrooms were very large, each with its own bathroom, TV and USB port. The main gathering area was spacious yet cozy. All in all a great experience. This home will be our go to on our semi-annual trips to Palm Springs. "
"Have stayed here several times while in Palm Springs. A must see! Home is very nicely kept and includes everything we needed. Setting couldn't be any better with the views of the mountains and palm trees. Wait until evening and the property has an entirely different feel to it. Love the lights on the palm trees at night. House is large enough for a family gathering or large group of friends. An oasis in Palm Springs. Will definitely be back next time we're in the area. "
"Staying there reminded me of walking into "Once upon a time in Hollywood." Spacious home with privacy and spectacular views, a fabulous gourmet kitchen, many group gathering areas, a refreshing inground pool, and access to downtown shopping, great restaurants, and that fabulous California weather. This is a place to return to every year!"
Cozy & Peaceful
"My family and I loved this place with its many nooks and crannies in which to unwind and curl up with a book, or cool off in the pool and watch the beautiful desert sunsets. Private sitting areas and bedrooms were large yet cozy and made this the perfect peaceful get-away to recharge. While enjoying the fire pit and stunning view and sipping a drink made at the outdoor bar, we were mesmerized by the beauty of nature right in front of us, including getting lost watching a hummingbird nest's daily activity on the the back patio. We can't wait to come back. "
"When my friends and I first arrived for our Stagecoach visit, we were completely awe struck when we laid eyes upon where we were about to call home for a week, even more beautiful than the photos. Truly, it felt like we stepped into a Disney-themed English Cottage Land or a Hallmark movie set where everything is magically charming. Stagecoach was much closer than we thought and it was nice to return to this cottage oasis each night. At times we left our spacious dream kitchen and ventured out In the area to the abundance of great restaurants; we also found a fun-filled street Fair on Thursday night where we strolled among craft booths and music and were captivated by a local talented artist creating more magic for us. We will definitely return again and again. "
"WOW!! This is the ideal place for anyone who is seeking a private and beautiful setting. The Mountain Views with the most beautiful palm trees are stunning!!. Accommodations are so private , warm and inviting. The kitchen and dining are perfect for entertaining. This home would be awesome for entertaining any event!!!! We will be back:))))"
An English Experience
"This home has it all - a step back in time, private yet close to it all. We had five women in our group and stayed as a family getaway. The home provided privacy yet great spaces in the beautiful backyard, kitchen, dining, living, and recreation areas. The beds were very luxurious and comfortable. Everything was provided in the home to make this a getaway treasure. I would definitely stay here again! This home is everything shown in the pictures and more!!"
Views, views, views! And might I say, charming?!
"I loved the view from the backyard, mountain, palm trees, and a crystal blue pool. This place was is so private. Even the rooms are nice and separated from one another. Comfortable beds and large bathrooms! The common area is ideal for large groups to enjoy one another with a seat for everyone. This place would actually be ideal for a small wedding with the backyard set up. Overall, this place is like jumping across the pond to England without the long flight ;) Location was walkable to food and downtown. We were very comfortable here with our small family. "
