This property is located on a quite cul-de-sac and offers a very warm home like expereince with amenities such as wi-fi internet service and pool & spa. The owner always adds new amenities each year for guests to enjoy.
A private front courtyard provides a tranquil setting for guests to relax and enjoy some quite time with the sounds of running fountains.
My wife and I attended a weeding in Palm Springs in May 2013. After researching pet-friendly hotels in the area, we decided we would be better off renting a house. Luckily we found the Rock Garden Retreat. I don't really have a bad thing to say. The customer service and response time of Annette (prop mgr) was fantastic. The house itself is gorgeous and perfect for a weekend getaway. Very pet friendly and although we don't have kids, it would be great for a whole family. Amazing tranquil backyard with a small but nice pool and great hot tub. Beautiful side/courtyard to hang out in with benches and nice grass. We are already planning our next trip back to the property! If you are coming in from out of town, or just looking for a weekend getaway out of LA/SD, this is the spot!
What a Fabulous winter we had! Thank you so much, Shahen, for sharing your beautiful home with us. The minute we walked through the front door, we felt like we were home. It has everything we could possibly need and was extremely well stocked, beautifully appointed and filled with personal touches. We could tell that great thought had been put into making Rock Garden Retreat the perfect vacation rental. The southern exposure guarantees sunshine nearly every day. Perfect for the gorgeous pool area or if you prefer shade, you can find that too, in the luscious green area in front, complete with babbling fountains. The kitchen met all of my needs as a gourmet cook, with the added bonus of a walk in pantry. The master suite was HUGE and had an extremely comfortable bed. The guest rooms were great for our visiting family and friends. Perfect location, perfect weather, perfect pool/spa & perfect green area ....Best of all, perfect landlord ! In all of the years we've been snowbirds we have never had such a friendly, accomodating landlord. Needless to say, we have aready signed on the dotted line for January, February and March 2014.
Our second year and the only thing disappointing is that we wont be able to get in next year. Always something new and improved. The front area with grass, walkways and water fountains is a very relaxing place to have the morning coffee and just kick back. It is an ideal home for entertaining guests or just getting away from it all. Always clean and owner is very prompt to return calls or e-mails.
Thanks for letting us use your beautiful home

The house and yard are beautifull
There were problems heating the pool but we got the spa working well.
Very annoying was the gardener showing up BEFORE 8AM on Jan 2, a holiday, with one of those gas leaf blowers making a lot of noise. I thought those things had been outlawed. In fact, I am going to contact the City of Cathedral City to if a bill should be passed to outlaw them.
Let me just start off by saying that this place is really an oasis in the desert! My family and I recently rented this charming house on Labor Day Weekend. This is our 5th stay and I finally had to write a review.
This 3 bedroom 2 bath house is spacious and clean. The rooms are large and the decor makes you feel right at home. The house if fully stocked with everything you need. The best part is the backyard. It has a beautiful lap pool and lush landscaping. It has a bbq (which we used every day), 2 bonfire pits, lounge chairs and seating for large groups, plus an array of water toys for the kids. Every time we go, there is sometime new. This time there was a new front lawn with 2 fountains and a bistro area which was great for breakfast and checking my emails. I can't wait to see what the next additions will be!
We are a Middle Eastern family and we loved the fact that it had coffee cups for our middle eastern coffee and skewers for the bbqing. This place is Middle Easten friendly ;-)
I can't wait for my next trip back to the rock garden retreat!!
During our stay I found the property very clean, very comfortable, and it felt like home. It's an excellent place to relax and forget the outside world for a couple of days. I will strongly recommend it to my friends and relatives to rent this property at any time to get away for a couple of days. It was convenient as well such that it included towels, pool items, amenities and etc.
If you are into learning about Native American history there is the Indian Canyon reservation a few miles away which you can visit. It is a beautiful place where you can have an easy hike along a meandering stream underneath palm trees and visit the gift shop and museum and talk to several Native American tour guides about the local Chumash tribes. I highly recommend a visit during the winter season.
