My Aunt and Uncle homesteaded this Cahuilla Hills land in 1948 and built the cabin, affectionately known as 'The Bird Cage'. There was no electricity or water at that time; now we have both, as well as heat and A/C. The Homestead is a little less than 500 sq. ft. with a 'million dollar view' of the Coachella Valley, surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains, and Bighorn Golf Club. It's one of the last homesteads in our area. It sits atop a hill in Cahuilla Hills, an area now know for million dollar homes on minimum 5 acre lots; however, the location is only 2 miles from downtown Palm Desert.
The Birdcage has one small bedroom with a new queen sized bed, a small bathroom with a good size shower (with a window), and a living/dining/kitchen room - all with beautiful views. There is a covered/shaded patio as well as a sunny patio, perfect for relaxation while enjoying the beautiful day and starry night views among Nature's lovely landscaping.
Our family owns 4 homes on the surrounding acres. They are spread out from one another. Privacy is secured by electronic gates and it's a very safe area. We are raising date palms at the bottom of the hill.

I wanted to preserve this lovely property for generations to come; an example of how living used to be.
It's fun to stay here, relaxing, exhilarating at the same time. You're close to hiking, town and all the amenities of the area, yet in this quiet beautiful setting. Linens dried by the desert sun. The city light view is so spectacular that you won't want to go to bed!! Spring wildflowers are covering the property.
Ask about your dog. Small to medium dogs over two years old, well trained are okay.
Wonderful hikes and walks. The Coachella Valley is full of many activities and great shopping and restaurants.
