Wonderful location. Great people. Casita is exactly a pictured. Just what we needed. Quiet, restful, refreshing. Opportunity to read books. Sit by the pool. Completely private. Have been here twice & coming back again.

Cozy Casita perfect for a convention stay

  • 5 of 5

My fiance, Amy Glester, and I stayed at the Cozy Casita in April of 2015, while we were visiting Palm Desert for the annual Industrial Asset Management Council Convention. Our hosts were very accomodating, and the Cozy Casita was everything promised, as well as a quiet retreat from the Hyatt at half the cost. This is an excellent rental, I'd recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Palm Desert and looking for a quiet, clean location at a very reasonable price. Best, Jeff Troan and Amy Gleste.

An Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Casita is a peaceful, clean and comfortable studio apartment with hummingbirds to watch and citrus to eat in season. It's well situated, especially if your intent is to visit all of the desert cities. Steve currently offers a free tour of the Living Desert tailored to your individual interests which was wonderful. I was very pleased with my stay.

Lovely, relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was even better than expected! Steve and Karen are wonderful hosts. They have left nothing to chance. The Casita is perfect and includes everything you need. The location is also perfect. It's just above El Paseo, which gives you access to fine dining and lovely shops while affording you the quiet beauty of a private retreat.

Charming stay, casita perfectly described!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are looking forward to going back! The casita was wonderfully furnished, had everything we were looking for, and was in a superb location. We told the owner, Steve, we were looking for privacy during our stay, and he completely delivered. Steve was very responsive to our emails and just the perfect host.

My husband and I spent 3 days lounging by the pool, soaking in the hot tub, and stargazing at night. There was a bbq area and cooking area outside, but we never used it as we went out to eat at the great, convenient restaurants that are so near.

Overall, we truly enjoyed the hospitality and the lovely property and will be returning!
