Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

'Indigo Dreams' is the perfect choice for your indoor/outdoor Palm Springs-area vacation. This popular vacation home sits on a securely walled 1/3 acre lot on a well-cared-for, quiet, and wind-free block in a safe, desirable Southern desert neighborhood called Cathedral City Cove.

This home has been completely remodeled to high standards. It's modern style decor is complemented by thoughtful details that add convenience and comfort, making your stay both special and memorable. The large lot ensures privacy, ample sun and strategic shade, any time of year. The backyard and every room in the house offer nice views of the surrounding mountains from Mt. San Jacinto to the West, Joshua Tree National Monument in the North, and the Santa Rosa Mountains to the South.

There are 7 comfortably padded chaise lounges, pool floats and toys, and a stainless steel gas bbq with all the grilling accessories you might want - we even stock cedar planks for your grilled salmon. Relax in the outdoor living room and have your choice of eating inside or at one of two outdoor dining areas - one in the shade with overhead fan and the other drenched under sun and stars. During the day, large market umbrellas create strategic shade where wanted.

While you soak in the hot spa and play in the refreshing pool, rest assured that the saline-based, non-chlorine water will be gentle on your skin, hair and eyes - and on the environment. (Please refer to the 'Rates' section for info about the Optional Pool Heating Fee.) Don't forget to come prepared to tell stories as you get cozy around the color-lit pool and the natural gas fire pit at night.

The home is tastefully furnished in a modern, contemporary style with polished concrete floors throughout, soaring cathedral ceilings in the great room with HDTV TV and modern glass fireplace, and an open, indoor/outdoor floor plan that will make you happy. The award-winning remodeled and well-stocked gourmet kitchen will please your chef. Indigo Dreams is TechSmart: Nest thermostat, iHome in each room, computerized pool/spa controls can be accessed through your smart phone, DVD/BluRay/streaming movies to the TVs, reliable high speed wireless internet throughout, and even a printer for your use.

Four bedrooms (K, Q, Q, F) with luxurious, quality mattresses and high thread count linens will help you get a good nights rest.

In the garage you'll find a new, full-sized high efficiency washer/dryer, a loaner bicycle, and a new massage table for your romantic or therapeutic touch. Lots of eco/green features/upgrades make this a fun and interesting, yet guilt-free low-carbon vacation.

And don't let that nasty desert wind ruin your vacation. 'Indigo Dreams' is on a lovely quiet block in a nice, Southern neighborhood called Cathedral City Cove. It's protected by a beautiful Cove of mountains making it one of the quietest, least windy, most pleasant neighborhoods in the whole desert. Yet it's less than a mile to: Trader Joe's, the new Olympic Ice Skating Rink, a theater complex including an IMAX, and several very good restaurants (including La Tablita, Trilussa, and Cello's). Centrally located: 7 miles to downtown Palm Springs, and 6 miles the other way to The River at Rancho Mirage.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome ($100 fee/per dog). Monthly rentals pay for actual gas and electric utility usage.

If this house is booked we also have a 3BR home in the same great neighborhood: and another great 4BR home:

Thanks for considering staying at 'Indigo Dreams'!

About Joe

We're Doug and Joe. We feel in love with the Palm Springs Desert Area almost 20 years ago. Doug is a college professor, and Joe is an entrepreneur and certified green building professional.

Joe purchased this house in 1997

Why Joe chose Palm Springs

We first discovered the Cathedral City Cove neighborhood almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we rented dozens of vacation homes in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage, and we found that homes in 'The Cove' area of Cathedral City had much bigger lots with better views. Also, regular Palm Springs visitors know that the desert wind can be very bad at times. North Palm Springs is the windiest area, but sometimes the wind even spreads to Central & South Palm Springs. Protected by a circle of the Santa Rosa Mountains to the South, and giant San Jacinto Mountain to the West, 'The Cove' has one of the least windy micro-climates in the entire desert. We are only 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs on one side and 10 minutes to Rancho Mirage's The River or El Paseo's fine shopping and galleries on the other side. Best of all, good desert hikes are walking distance all around our neighborhood!

Perfect place for us 3 years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of renting this beautiful house for the last three years for our "Friends Getaway" we would stay for more of our standard four days if our schedules allowed it. We enjoy the house so much that most of the time we don't even leave. We cook, BBQ, and enjoy catching up poolside. It really feels more like a resort than a house. We like to cook and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need need and more. Lots of barware for outside (plastic) and for inside. The chaise lounges by the pool are very nice and comfortable and plenty of umbrellas when you need them. Finally, it is so easy to book, much more affordable than hotels and the owner Joe takes great pride in keeping up the place as well as making it environment friendly that we can feel great about our choice to stay at one of his houses every year.

Fantastic family getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was spot on! The property was well maintained and clean!!! The customer service from Joe was second to none! I would recommend this property to anyone; family with small children, couples getaway, two family getaway... All the stores were so close. We never wanted to leave so we picked up all our supplies from the nearby trader joe's and BBQed every night! We were sad to leave!

Don't hesitate to reserve this home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting this home for a month. Cathedral City turned out to be the perfect place to be for us...rather than either Palm Springs or Palm Desert. No matter which way we wanted to go, it was maybe a 10 minute drive or less. Had we stayed at one of these which are at opposite ends of the area, it would have been a 20 minute drive to get to the other. Since we eat out at least once a day (and many times 2X a day) we were out and about a lot!

The family neighborhood is quiet and I wouldn't hesitate to take long walks in the area. The mountain views from both the front and back were enjoyed immensely. Games, puzzles, DVDs and even a printer are provided.

The pool area is big enough for a huge family but the most we had at one time was only 4! Comfy loungers have replaced the ones pictured with metal legs. He has lots of pool toys although we brought our own noodles. At night the colored pool lights are a nice addition. We sat outside and watched the sun set several evenings nursing a glass of wine.

The king size bed in the roomy master is comfortable with a good sized closet and 2 separate sink areas in the master bath. You can see the moon through the skylight in the shower. The other bedrooms are adequate and all have bedside tables and storage plus nice closets (the 4th bedroom shares the master closet through a connecting door which can be locked).

The house is spacious and the combined living, dining, kitchen area is perfect! The kitchen has everything one could possibly need! There are even a few kitchen items (a larger pan and crock pot type cooker among them) stored in the garage. There are lots of spices and teas plus some other items people have probably used and left behind. While Joe provides things such as toilet paper, tissues, etc., we bought our own especially since we were there for an entire month. There absolutely was nothing we needed that wasn't there.

As for Joe the couldn't ask for a more responsive caring person. Although a neighbor greeted us soon after our arrival, Joe stopped by for a visit at an agreed upon time. Every time we mentioned an item that would be nice to have

Making it simple...made for a lot of fun!

  • 5 of 5

First time VRBO user. Or family was so impressed with how well equipped the home was. Everything we needed and everything had a place (labels to locate it all). The back yard was roomy, great view, lots of seating around a fantastic in ground glass fire pit. Spent every night under the stars just chatting and bringing back childhood stories. Joe was available to answer questions and helped us get situated on move in day. A wonderful time had by all! Looking forward to coming back!

Out of the wind!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Northern Palm Springs where it is windy, this was nice to not have the wind. House has a fully stocked kitchen - if one wishes to cook @ home. The real attraction is the backyard which was really the best place to be, if we had had sun for more than one day, it would have been enjoyed even more! Started off with some mis-communication, but Joe was great to get it all cleared away. Family was glad to be in good, quiet neighborhood and enjoyed the view out over the valley. Thanks for sharing the house with others!

Christmas Stay in Palm Springs

  • 4 of 5

The owner of the house we stayed at was very helpful and the accommodation was perfect for my family to get away from a cold Canadian winter and spend Christmas in Palm Springs. We had a large party and we ended up landing early after getting up very early for the flight in, the owner allowed us to check in early and a quick refreshing swim set the trip off perfect for the 4 kids that were with us. We had everything we needed to put on a full turkey Christmas dinner with all the fixings and that made it Christmas for all of us. Thank-you for the stay

Car: recommended

Our home is located in the desirable Upper Cathedral City Cove neighborhood. We're on a nice one block long street in an area of large view lots - it's quiet, like a cul-de-sac. Who wants to be right on top of their neighbors? This lot is nearly .4 acres in size, letting you stretch out in all directions. The views from the house and beautifully backyard are phenomenal in most any direction you look. In contrast to much of Palm Springs, especially the North section, this neighborhood is known as one of the most wind protected areas in the desert, so those Spring winds won't spoil your tanning session by the pool or your outdoor dining experience. While all the desert attractions are only a few minutes drive away, you can nearly walk to a nice collection of restaurants - casual (e.g., Sunshine Cafe, La Tablita, India Oven) or elegant (e.g., Highly Acclaimed Dish Creative Cuisine, Cello's Bistro, Trilussa). Within a mile there's: Trader Joe',s Desert IMAX, Mary Pickford Multiplex, Desert Ice Castle

Other Activities: Nice desert hikes just a short walk or drive away. Miniature golf and Knott's Soak City are very close. Centrally located only minutes from 3 Downtown areas: Palm Springs, Cathedral City, and Rancho Mirage. For those attending nearby weddings, The Parker Palm Springs and The Cree Estate are only a few minutes away.

Golf: There are over 100 golf courses just a short drive away.
