Peace with great views of the lower desert and mountains. You're away, yet just minutes to shopping. It's the best of both worlds! The popular night spot, Pappy and Harriet's, is, a close 10 minute drive to live music there most every night with a great variety of music every time. The food and the dancing are great too!
This property was a new listing for VRBO as of November 15, 2011. WOW! We were booked for the whole month of December through New Years that year and this fabulous getaway has been enjoyed by many guests since then. Everyone has really enjoyed their stay and all the visitors have had one comment,'We hate To leave'. ;)
I have totally enjoyed being a vacation rental host. I have met some lovely people and have made friends. I look forward to many more visits from the awesome people I have met and I look forward to meeting YOU.
Thank you for your visit on line to view this property and please look at this property's reviews. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me, Dana.
Keywords: Relaxing 3 bedroom home set aside by itself, with the best views from 3 patios! Enjoy the woodburning fireplace on chilly nights. The minute you get out of your car you feel the relaxing atmosphere and the peace with sounds of Quail chearping.
Sleeps 6, but room for more.
The map has not mapped correctly. This home is on the corner of Geronimo and DESERT GOLD. THE RED INDICATOR ON MAP shows the property boundary not the actual house. You can see the house by satellite.
Most pets are allowed with charge, no fencing. Available year round.
I am a long time Desert Dweller, mostly from the nearby lower Desert area of Palm Springs, and now I spend as much time as possible in the high Desert of Yucca Valley. I love the open Desert environment with its Animals, Birds, and Peace. The Desert is a sunny place if you need some warm brightness for your soul.
I love to travel, however the Desert will always call me home. I love to go bike riding in the high Desert and there are many places right around my property to ride my bike out in the Desert with my two standard poodles in tow. By the way this property is pet friendly.
Dana Samalin purchased this chateau / country house in 2006
Of course, the high Desert called to me at some point, and then I grew to love it. Here I am now with a couple of sweet properties in this wonderful place. When I want quiet and peace, this is where you will find me! There is a no TV at my property and no distractiions from the busy world we live in. Most people have a wireless device they travel with that have their own connection. We do not provide WiFi.
When you walk onto the property and walk around the outside there is an immediate feeling of calm, a place to hang out and chill. Almost every window in the home has a lovely view of the Desert and mountains and valley! You can sit at the dining table and enjoy the view from a large window. There are three patios to enjoy each and every view. There are many quail and rabbits that live right there. When you put out seed, an army of enjoyable wild life appears as if you performed a magic trick.
As I stated before, this property is completely different from the lower Desert, except for the regular sunshine! I love the stars and the clear sky, the many quail running around, the cotton tails, jack rabbits, chipmunks, and chirping birds. I have my morning coffee by the big dining window or on my swing and watch the animals bathe in my bird bath or eat something in the bird dish. I can walk right into a trail on my property, or walk over to the edge of the Joshua Tree Forest and keep hiking. No need to get in a car!
Here I am away from everything, yet a 4 minute drive to shopping. This I find very convenient. The ever popular Jelly Donut is just right down the hill, along with several nice antique shops, etc. There is a great breakfast place close by, C&S Cafe, that I can tell you about later. Why cook breakfast if it's that good?
This home has solar units to heat the water and it's always hot and it's almost instant with a hot water pump. Having a dishwasher and washer and dryer is always a nice thing to have, especially on vacation.
I liked this home immediately when I first viewed it in person. The views caught me first and then the inside is an open floor plan with lots of big windows and doors and then the large wood burning fireplace is a great cozy feature that makes you feel extremely at home.
Of course I've done some new tile, carpet and some new lighting and general redecorating to make it feel even better. I have two standard poodles that I take for walks when I am there, we love dogs and understand the need to bring them with you. They are family too! There is no fencing, so sometimes I leave my pets in the garage with their beds and water. Yes they are well behaved, maybe pampered? There is a front porch swing and two other patios to enjoy. Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the view!
We added a WiFi connection recently!
Star watching, art shows, flea market Sat. Sun., Gruber's orchid nursery, night life, bird watching, photography, film shots. Many companies still shoot film in this area. There are horseback riding tours that I know of in Morongo, 10 min. Drive.
A fabulous massage I enjoy right down the hill 4 min.drive, Reasonable pricing! The mineral springs in Desert Hot Springs, 20 min. Drive. Live theater is super great in the high Desert cities. There is a lot of great talent in Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and 29 Palms . You will find quality art everywhere you travel here. The Integraton is a good place to check out.
Of course in May and June the cactuses bloom and that is truly the height of our season. The desert will come alive to nature's calling.
You can take a day trip to the pacific ocean, Disneyland, the film studios in Hollywood, San Diego Zoo, Marineland etc.
There are bus tours leaving from the lower desert to great day trips out of the area here.
Tennis Jacobs Park just minutes down the street, and ice skating in Cathedral City, where I have taken my grand children. There are hugh concerts in Indio and night life in Pioneer town, music every night some well known bands from all around Calif. Monday night is fun with local performers at Pappy and Harriets. Bring your own guitar and sign up to perform!
My favorite resturant plus I love the good old down home cooking at the C&S Cafe on 62, just down the hill from the Birds' Eye View.
