Cathedral City House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 3br 2ba Home With Gorgeous Mountain Views At The Top Of The Cove

We welcome you to our little piece of Paradise!!

This inviting and private 1360 square foot home is located on a large cul-de-sac lot near the top of Cathedral City Cove. The Cove, a beautiful hillside neighborhood, is well known for it’s star-gazing skies (no street lights allowed) and incredibly tranquil and quiet nights. There are 3 beautifully furnished bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large private backyard with salt water pool and picturesque views of the Santa Rosa Mountains.

The living room is complete with plush furnishings, large flat screen TV and DVD with Netflix, Pandora etc. access. The fully equipped dining and Kitchen area has everything the gourmet or casual cook needs with easy access through sliding glass doors to the pool and backyard. There are ample linens and towels for inside and outside use.

The Master: Amenities include a plush pillow top California King, ample dresser and night stand space, private bathroom and separate entry from/to the pool area as well as flat screen television with DVD player.

The Double: This double-size room includes two Full pillow-top beds, long dresser and tall chest of drawers and ample closet space. Sliding glass doors open to the rear porch sitting area overlooking desert landscaping and majestic pine trees.

Queenie: The 3rd bedroom boasts a Queen pillow top bed and ample storage for the second couple or older siblings.

The oasis like backyard features rose bushes, pine trees, desert vegetation and a refreshing saltwater pool. A covered lanai, season changing lawn and elevated rear deck surrounds the swimming pool with expansive mountain views that change hourly and afford spectacular starry nights. There are pool amenities, loungers, patio chairs, tables, and a covered eating area.

The home is conveniently located south of Highway 111 between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. The location is perfect…close to everything...yet away from it all!! Access to miles of hiking trails lined with native cactus, smoke trees and fragrant wild desert sage without getting having to get in the car.

Within a very peaceful hillside environment, it's still only 10 minutes away from Palm Springs and Palm Desert. A short drive and you have access to movie theatres, including an IMAX, shopping, restaurants, golf courses and Palm Springs International Airport. The Joshua Tree National Park, Aerial Tramway, Cabot Pueblo Museum, Palms to Pines Drive and Aqua Caliente Indian Canyons are all a 1 hour or less drive away.

Fewer than 5 miles away -- less than a 10 minute drive is Palm Springs' Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort, recently rated “One of the Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest. A plethora of additional public and private Golf courses are nearby as well as Tennis Courts, Sports and Fitness activities and many excellent Delis and Restaurants!

About Sean & Christel O'Rourke

My name is Sean O'Rourke. I'm a native Californian and pharmacist/Golfer who lives in Escondido with my beautiful wife Christel and three chitlins, Brian, Christopher and Toireasa-Marie.

Sean & Christel O'Rourke purchased this house in 1993

Why Sean & Christel O'Rourke chose Cathedral City

I moved to the Desert at the beginning of my career and this is the first house I bought. A major fixer at the time and so worth it. The quiet serenity and amazing views of the upper cove always brings me to a wonderfully calm and loving sense of wellbeing. This is the house where my wife, Christel, and I began our relationship, had our wedding rehearsal dinner and have continually infused our love into this property for 20 years.

What makes this house unique

Laying in the sun by the pool and enjoying the wonderfully maintained landscape and everchanging mountain views in total privacy and serenity. Playing Golf and Hiking. Going to the nearby Casinos. Shopping in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage. Wine Tasting in Palm Springs. Bike Riding and Going to movies at our Nearby IMax or going to 'the River' in Rancho Mirage.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house at the base of the mountain! The backyard was lovely and relaxing. It was clean and comfortable. We have rented several houses on Vrbo and we loved working with the owners and Randy, the property manager. We appreciated the fact that the house was supplied with basic necessities so we didn't have to run to the store when we arrived in Palm Springs.
Thank you!!!

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect. I could not have asked more from this home and it's owners/caretakers. Randy and Sean were great at communicating and making sure we had everything we needed.
We were a large group going to Coachella Music Festival (and the first group to do it for this house!), so we wanted a comfortable home to sleep in and enjoy when we weren't partying over there. It surpassed our expectations. I look forward to possibly booking this house again sometime in the future.

Owner's Response: Wow!! Thank you for your comments. Being our first year with the house as a VRBO, we have learned a lot and we had a tremendous amount of inquiries for the Coachella Music Festival and Stage Coach; Two amazing events that happen at the perfect time of year. We are so thankful that the house surpassed your expectations; you had a comfortable place to relax after a day of music and that you would like to stay with us again. We have tried our best to furnish the house with everything needed for a quiet getaway for 2, a family or a larger group visiting the Desert. Thank you for caring for the house as we have for over 20 years. We look forward to hearing from you the next time you plan a visit!

Nice house, right-sized, good location

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 enjoyed staying here. Great location for getting to Indian Canyons in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert (all within about 10-15 minutes). Quiet, residential neighborhood. Nice hike into the hills behind the development. Appeared to be some mountain biking trails as well in that area. The pool was large, in early April it was pretty cold but swimable. Good, comfortable beds, and nice to have a TV in each bedroom as well as in the living room. Our kids enjoyed the pool table in the garage as well. Communication with owners/manager was easy, they were very helpful and accommodating. Listing and photos were accurate. Price was fair. No question, we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for everything and we look forward to having you back the next time you visit the Desert. The house is located in a great neighborhood and as we say, is close to most everything in the Desert yet “away from it all”. We’re happy you got to enjoy the hiking trails and the great views they provide just a short walk away. We’re also pleased to hear you enjoyed the pool. Even though it’s never had a physical heater, the “do it yourself” solar heater we installed kept the temperature swimmable through the winter months. And although there are only a few months of the year it could use a heater, we took the first step by installing the gas line so we can add a heater as soon as financially possible.

Well-maintained property in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
This was a great, affordable place to stay while visiting the Palm Springs area. Two friends and I were in town for the BNP Paribas Open and stayed at this quaint, well-maintained home in Cathedral City. While 20-25 minutes away from our destination in Indian Wells, we were very happy with our "home" base. The house is updated and very functional with a beautiful patio/pool area. The property was as good or better than expected based on the pictures we originally saw on VRBO. The owners were very accommodating to our requests, and the manager was in regular contact and very helpful. I recommend this property to to couples, small groups, or families looking for a nice home to relax in why visiting the area. It might not be as centrally located as some other properties in the area, but this great little home is in a quiet neighborhood and very reasonably priced for the budget-conscious traveler.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words and information you provided for other vacationers to see. The Tennis tournament in Indian Wells is a great venue in the Desert and is during a perfect time of the year for wonderful weather and outdoor activities. We're very happy you enjoyed "home base" and hopefully were able to stop at some of the great shopping areas of Palm Desert on your way to and from the tournament. Although the tournament is more in the eastern side of the Desert, we also hope you had the opportunity to visit downtown Palm Springs just 10-15 minutes from the house to the west.
And, Thank you so much for your correspondence with the manager and us. We pride ourselves in providing a relaxing and happy holiday for all that come to stay at "Paradise".

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here with our two dogs! The owners and Randy the next door caretaker could not have been more helpful. The pictures don't do the pool and outdoor space justice - and the totally fenced and private grounds were wonderful. It's a very quiet area - which is what we wanted - with lovely walks from the front door. We liked that it was between Palm Springs and Palm Desert - felt close to everything though not great for those wanting to be close to night life. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being our guests and for the nice comments you provided. It’s wonderful to hear how others enjoy the house and amenities it provides. And thank you for your kind words about the pool and grounds. We’ve always loved the privacy and rock terraces that provide a great presentation for the varied landscaping that surrounds the pool. Our ultimate goal is to provide a beautiful, private and comfortable property for our guests in an ideal neighborhood to enjoy all the Desert has to provide. The greatest compliment is that you’ll be back!! We look forward to hearing from you and your plans to return.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
This home was perfect for our mixed family use. We had 6 adults & 1 child and we had plenty of room for all. The home was a great floor plan and the yard was gorgeous! Beautifully landscaped with the lawn surrounding the pool along with a three tiered hillside with a gorgeous collection of cactus and succulents! We relaxed by the pool and had enough space that no one felt that they were on top of each other. The neighborhood is great and being "just away but close enough" to all the amenities you might need in town is great. Centrally located. Fabulous owner, who was very communicative and flexible from the beginning and a great property manager that met us to check us in & show up the place. I will be back to rent this one when we come again! Thank you for a wonderful peaceful home to rent!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. Being new to VRBO, we are very grateful you were the first guests to visit our house and look forward to your next visit to the Desert. We were also very happy to hear that the work we did in furnishing and stocking the house was just right for you and your family. We were very appreciative of the questions and correspondence as it helps us continually improve the amenities for all the guests to come. Warm Regards and Happy Holidays!!
