Welcome to Terrace @ the Cove
(Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall)
Conveniently located between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage in the sought-after Cathedral City “Cove,” this 2,300 sq. ft. natural light-filled 1950’s mid-century modern home captures the desert style of living with “period” décor, an “open floor plan,” three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large terraced yard with smooth transition stairs, a saltwater pool/spa and features an entire back wall of sliding glass doors providing San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountain views.
Flowing seamlessly through the foyer is THE LIVING ROOM, with its welcoming fireplace, large comfortable sectional, a variety of seating, a specialty seating nook and a 60” flat screen TV (with surround sound, blue ray and Ipod capabilities). THE OPEN KITCHEN features an art deco dining table, island seating for those quick meals, all the necessary/kitchen cooking appliances (including Krieuq single cup coffee maker) and amenities, and an adjacent laundry room with washer and dryer (supplies provided). The large back wall of sliding glass doors enables anyone in the foyer, living room and kitchen to be part of the action inside, out on the patio and/or down around the pool. The entire upper patio has retractable awnings, so during the warmer spring/summer days the upper patio and interior living and kitchen areas are protected from the sun. Along with whole house air conditioning, Terrace @ the Cove is your year round vacation home!
The THREE BEDROOMS AND TWO BATHROOMS are divided into each side of the house. On one side is a second master, with a Cal King bed over looking the front yard, a flat screen TV and blue ray, plenty of storage and the adjacent shared guest bathroom. On the Eastside of the house is the main master bedroom, featuring a tufted white platform Cal King bed, a flat screen TV and blue ray, picture window with terrific views, sliding glass door to a side patio and an en-suite “50’s period style” bathroom. The third bedroom features a beautiful queen platform bed (with mood lighting), flat-screen TV and blue ray, plenty of closet space and unique shelves filled with books and board games. The home comes with two hideaway floor bed mats/linens and all rooms are Ipod ready.
The kitchen and living room open to a large upper terraced patio which overlooks the spacious and PRIVATE BACK YARD. Included on the upper patio are rectractable awnings, BBQ, dining table, additional seating and a variety of lawn games await your arrival. The upper patio is a favorite spot for early morning coffee, curling up with the paper or a good book, alfresco dining or grabbing a beverage and watching the sun set on the adjacent mountains. THE SALT WATER POOL, designed with a limited deep section, features a baja shelf with in-pool-chairs and there are plenty of moveable umbrellas, pool 'floatees,' pool games and chaise lounges. And, don't forget, there a small fire pit for those cool evenings spent under the desert stars.
A stay with us will remind you why celebrities (past and present) flock to the Coachella Valley for memorable vacations!
Thank you for considering Terrace @ the Cove.

Prior to and after meeting in the desert, we have been vacationing here for years. As retirement becomes more of a reality, we begin searching for just the right desert home. After years of 'open houses,' the minute we walked in the front door of this home we knew this was not only the place for us, but it would also make for a great rental. With an open floor plan, two master's on opposite sides of the house, a private yard and a large back wall of windows, you'll agree this is both a great vacation home and terrific retirement space.
The 'Cove,' nestled between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, makes getting to all desert hot spots a 'hop-skip and a jump'. The Cove reminds us of the way the desert must have been in its 'Rat Pack' hay-day. The neigbhorhood is walkable and restaurants, bars, shopping centers, casinos, the airport, movie theatres, the waterpark and so much more are minutes away from the home. Many of the hot spots mentioned above can be reached by bike (two bikes are provided for guests).
The moment you walk in the door, you'll know you've book the right desert vacation home.
Why rent a room, share a pool and pay for daily meals when you, your family and friends can gather your belongings, settle in and enjoy all the comforts of a desert home?
As new owners, in 2011 we renovated and upgraded both the interior and exterior of the home, making sure to stay true to the period while providing all the comforts one would expect and want while on vacation.
