About Adi Gross

I am a resident of Palm Desert and manage a small stable of unique vacation properties.

My goal has always been to bring back a level of customer service to my quests as well as my owners that seems to have dwindled in resent years. I accomplish this goal by keeping my stable of properties small and paying attention to the small details within a property which allows for a positive vacation experience for my quests.

Have a wonderful vacation in our beautiful desert.

Adi Gross

Adi Gross purchased this house in 2002

Why Adi Gross chose California Desert

'The Sweet Spot' has been enjoyed by many guests over the years that return time and time again.

It is the location that makes this property so attractive.

You are minutes from all desert attractions and eateries as well as surrounded by championship golf courses and spas.

Spending the day touring the desert is wonderful but coming back to 'The Sweet Spot' and relaxing by the pool on your own double fairway with mountain views is priceless.

What makes this house unique

In addition to it's spacious kitchen, beautiful decor and location, many guests comment on the back yard. They love the stone pool and the mountain views often saying that they spent most of their vacation outside.

The golfers find the home to be a perfect golf vacation rental. The home course is right outside the backyard gate which makes it easy to play everyday and offers unbeatable green fees.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Adi,

You have done a great job on the little “Sweet Spot”. Incredible pool and setting & you have done a great job updating the house. Loved the decor and the chase lounge in the living room….best spot in the evening! We relaxed and enjoyed each day to it’s fullest. One of the highlights was watching the morning maintenance on the golf course, how entertaining! Especially the guy with the 2 dogs. : )

We are excited at the thought of possibly purchasing a home in Palm Desert! Not sure if it will come about this summer or next, but we are so grateful for your help and your offer for future help as well. We are also glad we found The Sweet Spot! It will be our place of choice from now until we purchase our own and we will certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Palm Desert.

Thank you for your excellent customer service. You do an outstanding job at making “guests” feel “at home”.

This vacation rental is the best I have ever stayed at. The house itself has great feng shui. From the moment you walk in you feel at peace and your stresses melt away.The beds are amazing. They call to you for a great night sleep. And the view!!! Takes you to a dream. The Palm trees against the desert sky lined with mountains. I hightly recommend this location. But you better hurry because I have already booked for next year and am telling all my friends.

Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice 3-day weekend stay at The Sweet Spot. It's comfortable and has all the amenities we needed. The backyard, pool/spa, golf course access and mountain view made for a fun and relaxing time. The Manager, Adi, is very attentive and responsive. She quickly and efficiently solved a problem we encountered when the gas meter went out. While it was inconvenient, we realize stuff happens and appreciate the way it was handled. It's nice to know we have a reliable, comfortable place to stay and would definitely do it again and would recommend it to others.

Good time in the desert

  • 4 of 5

Last minute went on line to find a home reasonably priced and centrally located in the desert. We found it here. The house was very clean, good views, great spa and pool and all new towels. Not knowing area was pleasantly surprised to find a good place.
