About Ayesha and Collin Rognlie

The Rognlies and Trislers share ownership of this retreat from the winter chill, snow, and rain. This year we finally realized our dream of a place to escape from the cold and wet. Our two families (grandparents and son-in-law/daughter) live in the Seattle area and would love to share this special home when we aren't there soaking up the wonderful sunshine.

Ayesha and Collin Rognlie purchased this house in 2012

Why Ayesha and Collin Rognlie chose California Desert

Palm Desert is centrally located in the beautiful California desert area of Coachella Valley, which extends from Palm Springs to La Quinta. It is an ideal place to escape the cold North wind and to enjoy sunshine and warmth during the cold and wet seasons. Our home is in a protected, quiet gated community, with the location and all the comforts and amenities to enable a great vacation retreat.

What makes this house unique

Great restaurants and great shopping are close by, great desert walks and hiking, wonderful local events and culture. And more specific to our home; a great private, heated salt water pool and spa, and a comfortable, fully equipped home.

Very clean and well stocked with dishes and paper products and soaps.

The pool and spa were very inviting. I enjoyed that while hubby golfed. It is very quiet and relaxing there. Felt very safe, enjoyed sleeping with the patio door open and getting the nice breeze at night.

Perfect vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The home is nicely furnished with an EXCELLENT kitchen---great pots & pans, lots of plates, mugs, etc. Pool and hot tub are delightful. Nice quiet neighborhood that is gated and convenient to everything. Added plus for me with my 2 young golfers is that the First Tee par 3 & driving range is less than a mile away. We will be renting this one again!

Fine House / Very Helpful Owners

  • 5 of 5

Well before beginning our stay, the owners, Ayesha & Collin, were very helpful in sending detailed information about the property and the community. They also sent detailed notes about where to find things in the house and instructions on the pool and spa operation. Also included was a lot of information about the area around the Coachella Valley.

On entering the house we found everything to be very tidy and clean. It was quite comfortable and made us feel at home right away. All the plumbing, electrics, TVs, etc. worked without problems or confusion. The same was true for the whole two weeks of our stay. Also, the pool and grounds were well cared for by services employed by the owners.

We had some back and forth emails with the owners about doing thing in the Palm Desert area; all were helpful, good recommendations and suited to us.

All in, we could not have been happier with our stay in Rognlie's house in Palm Springs.

Best VRBO in palm Desert

  • 5 of 5

We first visited this VRBO in January 2015. The visit was so nice we booked the house again for 2016 and just checked out of our 2017 visit........and will be booking our 2018 visit next week. It is a very comfortable house and centrally located to all things Coachella Valley.

You simply can not go wrong with this property.

Wonderful vacation home. Very welcoming atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

This home is well equipped to accommodate visitors.

It is colorful, very clean, has all the comforts of home. The pool and spa area is sure to be a place to spend many hours to relax. The privacy is wonderful. Hummingbirds lovingly visit, and perform a great show each morning.

A negative was the clanging, and boisterous children playing next door. However, it was only occasionally, but easy to overlook considering all of the positive.

One must be VERY CAREFUL in the master is way slippery with shinny tiles on the floor. No grip at all. So be careful.

Overall--a wonderful place! We will surely go again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the alert regarding the slippery tiles in the shower. We will add some non-slip strips to the shower floor.
