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.

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.

Warm weather and your own private pool out back - that right there is a great vacation! And this home also has plenty of indoor space, a really well-stocked kitchen, and is close to all the Palm Desert attractions. The layout of the house means early risers won't bother late sleepers. And the owners are super-attentive, providing detailed instructions so you won't have to guess how to run the TV or heat the hot tub. We loved our stay here, will definitely plan a return trip.

La Cresta Palm Desert Home

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful! The house is immaculately clean and well furnished. The yard and pool are very well maintained in a very private and quiet setting. It is a very central location for shopping and restaurants in any direction from the home. Owners were delightful to deal with - prompt and respectful in responding to our questions. We will definitely be back to this property for another time of R &R!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal place for our family vacation with our Grandson and friends. The house is beautiful and functional. The pool and spa

were used quite a lot during our stay. Very secure feeling in the neighborhood due to its location. If you ever need a place in Palm Desert,

this is the place! 100% satisfaction!!

The Reviews Don't Lie - FANTASTIC RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5

By now you've probably already read the wonderful reviews on this property...well...this review won't be any different.

As the most recent renters of this property (May 14-21, 2016) my wife and I must say that everything from start to finish was absolutely top notch and is EXACTLY what a rental experience is supposed to be. This is one of those properties that you just cannot pass on as the property is brilliantly appointed and is situated perfectly within the Palm Desert community. The pictures online give you a great sense of just how nice a property this actually is but seeing it in person (most especially the backyard oasis) will ensure you want to go back again and again!

Prior to our arrival the property owner Collin sent us a package with all the information we could possibly require for our trip. This is the perfect touch as we were able to plan out everything much more efficiently (which is important with a 6 month old in tow). From how to work the pool equipment, how to operate the automatic locks and even some great restaurant suggestions the homeowners ensured we were well taken care of (and at this point we hadn't even left our own home).

When we finally arrived at the property were quickly able to get situated and begin to enjoy our time there as the house contains everything you could possibly need...and more. This meant that we were able to enjoy every second of the private oasis in the backyard of this beautiful gated community (which really was our main vacation requirement). The property owners even have a welcome binder that provides you with any information about the house you could possibly require, making the stay that much less stressful and more enjoyable. Even when I had an awning related question Collin got back to me ASAP with both a phone call and an e-mail which I thought was just incredible.

This property is located next to EVERYTHING in Palm Desert and nothing is very far away. From the airport to the outlet mall to Indian Wells and even Coachella nothing seems to be more than 30 minutes away (with most things you will need being less than 10 minutes in any direction). I'll only mention the golf which is on the doorstep of this property and is world class!

Overall, GREAT property and GREAT property owners. What else can you ask for?

We can't wait to go back!
