About Joe Bonin

We'd love to have you stay at our great home in the Desert!

If you are interested in a mountain vacation, we also have a home in Whistler, BC, VRBO Listing ID 661367. While our place is not quite as large as our Desert home, it is a great place for a family to enjoy some colder winter activities!

Joe Bonin purchased this house in 2008

Why Joe Bonin chose California Desert

We chose this home in Mission Lakes Country Club because it is quiet and private, yet has great spaces for entertaining. The Casita allows us to invite guests to stay with us and still maintain private spaces for all. Mission Lakes provides a peaceful setting and great golf without the high prices and yet is only minutes away from the shops, restaurants, casinos and action in Palm Springs. The more natural desert landscapes featured throughout the Country Club were more appealing than the meticulously over manicured, water consuming landscapes of many of the surrounding communities.

What makes this house unique

The comfortably furnished patio areas, fountain and fireplace provide endless outdoor relaxation and indoors, the pool table gets used almost every day. We enjoy spending romantic time alone and entertaining friends and family equally.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 star

Left on 12/24/2014 for a stay in December 2014 via FlipKey (p530545)

The house was clean, well stocked with kitchen appliances and basic needs like coffee spices, all dishes, pots and pans and utensils. The rooms were clean and incredibly comfortable. The pool table made for a fun evening with our family. The putting green in the backyard gave the perfect sunset golf lesson between a father and his youngest son. I honestly couldn't say enough nice things about how this was such an amazing place to make life long family memories. I'd highly recommend this to even a family larger than our five some of adults. We had plenty of common and private space. Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy our time there. My sister-in-law was so blown away by the interior space that she wants to rent it to throw our cousin's bridal shower in the lovely, spacious back yard.

Spacious Home Mission Lakes Golf Course in Desert Hot Springs
average rating of 4.857143 based on 21 reviews

This home was perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun on our stay this past March. We went to Disney Land, San Deago zoo and the wineries. Joe the owner was always pleasant and easy to deal with. Was cold a couple of nights and we had a fire in the livingroom fire place. Pool table got a lot of use, as did the outdoor firepit. Close to a lot of parks our favorite for hiking the Morongo preserve was also across the street from great bbq. Joshua Tree national park is amazing.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for the rental Jeanne. We had great weather this winter, but unfortunately a severe wind storm came in at the end of March and you caught the tail end of it. It is unfortunate that more than half of your week had high winds, but we are glad that you enjoyed your stay despite the winds. Joe

This holiday visit to Desert Hot Springs and the nearby Palm Desert area was our first. The house was in all respects, as advertised. It was all ready at the stated 'check in time,' it was clean and tidy and very well appointed. The very large outdoor patio included several sitting areas and was perfect for lounging in the afternoon sun. Communication with the owners re arrival procedures, access codes, phone numbers etc. check out was simple. The only complaint we had was our holiday wasn't long enough.

"The house is absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Our stay was very pleasant. The house was beautiful and CLEAN, which I appreciate SO much. We were able to take advantage of the outdoor fireplace one night. Also appreciated that the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, platters, utensils. Everything you need to prepare a meal was there. Appliances were very nice too. Very quiet, safe neighborhood at the end of a court. We will be back!"

Spacious Home in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

We rented this spacious and well maintained home in the Mission Lakes golf community for the months of February and March 2012. The home was everything that we could hope for in a vacation rental. The area of Mission Lakes is a quiet well maintained complex. The kitchen was easy to work in, the appliances top notch and we really enjoyed the fridge with the ice maker and water dispenser. The patio with the gas fireplace was used and enjoyed on those nights with little wind. The patio furniture was comfortable which enabled us to take advantage of the weather outside. The living room was comfortable with the fireplace taking the edge off on those cool evenings. The pool table was a nice touch for evening entertainment. Overall we had a wonderful time and would not hesitate in recommending this house to others.

Beautiful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We chose this lovely home as a gathering place for our family for Christmas. The house worked out really well for all of us - from the youngest (16) to the oldest (79). The owners have thought of just about everything and made the rental process very easy for us! We would definitely rent this house again.
