Best value in Palm Desert; it has the luxury and grounds of much higher-priced homes.
You get all the benefits of a luxury home, but at a fraction of the price.
Enjoyed our stay at the cozy casita. Steve had wonderful suggestions for restaurants, hikes or activities in and around Palm Desert. The jacuzzi was a definite plus. We didn't use much else of the yard because we were out enjoying golf, hikes and restaurants for much of the days and evenings. Both the yard and casita are well maintained and very clean. The location is perfect - close to the wonderful shops and restaurants on El Paseo and numerous golf courses. The neighborhood is also very nice and quiet. We hope to visit again very soon.
We loved our time in Cozy Castia. Swimming in the salt water pool was a highlight for me. As was the beautiful and quiet outdoor space. The casita itself is very comfortable; comfy bed, great AC, plenty of good towels, and more.Steve, the host is super friendly and really cares that his guests have a good time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in the Cozy Casita. It was a beautiful and quiet setting. Close to El Paseo which fulfilled most of the shopping and dining needs we had. Steve and Karen were extremely helpful and considerate. We have no problem recommending this listing to anyone who might be interested.
Stay could not have better. Th Casita was comfortable, clean wonderfully decorated. The nice, big surprise was the use of the entire back yard, which included pool, whirlpool and multiple seating areas. It was also very nice to be staying in a neighborhood which afforded quiet relaxation when desired. Also, the location was ideal for us at it was convenient to El Paseo, The Rivers and many golf courses; as well as living desert. Hate to write such a positive revue as it will be less likely that we will be able to book again as it may already be booked.
It was clean, and well taken care of. Our use of the yard was an enjoyable asset to our stay.
We stayed at the cozy casita for one week and totally enjoyed it. It is quite private and quiet but still only a 20minute walk to El Paseo where there are scores of places to eat and shop.
Steve and Karen are excellent hosts and made our stay unforgettable.
The accommodations lacked nothing. Everything was great.
