This popular vacation home is on a large lot in a desirable, wind-free neighborhood central to everything in the Palm Springs area. "Green Indigo" is loved by families and friends.
Enjoy the sunny, private yard. Play in the heated, chlorine-free pool. Soak in the large spa. The sexy salt-water is hardly detectable yet, unlike chlorine, it's easy on the hair, skin and eyes. This is your time off. Admire the mountain view while tanning on one of the 6 padded, modern chaises; Swing in the 3 seater; Tell stories around the natural gas fire pit; Share conversation in the outside living room; Play a game of table tennis or bag toss, or just grab your book and head for the hammock.
Your Grill Chef will love the provided cedar planks and the in-line natural gas feed - who wants to run out of propane with steaks on the grill? Inside you'll find a fully-outfitted kitchen with everything you need for gourmet cooking and stylish entertaining. Dine elegantly inside or casually outside.

We're Doug and Joe. We feel in love with Palm Springs over 20 years ago. Doug is a college professor, and Joe is an entrepreneur and certified green building professional.
We first discovered the Cathedral City Cove neighborhood almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we rented vacation homes in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage, and we found that homes in 'The Cove' area of Cathedral City were on bigger lots, with better views, at better values. Also, regular Palm Springs visitors know that the desert wind can be very bad at times, especially in the Spring. North Palm Springs is the windiest area, but sometimes the wind spreads to Central & South Palm Springs. Protected by a circle of the Santa Rosa Mountains, 'The Cove' is one of the least windy neighborhoods in the entire desert. We are situated between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. We are only about 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs and 5 minutes to Rancho Mirage.
'Green Indigo' was extensively remodeled in 2010 utilizing state-of-the-art green building standards and techniques. Waste was minimized, while re-use and recycling was emphasized. The home demonstrates many eco/green features. Here's just a sampling of what you will experience in your stay at 'Green Indigo':
* Energy Star appliances
* Solar thermal pool & spa heating
* Salt water pool w/LED color lighting
* Energy efficient pool pump & low-NOX natural gas pool/spa heater
* Green cleaning products
* Dramatically less exposure than normal to indoor chemicals/contaminants (e.g., toxic formaldehyde and VOCs)
* 100% recycled glass tile in bathrooms
* High recycled content stainless steel used in kitchen
* Recycled content carpet tiles in dining area and bedrooms
* Extensive use of quality, vintage/modern furniture
* Most furniture & cabinetry made from sustainable woods
* High efficiency, yet high performance, WaterSense-certified toilets
* Low flow, yet high performance, faucets and shower heads
* Double pane, low-e windows and doors, south-side with special desert glazing and/or shade protection
* High efficiency, refrigerant-free desert evaporative cooler in addition to EnergyStar-installed air conditioner
* High efficiency, top rated front loading washer/dryer
* Exterior is mostly paint-free stucco with impregnated color
* Interior walls feature paint-free venetian plaster or no-VOC paints
* Drought-tolerant, native landscaping
* Extra insulation (including 85% recycled demin UltraTouch)
We were careful to chose green products that would meet or exceed all of your expectations of design, comfort and function. We don't like compromises. What good is a stylish sofa that's uncomfortable? or a water efficient toilet that requires two flushes to work?! We're happy with the result, and we hope you are, too.
We are regular VRBO renters and Joe was by far one of the best hosts. He was very responsive to any concerns or items required. The house is extremely well stocked and organized. The area is quite and a nice base for our first trip to the Palm Springs area. We are a family with two seniors and three kids aged 6months, 5, 8. The house was safe and stocked for them and they really enjoyed the pool and outdoor area. Thank you Joe and Corey!
Quiet location, great house. Lots off space inside and out. The owners were quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.
Terrific and spacious home, owners were very responsive, nice quiet neighborhood, close to everything.
This was my friends and I first time visiting Palm Springs. This house was perfect even for a batcherlertte part :) The house was very fun and colorful. AMAZING beds. If you like late night fires, the fire pit was awesome as well. The only thing that was a bothersome was a little chuck of tile/seament was coming off by one of the pool lounge chairs....doesn't feel very good if you accidentally step on it. Other then that very pleased and would recommend to anyone looking for a great house for a reasonable price!!!
This is our third time staying at the house for our girls weekend. We love staying here so much that we plan our trip based on the availability of this place. It has everything we need. The beds are amazing!!!
This is our third time staying here. Joe is great and the house is awesome. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. We schedule our vacation based on the availability of this house. We will return next year!
