My family and I have rented properties in the Palm Springs area for the pass 4 years. We like experiencing different properties every summer for the month of July. However, after renting Dessert happiness from owner, Cheryl, this is the first time my family unanimously agree to consider Desert Happiness as a returning location. The house is spacious yet cozy, the decor is nothing short of breathtaking. I appreciated Cheryl sharing personnel design choices with her guest. You feel as though you have rented from a friend.

Look No Further!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing desert vacation experience, look no further. We just completed our second extended winter stay in this beautiful home and are already longing to return. Days in the pool and spa, early evenings by the outdoor fireplace enjoying the spectacular mountain views, it truly doesn't get any better than this.

This wonderfully appointed and decorated home is located in a quiet secure gated neighborhood conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, golf courses and other desert points of interest. The size and layout was perfect for comfortably entertaining the many friends and family that visited both years. And lastly, working with the owner of this home was truly a delight.

I recommend you book this one now, it won't be available long.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home ... the month of July flew by so fast that our vacation ended before we knew it. It was everything we expected and far more. The pictures of the home are accurate however, to actually be there was so much more amazing. The home is tastefully decorated and everything was very very clean. Our children loved the beautiful pool and especially loved the little rock waterfall. We were on the go every day and coming home to this beautiful home and pool was so relaxing. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us and allowing us to have a very memorable vacation. We hope one day soon to return to Palm Desert and would love the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home once again ! Take Care Sharon, Devo, Jaydon & Destiny (Kingston, Ontario)

This property is exquisite as seen in the photos. The decor and furnishings are beautiful, the kitchen is modern and well equipped and all the TV, audiovisual, wi fi and phone equipment are first rate. We have rented many villas over the years and none compare with this for elegance and comfort. It is a few blocks from high end shopping on "EL Paseo" and great restaurants. It is a 30 minute drive to some great hiking trails and Palm Springs, and a few blocks from the zoo. The children enjoyed the pool and hot tub every day, and it got sun in the late afternoon in January. Although we were there in January we enjoyed sunny, hot days. There is a very sunny area in the front of the house for sunbathers. The evenings come early in January in Palm Desert, but the amazing and numerous TV's were a great hit. The kitchen is very well appointed and we shopped at the local supermarkets and ate in and BBQ'd quite often. One of the party is a golfer, which he did every day, amazing courses nearby, but the rest of us found lots to do, hiking, walking on El Paseo and taking the cable car up the mountain (which was actually like going back to Canada for the afternoon, icy and snowy, but a great view). We also spent a day at the Cabazon shoppping outlet. The villa is immaculate and the owner very helpful. I would certainly recommend this property, we all loved it.

Fabulous home and pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great stay in this property in April 2011. It lived up to everything it said in the ad. All the finishings in the home are first rate and the home was a pleasure to stay in. The pool, yard, patio and hotub were also wonderful. The owner and property manager were freindly, professional and very easy to deal with. We will come back again!
