Why Bambi Bryant chose California Desert

Our family has been vacationing in the desert since we were young. It's a dream come true to have a home nessled against the mountains, with a private pool.

What makes this house unique

It's so quiet and it feels like your own private resort. There are great views from the front of the house. It's close to everything!

Amazing Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Trust the reviews! As a couple's retreat this is the BEST rental ever. We have stayed at a lot of vacation homes across California, none this well maintained and genorously stocked. Everything you need, and a ton of items we never thought we needed but enjoyed immensely! The central air is exceptional, my own home should be so comfortable in the summer. The hosts are equally amazing, the rental arrangements, checkin and deposit return all went seamlessly. We will stay here again most certainly.

My wife and I stayed here for a week and can't say enough about how nice it is. We've stayed at many Palm Springs area homes and this is by far the nicest. The pool area is to die for. Plenty private and when the waterfall is going, it sounds like you're off by yourself away from any city or other people. At night the stars are brilliant and it's so quiet you'd think you're out in the desert miles away from anything. The BBQ is great although if you haven't used one of this caliber before, be wary. It has a setting on it called SEAR that should be called INCINERATE. It's great for searing your steaks, but don't leave them on for too long or they're charcoal. Unless you like your steak well done, be quick.

The patio area and yard have plenty of shade throughout the day and more than enough loungers and chairs, all with pads. There are fans also on the patio to keep the air moving even in the hottest part of the day. They also supply plenty of pool floats/toys and towels. 2 tables under the fans for outside eating are also available.

Inside, it's also very nice. Comfortable seating for TV watching with Direct TV and a wood burning fireplace for the winter months. A nice dining and kitchen area for eating at home. There's gas stove and plenty of plates and glasses.

The MBR has a very nice king size bed that is super comfortable. There's an adjoining space attached to it that doubles as an office with built in bookshelves with lots of reading material. There is an overstuffed chair for reading those books there too. The room accesses the pool through a sliding door.

There's also a Jacuzzi tub in the Master bath. And plenty of bath towels too.

The garage is plenty big for your car and has the washer/dryer in it. There are 2 nice beach cruiser bikes that you can use too. You'll never have to run out and get paper towels, Kleenex or TP either since they have more than enough there for your use in the garage.

Like I said at the start, we can't say enough about how nice this place is and I think this review proves that. The location is good for going to either PS or La Quinta since you're about halfway between both.

The only negative I can think of regarding this home is that we had to leave. We'll definitely be back our next time in PS.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews don't lie. This home is well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. Our family had a wonderful 9 days here, enjoying the pool and backyard as well as all the area has to offer. Bambi checked in with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. We'll definitely be back.

A GREAT Stay in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Palm Desert for the first time this month. Bambi and John's home in Silver Spur Ranch was way beyond our expectations, it was the best. They have thought of everything, any of the cooking needs, we cooked at home a few times during the week. Even found a Steamer for the green beans my wife wanted for our dinner. The Master bedroom King size bed was awesome, pillows were great (this is important in my world) I enjoyed the 2nd bathroom walk-in shower while my wife liked the jacuzzi tub/shower in the master bathroom. The pool is really nice, pool floats all available for us to use. The BBQ Grill is a Weber, which makes things even better for those of us who enjoy cooking the protein for lunch or dinner. Internet worked great. We even walked to the Living Desert, another awesome experience. Having the Garage was great as well. Thanks to you both for making our visit a great one. We will be back for sure. K

My family and I recently rented Casa BJ and had an amazing time relaxing and enjoying this beautiful vacation rental. If you are looking for a place to stay in the desert this place comes highly recommended. We will definitely be returning to Casa BJ the next time we vacation in the desert.

Things to note:

The listing description was accurate re the location, layout, and amenities

The property was clean and well-maintained

Bambi provided excellent customer service

I would definitely recommend this property

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I -- and our dog -- totally enjoyed our stay here! The house is so well appointed, that you want for nothing! We stayed for 9 nights, but it is the kind of place that one could stay for many months and be comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plenty of linens, a washer/dryer, etc. Great outdoor space, with comfortable furniture, and both sunny and shady spots, and a BBQ. The backyard is totally private. It really wasn't warm enough for us splurge and pay to heat the pool, but it looked very invitinhg, and we hope to return in the future when the weather is warmer. The Silver Spur neighborhood is very picturesque, and a great place to walk, with a park nearby. The neighbors are very quiet, but totally friendly and welcoming. My husband walked to El Paseo one day (it is downhill), but a car is really needed, and great restaurants, shops, galleries, markets, and movie theaters are just a few minutes away. The owner, Bambi, couldn't have been more responsive or accommodating to our needs, and our deposit was returned as promised! We have been coming to the desert for years, and this is one of our favorite places, and very well priced for its size, amenities and location. We will be back!

Nearest Ski
100 Miles
Big Bear Lake Ski Area and ArrowHead
Car: necessary

We are located in the most amazing spot in the Coachella Valley, close to the Rodeo Drive of Palm Desert, all of the greatest shopping, bars and restaurants are near by. Golf and tennis abound-or like us, you might want to just hang out by the pool and not even leave. It's your choice. There is also culture, the Annenberg estate is 15 minutes away, and there are so many events, from film, to architecture, and are happening throughout the year-there is never a dull moment. Come to Palm Desert and have the time of your life, or relax for a minute, because you deserve it!
