About Sandy Stratton

We are avid golfers who enjoy the wonderful desert weather and resort living in the La Quinta/Palm Desert area. We know that you will have an enjoyable stay and enjoy the desert as much as we do.

Sandy Stratton purchased this house in 2008

Why Sandy Stratton chose California Desert

This property is well located with access to many, many public golf courses in the area. Downtown Palm Springs, The Indian Wells Tennis Pavilion, Indio Polo Fields, College of the Desert Weekend Street Fair, La Quinta Arts Festival, Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals are all nearby.

What makes this house unique

The home is made for 'al fresco' dining on a well appointed patio and pool area overlooking the golf course. Too hot? Just turn on the misting system on the patio and relax and enjoy the cool air. Float in the pool with your margarita while the steaks cook on the BBQ. Don't miss a game on TV while outside, just look up at the TV's on the patio.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week enjoying this home. It was perfect for our family of four. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. We thought the heat would be too much but the pool and mister made it just right! Everything was exactly as described. Thank you for sharing this gem with our family. 😃

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two months at Hale Sweet Hale. Love the location. View of the mountains. Outdoor space is incredible. Quiet neighborhood. Sandy and Ed are wonderful to work with. Very responsive to problems. They installed a new microwave and washer and dryer while we were there. The House is very well maintained. We would go back. PDCC is a fun course if you are a golfer.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2.75 months of heaven in this lovely home. It is well cared for, it is comfortable to the max, it has an up-scale kitchen and all the accoutrements. The pool and spa are wonderful and well maintained, as are the grounds. We would truly rent this home again. Adding to the above, the neighbors are super fantastic, welcoming not only us but our dog, too. We highly recommend this home for a stay in the Palm Desert area.

Relaxing, Private, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at Hale Sweet Hale! The property looks exactly like the pics, and the pool is amazing, with the golf course as the backdrop. Pool floats, bikes, towels all provided and the deck misters make a huge difference in 100 + degree heat. The property is only about 20 minutes from dowtown Palm Springs and an easy drive to many restaurant choices (if you choose to eat out because it's nice to have the option to stay in and use the renovated kitchen). The property is clean and well maintained with clear instructions on access and how to use the many amenities on the property. We definitely plan on visiting again...thanks for contributing to the fun and memories of our first visit to Palm Springs!

Best VRBO Rental Yet

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a handful of homes through VRBO and rental agencies. This is by far the best home of all the rentals we've experienced. The decor was very nice, the house was clean, there were plenty of linens & the kitchen was well stocked, not to mention the beauty outside. Although we were there in June and it was hot, the central air and misters outside kept things cool. We played in the pool and golfed our little hearts out. The price was more than fair for this great little house. We hope to stay again next year! We highly recommend this rental. Thank you Ed & Sandy!
