Great place. I would highly recommend it.
Serenity in the Desert
Typically in the desert, vacation rentals are some form of ultra contemporary. Maybe a bit cold. Casa Clara truly is a hacienda. We felt so comfortable - at home if you will. The landscaping is just as the pictures show. Greenscape rather than desertscape. We enjoyed sitting in the various areas of the yard as the sun moved. The owner, Clare, was so very responsive. In the planning stages and even when we had a question while there. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Hostess was very attentive and the home was in a great location
This house was fine for four ladies on a golf trip. Clara was wonderful about communicating and responsiveness!!! The house could use a little TLC when it comes to chairs, blow dryers, decor. It's just a tad 'tired'. We can't speak for the pool as we didn't opt to have it heated, but is sure looked refreshing. ;) The garage is attached to the house, but you can NOT access from inside, FYI. I went in trying to open the garage door so the car could be pulled in. oops! haha
Final note: There IS a city ordinance that is VERY strict on noise. No music is allowed outside at ANY time. There is an 800 # for complaints and the fine starts at $500. So, if you are planning to 'Partayyyy'?... look elsewhere. Us four ladies found the peace and quiet Juuuuust fine.
Thank you, Clara, for a nice stay!
Cozy and relaxing home. Enjoyed the privacy, pool, hot tub. Allowing our small service animals was a
Property was in an excellent location close to everything. It was a vacation for our service animals. Clean and relaxing.
Perfect, magical, relaxing getaway.
From the moment you enter through the charming wooden gate adorned with colorful bougainvillea, you know this house is special. The gate swings open to reveal a large, private, grassy area with a bubbling, three-tier fountain. A front porch with a dining table beckons from under a covered veranda, hummingbirds swarm a feeder. The heavy wooden front door swings open to a wonderfully comfortable Spanish-colonial-style home. It is in an ideal location for dining and shopping in an upscale Rancho Mirage neighborhood. The large, grassy backyard space has a lagoon-style pool with a raised spa and waterfall. A thatched roof cabana with a fan and lounge chairs provides relief from the sun. The whole vibe is that of the home of a prosperous, sprawling, ranch house in the heart of Mexico. The kitchen is well-equipped, and all of the bedrooms are situated to provide privacy and escape from others in the home. The area is ideal for walking with wide avenues up a slight elevation toward the south with a trail along the bottom of the mountain range. At dusk, the mountains are etched against an indigo sky.
The owner is extraordinarily responsive to any questions and concerns. The home has an excellent security system. We have stayed twice now during this fall and enjoyed every minute. It is exactly what we had envisioned as a completely relaxing, comfortable desert getaway.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, Stephanie! It was a real pleasure having you stay.
Great get away
We shared the home with another family - the split bedroom setup is perfect for traveling with teens or a second family. Clare was a perfect, attentive host. All questions were answered quickly. Home is well-stocked.
