About Kristen Okimura

Our family lives near the beach in Southern California and we have always enjoyed going out to the desert to take in the heat and magical evenings.

Kristen Okimura purchased this house in 2013

Why Kristen Okimura chose California Desert

We purchased this desert home as a getaway for our family that we could share with others to enjoy. We are close to many attractions and restaurants, a perfect home base to explore the desert.

What makes this house unique

We love coming out to see what is in bloom and what is ripe on the fruit trees. We enjoy the peaceful feeling of our neighborhood, the view of mountains, amazing desert skies, sunsets, and stargazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house with very comfortable bedrooms, a great pool, nice garden and fun to cook/live in kitchen. Everything is well organized from the pool person coming twice a week, the gardener making sure the beautiful trees and plants stay nice and the monthly pest control. As clean as can be with everything working top notch. Moreover Kristen and her husband are always available for questions or others and they communicate clearly and in advance about everything. I heartily recommend this place and you'll love the outdoor lighting of the house.

Beautiful home rental in Rancho Mirage

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay here in this nice , well maintained Rancho Mirage home. Kristen, the owner is very assessable and accommodating. The home is supplied with everything needed for a nice vacation. The kitchen has eveything needed to prepare meals and entertain, the bathrooms are stocked with paper products, soap and towels and there are plenty of pool towels also.

We really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. It's well maintained and there's a nice shaded patio next to it.

This is a great place for having a group event. The open floor plan makes it possible.

We will definently be back!

My family had an absolute wonderful time staying in this comfortable and peaceful home. Loved the pool and back yard -- comfortable beds, and kitchen was terrific with everything we needed. We wish we could have stayed longer! We definitely will stay longer when return! Thank you Kristen for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home. Everything was terrific!

Great place for a relaxing family get together!

  • 5 of 5

The house has a nice open floor plan that was perfect for our family gathering. The yard and pool are well designed so we had shade in the hot afternoon. The kitchen was well equipped for entertaining. We were very pleased with the house, and would happily return! Kristin was easy to work with, and we had a great experience! Thank you!

Beautiful home in Rancho Mirage

  • 5 of 5

We spent one month in this home from mid Feb to mid March. What a nice, well appointed home. We loved the location and we loved loved loved the backyard. Being there in the springtime was lovely. The yard is filled with beautiful, different colored rose bushes and a wonderful orange tree. Each day there were 2 to 3 hummingbirds that hung around all day. The pool was lovely for those hot days and the spa was great after our long hikes. Plenty of games, books and Netflix to enjoy in the evenings. Nice neighborhood to walk around also. Kristen was so kind and easy to work with . I highly recommend this property!

Great stay in Rancho Mirage

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay in Rancho Mirage, this house is a great 3 bedroom home. It has plenty of space for a family or two couples. It has an updated kitchen that is perfect for cooking family meals. We stayed here for one month in October 2014 and we had no complaints at all. The owner Kristen was awesome and easy to work with. This is our 6th rental in the area and I can tell you from experience that you will not find a better home for the money. Great back yard for our dogs with lots of trees and grass areas and a great pool and spa. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Rancho Mirage.
