We live in a new residential development of 3-bedroom homes in a gated community. There is no public transportation near the property, so you will need a car. The neighborhood is very quiet - you will definitely get a good nights sleep here! If you are a nature lover, you'll love it here. Great views of the mountains and the desert, and especially the stars at night! Low light pollution allows for incredible star-gazing at night.
Friendly gay hosts (monogamous couple).
Need a haircut? Raymond is a licensed cosmetologist! Haircut only $20.
Weather: Fall and Winter are picture-perfect gorgeous (unless there is a rare Pacific storm blowing through); Spring is nice but can be windy; Summer is hot, but 'it's a dry heat.' We run the air conditioner all summer and it's really not that bad. We love it here all four seasons!
Pet lovers: two indoor cats and two small dogs. Sorry, no pets allowed in the room. Our animals are very territorial, and we try to keep the room pet-free for our guests :)
Spa/Hot Tub Policy: Due to the high cost to heat the spa we are asking for $5 per hour of use, not including the time it takes to heat up. It takes about 45 minutes to heat up. This is on the 'honor' system, so all we ask is that you leave us the cash in your room when you check out. The spa pump is right outside our bedroom window, therefore we ask that you use the spa between the hours of 7 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. only. Thank you! Pool is not heated, but is comfortable to use in the Summer.
The house has solar panels, William drives an electric car, and we recycle!
Special note: Many of our guests report feeling especially rejuvenated and rested while staying at our place. This is not accidental. We utilize a technology called "Safe Space" in our home that is designed to re-pattern the electromagnetic frequencies (EMF's) found in the environment (radio, cell, wireless signals, etc.) and neutralizes their negative effects on our human energetic/auric system. Result: EMF protection, increased life force, and enhanced clarity. You can search the internet for Safe Space to find out all the technical details if you like. Bottom line, our space is REALLY special, and we want you to enjoy your stay with us! :)
Smoking outdoors only
No glass in pool area
No illegal drugs
Limit two adults over 18
No pets allowed, sorry.
Please be mindful of our very friendly indoor cat (Benjamin) who will want to make friends with you and sneak out your door if you leave it open :) and our newest addition "Bella" our small Chihuahua who gets excited when we have visitors :)

Parking: The Homeowner's Association has requested there is no over night parking permitted on the street. Please park your car in the driveway on the extreme right hand side (so a car can get out of the garage on the left side) overnight. It is okay to park on the street for a limited time during the day. Park legally, i.e., with the right side of the car on the right side of the street.
If for some reason you need to park your car overnight on the street give us advance warning so we can 'safe-list' your car. Thanks!
I would definitely come back to this room. I met one of the hosts upon arrival and took a tour of the house. The room is exactly as advertised. The bed is comfortable. I never heard the dog bark during my 3 days there. The neighborhood is very nice and peaceful. Thanks guys!!!
Raymond and William made us feel right at home. The room is fantastic - a nice sized bed, a flat-screen TV, an attached walk-in closet/make-shift kitchen/microwave section + attached bathroom/shower. You have your own private entrance and the room is decorated in classic 80s rock albums. Although I didn't explore the rest of the house, we were given a tour and I'm sure we would have enjoyed the spa (pool and sauna) section. We will definitely come back here again in the future next time we're in the area.
Simply the best. Raymond and William are amazing hosts. The place was like a hotel but better. Hands down, they are BnB pros. They even had brochures and lists of places to go the on the nightstand. My boyfriend and I tried a handful of restaurants Raymond and William recommended and they were great! I was in awe of their property. The neighborhood is quiet and the view when you step outside the house is spectacular. It's truly a diamond in the desert. I will for sure come back! :)
Raymond and William were great hosts! The neighborhood is a small quiet community overlooking the beautiful Desert Hot Springs area. We only stayed one night but the room was great -- large, private, and comfortable. So comfortable in fact, we slept for 15 hours!!
Thanks for a great stay!
We had a short stay in DHS and loved our hosts. They checked us in and out and were so friendly.
Nice and clean with a private bath and you have your own entrance to the room which is handy.
We really enjoyed our stay at Raymond and William's place! It was every bit as great as the description, making our Palm Springs vacation one of our most memorable! We can't wait to return. The area is great for all kinds of day trips, and when you get back, your restful night's sleep preps you for the next day's adventure. Thank you, guys!

William and Raymond are a gay couple who live together in the Desert Hot Springs property (not the Palm Springs apartment or luxury home). William loves to travel (he's been to London (and all around the British country-side), Amsterdam, Sydney, Puerto Vallarta, Paris, Egypt, Costa Rica, all over the U.S., etc.), loves reading, works at a local university, and is vegan. Raymond loves music (Grace Jones, Cher, Nina Hagen, Boy George are among his favorites). Both love to exercise, socialize with friends in Palm Springs, and watch movies together.
