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 :)
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 (in winter, less in hotter seasons). This is on the 'honor' system, so all we ask is that you leave us the cash in your room when you check out.

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!
Great place! Very nice and easy to stay there. The hosts were accommodating with our late arrival from LAX. Super cute and fantastic decorated room. The weather was a little too chilly for swimming but we spent hours in the hot tub. We would stay again!
The listing description was very accurate but the pictures don't do justice to the cozy and clean feeling of the room - it was very welcoming! Highly recommend staying here as it's a nice distance from both Palm Springs and Joshua Tree, great spa, and flexibility with checkout time. Plenty of privacy, and private entrance is nice! Would stay again if in the area.
He is a great people. We arrived very late at 10pm. But he still wait for us. Thank u very much! The room is clean and totally as same as the pictures. The neighborhood is amazing! It feels like a Beverly hill in the desert! You gonna love it!
Raymond and William were fantastic hosts. They were genuinely nice and gave my wife and me our privacy. The bed was extremely comfortable and there were several amenities for us to use. The place is just as nice as the pictures suggest and sitting in the spa while looking up at the stars was amazing, and relaxing! It is ~20 minutes to downtown Palm Springs. Raymond and William also suggest several restaurants and local spots, which we appreciated. We would love to come back.
Raymond greeted us. There was miscommunication on when we thought we could check in so he stayed home most of the day waiting for us. We felt badly about that. He showed us around their lovely home and then to our own area which had a separate entrance. The room was exactly as pictured. A former closet area had a microwave, eating utensils, dishware, small fridge and coffee maker. Everything was extremely clean. The distance was 30-40 minutes from our friends' home so we left early and returned late so we weren't driving back and forth.
OMG! Seriously, you can't get any better than this place. It's own entrance and amenities galore. It is decorated so amazingly with charm and style. The hosts are nice and were 100% available. Everything worked great, the neighborhood is beautiful and the view when you walk to your car, stupendous! I'd definitely stay again.
William and Raymond have a nice home in a quiet neighborhood with no road noise. The room is super quiet and immaculate with great décor. With a private entrance directly into the room you can come and go without disturbing them. There is a hallway door into the main house to get to the outside pool and hot tub. A table and chairs in the room with a small refrigerator and microwave allows for relaxed eating. They have two friendly dogs and a cat that are restricted from your room by a hallway gate. The room has brochures on activities in the Coachella Valley. It is a quick drive to Desert Hot Springs and Palm Springs. We plan on staying here again next year.

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.
