If you are planning on using the BBQ grill during your stay, please let us know before you book so that we can add an additional $20 (to cover the cost of propane) to the total.

Once you have a confirmed booking, please let me know what time I can expect you to arrive so that I can plan to be available to check you in.

We had a great time at Bob's place in Cathedral City, relaxing by the pool and BBQing! He was super responsive throughout the entire process - from booking until the day we left. Everything was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Would definitely stay again!
Lovely spot to relax by the pool! Highly recommend this comfortable and convenient home.
Bob's place was terrific, beautiful and welcoming. It was the perfect little home away from home and our host was excellent as well, opening his place to us and being very accomodating with our early departure. Would definitely stay again.
Visited Bob's home for Coachella weekend 2. The drive took us about 30-40 minutes to get to the festival each day. Bob did also help some of my unlucky friends secure tickets after they missed them in the sale, which was awesome.
Slept a group of 6 extremely comfortably, and Bob even had an air mattress which we didn't even use. All of the 3 bedrooms are nicely decorated and there are 3 full bathrooms.
The house was very clean upon arrival. Bob met us at the house for check in and gave us a tour. The lock system at the house is great for a group.
The kitchen was nice and had all of the essentials. Several TVs throughout the house.
Last but not least, the pool area is the highlight of the home/the place we spent most of our waking hours. Has plenty of lounges for tanning and shaded areas for those who would prefer not to. We also used the grill several times during our short stay which was great.
Would highly recommend his home to visitors to the area.
Bob, was great, he made every effort to get us in the house before the check in time. The house was clean and well represented in the listing. We would stay here again!
