Gail was the perfect mix of attentive and hands-off. Her pool area was perfect for early morning tea and evening wind-downs. The fresh eggs were awesome! Close to major roads, but not noisy or busy. Will return when back in PS to visit my friends.

Gail was awesome! I'm a traveling therapist and often use Airbnbs as a back-up when my housing accommodations haven't been confirmed or aren't ready when I get to town. Gail hurried to get the place ready for my stay despite having evening plans with friends. Her place was comfortable, convenient and can't be compared to the other casitas in the area.

Gail's place is a great spot to stay in Palm Desert. She is a great host and the place is as the pictures show which is a great. Sometimes the pictures are not what is real... I would recommend staying here

Gail is extremely gracious and accommodating. Her casita has all the amenities needed during their time in the desert; it was the perfect size for two, with a king size bed that had the softest sheets. And the oversize flamingo float in the pool was fantastic. Thank you Gail for your true hospitality and kindness!

It was clear to us that Gail loves her home and enjoys hosting. Her casita was clean, very well-appointed and thoughtfully planned with everything you'd need, including the little-but-important things like a laundry basket, iron, and sugar for your morning coffee. She provided snacks, a fridge stocked with drinks, and even fresh eggs from her hens. The pool area was beautiful, lots of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine, and the pool was warm despite not being heated. Her ducks and chickens kept us entertained, happily clucking away in the coop. At times they were out in the yard, but mostly kept to themselves. The area is a nice quiet family neighbourhood a short walk away from El Paseo shopping district. We enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again! Thank you, Gail!

We stayed in Gail's casita for weekend 2 of Coachella as it is walking distance to one of the festival shuttle stops. It was really nice to have a full kitchen, comfortable bed and access to Gail's pool. The chickens were surprisingly quiet, at least in the mornings. Gail generously provided snacks and ample shampoo and conditioner, which is always a big plus.

This place was perfect for the two of us. We stayed here for Coachella and it is a short Lyft or about 15 minute walk to the Albertson's shuttle stop. Has a large comfy bed and everything you need in the kitchen. You should definitely be an animal lover, so many chickens, ducks, and turtles! We loved going out and feeding them. The casita is perfectly cooled after long days in the Coachella sun. I highly recommend staying here. Tons of snacks, drinks and FRESH EGGS!!! Thank you Gail!
