Charming 550+ sq ft 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cottage at the top of Cathedral City Cove. You can prepare a meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, relax in front of the large surround-sound HDTV with Blu-Ray player with private WiFi-access. Settle into the comfortably appointed bedroom, furnished with a Queen-sized pillow-top bed, fresh linens, and a mirrored walk-in closet. There is also a large queen-sized air mattress and a single sofa-bed in living room for additional guests. Large bathroom with vanity and tub/shower.
15 minutes to downtown Palm Springs, 10 minutes to the airport, and 5 minutes to the IMAX & Mary Pickford Theaters in downtown Cathedral City...and amazing hiking in the San Jacinto Mountains is just outside your door!
Perfect for a romantic get-away or a business trip. Gay and straight-friendly. Your hosts, Steven and John, live next-door and look forward to welcoming you.
Minimum two nights stay. Happy to negotiate reasonable rates for any stay longer than 1 month.
Rates based on maximum of 2 guests.
***Rates do not include local Cathedral City TOT tax (12%) payable by check, cash or PayPal at check-in.
***Pets allowed by our approval only...depending on pet's age, maturity, size, and temperament.
Outside, you have access to the very secluded private backyard (you might, on occasion, see John landscaping or one of the cats lounging in the sun, but Steven travels for work and is rarely there). Besides the large salt water pool and therapeutic Jacuzzi hot tub enjoy the gorgeous landscaping, relax in the two-person hammock, take a nap in the restored 19th Century Chinese wedding bed, and grill a meal on the gas grill.
Interaction with Guests
John and I are social creatures who enjoy our privacy so we are very friendly, but never nosy or intrusive. In the 18 months we've been using AirBnB we've made some good friends, have had some wonderful conversations, and there have been many guests who we only saw when they checked in and never spoke to beyond a friendly 'hello'. We have created a space for our guests that we would want to retreat to after a long week at work. My point being...we allow our guests as much privacy as they desire. We hope you'll enjoy the cottage as much as we enjoy sharing it.
We want our guests to make themselves at home and enjoy the surrounding desert, mountains, as well as take advantage of the shared saltwater swimming pool and Jacuzzi hot tub!
We prefer that guests do not smoke inside out of respect for the guests that will be staying in the casita after them.
Pets are allowed on a guest by guest request only basis. Your animal should be well-trained, socialized, and housebroken.
Lovely place and people, great atmosphere!
One of the best Airbnb experiences we've had so far.Thanks Steven and John!
We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Johns und Stevens Casita. Everything was as described and even better!!! We had all the privacy we wanted, but we even had some nice talks to John in the garden (we saw Steven only once when he came back from a Business trip).
Everything in the Casita was clean and we had everything we needed. It´s in a wonderful and quiet neighborhood and just a ten-minute-drive from downtown Palm Springs.
We enjoyed the swimming pool and the garden, which is just wonderful with all those different flowers and decorated with much love!
When visiting Palm Springs next time we would love to stay here again!!!!!
Thank you, John, for a wonderful stay! As advertised, you are the perfect combination of warm and welcoming while respecting our privacy to give us the relaxing vacation we desired. The house was well-appointed and we were quite comfortable. Thank you again and best of luck with your move!
We enjoyed a lovely 4-night stay at the Casita at the end of March. We were welcomed upon our arrival were impressed with how much John and Steven have provided to make the place a great experience for guests. Be sure to check out the book collection--there's something for everyone, including a local hiking guidebook that we found very useful.
An oasis in the desert. Quiet and cute. Beautiful yard with pool, hot tub, and elegant landscaping.
We had a great experience with our visit. The pictures are exactly what you'll see in person. The hosts were very easy to communicate and flexible with check in/check out. We would definitely do a repeat visit the next time we're in Palm Springs.
Our experiance was great.steven and john made us feel very welcome,and any little requests we had were immediately taken care of.
i would stay with them again in a heartbeat :)
My partner and I have been together for over 9 years and recently renovated this property in the Palm Springs area. Having lived in San Francisco, New York, and Washington DC, favorite travel destinations tend to be large coastal cities; and rural Southern Italy. I love the desert because the people are so friendly.
We want our guests to feel at home, enjoy as much privacy as desired or let's share a bottle of wine while relaxing around our pool.
