Expect a polite,respectful conscious human at ease with herself! I enjoy helping to insure others are comfortable and their privacy guaranteed!
Anne's Casita was perfect and Anne was an incredible host. She allowed me privacy and then connection when I needed it. She has created a soulful, sweet, and warm space that is welcoming and supremely comfortable. She knows the area well and is a great guide to the area. She has created a "secret garden" feel to the property. Fresh citrus trees and a beautiful desert landscape add to the delightful and peaceful environment. I can't wait to get back!
Wonderful place, wonderful host. So nice after spending a busy day running around the Valley to have a lovely, quiet place to relax. Anne was the soul of hospitality and the location was perfect. Very clean. Sitting out by the pool in the morning having a cup of fresh brewed coffee was the greatest.
The location was perfect, easy to get anywhere. Anne was a thoughtful host who respected our privacy but was available whenever we needed to be in touch. We go to the Palm Springs area often. Anne's casita is so much better than anywhere we've stayed before. Highly recommend this property.
Anne was great, the casita was beautiful, and the pool was perfect.
Yes, this was a 5 star experience for me. The casita was charming, quiet and clean. The photos online are accurate. I can't say enough about the location. Make sure to visit the Palm Desert park near city hall. If you're a shopper, it's only a walk to El Paseo (the Rodeo Dr. of the desert). You're lucky to have the most charming hostess. I hope to count her as a future girlfriend.
Was a fantastic place to stay. Great host, really enjoyed it. We stayed in the attached casita. Had a fridge for all our stuff, yes no stove / etc, but was not needed at all. Would stay again, one of the better airbnb places have stayed. Thanks again Anne!
Wow. This Casita was perfectly idyllic. My girlfriend & I stayed here for 4 nights during Coachella and couldn't have been happier. The Casita itself is immaculate, cozy, and full of all the needed accommodations + more. The pool is pristine, and served as a refreshing wakeup each morning. The garden/outdoor area is beautiful, with orange and grapefruit trees providing great shade, yet surrounding the pool is also lounge chairs to sunbathe and relax, as well an outdoor shower. The bathroom and walk-in closet is big and well stocked. The breakfast bar/mini kitchen has everything we needed (and more) and even has a hideaway stovetop that allowed us to cook up breakfast each morning before our long day at the festival. By the way, for those going to Coachella, the shuttle stop is only a 5 minute walk.
The host, Anne, is graciously accommodating. After coming a day early, and then postponing our arrival time twice, she nevertheless still met us at the Casita late at night (a little after 10pm). Throughout our stay she was always willing and eager to assist us in anyway possible.
Overall, I don't think our stay could have been any more comfortable. It was so enjoyable I think I may just need to reserve it for Coachella 2014! Highly Recommended! Thanks Anne! :)
Anne's place was perfect! It was very clean and conveniently located to stores and restaurants. Though we didn't get a chance to use the pool during our stay it looked perfect for staying refreshed in the heat. Anne was a lovely host and we would definitely stay in her casita again!

Anne's casita is a hidden gem tucked away in a quiet Palm Desert neighborhood, that is walking distance to El Paseo Avenue's boutiques and restaurants. Entering the compound is like walking into an Italian villa. The palms, olive trees, bouganvilla, pool, and terra cotta adobe wall take you away to Italy or Spain. The casita we stayed in was immaculate, cozy, bright and quiet, and had all the necessities like a refrigerator, crockery, cutlery, wifi, etc. The bed and bedding were like at home.
Anne is a wonderful host. She shared her knowledge of places of interest, restaurants, and in our case, a top-notch yoga studio that we visited several times during our stay. Staying with her felt like we were with friends/family. We highly recommend her.
We had a wonderful and comfortable stay with Anne, and are already making plans for our next visit.
If you are traveling to the Desert, DO NOT MISS the opportunity to stay with Anne and Cooper (her little dog). Of all the places I have stayed using Air BNB, this is by far my best, bar none! Her home and the Desert Casita is awesome, private and very comfortable and beautifully apportioned. There is even a nice sitting area outside to enjoy the backyard and pool while having fresh orange juice from her own trees. Anne also knows the area well with great suggestions on restaurants, bars and activities and if you are interested in buying or investing in a home or second home there, she can help guide you in more ways than you can imagine. Believe me, you WILL NOT be disappointed. Thanks soooo much for everything.
Anne allowed us to have a truly relaxing trip. she welcomed us upon our arrival and then gave us all the privacy we wanted the rest of the trip. there is plenty of sun in the backyard, fruit trees and birds singing their songs. Anne gave me wonderful suggestions for restaurants in the area, and was very clear in all of her instructions. What a fabulous host and a great first airbnb experience.
