  • Amazing Property!

    Phillip S.

    "My friends and I loved staying at the Classic Spanish Retreat for the weekend. The property is spacious and charming, the pictures do not do it justice. I would highly recommend this to family and friends. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. I loved the privacy the Casita offered from the main house."

  • Lovely, comfortable house perfect for hanging out.

    Sebastian Stuart

    "We had a terrific time at this property! It has a wonderful pool and spa, and a very comfortable outdoor living room. It's equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The location is central but quiet, and was a great base for visiting Joshua Tree and going on hikes. The owners are thoughtful and helpful. We would certainly return. Highly recommended."

  • Amazing, wonderful home..Perfect!!

    Angela P.

    "As the other reviews say, this house is amazing and the pictures just don't do it justice. While there was only 3 of us, the layout is perfect for a larger group or multiple couples since one bedroom is on the other side of the house. The pool and hot tub are incredible and definitely worth paying for the pool heat in the winter. Clark responds immediately to any questions and was just a pleasure to work with. The backyard is totally private and the outdoor furniture is beyond comfortable. Made fresh juice in the mornings from the citrus trees. The location is just a few minutes from multiple stores so it was easy cooking meals there. The winter is a wonderful time to visit Palm Springs and we were swimming in the pool with 84 degree weather on Thanksgiving day!! The extra touches that I have not had in other rentals were there including lots of towels, soft sheets, comfortable beds and every kitchen utensil you need for cooking. The bbq was already hooked up to gas (have rented several homes with gas BBQ and propane tank is always empty!) You just can't go wrong with this home, we will definitely be back!!"
