  • Excellent Rental in Palm Springs

    "We have rented this home in the past. It is still well maintained, great for entertaining and relaxation plus the owners are a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this house to family or friends without hesitation."

  • Magical

    "Loved this place. Pictures don't do it justice. Very cool, clean and well kept. Way more amenities than we expected in the kitchen and bathroom! It was tough to leave after our stay."

  • Got Engaged, Married, Partied And Relaxed For A Few Days- And Never Left The Property!

    "First off- I never write reviews and I hate Yelp. However, I felt I had to share my experience here! I wanted to throw a surprise party for my girlfriend and I planned to ask her to marry me in front of about 50 of our closest friends and family. The second I saw this place, I knew that it would be perfect- to actually marry her THAT NIGHT! We love Palm Springs and all of the luxury the desert has to offer. We also love the country and horses. This was the perfect combination, and then some. The pictures look good on here but the beauty of Villa Sereno is hard to grasp in photos. Being there is the only way to truly appreciate just what an amazing place Steve and Diana have created. We stayed on the property for a few days after the party (she said yes!) and we felt like family by the time we reluctantly left. We got to know and love Carranza, one of the horses. She would come up to the patio and hang out with us for hours. There is something so peaceful and humbling being on the grounds and around the horses. We celebrated Mother's Day the next day and had Sally and Lori prepare a beautiful brunch for about 30 of us. Everybody was blown away! Steve even jumped on the grill to help out! Prior to brunch, we did Horsepower, which was such a unique and special experience for our family and friends. It's hard to explain it but you end up learning as much about yourself as you do the horses. The house and casitas are awesome, although we were never inside except to sleep. Everybody who stayed with us commented on how comfortable the beds were. We slept in the master and it was so cozy, we would have stayed in bed all day if we weren't so excited to get outside in the morning. The yellow Lab puppies, Double and Trouble were always a blast when they came around. I told Diana that she really should have a "dog deposit" because there was a chance they might be missing one! Sadie, their little dog, even slept with us on our last night! I have traveled the world and have stayed at some pretty incredible places. Villa Sereno left a permanent mark on our hearts and we are already talking about how soon we can get back. Also, my wife will not stop bugging me now about getting a horse.... thanks Steve! Diana, Steve, Kendra & Sally- Thank you for all you did to make this such an amazing experience. She said even if she would have planned it all herself, she wouldn't have done anything different! See you again soon!"

  • Perfect Desert Oasis

    "Very private beautiful home in the middle of Joshua Tree. Super close to the Integratron as well as many hiking and sightseeing adventures. If you want to forget about city living this is the place for you. Lovely views ALL around the home, we saw the most magical sunset and sunrises! The owner was VERY helpful, answered all my questions and accommodated all of my needs (including my dog!). There is surround sound inside and by the pool area as well, which made for a lovely day of grilling and eating in the sun. The home is decorated beautifully and the guest house has plenty of room. We really could not have asked for a better weekend and we are sad it's gone. We are already planning a trip back to this lovely slice of heaven in the desert."
