Breathtaking views from your own gated backyard sanctuary. Enjoy the resort-like refuge of this quiet, desert cove neighborhood. Lots of room for Fido to run on the cool grass that surrounds the heated saltwater pool and spa. Come inside to the tasteful mid-century comfort of our two bedroom, two bath home complete with family room that can serve as a third bedroom. Relax in front of the beautiful limestone wood-burning fireplace or the big, flat-screen television. Top it off with free wireless DSL and you have a vacation getaway that will be hard to get away from.

Cathedral City Cove is a charming, quiet, residential neighborhood situated between old Palm Springs and tony Rancho Mirage. Just minutes from our home you can catch a great supper club show by renowned Las Vegas performers; dine on world class cuisine; ride to the the top of the world on a world famous tram; golf, play tennis, shop -- or just lay low and enjoy the stillness of the desert.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful hospitality we experienced from both of you. From the first emails back and forth while we got to know each other to the moment we set foot inside your lovely Palm Springs home. We felt so comfortable and “at home”.

Our dogs loved the pool, our souls loved the quiet neighborhood. It was both a relaxing and invigorating holiday.

Your home was extremely well appointed, and so central to everything in the valley. We are looking forward to coming back for many years! And we hope to stay at your ‘Cove Dwellers’ retreat!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and understanding as we dealt with one of our very ill dogs. Your thoughtfulness and help with referring the veterinarian was so very appreciated.

This was our first year of having an extended stay in a warm climate and I am so thrilled we found your lovely home and met you both.

Hopefully for many more years to come! Thank you again for a super holiday…..Bring on the winter! So we can come back!

2 week stay

  • 4 of 5

We are just ending a 2 week vacation. This home is dog friendly with a spacious back yard.

The kitchen is well equipped and suited our needs perfectly. The gas grill was a bonus.

Very convenient to everything and walking distance to a nice theatre a restaurants.

Quiet and comfortable. We will be back - hopefully with friend/family!

Two months of fun and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 2 months and had many friends and family visit over that time. We arrived a bit early and had a chance to meet the owners. Anytime we had questions or concerns they were their for us. The property is exactly as described. The highlights are the yard/pool/spa which provided many hours of fun for all (including our two black labs). The yard is secure and private and the neighborhood is quiet. The location is perfect for newcomers to the area and it is easy to get wherever you need to go. I would definitely recommend this property to friends.

All the comforts of home and then some. Neat, clean, functional, private and quiet. Great backyard pool and jacuzzi. Even the towels were exceptional. Terrific location, too, close to Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs. We had a wonderful stay over New Years.
