Desert Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Vista del Monte was perfection. The pictures don't do the property justice. I can't wait for another retreat to the desert and stay here.

Perfect Casita!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Vista del Monte. It was a charming, authentic, and comfortable casita for our 2 week vacation in the desert. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we ate at the house most evenings, using the built-in BBQ to grill good meat and fish from Jensen's. We were lucky to be there to view the total lunar eclipse from the back garden....spectacular! And the plentiful lemons, grapefruits, and oranges from the trees in the garden were an added bonus!

Brandon, the owner, was most helpful and gracious with any and all questions asked, as was Tom, the property manager. It was the perfect place to stay for a desert vacation.

Thank you so much.

Vista del Monte was the perfect winter getaway for our family of five.

  • 5 of 5

The property is conveniently located to fine dining and excellent hiking. The house was stylish, manicured, clean and provided all the amenities one could want or need in a home away from home. It was just what we were looking for and the weather was great too! Thank you Brandon And Tom for being welcoming and caring hosts in Palm Springs!

Hidden Spanish Gem in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my grandmothers 94th birthday, my family had never been to Palm Springs before. This house was the perfect place to call home during our visit. It completely captures your attention once you step foot on the property, taking you away to a Spanish Oasis. The house is beautifully decorated in-theme and outdoors you have a wonderful view of the mountains, large pool and and gorgeous gardening. Highly recommend it!
