About Kerrie Pennington-Roque

We are a family with two growing boys and a little girl, and love to spend time together doing activities and relaxing.

Kerrie Pennington-Roque purchased this house in 2007

Why Kerrie Pennington-Roque chose Desert Hot Springs

We love the desert as a vacation spot for our family. Our family and friends enjoy swimming, walking/hiking trails, dining at the great restaurants nearby, golf and relaxing. Desert Hot Springs is close to everything including the city of Palm Springs and we find that we have all we need for a great vacation at our vacation rental home. The view of the mountains and the stars at night is gorgeous. We love it, and you will too!

What makes this house unique

The greatest thing about our vacation house is the space. We like to invite friends and family to join us, and the house and backyard is very spacious so there's plenty of room for us all.

Our favorite thing to do at our vacation home is use the private saltwater pool and spa. For dinner we like to BBQ using the charcoal grill, and put on the firepit, which really extends the evenings. The view of the mountains and the stars at night is spectacular from our backyard.

Close by are lots of activities including golf, hiking in Joshua Tree, great shopping and lots of choices for casual dining or fine dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kerrie!

We just left your awesome house. I want to thank you for such a thoughtfully well-stocked and welcoming space. It was perfect for our two families, exactly what we were looking for. We had to lie, steal, beg, plead, cajole and finally blackmail the kids to get out of the pool this morning.

We'll definitely be back!

Worked well for us

  • 5 of 5

What can we add to the praises of others? Here's why this property worked so well in our situation.My husband and I, our daughter-in-law and her Parents needed a place to stay for our visit to CA to welcome our son home from his deployment in Afghanistan at 29 Palms Marine Base. After searching on VRBO website, this property seemed best to suit our needs & budget.

Upon our arrival, we walked into a well maintained, very clean home which was even more comfortable of a home than we ever expected. We mostly enjoyed the backyard, the game table and the open spaced kitchen and living area. The work station was perfect for my daughter-in-law who needed to tend to studies during our stay. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable we all have ever enjoyed, especially away from home. This made it a little more difficult to get out of bed, though!

The communication between all parties (myself & Carrie) was excellent! Phone calls and emails were answered promptly and all questions were addressed immediately.

Needless to say, we were all truly thrilled with our lodging experience and would highly recommend this property to anyone who is searching in this area. Thank you Carrie.

Great and convenient house

  • 5 of 5

Great house! It has everything as described and more. It's in a nice and quiet neighborhood, close to shops, Joshua Tree and nice trails. The house was great for our family of 6. Kids loved the foosball! The owner is extremely communicative, accommodating and responsive. We'd come back again in a heartbeat!

Best Family Vacation Home in Desert Hot Springs

  • 5 of 5

We found the ideal family vacation home and enjoyed a perfect month of swimming, soaking in the hot tub, sun bathing and just living like at home. The family of seven consists of Grandma, Grandpa, Son & Daughter in Law and three Grandchildren, twin boys of age 6 and a Grand Daughter of 2 1/2. All had a great time with lots of space in the well equipped house with all the amenities, entertainment and sleeping facilities needed. Everything functioned perfectly and when the storm damaged the internet it was fixed immediately and worked better than before. Instructions provided by the owner for the operation of TV's, Internet, phone's and the pool and hot tub are comprehensible and easy to follow even allowing Grandpa to operate everything. The house was exceptionally clean and in great condition and we would recommend this house to any Family for an extended Vacation in Paradise.

Family trip

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six with 1 grandchild who had just turn two. We were looking for a place for all of us to come together and to relax and enjoy each other's company. The Desert Sun home was perfect for us. Kerri, was so pleasant to work with and was on call to answer any questions we had. This location was peaceful, close to grocery stores, restaurants, and other interesting things to do, which Kerri had complied for us as well. We loved the openness of the home and of course the out door area around the pool. From the lounge chairs by the pool, jacuzzi and conversation area in the shaded porch, to lounging inside, playing with kids toys and books with grand child, watching Sling & Hulu, there was something for everyone. It was so nice not having to worry about bringing everything for the grandchild (crib, high chair, plates, utensil, sip up cups, step stools) and the house being child friendly was a relief. They had LOTS of inside toys and pool floats ready for use. Having the washer and dryer available was a plus too for a large family group with a little one. The kitchen was also well appointed and had everything we needed to make and serve our family style dinners. There were plenty of pool towels, bath towels and linens. The bath rooms were detail with soap and shampoos, Kerri had thought of everything. Thank you again for being such a gracious Hostess.
