About the Property
Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
My aunt and uncle homesteaded this land in 1948 and built the cabin, affectionately known as 'The Bird Cage'. Frequented by movie stars in the 1950s who valued its privacy, it's one of the last homesteads in our area.
The Birdcage has one bedroom with a new queen-sized bed, a bathroom with a good size shower, and a living/dining/kitchen room — all with beautiful views. The large patio is perfect for drinking morning coffee while the sun rises over the mountains, gazing at hawks soaring overhead during the day, or watching the Valley below transition from gold to pink as the sun sets behind you. And at night, the sky holds a canopy of twinkling stars.
With its proximity to nature, The Birdcage captures the ambiance of life in the Wild West, yet the restaurants and world-class shopping on El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of the desert) are just a 5-minute drive down the hill. Sublime and safe, the entrance to the property is secured by electronic gates and flanked by a beautiful stand of date palms.

Why the Owner Chose Cahuilla Hills, Palm Desert, CA, USA:
You feel worlds away from the congestion of the city. Yet it's only a 5 minute drive to wonderful resturants and shopping. The peace of having wide open spaces and a view of the valley below cannot be beat.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's fun to stay here, relaxing, exhilarating at the same time. You're close to hiking, town and all the amenities of the area, yet in this quiet beautiful setting. The city light view is so spectacular that you won't want to go to bed!! Ask about your dog. Dogs over two years old, well trained are okay. We are dog lovers!
