About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

Gorgeous 'resort' style house on a half acre of manicured grounds and pool that will keep you entertained day or night. Located in an almost secret canyon high above the valley floor in a very desirable neighborhood.

Please read this entire description to find all the information including accurate pricing.

There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The rooms are all average to large in size and are well appointed with quality bedding. The master bedroom has a King size bed, 3 rooms have queen size beds, one room has two twin size. There is also a 'trundle' bed (two twins) in one of the bedrooms.

The kitchen is light and bright looks out at the pool, and is big enough to have people hanging around while you cook. The kitchen has gas cooking, dishwasher , refrigerator/freezer , ice maker, microwave, toaster, blender, 2 coffee makers and a host of gadgets and cookware .

Two eating areas, one inside seats 8 , the other on the patio that seats 12.

There are two barbeques. One charcoal and one gas.

A comfortable living room, with soft leather furniture and a 50 inch

flat screen TV along with BlueRay and many choices including Netflix,Pandora,Utube

etc. There are tv's in two bedrooms as well.

The custom swimming pool has a 45 foot lap lane, a beach entry and is surrounded by natural granite boulders. A raised spa with a waterfall spillway.

There is also a 7' waterfall fountain feature adjacent to the pool.

We are close enough to make it easy to go to either Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert for meals, entertainment and activities. Central Cathedral City is just a few minutes away and offers an IMAX Theater, a multi-screen theater,

miniature golf, shopping (Target, Trader Joe's etc.) and some really great dinning...try ' La Tablita' for a great Mexican meal and margarita! Also a great Sushi place 'Dragon Sushi' and a new treasure 'Bonta'. A great menu, full bar in a beautiful space and the food is delicious !

If you like to hike and explore natural trails, you can literally walk out the front door and hit the trails that access the beautiful 'Santa Rosa Mountains National Monument'. There are miles and miles of trails and canyons to explore.

The Monument is home to an endangered species of Bighorn Sheep, and if you are lucky, you may spot one or more of these magnificent creatures.

Easy to get to town, yes..but many of our guests just want to stay at the house and 'hang out' ! It is so quiet , tucked away above the valley floor, you don't hear the incoming airplane or highway traffic.

A perfect 'HIDEAWAY' , for those that don't want to be disturbed.

The landscape and property walls assure a secure and PRIVATE stay.

About Dean Porter

I moved to the desert in 1985 and fell in love with the mountains and the wide-open spaces here, not to mention the unbeatable sunshine! This is the place I call home.

I have spent many years creating this place and am

delighted to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Dean Porter purchased this house in 1990

Why Dean Porter chose Cathedral City Cove

The location is unbeatable for quiet and a sense of security without having to go through gates. The extra large lot affords the space for an extensive garden to

relax in and wander through.

What makes this house unique

I have been in the area for over 25 yrs and

I can honestly say there is no neighborhood

that compares when it comes to seclusion,privacy and serenity! It is so quiet here I can listen to the birds sing every morning. Airplanes and highways are out of ears reach! The mountains are literally right out the door making hiking and exploring a real treat. Nothing like a soak in the spa/jacuzzi after a nice climb in the mountains.

A perfect serene oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The property is even better than the pictures portray! We stayed at the house for bachelorette weekend getaway and all the girls absolutely loved the house. Tons of bed options and everyone had their own bathroom too. Great for getting ready to go out in the evenings:) The pool is amazing and the house comes with beach towels, which was nice not to have to pack. Dean and Todd were wonderful to work with too and could not have been more accommodating for our group. Needless to say, our experience was top notch and we highly recommend the house!

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was, by far, the most incredible property I've ever stayed at. You can really tell a lot of love went into this home and into making it a true paradise. The owners are incredible and the directions and details were very specific and clear so we knew how to access everything we could possibly need or want. We had a large group with plenty of options for sleeping arrangements. There were even a couple of rollaway beds available, which I found cozy and comfy. Honestly, there was not one negative aspect of our stay and we can't wait to return!

Oasis is right!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this little gem in the desert. I've stayed at Dean's place for 4 years every April now. Each year I'm so sad to have to leave.

The pool is beautiful and exquisitely maintained - always clean and the perfect temperature. It always becomes the focal point for our gatherings there with everybody hanging in and around the pool. There's also a beautiful yard with plenty of room for games and a hammock that's perfect for sitting back and soaking in just how lovely the property is. The rooms are spacious and clean offering both privacy and a communal feel. The kitchen and patio just outside of it also become popular hang outs for our friends.

Also, Dean is an excellent host. In fact, it feels funny to call him a host because at this point he totally just feels like a friend.

All I have to say is I will 110% be back next year and I'll basically be counting down the days until we can return. :)

Perfect for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with our grown family, 3 kids with their spouses/fiancé, and our 9 month old grandson. The whole package with the house, 5 bedrooms, pool and hot tub and the beautiful yard were just right for our size of group. It isn't within walking distance of any restaurants or grocery stores, but being right on the edge of the city was very peaceful and a 10 min drive would get you anything that you needed, including to the airport. Enjoyed a great hike into the hills that started about a block from the house. Great views of the city and valley. We spent some days at the house and others at local attractions. Dean and Todd were great. Responded immediately when we plugged up the garburator. We mentioned to Todd that we were bringing a 9 month old. He went out and bought a new high chair that was perfect for our grandson. We stayed for 9 nights and really hated to leave. Everyone in the group said they would like to return.

Property is spacious and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! We had six adults and three kids, and we had plenty of space. Children loved the pool. Took advantage of the amazing hiking outside the front door. The house had everything we needed, very clean and comfortable. We will be back!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Me and a group of girls recently stayed here for my sisters bachelorette party and our experience here was amazing. We never left the house except for maybe a store run but other than that everything we needed was provided. My sister (the bride) was very pleased in the house selection since she was not in control lol. We'll be talking about this for a long time I'm sure. Thank you so much Todd and Dean!
