About Sandy Stratton

We are avid golfers who enjoy the wonderful desert weather and resort living in the La Quinta/Palm Desert area. We know that you will have an enjoyable stay and enjoy the desert as much as we do.

Sandy Stratton purchased this house in 2008

Why Sandy Stratton chose Palm Desert

This property is well located with access to many, many public golf courses in the area. Downtown Palm Springs, The Indian Wells Tennis Pavilion, Indio Polo Fields, College of the Desert Weekend Street Fair, La Quinta Arts Festival, Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals are all nearby.

What makes this house unique

The home is made for 'al fresco' dining on a well appointed patio and pool area overlooking the golf course. Too hot? Just turn on the misting system on the patio and relax and enjoy the cool air. Float in the pool with your margarita while the steaks cook on the BBQ. Don't miss a game on TV while outside, just look up at the TV's on the patio.

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Our 3rd year staying at Hale Sweet Hale, two couples visiting from Ontario, Canada. Have fallen in love with Palm Desert, and this location is ideal for shopping, restaurants and day tripping. Try out Bouchee bistro for lunch; Mario's Italian Restaurant for dinner and Elmer's in Palm Springs for breakfast. The property is well maintained, comfortable, quiet and very private. Hosts Sandy and Ed have been very responsive, informative and friendly to communicate with. Day trips have included San Diego Zoo, Griffith Observatory in L.A., and Newport Beach. Would highly recommend this wonderful property for your visit to the Palm Springs area.. We'll be returning next year!

best rental on PDCC

  • 5 of 5

We've been guests at "hale sweet hale" for several years. The remodeled house faces the 6th fairway on Palm Desert Golf Course with the back patio and pool facing west.

Th 2 BR, 2 Bath house has all the modern conveniences including a full kitchen. The covered patio includes a gas BBQ pool and hot tub.

If your from up north this is the perfect place to soak up the sun and relax, play golf and forget about the snow back home.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week enjoying this home. It was perfect for our family of four. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. We thought the heat would be too much but the pool and mister made it just right! Everything was exactly as described. Thank you for sharing this gem with our family. 😃

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two months at Hale Sweet Hale. Love the location. View of the mountains. Outdoor space is incredible. Quiet neighborhood. Sandy and Ed are wonderful to work with. Very responsive to problems. They installed a new microwave and washer and dryer while we were there. The House is very well maintained. We would go back. PDCC is a fun course if you are a golfer.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2.75 months of heaven in this lovely home. It is well cared for, it is comfortable to the max, it has an up-scale kitchen and all the accoutrements. The pool and spa are wonderful and well maintained, as are the grounds. We would truly rent this home again. Adding to the above, the neighbors are super fantastic, welcoming not only us but our dog, too. We highly recommend this home for a stay in the Palm Desert area.

Relaxing, Private, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at Hale Sweet Hale! The property looks exactly like the pics, and the pool is amazing, with the golf course as the backdrop. Pool floats, bikes, towels all provided and the deck misters make a huge difference in 100 + degree heat. The property is only about 20 minutes from dowtown Palm Springs and an easy drive to many restaurant choices (if you choose to eat out because it's nice to have the option to stay in and use the renovated kitchen). The property is clean and well maintained with clear instructions on access and how to use the many amenities on the property. We definitely plan on visiting again...thanks for contributing to the fun and memories of our first visit to Palm Springs!
