About the property

View home, 2 bedrooms + convertible, 2 bathrooms, private back yard w pool / spa

Welcome to my home: Adobe Alegre, High up in the desirable Cathedral City Cove. Swim, hike, entertain, golf, or just relax and unwind. MAXIMUM RENTAL 28 DAYS.

The Adobe has had $18,000 in MAJOR improvements in the past year (!) including being completely repainted outside. There's also a new variable speed pool pump (much quieter) and BOTH AC units were just replaced along with easy to use Honeywell 9000 thermostats.

This comfortable 2 bedroom home features two suites. The upstairs master suite features a custom built Cal King bed, made from a 100 year old wooden gate from the far east, a complete bathroom with slate tile and large walk in closet. Just outside the master suite is the upper relaxation area with fantastic views across the Coachella valley. The smaller downstairs suite features a Cal King arts and crafts mission bed and walk in closet. The entire lower level is wonderful saltillo tile with berber carpet upstairs. And the house is beautifully finished. No white walls anywhere. Even the garage is tiled and stuccoed.

The kitchen is ready for the most demanding gourmet chef or casual cook. Featuring dark granite counter-tops, a NEW NXR 36" professional gas range with infra-red warmer, wine fridge, convection microwave, blender, coffee maker and every thing else you should need. Then get ready to enjoy the large antique dining room table with 8 chairs. Seat yourself and your guests using the bamboo place-mats, Dansk china and cloth napkins. Or dine al fresco at the poolside outdoor teak table with NEW center flame light.

The living room features a Pottery Barn queen sofa sleeper with an 8' thick mattress, wood burning fire place and 42' flat screen TV. There's a computer/ blue ray player (with a huge library) and high speed WiFi that even works outside.

Outside is where you'll be most. Relax in the salt water pool. Or enjoy the bubble jets in the separately heat-able spa. Surrounded by giant bamboo, ficus and plumeria, you'll can relax and do as you wish in utter privacy and peace. Enjoy watching the resident hummingbirds. Because of it's prime northern exposure, you can choose sun or shade almost every afternoon.

The Cathedral City Cove is uniquely settled up in the Santa Rosa mountains conveniently located just off hwy 111 between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. It's well known for its star gazing (there's no street lights allowed!) and incredibly quiet, peaceful nights. Hiking is a popular pastime as the cove sits adjacent to easily accessible trails that are lined with native cactus, smoke trees and fragrant wild desert sage. The front of the house faces the big horn sheep preserve in the Santa Rosa mountains. Cathedral City licence # 012723

About Dave Breckenridge

Growing up on a farm in Michigan gave me a love of the outdoors. Moving to California gave me a love a good weather! I work in San Francisco and spend as much time as I can in the desert at my Adobe.

Dave Breckenridge purchased this house in 2010

Why Dave Breckenridge chose Cathedral City Cove

This is not some rental house; this is my home. And the Adobe loves visitors, with or without dogs who'll respect that. You'll be immediately impressed by it's good looks and smart layout. It's meant for relaxation and recharging. If you're looking for a party house, please look elsewhere.

What makes this house unique

Located high up in Cathedral City Cove, it's the peaceful, beautiful house I always wanted. Just relax in the private back yard or enjoy by the fire in cooler weather. Every room is painted in soothing colors with quality furnishing and several pieces of original art. The Cove itself is wonderfully quiet at night and downtown Palm Springs is only 6.5 miles away. Close to golfing, hiking and all the Coachella Valley offers.

Most enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 1 toddler stayed here very comfortably. The property has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Dave is a gracious host and was easy to communicate with. We took advantage of the hot tub, pool, and washer and dryer. I would love to stay here again if we were ever in the area.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our little Golden Retriever, and I stayed at Dave's place in Cathedral Cove for one week and we really enjoyed it! Dave, as all the other reviews mentioned, is great! We communicated through texts and when we needed anything - big or small- he was available. The home has everything you need and his place is close to everything whether you are heading to Palm Springs or to Palm Desert.
