Sedalia, MO

Hostess was very attentive and the home was in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This house was fine for four ladies on a golf trip. Clara was wonderful about communicating and responsiveness!!! The house could use a little TLC when it comes to chairs, blow dryers, decor. It's just a tad 'tired'. We can't speak for the pool as we didn't opt to have it heated, but is sure looked refreshing. ;) The garage is attached to the house, but you can NOT access from inside, FYI. I went in trying to open the garage door so the car could be pulled in. oops! haha

Final note: There IS a city ordinance that is VERY strict on noise. No music is allowed outside at ANY time. There is an 800 # for complaints and the fine starts at $500. So, if you are planning to 'Partayyyy'?... look elsewhere. Us four ladies found the peace and quiet Juuuuust fine.

Thank you, Clara, for a nice stay!

Perfect, magical, relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter through the charming wooden gate adorned with colorful bougainvillea, you know this house is special. The gate swings open to reveal a large, private, grassy area with a bubbling, three-tier fountain. A front porch with a dining table beckons from under a covered veranda, hummingbirds swarm a feeder. The heavy wooden front door swings open to a wonderfully comfortable Spanish-colonial-style home. It is in an ideal location for dining and shopping in an upscale Rancho Mirage neighborhood. The large, grassy backyard space has a lagoon-style pool with a raised spa and waterfall. A thatched roof cabana with a fan and lounge chairs provides relief from the sun. The whole vibe is that of the home of a prosperous, sprawling, ranch house in the heart of Mexico. The kitchen is well-equipped, and all of the bedrooms are situated to provide privacy and escape from others in the home. The area is ideal for walking with wide avenues up a slight elevation toward the south with a trail along the bottom of the mountain range. At dusk, the mountains are etched against an indigo sky.

The owner is extraordinarily responsive to any questions and concerns. The home has an excellent security system. We have stayed twice now during this fall and enjoyed every minute. It is exactly what we had envisioned as a completely relaxing, comfortable desert getaway.

Great get away

We shared the home with another family - the split bedroom setup is perfect for traveling with teens or a second family. Clare was a perfect, attentive host. All questions were answered quickly. Home is well-stocked.

Great communication, beautiful spot

Clare was great throughout the process and the home was perfect for our golf weekend. Quiet neighborhood and a beautiful outdoor area to grill and sip a cocktail.

Would return again anytime.

Amazing sanctuary in the heart of Rancho Mirage!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from another incredible stay at Casa Clara! We thoroughly enjoyed lounging in the private backyard by the pool and lounging under the palapa. I am not sure why I have not written a review sooner as this property is a real gem! We love having breakfast on the front patio by the fountain and watching the humming birds. The misting system makes all the patios very comfortable during the crazy summer heat. We hardly went out and grilled outside most evenings. Can't wait for our next trip! Thanks Clare for always being so accommodating and gracious.
