Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back to Casa Clara for many years. After owning and renting a number of different homes in the desert, we finally landed on this gem. The park-like atmosphere is very serene and the house is nestled in a quiet, safe neighborhood. We've found that the house is good fit for both old and young. There are lots of places both inside and out to sit and enjoy yourself. The separate wings in the house make it perfect for a variety of family members. Our teens were able to stay in their own wing and watch TV or play on their phones while the other wing slept soundly. We love the proximity to The River and a short drive to El Paseo. Nothing but positive things to say!

A Perfect Desert Oasis!!!

  • 5 of 5

I heartily agree with all the 5-star reviews here. If you're looking for a lovely, serene oasis in the desert, look no further. Casa Clara is even nicer than the pictures. We had a wonderful, memorable weekend with friends while attending the "OldChella" music festival (Dylan/Rolling Stones/Paul McCartney et al) at Indio which is about a 20 - 25 min drive from the house. The house is large, comfortable and very well appointed. It can easily accommodate two families (assuming that is agreeable with the owner). Casa Clara has a beautiful front yard, patio & courtyard -- that you'll rarely use -- only because the backyard is so nice: we loved the large, classic Palm Springs' amoeba-shaped pool! It was crystal clear & cool. Tons of shaded outdoor seating. (The spa looked great too -- we just never fired it up.) Wonderful outdoor grill, wet bar, large outside dining table. Ditto on the inside: large dining room & dining table, fully equipped kitchen, all the bedrooms were very comfortable. There's lots of places inside and out to curl-up with a book, hang out with friends...or watch the large flat panel TV...whatever is your preference.

Can't think of a nicer Palm Springs vacation home, and the owner, Clare, was a pleasure to deal with; our experience -- from booking, through our arrival & departure -- was seamless. We look forward to returning next time we're in Palm Springs! Thank you, Clare!

Awesome family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house! Our two daughters and their families came and we had a great time. The pool area was wonderful for the kids and the yard so spacious! We loved how private the house is and then the separation of the bedrooms made for complete privacy! It is so close to "the river".. Perfect location! Can't wait to come back again soon!

Loved this Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over Thanksgiving 2014 and loved it. It was perfect for the 3 families as they each had their own wing with bath with a huge living area in between. The backyard is beautiful with every kind of convenience and was great for the kids and the gated front was also very safe, never having to worry about the little ones taking off. It's close to hiking in the mountains, or shopping at the Rivers or on El Paseo. It has a very cool Spanish feel which you love in the desert. Clara was extremely easy to work with and very very user friendly. I highly recommend it and definitely hope to use it again.

What a wonderful home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Clara is the type of home that you dream of. It's spacious, immaculate & loaded with modern appliances and with a gorgeous interior design. It's a home that's been very well cared for, and the beautiful back yard makes you feel like it's just an extension of the home overall. The pool is large and the hot tub portion is lovely in the late evenings to relax in. Bedrooms have private patios and lots of room for your own quiet time. We opted to cook dinner in more than we planned, just to stay and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs with room to spare. Couldn't have asked for better accommodations, and the owner goes above and beyond, just like the house. Will definitely rent Casa Clara again!

What an amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I just returned from a stay at this wonderfully charming home in Rancho Mirage. The property was well maintained and clean and very centrally located with lots of things to do around the area. Our kids went to the movies and the arcade nearby. The backyard and pool were beautiful and it was like we were in our own little resort. We used the outdoor grill and the mini fridge outside next to the BBQ was a nice touch. This home provided a lot of space for our family and the bedrooms on opposite sides of the home gave an extra sense of privacy that was wonderful. Home was nicely furnished and decorated. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and serve our meals. We felt very comfortable during our entire stay and we would definitely return to stay again. Clare the owner was extremely gracious and always available if I had any questions. She made the rental process very easy. We had originally planned to rent another house but wound up renting Casa Clara instead but this turned out to be a much better fit for us. We will definitely be back!
