13 Palms is located in Cathedral City's popular upper Cove, it is private and relaxing and offers you the perfect vacation home in the desert.

This lovely, modern home is an oasis in the desert and is conveniently situated for central access to the airport, and only minutes from several golf courses, Mesquite Country Club, Palm Springs International, Tahquitz River Golf Course, and Indian Canyons. We have easy access to nearby Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, and Target and at the bottom of the hill, an IMAX theatre.

Three bedrooms, two with Queen beds and one with a California King Bed and 2 full baths easily accommodate our guests. One full bath serves two bedrooms, a Queen and a King, both are spacious and have 39 inch flat screen high definition Vizio televisions served with Direct TV. The King Bedroom also has a spacious sitting room and access to our beautiful private salt water heated pool. The second bathroom is a 5 piece bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate spacious shower and double vanity. It serves our large and well-appointed double queen bedroom. The room has a lovely gas fireplace for those cool evenings and mounted above it is a 50 inch Vizio flat screen Hi Definition TV served with Direct TV. This beautiful bedroom also has direct access to our covered patio and lovely salt water pool and has its’ own heating and cooling system. Cook in our beautiful and modern kitchen and enjoy dinner in the open dining area with views out to the masterfully landscaped yard filled with mature cactus and flowering greenery and our fabulous tall palms or step outside and cook on our infrared natural gas grill and enjoy dinner in the private courtyard just off our dining room.

In this newly renovated home, you can enjoy the privacy of your own suite and share our beautiful, open and well-appointed living room. Light the gas fireplace on those chilly evenings and sit back and watch the crystal clear 50 inch Visio Hi Definition flat screen TV over the fireplace. In the mornings take a swim in the pool, work out in our pool house we have converted to a practical and well equipped gym, then enjoy breakfast in the bistro area of our bright and inviting modern kitchen. In the evening, take your appetizers poolside and hang out in the comfortable shaded patio area while the day winds down.

Glimpsing the mountains across the pool courtyard and palm trees, you can plan your next day's adventures. That could be hiking on the nearby hiking trails, a bike ride along the desert trails, or a drive to one of the many nearby attractions. There is great bird-watching, for those so inclined, the hummingbirds are always around the yard and outside your windows and while hiking you can see Krestrels, Asian ring-necked doves, American and Lesser Goldfinches, and once in a while a roadrunner.

Relax after your day of desert adventures in our quiet and private courtyard. The completely fenced courtyard is beautifully landscaped, has plenty of comfortable lounging furniture, and the salt water pool is perfect for exercising or just a cool dip.

The Cove has no street lights in order not to obstruct the view of the clear night sky, and sometimes the silence is deafening, but we are not cut off from the world, the house includes wireless internet and Direct TV to all of our 4 large flat screen high definition TV’s.

Cathedral City Cove is uniquely complete in its own right and has a lot of nearby dining and entertainment. It is minutes away from the Palm Springs airport with easy access to the bars, and restaurants of Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tram is just minutes away.

Start your vacation day with coffee in the kitchen or on either patio, and then close it down with cool drinks poolside. With the entire Choachella Valley calling you, and a lovely home to relax in, we invite you to escape to the desert and enjoy what the beautiful Valley has to offer.

Why Ronald Lutz chose Cathedral City Cove

We love this area, it is a small town feeling with big city amenities. We love the desert and in particular the Cat City Cove. We have been searching for that perfect property for some time now and this one fits the bill. Spacious nice house with a secluded and private courtyard.

What makes this House unique

The views are fantastic here. There are no street lights and the night skies glisten with the stars. The neighborhood is quite and friendly, and it is so cool to be able to see the light at the top of the tram from our kitchen window and back courtyard.

                                                              Our family had an amazing time at this lovely home! Owner Ron was quick to respond and even sent friendly Mario out on New Years Eve Day to help us figure out the tv system. House is clean, with a convenient location (we went to Living Desert zoo, Children’s Museum and Panorama Park which are all within easy driving distance from the house). Grocery stores and restaurants are a quick drive away. Kitchen has everything you need to cook at home. Our four year old twins enjoyed the heated pool and spa every day! The backyard is fully fenced so our dog was happy too. Thank you, Ron! We hope to be back someday soon to enjoy your home again!

                                                              Wonderful vacation home in the Palm Springs Area

                                                              We spent the Thanksgiving week visiting Palm Springs and this could not have been a better home! The entire house and grounds were super clean when we arrived. All the beds were comfortable and we slept well after our hiking adventures. The modern furniture throughout the house were in new condition and everything looked awesome. Bathrooms were nicely updated and we had a good time cooking our Turkey in the kitchen. We can’t wait to be back to the 13 Palms!

                                                              Great cozy house!

The best part was having coffee and relaxing by the pool every morning and then enjoying the jacuzzi by night. What a pleasant stay not to mention the beds were so comfortable. We highly recommended this home !!
