About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Casa Dashley is unlike any other home in the surrounding area. This 2800sf 5 bedroom, 4 bath energy-efficient home was originally built and personally remodeled by us (Danny and Ashley) as our primary residence (4 bedroom, 3 bath main house, plus detached 1 bedroom 1 bath casita). All bedrooms are generously spaced apart from each other providing excellent separation and privacy, making it perfect for large groups or couples (there is only one bedroom that shares a wall with another bedroom). And the attention to detail and quality throughout the home truly sets it apart in a league of its own. From the design of the finishings, to the custom made artwork commissioned specifically for the home, everything about Casa Dashley was meticulously selected to provide the perfect cohesive warmth and sense or relaxation that you will feel from the moment you walk in. This is truly a special home and has been given the utmost attention and care to make it the best it can possibly be and is unlike most other vacation rentals you will see.

The secure and dog-friendly rear yard is your own private spa-like resort with a lagoon-like salt water pebbletech pool/spa, custom designed firepit and seating area, hand-woven hammock, and lush tropical landscaping. This is your retreat to relax, sit back, and completely unwind. At night, you can gather around the firepit, cook s'mores, or enjoy a beverage while just taking in the serenity of the space.

If golf or tennis is on your to-do list, as a Casa Dashley guest you will have the unique privilege to access all the facilities of the renown and private Mission Hills Country Club at the member's guest rate, which includes 3 championship golf courses (one hosting a women's major championship each year), 34 tennis courts (including hard/grass/clay courts), pickle ball courts, bocce ball courts, fitness center, spa, and 7 croquet courts, all located only 8 minutes from the home (see the "Owner Info" section for more details).

In the interior of the home, there is a fully stocked cook's kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances, cutting board island, almost every cooking gadget/utensil available, and a custom-designed liquor bar cabinet with color-changing LED lighting. At night, various art niches and custom lighting throughout the home make it transform into an entertainer's paradise. There is a ping pong table to enjoy at the rear yard and a pool table in the main house. Each bedroom has it's own large flat-screen & iHome, there's high speed wifi throughout, access to a house iPad, Sonos stereo surround sound throughout, Netflix, and a land-line with free long-distance to the US & Canada. All mattresses are of the highest quality and sheets are of the highest thread-count.

No expense has been spared. Every detail has been attended to. The only thing this home needs is YOU!

About Danny Grisa

Born and raised in the Palm Springs area, we've seen it transform from a sleepy retirement community to a luxury 2nd home and golf destination. I've always been very into golf, and love it for that, and both Ashley and I enjoy it for it's more relaxed pace, great winter weather, and summer pool parties! All year round there is something the desert brings to the table, and we love it for that.

I've personally remodeled Casa Dashley and have spared no expense making it into the best home, and vacation rental, it can be. We are both well-traveled and have taken everything we've learned from staying elsewhere to make Casa Dashley the best possible experience it can be. No corners have been cut and everything has been upgraded to the max! Ashley and I are honored to share it with you whenever we're not here so that you can enjoy it too! We are currently on a multi-year world trip, so our assistant Natellie is helping manage it while we're away and will likely be your primary contact. We truly truly hope you enjoy the Casa and have nothing but absolutely the best time.

Danny Grisa purchased this house in 2012

My friends and I stayed at Casa Dashley for my Bachelorette weekend! The house was set up perfectly and had everything you could ever need from wine openers to clothing steamers to pool floaties. We had so much fun laying by the pool and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the Palm Springs area for a weekend getaway!!

it was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

The stay a the Csaa Dashley was incredible - it was very private and an oasis that was wonderful to be a part of. The layout was just perfect and it was exactly as was in the pictures. The place was just a perfect 10 in that it provided a great combination of privacy and the layout was just what the doctor ordered!! It had the 5 bdrms and 4 bathrooms that were on the file but they were the perfect combination to have some number of people staying although we only had 3! It was the perfect place to entertain and have some guest come to party with us and the pool table was a lot of fun.. The pool was wonderful and the backyard was completely private. The kitchen was just terrific and had everything one could ask for... it is hard to say more about this place - we want to stay again next year...

Surprise Birthday Party

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a second weekend to through a surprise birthday party for my Husband. It was perfect place to have a family gathering and let loose birthday party. The pool table room was spacious and a perfect place to gather for drinks, laughs and some late night dancing. My kids made use of the large bedrooms to play dolls and loved movies on the large tv's in each room. It was great to have music through out the house in the earlier part of the night and then to be able to section it off in the later part for kids to sleep. The mature trees and luscious landscape provided lots of privacy. The kitchen was fully stocked and provided everything we needed to throw this awesome party. We can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Excellent Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casa along with several family members who all came in to town to see my daughters dance recital. The house was perfect. Although it was chilly outside the patio heaters and fire pit made it completely usable. My kids swam in the heated pool for 2 days straight. There were plenty of rooms for our families to sleep in. The showers were always hot no matter how many were taken. The kitchen was spacious with lots of room for my mom and I to cook together in. At night the pool table, sonos system and take some leave some bar was a great way to spend the night. I can not stay enough about the stay. The bedding and art work are beautiful. I will be using this place again.
