About the property

5 Bedrooms/4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 adults, But With Beds For 12

Casa Dashley is unlike any other home in the surrounding area. This 2800sf 5 bedroom, 4 bath home sleeps 10, although it has beds for up to 12. It was originally bought and personally remodeled by us, Danny and Ashley, as our primary residence. An incredible amount of detail and care has been put into every facet of the home, from the design of the finishings, to the artwork commissioned specifically for the space, to all the custom details and flourishes throughout, everything about Casa Dashley has been meticulously selected to provide the feeling of perfect cohesive warmth and give a sense of relaxation that you'll feel from the moment you walk in. This is truly a special home and not your typical vacation rental. It has been given the utmost attention and care into making it the best it can possibly be, with no expense spared.

The property consists of a 4 bedroom/3 bath main house, plus a detached 1 bedroom/1 bath casita, with all bedrooms and bathrooms spaced apart providing excellent separation and privacy. It is perfect for large groups or couples (there is only one bedroom that shares a wall with any other bedroom).

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, lush tropical landscaping, outdoor ping pong table, and high-end BBQ. This is your retreat to relax, sit back, and completely unwind. At night, you can gather around the firepit, cook s'mores, fire up the BBQ, take a dip in the hot tub, enjoy an adult beverage, or just sit back, relax and take in the serenity of the space.

The interior of the home is geared for both relaxing & entertaining guests and is centered by a great room & fireplace, with seating for 12. Vaulted ceilings and sky lights throughout give an open, airy feeling to the space, and there is a pool table area adjacent to the fully stocked cook's kitchen. The kitchen has been set up to cater to the most demanding chef, complete with high-end Viking/Bosch stainless steel appliances, J.R. Henckels cutlery, cutting board island, extensive countertop spaces, and almost every cooking gadget/utensil available, plus a custom-designed liquor bar cabinet with color-changing LED lighting to set the mood. At night, various art niches and custom lighting throughout the home make it transform into an entertainer's paradise. Each bedroom has its own large flat-screen, iHome dock, and USB outlets. There is a Sonos stereo system throughout the home, 2 high speed wifi networks for all your devices, access to a house iPad, ability to stream movies with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, & Roku, and a land-line with free long-distance to the US & Canada. All mattresses are of the highest quality and bedding if of the highest thread-count.

No expense has been spared. Every detail has been attended to. The only thing missing is for you to come relax and experience it for yourself!


If golf (or tennis) is on your desert 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. The club, which is only 8 minutes from the Casa, is one of the most prestigious in the desert and includes 3 championship golf courses (one of which hosts 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 (please see "Owner Info" section for more details).

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.

Absolutely amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Dashley is absolutely stunning! We chose to stay at Casa Dashley to celebrate a friend's bachelorette. We couldn't have picked a better house. The way that Danny and his wife decorated the house was a dream. There was no detail left spared. Everything about the house was beautiful! It was very spacious and had all the amenities that one would need to have a relaxing fun time vacationing. I could have spent the whole vacation at the house without ever leaving it.

Not only is the property a gem, but Danny (owner) and Natellie (property manager) were also great to work with. When I needed to reach Natellie for a question, she was always available and answered very promptly. Natellie made sure to take care us very well. At the end of our trip, one of the girls accidentally forgot a dress behind in the closet and she was so kind - she offered to mail the dress back.

We also took Danny's recommendation to book Stephen Lee for a private dinner party on Saturday evening. What a fantastic experience! It was our first time hiring a private chef and all my friends and I agreed it was something we would all do again. It was so neat to hang out and mingle while watching Stephen cook. It was like watching Top Chef live! Stephen was such a joy and made delicious fresh food - from farm to table.

Accommodations were top notch. When I visit Palm Springs in the future, I will definitely be booking with Casa Dashley again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We've made every effort to make the casa the best it can be and it makes us happy you and your group had such a good time. The private chef is one of our all favorite people, and chefs, and we are so glad you got to experience one of his amazing meals. Having him there doing his thing really does make the evening special!

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.
