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.

We had a wonderful time!
Thank you Danny for a great experience at Casa Dashley. We had a great time for my friends bachelorette party! 4 bathrooms was a huge hit for 9 girls! The beds were cozy and the pool made for fun afternoons BBQing by the pool. A must if you’re in Palm Springs with a big party!
Amazing Coachella Retreat
Casa Dashley was an amazing stay for our group of 12. We were there for Coachella weekend 1 and everything was perfect.
It was our 5th year in a row going to Coachella and second year in a row staying in Cathedral city and I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else.
The house was just as described in the pictures. Danny was an amazing host. We actually met a couple of the neighbors and they were all nice and understanding that it was Coachella weekend so they weren’t bothered by our music or noise.
The backyard was perfect for pictures and was the highlight of the house. The outside fireplace and ceiling heaters kept us warm at night. Rides for the house to the venue ranged from $25 for a standard uber to $55 for an xl during rush hour coming back to the house.
Our group unfortunately ended up making the fridge door hinges bend and created squeaking noise when it opened and closed. Danny was completely understanding and with our renters insurance he handled everything on his end after a paying a small deductible.
He was a very good host and I would recommend staying here for any time of the year. Great for groups and having an amazing time!
A True Oasis
Casa Dashley is more than what you see on the website! It was perfect for our family reunion/birthday/retirement weekend celebration. The house comfortably accommodated 9 adults and 2 babies. The casita was great for the family with 2 girls under 2 years old. They were able to fit 2 pack-and-plays in the room. The house is all one level, beautifully designed, spotless! The kitchen was better equipped than mine! Big screen tv's to watch the final 4. Nice linens, including plenty of towels for the pool. The backyard is beautiful! Hawaii-like. Very private, quiet. The walls are tall, never heard a neighbor. Lots of seating and room to spread out. The pool/spa is large, beautiful and well maintained. The owner is very helpful and responsive, a pleasure to work with.
Perfect Warm Weather Getaway
We loved our stay at Casa Dashley. We were traveling with a multiple generations, and the young and old enjoyed relaxing in the spacious and well-appointed house. The hosts were extremely communicative and the House was beautiful! Thanks Casa Dashley!
CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK
We had a wonderful time at the Casa Dashley with out family. The quality of this home is fantastic, the backyard is as good as it looks in pictures, everything worked properly, and we literally lived in the pool and spa for the few days we were there! We ate all of our meals outside, snuggled up by the camp fire at night, and enjoyed the peaceful retreat.
The only bit of feedback is there were additional expenses we received after signing into contract (some VRBO-driven and some by the owner). Though advertised as "heated pool" this is an additional expense. I'm really glad we decided to have it heated though, because it was like bath water and very enjoyable for even our young kids. I would recommend they add the heated pool into the price of the home, because it was a little off-putting after signing. Other than that, we absolutely cannot wait to go back (and we likely will!!)
So glad you had such an amazing time. We aim to please!
As far as the pool heat, it’s only needed half the year because of our warm summers, and some people do not want it during the other 6 cooler months. So that is why almost all vacation rentals in the area, not just ours, have an add’l charge for heating the pool (and spa). It’s mentioned in several places throughout our listing and I also just updated the verbiage in the pool/spa description to be even more clear. We’re sorry if it came as a surprise to you, as that is not our intention!
Thank you for your stay and for choosing us. We hope to see you again!
I have rented over 25 homes over the past 20 years in the desert. This home was the best I have stayed at. The home was immaculate and equipped with every ammentity you can imagine. Also, whenever we called they were super quick to respond to questions we had. You cannot do better.
Our house is located in the Panorama Park area about a block from the park. It is centrally located within the desert with easy access to every place you'd want to go: 4 miles from downtown Palm Springs and Palm Desert, 3 miles to local casinos, 1 mile from Championship Golf (Cimarron Golf Resort, Desert Princess, and Mission Hills Country Club), and less than a mile from the freeway for easy access to La Quinta, Indio, and all other areas of the desert.
