About Tanya Malch Petrovna

Tanya Petrovna grew up in this house, lots of great meals were made in this kitchen by her gourmet chef mother. Lots of entertaining and lots of love for animals. She uses it for entertaining and private classes and decided to rent it to people who would like to enjoy it and be able to travel with their pets.

You are renting directly from the owner so you will get top service and attention. We will do our best to provide you with every detail to make your vacation the best that it can be. We can assure you that you will not be disappointed!

Tanya Malch Petrovna purchased this house in 1964

Why Tanya Malch Petrovna chose Sonora Sunrise

We welcome your entire family including your cat or dog/s. We recognize that a vacation is even better when you can have your four-legged family with you.

A portion of your rental is donated to the Palm Springs community cat project. The backyard of this home has a few rescued feral cats who have been saved from death from local shelters. The cats are cared for by a caregiver who also cares for the garden during your stay. The cats are shy so will not bother you other than maybe watch you from afar, and are fun to watch!

Every convenience and cozy detail has been considered with our home. We do everything to help make your vacation perfect so that you want to come back and stay with us again.

What makes this house unique

It has a friendly relaxing feel I can only say probably because all the love and care that was put into over so many years. The spacious back yard you will never leave. Sitting in the lounge chairs or doing paperwork at the table with the pool and mountain views you will find your stress levels reduce instantaneously! Reading in the pool tiki hut or swinging in the hammock is a getaway within a getaway!

Also available are healthy vegan meals by Chef Tanya to stock in the refrigerator and freezer (inquire separately), a great addition to your fresh lettuce harvested from the garden!

Great weekend get away spot

Tanya was a terrific host and gave us such a warm welcome on our arrival. Her home was very comfortable, fun and immaculately clean and tidy. Highly recommend staying here.

Great backyard and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit. The house was as pictured on VRBO and well stocked. Pool was great - we spent most of our visit in the backyard swimming and enjoying the sunshine. We would definitely return.

Comfortable and Welcoming, True Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Tanya is one of the easiest owners I have ever rented from. I have experience renting through these applications and she has been one of the most accommodating and flexible home owners.

My friends and I rented her home for our trip to Coachella. We could not have chosen a better home to allow us for recovery time each morning before our treks out to the festival ground. If you rent this home you will likely spend 90% of your time outside around the pool area. It was beautiful and relaxing. The interior was spacious and filled with any amenity we needed.

The home is also conveniently located close to grocery stores and many restaurants. My group and I took advantage of the grill and fully stocked kitchen and mostly cooked. But there was easy access to fast food or sit-down restaurants too.

If her schedule allows she easily accommodates early check-ins and late check-outs. I hope to make my way out to Palm Springs again and will definitely try to rent from her again!

Comfortable and home-like

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week-long family vacation, and this home was a big part of it. Very close to everything Palm Springs has to offer, but quiet and private. The salt-water pool was perfect for our kids, 13 and 7, to splash and play, and the back patio had multiple comfortable sitting areas, from several different shady spots (including a hammock), to a grill and picnic table, to loungers in the sun. Plus, of course, the hot tub under a leafy tree! The owner greeted us when we arrived and was extremely accessible for questions of all kinds. This isn't a sleek luxurious Palm Springs house that would be in Dwell Magazine if that's what you want, but it felt just right for us -- like a lived-in house, not a sterile rental. There were pictures and knickknacks, some quirky plantings outside, comfy couches, and a bunch of old board games and DVDs. It was very clean and well-stocked (linens, towels, and kitchen). I would rent it again for sure.

Beautiful house with everything you want and need

  • 5 of 5

We have rented numerous houses in the Palm Springs area over the past years and this beautiful home was by far one of the favorites. When you rent a house for the week you hope you never have any issues as you don't know how responsive the owner/manager might be. We had some issues with the wild wind that was in the area during our stay which caused some damage in the back area... within 24 hours it was all cleaned up and we were back to enjoying paradise. The house was perfectly stocked with towels, sheets, blankets and anything else you would want. This was a very memorable trip to take with my parents and I cant thank you enough for your hospitality and professionalism. One other note.. my wife has a small dog that is hypoallergenic as she is allergic to pet dander. I was very impressed that although this place is perfect for dogs of all sizes that it was impeccably cleaned where she had no issues. THANKS AGAIN!!!

Relaxing Home with Great Outdoor Space

  • 5 of 5

Home was very comfortable and well maintained with an eclectic, mid-century modern feel. The home was also well stocked including towels for the pool and a full compliment of kitchen tools for cooking. The pool and outdoor spaces were amazing! Plenty of seating options outside to move from sun to shade throughout the day. A nice BBQ grill. The salt-water pool was nice sized and very well maintained. The owner even provided an app for controlling the pool & hot tub temp from your phone so you can easily get it warmed up in the morning without having to get out of bed. Washer, dryer, WiFi, everything worked as it should. Beds were comfortable. Linens were clean and of good quality. My only nit, if I have one, is that a couple of the bedroom pillows may need replacing soon. The location is great! Short drive to downtown Palm Springs. Also if you like to hike, you can go right to the end of Farrell Street (~1.5miles) and there are some great trails that start near there. The owner was friendly and very responsive. FYI - There are a couple "community cats" that live on the property in their own cat houses (back corner of yard outside). We are animal lovers and tried to get them to come and say hello so we could pet them but were unsuccessful. They are pretty shy and kept to themselves - we only really saw them when they would go for an evening stroll. Overall a great stay. We will be back next time we are in Palm Springs!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your time and the home. Thanks for letting me know about the pillows! I will go today and get a bunch of new ones.Thanks again!
