About Craig Fossay

Canadian that loves the Coachella Valley

Craig Fossay purchased this house in 2010

Why Craig Fossay chose Deserts

I like the clean modern lines of the house, and the beautiful and scenic area. It is peaceful, and safe. The views in the neighbourhood are stunning. There is great hiking in the area, and some terrific restaurants. Groceries, and shopping are minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The mountain views are lovely.

The back yard is spacious, and very private.

The home has been professionally furnished by a designer with pieces from DWR, Ligne Roset, and Roche Bobois. There are also several mid-century vintage pieces.

The kitchen is great to cook in. There are two new Bosch ovens, an Asko dishwasher, Nespresso machine, etc. The salt water pool and spa are lovely on your skin. There is a nice park down the street, with a playground. The Living Desert Zoo and interpretive centre is minutes away.

Televisions are in each bedroom, and there is a den with a large TV and fireplace.


Quiet and scenic area. Minutes to shopping and restaurants on El Paseo

Fell in love the moment we walked in.

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely gorgeous and was exactly what we hoped for. A beautiful open floor plan, with plenty of "hang out" areas and 3 master bedrooms all with en suite baths. We had 3 couples and had plenty of space. Nicely decorated with that Mid-century vibe, we loved every moment of our vacation. The large sliding doors, to the outdoor living space and pool were perfect for allowing us to cook meals and have everyone involved. The kitchen had every utensil/gadget needed for the gourmet cook too. The couches and fire pit outside, as well as the jacuzzi made for lovely evenings under the stars. The only "issue" we had was trying to figure out the misters outside, but sent a quick text to the owner, who answered in under 5 minutes (push 1 button on the remote) and we were all set. We will definitely be back, it was everything we hoped for, and Craig was a pleasure to rent from.

Beautiful, Spacious, Elegant Palm Desert Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the home justice! A beautiful, VERY spacious home, with an great open floor plan for renters to enjoy. Located in a very quiet, safe neighborhood, down the street from the luxurious El Paseo shopping area. Bedrooms and beds are nice and cozy after a long day. Kitchen has everything you need to do any cooking of your own.

The best part of the home is the backyard pool area. A nice spa with a heated salt water pool makes jumping in so tempting! Enjoy the warm weather cooking on the accompanying grill and lounge in the multiple options of seats and chairs. At night, there is a fire pit to lounge around and enjoy as well!

The owner is nice, understanding, and one of the best I have worked with, and keeps in communication for anything you need.

Would definitely enjoy coming back again and again!
