About the property

Casita With Million Dollar Views

Private 1bd, 1br casita (guesthouse) in spa country with skyline views of mt. San Jacinto and palm springs. Spacious shower. Kitchenette with all essentials. Hot tub, pool. Hiking trail access behind the house. Located next to Joshua Tree NTL. Park.

Located 15 minutes from Palm Springs, 35 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, and minutes from Big Morongo Canyon Preserve. The property is close to all Coachella and Yucca Valley destinations but just secluded enough for peace and relaxation.

Desert Hot Springs sits on two underground aquifers — a hot water and a cold water aquifer. DHS has thus earned the moniker of 'spa city', with dozens of spas within city limits. We also have the best drinking water in the nation!

Guests have access to the private casita via a locking gate. Guests also have access to the pool, hot tub, front and side yards.

The owner lives in the main house, and may or may not be present during the guests' stay. The owner is very kind and is glad to be of help, should the guests have any requests or questions.

There is a dog (Emma) on the premises who is incredibly sweet with visitors. She lives in the main house and can remain inside should guests so desire.

About Blake Alexander

Real estate agent, stock trader, and film-maker from Los Angeles, CA.

Blake Alexander purchased this house in 2013

Why Blake Alexander chose Desert Hot Springs

My family has been coming to Palm Springs since 2003. We since fell in love with the area and when this property came on the market in 2013, we bought it immediately. We first viewed the property at night — it was the view of the lights of the Coachella Valley that hooked us!

What makes this house unique

I love coming to the desert to escape the hustle and bustle of life in the city. I always return feeling rested and recharged. It's a very cleansing and spiritual place.

Fantastic Views and close to Two Bunch Palms Hot Springs

  • 5 of 5

This cozy casita was perfectly located for my conference in Joshua Tree and trips to Whole Foods/Retail Therapy/Movies in Palm Springs. Make sure to visit Kiyosaki for the best sushi in town. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was roomy and kitchen was small but extremelly functional. Quail, hummingbirds, and blue jays made themselves at home around the pool and jacuzzi. I enjoyed evcery minute at this sweet oasis.

Excellent location, small but adequate sized casita, great views!

  • 5 of 5

We focused on visits to Joshua Tree Natl Park, and many other parks, canyons, hiking spots in the area. The location was very convenient for most of our ventures. Taking the roads around the perimeter (Indian Canyon, Dillon, etc) gave us stress-free access to downtown Palm Springs events, museums, Tram... Also the spa/ hot springs and Von's was just down the road. Glad to have met Laura who was very accommodating and very interesting to converse with! The view from the casita was wonderful, nice quiet neighborhood at the top of the hill. All-in-all a perfect vacation in a lovely part of California.
