About Carlson Peters

My husband Raul and I own and manage long term rentals. As well, we've rented out our personal residence to vacationers in the past to great success. We've decided to jump in the pool once again with Casa De Los Ladrillos. We live just five blocks away from the property and if you find anything amiss or missing we'll be on it fast. We love to personally check you in and then get out of your way so you can enjoy your vacation. I work out of my home in Telecommunications with a BS in electrical engineering. We've lived in the neighborhood for eight years and are active in the local civic and cultural scene.

Carlson Peters purchased this house in 2015

Why Carlson Peters chose Cathedral City

This desert homestead adobe style property is an alternative to the bright, sterile party vibe of mid-century modern. The second we saw the house we knew this was the one we wanted to launch our short-term business with.

What makes this house unique

Privacy galore. Eco-friendly. 24 panels on the roof generate all the electricity you can use and more. There is an evaporative cooler which uses half the electricity of air-conditioning and it's designed to be used with windows and doors open so you don't have to feel cut off from the outside. Or turn on the central AC if you like. The Cove has no street lights and the night sky dazzles with stars. There are several dining options within walking distance or downtown Palm Springs is just 12 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An exact quote from a lovely note: Carlson, We cannot thank you enough for letting us stay in your amazing home! You've been welcoming and truly made us feel at home. We hope to visit again in the future.

Plesant Stay in Catherdral City Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this Southwest themed home. The location is great, near everything, but in a residential neighborhood.

We enjoyed the interior design on a southwest theme, with beautiful tiles and nice furnishings, and the outside was a great place to sit and relax. The pool was a plus, and didn't need heat to be enjoyed in April.

The landlord had stocked the refrigerator and pantry with all the necessities as well as other staples usually not found in VRBO rentals.

The landlord came over to show us how to operate the heat and air, BBQ, pool filter, and all the other things that needed explaining.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The backyard is an oasis! It was so relaxing to listen to the birds and the water fountains. Inside is all functional but could use updating, but let's be honest we pretty much lived outside while we were there! We'd definitely return!

A lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just sitting here on the patio of this vacation rental, considering how difficult it will be to leave in a few days! The stay started with the hosts graciously allowing an early check in, followed by a kind visit with Raul to acclimate us to the property. Carlson has been responsive through our whole booking process and stay and was very understanding and forgiving when an outdoor accessory was accidentally damaged. The kitchen, bedrooms and yard worked very well for three adults sleeping separately. Some days, we stayed in for the whole day, just enjoying the pool, spa and walks around the quiet neighborhood. Great location for drives into downtown Palm Springs as well as trips to Thermal for winter circuit equestrian shows, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage. Thank you so much, Carlson and Raul! We plan to enjoy our final day and then return in the future!

Lovely Casa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a restful week at this lovely home. Very comfortable beds and the yard is fantastic, you can barely see the neighbors! So nice to sit in the hot tub every night. I brought slippers along because of the tile floors which were cool. We ate in for breakfast (coffee was provided as well as the basics) and lunch but not dinners. Every day we tried a different nationality and there were many choices within a five minute drive. Carlson was very accommodating and offered to let us stay in the house later due to our 5:30 pm flight. We would definitely return!

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay and the price was right. The location was perfect for us as we golfed every day throughout the valley. Carlson met us when we arrived the first night and did a quick walk through where we discovered the propane was out for the BBQ. It was promptly changed the next day before we returned from golfing. The back yard was private and a nice place to wind-down the day with a hot tub. The house was well stocked and comfortable. The fresh cut flowers were a nice touch. When we left the house on the final day we forgot to turn on the dishwasher so we texted Carlson from the airport and he said he would take care of it for us. Also prompt damage deposit return. We would definitely stay there again.
