4 BD, 3 Bath Vacation Home, Fully Stocked For A Relaxing Vacation In The Desert!
About Daryl Parker
I'm a life-loving traveller, born and raised in Southern California, and have had amazing opportunities to travel abroad. Some of my favorite destinations are Italy, Canada, Japan, and Costa Rica, just to name a few. I work in the pharmaceutical industry, live in Los Angeles, and enjoy visiting my own vacation home in the Palm Desert area in my free time. I am a graduate of UC Santa Barbara with a BA in Psychology and History, and a proud alumni of USC, with a Masters in Business Administration. Fight on! I enjoy painting, cooking, wine tasting, snowboarding, and hanging out with my significant other and our two furry best friends.
Daryl Parker purchased this House in 2016
Why Daryl Parker chose Estacio
This property is truly one of a kind! We have always frequented the Palm Desert area for hiking, golfing, relaxing, and for fun weekend getaways. When we saw this home, we knew it was the perfect vacation property. It is clean, spacious, private, and located near all our favorite stores, restaurants, and championship golf courses. We love spending our time here, and hope our guests love it just as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite moments have been spent in the back yard, whether lounging on the tanning shelf of the pool, or laying together on the swing in the patio. We love to BBQ, watch the sun set, and enjoy the warm desert weather, even in the summer time. We also enjoy hosting our friends, who love to come visit us. We have a great time drinking, lounging, and swimming. Many great memories have been created at The Heat Retreat!

We had a wonderful stay during the month of March. This home is well-located in a quiet, gated neighborhood that is conveniently located to many golf courses, Old Town La Quinta and any other shopping we needed. The owners take the time to make sure that everything is in good working order and we found it had everything we needed. The kitchen is well-equipped and the furnishings, beds and linens are very comfortable. The layout of the home was perfect when our two adult children and their families came for a visit with one family staying in the casita with bathroom and the other in a wing of the house that has two bedrooms and a bathroom. We all watched March Madness in the cozy TV room. The backyard with lovely pool, spa and covered lounging area is where we spent most of our time. The fire pit table was fun to sit around at night or to have coffee in the morning if there was a chill. There is also a unique covered swing that was very popular for lounging and reading. We brought our dog and the private, fenced yard felt safe for him plus there are many open green areas in the neighborhood to play in. This was our third year to stay in the Palm Springs area and this was by far our best experience renting a home.
Roomy enough for the family
We stayed here in February 2016 and are booking for next year as well. The house was clean and stocked with all most anything you'd need. The owners were very responsive to anything we needed or had questions about. The location was perfect for us. The back yard and pool are very nice.
5 Star Vacation Home
We just wanted to get away and unplug somewhere with warm weather. This was a great choice.
Peace and quiet, no traffic, wide streets, a relaxing pool, and no noise. It was peaceful and private. We are the introverted type and this was a great house for us. It was clean, safe, peaceful, fully stocked, comfortable, and homey. The decor was unique. We enjoyed many good meals together here, some inside and some outside on the patio.
Many stores are nearby. We went to Costco and Ralphs most often. Wife took a trip to the outlets for shopping as well.
The hosts went out of their way to make this a pleasant stay, and I will definitely look up this place again next year when we are headed back out in this direction. I would highly recommend. A+ overall.
We LOVED our stay! This a a gorgeous property that has EVERYTHING you need! We got to the property and immediately felt at home. The owners are fabulous people who were easily accessible and wanted us to enjoy our stay. We loved it. Everything we needed for our vacation was found in the home. From the spacious rooms and gorgeous decor to the pool, spa, and backyard...this place made our vacation that much better. Clean, spacious and fully stocked of everything you would need for 6 of us. The beds are very comfy and the Casita was perfect for the in-laws! We spent most of our time in the back yard and enjoyed the stars at night. Can't say enough great things about this place! Close to the golf courses and supermarkets, great indoor atmosphere, beautiful backyard, and complete privacy. Even the pool floats added to our fun getaway. The only downside is that we wanted to book this home again in July, and they were sold out until August. We will be sure to stay here again next time!
Relaxing family vacation
We had a fun time with the family here. This place is a mix between "home sweet home" and a resort. The kitchen, bedrooms, and living room have everything you need to feel right at home, such as board games, kitchen utensils, coffee maker, DVD players, TVs, and washer/dryer. The backyard makes you feel like you are in a resort. Pool and hot tub were very relaxing, especially with the sound of the water columns on. It was a very hot vacation, so the pool was a must-have. Best of all, I'm an avid golfer, and there are fantastic golf courses literally everywhere in this town. The house was also near places like Costco and Walmart, convenient for a quick vacation to get away from it all. Hope to return next year. Maybe the weather won't be as hot.
Great home for Snowbirds!
We are from Minneapolis, and out here it is unbearable in the winter. We found this lovely home and very much enjoyed our extended stay. The warm weather allowed us to enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, sight seeing, and lounging outside by the pool.
This house is in a convenient location, away from it all, but at the same time, near it all. There are lovely restaurants in the area, and there are plenty of super markets to choose from. The polo fields are nearby. We even took a windmill tour and it was fascinating.
The property itself is spacious, well-stocked, and well-kept. You can tell the owners take great pride in their home and take good care of it. We had our children and grandchildren visit for a weekend and we had such a wonderful time. They really enjoyed sitting outside in the middle of winter in their sandals and flip flops.
Rooms are spacious. The neighborhood is clean and quiet. Most people just keep to themselves and respect your privacy. There is a dog-run right next to the home and our dog really enjoyed that area. The home is pet-friendly and the yard is enclosed.
This is our fifth year coming back to the desert in the winter. We usually stay at a different house each year, but I would definitely consider coming back to this same home next year. Thanks for a great time.
