You’ll love the location of the popular and historic El Rancho Vista Estates. My property is tastefully updated with modern luxuries all the while still holding its original mid-century flair. The Master Bedroom features a king size bed with HDTV and DVD and a private en-suite bathroom. There are plenty of opportunities for lounging or fun in the sun. Enjoy the cabana bed poolside, outdoor kitchen with gas barbecue grill while being surrounded by the beautiful mountains and palm trees.

Other things to note

Heating the pool will cost an additional $40.00 per day. Please let host know as this amount is not included in the pricing.
Security Deposit:
The security deposit is set high because if damage is done, the host cannot collect more thank the amount of security from the guests. So I set the security deposit to cover the repair/replacement of items that could be damaged. I have some pretty nice furnishings in the home. But Airbnb never collects the security deposit from you. It only comes into the picture if there is damage. And the guest is only responsible for the amount of damage they cause. They don't automatically pay the maximum.

We enjoyed our stay for the long weekend. We had some issues with the concierge being late to get us checked in but it wasn't a huge deal. House was perfect size for the 4 of us. Kitchen was great for cooking, but be prepared to bring everything (foil, cooking oil, etc.). Same goes for the bathrooms (towels and TP were provided). Outdoor area was great, and we spent most of the time in the pool. Location can't be beat. It's about 2 miles from downtown and close to grocery stores and great golf courses. While it's close to the airport, we never heard a thing all weekend.

The Desert Jewel is truly a gem in Palm Springs. If you are searching for a retreat away from home then this house is perfect for you. It is centrally located. Within five - ten minutes you can drive to the grocery store, restaurants, the notable juice bar, historic downtown, and the convention center or roughly $8-12 Uber ride. The house itself has upscale decor with plenty of comfortable room to share common space if traveling with family or friends. The amenities and appliances are well new and well maintained. The outside has privacy and seclusion. It is like a miniature resort style oasis, especially at night. I highly recommend!

What an oasis! The outdoor space is amazing. Tucked away in a little neighborhood, but you'd never know it when you are in the pool - it feels like your own little resort. We spent most of the trip in or around the pool and spa, and we never got tired of it. The house is beautiful. Everything is well designed, the accommodations are comfortable, and the kitchen is top-notch. When the sun gets too hot - don't forget to spend some time in the garden area under the lemon trees. We hope to be back soon.

Pamela's place is even better than the photos:) The house is modern and open. Every room leads to the outdoors. The living area is comfortable and spacious and the kitchen is well stocked. Last but not least, the pool and hot tub are a dream! We had a perfect getaway!
