The Blue Room accommodates two with a comfortable king size bed. The bathroom, which is shared with the Green Room, is immediately next door. A south-facing sliding glass door opens onto the room's private garden patio and sitting area furnished with a four-person table with a lovely mountain view and a large daybed for outdoor lounging, reading or just napping.

The space
Need a place to stay for 4th of July? Palm Springs Film Festival? Gay Pride? Thanksgiving? Christmas and New Year's? Or perhaps you just want to get out of town for a weekend? Welcome to Casa Cerritos, a Bed and Breakfast experience catering primarily to gay men. Experience the relaxing atmosphere of life in the Desert, as well as the exciting events and entertainments of the Palm Springs season from the comfort of this well-appointed, conveniently located private home just minutes away from Palm Canyon, Arenas, and the heart of the downtown shopping and nightlife in central Palm Springs. We're also right next door to the famous (or infamous!) Movie Colony, home to the stars.

Imagine yourself basking (or frolicking) in the natural outdoor beauty and hedged privacy of the huge backyard - swaying palm trees, a large rock-edged swimming pool and jacuzzi, and a million dollar view of the mountains. (If you are staying during the colder winter months please note that we do not heat the pool, except on request and with a surcharge per day with a two day minimum.) Sip your morning coffee or tea in our informal breakfast nook, or in the cool morning air of the back porch, or even under the palms beyond the swimming pool. Spend the rest of the day taking in the rays or swimming and soaking in the clothing optional pool and jacuzzi.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere? Join us for hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and conversation in the sophisticated comfort of the main salon with its mirrored fireplace and a magnificent view of the mountains - or perhaps outdoors by the pool. After dinner, feel free to join us, along with any other guests in residence, in the large media room for a little television or a movie from our extensive DVD library or online Netflix. Special requests for TV shows, movies, or music? Just ask.

Time for bed? Retire to the high quality pillows and luxury sheets of the extremely comfortable king size bed in the Blue Room. With south-facing window and plantation shutters, the Blue Room is also furnished with a large closet and chest of drawers, a comfortable leather reading chair with adjustable lighting, premium cable television and wifi internet. On request the king size bed can become two twins. The recently re-done contemporary bathroom, with combined shower/tub, is immediately adjacent in the hallway.

So much for the Bed - now for the Breakfast. Want a full English or American style breakfast? Or perhaps a lighter Continental breakfast? Just let us know your preferences. In fact, if you have any particular preferences while you are our guest, we would like to know what they are. Have a favorite snack, hors d'oeuvres, or cocktail? Let us know and we'll stock them. Like orchids but allergic to daisies? Let us know and we'll get it right. Need advice on where to find the best hiking trails? Bicycles for rent? Bars? Restaurants?
We'll do our best to help answer all your questions.

As your host, my goal is to make your visit as pleasurable as possible so that you will want to come again and again - and recommend us to your friends. Indeed, after staying at Casa Cerritos I hope you will feel like you've been staying with good friends.

Guest access
We operate as a classic English style private home bed and breakfast, consequently there is limited access to kitchen facilities: feel free to make coffee and tea, toast, cereal, etc., or to store drinks and leftovers in the fridge on a space available basis. There is also a microwave for reheating leftovers. In general, however, guests are expected to take lunch and dinner out unless other arrangements have been made and general cooking facilities are not provided.

Other things to note
Due to the nature of our primary clientele and insurance liability issues and state regulations concerning access to the swimming pool we are NOT able to accomodate children.

Location

Palm Springs, California, United States

The neighborhood is wonderful for walking and riding bicycles, and is centrally located within walking distance of the municipal swimming pool and track, grocery stores, coffee shops and even the downtown area of Palm Springs (a walk of one mile). The mid-century modern architecture of surrounding streets is particularly interesting.
