Overview

Photos and Description of the Cahuilla Hills vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The “Birdcage” is a cozy, rustic cabin with breathtaking views of the Coachella Valley. Sited high atop the Cahuilla Hills (adjacent to Bighorn Golf Club) and enveloped by the Santa Rosa Mountains, it is only 2 miles from downtown Palm Desert.

My aunt and uncle homesteaded this land in 1948 and built the cabin, affectionately known as 'The Bird Cage'. Frequented by movie stars in the 1950s who valued its privacy, it's one of the last homesteads in our area.

The Birdcage has one bedroom with a new queen-sized bed, a bathroom with a good size shower, and a living/dining/kitchen room — all with beautiful views. The large patio is perfect for drinking morning coffee while the sun rises over the mountains, gazing at hawks soaring overhead during the day, or watching the Valley below transition from gold to pink as the sun sets behind you. And at night, the sky holds a canopy of twinkling stars.

With its proximity to nature, The Birdcage captures the ambiance of life in the Wild West, yet the restaurants and world-class shopping on El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of the desert) are just a 5-minute drive down the hill. Sublime and safe, the entrance to the property is secured by electronic gates and flanked by a beautiful stand of date palms.
