What makes this house unique

Surrounded by three stunning mountain ranges and offering year-round sunny skies, Palm Desert is the epitome of relaxed desert living in the Coachella Valley combining high style and natural beauty in perfect harmony.

With nearly 40 golf courses in the city, Palm Desert is a golfer’s dream come true. The area hosts the Skins Game, the Bob Hope Classic and countless other major golf tournaments, as well as world-class tennis. And you won’t want to miss the annual Golf Cart Parade, a 40-year Palm Desert tradition. Palm Desert also is home to The Living Desert zoo and botanical gardens. Largest of Palm Desert’s numerous parks is Civic Center Park, which includes baseball fields, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, a skate park, dog park, tot lot and picnic pavilions. The park also has an amphitheater for outdoor concerts. Other city parks include soccer fields, additional baseball fields and sport courts, open turf areas and much more.

Nature lovers staying in the Dolce will find an outstanding variety of close-to-home destinations for everything from hiking to dirt biking to horseback riding to hot air ballooning! The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway takes visitors from the desert floor up to beautiful Mt. San Jacinto State Park at an elevation of more than 8,500 feet. Joshua Tree National Park is popular for hiking, climbing, mountain biking, four wheeling and camping complemented by sweeping desert vistas. Another favorite is the Coachella Valley Preserve, a 17,000-acre expanse that offers scenic hiking trails surrounded by lush palm groves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an amazing 3.5 week stay in Palm Desert. The weather was unbelieveable and as long as we got an early tee time, we were able to golf every morning before it got too warm. Dolce is a fabulous gated community, and since it only has around 40 homes, it is nice and quiet. The backyard is fantastic so we spent most days around the pool and would bbq at night and enjoy the huge outdoor dining table.



All of the shopping necessities are a stones throw away and there are great retail areas within a really short drive. The property manager was available anytine we needed him (rarely) and we are already trying to get our vacation time approved next year so we can lock in our booking!

Worst experience

  • 1 of 5

By far the worst experience my family and I have ever had. Never have we ever had to experience with such an owner. He blamed everything he found in the house on us. The fact that his jaquzi heater wasnt working throughout the entirety of our stay and he notified us that a technician had to come out on our last day there was blamed on us as well. If it was our fault how would he know its not working while we are still in the house. There were also other minor but outrageous things that he wanted to blame on us with no picture proof. I say outrageous because I know my family wouldnt have done such things. There were no towels or any soap or any toilet paper. The worst part of it all was how disgusting the house was, dust everywhere and cockroaches in the garage. The house is perfect representation of the owner, it comes off nice at first but once you really get to know it it is very disgusting. Steer clear.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a weekend trip for golf with four guys as each had their own room. The house is spacious and the back yard with your own pool and hot tub was a great place to spend time. The location was ideal as everything you would need was within close proximity (shopping, grocery stores, airport, etc.). The house is well stocked and has everything you need. The owner and onsite representative were great to deal with and quick to reply to any issues or concerns before arrival or while at the house. I would recommend this property to others looking for a vacation in Palm Springs. We will be back again!

Great for Golfers

  • 5 of 5

Four golfers stayed here and it was great for stay since we played at nearby courses for our annual golf tournament.

Everything was as advertised. Harvey the owner was prompt in acceptance and return with the deposit. Paul met us and was great in showing us everything. We used the Jacuzzi every night. Would definitely stay here again.

The property was excellent and all of our guests had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

All of our party were very impressed. The location was close to shops and activities. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. There were 3 couples staying and all were very happy with the property. The property manager was present when we arrived and assisted in getting us organized and addressed all questions. Appliances and cooking equipment all worked nicely with no complaints. We had no complaints and recommend this to others.
