relaxation & location perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an unforgettable property and vacation all wrapped into one! We spent no less than 3 hours a day in the pool and hot tub - either lounging on a raft, swimming or sitting in the hot tub. Each night we would watch TV outside while we lounged in the pool. The outside is exquisite - the perfectly landscaped (and kept) desert palms, cacti and flowers, the fire pits, seating areas and grill - it was absolute paradise. It was difficult to leave the property because the outside areas were so amazing, but when we did - we learned the location is absolutely perfect and with the mountains as a picturesque backdrop - honestly, such a gem. A quick walk (or quicker drive) to the Tahquitz Canyon trails to view the city or sunset and also a great hike to see the waterfall - steeped in history and beauty! Casa de las Puertas - with literally a door off every room - delivered in not only the on site beauty and splendor, but it's location was so key. Far enough from a main road (South Palm Canyon Drive) to maintain the noise level but close enough to access downtown Palm Springs - it is such an ideal location! Also a close drive are the Indian Canyons which were absolutely amazing in either direction we traveled. Exploring downtown Palm Springs was a treat with so many wonderful people who were ready to greet and have a conversation in every location we visited. The Palm Springs Tram and Mt. San Jacinto were highlights and not a far drive from the property (literally a MUST if visiting the area). Close by we visited Cathedral City & Palm Desert and even took an hour trip out to the Salton Sea & stopped to see the Palm Tree farms and other wonders of the Coachella Valley. The impressive wind farm of Palm Springs was also a fairly quick drive from the property. But Casa de las Puertas delivered in location as well for me because each day, before the sun was too hot, I was able to have great runs (I even did the Turkey Trot!) A quick run to the mountains or to downtown or just to neighborhoods to discover wonderful properties and visual highlights like the "Pink Door". The kitchen and interior of the house had all of the amenities that we needed to cook or relax. We also rented a car & having the garage was a huge plus as well. Steve and Jayson were also great - they were not only accommodating to our needs but their response time was first rate! I can't say enough about this amazing oasis but know this - we will be back! Thank you!

Vacation with wonderful outdoor areas

  • 5 of 5

Casa de las Puertas more than lived up to the web site description and photos. The outdoor areas were absolutely fantastic, with great mountain views and lots of places to hang out. Depending on whether one wanted sun or shade, there were plenty of comfortable chairs to lounge or read in. We enjoyed using the two outdoor eating areas in back, one by the outdoor TV screen and the one under the umbrella.

The pool and spa were at perfect temperatures and we enjoyed using them from early in the morning to late afternoon, with the outdoor shower a nice way to finish up after a dip in the pool or spa. The back yard was very private. One of the most surprising joys was listening to the songs of the birds who also frequented the back yard throughout the day. In the evening, the firepit was a relaxing way to have a quiet conversation once the sun was down and the stars lit up the sky.

The owners, Steve and Jayson, were very accessible and responsive to our needs. For example, when we arrived we had trouble getting the garage door opener to work. They came over that day with a repairman who replaced the mal-functioning opener with a new one while Jayson and Steve answered our questions about working the remotes for the various TVs and operating the spa, all very helpful.

All in all, we were very happy to have chosen Casa de las Puertas for our Palm Springs vacation and look forward to returning.

Second stay at this lovely vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard - pool, spa, fountain, numerous seating areas and tv make this vacation truly a restful environment. Inside, all is provided just like being at home. All rooms (even the bedrooms) have doors leading to the front or backyards - letting you feel like being outside while inside! Dealing with the owners is very easy. Lots of cooking utensils, bedding, towels, etc. so you don't run out. Access to a garage is great. My husband and I will continue to return!

Lovely home with fantastic front and back yards

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved our stay here. Most of our time was spent in the pool and spa. We also really enjoyed watching the hummingbirds in the garden. Plenty of seating and umbrellas to get out of the sun. The colored glass firepits were pretty and very warm. Kitchen had everything. Bedrooms were very comfortable. We highly recommend this home.
