Gap Specials! Find any weekday gaps in the schedule for the current or next month and ask for a special offer! Nestled in the eclectic Cathedral Cove neighborhood, this Adobe themed oasis has shady private desert gardens to lounge in between dips in the secluded spacious naturalistic pool. Spa heating is always free. Pool heating cost varies by the season. Dogs $10/night.

The space

Privacy galore. Eco-friendly. 24 panels on the roof generate all the electricity you can use and more. There is an evaporative cooler which uses half the electricity of air-conditioning and it's designed to be used with windows and doors open so you don't have to feel cut off from the outside. Or turn on the central AC if you like. The Cove has no street lights and the night sky dazzles with stars. There are several dining options within walking distance or downtown Palm Springs is just 12 miles away.

Guest access

Master bedroom with king bed sleeps 2. Private bath. Fireplace. Faces the back garden and pool area. Flat screen TV. Patio.

2nd bedroom with queen bed sleeps 2. At the opposite end of house from Master. Flat screen TV. Shares Jack-and-Jill bathroom with 3rd bedroom. Faces the front garden. Patio.

3rd bedroom with queen bed. Shares Jack-and-Jill bathroom with 2nd bedroom. Faces the front garden. Patio.

Kitchen/Dining area is fully outfitted with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal or just coffee and toast. The banquette seats eight. Or dine on the kitchen patio which seats four. Fireplace.

Living area features an adobe fireplace, 56" flat-screen TV, sofa, love-seat, and desk.

Parking for one large or two small vehicles under the carport inside the compound. Plenty of on-street parking. Driveway gate opens manually. Leave it open for convenience or close it for privacy and extra security. Pool is bordered with flagstone and the elevated spa cascades into pool. Heat the spa in minutes with a touch of a button for a relaxing end-of-day soak. Rinse off in the outdoor shower before heading inside.

Interaction with guests

We have key-code based self check-in but are just blocks away if you need any assistance.

Other things to note

While six is the maximum occupancy, the two small queen bedrooms share a small but charming bathroom with a shower stall that can only be accessed via either of the queen bedrooms. Taken together, the queen bedrooms form a master suite almost equal to the king suite so the house is perfect for two adult couples. Or a couple with up to four small kids. But 3 adult couples are allowed and there is plenty of comfortable common area for everyone to have a good time.

This house has louvered interior doors throughout. While the Master and Queen bedroom are on opposite ends of the house, if you desire absolute audible privacy, this house may not be for you.

Love the evaporative cooler for spring and fall. The cooler only works with doors or windows OPEN. So don't feel cooped up inside with sterile air-conditioned silence. Or use the AC, your choice.

Spa Heating is always free. Pool heat rates vary based on the month and your favorite temperature.

Carlson was a very good host and showed us around the house when we arrived which was helpful. The house is lovely and very unique which made it feel even more of a holiday! It is in a good area with easy access to the whole valley and a lovely pool.

Such a wonderful place. There is a great backyard oasis and a fun space indoors to cook/eat/hangout.

The adobe getaway was a dream! Spacious, relaxing, airy and the perfect private oasis. We LOVED the pool and spa, two outdoor lounging areas (shade or sun) and slept SO well. The house stayed cool with the evaporative cooler, it was incredibly clean and the kitchen was very well appointed. We are already looking at dates to return next year when we can stay here again. Thank you for a marvelous stay!

We are active in the local civic and cultural scene and find time for beaching and camping and hiking and biking around the desert southwest and CA. One of us will meet you at the Casa for check-in, explain the quirks of the house and pool (don't worry, it's easy), give you tip…
