The space

This is a listing of our guest room No. 2 (low bed with futon) with a bathroom next to it for those on a budget. The room can accommodate up to two persons, and guests may need to share the bathroom in case other guest room is taken by another group (which we think will not happen often - feel free to ask us if the other room is taken during the period you are thinking to book this one). We have another listing of the other room guest room No. 1 (Room in an Oasis in the Desert) for those who prefer a high bed with spring mattress.

NOTE: During PNB Paribas Tennis Tournament, Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals, there is a 3 night minimum.

Please note that we have two cats in case you are allergic to cats. You can close both your bedroom door and the hall way door to your bedroom to keep cats out and for your privacy.

Our home is built in a mid-century modern style and has a combined living room, kitchen, and dining room all brightly lit by wall to wall glass windows and doors, with an outdoor patio extending the full length of the windows. It is in a compound with 20 other homes surrounding a football-size shared backyard, which includes a swimming pool, basketball hoop, volleyball court and grapefruit trees (feel free to pick). Our home is at the top of the compound and has an excellent view of the shared yard/pool and the mountains beyond.

I highly recommend Rick's Airbnb. The house was well located, very clean and the many windows in the kitchen/living room provided a beautiful view of the backyard. The hosts were very discreet and helpful.
