When you choose to stay in one of our Indio vacation rentals, you’re signing up for bright blue skies, ever-present sunshine, and gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains.
Far enough from nearby Palm Springs to escape the spring breakers and snowbirds, but close enough to take advantage of all of the world-class restaurants and fantastic nightlife, Indio is one of the most popular options for Coachella Valley vacation rentals for a very good reason!
Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival
The main appeal of choosing one of our Indio vacation rentals, of course, is the city’s proximity to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Known by most simply as “Coachella,” this two-weekend spring festival celebrates life, love, and music under the blazing heat of the desert sun. The festival’s rules page says it all when it encourages festival-goers to bring their sun block, hats, and sunglasses, but tells them to leave their selfie sticks and narcissism at home.
If you’re looking for fantastic Coachella lodging to celebrate this world-class music festival in style, staying in Indio is a great option!
