Recent Palm Desert vacation rental reviews

The place was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. The location was great, as we were able to walk to restaurants and shops. The pool was an absolute necessity. We loved the layout of the property, and will definitely be coming back.

Ride the Aerial Tramway up to almost the top of San Jacinto Peak, and share breathtaking valley and mountain views with the whole family. For a revitalizing soak in a mineral pool or a spa day, head half an hour northeast to Desert Hot Springs. Save your spot in the middle of it all with a Palm Desert vacation rental, with an outdoor pool and plenty of room for the whole crew.

Where is Palm Desert?

Located in the heart of the beautiful Coachella Valley in Southern California, Palm Desert boasts spectacular views of the San Jacinto Mountains. Palm Desert lies an hour away from Joshua Tree National Park and about an hour and a half from San Bernadino. 

Things to do 

The spectacular hikes around Palm Desert can keep you busy for days. The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is a zoo and botanical garden that has something everyone will enjoy. Escape the desert heat by enjoying the water slides and sparkling pools at the Palm Desert Aquatic Center, or head out for a thrilling off-road tour through the desert.

Of course, visiting the famous Joshua Tree National Park will only heighten your love for the outdoors with its exquisite flora and fauna. Interstate 10 swings right through the Coachella Valley if you’re gearing up for a fun-filled music festival, or drive 15 minutes northwest to Cathedral City to see the Fountain of Life and the historic Mary Pickford Theater. For a special night out, Cork Tree California Cuisine offers seafood, racks of lamb, wine, and even live entertainment.

Get to know a different side of Southern California by heading inland to one of our serene Palm Desert vacation homes or condos, and find much-needed recharge from daily life. Grab a home base in the heart of it all, where you can breathe easy under blue skies.
