* Important Info about This Home's Location
This home is in the Desert Hot Springs "Spa Zone" where you can drive or walk to many natural Mineral Spring Spas like Sea Mountain Lifestyle Resort, El Morocco Inn and Spa Resort, and Miracle Springs Spa. World famous Spas like Two Bunch Palms are just a 10 minute drive away. DHS is a very quirky off-the-beaten-path working community that's only 20 minutes from Palm Springs, but this is not the house for you if you insist on paying a lot more money to be in a luxury neighborhood or walking distance to the Palm Springs action. As a smaller community there are limited services (e.g., no movie theater, limited fancy restaurants), but it's a nice retreat and/or jumping off point for a number of area attractions: Dozens of nearby Spas, 150+ Designer Outlet Shops at Cabazon 20 miles away, and the amazingly beautiful Joshua Tree National Monument which is only 30 miles away. And don't forget, you're saving a lot of money and Downtown Palm Springs is only about 13 miles away. Lastly, a nice desert hike with a valley view (Brice/Swiss Canyon Trail) is only 1 block away.

We were looking for a nice house with a private pool in a quiet neighbourhood away from the busyness of downtown Palm Springs, and Joe's house certainly fit the bill. The home has a great view of the mountains and the wind farm, the backyard pool area is enclosed and private. So nice just to hang out, swim, and read, with sometimes the only noise were the 2 doves and desert songbirds. House has a large open floorplan with good amenities, garage is a nice to have for your rental car. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again. Thanks Joe for all your help, prompt emails, and professionalism.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this home! The home is very nicely appointed with all you need to kick back and relax. We traveled with our 5 month old, and took advantage of the pack & play and highchair provided. Also, the heated pool/spa were a favorite for all! We travel to Palm Springs every year...and look forward to staying here again!
A group of teachers rented this home for a conference at the Palm Springs Convention Center. It was an easy twenty minute drive, door to door. The home had everything you might need. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. There were plenty of towels for the bath and pool. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans. There were spices and simple pantry staples in the house. We were able to make breakfast and dinner every night which saved a ton of money. Joe and Doug were great communicators and very understanding. The furniture was comfy and perfect after a long day of learning. The house is just outside the main part of town so we had easy access to stores and Starbucks. I would recommend this home for a group of adults or families. Thank you!
We stayed at the property for two weeks in January 2015 with three kids 7 to 10 years old. The property is roomy and modern with great attention to details and pool access from almost every room. We could relax inside while kids played in the pool as you can see the pool well from the living room. We were really impressed with attention to details - everything you may need is there including lots of towels, bathroom and kitchen supplies and even condiments and cooking oil. The property is located in a very quiet spot and feels very private. Salt water pool and spa are amazing for your skin and mood. Owner was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions. We had a great stay and highly recommend the property.
This was a wonderful getaway for my two boys (ages 7 and 11) and I for spring break. The house listing is accurate in every detail. We found it to be well stocked and well loved. The pool/spa was wonderful. While we did venture out some to see a few things (Cabots Pueblo, Palm Springs Air Museum, Windmill Farm, and Villagefest in Palm Springs), it was nice to have a place to call home for our time away. I am finding this a much better way to spend vacations (in a house) rather than a hotel. Joe and Doug do an amazing job of keeping everything easy and at your fingertips. The "book" lists and explains everything and the owners are accessible, kind and helpful. My boys are now set on a destination Spring Break every year...gulp...what have I started? We would visit again, and stay here in a heartbeat. Thank you for your great hospitality!!!
The home was very nice and well stocked with everything that we needed for our vacation! There was plenty of room for all of us and Joe even greeted us with a nice house-warming gift. The pool system is perfect and beautiful. Joe has clearly thought of everything from TV's to towels for the pool and has everything set up for you to just arrive and have fun. Definitely looking forward to coming back in the future!
Hi Joe, The house and our stay were both great! We loved it! The only thing better would have been if it was longer... We liked that the house had everything we needed - nice BBQ, excellent blender, nice outside seating areas, etc. etc. But the very best was the pool and spa - so sad to have to leave them behind. We really needed that dose of sun & fun - hoping it will see us through to Spring up here in Western Washington (came home to wind, rain, and 38 degrees - bleh). We'll definitely stay at Mission Springs again when we get our next chance to visit sunny SoCal! Thanks for everything, Katie & Mark
My Husband, daughter and I vacationed at Joe's Dessert Hot Springs home February 7th thru the 9th. Joe has a beautiful home that is equipped with everything you need for a lovely vacation. The home is spotless, the grounds well maintained, and Joe supplied plenty of information on how everything operates (inside and out). We spent the majority of our time in the pool and jacuzzi (coming from cold northern Michigan, we thoroughly enjoyed the warm weather and warm pool). We traveled to beautiful Joshua Tree National Park which is an easy 30 mile drive and did a bit of hiking. So enjoyable. If you like to grill, Joe has an awesome in-line natural gas grill. We prepared all of our meals in house, so cannot comment on nearby restaurants. The listing accurately described the rental's appearance and amenities and I would definitely recommend this location to family and friends. We hope to do this vacation again!!
I had never been to Desert Hot Springs, but when everything else I looked at in Palm Springs was already booked for my short notice trip, I stumbled upon this gem and our group of 7 college friends celebrated our 5th annual get together there. The house only has 2 bathrooms, but the house is spacious and there was ample room for all 7 of us to be comfortable all the time. Joe the owner was super fast at answering a zillion of our questions before booking and before arrival. Basically, you don't need to bring anything but yourselves, your food and beverages. The house is totally stocked from a great fire pit to cool wicker lounge chairs, to board games and pool floats, great towels, Dr. Bronners soap and even organic olive oil and martini glasses! We really stretched to come up with a creative criticism: the new fridge doesn't have any water hooked up to the door (yet), but to compensate Joe provided brita pitchers and ice cube trays. He's thought of everything, so you can just relax and have fun. The girls liked the full length mirrors, hairdryers, soft towels, organic lotions, and perfect sleep beds. The guys liked the deep pool, the hot jacuzzi with strong jets, the giant flat screen TVs (master bed and living room), and the natural gas bbq. We all liked the color flashing pool lights - they were so cool! Be sure to take his recommendations for restaurants in Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs; he knows the desert inside-out and gave us spot on recommendations. We hope to come back again next year.
