What a wonderful boutique place to Spend the night. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are very well designed and presented. The grounds are especially pretty at night with the palms all out up. Well worth the visit if you prefer a quieter stay than at other hotels

We had a lovely time and would highly recommend the lodge (even though there was a heat wave in the low desert)! Very nice to stay close to the pool so we could go in and out for drinks and to cool off. Owners were very hospitable and friendly. There had been road construction in front of the lodge leading...

We received such a pleasant welcome from Frank when we went to visit friends who were staying there. They allowed us to spend time in the pool and gardens with our friends which we thought was wonderful. I was very impressed by the property and facilities which includes a kitchen so you can use the plates etc for your own...

The owners were very easy to work with and the service was excellent. They loved the neon diving lady and the rock garden. We had breakfast several times and the meals were great, We spent...

Their rates were great so my friend and I decided to book the room at...

We stayed at many places during our trip on the westcoast. This was by far the best. Nice location, a lot of effort on detail and design, great service. Perfect to enjoy some relaxing days in Palm Springs. Very nice pool and garden / barbecue area.

It's quiet, serene, clean, comfy, home-y, modern, well-planned, great parking, central to everything, and the room is wonderful! We stayed in Room #1 and it is my favorite room. I must return to...

A fab hotel - only 10 rooms or so, most of which are poolside. Pushbikes available foc to see the surrounding area. Buffet breakfast was very good and the staff that we met were most helpful. Free parking as well. Overall 10/10

This is a small hotel with just 11 rooms. The entrance is immediately apparent, but we understand that is being addressed, car parking is outside the walled hotel area. On walking through either of the doors from the street you are presented with beautiful gardens, pool, hot tub, BBQ area, outside dining area, cycles, sun loungers, bowls area and seating...
