Perfect House - Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at the Green Indigo home. Was a group of 8 guys for the 2nd weekend of Coachella. The house had more than everything we needed was a quick 20-25 minute drive to the Coachella fields. Also only 5-10 minutes to the airport and other Palm Springs Spots. The house was clean, well organized and had more than everything we needed. Was located on a very quite street with the wind well protected by the cove.

Incredible value from other properties i contacted - Would stay at the home again!

Spring Break with family!

  • 5 of 5
My family with young children stayed here during our Spring Break 2015 and my parents from the midwest met us at the property for our week long stay. We had a great time and the home was everything the website advertised and more. I would highly recommend this rental property and Joe as he was very responsive to our needs and very helpful whenever ever anything came up. Thanks so much Joe and we will definitely keep you in mind for future Spring Break trips!

Great girls trip

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with 6 girls for the BNP Paribas tournament. We loved the lounge chairs, and the pool was beautiful. The owner was great to work with. The kitchen was well organized with everything we needed. Everyone commented on how nice the beds were, including the pull out couch. The only suggestion for the owner would be to add more mirrors next to outlets. This only makes a difference when you have a bunch of ladies trying to get ready. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Well-appointed kitchen and great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5
As our family gathers only once a year it was a welcome find to be in a such a wonderfully outfitted home. The kitchen and outdoor grill supported tons of gourmet delights and the pool and hot tub were nearly always occupied. Beds were totally comfy and the location was lovely. Lemon tree in front yard also a gem. The only drawback was the bedroom doors are frosted glass which lets light through, so if you have small kids or early to bed folks be aware that some light will leak into their dens. Otherwise a fantastic place all around, and the Eco/green bent is welcome to see.
Note - if you have older disabled folks the layout is great since it's all one level, just a tiny threshold at front door that a small ramp can accommodate for the wheelchair bound. There isn't a recliner in the living room setup but we rented one for the week from Rent-a-Center and they delivered and picked it up right to the door.
Also - Joe responded immediately whenever we had a question. Great host and great place.

Fun time with my family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Green Indigo for a week last week (me, my husband, and our two year-old) for our 10-year wedding anniversary. We found that the owners were very helpful and easy to work with, and they even surprised us with an anniversary gift, which was very thoughtful. It was really easy to have a small child at Green Indigo, since there was a pack n' play and high chair, as well as a bathtub, plus sippy cups, small utensils, etc. We loved having access to the pool and spa, and that is where we spent most of our time (especially since it was 100+ degrees several days we were in town)! Our daughter loved the pool toys, and my husband and I got a ton of use out of the ping pong table. The house and yard were very private, and we also loved having a sitting room area in the master. Green Indigo is easy driving distance (15-20 min max) from pretty much anywhere you would want to go in Palm Springs/Palm Desert/Rancho Mirage, etc, which gave us a lot of flexibility with what we did while we were there. We had a very enjoyable trip, and hope to come back sometime soon! For some reason, I'm unable to click on the stars to rate the property, but I would give it a 5!

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at the Green Indigo. The home was extremely clean and well appointed. The location was great, no more than 10 minutes from any shopping. The best part though was the salt water pool and spa. Our kids loved it! One of our sons is sensitive to chlorine so the salt water pool was the perfect solution. He was able to enjoy the pool for our entire stay with no reactions. It really was one of our best most relaxing vacations and we can't wait to go back!

From the Owner

We first discovered the Cathedral City Cove neighborhood almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we rented vacation homes in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage, and we found that homes in 'The Cove' area of Cathedral City were on bigger lots, with better views, at better values. Also, regular Palm Springs visitors know that the desert wind can be very bad at times, especially in the Spring. North Palm Springs is the windiest area, but sometimes the wind spreads to Central & South Palm Springs. Protected by a circle of the Santa Rosa Mountains, 'The Cove' is one of the least windy neighborhoods in the entire desert. We are situated between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. We are only about 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs and 5 minutes to Rancho Mirage.

From the Owner

'Green Indigo' was extensively remodeled in 2010 utilizing state-of-the-art green building standards and techniques. Waste was minimized, while re-use and recycling was emphasized. The home demonstrates many eco/green features. Here's just a sampling of what you will experience in your stay at 'Green Indigo': * Energy Star appliances * Solar thermal pool & spa heating * Salt water pool w/LED color lighting * Energy efficient pool pump & low-NOX natural gas pool/spa heater * Green cleaning products * Dramatically less exposure than normal to indoor chemicals/contaminants (e.g., toxic formaldehyde and VOCs) * 100% recycled glass tile in bathrooms * High recycled content stainless steel used in kitchen * Recycled content carpet tiles in dining area and bedrooms * Extensive use of quality, vintage/modern furniture * Most furniture & cabinetry made from sustainable woods * High efficiency, yet high performance, WaterSense-certified toilets * Low flow, yet high performance, faucets and shower heads * Double pane, low-e windows and doors, south-side with special desert glazing and/or shade protection * High efficiency, refrigerant-free desert evaporative cooler in addition to EnergyStar-installed air conditioner * High efficiency, top rated front loading washer/dryer * Exterior is mostly paint-free stucco with impregnated color * Interior walls feature paint-free venetian plaster or no-VOC paints * Drought-tolerant, native landscaping * Extra insulation (including 85% recycled demin UltraTouch) We were careful to chose green products that would meet or exceed all of your expectations of design, comfort and function. We don't like compromises. What good is a stylish sofa that's uncomfortable? or a water efficient toilet that requires two flushes to work?! We're happy with the result, and we hope you are, too.
