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!

Save the Best for Last

  • 5 of 5
I along with seven of my friends recently stayed at this Palm Springs rental house. We were in town for four days and four nights for the Coachella Music Festival. We are music connoisseurs but once we arrived we did not want to leave this beautiful house. Upon arrival there was a gift bag waiting for us that included some organic coffee, a bottle of wine, and a card welcoming us to the house. Everything was elegantly displayed. It was as if we walked into a five star hotel. Joe had a binder of all the information on the house as well as a binder full of things to do in Palm Springs. Joe has the pool and jacuzzi conveniently run by an app in which you can control from any smartphone. This was perfect because you can start up the jacuzzi from your phone and by the time everyone is in their swim suits it is ready to go. Despite eight people rooming under the same roof, the houses' layout was perfectly spaced out in a way that everyone was extremely comfortable.

Wonderful & Clean!

Wonderful & Clean!
  • 5 of 5
My 4 cousins and I rented this home for a weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. It was high tech, green and organized! We controlled the pool lights and Jacuzzi with our iphones which was fun. Besides being nice and updated, the kitchen was well organized and had labels on the drawers to easily find what we were looking for. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were nice and big. There was plenty of room for all of us.

If I had a question , I called Joe and he easily rectified the very minor problem/answered my question. I only shared this to let you all know, he's easily accessible and he's a super nice guy! :)

I would definitely rent this home again and I hope to do so in the near future.

Thanks again Joe for your Wonderful and Clean home.

Terrific Property—Terrific Owners

  • 5 of 5
This property couldn't have been more ideal for us. The owners are highly organized and the instructional they provide at the house was simple, thorough and easy to follow. The tile floor throughout the front of the house was a no fuss way for the kids to travel from pool to house without much concern. The pool was just the right size to float on a lounge or play games. Everything was in good working order and the house was very clean. There's a good supply of spices, condiments, pots, pans, plates and cutlery. And the beds and pillows were to die for. Highly recommend!

Location

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.

Amenities

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.
