À propos de ce logement
The large Master Suite accommodates two with a luxurious king size bed, sitting area, full cable tv/wifi, huge walk in closet, and a private modern bathroom ensuite. The sliding glass doors open onto the pool and provide magnificent mountain views.
Need a place to stay for Modernism Week? the Palm Springs Film Festival? the White Party? 4th of July? Gay Pride? Thanksgiving? Christmas and New Year's? Or perhaps you just want to get out of town for a weekend? Welcome to Casa Cerritos, a straight-friendly gay Bed and Breakfast. Experience the relaxing atmosphere of life in the Desert, as well as the exciting events and entertainments of the Palm Springs season from the comfort of this well-appointed, conveniently located private home just minutes away from Palm Canyon, Arenas, and the heart of the downtown shopping and nightlife in central Palm Springs. We're also right next door to the famous (or infamous!) Movie Colony, home to the stars.
Imagine yourself basking (or frolicking) in the natural outdoor beauty and hedged privacy of the huge backyard - swaying palm trees, a large rock-edged swimming pool and jacuzzi, and a million dollar view of the mountains. Sip your morning coffee or tea in our informal breakfast nook, or in the cool morning air of the back porch, or even under the palms beyond the swimming pool. Spend the rest of the day taking in the rays or swimming and soaking in the clothing optional pool and jacuzzi. (If you are staying during the colder winter months and want a heated swimming pool please ask about the heating surcharge for the pool.)
It's 5 o'clock somewhere? Join us for hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and conversation in the sophisticated comfort of the main salon with its mirrored fireplace and a magnificent view of the mountains - or perhaps outdoors by the pool. Dinner may be served, if you choose to indulge, in the elegant dining room, with its large rock fireplace - or alfresco, under the stars, on the poolside dining terrace. After dinner, feel free to join us, along with any other guests in residence, in the large media room for a little television or a movie from our extensive DVD library or online Netflix. Special requests for TV shows, movies, or music? Just ask.
Time for bed? Retire to the large Master Suite. With west-facing windows and sliding glass doors in both the bedroom and the connected private bathroom, the Master Suite opens directly onto its own furnished sitting terrace, the huge back garden and pool area, and breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains. At night the iconic light of the Palm Springs Tram station lights up the highest peak. The room is furnished with an extra long king size bed, large nightstands, and a comfortable leather reading chair. In addition, a small desk and stool for computer work/letter-writing, a large flat screen premium cable television, and high speed wifi internet make the Master Suite a fully self-contained living/work space. As a point of interest, the bedside tables and long chest of drawers, as well as the armoire in the walk-in closet, were part of the bedroom furnishings of the late great Lena Horne. A huge walk-in closet that provides more than enough space for clothes, or even a full ironing board, lies just off the short corridor connecting the bedroom with its fully private ensuite bathroom. Recently re-modelled, the large contemporary bathroom has a floating double sink vanity and an oversized glass-walled walk-in shower, as well as the other requisite plumbing. It also has a full sliding glass door that opens directly into the backyard for easy access straight from pool to shower.
So much for the Bed - now for the Breakfast. Want a full English or American style breakfast? Or perhaps a lighter Continental breakfast? Just let us know your preferences. In fact, if you have any particular preferences while you are our guest, we would like to know what they are. Have a favorite snack, hors d'oeuvres, or cocktail? Let us know and we'll stock them. Like orchids but allergic to daisies? Let us know and we'll get it right. Need advice on where to find the best hiking trails? Bicycles for rent? Bars? Restaurants?
We'll do our best to help answer all your questions.
If you care to go beyond the inclusive breakfast while visiting with us, for a small extra charge to cover costs we can also provide you with a lunch and/or dinner. If you would like to entertain while you are here, for a modest additional fee (plus the cost of supplies) we can arrange cocktail parties, pool parties, even barbeques from our grill, or more intimate private dinner parties in the formal dining room for up to 12. (Travis cooks!)
As your host, my goal is to make your visit as pleasurable as possible so that you will want to come again and again - and recommend us to your friends. Indeed, after staying at Casa Cerritos I hope you will feel like you've been staying with good friends.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests are welcome to make use of the public areas of the house, including the breakfast room and main salon, as well as the large back yard and pool area. We operate as a classic English style home bed and breakfast, consequently there is limited access to kitchen facilities: feel free to make coffee and tea, toast, cereal, etc., or to store drinks and leftovers in the fridge on a space available basis. There is also a microwave for reheating leftovers. In general, however, guests are expected to take lunch and dinner out unless other arrangements have been made and general cooking facilities are not provided.

Hi all, I am a professional historian and textbook author who loves to cook, fences, goes to the gym, swims, skis, loves to travel, plays pool and cards, hikes, and lots besides.
