Palm Desert is part of the Coachella Valley in the wider Colorado Desert, just like its famous neighbour, Palm Springs. This city is quite the exclusive area in sunny California, located east of Los Angeles and northeast of San Diego and backed by the geologically marvellous Joshua Tree National Park. Palm Desert is a great choice for holidaymakers. Once here, don’t miss visiting The Living Desert and Zoo Gardens, shopping in The Gardens on El Paseo, and going on one or two hikes in Coachella Valley Preserve and the surrounding sun-scorched mountains. Needless to say that when in California, you have to plan your stay in style. So here are the best Airbnbs with pool in Palm Desert, California.
1. Dog-friendly rental with a pool and spa
Unlike other rental properties in sunny California, this one welcomes your furry friends. It features three bedrooms, with the master sporting a walk-in closet and two bathrooms, ideal for a group of six.
For outdoor fun, guests will find a spacious backyard with a private pool, an adjacent spa pool, and a shaded patio with an outdoor lounge and dining table for al fresco dining. The skylight on the patio roof located just above the spa pool is ideal for star-gazing. The entire backyard is fenced so your pets can roam around freely.
