We spent a long weekend at Casa Ocotillo and had a great time there! The place looks beautiful, both buildings and garden/pool area. An open kitchen with breakfast, water, soft drinks and beer was also great, and Vic was a hero at mixing drinks for us as we were enjoying the afternoon hours in the pool. It was also easily...

Once again, almost a year later, we and our two dogs have had a great experience at Casa Ocotillo. Second time, and we were greeted as friends by Brian and Vic. This small, private, well-thought-out and well cared for establishment so meets our needs and desires. We are provided morning snacks, fruit, coffee, rolls, bagels, juices, etc. All fresh and...

My partner and I were looking for a place to spend a special anniversary and since we travel quite a bit we wanted to stay at a guest house that accepted dogs (so we could spend the weekend with him rather than leaving him at home again). We also wanted a place with a nice pool, ammenities and was clothing...

The hosts, Vic and Brian were amazing. One or both of them was always around to make sure that we had everything that we needed. They take "above and beyond" to a whole other level! The best thing about our short stay was the feeling of community that you feel, both with the hosts and with the other guests. Next...

Casa Ocotillo is a hidden gem. Initially as you enter the resort you feel like if your in a tropical oasis. The grounds are full of palm trees and beautiful vegetation. Our suite, the BrokeBack room was very charming and cozy. Brian and Vic made us feel very welcome and at home. The guys even had a small BBQ for...

My partner and I are from Orlando, Florida and went to California last October for the usual tourist stuff - Disneyland, Universal Studios. While in LA we decided to drive down to Palm Springs for two days. We found Casa Ocotillo from Trip Advisor and talked the owners about this being our first trip to Palm Springs. The owners Brian...

We spent three nights at Casa Ocotillo during mid-May (in town for a friend's birthday party) and splurged for the big suite. Our room and the property were both fantastic. The inn is located in a nice residential area that is super-convenient to the center of Palm Springs. We made use of the beautiful grounds, especially the pool. Great views...

My partner arranged for a 5 day/4 night stay as my birthday celebration. This was our 3rd trip and it's always so nice to see Brian and Vic. Their hospitality is second to none! In fact, once they discovered our stay was in celebration of my birthday, they arranged to have a catered lunch delivered (so as not to conflict...

On a trip to Palm Springs earlier this year, I was introduced to Casa Ocotillo through a close friend and his partner, both of whom are very selective about their accomodations. The property, which is gated and walled for privacy, is discreetly tucked in a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood in Palm Springs and is dog-friendly. I was so impressed by...

We stayed at Casa Ocotillo with our dog. The owners made it so easy for us to go out and enjoy Palm Springs, taking care of the dog while we were gone. Our room was lovely with it's own yard.
