This was our first visit to Casa Ocotillo. We stayed for 4 nights during May, 2016 and our stay could not have been better. The accommodations were exactly as portrayed. The setting was just what I was looking for. We were looking for a quiet location that was out of the busy center of all the action, but easily accessible.... More

We stayed for five nights and six days at Casa Ocotillo. Brian and Vic, our hosts, were incredibly attentive. Coffee made and refilled all morning, with a fridge full of fresh fruit, muffins, sweet breads, yogurt and other morning treats regularly restocked, plus sodas, juices, water and other assorted beverages. The room was comfortable with a great king bed and... More

We stayed at Casa Ocotillo in the Grand Suite for 4 nights during April 2016. The owners Brian and Vic made certain that our stay was perfect and it was in every way. Since we had our dog traveling with us it was important that we stayed in a dog friendly atmosphere and our dog seemed as pleased as we... More

I've lost track of the exact number of times we've stayed at Casa Ocotillo, but would guess it is well over 25 over the past five or six years. It simply never disappoints ... from the feeling of being in a secluded luxury resort to the amazing hospitality of owners Brian and Vic, it's a tremendous value. Check out the... More

We enjoyed a wonderful visit to Palm Springs and Casa Ocotillo for the New Year. Vic and Brian, the owners and very gracious and accommodating hosts, spared no effort, as always, to ensured that we had a memorable time. While we already had plans for NYE, they invited us to stop by for champagne and inquired if we needed assistance... More

We miss our Casa Ocotillo, and our room, and the patio, and the pool, and your guests, all the dogs, the nice chats, great cocktails, dinners, great people, the fabulous scenery and weather, etc.... Our home away from home! Nothing short of Brigadoon meets Camalot. You guys created a special place and time for a lot of appreciative people. Good... More

We visited PS a couple months ago and stayed at Casa Ocotillo for the very first time. The place we usually stay at in PS had closed recently, so we needed to find another accommodation. After a fairly extensive search for accommodations, we chose Casa Ocotillo based on the positive reviews as well as the pictures of the rooms on... More

I got the chance to stay here again at the end of March 2016. I parked inside the electronic gate that keeps our cars safe. I appreciate this because I stayed at another hotel where I parked in an open lot and my car was vandalized. I thought the room was perfect and very clean. I appreciate the 24hr kitchen... More

We spent a week from late December into early January 2016 in two different rooms, the Courtyard Suite and the Grand Suite, both with private courtyards, one with a large dirt-and-citrus-tree yard for our two dogs. We chose this place because it advertises as being dog-friendly. The weather was unusually cold throughout our stay, which probably denied us whatever ambience... More

This is the perfect, low key getaway place to stay in the dessert. The property is quiet and secluded while still being right in the middle of all the Palm Springs action. With only five or six rooms, it feels more like staying at someone's incredibly appointed home. The rooms are big and sunny, with huge baths and lots of... More
