Need a place to stay for 4th of July? Palm Springs Film Festival? 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 Bed and Breakfast experience catering primarily to gay men. 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. Our costs for heating are $50 per day for a minimum of 2 days, but we prorate your share based on the total number of guests we have in the house during your visit. There is no surcharge for the heated jacuzzi, which is included in the price of the room, though we would appreciate advanced notice so that we can make sure it’s up to the right temperature for your use).
Time for bed? Retire to one of our well-appointed guest rooms. The large master suite is furnished with a California King-sized bed, a large walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with double vanities and large glass-walled shower. All guest rooms are also furnished with flat panel televisions with premium cable service and high speed wireless internet connections.
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.
