This is our second time staying with Brian and Vic and we truly enjoyed our stay. When we stay with them it is like staying with family (ones that you like). We celebrated our 3rd anniversary (20 true years) with them. The last time we stayed we got married. We are planning our trip for next year to celebrate our...

Fearing that I may repeat what has already been said, my partner and I were so impressed with the morning breakfast that Vic and Brian provide their guests. This was our (3rd) stay and we were so pleased that, in spite of being the only guests that first morning, the same wonderful assortment of breakfast foods was put out for...

WOW! Upholstered teak outdoor furniture” We’ve stayed at a lot of the resorts in Palm Springs and have never seen the investment in garden furniture like this. My partner and I were in the design business and we appreciated the quality of the outdoor furniture. It made spending time outdoors so much more comfortable and encourages you to spend less...

Casa Ocotillo is a great alternative getaway in Palm Springs in lieu of staying at a major hotel. In addition to the affordable pricing, the "homelike" atmosphere allows it's guests to relax in an environment of complete privacy. Unlike many smaller B&B's, the attention to your every need by it's owners, Brian &Vic is truly exceptional! For our good friend's...

When considering how to celebrate my 50th, I knew Casa Ocotillo would be the perfect place. It's better than home-away-from-home...relaxing was just a matter of arriving. Brian and Vic are always generous hosts and this trip was no exception. A beautiful orchid and brithday greetings waiting in the room were the perfect, simple touch. Thank you!

I’ve been coming to Palm Springs since the 70’s. When I was younger, I didn’t expect much – needed a pool, a towel and a place to sit poolside – and that ever important naked young man. Ok, fast forward – I’m no longer in my 20’s let alone my 30’s and the idea of staying where I once stayed...

We were there when Palm Springs had one of its off weekends with rain and nasty winds. Brian and Vic offered us passes to the Palm Springs Art Museum and recommendations for other things to do indoors, but we decided to take advantage of their video library, order in the catered lunch, and watch movies. We had over 1,000 Hollywood...

The Bungalows and Suites at Casa Ocotillo have been tailored for men with oversized custom high end furnishing, king size beds and two man rain showers with integrated benches for those times you want to shower with your partner. I can’t believe we never ran out of hot water. The 1930’s architecture and period details have been carefully maintained and...

This year, we stayed in the Grand Suite at Casa Ocotillo. The best perk for us was the secluded, private backyard and outdoor lounge area for our two babies, when I say babies, I mean our two mini Schnauzers, Biba and Angelo. The area was quiet and relaxing. Our kids could roam free and lounge around with us; thoroughly enjoy...

My partner and I traveled to Palm Springs for my birthday weekend. We were not sure where to stay, but we chose Casa Ocotillo and it was a great choice! The owners were so kind and helpful. It was birthday on Saturday and they even left a card in my room with a chilled bottle of white wine. I thought...
