DLE did a fabulous job making our stay special

From the highly skilled chef and fun butler recommendations as well as the thorough mid stay cleaning service, we had everything needed to make our stay joyful and relaxing on this non stop gorgeous and perfectly appointed property! The team at DLE was always there to support us in a friendly way. Thank you and what a gorgeous home - we felt so lucky to enjoy it with dear friends for my husband’s birthday weekend!

Perfect for Our Group

14 friends of 25 years had a blast at this well appointed home, close to El Paseo and hiking. Lots of cozy places to sit and visit and the landscaping is gorgeous.

A delightful home with a beautiful estate. My initial reaction was sheer amazement, thinking "Wow, oh my god!" This house never ceased to amaze with its functionality. The design is very thoughtful, boasting a vast green territory equipped with everything one needs for a carefree stay. I'd like to give a special thanks to Desert Luxury Estates. The staff is incredibly polite and responsive, always quick to answer any questions. I was very meticulous in selecting a home, having reviewed numerous options, and I can confidently recommend choosing this house without a second thought. You won't regret it.

We had a wonderful stay at Calistoga Retreat! It was such a cool private set-up! We had a group of 4 couples. It was nice that every couple had a bedroom with en suite bathroom. One of our group had recently had ankle surgery—so it worked out well that she could stay on the main house and it only required one small step for her to maneuver. We all loved the game-room garage and the pool. We had so much fun! The airstream looked like a labor of love—very cool inside! The sound of the fountain was so peaceful. We appreciated the pool towels and plastic glasses for pool use. It was clean and welcoming—we felt right at home. We would recommend this house for anyone who wants a fun and relaxing place to hang out!

DLE was a gracious host as they were very responsive to our messages. The space was exactly as described and had everything that my family and I were looking for. Great space with plenty of amenities so you will never run out of things to do. DLE has never let me down whenever I book with them.

Desert Luxury Estates & this staycation definitely made another memorable experience for our family. We will definitely stay here again or at another of their listings— so attentive to detail, quick response time, extra supplies, unique home designs, and of course child & pup safe. This place was quiet, quaint & spacious for our family size. The house was always temp cool, beautifully decorated & stocked with more than enough. The grounds were clean, trip safe, and well taken care of. We are more than happy for its worth and the memories created, thank you!

Carmen E. July 19, 2023

The place is a beautiful desert oasis that one’s family can enjoy. We were extremely pleased with the fully stocked kitchen and the many areas to gather. Regardless of where you are inside the house you have incredible views of nature’s wonder of humming birds, dragonflies & rabbits. The outdoors is amazingly curated: water fountain with koi fish, fireplaces and fabulous vegetation cactus, trees & plants let’s not forget the gorgeous pool.

Definitely was one of the best Trips we have done, the pictures were exactly what we saw everything was beautiful being away from the city…. We needed a recharge and this was perfect.

We had a great stay ! I definitely recommend this villa ! It's exactly like in the pictures. We had some issues with heat as it was very cold there during our stay, and the management team was very reactive and tried there best to fix it. Overall, amazing villa, amazing service.

This house was perfect! I brought my company leadership team out for a retreat and we could not have been happier. The house is so well designed for entertaining. Each bungalow was comfortable with great decor. The beds and the bedding were very soft and luxurious. The kitchen had every amenity and appliance you could think of. The common areas were built for entertaining and there were plenty of little nooks throughout the property for an escape from the big group. They thought of everything. We will DEFINITELY stay here again and highly recommend it!!

Beautiful Designer Home and Top Service

We had the best time at Calistoga Retreat. The home was decorated so beautifully, and there is everything already included and more that you could need to have a relaxing and stress-free getaway. Throughout our stay, we had a couple questions about technology/power fuse, and someone came over right away to fix it. We felt so taken care of! Highly recommend you book!

Luciana C. August 17, 2022

Calistoga retreat was such a wonderful experience . The lay out of the house is so interesting and allowed our group of 7 to have some privacy when needed . The addition of the livable Airstream adds even more personality to the overall experience . Wonderful stay !
