A Treasure in the Desert

5 on March 15, 2016

Tucked away with a beautiful view of the mountains. Leah and Patrick made us feel right at home. Rooms are charming and comfortable. A definite must!


Hidden Gem in the Desert

My mom and I had the most beautiful stay at Bella Cristia last week! I had earned a trip to a resort in Pam Springs, but we wanted to come in an extra day ahead. I found Bella Cristia and Mom and I both agree that a week in this spectacular haven of solitude and caring would have been way better than the one night we were blessed to enjoy. Strong relational connection with the lovely owners, Leah and Patrick, every little thing taken care of down to the finest details, including a special poolside snack with a glass of wine and cheese in the afternoon! We were picked up at the airport, driven to a recommended restaurant for dinner, and had a special tour of the area while on our way to our resort. The backyard private pool was such a highlight, with a spectacular view of the mountains, and the constant coo of morning doves. Gourmet breakfast lovingly prepared in the morning by Patrick and served by Leah...and all the while, enjoying loving affection from the beautiful fur babies who are dearly loved by the owners. Can't say enough...have added a longer stay next time to my bucket list!!! Thank you again, Patrick and Leah!!!!

What a find! Great value, friendliness, neighborhood and location. Would stay here again in a minute. The hosts, Leah and Patrick and their two friendly dogs, made me feel like family. Thank you for making my stay so wonderful. Bud Charlot


1st stay at a b&b

5 on January 05, 2016

It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. It was wonderful. It felt like we were at home. The room was amazing! It had a sunk in tub , there was a pool and Jacuzzi outside our door. The owners, are wonderful, the husband is a amazing cook. Our breakfast we were given was excellent, it was food a chef would make. So good! Plus the price was right and they had the 2 most adorable dogs!! Hands down the best bed and breakfast in the cochella valley


ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!

I was in absolute awe of this place. The backyard/pool area is breathtaking. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. It is SIMPLY GORGEOUS. The bedroom was comfortable and VERY clean. The host and hostess were both SO sweet and adorable. We felt completely comfortable and LOVED hearing their stories and actually visiting with them. They gave us plenty of privacy and hospitality as well. For my first Bed & Breakfast experience, this really has set the bar. Their kind dog Dusty Rose was so sweet and well mannered. The place is gorgeous and you can see that they have put a lot of thought into every detail. The bedding is gorgeous and comfortable. The decorations and small details such as bathroom amenities (cotton swabs, toothpaste, face wipes, etc.) really make this place special. We will absolutely return to this place. The price was a bit higher than normal because we went for festival weekend, which is really our only gripe, but is somewhat to be expected. Other than that, everything was sooo amazing and we were very happy with our choice.


All you can want in a B and B

My wife and I had a terrific three day stay at Bella Cristia. Lea and Patrick are wonderful hosts: warm, gracious and informative. The rooms are spacious and very nicely furnished. Superior linens and bath towels. Delicious breakfasts, topped by Patrick's special breakfast on the final day which was delicious but probably should not be revealed! Backyard pool area is just gorgeous, looking up to the mountains (pictures do not do it justice). First class experience all around.


superb B&B

Great hosts, great view, great food, great hot tub! Great location. We are going back next year


Stay here, it's wonderful

The B&B is special. It's beautifully fitted out, superb location, and you are 'served' by a delightful couple in Lea and Patrick. I couldn't fault this place, we were made comfortable, treated as real guests, nothing was too much. The outside pool area is unbelievable, and while we didn't use the spa, we should have. Our hosts recommended us to great restaurants and made bookings for us. Perfection.


Beautiful B & B

Bella Cristia blew us away. The place is awesome. Small and quiet with breathtaking views. Hosts, Leah and Patrick are the nicest people you will ever meet. Can't wait to go back.
