OUTSTANDING- THE RATING SCALE WOULDNT TAKE THE FIFTH BUTTON- We rate this property- OUTSTANDING... ON ALL - Rooms, Service, Value, Cleanliness and dining- inside and out :) This is a beautiful place to relax, get away, and be in a beautiful friendly environment. Patrick and Leah have done it right! Food is excellent every time. we have been there more than once and brought close family back... even with the heat~ this place is the best place we've found in the desert!

Relaxing Getaway

5 on August 01, 2016

Absolutely loved this quaint B&B and the owners Leah and Patrick. We felt like family the moment we walked through the door. Only 2 rooms to choose from which made it a top choice for some peace and quiet. The backyard oasis was gorgeous and we put the pool to good use during our stay. The rooms were well kept and very clean. Close proximity to many restaurants and recreation. We will be going back for a visit again in the cooler months. You will not be disappointed with this wonderful B&B. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here!

Perfect get away place

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!!!!

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

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.
