Wonderful Oasis

4.4 on November 29, 2017

We had a lovely stay at Bella Cristia. Room was great including all of the toiletry extras if something was forgotten. The backyard and pool area was generous and a great retreat. Awesome breakfasts. Highly recommend and much better than staying in busier Palm Desert or Palm Springs. Good location for everything in the area.

Did not want to leave!

The arrival through the departure was flawless. The place is beautiful and charms from the moment you pull in the drive. The host Leah and Patrick are even better. Everything about the Bella Cristia, the spirit, looks, feel, cleanliness, and on and on is what we strive for when leaving home. The accommodations are well planned and appointed. The food was constantly excellent and meticulously thought out daily by the hosts. I would highly recommend this as the place in California. It surpasses all other stays at the many and various venues I have visited in the past. If staying anywhere near the desert of California, STAY HERE!!

"Stay"cation at Bella Cristia

We stayed in one of the two suites in the beautiful La Quinta home of Leah and Patrick. It was a surprise for my husband and we took advantage of the fun bikes, the relaxing jacuzzi and the private entrance to our suite. This was nice after a short Uber ride to Old Town. We were served a spectacular tray of olives, cashews and yummy wine upon arrival. We were surrounded by majestic mountains, hot coffee, great breakfasts, luxurious linens, a gorgeous backyard and two precious well behaved family pups. We recommend Bella Cristia highly!

a wonderful place

Bella Cristia is by far one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed out!! My husband and I will definitely be making Bella Cristia a place we visit at least once a year.

Outstanding on every level

Relaxing Getaway

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!
