Frequently Asked Questions

Quick answers to the questions we get asked most often by potential guests

Can we bring our pooch?

Well-trained dogs are welcome at Via Miraleste. We do not charge extra for our four legged guests but do ask for a pet addendum to the standard contract.

When is check in and check out?

Check in is at 4:00 PM, check out is at 12:00 noon. Housekeeping is scheduled with this check out time in mind. During some parts of the year, it may be possible to check in earlier if there are no guests right before your stay. Late check-out depends upon my housekeeper’s schedule and the house calendar and if other guests are checking in on the same day, etc.


How close to downtown Palm Springs is Via Miraleste?

Via Miraleste is about 1 mile to downtown Palm Springs.

We have more than 8 guests. What is your policy for extra guests?

Guests over 8 are charged $100 per guest per night. We do have air mattresses and linens to accommodate 2 additional guests.

What do you charge for pool heat?

Pool heat is included in the rate for Via Miraleste! Nobody wants to jump into a cold pool. We make sure that the pool is heated to 84 degrees (spa is set to 104 degrees) before our guests arrive so that they can get through the front door, into the pool, and into their vacation!
