anyone know of kosher restaurants in palm springs?
On Tuesday evenings, during the winter months (Sukkos through Shavuos), there’s a weekly BBQ at Chabad of Rancho Mirage.

He sold it a while back. There are no Kosher homes near Chabad at this time.
Just called him to confirm. He sold it last October, so there are no kosher homes in the area.(Google villas in Palm Springs/ Rancho Mirage though)

Search VRBO or Airbnb by address?

How is the Chabad there now that Rabbi Denebeim isn't running it?

Don't think there's any since Shusterman sold, but try reaching out to Chabad and they may be able to help you -(Rabbi there is super nice/helpful)

I don't really understand how a kosher villa works anyway. You trust everyone that ever stayed there to hold to your standards?

Individual question but it had 2 sep sinks, ovens-(self clean) and most importantly micros -(easy to kasher) stocked with some basic kosher products. Had perculator for shbs, shbs lamps and some other features which the kosher traveler may appreciate. And of course a hefty kosher price  ;)

Each owner runs it differently. I've rented several and some make you fill out a detailed questionnaire...I know 1 owner who burns out the ovens after each stay but most don't. (I personally don't use the kitchens unless I know the owner)

Most places have self cleaning ovens and micros, just ask. Why pay a premium for that?

Define close.

Separate sinks, dishes and utensils for milchig & fleishig, everything clearly labeled. A frum yid has a chezkas kashrus to follow instructions.
