Separate sinks, dishes and utensils for milchig & fleishig, everything clearly labeled. A frum yid has a chezkas kashrus to follow instructions.
As well as Shabbos locks (no issues with electronic doors of physical keys)

Search VRBO or Airbnb by address?

How is the Chabad there now that Rabbi Denebeim isn't running it?
Rabbi Dennanbaum's son took over and he is really working it up , he bought a new beautiful spacious building for the shul and building a new mikva separate for women and men , and he is doing occasionally prepaid shabbos meals and plans to open a restaurant soon

It's much nicer indeed, but the lack of Kosher restaurants is a pain.

Near Chabad of Rancho Mirage there are a few homes (non-kosher) available for rent on VRBO/AirBnB, as well as a few hotels within walking distance - between 1 and 2 miles (Marriott Shadow Ridge, the Westin, and Agua Caliente Resort (Westin villas are a little closer))

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

He only rented to people who kept kosher, and when requested, would kasher the kitchen before renting it out. His house wasn't too much more than any others in the neighborhood.

Is Palm Springs still shutdown?
Does it make sense to plan a trip for early March there?

There's tons of outdoor activities to do in the winter that are not shut down like hikes, biking trials, taking the tram up to the snow, etc.
