                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We travel extensively all over North America in all of the great cities and National Parks. We are both from Southern CA and love our oasis in Palm Desert. We have 2 kids that we home school. We love to travel and have fun!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Darci grew up in Palm Desert. This gated community used to be a date orchard and I would walk through it to get to school. When I saw that they were building gorgeous, compound style, estate homes I couldn't wait to see them. It was also very important for me to have a view of Mt. San Jacinto. The community is full of amazing personal shang-ri-las and I feel so blessed to be an owner here. We travel a lot so we wanted to be able to have access to the warm desert weather when we were vacationing at home!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home is very unique. It is a collection of all of our travels. We fall in love all over again every time we stay there, with the house and each other! There is special night lighting in all of the rooms as well as outside. We LOVE to play beach ball in the pool, relax out doors and get some sun, float in the hot tub at night and see shooting stars, go hiking in the canyons near by and dance at the casinos!
