                          Location, location, location. We are two blocks from the Eisenhower Hospital. Nearby activities are limited by only your imagination. We are minutes from literally dozens of golf courses, the River Mall, or the high end shopping on El Paseo Drive. Our quiet gated community is a wonderful venue for morning/evening walks or riding your bike. There are nearby theatres and casinos. Check out the live entertainment, as Las Vegas comes to the desert. Also, don’t miss the Palm Springs Tramway which takes you 8,516ft above the desert floor to some of the best views and hiking around. From the tram take a one-mile nature walk, or stay for lunch at the upper tram station lodge and enjoy some unforgettable views right off of the tram. Feel like a hike? Take the five-mile hike to the peak of San Jacinto or choose from the 50 miles of nearby trails. Finally, Disneyland, Universal Studio and Knott’s Berry Farm are a 1.5 hour, 105 mile drive. Join us, and enjoy this amazing desert setting.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: Peg and I live in the Seattle area. We sold our VRBO rental in San Miguel Allende, to purchase this home in 2011. We wanted a home that was easier for us to manage and visit, we wanted a home with a pool. We found it all in Palm Desert.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          We love the desert. We scoured the area for the perfect home. We choose this home because we both instantly fell in love with the place as we walked through the door. For me it was the tile and the open airy feeling. For my wife it was the Kitchen and Family room that allowed for great entertaining, that allows everyone to be part of the gathering. We chose a gated community to provide security for us as absentee owners, as well as the benefit of security for our guests.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This home is located in the Center of the desert cities. We love being able to go anywhere in the area quickly. The pool and yard are wonderful for relaxing day or night. We enjoy the spaciousness of the home, the beauty of the area, and the relaxation we feel whenever we are there. Most of all, we love waking up to blue skies virtually every morning.
