'we felt like we were stepping into a very special place. The furnishings, artwork, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all well appointed and provided us with a romantic and relaxing experience. The piece de resistance was when we walked out the back doors to our own private oasis. A magical place where we relaxed by the pool and spa while taking in the stunning view of the mountains.'
The property encompasses 2/3 of an acre, the back 1/3 of which is an orchard. Pick your own oranges, mandarins, grapefruits, lemons and limes.

Why the Owner Chose Old Las Palmas: We fell in love with this home in 2001, while vacationing in Palm Springs. We bought it and moved from Portland, Oregon. We made it our family home. Our daughter was married in the orchard and our grandaughter has learned to swim in the pool. In 2009 we left Palm Springs to fulfil family commitments, but couldn't let go of this home. You will understand when you spend time at 776 N Mission Road! We are entrusting this special place for you to make lasting memories here also. Mary and Al
