About Shawn and Shakeh Simmons
A little bit about us…. We have been married since 2007 and live in the Encino community of Los Angeles with our elementary school aged daughter and our dog, Buster. Shawn was born and raised in Maryland and lived in England, Washington DC, and Tucson before settling down in California. Shakeh is Armenian and grew up in Iran before moving to the U.S. in her late teens with her family. We met in 2005 and instantly discovered our mutual love of travel, cultures, languages, food, and learning about people from different corners of the world. Of all the beautiful places in the world ranging from mountain to oceans, small towns to the most luxurious European cities, the desert remains our favorite – the dry air, deep blue skies, starry nights, beautiful yet rugged vegetation, the wildlife – all of it. When we drive from Los Angeles to the desert, we always feel a calming sensation … a reconnection of sorts and a respite from the petty dramas and priorities of modern life. In addition to raising our daughter and having careers in finance and philanthropy, we’re working on our dream project – to develop a boutique resort that will more fully express our love of the California desert. We enjoy spending our free time at the Bottlebrush, too. Our daughter would hang out in the pool the entire day if she could. She’s becoming a great artist and one day wants to showcase her work to guests. Our dog Buster is a happy little cockapoo. We support local businesses and charitable organizations and, over the years, will dedicate our time and resources to give back to this beautiful little corner of the planet, whose people have been so kind and welcoming to us. With gratitude and appreciation, Shawn and Shakeh
Why Shawn and Shakeh Simmons chose Desert Club Manor
The moment we first stepped inside, we fell in love with The Bottlebrush. The Southwestern styling, the indoor/outdoor living spaces, the high ceilings and bright airiness – it felt like the La Quinta vacations we’ve come to love over the years. Each item in the house was hand-selected to express our best interpretation of the ideal La Quinta getaway. (If there are items you're particularly interested in for your own home, let us know and we can help you find them.) We hope you enjoy the house – and the wonderful people, places and experiences La Quinta has to offer – as much as we do.
