About Cindi Scharr

I live in Orange County California and I am the parent of two, beautiful daughters. I grew up in Southern California. I enjoy being close to the desert, beaches and mountains. We like going to Disneyland, Angel games and of course, playing golf!

Cindi Scharr purchased this estate in 2006

Why Cindi Scharr chose La Quinta

I've been vacationing in the Palm Springs area since I was a child. My parents also loved the area so we spent many family vacations in this beautiful desert. When I got married, I shared my love of the desert with my husband at the time and he quickly became a fan and an avid golfer. For many years we spent as much vacation time as we could in the Palm Desert and Indian Wells area, but once we discovered PGA West, there was nothing else like it! We knew that one day, we would like to spend our retirement years in this wonderful community. Until then....relax and enjoy!

What makes this estate unique

Our vacation home was a brand new, model home when we purchased it. We have been the only owners. We love being right on the 5th green of the Greg Norman course! This golf course has a beautiful desert style, combined with the incredible mountain views, there's nothing else like it! I love to spend mornings on the back patio, enjoying the quiet beauty of the desert. The golf courses are beautiful and very well kept.

We also enjoy eating and shopping at the many wonderful restaurants and stores nearby.

When our girls were younger we took several trips to the Ariel Tramway, especially in the summer when the weather is about 30 degrees cooler at the top. The hiking trails are great and the view is breathtaking!

We also enjoy shows at the local theater and we like visiting the Living Desert. That is something the kids have never outgrown! (either have we)

During the summer months, Soak City is a lot of fun for kids and teens.

We also enjoy just sitting by the pool and soaking up the sun, enjoying dinner on the patio or riding bicycles around the neighborhood. The great thing about this area is that you can do as much or as little as you'd like! That's why we think PGA West is a perfect getaway!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This desert home is truly fabulous, with modern amenities and features, super clean and organized, comfortable and quite, a golfers paradise. Lots to do in the area. Hiking, Dining, Shopping, etc. Our family had a wonderful time and will definitely be back..

Nice house...but pool heater does does not work

  • 2 of 5

Very nice house. Spacious and clean. We stayed here over the Holidays for just a few days, and the accommodations worked out well. However....after paying an additional $120 in order to have a heated pool during the trip, we expected it to be heated. No luck. The pool heater was not working. And, boy did we try. It never got above 70 degrees. And Bob, the manager for this house, was helpful in advising and trying to get it fixed, but after 3 days and 22 text exchanges and multiple phone calls between us, no luck. What a bummer considering it was the reason why we rented this house! But, what was most perplexing was that we were only refunded $60 of the extra $120 heating fee we were charged. Not a lot of money, but a questionable decision by Bob considering all of the back and forth we had over this. We did find a heated public pool 2 miles away which we used instead (which was also Bobs advice when the pool failed to heat).

Again....nice house but I would advise looking at other options in the area during winter and spring months when you need a heated pool that actually heats!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home before and enjoyed it just as much this time. The views are fantastic. The kitchen is so complete that we ate at home every night. The five years between visits are starting to show on the furniture, but it is still a wonderful place to be. I hope after the home sells it will still be available.
