About Steve Wheeler

We are an active family that enjoys hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, skiing, and golfing together. We have always been interested in owning property in the desert on a golf course. We love sitting on our patio each morning with a cup of coffee watching the grounds keepers change the pin on the sixth hole and readying the course for the day. In the evening we are often on the patio enjoying the gorgeous desert sunsets.

We both grew up in Orange County, but moved to Riverside County over 20 years ago.

Steve Wheeler purchased this condo in 2012

Why Steve Wheeler chose Rancho Mirage

We had stayed at the resort previously when it was a Marriott property and hoped someday we could own a condo within the complex.

What makes this condo unique

The expansive views from the patio of the San Jacinto Mountains and the entire span of the sixth hole make this a favorite place to sit, read, and enjoy the view. Within easy walking distance to The River for dinner or College of the Desert for the Saturday morning flea market.

Clean, comfortable and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property and the location close to the club house and with a sunny south facing patio is the best we have found - and we have stayed at other properties in this resort community. The updated kitchen is well equipped and the outdoor furniture updated and very comfy. Beds and linens top quality and the bikes in the garage were a wonderful surprise. The owners were very thoughtful with written instructions on how to use the TV and info on the area and were quick to offer any help. Beautiful tile floors and new washer and dryer make this a property that was perfect for our month long visit to the desert. We would already recommended this property to others as the Rancho Las Palmas community is located so that you can walk to shopping, a movie theatre and lots of restaurants.

Very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and updated condo. Very comfy bed in the Master Bedroom. ( I didn't try the other beds). I love, love the area and the view from the patio is to die for. Such a pleasure to wake up in the morning on the golf course and the view of the mountains. Condo has everything you could possible want for your stay in Rancho Mirage.

Rented in RLP for 11 years and this is the BEST unit we've ever rented, by far!

  • 5 of 5

Great views, fabulous interior, most comfortable beds and bedding (the comfort of a 5 star hotel), fabulous TV and sound system. Everything you could want, and more. The appliances are all new and the kitchen is well stocked with every item a cook could want. The unit is spotlessly clean. Walking distance to many great activities. We rented for several months and loved it every day. The owners are great and very responsive.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Our idea of rental has always been to welcome guests to our home, not a rental.
