About Mai Do-Galvan

We are a couple in our 40s and live in San Diego. My husband grew up in Yuma.

We are professional property owners and have enjoyed renting to guests from all over the US, as well as foreign countries including France, Israel, Canada and the UK.

We had another home listed - it was a luxury rental in Canyon Lake, CA (Listing 186553) with over 40 five star reviews on VRBO. That property was sold in 2014.

We have been renting our other Hacienda home in Yuma since 2009 and due to high demand, we decided to buy another vacation rental property.

Mai Do-Galvan purchased this house in 2005

Why Mai Do-Galvan chose Yuma

It was all by chance... We were actually looking and inquiring about an empty lot in front of this property for investment and had no intentions of buying another house. The owner persuaded us to take a look at his home for sale and we reluctantly agreed. The moment we stepped in, we fell in love with it, we knew we could not pass this up. We signed the papers within a couple of weeks and bought the house with all its content including a red convertible sports car. It was unreal.

We have made it ours since, and our family, friends and neighbors have enjoyed numerous stays on this property over the years for boating/river trips nearby The Hidden Shores Resort (25 minutes). Times have changed, we had our first child a few years ago, and friends/family got busy so we dont make it out here as much and now decided to open it up to the public to enjoy. We know you will find this retreat as special as we do!

Peaceful oasis in the desert

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home and there will hopefully be a third! It is a quiet, relaxing visit to the desert town. It really feels like an oasis in the desert. The house is lovely with the back courtyard and fountain a great place to relax in the mornings and evenings. The property and home is well maintained and clean. The owners respond quickly to any questions or concerns. We definitely recommend this home for your vacation/retreat!

If we go back to Yuma, we will be staying again.

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and beautiful. Plenty of seating inside and outside. The kids living room was great for kids to stay. There was alot of nick nacks some of which needed to be picked up so the kids left them alone but added a home feeling to the house. The sheets made me come home and search for sheets that soft. The pool was good temperature and clean.

It was hard to find and we got lost, definitely as for directions from the homeowners and dont trust your maps.
