About Owner/Property Manager
This is our second private residence in the desert. Before, we had a 3 bedroom condo in Desert Falls Country Club. With the arrival of our grandchildren, we wanted a larger family home where we could all be together. 15 years and 4 granddaughters later, we remain delighted with our decision.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this House in 2002
Why Owner/Property Manager chose La Terraza
This location is amazing! After maintaining a vacation home in this area for 10 years, we were clear where we wanted to be. This was a new development at the time we were looking and it was perfect in every way. Great location, value and neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
We are located in the middle of the desert communities with every service and convenience close by. We can walk to Starbucks, Albertsons, the cleaners and the nail shop. Nothing is better than walking to Golden Spoon at night and getting a yogurt. We believe the walk cancels the calories. Within 3 miles we have shopping, theaters and great restaurants

We had a wonderful experience! Exceeded expectations!
This home is beautiful inside and out and the location is perfect! It is well maintained and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the availability of spices and other basics for cooking and paper and laundry supplies with the notion of replace it if it runs low or out. How civilized versus cold empty cupboards! We received a thoughtful welcome note and package and were able to relax with a drink before running out for groceries. We were a family with very young grand children and my 84 year old mother and the home met all their needs. Terry was easy to work with and even took the time to provide us with information on renting a crib and where we might obtain other toddler supplies so we didn't have to travel with them. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely like to return!
Great, relaxing getaway
Our family spent a fantastic week at Terry & Fabienne's place in Rancho Mirage over Easter. This house is spacious, very clean and professionally decorated and looks every bit as good as the pictures. The kitchen was very well equipped and included every glass, cookware or utensil you could possibly think of. The owners left us a very nice gift basket which was a nice, personal touch. The location is central to golf, shopping and great restaurants. The backyard is ideal for entertaining and the kids loved the pool. The owners were extremely friendly, personable and helpful. We definitely do plan on returning!

Everyone in our extended family loved this beautiful home in Rancho Mirage!
Aside from a one day trip to Disneyland, we all just wanted to stay "home" and relax in the serene outdoor setting. The neighborhood is quiet and an easy walk to Starbucks and grocery stores. This home had everything needed to prepare dinner every night with a nice dining room for family meals. The owners were very welcoming and easy to work with. The pool and spa were enjoyed by all. Our toddler granddaughter said, "We should buy this place!" We look forward to returning sometime in the future.
It was our pleasure to have you and your family in our home over the Christmas holidays - please come back!
