About Karen Wright

We purchased our home in Indian Wells in preparation for future retirement. We looked at over 40 homes and knew that this was 'the one' as soon as our realtor opened the front door. We live just east of Vancouver, B.C. and are looking forward to escaping the rain. After looking at all areas, Casa Dorado at Indian Wells can't be beat in terms of location, beauty and a quiet peaceful atmosphere.

My husband and I have very reluctantly returned from the most wonderful 5 weeks at Karen and John’s house in Indian Wells. I say reluctantly because the weather was ideal, the house was just what we wanted for a vacation get away and Indian Wells is so convenient to everything. It was an ideal winter trip. I did not want to go home! There is a delightful view of the palm trees and mountains which we so enjoyed as we swam in the pool and took our morning coffee on the patio. Casa Dorado is a beautiful complex and extremely quiet. The house had everything you would ever need. The home is just as pictured with large bedrooms, comfortable open living space and a very well stocked kitchen. The house has just about any supply you would ever need. We felt immediately at home as soon as we arrived. This was our first trip to the Palm Springs area and we could not have asked for any accommodations that were more welcoming.

We loved the home. The location is absolutely the best in the valley. The kitchen had everything anyone would need to prepare a gourmet meal. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable . Casa Dorado is very nice and quiet. The house was very clean and everything was in good working order. We definitely hope that Karen and John will want us back next season. I don't believe you can find a nicer place than is home.

We spent two lovely weeks at this home in Casa Dorado. Mid-May was perfect weather. The situation of the home within the Casa Dorado community was very good. The patio looked out to the perfectly manicured HUGE green space which also included the largest pool in the community (there are apparently 6 pools). The home contained everything you could possibly need to make yourself comfortable. The master bedroom bed was SO comfortable. Everything in the house worked well. The internet connection was fast and reliable. The home itself is spacious and when our friends came to visit for one week, the 4 of us lived very happily. The bird life around the house was abundant ... sounded like "Wild Kingdom" sitting out on the patio sometimes ... made me smile. We saw 3 resident bunnies hopping about on the common green space most days. Also saw a roadrunner (but not for long! beep beep!). The home is close enough to walk to The Village Plaza which has a Ralph's grocery store among many other small stores (a very reasonable nail salon too ... $23 for a pedi!!! COME on!!! ...). In fact, if you felt ambitious you could walk to "The Nest" (although, that might be pushing it) ... now THAT is a scene you must see ... a ton of fun ... we need a bar/dance club like that in Vancouver!!!

We had a great time and Karen and John's home was a BIG part of it.

We would return in a heartbeat ... and

We absolutely loved this home. Location is great. We had adult children visiting in rotations and one with two small children. The pool and putting green were awesome and within steps of our patio. Our 2 year old grandson loved picking fresh fruit off the trees and making fresh juice every 6:00 am😒. They come off trees and not the grocery stores....weird.????? Place was spacious and exceptionally clean..neighbours were awesome, and area is very dog friendly..this home is so beautiful and comfortable. We are definitely coming back!!! Home owners were great to work with!

We had a wonderful time in John and Karen's Indian Wells home. it was our first time staying in this area of the Coachella Valley and we liked the location very much. It was conveniently located to all of the shopping and restaurants located along Hwy 11, and a short trip to plenty of great golf courses. The home itself was well supplied and very comfortable. John and Karen were very nice, responsive and eager for us to enjoy our stay. We are looking forward to returning in 2016!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful home was perfect from our first discussion with Karen and John to our last day ! When you walk into this wonderful mid-century home you are transported back in time. It is a very well equipped home, with 3 comfortable bedrooms, lots of living space and loads of extras. The location is perfect for those afternoons by the pool, followed by a bit of putting practice. The complex is clean and well kept with very friendly staff. The location is close to shopping, restaurants and great happy hour spots. Pleasant experience from start to finish, looking forward to returning to this mid-century treasure.
