About Donna

I am a real estate agent with a passion for lovely homes! Making this home into a luxurious, peaceful and inviting vacation home was one of my greatest pleasures. My goal was to create a desert oasis to help anyone relax and unwind.

Originally from the east coast, one year I took a vacation to Southern California. It was love at first sight when I saw all the natural beauty, magnificent coast line and breathtaking topography. It motivated me to take the next step and move here permanently. Since 1994, I have never looked back. Then on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, I fell in love all over again. I searched for the perfect home and luckily found it in the Mountain Gate neighborhood.

I work at Keller Williams Real Estate firm so feel free to contact my manager at 310 745-0636 with any questions or concerns you may have before booking this lovely property.

Donna purchased this house in 2004

Why Donna chose Palm Springs

I had looked at more than 500 homes in the Palm Springs area over a two-year period before purchasing this home in the gated community of Mountain Gate. My goal was to buy a brand-new house with spectacular mountain views and to be a couple of minutes from town.

Mountain Gate is a gated community of newer homes with three pools and two tennis courts near the Aerial Tram Way. The builder showed me eight floor plans and we drove around looking at all the empty lots. I chose the lot with the best mountain views. I also picked the largest home with the best floor plan, which is called "Bella." When I found this newly built home, I knew I’d found the perfect home for entertaining family and friends.

What makes this house unique

What makes this house unique:

This is a large home that can accommodate 8 to 10 people comfortably.

This sunny and bright house delivers spectacular mountain views from every room.

A pool and hot tub are one minute from property. There are also two tennis courts. And more than 130 golf course in the area.

This one level home makes it easy to navigate for children and the elderly.

The attached one-bedroom, one-bath casita (guesthouse) with private entrance is convenient if one of your guests wants privacy and their own space.

Large open great room. Chef's gourmet kitchen is great to cook in and makes it fun to entertain. Gigantic master suite is spacious with great mountain views to gaze up at while you're in bed enjoying your morning coffee. Lots of love, careful thought and energy has been put into this home.

I hope you will love my home as much as I do.

The home is impeccably maintained with the help of a professional property manager and cleaning staff. Rest assured when you arrive that every corner will be neat and clean and in turnkey condition.

Your happiness, providing great customer service, and exceeding your expectations are my top priorities. I built my business on repeat visitors and referrals, so I hope to knock your socks off with our home, so you'll visit again and again each year and share your magical Palm Springs experience with your friends.

A Great Vacation Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed and equipped property located at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains. The neighborhood is quiet and very walkable/bikeable, with nice tennis courts and multiple pools. We have stayed a month, and it felt very much like home. The owners obviously have great pride of ownership and maintain it and use it as a second home, not just a rental. It is conviently located a few minutes drive from downtown Palm Springs, with surprisingly easy access to other area cities.

Many Pluses to this Property

  • 4 of 5

For our stay for the month of February we were impressed by the spaciousness of each room, the well stocked kitchen, good appliances and lots of good towels and bedding. Good use was made of the bikes available, riding around the Mountain Gate development for our exercise. We were disappointed the nearest pool was not heated.

This was our sixth home rented annually in greater Palm Springs and not our first choice on location, more traveling to theaters, favorite restaurants, friends in Indio, but great access to our many favored Palm Springs restaurants and activities. Having two ensuites for two couples was appreciated. With this location for us and some updating, particularly flooring, required plus larger cleaning and hidden VRBO booking fee, we felt the accommodation was somewhat over priced, unless you need all four bedrooms.

Great Place to Escape the Winter Blues!

We visited here last winter and were thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. It was located near great amenities, golf courses and dining. The house itself is clean, well maintained and had all of the amenities we needed. Would highly recommend.

Great Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My winter escape from Chicago. Stayed at this house for 4 months. This is one of the best houses I rented. I have been at Ojai, Laguna beach and Redondo beach for the past three years for winter. House is in a gated community close to town and close to windmills. House is open and spacious. Kitchen is well equipped. Loved having the Casita. Great place to entertain my golf buddies from Chicago. Nice backyard where we spent drinking morning coffee and evening tea. Few steps from the house is Jacuzzi. I used to enjoy the Jacuzzi looking at the surrounding mountains. Only problem was the reception on my cell phone was poor and intermittent. However they have free local and long distance unlimited calling with their landline. You have to rent a PO box. Home owner and Manager were very responsive and quickly resolved issues promptly. All in all, it was a great place to stay and I may return again in the future.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property for a long weekend of golf in the Palm Springs area. The house was very reasonably priced and absolutely immaculate. All the instructions we received were very clear and easily followed. I will definitely be checking the availability of this house on all my future visits to the area. Thank you Donna and Elizabeth for a wonderful stay.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great place for our family of 8 adults to get together. The living area and kitchen are spacious. We enjoyed cooking together and having good conversations at the dining table. The 3 bathrooms made it easy to get ready for going out or clean up after our wonderful hike on the San Jacinto mountain. The home was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.

The location is wonderful, close to the Palm Springs Areal Tram and downtown Palm Springs with many great restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is very quite and peaceful. We would recommend this house to anyone that needs a larger place to gather.
