About Suzanne Teixeira

I have travelled extensively and live on the coast where I love to kayak amongst the whales but always love the contrasting beauty of the desert with its breathtaking sunsets, warm balmy weather, picturesque scenery and relaxing environment. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and have lived all over including NYC but find there is no place like Palm Springs/Palm Desert Area.

Suzanne Teixeira purchased this condo in 2016

Why Suzanne Teixeira chose Deserts

The location is prime! The condo is updated and furnished in the gated community of Shadow Mt Resort. Home away from home. Just come and relax, swim, sit on the patio enjoying the creek and read or check out the numerous galleries on El Paseo which is a 1.5 block walk from the condo. Much to offer with 3 saltwater pools, 4 Jacuzzis, onsite golf, tennis (ask owner about if you're a ranked player), 2 onsite restaurants and beautifully maintained grounds.The resort is walking distance to great restaurants, upscale shopping, art galleries I hope your stay is as relaxing and enjoyable as mine with each visit and that you go home rejuvenated! Long term rental available as well!

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this resort after staying in so many other places in the desert including palm springs for years. To me, this property has it all, location, ambiance, amenities, updated, furnished, close proximity to great shopping, galleries, restaurants, living desert.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love walking in the neighborhood and to El Paseo for breakfast, Happy Hour and coffee! Nice view of creek and great location within the complex.

Sunny south facing studio

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our one week stay here during the Desert Trip 2016 concert in October. It has a sunny south facing patio that overlooks a small water feature that flows during the day - peaceful and relaxing. Just steps to a nearby hot tub and close to a quiet pool reserved for condo owners and guests. Comfortable king size bed and well appointed kitchen complete with condiments. Suzanne was very helpful and quick to respond during the booking process and we appreciated that she maintained a competitive rate during the concert, unlike many other condo owners. We do like to barbeque during our desert vacations and we were a little disappointed that there is no BBQ available at the condo and no opportunity to use the Shadow Mountain Resort BBQ located at the resort pool. But it's still a great studio condo for a couple.

We spent 2 weeks here and really enjoyed our corner unit. We are on the main level, with a private patio, kitchen, dining room, living room and a large bedroom. With 3 sliding doors, the fresh air was great to breathe everyday. The pool is nearby and was a daily break. We took walks every day through the residential beautiful homes and also just blocks away from shopping and restaurants. We hope to come back every year.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

The studio suite was exactly as described and perfect for short term stays as it quite small. The one complaint we had was that bathroom shower head was inadequate and should be replaced. The Shadow Mountain Resort however was another story. The pool we used had leaves and dirt in and around the pool everyday, we saw the pool being cleaned but never the pool deck, which was covered in dead leaves. We checked the 2 other pools available to us and they were all in the same condition.

The garbage containers for recycling and garbage were full and overflowing and we had to place our garbage etc on the ground. We were at the resort for 9 days and they were full the entire time. We have stayed at 4 other vacation rentals in Palm Desert over the last few years and their ground and pools were immaculate compared to Shadow Mountain. Despite the fabulous location we would not return to Shadow Mountain for these reasons.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry the resort didn't meet your expectations. I gave this guest a considerable discount on her stay but still guest wasn't satisfied. You can't please everyone. Windy days makes it impossible for landscapers to keep up with leaves around the pools and when it is busy there, yes the trash bins to get full but that is so petty in comparison to thelocation, lovely grounds and unit, that are meticulously maintained. I am thankful for all my grateful repeat guests that look forward to retruning each year!

Small studio well situated

  • 4 of 5

This property is located in the well-maintained Shadow Mountain Resort. The location is perfect for walking to El Paseo for shopping or fine/casual dining. The studio apartment is easily accessible with a first floor entrance, and is reasonably well-equipped. There is covered parking just steps from the front door. Small pools are quite near. Tennis lessons are available. A very convenient place to stay in Palm Desert.
