Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I bought Mar'TEE'ni Dreams for our future retirement and have spent many hours renovating it and adding the touches that we would want to see in a vacation home. We love the desert because it is filled with friendly people, has sunshine year round and is a wonderful escape from Big City life. We love it so much here that we purchased a second home, which we are currently renovating.

Why the Owner Chose Magnesia Falls Cove, Rancho Mirage, CA, USA:
Everyone loves our pool and lush desert landscaping. The views from the garden spa are terrific -- especially at Happy Hour -- and we love watching the wild birds who frequent our newly landscaped desert garden and bird baths. The location cannot be beat -- we are 3-5 minutes from all conveniences, including restaurants, groceries, pharmacies, Target.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everyone remarks on our beautiful ocotillos, which are a type of tall desert cactus which bloom in orange red flowers during the year. Our gardeners say they are the largest they have ever seen, at least 50 years old! Oh, and our location is awesome!
