Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Our Canadian family moved to the desert in 2011 for a 3 year work assignment in the area. We fell in love with this vacation hot spot (355 days of sun per year!) and decided to buy a property our last year here, with a plan to use it as a vacation home thereafter. Unfortunately our busy lives up in Calgary will only allow us to take advantage of our new desert vacation home 4 – 6 weeks a year. The rest of the time we plan to make our family vacation home available for others to enjoy. Before experiencing the desert, we never imagined spending too much time here, let alone our hard earned vacation time. We were pleasantly surprised to find out how much this area has to offer for not only families on vacation, but also couples and friends' getaways. Palm Desert/Palm Springs is truly a gem of a place to visit and we look forward to returning because it's always an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Did we mention 355 days of sun/year?!!
Why the Owner Chose Palm Desert, CA, USA:
We spent many months looking for our perfect vacation home. This home speaks 'vacation' the minute you enter it!! We wanted nothing less knowing we'd be returning to the long Calgary winters that wear us down and seem to have no end in sight. Our home is one of the largest and most private lots on this street of mainly local residents. It is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac which has gorgeous views of the mountains. The layout of this home is so very unique and special, with 2 separate King Master Suites at opposite ends of the home. There is also the spare room next to the one King Suite which is ideal for families with younger children. A den works as a 4th bedroom with a Queen pullout sofa bed. This layout is perfect for separate couples, families or grandparents wanting to spend time with their own children's family. It allows each to use their own 'wing' of the house. This is not the only advantage of the home - we can't forget about our amazing backyard oasis/patio area that wraps around the entire back of the house! Large sliding doors back onto the yard from almost every room! Lastly, we picked this property for its location and proximity to everything! Having spent 3 years in the area, Palm Desert is by far the best place to hang your hat! So....If you are looking for a true 'vacation home' to bask in the sun and frolic in the pool, this is the property for you - with over a half acre of property this home is a wonderful winter escape!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
1 - the way this home exudes 'vacation' in every way, 2 - the huge backyard with amazing waterfall pool, 3 - the brightness of the sun coming into every room of the house, 4 - the visibility of the pool from almost every room of the house (also helpful to keep an eye on children), 5 - the mid century modern design and luxury furnishings of this home, 6 - the way we have set this vacation home up for you to enjoy it from the minute you arrive (we have lived in this home for a full year, so you will find all the comforts and extras you need; from plenty of kitchen accessories, to games, puzzles, books, pool toys, and electronics for everyone to enjoy!)
