About the property

Save Your Vacation Money For The Many Attractions Near This Oasis Of Peace.

YOU will be the most relaxed guest on Desert Island, knowing that you have extra hundreds to spend on yourself, not on the rental fee.

You can savor the refreshing from the Tuscany style interior and the garden like setting from the patio rather than the stiff hotel-like setting of other units in the complex.

This unit is blessed with all the amenities of home without the headaches of home. Many of the costs others pass on to you are absorbed by the friendly couple who chose the unit as their own personal get-away for a good portion of the year. They are just thrilled to share their gift of Desert Island with others who don't necessarily want a sterile and ultra modern decor style that doesn't fit their vacation needs and wants.

About Gary Duerner

My wife and I fell in love with Desert Island when we visited a minister friend and experienced the peace, tranquility, privacy and prestige of the Island.

We spend half of our time in "our oasis in the desert" and spend the other half in Northern California in the Rocklin area.

We especially like to share our Shangri-La with ministers and other Christians where they can pull away from the busy-ness of ministry and relax, rejuvenate, refresh and restore and then go reinvigorated to pursue their mission.

While we don't rent our unit for less than 30 days, we keep our rates low enough that someone can pay our rates and not stay the full rental period and still save money compared to other properties.

Call us and we will make your stay the most enjoyable experience you will ever have in the Desert.

God Bless,

Gary and Judy

Best home away from home we have ever found!

  • 5 of 5

Property and condo are beautiful, just as the pictures show. Even better seeing it in person. Views of the mountains from the living room are spectacular! Gary and Judy are a delight to work with. The Kitchen has everything you could need for cooking. Beds are very comfortable. We felt right at home. So peaceful. Hate to leave, but hope to be back next year. For what you get the price is really good for Rancho Mirage. The description that Gary and Judy give is everything and more. We have been coming to the Desert for 15 years now, from Minnesota and this is by far the best place we have ever rented.

Sincerely, Joan and Rich

Relaxing vacation atmosphere where peace and tranquility reign.

Desert Island is the nearest to perfection and safety this side of heaven.

(24 hour guarded gate surrounded by a 25 acre lake. One guarded entrance to Paradise)

On the corner of Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra and just across the street from Sunnylands. (The Annenberg Estate referred to as the Western Camp David Retreat for Presidents and Dignitaries).

Rancho Mirage is the premier location in the center of the Coachella Valley.

Come and enjoy the finest setting in the desert.
