About Melanie and Tristram McCall

After living in WA state for many years, we retired about 14 years ago and moved to beautiful Bend Oregon. We consider Bend our primary home, but since visiting the Coachella valley, we find we want to spend more time here each year. My working years were spent as a high school counselor and my husband was a nuclear safety engineer at Hanford, WA.

Retirement has been great. We enjoy our grandchildren , travel, books golf, gardening, genealogy, quilting and our 6 year old havanese pup. Life is good.

We are happy to share our cottage and the good life in the desert with others.

Come visit and see for yourself.

Why Melanie and Tristram McCall chose Indio

We have been coming to the Coachella Valley for several years staying in a variety of golf communities. We fell in love with the active outdoor lifestyle, weather, activities and the many other local events. When here we enjoy golf, the fabulous shopping, theatre, the many restaurants, the Living Desert, polo, etc

We previously owned a condo at a golf country club but wanted more activity options, so we moved recently to Sun City Shadow HIlls. While we enjoy playing golf we wanted to participate in other activites as well, and SCSH has many. We now participate in several of the more than 60 additional activities at SCSH.

What makes this house unique

Entertaining and outdoor living at our home is awesome and easy. The gated, enclosed front court yard is private, quiet and south facing as well as great for morning coffee. Our enclosed north facing back yard is terrific for entertaining. A covered patio runs the entire length of the house so has plenty of room for a comfortable seating area and dining at a large table with seating for 8-10. A separate area for sunning, commercial grade misters, a fire pit and beautiful trees and vegetation make this setting awesome in any weather you will encounter in Indio.
