About Dan Lemieux

Both Dan & John are Los Angeles natives. Growing up in the small beach community of Manhattan and Redondo Beach Ca.

Dan is in real estate development and property management, while John works in the film industry. Going to the desert with our family and friends for a quick weekend get away has been therapeutic in so many ways. Book a weekend, a week, or even a month and see how this home and all its amenities can change your life :)

Dan Lemieux purchased this house in 2009

Why Dan Lemieux chose Magnesia Falls Cove

Our love of golf and the peaceful desert ambience drew us to this neighborhood. The property if far enough from the 111 to avoid traffic noise but close enough to walk to The River for dinner, drinks, or a movie. When we are not renting we are here golfing. hiking, and enjoying all the desert has to offer.

We loved every minute of our stay at the Biskra Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Huge thanks to Dan, John & Megan for making such a beautiful home as the Biskra Oasis available to us. We loved our time here - this gracious desert home is beautiful and welcoming. Pool and spa time was wonderful. And the special amenities of horseshoes and a putting green gave us lots of fun things to do together right on the property. Really, there just isn't another place as beautiful as this that offers so much! To top things off, Biskra Oasis is situated at the gorgeous top of the Magnesia Falls Cove near Porcupine Creek, surrounded by dramatic mountains and overlooking the entire Coachella Valley - you wil want to be outside on the elegant outdoor seating area, relaxing every afternoon with time to enjoy the amazing magic hour before sunset as different shades and hues are painted on the mountains. For things to do in Palm Springs or down in La Quinta, we found Rancho Mirage to be a convenient twenty-minute drive in either direction. Grocery stores are literally five minutes away - as is the elegant El Paseo shopping district. Biskra Oasis delivered for our week in the desert!

Fantastic Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Palm Springs area with the same group of girlfriends for 11 years. This year we stayed here rather than renting the home we previously stayed at our first 10 years. The home is immaculate, well laid out for our group of 5 and the location is fantastic. The pool/golf/bocce areas plus outside seating areas including the fire pit were very much enjoyed. The owners were very responsive when we called to ask a couple questions re: kitchen utensils/appliances. The ease of getting keys and returning them was a breeze. We will definitely be back! Highly recommend staying here.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

I love this property. I've stayed there before and it's always a good experience. The house is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood. Very centrally located. Stocked with everything you should need. It's clean and taken care of. The pool is s nice size and the backyard is perfect for lounging in shade or sun.

Beautiful property with lawn games, pool & everything you'll need!

  • 5 of 5

There was 8 of us staying here for the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament. It was spacious and had VERY comfortable beds for all. The casita was a nice bonus, a quiet place to lay down separate from the house with its own bathroom, bed, couch and mini fridge. The mini-golf, horseshoes and ping pong table was so nice to have when you didn't want to be in the pool anymore. Lots of patio furniture. The house had every appliance you could need! We could have easily stayed here for another couple days. This is a great property, especially for those considering long term.
