Our family of 4 (and sometimes 6 when the college kids were home) enjoyed this property for a year. Our kids attended kindergarten at the nearby school and we worked and played out of this house as the year flew by. Quiet, convenient, upgraded, and cozy. Owners are easy to deal with and kept the place in great shape for us. All good!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A diamond in the desert. If you are looking for a quiet secluded retreat, this is the place. We were looking for a quiet place to rest and relax with a private pool. This property met all our requirements. The house was roomy and comfortable. The pool, refreshing. The house is stocked with all the basics. I couldn't have asked for anything better. The owners were quick to answer questions. I would definitely go back.

Incredible Palm Desert property!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing property! This was our first visit to Palm Desert and it will most definitely not be our last. Gene and Shirl's home was just about perfect for us. A mid-century ranch that has been completely updated with great finishes. The backyard was awesome- we spent every afternoon at the pool. We had three dogs with us, and the fenced in backyard was ideal for them. Gene and Shirl were extremely responsive to any requests we had. We would HIGHLY recommend this property without ANY reservations.

We will be back!!

About Shirl Donahue

Our second home in the Palm Desert area. This is a great story of a friendship and partnership... 4 friends that share a great passion for tennis, hiking, travel, and cooking from New Jersey. Gene and Shirl and Les and Andi have bought this home together. We have shared great times here and now make this available to you as well for your own special times with family and friends.

Shirl Donahue purchased this house in 2014

Why Shirl Donahue chose Palm Desert

Our favorite area of Palm Desert - the Silver Spur Ranch neighborhood. Part of this area used to belong to the Bing Crosby Estate. Magical area, great for morning and evening walks. We had looked to buy in this area for 4 years before finally finding the right home. Shirl and Gene are on the Coachella Valley Hiking Club Executive Council - we are happy to help you with any hiking information.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful neighborhood in the mountains - great walking trails near the Living Desert and Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains. Close to golf and tennis. Almost walking distance to the El Paseo - restaurant and shopping mecca in Palm Desert.

The best in outdoor living.
