About Lori Pike
We've been in the hospitality industry for over thirty years. Mike is originally from Vancouver, Canada and previously had several restaurants. He currently operates a boutique winery in the Okanagan. Lori is from Scottsdale, Arizona and previously owned a lakeside cottage rental in the Okanagan, which she recently sold. We've always loved the modernist look and were attracted to Palm Springs for its unique mid-century modern architecture, outstanding climate, and large variety of outdoor attractions.
Lori Pike purchased this House in 2013
Why Lori Pike chose Palm Springs
We visited Palm Springs for the first time seven years ago and fell in love the vibe of the community that truly has everything under the sun. From groovy retro architecture, to world-class dining and shopping, to an abundance of outdoor activities -- hiking, cycling, tennis, golf and so much more.
What makes this House unique
The Seven Lakes community is truly special, from the breathtaking scenery, golf literally at your doorstep, and upscale amenities like none other in Palm Springs. Some of our favorite activities -- picking fruit from the citrus trees by our backdoor and enjoying freshly squeezed juice on the patio, brunch at Seven Lakes Country Club, hiking the Lykken trail, sunning by the pool, and walking over to the Parker for dinner and drinks.

A Relaxing Retreat.
The most restful holiday we’ve ever taken. The house is spacious but comfortable, and had everything we needed. I especially loved the private courtyard and fruit trees surrounding the property. Delicious!
We’re counting the days until we can return! Thanks Lori.
We are so glad that you and your husband enjoyed your holiday at That's Amore. We look forward to having you back!
Four weeks of quiet relaxation
We stayed in That's Amore with another couple, and had a wonderful four weeks. The unit has a beautiful open floor plan. The air conditioning here is excellent... we would turn it off when we were out, and found that we could quickly cool the unit once home. For future visitors, we highly recommend you try Pool #4E. It's just out the back door and across the 16th green, and offers shade AND sunshine, making it a comfortable place for everyone to relax. It was a very pleasant stay.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at That's Amore. It's a wonderful retreat from Vancouver's dreary winter weather!
Seven Lakes Condo
Lovely, well equipped mid-century modern property well situated near the airport and convenient to downtown Palm Springs. Owners were most accommodating and the condo was perfect to check out the area and the condo complex. I would stay here again in a flash!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, Rick. We would have you back in a flash! Next time you want to beat the dreary Seattle rain please contact us :)

Great vacation home
We spent three months in Lori's place this past winter and really enjoyed our time there. The house is exactly as pictured - I liked the fact that there are windows on both sides of the living area so it is always bright - and the solar shades are there if needed. The beds were very comfortable too. The air-conditioning works very well so we were able to turn it off when we went out and cool the rooms very quickly on our return. It's a short drive to downtown Palm Springs and not too far to Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage etc. The Palm Springs trolley called The Buzz runs from Thursday to Sunday and we found that very convenient for getting into town without worrying about parking on busy days. We didn't use the golf course but it was certainly well-kept and looked like it would be fun to play. The clubhouse restaurant had very nice meals. Lori was very easy to deal with and really cared that her guests were happy with her place. The TV was equipped with a PVR and many more channels than we could watch and the internet was problem-free . We would definitely return to That's Amore should the occasion arise. Thanks Lori!
I'm so glad you and your husband enjoyed your time this past winter at our home and in Palm Springs and found everything so well appointed and conveniently located.
We would love to have you back again another time.
Wonderful vacation home
Our family has spent a month at Lori's vacation home and we enjoyed every minute of it. The home is exactly as shown on the pictures, it is airy and bright with a wonderful view of the golf course green. We especially loved the fact that it has two patios oriented East and West so practically all day you can choose if you want to sit in the sun or the shade. The loungers are very nice as well. There is central air and it works within a minute. There are two pools very close to the home and there are 13 more at Seven Lakes if you want variety. With a toddler, we loved the fact that we did not have to worry about pool safety all day since the pools are fenced in. The neighborhood is very quiet, no road noise and even airplane noise hardly makes it to Seven Lakes which is surprising considering how close it is to the airport. Downtown Palm Springs is just a short drive away. There are two nice bikes, which is a very nice addition. The BBQ grill is awesome. This home is everything one could possibly need for a relaxing vacation in the sun. We'd love to return again.
We're delighted you and your family enjoyed your time with us, Gabe. We'd love to have you back again this year. All the best for 2016!
Comfortable and affordable accommodations, wonderful host
This rental is very spacious and open, with everything you could possibly need. The price point is also extremely reasonable. For the same price at a hotel, you'd stay at a low- to low/mid-range facility; whereas at this unit, you have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully-stocked kitchen, soft and comfortable bed, cable, fabulous A/C, and you're located right smack in the middle of a golf course. As it is located on a country club, it is also extremely quiet, which for us was wonderful. Lori, the owner, could not be more helpful, kind, and responsive. We would without question stay at this unit again.
So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at That's Amore, Christina. We would love to have you back another time!
