About The Owner

We love to head south to our Desert Retreat, as we are so central to so many favorite attractions. We love to head south also to the Sand Dunes National Reserve or even a quick trip into Mexico. A short drive into Disneyland or to Anahiem to take in a Hockey Game, or just out to the coast to visit the Pacific Ocean Beaches. Only a 2 hour drive to LAX International Airport as well as Santa Monica or San Diego areas.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose California Desert

It is a gated and very safe community, with affordable golf, tennis, basketball and pools/spas just moments away.

It is private and relaxing but still so central and close to so many other amenities, including the Natural Hot Springs located just minutes away in the community of Desert Hot Springs.

We love to hike and bike in the nearby 'Joshua Tree National Monument Park' which is just a short drive east on Highway 62

Perfect home, spacious and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Close to all sights and attractions, with a car. Pool was not busy and close by to cool off in the high temperatures.

Palm Springs is pretty and quaint and has a great market on a Thursday night. would go again in cooler times to enjoy the many hikes in the area.

The house is modern and clean with an enclosed garden, very nice.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is a convenient place to stay to enjoy the many activities around Desert Hot Springs: Joshua Tree, Great Morango Canyon, the Salton Sea, street fair and art gallery in Palm Springs, etc. The house is roomy, clean, well maintained and attractively furnished. It has a private yard. You do need a car to take advantage of the interesting places and activities available here.
