About Fiona Black

We are a canadian family originally from Scotland. We have three kids who are almost grown-up now and we all love to visit the desert in both the summer and the winter months. It is our dream to spend our winters here. We love the outdoors being active and if the weather is cool we will go hiking in the desert. We enjoy relaxing on our private patio spending time with family and chilling out at the different swimming pools. Listening to the birds and taking in the beauty of the palm trees and the mountain views. We are just discovering how much there is to do here! Not only is there golf, tennis,hiking,and pool time but biking, shopping, restaurants,shows, San Diego and the Grand Canyon are fairly short road trips from here that my parents did last year. So we are just getting started!

Fiona Black purchased this house in 2010

Why Fiona Black chose Palm Desert

We bought this property because we had been down to the area with friends on vacation several times and really love the spectacular mountain scenery,the beautiful grounds and it is very private and quiet. This resort is very well maintained and the tennis courts and pools are lovely. It is a great location, central to all attractions.We could not have been happier with our decision we absolutely love it!

What makes this house unique

We loved our house when we first saw it as it has high ceilings a very large master bedroom and en-suite with huge built in closets.

There is lots of space throughout and the wrap around private patio is enormous and gets lots of sun. Listening to the birds singing on the patio is so relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good value. Very centrally located within a 5 minute drive to all types of shopping. One block walk to the PNB Paribas world tennis open. Mostly quiet, retired neighbors with song birds serenading you with your morning coffee on your private sun deck. Two large flat screen HD televisions. Owner very accommodating. Good for long or short stays (ours was a happy 5 months).

Great Villa in Desert Breezes

  • 4 of 5

listing description is accurate, location is great a 5 min drive to great shopping and restaurants. The property was clean, beds very comfortable. The owner gave great customer service. I would recommend to a friend or relative. We love Beer Hunters restaurant and the 10 minute drive to Old La Quinta to Stuft Pizza and the Crab Pot.

Great Comfortable Home

My Husband and I stayed at this home and found it to be very clean and comfortable. Sun all day on the lovely wrap around deck. The area is very close to everything you would need. We hope to return next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Perfect Palm Desert Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this spacious, beautifully kept home. New beds, furniture, tv's and carpets throughout. Huge master suite, very comfortable living area, very well equipped kitchen, private patio garden. Quiet, safe, well maintained development. Home is just steps away from two pools and hot tubs and a short easy walk through the gardens to the clubhouse, tennis courts and main pool. Owner is very accommodating and all arrangements went perfectly. Our family had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed lots of swimming and tennis at Desert Breezes, hiking and bouldering in the beautiful Joshua Tree National Forest, the Living Desert Zoo, the Aerial Tram Ride and hiking in the mountain forest, Knotts Soak City water park, Thousand Palms Oasis, the Aviation Museum, La Quinta, Idyllwild and the Premium Outlet Malls!

Great place in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place! Our group stayed for four nights and couldn't have been happier. The owner accommodated an early arrival and was available by phone & email throughout our stay. This place had everything we needed, including a patio, community pool, great kitchen, comfortable beds, etc. The list goes on and on. We needed to be close to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which was an easy 10 minute walk. 5 stars/A+ all around.

A Wonderful Family Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Desert Breezes on a star-flled night in June, 2011. The property was welcoming, spacious and nicely appointed on a corner lot. Everything known about the property in advance was easily found upon our arrival (i.e keys, A/C directions, access to tennis, pool, etc) The layout of the house is a perfect fit for family living. The surrounding area provides endless outdoor adventure experiences, casual dining, shopping and attractions. The Living Zoo, Joshua Tree and the Aviation Museum were highlights for our kids. We highly recommend this lovely property!
