I moved to La Quinta in 2004, from Orange County, California. I am single, well-traveled and prior to moving here, owned my own interior design and floral business for 20+ years, working with high-end properties and individuals, from Orange County to Carmel and 2 major accounts in Seoul, Korea. I enjoy friends, family and entertaining, as well as movies, music and theater. I love the desert life and the beautiful, peaceful and tranquil surroundings here in La Quinta. There is nothing that can adequately describe the beauty and sense of peace the mountains provide.

The location is premium for this area - nestled against the mountain, we are protected from winds and experience the most favorable weather conditions. It provides an opportunity to experience fine dining and shopping in local boutiques within a 15 minute walk. The area is surrounded by citrus trees and magnificently landscaped golf courses that provide an amazing view from all angles. Walking in the mornings and evenings affords great exercise and a sense of peace. Close enough to walk to Old Town to visit unique boutiques, shops, restaurants and weekly Farmer's Market. Great coffee shop with homemade goodies while you read the NY Times or local papers. Live music too!
Conveniently located within 15 minutes of Coachella Music Festival, Stagecoach Country Western Festival, BNP Paribas Tennis Garden, as well as 2 Polo fields and the HITS Equestrian Annual International Event.
