We are a family of five. We have two girls and one boy. Our daughters are 12 and 6 and our son is 9 years of age. My husband and I are native Southern Californians and have had the good fortune of being able to access the desert our entire lives. The desert provides an escape from the pace of the Southern California lifestyle for so many Southern Californians. The natural beauty of the desert seems to wrap itself around you providing a sense of tranquility within. Since the respective births of each of our children, we have been able to expose them to this environment as well. The desert pace offers a healthy environment in which to decompress while reaquainting with family and friends and nurturing the simplicity of time spent together.
The Owner purchased this condo in 1972
It was not a choice to 'buy a vacation rental in this location' but rather a privilege to nourish the memories established over a 37 year period of my husband's family's ownership of this condominium. It is with honor that we continue to create new traditions and experiences while maintaining a sense of goodness created over the years.
Our experiences in the desert have evolved as we have as a couple. Initially, golf and tennis were amongst our daily endeavors while venturing to world renowned restaurants were a favorite to liven up the nightlife. As our children have become part of our lives, we have cultivated our interests more in line with theirs. It began with The Children's Museum, The Living Desert, swimming and timeless strolls to the El Paseo strip to enjoy a meal out and savor the beauty of colorful art intertwined with storefronts. As our kids have grown, we have integrated wonderfully serene hiking into the repertoire. It seems as if we have come full circle for, the children can be a part of golf and/or tennis also. Truly, the timelessness of the desert provides so much for so many of any age.
