Hi I live along the Southern California coast and visit the desert on weekends when I can. I love to share this home with friends and guests because it is so near the center of all ... while being quiet and relaxing at the same time.
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
Growing up in Southern California everyone dreamed about having a little place to get away from it all, without the hassles of going too far away. Now that I have a place of my own, I look forward to helping you get the most from your stay in the desert.
Some of my favorite things to do here are a) cocktails at one of the new hip restaurants in town [see notes below]
b) passing the evening with friends just sitting by the firepit sipping a nice glass of wine. and
c) spending the afternoon lounging around the pool watching the sun slowly set behind the snow capped mountains.
See how relaxing a weekend can truly be in the desert .
We really enjoyed the house. It was spacious and had everything we needed right here. The pool was great as well as the entire backyard. We loved the house inside and out. Nothing negative to say -- we did not want to leave.
Hike the mountain trails, try off road three wheeler adventures, explore nature in Joshua Tree national Monument, try your hand at black jack at one of the local gaming casinos or stroll Palm Canyon Drive for its diverse shopping and dining options.
