Gary is an engineering contractor who works very hard in the bay area. I manage commercial, as well as residential properties. We have five kids, two grandchildren, two dachshunds and a chocolate lab. In our lives, it's all about family and good times. We work hard and look forward to our time in La Quinta. We very much enjoy the car show/auction held at the Spa Resort in February and November every year. Gary collects classic and exotic cars as his hobby and me, well, I am the 'core' of the family, enjoying most sharing birthdays, holidays and just good times with our family and dear friends.
We have both loved everything about the Palm Springs area for years. Gary played polo at the Empire Polo Field and El Dorado Polo Club for 15 years so commuting at least two weekends per month made it very easy to purchase a 'home away from home.' This is his third vacation home in the Palm Springs area. We love the surreal atmosphere, the beauty of the mountains and the pleasant people we meet everywhere we go. There are so many restaurants to choose from which always makes fine dining an enjoyable experience while surrounded by exquisite ambiance.
We enjoy the Street Fair located at College of the Desert. This features many different vendors selling everything you can an imagine. There is also quite a variety of food vendors as well with live music. The Palm Springs Follies is always a treat and fascinating to watch. It is always most relaxing to enjoy days laying by the pool, listening to music, enjoying family & friends and using our outdoor bbq/kitchen. We often find ourselves in the pool until 6-7:00pm, having cocktails, meeting golfers as they pass by in their carts and making new friends. Our outdoor dining room with overhead ceiling fans is a great place to dine, play cards/games and visit while watching the sunset. Life doesn't get much better than this!! ;) We hope you choose to stay at our home and you, too, will see why we love this area so much.
