About Diane & Jeff

We invite you to come and enjoy our vacation home as we have for the last few years. We bought the house brand new and call it our 'Happy Place'. It is so relaxing and wonderful to come and get away from all the busy days and packed full schedules in all of our lives these days. We have 4 young adult children and two granddaughters and they join us to enjoy the fun in the sun and sometimes we come just to have a quiet place to rest and recharge. We love to travel but we have to say, Palm Springs is our favorite place to stay. PS: Use map below & magnify close up to see pool & park across house.

Diane & Jeff purchased this house in 2006

Why Diane & Jeff chose Palm Springs

We like the quiet and warmth of our desert home while still being 2 miles from the exciting or relaxing activities available in downtown Palm Springs. Where else can you in just one day go up to the snow on the Aerial rotating tram, toboggan on the slopes and come down to swim in the pool and enjoy the desert warmth while being fascinated by the snow capped mountain views from the Jacuzzi!!! You can play golf, tennis, basketball, walk, swim or bike ride or do nothing at all.

What makes this house unique

As they always say in Real Estate LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is key here- which is one of the major reasons we bought at Mountain Gate. Our house looks out to the Palm tree lined park & windmills (not someone else's front yard) and just to the left is the largest 1 of 3 community pool and Jacuzzi. Just walk across the street with your cold drink, radio, pool towel, book, magazines and enjoy the resort style pampered life!

Great rental home!

  • 5 of 5

A few close friends and I stayed at this rental home for the month of April, and it suited our group perfectly. The weather was of course amazing, and the home was very clean. It was also spacious and comfortable. Having the pool directly across the street was a huge bonus and made our stay that much more perfect. Many times, we had the pool to ourselves - the neighborhood was so quiet and anyone we did encounter was friendly. I would definitely rent this home again!

Another wonderful stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in the beautiful Mountain Gate before and will return again for many reasons..

Its a lovely house that's directly opposite the pool area.

Its quiet, spotlessly clean, in a safe gated community and extremely relaxing.

I am a lone traveller a lot of the time felt completely safe within this lovely Palm Springs home..

I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Friendly owners are also a bonus and although I have never personally met them I do feel now that a have been more than once that I know them and there is a mutual respect and trust as I look after their home and treat it like my own.

Fabulous February

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February in this lovely condo. The pictures accurately reflected the condo, and the place was immaculate upon arrival. Our hosts were quick to answer all of our questions, and made us feel very welcome. The pool is across the street from the condo, and we spent many hours relaxing by the pool. Many days we were the only ones at the pool. The gated community is very quiet, and the grounds are immaculately groomed. The condo comes with bikes which my husband and I enjoyed using. Palm Springs is a lovely place to visit, and we hope to return in the future.

Palm Springs House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable in this lovely and comfortable house. The house was very clean which is a must for me. Everything was as the website pictures said it would be. If we had a question the owners were readily available to assist us. We would definitely return again.

Lovely house in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely one week stay at this property in early April. The house is very clean and well-equipped. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. We travelled with our two young children and appreciated the extra space compared to a hotel or condo. The location is excellent and is just a short drive from downtown Palm Springs. We made use of the pool across the street on a daily basis and were almost always the only ones in the pool. We found the owners easy to deal with and quick to reply to our questions. We would not hesitate to return to this property or to recommend it to family and friends.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed In Palm Springs for two months and had a wonderful time exploring the deserts and mountains that abound here. Since we were so near the tram and its trails we bought annual passes and made ten trips to the top. The road to the tram is right across from Mountain Gate. We made over forty hikes during our stay and enjoyed returning to a very clean home with a garage, full kitchen, showers, very quiet neighborhood and internet access. When the connection went down Jeff was very prompt in helping reconnect it. The photos of the house are accurate. View from the back yard is limited to the top of Mt San Jacinto, but the view from San Jacinto to the valley below is grand. This was a very convenient location for groceries, gas, and main roads, that access the deserts and mountains. One of the things I like best about the area is the lack of traffic congestion anywhere and any time.
