About Shauna Nelson

Jim and I have owned our place at Desert Falls Country Club for 8 years. We love coming and playing some golf, sitting in the clubhouse and enjoying the desert.

Jim is the South Pacific Regional Manager of Hain Corporation which is the largest organic food company in the world. He is on the road most weeks so we do enjoy our weekends in our place in Big Bear, California.

Shauna is the office manager for Adams Properties in Southern California. I manage industrial parks through Southern California.

We have 4 grown children, 3 married and our bachelor. We have a 5 yr. old grandaughter that lives in Austin, Texas with her parents and a 10 month old grandson that is about 8 minutes from us who also lives with his parents!

We both enjoy golfing and usually are doing it together wherever we can. We both enjoy traveling and plan our trips a year in advance.

We love our desert place and our vacation rental also in Kauai. Both of these properties we bought with family in mind. The kids enjoy visiting both of these destinations and we hope to spend lots more time in them in the future.

Shauna Nelson purchased this villa in 2001

Why Shauna Nelson chose Palm Desert

We decided to purchase in the desert because we can be there in 1.5 hrs. from Orange County where we live. Where our villa is located just was the topper. Desert Falls Country Club is gorgeous and we are right on the Par 3 lake hole and can watch golfers all day long if we want. Since we are both golfers we enjoy that. The mornings and evenings are the best with the mountains and gorgeous weather. We furnished it so couples can enjoy their time away just as we like to do.

What makes this villa unique

Desert Falls Country Club is known as the friendliest club in the desert and that it is. Everyone is so helpful and the food is really good in the Clubhouse. If you enjoy shopping, the outlet mall is the best and you will find upscale shopping all over the desert. Great restaurants abound and we will give you our choices and information when you stay at our place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“The house exceeded my expectations. It was a Beautiful home and the back yard views were breathtaking I woke up every morning and sat outside for a hour just soaking in the sun and views. The host provided everything we needed and everything was in super close distance to the house so it was very convenient I will def be booking this home again when I go back next year. Thank you for being a great host once again. ”

Exceptional Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stay in the desert four or five times a year. This was our favorite, by far. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the patio watching the ducks, turtles, and other water life on the lake...about 20 feet away! Then the golfers! Hours of entertainment, both morning and during our afternoon beverages!

The condo is clean, well decorated, and has everything one needs to relax, cook inside or out if you wish, and super comfortable beds. The location? Superior. We loved our stay, appreciated the attention to detail, and the prompt and courteous responses by the owners for all questions. We felt extremely safe in the guard gated community and the 24 hour security. The automatic garage door into the spacious garage was a big plus.

Will we stay again? Absolutely. Thank you, Shauna.

We just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks in this condo. We agree with all the positives mentioned by other tenants. We would love to stay here again but it fills up with regulars, so we're out of luck. Thanks Shauna and Jim for being such helpful, agreeable landlords.
