About Lorna Willard

We purchased this newer home in preparation of our retirement years down the road. Our hopes are to become 'snowbirds' but for now, we don't have that luxury. If you rent our home, please take tender loving care of it as it is a special place to be for sure.

Lorna Willard purchased this house in 2010

Why Lorna Willard chose California Desert

We are golfers and this course is a beauty and is open to the public. We love the Palm Springs area as it offers such great weather, pretty mountain views, lots of flowers and greenery, great hiking and horseback riding in the Indian canyons and awesome restaurants and shopping everywhere. We fell for this house because of the pool and the neighborhood amenities.

What makes this house unique

We love our privacy, sunshine, friendly neighbors, a pretty pool and private yard. We enjoy the beauty of the interior with the high ceilings and upgraded appointments.

Old time Palm Springs is only a 20 minute drive. The famous "Coachella Music Festival" and "Stagecoach" are just down the road. They run shuttles to those events just outside our neighborhood entry. There are over 100 golf courses in the valley and the huge Palm Desert Tennis stadium is minutes away.

Sun City Shadow Hills

  • 5 of 5

Lorna was very nice and easy to deal with. The kitchen was fully equipped - even a waffle maker! Never once didn't have what we needed. The beds are comfy. Loads of linens. The location by the front gate and dog park is great. The back yard gets the morning sun so it is so nice to sit out in the morning and have a cup of coffee. Lorna left all sorts of food in the fridge so we didn't need to run out to the grocery store our fist day after a long drive. She also left flowers! All staples (food items, spices, cleaning supplies, paper products) are provided and Lorna only asks if you use something up that you replace it. She is very generous and treats you more like family than renters.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home was located on a quiet cul-de-sac about 3/4 of a mile from the Montecito Clubhouse. The private backyard with the pool was a nice retreat on the warm afternoons. The house was well-equipped with anything you might need during your stay. We had a great stay during the month of November. It was the perfect getaway for us, and we look forward to staying in this home again. Thank you, Lorna and Dave!

Wonderful Property, Beautifully Equipped

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property for three months. We really enjoyed the privacy of the large backyard and the private pool. It is a very well-equipped home, within an easy walk or bike ride from an amazing fitness center. My wife took advantage of numerous dance and fitness classes. The owner, Lorna, is very nice and hospitable, and when we first arrived after a long and tiring drive, she'd left food, wine and beer in the fridge for us!

The place is spotlessly clean; the bedrooms are very comfortable and well-appointed; the kitchen stocked with everything you can possibly need. In short, it is a wonderful home away from home for a get-away of any duration. My wife and I unreservedly recommend it.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We needed a rental for three months while our house was being built. We had a great experience there and would urge anyone to stay there. The house is well equipped for anyone. We really enjoyed the community and the location.
