About Beth Fortune

Beth Fortune purchased this House in 2011
Why Beth Fortune chose Magnesia Falls Cove
A few years ago Peter and I spent our first weekend in Palm Springs together. A half-hour after arriving in the desert I saw an unfamiliar look of relaxation settle on my husband's face, and by the end of the weekend, we were both enchanted with the quiet, the bright stars and the blue skies of the desert. We love the Magnesia Falls neighborhood and were thrilled when we found what would become the Biskra House. We hope you feel the same sense of relaxation we feel in this house, and that it makes you as happy as it makes us.
What makes this House unique
It was important to us to find a home that embodied the California indoor/outdoor lifestyle, and this house fits the bill. We love the intense blue skies, the mountain views, and, of course, the sparkling pool. Riley loves sunbathing and thinks that 3600 square feet is just about right for a 12 pound dog.

The Biskra House was perfect for my husband and I, our adult children and granddaughter. Beth has a beautiful home that is so accommodating to her guests. Sitting around the pool early morning and drinking coffee, while listening to all the birds was so peaceful. We grilled out a couple of nights and just hung around the pool; which was very relaxing. The location was close to everything. We truly had a relaxing vacation and enjoyed the beautiful views. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
4th of July family vacation
We had an enjoyable, relaxing 4th of July week at the Biskra house! We spent the mornings and later afternoons playing in the pool, and rested after lunch. The home is large enough for our adult “children” to have space of their own, yet comfortable for time spent all together. Both the owner and the manager responded quickly to all questions. When the blender wasn’t working correctly one evening, a new one was brought the next morning. I loved how everything was so clean and it had everything we needed, including pool towels and toys. Thank you Beth, for sharing your home with us.
It was very accommodating and very well stocked
It very much met our needs being a senior I would have felt better getting in pool if there was a railing however it worked out and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back
Perfect family retreat
This is a wonderful home! It was perfect for our 2 families and 2 dogs. The house is so well equipped, and the layout is so lovely. There is plenty of space and lots of sitting and relaxing areas. We will definitely be back! Thanks for the wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
Jen and Beth have an exceptional property. It was an incredible experience! Five STARS!!!
We organized a couples retreat and the house was unbelievable! It was clean, the beds were amazing and Jen and Beth made it super simple for us. I can’t express how overwhelmed we were with this AMAZING PLACE! We intend to go back and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Palm Springs. 5 STARS accross the board!!!
