About Shar Weller
My husband Steve and I purchased our California property in 2009 with the hope of someday escaping the harsh Canadian winters. We love our Cali house and yard and are happy to share it with others since we can only be there part time. We strive to maintain our house and yard so everyone is comfortable and has a wonderful vacation experience when they visit the house.
Shar Weller purchased this House in 2009
Why Shar Weller chose Indio
We chose this property because we love the Coachella valley and all it has to offer including fabulous weather, great golf, fine dining, hiking, biking and close proximity to San Diego, Los Angeles and even Las Vegas! The more time we spend at the house, the more we have come to appreciate the beauty of the area, the great airport, shows offered at the casinos and wonderful little community of Indian Palms where the house is located.
What makes this House unique
It if often hard to find a vacation home that has a yard large enough for a pool, firepit area, lots of room for a table/chairs and loungers and still have room for yard games all in a private setting. We find our yard fits the bill on all accounts and we try to constantly add to and improve the yard when we spend time at the house. We always hope that our guests will enjoy the property as much as we do each and every time we get to visit.

What an excellent choice of properties.
We travelled with 3 adult couples. The home was excellent and had everything we needed.The kitchen was well stocked with all utensils, pots, pans etc. It even had salt pepper and a good variety of spices, which we added to upon leaving.
The out door space was lovely. Warm Mrng sun was wonderful.
Cool evenings we used the fire pit under the gazebo for evening cocktails.
We had paid extra to heat the pool and did help otherwise in December water would be rather cool.
Enough room for six adults and enough space to get away if u needed. Very relaxing 10 days in the home.
Shar was awesome to deal with, every detail was passed on to us before we left Canada, as detailed as to what drawer the garage remote and GPS was in. Yes they provided a GPS. House is exactly as advertised.
My wife and I, and our friends put up the Christmas tree and did some holiday decorating with Shar's blessing. We had a blast.
We did a lot of touring a must is the Salton Sea and the town of Bombay Beach an old LA playground for the rich and famous. Be prepared because you will think you are on a set from the Walking Dead and waiting for the walkers. Stop at the legion for a beer at Bombay Beach.
Next check out Salvation Mountain on Beal Road outside of Niland CA. Worth the drive and then check out Slab City, if you thought Bombay Beach was something wait until you see Slab City. Check it out on U tube.
Joshua Tree National Park is well worth the trip.
Played golf in and around Indio as well. All very reasonably priced and excellent.

Thank you Glen and Bren for the great review. So glad you enjoyed your time at the
house and took advantage of exploring the area. We went to a few of the attractions
you mentioned ourselves when we arrived at the house - thanks for the tips! Thank
you as well for decorating you did - it was fantastic to arrive and have the tree already put up and holiday lighting and décor in place - much appreciated. You are more than welcome to come back at anytime you visit the desert area again - we would love to have you!
EX DESERT RESIDENT IN CT
I was extremely lucky to get be able to get a 7 night stay after my original 3 week vacation plans changed due to a family medical emergency. The first thing I want to mention is the owner, Shar is the BEST most genuine, cooperative and understanding person I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. She line of communication was ABOVE and BEYOND . Upon my outstanding. On my arrival the home was immaculate and well stocked. This 3 bedroom , 2 bath 2 car garage one level home is absolutely well kept, very private and extremely comfortable. This home includes a laundry room with full size washer and dryer with sink and folding area. It is located in Indian Palms Country Club, a 24 security guarded community The bedrooms (1-master with king and 2-gusests (1) queen and (1) 2-twin beds are well appointed and the entire home is professionally furnished. The master bed room has an en-suite master bathroom with deep bath tub, double sinks, high quality and well crafted tile and pavers through out. The guest bathroom is equally impressive and well designed. The well stocked and fully equipped kitchen is loaded with all the utensils and equipment needed to prepare any type of snack or 5 course holiday meal. The dining area includes a high top dining table that looks unto the living area with views of the back and side yards and the beautiful refreshing in ground pool. The side and back yard areas (that can be viewed through large windows with Bermuda shutters) allow you to enjoy the professionally landscaped in the local desert palms, flowering shrubs and cactus. The well manicured lawn is the GREENEST I have ever seen. The pool side patio table, was my morning coffee and Desert Sun newspaper hang out and in the evening this same area served as my favorite brew spot to evening the evening desert sunset. The overall experience here was very comfortable, relaxing and private. There is a bit of road noise however the surrounding mountain views and palms make it magical. I was once a long time desert resident and Indian Palms still my favorite community and now this now is my favorite home away from home. I definitely recommend this outstanding home to EVERYONE wanting an upscale comfortable immaculate desert pool home. I want to thank Shar and Steve for sharing your AWESOME home. I can't wait to return 3 weeks this summer and 3 weeks next November. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Healthy New Year and great holiday season!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your stay so much - now I'm sure you understand why the house is our "happy place". I know you will have a great time during your vacation next summer when you will really be able to get a lot of use from the swimming pool. You are more than welcome at our house anytime you would like to come visit.
My family had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home. From the very start, the owner was so kind and accommodating to our needs. The home has a very nice lay out, is furnished well, is in a safe gated community, and has an excellent a/c. The backyard and pool are beautiful. We were able to get some much needed rest, relaxation, and family time during this vacation. We honestly cannot wait to go back. Thank you so much for opening your home to us and for accommodating our needs!
Thank you so much for your kind comments, we are glad you enjoyed
your stay. Please feel free to come and vacation at our house anytime you are in the
area - we would love to have you!
Lovely, lovely house and pool......
I stayed with my family for a week in this lovely house in Indio. All the family agree this is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in, both inside and outside! The inside is comfortable, clean and well equipped with soap and paper provided. I especially liked that the AC worked well. But the jewel of the house really is the lovely south-facing outside area, perfect for relaxing with a wonderful pool with a perfect sun bench, a large barbeque and nice grass areas. I liked very much that the house was free from neighbours on one side making us feel more relaxed The greeting we got from Carolyn on our arrival made us feel safe and comfortable in the house. I would most definitely come back for another stay. Thank you so much Shar for letting us stay in your wonderful house, we had the best vacation!
Thank you so much Pia for your kind words - I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the property. We would love to have you visit again anytime.
We loved staying at Shar and Steve's home! The backyard is beautifully landscaped and we spent many afternoons relaxing by the pool after a round of golf. The house is roomy and comfortable and everything we needed was provided. Shar is very accommodating. During our stay, we enjoyed all that the area has to offer...such as golf, polo, Thermal Equestrian Competition, shopping, great restaurants and the Humana Golf Challenge. Thanks again, Shar and Steve!
Labor day weekend trip
We especially enjoyed the pool area where we lounged around, grilled burgers, and soaked up the sun. Inside, the kitchen was fully equipped with essential cooking utensils. The rooms were spacious and the couches were comfortable! There were 6 of us there and we still had room to spare. The neighborhood was also quiet and perfect for a relaxing labor day weekend away from the daily hustle and bustle. Overall, the home was clean and just as described online, if not better.
Shar was great to work with, very timely and professional as well. We can't wait to be back!
