About Heather McDonald

We love sports and the outdoor life. We work hard and play hard, but find time for our circle of friends with whom we share sports & dinner parties. Our families are cherished and we share a love of all animals.

Heather McDonald purchased this condo in 2012

Why Heather McDonald chose California Desert

We've been travelling to the desert for the past 10 years to enjoy the BNP tennis tournament. After looking extensively in La Quinta, Rancho Mirage & Palm Desert, we concluded that Desert Falls was simply ideal for its' amenities and proximity to everything we love to do.

What makes this condo unique

The ultra private back patio with Pond really 'wowed' us! While its nice to socialize at the pool & clubhouse - the serenity of the back patio is second to none. Also, Scott, the Head Tennis Pro is one of the nicest and most accommodating people you'll ever meet and the gym is HUGE, with separate Cardio & weight rooms overlooking the Golf Course.

Great Desert Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location at the end of the street. Quiet and peaceful location with easy access to Desert Falls Clubhouse, tennis courts, and golf course. The back patio has morning sun and is beautifully located facing the lovely ponds and garden. We used the grill outside most evenings. Interior is cozy and warm complete with fireplace and a large screen HD TV. We will certainly visit again.

Beautiful place in the middle of nowhere

Beautiful gated community with lots of greenery. The outdoor backspace patio is very nice, close to tennis courts and pool. Very spacious rooms, with very comfy beds. Hope to visit next year.

very nice

  • 5 of 5

this is a very nice place. Well maintained and trouble free. I enjoyed the back yard patio setting in particular. the water feature is beautiful and relaxing. There isn't a golf course view. The water feature and beautiful back yard face the tennis courts which are screened out by green netting. this didn't bother me at all. Again, this is a lovely home which I recommend without any hesitation!

thanks for letting me stay in your home for the month of February!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for all who want to get away for a long weekend, or longer, with easy access to golf, tennis, hiking and shopping. The condo is well designed and superbly situated for a quiet twosome or foursome, with a comfortable, private patio and close to all amenities, including private swimming pools. Surrounded by good golf courses, including Desert Falls itself, and with a short distance to Ralph's and other stores and restaurants, this is a great place to unwind in comfort and privacy. Highly recommended. Heather, thanks for a great visit!

Thank you, Heather, for allowing us to share your paradise on earth. It was everything we could ask for. My early morning coffee and serenity on the patio is still etched on my mind. We would not hesitate to stay there again and would surely recommend it to everyone. God bless!!!

Great golf, nice amenities & good location

We will return! Perfect for two couples who love to golf. Spent a lot of time on the patio, and enjoyed both pools within a minute walk.
