About Christine Culwell

My husband and I own a General Construction company that builds cell sites for the major celluar carriers in Chino, CA.

Christine Culwell purchased this house in 2011

Why Christine Culwell chose California Desert

Some friends of ours used to own this property whom bought it when it was first built in 2005. They moved to Texas and we purchased it from them after using it for a few years for our own family.

What makes this house unique

This home is in the perfect location within the complex. We can walk to the community pool/spa, the private beach if we dont feel like taking the boat out and at night the golf course is amazing to look at as you BBQ on the back patio.

I don't know what this is

  • 5 of 5

Only problem was that the pool and jacuzzi in the complex were being serviced, so no water.

We like to take a swim at the end of the day.

Nice location for families

  • 4 of 5

This rental had plenty of amenities for everyone, direcTV on flat screens, Wii for the kids, ton of blu-ray & DVDs to wind down with at night, the backyard patio is awesome to hang out on all night, under the stars! The location was conveniently located across the neighborhood from private steps to beach. The house had plenty of sleeping area. There was even a pack'n'play for the baby! Also located near parking lot as there is no street parking. Only cons are no wi-fi & trailer/boat parking is limited (cumbersome to have to unhitch all weekend), otherwise, great spot & the owner Christine was a pleasure to work with!

Car: recommended

Ghost town is within a 20 minute drive and is very fun for the kids. It has little shops and they can feed the animals.
