About Donna

I am a Real Estate Agent with a passion for lovely homes! As a Realtor, I also love decorating and worked hard to make this home a warm, peaceful and inviting place to help anyone relax and unwind.

Originally from the east coast, one year I took a vacation to southern California and saw what I was missing! It was love at first sight when I saw all the natural beauty, magnificent Coast line and breathtaking topography, it prompted me to take the next step and move here permanently. Since 1994, I have never looked back. Then on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, I fell in love all over again with all PS has to offer and searched for the perfect home and luckily found it!

Donna purchased this house in 2004

Why Donna chose California Desert

After looking at many homes I discovered Mountain Gate in Palm Springs - A gated community of brand new homes with 3 pools and two tennis courts, near the Ariel Tram Way. I wanted to buy a brand new house with spectacular mountain views and to be a couple of minutes from town. The builder showed me 8 floor plans and we drove around looking at all the empty lots. I picked the lot with the best mountain views. I picked the largest home with the best floor plan. I had looked at over 500 homes over a two year period before this home was purchased and felt this new home was perfect for me to entertain family and friends. This is a wonderful home for family vacations, golf excursions, and of course, romantic quiet getaways.

What makes this house unique

This is a large home and that can accommodate 8-10 people comfortably.

Spectacular Mountain Views from all living spaces with light and bright

lovely sunlight during the day. Pool and hot tub 1 minute from property

that's great for swimming and relaxing after golfing all day. Tennis courts

5 minutes from home.

One level home, makes it easy to navigate for children and elderly.

Attached one bedroom one bath Guest Casita with private entrance is convenient if one of your guests wants privacy and their own space.

Large open Great Room. Chef's Gourmet kitchen, great to cook in and

fun to entertain.Gigantic Master Suite, spacious with great mountain views to gaze up at while you're in bed enjoying your morning coffee. Lots of love, careful thought and energy has been put into this home.

We hope you will love our home as much as we do.

We impeccably maintain our home with the help of a professional Property Manager and cleaning staff. Rest assured when you arrive, it our place be neat and clean and in turn key condition.

Great customer service, your happiness and exceeding your expectations are my number one priority. I build my business on repeat visitors and referrals, so I hope to knock your socks off so you'll visit again and again each year, while sharing with friends your experience of our beautiful home and magical Palm Springs!

Many Pluses to this Property

  • 4 of 5

For our stay for the month of February we were impressed by the spaciousness of each room, the well stocked kitchen, good appliances and lots of good towels and bedding. Good use was made of the bikes available, riding around the Mountain Gate development for our exercise. We were disappointed the nearest pool was not heated.

This was our sixth home rented annually in greater Palm Springs and not our first choice on location, more traveling to theaters, favorite restaurants, friends in Indio, but great access to our many favored Palm Springs restaurants and activities. Having two ensuites for two couples was appreciated. With this location for us and some updating, particularly flooring, required plus larger cleaning and hidden VRBO booking fee, we felt the accommodation was somewhat over priced, unless you need all four bedrooms.

Great Place to Escape the Winter Blues!

  • 5 of 5

We visited here last winter and were thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. It was located near great amenities, golf courses and dining. The house itself is clean, well maintained and had all of the amenities we needed. Would highly recommend.

Great Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My winter escape from Chicago. Stayed at this house for 4 months. This is one of the best houses I rented. I have been at Ojai, Laguna beach and Redondo beach for the past three years for winter. House is in a gated community close to town and close to windmills. House is open and spacious. Kitchen is well equipped. Loved having the Casita. Great place to entertain my golf buddies from Chicago. Nice backyard where we spent drinking morning coffee and evening tea. Few steps from the house is Jacuzzi. I used to enjoy the Jacuzzi looking at the surrounding mountains. Only problem was the reception on my cell phone was poor and intermittent. However they have free local and long distance unlimited calling with their landline. You have to rent a PO box. Home owner and Manager were very responsive and quickly resolved issues promptly. All in all, it was a great place to stay and I may return again in the future.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property for a long weekend of golf in the Palm Springs area. The house was very reasonably priced and absolutely immaculate. All the instructions we received were very clear and easily followed. I will definitely be checking the availability of this house on all my future visits to the area. Thank you Donna and Elizabeth for a wonderful stay.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great place for our family of 8 adults to get together. The living area and kitchen are spacious. We enjoyed cooking together and having good conversations at the dining table. The 3 bathrooms made it easy to get ready for going out or clean up after our wonderful hike on the San Jacinto mountain. The home was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.

The location is wonderful, close to the Palm Springs Areal Tram and downtown Palm Springs with many great restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is very quite and peaceful. We would recommend this house to anyone that needs a larger place to gather.

January stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

This home definitely had great view of the mountains, as well as plenty of space inside - including a huge master bedroom and kitchen. It was extremely clean and well appointed, with comfortable beds and

just about everything else a person could want. The owners were very helpful with many good suggestions and lots of great information. The casita was great for the couple that appreciated a bit more privacy. Our family gathering there was wonderful!
