About Melissa

My husband and I purchased this property as a place to relax and get away. We try to get to Palm Desert at least twice a year. Now that we have very small children, it is often difficult to get away. This property is a vacation home. We only rent to responsible adults and have no more than 2 renters each year, usually 1 for season. We also do a background check on potential renters. The property is clean and well maintained.

Melissa purchased this house in 2011

Why Melissa chose California Desert

Our vacation home was set up for relaxation. We have a beautiful crystal blue pool that is very well maintained. We have children, so the guest room has bunkbeds- size double, not twin- perfect for teenagers or adults. The room also has everything a kid/or big kid could want; their own private soda machine and Sony Play Station 3. We have lots of board games too. One of our favorite things to do is BBQ, night swim and play board games with our kids until the wee hours. We also love to walk over to the Desert Springs Marriott and take the boat ride to Mikado restaurant for dinner.

What makes this house unique

This house is a vacation home. It is very private and quiet. The house is kid friendly and is located next to some of the best restaurants in Palm Desert. We often walk to Gorilla Burger- best burger in the desert and will also wonder over to El Paseo - only a 2.5 mile walk. There is a community center less than 1 mile away where the kids play basket ball pick up games at the gym. We have all tile floors, so you don't have to worry too much about mess & allergens. We have a small dog run on the side of the house. You will find many people walking their dogs throughout the gated community all times of day, but we are at the end of a cul de sac, so you won't see many people pass our home.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home was excellent - could walk to Bristol Farms, Albertsons and many excellent restaurants. The yard was very quit and private in a very safe and quiet gated community. The pool was very enjoyable and the yard was not affected by the wind. The master bedroom had a nice comfy bed and the living room furniture was very comfy too. There was a good supply of dishes and utentils. This home is great for families with young children and pets. The owner of the house was very good about taking calls and helping out.
