THE FABULOUS BACKYARD
The massive entertainers backyard is 3 yards in 1. The lagoon-like pool, hot tub, firepit & golf putting green are surrounded by mature desert landscape, fresh rosemary and palm trees. There are spaces for sun or for shade, like the relaxing poolside alcove just off the master bedroom where you'll love listening to the soothing trickle of the water pouring from the sconces in the pool. The two tranquil, grassy side yards were made for yoga, exercise, meditation, reading a book or a game of catch. Prepare a delicious meal at the gas grill and dine under the stars. There is seating for more than 20. And this quiet, private retreat is the perfect place to catch a gorgeous desert sunset.

Lori is from the deep south and Tim is from the San Francisco Bay Area. We live in the southern California desert resort area near Palm Springs- the Coachella Valley. Tim is a civil engineer and golfer who also plays piano- mostly jazz and classic rock. Lori is a librarian and Internet pioneer who loves to hike and do karaoke unless she's accompanying Tim on some classic rock. Don't Stop Believin' :-)
We love to travel and have a special love of Iceland since Tim's family roots are there but we've also traveled to France, Italy, Monaco, Turkey, Greece, Germany, Spain and Canada.
We are also AirBnB hosts and enjoy sharing our desert home while we are off seeing the world.
