Dazzling desertscape

Who says the desert can’t be green? Located in the desert city of La Quinta, Casa Del Sol is a secret paradise. Enjoy privacy in the walled courtyard, whether you’re sunbathing in the perfectly landscaped yard or gazing at the Santa Rosa Mountains.

Towering trees

Classic elegance meets forest sanctuary at this lovely beachside retreat on Hilton Head Island. The home's mature trees and expansive landscaped lawns shine beautifully in the sun's glow. Take in the soothing setting from the sun porch, pool or patio — or along your stroll to the beach.
