DEIDRE R. | PALM DESERT AND NEWPORT COAST, CALIFORNIA, USA
Because it’s a long trip from the Bahamas, Deidre’s family decided to super-size their “Cali Cool” vacation from one week to three weeks in December 2021.
They stayed at Marriott’s Desert Springs Villas I and II in Palm Desert and Marriott’s Newport Coast® Villas — courtesy of three exchanges and two Getaways — and “zigzagged from the craggy cliffs of California’s Pacific coast to its arid desert and towering, snowy peaks,” says matriarch Deidre.
Several in their group of seven had never seen snow, so they arrived at Bear Mountain Ski Resort with great anticipation.
“Whooping like little kids, unabashedly we threw snowballs and made snow angels, oblivious to curious onlookers,” Deidre says. “Very, very cold, indeed, but a priceless memory.”
She adds, “Our California vacation made possible by Interval International exchanges will go down in our family annals as one of the best ever.”
