Tucked inside the Myoma neighborhood of Indio, California, the Sun City Shadow Hills real estate market is beckoning those who are looking to purchase a retirement or vacation home. Indio, set amidst the backdrop of the stunning Coachella Valley and framed by the towering peaks of the San Gorgonio, San Jacinto, and Santa Rosa mountain ranges, offers a host of local amenities and is within close striking distance of Palm Springs, California. 

Shopping and Dining

Located a mere fifteen miles from Palm Springs, the Sun City Shadow Hills community has ready access to outstanding shopping and dining opportunities. Indeed, the area provides some of the best shopping options in all of Southern California with everything from high-end boutique collections to the best deals possible at the Cabazon & Desert Hills Outlet Mall.  This 146,000 square-foot mall is an oasis of discounted shopping choices and includes nearly fifty luxury retail outlets like Max Mara, Helmut Lang, Frette, and Calypso St. Barth's just to name a few. For those who prefer an authentic Palm Springs shopping excursion, carve out an afternoon and visit the historic Palm Canyon Drive area, also known locally as "the strip," and take in the more than 500 shops, boutiques, high-end specialty stores, and a host of dining and entertainment points of interest.

For the "foodies" among the crowd, the area offers some of the premier dining opportunities in all of southern California. Whether residents are looking to grab a quick bite to eat at Hamburger Mary's Restaurant before heading out to take in the sights, or they need to schedule a venue for their wedding anniversary at romantic Castelli's Ristorante, the eating options are endless. 

Parks and Recreation

What's the point of living if you are not living well? That is the philosophy of the Sun City Shadow Hills residents who eschew the daytime soap operas in favor of an active lifestyle, and the outdoor beauty that surrounds Indio is a constant pull for people looking for outdoor recreation. In addition to an impressively appointed clubhouse and recreation center, which is available to all Sun City Shadow Hills residents, the excellent year-round weather is popular among the tennis and gold set. 

The nearby Shadow Hills Golf Club offers a course that both experts and novices really like. This 18-hole course is seamlessly integrated with the desert floor, and offers an elegant venue to get some exercise and to enjoy "the game of gentlemen." For those who prefer the fast pace of the clay courts of the tennis club to the relaxed pace of the golf links, the Indian Palms Country Club & Tennis makes for an outstanding venue to hit the ball back and forth before taking in a cool drink at the clubhouse.


With consistently warm weather and 350 days of sunshine year, Indio has, for several decades, been a popular draw for snowbirds looking to avoid the harshness of northern winters. With the Sun City Shadow Hills real estate development nearing completion, house hunters have a bevy of new purchasing options that come equipped with enviable amenities including upscale appointments like granite countertops and upgraded flooring, cabinetry, and appliance selections.

Most of the homes in this development feature Southern California's most ubiquitous architectural style: the single-level ranch style home. With almost thirty floor plans from which to peruse, homebuyers can choose from a plethora of designs.

Schools, Health, and Transportation

Two public school districts, Desert Sands Unified and Coachella Valley Unified, attend to the educational needs of the area's youth. All six of Indio's elementary schools and both of the middle schools are highly rated by the California Distinguished School Program. In addition to these outstanding public institutions, there are also a number of private educational venues for parents to look into for their children's education.

Residents of the Sun City Shadow Hills real estate enjoy unprecedented access to world-renowned medical facilities that are ideally situated for fast action in case of a medical emergency. Located only five miles away, JFK Memorial Hospital has been rated in the top ten percentile in the nation for effective and successful joint replacement procedures, and that is just one aspect of their comprehensive treatment program. Eisenhower Medical Center offers a full range of health and wellness services to the community.

Local and regional airports from LAX to Ontario allow for easy access to the area for owners of Sun City Shadow Hills real estate with an eye toward using their property as a vacation home. Once in the area, a sophisticated network of state and federal highways easily connects them to where they need to be in southern California.
