I've been going to Palm Springs/Palm Desert every year for awhile now. I always stay somewhere new to switch things up. The condo and the location did not disappoint. The owner was also easy to work with.
The condo itself is not huge, but perfect for 2 or 3 people. It's stocked with everything you need: towels, sunblock, soap, lotion, kitchen stuff, blankets, sheets, etc. There's a queen size bed and a sleeper sofa. The sleeper sofa was comfortable for me, but I could see it being not comfortable for some people (the mattress isn't very thick). There are a couple pools near the condo and the community itself is very nice. It's gated community and there's a security guard walking around, so it's safe.
The condo sits on the edge of North Palm Springs. It's easy to get to the freeway via N. Indian Canyon Dr., but if it's really windy or there's a sandstorm then this road could be closed. There's an Albertson's about 5-minutes away and a gas station nearby. I like the views from N. Palm Springs. It seems like you're closer to the mountains. I didn't have any time for hiking, but i'm guessing there are some trails nearby.
Overall, a great value and a great place to stay. I would stay here again and recommend it to couples or travelers who don't want to break the bank staying at a posh Palm Springs resort. Thanks!
