Terrific location for spring family vacation

This condo was perfect for grandparents, two adult sons, daughter-in-law and granddaughter (6 years old) to meet for a spring break holiday. The accommodation was comfortable, well equipped, well laid out for both privacy and family time. The price was very reasonable and the owners so helpful and pleasant to deal with. The kitchen cupboards had a nice assortment of spices, olive oil, vinegar, etc. so do check out the cupboards before grocery shopping. We had no problem using the grill on the front patio. There is deep soaker tub with shower in one bathroom and a convenient walk-in shower in the other for those with less flexibility!
There are lots of maps and brochures in the condo and driving in the area was pretty easy. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the patio facing the golf course at all times of the day - good shade in the heat, lush view and great entertainment watching the workers and golfers! Granddaughter loved rolling down the hill after the golfers finished for the day. The sunshine was so good for our souls but required lots of sunscreen for these snowbirds. It did get very windy for a few days making it a bit cold and dusty to sit outside but that may have been unusual. We went swimming at least once every day. The pool around the corner was so convenient and warm. We virtually had it all to ourselves. Granddaughter liked the salt water pool at the clubhouse because the water didn't sting her eyes. We took our own beach towels but there were lots available in the condo so don't bother. So much to do in the area that everyone found something they enjoyed and hardly had time to relax. We took in the art museum and street festival in Palm Springs, living desert zoo and date farm in Palm Desert, Joshua Tree Park and Salton Sea, aerial tram, hiking in the canyons, biking, picking grapefruit. We couldn't figure out how to make the big screen TV work until our tech savvy son showed up, but there are so many TVs that it didn't matter and everyone could watch their own program. While the owners normally only rent the condo for a month or more, they were very generous in allowing us to use it for just one week at a reduced price. All in all, this condo made for a fabulous holiday for our scattered three generation family to get together and escape the snowy east coast and rainy pacific northwest for a short break.
