The Lakes Country Club is a private club with a spectacular 27-hole championship golf course, 15 tennis courts, 44 pools and spas, a dramatic 45,000 square foot clubhouse, and a health/fitness center all surrounded by incredibly lush landscaping dotted with lakes and waterfalls. The architecture reflects a relaxed early California Ranch flavor which truly sets The Lakes apart from all other clubs in the desert.
This single-level, 1,358 sq.ft. 'Casita' is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac which overlooks the golf course. It features two separate bedroom suites, ideal for one or two couples. The master suite offers a stunning water view which includes the relaxing sights and sounds of your own waterfall! The living/dining room also orients to the water as does the newly expanded stone patio. The patio also offers incredible views of the mountains, golf course and two charming walking bridges that lead you to a secluded lake front pool and spa.
This charming home has been almost completely remodeled and refurnished. Most guests to date have been friends of the owner so every detail has been considered in order to make this a truly complete vacation home. It's all here, including a beautiful new kitchen, private entry courtyard, golf cart, bikes, 46' TV, Bose DVD/CD player, DVR, wireless internet access and original artwork. Almost every room features high ceilings, lots of light and the romance of plantation shutters.
To view location, search 55 Ponderosa, Palm Desert,CA. on Microsoft's Bing Maps and use Bird's Eye view. This is the 3rd condo from end of the cul-de-sac on the North side of the street. Since its located on Ponderosa and features a lake view we affectionately refer to the property as 'The Pond.'
Sorry, No Smoking, No Pets and No Children, Please.
Natalie and I have been coming to Palm Desert since we were kids and we love it here! It's so relaxing! The Lakes was always my favorite Country Club -- not too big, not too small. It has a casual 'early California' elegance and the people are very friendly.
Larry purchased this condo in 2006
We bought this property because we love the location, it sits in a quiet cul-de-sac and views a small secluded lake. We call it 'The Pond' because it's on Ponderosa Cir. It has become the perfect retreat for our friends, family & guests.
Extended stone patio off rear. Private front courtyard with BBQ. Quiet interior cul-de-sac location.
My husband and I stayed at "The Pond" and cannot say enough great things about our time there. The attention to detail in all rooms made our stay very comfortable, we didn't want for anything. The condo was very, very clean and beautifully furnished and decorated. The kitchen, especially, had all the necessary items required for gourmet cooking. We have stayed in many rental condos and, without a doubt, The Pond was by far our best experience---we look forward to our next visit!
This vacation rental is simply amazing! We have stayed here a few times now and really don't want to stay anywhere when traveling to Palm Desert. The owners are very nice and they keep the place immaculate! They call it "The Pond" and the name serves it right. There is a beautiful lake right outside! The neighborhood is great, there are tons of community pools to choose from too. Which is nice because its always easy to find your own private pool. We will be back soon!
A perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery. This condo looks beautiful in pictures, but totally exceeded our expectations when we arrived! Beautifully updated and maintained, we really can't say enough about how much we loved our stay at "The Pond!" The kitchen and bathrooms are gorgeous. The location is perfectly adjacent to the most wonderful swimming pools, and we loved being able to utilize the bikes and golf cart to wheel around the Lakes property. What a gorgeous community! The owners were so gracious and lovely to deal with. We were thrilled about the whole experience!
We have been at The Lakes for 14 years now & wouldn't go anywhere else. Wonderful location & so much to do without even leaving the property.
We are yearly renters at the "Pond" & every year just gets better! Only one word to describe this condo ... "perfect"! Spotlessly clean, comfortable & beautifully decorated. Nothing is missing! Lovely location at the end of a quiet street with a beautiful view of a lake & the golf course.
Bonus ... the owners are wonderful, kind, considerate & so thoughtful of your every need.
This property is the best The Lakes has to offer having visited other sites. After staying several times in the perfectly appointed and decorated, yet very comfortable home we decided this will be an annual destination. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the waterfall.
We have stayed many places in the desert, but this is by far our favorite place to vacation. With lots to do there, it's a quiet place to relax after golf or tennis. We enjoy the private view patio and upgraded amenities. Beautifully decorated and maintained too!
Look no further for a condo at the Lakes! This one really seems brand new with all the upgrades. It is fully equiped with anything you may need including bikes,a golf cart and towels for the pool! The pool area has both golf course and lake views. We loved having coffee in the morning outside with the beautiful desert views! The Lakes is a relaxing, quiet community with friendly people!
