We enjoyed our stay at this Palm Desert
condo tremendously. From the moment
we entered the gates of Palm Valley
Country Club, we were impressed by
the immaculate grounds, colourful
flowers and beautifully tended golf
course. The condo's outlook was perfect
- having the lake in front offered good
views of birdlife, including ducks and
their funny antics, as well as the
occasional egret. As well, there were
always golfers nearby to watch, both
teeing off and on the green. It was great
having the two-storey layout, with no-
one above or below us. The pool and
hot tub were close, and very rarely was
anyone else there. The condo was very
clean and nicely furnished, and
convenient to a good grocery store. We
hope to return next year.
We live in Vancouver, British Columbia, a city made beautiful by mountains, ocean, city scapes and abundant nature. Great as it is, there is something about the desert and 350 days of sunshine that is hard to beat, especially when the monsoons hit home on the West Coast. We bought our property in 2009 after several years of searching. I can say that after personally viewing over 150 homes in the area, I never came across a more spectacular view than from our patio. Of course, we happen to love golf so the appeal of being on the course was rather large. We hope retirement isn't too far off but meanwhile we know that you will enjoy our home for your special vacation.
The Palm Valley Country Club is simply a fantastic community that has a very welcoming feel to it. This is a place you can't wait to get back to.
