ELEGANCE AND COMFORT IN AN EXCEPTIONAL PRIVATE RESORT HOME

Palm Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This impeccable and outstandingly well designed condominium at Monterey Country Club was entirely renovated early in 2010, featuring floors of elegant porcelain tile throughout the home extending onto an oversized patio terrace, a sophisticated new gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and contrasting maple butcher block counter surfaces, superb interior design exhibiting an artist’s palette of wall colors and stylish contemporary furnishings along with excellent paintings and lithographs on the walls. The ambience of the condo is upbeat, impressive and welcoming at the same time.

Monterey Country Club is a private gated community with guards on duty 24/7, patrolling 375 acres of homes and golf course greens in the heart of Palm Desert, centered in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs. The landscaping is excellently maintained with beautiful seasonal planting of flowers and shrubs, mature trees and well-kept lawns. The grounds offer spectacular views of mountains, lakes and rolling greens providing 27 holes of golf on a championship course designed by Ted Robinson. There are 19 tennis courts, 36 swimming pools with jacuzzis, a fitness center, pro shop and driving range, with a recently remodeled clubhouse dining room, informal lounge and an outdoor breakfast, lunch and snack bar within a short walking distance of our home.

At over 2,000 square feet, this deluxe condo is one of the largest at Monterey Country Club; (see floor plan). A heated swimming pool with hot-tub jacuzzi is across the street and we have a two car garage currently housing an electric golf cart which can be made available to renters. The living room is large and spacious with a vaulted ceiling, plantation shutters, wood burning fireplace, wall mounted flat Samsung HDTV with sound system, DVD & VCR. Time Warner Cable supplies High Speed Wireless Internet service which can be accessed throughout the house. The windows and sliding glass doors in the living room look West over the Golf Club’s 8th green, and glorious afternoon sunshine streams in. These doors open onto an oversized patio terrace running the entire length of the condo and there is access to and from the kitchen as well as the living room. The terrace is paved with the same porcelain tiles as on all the floors in the house and there is a new stainless steel Barbeque with a full set of tools, shade umbrellas and two large round outdoor dining tables, each seating four to six people, along with comfortable garden furniture, recliners and side tables. The terrace is a perfect place for parties as well as for intimate dinners al fresco, enjoying the sunset, and during the days you can watch golfers going by the eighth hole while you bask in the panoramic view of beautiful mountains and greenery surrounding you from your wide terrace, looking West.

An elegant dining area between the living room and kitchen will seat eight people at an oval glass topped table. The contemporary kitchen has butcher block countertops and custom made cabinets with all major appliances in stainless steel, including a double-door SubZero refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water dispenser. The kitchen is completely equipped with a Blender, Toaster, Cuisinart food processor, Coffee Maker and other small appliances and is fully stocked with all the china, glassware, flatware, cookware, bake ware and cooking utensils you might need. A breakfast bar, also surfaced with the maple butcher block, bridges between the kitchen and living room. At home catering can be arranged with an excellent local chef. An atrium filled with greenery is adjacent to the cozy den with TV, VCR and computer modem. The den can be enjoyed as an office-library, has two comfortable couches plus a futon daybed which could accommodate extra guests. The second bedroom has a pair of twin beds, TV, bureau and large mirrored closet, with its own private wood paneled bathroom, his and her sinks, a tub-shower combination and a separate powder room which can be accessed by guests without entering the private bathroom area. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, TV, DVD player, two bureaus and a large mirrored closet, and is at the quiet East end of the house. It adjoins a large private wood-paneled master bath with a full length tub, separate shower enclosure, his and hers sinks and more mirrored clothes closets. All linens, towels, pool towels and bed linens are provided and there is a separate laundry - storage room with a full sized clothes washer and drier, stocked with appropriate supplies.

This delightful condo is truly unique and we hope you will enjoy letting it be your place to relax, luxuriate and enjoy the sunny warmth, beauty and tranquility of the desert atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The home is beautifully maintained and located on the pristine golf course at Monterey with a lovely view of the greens and mountains in the distance. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, lamps lit in every room, and wine. The home was recently renovated with a modern kitchen. The decorations and furnishings were top grade. We stayed in the master bedroom which featured a huge, very comfortable bed with luxurious bedding. The master bath had new fixtures and abundant linens. We slept very well with no disturbances and the heating system worked quietly and efficiently. Overall, we would recommend this unit highly to anyone interested in a first class stay in Palm Desert!

We bought this upscale condo 15 years ago and drove down from Los Angeles on weekends to play golf and soak up the resort atmosphere. We loved desert living so much we have now become permanent residents in nearby Rancho Mirage. We've totally renovated this condominium to be enjoyed by friends and family visitors and rented from time to time.

COMFORT, ELEGANCE, VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed in another of Jasmine Forman's condos at the Monterey Country Club a couple of years ago, we were expecting a beautifully decorated, well-equipped, perfectly maintained home and this is exactly what we found in this beautiful property. The location is ideal for spectacular views of the mountains across the golf course from the spacious patio -- all day long. Due to perfect weather, we enjoyed the patio for almost all of our meals during the entire month and the end unit provided perfect privacy. The pool is just across the street and we felt we had it almost to ourselves most days. We especially love the location of the Monterey Country Club -- easy access to all our preferred dining, shopping and sights. If you're looking for a home away from home that exudes quiet elegance and comfort and a kitchen equipped for a pro, look no further!

Wonderful week in Palm Desert

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples who came to Palm Desert for fun and relaxation in a beautiful setting. We got our wish as this condo was perfect for our vacation. Jasmine has decorated this place beautifully, the unit is clean and up to date, the kitchen was very nice, and the back patio has an outstanding view of the golf course and the mountains beyond. The patio is very well equipped as we barbecued and ate outside several evenings. The unit even has a golf cart for us to use in the immediate vicinity. Also the pool is very close so we could take a dip after golf. Walking distance to the Clubhouse for the golf course. El Paseo Drive is very close as well as many other shops and restaurants. Great location.

A great place to visit in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area. We hope to stay there again.
Well done!
Tom and Sheila

Lovely Condo with Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully appointed and carefully maintained condo looks out on a gorgeous golf course in the foreground with mountains rising and changing with the light and time of day in the background. Jasmine is a wonderful, thoughtful host who makes every effort to make her guests comfortable. We enjoyed our week so much that this is a definite "do-again",

Excellent attention to detail - walk in and start relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We rent through VRBO once or twice a year and have never had a property that was so well equipped and nicely decorated. The owner has an artistic eye and obviously loves to cook; the kitchen has all you'll need to whip up a great meal. Her attention to detail is second to none.

The location of the unit is near the end of the street with a community pool just steps away. We had our adult children and one grandchild with us and the location was perfect.
We would absolutely rent this place again. Monterey Country Club is a great location while vacationing in Palm Desert.
