About Nanci Smed

We are the Smed Family - Chad, Nanci & Tabitha. We live in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy traveling to Palm Desert to spend time with family and friends. The Lakes CC has everything to keep the young and old entertained and relaxed. We hope you will consider staying in our vacation rental the next time your travels bring you to the beautiful Coachella Valley.

Nanci Smed purchased this condo in 2009

Why Nanci Smed chose Palm Desert

We selected the Lakes CC for the spaciousness of the units, private patios, gorgeous landscaping and because of the many beautiful pools. It is also close to El Paseo for fabulous designer shopping and many of our favorite hiking spots and golf courses.

What makes this condo unique

The trillium shaped pool and spa just over the footbridge from the rear patio rarely is used by other guests, and will feel like your own private water sanctuary. The pool deck is situated within one of the larger lakes, making it feel like a tropical island. Take a dip, or sunbathe while watching the white egrets float past the spray fountains and babbling water features.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a home away from home for our family. Everything from it's location, to it's fun, fresh decor, to the way that every need is thought of in how the home is set up, makes it a rare find on the vacation rental market. We will keep coming back and would highly recommend it!

Mid-Century Decor with Updated Styling in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location, great community, comfortable and spacious unit!

Photos don't begin to show how lovely this condo is! The decor is tasteful mid-century modern with gorgeous furnishings. It is completely equipped with all you could ever need in every room! All the latest electronic conveniences like iPod docking stations, flat screen TVs, and my son loved the Wii! The pool is super close to the unit, just sets from the back patio.

Enjoyed working with the owner. Was very helpful and quick with responses. Great resource for all things to do in Palm Springs and the desert!

We'll be returning next year for sure!

Our favorite place to stay in Palm Desert!

  • 5 of 5

Why buy a time share or stay in an expensive hotel???

We won't go anywhere else in the Palm Springs area! My family loves to stay here because there is a pool and hot tub right out the back door, a cook's kitchen and grill, luxurious baths and super comfy beds! It also has a great golf course, tennis courts and a wonderful playground for toddlers!

The condo has been recently updated by the owner (an artist with fabulous style) and is immaculate. She is extremely helpful in answering our questions and is very knowledgeable about the area, giving great advice about the things to see and do during your stay.

The Country Club grounds and amenties are also very well maintained.

Just outside the Lakes Country Club grounds, there are a variety of wonderful restaurants including Mortons, Shermans and The Cork Tree. You are also within walking distance to JW Marriott resort and shopping centers with good grocery.

We recommend this property to all of our friends and relatives as a "home away from home" when visiting the Palm Springs area.

Wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We were at The Lakes last November and really loved it. The property has a very central location surrounded by many wonderful golf courses, restaurants (Morton’s Steak House, The Cork Tree, and Mikada) Ralphs grocery store and a pharmacy. The condominium is really clean and very nicely furnished and has a well-supplied kitchen and nice linens in the bedrooms and bathrooms. We will definitely return the next time we are in Palm Desert.

Car: recommended

This private club sits on 380 lush acres just south of Country Club Drive between Cook Street and Eldorado Drive in Palm Desert with 902 condominium homes. Each home has a unique golf course or lake view. The dominant landscape theme is water: lakes and waterfalls surrounded by green lawns, shade and ornamental trees and accented by desert flowers. The Lakes Country Club is adjacent the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort where you can walk to their on site Starbucks, show the kids the ponds full of pink flamingos and swans, or spend an evening dining in one of their fabulous restaurants - be sure to get to your dinner reservation half an hour early so that you can be taken by boat from inside the hotel lobby through an opening in a magnificent glass wall and out across their lake to the restaurant of your choosing.

The Lakes CC is also adjacent to a shopping plaza with a Ralphs grocery store, a pharmacy, restaurants (including the local favorite - The Cork Tree), shipping services, and many other conveniences.

There are numerous world-class golf courses all within minutes of this convenient location.
