This beautifully Tommy Bahama decorated upper level condo has 2 large master suites (1 king, 1 Queen) both with full en-suites plus a half bath. Furnished with beautiful furnishings top to bottom and has breathtaking views of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains. This condo is located in a safe gated community with waterfalls around every corner, lush and mature landscaping, meandering pathways for relaxing strolls, work out room, tennis courts, quiet streets, and quiet people. No party kids here – only happy people who want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. There are 8 pools. Seriously – 8 pools AND 9 Jacuzzis.

This home has a bright and open atmosphere, with gorgeous designer touches. The main living area has a high vaulted ceiling, Flat Screen TV, DVD and stereo. The kitchen's layout is functional and practical, and comes with everything you need to prepare and serve a gourmet meal. Pots, pans, bake ware, dishes, glassware, plastic ware (for the pools), and all utensils and small appliances, everything you need. The kitchen also features a sunny eat-in area with seating for two, great for enjoying your morning coffee, or read the paper outside on the front landing which is 8' x 6' and seats two. The kitchen is open to the dining area and living area so you may visit with your guests while fixing drinks or snacks. The incredible designer dining room table seats four. The comfortably furnished living area is brightened by a huge sliding door that leads to a huge 230 sq. ft. balcony that overlooks the lush landscaping and a beautiful large water fountain. The deck features a BBQ and a comfortable outdoor dinning set for four.

Located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs and Cathedral City, be sure to visit Palm Springs' open-air market on Palm Canyon Dr. every Thursday evening. A block to the north is a beautiful 9-hole executive golf course and a block in the other direction is the famous 'The Parker' - hotel where the stars come to play in the desert. Speaking of golf..... In fact Palm Springs and area have over 125 Golf Courses!!! If Golf isn’t your thing well the valley has so much more to offer. A half hour drive will take you to Cabazon at the gigantic Outlet Mall, with over a hundred designer stores and a nearby casino. 18 minutes away in Palm Desert is the Living Desert Zoo and the shops at El Paseo known as the Rodeo Drive of the desert. A short 7.5 mile drive will bring you to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, with the world’s largest rotating tram cars, the tram will take you to the mountain station at an elevation of 8,516 feet. 'It's like taking a trip from Mexico to Alaska in just minutes'! There is so much to see and do in the Coachella Valley from Salton Sea to Joshua Tree National Park the beauty is endless, art, culture, fine dinning and entertainment........ But most of all lets not forget the sunshine and warmth! For the more adventurous early morning risers/road-trippers... go for a day trip to the San Diego Zoo just 2.5 hours away or arrive at Disneyland in a mere 1 hour 50 minutes.

For the greatest location, and to enjoy comfort and style, make this resort condo your Palm Springs vacation destination.

About Rod Retelback

This condo was purchased as a winter retirement home...... but until that day arrives we want others to enjoy this beautiful desert oasis!

Rod Retelback purchased this villa in 2012

Why Rod Retelback chose Palm Springs

We chose this property because of the lushness of the grounds the beautiful mountain views, the proximity to the Airport and the location (South Palm Springs...... no wind)!

What makes this villa unique

The minute we walked into this home, we felt at home and hopefully so will everyone else. The serenity and beauty of the grounds and views are truly breathtaking.

lovely condo

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Rod's condo for three days and two nights with a couple of friends (ages 22-25) The condo is super spacious and I personally liked the decor. The pictures definitely do not do it justice. It was clean and well-equipped for a short or long stay, we had everything we needed. The living room was our favorite place to lounge around and watch tv. Also, the location is really ideal, there are many shopping plazas just down the street. Rod was super responsive to my questions prior to our arrival and we had no trouble getting in with his descriptive directions. I definitely will be renting Rod's condo for my future stay in Palm Springs!

Great Stay in Palm Springs Condo

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this condo for three nights with my boyfriend and his two brothers. It was in a great, central location in Palm Springs, had very nice grounds, and was a large, comfortable, well appointed unit. The owners were extremely responsive and it was very easy to secure the rental. There is a pool steps from the condo with a great hot tub and there were beautiful trees and plants all around. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation rental, especially one so reasonably priced for what we received. We are recommending it to a number of our friends!

Great place in need of a new cleaning service which has already been taken care of. Well equipped, two master suites modern flat screen with some upgraded channels. This is an upper unit which was good for us but some seniors may not want the stairs.

great condo

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Rods codo for 2 months and absolutely loved it. Nicely furnished, great location, and quiet. Had a couple small problems that were handled quickly by Rod. I would recommend to a friend. If you like great food, golf, hiking, and many other activities Palm Springs is a great fall and winter location. Thanks for a great vacation Rod. We may be back next fall. Don and Peg

Excellent condo, excellent owner, excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
We're a family of 5 from Seattle. Kids aged 11, 9, and 9

The Condo

I laughed out loud when we first walked in to the condo. My wife and I have traveled widely, across 4 continents, and I've seen a lot of rental properties in my time. All are decorated, of course, but usually with little enthusiasm (or investment). Not this place. This place looks like something you'll see in the furniture section of the Tommy Bahama web site. Not quite as grand, of course - it's only a two bedroom condo, after all. But from the furniture to the artwork to the palm tree candle holders and the colored martini glasses, this place felt like the lobby of a plush Caribbean hotel.

Even our kids noticed the decor, and got a big kick out of it. Especially the pineapple dining table and chairs, which they commented on nearly every night.

Other condo attributes:

- New major appliances in the kitchen were a pleasure to use. A refrigerator with an in-door ice water dispenser is always a hit with our kids.

- Enormous back deck, with plush chairs, table, and gas BBQ. Dad grilled every dinner we had at home out on that back deck while enjoying the soothing sound of the large fountain located among the palm trees immediately behind the deck. And the spectacular view of the nearby mountains.

- Excellent wireless internet service. We had 4 devices pounding on that router full time (including streaming internet radio) without a hiccup.

- And the constant stream of hungry humming and other birds eating from the many feeders that the next-door neighbors hang on their deck. The neighbors are retired teachers (from Seattle too), and they live in their unit - at least in the "winter". FYI they're very nice folks, and are a good source of local knowledge.

The complex itself is way above average for a place like this. Super-tidy grounds are constantly serviced. Pool areas are spotless. Our live-in neighbors commented that they had always been pleased with the work of the grounds crew.

There are two pools within 50 yards of this condo - one "heated", one not. Our kids went back and forth on which one they preferred, depending on the day's temperature.

The Owners

The owners are a pleasure to do business with. They obviously care about repeat business, as they have invested in making their place better than most. Their efforts worked in our case. We hope to go back next year.

Location is also great. 1 mile to Trader Joe's!

Great place. Don't hesitate to book it.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Oasis resort a few times in the past couple years but have always used the timeshare units. We love the resort due to its proximity to downtown, and beautiful grounds and pools. This year we decided to rent a vacation property instead of use the timeshare and we were very impressed. The room has a great layout with the two bedrooms on opposite sides of the unit. The Kitchen was full of everything we needed on our stay (saran wrap, tin foil, olive oil, tons of glass and plastic cups, etc.) The deck was very spacious, and having the cushioned patio furniture really made a big difference as we spent a lot of time sitting out there. We would not hesitate to stay at this unit again.
