We are from the Northwest and we wanted a place to escape to during winter weather.
Nancy Ranallo purchased this condo in 2013
Conveniently located. It is close to downtown Palm Springs and Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta and Indian Wells.
Easy access to the golf courses. 2 lighted tennis courts for your use and 6 Pools in the complex. There is no need to reserve the tennis courts. It is first come first basis. It is usually always open for your use.
Great place to stay! Fully furnished house and kitchen. mountain shadows is an old school Palm springs complex: lots of space, surrounded by a golf course with lots of swimming pools.
We stayed here during the month of February and had perfect weather the whole month! Mountain Shadows is in a great location - close to bike trails, hiking trails, and golf courses. We biked to WalMart, Target, Trader Joes, or Starbucks everyday as they are very close and we could even bike downtown in about 25 minutes. There are tennis courts and 5 heated pools (we enjoyed them, especially in the afternoon, when all the other "snowbirds" were there too). It is a gated community that is beautifully kept with flowers and green grass and lemon and grapefruit trees - we ate grapefruit everyday!
The condo was perfect in size for us with simple uncluttered decor and nice personal touches. It was very clean with a light colored carpet, so we removed our shoes everytime we entered. The kitchen was well-equipped with new appliances and we had many meals there. It also has a fullsized washer and dryer. The patio has a table with 4 chairs and a grill, but it is covered so we used it more for storage rather than for eating. We enjoyed the 3 huge cable TVs and even watched some movies the weekend the kids visited.
Nancy is so helpful and so easy to work with. We asked if it was possible to get a TV in the second bedroom and a crockpot in the kitchen and she did that for us. She is a gem!!
We have already signed up for next year!
*Great location. Nice walk/bike ride to Starbuck's, Walmart, Target, a couple of restaurants, mini golf/go-karts, etc. Dedicated bike paths, SUPERB hiking spot and public golf course just outside of the complex too. Right off of Rt. 111 so downtown, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage all easily accessible.
*Condo itself is big, updated, clean. My wife is picky and she liked it. Very functional decor and space. TVs are huge too. Great having 2.1 baths.
*Condo development is perfect. A little quiet for our family with small children but very well maintained. We used the tennis courts every day without a problem and used the heated main pool just steps from the condo. Note that the sun goes behind the mountain at 4pm this time of year. Seems like the best pool hours were 11am - 4pm.
*Nancy is VERY responsive. She was always accessible over the phone and email. She was quick to offer tips, recommendations, other help. We've rented via VRBO ~7 times and she was definitely one of the best owners so far.
*Condo doesn't have great dedicated outdoor space. There is a lanai-like patio in back but it's covered and facing the parking lot. We used it for storage of bikes, toys, wet bathing suits, etc.
*Condo is immediately in the landing flight path of what must be PSP's main runway. A few flights/hour landed throughout the day. I can imagine that crotchety folks would be turned off. It didn't bother us at all...in fact, the kids loved trying to ID different types of planes.
*Tough to find other families with young kids in the immediate area at this time of year. Also, from 2pm-4pm during this time of year the main pool becomes an unofficial retiree/snowbird meeting spot. Not too much of a problem because everyone is really friendly. I even found a tennis partner!
We stayed here all of Christmas week, and found it to be a great location and a lovely "Home away from home" over the holiday week. Our son and family and their 3 yr old joined us there, and it was really good for the energetic child who loves swimming pools and could be very safe in the quiet streets and peaceful neighborhood. The mail swimming pool is heated in December and only a few others used it. Perfect! Appreciated the many "necessary" items in the kitchen - and major grocery stores nearby. The hosts even had candles in every room to make it seem homey. I recommend.
Went with friends for a spring get away. We basically had the whole Mountain Shadows Complex to ourselves. The complex is beautiful and quiet and this condo is amazing. Everything in the unit is brand new. The kitchen was well stocked with every kind of appliance you could need. There is a huge TV in the living room with full cable, including premium channels. The pools are wonderful and well maintained. Pool by unit was all ours and just around the corner from the condo. Honestly the best deal in Palm Springs. We will be back.
When my family and I arrived at this very clean and newly remodeled condo in Cathedral City/Palm Springs, we were thrilled. It is very well appointed with new furnishings and all of the amenities that make a vacation relaxing with the conveniences of home. There are 6 pools on the property and two of them are within 500 feet or less from the door of the condo. Downtown Palm Springs is less than a 10 minute car ride. Trader Joe's is just a few blocks away. Rancho Mirage is just a 10 minute car ride away. The location of the condo couldn't be better! All in all our stay was very much to our liking. We are excited to get back to Palm Springs this winter and we will stay here again.
