Overview

Palm Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

A perfect setting awaits you here at Palm Valley Country Club in my quaint golf retreat, located steps from the pool and spa and on the gorgeous 17th hole of the Championship course. Why spend more for space when you'll be spending the majority of your time enjoying the amenities?

If one bedroom is all you need, then this is your next vacation rental. Tastefully decorated with an 'island' theme, both the master suite and the den overlook the golf course with comfortable patios just outside each slider. Additional patio space is available outside the kitchen 'pass through'.

As a former NFL and CFL athlete, I know the sound of a good bargain, and this is it! Pets are welcome within reason for an additional security deposit, but please, no smokers.

The most beautiful time of year for sun lovers is still available. Mid April is a great tiime to work on the tan and take a dip. Please, check the calendar for availability. Your security deposit and signed contract will guarantee your fantastic vacation spot here in the Southern California desert. Don't hesitate to call either number on the site for details about the unit or clarification of any of the amenities.

This rare one-bedroom at Palm Valley has both the den and the Master with golf course frontage with their own sliders. Most of the others have the sleeping quarters on the street side of the unit. A prime location is only steps from the pool and has is a single story, so no footsteps above you.

The kitchen is well stocked (tupperware, crock pots, etc) for those who choose to take advantage of a fully furnished condo and save a few dollars by eating in!

I've purposely kept rates at or below my competition and will continue to do so! Additionally, new Holiday Season rates have been established for October through December! Please do not hesitate to reward yourself with a trip out of the torrid winter weather. It will be well worth the investment.

I look forward to developing much repeat business and establishing relationships with my vacationers, not simply providing a place to lay their heads.

Round of golf promotion is for two players at course of owners' choice. Time and day based on availability. Expires 5/23/2015.

About Brian and Penny

I was fortunate to have played professional football for a living before settling into my life in public education. I currently serve as APEX and OCS Director and Head Golf Coach at the newest school in the valley, Shadow Hills High School. My wife Penny works with Special Education students in the same district. Our twins, Nicholas and Shianne will be celebrating their Sixth birthday on February 2nd of 2015! Amazing how time flies!!

Brian and Penny purchased this condo in 2006

Why Brian and Penny chose Palm Desert

We had purchased this unit with the sole intent to use it as a vacation rental. It's unique floor plan, along with its' centralized location in Palm Desert give it appeal. The location on the course is perfect as it is close to the pool and located on the 17th tee box of the Championship course allowing for sleeping in with no distractions until well after 9:00am! The number of repeat renters continues to grow as they understand the units' charm!

What makes this condo unique

You'll be greeted first hand by either Penny, myself, or both. I believe in this web site and removing the middleman. We are full time residents of the Coachella Valley and live only minutes away so as to attend to all of your needs. The condo is situated well away from the Railroad noise others receive here. It's central location in the valley allow ease of access to more than 140 golf courses! Our 22 years of residing here in the valley help us to guide you to the best of the desert .. can't beat it!

Wonderful Property - Will Stay Here Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time staying at this property and we just loved it. We have stayed at several other condo's in Palm Desert and now enjoy this one the most. A few highlights:

* The extra bathroom is perfect - most 1 bedrooms only have 1 bath

* Brian greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a nice walk-through. This was a pleasant first for us, as most places you just arrive and the owner is not in town.

* This place has an indoor garage which is a huge plus for keeping your call cooler during the hot days.

* I counted - the pool is 24 steps away from the patio and we pretty much had it to ourselves. There are pools all over the place, so you could always venture out if you want.

* The back patio is at the 17th tee-off. This was one of the highlights we really enjoyed. It's a par 3, 147 yards and mostly over water. It was entertaining to see golfers hitting over the water!!

* Two nice bicycles in the garage to ride around the area - nice touch!

* The bedroom patio also looks out over the fairway - just loved all the beautiful green on the course.

* The place is very well stocked. We found everything we needed in regards to kitchen prep, towels, pool towels, etc. etc.

* A short drive to El Paseo which has some nice restaurants. You must try Pacifica Seafood and there amazing Vodka bar. They also have 1/2 off wine bottles on Tuesday's. Great place !!

* The place is very peaceful and quiet. Sure, you have the golfers coming through during the day, but they are pretty quiet and you hardly know they are there.

That's about it. Nothing we didn't like and again, Brian was a pleasure to work with from when we made reservations through our checkout. He lives nearby in the area, which would be handy if any issues came up.

Great condo with par 3 entertainment

  • 5 of 5

We're fortunate to have found this condo due to a cancellation. We planned a last minute trip to Palm Desert and got lucky, we met Brian and his personality plus 5 year old daughter upon our arrival and everything just got better. You get the added bonus of sitting in very comfortable patio chairs and watching #17 tee box par 3 carry over water to green. Kitchen is well stocked, King size bed no complaints, a weber BBQ, two cruiser and good neighbors. What more? Our 11 year old Jack Russell "Bella" loved it.

arriving just after Christmas day at Brian's place was a gift......

In all of the VRBO places we've stayed, never have we meet the owner.

Brian met us, stopped by with a new TV and bikes (great way to see the

neighborhood community). So quiet, NO SNOW and a wonderful jacuzzi

just steps away. Thanks for restaurant & grocery store suggestions.

The green grass of the 17th hole!

  • 5 of 5

Being from San Francisco, it was wonderful to be on vacation and look out from both my bedroom and living room windows onto the calming green grass of the lovely golf course. The accommodations were very comfortable. Brian was very punctual and wonderful to meet. I hope to stay at Brian's place in the future. All in all a perfect visit.

Love this place!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo. We love the condo, location and the area. It is close to restuarants, grocery store and drug store. The owner is very personable and helpful. Our deposit was sent back to us before we even had time to think about it! This year he had bikes for us to ride and indeed we did use them. My husband plays tennis and loves the easy access to the courts as well as the friendly staff at the facility. This condo the location and the owner will not disappoint.
