Desert Skies is a mid-century gem in a spectacular location. The complex was built in the 1950's and has a fabulous Hollywood feel. With only 38 units, it is a quiet place. In the middle of the complex is a large courtyard with two swimming pools (one of which is heated), a hot tub, and barbecue grill, with lush and colorful desert landscaping. As far as Palm Springs, Desert Skies has one of the best locations--it's in wind-protected South Palm Springs, with hiking and gorgeous homes surrounding it, and very close to downtown.
This second floor, end unit condo was totally renovated in 2011 with style and quality. It offers all of the amenities you would expect--fully-stocked kitchen, fresh linens, two new TVs, and great new furniture including a fabulous bed. Everything, from the artwork to the couch, was selected for its quality but also for the style--great care was put into furnishing this condo with the best mid-century style.
Transport yourself back into the glamorous 50's at this amazing desert retreat.

We live in Portland, Oregon, and have been visiting Palm Springs for years. Jacob is a contractor specializing in whole-house renovations, and Tim is a real estate agent. We enjoy riding our bikes, hiking, running, and eating out at all kinds of restaurants.
After visiting Palm Springs multiple times, we determined that Desert Skies was our ultimate future vacation home. It has the best location--in a great neighborhood with amazing homes and good hiking, and close to downtown. We also love the architecture and style of the building. The landscaping is outstanding--a collection of great desert plants in a manicured design.
Our favorite things to do include:
- Going for hikes in the mountains
- Walking around the neighborhood looking at cool homes
- Swimming in the pool and lounging in the hot tub
- Walking to El Mirasol, our favorite Mexican restaurant
- RELAXING--that's what Palm Springs is all about!
