This unique condo is located in the historic Racquet Club of the Garden Villas which was designed by the famed mid-century architect, William F. Cody. The most famous of the film stars and celebrities gathered here while in Palm Springs. This lovely 600 square foot condo was completely re- done from floor to ceiling with all new appliances and furnishing in August of 2012.
It is in a gated community of 37 units and located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs with its excellent restaurants and trendy shops.
This unit sleeps four. In the bedroom there is a queen size bed and in the living room there is a leather sofa that pulls out and makes into a very comfortably queen size bed. For atmosphere and on cooler evening enjoy the wood burning fireplace. All linens are provided.
Dine outdoors on your own very private patio under a canopy of a lovely tree.
The post and beam architecture with the floor to ceiling glass walls are William F. Cody signature look inviting the inside out and the outside in which makes the unit feel much more spacious.
The grounds designed by Phil Shipley are beautiful with trees everywhere, gardens and a soothing a wandering stream. The view of the San Jacinto Mountains is spectacular and the extra-large swimming pool and spa are very special.
It has a new stainless steel kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, bowls, blender, ice maker and an outdoor BBQ for your cooking and meal preparation convenience. There is also a private washer and dryer for your convenience.

My wife and I who have been married for 44 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired five years ago, we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 sq, ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos the unit is extensively decorated with the works of several well know artists. Before starting the printing studio and the art gallery, we lived in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German born. She speaks German, English and French.
We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.
For many years we lived at the beach and bought a unit in the Garden Viillas to come on the weekends when the weather was not so nice on the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here five years ago.
In our opinion the Garden Villas of the Racquet Club is the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. In the Garden Villas there are only 37 units. It is a gated community and this historical place has magnificant grounds, an extra large pool with a fountain and a spa.
