About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Palm Valley Country Club is a real jewel of a complex. It is home to a World Class Club House, the largest in the desert (100,000 sq ft) with 2 restaurants and bar lounge. Don't forget to take advantage of the Friday Night Pasta Night. Made to order pasta dishes, salads and more -$22, all you can eat. The complex is gated with 24 hour patrolling security and is located just 2 miles from the Marriott Desert Springs Hotel and just 6 miles from 'The River' which hosts great restaurants, entertainment and shopping. You are within minutes of the famous desert's 'El Paseo Drive' noted for exquisite shopping and dining. Palm Springs is 14 miles away and has the Thursday Night Street Fair all year. The College of the Desert Street Fair 5 miles away, hosts one also all year, Sat and Sun.

My end unit 1652 sq ft condo (3BR/2BA) is turn key with everything you need except food and beverages. All is constantly updated for added guest comfort. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you need to make any meal such as much needed spices, oils, condiments. Guests provide their own food. For added security and ease, I have installed keyless entry locks and program in a code specific to you and delete codes from other renters before your arrival. No keys!

A four waterfall lake on the 8th green of PVCC Challenger Course is your stunning view and it can be enjoyed from the living room, dining room, kitchen or spacious outdoor patio which has a convection barbecue. Enjoy a cool drink on the patio while taking in the golfers teeing off in front of you.

The Master BR has a king bed, attached bath, 26" flat screen TV/DVD combo and an attached private patio with comfortable furniture and umbrella. The 2nd BR has a queen, attached to a bath and 26" wall mounted flat screen TV/DVD combo. The 3rd BR has two twin beds and new 19" flat screen TV/DVD combo. A queen size elevated aerobed is provided with all bedding for additional guests up to 8 maximum.

The living room is spacious and open to the dining room and kitchen with surrounding bar seating for easy entertainment. Over the LR fireplace is a 40' Sony Big Screen. The fireplace was redone 10/13. Ceiling fans are throughout the home and there is a full size laundry.

Free WIFI access for your laptop.

The nearest pool/jacuzzi is across the street, opposite my garage. Another pool/jacuzzi is 100 yards away. Pool rafts, pool toys are in the garage for your stay's enjoyment, along with 7 bikes w/helmets and locks on site for your enjoyment. Bike two miles to the Marriott, then enjoy a boat ride (this is the Marriott with the lake which comes into the lobby) to a restaurant of your choice. I can highly recommend the lobby sushi bar for sashimi. The lobby is so comfortable with couch seating and many big screen TV's. Very relaxing and a perfect memory! Fisherman's Wharf is also in the Marriott and has great food and daily Happy Hour, 11am-5pm. This is part of the family of restaurants known as Fisherman's Market and Grill. It is one of my favorite places to eat every time I am in the desert, Fred Waring and Town Center in the Trader Joes Center. We also enjoy Shanghai Reds in Indian Wells. Wonderful outside happy hour 4-6pm. Nice breeze, great service and food $5-$8.

Being a teacher of 37 years, now retired as of June 2012, I take much pride in taking care of my home and caring about my renter's needs. I fully manage my property and personally clean my home. I approach this with thinking, if I was the renter, I would expect it to be so clean, equipped, and displayed online accurately. For the last 14 years, I have been gratefully able to donate my condo to many charities: Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer raising monies to walk in now my 13th upcoming 3day in Nov, 2016, now raising over $25K in the last 13 years, Riverside County Foster Kid's Program 5X, Christian Women's Ministries 6X, High School Athletic Programs-Football, Wrestling, High School Band and Drama, High School Special Education Scholarship Fund, Down's Syndrome Association 9X , Autistic Children's Foundation, 2X, 4X, Michelle's Place a Breast Cancer Resource Center In Temecula, and AYSO supporting a past elementary student of mine, Inspirz Kids 2X which supports foster children's after school activities , Toys for Tots 2X, and Pt. Loma of Nazareen University Nursing Program.

Thanks for reading my site.

About Pamela Kerr

Hi, it's so nice to meet you. Thanks for reading my listing. I have owned my home in PVCC since 9/2002 and am very pleased with the complex, security and HOA. I am presently as of June 2012, a retired teacher after teaching 37 years. I live in Temecula which is 65 miles from this home in Palm Desert. I manage and take care of all the cleaning and upkeep of the home. This is important to me as I personally want to know everything there is exceptional for my renters.

Pamela Kerr purchased this condo in 2002

Why Pamela Kerr chose California Desert

Palm Valley is a beautiful place. The landscaping is unbelievable, a real pleasing site and it is all year. After owning for 15 years, I continue to be amazed at the unbelievable upkeep the HOA and PVCC does to keep Palm Valley Country Club at the top of the list of properties desired either as a rental or as a property to buy. I bought my home here as my retirement home for sometime in the future. I chose this location as this home has a beautiful 4 waterfall lake view and the home is large enough to accommodate family and guests. I also bought it because of its location to the pool across the street and another pool 100 yards away.

What makes this condo unique

This home is truly a 'Slice of Heaven on Earth!'.

Need a place to relax? This is the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have enjoyed staying at this property for years! It always feels like coming home! It's also been a great getaway for me & my girlfriends many times over! We really appreciate how clean it is...I mean REALLY clean! To me, it's the most important factor when renting a place. Great location, beautiful surroundings, peaceful & relaxing, and there are many options for things to do. The property has a fabulous location if you want to go out shopping or go out to eat. Plenty of options for things to do nearby! If you just need to relax, the pool & spa are only steps away, which is awesome! My husband likes to simply sit on the back patio &'s a great view! Another important quality is how well we are able to sleep... and the beds are VERY comfortable! We love staying here...always look forward to coming back! Absolutely fabulous place! Enjoy!

Beautiful place, everything and more that I could have ever asked for!!! <3

  • 5 of 5

Pamela was more than accommodating for anything and everything I could have possibly asked for. I ran in to a minor issue, contacted her, and she was lightning fast to remedy it for me! Would definitely still here again multiple times per year if vacation time and money was unlimited. ;) Thanks again!

Relaxing, long weekend away.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with another couple, spent 3 nights and 3 days at this comfortable, well equipped condo. Everything was a breeze from initially booking the condo through checkout. The owner was very helpful and communicated well. She even made suggestions on where to eat and things to do during our stay. Using the key code option for the doors made coming and going so simple. The condo was very cozy and had everything we needed. The pool was a lifesaver since we were there in the summer heat! I have stayed here before and will definitely come again!

Owner's Response: Dayna, I am so glad you could again enjoy my home and I think this is the first time with your husband as the other 2 or 3 times were with Christian Ministries Retreats with all women. It is always a pleasure to share my home with you. I too am glad there is a pool across from my driveway as that is so convenient in the summer heat. Looking forward to working with you again, sincerely, Pamela

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the condo really was Heaven on Earth. The condo was easy to find, and the key code option on the door was awesome. We walked into the unit and were impressed! The condo really does have everything you might expect and feels like home away from home. Everything was very cozy. We also loved the location of the condo being right across the street from the pool. It was so convenient for us - and our 4 year little girl! The only downside to the stay was that the hot tub was not operating as a hot tub, but this had nothing to do with the condo.  We just think it might have been a seasonal thing, and since we are getting into Summer, the Homeowners Association probably shuts it off. But really, the tub in condo unit itself is so big, that you could probably soak in there and be just fine.  There were more than enough towels and blankets, and really - just everything you would need to feel comfortable. There is a grocery store down the street, so if you forget something you can just run down and pick something up. It really did feel like home away from home. We were sad to go home, and are already hoping to plan another trip. We would love to stay there again!!

Owner's Response: I am certainly glad my home was to you also, "A Slice of Heaven on Earth!" It was such a pleasure getting to know you and working with you. You are right about the Jacuzzis. Since there are 46 pools/Jacuzzis in the complex, not all are heated in the summer - May 1-Nov 1. I will add that to my property description. I am certainly glad you and your husband were able to get away for your anniversary and you used Palm Valley Country Club Babysitting Service located in the Clubhouse. It is nice to know that your 4 year old loved it. Thanks for the information. It will be nice to pass that information on to other inquiries. I look forward to working with you in the future. Sincerely, thank you again for your detailed review.

Lovely, carefree stay.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four friends stayed at this condo at the beginning of April for 5 nights. First, it was very easy to find once off the highway and close to basic amenities, like grocery store, coffee shops, etc. The golf resort itself is very well cared for and has a very relaxing atmosphere. If you're not golfing the pool across the street was fantastic, never crowded and a great place to chat with neighbors.

The condo itself was very well equipped and stocked with many essential items. I've stayed at a number of VRBO properties across North America and it is easy to tell which ones are essentially large hotel rooms and which ones are proper home-type properties. This one certainly made you feel at home. While we mostly ate out while we were there, the kitchen was stocked with almost anything you would need, which I feel is a key to a great stay... it certainly allowed us to make great eggs benedict and omelettes each morning. The mattresses and bedding were comfortable and welcoming at the end of each day.

The owner (Pamela) was a charm to communicate with and spared no expense/time insuring we were aware of how to operate everything, where things were and quickly addressed any concerns we had (even during our short visit). Next time I'm in the area this will certainly be the place at the top of my list.

Wonderful stay in Palm Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The view of the eigth hole with it's three waterfalls is terrific. Having the pool and spa right across the street was very handy for us. The home was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We had the opportunity to have lunch with Pamela and learned how important that it is for her that her guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. We are planning to stay with her again.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased with being able to share my home with such a wonderful couple. I loved that we were able to meet for lunch to get to know each other better personally, other than just thru emails or phone calls. Looking forward to your March 2016 stay and hope we can get together again. Thank you so much for taking such great care of my home. The location is a "Slice of Heaven on Earth"!

My property does not include golf, tennis or fitness center memberships. PVCC has two private golf courses belonging to American Golf Association. Reciprocal golf priviledges are allowed depending on the level of your membership. Even though PVCC is a private golf resort, renters can golf on PVCC courses on Mondays when reserving through Standby Golf. I do not own a fitness/tennis membership as even if owned, it still requires guests to pay a fee of $18 per day to use the facilities. AOS Fitness is 2 miles away and has monthly memberships for $9.00, no contract. I recommend this option. However, if you purchase a spa service at Palm Valley CC, fitness center and all spa facilities can be used with no charge for the same day.
