About JR

We purchased this condo as a vacation rental property. We are Californian couple who love the Palm Springs area and love the mid-century architecture in Palm Springs.

JR purchased this condo in 2016

Why JR chose Palm Springs

The location of Desert Skies is excellent. The complex is beautiful & historical. South Palm Canyon is one of the most desirable, wind free areas of Palm Springs. Quiet, safe, intimate 38 units. You're less than 5 minutes to the bustling downtown area shops, restaurants, and museums. You're only 20 minutes away from Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Desert Hot Springs and La Quinta. The gorgeous San Jacinto Mountains and hiking trails are a walking distance from the condo.

What makes this condo unique

Biking, jogging, horseback riding, rides on the tramway, Villagefest (street fair) Thursday nights, museums, Joshua tree National Park (hiking & rock climbing). Excellent weather during the Winter with reliably sunny days throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eveything possible to make this an "upscale" place has been done. The decor is especially attractive and very professional. The quality of the furnishings is tops. The bed is exceptionally comfortable. We really appreciate having the computer.

This was a great place to spend two months. The location is outstanding. Right on Indian Canyons North Golf Course. Tucked right up against the mountains, so rarely any wind. Very close to downtown (30 minute walk). Perfect for biking with many city trails at your disposal. Close to Palm Canyon hiking trail. The unit itself is immaculate, well maintained and with everything you need to cook in. Great pools and hot tub on site. Very quiet. I wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month long vacation at Desert Skies and would definitely return if the opportunity presented itself again!

The Desert Skies Condo information binder was a welcoming feature to our stay, giving needed contact information, location of condo amenities, as well as, an interesting historical page on the original features of the "mid century condo". We appreciated the big screen TV, the laptop computer and the historical books relating to Palm Springs and the surrounding area. The condo is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and bed. The condo is well supplied with dishes and utensils, as well as, linen and towels. The pool area was a featured attraction providing an opportunity to relax in the sun, take a refreshing swim or a chance to relax in the shade while reading. Condo neighbors became instant friends and many of us enjoyed the Happy Hour gatherings at the end of the day. The condo complex was within easy driving distance to grocery stores, downtown Palm Springs shopping and restaurants. The owners were most accommodating, friendly and easy to contact.

Wonderful winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for the month of march and it was perfect for my needs. The condo is nicely renovated and the owners have kept it well supplied with dishes, cookware, cleaners, storage containers, etc. The condo is centrally located close to downtown and I found a terrific gym less than a mile away. The grounds were well kept, the pools were wonderful and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful.

Great condo in a tidy, very well maintained building. The condo was well stocked - extra paper towels, ziplock bags, nice plastic cups for drinks by the pool, 3 pool towels, plenty of bath towels, etc. Everything in the kitchen we needed to cook in the condo and grill by the pool. The owner also provided cold, bottled water in the fridge, as the "cold" tap water was actually hot on days when the outside temp was 115 degrees. That was a nice touch, as we would never have anticipated this issue. We'll definitely stay in Mercedes' Desert Skies condo again!
