It has been layed out to accommodate six adults very comfortably with a Cal King Master Suite, Queen 2nd Bedroom, and Queen pull out sofa in the den that is upgraded with a Lazy-Boy Sleep Comfort Air/Spring mattress.

About John Grimes

As a California native we have enjoyed Palm Desert for golf, tennis, shopping and the amazing weather for a number of years. Now living in Colorado we get there as often as we can and want others to enjoy our awesome getaway when we cannot be there. If there is a date you want, please ask as some of them are for our stay and we can sometimes move them to accomodate a renter.

John Grimes purchased this condo in 2000

Why John Grimes chose California Desert

The Palm Desert Resort is a beautiful venue easily accessed from Washington and the I-10 freeway. The golf course is enough of a challenge to keep it fun but can be enjoyed by players of all levels. The tennis courts are available to all guests and it is the host to a number of desert events. With a very nice restaurant, bar, and patio, the club house is a great place to relax after a round of either tennis or golf.

What makes this condo unique

My condo has been referred to by our property management company as, "the best unit in the best location!" As the largest unit in the Palm Desert Resort it also sits at the very end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Situated at the turn from the 2nd Green to the 3rd Tee Box, every room looks out to the golf course. The Master Bedroom, Living Room, and Patio enjoy unobstructed views to the green for a fantastic morning or comfortable afternoon shade. With wonderful, fun, neighbors and a pool/jacuzzi just three houses down it offers everything we have ever wanted of a place in the desert.

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo for the last two years and are scheduled for another year. It is very comfortable, well planned, and has all that you want to make it your home away from home. John is helpful and easily reached if necessary. The golf course location allows for interesting golfer-watching and the patio shines with the morning sun and cools for an afternoon and evening outside. We'd recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with another couple rented this home for 3 nights. The house was perfect for our long weekend. We enjoyed the spacious living room, beautiful kitchen, and outdoor patio. We grilled two nights and went out to dinner the other. It was fun to watch the golfers right outside our window. The men would practice their chipping and putting in the evenings after the other golfers cleared the course and the women enjoyed lounging by the pool. There are so many pools in this complex! One on every major street.

John, the owner, was very easy to work with. We hope to rent this house again next year.

BETTER IN PERSON

  • 5 of 5

WE STAYED AT THIS CONDO LAST WK (6-20-11) FOR A FAMILY REUNION. OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS RENTED OTHER PROPERTIES IN THE COMPLEX. THIS ONE WAS THE MOST SPACIOUS AND UNCLUTTERED OF THEM ALL. BEAUTIFUL BAMBOO FLOORING AND TILE....ALL YOU COULD EVER NEED IN THE KITCHEN FOR ENTERTAINING. THE ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN 20 TO 30 DEGREES COOLER OUTSIDE. MAYBE WINTER WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER TIME TO GO. IT BEATS MINNESOTA (OUR HOME) MOST OF THE YR. SO WON'T COMPLAIN. GREAT POOL RIGHT DOWN THE STREET AND FUN TO WATCH GOLFERS ON THE 2ND GREEN. GOLFED EARLY AM THIS TIME OF YEAR AND WAS FUN CHALLANGING COURSE. HOPE TO COME BACK AGAIN SOMETIME. THANKS FOR PROVIDING GREAT RENTAL FOR OUR VACATION!!!!
