Palm Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Nicely updated two bedroom, two bath single level Sandpiper condominium designed by famed mid-century architect William Krisel. Located on El Paseo in Palm Desert -- the "Rodeo Drive of the Desert" -- the unit has lovely mountain, pool, and palm tree views and is located on a dead-end street away from traffic and noise. Two private patios (one with gas barbecue) and the delightful entryway atrium combine with beautiful exterior landscaping for seamless indoor and outdoor living. A pleasing mixture of contemporary and quality vintage furniture is found throughout the unit.

In 2014, the unit's interior was completely repainted, carpet was replaced, and new window treatments installed. The bathrooms received new tile flooring, glass countertops, and tile showers, and new tile was installed in the kitchen and atrium, in 2015.

Sandpiper is an architecturally significant, low-density development in the mid-century style. Our unit, like most of the others, features high ceilings, celestory windows, and a comfortable, open floor plan. Each pool is shared by only 16 units and is surrounded by wide expanses of grass and lush landscaping (including mature grapefruit and lemon trees). Our particular pool area features a shady cabana, gas barbecue, putting green, shuffleboard area, and plenty of patio and pool furniture. The inviting pool is kept at a warm 85 degrees year round.

Directly across from the unit's private driveway are multiple retail establishments and restaurants, including Rite-Aid and Starbucks. Several grocery stores are nearby, and the famed, upscale El Paseo shopping and dining district is just a short walk away. Hiking trails, public tennis courts, Westfield's Palm Desert Mall, the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert, and Target are also within walking distance. Other attractions, including numerous golf courses, the Living Desert, the River shopping complex, McCallum Theater, Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and Sunnylands estate are within 10 minutes drive.

The unit is easily accessible, with three unassigned parking spaces directly in front of the main entrance, and a reserved covered space in the nearby carport. A public bus stop is within walking distance on Highway 111.

Everything you need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay is available: plenty of linens, full laundry facilities, ample newer cookware and dishware, barbecue, cable television, free long distance phone throughout the U.S. and Canada, and wireless Internet access.

The City of Palm Desert's short-term rental ordinance applies to stays in this unit of less than 28 days (Permit No. 41150). Accordingly, for rentals to which the ordinance applies, nine percent tax will be added to the rental amount and the cleaning fee. Special rates may apply during certain peak periods.

About Ky Fullerton

We are a couple with three young children from Portland, Oregon. Our families have enjoyed coming to the Desert for many years. We love the relaxed, casual atmosphere, numerous attractions and activities, and great year-round weather that the area has to offer.

Why Ky Fullerton chose California Desert

Sandpiper is the perfect Desert location. There is something for everyone within walking distance of our unit, and it's a short drive to just about anywhere in the Coachella Valley. Living in an architecturally significant development is another plus. Guests and owners alike, and especially families with small children like ours, enjoy Sandpiper's low density, wide open greenspaces, beautiful trees and landscaping, and sparkling pools.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at Sandpiper and we appreciated your updates. We think it's the nicest unit we've stayed in at Sandpiper. Let us know your plans for next year.

Thanks again.

We enjoyed Sandpiper!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is really comfortable and well maintained. Nice upgrades each time we stay here and it has a very cool mid century vibe. It is close to Palm Springs and in the heart of Palm Desert. The owners really care that you have a nice stay and they are very responsive!

A Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful Sandpiper. It is bright and sunny, with beautiful morning sunrises from the living room and dining room. Both these rooms have floor to ceiling glass windows and sliding glass doors. There is a private, gated entryway patio, 2 more patios off the bedrooms and a front garden area with a BBQ. It has beautiful views from every window, including the nearby mountains. There is a swimming pool, putting green and shuffleboard for just this circle of condominiums. The owners have recently painted, installed new bathrooms tiles, new carpeting and window coverings. It is walking distance to many restaurants, El Paseo shops and a large mall. The owners are great to work with and respond quickly to answer questions. We will be back again soon. Thank you for the very enjoyable vacation in your home!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a 4 day golf trip. Condo was clean and spacious, and was central to all of the courses we wanted to play. Condo complex had a pool just outside our unit which was great for an evening dip after a hot day of golfing.

Terrific spot in great location

  • 5 of 5

Sandpiper sits in the most ideal renting location in Palm Desert. Literally dozens of superb restaurants, every store of every kind anyone could want, and the fabulolous El Paseo with its top scale food and shops are literally WALKING distance from this spot. You'd never know it as it is serene, very well kept, absolute great night's sleep, and very easy in and out.

The unit has recently been upgraded and is awash in great light. A 20-30 wall of glass doors topped by clerestories with high windows above on the opposing wall all surrounded by nice, crisp, clean white walls make the living room spectacular. A nice dining set up as well as a high-chaired breakfast bench adjoin a functional kitchen with a small wet bar. Two king beds which offered very comfortable sleep and updated tiled glass door showers in the two comfortable and spacious baths. Excellent parking. The owner couldn't have been more helpful all the way through and without a doubt this is no brainer for anyone wanting to rent in Palm Desert. Would recommend it to anyone. PS - there are over 25 movie screens within two miles of this spot. We saw over 15 movies in the 10 days we were there.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo in November with our 3 young kids. It was a well situated condo in proximity to many family and kids activities. The condo itself was updated and well maintained. It has a very well equipped kitchen with many amenities included. Would recommend to others.
