Why Denise Gomez chose California Desert

We fell in love with Palm Desert on our first visit over 15 years ago and vacationed here every year at a local Hotel. We finally decided it was time to own our own piece of the Desert. With the mountain views always in sight and so much to do nearby, once we visited this area up highway 74, we knew Mountainback/Sommerset was where we wanted to be. We continue to try and visit once a month.

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet community close to the mountains.

Excellent! We'd rent it again!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the Palm Springs area 5 times in the past. This was our first time renting this particular condo and our first time staying in Palm Desert proper. Everything was great - we'd rent this place again. Easy owners to deal with, no problem sorting out payment, getting the keys, etc. Unit was clean, well-equipped close to El Paseo shops, Trader Joe's grocery store, Whole Foods, restaurants, services. Area is quiet, well-maintained. There are 4 pools, however they are very cold (2 are unheated in fact), which was fine for our trip as it was extremely hot while we were there this time. Hummingbirds buzzing around, chirping birds, grapefruit trees - just a lovely spot!

Owner's Response: It truly makes me happy that you found our home, the peaceful surroundings and our location an enjoyable one. I do note that only two of the four pools are heated all year and am glad in the end taking the short walk to either the main pool or upper pool was not a huge problem. I look forward to hearing from you for your next vacation!

Beautiful 2 Bed / 2 bath condo in Palm desert

  • 5 of 5

Our week in this condo was fabulous. It was the perfect setting for us, 2 couples. We were within walking distance (2 miles) of wonderful shopping, restaurants, hiking trails - into the mountains. It is the perfect desert setting for any activity you choose to participate in, in the desert. Condo was very well equipped with everything you might need. Great BBQ and sitting area for nighttime relaxation. Pool at your doorstep (very private). Larger pool and spa close by. Superb tennis courts on site also. Wi-Fi excellent, if you need to work. Owners were marvelous, very attentive, reactive and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back !

Lovely condo...

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this condo so much and only wish we could have stayed longer. It is clean and supplied with everything you might need! We enjoy cooking and were amazed how nicely the kitchen was stocked (to such small detail as a salad spinner). We enjoyed the patio gas BBQ and used it several evenings.

This condo is truly a place to relax and enjoy as your "home away from home". We'd like to add how helpful the owner was and how promptly she responded to any of our questions. The various tips and instructions posted about the unit were very helpful. We would definitely rent this condo again!

Owner's Response: Roy and Lorrie, Thank you so much , I do try to keep our kitchen stocked with all the items I would like to use when I'm in the desert, so I am glad you appreciated that feature. Please come back anytime!

Very spacious modern condo

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very clean, modern and spacious. Nice quiet area close to shopping venues. The pools and hot tub were very nice. Great value and organized/efficient owners. Instructions for visitors were very clear and helpful. The unit has a great binder of information on local shopping, attractions, and other advice. WiFi in unit worked perfectly. Highly recommend.

Excellent Value

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Denise for accomodating my crazy schedule. The place was wonderful. Great location and had all the room we needed. Having two larger beds in the second bedroom was a key for our family. The weather was great and the fruit trees were fantastic. Fresh juice everyday.

Great getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one month and were tempted to stay longer. We will be back in the future for sure. Close to all amenities, pools, tennis courts, fruit trees and great neighbors. The place is stocked with all items you would need on a day to day basis. You truly feel at home with the peaceful atmosphere.
