About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

The pictures describe it best. The most amazing parts of our condo are the views and the quiet location. Our condo has 3 sliding doors that open to a large south facing patio. The patio is on the golf course with gorgeous lake views and panoramic mountain views. If you look at the satellite view on the map you can see what a beautiful and green community it is. Our desert home offers 2 master suites separated by a large great room that has a full kitchen, couches, TV, Stereo etc.. We love the friendly resort and enjoy the manicured grounds that are perfect for walking and biking. We immediately felt welcomed into the clubhouse and social activities. Two of the 22 pools and hot tubs are just a few condos away in either direction. We love sitting out on our large patio watching the golfers tee off, ducks swimming, Hummingbirds visiting the flowers, and the palm trees reflecting onto the water. We fill our days with; golf, tennis, shopping, hiking, and swimming. Email

About Cory

We live in Canada and are hoping to be Snowbirds someday. We have been visiting the Palm Springs area for many years and recently purchased this property as a future retirement home. I am a teacher and my husband is an electrician with his own company. We will be renting our condo out for 6 years or so, until we are ready to retire. We love traveling around the world but feel at home when we are in the warm desert

Cory purchased this condo in 2010

Why Cory chose Palm Desert

Once we chose the Palm Springs/ Palm Desert area we narrowed down our search to our favorite gated community which is the Palm Desert Resort. We like this community best because it is well located in the heart of the gated resort area. The entrance is beautiful as well as the grounds. It is a lovely place to walk around surrounded by trees and waterfalls and flowers. It has a reasonably priced Championship golf course and amazing tennis facilities. The clubhouse is fantastic with all sorts of social activities happening and everyone is very friendly. It is close to shopping and entertainment including many restaurants, malls, outlets, Walmart and Costco. After deciding that Palm Desert Resort was our favorite resort we waited for a condo on the water. When our listing came up we bought it immediately as the view couldn't be nicer.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is across the street from one of the 22 pool and spa areas and it faces south onto the 14th hole with a stunning water and mountain view. It is the most popular floor plan as both bedrooms are huge with cathedral ceilings, massive walk-in closets and storage areas, a sliding door to the patio, and a bathroom beside them. The bedrooms are separated with a great room consisting of a full kitchen, eating island, table and living room. This area also has a sliding door to the large patio beside the lake. It has a 2 car attached carport.

Tennis anyone!?!? A fantastic desert getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A great condo with terrific south facing views! The condo itself has a very nice floorplan, is well appointed with all the comforts of home plus it's very clean. The owners (Cory & Neal) are easy to deal with. They are prompt to respond to any questions you might have during your stay! Try the Palm Desert Tennis Camp which is located within the resort itself. The staff at the tennis facility are second to none plus the people you meet at the tennis mixer are super friendly! Wish I could have stayed longer. Oh almost forgot the salt water pool and Jacuzzi are a few short steps away from this condo. Thanks again to the hosts/owners (Cory & Neal)... I can't wait to get back!!!

Everything we were looking for in a desert getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is in great shape and tastefully furnished and decorated. Both bedrooms were very large, each with a bathroom. The kitchen overlooked the spacious dining/living room area so you could check on dinner without missing out on the conversation. The patio was perfect for breakfast with an awesome view, just as advertised in the photos. Internet work very well and free long distance on the land line was a nice perk. The resort staff at the gate were friendly and efficient and the hosts Cory and Neal were happy to take care of every request we had, even providing direction to local shops and best routes to various site seeing locations. The golf course and the grassy walking paths are very well maintained and the pools, hot tubs and pool areas are very clean. The kitchen was well stocked for preparing and serving your own meals, and there is also lots of grocery stores and dining out options just minutes away by car. Great overall location and a nice place to call home for an extended stay.

A Comfortable & Scenic Place to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at this condo for several years in a row now and we always enjoy our time there. Cory and Neal are continually upgrading things and each year we look forward to seeing what changes have been made. They are easy to deal with and provide all the information you need to find and access the unit on arrival. Everything in the unit is just as it is described in the listing. Their pride of ownership is evident. The unit is clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need to settle in quickly and start enjoying your vacation. The floor plan is perfect for two couples to share and still have plenty of space and privacy. Should any unforeseen issue arise, they are quick to respond and easy to work with, to resolve it quickly. The view of the golf course from the patio is fabulous! We think it is one of the best views in the resort. We found both sun and shade on the patio at any time of day, providing a relaxing place to sit and watch the ducks playing in the ponds, or the golfers playing through. The nearest community pool and spa are only steps away from the front door. The salt water pool is heated and there are lots of lounge chairs available. The Palm Desert Resort & Country Club is safe, friendly, scenic and well maintained. The central location in the valley provides for easy access to major shopping areas and tourist attractions.

Perfect spot in the desert

  • 5 of 5

we spent the month of November at this condo. It was the perfect spot for walking, biking, golf, swimming. The resort is well maintained, the pools are warm and clean. The condo has a lovely view of the water and mountains. We walked all over the resort and couldnt see a better place than this.

It is well equipped with all you need. Thanks to the owners for a lovely stay!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in the gated community of Palm Desert Resort. The layout of this condo is great for one or two couples sharing accommodation. Having two master bedrooms with the living room and kitchen in the middle is the perfect setup for couples sharing equally yet having their own space. The beds are extremely comfortable. This unit is bright with huge windows and sliding door and is extremely clean and very nicely furnished with all the amenities of home. The kitchen is well stocked and the owners have obviously gone to great lengths to anticipate what their visitors may need. They have really thought of everything!! We enjoyed the pools and hot tubs which are very close to the unit and are sparkling clean. The golf course is very well maintained, and very affordable. It was great sitting on the large patio during the day as most of it was shaded by two big trees and it was lovely in the evening enjoying the view while sipping on a cocktail and having dinner. We were in awe of the view!!!

Fantastic Vacation Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother-in-law and I spent Christmas week at this lovely condo and had a fabulous time! It was everything the description states and more. All three of us wanted a condo with a view and this view was amazing--both open and private. We loved to sit and watch the ducks, snowy white egrets and other water fowl in and around the lake. The condo itself was well equipped with everything one could want and was extremely comfortable. Having the bedrooms on opposite sides along with the separate bathrooms added privacy and space. And there is so much to do in the nearby vicinity: the aerial tram to the restaurants and hiking; Joshua Tree tours; Palm Springs tours; hiking in the canyons; of course golfing and shopping, and so much more! This condo is the total package and we highly recommend it!
