About Geoff

My partner and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and purchased the suite in March of 2010. We have always loved visiting Palm Springs and happy to provide you with a home away from home. We believe in offering you the same things we expect when we go on a vacation. Stress-free living. Enjoy!!

Geoff purchased this condo in 2010

Why Geoff chose Twin Palms

I have been visiting Palm Springs for over 25 years so decided to purchase this bright and airy, south facing suite on the SECOND LEVEL. The suite has all the comforts of home. The large semi-private patio outside the patio door is a wonderful place to have breakfast and coffee in the morning, or a delightful dinner in the evening. As I sometimes stay here as well, my expectations for the complex are high, and I strive to offer you everything you come to expect. The large, heated champagne cork-shaped pool is nearby, and is a great place to meet friends by day, then relax in one of the two hot tubs late into the evening.

What makes this condo unique

This QUIET, SOUTH FACING, bright and airy suite is air conditioned, on the second level AWAY FROM THE STREET! It is fully furnished, with a fully supplied kitchen with a dishwasher, and a dining table for four! There is cable TV in the living room and the bedroom. The suite has free internet and unlimited calling in USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, single sink, stacked washer and dryer, supplied with linens, towels and pool towels. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom. The patio set is right outside the suite for a sunny morning coffee, or a dinner for four in the evening. The complex has a large pool, two hot tubs, a social room and an exercise room. There are books and puzzles in a small library for your use as well.

Fantastic condo. Met our needs perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

Geoff's condo at the Ocotillo Lodge is well furnished, super clean, comfortable, and included all the amnesties we needed for a relaxing enjoyable stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and the condo is bright and the air conditioning worked great. The pool is huge and there were always lots of chairs available.

Geoff is super accommodating, friendly, and emails are answered promptly. We throughly enjoyed his condo. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 days and loved it. The condo is exceptionally clean, well-stocked with kitchen cooking utensils and bathroom necessities, and is well it and very comfortable!

We loved the pool, enjoyed it every day. It was never crowded, very clean, and large. Great for lap swimming!

This condo location was perfect for morning walks to grocery stores, downtown, the post office, and more.

It was an ideal location and accommodation for two (very grateful) visitors. We'll definitely rent it again.

Our experience at Ocotillo Lodge was great. Geoff was very responsive and made the entire experience very easy. The apartment itself is decorated nicely, kitchen has all the utensils/equipment you need, comfy bed and great bathroom with sky light. The onsite gym was a bonus which we put to use. Overall a great stay and would definitely book again.
