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.

                                                                  Karla B.

                                                                  This condo was the perfect place to stay for our first visit to Palm Springs. Exactly as it appeared in the pictures and written descriptions- cute, updated, clean, well-stocked, and with access to a great pool. Not walkable, but very close to downtown, and the downtown parking ramp is free anyway. Entire transaction was handled easily and professionally. Looking forward to staying here again!!

                                                                  Wonderful place to stay!

                                                                  Ashley S.

                                                                  Condo was spotless with plenty of storage.

                                                                  Great place, good location

                                                                  Brent B.

                                                                  This property in the Ocotillo Lodge is clean and practical. Liked the fact that there was a washer/dryer in the property. Only drawbacks were the time it took to get water to become hot, and the coffee maker wasn't the best for our tastes. But everything else was great, and I recommend it for others wanting a one-bedroom place while they visit Palm Springs.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks for your booking! There are two coffeemakers available in the cupboard, traditional drip coffee, and Keurig style. This mid-entury building does have 60-year-old plumbing. We usually turn the hot water on a minute before to get it primed. We look forward to your return in the future !
