About Geoff

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

Geoff purchased this condo in 2010

Why Geoff chose Palm Springs

I have been visiting Palm Springs for over 26 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, and double sinks, supplied with linens, towels and pool towels. The laundry facilities are a short walk from the suite. 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 in a small library for your use as well.

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.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at this property! Though it was slightly far from the Coachella festival, with the shuttle pass pick up/drop off location only 2 miles away, it incredibly convenient! It was great to be close to the Ace Hotel for some nightlife and Ralph's to grab groceries. Very relaxing environment, especially when we needed necessary downtime before and after the festival. Clean condo and great amenities (linens, towels and a few food items were provided). The booking process was smooth and simple, definitely recommend for a weekend getaway!

We have stayed in this unit for a month each of the last two years, and love it!!! The unit is very clean and is extremely well furnished. The complex is also clean and well cared for. We would be willing to give a personal reference and have given the owner permission to provide potential clients with our contact information.
