Today the elegance and beauty of the living area and grounds are exquisitely restored and maintained by the Club Condos which consist of 51 privately owned luxuriously units. This complex was connected to the original Racquet Club where the guest stayed and played. If the walls could only talk.

Everything from ceiling to floor in this 1,362 sq. ft. two bedroom, two bath unit is new and has been completely renovated with its Fleetwood windows and doors- appliances including a $7,000 a Sub-Zero refrigerator- a Viking induction range, slab granite counter tops, Columbia custom cabinetry, Kohler fixtures, air conditioning, etc., etc……. The kitchen is truly a chef’s delight.

The living room, dinning room, kitchen and patios are separate but architecturally open. and pleasing with its unique furniture, furnishings, artwork and decorations. Included is a 55” wall mounted flat screen TV.

The master bedroom has its own bathroom with tub, a king size bed, wall mounted flat screen TV, a large mirrored closet with plenty of drawers for your personal belonging and clothes. The master bedroom opens on to the pool. No need to get dresses just open the sliding glass doors and jump into the pool.

The second bedroom is small but comfortable with two extra long beds with extra long quality mattresses. It also has its own private bathroom and shower.

The private patio is completely spacious with an outdoor dinning table that seats six. It has two matching chaise lounge chairs for sunning yourself next to the pool or talking afternoon naps. In addition there are three large Italian Knoll chairs for relaxing and looking up to the swaying palms. In addition there is a grill for cooking outdoors.

The new ultra tech pebble salt water pool and spa is something very special and private. In addition to the unit’s private pool there is a large community pool and spa for extended swimming and exercise which is no more than steps from the unit.

About Wayne Headrick

My wife and I who have been married for 46 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired seven years ago we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos, the units are extensively decorated with the works of many well know artists. Before that we lived and did business in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German who, of course speaks German and French.

We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.

Wayne Headrick purchased this condo in 2014

Why Wayne Headrick chose Palm Springs

For years we lived at the beach and bought a Palm Springs property to come on the weekends when it was foggy or cold at the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here 7 years ago.

What makes this condo unique

In our opinion the Club Condos is one of the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. First of all there are only 51 units in this gated compound with its magnificent grounds and large picturesque swimming pool and spa. In addition, this unit has its own private salt water pebble tech pool and spa which is completely private and protected by high walls.

Nice quiet property, close to the airport and tram.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place and very quite, we only saw one person at the community pool.The owner was very nice, she even had a plumber come clear the shower drain that was backing up. We had the pool/spa heated, but the owner was in control of when the spa was on, via an app on her cell phone, we had to text her when we wanted to use it, it was a bit of a hassle. The condo needed a good deep cleaning, it was dusty and the windows and mirrors were smeary/streaky.

Loved the kitchen and the outdoor living space! Pool and spa were heated and ready to go for us when we arrived. We will absolutely be staying in this condo again!

Peace and Quiet and a Good Value.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed the second week of December. Loved it. Herta is an absolutely perfect host.: she really cares about your needs. The place: super relaxing and quiet. We hardly saw a soul. Great full kitchen, tons of counter space, everything you need. Master suite is very comfortable. Subdued lighting--for those bright days; plush carpeting for those colder desert nights.Good bed. The living room is spacious with a dining area that overlooks the lap pool/jacuzzi. Elvin Earle--the famed Disney animator--prints adorn the walls. They are beautiful. Lovely seating for six at the outside patio table. Two lounge chairs and a few other stand alone are all you need. The pool is worth getting. Location: perfect for our needs. Albertson's just blocks away. The major places to eat and shop all within 10 minutes drive. Would definitely stay again. Bathroom needs an update but is still good.

A great private oasis in the middle of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights in this condo. It was more than enough space for 2 people with a large living space, very well-appointed kitchen, and 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms. Of course, I would be remiss in not highlighting the spacious outdoor area that wraps the condo with dining, lounging and pool areas - all of it screened by a high wall, ensuring privacy. The privacy was assisted not only by the set up of the complex which fully separates many of the buildings, but also the presence of very few residents.

The kitchen includes state of the art appliances, the living area has plenty of seating space, and the master bedroom is spacious and furnished with a king bed, plenty of closets, and a private bath. The second bedroom is smaller with 2 twin beds and additional closet space.

The condo is convenient to much of downtown Palm Springs (just a short drive) as well as to the tram. There is a nearby Albertsons grocery store (5 minutes) if you need provisions.

Herta (the owner) met us at the condo and was very friendly and helpful in showing us the place and was easy to get in touch with for questions.

The only advice I would provide would be to request to heat the private (saltwater) pool in advance if you wish to use it - even on a 100 degree day, the water was surprisingly cold.

Feels Like a Private Home

  • 4 of 5

This condo was beautifully updated with a private pool and jacuzzi. It had everything we needed and was an easy drive to downtown. The manager Ginny and owners were very responsive. The only reason for the 4 stars was the jacuzzi wasn't working which was one of the main reasons we booked this place. Otherwise a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately at the last minute, we had an equipment failure. It was out of our control and it certainly happened at the wrong time. Due to the weekend, the part was not available until Monday. We did our best to expedite the repairs. In the meantime, the community pool and jacuzzi were available steps away from the condo.

Small oasis, perfect for families with small children

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect for our family, and Herta was very sweet! A small private pool was all our toddler and baby needed. They had a blast. Parking was steps away from the front door, which was such a bonus for all the stuff we had due to traveling with 2 young children. Guest parking was nearby as well. Some ants and a silverfish found their way into the kitchen, but nothing we couldn't handle. We'd definitely stay here again!
