Space 1,850 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)


It is early morning and the sun is just beginning to rise. As the warming rays peek over the wall which protects your private pool and patio, you open the wide sliding glass doors to your bedroom and slip easily into the heated spa… no bathing suit is necessary. As you sip your morning coffee and listen to the songs of the local birds, your thoughts are far, far away from the demands of home. You ask yourself, 'Can time stand still?' Indeed why would anyone wish to leave this paradise?

‘The 19th Hole’ is an 1850 sq. foot town-home that has been transformed by its new pool and patio and by its interior renovations with all new furnishings. It is luxurious, private, and serene. You are situated 10 minutes from the airport and from the happenings of downtown Palm Springs.


The living room has soaring cathedral ceilings and circulating fans. Its expansive sliding doors open up onto the pool and patio. It boasts a 10 foot down sofa and 2 down swivel chairs. A 50 inch HDTV sits discreetly on one wall, and on the opposite side of the marble fireplace, a desk is nuzzled in a quiet alcove.


An 8 foot Tommy Bahama dining table and 6 arm chairs provide the makings of a perfect evening. Dim the lights of the chandelier and gaze through the fronds of the jacaranda tree watching the lights of the tram on the San Jacinto mountains.


Whether you choose to cook or not, you will appreciate the flow of the kitchen. The wood cabinets are stocked with all the amenities of home. The granite counters and the top of the line appliances will please the most discerning chef. There is a natural gas Weber barbeque for your use, on the patio, adjacent to the kitchen.


Lose yourself in the four poster California king bed. It has a brand new pillow top mattress and 500 thread count bedding. Watch the late night news on the 42 inch wall mounted TV. Treat yourself to a bath in the sunken tub of the en suite marble bathroom, admiring the view of your secret garden.


Enjoy the separation of 2 twin beds or easily converted king depending on your guests preference. Top of the line pillow top mattresses and 500 thread count sheets are provided for your comfort. Enjoy the early morning rays of sunshine filtering through the attached atrium. The second full en suite bathroom is easily accessible through a pocket door.


This completely enclosed and private pool forms the crown jewel of ‘The 19th Hole’. This state of the art non-chlorinated pool has a pebble-tec surface that is not only soothing to the skin, but also to the eye. Admire the desert landscaping and watch the hummingbirds drink from the flowers around the perimeter. Sun bathe in the comfortably padded lounge chairs. Enjoy your lunch at a table for six shaded by the overhang extending from both the living room and the master bedroom. Watch the sun set over the San Jacinto mountains while sitting under the swaying palm trees. Does it get any better than this?

About Debra Stockdill

We are a couple of health care professionals who live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We have four children and a charming golden retriever. Although we are far from retirement, we love to visit our home in Palm Springs every quarter, to recharge and to enjoy the wonderful ambiance our home has to offer.

Debra Stockdill purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Debra Stockdill chose Palm Springs

Because of our interests, Palm Springs is a natural fit for us. We love the quiet and peacefulness of the community, but also its close proximity to the amenities of downtown Palm Springs. We are challenged by the number of golf courses available for us to play, a number of which are only minutes away by car. Opportunities for hiking and enjoying the outdoors are myriad and many of the best sites are close to Sundance Resort. We like having easy access to the airport. Mostly though, we love the serene ambiance Sundance Resort has to offer.

What makes this townhome unique

Sundance Resort is a low density, quiet community. Each home has its own pool, in an enclosed private yard. Our home backs on to a 7 1/2 acre green space and is rarely used by others. We love to play on the well kept, lighted tennis courts a minute stroll from our home. Each home is large and well designed. After all, it was built for the Dallas Cowboys!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us, all women from various cities in the US, met in Palm Springs for a high school reunion. We rented the 19th hole and loved it! We have rented other homes and this one ranked at the top. Super great beds, bedding and a well-equipped kitchen. The pool is great too though too chilly for us to use!

I stayed at the 19th hole in September 2016 and I can not stop thinking about how amazing my stay was! The 19th hole is a relaxing and welcoming home away from home! Everything you need to make you feel more than comfortable! A beautiful private pool located in the backyard perfect for day and night swimming! Definally a place for quiet, relaxation vacation yet close enough to the the outlet malls, busy downtown and many many amazing places to eat! I will be returning! Thank you to owners who have put so much love and thought into this rental and of course sharing it!

Magical anniversary week

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for in one of our favorite places to visit. Spacious with all the comforts and extras that you could ever desire. We could sit for hours simply admiring the private courtyard and pool. Romantic and oh so quiet. We are looking forward to planning our return.

Has Everything You Need for an Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time me and my family have stayed at the 19th Hole in Palm Springs, and we loved it again! This villa has everything you need! It's super clean, cozy, comfortable, spacious, relaxing, well-appointed, and does not disappoint! We loved everything such as: the amazing beds, beautiful furnishings, big master bath with soaking tub and separate shower, fully-stocked kitchen, beautiful dining table and chairs, cozy new couch, lovely patio and outdoor furniture, relaxing saltwater pool without the smell of chlorine on your skin afterwards, lush grounds with trees and large grassy area, nice washer/dryer, great fridge with water and ice, excellent dishes/cups/glassware/pans/acrylic dishes for kids and outdoors, good cable with nice TV's, spacious walk-in-closet in the master, plenty of sheets/towels/pool towels, privacy, beautiful decor. I could go on and on, but really this villa has everything a small family or two couples would need! We were sad to go after staying for a week. We hope to come back again for the third time! Thank you, Debra and Jim, for being an amazing host and hostess who really focuses on the details of making all of your guests feel welcome and at home. We love your villa!

Perfect Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have rented multiple homes on VRBO and have never been disappointed. But without question this home was perfect. First of all the ease in the rental process was flawless. The information provided to us by the owners specific to the home was detailed and simple to follow. The home was in a gated community and close to all the essentials. Everything you could imagine for a vacation could be found in the home.. The pool area was outstanding ,very private , with first rate lounge chairs. If you are looking for relaxation and privacy in a beautiful home look no further!
