About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Come relax at Colin's Palm Springs Getaway, a clean and modern upstairs vacation condo in beautiful sunny south Palm Springs. This vacation retreat is decorated with Palm Springs contemporary comfort in mind, and is fully stocked with the amenities to make it your perfect home away from home. Getaway from traffic and stress, and getaway to relaxed Palm Springs living.

The Palm Canyon Villas are known for having tall palm trees, well-maintained landscaping, and a comfortable resort feel. The four unique pools and four tennis courts are all newly refinished and clean. The location is terrific, with walking paths, golf courses, hiking, and shopping within a quarter mile of the property. The residents and tenants of Palm Canyon Villas are primarily 40+, and the atmosphere is peaceful, friendly, and very relaxed.

Read on the lanai and enjoy the view of the pool and the gardens, or take in a game of tennis just steps from the unit. If golf is your sport, the popular Tahquitz Creek public golf course is right across the street. Swim in one of the four heated salt water pools. At night prepare a meal in the fully stocked modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and then eat in the dining room or on the lanai. For your entertainment, there are two 42" flat screen TV's with HD programming, or choose from the DVD library or from 1000's of streaming Netflix shows.

The spacious master bedroom (w/ cal king bed) features an en suite bathroom and a sitting area with a desk and a chair where you can read or use your laptop with the provided high speed WiFi internet. The guest bedroom (w/ queen bed) is smaller but comfortable for one or two people. Both bedrooms feature high quality bedding.

Please use the form on the right to contact me with any questions you might have. I am happy to assist you.

About Colin Sowa

My name is Colin, and I am the owner of this condo. I have lived in Palm Springs since 2005. In 2011 I bought this condo and updated it to make it the kind of place I would like to stay in. I live only seven minutes away from the property and I am available if any problems arise or even just to answer general questions about Palm Springs.

Why Colin Sowa chose California Desert

Palm Canyon Villas is a beautifully maintained property in south Palm Springs, which is very desirable to vacationers. The multiple pools and tennis courts, and easy access to golf and shopping make it a perfect vacation spot.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is rented by the owner, not a rental agency ensuring you more personal and prompt replies and service. To make your stay a little easier, the condo is stocked with a week or two supply of staple goods like tissues, toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, and laundry supplies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was a dream. Every need was anticipated. Thank you so much for making our stay so easy. We definitely will be coming back and hope that your condo will be available. P.S. Marilyn was great!

Beautiful, clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay in this property. It had a partial view of the pool which was also wonderful and we had to ourselves most of the time. Colin was very pleasant to deal with and left us a welcome pack which was very thoughtful. The only issue we had was a bird nesting in the fan on the balcony that left it unusable for 5 days but this no fault whatsoever of Colins in fact he rang to warn us. We will definately use this property next time we visit Palm Springs

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Colin's Getaway and had a fabulous time. The condo was well equipped with comfortable beds and plenty of household equipment. The pool was lovely and we could check out the activity from the balcony. Colin provided every bit of information that we could have asked for. Loved the location - we felt we were central to every area we wanted to explore. 5 stars for the condo and 10 stars for the host!

Beautiful, Immaculate, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I just spent a week at Colin's condo in Palm Springs and it could not have been better! Colin was super-responsive, and the communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The condo is just as lovely as the pictures and was immaculate! Everything was well-stocked (he's thought of everything you'd need for a comfortable stay). Palm Canyon Villas is a friendly, quiet, relaxing community, and the condo is very conveniently located within Palm Springs. We especially loved the terrace off the living room. It feels private, and while it's bright and light, it does not get direct sunlight so you can sit out there at any time of the day and not feel like you need to wear SPF 50. Overall we could not have asked for a better place to stay and consider ourselves thoroughly spoiled. Worth every dime and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
