California Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Pastel & Wicker Free!!

Make the most of your Palm Springs getaway in this comfortable and modern, 1330 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 2 bath , 2nd story condominium, conveniently located in Cathedral City - between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. All of the furnishings throughout the condo were puchased in 2010 and are like new.

*New wood flooring in dining room, living room and hallways. New floor tiles in both bathrooms. All installed in 2013. New washer/dryer/dishwasher/water heater installed in 2014

Thanks to the premiere location of this condominium within the Canyon Shores complex, your southwest facing balcony boasts a spectacular mountain view. It's also the perfect place to relax with a cool drink and good book while you keep an eye on the kids at the pool - or maybe just watch the many ducks enjoy the beautiful ponds. This condo is one of the few units in the complex that enjoys a large pond & fountain view in both the front and back. This feature truly creates an atmosphere of calm relaxation and lush seclusion.

From corkscrew to cookie sheet, food preparation will be a breeze in this fully stocked kitchen.

Both bedrooms feature plush-top queen-size beds. The master bedroom boasts a full ensuite while the guest room has the main bath just steps away. If you have addional guests - no worries! The sofa in the living room converts into yet another queen bed.

You can also stay connected with friends and family back home thanks to high-speed wireless internet and free long-distance calling throughout North America. A keyless entry also means you'll never have to worry about keeping track of the keys.

One covered parking stall is included with the rental and there are plenty of guest parking spaces very close to your front door.

About Mark Milne

I'm a Senior News Producer for the Global Television Newtwork in Canada. I work on our morning news program in Edmonton, Alberta - so my alarm clock goes off pretty early in the morning. While I truly enjoy my job, a relaxing break in the sand & sun is always a welcome distraction.

Mark Milne purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mark Milne chose California Desert

I visited Palm Springs for the first time in 2008 and fell in love with the scenery, pace and hospitality. When looking to buy a property in this desert paradise, I visited many different complexes. I knew the minute I stepped into Canyon Shores, this was the place for me. In addition the to beautiful grounds, the complex is remarkably quiet.

What makes this condo unique

I always try to re-Invest in my property through upgrades and renovations. I believe a property needs to continually evolve to remain attractive to the renter. There are still a few minor updates to be done ... But all in good time!

Wonderful Condo, Beautiful Grounds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mark's Canyon shores condo for the month of Feb. I knew as soon as I walked in that it was going to be great. The condo is spacious, bright, and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with every gadget you might need. The grounds are stunning. We loved walking the perimeter of the gated neighborhood every morning, lounging by the pool, bike riding to Palm Springs and sitting on the balcony enjoying a margarita while watching the ducks in the beautiful ponds. There are so many fun things to do in the area that we could not get it all done in a month....have to go back next year!!! Mark was remarkable to work with...we were very last minute on our reservation but he made sure we did not stress about it. His words were "go have fun in the sun" and that what we did!! Thank you Mark...can't wait to go back.

Relaxing vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and location of this condo were wonderful. The peaceful and beautiful grounds and pools of Canyon Shores enhance your stay in the sunny Coachella Valley. Restaurants, grocery stores and local attractions are within an easy drive. The owner, Mark was wonderful and attentive. The condo is clean, fully stocked with supplies and well furnished. Having in house Wi-fi was an added plus as well as satellite TV. All information and photos listed on website are exact. We would definitely stay in this lovely condo, again.

Equipped Just Like at Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this rental in November 2014 after having spent the last 5 years elsewhere, and I will sure to return. Not only is Mark very accommodating, the unit is in a quiet gated community close to everything. It is fully stocked, spacious and is within a short walk to 2 of the 5 pools and tennis courts/clubhouse in the community. Pictures are exactly as stated on the website. Cannot wait to come back next year.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Canyon Shores was thoroughly enjoyable. The property, grounds, amenities and condo were all accurately represented and lived up to (and sometimes exceeded) expectations. The condo was clean, large, well-furnished and had all the little extras needed, including condiments, plenty of towels, iron, in-suite laundry, and our favourite, Canadian TV, so we could keep up with our football team! Mark was very helpful in answering our numerous questions before arrival, and we had no issues while at the condo. The location within the complex was perfect - ponds and waterfalls on either side of the condo, and the balcony had a great view over one of the pools and the mountains. The tennis courts, gym, and main pool were only steps from the condo, and the complex overall was very well kept and quiet. Plenty of hummingbirds to watch while we ate breakfast on the balcony!

The airport was less than 10 minutes away, and driving to Palm Springs to take in the Air Museum, Art Museum, and Thursday night Villagefest (a huge streetfair complete with food, entertainment and shopping) was even easier. There were no easy-to-walk-to restaurants due to the lack of sidewalks and evening streetlights, but that is the case in most places in the Coachella Valley. We found a great little doughnut shop, Vienna Donut and Ice Cream, about a mile and half away on Ramon Road. The staff were very friendly and we felt like regulars by the second visit. Babe's BBQ and Brewhouse on Hwy. 111 was a great place for an evening meal, sitting on the patio overlooking the River and the sunset. The Trilussa restaurant (Italian) was even closer to home, and had a great evening patio, with movie theatres right next door.

The condo was furnished and outfitted in such a way that you felt comfortable and at home, yet the weather and the views reminded us daily that we were indeed in a lovely vacation spot. We really didn't want to leave, but sadly, our 2 weeks' was up. We would highly recommend Mark's condo for a relaxing getaway.

Quiet condo in beautiful complex

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well equipped with adequate linens,pillows, towels, cooking ware, soaps and paper supplies. The beds were comfortable and the TV had a great selection of movie channels. The condo grounds were beautiful and immaculately kept.

Mark was very prompt with his replies and very accomodating. He provided a very detailed information package before arrival and a similar list of information was in the unit.
