About the property

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

Any season is great in the Desert! Now is the time to plan your relaxing desert vacation in our fully re-decorated home. More space, great views and all the comforts of home for less than the cost of a resort hotel.

Relax in this clean, contemporary condo that has vaulted ceilings in the open concept LR and in the Master BR. The well-designed 1330 sq ft provides ample living space and has two well-separated Bedroom suites each with new and comfy King size beds, ceiling fans, luxurious bedding and their own private bathrooms, making this a great space for 2 couples. The master bathroom was completely renovated in Spring 2015 to provide a walk-in shower and new cabinetry, and all new floor tiles and a kitchen makeover were completed in August 2015.

In 2012, we added a new island, fridge, dishwasher, solid surface stove and new cookware to create an efficiently designed, fully equipped kitchen. We are water-conscious and water-saving toilets, shower heads and faucets have been installed together with desert (low water) landscaping.

This condo has wireless FiOS Internet, cable TV and free telephone calling within the US and to Canada. If you must work while visiting, a wireless printer and small desk are provided.

All of our patio furniture and cushions are new and very comfortable and seating for 6 is available on the fairway patio. So, relax and enjoy breakfast, just lounging or evening drinks while watching golfers from the south-facing and sun-filled fairway patio. Don't worry about too much sun - our fully retractable and motorized awning ensures your comfort throughout the day and makes this patio into an additional, fresh air room.

Eat at your choice of great restaurants, or grill steaks in the private courtyard equipped with a new gas BBQ. In season you will enjoy fresh oranges and lemons from the courtyard trees.

While we don't maintain a golf membership at PVCC, access to the 100,000 square foot clubhouse restaurants and lounge, main pool and hair salon are available with your rental. Better yet, this quiet condo is centrally located, just a short drive to Desert Willow, Shadow Ridge, and JW Marriott at Desert Springs golf courses. There is no shortage of choice when looking for great places to golf!

Golf at these nearby courses, hike or 'shop-til-you-drop' on El Paseo or at the Cabazon Outlets then cool down, or relax those aching muscles in one of the 45+ community pool/spas located close to the condo. With so many pools, you begin to believe that it is reserved for your private enjoyment.

Non-golfers will enjoy the desert cities also: visit Joshua Tree National Park and The Living Desert Zoo, or indulge your artsy side at College of the Desert, McCallum Theater, and Idyllwild. The San Jacinto Mountains provide a playground for hikers, rock climbers, and biking. Temecula Valley Wine Country is an easy day excursion with over 30 vineyards to tempt the palate; many wineries have restaurants, and some are paired with Inns and Spas for those special events.

Visit the desert once and you will always return.

About The Owner

We live in Canada and enjoy all that our country provides, but love the desert in those harsh winter months. We have renovated and re-decorated the condo - with Canadian Flag Red accents. We enjoy the cleanliness and comfort of our condo and know that you will too!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Palm Desert

Palm Desert is central within the Desert Cities, and we have enjoyed the high standards of friendliness and maintenance of Palm Valley Country Club. Plus, this condo is just a 5 minute drive to our favourite golf courses at Desert Willow.

What makes this condo unique

You can do it all in the desert, without repetition; golf, hiking, walking, restaurants, great Happy Hour specials, shopping, casinos and sun-bathing with 360 days of sunshine a year. We have updated furnishings to suit our personal comfort and you will find it steps above many other rentals and hotels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely wonderful time at this beautiful condo. Your condo is wonderful and filled with everything we could possibly need.

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas in the desert!

This home is in a convenient location and is very well equipped with everything you need, right down to the juicer for making lemonade from the tree outside. It is very quiet and well taken care of. Everything you need to know is very well laid out.

We will definitely be back!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful south facing exposure and comfortable patio furniture make for a relaxing stay. The awning is a welcome addition for those really hot afternoons. The hummingbirds are a delight to watch and picking fresh lemons in the courtyard at this time of year was fun. The condo is exactly as shown in the pictures. Nicely renovated and furnished it is equipped with good quality kitchen appliances and supplies. It was very clean on arrival. Mary is great to work with providing clear instructions and a speedy response to any concerns.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying @ Mary and Bill's condo. It had everything one could need and more.

Looking out the back patio is the golf course but unforunately we didn't have a chance to sit out there. The week we were there was over 100 everyday but weather permitting, you could sit out there and enjoy the view.

Everything inside looks just like the picture. If we go back to Palm Desert, we would look up this place again.

We also love that pets were not allowed on this property if you have any allergies to dogs or cats.

Recommended for sure.

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean, quiet location. We would recommend it. Suggest it would be best for a quiet couple or family... though the unit might work for 6, it would be best for 4, in our view. Nearby pools are clean and nice on a hot day. Golf course views are nice. Short drive from the airport, easy to find. We felt secure with the unit door lock and overall gated (secure), quiet community.

Perfect location for a comfortable, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious layout and amenities in this condo. It was nice to have some spices, laundry detergent, paper products and lots of cookware/dishes available to us to use. What we particularly appreciated was the southern exposure on the patio where we sat for hours in the sunshine watching the golfers on a couple of fairways or being entertained by the resident hummingbirds while they protected their private feeder (or so they thought). Lots of privacy both on the patio as well as the courtyard where the barbecue is located. While we were there, both the orange and lemon trees in the courtyard were full of fruit and it was a special treat to have some fresh off the tree. We spent one afternoon at the nearest swimming pool and had it all to ourselves. There are several pools scattered around this community and none of them ever looked full of people. Maybe that's a different story in warmer weather. Mary, the owner, was excellent to work with and responded promptly to all our emails and requests for information. We had a housekeeping issue at the start but Mary was quick to rectify it once we made her aware. We would definitely recommend staying at this property if you're looking for a quiet, central location in Palm Desert.
