Overview

Palm Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

BOTH QUEEN BEDROOMS ARE PRIVATE MINI-SUITES WITH THEIR OWN BATH, ALSO PRIVATE

Located in the most beautiful Country Club in the valley. Incredible landscaping, quiet. Great location, gate guarded surroundings. April in Palm Desert is the best. Springtime temps (check it out), delicious restaurants, exciting entertainment, desirable shopping. Mosquitoes don't like us and life is good.

Furnishings are no more than five years young. New a/c. Over $50,000 in upgrades throughout. New linens, towels, dishes, pots, pans, utensils. I want you to be comfortable and leave happy.

Step out your door and enter paradise.

Two bedroom queen beds with miracle foam toppers, just cuddle in and enjoy. Separate suites for privacy and each with it's own patio. Cocktails and munchies on the golf course patio in the evening. Life is good.

The BBQ is located right outside of the dining area. How convenient is that!

Located 500 feet above the desert floor it seems that the air is just a little sweeter. No freeway, train or traffic noise. Quiet and yet just up the hill from the best shopping in the desert.

Theatre, movies, art shows, our world renowned street fair on weekends, junk food to fine dining close more could I want? This duplex is beautifully located overlooking the 12 th hole of our South .

Newly decorated and newly listed! with a great downcourse view. Don't be bored on this vacation!

Cable TV, wireless internet access,free phone calls to the entire United States and Canada, two sets of clubs (not new, but very nice), board games, many different kinds so you don't get bored, playing cards, pool floats and noodles, pool towels, books, close to shopping, theatres. Two bedrooms, two baths and a beautiful view. Great patios for your evening supper or cocktails. Ironwood is the best!..

PETS!!!!!! Although there will be an extra cleaning charge required which will include carpets and upholstered furniture it is still less expensive than boarding and you and your pet will be happier. Pets must be small, under 25 lbs. and a non-shedding breed.

This is also a totally non-smoking home both inside and out.You smoke! I charge! It could run as much as $500.00 or more. out of your damage deposit.

About Norma Milne

When I sold my hotel and retired I chose Palm Desert as my home base andI chose Ironwood Country Club because of its location, 500 feet above the valley floor, the level of security feels safe and it's beauty. No trains to keep,you awake at night and no traffic, sophisticated surroundings, close to shopping, entertainment and dining.

Norma Milne purchased this condo in 2004

Why Norma Milne chose Palm Desert

Ironwood is where the air is fresher. No freeway, train or traffic noise. Quiet and yet close to some of the best shopping in the desert. Theatre, movies, art shows, our wonderful weekend street fair, junk food to fine dining is close by.

What makes this condo unique

My neighbors are great and the nights are quiet. Morning walks are refreshingly wonderful. It is nice to be away from freeways, trains and busy streets yet be just a hop, skip and a jump to all of the restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, shopping, galleries and activities.

Great Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Palm Desert at this home. It was comfortable and well equipped. Two large master suites, perfect for two couples. The was another day bed if a 5th had accompanied us. The neighborhood was beautiful. The owner, very helpful and considerate. I hope to stay there again in the future.

Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Norma's condo for the month of February 2016. It was clean, spacious and in a great location (walking distance to the Living Desert). The bedrooms are both very good size with private bathrooms and lots of closet space. Norma is a real sweetheart - very funny and great to deal with. We would definitely rent from her again.

January Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our vacation at Norma's condo. It is located very close to El Paseo where all the great restaurants and shopping are...Ironwood is a very nice area and because it's gated, you feel very safe..Once you get your pass at the front gate it's a piece of cake to enter..The security people are very nice and accommodating.

Norma had installed a new large Smart TV in the living area which has a wonderful picture. Also she has all of the pertinent information that you need listed on a bulletin board in the kitchen.. She is a wonderful landlord and makes you feel very comfortable during your stay..

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas in Palm Desert this year and I had to find a family-friendly home in Ironwood Country Club for our daughter and her family to stay. Norma's ad on VRBO attracted me instantly when I saw the picture of her friend and dog sleeping out on the patio! I thought, "this is someone I want to meet"! Her home met and exceeded our expectations. Each of the three children had a place to sleep (my grandson's playpen fit perfectly into a large storage closet, so he was able to have uninterrupted naps while the rest of the family entertained themselves) and to play. There were pool toys we could use and the surrounding area was safe and fun to use for exploring and using the new scooters the kids got for this vacation. The home "felt like home" and Norma and her family "felt like family" - right from the start. We have begun what I'm sure will be a life-long friendship. Thank you, again, you've helped make this Christmas in California extra-special. Blessings and love, Suzanne

Comfortable, Quiet, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely furnished. The patio is scenic and quiet. The owner goes

out of her way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The unit is handicapped

equipped, You can't go wrong with this nice condo. Ironwood is a gated community.

It's a classy place, central to all amenities in the Palm Desert area. A wonderful place

for a nice walk during the day.
