Palm Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, one bath fully equipped patio home on the Resorter's golf course, surrounded by immaculately groomed greenbelts. Less than a block from 2 pools, the tennis courts, driving range and clubhouse. 43' Smart TV with expanded cable and wireless, of course. The quiet, calm contemporary decor, original artwork, and no knick knacks minimize distractions so you can slow down, and enjoy your vacation. The view from the padded chaise lounges on the extended patio and the warm afternoon sun can't be beat.

About Barbara

After escaping the Northwest weather by renting at Palm Desert Resorter for the past 15 years, we bought a condo here. When we decided to spend even more time here, we bought a 2 bedroom unit. Now we're able to share our one bedroom retreat with you.


Barbara purchased this condo in 2010

Why Barbara chose California Desert

My husband enjoys the great walking and bike riding, I love the warm pools, and we both appreciate being able to walk a block to the driving range, tennis courts and the clubhouse. Sitting on the west-facing deck in the warm sun, looking at the moutains beyond the palms trees, is a special late afternoon treat.

What makes this condo unique

During the season, I am at the Resorter so I can promptly take of anything that might arise. However, you won't see me unless you call. My housekeeper is available for a mid visit cleanings if you would like.

We have never rented to smokers or pet owners, so any allergies should not a problem. I can guarantee you that the unit will be sparkling clean. If you have any questions, please email me and I'll get right back to you. We look forward to your visit.

Excellent for a couple

  • 5 of 5

We are from Calgary and have been coming to the Palm Springs area for 10 years. This year at the last moment we needed to find a place for an additional 2 weeks at the end of our usual stay. We found this condo to be excellent, well supplied, and very close to the club house which was important to us as golfers and also the great dinner specials. Barbara the owner was awesome to deal with. It is quite central and we would recommend this place to any couple.

Owner's Response: I'm glad the two extra weeks worked out for both of us and that you enjoyed yourself. Sounds like you were able to take advantage of pasta night at the clubhouse. We love the hamburgers and especially the onion rings in the bar. Thanks for the great review and enjoy your summer. Barbara

great value

  • 5 of 5

Golf, open green spaces, warm sunny days and a lovely condo to enjoy it from, what's not to like about that? As advertised, the condo is comfortable, well furnished, and equipped for extended stays. Owner is a gem. Best of all, it is reasonably priced. I will be back.

Wonderful Time

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 6 wonderful and relaxing weeks in Palm Desert. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a home away from home vacation. Enjoyed dinners on the patio and watching the sunsets. Went swimming almost everyday we were there. Would definitely recommend the unit to friends and family. Barbara the owner was very nice and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. Aren't those sunsets something? You left everything so neat I could hardly tell you'd been there. I'd love to have you back anytime. Enjoy your winter. Barbara PS We have a beautiful new glasstop stove.

My Nov2012 stay at this property.

  • 4 of 5

I have been a regular visitor to the Coachella Valley for the past 4 years, and this was my first time at the Palm Desert Resort and renting a 1 bed unit.

It suited my needs perfectly this Fall and was well situated for all my favorite activities. The description and pictures are accurate- there were no surprises. I really enjoyed the afternoon sunsets directly west of the patio and the shelter the carport provided the car from heat of the day sunlight.

It has a quiet location in the resort, yet pools are near and the resort location is close to almost any shopping need, I-10 & Hwy 111. The owner is available to handle any issue if need arises, although there were none for me.

A newer TV would be the only thing I can think would make it better, otherwise this unit is at the top of my list if I am looking for a 1 bed next year.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your visit. You'll be happy to hear there is now a 42" Smart flat screen TV.
