About Ben Brissey

I live in the mountains just outside of Palm Springs at 7000' working full time at southern California's premier winter ski resort in Big Bear, CA, where I enjoy skiing & snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, boating and all the great outdoors has to offer!

Ben Brissey purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Ben Brissey chose California Desert

I purchased this townhome because of all the amenities within the Village Racquet Club and a place for me to escape the winter's cold & play a round of golf, as I love the moderate desert climate, warm & dry, but also like the summers heat! The location just doesn't get any better!

What makes this townhome unique

The main benefit of this place is definitely location! Close to everything, only a 10 minute walk to downtown and within a 10 minutes drive to absolutely everything you could ever need!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo, located in the Village Racquet Club complex, is the best. This was our second year we have rented here and it just keeps getting better. The owner has made improvements and updates and has promised more for next year. He has his unit stocked with tennis racquets, bicycles, pool toys, several board games, Wii; cable TV with premium movie channels, a computer and a telephone with unlimited calling!

This unit has two bedrooms and two baths, a dining area as well as a breakfast nook and 4 televisions.

Village Racquet Club itself is very clean, well maintained and secure. A ten minute walk gets you to downtown Palm Springs, a supermarket, a movie theatre and a casino.

Great location and a peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The Village Racquet Club is about a 10 minute walk to the heart of downtown - to all the restaurants, shops, clubs, the"Happy Hours" and various outdoor markets. The grounds are nicely landscaped and groomed, the pools are cleaned daily, and the complex is secure, quiet and friendly.

The townhouse itself is nicely furnished. Although it can sleep 6, we found it comfortably spacious for 4 with the layout providing privacy for everyone. There's a balcony off the living room which provides a nice view of the courtyard/grounds and another patio downstairs (with BBQ) which opens up to he courtyard - steps away from the pool! Not all the pools are heated at the same time but if the one out front is too chilly for you, it's a 2 minute walk to the next pool which will be heated. There's ample room for both indoor and outdoor dining. It's not super modern (like some of the other condos we've rented) but I think that's what made it feel so comfortable and not pretentious.

Mostly, we felt "at home" and Ben, the owner, is quick to answer any questions you may have. We rented the townhouse for a month this year and because we enjoyed it so much, we'll be returning next year for 2 months! It's also close to convenience stores or "Ralphs", a bigger grocery store, which has everything you would need. Although we had a car while we were there one could make due without one (unless you wanted to visit some of the parks and/or nature reserves, or do some serious shopping).

We highly recommend this "home-away-from-home" townhouse. Thanks for your hospitality, Ben!

Best Palm Springs trip ever

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! A 15 minute walk to downtown Palm Springs and 2 different movie theaters.

This condo unit is large, well appointed with lots of extras included. Upon arrival we had a special request for the owner (over and above what he had already provided) and within 20 minutes our request was honored at no extra cost. Most mornings we went out our door and picked a grapefruit and orange off the trees in the complex, played tennis and/or took a nice desert hike.

This unit is clean and quiet. The complex itself is well maintained. The pools and hot tubs were clean, and yes, heated.

After just a few days into our month long vacation, we reserved this exact unit for next year.

Heartfelt home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Perhaps because the way Ben furnished the condo, no clutter, neutral earth tones, comfortable furniture, etc., we felt immediately at home and took advantage of the swimming pool and ate the luscious citrus fruit freshly picked from the trees planted a stone throw away from the front door. Each morning we took our breakfast under the sun on the patio. The location was perfect, only a few minutes by car from down town with no chain restaurants in sight but where we enjoyed the best hamburgers and tried a vast variety of culinary delights. We also BBQ'd a lot at the condo. The condo is a few minutes away from a number of hiking trails and 20+ minutes from Desert Springs and Rancho Mirage. But we really enjoyed shopping at the Outlet Mall also about 20+ minutes away from the Condo. Ben, the owner, was a treasure who went out of his way to make sure we're comfortable and happy.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this condo. It was spacious, clean, well maintained and equipped. I appreciated the closet and drawer space for personal belongings. The one thing that took a bit to getting used to was having the kitchen 2 floors below the living room, not very convenient for serving refreshments in the living room.
