About Ed Gestine

We purchased this unit in the summer of 2012 after owning 2 other units in the country club. We know the club well and know that being in the center of the club is the place to be.

Just a few hundred yards from the clubhouse and all its amenities, our unit is just a comfortable stroll away.

My wife and I like the aesthetics of the area with the beautifully landscaped grounds and water features in the community after vacationing at various resorts around the world.

Why Ed Gestine chose California Desert

We chose Palm Valley Country Club about 15 years ago after visiting many clubs throughout the desert.

We found this upscale, gated country club community to be among the finest in the desert.

Beautifully landscaped throughout the year makes us always feel that we are on vacation every time we visit.

We also like the fact that Palm Valley is one of the few clubs in the desert that doesn't 'shut down' like so many others in the off season due to the over 1200 units in the community.

Pasta Night has been a Friday night year round attraction at the clubhouse restaurant for over 25 years.

You can also shop, dine, enjoy the lounge, have a spa treatment, or go to the beauty salon year round. Or drive to the nearby casinos, clubs, or live entertainment venues for a night out.

What makes this condo unique

There are several unique benefits of our unit. We have one of the best central locations in the community for starters.

Not only is it just across from the clubhouse, but it is even a shorter walk to your choice of one of two local community pools.

Another feature of our condo is all of the upgrades this unit has received. The kitchen and master bathroom has been remodeled with granite counter tops, cabinet upgrades, and new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.

The views outside are just gorgeous with flowers, fairways, lakes and waterfalls all visible from the back patio.

The condo is a perfect spot for a quiet getaway with access to lots of outdoor activities. The condo is very clean, well-stocked, organized, and everything works! I highly recommend this home to anyone coming to Palm Desert. I woukd absolutely stay here next time I come to the area.

The owner was wonderful to work with, I wanted to add an additional day and he worked out that arrangement for us. I had a couple of questions after arrival and Ed emailed in a very timely manner.

The condo is well equipped, even down to pool towels. We love the location, dining and shopping near by. There is two pools in easy walking distance from the condo.

The cozy one bedroom unit was very comfortable and in a great very quiet location. Everything from the reservation process, the check-in and check-out process, and the response to inquiries was very professional. We like it so much that we have reserved for another extended stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ed... You folks are wonderful hosts....the condo is well equipped throughout and the location opportunes sunlight morning coffee watching the golfers struggle with the beautiful water feature in front of the patio. All the extra amenities in the kitchen and the bathroom made a smooth transition from arrival to departure. The weather was perfect..a bit of rain to clear the air and above normal temperatures most of the month. The Sat morning market in the parking lot is a plus....unbelievable strawberries. Muchas Gracias, the Canadians from the Dominican Republic, Jim and Marian Corrigan

Great attention to detail and knowing their guest needs deserves a 5 Star rating

  • 5 of 5

We travel at least three times a year and use VRBO consistently. Ed's Palm Springs Condo is one of the best VRBO marketed accommodations we've stayed in. As stated by prior guests, the reservation process, check in, location, view from the Condo and amenities were perfect for my wife and I. What makes this a 5 star for us is the 'details and quality' that Ed pays attention to for guests. It's the small stuff like updated appliances, quality linens, and accessories (kitchen, bathroom, laundry) that gives us confidence to check '5' stars. Include in this, Ed's quick response to all inquiries made, which were minimum. Beyond the condo itself, the Palm Valley Club complex is beautiful and offers several pools, walking areas and one feels very secure. Thanks Ed...you stand behind what you market.

Our First Visit

  • 5 of 5

The arrangements worked like a charm. All was coordinated as stated by the contact person. The facilities were as described and functioned in our plans for our stay. The accommodation was very restful, centrally located in the city, had all amenities close by, all people in the facility were very friendly and helpful and the whole experience was very enjoyable.

We would consider this venue again should we decide to visit the area again. The owner was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
