About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Large Living Room with Sofa Bed (Sleeps 4)

This unique condo is located in the historic Racquet Club of the Garden Villas which was designed by the famed mid-century architect, William F. Cody. The most famous of the film stars and celebrities gathered here while in Palm Springs. This lovely 600 square foot condo was completely re- done from floor to ceiling with all new appliances and furnishing in August of 2012.

It is in a gated community of 37 units and located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs with its excellent restaurants and trendy shops.

This unit sleeps four. In the bedroom there is a queen size bed and in the living room there is a leather sofa that pulls out and makes into a very comfortably queen size bed. For atmosphere and on cooler evening enjoy the wood burning fireplace. All linens are provided.

Dine outdoors on your own very private patio under a canopy of a lovely tree.

The post and beam architecture with the floor to ceiling glass walls are William F. Cody signature look inviting the inside out and the outside in which makes the unit feel much more spacious.

The grounds designed by Phil Shipley are beautiful with trees everywhere, gardens and a soothing a wandering stream. The view of the San Jacinto Mountains is spectacular and the extra-large swimming pool and spa are very special.

It has a new stainless steel kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, bowls, blender, ice maker and an outdoor BBQ for your cooking and meal preparation convenience. There is also a private washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Wayne Headrick

My wife and I who have been married for 44 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired five years ago, we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 sq, ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos the unit is extensively decorated with the works of several well know artists. Before starting the printing studio and the art gallery, we lived in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German born. She speaks German, English and French.

We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.

Wayne Headrick purchased this condo in 2012

Why Wayne Headrick chose California Desert

For many years we lived at the beach and bought a unit in the Garden Viillas to come on the weekends when the weather was not so nice on the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here five years ago.

What makes this condo unique

In our opinion the Garden Villas of the Racquet Club is the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. In the Garden Villas there are only 37 units. It is a gated community and this historical place has magnificant grounds, an extra large pool with a fountain and a spa.

Our stay was short but the rental was beautiful and made it pleasing to return to at the end of a day. The owners were gracious and attentive to our needs. Would recommend it highly to other couples and will certainly return if we have another trip to Palm Springs.

Lovely peaceful clean condo unit in a very quiet and tranquil complex

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Located in a beautifully landscaped condo property with classic midcentury architecture, the units are charming , with lots of glass walls, and clean lines. The units we stayed in ( side by side) were clean and equipped with everything you need. Full modern kitchen, pool towels. The property itself is lovely to walk around in, very clean and quiet, beautiful mountain views, amazing pool and pool area, beautiful landscaping.

A very comfortable and beautiful vacation environment

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely experience for our first visit to Palm Springs. This recently updated condo had first rate appliances, comfortable queen sized bed, lovely modern artwork, a great patio with table and 4 comfortable chairs shaded by a tree with the occasional hummingbird sighting, a second smaller patio held a high quality stainless- steel BBQ and a small table and chairs. We enjoyed some HDTV in the evenings and took advantage of the excellent wifi connectiivity in the condo. The lighting was excellent throughout the condo. There was assigned covered parking in front of the condo. The approximately 60 ft pool was a big attraction for us. It was very lightly used by other people and was great for swimming lengths. Last but not least, the owners were very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it is hard to recommend this more highly!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our experience. The condo had everything we needed and looked exactly as pictured on the website. Parking right outside your door and a 2 minute walk to the pool. I would recommend this condo based on my experience.
