About Tamara Olson

Born and raised in Minnesota, I moved to California loving the weather but still missing the seasons. I have found the best of both worlds. In the summer we go to Minnesota and spend time at the little lake I grew up by. In the winter we enjoy our desert home-away-from home in Palm Desert.

Felt like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this rental during a contract at Eisenhower Medical Center. We had a wonderful stay during our time at Tamara’s. She always made sure we had what we needed, and that the condo was in perfect condition for us. It was immaculate upon move in, and had all the necessary amenities for our long stay. The size and layout of the space allowed for comfortable living for all seasons - the heat of the summer and the cooler fall and winter. Location-wise, we felt central to everything we needed, shopping centers just minutes away, and Joshua Tree National Park just a short drive away as well. LA, San Diego, and Temecula are also easy weekend trips from Tamara’s rental. Overall, we can’t say enough good things about Tamara and her rental property, and feel so lucky to have found this rental for our stay in Palm Desert. She was always a joy to speak with and was so hospitable. We will definitely be staying here if we are ever back in the area!

Classy & welcoming

  • 5 of 5

As soon a you walk in, you feel straight away like your home. It's welcoming, clean, spacious, cozy & stylishly decorated, with all the amenities that one would need in a home. From the kitchen to the 2 bedrooms with plenty of extra towels, sheets, blankets. A washer dryer in the 2 car garage. With also plenty of board games & books for friends gathering, a romantic long get away or a tranquil peaceful time alone. The complex has swimming pools, tennis court & more.

It's a great location, as close to plenty of restaurants, stores, hiking trails & golf and not forgetting, El Paseo, the new Rodeo drive. Tamara is well organized & on top of it. You can reach her easily if you need to.

Her home is great for a few months or just for the month. Look forward to going back.

That's Tamara

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here for a month the past two years and loved it. The condo is in a great location, both in the community and in Palm Desert. It's close to everything - shopping, dining, hiking and local attractions such as, The Living Desert, McCallum Theater and COD Street Fair.

The owner (Tamara) makes sure everything is to your satisfaction when you arrive. The condo is clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable.

We are already looking forward to going back next year.

Tamara's condo is just as advertised---Clean, good location, quiet, beautifully decorated, and very functional--Best of all is Tamara. I've used VRBO a lot and never have I had such care--very helpful, organized and always there to help make your stay a great one-The only negative was the tennis courts--there is only one now and it is not good surface wise--A great find!!

Great value & location

  • 5 of 5

Nice place. Is actually nicer that what the photos show and is exactly as described. Owner (Tamara) is easy to deal with, very pleasant, and prompt. The place was freshly cleaned when we arrived & was spotless. Great location near Hwy 111 & almost everything you would want to see or do. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, clean, reasonably priced place to spend a week or so in the desert.

Very Nice Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent just over a week here at the end of Feb. and beginning of March. It was actually nicer than the pictures. It was very clean and much roomier than we were expecting. We really liked all the windows in the kitchen and dining area. The townhome was very clean and the owner was very easy and pleasant to deal with. The gated community is very quiet and perfectly located in the centre of Palm Desert. It's a location we really appreciated because we checked out all parts of the valley and found we were never too far away from any of it. We'd have no problem recommending it to any of our friends or relatives. This is definitely a property that should be considered for your travel accommodations.
