About Kelly Grotsky

Hi - I'm Kelly Grotsky and I grew up in the home you are looking to rent. I have been a desert resident my entire life and adore my childhood home. My husband and I have recently remodeled the property to include some very modern amenities but still wanted to keep the character and charm of this home. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I are local desert residents. He is the sales manager of the Coachella Valley Brewing Co - our desert's premier brewery! I am a psychotherapist and work as a supervisor of mental health services for Riverside County.

We hope you enjoy this home as much as we do. We just live a few miles away from this property so we are available to deliver or fix anything you need to make your time in our home more enjoyable.

Kelly Grotsky purchased this house in 1984

Great neighbourhood and a wonderful pool

  • 3 of 5

This three bedroom, three bath property was great for our extended family's stay in the desert. It was central so we could walk to restaurants, to shopping on El Paseo, and even to the Living Desert zoo and the pool and back yard made staying home a pleasure. The house was basic but fine once we hid a scary clown picture so that the 5 year old wasn't traumatized and put the beanie baby collection on a high shelf so that the little ones weren't tempted. It could use a little maintenance though. We kept finding screws on the patio that seemed to have fallen from some piece of furniture or some apparatus.

Kelly and Gary were responsive to inquiries and did everything right in terms of being unobtrusive but there if you needed them.

Review of property 450390

  • 3 of 5

The property was as it appeared in the photos. It was spacious (except one of the bedrooms had a spinet piano which made the room slightly crowded) and clean (except the shower door tracks could have used more work). There was a television in the living room and in each of the bedrooms as well. All the appliances worked fine. The pool area had a very nice pergola with very comfortable seating. It was on the south (back) side of the house which provided sun all day, though there were shady areas as well. There was also a gas grill. The neighborhood was quiet and conveniently located near Highway 111, shops, restaurants, groceries and a mall with a variety of stores to include a multi-screen movie theater.

The binder provided by the landlord needs some updating. My sister and I didn't realize there are two thermostats, for example, so we had to bother Kelly about some heat. My sister's room had no lamps on the bedside tables, but we found two in a front hall closet. One of the lamps in my bedroom had a burned-out bulb. My sister's bathroom faucet had no hot water and the volume was low. The staff that cleans between tenants should check those things. Otherwise, no complaints. The rent was reasonable and we would go back.

peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Palm Desert. The house was clean and having three master bedrooms each with their own bathroom was perfect with all us girls. The pool area was fantastic with plenty of seating in the sun or shade.

Girls Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in this beautiful Palm Desert home. The backyard and pool area were great-- loved barbecuing and hanging out outside. Less than a 5 minute drive to El Paseo and convenient to Coachella/Stagecoach.

Clean, quiet, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

This house was spotless, well appointed, and in a great location. Each of the 3 bedrooms had an ensuite bathroom, which was perfect for 3 couples. We cooked breakfast and dinner in the house and found the kitchen to be well equipped and large enough for 2 cooks working together. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet. We spent the majority of our time in the fabulous back yard in and around the pool. Kelly was great to work with. We will likely be back.
