About Uwe and Cari

My husband and I grew up together in the same neighborhood in Southern California and were high school sweethearts. We currently live in Southern California. Our favorite place to travel is Maui, Hawaii.

Uwe and Cari purchased this condo in 2012

Why Uwe and Cari chose California Desert

My parents were original owners of a unit in Desert Falls and we have always enjoyed our stay. Whether that be taking part in the activities or just relaxing by the pool in the friendly, quiet and beautiful Desert Falls community. We are thrilled to have our tropical paradise in the desert and hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location of our unit. It has the most beautiful views of San Jacinto Mountain and overlooks one of the largest pools with jacuzzi, outdoor shower, bathroom and drinking fountain. The west facing balconies are sunny in the afternoon and the perfect spot to watch the beautiful desert sunsets. Since we have an upstairs unit we have vaulted ceilings in most of the rooms which gives our condo a very large and open feeling. All the windows and sliders let in a lot of natural light.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay Mar. 1- 31,2013 in your Palm Desert condo.

We especially like the central location and consequently easy access to the whole valley.

The unit was nicely furnished, well equipped and clean.

Our needs were more than looked after.

Wonderful, comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a number of units at Desert Falls and this was certainly our favorite. Well equipped unit, including all you need to eat in or barbecue on the balcony. Owners were wonderful to work with and rent from. We would absolutely recommend this unit to any of our friends and family.

very happy with this choice

  • 5 of 5

This condo turned out to be above and beyond our expectations. The owners were excellent to deal with and quick to respond to any emails or issues and there really were no issues to speak of. The condo is centrally located and the Desert Falls area is one of the nicest to stay in. A renter could not ask for a nicer place to stay and we hope we can stay here again in the future.

Best Yet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been using VRBO for several years and this is by far the nicest and best equipped three bedroom condo we have rented. The owners were a delight to work with on the few times we needed to communicate. The pictures show the unit and views accurately. Conviently located near the security gate and all the necessary stores. Desert Falls has a very nice club house, golf and great tennis. We would have rented it for January 2016, but we will be on the other side of the world. This year I played tennis every other day and used the hot tub after each match. Pro does great job of setting up matches. Unit is ideally located so noise is minimal. Also very quiet around pool. Met some wonderful people while in pool area. You can't go wrong with this until. Reserve as soon as you can and you won't be sorry.

Beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this condo was! We loved that it over looked the pool. The owners have thought of every detail to make you feel comfortable. The bedroom (master) was huge and comfortable. The location is perfect too! We will be back!

Wonderful location and condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo had all the amenities of home! Clean ,updated , and fully stocked. One of the few in desert falls with beautiful wood floors. The beautiful deck outside the family room and master bedroom overlooks the one of many swimming pools in the complex. Whenever we swam , we were usually the only ones at the pool. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the furnishings just like we were used to . the location is near all the shopping you need and at the same time tucked away in a quiet serene location. We loved our stay. Thanks
