About Nancy

My husband and I live in San Diego and love the desert! We decided to purchase a condo of our own this year so we could make it as homey as our permanent home! We like the desert in the summer, so we decided to let others enjoy our little piece of heaven when we're not there!

Nancy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nancy chose California Desert

We found Monterey Country Club to be the perfect location. It has easy access to all the desert has to offer! It is a clean, quiet community in the center of everything!

What makes this condo unique

The location is perfect. Not near any noisy streets - towards the end of a cul de sac.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Nicely equipped and full of basic needs like spices and condiments made this easy to move into for a week's stay. The floor plan of this condo provides a separate guest room and bath that are on the opposite sides of the house, so it felt very private. The loft would be great for kids. Patios on both sides of the house gave us options for sun or shade. The views were fabulous and we enjoyed using the bicycles and golf cart for exploring the area. Golf carts are even allowed on nearby Monterey Avenue so it was easy to run up to the grocery store if the car was unavailable. I loved trying out several of the 37 swimming pools around the country club. Great vacation. We will go again!

Christmas In The Desert

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beyond FANTASTIC for our family to celebrate Christmas with our grandmother. This condo is so incredibly well stocked that everything for making Christmas dinner to hosting Christmas Brunch was made simple. The entire family enjoyed spending time on the patios in the sun. All aspects of this condo are up to date, beautifully decorated, classy and very clean. We truly couldn't have asked for a better place for our family to come together for the holiday!

Fully stocked & very clean!

  • 4 of 5

We were easily accommodated by the owners as we were a very last minute booking. The owners were very easy to get a hold of to answer any questions or concerns. Great overall location on Monterey Ave. The unit itself was very clean, tidy, and felt very spacious. Lots of natural daylight, with wonderful patio space for sun lovers and those seeking shade. Loads of available cleaning supplies, and plenty of towels! Pool #4 (which was the closest pool) was virtually ours, as no one was hardly in it but us! Certainly was a very pleasant and comfortable home away from home.

An Amazing Getaway In The Desert!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect getaway for our family’s spring break. It was all the photos pictured and more. Everything was fresh, beautifully updated, well stocked and comfortable. We arrived and my 16-year-old son immediately took over the loft space. There are flat screen TVs in every room (including the loft) and the Wi-Fi worked great, so he was happy up in his nest! I spent my mornings with a cup of coffee on the patio over looking the golf course and the mountains. Also, a great place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. The condo is located on a quiet cul de sac a couple doors down from one of the many pools. We took advantage of the great location of the Monterey Country Club spending some time on nearby El Paseo and visiting the Saturday market at the College of the Desert. There is also a beautiful park with a duck filled pond, a playground and a friendly dog park (we had our 2 dogs with us as well) just down the street.

Nancy was great to work with and helped to make all our last minute plans go smoothly. She was also easy to reach when we had any questions and very accommodating. We have been coming out to the desert for years and have gotten fed up with the overcrowded pools and cramped rooms at the hotels/resorts. We’re so excited to have found such a wonderful rental to spread out and relax in. Can’t wait to come back!!!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This rental was PERFECT! I would highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway with beautiful surroundings. The condo had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We came on a family vacation. Our daughters loved the proximity to the pool and we enjoyed how central it was to everything including local sights like the Living Desert / Zoo and the Aeriel Tramway on our family vacation. The owners were very helpful and made our 1st renting experience easy and pleasant. Thank you!

Monterey condo in gated community

  • 4 of 5

We were extremely comfortable in this well-stocked condo. We had family visit during the month we were there and the loft in particular met our needs. Monterey is centrally located in the valley and we appreciated the close proximity to College of the Desert where we attended several concerts and the street market. We made use of the bicycles and we particularly enjoyed the patio area overlooking the golf course. Our only regret was that the course was underused. The view from the patio to one of the greens was fantastic and we would have enjoyed more action. I would not hesitate to recommend this property as the owners were very accommodating.

Map

Our property is in the middle of everything you could want from the desert! Great shopping, dining, hiking, biking.... Whatever you need is most likely located within a 1 mile radius. We believe this is the best location in the desert!
