Overview

California Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Open the shades on the patio door from the living room and LOOK! Unobstructed, breathtaking view of snow-capped mountains to the south and west, palm trees, grapefruit trees, flowers, greenbelt, shimmering water on the pool, and the moon! You are in wind-free south Palm Springs where the sun shines 340 days per year.

We love this condo because of the open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, and skylights. The rooms are larger than most other complexes. We are on the second floor (no one above) overlooking the beautiful, spacious, fenced-in pool and hot tub. And did we mention the view?

We are within1 mile of parks, groceries, the library, bakery, pharmacy, restaurants, The Chill baseball stadium, and much, much more. Our mornings include a walk across Compadre to the bike/walking paths through Mesquite golf course to Sunrise for coffee and newspaper. We head back through the park and past schools, the library, and churches getting us right back to our condo-2 miles total.

Relax at the pool/spa, golf, hike or play tennis.: Palm Villas is a gated community of 11 buildings with 8 units each, two pools and hot tubs, groomed landscape, tennis courts, BBQ grills, and off-street parking. There are many, friendly year-around residents of all ages, as well as snowbirds like us who return year after year for the great view and weather.

Our covered sunny balcony boasts the best unobstructed view to the south. Look to the west and find palm trees, fruit trees, and more snow-capped mountains. You will notice the beacon on top of the Tram in the evenings and hot air balloons during the day. Hummingbirds enjoy the bright flowers and morning sun. Reach over the rail and pick a grapefruit for breakfast.

There are 120 golf courses in the Coachella Valley with Mesquite Country Club across the street and the Bel Air Greens executive course within walking distance. Check our welcome booklet for our favorite courses, bars, restaurants, shopping areas, etc.

Events and Things to Do: January - Coachella Valley Film Festival

February/March Date Palm Festival - Palm Springs is the Date Palm Capital of the world.

Thursdays - Downtown Street Fair within 2 miles

About Lori

We live in Minnesota and go to Palm Springs to get away from the cold and snow in the winter. We are corn and soybean farmers and spend our leisure time at the Milroy Baseball diamond watching high school and amateur baseball. We also do the upkeep on the field.

We have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a 2-year-old grandson.

Lori purchased this condo in 2011

Why Lori chose California Desert

We loved the 3 bedrooms so our family can visit. The pool is just below our balcony and Mesquite Golf course is just across the street. We have great neighbors who are there year around and some who are seasonal like us.

What makes this condo unique

We have the best view in the Palm Villas complex.

We had a great stay !

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Lori for being so accommodating to us and tending to all details. She was very quick at getting back to us when we sent her a message and we greatly appreciated that. There were 5 adults staying and we felt very comfortable. The view was beautiful and the location was great ! We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Lori.

quiet gated complex with an amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here this summer and boy was it hot! But the condo was nice and cool and the pool was amazing. The condo had every single thing you could think of needing. So close to the airport and a central location to the rest of palm springs. The beds were comfy and the condo felt really big. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. I would love to stay here again.

Clean, well kept, private, safe.

  • 4 of 5

We will look to stay here again on our next trip to Palm Springs. The condo complex was gated, has two pool areas and was very quiet and private feeling. We picked grapefruit off the tree for breakfast. The unit was clean and well stocked with towels, etc. We found everything we needed during our stay. The location was great and convenient to everything. Loved our stay in Palm Springs!

It was great, we had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very spacious. We had a group of 4 and each of us had lots of space to spend together or apart. We cooked in and the kitchen was well stocked. We spend time at the pool, it was quiet and comfortable. It was easy to find and we had all the information we needed to use the condo and the grounds so we didn't have to worry about anything. We would go back again any time.
