Private Homes, Palm Desert Country Club house description

Escape to a totally private backyard oasis in Palm Desert. Palms, jasmine, bougainvillea, oleander, hibiscus, grapefruit and birds-of-paradise surround the newly refinished pool and spa. The yard has areas of full-sun and full-shade plus you can mellow out on the covered patio complete with ceiling fan for those hot afternoons and evenings. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac so you won't be bothered by highway or road noise. And since the home is a block from the golf course (not on the fairway) you won't have golf balls being hit into your lap. Nor do you have to endure golfers oggling you while you suntan or enjoy the pool. The pool, spa and patio are totally private.

Our home was totally remodeled in the past few years with new cabinets, counters, tile, carpeting and paint. Plus all the furnishings, linens and kitchenware are up-to-date.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create gourmet meals and all appliances, cookware, dinnerware (Mikasa) and utensils are high end. There's a big bar b q on the patio and it's natural gas so you don't have to worry about running out of propane halfway through a meal, or driving to a gas station to have the tank refilled.

Nothing ruins a vacation more than a bad sleep on a sub-standard bed. That won't happen in our home as we furnished with top-of-the-line Euro Top deep mattress beds. Plus the pillow/sham combination will offer you three different pillow choices to ensure a great night's sleep.

Relax in the leather recliner or recliner-sofa and watch your favorite high-def shows or movies on the 50' high def TV.. The cable package includes all the high def channels plus a DVR so you can record your favorite shows and movies - and golf tournaments - and watch them at your leisure. We also offer a small movie library for your enjoyment.

The backyard offers total privacy with 4 loungers and a 6 person dining table with chairs. The kidney shape pool and spa are centerpieces for the backyard. And there's lots of pool toys and floats to use. And if you fill up the hummingbird feeder you'll be treated to hours of fun watching them. Sometimes near dusk you'll see 4 or 5 around the feeder at the same time.

KID FRIENDLY! We have a 'Pack 'n Play, booster seat, infant 'safety bath', life vest and child-size plastic dishes for your use while at our home so you don't have to haul it on the plane. (see photos)

The location is great. Our home is located in Palm Desert immediately on the border with La Quinta and Indian Wells. You'll be just a few minutes walk to the Indian Wells Tennis Center and just a couple minutes drive to El Paseo, College of the Desert, Westfield Shopping Center and Old Town La Quinta. There's shopping close by with 4 grocery stores (Albertson's, Ralph's, Stater Bros. and Von's) and a Walmart Supercenter and Costco. All just 5 minutes away.

If you want PRIVACY and PEACE and QUIET - and a beautiful pool all to yourself, our home is absolutely the place for you.

* We also have a 2 bedroom condo for rent in the Monterey Country Club. See VRBO #331636.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: My wife and I fell in love with the desert on our first trip in 2003. We dreamed that one day we would have our own desert paradise. That dream was fulfilled early in 2010 when we found this little gem in the Palm Desert Country Club. We both love to golf, hike and picnic in the desert and Joshua Tree National Park.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Palm Desert Country Club:
              We chose Palm Desert because of it's central location - you're never more than 15 to 20 minutes away from anywhere. We're close to our favorite golf course of Firecliff at Desert Willow; just minutes from our favorite spots to hangout like College of the Desert, El Paseo and the Living Desert. And it's just a short drive to some of the best restaurants around (try Okura Sushi, the Yardhouse at the River, P.F. Chang's at the River and of course, Roy's Hawaiian Fusion.)

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Privacy, privacy, privacy. The backyard kicks butt.
