Silver Sands condo description
Our home is designed to provide you with a comfortable environment where you can unwind, put your feet up, and relax in a friendly atmosphere. The one-level, free standing house/condo is extremely quiet and private, surrounded by a large private wrap-around walled courtyard, trimmed with desert landscaping and accent lighting.
If you’re like us, your day might go like this: Wake up to a spectacular sunrise over Marriott’s flagship Desert Springs Resort just out your front door, then take a quick dip in your private heated spa before reading the paper as you sip your morning coffee in your enclosed front courtyard. After a set of tennis or round of golf, return for a soak in the swimming pool, just steps away from the rear patio. Then come back and fire up the grill to cook those steaks you’ve been waiting for, and enjoy a delightful dinner on the back courtyard, looking out to the snowcapped mountains framing the evening sunset. After dinner a nightcap by the gas fireplace in the living room is the perfect way to end the day. Life is good!
Your two bedroom / two bath detached condominium is tastefully decorated, comfortable and inviting. It has that “put your feet up and relax awhile” feel. Your home is fully stocked with all the amenities necessary to ensure a pleasant stay including flat screen televisions, stereo system, digital cable, Internet & Wi-Fi.
The open floor plan with vaulted ceiling and wrap around windows provides a bright airy atmosphere and frame spectacular views of snow capped mountains and great sunsets. The dining table seats six and there is comfortable seating in the living room, next to the fireplace, on an over-stuffed love seat and large sofa. There are ceiling fans in every room.
The kitchen opens to the living area and is separated by a counter with two stools, the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee while watching the news on the kitchen's flat screen television.
Both bedrooms have private baths and dressing rooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The second bedroom, with a queen size sleep sofa, doubles as a den with comfortable seating for all, a wide screen TV, well stocked library, and computer work station.
Your house is surrounded by a private courtyard, landscaped with desert plants and accent lighting, the perfect setting for outdoor dining. A gas patio heater will take the chill off the cool desert evenings. The huge 2-car garage is perfect for storage.
Silver Sands Racquet Club is a wonderful gated community offering privacy not usually found in a condo development. There are 15 pools, 8 lighted tennis courts, and a newly expanded club house. An on-site tennis pro is available from October to May. Your home-away-from-home will be quiet and peaceful as Silver Sands has a very unique atmosphere, not normally found in the desert. Step out your front door to your private, enclosed courtyard to relax in your very own hot tub; or wind your way to the back courtyard which fronts on one of the many greenbelts in the complex.
But what would a vacation be without a little fun! Your home-away-from-home is close to wonderful restaurants, public golf courses, and incredible shopping. Several casinos offer gaming, great restaurants, and well known popular entertainment. El Paseo, the “Rodeo Drive of the Desert”, is a five minute drive with its world class shopping and art galleries. Located adjacent to Marriott’s Desert Springs, you can walk to dine in one of its five restaurants or enjoy a sushi lunch in its popular lobby bar. For the golfers in your party, we are surrounded by several public courses including the renowned Desert Willow Resort. Cultural amenities abound including the Palm Springs Art Museum, McCallum Performing Arts Center, the Living Desert, or come in April for the La Quinta Arts Festival. Taking a winter break? Take the Tram to the top of Mt. Jacinto for sledding or cross country skiing, or ski downhill at Big Bear, just an hour away.

The property was clean, airy and comfortable. The owner was very quick in responding and very helpful in anyway possible, and the transaction also was smooth. The condo was located close to everything and convenient, equipped with many empty swimming pools and a world class tennis courts with a pro. My family would recommend this property to anybody who wants to stay in Palm Desert area. Thank you Donald!

Just a quick note to say thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely condo, the spa was a lovely bonus. We've enjoyed our stay very much. Your housekeeper was very helpful. The electronics systems worked great. The mattress was very comfortable, (always important), the sheets good. The kitchen and appliances were all fine although we would probably say that it's time for a new stove. Aside from that everything was great. We would not be reluctant to come again. Thanks for everything,

Great girls getaway!
Great girls getaway!
My sister and I stayed at this condo last year, a sisters-retreat and wonderful get away from the weather. The house had everything we could want, it was very comfortable, furnished nicely, with all the amentities needed for a relaxing stay. This was the perfect place, quiet, peaceful, and yet close to so many great restaurants, fabulous shopping, (what's a girl to do!), and entertainment. We even walked to the Marriott Resort, just next door for a Sushi lunch. We used the private hot tub every day, ate lunch and dinner in the enclosed courtyard, and enjoyed after dinner drinks as we watched the sun set over the mountains. The layout of this complex is very unusual, each house is very private, you hardly knew there were neighbors. The walled courtyard surrounding the house adds so much, we spent most of our time outdoors. There was a heated pool just a few steps from our back patio but we hardly saw anyone. It was like having our own private pool. We will definitely be back.

About the owner: We live on the coast of Maine and escape to Silver Sands whenever we get the chance, especially during the cold Maine winter. While we are in Palm Desert we keep a photo of our snow covered Maine farm house on the living room table to remind us (and you) why we love the desert! This photo is not exactly Maine but we do travel extensivly and always come back to Silver Sands. We think you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Silver Sands:
After vacationing at Marriott’s Desert Springs Resort for several years we decided Palm Desert would be an ideal vacation/ retirement community, so why not move next door to Silver Sands Racquet Club! The area has so many wonderful things to offer as you enjoy your holiday. We couldn’t be happier. We are willing to bet you will be too. Our house comes complete with concierge service. Give us a call and we will tell you the best places to eat, where to shop, and generally have the time of your life. One of the best features of Silver Sands is the privacy it offers. Coming from rural Maine we are used to wide open spaces with a lot of privacy. Here you have the benefit of beautiful landscaped areas, plenty of green space, spectacular views, friendly neighbors, and yet, your private courtyards give you all the privacy you could want.
