Seven Lakes condo description
Seven Lakes Country Club is a well-established residential community and private golf club nestled in the heart of South Palm Springs. This quiet location with magnificent mountain views, is just minutes from either downtown Palm Springs or the airport and is the ideal winter retreat.
With a private executive golf course/greenbelt on your doorstep, 7 small lakes and 15 pools & spas, tennis courts, unique mid-century architecture, and glorious landscaping, Seven Lakes offers pretty much everything. This special environment has come to be known by many as the Desert’s Garden of Eden.
Golfers delight in the hand-manicured, executive, 18-hole course designed by Ted Robinson. The layout makes playing fun and challenging no matter what your handicap by emphasizing accuracy with medium and short irons length rather than length. Golfers will play on the same course where famous pros and celebrities have teed off. Johnny Revolta, a PGA Hall of Fame Member was a permanent resident here, and this is also the course where President Dwight D. Eisenhower had his ONLY hole-in-one, and where he played with President Lyndon B. Johnson.
The Club House restaurant and bar offer superb lunches, dinners and buffets, as well as catering services.
The architecture is classic mid-century-modern, built in the early 1960s and designed by Richard Harrison & , the expansive, floor to ceiling, sliding glass walls, huge volume/high ceiling rooms, along with atria, pressed block and shade overhangs are unmatched in the valley. This is also the lowest density residential community in the valley and one of the few private golf courses.
With its sparkling Lakes, San Jacinto mountain vistas and countless mature citrus & palm trees, Seven Lakes captures the beauty of desert golf and the essence of country club living.
THIS CLASSIC, MID-CENTURY HOME COMES WITH the spectacular mountain views that you'd expect in Palm Springs! It is located in the CENTER of the Seven Lakes community, AWAY from highway noise, yet immediately adjacent to parking, and it's under 10 minutes from the airport and 2 minutes from a shopping center & supermarket.
Forty feet of west-facing, floor-to-ceiling, glass walls in the Living Room & Master Bedroom open to give panoramic views of the greenbelt/fairway and beyond that the San Jacinto Mountains. With almost 2,000 square feet of floor space, an open layout, massive amounts of sliding glass 'walls,' clerestory windows, and another 1,000 square feet of patio space, this home maximizes the open, breezy & bright, indoor/outdoor lifestyle of Palm Springs.
Every room (except the baths) has huge, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that open on to the central private courtyard where the fountain can be heard. Ceramic tile flows throughout the main areas to the outdoor patios. The Living Room is huge and suited for comfortable entertaining while watching the golfers or the mountains. Furnishings include antiques, original art oriental rugs, and archeological artifacts. The Dining Room seats 6 easily and is located off the kitchen and living room. Bedrooms have wall to wall carpet. The Library/Den can be used as an office, media room or library and there is a large collection of books in place. The updated Kitchen is fully equipped and includes granite top counters, new appliances & breakfast bar. The Master suite includes a king size bed with Tempur-Pedic mattress, spacious mirrored closets, built-ins, ceiling fan, a separate dressing/desk area, and en-suite Bathroom with renovated shower, good lighting and dual sink vanity. The Guest suite is completely distanced from the Master suite and is composed of a large bedroom with king size bed, huge walk-in closet, and separate full Bath. The large (700 square foot) private courtyard is perfect for entertaining, dining, lounging or even 'clothing-optional' sun bathing.
Your choice of heated pools and spas are 10 seconds walk from the front door, masses of mature citrus trees surround the home, and perhaps the world's best-ever pink grapefruit tree is just outside your front door.
Additional amenities: tankless water heater for those endlessly hot showers, full internet & WiFi capability, TVs with DVDs and extensive cable selections in both bedrooms, stereo, a full-size laundry room, one car enclosed garage & additional adjacent parking and a security gate that is manned 24 hrs every day.
PLUS A BONUS OF:
$100/MONTH CLUBHOUSE RESTAURANT CREDIT.

Seven Lakes – Great golf course, low density, lots of privacy, pool and hot tub never crowded, always clean and lovely people. Our hosts – definitely the best in the valley. The unit itself – perfect for us, our family and other guests who came and did not want to leave. We also didn’t want to leave, but another renter was moving in after us. Our hosts helped make our stay fabulous. They were a phone call away and responded immediately whenever we had any minor problems. Sometimes the pictures on the VRBO site look better than the real thing. Not in this case. The place is actually nicer than what you see. Great artwork, lovely furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and what you don’t see is the dozens of orange and grapefruit trees surrounding the house. Fresh squeezed juice every morning and the same every evening, sometimes with a little vodka. We’ll be back!

We enjoyed our time & will be returning next year!
Clearly Mary and I enjoyed our time at your place during February, 2013 as we have reserved our spot for 2 months again next year. We are looking forward to our time there even though it is several months away. We found your place to be very comfortable for us and the part-time guests that we had. The clean, large space inside and outside the house was very pleasant to use. The weather of course is outstanding in Palm Springs for us from Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Although I am generally not that interested in golfing I found that the executive course with the flexible playing schedules operated by the club’s professionals was fun and the time commitment was not that large. As a result I will probably play several times next year. The fact that the airport is so close was very handy for us to pick up and deliver our various guests. My wife has food allergies that must be looked after in a diligent manner and the staff at the club restaurant were careful and attentive. As a result we could just go to eat there with confidence any time we did not want to cook ourselves........which was quite often , very convenient. We did like the sun in the courtyard in the morning and on the patio in the afternoon. The outside privacy of the courtyard is definitely appreciated.The heated pool and the hot tub were used by us and our guests and was a bit of a hit with some and simply enjoyed by others. Getting food supplies was easy as there are three supermarkets nearby with good selection. We believe you have a good place at reasonable rates.

Great place to stay.
Great place to stay.
Great place and great location. A good place for walking. We would walk around the complex and walk on the trails outside the complex which are close. I would highly recommend it to anyone. (55 or older) The view is spectactular. The owners live nearby and are available for any questions and were very helpful regarding the area. The people in the compex are very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the clubhouse and restaurant. We enjoyed the pools which were heated and not crowed and were a good length for swimming. We will be back.
