This private club sits on 380 lush acres just south of Country Club Drive between Cook Street and Eldorado Drive in Palm Desert with 902 condominium homes. Each home has a unique golf course or lake view. The dominant landscape theme is water: lakes and waterfalls surrounded by green lawns, shade and ornamental trees and accented by desert flowers. The Lakes Country Club is adjacent the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort where you can walk to their on site Starbucks, show the kids the ponds full of pink flamingos and swans, or spend an evening dining in one of their fabulous restaurants - be sure to get to your dinner reservation half an hour early so that you can be taken by boat from inside the hotel lobby through an opening in a magnificent glass wall and out across their lake to the restaurant of your choosing.
The Lakes CC is also adjacent to a shopping plaza with a Ralphs grocery store, a pharmacy, restaurants (including the local favorite - The Cork Tree), shipping services, and many other conveniences.
There are numerous world-class golf courses all within minutes of this convenient location.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are the Smed Family - Chad, Nanci & Tabitha. We live in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy traveling to Palm Desert to spend time with family and friends. The Lakes CC has everything to keep the young and old entertained and relaxed. We hope you will consider staying in our vacation rental the next time your travels bring you to the beautiful Coachella Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Lakes Country Club: We selected the Lakes CC for the spaciousness of the units, private patios, gorgeous landscaping and because of the many beautiful pools. It is also close to El Paseo for fabulous designer shopping and many of our favorite hiking spots and golf courses.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The trillium shaped pool and spa just over the footbridge from the rear patio rarely is used by other guests, and will feel like your own private water sanctuary. The pool deck is situated within one of the larger lakes, making it feel like a tropical island. Take a dip, or sunbathe while watching the white egrets float past the spray fountains and babbling water features.
