Welcome to VILLA VACANZA at Desert Falls Country Club in beautiful Palm Desert, California. I am pleased to offer you, for your consideration, my recently renovated vacation home; a place that I have to come to think of, as pretty special. The first thing that impresses my guests when they arrive, is how bright, airy, and spacious the condo feels. There is a terrific open flow to the space that also extends out into the south facing patio and onto the common greens and pool area. I envisioned and arranged the villa to be the perfect getaway for a couple or two.
There are two en suite MASTER BEDROOMS: each with new furnishings, and new linens; each with new carpeting and tile; each with built-in walk-in closets; each with 40” HDTV flat screens, Blu ray players and of course, cable. Also, each bedroom, has a set of two new luxurious bathrobes for your lounging needs ;)
In the DEN, there is a new 50” Samsung Smart HDTV, with a Blu ray player, and a Skype Camera. The TV is connected, wirelessly, to the internet and to a TimeWarner cablebox for your viewing pleasure. There are also numerous DVD’s and CD’s stocked. If you’re interested in the fun and intrigue (or drama in my family!) of board games, I’ve included: Trivial Pursuit, Balderdash, Dominoes, Train, Monopoly, Scrabble, Chess, Crib, Backgammon and Poker. In addition, there are boxed puzzles, which was something of a hit on recent cruises I’ve taken.
MUSIC has always been an important part of my life; certainly something I would take with me on a holiday, and I wanted my guests to have choices when it came to playing music. There is a Bose stereo system in the living room that connects with Apple products, and a CD/MP3/FM/AM stereo in the den, as well as a computer with speakers, in the kitchen, from which you can stream music. There are also numerous music channels on all the TV’s.
Speaking of the KITCHEN, it is fully stocked, with new dishes, pots (both small and very large) new cutlery, glassware, linens and Tupperware. This kitchen is very cool…all the cupboards below the counters, have pull out shelving on rollers….very easy access! There is even a folding ironing board. I have provided a new Keurig coffee machine, a Delonghi Espresso maker, as well as a French Press and the familiar drip coffee maker. Included also, is a Braun Mixmaster, a Cuisinart Hand Blender, a commercial grade blender that makes wicked margaritas, a panini maker, and a new 20” Samsung HDTV so you won’t miss a moment of your favourite show while making that wicked margarita. There are lots of spices, oils, vinegars, condiments (including HP!!), baking supplies including flour and sugar and various types of sweeteners, that are labelled and stocked for your use. The kitchen also has a breakfast eating area and a work desk, where I have installed a computer for your use. The fridge, dishwasher and stove are all new stainless steel Samsung products as of 2014.
The PATIO is incredibly peaceful with great vistas of the pool, the greens, palm trees and mountaintops. It is south facing, with both sunny and shady areas throughout the day. There is a new gas BBQ with fridge and generous granite countertops, with lots of cooking utensils (stocked in the kitchen) and new designer plastic patio dishware and cutlery. I arranged the patio into two areas: one with a dining table with seating for 6 and one with two club chairs and ottomans- perfect for reading and relaxing.
The Pool is heaven! It is one of the largest in Desert Falls, perfect for laps and for floating (on any one of a number of floaties avail) with perhaps a margarita in hand? (sensing a theme here?) I have provided pool towels, towel clips (for the loungers) and sunscreen.
I wanted the living room to be the social hub of the condo. Purposefully, I put no TV there. Instead, you will find an open room with very comfortable furnishings, decorated with neutral tones of the desert, and hints of the emerald greens and the turquoise blues viewable from out of the window vistas. Also, there is a great built- in bar for your entertaining needs.
Feel free to phone anywhere within USA, including USVI and Puerto Rico, and to Canada at no charge. There are five remote phones located throughout the villa.
I created a go-to manual, printed and laminated, for you to use during your stay, that references great restaurants, shopping, activities and much needed information regarding all your needs while staying at Villa Vacanza.
Thank you for your interest; please have a look at the accompanying photos and video. Any inquires and questions can be made to the email address provided, and will be met with a prompt reply. I hope that you consider Villa Vacanza in your travel plans to sunny Palm Desert!
