Desert Island Country Club condo description

Casa McCloy is part of the Desert Island Golf and Country Club. Enjoy the adjacent pool and jacuzzi, relax by the 25 acre lake or take advantage of local shopping and tourist attractions.
Sit on the balcony overlooking a lake, sip on your favorite beverage and enjoy your home away from home. Casa McCloy has all that you need to relax in a bit of luxury. The heated pool and hot tub are next to the building. They are surrounded by flowers and overlook the lake, swans, snowy egrets, and manicured lawns. There are also rest rooms and a shower in the area.
Whether it's hiking, golfing, tennis, fine dining, shopping on Rancho Mirage's version of 'Rodeo Drive' or visiting other local attractions, you will find the right balance between relaxing and enjoying your favorite local activities, or in the nearby Palm Springs, Coachella Valley area.
Of course this is a golfers (269 courses) and tennis (26 public or semi private courts) paradise, but taking a Jeep Adventure tour through the San Andreas Fault, or exploring nearby Joshua Tree National Park will give you a new perspective of the desert, now and in the past.
There are hikes to native american dwellings. Of course a must-see is the Palm Springs themselves. This is a hike through a real oasis with date palms and cool pools. On a hot day we just go, sit and enjoy the natural cool.
The condo is pure luxury with breathtaking views out every window. There is a huge feathered sectional, stuffed chairs, large flatscreen TV/DVD and fire place in the living room. The Large Master Suite features a California King, a full bath, dual sinks with shower and a separate tub. It also has a flat screen TV and DVD. The second bedroom has a King Bed that can be made into two Twins. It's bathroom has a shower, sink and shower. There are toilet and shower support bars for safety.
Casa McCloy sleeps 4 but when the grandchildren come, my wife and I are very comfortable on the living room sectional. Extra pillows, sheets and blankets are available in the linen closet.
The kitchen is fully appointed to make either your desert 'high season' (November thru April) or your one week vacation extremely comfortable.
A washer and dryer are in the condo for your comfort and convenience.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: My mother moved from this tranquil respite to Bellevue Washington in her last years to be close to us. Her health was poor. She was a competitive golfer until age 80 when she decided to play just for fun. I am a Professional Senior Housing Consultant so we found her a great place, but unfortunately it wasn't Desert Island. In a very few years when my wife and I retire, we will move there. We love it for the same reasons my mother did and our guests do. It is like being in Hawaii but still close to the family.

Why Desert Island Country Club:
Casa McCloy was my mothers dream home. She grew up and spent 32 years of her life in the Hawaiian Islands. Desert Island is as close as she could come to duplicating her way of life in the islands. It had warmth, friendly people, beautiful flowers, water all around, green grass and SUN. No, the California beaches don't have anywhere as much fun in the sun as Rancho Mirage does. The main thing for her was easy access to her family. As you will see she had impeccable taste in decor, comfort and color. Truly it is 'living Aloha' without an across the sea voyage.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Breathtaking views from all 3rd floor windows of lakes, landscaped flower gardens, golf course and the mountains that light up in sunrise and sunset. Oh, and clean air. Breathe deep, that is air!
