About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Palm Valley Country Club is a real jewel of a complex. It is home to a World Class Club House, the largest in the desert (100,000 sq ft) with 2 restaurants and bar lounge. Don't forget to take advantage of the Friday Night Pasta Night. Made to order pasta dishes, salads and more, $22, all you can eat. Reservations are required and proper dress. 760-345-2737.

Times vary with seasons. The complex is gated with 24 hour patrolling security and is located just 2 miles from the Marriott Desert Springs Hotel and just 6 miles from 'The River' which hosts great restaurants, entertainment and shopping. You are within minutes of the famous desert's 'El Paseo Drive' noted for exquisite shopping and dining. Palm Springs is 14 miles away and has the Thursday Night Street Fair all year. The College of the Desert Street Fair 5 miles away, hosts one also all year, Sat and Sun.

My end unit 1652 sq ft condo (3BR/2BA) is turn key with everything you need. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make your gourmet meal except your food. Spices, oils, condiments, salad dressings there for you. All is constantly updated for added guest comfort. Your turnkey stay Includes foil, saran wrap, ziplocks, coffee filters for your convenience. Guests provide their own food. For added security and ease, I have installed keyless entry locks and program in a code specific to you and delete codes from other renters before your arrival. No keys!

A four waterfall lake on the 8th green of PVCC Challenger Course is your stunning view and it can be enjoyed from the living room, dining room, kitchen or spacious outdoor patio which has a convection barbecue. Enjoy a cool drink on the patio while taking in the golfers teeing off in front of you. Condo is southeast facing so you get the morning sun on the patio, in kitchen, DR and LR. Sun in the afternoon is on the second patio off the Master BR.

The Master BR has a king bed, attached bath, 26" flat screen TV/DVD combo and an attached private patio with comfortable furniture and umbrella. The 2nd BR has a queen, attached to a bath and 26" wall mounted flat screen TV/DVD combo. The 3rd BR has two twin beds and a 19" flat screen TV/DVD combo. A queen size elevated air mattress is provided with all bedding for additional guests up to 8 maximum.

The living room is spacious and open to the dining room and kitchen with surrounding bar seating for easy entertainment. Over the LR fireplace is a 40' Sony Big Screen. The fireplace was redone 10/13. Ceiling fans are in every bedroom and Living Room. There is a full size laundry in the home.

Free WIFI access for your laptop.

The nearest pool/jacuzzi is across the street, opposite my garage. Another pool/jacuzzi is 100 yards away. Pool rafts, pool toys are in the garage for your stay's enjoyment, along with 7 bikes w/helmets and locks on site for your enjoyment. Bike two miles to the Marriott, then enjoy a boat ride (this is the Marriott with the lake which comes into the lobby) to a restaurant of your choice. I can highly recommend the lobby sushi bar for sashimi. The lobby is so comfortable with couch seating and many big screen TV's. Very relaxing and a perfect memory! Fisherman's Wharf is also in the Marriott and has great food and daily Happy Hour, time varies with the season. This is part of the family of restaurants known as Fisherman's Market and Grill. It is one of my favorite places to eat every time I am in the desert, Fred Waring and Town Center in the Trader Joes Center. We also enjoy Shanghai Reds in Indian Wells. Wonderful outside happy hour 4-6pm. Nice breeze, great service and food $5-$8. My new favorite place, Bucatinis on the corner of Cook and Gerald Ford. Happy hour everyday from 3-6pm. Fabulous food, service and prices. GrubHub another option. Delivery cleared thru security. My two favorite free delivery restaurants, PF Changs and Firehouse Subs.

Being a teacher of 37 years, now retired as of June 2012, I take much pride in taking care of my home and caring about my renter's needs. I fully manage my property and personally clean my home. I approach this with thinking, if I was the renter, I would expect it to be so clean, equipped, and displayed online accurately. For the last 15 years, I have been gratefully able to donate my condo to many charities: Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer (Nov 2018 will be my 15th year) , Tour de Pink a 200 mile bike ride from Santa Barbara to Encinitas raising $ for the fight against breast cancer, Riverside County Foster Kid's Program 5X, Christian Women's Ministries 6X, High School Athletic Programs-Football, Wrestling, High School Band and Drama, High School Special Education Scholarship Fund, Down's Syndrome Association 10X , Autistic Children's Foundation, 2X, 4X, Michelle's Place a Breast Cancer Resource Center In Temecula, AYSO supporting a past elementary student of mine, Inspirz Kids 2X which supports foster children's after school activities , Toys for Tots 2X, and Pt. Loma of Nazareen University Nursing Program.

Thanks for reading my site.

About Pamela Kerr

Hi, it's so nice to meet you. Thanks for reading my listing. I have owned my home in PVCC since 9/2002 and am very pleased with the complex, security and HOA. I am presently as of June 2012, a retired teacher after teaching 37 years. I live in Temecula which is 65 miles from this home in Palm Desert. I manage and take care of all the cleaning and upkeep of the home. This is important to me as I personally want to know everything there is exceptional for my renters.

Pamela Kerr purchased this condo in 2002

Why Pamela Kerr chose Palm Desert

Palm Valley is a beautiful place. The landscaping is unbelievable, a real pleasing sight and it is all year. After owning for 16 years, I continue to be amazed at the unbelievable upkeep the HOA and PVCC does to keep Palm Valley Country Club at the top of the list of properties desired either as a rental or as a property to buy. I bought my home here as my retirement home for sometime in the future. I chose this location as this home has a beautiful 4 waterfall lake view and the home is large enough to accommodate family and guests. I also bought it because of its location to the pool across the street and another pool 100 yards away.

What makes this condo unique

This home is truly a "Slice of Heaven on Earth!"

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a lovely 4 days at host Pamela's house in Palm Springs. The house is modern, well equipped, and a great fit for up to 8 adults. Property is quiet and secure (within a country club).

Owner is very responsive and helpful - would highly recommend!

Beautiful Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay in Pamela's beautiful, well maintained home in Palm Valley Country Club. The location on the 8th hole with its four waterfalls is beautiful. We spent many mornings having coffee on the patio and evenings grilling our dinner. We enjoy having the pool across the street. We spent many hours swimming, soaking in the hot tub and reading by the pool. The central location is convienent to all of our activities in Palm Desert. Pamela makes every effort to ensure we have an enjoyable stay. We recommend her home for your desert vacation. John W

Our Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We love coming to Palm Desert with our family to enjoy the weather and to relax. This home has everything you need for a great vacation. The pool is right across the street and the view from the patio is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

Relaxing Palm Desert Vacation

We have stayed many times in this beautiful desert home. This trip was a girls weekend away. We had a wonderful time relaxing around the home and pool. My girl Friends think I'm the greatest hostess ever because I brought them here.

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family weekend at this townhome! The owner was so great at communication and had everything you could want there for us to use! It was a very convenient location and close to store and restaurants with lots of selections.

The best part was how quiet and tranquil the resort is. We enjoyed the weekend with our young adults and teenage children. There was plenty of room for all five of us and we could have had a few more. The pool is right there steps away. No one was in the pool the entire stay. We felt like we had a private resort. It was fun to just to relax and not be on our phones and tech, but there is wifi and movie channels too! There are bikes, rafts, and towels already available. Everything was thoughtfully thought of by the owner. We made dinner and all our meals with ease in this well stocked and thought out kitchen, The BBQ was a plus and the patio is wonderful! Even in the hottest months, it is still a nice place to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Close enough to drive to local attractions. We hit a bucket of balls at a near by driving range that was very reasonable, went bowling, swam at night, so very fun. We did a day trip to Palm Springs one of the days. Everything was perfect, we will definitely stay again! Good fit for Families or couples. Great get away to the dessert.

Loved My Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property is very well-maintained. There are lots of little touches that make you feel welcome and add to your stay. I appreciated the basket with menus and other flyers of places to see and dine. The kitchen is well-stocked with basics needed if you decide to cook. A pool is right across the street, and there were floats in the garage to use. Beautiful view from the back patio, and was very quiet. Definitely a great place to kick back and relax, or enjoy the sights. We took in the Palm Springs street market since we were there Thursday night. Pamela was a gracious hostess, and got back to me quickly with my questions. Definitely a place I will stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a great review. It is very appreciated. My home is a wonderful peaceful place with a great view and close to a pool. I work hard to make my renters feel comfortable with their stay. I supply little things that one might have forgotten and information on local restaurants and things to do in the desert. The Palm Springs Street Fair is always a nice stroll to see local artists at work. I look forward to working with you on your next visit.

My property does not include golf, tennis or fitness center memberships. PVCC has two private golf courses belonging to American Golf Association. Reciprocal golf priviledges are allowed depending on the level of your American Golf membership. Even though PVCC is a private golf resort, renters can golf on PVCC courses on Mondays when reserving through Standby Golf. I do not own a fitness/tennis membership as even if owned, it still requires guests to pay a fee of $18 per day to use the facilities. AOS Fitness is 2 miles away and has monthly memberships for $9.99, no contract. If you are over 65, they honor Silver Sneakers, which gives the ability to use the facility for free. I highly recommend this option. However, if you purchase a spa service at Palm Valley CC, fitness center and all spa facilities can be used with no charge for the same day. I have never been disappointed with the services of their spa.
