About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Why Is This Place So Special..???

Our completely remodeled 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, 1814 square foot condo is the nicest rental in DFCC. From our condo, you can walk out the sliding door to the large, lovely patio, which is just 10 steps from the largest pool in Desert Falls Country Club, in a very quiet peaceful area, in the interrior of this complex, not near any exterrior road. The pool and pool decking were completely re-done, so the pool is fantastic. Our patio faces northwest for warm afternoon sun, views of palm trees, pool, and the snow-capped San Jacinto mountains beyond.

We have completely remodeled our kitchen with classy upgrades. It is complete with new cabinets, granite countertops, large sink, dishes and appliances.

Our living room has a 42-inch plasma TV with HDMI DVD/VCR and brand new furniture. All bedrooms also equipped with TVs and DVD players.

Enjoy our leather recliner and foot rest or sit in one of 2 new sofa's to relax while watching one of 5 complimentary HBO channels or other cable television.

All 3 bedrooms have new furniture, furnishings and window treatments as well.

Our 3 bathrooms all feature new granite countertops, wood cabinetry, extra large showers, new toliets and stone tile flooring.

Our place is GREAT for families as we have 5 nice bikes you can use, and 5 pool floats (3 great ones and 3 blow-ups) to use on the GIANT pool. We also have set of golf irons, childs float ring, float/tire pumps (electric and hand styles), 20 lb dumbells, and 3 water guns for the pool.



Feel free to use our washer and dryer as well.

Rental includes free access to Desert Falls Country Club’s 9 lighted tennis courts, fitness facility, and clubhouse. Pay as you play golf access available at the Desert Falls Country Club course, voted one of the top 10 courses in the desert by the SCPGA. Come enjoy your stay at Desert Falls Country Club, one of the best places in the desert for golf, tennis, swimming or just plain relaxing.

The Clubhouse has a wonderful workout rooms with updated cardio fitness machines (with TV's) and new weight equipment.

Our condo is not for smokers or party folks. We rent to people that will enjoy our place, but not ruin it for future guests or our neighbors.

With all of these great and excellent features, it places our condo as the best looking rental unit in all of the Desert Falls Community.

About Nels Hawkinson

I grew up in California and needed a FUN place to return to from time to time to get away from the grey skies of Seattle. My family of four loves it in Palm Desert with so many fun things to do, places to eat and of course the awesome sunshine.

We are a very athletic family and love to play most sports. We love our dog Tucker, but he is not allowed to come to Palm Desert.

Nels Hawkinson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Nels Hawkinson chose Deserts

We had rented condos at Desert Falls Country Club a few times before and fell in love with this great development. We waited and then finally bought at one of the best locations in DFCC. We have enjoyed updating the condo, so our family and our guests will have a wonderful experience there. The tennis and golf here is wonderful. Their workout room is pretty special as well!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is big and spacious and we love our remodeling we have done. The bedrooms and bathrooms look better than hotel suites. We have 5 bikes, nice pool floats, set of golf irons, and now a brand new pool(the biggest) right outside our door. Our stone top (6 person) table is a fun place to sit and eat while watching the sun set over the mountains on our large patio.

The Best Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The VRBO ad says this is the 'Best' place to stay and they aren't lying! It is fabulous! The owners are unbelievably nice, the condo is large, beautifully appointed, immaculate and the location by the pool is magnificent. This was our eighth or ninth year coming here and we can't wait to come back. Perfection!

Absolutely fabulous...again

  • 5 of 5

Third time we spent a month long vacation in this beautiful condo. Everything was as great as we remembered. Pool was still SO close. It was a big enough to play around with kids and also good for swimming. Very quiet in the summertime. Almost private pool. Amazing views from patio. Great to have bbq in the evenings. Bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen etc. everything has all you need. Fast wi-fi, lots of tv channel all you need you got it. We love Palm Desert area and Desert Falls is the great place to spend your vacation. Nels' place is fantastic. We want to come back again...

Our family just got back from 7 days in this beautiful condo! To be brief - Kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed, pool was a football's throw from Nels' back patio (literally), super clean, very comfortable beds, tons of grass space right outside the back door for our girls to do cartwheels on, great BBQ, awesome floaties for the pool, a couple balls to toss around....It lacked NOTHING and would highly recommend this unit to anyone. We use VRBO all the time because we travel with 3 kids and don't fit in a typical hotel room. Nels' place was a step above the rest!

Fabulous Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying in this condo. The owners are wonderful to work with. The condo is exactly as pictured in the photos, immaculate, and the proximity to the pool can't be beat. I would definitely recommend this as the best place to stay.

It is the Best Place to Rent in Desert Falls

  • 5 of 5

The listing is exactly as described and presented in the photographs. The owner, Nels, was very quick to respond to our initial inquiry and also to our followup e-mails. He was very patient as we sorted out our travel plans. I will definitely recommend this property to friends visiting the Palm Desert area. We have stayed in Desert Falls about 3 or 4 times previously and this unit was by far the best! We enjoyed the large pool, steps from the condo, as well as the fitness facility and tennis courts.
