Why Tom chose Palm Springs, South

I decided to purchase in Desert Skies once I saw how beautiful, and well maintained the grounds are. The mid-century architecture really interests me as well. I really like how peaceful, and quiet it is here. The unit is away from the street, so there is minimal street noise, and offers beutiful views of the mountains from every window, along with pool and spa views.

What makes this condo unique

Stunning views

Quiet location of unit

Soundproofing walls between units

Beautifully landscaped and well kept grounds

2 pools and 1 spa (1 heated)

Gas BBQ grill

2 Rec rooms

On-Site Laundry

Nearby Hiking and Golfing

Guestbook comments from the manager

H i Tom/Brian,

So it's time for us to leave. Days went by very quickly. We will be leaving tomorrow morning as soon as we are ready, maybe at around 9 a.m. Thank you very much for offering us your place. We have stayed at many different places, but your condo was the best as far as " the feeling like at home" goes. Things on the desk (pen,pencil, elastics, etc), all the items in the closet, coasters on each bed side, we could feel the thoughtfulness of the hosts. We certainly made use of the ice pak every day. Also, Brian, thanks for recommending to us to visit Joshua Tree National Park. This has become the high light of our trip this time. We have learnt a lot of geography and the plants in this harsh desert living. We also enjoyed the blue sky and the mountain view every day from the MB. The nice music has also certainly helped!

PERFECTION!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 month this year living at Tom and Brian's place and I'm not sure i can say enough nice things. The views are stunning, the neighborhood and complex itself are incredibly safe, quiet, peaceful. And Palm Springs is one of my new favorite places- EVER. Tom is a fantastic host, who is really committed to offering a great place, and great service to his renters. A truly lovely person who is both totally available, and completely respectful. The unit itself was (literally) spotless, stocked with everything you need even for a long term stay, with really nice quality furnishings, quality pots and pans, super fast WIFI, a great TV- a real home away from home. The property and grounds are extremely well maintained. The pools were always lovely and clean, the laundry facilities were spotless, the neighbors are quiet and friendly. I absolutely loved it here and will cross my fingers I need to return again!!

HIKERS- this is paradise:) Indian Canyons are a 20 minute stroll from the apartment!!

FELLOW LADY TRAVELERS- if you're traveling on your own, this spot is perfection. Safe, quiet, and super comfortable. I lived in the complex for 3 months and highly, highly HIGHLY recommend.

This one is exactly as awesome, and beautiful as it looks in the pictures. Don't hesitate to rent if you're in the area.

Owner's Response: Heather, Happy Holidays! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. That was very nice and sweet of you. So many people read and rely on reviews, so its nice to see when a tenant takes the time to sit down and write one as nice as yours. Looking forward to seeing you again someday. All the best to you in the year! Tom and Brian

WHAT A GREAT PLACE THIS IS - BOTH THE UNIT AND THE COMPLEX!!!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are beautiful with the desert landscape, fruit trees, and mountain views. The unit was spotless and had everything needed and more. I can understand why there are so many great reviews. Tom was great from the moment I contacted him, to receiving my security deposit refund after my stay.

We stayed in August, and yes it was HOT! (We were remodeling our home and was in need of somewhere comfortable and safe to stay.) Fortunately, the unit had great working ACs and being close to the mountain, the sun would disappear a lot earlier than it would in the rest of the valley. It really helped to cool down and was a great time to enjoy the 2 outdoor pools, or even a nice walk or hike. Not far is a large supermarket, great restaurants, gyms, a yoga/pilates studio, banks, dry cleaners, etc.

The highlights were the comfy big bed, fully stocked kitchen, the games, books, and DVDs to enjoy, and the quiet of the complex. Everyone here was very friendly and wouldn't hesitate to answer any questions we might have had about the area, where to dine, and what to see.

Thanks for a great stay!

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING, AND THE BEST PART IS ITS CLOSE TO THE MOUNTAIN, SO AT 5:00 PM YOU START GETTING SHADE, WHILE THE REST OF THE VALLEY IS IN DIRECT SUN, YOU GET TO ENJOY THE EVENING A FEW HOURS EARLY !

AS FOR THE UNIT, CUTE, WELL FURNISHED, KITCHEN HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO EAT OUT ALL THE TIME. ONLY DOWNSIDE TO KITCHEN IS COFFEE POT HAD NO SETTING TO MAKE STRONG COFFEE!

EVERYTHING ELSE GOOD, ALSO A BBQ BY THE 2ND POOL, MADE IT NICE SO YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO COOK IN THE CONDO !

ALSO, A BIG PLUS FOR ME, IT WAS A MATURE CROWD, NO SCREAMING KIDS IN THE POOL ! NEIGHBORS ALL VERY FRIENDLY ! A POOL WHERE YOU CAN TRULY RELAX !

First time spending a month in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay. The pictures were right on the money. We didn't have our car as we took the Amtrak, so we rented bicycles for the month and also got a seniors bus pass for the transit. We were close to everything and if we weren't, who cares!! The owner Tom was so helpful with any of our questions. Would we stay here again, you bet !!

Lovely Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of January, 2015 at this lovely little gem and found it to be perfect for two people. The description and pictures on line fit to a tee. We found the condo to be very clean with every type of cleaning supply included. There were plenty of extra sheets, blankets, comfy towels and a fantastically comfortable king sized bed. The kitchen was very well stocked with lots of different knives, pots, pans and dishes to suit every need and the cutest little dishwasher. Two tvs with a wide selection of DVDs were a bonus. We really appreciated having free phone calls to the US and Canada as well as free WiFi. The suite was very bright, stylishly decorated with lovely views of the mountains across the street. The complex itself was very quiet with two nice pools, a hot tub and a nice, safe walk to the downtown area. We found the permanent residents to be quiet and friendly and met some wonderful guests. Communication from Tom is terrific and he does everything he can to make your stay a relaxing and wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

A wonderful desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the desert - we were fascinated by the scenery. We spent the month of April basking in the heat of the sun by the pool and enjoying the comfort of this lovely second floor unit. Everything we needed was provided from storage, to cooking facilities to TV and Wifi. Two great ceiling fans in combination with AC kept the temperature comfortable on the hotter days - we had at least two days above 100 degrees. We enjoyed shopping at the local supermarkets (always try to find a Trader Joes where ever we go) and were able to keep the fridge well stocked. We had take-out from a Greek and an Indian restaurant and were glad to see our favourite Dominos Pizza. We kept in touch with Tom via emails and finally got to meet him in person towards the end of the month. Would definitely recommend this condo and would like to come back some time.
