Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: We purchased this condo as a vacation rental property. We are Californian couple who love the Palm Springs area and love the mid-century architecture in Palm Springs.

Why the Owner Chose Canyon Corridor, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
The location of Desert Skies is excellent. The complex is beautiful & historical. South Palm Canyon is one of the most desirable, wind free areas of Palm Springs. Quiet, safe, intimate 38 units. You're less than 5 minutes to the bustling downtown area shops, restaurants, and museums. You're only 20 minutes away from Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Desert Hot Springs and La Quinta. The gorgeous San Jacinto Mountains and hiking trails are a walking distance from the condo.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Biking, jogging, horseback riding, rides on the tramway, Villagefest (street fair) Thursday nights, museums, Joshua tree National Park (hiking & rock climbing). Excellent weather during the Winter with reliably sunny days throughout the year.
