About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Nicely updated two bedroom, two bath single level Sandpiper condominium designed by famed mid-century architect William Krisel. Located on El Paseo in Palm Desert -- the "Rodeo Drive of the Desert" -- the unit has lovely mountain, pool, and palm tree views and is located on a dead-end street away from traffic and noise. Two private patios (one with gas barbecue) and the delightful entryway atrium combine with beautiful exterior landscaping for seamless indoor and outdoor living. A pleasing mixture of contemporary and quality vintage furniture is found throughout the unit.

In 2014, the unit's interior was completely repainted, carpet was replaced, and new window treatments installed. The bathrooms received new tile flooring, glass countertops, and tile showers, and new tile was installed in the kitchen and atrium, in 2015.

Sandpiper is an architecturally significant, low-density development in the mid-century style. Our unit, like most of the others, features high ceilings, celestory windows, and a comfortable, open floor plan. Each pool is shared by only 16 units and is surrounded by wide expanses of grass and lush landscaping (including mature grapefruit and lemon trees). Our particular pool area features a shady cabana, gas barbecue, putting green, shuffleboard area, and plenty of patio and pool furniture. The inviting pool is kept at a warm 85 degrees year round.

Directly across from the unit's private driveway are multiple retail establishments and restaurants, including Rite-Aid and Starbucks. Several grocery stores are nearby, and the famed, upscale El Paseo shopping and dining district is just a short walk away. Hiking trails, public tennis courts, Westfield's Palm Desert Mall, the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert, and Target are also within walking distance. Other attractions, including numerous golf courses, the Living Desert, the River shopping complex, McCallum Theater, Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and Sunnylands estate are within 10 minutes drive.

The unit is easily accessible, with three unassigned parking spaces directly in front of the main entrance, and a reserved covered space in the nearby carport. A public bus stop is within walking distance on Highway 111.

Everything you need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay is available: plenty of linens, full laundry facilities, ample newer cookware and dishware, barbecue, cable television, free long distance phone throughout the U.S. and Canada, and wireless Internet access.

The City of Palm Desert's short-term rental ordinance applies to stays in this unit of less than 28 days (Permit No. 41150). Accordingly, for rentals to which the ordinance applies, 11 percent tax will be added to the rental amount and the cleaning fee. Special rates may apply during certain peak periods. Guests will be provided with and must agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the condominium association.

Owner info

About the owner: We are a couple with three young children from Portland, Oregon. Our families have enjoyed coming to the Desert for many years. We love the relaxed, casual atmosphere, numerous attractions and activities, and great year-round weather that the area has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Desert, CA, USA:
Sandpiper is the perfect Desert location. There is something for everyone within walking distance of our unit, and it's a short drive to just about anywhere in the Coachella Valley. Living in an architecturally significant development is another plus. Guests and owners alike, and especially families with small children like ours, enjoy Sandpiper's low density, wide open greenspaces, beautiful trees and landscaping, and sparkling pools.
