About Jill Maroney

We live at the beach where the weather is nice and cool, but we love having our desert escape where it's usually sunny and dry. We can lay by the pool and soak up the sun, or golf at any number of nearby world-class courses. It's only a couple of hours away, but feels like we're a world away on a major vacation. We also love the availability of top-notch dining, shopping, and entertainment possibilities. Mark and Jill - Torrance, CA

Jill Maroney purchased this condo in 1996

Why Jill Maroney chose Palm Desert

We visited and loved it, wanted to own a place here so we could visit whenever we have a free day or two! It's relaxing, great for entertaining, and there's lots of fabulous golf close by, as well as great restaurants, shopping, etc.

What makes this condo unique

Great activities, weather, golfing, shopping..... we feel relaxed the minute we walk in the door. Lovely to sit on the patio and enjoy the view while contemplating the next day's adventures.

The listing was as described. The actual views are more beautiful than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our month visit so much. The owners were helpful and answered our emails quickly. The condo was clean and beautiful. A very restful place. We spent time at various golf courses, walked the trail at the visitors center, visited wine country, and just relaxed around the pool. Can't wait to go back next year. Would highly recommend this place.

Wonderful and Relaxing Condo Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming here for a few years now. It is such a pleasure to open the door when we arrive to a clean and well maintained condo. The view from the sliding glass doors to the pool area immediately makes you relax and know that you are going to have a wonderful time. Jill is very helpful and makes sure that everything is in order. I would recommend this property to my friends and family. We join Ironwood CC for the month and are treated as special guests. We play golf and pickleball, as well as excercise and eat at the club.

Very unique setting

  • 5 of 5

The strong point is the location. There are around 10 condos around the pool area with plenty of grass. We had 7 85 degree days and sat outside and use to pool a lot. It was not very crowded and felt very private. The condo has all the things you need and the owners are great.

Lovely condo, great area, very thoughtful hosts

  • 5 of 5

This well equipped condo is situated in a lovely area, 1-2 miles from the center of Palm Desert. The grounds and surroundings are very scenic and tranquil, with nice views of the surrounding mountains. We found the condo spacious and the kitchen nicely equipped --all very clean and well maintained. The hosts were exceptionally considerate and thoughtful, making for seamless logistics and an easy arrival.

Regarding the overall area, we especially enjoyed the Living Desert (very close by), quality restaurants in the town, and the gorgeous scenery in Joshua Tree National Park. It is a great location, which we highly recommend! We'd enthusiastically return to this condo.

Relaxing Desert Escape

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay in the dessert thanks to this beautiful property! The condo is spacious and extremely well kept. The kitchen was fully equipped to cook meals and the air conditioning was in tip top shape to keep the place nice and cool. I am used to staying in hotels so having a laundry right in the unit was a great luxury. It was tempting to spend the entire weekend in the bright living room but we did eventually venture outside.

The pictures of the yard are spot on. The pool is is just outside of the condo down a private patio and a grassy slope. You can easily go from the condo to the pool which is very convenient. The pool never had more than 5 people at a time and there were always open lounge chairs. I felt like it was my own private pool.

Wonderful stay!

Car: necessary

Close to loads of golf courses, casinos, swap meet/open air market with farmers market on weekends, gourmet dining, art galleries. Enjoy views of the Santa Rosa mountains beyond the pool and garden from the master bedroom, living room and covered patio. We're nestled right up in the foothills away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but less than five minute drive from El Paseo if you want to tear yourself away from the tranquility.
