About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

California Dreamin’ is becoming your reality!

Two bedroom, two bath residence in Sun City substantially remodeled in 2010 with new tile floor in living areas and baths, new beds, new linens (some of which have been refreshed in 2016), dishes, etc. with cool, comfortable colors with a dash of fun! This bright, sunny home is private, with a walled backyard which encloses several fruit trees with a bright splash of bougainvillea. The patio is recessed and out of the sun. This home is fully furnished with a king sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen sized bed in the guest room. Plenty of seating in the great room will accommodate all of your guests. The master bath was completely remodeled and updated in 2012. In 2014, the patio was extended and a fire pit was added.

Broadband internet and Wifi are provided, along with cable TV. There is a 42 inch HD TV in the living room and a 26 inch TV in the guest room. A printer is provided for your convenience. Continuous radio stations by genre are available through the TV. A bookshelf sound system charges and plays your iPhone tunes and plays CD’s and DVD's as well as providing a radio option. I am not very tech savvy and perhaps should upgrade my devices but for now, this is what I have.

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal using the fabulously fresh produce available locally. There are organic Farmer’s Markets every Saturday in Palm Desert and Palm Springs except in the heat of the summer.. A Farmer's Market takes place every Thursday at the main clubhouse. On Thursday evenings every week you can enjoy Village Fest in Palm Springs with its unparalleled gathering of artisans and food vendors. Saturday and Sunday bring the huge College of the Desert street fair.

Pickleball has become extremely popular in the desert and there are pickleball courts available for your use.

The golf cart is included in the rental.

Well-behaved and house-trained dogs are welcome.

The home is only six doors from the neighborhood pool that is reserved for the exclusive use of owners and renters in this section of Sun City. The golf course and three clubhouses are only a short drive from your desert home. The golf cart makes getting to your round on time easy!

The garage is full so only driveway parking is available.

Sun City offers two beautiful and challenging 18 hole golf courses, three clubhouses, 3 outdoor pools, 1 indoor Olympic pool, exercise facilities and numerous other amenities, including over 60 chartered clubs and two dedicated dog parks. Sun City is only a short drive from world famous shopping on El Paseo and the retro-chic of Palm Springs. There are several large casinos and renowned stage artists perform in the area every month. Cuisines from around the world are available to please every palate. This lovely spot in the desert is a great get away with many different diversions for your entertainment with over 100 golf courses in the area.

There are citrus trees in the backyard which should provide abundant fruit in season. And there is a juice maker so you can enjoy the fruits for breakfast!

This property is located only doors from the Sun City gate off Varner Road, making access to Palm Desert and I-10 extremely convenient. No winding through all of the Sun City streets to get home. Take the golf cart to Stater Bros. grocery, the drugstore, coffee shop, hardware store or Mario's Italian Restaurant. Just shoot through the gate in the wall and you're there.

In addition, the house is only a 3 minute drive from Sun City Shadow Hills, so you may want to considering staying here to supervise the construction of your new home.

Some owners are only renting their properties for three months or longer. This house is available for 30 days or more.

Additional photos are available of the property. Just ask! And please call rather than sending an email.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My dream of owning a home in California has been fulfilled by the purchase of this property. I hope that others who long for the reliable, rejuvenating sunshine will enjoy sharing that dream with me. Sun City is a beautiful, affordable place in the sun. YOU WILL RECEIVE A DIRECT EMAIL FROM ME WHEN YOU INQUIRE ABOUT RENTING MY HOME. VRBO'S TEMPLATES DO NOT WORK FOR MY SITUATION. MY "RESPONSE RATE" AS DETERMINED BY VRBO S LOW BECAUSE VRBO CANNOT TRACK MY RESPONSES OUTSIDE VRBO.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Desert, CA, USA:
The surroundings in Sun City could not be more pleasant with brilliant sunshine and mountain views. There is the assurance of a guard-gated community with more amenities than can be described. All homes are maintained properly so that you can be confident your home and its neighbors will be in good condition. And all within a very short distance from great food, great dining and great entertainment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The remodeling is complete and is reflected in the photos. There is fresh paint in the kitchen, living room and guest bath. A new refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave are on site. A washer and dryer are in the garage. The queen and king sized beds were new in the summer of 2010 and have had little use. New linens, new pots and pans, new dishes, new glasses and so on were also put in place in August, 2010. The master bath was completely stripped and remodeled in the summer of 2012.
