About Troy Thompson

We are a family of 4 with two small children who visit this condo often. It`s a perfect place to kick your feet up, relax, and enjoy yourself. The Pro Shop for golf or tennis is just down the street and can be used by our guests. There is also a fitness center near the Pro Shop, or you can use our treadmaster in the unit. The pool is close enough to refill your beverage, and anything you need to do while in the desert is just outside our gates.

Troy Thompson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Troy Thompson chose Rancho Mirage

We purchased this unit in Rancho Las Palmas for it's location and proximity to all the major attractions and amenities in the desert. It's comparable to staying in the Times Square area of New York right in the heart of everything.

What makes this condo unique

We have been travelling to the desert for 7 years, and found we liked being close to ``The River Complex`` with it`s movie complex, andrestaurants. We are also close to the Westfield Mall, Walmart Supercenter, Home Depot and Costco. El Paseo Drivè for the finer shops and restaurants is 5 blocks away.

It`s also in the middle of the desert, so it`s 10 minutes to La Quinta, and 13 minutes to the airport or Downtown Palm Springs.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time Ive stayed here with my family and everything was great! We love the location, there are 2 pools close by and 22 to choose from in the complex! Its centrally located near shops and restaurants and there's a spa at the resort next door. My toddler loves to watch the golfers on the patio and we found the big umbrella a bonus so we could sit out in the heat of the day. We met some of the neighbors and they have all been really kind. The home is fully stocked, it even has all the spices for cooking! There's central air throughout the house which we really appreciated as we saw temperatures in the 100's while there. Other reviews say the owner is hard to get ahold of but we have not had this experience any time we've been, she's always quick to get back to us and happy to help with whatever we need. We have already planned our next trip back!

needs repairs and owner doesn't return calls

  • 1 of 5

I've been renting in Rancho Las Palmas for 15 years and this is easily the most worn out place I've rented. First I show up at the gate for checkin without my name being there after sending two emails to remind the owner (doesn't the owner do that automatically after collecting our money?). Three TV's with only one remote that works (someone had deprogrammed 2 of them). Window coverings in living room are missing multiple slats with those still up being held up by twist ties. Window coverings in kitchen are very old and don't work so we left them up the whole time and the kitchen got cooked by the sun. Now I'm embarrassed to admit but I travel with some small tools for this exact reason. The shower tap in the main bathroom was not working so I took it apart and fixed it, went and got Draino for a plugged drain (the same shower), reattached two towel rods that fell off the wall after a towel was removed from them, and took apart and fixed one of the arms on the 10 foot umbrella on the patio. I could keep going... but on the positive side its in a good location

Awesome Patio viewing the Golf Course and Mountains

  • 4 of 5

We stayed four weeks and for the most of our stay, we lived outside on the patio! There we viewed the golf course and mountains. There was no better way to start the day with my coffee and daily newspaper on the patio. Then in the late afternoons we had shade, the perfect place to have Happy Hour, play cards and enjoy some cocktails until it was bedtime. Very rarely did we sit inside unless we were watching something on TV. The unit is fully stocked with everything that you may need and if you find something missing, a store is always close by.

I would not recommend this property to anyone nor would I rent it again.

  • 1 of 5

The property needs attention for example:

Light fixture dangling in laundry room, closet doors in master bedroom not working, extremely dark home with poor lighting, worn sheets in small bedroom, messy electronics cubbard under large TV in family room, no place mats or table cloths, windows through out are filthy, verticle draw shades are broken and work poorly, entire home needs a thorough cleansing. And the crowning blow: water turned off for non-payment of bill. It was difficult to contact owners. Know that when renting from VRBO you have no support from them when immediate property attention or repair is needed. I will say that VRBO did provide a hotel stay during the time of water turn off. But finding a phone number for them was difficult.

Suggestion: contact the property owner before renting and develop a plan if the property demands attention. The Thompsons when finally contacted reimbursed the renter for payment of the water bill plus a credit for the inconvenience.

Rancho Las Palmas Country Club is in the Center of the desert. You are a 5 minute drive to everywhere and everything! That's why we chose to purchase at this spot.

Restaurant Row is on the 111 between both our main gates. The Westfield Shopping Mall, Wallmart, Costco, and Home Depot are 5 minutes away or less. The # 10 freeway has a ramp at Bob Hope drive and Monterray which lead directly to our front and back gates which allow quick access to LA or the shopping outlets in Cabazon. There is movie Theaters in the Westfield Mall or at the # 10. Outside our Monteray Gate and across the street at College of the Desert is the weekend market. The 111 takes you 12 minutes into downtown Palm Springs. And outside our main gates is The River where shops, restaurants and more importantly Starbucks all within walking distance from our unit.
