We love this newly remodeled condo, with the warm color palette, and modern touches in the furnishings and art. Our little getaway is fresh and comfortable for our family and guests. This is NO ordinary rental.

Why Chris Strickfaden chose Palm Desert

We chose Monterey Country Club for its central location and its wonderful amenities. Our location is super quiet which was important to us.

What makes this condo unique

My husband and son enjoy golfing and tennis, and enjoy those activities here at Monterey CC or nearby Desert Willow Golf Course. My daughter & I love all the great shopping nearby El Paseo! The Pool and jacuzzi are directly across from our place so it is convenient for our family and guests.

5 star Monterey G&C vrbo

  • 5 of 5

This is a 5 star vacation vrbo property. The Monterey gated community is not only picturesque, it is a pleasure to be around. Grounds are well maintained, easy to go for morning walk here. The condo itself is exquisite, clean, newly renovated kitchen with gas stove, sunny patio( with comfortable chairs!), very modern open area concept and tv sitting area. Love those quartz counter tops. Too many features to list. Home owner is the easy to deal with. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wonderful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over Thanksgiving. The weather was perfect. One thing to note that all of the water parks in the area are closed during winter months. The condo is as pictured....clean, completely remodeled, and beautifully decorated . The owners could not have been easier to communicate with, or more responsive. There was a lovely bottle of wine upon our arrival. The bedding and towels are high quality. There was also a lighted make up mirror in master bath. The patio is facing the morning sun which is ideal in Palm Dessert to have patio in the shade all afternoon. We appreciated the use of the golf cart tremendously. The location of the condo is near shopping of all kinds. Some things to note about the country club. There are 30 + identical pools / hot tubs scattered around the property. There are 2 pools within 1 block of this condo. The pools are small and are 3-5 feet deep, but if in use by more people than you like...another is a minute (s) away. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time. There is access to golf, with a golf fee to play. The larger pool at country club is not available for renters use. The restaurant at the County Club does not have breakfast and is really average / below average for food. We did drive the golf cart there and enjoyed a cocktail on the deck which has a lovely view, but don't recommend eating there. There are however, an endless list of amazing restaurants within minutes of the condo. Look forward to staying here again!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in Palm Desert. We loved this beautiful condo. It had everything we needed to make our week long stay enjoyable. The golf cart came in handy as we used it a lot to visit my parents a couple of fairways away. The first thing the kids commented on that first morning were the sheets. The bedding is so soft and the beds are so comfortable. Their decorating has inspired me to redo my master bedroom at home. Thank you for so many great ideas!
