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 Deserts

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.

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!

A VRBO that exceeds expectations - how nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a last minute trip to Palm Springs and needed a place just for a few days. This looked nice in the photos - so I booked it - and what a lovely surprise! The house is well decorated, fresh and immaculate. It was also the perfect size for my husband and I and our two (adult) kids. Plenty of space with the three bedrooms and the common areas were quite comfortable. We did not cook or use the pools (parents live close by so spent the days/evenings there) but the kitchen looked well equipped and the pool family-friendly. Also - the owner Chris was very prompt in his communication and easy to work with. How nice when a VRBO over delivers...and this one does!

Brand New Inside

  • 5 of 5

We came here with my fiancés family and had such a blast. The place is brand new inside and super modern. The pillows in the master were life changing. Just bought a set myself. The community pool is just a short walk away. Chris the owner has everything you need when you arrive including pool towels and even a golf cart to get around. You know you are staying in style when they provide all the hotel size shampoos and conditioners. We will definitely stay here again next year. Thanks Chris for the hospitality.
