The Ocotillo Lodge, full of rich history, is now one of treasures in the desert of Palm Springs. This suite will become your home away from home. The patio set and umbrella are great for outdoor meals and cocktails! Peaceful, palm tree-lined property with one of the largest pools in the city. Two hot tubs, an exercise room, free parking, security gates and guaranteed sunshine make your experience complete.

Start your day with a coffee and breakfast on the patio, by the pool, or at nearby Koffi! Bus service is right outside your door to nearby downtown! Free BUZZ trolley just steps away that will take you downtown Thursday through Sunday. Enjoy the Villagefest on Palm Canyon Drive downtown every Thursday night, where artisans sell their wares, vendors sell their goods, and many Businesses Open Late Thursday (BOLT).

Explore the many wonders of the desert by taking a tram ride up the mountain, visiting the Living Desert, hiking or horseback riding in the Canyons, and a day trip through Joshua Tree National Park. Shopping galore at El Paseo, Cabazon Outlet mall, Desert Hills Outlet mall, Costco, Kohls, Trader Joes, and Target are just the beginning of your shopping spree!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and I purchased my suite in March of 2010. I have always loved visiting Palm Springs and I am happy to provide you with MY home away from home. I believe in offering you the same things I expect when I go on a vacation. Stress-free living. Enjoy!!

Why the Owner Chose Twin Palms, Palm Springs, California, United States of America:
I have been visiting Palm Springs for over 26 years so decided to purchase this bright and airy, south facing suite on the SECOND LEVEL. I have had the suite renovated with all the comforts of home. The large semi-private patio outside the patio door is a wonderful place to have breakfast and coffee in the morning, or a delightful dinner in the evening. As I sometimes stay here as well, my expectations for the complex are high, and I strive to offer you everything you come to expect. The large, heated champagne cork-shaped pool is nearby, and is a great place to meet friends by day, then relax in one of the two hot tubs late into the evening.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This QUIET, SOUTH FACING, bright and airy suite is air conditioned, on the second level AWAY FROM THE STREET! It is fully furnished, with a fully supplied kitchen with a dishwasher, and a dining table for four! There is cable TV in the living room and the bedroom. The suite has free internet and unlimited calling in USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, and double sinks, supplied with linens, towels and pool towels. The laundry facilities are a short walk from the suite. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom. The patio set is right outside the suite for a sunny morning coffee, or a dinner for four in the evening. The complex has a large pool, two hot tubs, a social room and an exercise room. There are books in a small library for your use as well.
