About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Monterey Country Club is one of the most sought after communities in the desert! Location, location, location... In the heart of the valley just 3 minutes from El Paseo, 2 minutes to College of the Desert and Westfield Shopping Center. From the Monterey Country Club, you're a maximum of 15 minutes from everything the valley has to offer.

Our home had an extensive remodel just a few years ago. There's beautiful tile floors throughout except in the Master bedroom which is carpeted. The kitchen has granite countertops, new cabinets and new stainless steel appliances and is very well equipped with small appliances and utensils. There is a 'pass-through' from the kitchen to the dining area, with a sit-up counter for watching the cook and enjoying cocktails. The living room features new leather reclining sofa and love seat and has a 42' HD widescreen t.v. with full High Def cable. ( The master bedroom has a 32' high def t.v.) The Master bedroom has a California King bed with very comfy Euro pillow top. .. very comfortable so you can be sure of a good night's sleep (not some old sub standard beds you find in some properties). The 'spa-like' ensuite has an oversized beautifully tiled shower, leather ottoman and double sink/mirror vanity. The guest bedroom also has a California King Euro top bed. Note as well that there are several pillow choices in each bedroom so you can be sure to find exactly what you need to get a good night's sleep. There's nothing worse than being on vacation and tossing and turning all night on an old worn, or cheap, bed.The guest/main bedroom has a double sink vanity with tub/shower combination.

All the furnishings, appliances, pots, pans, utensils and dinnerware are top quality.

The private courtyard offers shade during the hot sunny afternoons and is equipped with a nice dining table and chairs and natural gas bbq. At night, the desert like garden and patio lights provide a relaxing place to sit and chat.

The back patio offers sun most of the day and views of the mountains and the golf course. The patio has two reclining loungers to soak up the sun. And just 50 yards away is one of the country club's pools and spas.

About Gorde Edlund

My wife and I love the desert and in particular Palm Desert. And we love to go to the desert when it's hot: June through September. Give us 105 during the day and 80 at night. The valley has so much to offer: golf, hiking, shopping, great restaurants (Roy's, Yardhouse and Stuft Pizza are our favourites), and endless sight seeing.

Gorde Edlund purchased this condo in 2010

Why Gorde Edlund chose Palm Desert

The Monterey Country Club is a great facility in a wonderful location. The floor plan of this condo is exceptional: big bedrooms located at opposite ends of the unit; nice master ensuite; separate bath by second bedroom; good kitchen with 'pass through' and a great place at the counter to sip cocktails in the bar stools.

What makes this condo unique

The beautifully remodeled master ensuite is done in a spa like decor with huge walk-in tiled shower and doublesink vanity. There's even a skylight in the bathroom so it's bright and airy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at your beautiful Palm Desert condo for 5 days in April. We had never been to the Palm Springs area and weren't sure what to expect. Your golf course condo was perfect! The condo was spacious and worked well for travelling with a family because of the great layout, kitchen and close proximity to the pool. The condo overall was very inviting and comfortable. As well, the location was excellent with all amenities a 5 minute drive away. We had a great reprive from our Canadian climate and look forward to returning soon.

Perfect location in a very comfortable and well equipped property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property as part of our spring vacation and found that it suited our needs perfectly. It was very clean and comfortable as well as having everything you would have if you were at home. The location was great for restaurants, shops and golf. Gorde the owner, was very prompt and helpful with any communications and our stay went without any problems. Having stayed in the area on several occasions this was definitely the best for our family.

Perfect holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Palm Desert the week between Christmas and New Year's of 2016. This property exceeded our expectations, was very very clean ,equipped well with everything we needed, and ideally located near everything great in Palm Desert. The beds were super comfortable and Monterey CC is such a great complex. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The owner is very prompt answering questions and we were very pleased.

Lovely comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Gorde for a great place to stay in Palm Desert. The unit had all the little extras from peanut butter to BBQ utensils - nothing was missing. We found we were very centrally located and getting around was easy. The use of the garage was a great bonus in the heat, nice to have a cool car to start off in. We used the patio for every meal and enjoyed watching the golfers go by. At night the unit was quiet and peaceful and the beds were heaven. Thanks again, we really enjoyed our stay

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great vacation and enjoyed our home. Yes the location of the Monterey Country Club is outstanding - it's basically the center of the Coachella valley. walking distance to College of the desert, Westfield shopping Center and even El Paseo. And thank you for the comments about how well equipped our home is! The kitchen has everything you need to make gourmet meals. Of course, being in the center of everything, you are just 5 or 10 minutes away from some of the best restaurants in the valley, like Roy's, Fleming's, P.F. Chang's, Babe's BarBQ Brewhouse and more. I hope we can be your hosts again.

Relaxing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with my brother and sister-in-law spent a week at this very relaxing vacation house. The home was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. The master bedrooms are very nice and the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. We enjoyed sitting outside resting in the beautiful atmosphere, took many bike rides around the pretty facility, utilized several of the lovely pool areas and just enjoyed ourselves. We had company several nights and played cards around the dining room table. Comfy couches to put your feet up and watch TV. We hope to utilize this home again soon. Thanks Gorde and Daphne for the wonderful time in your home.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is as advertised and pictured. Two bedrooms with very nice beds. Two bathrooms and the Master is really special. Excellent kitchen with modern appliances with a eating bar and a dining room table that easily could seat six. Kitchen is very well stocked with utensils, towels, spices, plastic wrap and just about everything else you need. Living room is comfortable with Lazy Boy type leg rests. Very plush. Location is close to security entrance so you don't have to drive all over the place in this very large complex. Swimming pool and hot tub is just a few feet away from back door of condo. Almost forgot you have use of garage so your car is clean the whole trip. Owner is super making sure all your needs and questions are met.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We believe that you should be spoiled a bit while on vacation, that's why we created the spa-like ensuite and sought out high-end quality beds so that you get a great night's sleep after a day of golf, tennis or hiking (that way you can do it all over again tomorrow).
