About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Relax in the quiet comfort of your private desert getaway nestled against the stunning San Jacinto Mountains in this perfectly appointed Sommerset town home. Sit on the patio and watch the sun warm the classic stone bridge at Stone Eagle CC or walk twenty steps to your heated swimming pool and spa. Enjoy conversation or flat screen TV viewing in the living room, soothed by the rippling atrium fountain. An updated kitchen makes food preparation a delight and the eating area is perfect for morning coffee and freshly picked citrus fruit, while the open, vaulted ceiling dining room provides for more gracious dining.

A spacious upstairs master suite with king bed includes glorious views, built ins, and a bathroom dressing room with three large closets and a windowed shower with views of palm trees and desert landscape. The main floor guest room boasts a queen bed and adjacent full bath, while the den includes built ins and a queen leather sleeper sofa. All sleeping areas include TV's and there is a full interior laundry and Wi-Fi, as well. Within the community choose from swimming, soaking, sunning, or playing tennis on your choice of four courts. Rent bikes and ride to the Living Desert or the trailhead just south of Bighorn. There are walking trails available both within Sommerset and nearby.

Drive two miles down Highway 74 to famed El Paseo and experience the exquisite shops and fine restaurants on Palm Desert's 'Rodeo Drive'. Shop to your heart's content at Westfield Mall, The River, Desert Crossing, or browse for incredible finds at the Estate Sale, antique shops, art galleries and the many local thrift stores. Dining options vary from landmark Keedy's Cafe to the Elephant Bar, Islands, Casuelas Cafe, and Le Basil to finer choices such as PF Changs, Flemings, The Cheesecake Factory, The Chop House and the venerable LG's Steak House. The list of outstanding eating choices is nearly endless!

Nearby McCallum Theater offers an outstanding season of shows and the College of the Desert buzzes with activity at its famous weekend Flea Market. The Tennis Garden at Indian Wells is a great destination for its spring BNP Paribas Open as well as other year round tennis events. There are a myriad of golf courses available to satisfy any and all duffers and like the nearby Shadow Mountain Golf Club, are now open to guest play without membership. And, if you have kids or grandkids who like a 'big event fun day', visit Boomers or Soak City in nearby Cathedral City!

About Maggie Stiles

We are Bob and Maggie Stiles from San Clemente, CA (check out our VRBO listing #228019 'Casa on Cazador) and we enjoy 'dual citizenship' between southern California and the Northwest where we enjoy summers at our home in Admiral's Cove near Coupeville on Washington's beautiful Whidbey Island.

Maggie Stiles purchased this condo in 2010

Why Maggie Stiles chose Palm Desert

Maggie's a warm weather gal and we both love the beautiful desert landscape and opportunities to enjoy sunny outdoor activities such as walking, golf and tennis.

What makes this condo unique

We begin to relax the moment we walk into our entry courtyard and it doesn't take us long to unwind in the warmth of the soft desert air. We sleep like babies after our evening sojourn in the hot tub steps away from our patio. Being able to enjoy the sunny outdoors every day adds not only energy but, lots of wonderful vitamin D to our lives!

Guestbook comments from the owner

In the nine years we have been coming to the desert this has been our best experience. Throughout our six week stay your vacation condo became a home to us. Your unit is spacious and beautifully furnished. It was equipped with everything we needed.

We had a WOW view, lovely pool, privacy, birds, flowers, and warm and friendly neighbors. Sommerset is a spectacular neighborhood. I am so glad we found it.

Maggie, you have been a joy to work with. I think you were heaven sent!

See you next year!

We absolutely loved our stay at Canyon Crest again. The wonderful view of the mountains and pool just steps from the patio, make it a very enjoyable and relaxing place to visit.

Winter getaway

  • 4 of 5

Maggie and Bob are excellent landlords who were flexible and accomodating to our unique needs. The condo is well equipped, ideally located and felt like home. Having the pool and hot tub just behind the condo was so nice. The photos while accurate don't do the condo justice, the views are spectacular and the neighbours friendly. We would readily recommend this property to our friends and family.

Our visit during September was very enjoyable. Canyon Crest Condo has everything you need. A great pool is footsteps away and the patio has a very nice view. We highly recommend Canyon Crest to everyone and look forward to staying again.

One of the best places we have stayed at over the last 5 years of using VRBO. Clean, quiet, very well furnished and comfortable. We enjoyed walks in the hills and plenty of great golf. We would definitely use Canyon Crest again.

Review update! Bill & Jackie, Portland, OR

  • 5 of 5

Last year, 2013, We submitted a review for this wonderful Canyon Crest home which we lauded its beauty, livability, and spectacular views. We had planned to spend two months here this year but due to serious health issues had to cancel our reservation with the owners who are unbelievably terrific to work with. Our loss this year is sure to be the beginning of a wonderful experience for someone who is looking for a first class place to stay.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our getaway to Canyon Crest and would stay again in a heartbeat!! The entire unit is spotless, well-maintained, and very inviting . . we felt so comfortable! We thoroughly enjoyed the covered patio with views of the beautiful mountains and pool.

Just minutes from premier shopping and plenty of restaurants, there's also plenty to do in addition to relaxing.We look forward to visiting the warm and sunny Palm Desert again and would love the opportunity to stay at Canyon Crest in the future.
