About the owner: Hi I live along the Southern California coast and visit the desert on weekends when I can. I love to share this home with friends and guests because it is so near the center of all ... while being quiet and relaxing at the same time.
Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates (Palm Springs, CA, USA):
Growing up in Southern California everyone dreamed about having a little place to get away from it all, without the hassles of going too far away. Now that I have a place of my own, I look forward to helping you get the most from your stay in the desert.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of my favorite things to do here are a) cocktails at one of the new hip restaurants in town [see notes below] b) passing the evening with friends just sitting by the firepit sipping a nice glass of wine. and c) spending the afternoon lounging around the pool watching the sun slowly set behind the snow capped mountains. See how relaxing a weekend can truly be in the desert .
