About Lou & Lynn Balducci

I have been in the wine wholesale business for 40 years and enjoy dining, entertaining, golf, and of course wine. My wife and I also enjoy spending time with our adult children and grandchildren.

Lou & Lynn Balducci purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lou & Lynn Balducci chose Palm Desert

We searched the desert for a while before settling on Monterey Country Club. It is always clean and kept up very well. Also very secure and private and close to shopping, dining and all activities. We especially enjoy our condo location as it is steps away from a shaded pool and you can spend a very quiet afternoon there.

What makes this condo unique

We have made good friends in the desert and enjoy visiting with them. Also when at our condo, it always feels like we are on vacation.

Old, poorly maintained.

  • 1 of 5

Worst VRBO we’ve ever been in. Every cupboard so loaded, we had to remove stuff to reach what we were using. Closets had dozens of hangers which we removed so we could hang our clothes. Garage cluttered with stuff and dirty. Master bedroom had an old water bed. After 2 nights and back aches, moved into smaller BR. Shower head in master BR so old, couldn’t use that shower. Previous renter had 2 large dogs who peed on carpets in bedrooms. We had professional cleaners out because odor and unsanitary conditions were making us ill. Enclosed courtyard was used for the dogs. One day I picked up 12 dog poops. Many pots and pans were rusted or nonstick surface chipped that we had to use foil or not use. Couch had pet odor in it.

I’m very disappointed in vrbo representing this property. It was not as advertised and we wasted a lot of money and will reconsider ever renting thru VRBO or homeaway again.

Great vacation townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your property. Your home was very comfortable and we definetly felt "at home". The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals. As well the townhouse was equipped with the essential amenities. The pool was literally steps from the back patio. We were happy the weather cooperated and we used the pool daily (swimming laps & sun tanning). The waterbed in the master bedroom was a "surprise" but very comfortable. (No pressure points - ergo - no morning back pain -- yeah!!!)

Our landlords were very accomodating. Thank you Lou & Lynn for a very relaxing vacation. Sincerely, John & Simone
