About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4), 2 Baths, Laundry, Full Kitchen, Pools & Tennis

Colin’s Palm Springs Getaway is a clean and modern upstairs vacation condo in south Palm Springs. The condo is decorated with Palm Springs style and comfort, and is well-stocked with amenities to make it a perfect home away from home.

The condo is located at Palm Canyon Villas, a development known for its tall palm trees, well-maintained grounds, and a comfortable resort feel. The residents and tenants are primarily 40 and older, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. It’s a great location with:

* four salt-water pools and four tennis courts to choose from

* walking paths

* public golf courses across the street

* nearby hiking

* grocery stores within a quarter mile

* downtown shopping and restaurants less than ten minutes away

* quick access to everything you would want to do in Palm Springs, the other desert cities, and Joshua Tree Park.

The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed and features an attached bathroom and an office area with a desk and reading chair. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed, comfortable for one or two people, and has its own bathroom right outside the door. The balcony patio has a table with seating for 4, with a view of the pool but set back enough to give you privacy.

For guests that like to cook, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities you need to prepare a great meal. For your entertainment, there are two 42″ flat screen TV’s with HD cable programming, or choose from the DVD library and Netflix. Also included is high-speed wifi internet, phone with free calling within the USA and Canada, and a full size washer and dryer.

Many happy travelers have stayed at Colin’s Palm Springs Getaway and given it 5-star reviews. I do my best to make this condo a better place to stay at a good price. Feel free to ask if you have any questions or requests.

About Colin Sowa

My name is Colin, and I am the owner of this condo. I have lived in Palm Springs since 2005. I bought this condo in 2011 and updated it to make it the kind of place I would like to stay in. I live only seven minutes away from the property and I am available if any problems arise or even just to answer general questions about Palm Springs.

Palm Canyon Villas is a beautifully maintained property in south Palm Springs, which is very desirable to vacationers. The multiple pools and tennis courts, and easy access to golf and shopping make it a perfect vacation spot.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is rented by the owner, not a rental agency ensuring you more personal and prompt replies and service. To make your stay a little easier, the condo is stocked with a week or two supply of staple goods like tissues, toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, and laundry supplies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was a dream. Every need was anticipated. Thank you so much for making our stay so easy. We definitely will be coming back and hope that your condo will be available. P.S. Marilyn was great!

Beautiful, clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay in this property. It had a partial view of the pool which was also wonderful and we had to ourselves most of the time. Colin was very pleasant to deal with and left us a welcome pack which was very thoughtful. The only issue we had was a bird nesting in the fan on the balcony that left it unusable for 5 days but this no fault whatsoever of Colins in fact he rang to warn us. We will definately use this property next time we visit Palm Springs

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Colin's Getaway and had a fabulous time. The condo was well equipped with comfortable beds and plenty of household equipment. The pool was lovely and we could check out the activity from the balcony. Colin provided every bit of information that we could have asked for. Loved the location - we felt we were central to every area we wanted to explore. 5 stars for the condo and 10 stars for the host!

Beautiful, Immaculate, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I just spent a week at Colin's condo in Palm Springs and it could not have been better! Colin was super-responsive, and the communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The condo is just as lovely as the pictures and was immaculate! Everything was well-stocked (he's thought of everything you'd need for a comfortable stay). Palm Canyon Villas is a friendly, quiet, relaxing community, and the condo is very conveniently located within Palm Springs. We especially loved the terrace off the living room. It feels private, and while it's bright and light, it does not get direct sunlight so you can sit out there at any time of the day and not feel like you need to wear SPF 50. Overall we could not have asked for a better place to stay and consider ourselves thoroughly spoiled. Worth every dime and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
