About the property

2 Master Bedrooms + 2.5 Bathrooms

Welcome to VILLA VACANZA at Desert Falls Country Club in beautiful Palm Desert, California. I am pleased to offer you, for your consideration, my recently renovated vacation home; a place that I have to come to think of, as pretty special. The first thing that impresses my guests when they arrive, is how bright, airy, and spacious the condo feels. There is a terrific open flow to the space that also extends out into the south facing patio and onto the common greens and pool area. I envisioned and arranged the villa to be the perfect getaway for a couple or two.

There are two en suite MASTER BEDROOMS: each with new furnishings, and new linens; each with new carpeting and tile; each with built-in walk-in closets; each with 40” HDTV flat screens, Blu ray players and of course, cable. Also, each bedroom, has a set of two luxurious bathrobes for your lounging needs ;)

In the DEN, there is a 50” Samsung Smart HDTV, with a Blu ray player, and a Skype Camera. The TV is connected, wirelessly, to the internet and to an HD cablebox for your viewing pleasure. There are also numerous DVD’s and CD’s stocked. If you’re interested in the fun and intrigue (or drama in my family!) of board games, I’ve included: Trivial Pursuit, Balderdash, Dominoes, Train, Monopoly, Scrabble, Chess, Crib, Backgammon and Poker. In addition, there are boxed puzzles, which was something of a hit on recent cruises I’ve taken.

MUSIC has always been an important part of my life; certainly something I would take with me on a holiday, and I wanted my guests to have choices when it came to playing music. There is a Bose stereo system in the living room that connects via Bluetooth with any device, and a CD/MP3/FM/AM stereo in the den. There are also numerous music channels on all the TV’s.

Speaking of the KITCHEN, it is fully stocked, with dishes, pots/pans/tins (both small and very large) cutlery, glassware, linens and Tupperware storage containers. This kitchen is very cool…all the cupboards below the counters, have pull out shelving on rollers….very easy access! There is even a folding ironing board. I have provided a Keurig coffee machine, a Delonghi Espresso maker, as well as a French Press and the familiar drip coffee maker. Included also, is a Braun Mixer, a Cuisinart Hand Blender, a commercial grade blender that makes wicked margaritas, a panini maker, and a 20” Samsung HDTV so you won’t miss a moment of your favorite show while making that wicked margarita. There are lots of spices, oils, vinegars, condiments, baking supplies including flour and sugar and various types of sweeteners, that are labelled and stocked for your use. The kitchen also has a breakfast eating area and a work desk. The fridge, dishwasher and stove are all new stainless steel Samsung products as of 2014.

The PATIO is incredibly peaceful with great vistas of the pool, the greens, palm trees and mountaintops. It is south facing, with both sunny and shady areas throughout the day. There is a gas BBQ with fridge and generous granite countertops, with lots of cooking utensils (stocked in the kitchen) and new designer plastic patio dishware and cutlery. I arranged the patio into two areas: one with a dining table with seating for 4 and one with two club chairs and ottomans- perfect for reading and relaxing.

The Pool is heaven! It is one of the largest in Desert Falls, perfect for laps and for floating (on any one of a number of floats avail) with perhaps a margarita in hand? (sensing a theme here?) I have provided pool towels, towel clips (for the loungers) and sunscreen.

I wanted the living room to be the social hub of the condo. Purposefully, I put no TV there. Instead, you will find an open room with very comfortable furnishings, decorated with neutral tones of the desert, and hints of the emerald greens and the turquoise blues viewable from out of the window vistas. Also, there is a great built- in bar for your entertaining needs.

Feel free to phone anywhere within USA, including USVI and Puerto Rico, and to Canada at no charge. There are five remote phones located throughout the villa.

I created a go-to manual, printed and laminated, for you to use during your stay, that references great restaurants, shopping, activities and much needed information regarding all your needs while staying at Villa Vacanza.

Thank you for your interest; please have a look at the accompanying photos and video. Any inquires and questions can be made to the email address provided, and will be met with a prompt reply. I hope that you consider Villa Vacanza in your travel plans to sunny Palm Desert!

The on- site Fitness Centre (newly renovated) and Tennis Courts (well-lit) are accessible to guests at no charge, as is the Club House.

Condo was very clean, very well supplied. Really appreciated the bicycle which I used to ride to the clubhouse for workouts. Pool was great for grandkids. Really could not ask for anything better.

This was the perfect vacation. We read the other reviews and felt we couldn’t really add anything. The Villa was everything the other reviews stated and more – absolutely beautiful. Both Johnathan and Pat are GREAT. We want to thank them both for making this such a special vacation.

Villa Vacanza is a Bonanza!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of March at Villa Vacanza in the Desert Falls Country Club, and we couldn’t have asked for a more comfortable and delightful condominium. During our stay, we had the pleasure of interacting with both Johnathan, the owner, and Pat, the condominium coordinator, and it was clear that their top priority was our comfort and enjoyment of the condo.

The condo, itself, is spectacular – light, bright and airy. The furniture, general décor and the art work throughout the condo are both comfortable and easy on the eyes. There are two separate conversation areas – a large, very nicely decorated living room overlooking the patio and pool, and a den that can be closed off from the rest of the house, with comfortable furniture and a large, wall-mounted T.V. We like to read, and we found a library with over a hundred books and games galore. We also enjoyed having the Bose sound system which we could pair to our iPhones for music throughout the day.

The kitchen is clearly designed for folks who enjoy cooking! It is equipped with every pot, pan, dish and utensil you would need for preparing either a snack or a five-course meal. The Samsung stainless-steel appliances look like some of the best on the market. We would wake up in the morning and have to decide whether to use the regular coffee maker, the Keurig coffee maker, the expresso machine or the French press– this place has it all! We particularly enjoyed life on the patio, with a state-of-the-art grill, and a lounge area and a dining area, both overlooking the heated pool, which is the largest and nicest in the community.

We also appreciated the two separate, large, en-suite bedrooms, each with very comfortable beds, large dressers and walk-in closets for storage of our clothes. Also, both had very nice bathrooms, each with a tub and shower. Finally, I appreciated the well-equipped office area, with desk, phone and T.V. (one of the four in the condo) in the breakfast nook just off the kitchen, where I could take care of business during our stay.

Our month at Villa Vacanza also gave us a very friendly community for walking, biking, bird-watching and access to the Desert Fall Country Club facilities. We dined there, enjoyed drinks on the patio overlooking the ninth and eighteenth greens and had access to their excellent fitness center. We feel very lucky to have found Johnathan’s Villa Vacanza, and we hope to be able to return for the next several years.

First Class and Worth It!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is the best that we have encountered in the four years that we have been renting in Palm Desert. It is completely equipped to satisfy the requirements of renter clients in all aspects of appliances, supplies and entertainment. It is imaginatively and comfortably decorated to high standards in every room and comes complete with many extra technology devices that enhance the renter’s quality of life, i.e. remote light switches, USB plug-ins at all beside tables, remote fan controls, Bluetooth speakers, etc. Combined with the availability of the Desert Falls club facilities and golf course, it is a one-stop, 5-star rental with an Olympic-sized pool just steps from the patio. In addition, the owner and his on-site manager are willing and eager to quickly address any deficiencies to make the renter’s stay more enjoyable. We have revised our annual plans to again visit Villa Vacanza next year.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for one month in November and we were extremely pleased. When we arrived everything was spotless and ready for us. The condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is a dream....with everything you may need. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the patio which overlooks the pool. There is a large BBQ and plenty of outdoor outdoor space to relax. The owner and property manager are attentive and easy to deal with. We have already booked for next this place!!
