About Nancy

My husband and I live in San Diego and love the desert! We decided to purchase a condo of our own in 2013 so we could make it as homey as our permanent home! We like the desert in the summer, so we decided to let others enjoy our little piece of heaven when we're not there!

Nancy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nancy chose Palm Desert

We found Monterey Country Club to be the perfect location. It has easy access to all the desert has to offer! It is a clean, quiet community in the center of everything!

What makes this condo unique

The location is perfect. Not near any noisy streets - towards the end of a cul de sac.

Terrific, spacious Monterey CC vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 1/2 weeks stay at Serena Drive, with its East facing xl patio to capture the morning sun. The pool was close by, and having access to the golf cart came in handy once or twice. The best part was the huge sectional sofa which was comfortable and roomy enough for five adults when we had visitors. Eric and Nancy were quick to respond to any questions we had, and we really appreciated that we could bring our dog!

Absolutely perfect, an amazingly spacious comfortable condo in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful vacation spot for our family, so comfortable, the condo had all the things you need and more. The people in the neighbourhood were so friendly and it’s so peaceful to relax either on the patio or by the pool. The pools were very nice temperatures, the grounds are immaculate. Eric and Nancy were so organized from the booking to the arrival to the good bye time. They made it effortless and stress free. We definitely would come back. Our family memories just grew deeper because of the special time here, thank you Eric and Nancy for the stay, we want to book again!

Meticulously clean, well stocked, extremely convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early Nov 2017 for a conference at the Omni resort. The most remarkable part of the house was that it really felt like we were at home rather than in a sterilized, the everyday items were available to us and we did not have to run to the store every time we needed something, such as tape to mail a package. The wireless internet was fast and reliable. The owners left a very detailed binder that answered every question we had. They clearly put a lot of personal effort into this rental rather than just turning it over to a generic management company. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is truly a gem, simply for these reasons alone...however, everything else about this home was also top notch.

The house was perfectly clean. The kitchen was well stocked with many appliances and gadgets that are typically not available in rentals. They had an assortment of appliances and coffee makers and provided k-cups as well as filters. We love to cook, and this kitchen also had all the traditional spices we needed as well as oils, sugar, and many other ingredients. There were lots of serving platters and bar ware available for entertaining, on top of the normal place settings. They also had paper products (plates, cups, napkins, foils, plastic wrap, baggies, etc.) This is generally unexpected in vacation rentals, but sincerely appreciated. We enjoyed eating many of our meals on the patio by the golf course. The lighted umbrella, combined with some of their candles, made it feel magical after dark.

The beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood was extremely quiet. Neighbors were quiet but friendly. The laundry area was stocked with laundry soap and cleaning supplies. They had high quality towels and extra pillows and linens. The garage was stocked with a tool box, a cooler, pool items, camp-type chairs, etc. They even had a golf cart available for our use.

We enjoyed the hot tub (very hot with strong jets) and pool (unheated) which were about a one minute walk from the house. The water was very clean and the area was well maintained. We were the only ones in it every time we went so it felt private.

The location was perfect. Bicycles (with locks) were provided and we were able to ride to the Omni in less than10 minutes through a quiet neighborhood on safe streets. Incidentally, the scenery on the way was a pleasant surprise--horse farms in the middle of a very upscale neighborhood.

Perfect for a small professional retreat or family/friend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I'm the director of a non-profit board and we utilized this property for a weekend strategic planning retreat. The condo was an absolute hit! From the gorgeous decor to the stunning views, outdoor living spaces (where we ate our meals, started our mornings with coffee overlooking the golf course, and spent the evenings gazing at the stars), comfortable beds, and well stocked fridge/pantry, our experience was top notch. Not only will I be renting this condo again for these sorts of professional retreats, but I also intend to bring family and friends!

Wonderful Stay in Palm Desert!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this property and had a wonderful vacation. The condo is nicely appointed, everything you could possibly need for your stay is available. The interior and decorating is beautiful, beds are comfortable, quiet location with a nice view. The golf cart, bikes and swim gear was nice. The owners have a manual for guests with information about the condo, country club, nearby grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Very organized. We arrived and on the table was a nice note and cookies, which was very thoughtful. We will definitely stay at this property again. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Our property is in the middle of everything you could want from the desert! Great shopping, dining, hiking, biking.... Whatever you need is most likely located within a 1 mile radius. We believe this is the best location in the desert!
