About Terry Berg or Bev Berg

We live in the Vancouver area and have been visiting the Palm Springs area since 2006 when we purchased our first vacation property in La Quinta.

Terry Berg or Bev Berg purchased this condo in 2012

Why Terry Berg or Bev Berg chose Palm Desert

This property is a midcentury modern 'gem' and we just fell in love with it the first time we saw it. We were not even looking to buy yet, a month later, we owned it!

What makes this condo unique

The design of this home brings the outdoors in with all the glass doors and clerestory windows. The Sandpiper community has strict controls on the exteriors so, everything looks as it did in the 50's and 60's when it was built. Thats what drew us to this location.

And speaking of location, we love the walkability to great restaurants, some with live jazz music (Back Street Bistro) as well as to some the most popular hiking trails in the valley. Also Macy's is right across the street at the Westfield mall!

Top Quality Unit and Location in Palm Desert

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property for portions of the past few years. The owners have invested the time and expense to maintain and upgrade the property that is not commonly seen in the rental world. It is a large unit with a very sizable private patio as well as the second patio which faces onto the lovely landscaping and pool. Additionally, it has good quality appliances, is in a very scenic location and is probably in the most convenient location in the desert in terms of this quality of accommodation with walking access to a very wide range of services for shopping, eating, etc.

Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having spent two weeks in this beautiful condo, I can't say enough about it - it is beautifully renovated and furnished, and there is not a thing you could want by way of kitchen equipment, bathroom towels etc. The location across from the pool is wonderful and the patio is the best place to sit back and relax. The beautiful mountain views are a sight to behold. This has to be the best condo for rent in Palm Desert ........absolute perfection!!

Terry is wonderful to deal with - he made everything so easy!!

The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, the perfect vacation. With a place like this to call home, you'll struggle with ever leaving! This beautiful condo is clean, spacious, and captures the desert vibe perfectly. You'll find it stocked with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful, quiet escape from everyday life. We found the pool to be just what we needed for both lounge and play time; quaint and quiet. The small handful of neighbors we chatted with were all lovely. Beautiful grounds, and a nice location about 20 minutes out of Palm Springs. What a special find in the desert! We will be back!

Best place in Palm Desert

  • 5 of 5

Selfishly, I don't want to give away the secret of this amazing rental. Our family stays in Palm Springs/Palm Desert/La Quinta 3-4 times a year, and we have finally found our favorite place. The house is large, perfectly appointed, and in the absolute best location. We appreciated all of the updated technology and fully stocked kitchen. The pool was perfect for adults and children, and we had it to ourselves practically the entire time. This is truly a special find in the desert. We hope to be back very soon.
