About the property

Welcome Snowbirds! Spend those cold winter months by the pool!

Our spacious (1525 sq. ft.) upstairs end unit is bright and open and its surrounded by acacia and palm trees that keep in cool in the afternoon. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a fireplace that lights easily at night to keep you cozy. Enjoy beautiful views of the lake and mountains while you have coffee and breakfast on the furnished balcony and watch the ducks play in the lake out front.

This condo is located within the Palmer Residence conveniently close to the Stadium Club House. Stadium Club is open to the public with an excellent restaurant and a fun pub called Ernies’s.

The home is laid out so that the master bedroom overlooks the lake and is separated from the other two bedrooms located at the other end facing west. Every bedroom has a queen size bed.

The living room is inviting and roomy. When the sun falls behind the mountains and it cools down, enjoy the evenings by the fireplace while you watch a movie on the 46' HD TV with cable and a DVD/BlueRay player.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the expected essentials including a coffee maker, toaster, wine opener...

You can expect excellent bedding and towels throughout including beach towels to take to the pool. There is free wifi and a washer and dryer to make life a little more comfortable as well.

Speaking of the pool, one of PGA West’s many beautiful and heated pools (13BB) is located a scant 102 steps from our front door and it has an accompanying jacuzzi with a view of the golf course and mountains. If you want to take a longer walk, the second closest pool (8GB) is 203 steps away and it has a lake view with a waterfall.

If location is everything, then we’ve got it all. This home is located four miles from the village of La Quinta where you will find live entertainment, a bevy of great restaurants, a market and boutique shopping. The famous Silver Rock golf course is 1.5 miles away. We are also just three miles from the Empire Polo Grounds where you’ll find a great tavern called the Tack Room. This is also the site of the Coachella Valley Music Festival and Stagecoach Music Festival.

We want you to enjoy your stay at our lovely little Desert Shangri La. That's why we try to provide everything you need to have a truly great stay including a pair of bikes to cruise around on and a complimentary bottle of champagne and orange juice for morning mimosas. It's our way of welcoming you to the desert way of life.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Staying in the condo for 2 weeks was great. Carrie responded to my questions rapidly, gave great details about everything in the condo as well as PGA West and surrounding areas. The condo was clean and well equipped with 2 bikes and some golf clubs even. This condo is about 4 miles away from Old Town LaQuinta so it is a little removed if your looking for something close to town. However, it is very peaceful and quiet and the neighbors are friendly and helpful.

Perfect fit

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfectly located for a golf tournament my son was playing in. It was very clean and comfortable. The owner was so accommodating and welcoming. She was very quick in responding to any need we may have. The facilities are wonderful around the condo. We rode bikes around the community and saw big horn sheep. The pools were also easily accessible. We will definitely stay here again, I think it improved his game.

Excellent condo in prime La Quinta area

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, nicely decorated, and welcoming. On our arrival, the owners had drinks for us waiting in the fridge. The condo is in a great location conveniently located to desert area attractions. We loved the area with pools easily accessible and nice walking areas. The owner is very responsive and was great to communicate with regarding our plans and stay. I would highly recommend!
