Jane Workman purchased this house in 2014

Why Jane Workman chose Palm Desert

My husband and I grew up in Southern California and visited Palm Desert many times since childhood. We have found so much to do in the area, and weather so perfect, that when the time was right, I purchased this home to offer as a vacation rental for others.

What makes this house unique

Having looked at many other communities, and discussed options with many seasoned vacation renters, we choose Sun City Palm Desert for the incomparable amount of amenities and activities they offer to tenants. We choose this home after looking at over 100 other homes in Sun City. The home has a great floor plan, is beautifully appointed, in excellent condition and has a views out at the beautiful pool and landscape with a covered patio perfect for sunbathing, entertaining, dining and watching the flames of the outdoor fireplace at night. We opted for a home offering privacy, and quiet, while being just a few blocks from the golf course and clubhouses.

We also appreciated the quality of the furnishings, appliances and building materials in this home. We have continued to bring in new housewares, linens, towels, and decor in keeping with the quality of the home.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this house was a relaxing retreat. Everything is provided with plenty of extra towels, blankets, pillows, etc., and a nicely decorated house. The pool is gorgeous with a waterfall/spa and the outside seating is ample with a nice area with a fireplace. We came with some friends and it was a perfect place to stay! The "open" living/dining/kitchen is wonderful and the street is quiet. There is a gorgeous clubhouse with a coffee cafe and an art show was ongoing during the time we were there. There is a lot to do and it is close to shopping, restaurants, and golf. I highly recommend staying here.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

Can't praise this place enough. It is a real cut above the "normal" desert rental. Wonderfully tasteful furnishings and decor. Great bedding and kitchen wares. It felt more like being in a high end hotel.

The indoor/outdoor living is what really makes this place so special though. The pool is a beautiful focal point whether in or out of doors. The patio has a long retractable awning that allows for pretty much all day lounging. And when the sun goes down, there is a outdoor fireplace to sip your wine by. We had a wonderful time here and would come again.

South Pasadena, CA


  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully and comfortably appointed and located on a quiet street. The gourmet kitchen was perfect for entertaining and preparing casual meals. The layout of the home gave all visitors privacy and plenty of opportunity to be together or enjoy some quiet time alone. The home's outdoor pool and spa were a wonderful and an inviting luxury that reminded us of being on a private island. We explored the community amenities by riding bikes on the quiet streets and bike paths and loved having so many recreation and dining options. We can't wait to return.
