Palm Villas Condo Description

This desert getaway is perfect for feeling at home and for being in the middle of everything Palm Springs and the other desert communities have to offer. This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo that has experienced a good deal of updates such as addition of ceiling fans and updated lighting and kitchen updates.

This is a ground floor unit of 1230 sq. ft that is completely furnished and offers every amenity for which you could wish. There is a new California King bed in the master bedroom and a queen in the guest bedroom. Another queen bed is available as a couch fold out that includes a new 3” memory foam mattress pad. There is a large patio in front and each bedroom has it’s own patio. Master bedroom has a large, well lit, walk-in closet. The bedrooms and living room are equipped with blinds for sun when you want it or privacy when desired. Flooring is a mixture of tile and carpet with bedrooms being carpeted.

This Palm Villas unit offers one area of pool, spa, and BBQ that is just steps from the front door or patio. The 2 tennis courts are just behind the unit. Palm Villas is a gated community and the unit includes a reserved, covered parking space. Green belts run through the community. Palm Villas is a quiet community where enjoying the sun and views or reading are a pleasure.

Downtown Palm Springs is just 2 miles away for walking, and shopping, the popular Palm Canyon Drive. Golfing, tennis, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, grocery stores and drugstores are all very close at hand. The famous shopping street of El Paseo, the Westfield Mall, and The River are just down the road along with The Living Zoo.

If you are celebrating your golden years, as I am, you would like to know that the Mizell Senior Center is only 5 blocks down Ramon. They offer activities everyday and they range from Bingo to Mah-Jongg to Bridge to language and computer lessons and more. Lunch is a whopping $4.00, member or not. Just around the block is the Palm Springs Public Library and you will have access to a library card while you are here.

*    High speed WI-FI provided

*    Free calling to the USA and to Canada included

*    Full size washer and dryer

*    LED or LCD flat screen TVs along with DVD/CD players are in the living room and both


*    Kitchen has a five burner gas stove as well as full size oven and all cooking appliances

    and tools you could want.

*    You will not hear it but Palm Springs International Airport is less than five minutes away.

My comfortable, enjoyable and convenient condo is ready for you to getaway from it all.

About Gary D Kelb

I am a Missouri farm boy that spent 30 yrs with DOD in Germany so no going back home after that. I relocated to the desert as I loved it on all visit to my retired step-father. I have an adopted Romanian son who lives with his wife in Paraguay and two loveable dogs at home. Traveling is my passion.

Gary D Kelb purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gary D Kelb chose Palm Springs

I live less than 5 minutes from this property so I looked into it for an investment property. That one is a full time rental. I loved the location and amenities and the active HOA. In May 2014 I purchased a condo that can be marketed as a seasonal rental. I love 'getting my hands dirty' and have enjoyed investing many, many hours to bring this condo to the market again.

What makes this condo unique

This Association is central to everything in Palm Springs. Whether it is the Indian Canyons, the Tram, Downtown, or museums, this is a great location. The amenities associated with the condo are second to none with pool, hot tub, grills, and tennis courts all just steps away. Access to other desert cities is easy with several options for heading East.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in great condition, the owner really cares about his property and was easy to reach if needed. It's in a great location just a few blocks away from the airport and was very quiet while we stayed there.

"He's got everything"

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Gary's condo. It was a relaxing girls-only week with 3 retired school buddies. The condo fit its description perfectly. We found everything as described and very clean. The kitchen was stocked completely and a joy to cook in. We arrived to a binder full of information about restaurants and things to do around Palm Springs, including local hikes. All the information was extremely well organized. The condo is in a perfect location, close to the main streets with restaurants and shopping and the Thursday evening street fair. The location is also great for traveling to Joshua Tree National Park, Anza Borrego Desert-State Park and the ladder trail in the Painted Canyon. Gary is the perfect host, very accommodating and easy to deal with. By the time we left we felt like we were leaving a friend. Our mantra became "he's got everything". Definitely would recommend and rent again!

Awesome stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gary for a great stay. Gary personally greeted us when we first arrived and showed us how everything worked. The place has ample room - 2 bedrooms and a large kitchen with appliances, dishes, etc. There was also a full size washer and dryer which was a tremendous help. The location was convenient to shopping and Palm Canyon area. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks so much Gary.

Great location + Great space + Great time + Great service = Great time.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was ideal for two couples and fully outfitted with everything you would need. The location in Palm Springs is excellent and easy to get places. The pool was one of the best.
