Why Christopher Ostby chose Deserts

Marrakesh Country Club located on Portola Avenue in South Palm Desert, was developed by John Dawson in 1970. It is best known for its beautiful golf course and spacious condominiums designed on a Moroccan theme with high ceilings, large walk-in closets and 10ft. tall sliding glass doors. The challenging 3,650 yard 18-hole golf course is a Ted Robinson designed par 60 executive course. Fourteen pools and spas, a fitness center, two lighted tennis courts and a regulation croquet course are but a few of the amenities. With only 364 homes and 275 golf members Marrakesh is a small club in a unique and pristine setting.

A special place in the Coachella

  • 5 of 5

Two months have brought record rain, washed out roads and some frequent chilly daytime temps. Do we care? No. This home with its high ceilings, doors and windows, a short walk from the clubhouse, 3 minutes from El Paseo, is our happy place. The staff here at Marrakesh are friendly and accommodating. The tiny kitchen has everything needed: I actually cooked and entertained. Two outdoor patios were perfect with changing sun and wind angles. Thank you, Chris. See you next season.

Fabulous home in beautiful Marrakesh Country Club

  • 5 of 5

The golf course and mountain views are spectacular and the amenities are superb in this immaculate home. Chris thinks of everything and the attention to detail is very telling. The furnishings, appliances, dishes and art work are first class. The location is perfect for all that there is to see and do in the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area. Chris is a great guy and exceptionally accommodating. We stayed for one month, thoroughly enjoyed our visit and left wanting more. We also liked the security of being in a gated community. Two thumbs up!

Taking a Break!

  • 5 of 5

“My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at your condo. The setting is beautiful as is the condo itself. We found it clean and well supplied with the essentials. We had no problems and were able to relax and have fun in some great weather. Situated closed to everything you need. Groceries and all the other stuff you don't need but want. El Paseo! Minutes to the COD market on weekends. And close to all the golf you can duff. Highly recommended. We will return.”

Lovely, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

This house was gorgeous - modern, but classic and comfortable! The beds were super comfortable as well. The house is conveniently located next to a pool and just a 2 minute walk from the tennis courts and a 5 minute walk to the clubhouse. 30 minute walk to El Paseo if you want to stretch the legs. We stayed here for Easter week with family in other houses within the development. It was so relaxing to walk from spot to spot. It's a super tranquil neighborhood and feels like you stepped back in time with everyone saying hi and the fun pink, Hollywood Regency-style houses. The house also had a beautiful view of the mountains as well.

Reminiscent of the rosy sandstone walls, snow-capped mountains, citrus groves and desert terrain of Morocco, Marrakesh Country Club blends classic Hollywood Regency design with the allure of Morocco, perfecting the desert lifestyle.

Outdoor recreation abounds. From spirited rounds of golf on our breathtaking 18-hole executive golf course to friendly games of tennis or, when ready to unwind, recline on a poolside lounge chair at one of the 14 pristine pools. Marrakesh provides ample opportunities for socializing, networking, dining and recreation amidst serene natural beauty, complete with fiery sunsets. Members become friends and cherish experiences for a lifetime.
