Why Laura Rangel chose Palm Desert
Location, location, location. You're on vacation so you want to be in the middle of the action. This condo allows you to walk to the "it" street of the desert to stroll for restaurants, art galleries and bars. Sitting between Palm Springs and La Quinta you're a short drive to other city destinations.
What makes this Condo unique
Pool / Spa
We had a great stay at Laura's Palm Desert property. The home and yard are larger and nicer that the photos appear. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on opposite wings of the house creating 2 suites with full baths. For 2 adult couples we found this arrangement perfect.
The house had everything you may need for your stay including kitchen utensils. Pluses were: salad spinner, nice glassware including wine glasses, plastic glasses for the patio, cocktail shaker and a closet full of games. The location is excellent. We enjoyed everything about the property especially coffee on the patio with the hummingbirds and the post-golf hot tub.
Beautiful, so comfortable and a perfect location.
What a wonderful stay we have had in this very comfortable and beautifully decorated family home. We love it here! The backyard was the highlight for us. It was so special to be able to eat all our meals outside in November and December. The cactus garden, flowers and hummingbirds put on quite the show. And did we mention the salt water spa!!! Fabulous.
Thank you L & S for making our stay so comfortable and for your amazing attention to detail. We had everything we needed and more. We are looking forward to coming back next year.
It was a perfect family getaway!
This property is far more spacious than the photos show. It is appointed nicely and plenty of room for entertaining guests. The BBQ setup is deluxe, as is the salt water hot tub. We also loved the location. The King sized bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and our daughter was spoiled with the Queen sized bed in the second bedroom. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Loved it.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We appreciate how lovely you were to work with in setting reservation and throughout your stay. We are glad you enjoyed your time in the desert.
Oasis in the desert
We enjoyed the location - within easy walking, biking distances of El Paseo environs, hiking trails etc. The kitchen was well equipped and the Viking gas stove was wonderful. The very private backyard and hot tub were delightful. Very roomy space.
Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to hosting you upon your return next year!
Palm Desert Retreat
We had a wonderful time in Palm Desert. The home is well maintained and comfortable for what it is. We were able to enjoy the proximity to El Paseo and other shopping and restaurants, etc. If the weather had been a bit warmer the walk would have been an easy 20 - 25 minute stroll each way to the shops and restaurants.
Shadow Mountain Resort (very close by) does not allow for use of the tennis courts or pool which ended up being fine for us but if you're looking for close tennis or pool you may need to make other arrangements. I had other arrangements for a tennis camp but would have liked to have access to pool/tennis during this visit. You may be able to call ahead and make arrangements directly with the resort but I suspect there would be an additional fee. We were able to get in touch directly with the tennis pro who was willing to offer lessons and drills but not court time.
All in all, a lovely property but would likely not stay here again given that there are no amenities (pool, tennis, golf, etc.). The hot tub is nice but it was malfunctioning for us initially. That said, Laura was very responsive and available (even though we were there over the holidays).
The house is very quiet despite being on a fairly busy street. We only used one of the bedrooms which was very spacious and comfortable with sliding doors to the back yard area. The kitchen has everything you would need to both be comfortable but also to entertain. The table could seat up to 8 with additional seating available. Appliances and tools were perfect.
While my review sounds somewhat negative the experience was not negative - just wanted to offer practical advice for others as to what's available.
Thank you for your thoughtful review. We agree with your overall advice and wish to add some color for future renter's consideration.
Our condo is a wonderfully warm and inviting home away from home for weekend getaways or seasonal stays. Close to the El Paseo, it is a short walk as you mentioned or, with the use of our 4 bicycles, it allows you to arrive within minutes. We are glad to hear you considered our home to be quiet. We agree; as our street is not considered a busy street, but rather a non-thorough fare that primarily has residential traffic to and from.
Our home affords privacy with two ensuites and a private gated backyard with inground spa. Due to the unusually cold weather, the gas spa took longer than normal to heat during the first use. The temp can be adjusted to fit the renter's desire. The gas heater is on a timer to be conscientious of the environment and usually takes no more than 30-45 minutes to heat.
We are located near Shadow Mountain Club which has a private golf, tennis and pool facility. While we do belong to this club, use of their facilities officially requires an accompanying member or arranging independently for paid tennis lessons or tournaments. We try to make this clear and apologize if you believed otherwise. There are also many public golf and tennis facilities throughout the desert that are within a few minutes drive of our home. These are provided in the hospitality book and app upon rental.
Thank you for your feedback regarding responsiveness. We try our best to accommodate any issues or concerns that arise during our guests' stay. We have a wonderful support team of a handyman, housekeeper, and specialists at the ready should there be a need.
Wishing you wondeful journeys and adventures in your future!
Beautiful condo and setting
Great experience in a wonderful setting. The condo is spacious and very nice. We particularly enjoyed the easy access to the patio and garden. We came with our parents and the condo was great for two couples.
I would highly recommend this well decorated home. Awesome location. We enjoyed the neighboring pool as well.
Owners were very kind and made our stay great.....
Thank you so much for your kind review. We'd love to host you whenever you come back to PD. Happy holidays
