We are Canadians living in the Vancouver, British Columbia area and have recently retired.

TERRY VAN DER LEEST purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why TERRY VAN DER LEEST chose Century Park

For many, many years we vacationed in the Palm Springs area and finally got the opportunity to purchase our own place about 8 years ago. We wanted it to be a true oasis for us so we hired a pool consultant and landscaper to turn our backyard into a resort-like setting which is truly the outstanding feature of our home.

Awesome Palm Springs Rental! Hated to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two weeks in this lovely vacation rental. The owner (Terry) was very nice to deal with from initial booking and throughout our stay. The house is clean and super organized. We did not want for anything during our stay. Beds are comfy and kitchen has everything that you could possibly want and more. Loved the fact that there were dishes for inside and outside. Nice TV and sound system (inside and out). The house is nicely decorated and felt very cozy while still being light and bright. Loved the Frank Sinatra painting in the dining/living room! The back yard was our favorite spot. After golfing all day, it was so nice to have a private oasis to return to during the evenings. The pool and spa area are excellent and you can see the attention to detail given to this space. The location is very central and in the middle of anything that you would want to do, with easy access to the 10 and 111. We would have rented this house again for next November if it was available, sadly it is not, but we would definitely return to Terry's house in a heart beat and most likely will! Thanks for everything Terry and Happy New Year! :)

The gold standard

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect place for our family reunion. We were impressed with how well it was stocked with whatever we needed in the kitchen, bathrooms, and even pool toys. Previous renters had left food items which were not consumed which was a help. Terry is very well organized, having left a very detailed binder with instructions for everything in the house. He also responded very quickly to any questions I had. The house is large and the four bedrooms were perfect for us. The pool and spa as well as the fire pit and BBQ grill were a real treat to use. We would happily stay here again.

Great Golf Escape

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of senior golfers who escape the cold Midwest weather (and this year, Super Bowl LII) every year for more than 15 years in a row, and journey to Palm Springs in February. This house is by far the best we've stayed. It is centrally located to most of the courses we play, and an easy drive to whatever we needed. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. On our arrival day, the spa heat wasn't working, so the owner had his pool guy out the next day to make repairs. The house is comfortable and clean. The neighbors have a dog that likes to chat a bit during the day, but it wasn't noticeable in the evenings. We would definitely stay here again.

Milton, Ontario Canada.

Wonderful home absolutely charming.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I began my booking everything was excellent. The home was everything I had hoped for and exceeded my expectations. The home was close to everything and on quiet street. Yard and pool were great and home owners were just a quick call away to answer any questions I had concerning the home. Would highly recommend this property.
