About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

A perfect setting awaits you here at Palm Valley Country Club in my quaint golf retreat, located steps from the pool and spa and on the gorgeous 17th hole of the Championship course. Why spend more for space when you'll be spending the majority of your time enjoying the amenities?

If one bedroom is all you need, then this is your next vacation rental. Tastefully decorated with an 'island' theme, both the master suite and the den overlook the golf course with comfortable patios just outside each slider. Additional patio space is available outside the kitchen 'pass through'.

As a former NFL and CFL athlete, I know the sound of a good bargain, and this is it! Pets are welcome within reason for an additional security deposit, but please, no smokers. New flooring, televisions and bicycles await your stay!

The most beautiful time of year for sun lovers is still available. October through December is a great time to work on the tan and take a dip. Please, check the calendar for availability. Your security deposit and signed contract will guarantee your fantastic vacation spot here in the Southern California desert. Don't hesitate to call either number on the site for details about the unit or clarification of any of the amenities.

This rare one-bedroom at Palm Valley has both the den and the Master with golf course frontage with their own sliders. Most of the others have the sleeping quarters on the street side of the unit. A prime location is only steps from the pool and has is a single story, so no footsteps above you.

The kitchen is well stocked (tupperware, crock pots, etc) for those who choose to take advantage of a fully furnished condo and save a few dollars by eating in!

I've purposely kept rates at or below my competition and will continue to do so! Additionally, new Holiday Season rates have been established for October through December! Please do not hesitate to reward yourself with a trip out of the torrid winter weather. It will be well worth the investment.

I look forward to developing much repeat business and establishing relationships with my vacationers, not simply providing a place to lay their heads.

About Brian and Penny

I was fortunate to have played professional football for a living before settling into my life in public education. I currently serve as APEX and OCS Director and Head Golf Coach at the newest school in the valley, Shadow Hills High School. My wife Penny works with Special Education students in the same district. Our twins, Nicholas and Shianne will be celebrating their 8th birthday on February 2nd of 2017! Amazing how time flies!!

Brian and Penny purchased this condo in 2006

Why Brian and Penny chose Deserts

We had purchased this unit with the sole intent to use it as a vacation rental. It's unique floor plan, along with its' centralized location in Palm Desert give it appeal. The location on the course is perfect as it is close to the pool and located on the 17th tee box of the Championship course allowing for sleeping in with no distractions until well after 9:00am! The number of repeat renters continues to grow as they understand the units' charm!

What makes this condo unique

You'll be greeted first hand by either Penny, myself, or both. I believe in this web site and removing the middleman. We are full time residents of the Coachella Valley and live only minutes away so as to attend to all of your needs. The condo is situated well away from the Railroad noise others receive here. It's central location in the valley allow ease of access to more than 140 golf courses! Our 23 years of residing here in the valley help us to guide you to the best of the desert .. can't beat it!

Value, Comfort and Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed 10 days in this condo during the Christmas holidays. It is clean and comfortable and has its own garage for your car! The bedroom has a Cal-King bed which is great for tall people. Also, the 1 and 1/2 baths made it "just like home" so we each had our own toilet and sink. The location is wonderful---on the very beautiful Palm Valley Country Club grounds and only steps away from private swimming pools and hot tubs. In addition to swimming, we rode the bikes provided and walked the grounds for local exercise. Brian, the owner, is excellent. He takes very good care of his clients. You will be pleased with the comfort of the condo, the beauty and safety of the country club, and the easy access to restaurants, stores and attractions. The price per night cannot be beat!

2nd Stay with Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Every year my husband and I stay here with our two small children. The condo has a great location adjacent to a pool and very close to the main clubhouse. You have access to the clubhouse pool with new cabanas (no charge, first come, first serve) and a huge hot tub. My kids like the clubhouse pool because there are usually other kids to play with and you can buy delicious food at the grill right next to the pool. It is also nice to enjoy the pool and hot tub right next door as well. Brian is such a gracious host and responds immediately to any questions. We have stayed many years in Palm Desert and this is our go to rental from now on. We use a large queen blow up bed for the kids in the living room and we sleep in the bedroom. This is a great value for the money!

Wonderful Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first time getting out of the Midwest's winter for a month. The owner (Brian) and his daughter (Shianne) were personally at the condo to greet us upon our arrival. The condo is spacious and clean. One of the many pools is literally just steps from the patio. Sitting on the patio affords you beautiful views of the golf course while being surrounded by greenery. Palm Valley C.C. is very quiet and safe. It is convenient to plenty of shopping and lots of places to eat. We have already booked again in 2017.

2nd Stay...Absolutely wonderful for mind, body and spirit!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I stayed at this wonderful place. I could not have been happier! Enjoyed the whirlpool and watching the grass on the golf course grow. Relaxed with my golden retriever Abby and enjoyed getting away from San Francisco.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first trip to Palm Desert. We really enjoyed our stay. Brian was so kind and very accommodating. He grew up not far from this condo, so he was a wealth of information. This condo is in a great location, 5 minutes away from grocery stores. Everything that you will need for your stay is in the condo. The pool is 10 steps away. The property is quite and the grounds are beautiful I enjoyed the humming birds on our patio each morning. I felt very safe here. My husband loves to travel with his bicycle. Palm Desert is so bike friendly with amazing bike paths. Without any hesitation I would recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Jayne and her husband took advantage of VRBO and our Holiday pricing at the last minute. Everything worked out easily for both parties due to the elimination of the 'middle-man' .. Glad you both enjoyed your stay!!

Wonderful Property - Will Stay Here Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time staying at this property and we just loved it. We have stayed at several other condo's in Palm Desert and now enjoy this one the most. A few highlights:

* The extra bathroom is perfect - most 1 bedrooms only have 1 bath

* Brian greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a nice walk-through. This was a pleasant first for us, as most places you just arrive and the owner is not in town.

* This place has an indoor garage which is a huge plus for keeping your call cooler during the hot days.

* I counted - the pool is 24 steps away from the patio and we pretty much had it to ourselves. There are pools all over the place, so you could always venture out if you want.

* The back patio is at the 17th tee-off. This was one of the highlights we really enjoyed. It's a par 3, 147 yards and mostly over water. It was entertaining to see golfers hitting over the water!!

* Two nice bicycles in the garage to ride around the area - nice touch!

* The bedroom patio also looks out over the fairway - just loved all the beautiful green on the course.

* The place is very well stocked. We found everything we needed in regards to kitchen prep, towels, pool towels, etc. etc.

* A short drive to El Paseo which has some nice restaurants. You must try Pacifica Seafood and there amazing Vodka bar. They also have 1/2 off wine bottles on Tuesday's. Great place !!

* The place is very peaceful and quiet. Sure, you have the golfers coming through during the day, but they are pretty quiet and you hardly know they are there.

That's about it. Nothing we didn't like and again, Brian was a pleasure to work with from when we made reservations through our checkout. He lives nearby in the area, which would be handy if any issues came up.
