About Kelly Murphy

The clear, crisp desert landscape is exhilarating. We grew up coming here with our family for years and finally purchased a home of our own. We're the 3rd generation to find this desert enchanting and stress relieving. We know you will too!

Kelly Murphy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kelly Murphy chose Palm Desert

We knew we had to be close to everything the desert has to offer, and Palm Desert sits in the heart of the Coachella Valley. The Lakes Country Club, in particular, was our first choice for the lovely, manicured grounds, sparkling lakes, and the active and friendly Clubhouse.

What makes this condo unique

Whether you wish to hit the town for shopping, fine dining, golf or tennis, or just take it easy in the lovely warm climate, Palm Desert has it all. One of our favorite weekend jaunts is roaming the stalls at the College of the Desert (COD) outdoor Street Fair. They offer everything from a bargain pair of sunglasses to freshly grown local produce. Of course, every good shopper can't miss strolling along El Paseo's promenade of galleries and boutiques. For the golfer, you are surrounded by the finest courses in the world.

Bostonian Golfers

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at The Lakes and really loved it. The property has a very central location surrounded by fun things like countless golf courses and Mortons Steak House and by necessities like Ralphs grocery store. The condominium is very nicely furnished and has a well-appointed kitchen. It was all very comfortable and pleasant, and we'll definitely short-list it if we return to the desert. And the weather was so perfect, such a nice change from the Boston winter.

A very "hot" time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our firstl desert visit at the hottest time of the year, late August, and Kelly your lovely condo had a lot to do with our happy get away being so perfect. Your condo had all that we could possibly have needed for a stay of several weeks let alone the few days we were able to get away. The Lakes is an ideal spot for families and/of couples. Nice to have met Shawn...a bonus for us. See you again.

Luxury retreat in the Palm Desert

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our second stay in 2011 at the Lakes Country Club. Kelly has done a wonderful job in making her "rental" feel more like our own home. She and her husband have thought of all the details that make traveling difficult. Well equipped kitchen; bathroom; bedrooms; outdoor furniture; pool towels etc. Arriving late at night and traveling from the east coast, we were excited to know we did not have to run to the store to purchase soap, coffee and the other small things we all tend to forget when we travel. Everything we needed was at their home which made for a welcome change. They have wonderful indoor and outdoor furniture and a very clean nice to find this gem in the desert. We look forward to coming back to this property. If you are looking for a relaxing rental with high-end furnishings at price tag that will not shock you.....this rental in the Lakes Country Club is a must.
