About Kathy Brown

I have been in Real Estate/Property Management for 20 years. I promise I will do whatever I can do to make your stay special. I understand the needs of a traveler and what can make them feel at home.

Kathy Brown purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kathy Brown chose Palm Desert

This is the best central location for all of the Coachella Valley and the BEST SOUTHERN location with Pool 25 directly in backyard in all of Monterey Country Club!!!! Southern exposure and steps to pool #25 and jacuzzi directly in backyard. #BESTLOCATION in all of MCC just look at the MCC Map!!! And centrally located to Coachella Valley and El Paseo for shopping!

Close to 120 Golf Courses to choose from Over 3 million Tourists flock to the Coachella Valley each year to play Golf on some of the most beautiful and manicured golf courses on the planet! Temp is perfect nearly year round to enjoy a round of links in splendid Desert beauty.

This Immaculate, condo also has the beautiful tile roof NOT the wood shake roof! I am also at the South Gate the newer built condo's at MCC with double paned windows, six panelled doors & raised cabinet doors! On TBOX 4 ( Longer golf course) no golf balls are hit towards this condo.

What makes this condo unique

BEST Southern Location in all of MCC with two great remodeled decks and two BBQ Grills(One gas grill & one propane grill)

This immaculate,condo is a tranquil and peaceful, home in Paradise! Luxury living furnished as a private home from the good Henckel knives to the high end bedding to the numerous serving dishes. Entertainers dream place. *This condo is the BEST SOUTHERN EXPOSURE location in all of Monterey with swimming pool #25 and jacuzzi directly in backyard! *This is NOT your typical rental.* Luxurious furnishings make it extra special! I expect the condo to be left sanitary and clean. I go to a lot of trouble and expense to make sure the condo is immaculate,sanitary clean!

Awesome Month of Fun and Sun

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo deserves an "A" rating. It is extremely clean, well decorated with comfortable furniture, a full kitchen of supplies and a perfect location facing south at the 4th tee . This is my favorite country club. Everyone who works there, from the front gate to the dining room is always so friendly and helpful. The grounds and landscaping are carefully maintained and flowers are always in bloom. A shopping area is just down the street but you might also like the mall or El Paseo which is a very short drive. Finding a place to eat is never a problem either. Any kind of food is available for indoor or outdoor dining.

Vacation Nightmare

  • 1 of 5

This condo is in a prime location in Palm Dessert. The decor and colors were not to our liking but that did not deter us; however, the owner's actions should.

Initally, the owner was helpful and cordial. After receiving our rental money and security deposit her demeanour radically changed.

The home, which appears to be her primary residence which she vacates for rentals can't be properly used since it is filled with all of her belongings. For example, the attached garage is filled with boxes leaving your vehicle exposed to the elements of Palm Dessert. Over half of the closets and drawers are filled with the owner's belongs. Many of the cupboards and fridge are full with food and supplies (which you are not permitted to use) allowing little to no space for groceries.

While a cursory inspection upon arrival did not reveal any concerns, unbeknownst to us, the blender (which we tried to use once and notified the owner that it did not work) and CD player (whcih we never used - we don't even own CDs) did not work.

Do not expect full or unfettered access and use of the rental property. The owner contacted us numerous times for various reasons. She decided during our stay to perform unnecessary patio work which in addition to being disruptive, denied us access to the unit from the main entrance.

Since departing, the owner has sent us an invoice for multiple cleaning services. One, for a month beore we arrived, another for a mid-term cleaning, which she initially stated was free, and lastly an exorbitant departure cleaning fee , notwithstanding that we left the unit in the same condition we found it.

The owner notified us on multiple occassions that she intended to show the unit to prospective tenants and often failed to show up resulting in wasted vacation days for us as we waited for her.

In at least 15 previous bookings with VRBO we have never been denied the return of our security deposit. We left the unit in the same condition we found it. We have since received an itemized list for alleged damages to the blinds (which were taped), stove, dishwasher, CD player and blender. She betrays the credibility and trust inherent in a VRBO listing. To put icing on the cake, she alleges she is seeking legal recourse against us and as such we have had to retain legal counsel. We hope nobody has to experience what we went through or is subjected to similar treatment.

Owner's Response: I have over 25 years experience in Property Management & have had over 75 rentals in this condo. All my renters have been happy with many repeat renters, look at my other reviews!! These renters have written a vindictive review full of lies because I did send them an itemized bill for the damage they caused to my condo from their negligence!! This matter will be going to small claims court against them with many witnesses, photographs, receipts & video tape! I have never had such a bad experience with any tenants ever. The tenant's letter to me when they left "WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY" etc. Not only did they break my dishwasher & not notify me of it for approximately THREE weeks with Water,Mold,Food, & Bacteria standing in it making it impossible to fix. Then the brand new Bosch Dishwasher they broke it as well again without notifying me again until approx THREE more weeks after they broke it. This clearly is tenant negligence! Also burning my oven inside causing burn marks on the door, burned glass and burned seal with no notification! A new stove had to be ordered. I did have a gas leak that was a danger and had to be fixed in my front court yard while they were there. They also put dirty dishes, glasses, utensils, silverware,pots & pans with clean causing every single item in the kitchen to to washed with many hours of cleaning. I take great pride in having a "Hair & food drawer clean condo" and I pay a lot of money to have it immaculate. They left the condo filthy it was in no way the same condition they found it. I promise you no one would be happy as a Property Manager, Home Owner or tenant to rent my condo in the condition they left it! Disgusting! I did show the condo one day by appointment with tenants to show to perspective tenants, I was totally embarrassed from the filth that I started cleaning the condo myself and NEVER showed it again because it was disgusting. The closets have nothing in them as well as an entire bedroom set with empty drawers. My garage is not included in this rental and many home owners and tenants park outside in their drive ways. This is not acceptable for any rental and will be contacting them through the court system. Nightmare tenants!!

I look forward to my stay at this beautiful condo! I come every year at this time and it is the best! You can't ask for a better location. The pool is within a few yards of the patio along with the TBox. If you want to relax in luxury, rent this condo.

a rental house that felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Can highly recommend this property. We found everything we needed for a month's stay & in very good condition. The heated pool being only steps away was an added bonus. Will certainly book this house again.

The best

  • 5 of 5

This was just the best. Meets all the needs. Kathy was just great to deal with. Very helpful. Having the pool right out your back door is all you want and need. The home had everything and more. Loved it and would recommend it to everyone. Can hardly wait for next year to go there again.
