A Gem In The Heart Of Palm Desert

5 of 5
Our condo at Sandroc was outstanding. The location alone was well worth it, but the updated decor and the access to the pool area along with the close parking were all bonuses. The A/C worked well and kept us cool along with all the available ceiling fans. Nicole was more than accommodating with any question/issue we had. This condo is an absolute must when visiting Palm Desert. We’ll be back.

We stayed at this property for a couple of weeks in March. This quiet neighbourhood is very central to a lot of amenities. The house has tons of usable space. The kitchen has a well stocked supply of everything that one would need. The yard is very cosy and private, the garden is nicely landscaped and has a ton of colour with the bougainvillea vines. Great spot to enjoy a cup of coffee. The Property Management Team went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was enjoyable. We will certainly stay here again. Greg and Lorraine
