About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Beautifully remodeled executive condo in the Desert Princess Country Club. 2 master suites with full kitchen, or maybe you'd enjoy using the BBQ and relaxing outside on the patio. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. Walk in closets in both bedrooms for golf clubs and long term stays. Neutral colors and asian feel. This is a very relaxing calm environment for a much needed rest.

Overlooking the 7th Hole and the fountains, the view is a welcome site after along day of shopping, hiking, sightseeing, golfing or tennis. There is a pool and hot tub for every 18 units, but it's never crowded (actually most often no one in sight).

Within the complex the Desert Princess has spa services, a gym and restaurants walking distance from the condo.

Or head out to Palm Springs, we're only 6 street lights from downtown Palm Springs, so you're near everything, yet still in the quiet of Cathedral City.

Another benefit of choosing our condo for your stay is that we pay the 12% hotel tax for you.

Also if you stay 28+ days we give you a 15% discount on your entire stay.

About The Owner

I was born in the United States, but grew up in Canada. Moved to California for college and stayed. My Parents still live in Canada, in fact the reason I bought this condo is that they had planed to retire here.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why The Owner chose Cathedral City Cove

I bought this condo with the intention that my parents would retire here, so in 2006 I remodeled to give it a more Zen like relaxing feel, then in 2017 I remodeled the kitchen and added certain features such as adding a HDTV that is connected to the internet, so you can watch Netflix on the TV, and adding a wine fridge so we could leave a few local wines for tenants.

What makes this condo unique

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo unit, the view from the patio, and its central location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a nice quiet getaway from Canada's cool weather and this place was great. The resort is only a short drive away from the airport (northwest end of Cathedral City), yet we did not hear any planes. The Desert Princess is a well maintained area, beautiful plants/flowers. Our condo was clean, had all the kitchen utensils, pool towels, etc. that we needed. There were three sets of patio chairs/loungers/tables along the back of our bungalow that over looked grass and a pond with a fountain (part of a golf course), so we always were able to sit in or out of the sun. The resort has many pools, and the one we went to was a very short walk, overlooked the golf course, yet felt private and was not busy. The owner was friendly and informative as I always ask questions before booking a place to stay to make sure we will be happy there. We would definitely stay there again the next time we go to Palm Springs. The only issue we had was we found the beds to be a bit hard. The owner told us she is planning to replace them. Ed

NOT "20 paces literally across a lawn" to the pool

  • 3 of 5

Our trip had good and bad! First off, the condo was absolutely gorgeous, well stocked with great linens, pantry staples, electronics, great BBQ and living space. Ms. Paquette was very thoughtful sending flowers to acknowledge my mother's 90th birthday, which was the whole reason we were renting this Unit 67-110. However, we wonder if Ms. Paquette has ever been to her unit? I SPECIFICALLY asked how far the pool was from the unit as I was traveling with my parents who are elderly and can't walk far distances over uneven terrain. She ASSURED ME IN WRITING BEFORE WE COMMITTED TO RENTING that the pool was "20 paces literally across a lawn". This was the most important item!! When we arrived, we found the Unit 67110 was not only NOT CLOSE to the pool, it was 150 PACES across the golf course! Needless to say my parents could not navigate the walk and we had to get into the car and DRIVE to the pool. This also meant that we had to get in the car and DRIVE BACK to the Unit 67110 every time we had to use the bathroom. There was a Unit 67162 that was 20 paces from the pool, but other people were already in that unit. She also indicated on the resort map that Unit 67162 WAS UNIT 67110! This was not the truth at all and very confusing! If we knew that the Unit 67110 was 150 paces from the pool we would NEVER had rented from her. We feel we were terribly misled on this MAIN factor as to why we rented her Unit 67110.We also had a terrible experience with the beds in BOTH rooms. My family and I have traveled all over the world and have NEVER come across such HARD beds!! I had to pad BOTH beds with duvets and blankets just to get a little softness. We all ended up sleeping in the recliners in the living room off and on throughout the entire rental period. Also, the oversized king bed frame outfitted with only a queen sized mattress, projected out in the master bedroom was a danger. On the third day into our trip, my 91 year old father hit his shin on the corner of the protruding bed frame, fell face first and banged his hand which was cut and bled profusely as well as his shin! He was extremely shaken up and upset, not to mention that a trip and fall of this magnitude could have resulted in some MAJOR injuries.Due to his injuries, he was unable to use the pool the entire time we were there, with temps hitting the low 100's, This was very uncomfortable for him in this weather.With these factors, our experience renting from her was very disappointing.

Nice condo but

  • 3 of 5

Taking into consideration we rented at the end of what I'm sure was a busy rental season, there was a number of things that needed attention. Bedroom carpets needed to be cleaned, one toilet had a broken lid, a door knob pulled out of a closet door. The propane tank was empty in the bar-b-que. The front screen door had a large hole in it that the flies found quickly. The ceiling fans are a nice touch but one bedroom fan didn't work. Having said all that, Lots of really nice towels and everything you could ever need in the kitchen and bathrooms. The owners where easy to work with during the reservation process. The golf course is excellent. A nice grocery store, Starbucks and restaurants are very close by. From the patio the view of the golf course is great but a row of condo patios are also facing you across a small greenway. With some repair this could a nice condo.
