Hello Marlene: Well, we are back home and still talking about our wonderful vacation. The only downside was that we had to leave the great location and wonderful climate. Your condo is beautiful and the view from the patio at different times of the day great. The entire complex is lovely and the gardens and views from various places spectacular. My husband and son enjoyed golfing both at Palm Valley and the many courses nearby.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We left it as we found it - all towels laundered, sheets in the second bedroom done. We hope to return to Palm Desert again soon.

Description is nicer than reality.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is situated in the beautifully designed and very well kept Palm Valley Country Club with two 18 holes golfcourses. This is really a 5* Country Club. The 46 pools and jacuzzis are free, but we paid $ 18 p.p.p.d. for the gym and $ 10 p.p.p.d. for a tenniscourt. The condo itself is average, the amenities are fine. Under "Entertainment" in the description is mentioned a CD-player as first item. Music is very important for us. We looked everywhere, but there was no CD-player at all. That was very disappointing. The living room is nice with a mirrored wall and has a rather new pink carpet and a purple sofa, on which the guests are not allowed to eat or to drink. The bed in the guest bedroom is fine, but the bed in the master bedroom is so hard, old and worn that we changed beds halfway our stay so that we each could have some good nights. Kitchen and bath rooms are also old and for the photo of the entire kitchen the photographer has used a lense that makes the kitchen out of proportions. The large kitchen closet and some drawers contained a big mess. Broadband internet was the best we had in all rentals, but during our stay the owner expected that we would stay in the condo on the 2nd day of our stay from 12 - 5 PM (with 1 day notice), because a new internet provider had to change the cables and an adult had to be present. The appointment was made long before our reservation. We refused. Later we heard from acqaintances that the job in and outside this condo took 1 1/2 days. We enjoyed our stay in the Palm Valley C.C. very much, we'll certainly come back, but then we'll check the VRBO website for better offers.

Owner's Response: Bartjens so sorry it did not meet with your expectations. I had tried to accommodate you with every request you made. I had looked at my description and could not find mention of a CD player. I.however have 2 state of the art players in each bedroom and Blu-ray Disc Players. After your departure I had remodeled both bathrooms, hallway and kitchen with recessed LED lighting, dimmers and contemporary screw less plates that are beautiful as well as functional. The cable guy was at my place exactly at the time I had called you for permission. There would have been no waiting, but I understand that you did not want him to disturb you. Before you moved in you requested that I give you a discount even though it was a holiday week, Thanksgiving, because VRBO charged their service fee. I accommodated you with your request, even though I had not done that before. I was just trying to make you happy. All of my prior reviews by past guests are accurate. Everyone does think my place is beautiful, comfortable, spotless with a great location...and now the new LED recessed lights makes it even more wonderful. FYI - After your stay, there is a couple renting my place for 4.5 months who commented that it was beautiful when they first arrived and are very happy.

Fabulous stay in a comfortable and well-kept home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous vacation in a comfortable well-appointed home with an excellent location. The owner was extremely responsive, attending to our every need, including quick attention to minor repairs as soon as I let her know of them. I highly recommend her home.

A great stay in Palm Valley

  • 5 of 5

Hi Marlene, My stay with my 20 year old son, during his university break, at your wonderful condo was super. Your condo is very close and convenient to the fitness and tennis courts. My son and I used the facilities ever day (love that steam room). Palm valley CC area is very safe and quiet. The condo is very roomy and has plenty of amenities within the condo to make you feel right at home. We again had a great time loved everything about it and will be looking forward to staying in the future. Marlene you were very accommodating and attentive leading up and during our stay, thank you again for making our stay terrific. Cheers.

Owner's Response: Hi Grant, The pleasure was all mine. I'm so glad to hear that you and your son had a great time in my condo. We try to furnish it with the highest quality appliances and furnishings possible because you and our guest deserve only the best! We also love our condos close proximity to the Clubhouse. Looking forward to seeing you next year for an even longer stay. Best wishes, Marlene

Hi Marlene,

My stay at your beautiful condo was cut much to short and I had to return back to Canada on business matters.

Had a great time loved everything about it. Thanks again.

Comfortable and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property for a quiet, comfortable, well located getaway to Palm Desert. This condo was very accurately described as a spacious and well appointed unit. The new king sized bed (smaller bedroom) was very comfortable!!

The location in this large complex was excellently situated near the Clubhouse, which has a big pool with swimming lanes.

There're also numerous small pools around the complex (which I preferred) that were quiet and well maintained. I was impressed with the maintenance of the complex and this unit.

I liked that each condo is a separate unit, without shared walls. This unit has it's own BBQ and an actual garage for keeping the car cool in the summer heat!!

It's definitely quiet here, don't go looking for a "party scene".

Marlene, the owner, was extremely helpful and accessible for my questions.

I would stay here again and recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable, quiet, spacious and well maintained condo.
