We are Canadians living in the Vancouver, British Columbia area and have recently retired.

TERRY VAN DER LEEST purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why TERRY VAN DER LEEST chose Century Park

For many, many years we vacationed in the Palm Springs area and finally got the opportunity to purchase our own place about 8 years ago. We wanted it to be a true oasis for us so we hired a pool consultant and landscaper to turn our backyard into a resort-like setting which is truly the outstanding feature of our home.

Up there with the best

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we booked the house the service & help from Terry was fantastic, as a family we have travelled a lot all over the World, the house was up there with the best & was certainly the best stocked with everything (& more) we needed. The pool area was great & our Grandchildren loved it. If you are looking for a great rental around this area look no further. Michael & Family Derby UK England

Wonderful home absolutely charming.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I began my booking everything was excellent. The home was everything I had hoped for and exceeded my expectations. The home was close to everything and on quiet street. Yard and pool were great and home owners were just a quick call away to answer any questions I had concerning the home. Would highly recommend this property.

Just back from an incredibly warm week in Palm Springs, but our accommodations were perfect! Terry, you have out done yourself; the pictures don't do your home justice. Literally, the only thing you need to stay in this beautiful home is your clothes and food, everything else was provided. My family had been there less than 24hrs and were asking when we could plan another stay.

Thank you for making our visit a memorable one!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a few places for our Coachella Festival weekend in the past and the price would triple ( greedy price gougers!!) but not Terry's place . Terry's place had everything we needed and could want. There's nothing more frustrating then arriving to a rental only to find you were expected to bring absolutely everything with you, right down to the toilet tissue. Terry makes sure his guests dont have that disappointment upon arrival. The fully stocked kitchen had everything you'll need. Coffee maker, blender everything you just need to go to Ralph's and buy your groceries! I really did not find a single fault.

Friendly neighbors and a wonderful pool/hot tub, fire pit (was a use every night ) patio out back made our seven day stay absolutely wonderful. We will be back because Terry's place has been the best out of 7 years of renting.

Thank you Terry and staff.

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our mom's, birthday trip and 8 girls ranging from 18 - 80 stayed here for a week.

We wished we could stay longer.!

The home was nicer than the pictures ( if you can believe that)!

Every thing you needed was there.

The neighborhood was quiet and the back yard was something out of a magazine.

Terry was quick to respond to any inquires we had.

This was the first time to the Palm Springs area for all of us so we really appreciated the binder with all the local information in it.

We will definitely be back to this beautiful home away from home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and I can't tell you how pleased we are to hear that you enjoyed the house and your stay in the area. It is always very special when a family can come together to celebrate a milestone occasion like your Mom's 80th Birthday. We certainly look forward to welcoming you back in the future and if you have any suggestions on how we can improve things, please never hesitate to let us know. Thanks again and all the best to you and your family. Terry & Steve
