About Ed Gestine

Photo to be inserted later.

Ed Gestine purchased this condo in 2006

Why Ed Gestine chose California Desert

We love Palm Valley since it is one of the few private, gated community clubs with year-round activity.

With over 1200 condos, the clubhouse, with its shops, a salon, a spa, 2 restaurants and a lounge are open year round with activity, unlike other clubs that close during the 'off' season.

What makes this condo unique

We have the closest unit to the clubhouse. Our end unit in a private cul de sac is less than 100 yards to the clubhouse shops and restaurants.

We enjoy walking over to Friday's Pasta Night, a Coachella Valley tradition, Sunday Brunch, the lounge, spa and Olympic size pool.

The amenities are unparalleled with a semi-private pool and spa just outside the door. After an enjoyable day outdoors, we love to relax watching HD on the 50' Plasma and retire with the 48' Plasma in the master bedroom and 42" widescreens in the second BR and den.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is wonderful. Your neighbor's are all so very friendly and warm. Beautiful sunsets and views of the course. I have joked with Laura, that we should not have stayed in a place this beautiful. It will make moving back home for us more difficult.

Awesome time with my family.

  • 5 of 5

We went for the Desert Trip concert of a life time and it didn't disappoint. Our choice of accommodations was perfect. The area is beautiful, the condo was the same as advertised. We were a family of 5 with our 2 daughters and one son in law so everyone had their own bedroom and bathrooms.The pool was right outside our door and no one but ourselves ever seemed to be swimming. I would certainly rent this again if I am ever in Palm Desert again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 6th time renting at Palm Valley, this unit for the first time and it is

def. our favourite, for one the location, could just walk over 5 min. to our tennis game in the morning or swimming which is handy if one of us needed the car to go somewhere else. Liked the layout of the condo and really appreciated the brand new updates like a brand new BBQ and newly tiled shower units, also communicating with the owners was easy and meeting them in person was a bonus! We suggested a Dustbuster we bought and got refunded no problem!

Also enjoyed the view from the Northern facing patio watching the golfers tee off in the morning. Also we enjoyed discovering the area with our bikes and discovered right next to Cook Street at the Desert Willow a very nice restaurant setting for lunch. We normally like to stay 2 months, enough time to discover new hikes, bike routes, etc.....The unit has top location within Palm Valley.......and would therefore recommend it to friends......

Palm Valley CC rental

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue, and for that I apologize. Our family has been renting this same condo from Ed for over 8+ yrs. We have enjoyed a GREAT relationship, both he and his wife are extremely responsive, courteous, and eager to please. The condo feels like our "second home", it is very comfortable and spacious. The location is very private, right next to the pool. This was important for my parents, and now, they would never consider any other location. The owners upgrade yearly, it's always fun to see whats "new". The back patio has spectacular views, perfect for our evening cocktails! The year round neighbors couldn't be nicer. Our family can't imagine staying any other place in the desert.

Great Place--Already signed up for next year!

  • 5 of 5

Rented for three months this winter and are really enjoying it. Ed is a great host/owner and very responsive to questions or concerns. When we asked him to arrange a rental DVR for us (we're golf junkies) he instead bought one for the property. The end unit condo is in a great location, very quiet and immaculate. We're enjoying entertaining our friends here. The office in the 3d bedroom is perfect for our use, and the Murphy bed will be convenient when we have the grandkids down for spring break. Our 5th year of winter renting, and this is by far the best place we have found!

Desert Springs accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This unit is to die for. Upgrades galore and spacious beyond expectations. Owner has taken pride in this unit and it was well worth the fee. This unit is perfect for two or three couples or a large family. The pool next to the unit feels like it is your own and private. Backyard is a focal point for entertaining or just watch the golfers go by. It is hard to believe that there would be a better unit and location than this one.

Great condo -- We're repeat visitors and will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The Gestine's condos are great (they have a fabulous one bedroom on Begonia where I stay when I come alone.) This unit is modern, super clean, faces the mountains and my teenagers love that the pool and hottub are just a few feet out the door. I like that it's near the club if I want to go pick up lunch. Although, we love the BBQ and they ALWAYS have condiments (spices, oils, sugar, coffee, tea) and such in their condos which makes a huge difference. My family has a condo in PVCC and trust me, this is the best location in PVCC. For golf, head over to Desert Willows (public course) and enjoy a great meal. For basketball and tennis, the park nearby on Country Club is fabulous.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We travel a lot, and know what makes a positive stay for us, so we strive to provide a great experience to all of our guests. We have had many people agree with you that this is the best location in the 1200+ unit gated, country club. We snapped it up when it became available a few years ago, and sold another one in the club just to make the jump to this unit. Some day we hope to retire there. The one bedroom unit that you have also stayed at (http://www.vrbo.com/434985) also has a great location near the clubhouse, but of course, can only accommodate two guests. We use the same cleaning people and same care philosophies for both units to have some consistency in our rentals. I'm glad you like both units. We hope to see you gain. Thanks again. Ed
