Palm Desert is a jewel in the heart of the Coachella Valley snuggled between Rancho Mirage and Indian Wells. Michele and I are fortunate to own a designer furnished two bedroom, two bath condominium (1300 plus square feet) on a fairway within the lush private enclave of Monterey Country Club. This gated and secure oasis is located only a few minutes by car from the fashionable 'El Paseo' with its several superb restaurants and a 10 minute drive from 'The River,' Rancho Mirage’s new and exciting shopping environment that the whole Valley is talking about. Restaurants, movies, live entertainment, there is much to do in Palm Desert. The Valley offers a unique Vacation Experience.
A Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) wireless modem/router will keep you connected to let the world in, but do you really want to? If you choose to there are no complications - your laptop will pick up the signal immediately. We have also added an LG 37' LCD HDTV (with a Sony DVD) to the living room as well as a JVC High-grade DVD-Audio compact system with Wood Cone Speakers. Full HBO + Showtime and Roku also installed for streaming other channels. If you enjoy music, pack your cds, dvds and SACDs. Incidentally, it also can accommodate an MP3 hookup as well so it is iTunes friendly.
The entry path through our private gated courtyard welcomes you with its tiled desert colors bordered by Malibu lighting. Our patio borders on the fairway and offers the perfect setting for breakfast, reading or perhaps an early evening bar-b-que. Also, enjoy the clear view of Mount San Jacinto down the fairway. Our very bright and cheerful living room with soaring cathedral ceilings, a glass enclosed fireplace and a wet bar opens into our dining area where the large glass dining table easily seats six. The master bedroom is located in the back of the unit and is shielded from the morning sun. It is quiet, and great for sleeping. The centerpiece: a king-size pillow top mattress that affords the most comfortable sleeping environment that Michele and I have ever experienced. We loved the mattress so much that we spent $3,000 duplicating the experience for our San Diego home. Plus, a flat screen LCD. The second bedroom is comfortable and contains twin beds for the kids or guests. Incidentally, all beds have goose-downs pillows for greater sleeping comfort guaranteeing a vacation free from the neck pains of cheaper pillows, as well as goose-down duvet covers for each. Bathing in our spacious master bath is an experience enhanced by the deep green tiled frameless shower and the recessed lighting - the water actually seems to feel cleaner. Silent, vaulted ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms assure a comfortable environment (we rarely use the air conditioning but you may wish to) and our condominium comes equipped with a Maytag washer and dryer. The full kitchen is complemented with more utensils and glassware than you’ll ever need plus a coffee maker, blender, etc. We have a GE fridge, range and above the range micro. You may actually enjoy washing dishes in our Bosch dishwasher – it actually whispers. Both the master bedroom and the dining area look out onto the atrium where evening lights turn on automatically.
That’s it, just pack your toothbrush and please leave cigars and cigarettes at home. Sorry, no pets.
