Overview

Photos and Description of this Palm Springs holiday condo

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The historical Racquet Club was the favorite “get away/ hangout” of the stars and celebrities to escape to the desert. Today the elegance and beauty of the living area and grounds are exquisitely restored and maintained by the Club Condos which consist of 51 privately owned luxuriously units. This complex was connected to the original Racquet Club where the guest stayed and played. If the walls could only talk.

Everything from ceiling to floor in this 1,362 sq. ft. two bedroom, two bath unit is new and has been completely renovated with its Fleetwood windows and doors- appliances including a $7,000 a Sub-Zero refrigerator- a Viking induction range, slab granite counter tops, Columbia custom cabinetry, Kohler fixtures, air conditioning, etc., etc……. The kitchen is truly a chef’s delight.

The living room, dinning room, kitchen and patios are separate but architecturally open. and pleasing with its unique furniture, furnishings, artwork and decorations. Included is a 55” wall mounted flat screen TV.

The master bedroom has its own bathroom with tub, a king size bed, wall mounted flat screen TV, a large mirrored closet with plenty of drawers for your personal belonging and clothes. The master bedroom opens on to the pool. No need to get dresses just open the sliding glass doors and jump into the pool.

The second bedroom is small but comfortable with two extra long beds with extra long quality mattresses. It also has its own private bathroom and shower.

The private patio is completely spacious with an outdoor dinning table that seats six. It has two matching chaise lounge chairs for sunning yourself next to the pool or talking afternoon naps. In addition there are three large Italian Knoll chairs for relaxing and looking up to the swaying palms. In addition there is a grill for cooking outdoors.

The new ultra tech pebble salt water pool and spa is something very special and private. In addition to the unit’s private pool there is a large community pool and spa for extended swimming and exercise which is no more than steps from the unit.

This unit is has its own private covered parking space conveniently located steps to the unit.

About Wayne Headrick

My wife and I who have been married for 46 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired seven years ago we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos, the units are extensively decorated with the works of many well know artists. Before that we lived and did business in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German who, of course speaks German and French.

We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.

Wayne Headrick purchased this condo in 2014

Why Wayne Headrick chose California Desert

For years we lived at the beach and bought a Palm Springs property to come on the weekends when it was foggy or cold at the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here 7 years ago.

What makes this condo unique

In our opinion the Club Condos is one of the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. First of all there are only 51 units in this gated compound with its magnificent grounds and large picturesque swimming pool and spa. In addition, this unit has its own private salt water pebble tech pool and spa which is completely private and protected by high walls.

Clean, private and awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect with our stay! We are looking forward to coming back! Since we live at the beach, where it's cold, I would love to come to Palm Springs where it's warm.

Absolutely enjoyed my stay. Comfortable, immaculate accommodations. The owners were available and responsive to any questions or needs I might have had. I could not have been more pleased with my stay. Would recommend it to any of my friends and I would return again. Lynne

Private, quiet, and deluxe

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite feature was the completely private pool. The condo is beautifully decorated with a kitchen much nicer than mine at home! Herta was a wonderful host and showed us all the features of the home inside and out. Perfect size for a couple - and we liked having a 2nd bathroom off the living area. We did not want to leave. Short drive to downtown Palm Springs. We are planning on making an annual trek to this same condo. Fantastic!

Very comfortable weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a very nice long weekend in Palm Springs at Wayne and Herta's condo. The space is compact but so comfortable, bright and open to the outdoors. The condo is exactly as pictured. The private saltwater pool and hot tub are marvelous. The weather was unusually cool for the end of April, so we opted at the last minute to pay to heat the private pool, which was totally worth it in our case. We have a 4 year old who spent every waking minute in the water, so it was really nice to have the luxury of being steps from the kitchen, bathroom, etc., and to have the additional shelter from the wind that was provided by the condo's walls. The community pool is extremely close to the condo and we also swam there -- it was perfect for the grown ups to get some laps in. Beautiful mountain views from private patio and community pool.

As others have mentioned, Herta is very nice and responsive to questions and requests, and the other residents in the condo complex were quite friendly. Not walking distance to downtown but less than a 5 minute drive. Dedicated parking space is very convenient to the condo, and the complex is very quiet. Also cool history related to the original Raquet Club, the first celebrity hangout in Palm Springs -- there is a coffee table book describing it in the condo. (One thing I learned is that although VRBO labels this unit as being in the "Raquet Club Garden Villas," that is actually a separate complex, built at a different time -- this condo is part of the "Raquet Club Condominiums.")

The only negatives we encountered were a dirty bathtub and dusty furniture in the master bedroom. I am assuming that since none of the other guests have commented on this that it was a fluke -- perhaps the cleaning crew was in a hurry this time. I mentioned it to Herta and would imagine she will ensure it will not happen again. It was a bit of a bummer to start the vacation having to scrub the tub out with Comet, but it was really the only hiccough and did not tarnish our experience overall. We would definitely return and recommend the place to others.
