About the property

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 Palm Springs

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.

Perfect for small family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed it with our two young girls and small dog. It was kept up nicely and the owners are very helpful with any problems. The neighborhood was quiet and it was nice to be able to have our girls play in their pool in our private yard. Don't get me wrong, the community pool was very nice also! We will definitely consider it in the future when we come again. Thanks Wayne and Herta for your hospitality.

Did not disappoint!

Nicely appointed condo with wonderful indoor-outdoor living amenities. Conveniently located offering quick and easy drive to hot spot restaurants and shopping to the south, terrific air tram to the north and several neighborhoods with mid-century architectural gems. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and experience in Palm Springs.

Our stay at this condo was outstanding. Everything as advertised. Very quiet grounds. Well appointed condo unit with all you would want for. Very close to anywhere you would want to go in the area. Owner, Herta, is very pleasant and accommodating to work with. If back in the area we would not hesitate to rent this unit again.
