This 1 bedroom, 1 ½ bathroom condo is in the best location of all of downtown Palm Springs. Don't be fooled by other listings saying they are in or close to downtown. Look on the map. This condo is not a mile from the downtown, or a ‘pleasant walk’ to the downtown--it's in the downtown. The condo is a mere four properties north of a stop on the Palm Springs Trolley (the Buzz Trolley) which takes you to 30+ stops throughout all of Downtown Palm Springs FOR FREE from Thursday through Sunday, and on the bus line routes (the SunLine Transit buses) with stops both south and north of the condo in the downtown corridor and which takes you to the entire city, and locations in the surrounding cities with transfers. A 31 day unlimited bus pass is only $17 for seniors 60 and up. And if you prefer, you can walk easily to all of downtown Palm Springs, including about 50 restaurants and bars, as well as the Spa Resort Casino (0.7 miles) and the Palm Springs Convention Center (1 mile away). Additionally, just three short blocks from the condo is Ruth Hardy Park with tennis courts, basketball courts, 2 volleyball courts, plus ample picnic tables and parking. Further, four short blocks away is Wellness Park, a 5-acre wellness oasis with a quarter-mile walking/jogging loop, five exercise/fitness stations, and four gardens - meditation, healing, fragrance and a memorial garden.
The Movie Colony Condos is the only condo complex in the mile square of Palm Springs that forms the Movie Colony. The area took its name from the fact that the studios originally purchased this land and parceled it out to movie stars and the gliterati of the movie industry. Immediately behind the Movie Colony Condos are the homes of Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Harry Cohn, Liberace, Dinah Shore, Marilyn Monroe and Al Jolson, Bob Hope, Carmine Miranda, David O. Selznick and scores of other notables.
The condo is one story with no steps and no one above or below you. It is 765 square foot with two bathrooms on either side of a bathtub/shower room, so two people sharing the condo can each have their own bathroom. The condo has a laundry room, rather than community laundry, which is rare in centrally located Palm Springs’ condos. Additionally, there is both a front patio, and a very private back patio for sunning. The condo comes with one dedicated covered parking space. The Movie Colony Condos has a community pool (unheated) and a spa, at the front of the complex.
Inside the condo is a completely renovated kitchen opening to the living room and dining room. The living room has a 55 inch TV, and includes NetFlix, Hulu Plus and seven local channels (including ABC, CBS, NBC). The bedroom has a king size bed with a very comfortable mattress, and a built-in dresser in the bedroom closet, as well as a computer desk with a printer for your convenience.
In short, this condo is everything one or two people need for a relaxing vacation or escape from the cold weather.
The condo is available to one or two people, and is non-smoking. No pets. A 30 day minimum stay is required.+ More
