And there are tucked away spaces that are perfect for quiet time alone or curling up with a good book.
THE LIVING SPACES
The vaulted ceilings, walls of glass, open floor plan and two outdoor living areas make this home feel much larger than the 1,300 + square feet of interior space.The interior great room offers plenty of seating for your entire group, a flat screen television and spectacular fairway views. The interior dining area seats 6 comfortably and the remodeled kitchen has gleaming white counter tops, stainless steel appliances and direct access to an enclosed courtyard where you will find the gas barbecue and additional seating.
As lovely as is the interior of this home - the Fairway patio is its crowning glory. Dine alfresco under the retractable awning, enjoy evening cocktails around the fire feature and take full advantage of spectacular fairway views revealing the majestic mountains and the palm trees swaying in the breeze. This is paradise found!
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
Both master suites feature king-sized, hotel-quality mattresses, flat screen televisions, ensuite baths with dual sinks, ample storage and direct patio access. Both bedrooms have the look and feel of an upscale boutique hotel.

THE CENTRAL LOCATION

"Views of mountains are beautiful"
Drift Away Perfection
"This is a beautifully upgraded condo in Monterey CC with a spectacular view over the 6th west fairway toward the mountains. The unit contained everything you would need for a relaxing stay. Monterey CC in Palm Desert is a great location central to everything in the Coacella Valley and in particular close to shops and restaurants on El Paseo. Would have liked a garage door opener so we didn't have to get out of the car to open and close the door. The price seems a little high in comparison to other units of this size, but it is an A+ location in the CC and a beautiful contemporary feel unit. "
Drift Away vacation
"We very much enjoyed our short stay at Drift Away. The place was very clean, like new, well stocked and in a very convenient location. The only issue was the weather - so wet and cold! Next time we’ll book in March. "
The Perfect Place for a Get Away!!
"Drift Away is modern, attractive, spacious and SO comfortable! It is well furnished and well equipped. Enjoy your coffee or wine on the patio as you look at the beautiful San Jacinto mountains!! This was our second time staying at Drift Away and we just love it!! The staff at Acme House company get top marks for the excellent way they take care of you!!"
"The property is exactly as shown. Excellent updated space, amazing views and perfect location. This is our first time renting this condo and have committed for the month of March 2018...this could be a habit!"
Beautiful relaxing week!!
"This is very well taken care of it’s a beautiful relaxing place to just kick back and enjoy the beautiful view. If and when there are any problems someone is there immediately to take care of it. We enjoy it so much we are going back a second time this year"
This retreat was the perfect venue for our annual girls trip.
"Every touch was appreciated from the decor to the management company. We’ll be back!!!!"
Beautiful place to stay
"We have been here a few times. It’s a beautiful place to stay. Clean and relaxing. Though this time the water heater went out twice. Cold showers are not fun when you pay that kind of money or anytime for that matter. They did have someone come in and fix it the second time actually worked. The water heater is very old hopefully it will be replaced by a new one before our next stay. We will go back. We do love it there. They are pretty much on the ball when things do go wrong which is expected now and then. "

Everything That You Could Possibly Need.
"Drift Away was a wonderful home for two couples to spend a week in the desert. It was tastefully and comfortably remodeled. The kitchen was outfitted with everything and more that you could possibly need. Bedrooms and baths were lovely and comfortable. Wish it had been a bit warmer to sit outside in the evenings.The sectional couch was perfect for TV watching and conversation. The house is in a wonderful location for assessibility to shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed watching the golfers outside our patio in the mornings. We found the house immaculate upon arrival. Acme provided us with detailed instructions for arrival and departure as well as handy household instructions. Any interaction I had with staff at Acme office was excellent. It was a pleasure to stay at Drift Away and look forward to a return next year ."
We Could Move In!
"We so thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Drift Away. The owners did a superior job on the remodel. Everything was clean, neat and accessible. We felt we could move in and love it!!! One problem we fixed temporarily was the garage door laser beam needs adjusting/fixing. You guys (Acme) did a wonderful job..thank you. We will use your rental services every year!"
Modern Desert Digs
"We had a wonderful stay at your lovely condo. Everything worked out just fine. The weather in full cooperation; high 70s and low 80s. You did a super job on the interior, and our traveling friends enjoyed the stay as much as we did. Thanks again for opportunity to share your “digs”."
All the Right Moves
"Superb desert location; close to McCallum Theater, College of the Desert and El Paseo. Extraordinary Fairway and Mountain Views. World class Sunsets & Sunshine. Modern, Peaceful interior."
First class update!
"Loved the updated condo with beautiful views, and the wonderful location. We look forward to returning next March 2018 - this time for a month."
Drift away in the comfort and location of this property!
"We had a flawless experience with ACME House Co., and this was the perfect property! A 5 Star+ rating! We had wanted to stay at another property, but found the description of the Drift Away property irresistible. It turned out the condo was even better than described! The condition & location of the condo was excellent. We will absolutely be back for another stay at Drift Away!!! "
Manager Response: Thanks for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We are trying to convert all of the homes we manage to universal remotes - we are making progress but not totally there yet. There are detailed instructions in the house manual for all property operations including TV remote control. Next time you stay with us - please give us a call if you run into a problem like this. We can often walk you through these minor issues over the phone. If not, we'll send someone out to help.
"Acme House Co.'s communication was great. It was easy to book, easy to make changes to the rental, instructions about the house were wonderful, and access was easy. We chose this home because of the location and pictures of the home. The house was contemporary in design and decor, the kitchen was well stocked with all the things you need to cook with, lots of linens, and the towels were like new. The bed was comfortable. It was perfect! We had a bit of difficulty with the TV remote."
Manager Response: Thanks Jo Anne. You were the perfect guest. Don't forget to use your past guest discount when you come back to visit us again!
" I absolutely loved the condo. What I loved even more was Acme! From the moment we walked in the door and were welcomed with music playing-we felt at home! I had a question during our stay and it was answered immediately. The house had everything we needed (and we love to cook). In looking for houses to rent in the future, I won't even bother with VRBO our another vacation site. I trust Acme and will always use them."
Easy Process, Great Rental Choices!
Manager Response: Thank you Jo Anne. We enjoy taking care of our Chicago contingency and we are always pleased to get such positive feedback. Come back soon!
"I come to the Desert once or twice a year. I know I will never have to painstakingly search different sites for what we want and I will be able to go directly to Acme House Co. The house came fully equipped and there was nothing that you didn't think of to make our stay enjoyable. We have rented at least 10 times and never had such a great experience. Your rental had everything that we wanted, and I loved when we walked in the house for the first time that there was music playing. We had that welcoming feeling right away. The whole experience was great. "
A very good stay!
"Our rental experience was very good thanks to ACME House Co. being very organized! We were very pleased with the condition of the rental, all remodeled, and very nice. We really liked the location and the condition of the unit. Would recommend!"
