Mariott's Shadow Ridge Time Share entrance is beautifully landscaped as it the whole resort here at Palm Desert/Desert Springs area. Have you considered a time share? There are multiple ways to vacation in one. First of course is to purchase a time share. Marriott's original system was to purchase a week, their current system is to purchase destination points which you then use to reserve your lodging. Sometimes you can reserve accomodations using your Marriott Rewards Points, while other times you can rent the accommodations either directly from Marriott or from an individual owner.
We enjoyed this beautiful morning sky from our balcony in Shadow Ridge Villages last fall. It was cool in the early morning and later in the day. But, beautiful the bulk of the day.
A view of the mountains, with the sun coming up again from the balcony. The sun was nice and warm in the morning. Great place to sip your coffee and enjoy the view.
Palm Trees, Mountains, and a beautiful golf course surround the whole resort.
As you walk about the resort the views are everywhere. Ponds in the golf course, mountains in the background....breath taking.
The villas are spacious, nicely decorated and very well maintained. The villas offer a full 2 bedroom arrangement, or can be divided into a full 1 bedroom condo with kitchen and living room, and or a 1 bedroom quest facility with bed, sleeper sofa, bathroom, and small kitchenette. The kitchenette has microwave, small fridge, table and chairs for 2. Here's a view of the master bedroom (which is what you get with the full 1 bedroom arrangement as well as the whole 2 bedroom villa.
All units vary a bit by location in terms of colors and floor plan. Here we had a fireplace in the living room. The door to the left of the fireplace goes out to the large balcony. A beautiful accommodation that can sleep up to 8 using the living room sleeper sofa, as well as the sleeper sofa on the quest side.
I've been to Palm Desert/Desert Springs in both the fall and the spring and both seasons are very nice.
