High Rise Living
Rancho Mirage, California
Built in the early 1970s, the world-class
resort of Desert Island is at the intersection
of Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope in the heart
of Rancho Mirage. Situated on 160 acres of
prime real estate, it consists of three
separate high-rise condominium buildings
with a total of 226 units, surrounded by a
25-acre lake. Two buildings have seven
stories, and the third has five. Resale units
at Desert Island measure between 1,500
and 4,000 square feet, and range in price
from as low as $450,000 to upwards of two
million dollars for the penthouse units.
The Golf Course
The private 18-hole golf course designed by
Desmond Muirhead is laid out along the
perimeter of Desert Island. This
immaculately maintained and mature
of traditional design features well-bunkered
rolling fairways along a meandering lake.
The lake provides water hazards for golfers
and gorgeous views for residents.
Amenities at Desert Island Country Club and
Condominium Community include two
lighted tennis courts, a yacht club and
fishing. There is an annual regatta and BBQ
at the yacht club, featuring pedal boat races.
Each building has its own pool and spa. A
39,000 square foot club house, which was
recently remodeled, is home to the private
golf and country club
