My husband and I live in Northern California with our two children.

We discovered our love for the desert years ago on a weekend getaway and kept coming back every year until we finally purchased our vacation home.

We're huge tennis fans and enjoy all the recreational activities and scenery the desert has to offer.Years from now, we hope to spend more time in the desert upon retirement.

Peter McPherson purchased this house in 2000

We chose La Quinta for our vacation home because of its perfect resort location. Our gated community is conveniently located to everything we could possibly need. Most daily destinations are within walking or biking distance. The neighbors and surrounding community are very friendly, quiet and pleasant.

The weather is phenomenal! Every day is a sunny day!

The activities we enjoy most staying at our vacation house are:

Dining outside on our back yard patio which perfectly frames an incredible South facing view of both the mountains and golf course.

Barbequing and Lounging on our very private pool deck.

Enjoying the fireworks display put on by the Polo fields both July 4th and New Years Eve!

Dining and Shopping at El Paseo Drive and Old Town La Quinta

Playing tennis at Indian Wells Tennis Garden (Public).

Creating great family memories that will last a lifetime!

The most unique benefit of our home is its Southern exposure, the homes interior is bright all day concluding with incredible sunsets!

Numerous tennis and golf tournaments, and music festivals.

Amazing perfectly framed views from every room! Very private, overlooking spectacular golf course. Comfortable, clean and well maintained with every amenity imaginable.
Convenient location nearby Old Town La Quinta with elegant restaurants: Hogs Breath Inn, Sage and Arnold Palmers. One month was not enough, we can't wait to return.This home exceeded our expectations.

The GOOD life!

  • 5 of 5
I went in with very little expectations and I came out in love. From the moment I stepped on the property I was happy. I am a very active individual in search of a very low key vacation. This was the perfect rental for me! The house itself was beautiful and had great couches, bedrooms and a nice big screen tv. There was a nice table in the backyard where we could have meals outside. Also, there were great lounge chairs and an awesome pool and jacuzzi. I spent two days straight just reading my book in lounge chairs. The weather was warm, and the lounge chairs were super comfortable! The house is on a golf course, but you have lots of privacy. Great stay, highly recommended!

We had a truly wonderful vacation here. Peter, the manager, was very welcoming and attentive. The accommodations are lovely. The views are breathtaking and greatly contributed to our experience. We walked to Old Town for dinner many evenings and enjoyed convenient markets and local amenities.
We look forward to returning and highly recommend this property.

We do not recommend renting this property

  • 1 of 5
Unfortunately, we did not have a positive experience with this property. When we arrived, we were informed there was a small flood in the master bath which left the bathroom and walk-in closet smelling of mold. Several other issues arose: 1. dead rabbit in a dirty pool (which we cleaned after being told that the pool cleaner wasn't keen on making a trip out to the house), 2. broken pool tiles, 3. patio misters were broken (despite being advertised, we even tried to repair them), 4. several outlets malfunctioning, 5. television in main room would not work (we were asked to call the cable company and wait for them to arrive), 6. lack of basic supplies (soap, toilet paper, paper towels, light bulbs). We dealt with these issues gracefully, reported the ones that we felt were important to the property manager, and tried to remedy the less important ones. The response received typically involved asking us to deal with the issue ourselves. The owners held our security deposit beyond the 21 day limit (despite what was stated in the signed contract) and I had to email the property manager several times to ask about the status of the refund. When it was returned, we were charged for additional utilities (after notification, the owners refunded the extra amount), dryer cleaning and stains to bath towels (which was justified), and for damage to a towel rack (sheet rock repair, labor). To this day, I insist that the damage was there when we arrived, but the owners and property manager would not budge or give us the benefit of the doubt. I felt that by being accommodating and more than graceful when dealing with the other issues (not to mention, using my vacation time to solve problems for their rental) that I would have earned the benefit of the doubt and the owners/property manager would trust me. Unfortunately, that did not happen and the owners refused, via the property manager, to refund that part of the security deposit (later, they told me that because I didn't take pictures of it, that it was my fault). We have never been treated like this before (after 25+ years of wonderful family trips renting homes in the Palm Springs area) and we certainly will NOT rent from these owners or property manager again.

Owner's Response: We are extremely disappointed to hear of this tenants unfortunate experience. We provide a full-time Property Manager to insure our guests have a pleasant and comfortable vacation. Our policy is to inform all incoming guests of any unforeseen circumstances and make every effort to remedy the situation prior to their arrival. Any reported damage or malfunctioning equipment is attended to immediately. Our housekeeping staff inspects, inventories and restocks upon every departure and fully prepares our home for the next guests. Our pool is attended to twice per week by a certified professional who is available on-call. For convenience, we provide a detailed instruction sheet for the operation of our TV and a file with all equipment/appliance manuals. The utility billing cycles determine when we calculate and return security deposits, we make every attempt for this to occur in a timely manner. We politely request that upon arrival our tenants inform us of any disappointment or discrepancies so that we may address them immediately.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed in the desert numerous times we found this luxury home to be the best value on the market.The location is premium. The floor plan creates great flow, each bedroom with attached bathroom creates nice privacy and the great room and outdoor kitchen/dining are wonderful for entertaining (astounding views/sunsets). Best surprise were the city's 4th of July fireworks right above the golf course!
We truly appreciated Peter, the home's property manager, he was incredibly helpful and made our stay very comfortable. Looking forward to staying longer next time.
