Wonderful Awesome Stay in Santa Rosa Cove

Stayed: March 2012
My wife and I spent 6 wonderful days at Santa Rosa Cove during the BNP Paribas Open. The owner was absolutely great to work with. A few days before we were to arrive, he sent us email with directions to his house and how to get in through the main gate (etcetera). We didn't encounter a single problem.
The condo is just a few minutes walk over to the main LQ Resort. After morning tennis clinics, we ate breakfast every day at the resort (at Restaurant 26). It's a nice 5-10 walk between the condo and the main tennis office.
The unit is stocked with various necessities (trash bags, laundry soap, towels for the pool), well-furnished kitchen (nice knives), great electronics (we played Pandora on our iPhone over their BOSE system), updated decor, and so on.
We were genuinely sad to leave. The night before we left, we had Happy Hour with a bunch of friends from San Jose (from our tennis club). The condo was very spacious, easily adaptable to 20+ guests.
At various times during the week, my brother-in-law and friend showed up, along with other visitors who stayed a night or 2, and I never felt overcrowded. The night we threw our Happy Hour, the staff at the front gate were easy to work with in letting guests in.
There was absolutely no "bait-and-switch" with the property--everything promised was there, and more!
In the area, we recommend eating at Armando's in Palm Desert and Restaurant 26 in LQ. Oh yes, we ate absolutely wonderful steak at LG's. We also recommend The Cliff House in LQ for Happy Hour (if you can get in).
Finally, if you're a tennis player, the tennis staff is second to none. We arranged for my brother-in-law to hit with Tom Gorman for an hour. It was the highlight of his trip. My wife and I went to daily clinics with the other staff -- Jim, Ian, Leif, Malcolm, and Tall Jim. If you go to the Tennis Shop, say hello to Cindy. She's the one who actually runs the place!
We definitely recommend this property. In fact, we look forward to staying there next year!
