We first came to the Coachella Valley in 1984, from the Chicago suburbs and found it interesting back then, although there was absolutely nothing on Highway 111 from Indian Wells to Shield's Date Gardens on the corner of Jefferson and 111. We have been timeshare owners for over 30 years and are well acquainted with what you cannot get for your $$, such as more than 2 bedrooms or select locations! We have owned properties in four states and lived and rented or owned in five, which are all expensive areas. We have lived in La Quinta Cove for 15 years.

Gerald Couch purchased this house in 2008

The house is located on a very quiet, niche street with the mountain directly behind. The lawns are quite lovely as well as the various trees, flowers and plantings. Beautiful panoramic views of Santa Rosa's. Walking and hiking paths are extremely close. The immediate area is protected land. There is wildlife to view such as quail, doves, hawks, roadrunners, small geckos, little lizards, many hummingbirds due to abundance of aloe vera planted at the property. Idyllic, wonderful house and location! Feels like a small town only up in our Cove with plenty of convenience within 1-4 miles.

Very clean house, all new bedding and linens, glasses, dishes, cooking pots and pans, utensils and more. The faux painting inside the house and architecture is beautiful. The living room is quite spacious as well as the entry and halls. The entire house is fitted with plantation shutters. Brand new stove/oven with fifth oval burner for pancakes, etc. Newer washer and dryer. We take pride in this house inside and out. House has seldom been lived in, well cared for, and the owners only use ecofriendly cleaning products due to them being very allergic.

My wife and I are former New Yorkers and we now live close to Los Angeles. We have heard so much about the golfing and spectacular scenery, in La Quinta, that we wanted to go for a vacation. I am a semi-retired photographer and wanted new resources for photos. I must say that I certainly felt like we could touch the mountain behind the property. The pictures on VRBO are exactly like the house and location with the walking trails literally just around the corner! If we were younger, we would have tried hiking, also. During our stay, there was clean air and spectacular blue skies and we will miss it!

Our small group was here for a long Coachella Fest weekend. It was relaxing at this house and a wonderful respite. We especially enjoyed the special location and mountain views and quiet! The sunset is beautiful as well as the stars at night, also. The kitchen has everything you'd want for cooking and the covered patio and grill was great! The living room TV is enormous and all furniture comfortable. The bedrooms are welcoming. This house was a great find for us and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at our LQ Cove vacation house rental. Your review will certainly help others when they are looking for the perfect LQ house to stay at and choice location that is available with this listing! We hope that you will consider coming back in 2014, although the house is not available for Coachella Fest. Perhaps you will consider our May or June Special offer?

Nice comfortable and quiet

We have enjoyed staying there a few times and the house is quiet clean and comfortable. We have little ones so the separate bedrooms are a must for us. The street is really quiet and there is a nature trail and parks and shoping close-by. The Kitchen/laundry is nice with newer appliances, nice big-screen TV.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at our La Quinta property. I know you and your family enjoyed the very close walking trails, location and close proximity to good restaurants and fun times. As you know, we have made special effort to create a very nice home with amenities such as 600-800 thread count sheets for the MBR and second bedroom. Also, the newer furniture, appliances and kitchen supplies are very unexpected from our own experiences with any timeshares. Thank you again!

La Quinta Cove is the historical area, which has a vast acreage of conservation land to the west of our house, with walking and hiking trails. We are known as the Golf Capital of the World and the Gem of the desert! La Quinta is host to the La Quinta Arts Festival which is every March. We have many artists in our Cove community. Silver Rock golf course is on Avenue 52, within a mile or so, where the Skins Game is nationally televised each year. We have our own historical museum, located in Old Towne, as well as a post office and many shops. The area is very convenient overall and our location is select and away from lots of traffic and noise. The historic, famous La Quinta Hotel is within a mile of our house. The Indian Wells Tennis Garden matches are held every year off Highway 111 and Washington, approx. 4 miles to the north of our location, in the month of March. Every winter, from January to March, the Polo Tournaments are enjoyed locally. La Quinta has an abundance of local outdoor art to be seen especially between the Civic Center and the Library, on Calle Tampico. The Thermal airport is not very far away, which makes it convenient for those who want to fly in their own plane versus driving to the area. When traveling on Avenue 52, toward Indio, you can still see the ancient coral formations in the very local mountains. Shield's Date Gardens, in Indio, is not to be missed, as they have the original Moroccan date palms which bear every year! Knott's water park is in Palm Springs, as well as the famous Tramway, with interesting views all year long and a dining area up top at 8,500 ft. In Palm Springs, you may want to visit original Indian Canyons if time allows.
