About Gerald Couch

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 16 years.

Gerald Couch purchased this house in 2008

Why Gerald Couch chose La Quinta

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Honestly it was luxurious and so nice! Delicious lemons picked right from the tree!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I rented this house quite readily after seeing the beautiful pictures here online, location of it and amenities. The price to rent is SO good and the mountain views are absolutely incredible from the back patio and yards with no obstructions at all! The street was very quiet, also, which meant no worries and good sleep. We wish we could have been here at this house longer, but our schedules did not permit it with involvement with the horse circuit. Thank you for being such nice owners and property carers!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your nice review of our vacation house! We certainly hope you can come back and stay longer, also, especially during the famous Thermal/Indio horse circuit in January through March each year. When there are few really nice places to stay, in La Quinta Cove, a person needs to plan way ahead for accommodations during January through April particularly! With 360 days of sunshine each year here, getting a good amount of Vitamin D daily is not a problem. Sincerely, Owners of the La Quinta Cove Amazing Mountain View home

Our group loved it!!

  • 5 of 5
Although we stayed only four nights, the beautiful house was very much to our liking! First of all, the location is absolutely superior and on a very quiet residental street. Then, the covered patio right off the kitchen/dining area, was something we really enjoyed with the spectacular mountain views and ample room at the patio table with 8 chairs. The outdoor BBQ grill was just great as well as the kitchen oven and broiler and all appliances, dishes, etc. The dining room table is very high end as well as the chrome frame and chairs! All the beds were comfortable with nice linens and pillows. Both bathrooms were supplied with several full size, specialty shampoos, body wash, and more! We liked the various indoor and outdoor games, such as croquet, that were supplied with this vacation rental, also. The large living room TV, with the sound bar, was excellent! This house was well worth our expense and we all felt satisfied with the location and amenities. This is a special home not to be missed if you can book it!

Happy Canadian Winter Break and Visit to the Cove sun and fun

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came to visit friends, who own a house in La Quinta Cove, but we wanted a place of our own for the time we were staying away from the terrible Canadian winters. It was the perfect choice for us to rent this wonderful, top notch location home! The skies were so beautiful at night and we enjoyed the stars which could easily be seen above and near the very close mountains. I have never stayed anywhere I felt more at home and at peace than here! We enjoyed being able to pick some lemons fresh from the tree in the back yard on a daily basis and they are nice and sweet. The yards, shrubs and many flowering plants are so wonderful to view here versus plain cement or gravel and hardly any landscaping like most desert rentals. Of course, the mountain directly behind the property provides some shade, as well as the covered patio, and perfect views of nature! Hope we can return to this house again in 2015. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Your glowing review is very much appreciated and we hope that you will be able to come to our special La Quinta Cove vacation house again in 2015, also! Typically January through April are the busiest times of year in our valley and area, as you may be aware, and I've learned that (more often than not) house vacation rental rates are steadily increasing in our area. As a matter of fact, you may want to book very soon for your time away from Canada in 2015! Looking forward to seeing you again, Owners of the Amazing Mountain View house in La Quinta Cove

Valentine's Day Surprise :)

Valentine's Day Surprise :)
  • 5 of 5
My husband surprised me with a trip away from rainy Seattle and a two week stay at this lovely vacation house in La Quinta Cove. Three years ago, we rented another house in the Cove; however, it was not in a very good location nor could it begin to compare with this one and the marvelous view! The house architecture is gorgeous and the decorating is great! We enjoyed everything about it as well as the very quiet location! We would rather keep this "gem" a secret!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback on our La Quinta Cove superior property! Location is a huge part of consideration for buying or renting a house and you pay accordingly. Just added a new Bissell non-electric sweeper to make any household floor cleaning easier, in the spirit of being ecofriendly. Be sure to BOOK early for your next visit or the property may not be available. Owners of the Amazing Mountain View house in La Quinta Cove :)

Sunny skies, relaxation and more!

  • 5 of 5
After my wife had a mastectomy, due to breast cancer and had finished her chemotherapy, we decided part of her recovery would be spent away on a trip to where there is no winter. Our plan was to stay close to where former Hollywood movie stars came for respite and seclusion near the famous La Quinta Hotel. This house is within a mile of the hotel and close enough to Old Town and convenience. The beauty of the yards, flowers, shrubbery and gorgeous mountain views helped my wife's recovery. The bluish roses at the property are quite fragrant! Leaving cold winter weather for sunny skies daily helped our outlook on life.
the house is very clean and beautiful! We won't hesitate to rent this property again whenever we can return to California!

Owner's Response: We were glad that you were able to stay at the vacation house, which is quite close to the La Quinta Hotel, as you mentioned. We have added some updates since you stayed, such as a magnetic 16" dart board for fun play, as well as some new decorative pillows. We plan to put an I-Trax at the house for people who want to connect their tablet or cellphone to it for great music sound speakers while they are staying at the house. New bamboo cutting boards, a set of three, have been ordered for the kitchen, also. We do hope that you will consider returning to our vacation house sometime in 2015!

Truly serene and special overall

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to respond after staying at the LQ Cove vacation house this past fall.

I'm sure your review will be helpful to some possible future tenants who are as yet undecided. Please feel free to contact us next time when you expect to stay in Coachella Valley!

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.
