Enjoy some of the many world class events like the Humana Challenge (previously the Bob Hope Classic). Less than 5 minutes away is the home of the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Classic at Indian Wells Top Rated Tennis Stadium. This home is located within 5 minutes of the Polo Grounds where you can enjoy top ranked polo matches and a tailgate picnic.
The home is within walking distance of Old Town La Quinta and is situated near major shopping districts, spectacular golf, tennis gardens, polo grounds, restaurants, and outdoor activities. La Quinta has many Zagat Rated restaurants and bars, with live music. You are never far away from the myriad of other choices offered along El Paseo, (the Rodeo Drive of Palm Desert), shopping, restaurants and works of art.
We just returned from our best trip ever to Palm Desert (we've been going for 5 years with another couple). This rental will not disappoint. The location is close to La Quinta Village where there are wonderful shops and restaurants. It is beautiful, comfortable, and has everything you could possibly want or need. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of glasses, plates, and cookware. A wonderful pool and spa all with remote control. A yard where we could pick oranges and grapefruit for breakfast. There's a ping-pong table (I'm the champ), bikes, and pool toys. It's nicely furnished where we were proud to have company for dinner and drinks by the pool. And the owner is wonderful to work with.
At the risk of making this desert paradise too popular, I feel obligated to post this review.
We were looking for a 1 week getaway with friends to escape the cold back home. We discovered this gem and had an awesome time. The home is located in a real nice quiet neighbourhood, yet not far from restaurants and other amenities. While the weather we hot, we used the pool and hot tub every day. So nice to sit in under the stars or watch the hummingbirds flutter around at sunrise. We probably didn't need to heat it, but it was nice to have after a long day of walking or hiking.
Picking fresh fruit for breakfast off the trees in the backyard was a treat!
The home is beautifully furnished and equipped, with TVs in all rooms, including the massive 70" tv with DirectTv in the family room. WIFI and long distance made staying in touch with the civilized word handy ... but optional. We didn't spend much time inside, but when we did, we felt right at home.
We're already looking forward to being able to come back!
We're a family of 5 (daughters aged 7-11) and the house was perfect for us --- on a quiet street, in a nice neighbourhood, walking distance to a park and a starbucks and a short drive to golf and everywhere else you want to be in the greater Palm Springs area.
We stayed the last week of Dec 2014 -- a sunny but cool week. The pool and hot tub are in a private backyard and were nicely heated; we used them a lot. The house has comfortable furniture and beds, TVs in most rooms, a well equipped kitchen and easy to use thermostat. As a bonus, the house comes with lots of extra "necessities" (toilet paper, paper towel, soap, etc...?) --- a nice touch you don't get most places.
The property owner was pleasant to deal with right from initial inquiry through to check-out (she even took some time on New Year's Eve to arrange Direct TV PPV movie access for us --- a really kind thing to do).
We recommend this property.
We just returned from a week stay at this beautiful home. I am a fan of VRBO and did a ton of research before selecting this property. Boy did I make a good decision. My husband and children were thrilled. If pictures say a thousand words then realty doubles that. Everything was top notch. The neighborhood was quiet, the home has everything you need and the amenities surpassed our expectations. The home is so lovely that we hardly ventured out. Spending time around the pool and enjoying family time together was priceless. I would recommend this property! Thanks Gail for a memorable week and sharing your home.
We all have hectic schedules and gathered for a week to celebrate a shared birthday. I knew it was a perfect match when there were filters and coffee in the pantry. The house had the perfect amount of space to gather around the huge tv for a movie or have time away from each other. We spent the majority of time around the pool and hot tub. The shade under the pergola was great so that we could be choose how much sun we wanted at a time. It was very hot compared to the start of our Canadian winter. The house was beautifully clean and well stocked. There was a blender for morning smoothies and a wine fridge. Steak on the grill. Pool things. There were platters etc for some entertaining of other family in the area. Foliage for privacy, complete with humming birds. Lovely bedding. No comment on other palm springs attractions. We just really enjoyed each others company and the heat in beautiful, private luxury. No complaints.
This is an amazing property. My wife, 4 year old daughter and I vacationed here for a week this summer. The open and spacious home is very well appointed with all the creature comforts we enjoy in our own home--even sleep number beds. And the fully stocked kitchen has all the hardware you'll need to prepare just about anything. But the best part for us...the pool! We literally spent every day in and around the pool. It is a good size for the whole family and there are plenty of floaty things for the kids. Another huge plus with this property is the owner, Gail. Once you decide to book this home she will be your point of contact. She is a great communicator and she's very attentive to your e-mails and phone calls. I'm telling you, if you are looking for a comfortable desert retreat, you can't go wrong with this place. Book it today and enjoy!
