My wife, our three young children and my Father-in-Law had a very enjoyable stay at this well equipped desert home. For starters, the owners Carmel and Sam are a class act. From the booking, throughout our stay and after our departure they were very friendly and attentive. Simply put, they treated us like house guests, not renters. This is a new home for them, so while the décor may not be model perfect just yet, it was very well equipped and comfortable. The pool is small but it was perfect for small kids to play in or for adults to cool off. The sound system that can be controlled in every room and the master bathroom was fantastic. We had our favorite music playing from the cable TV and pumped throughout the house every day. The flat screens in the family room and two bedrooms entertained all of us perfectly. The kitchen was well equipped with mostly new necessities. One third of the rear deck is covered by a portico that provided much needed shade to escape the desert heat while still sitting pool side. The property does back up to a popular neighborhood road, however the water feature in the pool easily drowned out any traffic noise. Lastly, the kids enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage. We would return for a future stay and would recommend this property to anyone who wants to be in La Quinta but does not want to pay the high cost of being right near the resort or PGA West.
