About Rick and Kathleen (Katie) Hawkes
Hi, we are Rick and Kathleen (Katie) Hawkes. We live and work in San Diego and have been coming to the desert since we were both children. We have been married for 34 years. We have two children, a daughter and a son. I sell Real Estate and my husband is a General Contractor. We built our home in Elfin Forest and live on a 3 acre farm complete with a pig and chickens and a garden that will take your breath away. We absolutely fell in love with La Quinta on our first visit. Owning this condo has been a dream come true. We so want your every need to be fulfilled at our home. Let us know if there is anything missing and I'll bet the next time you stay it will be there! Making our guests happy makes us happy!
Rick and Kathleen (Katie) Hawkes purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Rick and Kathleen (Katie) Hawkes chose La Quinta
First of all, Santa Rosa Cove is the only place I know where you can live at a resort. The first weekend we came we never drove anywhere. We walked to the resort for coffee and bagels or breakfast in the morning and enjoyed one of the fabulous restaurants at night. We took walks, rode bikes, hit balls on the resort putting green, played in one of the many pools and enjoyed the live music at the resort in the evening.
What makes this Condo unique
We looked at many condos before choosing this one. The location and the peace and quiet were what sold us. Literally steps to the main waterfall fountain area allows us to walk out our door and watch a beautiful wedding unfold. We also loved the healthy fruit trees and climbing bougainvillea welcoming you in to the front patio. I love the high ceilings in the living and dining rooms. I added Sola tubes in the kitchen, dining and family room as well as the hallway and master bath. I recently added solar night lights inside the Sola tubes so the house is never dark accept the bedrooms at night when you pull down your blackout shades. The separation of bedrooms is wonderful. One of my favorite things is the door in the kitchen that opens to the front patio. Not many of these condos have this feature. I also like this location because it's just steps to the nearest pool. I wanted to be close to the pool but not hear the noise from the pool area. We chose this condo because it is set back from both neighbors and we view the fabulous mountains and a greenbelt instead of a walkway, which gives lots of privacy. Our views do not include any streets.

La Quinta Condo
This condo is great!! Everything about it was perfect for our family weekend vacation to La Quinta! Super clean, comfy, and beautiful...... really could not ask for anything more! We will stay here again for sure!!
We stayed here for Stagecoach. We were welcomed with a variety of treats in the refrigerator for snacking, waters, ice drinks, orange juice, muffins and eggs. It was the perfect space for our party of four. The beds were very comfortable. The condo was clean. The owner went above and beyond to make sure everything went well. The owner was available for all questions. We loved our stay here.
Thank you for your excellent review! We appreciate you taking the time. Hope to see you again!

Great place and great location
We typically stay at one of the local resorts but switched it up. Will likely book this place every time we come back. Every amenity you can think of (ground coffee, various coffee machines, bikes, breakfast items, chilled water and a few cold beer for our arrival, pool floaties, etc) and the unit is very well taken care of and spotless! Located right by a very quiet pool with hot tub. The gated community is very quiet and well taken care of. Literally a 5 minute walk to the La Quinta Resort and a short walk to restaurants in Old Town La Quinta. Kathleen was very responsive to inquiries. Highly recommend, as long as its not on a weekend we plan on coming back!
Thank you so much for your glowing review! Always striving to make our guest’s stay memorable. We just love our location because of its access to the resort and our pools and tennis court. So happy you enjoyed your stay!!
Absolutely perfect place!
I don't know where to even start with how wonderful this place was! Kathleen was great to work with, so helpful and easy to get a hold of by phone, text or email. The place itself was immaculate and incredibly well stocked with everything you might need - it was like you were staying in your own home. Need a bandaid? It was there. Need a hat for the sun? Yup, it was there. When we arrived the fridge had a selection of food so we didn't need to run to the grocery store immediately. Beds were very comfortable, the towels were plush. I could gush on and on about how great this place was. We stayed for the Coachella festival and rode our bikes to the grounds. This was the best idea ever - the bikes were awesome and the ride was a flat and easy 3 miles. You will not be disappointed in renting this place - if we ever come back we will be sure to book here again.
Thank you so much for the great review. So glad you were able to ride our bikes to the festival! The bikes are one of my favorite things. So many close places to ride to, restaurants , movie theatre, shopping etc. We look forward to having you back.
Our Best, Kathleen and Rick🍀�
This was by far and above the BEST VRBO homes in which we have stayed. The condo was clean and welcoming. The food( eggs, juice, water, crackers, condiments, butter,granola bars, waffle mix, etc..) in the fridge and pantry was an added bonus as were the two bottles of wine. The location - right next to the La Quinta resort, is perfect!! The mountain views are breath taking from the patio. Katie and Rich have completely decked out this condo and have spared no amenity. We used the 4 bikes for leisurely rides around the neighborhood as well as jaunts in to La Quinta Village( 1 mile away).
Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom were quite spacious and well adorned. They are at different ends of the unit which allowed everybody a bit of privacy( we were traveling with our son and his fiance). The mattresses and sheets were high quality and we slept very well in the beds. There was ample space for clothes in the closets and large dressers - also MANY hangers. :) Katie checked in with us via phone on the day that we arrived as well as the night before we departed. She and Rich were very accessible if there was ever a need but... there was nothing that hadn't already thought of. :). We had a wonderful time and plan on returning!!!.Many thanks, Katie and Rick!
Thank you Mary for the over the top 5 Star Review! So glad you were able to use the bikes. It is one if our favorite things to do in La Quinta.
It is our pleasure to pamper our guests. It brings us great joy ! Thank you for noticing the special touches! We look forward to your return visit!’
Cheers! Kathleen & Rick🍀�
