Our home is GREEN! The property has desert landscaping with water efficient bubblers to conserve water. Inside and outside, we use energy efficient lighting. Our appliances are also energy efficient and our washer and dryer play a big role in conserving energy. The washer uses minimal amounts of water and the gas powered dryer minimizes the electricity used. Our home is equipped with a water softener and we use special, all-natural soaps and detergents throughout the house, from the bathrooms to the kitchen to the laundry. These concentrated soaps are made to work well with the soft water and minimize the impact to the environment. Our pool is filled with salt water to minimize the amount of chemicals required (better for the environment) and we had an energy efficient pool pump installed to reduce electricity consumption. The pool can be heated for an additional cost; please contact us for more information.
Gorgeous mountain views surround Casa Calliandra, our home in La Quinta Cove. Located near the top of the 'Cove' and only one block from the hiking trails around the perimeter, Casa Calliandra is the perfect getaway for those who seek the sunshine, peace and tranquility of the southern California desert. The only sounds you will hear during the day are birds chirping and doves cooing. Hummingbirds are quite numerous and are attracted to some of the beautiful flowers in our desert landscaped yard. Relax near our private pool and read a good book or go hiking or biking on the numerous nearby trails. Nights in the desert are magical with a beautiful, clear view of the Milky Way Galaxy unhindered by city lights.
Come and see how the deep blue skies mix with the earthy browns of the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains and the vibrant greens of palm trees and desert plants!! The natural beauty of this area will captivate you and bring you back time and time again.

About Kristin Hermann
Kristin and Chris have a passion and love for the La Quinta area, and Chris is an avid golfer. We are Coachella Valley locals and enjoy the lovely outdoor environs with our fun-loving dog Olive; we do love the climate and beauty of the La Quinta Cove.
Kristin Hermann purchased this House in 2009
Why Kristin Hermann chose La Quinta Cove
We fell in love with La Quinta and the 'Cove' the first time we saw it. The gorgeous Santa Rosa Mountains, beautiful Coral Ridge, the close proximity to over 100 golf courses, the easy two hour drive from the beach, Los Angeles, and the local ski areas -- La Quinta is a great location to call home. Ultimately, this will be our retirement home here, and our plan is to rent it out as a vacation home for a few years in the interim.
What makes this House unique
Sun, sun and more sun! Golf, golf and more golf! An amazing getaway somewhere where the sun shines almost year round.

Extremely happy with the property!
This was the perfect find for our group of 6 during our Coachella weekend! Very spacious and extremely clean! The outdoor pool/ jacuzzi area was such a plus, we all loved spending a few hours out there before heading off to the festival! The home owner was extremely nice and helpful, overall great experiences and memories at Casa Calliandra!
Thank you! We enjoyed having you, and we hope to be your "home away from home" in the desert. 😀�
Awesome property, gracious hosts, great location.
We had a great week long stay as Casa Calliandra. Kristin was extremely helpful and accommodating for our family of 5 - including a baby! We had everything we needed to make ourselves at home and enjoy mornings by the pool and evenings outside. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and will recommend it to any friends coming to the Palm Springs area.
House was comfortable and met all our needs!
My girlfriends and I enjoyed our Stagecoach weekend away at Kristin’s place. Great close location to catch the shuttle to the event. Had plenty of space, super comfortable beds in fact we didn’t want to get up in the mornings and all the supplies we needed. Would definitely come back next year!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Great house, location, gorgeous views, very comfortable bed!
Thanks, April! I hope we will see you again.
Very nice home equipped with everything we needed. The location Is ideal.
We relaxed and enjoyed hikes, walks golfing and eating. The surrounding mountains are beautiful. The home is comfortable with nice outside areas.
We enjoyed having you stay at Casa Calliandra! We hope you will come visit us again. :-)
La Quinta has something for everyone! There’s golfing at the City’s spectacular public course, SilverRock Resort; dining and shopping in the quaint Village area or along the Highway 111 commercial corridor; biking along the Bear Creek Trail; and hiking in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto mountains, just to name a few. No matter your pleasure, you’re sure to find plenty of reasons to come and enjoy the “Gem of the Desert—La Quinta!” La Quinta enjoys a healthy tourism industry, especially during the cooler winter months when the 'snowbird' tourists arrive. The most prominent industry is golfing with more than twenty golf courses, including the world-famous PGA West and SilverRock Resort which have both hosted many prestigious PGA tournaments like the Career Builder Challenge.
