Take a walk through our home by placing this link in your browser, it is a great way to see our home. http://bit.ly/1NFtWer 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. Even some of the electronics in the house are Energy Star rated. 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.

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!

                                                                  My wife and I stayed two weeks in this wonderful home. Combined with the fact it has an open and welcoming floor plan we were impressed with the quality of everyday items, from the pans to the bedsheets. Kristen has gone to great lengths to make sure that the house is fully stocked with items that any renter will need immediately, whether it be coffee filters or soap. A huge plus is the location of the home just a short walk to desert nature trails which offer easy hiking after sunset with incredible views of the valley. This is a remarkable home that we would not hesitate to book again for our next getaway.

Kristin was so helpful when we had locked ourselves out. The surrounding views take the cake, so much so we are looking to move to the area! The gas grill was perfect for dinners during our trip. Check in and out was seamless, outside of our initial lockout. We spent two days shopping at nearby El Paseo which was great. We would certainly recommend this property!
