Beautiful Desert Home with Fantastic Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stay at Sondra's beautiful home in La Quinta and it will not be my last!! The home is very spacious with a great courtyard in the front perfect for relaxing in the evening. During the day, the backyard is fantastic for enjoying the sunshine. She has a gorgeous pool and hot tub which overlook the golf course, as well as a BBQ great for grilling. Sondra is wonderful to work with as she is a great communicator and was very helpful during both the booking process, as well as during our stay. I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a relaxing getaway in the desert.

Paradise in La Quinta!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you for opening your doors to us again. I just have too many compliments to pay you! We absolutely love your home in the desert. The girls had a fabulous time swimming, taking naps and enjoying quiet family time together. Your home has everything, it is spot on perfect. Oh, and after my family left, my additional golf week with my friend was unbelievable!!! We played PGA West Stadium, PGA West Mountain course, Pete Dye at Westin Mission Hills, and Desert Willow Firecliff course. What a treat that was! Fairways were like carpet! We had the heat on our backs but the whole place to ourselves. What a great vacation thanks to you and Eric. Thank you!!!!!

This property is truly an Oasis in the desert.

  • 5 of 5

When I walked in the home it is one of the nicest homes I have stayed in. Is has Wifi, TV, view to die for, top of the line appliances and full bar. Dining table and fire place outside if you needed it. Looking on the golf course double fairway, BBQ and seating outside. Pool in lovely with a beach walk-in area and Spa.

There are many great restaurants in Old town La Quinta not far from the home. Great food of all kinds with entertainment etc. Lots of golf courses which we enjoyed. Hiking trails and lots to do all over the desert from the tram in Palm Springs to Tennis, living desert, trips to fault which was interesting..Need a lot of time just to see it all. I will be back for sure and recommend this property and the hostess decribed it perfectly. Thank you for the chance to write this review of your lovely designed home and it's amenities.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Had a few issues - one with the guard gate and one with the wireless. Sondra answered her phone both times and took care of them immediately. Definitely would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Heidi, Thank you so much for your positive review..As you know my goal is to have everything in good order when my guests arrive. If there is a mishap sometimes I do my best to have it corrected immediately. My guests who had been there a few days before never mentioned any problems. I do apologize for the inconvenience. I hope you will keep us in mind for another time when you visit the Desert.It was a pleasure having you as a guest.
