About Eileen Holmes

Hi, my name is Eileen and I love to travel and meet people from all over the world. I work long hours and wanted a place to come to just relax and get re-energized, but be able to get back to reality quickly. I grew up and live in Los Angeles and I love it! I love the diversity, the many restaurants, art events and more importantly the great weather. I love to ride my bike to the beach, have a great breakfasts or lunch and still have lots of time to do other things. La Quinta reminded me of this.... No beaches....but riding my bike to breakfast and coming home and starting my day. I fell in love with the La Quinta Cove and wanted others to experience this form of tranquil living. I will be retiring in 3 years and this is my way of preparing for retirement.

Eileen Holmes purchased this house in 2013

Why Eileen Holmes chose California Desert

After visiting some friends in La Quinta a few years ago I knew this was where I wanted to be. This community, located in the Cove is very peaceful and full of its own personality. At night the stars light up the sky and there's this everlasting feeling of relaxation. I selected this home because of the amazing mountain views. Breath taking views that make me one to touch the mountains. It's great to just sit out and have your morning tea or coffee and take in the scenery. This was my 'Desert Retreat' and once i saw this home I knew it was for me. Hope you can enjoy it as I do.

What makes this house unique

My home is very cozy, with an open floor plan. It has a nice covered rear patio with colorful Bougainvilleas, desert plants and a recently planted lemon and orange tree. I love the high walls for extra privacy! There's a surround sound system inside and the amazing social pool located in the front court yard. This home is ideal for a quiet retreat or small family gatherings. There are great hiking trails, biking paths or you can just take an early morning walk next to the Santa Rosa mountains. This property is perfectly located and on a great block with great neighbors. It's my perfect Gem!

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

We travel to LaQuinta about every 2 to 3 months . I am a former resident. Moved out of state but come back to visit family and friends and relax. I decided we should try different places, we have rented 3 different homes, one became our favorite and we rented 3 times, however that home was sold. My husband and I are so happy to find a new favorite in Troye's Retreat. The home is very well designed for comfort, the colors, decor very soothing. We host a family dinner and found the open floor plan great for cooking, serving and conversing while family visits. Its so nice cause family lives in LaQuinta so nice that they can come over then we have this cozy place to our selves after. Owner supplies toiletries, supplies that they themselves would use and a nice "welcome" setup of coffee, latties. Quality we haven't found in the other 4 rentals. Owner always answers your concerns in a timely manner.

Would love to be there right now but we are now looking out our window at lots of snow. Makes it all the better to go back to Troye's Retreat

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

Eileen was super helpful in booking our stay! A group pf my girlfriends and I went to Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate my 30th Birthday and stayed at Eileen's home. It was perfect! Enough room for everyone to have their own space, and bed. Detailed instructions on how to work everything and a beautiful and comfortable environment. I felt like I was visiting family. The pool was the perfect escape from the desert heat (Palm Springs was experiencing a heat wave during our visit)! We had a ball! Best birthday I've had in years! We may make it an annual thing! Thanks Eileen for allowing us to stay in your home.

Great Get-a-way from LA

  • 5 of 5

When you first arrive at the property, the first thing you notice is how clean it is and how great is smelled. The place is beautifully decorated and is a perfect retreat from busy Los Angeles. I highly recommend Eileen's Desert Retreat for anyone who want to get away for couple of days or months. It is not a detail that she missed!! Thanks so much for the wonderful Stay. Valerie

Eileen met us at her home with a beautiful flower arrangement and cold drinks. The home was very cozy and had everthing we needed for a 4 day weekend. Very clean with extremely comfortable beds. We all look forward to reserving her home next year. Thank you,

Oh, the serenity!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited La Quinta several times and usually stay with friends (but they had other guests this trip). We're glad we had the opportunity to stay at Eileen's lovely home! It was perfect for us - and would be for a larger group as well as the house is quite large. The pool area was just beautiful, especially in the mornings, sitting/lying in the sun (which is an almost permanent fixture for those who aren't familiar with the region's weather!) Not to mention the quiet and peaceful - especially for us, coming from a busy, hectic city (Hong Kong). The house itself is tastefully furnished, but also homely enough that you feel comfortable. The billiard table is a great addition, as is the other outdoor area with bbq. Location is good - you're not far from the Old Town - cute shops and cafes etc., and not too far a drive from other supermarkets and stores. Eileen was an excellent and obliging host, we would definitely stay again and can highly recommend her home.

Girls get-away weekend

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my birthday with my 2BFFs.This property was perfect for a girls get-away weekend. We each had our own bedroom. The beds are so comfortable & the owner provided all the necessary amnenities for a relaxing & enjoyable stay, including fluffy towels & toiletries& good entertainment. While there we went to the Classic Car Show in El Paseo in Palm Desert, went to a couple of casinos, the Indio Tamale Festival & had an absolutely delicious pizza from the Stuft Pizza restaurant in La Quinta.I would definitely recommend this home to friends & family. It' s close to a number of places had a great get-away!
