Lovely, private & peaceful home in LaQ cove

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay in Katia's lovely home. Weather was superb. Left the rain in Portland and had 10 sunny, beautiful days in La Quinta. We hiked every morning and enjoyed the beautiful pool in the afternoons. It was such a wonderful rest.

The home is wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Master bedroom is great. Bed...wonderful.

The only problem was there was no soap in the house for the bathrooms?! We wanted showers after our long drive and there wasn't a bar to be had or any hand soap by sinks.

Anyway, there are plenty of stores nearby. This is a wonderful home and we would love to come back. Thank-you Katia!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a wonderful time in La Quinta Peggy. You are such wonderful guests to have. You know that you can contact me anytime. You should have told me for the soap... Oscar would have went for you to get anything missing. :) Thank you very much!!! Katia

Comfortable Quiet Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family completely enjoyed our stay in this spacious La Quinta home. We had a few concerns when we arrived but Katia was quick to remedy and was a pleasure to speak with. The weather we could not control, but that did not stop us from jumping in the warm pool and hot tub. The beds were very comfortable and the duvets were new. The kitchen was well stocked and functional like our own home. The living room area is spacious with the vaulted ceilings. The yard is very private surrounded by trees and we stayed out late around the portable fire pit cooking hot dogs . The neighborhood was ultra quiet and the neighbors next to this house are pleasant to talk to. Within a 10 minute drive you can get to any grocery store, golf course or fast food outlet. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in the La Quinta area.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a mini vacation to just get away, have a change of scenery, and relax. This was my first time renting through VRBO, and let me say that our experience has been made extremely easy. How relaxing to sit in this beautiful private garden with a beverage and enjoy the view of the swimming pool, seeing the sunrise and sunset. This house is very tastefully decorated and the master bed was very comfortable. I received our deposit in less than 48h after we got back home. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away.

Very Cosy Getaway with a Peaceful mountain view

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful - Inside: Clean, light and spacious, well-furnished; Outside beautifully furnished too and very quiet. The owner, could not have been more gracious and accommodating. The pool is great with a gorgeous mountain view.

Ideal for a relaxing vacation with short drive to Old town La Quinta when you want to go to restaurants, Farmers market and shops.

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

The property could be nice with a little more upkeep. The house was dusted and clean on first appearance but...

1. One kitchen wall had what appeared to be dried food/beverage/puke...that had run down the wall at the time that it was fresh.

2. Kitchen cupboards and drawers needed to be cleaned inside (drinking glasses left a ring in the dust and a couple of the glasses were sitting in something sticky).

3. Living room couch is light colored and really dirty.

4. Master bathroom shower was covered in orange scum.

5. Not one room had any dressers/drawers. Nowhere to put your clothes away, so you have to live out of your suitcase.

6. Master bathroom had what appeared to be feces on the wall just above the toilet paper.

7. One of the pillows in the second bedroom (queen size bed) was cream on one side and the other side was grey with dirt.

8. The back yard needed some TLC as well. The grass was going to seed in places.

9. One valve on the hot tub did not work so we did not use the hot tub. (It doesn't run at night anyway...after the day cools off and the kids are in bed...what good it that?)

10. The pool was full of leaves - expected and we cleaned them out each day - but there was no way to clean the dirt and leaves off of the bottom of the pool. We were there on a holiday so the pool didn't get cleaned while we were there. In future, we will know to ask if the pool has a vacuum.

11. The pergola in the back yard...the linen shades had black stains. NOTHING like the picture. The furniture of course was dirty as it sits outside with no cleaning/maintenance.

12. The entire home was dusty in all of the closet’s etc...due to lack of use.

We probably wouldn't have taken the time to give a review except for the fact that our arrival was such a disappointing, miserable experience! We arrived at about 5:00 pm in the evening and it was 105 degrees outside and 100 degrees inside. The air conditioning had not been turned on in anticipation of our arrival. Unpacking was a nightmare! Our first night was very miserable. We had to go out to eat (with small children, after a long day/drive) just to get out of the house/heat.

One thing we did like was the cement floor. While not real attractive, it was very practicable when kids come in from swimming.

With a little TLC this could have been a very nice home/experience. We would not return.

Owner's Response: I should have noticed the obvious red flags you showed and never allowed you and your 6 guests to stay at my property. If you had ever contacted my manager or myself to let us know about any inconveniences at all we would have taken care of it the day of. The team that maintains the property are the kindest and most reliable people who would have been willing to come in the middle of the night to help. You indeed never contacted me until after your departure with your ridiculous comments. YOUR STRATEGY OF GETTING A FREE VACATION DID NOT WORK OUT AND YOUR BLACK MAIL/ REVENGE WITH THIS ABSUD FEEDBACK IS OUTRAGEOUS. I have reported you so you will be banned from renting from homeowners and try your filthy scam again. If you expect to have a butler waiting for you in the middle of the night with a fresh lemonade and sweeping before each of your steps then look for luxury property instead.
