Overview

California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Located behind the gates of Puerta Azul in the PGA West area of La Quinta is our enchanting single story Santa Barbara-style home. Bring your golf clubs, tennis racquets, putters and walking shoes while we supply all the accoutrements for an unforgettable escape amid towering palm trees and blooming bougainvillea beneath the desert sky. Our delightful hideaway is situated in the rear of this ultra quiet complex just a sandal-toss from one of the two resort-style swimming pools. Puerta Azul is set against the Santa Rosa Mountains and surrounded by multi-million dollar developments and just a short distance from Old Town La Quinta, the Polo Grounds and some of the best golf courses in the entire desert.

Beyond the signature blue door is a stunning tiled entry with 12-foot ceilings that leads to the Great Room where you’ll find a gourmet kitchen with new appliances including a refrigerator and freezer with icemaker and water dispenser, dishwasher, microwave oven, gas range, pantry and counter seating for two. The kitchen is fully-stocked with new flatware, pots/pans, dishes, toaster, wine and champagne glasses, coffeemaker and more. The tastefully decorated Great Room, bathed in natural light, is ideal for entertaining with a love seat and sofa, fireplace, stereo and flat screen television with a door that opens to the small backyard with mountain views. The dining area, also part of the Great Room, has seating for six.

The Master Bedroom is carpeted and features a brand new Westin Heavenly Bed Queen-size bed (delivered October 2014) with flat screen television, plenty of natural light and a master bath with a dual vanity and plenty of storage for toiletries, a separate glass-enclosed shower and soaking tub, private commode and walk-in closet with plenty of room to hang clothes and shelves for luggage and shoes.

The Guest Bedroom is also carpeted and features a daybed with trundle that can be used as (2) single beds or when adjoined together create a king-size bed. This room also has a television, Play Station and DVD. Nearby is the guest bathroom with a shower/tub combo, sink and commode. Off the hallway you’ll find a new concealed washer and dryer as well as a linen closet stocked with plenty of towels, sheets and extra blankets.

We also offer a selection of magazines and books to enjoy while nesting at our house plus cable television, Internet access and a single car garage with plenty of additional parking nearby. Rate includes all utilities, cable and secure Internet.

Puerta Azul features 2 resort-style swimming pools; a Club House with poker tables, a pool table, plenty of seating, a kitchen, fitness center; a tennis court; bocci ball; and a putting green. There is also a greenbelt, fireplaces with outdoor seating, and poolside barbecues. A live-in resort manager is also on duty.

We're 5 minutes from the Polo Grounds where the Coachella Music Festival and StageCoach Music Festival take place in April. We're also 5 minutes from the PGA Golf Tournament location, which tees off every January. Another 5 minutes from Old Town La Quinta.

Why Elizabeth Borsting chose California Desert

Palm Springs is the quintessential getaway from Los Angeles, and we've been coming here since we were teens. We fell in love with Puerta Azul as soon as we saw it. We wanted a weekend retreat where we could hang out with our kids, but still feel like we were staying at a resort. Our little piece of paradise in Puerta Azul met every criteria with its resort-like amenities, quiet location, and breathtaking views.

What makes this house unique

We love getting away from the hustle and bustle of LA when we can. While in La Quinta we'll stroll around Old Town La Quinta, grab a date shake at a local fruit stand, or just lounge poolside at Puerta Azul. Every moment we spend here feels like a holiday.

Fantastic Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home to stay for the weekend during the Coachella festival. The house was located inside of a beautiful community and the house itself was immaculate. We were very comfortable throughout the weekend and couldn't have chosen better accommodations. The owner was very responsive and a joy to communicate with. Ray at the HOA was extremely helpful during the music festival, providing us transportation services for a reasonable fee. I would 100% book this home again! Thank you :)

Lovely Secluded Home in Puerta Azul, La Quinta

  • 4 of 5

On our first trip to Palm Springs in January, we booked this lovely home. It was so quiet and we appreciated the secured gate. The owner was wonderful to deal with, and the on-site property manager welcomed us upon arrival and showed us around the home. The bed was comfy and the master bath very spacious. Lots of linens, and the kitchen had everything we needed. One of the pools was right across from the house, and we ate our lunch there, and also sipped on our wine by the pool side fireplace one evening as we watched the sunset. The owner had set out a bottle of wine and a bag of Trader's Joe's coffee to welcome us to her home, which was very thoughtful and appreciated. It was an excellent base for us as we enjoyed the Old Towne, Polo Match, and toured the Palm Springs area.

Great home, away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying for a month. We absolutely love the house. It truly becomes our home, away from home. Everything is there that you could ever want. I especially love the peace and quiet, the pool and the clubhouse. We spent our lunch hour everyday either swimming or walking the wonderful trails. Can't say enough about our stay--just lovely.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful get-away at this property. We felt welcomed and taken care of. Everything was perfect, down to the lovely neighbour to show us in, the treats awaiting on the dining table, and the stylish home, so close to the pools and club house. It is like a very private resort. Looking forward to coming back. Thank you!

Beautiful La Quinta Home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful month at a beautiful property in La Quinta. The home is lovely and so tasteful. It was a comfortable home that we were able to entertain in, and make ours for the month. All aspects of the home were as described or better. We enjoyed the pool, fitness center, and peacefulness of the property location.

Weather in February was perfect for our hiking activities. Also took in the street fairs and polo matches (thanks for the use of lawn chairs for Polo). We will be back!!

I found my weekend stay at this location to be fabulous! I enjoyed the house immensely. It had all the amenities necessary to make the trip very homey! It was clean, nicely decorated and very accommodating! I enjoyed the large lap pool which was a short walk from the house! The weather was beautiful and lots of shopping, dining, and golfing nearby! When I return to the desert, I will certainly come back to this home!
