Great Visit to Santa Rosa Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect 4-night stay at this property. Very spacious, clean and well kept. Fast WiFi, TVs in every room, laundry room, full kitchen - it was all we needed. The pool and tennis court are just steps away from the back patio. The neighborhood is quiet and serene with the gorgeous desert mountains looming over the neighborhood a short distance away. We were in the desert for the big Desert Trip music festival - after long days surrounding by tens of thousands of people and very loud music, it was such a pleasure to come back to this quiet oasis at night. Even with all this peace and quiet, amenities are very close by - you can walk in 5 minutes over to the world-famous La Quinta Resort and enjoy world class restaurants, or hop in your car or ride your bike in less than 5 minutes to shopping areas with all the supermarkets and shops you'll need. The owner contacted me prior to our stay and told me to call her personally if we needed anything during our visit; despite her gracious offer, we did not need to bug her because it all worked out great. I hope this property is available again next time I come back to the desert because I would definitely stay here again.

Santa Rosa Cove Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly kept, lovely two bedroom+study home was perfect for our family of four (two teenagers). The kitchen was fully stocked, the house and patios were immaculate, the pool was splendid -- a very short walk: close but not too close. La Quinta Resort was a five minute walk across pleasant grassy area. We will be back!

Perfect "Last Minute" Rental

  • 5 of 5

An impromptu family trip left us with the dilemma of finding a rental. Luckily, we found the "Gem of the Desert". This quaint home was the perfect fit for our family of four. Great location, comfortable and sufficient living arrangements...we couldn't have been happier and will definitely look for this same home next time we return.
