About Terry Pitchford

We are a British family who relocated to California in 2001. We discovered this area as avid Tennis watchers/players and found ourselves returning again and again. We love spending time here from fall to spring and never cease to marvel at the climate!

Terry Pitchford purchased this house in 2012

Why Terry Pitchford chose La Quinta Cove

This property appealed to us because of its spacious airy feel, it has 10' ceilings. Its very private and has a secluded feel, but it's just minutes away from all the activities and ameneties you could wish for.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite spot in the house is looking out onto the pool from the dining room. All you can see is your own private courtyard with the Santa Rosa mountains as your backdrop.

Truly wonderful vacation rental!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a stay at this wonderful La Quinta home. And all we can say is WOW!!!!! We've stayed at several vacation rental homes in the Valley and this was one of, if not the best experiences! Its an awesome house/neighborhood.....quiet, spacious, well appointed, close to Old Town, etc..... The home has everything you could want in a rental; its very clear Mr. Pitchford takes pride in this property. The check in process was easy, the pool area was great! I could go on, but take my word for it....this home is AWESOME! We will be back!

Lovely home in LaQuinta

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely home!

Everything you need, close to Old Town LaQuinta stores and restaurants, lovely private patio and pool in a quiet neighborhood. Great location for Tennis, hiking, and all that Palm Springs offers. Would recommend to anyone.

Paradise in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

Terry's gorgeous Santa Fe rental has become a second home for us. We love the location in The Cove surrounded by mountains and close to shopping, restaurants, points of interest and golf. The garage is very spacious (I could not fit my truck in most of the previous rentals). The living room is most comfortable as are the bedrooms.. A well equipped kitchen with the adjoining dining room are ideal and open up through patio doors to the pool. Our grand kids love the pool as much as we love the spa. But the very best aspect of this rental is the owner himself. Terry strives to improve the property year to year; this year was the addition of a pool bar, the other a Weber grill. Terry is so accommodating, always asking how he can improve our stay or if there is anything else we need. Any issues, if any arise, are always quickly dealt with. I highly recommend this property. This is why we return year after year.

Enjoyable stay in La Quinta

  • 4 of 5

We started off on the wrong foot since the address we were given was incorrect. But we eventually arrived and quite enjoyed the facility. The house was most enjoyable and the small swimming Pool was perfect for our two grandchildren. The spa was enjoyable for the Adults. Privacy with the high walls was appreciated and the immediate neighbors were considerate. Location was short drive distances to amenities and Eisenhower road with its’ traffic noise was just far enough away.

All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Beautiful and spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 had a wonderful weekend at this property. The pictures do not do this place justice! It was incredibly spacious, clean, and stocked - there was even an entire closet full of towels and linens. Terry was a wonderful host and was very responsive. We would love to come back next year for our next mini vacation!

AMAZING!! Definitely a "home away from home".

  • 5 of 5

This was definitely my best rental experience ever. The owner is very accommodating and responsive, even offering to mail me a belt accidentally left behind. The home is absolutely gorgeous and has anything and everything you could possibly need or want. My girlfriends and I basically lived in the pool and BBQ area, watched movies, relaxed, and slept like babies in the comfortable rooms at night. Location is central and easy to get to the Polo Field, hiking, etc. Hoping to come back and make this a yearly girls trip. Highly recommended!
