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

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.

Great house great pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house was updated, very clean and well stocked kitchen with everything we needed to enjoy our long weekend.

The pool is great (not huge) but perfect size for cooling off and relaxing also great Views of the mountains.

A little off the beaten path but still close enough to most anything you need (few mile drive). Quiet neighborhood. We would for sure be back again. Owner very responsive.

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Terry was a great host who was easy to get a hold of at anytime. The house is beautiful and in a great location. The home has everything you need for a vacation- all you need to bring is your food beverage and toiletries! We will definitely be back again.

Better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for Weekend 2 of Coachella in 2016. Terry was amazing to work with. Access to the house was easy and straightforward. And once we saw the property, we were so surprised with how spacious the home was. The home is better in person than in pictures (and I already thought the home looked nice in pictures). Super clean. Plenty of linens and towels. All the kitchen/cooking utensils/equipment you can think of. Convenient to stores (<10 min drive to Trader Joe's). Pool is perfect size to hang out in on a hot desert day. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks Terry!!

Golf and tennis vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a vacation in the Coachella Valley.

La Quinta has a much quieter small town feel that we prefer over the other cities in the valley and the La Quinta Cove is a fantastic location with mountains within a few blocks and on three sides.

It is a very short walk to several parks and hiking trails.

Bicycles are provided and there are several trails nearby.

It is less than a mile to historic old town.

The Pritchford house is nicely furnished and very comfortable.

The main living area offers an outstanding open concept with dining area, kitchen, and family room that open up to the patio in back and the pool in the front courtyard.

The garage is centrally located and very convenient for unloading suitcases and groceries.

We stay in La Quinta once or twice every year and this is one of our favorites.

The house has everything one would need to feel at home away from home.

Great value and very pleasant experience

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed the home, nicely situated next to foothills and within walking or biking distance to several good restaurants and shops. The posted pictures do not do it justice. Property is well maintained, fantastic wifi and Verizon fios service, weekly pool and garden service and we arranged weekly housekeeping service for a reasonable rate. we enjoyed the jacuzzi and very private courtyard. with a master bedroom and 2 additional bedrooms, extra guests were easily accommodated. easy to seat 6 for meals and in living room. excellent value. roomy garage parking. we shall return.
