About Lisa Elhardt

While escaping from the cold, wet winter of the Pacific Northwest, we fell in love with the Coachella Valley. Buying a home here was not in the plans until we discovered La Quinta Cove. The views are breath taking and the weather is a perfect tonic. Rugged mountains, lush plantings,a wonderful combination of south west and mediterranean architecture combine with endless recreational activities. The bike path and walking trails right next to our home is unique. Just a 3 block walk to the park and Old Town restaurants, wine bar, shopping, art, farmers market and museums. McCallum Theater is just 9 miles away. We love the culture and walk ability of our native Seattle and don't think we are missing a thing in La Quinta. We love that every thing in the desert is so close. You can get anywhere in 30 minutes.No traffic. This is just a very relaxing place to be. Best decision we have ever made.

great property

Very nice bungalow with a great location within walking distance of La Quinta downtown. Bungalow is comfortable and has everything we needed. Landscaping is lovely. Thanks also to Al Garcia the property manager who was very helpful! We would stay here again.

Lovely house in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here two weeks in February. The house is very comfortable and well stocked with everything you will need for your stay. The outstanding feature of the property is the garden: very extensive with lots of comfortable seating, loungers, salt-water pool and barbecue. We were able to pick grapefruits, lemons and oranges and all were delicious. The neighbourhood is very good; felt safe at all times and we enjoyed walking the bear creek trail which passes the house. There are many restaurants and plenty of food markets to choose from in the area. We found La Quinta ideally placed for many excursions to places of interest, especially Coachella Valley Preserve, Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and of course Joshua Tree National Park.

The only downside we would say is that the kitchen has very limited storage; our first trip out to buy groceries we discovered there was hardly any space to store anything. Every cupboard was already packed with things and even the obvious larder-sized cupboard where you might think to store packets of cereal etc was already full of DVDs and books. We enjoy a glass of wine with our dinner, but couldn't find proper wine glasses anywhere.

The property manager, Al Garcia, was responsive and very helpful.

All in all, we would recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay! Me and my son, a landscape architect designed and built the garden. I agree it is a wonderful surround for the salt water pool. I think you make a valid point concerning kitchen storage. In an effort to supply every kitchen item a cook would want, we are a family of enthusiastic chefs, we may have left less storage than is ideal. I will consolidate. The wine glasses provided are pool safe but I will provide more standard wine glasses in the future. Thank you for taking the time to write a helpful review. Thanks Lisa

Lovely backyard

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. This is such a beautiful property. Al, the property manager met us and gave us the key. We had a lovely time lounging by the pool. There is a grapefruit and tangerine tree in the backyard that smelled wonderful. The fruit was edible but we decided to juiced the fruit with the juicer provided by the host. I'd love to come back and rent his house again. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your property Lisa!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our weeklong stay in La Quinta. Al was very much available for any questions we had. The yard is the highlight of the home and the kids had a great time picking citrus and making juice!

Charm in La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had such a wonderful stay at Casa Elhardt. The house is appointed with all the creature comforts: a large collection of games, dvds, a well-stocked pantry, appliances, outdoor grill, cookware and bakeware. The decor is very charming. The landscaping is lovely and the pool is super clean and well shaded. The property manager is extremely professional and attentive. We will definitely come back.
