4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private House With impressive Mountain View

Enjoy this beautiful 3 bedroom home plus a Casita bedroom in the lovely area of La Quinta. Awesome location, walk to Trader Joe's and ONLY 6 miles to Cochella Fest/Stage Coach.

This home is set on a quarter acre with large front yard and a gated pool/grass backyard offering mountain views and plenty of privacy.

The living area is an open plan with a 'Boutique' style interior design. It has a wood burning fireplace. There are 2 new 46/39 inch flat screen TV's tons of cable stations and Fios internet included.

Beautiful new contemporary kitchen, deep sink, tall faucet, quiet Bosch dishwasher and fabulous Electrolux gas stove top. All our guest love it for entertaining.

The master bedroom is HUGE and is separated from the other 2 bedrooms by the living areas and hallway giving added privacy. This bedroom features a comfy queen mattress and a TV (not pictured). There is also a large walk-in closet. The master bath beautiful glass slump sink vanity.

The second bedroom, also large, has a queen sized bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds and the Casita has a double bed. They all have great décor with fun artwork and high end 100% cotton sheets. There are lots of extra blankets, sheets and fluffy towels. There is also a selection of pillows styles.

The home has a saltwater pool it is an 'Endless' style with a big rock mountain view almost in the backyard. There’s a fun 'Hotel Style' outdoor gas fire pit, as well as a manly Weber BBQ and mature landscaping.

We have lived in the valley for over 10 years and purchased this property for its location and the comfortable standard of living that it offers. We are happy to share our home with you, and know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Convenient & comfortable stay for Coachella

  • 5 of 5

Karen was an amazing host and very easy to talk! She was fast in responding to all my text messages when I needed her. I also forgot my jacket at the house and she was nice enough to ship it back to me.

The house itself was spacious and convenient to lots of restaurants. It was also an easy 12 minute drive to Coachella! The house has been renovated and looks great! Glad they had an extra room in the backyard, but it's a bit separated from the rest of the house and looked a bit older in comparison to the rest of the house. Nonetheless had an pleasant stay and all my friends loved it!

Would definitely book again!

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property is an excellent place for a family to get away. The property is exactly as described. It is clean, well maintained, well decorated and has all the necessary utensils in the kitchen. The property has a gas BBQ connected to the house, endless pool, fire pit and outside bar. Plenty of seating inside and out. There is plenty of sleeping space as well. The property has a wonderful view of the local mountains and is situated near everything - such as restaurants, movie theaters, Target, Walmart, Trader Joe's, grocery stores and anything else you can think of within a couple of miles. The owners are spectacular and very easy to work with. I would enthusiastically recommend this property to friends and family.

Very comfortable and charming property to rent - recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a break and chose this house because the pictures looked great and we wanted the privacy of renting somewhere, rather than staying in a hotel. It lived up to all expectations. Beautifully appointed, clean, light, airy, very comfortable and relaxing. A quiet and peaceful location but just a few minutes walk from stores and restaurants. We were greeted by the owner on arrival and she was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend this property.
