Beautiful place and a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Based on all the positive reviews and the photos, my husband and I kind of figured this place was going to be a winner and we couldn't have been more right.

All the rooms were nice but the master bed and bath were spectacular. It's like being in a house but with the hotel amenities such as small shampoo bottles, conditioner and soap. Q-tips were provided and every bathroom had a hair dryer. The sleep number beds are super comfortable. The pool and the jacuzzi were great.

The pictures in the ad don't lie, if anything they don't do the place justice. I was pleasantly surprised with all that the kitchen had to offer. Fully stocked with plenty of spices and there was cooking oil. More pans you could ever need, a pancake grill, a waffle iron, a blender. A coffee maker and coffee was provided! Even a small crockpot, which came in handy for the cheese dip we brought. There were plenty of games to entertain us and the provided bikes came in handy to ride to a nearby convenient store.

The location is great. It's a nice, quiet neighborhood, perfect for relaxing. It's only a couple of miles from a Trader Joe's and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Gail provided all the information you could possibly need in a handy binder and for any other possible questions, she was just a text away.

We're already planning our next stay at this lovely house.

Delightful Weekend Get away

  • 5 of 5

Three of us meet every summer to celebrate our Birthdays which are within 2 weeks of each other. We usually go to a hotel but decided to try a house. It was a wonderful experience -- the house is very comfortable, lovely, and very well equipped. We mostly stayed outside in the pool or in the family room, so we didn't get to use much of the nice amenities. The outside is a quiet and pretty retreat.

Best Family Vacation in La Quinta!!

  • 5 of 5

Best find in La Quinta!!

First off Gail, the owner was super easy and very quick to respond to my inquiry!!!

She had everything you could think of in the house.

The house was super roomy for us 5 adults and 4 children.No one was in each other's way.

The kitchen was TOTALLY STOCKED.you don't need anything except food.

Lots of space to spread out and eat.

Bedrooms were big and comfy.Loved that there were fans in each room.

Garage, although too warm to play, had a ping pong table and enough room for a mini van and a car.

TV was huge!!that was a plus with the husbands!!

Pool area was more than expected.Misters came in handy since it was well over 100 degrees.There was ample sun for us sunbathers and ample shade for the littles and those who wanted a break from the sun.

The BBQ came in handy for BBQ night.and the fire pit was perfect during our evening swims.

It's a perfect house for families!

Without a doubt we will be staying at Gail's house again in the future!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. It was so easy to work with the owner and the home was beautifully decorated and perfectly kept. This home had all the amenities. We will definitely rent this home again. The location is so close to downtown and we walked to Starbucks almost every morning. Hot tub and pool were the perfect temperature. So nice to have a TV in every room. Beds were so comfortable. Thank you Gail for a great vacation staying at your beautiful home.
