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.

Beautiful desert home

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything I hoped for - a beautiful home with a wonderful, private, and quiet backyard and pool. The house was spacious and fully equipped (even the TV remote was easy to use). Great property!

A wonderful two weeks in our home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Gail's house March 4-March 18 and were impressed with our entire experience. We are frequent users of VRBO and have always had positive experiences. This house did not disappoint. The decorating was neutral and very tasteful. The kitchen was stocked beyond anything we have encountered before. The backyard was a dream. Gail set up a beautiful atmosphere. The house was sparkling upon arrival and soothing music greeted us when we entered the house. Bedding was excellent, and the location is also excellent. We routinely walked into Old Town La Quinta. It took less than 20 minutes and the restaurants were lovely. Thanks Gail for making our vacation so memorable. We would love to come back.

Couldn't have had a better vacation....

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house in La Quinta. When we entered the house there was music playing and the house was in tip-top shape. Everything that you would need for your stay was thought of and taken care of. Felt like a 5-star hotel....

The Sleep Number beds were wonderful and the Master Bedroom/Ensuite was HUGE.

For 6 people there was ample space that everyone had their own space and didn't feel cramped. The pool and hot tub were very enjoyable as were the Misters on the patio. Made the experience that much more enjoyable. Very close to shopping & grocery stores. Gail made us feel very welcomed and we are looking to stay here again!

Thank you again Gail and we would highly recommend this property.

Great Property, A Must Stay if you are in La Quinta...

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have had a better vacation home....

We loved everything about our week at this house!

Everything was provided for your stay, music was on in the house when we arrived and the house was in tip top shape. The master suite and bedroom was huge and the beds in all 3 bedrooms were wonderful to sleep on with the sleep number beds. We had 6 people in the house and no one felt cramped in the house. Everyone could have space to themselves either inside or outside. The location was close to shopping, groceries and restaurants if you want to eat out but everything you needed in a kitchen was there so we ate in most nights. We are already talking about coming back next year. Gail was great in regards to any questions we had and very friendly.

Thank you again Gail for making your home and us feel so warm and inviting!

Wonderful vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our month stay in this exceptional home.

The house is spacious, immaculate, and very homey. The master suite is beautiful overlooking the pool and hot tub with a very comfortable sleep number bed. Gail could not have been more gracious or accommodating. It is well stocked and nicely equipped so cooking/grilling and eating in were a breeze. We LOVED the location. An easy 3/4 mile walk into Old Town where we often dined in the evenings. A short jaunt to the grocery store and pharmacy. Close to the golf courses and hiking trails. Gail keeps the pool at a perfect temperature and is always available to answer questions or concerns. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Gail for making us feel so at home.
