Beautiful house with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our girls getaway. It was immaculate and the decor was beautiful. Everything we could have needed was made available to us. Unlike most rentals, the kitchen was incredibly organized and all the dishes, utensils, pots, glasswares, etc. matched. Small touches like these really make the difference. The couches were really comfortable and the huge tv was perfect to watch the Olympics. There were ample towels for the pool and bathrooms. The showers had small travel size Aveda soaps which came in handle after a full day in the sun. The master bedroom was huge; much bigger than expected. All the mattresses were sleep number beds which were incredible. The pool was a bit smaller than expected but still plenty big for all of us to float. Expect the pool to be warm if you plan a trip in the middle of summer. We had brought a couple of our own pool noodles but there were plenty in the garage for us to use as well. The outdoor furniture and misters were great in the 115 degree heat too. Overall, we can't wait to plan another trip next year. Our only complaint was that we didn't stay long enough. Highly recommend this oasis in the desert!

Will be back again!!

  • 5 of 5

My girl friends and I rented the house again for our annual girls Palm Springs weekend, and we will be back again next year. The house is perfect for a quiet getaway, with all the extras you could need/want (even misters). The owner Gail goes above and beyond. She could not be nicer or more accommodating. Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a little quiet and relaxation. Its' such a great find, I kinda want to keep it to myself, so that I can guarantee availability for my future stays.

A fantastic home for a relaxing getaway in La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

I could not believe how stunning this home was as soon as I walked in!!! The very first part of the house I explored was the large open kitchen with new appliances with a wide variety of cooking equipment and dishware, easily one of the best kitchens I have seen in my travels. The family room has a large couch with an even larger TV and sound system, very comfortable and is a nice place for everyone to get together and watch a movie. The bedrooms have their own sleep number bed which makes for a good nights rest for anyone; they also each have a TV for those looking to watch their own shows away from the family room, so everyone wins! The garage has a wide variety of games and activities available for those who want to keep busy in their free time, too.

Now here is where the fun times begin: the back yard. If this wasn't already an awesome place, the back yard is definitely the cherry on top. First, there is a crystal clear pool with a beautiful elevated hot tub that cascades water into the pool. If you find yourself wanting to stay cool in the back, but don't want to take a dip, the misters are there to gently cool you off! In addition to these great back yard features, there is a large gas-fired grill and outdoor table set for you and guests to enjoy your favorite food and beverage in the wonderful outdoors.

There is a binder that has all of the instructions you should ever need for the home, and Gail has done a great job in making sure it is very easy to navigate and has filled it with great information about the various amenities in the house and around the La Quinta area. Thank you Gail!

A beautiful, relaxing home in La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is just what we needed for a gals weekend away. The home is clean and lovely, looks like a model home yet feels so homey. The owner Gail was so kind and easy to work with, which always makes things much nicer.

There are ceiling fans and TVs in all of the rooms as well as comfortable beds. The backyard and pool are beautiful and there are plenty of really nice patio chairs and loungers, a nice BBQ and bar area. The patio misters are a welcome bonus in this heat season we are in.

This home is located very close to many restaurants, retail shopping and grocery stores.

We will rent again, thank you Gail!
