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!

Gorgeous house & pool, wonderful owners, AMAZING vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better experience!!! The moment we walked in the house we were stunned how beautiful it was! All of the appliances were brand new and the decor was straight out of a magazine. The backyard is absolutely incredible -- large pergola over a beautiful terrace, sparkling pool, hot tub, grill, and even a small grassy area. Again, even the outdoor space was top-notch quality to include a remote control for the hot tub and automatic misters.

The owner, Gail, did a phone call with us as soon as we arrived to explain how to use everything and answer any questions we had. She was always available by text if we needed anything. We had a small issue with the hot tub filling during our stay and Gail immediately sent the pool guy out and deducted part of our fee for the inconvenience (without us even asking). The issue was resolved same-day.

There were bikes and pool toys in the garage for guest use. We biked all over town to include the cute little downtown of La Quinta. The basic kitchen necessities were also available (spices, oil, flour, etc).

We received our full security deposit refund within 24 hours of check out. A few days after we left, Gail emailed me to ask whether we had forgotten a portable speaker at the house. Apparently, the property management company cleaners found it. I was so impressed that they noticed we had left it, and even more so that they told us. We offered to pay for them to ship it back to us, but to save us the money, Gail offered to pick it up hand deliver it to us when she and her husband went out to the house a few weeks later. It turned out Gail lived in the same town I work it. Again, I was so impressed at the sincere professionalism and customer service.

I have already recommended this home to numerous friends and co-workers and would love to stay here again!!! It was amazing, as were the owners!!!

5 STAR LA QUINTA PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed a weekend in the middle of May. As soon as we walked in we felt at home. The property was clean, organized and well stocked. The yard is absolutely fabulous. The pool was a great temperature and our kids enjoyed playing in it for hours. Besides a grocery store run we never left the house. The ping pong table in the garage was a bonus!!

The owner provided detailed instructions and was a pleasure to work with. She has a beautiful home that we will be returning to.

rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations exceeded our expectations...right down to the beds which had a remote that each of us could use to adjust our mattress firmness. The house had everything we needed and was the perfect spot for a family to relax together and reconnect. Gail was easy to work with and the whole process from arrival to departure was seamless. Thank you for a fantastic experience.
