Home Sweet Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our new favorite VRBO home in PGA West! We had a fantastic week's stay in March. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could want to make it feel just like home. We enjoyed the large screen TV every evening and the views of the lake from the patio are amazing. Dave and Stephanie were great to deal with and truly care about their guests. We loved everything about their wonderful home and can't wait for our next trip!

Perfect Stay!!,

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home for five days and loved everything about it. The house is gorgeous and very well equipped with everything you could ever wish for in a home. Dave was so great to work with and was so kind. We would love to go back to paradise in the dessert again someday. We also loved the location and was close to many golf courses we played! The house was immaculate and we were so comfortable there. Thank you for sharing your lovely home! Best wishes, Sally and John

The Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family went to PGA West with another family for Spring Break 2016. A total of 4 adults and 4 children age 7-11. No one in the group had ever been to the greater Palm Springs area and were not sure what to expect. Personally, I have reviewed numerous homes in this area over the past year as a potential second family home. But before we make that decision, a trip down was necessary. Bottom line after staying at this property it changed my opinion of what I thought I wanted and what I now know I must have.

First off, I love the PGA West neighborhood. Very secure, very well manicured, just super nice. Entering the home we all were very impressed. Not sure if you can tell by the pictures, but the ceiling height is probably 20 feet or more, so the entire house feels very spacious. It is also has a very open floor plan. You can tell there was likely many upgrades/remodel done recently. The Master suite was HUGE. The Master BR was probably as big as one of our bedrooms where we live. The beds were extremely comfortable. The main living area was very nice with a super large TV, fireplace and lots of seating. The kitchen was spacious with tons of cabinet space and every utensil, plate, glass, or spice you need to complete the meal.

Highlights: The pool area was Super. It was a side yard pool, not the typical backyard version. I now prefer the side yard pool, because it offers so much more privacy then in the backyard. Views of the mountains were fantastic from the pool area. Temps were perfect in both the pool and hot tub. The flowers and palms were beautiful. The actual backyard faces a nice pond with many waterfalls. Other houses circle the same pond. This is different then the homes I have looked at before with mostly golf course views in the backyard. I actually now prefer not to have the golf course view. This is both more private and more serene. There is a nice natural gas fire pit in the backyard as well as ample seating. We took advantage of this each night as well as for morning coffee. Dining options were either inside with room for 6-8 or outside with the same seating.

Overall, we would highly recommend this property and will definitely be back

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing and was the perfect accomodation for our group. We felt as though we had our own personal resort. From the large and stylish kitchen to the ample and well appointed common areas, we could not have asked for more. But what we enjoyed the most was the beautiful outdoor space. Whether sitting by the outdoor gas fireplace within a few steps of the lake with its waterfalls or enjoying the privacy of the pool and hot tub, we spent a good amount of our time appreciating the beauty and peacefulness of the outdoors. We also enjoyed walking and biking throughout the quiet community, and even saw a bighorn sheep on one of our bike excursions. As we planned our stay, the owners were very helpful in addressing our questions and concerns.

Fantastic Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love golf and we love La Quinta. This home was absolutely PERFECT! We had 5 adults (2 couples and 1 single) and the set up of the home was just perfect!! Everyone had their own space, however the common areas of the home are perfect for entertaining. The pool and spa were a hit after golf each day! As well the fire pit area offers just a beautiful view of the lake and waterfalls.

All of the beds were super comfortable, the house was SPOTLESS, and the kitchen is a chef's dream!

Dave was GREAT! - Renting the house was totally seamless and the communication response time was just excellent!

We would definitely recommend this home and would rent again.

Thank you Dave and Stephanie for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for three nights for a guys' golf trip in the desert. The house was very nice, very clean and very well located. We didn't use any of the amenities as we golfed from sun up to sundown. But, we slept well and enjoyed the stay. Dave was great - always responsive and there to make the trip easy for us. Would recommend the home, and would reserve again.
