About Leslie Beckley

We are Western Oregonians who love to be outdoors and crave sunshine in the wintertime. Our youngest (twins) are finishing high school (they are 6th generation Oregonians!) so we are not able to visit La Quinta as often as we would like. We love to play tennis, golf, hike, fish, kayak, and grow trees. My husband is in the timber industry and I own a real estate brokerage. We love to travel but also look forward to spending more time in La Quinta in the coming years. I graduated from Cal Berkeley but we are avid Duck fans:) Our oldest daughter is a Captain in the Marines and our oldest son is a tennis pro now working his way into the family business...we lead very busy, full lives! We have a home in Eugene, Oregon and ranch properties in the Elkton area along the Umpqua River and Elk Creek.

Leslie Beckley purchased this house in 2010

Why Leslie Beckley chose California Desert

La Quinta Cove is a very special place. Old Town La Quinta is nearby and features a wonderful coffee shop, restaurants, shops and weekly farmer's markets and art fairs. The community of La Quinta is rich with amenities including a library, recreation centers, gorgeous Silver Rock golf course, polo grounds, and world renowned art and music venues. Indian Wells Tennis Gardens is home to a fabulous major tennis tournament each March. There are many outdoor treasures within easy drives including Joshua Tree National Monument, the Living Desert Museum, famous hiking trails, and the tram to the top of the mountains in Palm Springs. There is a private airport nearby and the Palm Springs airport is just 25 minutes away. Ontario Airport is just over and hour's drive, and LA is 2 hours, more or less, depending upon traffic. There are several casinos with frequent concerts, water parks and lots of activities for kids (parks, miniature golf, etc), and any type of shopping imaginable....from the high end El Paseo area in Palm Desert to the most incredible consignment/thrift stores and Premium Outlets about 45 minutes west of La Quinta.

What makes this house unique

This home is more Frank Lloyd Wright than Santa Fe style. It features open, well designed space that is luxurious yet comfortable. One can stay as active as possible, relax by the pool with a book or just gaze at the mountains directly off the back patio. The happy hours in this area are legendary! Stuft Pizza is a local favorite in Old Town La Quinta with everything from pizza to superb ahi tuna salads. This is a wonderful neighborhood with lots of privacy. The Tradition is across Avenida Bermudas...one of the most upscale gated communities in the valley. With hiking trails steps away, public (lighted) tennis courts just down the street and Silver Rock public golf course around the corner, we think that our location is ideal and perfect for the independent traveler. We love our La Quinta home and look forward to sharing it with our guests.

Three-peat Customers for Coachella Weekend 1!

  • 5 of 5

Leslie and her family graciously allowed for me and my group to stay at their lovely home for the third straight year for Coachella Weekend 1. As always the house was in immaculate condition upon our arrival, even with a bottle of prosecco waiting to get popped open once we finally made it to the desert on Thursday afternoon :)

We've grown quite accustomed to waking up refreshed and ready for action with the trusty Nespresso machine brewing hot espressos and Americanos to give us the jolt we need to start our day...relaxing in the hot tub before braving the Coachella crowds for the remainder of the day.

Should we return to the desert for a fourth consecutive year, we hope to come back to Leslie's wonderful oasis. Thanks as always, Leslie!

Great Stagecoach experience

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for Stagecoach with my sister and some friends. It was a beautiful home and a perfect place to relax in the morning before a long day at the concerts. The 3 king beds and pull out sofa made it great for the group. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone and stay here again.

Solar Heated Pool

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting this property. Owner added the Solar Heated Pool and it is wonderful to have!

Wifi recognized all our electronics, so it did feel like we were just walking into our own house. We love the location, quiet but easy access to grocery, restaurants and shopping. If we needed anything, the owner is really good with text message and respond very quickly. Great place to stay with lots of space. Towels, sheets and kitchen are fully equipped.

Owner's Response: Joyce and her friends are the epitome of considerate, responsible guests. They treat our home as their own, and communicate anything they think we should know as homeowners. I cannot speak highly enough of this group of young professionals. They are welcome in my home anytime!

Repeat Customer for Coachella

  • 5 of 5

Leslie once again delivers with an amazing stay at her lovely home.

This was our second year staying at Leslie's for Coachella Weekend 1, and just like last year, her home was a safe haven from the pre- and post- Coachella mayhem.

The house now has solar heat to heat up the pool and spa! Not only cost effective but also environmentally friendly! :) When we weren't in the hot hot Coachella heat, we definitely spent most of our time hanging out in the pool and hot tub.

It is always a pleasure speaking to Leslie before, during, and after our stay, and if my group decides to three peat next year, we hope to stay at Leslie's home again!

Thank you yet again to Leslie and Steve for trusting my group with your wonderful home!

Owner's Response: Nim and his friends are always welcome as our guests. We are so pleased that they decided to return this year and look forward to hosting them whenever they are in the area. Our neighbors comment on how responsible and courteous Nim and his friends are while staying in our home during Coachella:)

Better than I imagined it would be

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from renting this property and I am compelled to review it as fantastic. The pictures do not convey just how beautiful and large this house really is, until you are there in person. My wife and I were in the palm springs area with another couple and we all were impressed with the decor and amenities. There was great communication with the owner on all the details we needed and the house was immaculate when we arrived. The location was close enough to all attractions, yet secluded and private away from traffic.

The property comes with a book of instructions for the property as well as listings and maps for local attractions that were helpful for our day trip to Los Angeles. We were also only a 5 minute drive to the Humana Challenge Golf tournament. Although we didn't use them, there are hiking trails 100 yards from your front door up into the mountains. We enjoyed use of the BBQ. The patio received the morning sun and the pool area the afternoon sun. The biggest thing that I can note here is that this place feels more like a home that you are renting and not just someone's investment. The quality of the furnishings and decorations are all extremely thoughtful and not just bare bones as are some rentals are.

I highly recommend this property for families or groups who are looking for something more that a standard hotel or condo.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that our home exceeded your expectations! We love the location and the comfort and layout of our home, too. There is nothing like having the french doors open on each end of the house and enjoying the incredible La Quinta weather. You are welcome back to enjoy our home any time:)

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Leslie and Steve allowed my group of 8 young professionals to stay at their beautiful home during Coachella 2014 Weekend 2.

Everything listed on the description was accurate and more than my expectation. Photos were accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. But it is actually much nicer and bigger than images.

The property was very clean and well maintained. Everything was labeled and well organized. Leslie provided detail information 7 days prior to our arrival, so we knew what to pack for our trip. There is a book also available at the house that provided all the local places to visit, manual and phone numbers to access all equipments and amenities of the house. Wifi was available and very fast for us to do our work. TV in every room has option for movie rental and Xbox also available. Surround sound system for the house worked well for us music enthusiast.

The master bedroom felt like you just checked in to the Four Season Hotel. The master bath has a jet bath tub. Ceiling fans kept the house cool all day and french doors open to the backyard for morning breakfast. The other two rooms were huge and large walk in closet for every room. Hall way had skylights and high ceilings felt very roomy.

Location for the house was perfect for us to avoid busy traffic from Coachella. We were able to use the back street and avoid traffic.

Neighbors was very sweet, they wrote us a note to welcome us and inform us parking situation during their yard work. There are plenty of parking on the street but Leslie also allow us to park 1 car in her garage and driveway fits 3 cars as well.

The best part of the house is every piece of the furniture and art work were carefully selected by Leslie and few stories for few of the pieces were shared with us. Which was very interesting to our group as few of us are artists. That is something you will never get from a hotel. The pool and spa was private and well maintain. You don't really need to heat up the pool or the spa, the sun kept the water warm through out the night.

Overall, you will not be disappointed once you arrive. I would love to stay there again!

Thank you Leslie and Steve for showing us around and share your beautiful home. Cannot wait for next year!
