Welcome to Casa Mariposa!
This is a charming 2885 sq. ft. Santa Fe style home in Los Estados, an exclusive neighborhood within the world class La Quinta Resort and Club. Los Estados is a small, private community of detached golf course homes. Our home sits on the 17th Fairway of the beautiful Mountain Course. It enjoys the serenity of the golf course view combined with the drama of the magnificent west facing Santa Rosas mountains view. The affect is dazzling! The home has recently been remodeled and redesigned with the finest of furnishings and a designer's eye. The owner is an artist and has filled it with beautiful art, artifacts, books,textiles and bedding from Santa Fe to San Francisco.
The home has 3 en-suite bedrooms each with it's own patio access; and 3 bathrooms. Each bedroom is in it's own separate wing allowing for privacy. The living room and dining room are in one immense 'great room' perfect for entertaining. There is a 55' flat screen TV with new surround sound just professionally installed. The kitchen is big, gorgeous, clean and fully equipped. (you can enjoy a drop-dead view while you are preparing your meals!) The family room, or 'morning room' is attached to the kitchen. It has another comfy seating area and another flat screen TV.
The backyard patio is enormous! There's plenty of room to lay in the sun, enjoy cocktails, entertain dozens of guests, and dine 'al fresco' every night. The view from the patio is nothing short of spectacular! You can't help but become mesmerized by the sheer stunning beauty of the combined golf course and mountain view. It's sensational!
The Los Estados pool is large, well appointed and private. It has an entertainment area, dining facilities, and gas BBQ grill.
The resort itself has 5 restaurants, interesting designer shopping, and outdoor music...all just walking distance away.
Vicki and John are from Northern California and have been coming to the La Quinta Resort for over 25 years. Tennis originally brought them here but it wasn't long before they fell in love with the charm and vibe of the Resort, the landscape,mountains and active lifestyle. Their kids grew up here playing tennis (and now golf too!) They owned a Tennis Villa years ago but sold it to a family member who still lives here. They were waiting for the perfect La Quinta home--it had to be on the golf course, west-facing their beautiful mountains, and it had to have a Santa Fe allure. When this home came on the market it was love at first sight! They have spent most of this year remodeling, updating, and redesigning 'Casa Mariposa'. (Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish. Vicki and John have a special connection with butterflies so they named their house 'home of butterflies'. They believe that butterflies are caretakers and they are abundant in their desert home) The result is a resort-style modernized Santa Fe charm.
Vicki Nelson purchased this house in 2013
Los Estados is a small, very exclusive section of the famous world class La Quinta Resort. The homes are detached and gorgeous architecturally-designed 'Santa Fe' style. The boulevard is wide, the landscaping is lush, and with only 20 homes on the west facing mountain side of the street, we feel lucky to have our home on the golf course and facing the dramatic and inspirational beauty of the mountains. The weather is perfect 9 months a year, and there are so many fun events, tournaments, concerts etc. always going on at the Resort and in the Desert area. The access to sports and outdoor activities is endless, and the Resort's Spa is amazing!
Casa Mariposa is spacious, clean and newly remodeled in a stylish but cozy style. Think: Resort style meets Santa Fe meets Ralph Lauren Home! The owner is an artist and took great joy in designing a warm, attractive ambience filled with quality furnishings. The rooms are all very spacious and inviting. The patio has stunning views looking out directly at the Mountain Course and the Santa Rosa Mountains. You can take hikes behind the house on the trails and see cute bunnies and roadrunners. The flatscreen TV has been upgraded with surround sound. Every en-suite bedroom has it's own access to a patio and is in it's own separate and private wing of the house. Attached to the kitchen is a family room, or morning room, with another comfortable seating area with another flat screen TV.
We had a wonderful stay in this newly remodeled house. Plenty of room for 6. Adorable colorful and cozy furnishings. Fully stocked. Beautiful back yard against the mountains. Quiet and peaceful and a very short walk to the neighboring gorgeous pool. It was just as the photos showed it would be and the owner was easy to talk to and very available for questions. We would come back again and hope to soon:)
