About Stuart Marquette

I make artificial limbs and my wife is a court reporter. We love the desert and our little hide away. We are very conscious of your needs when traveling.

Stuart Marquette purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Stuart Marquette chose California Desert

It is on the Eighth Hole, close to the guard gate. You do not have to drive down long streets. Pool is real close and almost your own private pool.

What makes this townhome unique

It is luxury. Amenities you don't see often. Coffee in the pantry. Very comfortable to live in. electronic locks. Top of the line TV's and WiFi. Directv and TWC. Game consoles in two rooms

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was great. We enjoyed staying at your home. Gate passes were ready when we got there. It was nice to come back to a quiet home at the end of the day. If we get the chance to attend Coachella again or visit the area we would definitely stay at your home again. Thanks again for everything

No need to prepare...

  • 5 of 5

Because everything you need is in this great golf condo. Perfect for golfers. Really impressed by all that is in the kitchen. Every tool, utensil, pot or pan.

Good wi-fi, TV, AC. A perfect place.

We enjoyed our stay but would make some suggestions to improve

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the PGA West area, the fun Tiki golf cart, pools, etc. The condo itself could be improved by removing the personal items that are in all drawers, shelves, etc. There was very little room to place our own items i.e. bathroom, bedrooms etc. We felt like we were in a strangers own home with all the personal toiletries, food items, etc. It made it feel unclean ( which it is when you have all those half used toiletries in all draws, shelves, etc.) and like we were constantly shoving things around so we could walk around our luggage since there was little space to unpack our items. Half used food was left in the refrig, too. It made it feel like the owners just left as we entered in..... So that is what I have to suggest - for what it is worth.

Owner's Response: Very Interesting to us, these people stayed two nights. We have never received anything but compliments for the extra items we provide at Desert Cove. We strive to provide a home environment with all the essentials and then a lot that are not. We do not try and provide a sterile hotel environment. We do leave food in the pantry and a cold beer for the traveler that gets there late or is just too tired to travel to the store. The dressers in both bedrooms are completely empty, so not sure what "walking around our luggage" means. My wife does leave a hair dryer and a brush for those who forget theirs, we even leave single use toothbrushes for those who forget theirs. We will review our add so as to not mislead anyone about Desert Cove. We are trying to be thoughtful of you, not clutter our home.

No mountain view at all.....

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed there for the month of February,, 2017. Stuart had more than enough kitchen supplies, laundry supplies, linen supplies everything was stocked very well.

However, the reason we are giving him a four star is for two reasons. One the front patio needs a table with four chairs to sit and eat on. There was no where to sit in the front. The other reason not Stuart's fault the back view was of the course and not the mountains. We love the view of the mountains and if you did not leave the complex you did not see the mountains. Other than that our stay there on the PGA course was beautiful.

Owner's Response: Yes we are very sorry about the chairs in the front. One minute they were fine, the next they were ruined. They are being replaced as I type this. There are stools at the tiki bar..... I eat there most of the time!! lol. Thank you for your comments.

Home Away from Home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this past weekend. It is a beautiful 2 bedroom home fully furnished with all your needs. It sits on an amazing golf course so we had breakfast on the patio to enjoy the view and watch the golfers make their way around the course. I love how secure the facility and we were able to park our car in the garage out of the heat. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the things you'd need to cook up (or grill) a family meal (dining table seats 5) and there is a grocery store only 2.5 miles up the street. The owners have a 'tiki' golf cart that we test drove to take in the beautiful grounds and the pool is about 10 feet away. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Thanks again!!

Life is great at Desert Cove!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week relaxing at Desert Cove at PGA West in La Quinta. Stuart's condo was equipped with everything we needed to feel right at home. We enjoyed morning walks around the neighborhood, fresh lemonade made from the lemons on the trees right outside the door and gorgeous weather lazing by one of the many quiet pools. Desert Cove was perfect for a spring getaway and we will definitely be back!

Perfect for our situation!

  • 5 of 5

This place was EXACTLY as advertised and worked out perfectly for us. We had 3 guys and the unit had a King and two twin beds so sleeping arrangements were good. The two twin beds CAN be put together to make a queen size if two couples are staying there. Furnishings were top notch and TV's were fantastic. We used the Tiki Golf Cart (WITH BLENDER!) and were the talk of the golf tournament we were in PGA WEST for.

As far as the owner, this is my fist time renting a condo on-line and I expected a bunch of "Don't do this" or "Don't do that" however it was the exact opposite, Stuart was VERY accomodating and wanted to make sure our stay was great. He did give me a little attitude when I sent him a picture of us at the Tiki Golf Cart and he noticed the blender was empty, apparently it is bad etiquette to have an empty blender on a golf cart! :)

Pool area was not very crowded so if you want a "Party by the pool" this probably isnt the place (unless you bring your own party). But it is great for a golf getaway.

The TIKI golf cart is always a hit at Desert Cove. Where do you rent and have a golf cart available to you. The cart is available for use by all guests and is complete with a blender. Wonderful for driving around for cocktail hour and enjoying the sights of PGA West. There are 54 pools at PGA West for you to enjoy, the nearest one is 40 yards away and very seldom is anyone there. At the house, there are a full array of video games in both the main room and the Golf bedroom. All TVs are new 1080p flatscreens. In the immediate area is some of the most famous fun, fair, and difficult Golf courses in the world. Besides the three Public Courses at PGA West, the is the wonderful and challenging Silverrock Course around the corner. And if you just want a cool par-3 to slap it around with a beer, the Indio Municipal course is perfect and always inexpensive. Tennis is also available, fishing around the corner at the reserve and lots of bike trails. And then there is the food, restaurants for all tastes, great pubs, sports bars and fine dining of most cuisines within a 5 minute drive. A really nice casino is within 20 minutes.
