About David & Daisy Vazquez
David and i have been married for over 20 years and and have 3 amazing kids. Since i can remember we have wanted a home in the desert. We live one foot in the suburbs of LA and one foot in the desert. I am an Interior Designer fascinated with mid-century architecture, while my husband has made it his hobby. We collect Josh Agle (better known as "Shag") and Berndt Heidemann art that you'll see scattered throughout the house - both are very "Palm Springs"! We love to cook and entertain - you will see that clearly when you get to the house! It's stocked with everything we need to have an impromptu dinner or pool party.
David & Daisy Vazquez purchased this House in 2014
Why David & Daisy Vazquez chose La Quinta
The whole 1/2 acre property has a Zen serenity vibe that makes people never want to leave - one of our renters loved it so much they purchased a house in our neighborhood before checking out, true story! My husband and i have searched for years for our dream home, even when we were students and didn't have two nickels to rub together we would come out to open houses and dream about our future home in the desert. When we saw this house, with it's open floor plan and it's Rock Hudson movie style pool, we immediately put in an offer and it became ours! We then did a search and found that we had purchased a home in "Point Happy" with a rich history including the DuPonts once owning the land! The house and the area are very special.
What makes this House unique
The house has an amazing vibe that makes you want to sit and sip a drink and listen to Sinatra or some Bossa Nova - perfect for entertaining or a romantic escape. Once in, you feel far from everything yet its just really a short walk from restaurants, markets, and stores. You won't find a better location! Come to Point Happy, you won't regret it!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Not Palm Springs swanky so if your looking for glamour, go to PS. But right up in the mountains. Beautiful. And if you want the classic "Atomic Ranch" house, this isn't it. (Would love to see house more connected to outdoors, but that's a different - or remodeled - house.)
We chose this location because it is in walking distance of the Indian Wells Tennis Center. Unfortunately, the tournament was cancelled early in the coronavirus outbreak. Immediately called the owner about cancellation (2 weeks ahead of planned stay.) He was reluctant to give us refund (which I understand) and told us VRBO was not giving any credit for fees.
Eventually, after school closed, we decided we might as well go there and use the house and pool during the week we had scheduled as now the kids would be able to go for whole week, not just weekend. So, I asked to have pool heated. It was.
Unfortunately, that only lasted a day. Something in pool equipment broke and couldn't be repaired. We were terribly disappointed and lost a lot of pool time.
Home is casual and lacking in a few features but great for kids. Kitchen wasn't as well stocked (with spices) as owner claimed and the organization was a mystery to us, but EVERY appliance under the sun was there!
Overall, the house could have been cleaner/better maintained, but it was a good place for kids.
We enjoyed ourselves, of course, and really did like the location. It was quiet yet a major shopping center is an easy walk away. And are you in the mountains! Did I mention th emountains?
Great family vacation
There were 8 of us who stayed here (4 adults and 4 young kids, aged 5 - 8) and it was ideal. Lots of space, we didn't feel like we were tripping over each other, and it was incredibly well-stocked - in the kitchen, with games and movies, and at the pool. The location was good and quiet despite being fairly close to a busy road - we never heard any traffic. We're looking forward to returning!
Came here for my bachelorette weekend with my girlfriends and sisters and we had the best time ever! If your looking to just lounge and soak up the ☀️ this is a gorgeous home! Really quiet neighborhood with all the shops around the corner!
It was so much fun to just swim and hangout!
Would definitely come back again! 😊
Thank You for opening you phenomenal home for us.
We truly enjoyed it and are looking forward to going back next year!
Many thanks, Denise
