The master bedroom offers an inviting King bed and breathtaking views of the sunrise over the Santa Rosa Mountains, which will entice you to linger in bed just a little bit longer. The French doors open to the saltwater pool and spa where one may take a quick dip, or lounge in the sun. The master bath has a granite counter with two sinks and a walk in shower of tumbled travertine marble. The large walk-in closet provides plenty of storage for longer staying guests.

The new bedding is 450 plus count Egyptian cotton sheets, plush blankets, and jacquard comforters.

              Old Town La Quinta

              La Quinta Cove is desert magic, a quiet neighborhood, where the town ends and the desert begins. Within minutes you can be hiking in the beauty of the desert, under the warm sunshine,and taking in beautiful flora and fauna unique to the desert. Old Town La Quinta is just moments away with food and drink, and shopping for all. Golfing is ever where in La Quinta and in Coachella Valley with numerous excellent courses to chose from. Need to pamper yourself, try the fabulous spa at the Waldorf Astoria's La Quinta Resort and Club, only minutes away from the Cove. There is no shortage of other activities to do, such as biking, horseback riding, jeep tours, the theatre, festivals, concerts, day trips to major tourist attractions, like Disneyland, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, etc. Or forget the hustle and bustle and just relax by the saltwater pool and spa, and take in a few rays of sun.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Got sandals? I grew up a desert rat, and I love the rich smells and vibrant colors of the desert. Then there are the quail and the roadrunners who win my heart every time I see them. The desert is a uniquely beautiful place, and there is nothing better than letting one's toes breath in a pair of comfortable sandals in the warm desert sunshine.

              Why the Owner Chose La Quinta Cove:
              My husband and I now live in the Pacific Northwest, another especially beautiful part of the country, but let's face it, an old desert dweller has got to see the sun now and then. We hope you will enjoy and take care of our 'sun' retreat, as much as we do. So, hello La Quinta, hello sandals!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There is nothing more magical to me than 'purple mountain majesty' coupled with the beautiful orange and red sky which predominates the southwestern sky. Casa de la Hermosa Cielo, the House of the Beautiful Sky, aka Casa Hermosa, not only offers an every changing, brilliant and captivating sky, but it also offers the charm of a Santa Fe, and innumerable close by activities to enrich and fill one's days.
