              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: My partner and I live in Vancouver BC and purchased this home to enjoy a break from the dreary Vancouver winters. We will offer this home to vacationers at times when we are not able to enjoy it ourselves. We are experienced vacation rental owners as we also manage two vacation rentals in our home town so we know the importance of maintaining good communication with guests and an excellent quality of service with our accommodations.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We purchased in La Quinta because it enjoys the gorgeous year-round sunny weather of the Palm Springs desert yet was was in a quiet affluent residential area. Situated in a modern very well kept neighborhood the abundance of golf courses nearby and close proximity of quaint Old Town La Quinta made location of this home perfect.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The private larger than average yard with mountain views was the key feature of this home. The combination of desert landscaping with huge pool and spa plus the additional grassy side garden great for pets or kids sealed the deal in deciding to buy this as our second home.
