Palmer Residence house description

Very best La Quinta location, with large pool/spa, breath-taking, up-close mountain and golf course views, Blu-Ray DVD, gourmet kitchen, slab granite, rose garden, lemon trees, bikes, and a very short drive to music festival sites and Old Town La Quinta! Bed summary: 2 Kings, 1 Queen, 4 Twin-XL’s, 2 Queen Airbeds. That's the short summary. Now, here are the details...

“The Riviera” is a 4 bedroom, 4 ½ - bath home with a large heated pool and spa that sleeps up to 14 people comfortably in one of the most scenic parts of La Quinta. The location cannot be beat, with majestic mountain and golf course views and a very short driving distance to the music festival sites and Old Town La Quinta shops and restaurants.

This super clean luxury home is loaded with amenities. The attractive pool and spa area has chaise lounge chairs and many other outdoor chairs and tables for plenty of seating and lounging comfort. Inside are marble floors, granite counters, soaring ceilings and lots of windows.

There are 4 total bedroom suites: The Master bedroom suite has its own “instant start” gas fireplace, a private bath area with dual sinks and vanity, an oversize tiled shower & a separate tub with tile surround. The large glass slider door takes you direct to the courtyard patio rose garden. The Master Bedroom has a King bed plus an XL (extra-length) Twin.

The 2nd bedroom suite has 2 XL Twins, an available PC computer with super-fast Internet access, and a private bath area with a good sized shower and granite counters. Bedroom door has its own glass slider door out to the rear yard pool and spa area.

The 3rd bedroom suite has a King bed, HDTV, private bath with a tub/shower combination and granite counters, and shares a cool private courtyard with bedroom suite #4.

Bedroom 4 Suite is the private courtyard entrance Casita, and has a Queen bed plus an XL Twin, an HDTV and private bath with granite counters and a tub/shower combination.

All beds are plush pillow-top models. Each bedroom has a phone, clock radio and other bedroom necessities. There are two deluxe Queen raised-height Aero-beds available at the home for extra guests.

The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has all the appliances, pots, pans, spices, cookware and utensils you need and expect. There is a toaster, Cuisinart, blender, tea-kettle, dishwasher, disposal, granite counters, gas cook-top, under cabinet lighting, oven with separate warming drawer, and microwave.

You like coffee? Great! After grinding the fresh Starbucks beans we provide in the coffee bean grinder, you can choose how to make it: standard drip electric coffee pot, French Press, or the old-fashioned but still preferred “Melitta-style” single cup pour-over.

The Formal Dining Room seats 6 people at the beautiful marble slab table, and there are bar-stools to seat 4 at the kitchen bar counter. Outdoors, there is additional seating for another 4 people at the back patio dining table.

The Riviera Living Room is a quiet retreat with a magnificent view of the dramatically lit mountains and golf course. Relax in the super-comfortable leather sofa or love-seats in front of the cozy gas fireplace. Pick out a good book or DVD from the in-home library. Play a few tunes on the restored baby-grand piano.

You can also sit back and watch your favourite shows on the wide screen High-definition TV with whole-house DVR, featuring a full package of channels including: Showtime and several premium sports packages with the Tennis Channel and Golf Channel. There is a Blu-Ray DVD player with network connectivity for Netflix, HULU and others.

The Riviera Family Room features another instant-start gas fireplace, comfortable couch and loveseat, and another wide-screen HDTV with access to the DVR. There is a slider from the family room out to the quiet side yard which features a 2nd gas BBQ, additional dining seating and is just steps away from the large heated spa.

The large rear yard features an oversize private and heated pool, a raised spa, palm trees, beautiful flowers, rose bushes and aromatic plants, lemon trees and night-lighting. The BBQ-island has a large stainless BBQ with a wide tile counter top and sink.

The views and scenery out the back of Riviera cannot be over-stated. There are herds of magnificent bighorn sheep that come down off the mountainsides to graze on the golf course fairway. The mountains themselves are lit up at night and their beauty takes your breath away.

During the day sit back under the blue desert sky in one of the lounge chairs by the sparkling pool, or enjoy a meal at the dining table with 4 chairs and umbrella. At night relax in the hot tub or watch the dancing flames around the nearby firepit. A propane patio heater takes any chill off the night air.

The side yard features another table and chairs, more flowers, an herb garden with fresh basil and cilantro, plus another “no-flare-up” gas BBQ.

Too much activity going on in the rear and side yards? Getaway to the quiet inner courtyard and enjoy the rose garden and flowers under the beautiful blue desert sky.

You’ll enjoy and appreciate the near-perfect location of this home: gorgeous mountain and golf course views, steps away from scenic hiking and biking trails, and very close driving distance to nearby shopping and Old Town La Quinta with popular restaurants, Hog’s Breath, Stuft Pizza, Old Town coffee shop, wine bar, art galleries and shops.

Other amenities include 2 Elektra Cruiser-style bikes, Starbucks coffee, free local and national long distance calling, and free super-fast wireless internet. All towels and linens are included, as well as soaps, shampoos and laundry detergents.

The laundry room has a washer and gas dryer, ironing board and iron. For your convenience, a wireless HP “All-in-one” scan/fax/copy printer is on-site. The yard is beautiful and fragrant with a rose garden, herb pots, and plenty of seating and lounge chairs.

This truly one of a kind home is beautifully upgraded and finished with marble, granite & tile work. It sits on a great lot with a yard full of palm trees and flowers, with maximum privacy for outdoor entertaining, dining, lounging and swimming. The dramatic night lighting comes on automatically.

You will always remember your vacation at The Riviera.

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About: We love La Quinta! It's 350 days of sunshine and the tennis and golf capital of the world. We also like...art festivals, Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, Happy Hour at Stuft Pizza, and the smell of citrus blossoms in the air. What's not to like? But enough about us...

                  Why Palmer Residence:
                  Location...location...location! If there was a better location, we'd move! But there isn't. You have to see and experience the jaw-dropping mountain views, framed by blue skies and palm trees and a gorgeous golf course fairway and green...with a herd of bighorn sheep thrown in for good measure! From the time you walk through the double-entry doors, you see the amazing view out the tall windows. Then you walk out to the back yard and expansive patio and pool area and there it all is...right in front of you. You will find it very, very, VERY hard to leave. But you'll have to, so we can come back to our home. You see, we only rent out this amazing home for a couple weeks a year while we're away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  99% of vacation homes in this area promote their mountain views. And it's true...most homes can see the mountains off in the distance, because we're in a valley and the mountains are everywhere. Duh. But, less than 1% of homes have totally unobstructed mountain views, where the majestic mountains rise up right out of your back yard! That is...unique! We are also experienced Vacation Home managers. This very special property is set-up properly, with all the amenities discerning guests expect. Most PGA West homes have slow Time Warner Internet. We paid extra to get lightning fast FIOS Internet, with 75mbps, so you can stream movies and all of your guests can use their laptops and tablets at once.
