About Peter McPherson

My husband and I live in Northern California with our two children.

We discovered our love for the desert years ago on a weekend getaway and kept coming back every year until we finally purchased our vacation home.

We're huge tennis fans and enjoy all the recreational activities and scenery the desert has to offer.Years from now, we hope to spend more time in the desert upon retirement.

Why Peter McPherson chose La Quinta

We chose La Quinta for our vacation home because of its perfect resort location. Our gated community is conveniently located to everything we could possibly need. Most daily destinations are within walking or biking distance. The neighbors and surrounding community are very friendly, quiet and pleasant.

The weather is phenomenal! Every day is a sunny day!

What makes this house unique

The activities we enjoy most staying at our vacation house are:

Dining outside on our back yard patio which perfectly frames an incredible South facing view of both the mountains and golf course.

Barbequing and Lounging on our very private pool deck.

Enjoying the fireworks display put on by the Polo fields both July 4th and New Years Eve!

Dining and Shopping at El Paseo Drive and Old Town La Quinta

Playing tennis at Indian Wells Tennis Garden (Public).

Creating great family memories that will last a lifetime!

The most unique benefit of our home is its Southern exposure, the homes interior is bright all day concluding with incredible sunsets!

Numerous tennis and golf tournaments, and music festivals.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our most recent guest said "This vacation home offered everything and more! We had a delightful time and were sorry we didn't arrange to stay longer. We look forward to visiting again soon."

“We can’t recommend this house enough! The location was perfect, the views were beautiful, the house and all the decor was in fantastic shape. We greatly appreciated the pool in the desert heat and having a cool house to retreat to after a day of exploring.The whole experience was so enjoyable. We felt right at home. Will definitely be back!”

Dreamy Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we felt at ease and well cared for in this gorgeous home. Plenty of the usual amenities you would hope to have in a rental and then some. The master bathroom is an absolute dream and the bedrooms are all spacious and relaxing. The common areas are open and inviting, a perfect spot to unwind after a day in the sun. The pool was the highlight of our stay. You can't beat a private pool with a view! This is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a spacious, relaxing, comfortable place to escape. Simply magical!

We enjoyed our stay immensely in this beautiful home! We were incredibly comfortable and the views were unbelievable. Every afternoon we relaxed by the inviting pool and watched hummingbirds. To our surprise they were so friendly we were able to get stunning photographs! The location was so very convenient to everything we needed.The home was spotless when we arrived. Your home truly shows pride of ownership.

Looking forward to returning,

Beautiful and inviting home with every amenity we could need. Owners show such attention to detail and comfort.

Great location, near everything-Old Town, Restaurants (Arnold Palmer's & Lavender Bistro- walking distance) Shops, Grocers, Farmers Market, Golf etc...We especially loved dining in the private resort backyard with an Azur blue pool. The beautiful golf course completes the perfect picture.

We must return soon!

Desert Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

Very welcoming and fantastic vacation experience. Mind blowing views and has the largest resort-style backyard in the development (we walked throughout the gated community). Many thoughtful amenities including luxurious spa robes awaited us. Such a tranquil, well decorated and comfortable home. We loved entertaining guests here!

We recommend this property whole heartedly!
