About The Owner

Hello everyone,

I love renting my condo, which I've been doing since 2008. I'm Director of a non- profit org, producing media to benefit humanity, especially television. I grew up here in the desert,

attending Palm Springs high school, then obtained a B.A.

in Religious Studies from San Diego State University. I love

meeting my guests and helping them to have the best experience on their vacation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose La Quinta

The condo itself is the largest floor plan here and has undergone extensive renovation. It's very comfortable, with

plenty of space and the detached casita is really like a studio apartment, giving lots of privacy. The location is ideal for a quick jaunt to La Quinta Resort within one block and the Dunes clubhouse, golf course and lake, literally seconds away. Lots of guests comment on the location, how they enjoy the quick walk to La Quinta Resort for coffee or breakfast, a wedding or business conference or just to play golf. A pool is also very close, as well as the entrance to Santa Rosa Cove.

What makes this condo unique

The location is ideal

Close to La Quinta Resort about 1-1/2 blocks

Close to Dunes Golf Course 2 condos to right from back.

Close to clubhouse two condos to right from back

Close to entrance, easy to find. Come in at 50th, straight 3 blocks, turn left, 3rd condo on left.

Pool is very close two condos across street out back.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for what we needed. Diane had the place stocked with every utensil and gadget you could need for cooking. There was ample bed space and it easily slept 7. Our only (minor) complaint is the house gets a lot of light in the early morning, so bring eye shades if you want to sleep in.

We love the area and have been coming to Santa Rosa Cove for years.

  • 4 of 5

This house is spacious and is great if you have kids, grandkids coming. However, it has a lot of deferred maintenance. For our four day, wedding hosting experience it was fine. For a longer, adult oriented stay it would not work as well. It is well-stocked with linens, tvs, beds, cleaning supplies, etc. As a VRBO owner myself, I would say the target market is groups of young people coming to town for concerts, tennis tournaments, etc. Diane was very easy to work with and responsive. Net net a good experience.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your review and will see if I can find what you mean by deferred maintenance, since you didn't specify. I have an older couple who have returned for several years and stay for several months.they love it.

Watch out

  • 1 of 5

We booked this in December for March so our families could spend some time together in the sun after the diagnosis of stage 4 colon CA. We changed by one day in February without a problem though it took a long time to get our refund(we had paid in full). 2 weeks before we are to leave I get an E mail that she double booked and we would have to look for someplace else. She also stated we should of got double booking insurance. She also would not give me my money back quickly as asked and stated she had 14 days to get it back. We are to go on vacation is less than 14 days!!. I have filed a formal complaint with VBRO as well.

  • Stayed: March 2016

Owner's Response: This is an unfortunate situation where a guest paid by check causing vrbo not to enter her reservation into the computer and I didn't catch it, a problem I accept full responsibility for not entering myself. However I was able to correct it for the guest within 2 days. I found a condo the same size, costing $200 more per night, with a view of the golf course (an upgraded view) and I was going to personally move a beautiful convertible sofa for her extra guests. So she would have had a far better condo than my place. 2 she told vrbo I never refunded her the one day. I presented evidence I had refunded within The contract and vrbo dropped the complaint. I am very sorry I made an error. I'm human. I rectified it so she came out better than before. That is the best possible outcome. It's too bad future guests will read this review and worry where there is no cause. I approached 2 condos and both would accept payment the day before arrival, so Michele should also have no problem. Strange she has not mentioned an actual problem encountered in finding a new place, just theoretical.
