Location Location Location Setting Next to the 10th TEE of the Nicklaus Private. You're greeted to a spectacular view of our Pebble Tech Salt Water pool and its stone water features, spa, down the 10th fairway and to the distant mountains and groves of tall Washatonian Palm trees bowing to the wind.

Two extra large master suites with their own patios. King size high density foam beds. Both have showers and tubs, built in High Definition LED flat panel TVs, blue ray DVD players and Time Warner DVD recorders and built in theater quality surround sound systems include the Great Room in there as well! All bedding is luxury linen and towels.

Pool and yard details:

The pool is very private and set back from the house and is in full sun

all day except for a few shadows from the palm tree groves. It’s a

private salt water pebble tech pool with separate spa. The pool is about

40 feet + or – long, built 6 years ago. Go to Google maps and take a

look at an aerial view. The address is 79860 Riviera, La Quinta CA, PGA


The interior of our home features Italian plaster finished texture, fresco painted walls, 12 inch crown moldings, 6 inch base with natural stone floors accenting the great room with its glass wall towards the pool, golf course, & mountains views.

Interior: Furnishing is antiques and leather sofas and chairs, six recliners in the main room.

The kitchen is provided with all the needs of the most sophisticated chiefs. Pots, pans, wok, if we don’t have it you don’t need it.

Three of the bedrooms rooms have built in surround sound HD Flat screen TV’s, including both master suites & the main living area, The 4th bedroom is tandem to the 2nd master suite and has twin beds. The other 3 bedrooms are all king size beds.

The east west facing salt water pool and spa frames the rear yard providing stunning view from all parts of the great room. Surrounded by a mature palm groove, situated far enough back from the home so it gets full sun all day long This “Oasis” along with the marble and stone entertainment bar and stainless steel kitchen, pool bath and shower, make for perfect outdoor entertainment and memorable evening meals.

Rear yard Oasis: We are several 100 hundred feet from the Tenth green of the PGA WEST Nicklaus private golf course with a large grass meadow between us and the green. Never have we had a golf ball anywhere near our yard and we are not bothered by the carts or golfers.

There is an unobstructed view down the 10th fairway to the distant mountains as well as a view of the western mountain range. The front view looks down the 11th fairway to distant mountains. As you will see from the aerial we have no houses facing us in the front allowing for extensive street parking. Great if you have guests since there is abundant parking for them.

The neighbor to the west is a single man (senior); on the east side a couple from Austria who usually come for 2 months a year. Given the size of our lot and theirs this provides us a lot of privacy. Our lots are double the size of most lots in the area.

If you have questions or would like to reserve the property, please

call or email me.

                                                                  Brian P.

                                                                  We had an amazing 5 nights. The house was perfect for our group of 13 people. The pool and hot tub got extensive use and the outdoor BBQ area was great. Clay was amazing, he met us when we got there and checked in mid week to make sure everything was going well. I highly recommend this location!

                                                                  Beautiful well cared for home on the Golf Course at PGA West

                                                                  rebecca c.SF Bay Area

                                                                  This is a gorgeous home. It is VERY clean. The owner met us at the door and took me around, showing me the air conditioning systems, TV operations, locks, etc. He really cares and let me know to call him immediately, if we had any problem. We did have a problem with the hot tub after a few days. Called him immediately, after first trying to figure it out ourselves. He was over in 10 minutes and resolved the problem. There were 8 of us women here for a tennis tournament. With so many rooms and beds, it worked out great for us. However, If you are coming down with more than 3 couples, I don't know that this would be the place for you. The little casita is perfect for one couple. Two other Master Bedrooms are awesome and work great for the other two couples. But the other 2 bedrooms (one with twin beds and the other with 2 queens), would work best if the rest of the party were kids or wouldn't care about getting the "not so great" rooms. We used all the beds and everyone was happy with their mattresses. A large living room/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen has everything. Plus, a huge outdoor Wolf BBq with bar/seating. The pool and Jacuzzi were clean. We never used the TV's. I tried our very last night to use the TV in my Master Bedroom, but couldn't figure it out. I know I could have called the owner and he would have helped me, but it wasn't important to me. Be sure to have him actually turn it on when he's giving you the tour. There are TV's in almost every room. I highly recommend this home. It is about 15 to 20 minutes to 111. It's so beautiful and peaceful out here, I would stay again. It's worth the drive.

                                                                  What a great home.

                                                                  Russell Leigh

                                                                  Christine I.

Owner met us at check -in and went through house with us to make sure we knew where everything was and how to operate pool and outdoor BBQ area. The setting is gorgeous, pool was amazing and the grounds are beautifully kept.The house itself was very comfortable and well stocked. If ever I need a vacation rental in this area again, I will absolutely stay here!

                                                                  Your will always be welcome.

                                                                  Carie A.

                                                                  We enjoyed an extended stay of two weeks in this lovely home. Having 4 ensuite bedrooms made it easy for different family groups, and the adjoining twin bedroom was perfect for younger kids. We made great use of the large kitchen most nights and found the open kitchen/living/dining to be perfect for socializing - while the floorplan still allowed for everyone to have their privacy. Clay was great to deal with and took time to make sure we understood the AV and Pool systems. Would definitely stay here again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you. I only regret that we didn't get to meet. I had a very good visit with Eric and kayla. They seemed to be really enjoying the pool and spa.Hope the horse show went well for you.

                                                                  Hope our paths cross in coming years. Clay & Judy
