Overview

About the property

Home, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 12++) with blow ups

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.

How about a pool party. Located just a few steps from your fully equipped kitchen The expansive decking stand up natural stone, granite top whistle bar, Viking BBQ with oven, duel side burners, pot faucet, outdoor bath and shower. And oh yes the fire pit for enchanting evenings Smores anyone!

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

West.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was great. It had everything we needed. Plenty of room and great location. Very beautiful. The only suggestion I would have is to give a little more detailed instruction on the electronics in the home. That was the general consensus from everyone. Other that everything was great!

Hi Clay, I just wanted to thank you for the use of your home. We all had a great time. Your house and yard were beautiful. I was amazed how comfortable it was with a large group. Do you know where you got your sheets? We stayed in the cabana room off of the front courtyard. I love linens and would love to get a set. Memorial Day 2010 couldn’t have been better.

Great stay! Perfect for 8 golfers!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Perfect for 8 golfers. The pool and yard were great for our group to relax in. Barbecue was also great to cook up meals. Clay was easy to deal with, very accommodating as we ha a couple of special requests that he easily dealt with. Overall, perfect location and we'd come back. 7 actual beds which was great for us.

Beautiful house, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Quinta. The house was beautiful with everything you could possibly need. Heated hot tub and pool were fantastic. The view from the back yard was spectacular. The owner was very nice and even checked on us mid-week to make sure we had everything we needed.
