About Shirley Miles

I moved to La Quinta in 2004, from Orange County, California. I am single, well-traveled and prior to moving here, owned my own interior design and floral business for 20+ years, working with high-end properties and individuals, from Orange County to Carmel and 2 major accounts in Seoul, Korea. I enjoy friends, family and entertaining, as well as movies, music and theater. I love the desert life and the beautiful, peaceful and tranquil surroundings here in La Quinta. There is nothing that can adequately describe the beauty and sense of peace the mountains provide.

Why Shirley Miles chose Deserts

The location is premium for this area - nestled against the mountain, we are protected from winds and experience the most favorable weather conditions. It provides an opportunity to experience fine dining and shopping in local boutiques within a 15 minute walk. The area is surrounded by citrus trees and magnificently landscaped golf courses that provide an amazing view from all angles. Walking in the mornings and evenings affords great exercise and a sense of peace. Close enough to walk to Old Town to visit unique boutiques, shops, restaurants and weekly Farmer's Market. Great coffee shop with homemade goodies while you read the NY Times or local papers. Live music too!

Conveniently located within 6 miles of Coachella Music Festival, Desert Trip festival, Stagecoach Country Western Festival, BNP Paribas Tennis Garden, as well as 2 Polo fields and the HITS Equestrian Annual International Event.

What makes this condo unique

La Quinta is a small community, offering many art shows, farmers markets and outdoor music and entertainment all through the season. Coachella Music Festival and Stage Coach have become very popular and brings travelers from all over the world. The Indian Wells Tennis Garden hosts the world-class matches in March. The social life is very active and there are many fine dining establishments. For those who enjoy world class entertainment, there are 5 casinos in the area and they bring top performers to our area. The McCallum Theater also provides a variety of performances from Broadway musicals/dance to comedians and dramatical performances. There is also a small community theater. There are many outdoor eating areas, coffee shops and wine tasting rooms, most with live entertainment in the evening. For those who enjoy hiking, there are many trails, as well as jeep tours into the mountains. The famous area of Joshua Tree is within a 30-40 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was so nice to have guests visit from the UK. I love booking the music festivals because I meet the most interesting people and locals are amazed at my comments about how respectful the festival guests are to my property. I was pleased you enjoyed the patio and the barbecue! The desert is so beautiful for dining outside. Do come and visit again!

Best in Santa Rosa Cove

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with Shirley two different times while attending a conference at La Quinta Resort. Much better than staying in the resort hotel rooms. You are only a 5 minute walk to the conference center. The courtyard is a great place to spend an afternoon. The kitchen is well stocked. If you like to cook, you will not be disappointed with the kitchen. Hope to return soon!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed at Shirley's villa the first week of coachella and it made our weekend flow really well. Shirley is super responsive and answers questions really fast via email/text or phone. The house has 3 large bedrooms, with one of them being the Casita, a stand alone one bedroom and full bathroom. The courtyard in the middle of the house has beautiful plants and flowers and we had all our meals there. The pool is just across the street and takes less than 2 minutes to walk to. Would definitely recommend staying there!

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

A small group of us stayed in Shirley's lovely place for one of the Coachella weekends. Shirley was very easy and pleasant to deal with right from the beginning - which was great especially as we were booking from the UK. It was such a lovely place to stay in - with a stunning courtyard, lovely big double bedrooms (all three!) and a pool only just across the road. The kitchen was also well stocked and perfect for preparing groups dinners and BBQs. I would unreservedly recommend Shirley as an owner to rent from, and her lovely home as a wonderful place to vacation in.
