3 BR Santa Fe House 'Casa Luna' Wake up with 'Mountain Views'

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you love golfing, tennis, biking or hiking or just a place to relax, you've come to the right place. La Quinta Cove is a hidden treasure in the Coachella Valley. Nestled right against the Santa Rosa Mountains, you are close to everything, world class golf courses, Silver Rock Resort, which has been a host course for the Bob Hope Classic, to the famous Indian Wells Tennis Gardens which hosts world class tennis players such as Federer and Nadal. Bike along the streets or trails using our 2 bikes that we have purchased for our guests to use.

As you can see in our YOUTUBE VIDEO 'CASA LUNA TAMAKI', our Santa Fe house is our home away from home. We have a new stainless steel fridge which makes ice for any marguerita's that you wish to make so that you can relax in the front by the pool or in the back courtyard both overlooking the Santa Rosa mountain range. If that isn't enough sit in the back courtyard with a cervesa and watch the hummingbirds wizz by trying to guard against any other hummingbirds taking their place on the feeder (they are very territorial). Verizon FIOS has provided us with high speed internet, HD TV and free Telephone service to the US and Canada. Our new washer and dryer will get all your clothes cleaned, so that you can be at your Sunday best when you step out of the house.

The master suite has a cal king bed, flat screen TV, private bath and french doors that overlook the back courtyard.

Bedroom 2 and 3 are both queens and share a Jack and Jill bathroom.

The entire property is enclosed for privacy and is equipped with an alarm system from 'GET ALARMED' for extra security.

If you are not familiar with the La Quinta Cove, then you are truly missing one of the best areas of the valley. We have been searching for years to find a house like this. Close to everything, yet far enough away to feel like you are away from it all!

About Mike Tamaki

We, Mike and Barb, both are avid tennis players and have been coming down to the desert for years. Barb is employed as a real estate agent in Vancouver Canada and decided that this was the year that we would buy so that we could have a place in the desert for our future. We have 3 children and a cat named MEOW!

Mike Tamaki purchased this house in 2011

Why Mike Tamaki chose La Quinta

We chose this property after seeing many in the area because of it's back and front views of the mountains. There is nothing more beautiful and peaceful as waking up in the morning to see the sun cresting over the mountains and sipping on your coffee as the day begins.

The area is quiet, but yet close to everything. SIlver Rock is 10 minutes away and 6 lighted public tennis courts at Fritz Burn Park is located just 5 minutes away. The best restaurant and bar in the Valley 'Palmers', which is owned by Arnold Palmer is also only 5 minutes away located in Old Town La Quinta.

What makes this house unique

It's raining and dark here in Vancouver right now as I sit down and type these words into my computer. That is the reason we bought here in the desert. As avid tennis players and golfers we relish the thought of being able to hit both balls in the hot sun year round (if we could). Also the hiking is world class and our bikes can take you anywhere close by.

Very comfortable

Mike was very helpful and communicative. Nice open layout. This house seems much bigger than it is. Very well stocked pantry. Felt like home. Nice pool and back yard with great views of the mountains that surround this very quiet neighborhood.

We spent 4 weeks at Casa Luna and the experience was very positive. The house was very clean and stocked extremely well. Beds were very comfortable and the large bathrooms very clean. We had some of our family spend some time with us and their feedback was also very positive.Very large house so lots of room for all. Hot tub was used most days which was nice after a day of hiking, golfing or those busy days when the women got shopped out(haha). The pool area was also very nice just to lay back and enjoy the 80 degree weather which we had most days. A lot of time in the evenings was spent relaxing in the back yard, fire pit was great for roasting marshmellos. The house is located in a very quiet area of La Quinta and very private. Total experience was very positive as it was just like being at home.This was our first visit to the area and we will definitely be back in the future. The rental process went very well as Mike was very friendly and quick to get back to us on any questions. Would definitely recommend this rental to anyone planning a stay in La Quinta.

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Luna was an amazing house with all the amenities you can ask for. Even a few things that we had forgotten were there and ready for us to use. The living room and the dining room were extremely comfortable. The bathrooms were very clean and the beds were really comfortable. Since we went in the winter we didn't use the pool but we ended up using the hot tub. The back yard was great, especially the fire pit. Overall Casa Luna was a very relaxing and comfortable house to spend three night in. Communication with the home owner was very friendly and Mike treated us more like a friend.

Owner's Response: Glad that we could make your New Years weekend one that will be remembered for a long time. As I said before we try and have everything there as if it was a place of your own. We've rented places before and the worst thing is not to have a coffee machine for your morning coffee or a roasting pan when you want to make a turkey!

Casa Luna

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this La Quinta home was very relaxing. The owner answered all of our questions and was pleasant to work with. Our deposit was returned within 10 days. The house was clean very well stocked with linens, and all the kitchen items we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the pool and hot tub were a plus. We look forward to going back and recommend this home.
