Property description


First as owners of this wonderful property we would like to give you some updates:

*If you are interested in renting our home, please contact us through the “Book IT” area on the top right of this page. We will write back to you very shortly (usually in 2-3 hours, often quicker). If the rates mentioned in the email are acceptable to you, we will send you a request for payment. You will then have the ability to pay with a credit card through the VRBO web site. If you would like to instead pay for the rental by check (free) or bank wire (~$20-$30), please let us know and your total charges will be reduced by 8%-10%.

*The rate of $449 shown on VRBO is an indicative average rate. Usually the rates go from $299 for May to December, to the $600s for the busiest festival weekends. We are very flexible to offer lower rates for stays longer than 7 days. VRBO unfortunately does not allow owners to give their guests the best rates available by this instant booking, so we just put a flat $449. VRBO only let’s pricing be determined based off of daily, weekly and monthly rates. The issue is that if you stay 29 days, we will give you the monthly rate. If you stay 3 weeks, we will give you a great rate, not 3 times the weekly rate. We also give better rates to repeat clients, and VBRO does not allow this through their instant booking. This is why the rate shown is a flat $449, but in reality may be higher or lower.

*In February 2015, VRBO started to force guests to pay a “service fee” calculated on a sliding scale of 4% to 9% of the rental amount. You as the traveler basically get nothing for this fee (more than you received for free before it was charged). But VRBO saw Airbnb charging a 6%-12% fee, so Airbnb jumped on the guest service fee bandwagon. This service fee that VRBO charges is in addition to the $349 that we as Owners pay VRBO annually, and the 2.9% credit card fee that VRBO’s credit card payment processor charges us as homeowners. If you would like to pay by check, we are happy to waive the service fee and reduce the rental charge by 2.9%, for a total savings of about 10%.

Improvement Updates:
*Summer 2016 - New queen mattresses in the two bed room. New bedding for all beds
*Summer 2015: The entire Villa was painted to match the La Quinta resort luxury villas, in a lovely authentic hacienda finish. The Mexican paver floors were all polished and sealed. The window coverings upstairs were all replaced. And as always all of the bedding was completely replaced new. The Villa has a wonderful refreshed feel!


You’ll feel like you are staying in a private Villa. We don't have old sheets, towels, kitchenware, appliances or electronics. Unlike the resort-affiliated rentals, we buy new bedding and towels every season. After every guest, we thoroughly wash all sheets and duvet covers. This is not a second hand home with trinkets that did not look good in our first home. This is a relaxing and well-appointed home with that has been kept updated and fully functional.

This luxury Villa is very special and rare, as it has been furnished for and occupied by its owners, and not as a rental. You will find the furniture, bedding, linens, electronics, appliances coffee makers and even high speed Wi-Fi to all be of the highest standards, and thoughtfully chosen for a relaxing vacation experience. If you’re looking for a big step up from the typical rental pool or hotel condo, then this is the place.

The Villa includes 2 bedrooms downstairs, both with en-suite bathrooms. The master room has a king-size bed, and the second room has 2 queen-size beds. Upstairs is the well equipped kitchen (with All-Clad pots & pans), living room, powder room and office area, as well as a double-size roll away bed for additional guests. Total square footage is circa 1,600, plus 2 large decks and a garage.

Just after your full payment (usually 45 days prior to arrival at the Villa), you will receive an email with complete instructions on how to gain access to the Villa, and everything you may like to know about the home and surrounding area. You will also get a link to a video of a walk around in the Villa so you know where and how everything works, before you arrive! During your stay the, the Owners will be available at any time 24/7 via phone or email, in case you need anything explained or resolved.

Upon your arrival you will find the Villa in immaculate condition. If you would like additional cleaning during your stay, please let us know at what times and frequency, and we will have it arranged at very reasonable rates.

There are two upstairs deck areas, which have recently been completely renovated. The views from them are amazing, as the Villa is surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains. Enjoy a glass of wine at sunset while the BBQ gets underway.

This villa is located on the grounds of the La Quinta Resort. From the front door of the Villa it’s a very short 2-3 minute walk to the restaurants, cafes, shops, entertainment, and services of the Resort. Specifically - the front desk reception of the La Quinta Resort is 1,400 feet from the Villa.

There are two private pools for the exclusive use of Villa association residents. Both pools have been recently renovated. Golf, tennis, hiking, biking, polo matches, art shows, local theater, galleries, shopping and an incredible variety of gourmet dining are all part of the experience in La Quinta.

There are few things more enjoyable than morning walks around the nearby golf course and resort. If you enjoy manicured gardens, colorful flowers everywhere, streams and fountains, you’ll be at home. In the evening there is live music outside at the resort, a piano bar at Morgan's restaurant, and happy hours galore.

If you like professional Tennis, this Villa is also definitely for you. During the recent BNP Paribas Open, the courts directly in front of the villa have been used as the practice courts for the world’s finest. Don’t worry about fighting to get a peak of the stars; you can see them from the deck. And if you are going to Coachella or Stagecoach, it’s very close as well.

Unlike other rentals in the area, we do not offer nightly stays, so you won’t be just another guest coming through, and you won’t feel like you’re staying in a hotel.

The La Quinta Resort's many Golf courses, restaurants, shops cafes, Spa, live music & entertainment, and beautifully manicured common areas of the La Quinta Resort are available to renters of the Villa, along with 2 recently remolded private pools located next to and exclusively for the Villa HOA. Please note that the gym, main pool, and tennis facilities of the Resort are however not available with the Villa rental. If you are interested in using fitness facilities during your stay, the City of La Quinta has a modern facility available nearby for $5 per day. If you are interested to play tennis during your stay, Indian Wells Tennis Gardens (home of the BNP tennis tournament) is also located a short drive from the Villa, and is open to the public for a small daily fee.

We hope you can enjoy your next vacation in the sun at our amazing Villa.
