About Joe Hickman

Celebrating over 30 years living in Asia! (sounds like a store motto or something...)

Joe continues to travel Asia Pacific for his job. When not on the road he enjoys working on his website, fooling around with his camera especially when on holiday in countries like Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand etc. He dragged his family halfway round the world to Malaysia on what was supposed to be a 2-year contract... 2 turned to 4 years, 4 to 8 years and so on. He has resided in Singapore for 22 years now and thinks of it as home. In 2012 he bought a vacation home in the desert and plans on retiring there sometime in the future.

Joe Hickman purchased this house in 2012

Why Joe Hickman chose La Quinta

Love the desert lifestyle! Rancho La Quinta is a great impeccably maintained, location is fantastic and have met some really great people.

What makes this house unique

Rancho La Quinta is beautifully landscaped year round and the golf course is perfectly manicured. Huge windows look out over the pool, golf course and mountains with spectacular sunsets.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven lovely weeks in Joe’s wonderful home. Everything about the house and neighborhood was top notch! Thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor living space and the interior was comfortable and very well equipped. We felt completely at home, neighbors were friendly and we hope to return again in the near future!

Luxe home at Rancho La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

Draft Review

A friend and I were fortunate enough to holiday at Casa Gweilo, on Vista Calico at Rancho La Quinta.

Would we stay here again? Absolutely! We can’t recommend this place highly enough, and we have seen other homes within this community and other gated complexes in La Quinta. For us Casa Gweilo wins hands down.

If you are reading this, you already appreciate the many benefits of this community, from the Cantina bistro near the Gynnasium, Racket Club and large swimming pool area, through to the beautiful grounds and golf course. We found our home to be very luxurious with the latest top-grade appliances in the easy-to-clean kitchen. Everything was of the highest quality, including the Weber barbecue, very large screen Sony television with excellent sound, and extremely comfortable furniture. We felt welcomed by the many thoughtful touches in each of the three bedrooms with beautiful ensuites and walk-inrobes. Everything had been carefully planned; from the toiletries left for our use, to quality hangers for all of our garments. Not to mention mention excellent quality bedding and towels.

Absolutely stunning! The house is fabulous and Rancho La Quinta a stunning ‘Resort’ experience

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best kept gated communities I have ever experienced. The house we stayed in is immaculate with absolutely everything you need. It is spacious , well decorated three large bedrooms with ensuites and large robes. The kitchen is fit for any cook with everything you need and plenty of crockery and cutlery. Lounge dining is very spacious, comfortable and well decorated. It is exactly the right aspect with a good sized pool in its own private oasis with bbq and large garden surrounds with plenty of area for sun and shade all day long. It is a short walk to the racquet club and Cantina. I could not recommend highly enough! Loved it and sad to leave ...

Definitely not your average "rental" property--much much better!!!

  • 5 of 5

For the past several years we have spent the four winter months in this home overlooking the golf course, We would be there again this winter if not for my husband's health. The owner has make this home into an oasis for either quiet time at home, for entertaining around the fire pit, or splashing in the pool with the grandkids. The house is wonderfully appointed with new appliances, new family room furniture, new TV and media equipment and much more. It is obvious that the owner enjoys and spends time in his home when he can and plans to return to this house in the future. This is not your basIc rental property. We felt like it was our personal home away from home!!!!
