About the Property
4 bed., 2 bath with mountains very close. Impossible to forget such beauty!
IMPORTANT: LQ fire codes are firm and it is a fire hazard and illegal to have more occupants than indicated in the listing! Any contract for this vacation house rental must state names of people occupying and anticipated guests!
2015 & Beyond News and Notes: The City of La Quinta prefers drought tolerant desert landscaping especially due to Coachella Valley's drought conditions! We have had to cut back on water usage drastically or get water bill penalties added! Consequently, we have had to remove most lawn areas and some plantings like roses, due to them requiring too much water. Unfortunately, the lemon tree got a disease and it had to be removed this past year, also. The nice shade trees in the front and by the back patio provide respite from the sun and keep the house cooler. The back patio cover is now gone since the trees do a good job. Very new 15 SEER air conditioner on roof top, which also houses the heat pump for the house. When temps reach 110 degrees F. by June, generally, this A/C is fantastically cool in no time!
Conservation is appreciated at this house regarding utility usage. Thank you for considering this property to rent!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

La Quinta Cove is the historical area, which has a vast acreage of conservation land to the west of our house, with walking and hiking trails. We are known as the Golf Capital of the World and the Gem of the desert! La Quinta is host to the La Quinta Arts Festival which is every March. We have many artists in our Cove community. Silver Rock golf course is on Avenue 52, within a mile or so and it is a super nice golf course! We have our city historical museum, located in Old Town, as well as a post office and many shops. The area is very convenient overall and our location is on a quieter street. The historic, famous La Quinta Hotel is within a mile of our house. The Indian Wells Tennis Garden matches are held every year off Highway 111 and Washington, approx. 4 miles to the north of our location, in the month of March. Every winter, from January to March, the Polo Tournaments are enjoyed locally. La Quinta has an abundance of local outdoor art to be seen especially between the Civic Center and the Library, on Calle Tampico. The Thermal airport is not very far away, which makes it convenient for those who want to fly in their own plane versus driving to the area. When traveling on Avenue 52, toward Indio, you can still see the ancient coral formations in the very local mountains. Shield's Date Gardens, in Indio, is not to be missed, as they have the original Moroccan date palms which bear every year! Knott's water park is in Palm Springs, as well as the famous Tramway, with interesting views all year long and a dining area up top at 8,500 ft. In Palm Springs, you may want to visit original Indian Canyons if time allows.

About: We first came to the Coachella Valley in 1984, from the Chicago suburbs and found it interesting back then, although there was absolutely nothing on Highway 111 from Indian Wells to Shield's Date Gardens on the corner of Jefferson and 111. We have been timeshare owners for over 30 years and are well acquainted with what you cannot get for your $$, such as more than 2 bedrooms or select locations! We have owned properties in four states and lived and rented or owned in five, which are all expensive areas. We have lived in La Quinta Cove for 19 years.
Why La Quinta Cove, La Quinta, CA, USA:
The house is located on a quiet street with the mountains so close. The house is very clean and the entire corner lot it sits on meets the city's requirements for desert landscaping using much less water. Beautiful panoramic views of Santa Rosa's. Walking and hiking paths are very close. The immediate area is protected conservation land. There is wildlife to view such as quail, doves, hawks, roadrunners, small geckos, little lizards, many hummingbirds due to abundance of aloe vera planted at the property. Nice house and location! Feels like a small town only up in our Cove with plenty of convenience within 1-4 miles. If needed, the Sun Bus is only 3 blocks away, is convenient and is is a bargain for anyone to use.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very comfortable, rare in the Cove 4 bedrooms, 2 baths clean house, with all new bedding and linens, glasses, dishes, cooking pots and pans, utensils and more. The living room is spacious as well as the kitchen, formal dining room, etc. Brand new microwave and dishwasher installed. New chest freezer just added. Large kitchen has a commercial refrigerator with a stainless steel top which can be used for a buffet or extra prep area. Newer washer and dryer (inside laundry). ALL HDTV's (3 presently) are NEW! We take pride in this house inside and out. House has been lovingly lived in, well cared for, and the owners only use eco-friendly cleaning products due to them being very allergic. Everything is a plus here!
