About the property

3 bdrm, 3 bath -1/3 acre lot, detatched casita - walled, gated, and private

A very unique and special property - this estate is one of a handful of original Spanish Haciendas built in La Quinta during the 1930's.

Upon arrival, guests will be treated to a gated bricked courtyard, and charming plastered villa. Soothing sounds of rustling palm fronds and leaves emanate from towering, majestic palms and bountiful citrus trees, which lushly shade and perfume the grounds, providing immediate respite against the hot desert sun. The estate is walled and gated, making it a safe play haven for pets and children.

The residence boasts a colorful legacy of guests and private events and even served as the host location for the La Quinta Arts Foundation Home Tour. Beautifully maintained and cared for - this property exudes charm and artisan flavor throughout.

The property features a main house and a separate private casita. Within the main house, are two bedrooms with private baths. One bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed and two twin beds, allowing sleeping accommodations for 4, the other bedroom has a queen sized bed for two. The main house also has well appointed kitchen with breakfast bar and dining alcove, not to mention a full sized dining room should one desire a more formal eating arrangement.

The casita has a private bedroom with a queen bed, and a main living area with a queen pull out sofa. The casita has it's own full bath and kitchen. The property allows multi-generational families or couples enjoying a vacation together, to have the rare luxury of preparing meals communally, or cooking privately, keeping harmony with individual preferences and schedules.

Visitors will be equally as pleased with the beautiful salt water pool, complete with Jacuzzi and swim up beach. The surrounding patio provides for many sunbathing options, and also gives those who prefer some shade, the ability to laze the day away in a comfortable hammock, hung amidst the mature orange trees that border the pool area. A grill master's dream awaits in a large outdoor palapa by the pool. The full outdoor kitchen boasts a gas grill, sink, bar counter with seating for six, as well as a huge covered dining area that will easily accommodate 20. Next to the stage is a large gas fire pit, made for roasting marshmallows under the starlight, or for delighting guests with warm ambient firelight while keeping any chill at bay. The lush lawn and tropical flower beds throughout the property lend a tropical oasis feeling in contrast to the surrounding bright, sunny desert.

The minute you enter the house you feel like you are home. The yard and pool are incredible. The owner super responsive to any questions and you could not ask for a better experience. Can't wait to get back there

Authentic, beautiful house with absolutely everything you could ask for and more! :)

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank Todd for being such a wonderful host, and for making communication such a breeze. I booked this house for a group of 9 ladies as we were celebrating my moms bachelorette party. From the moment we arrived, we could not believe how beautiful and detail oriented this house was. Everywhere you look, there is some sort of piece of artwork that is perfectly, yet naturally placed. The house itself could not be more special from the entrance, the sunken couch, the bedrooms, the kitchen, the casita, and more. The backyard is absolutely spectacular and it was where we spent most of our time. The pool is a dream, and the cabana is the perfect place to either drink your morning coffee or your evening margarita. On Saturday afternoon we walked to the La Quinta Resort for lunch, and upon our return to the house everyone said how glad they were to be staying there as it felt like our own secluded space. If you are looking for a getaway with family or friends and appreciate homes with lots of character and style, I could not recommend this property more. Just for reference, the house is above and beyond well equipped, and we had 5 people in the house and 4 people in the casita and everyone felt they had plenty of room. We all slept like babies in the incredibly comfortable beds. Todd-thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my birthday with 10 of my closest friends and enjoyed every bit of our stay. The property is beautiful. Spanish style decor made us feel we were some place else with an embrella in our drink. When we arrived we were greeted with a binder full of instructions to operate the pool/spa, music, grill, even offered to help ourselves to the fruit trees. You name it- it was listed. I DEFIANTLY recommend this property for your next home away from home. I will be booking again.
