Great place! Will definitely stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

House was quiet, clean, and updated. My boys had a blast in the pool and hot tub. Location is great, as it is a 2-minute drive to Old Town La Quinta and less than 5 miles from the polo fields.

Owner was awesome -- had a few questions which she quickly answered via text. All in all, a great VRBO experience. We would for sure stay there again.

Perfectly kept home

  • 5 of 5

If you have a private home rental in palm desert that isn't performing as you hoped - book a weekend at Gail's home so you know how to offer your clients the best! This is not a resort rental - it's a very nice home in a regular residential neighborhood. It's walking distance to old town La Quinta, but anything else requires a car. As far as we could tell there was zero public transport options.

The home itself, however is perfect! A private pool and hot tub, three bedrooms each with sleep number beds, beautiful and comfy furnishings and a kitchen where you can actually cook! Our group of 5 adults stayed 5 days and ate out exactly zero times due to the well equipped kitchen for cooking , the nice outdoor space including a grill, and the comfort of this great home. Little extras like plenty of towels, pool toys, spices & oil, wine glasses - Gail's was perfect. If you are looking for a quiet private place to relax - you've found your spot! Gail is also a wonderful owner, offering advice and assistance as needed. I'm now looking for another reason to be in palm desert so I can stay here again. Thank you, Gail!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent this past Christmas at Gail's beautiful home. The booking process was effortless and efficient. Gail returns emails right away. The home is spotless, fully stocked with everything you need and Gail has thought of every detail. She even had a Christmas tree set up for us when we arrived. Our kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub and ping pong table. We will definitely be back. Thank you Gail for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful desert retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property from start to finish. The house is in a great location, close to Old La Quinta and a quick drive to tons of restaurants and stores. The neighborhood is very quiet, which is nice if you are in the yard enjoying the pool,spa or outside seating. It's tastefully furnished throughout, each room is really lovely. Oh, I can't forget about the Sleep Comfort beds!The kitchen had everything you need and we especially appreciated the quality appliances and the gas grill outdoors! Just a beautiful home, great area and to top it off the owners were exceptionally responsive! So glad we chose this for our week in the desert.

I have been to this house 4 times now, and as long as its available I won't stay any other place. It is beautiful and perfectly maintained. Gail has made everything so easy to use and follow. The yard and pool are perfect for fun and relaxation. My friends and I had such a great afternoon in the backyard, we decided to pass on even going out to dinner and ordered food in. Can't wait to come back!
