A PHENOMENAL Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful property for two months. It had everything we needed for a long stay. It has a gorgeous and quiet backyard with a large pool/hot tub, outdoor kitchen/grill, and lots of patio furniture. The home is decorated in a classy but casual Tommy Bahama very well put together. The kitchen was well equipped, with modern appliances. There's a TV in every room (but the bathrooms!). A big plus was the walking trail located along the backyard, which was "dog central." We met a lot of cool people on their daily walks. The owners and rental agent were lovely to work with. You'll LOVE this property...

fabulous la quinta home and yard

  • 5 of 5

we checked in to the home on Mar.1 2016 and found everything in immaculate condition both inside and out. The pool area was well equipped with furniture, pool toys, umbrellas etc. I don't believe I have ever rented a home that was so well equipped and tastefully decorated. the owners of the home have been more than accommodating to us as well. I would have no problems renting this property again as well as recommending this to other people as well. Sincerely Mike & Becky Prins Drayton Valley Alberta Canada

A True Desert Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the end of summer here with my family. The house is immaculate inside and the front and back yards are beautifully landscaped. Salt water pool was great for the kids and there are ample sun bathing lounges and umbrellas. Really appreciated the umbrellas in the pool tanning beds. They made it so you can stay in the pool all day without having to be in the sun the whole time. The gas BBQ was clean and worked flawlessly. Air conditioner works awesome and the house was cool when we arrived! No need to leave the house but if you must there are plenty of nearby attractions. Some we took advantage of include the Indian Canyons, day trip to Joshua Tree, and the Shields Date Farm. We will definitely be returning and can't wait for the next trip!

Heaven in La Quinta!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house! Gated community. Quiet, well-landscaped, clean area. The salt water pool was one of the highlights!!! Lots of pool furniture and umbrellas. Everything was very clean, impeccable, inside and out. Kitchen had all we needed and more! Loved the open floor plan. Master bed was super comfy; had many great nights of sleep. Several grocery stores and restaurants near by. I hope to return very soon!!!

Your very own Amazing Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay where you need nothing but a swimsuit and a bottle of tanning spray, this is the place. This home was amazing. The owners taste in décor, layout, location, all 5 stars!!! They thought of everything. First off the home is decorated so tastefully you immediately feel like you just hit the jackpot when you walk in. Each room so inviting and pulled together with colors and fabrics you can tell careful thought went into every detail. The Master bedroom bed gave me some of the best nights of sleep I ever had. The kitchen has everything you need to produce gourmet meals. The island bar and gas range made you feel like a Culinary Chef ready to offer up any meal that would rival Bobby Flay. The outside salt water pool area is literally off the hook. It actually inspired me to do a few Yoga sessions in the early morning. If you knew me, Yoga is typically not in my vocabulary, but the stone waterfall off the hot tub into the pool made you want to take time to relax and breathe. The tanning beds in the pool are perfect for catching some great sun while staying cool. There was also resort loungers, and an outdoor bar complete with grill and tunes to keep the vibe going. The location was a huge plus. The home is within a gated community with other extraordinary homes all around, with the home itself backing up to a green preserve, meaning more privacy than you could imagine. Expectations of this home will blow away any pre conceived notions you might think you have. I can't say enough about our stay and how comfortable and relaxed we felt throughout. If you have never been to the Palm Springs area, just know La Quinta is a very short drive to Downtown Palm Springs, and after staying at this phenomenal home, I have no desire to stay anywhere else when I visit the Palm Springs area. La Quinta itself is a very "have it all" city. Stores, Restaurants Galore, Beer Bars, you name it, La Quinta has it. By far a top vacation home anytime of the year. It was very hard to want to go home after staying here, which typically does not happen when I vacation, but this home had that effect on me in a very big way. I hope you have the chance to experience Villa Paradiso. I have already looked into booking next years vacation here. Thank you again to the homeowners for sharing such an incredible "home away from home" experience. As Arnold would say..."I'll Be Back"!

Amazing rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this lovely home on two occasions and the experience has been wonderful! The home is beautifully decorated, very clean, and has all the amenities that you would want away from home. The pool is gorgeous with really fun tanning beds with mounted umbrellas, that made the pool really enjoyable in the summer heat. The rooms are perfect and the beds were so comfortable I slept like a baby. The home is a short drive away from many restaurants, stores and attractions. It was hard to leave and come home! We would highly recommend it and will definitely be back!
