About Wendy Ackerman

My brother and I bought this as a vacation home and spent the last three years remodeling and landscaping it. We lived in Palm Springs 30 years ago and loved the area, wanting to be close to golf and tennis. Now that we are in our 60's , this is the perfect spot.

Wendy Ackerman purchased this House in 2010

Why Wendy Ackerman chose La Quinta Cove

Terry liked the Cove and looked at double lots for several years before finding the perfect spot for his vision. The house was gutted down to the studs and required owners willing to create it anew. We wanted to recreate the style and charm of the original Casita but with all the modern conveniences.

What makes this House unique

Originally built in the hay day of the LaQuinta hotel, we wanted to capture that same feeling. We hired Steve Nieto, the architect that designed Old Town and he brought it all together. It has lots of open area and arched doorways, wrought iron work and Spanish tile. The Mission style door is my favorite thing. I painted the mural on the wall facing the garage, to bring some color into the large blank wall.

The pool and spa area is like a private club. Spent most of our time there. My sister in law from New Hampshire spent most of her time by the pool. No need to go anywhere else. Had s’mores after a great Bbq

                                                                  The house has everything especially Avery well equipped kitchen. Thanks

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Agave! The location is great - near hikes and parks and fairly close to Palm Springs, the zoo, tennis, and the airport. The outdoor living is amazing with the pool, hot tub, trees, plants and fire pit. The inside is pleasant and the beds are comfortable too! Thanks for a wonderful week in the warmth and sunshine!

                                                                  The perfect place!

                                                                  Mary J.Santa Monica

                                                                  I almost don't want to review this place because I would like to keep it to myself... we booked it at the last minute and Wendy made sure that everything was ready for us. We were looking for privacy, quiet and a home away from home. This was perfect. There is great energy on this property and you literally don't have to bring anything other than your personal belongings as Wendy has everything fully stocked. This included a great gift basket stocked with snacks and wine!!! Wendy followed up with us during our stay to make sure everything was in order and even arranged for the pool to be cleaned after the next day after the sand storm.

                                                                  We cooked and we ate out , good restaurants nearby. We really enjoyed the pool, the jacuzzi and the fire pit . The beds are very comfortable and the home is big enough for everyone to have their own space if needed. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks for the kind words. I wish all my guests were as responsible as you. I can't believe you replaced my vodka You are welcome any time! I have one guest that's been coming for years and his kids wanted to have their birthday party here. Too funny....I just bought long grilling sticks so people can make semores over the fire pit. Maybe next time I'll get to meet you!

                                                                  Great private outdoor space for family and entertaining.

                                                                  House is perfect for entertaining outside. Very private enclosed space. Nice pool/spa and great fire pit area. You could bring a dog and feel secure about its safety. There are two bedrooms and two nicely renovated full baths inside the house and additional bedroom and full bath in separate entrance in back. I prepared a couple large dinners and found all the pots, pans and serving dishes I needed in the well stocked kitchen. Owner has a manager nearby to resolve any questions and needs that come up with the property during your stay.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I just had a guest bring back a large serving bowl they had borrowed during their stay, so I guess that is a testament to my having enough kitchen supplies to cover any need.

                                                                  It's especially nice this week...the fruit trees are blooming and it smells so sweet. The hummingbirds are even forsaking their feeders to enjoy the blossoms on my trees.

                                                                  It's tennis week here and lots of visitors in town.

                                                                  Comfortable, beautiful and private

                                                                  Helen H.

                                                                  Very nice house, everything worked and we all loved the way the house is decorated. Lots of privacy with the surrounding walls and lots of space around the house. The ambiance is wonderful.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

The home is exceptional in every way with so many personal touches. One of the best stocked homes we have ever rented. We appreciated the live green plants throughout the home and really loved watching and listening to the hummingbirds while sitting on the front patio. It is a very comfortable and cozy home and we look forward to our next stay.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
