Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I wanted a quiet, relaxing house for our anniversary and Casa Elle Cue delivered! Beautiful home, very clean and quiet. Both Natalie and Sally were very responsive to all our questions; Sally was also helpful with restaurant and spa recommendations. Great hiking trails right out the door. Highly recommend!

Sally, we cannot thank you enough for the recent stay at your beautiful La Quinta Cove home. From the moment I contacted you, until this review the experience was exceptional. We often stay at VRBO homes during our vacations and this was one of the best. The location is so peaceful and the beauty is unmatched! The home is so comfortable and the pool was fantastic! I felt like I was on my own private get away as the location of the home is surrounded by nature and Gods beauty! We will be back again. Thank you for being so accommodating to a last minute get away and the flexibility with check in and out times. You went above and beyond with service and coming from someone in business development and sales my expectations are high!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sally's place for the location, the amenities, and the general ambiance of the property. The house is conveniently located right next to hiking trails and is about 2.5 miles away from great restaurants. The house is stocked with everything one could need to cook/entertain. Sally was super communicative and helpful whenever we had questions. Honestly, this was the best desert getaway we've had by far. Thanks for everything!!!
