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!

We have stayed many places and have used vrbo quite a few times. This home was one of the 3 best places we ever stayed at. So clean, so comfortable and they had everything you could possibly need. So quiet and beautiful views and right at an awesome trail head and walking or biking path. Thank you Sally, we would most definitely come again.

Private...Peaceful...Perfect!! Part 2

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just returned from having rented this home for a 2nd time. The home is just as spotless and immaculate as it was 2 years ago and it is evident that no expense is spared in keeping everything in top shape. While our children enjoyed spending most of the day in the pool, it was the stillness of the early mornings where the adults found true bliss. Each morning we enjoyed our espressos' sitting around the pool patio table watching the pastel colors tint the magnificent mountains. At sunrise, the quiet pleasure of the desert landscape left us feeling happy and content that carried over throughout the day. Casa LQ is the perfect vacation home to take those needed moments to recharge and step back from life.

Every once in awhile you meet an extraordinary person. Sally, you are one of those people. You serve as a much needed reminder that there are people out there who truly care about their guests. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit your beautiful home again. Like I stated in my previous review, Casa LQ is a desert gem but so are you!

Doesn't get much better than this in La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time we've rented this house out in La Quinta. We enjoyed our stay last summer so much that we came out here again. The house is extremely roomy for 4 people (2 couples), beautifully decorated and includes almost anything you could possibly need for your stay. When you throw in the fact that it has a ridiculously beautiful view of the mountains in the back yard, which you get to look at while you're lounging in the pool, it makes this home even more spectacular. Downtown La Quinta is a short drive as well, so if you don't feel like cooking in the amazing kitchen, you have access to a ton of restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive. On top of all this, there is an awesome hiking trail right next to the house that takes you along the mountains and into the dessert. It's a really great hike if you do it in the early morning (afternoon is too hot in the summer). The owners are absolute sweethearts and it’s obvious they take a lot of pride in this house. Skip the high-end resort and stay here. You won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful house at perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were two families that shared the house for the Memorial Day weekend. The location is excellent next to beautiful trails with no houses on either side. Sally was extremely helpful giving us the information we needed and letting us check out later.

We hope to come back soon.

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel frequently for work, and this is our favorite vacation rental to date. It's very modern and clean while still being cozy. It truly is fully stocked, they even had little soy sauce dishes for when we did sushi take-out. The view is beautiful. You are right by some of the area's most popular trails and they are quite busy early in the morning and just after sunset, but it was never a bother and we still felt like we had privacy. The best part is the pool and spa. Even though this was a work trip for us, we spent a few extra days in the area and most of that time we just relaxed by/in the pool. There is an extra charge to heat the pool, but depending on the time of year you may not need to do that. Our first couple of days there is was 100+ degrees outside and the pool felt amazing (plus they have a solar heater you can roll on & off, we kept it off once we got there and I kind of wish we'd put it back on for the last couple of days when the weather cooled off a bit). If we are ever back in the Palm Desert area we would love to stay here again.

A jewel in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this home! Sally had everything we needed other than groceries when we arrived. The house is furnished beautifully. The views of the Santa Rosa mountains are gorgeous. The location is on the edge of the desert providing privacy and total enjoyment. In addition, La Quinta town center is 3 minutes away by car. As Sally lives close by she was always available to answer questions and offered help whenever we needed it. If we are lucky enough to get back to La Quinta for an extended period we won't think twice about staying here again. Thank you Sally for an unforgettable vacation!
