About the property

Located at the very top of the Cove at the entrance to the mountain trails

This one of a kind home offers full sun from sunrise to sunset, your back yard is the Santa Rosa National Mountains with over 14,000 Acres and numerous hiking and biking trails. This premier location is at the very top of the Cove, at the entrance to the trails, offering unobstructed panoramic views of mountains and desert. Casa LQ is the highest ranked 5* VRBO home in the La Quinta Cove, ultimate views and incredible night star viewing from the roof top deck.

From the moment you walk through the front gate and enter the private desertscape courtyard you will feel right at home. Casa LQ is beautifully decorated from top to bottom. Be amazed by the mountain views from all the windows. Casa LQ offers an open plan, high ceilings, spacious environment with a gourmet kitchen and top of the line appliances that will work perfectly for that chef at heart.

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, thank you so much for sharing this special place, we really enjoyed our stay.

Early morning sunrise with coyotes in the distance, great hiking trails right outside the front door, well equipped modern home with everything you would ever need, you couldn't pay me enough to say anything bad about this place. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place to unwind, this is it !
