About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

No neighbors - or busy street noise - behind this distinctive desert home. Just endless and surreal views of the Santa Rosa and Coral Mountains. And with a picturesque park next door, your next Santa Barbara style vacation home sits on the best lot in the secluded, gated community of Carmela... known as 'the hidden gem' of La Quinta.

You'll also feel like you, your family, your significant other and/or your guests are the only ones in town… except for an occasional roadrunner or humming bird.

At our Carmela vacation home, you'll soon be hidden in 2,900 square feet of freshly custom painted walls, beautiful porcelain tile floors, newly installed lush bedroom carpeting, 400 thread count Egyptian sateen sheets, a kitchen complete with a butler's prep kitchen and wet bar, a TV room with a large leather sectional sofa for true laziness, a comfortable conversation - or cocktail - area with both leather and upholstered seating in front of an intimate fireplace, indoor and outdoor dining options, and a three-car garage.

You'll be dazzled by a brand new courtyard with tumbled pavers and a sparkling blue glass fire pit to gaze at from an outdoor circular sofa, and a breathtaking south-facing (sun, sun, sun!) yard oasis featuring brand new stone pavers and desert landscaping, with lounge chairs around our pebble-tec in ground pool and hot tub, both with new glass tile surrounds.

You're already starting to relax just thinking about what awaits you...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We love travel. We love the sun. And we love how easily and quickly we detach from work and the world as soon as we get to Carmela. It just happens.

Why the Owner Chose Carmela, La Quinta, CA, USA:
This like-new home was our dream come true. And how it came to be is a little like serendipity. With the right amount of TLC (new front and rear landscaping, new interior and exterior paint, and new hard scape and appointments in the courtyard and pool deck), we made it our own. A quality, no-expense-spared getaway experience was our goal, because we plan to enjoy it forever. And since we love entertaining, we made sure we chose the right floor plan that is spacious, open and integrated while bedroom wings provide privacy. We furnished it comfortably and tastefully, created several indoor and outdoor opportunities to relax (fire pit lounge in courtyard, back yard dining under the loggia to catch the morning sun on the mountains with coffee, tea or iPad news) and above all have views to die for and a sunny back yard all year round. And with a quiet, gated community like Carmela, which borders the prestigious Madison Club, you just can't go wrong.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A park on one side, the best neighbors on the other side, and no one behind you make for the best combination of privacy and soaking in spectacular views of an amazing backdrop of mountains and greenery. No power lines above the yard. No backing up to a thoroughfare. You can enjoy the silence or relax to your favorite music playing through outdoor speakers… all while feeling like you're the only one in the desert amongst a palm tree, cactus, fruit tree and succulent paradise. And when you choose a vacation home in the valley, you want a south facing yard to maximize time in the sun and pool, and of course views.
