Beautiful, quiet, sunny, comfortable 'cove cottage'

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the month of February in Skip and Monica's perfect 'cove cottage.' We rented this property primarily because it was in the La Quinta Cove neighborhood, as we are thinking of moving there in the future. It was a wonderful neighborhood, with hiking and biking trails 3 blocks from the house. Old town La Quinta was about a half-mile from the house. Several shopping centers about 3 miles from the house. Restaurants, grocery stores, big box stores, and theaters all conveniently located. The house is very comfortable for 2-6 people, and the pool and spa were just awesome. Skip and Monica met us at the house for check-in making sure we knew where everything was located and how all appliances, spa, etc. worked. They also left us fresh fruit, muffins, and snacks to get our stay off to a wonderful start. The house was well stocked with all supplies, tissues, tp, laundry detergent, body wash, shampoo, etc. Skip was very responsive to all inquires before and during our rental period. I would highly recommend this property, and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again. Thanks Skip and Monica for sharing your wonderful property!

Skip has that rare quality of really wanting to do the best job possible. He has attended to all of the little details that make a stay comfortable. The property is a great design for use, and the neighborhood is nice, secluded. Important to us was the access to recreation. There is a walking trail a couple of blocks away that leads to a trailhead for more hiking and biking. Nice country! Bighorns grazing!

The house was wonderful. Well equipped, very comfortable furnishings, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks and had absolutely no problems. Nice neighborhood, safe and clean. The furnishings are very comfortable inside and out. Love the privacy of the fenced in yard, not to mention the beautiful Mountain View.

The kitchen was the best I’ve experienced, so equipped. The house was supplied with everything you need, from linens to paper towels.

The owner is very accessible if needed.

We will definitely be staying there again while in Palm Springs.

Great House for the Festivals

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my friends have rented this property for stagecoach and we plan to rent it again in the future. We used the BBQ almost everyday. Skip the owner was extremely helpful during the whole experience, from check in to check out and everything in between. The Festivals are located less than 10 minutes away from the house, which is really nice to cut down on rideshare costs. Local grocery store are down the street. We brought a bean bag toss game knowing there was plenty of room to play outside. This house accommodated my friends perfectly and won't be the last!

Owner's Response: James and his group returned to attend the Stagecoach Music Festival and in this business a return guest is as good as gold especially when they treat our house/investment as if it were their own. James and his group were clean and responsible and we look forward for them returning next year. I give them a 5 star rating as guests.

Great place, Great host

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples going to Palm Springs area for the first time and did not know what to expect. Skip, the owner of the house, was very kind to send restaurants, activities, golf courses and other activities to do in the desert area. When we get to the house at a late hour because of our flight, food for the next day breakfast was waiting for us on the kitchen table. It was very appreciated. Skip was always reachable if we had any questions. The house is very well located and in great shape. I recommend it without any doubt.
