Overview

About the property

3-Bedroom/2-Bath Private Pool Home With Boutique Hotel/Upscale Amenities Galore!

Welcome to "Villa Isabella"! CAL-KINGS and TVs with HBO/SHOWTIME/GOLF/TENNIS channels, NETFLIX, and TIVO throughout. AND, did we mention the amenities? Read further to discover.

AND, DOGS ARE WELCOME! We love dogs and know they are family. We require a non-refundable fee of $100. Dogs must be fully potty trained and well behaved :) If you choose to use "instant booking" (which doesn't include pet fees), we'll send a separate payment request to cover this $100 pet fee shortly after your booking. Sorry, but no other animals at this time.

Walk through the front gate, and step immediately into your own PRIVATE villa surrounded by a wall of lush, green landscape and desert-friendly potted plants.

The courtyard is a relaxation and entertainment dream spot with amenities galore: pool (Can be heated to 88 degrees for additional fee of $75/day for months of November-February, $50/day for months of March-April and September-October, and $30/day for May. NOTE: this is the TRUE COST of running a propane pool heater in the desert.); 4 chaise lounges with towels; 3 side tables; 2, vinyl-coated pool floats; assorted pool noodles; 2, 9' umbrellas; 1, 10' cantilevering umbrella; 1, 11' auto tilt umbrella; 2 propane heaters (Fall/Winter/Spring availability at $30/tank requested); fountain; Wonderboom wireless speaker; propane BBQ (at $30/tank requested); misting system; propane fire pit with seating for 4 (Fall, Winter, Spring availability at $30/tank requested); dining set with seating for 6.

For those yoga enthusiasts, we offer yoga mats and blocks (2 sets available for $20/set/stay). We will send a separate payment request shortly after booking to collect these fees.

You'll find the patio outfitted with quality, modern furnishings from Tropitone, Telescope, Treasure Gardens, and Frontgate.

DAYTIME…lounge on a pool float/relax poolside (shade or no shade—YOUR choice) while taking in the vibrant green of the palm trees against the mountainous backdrop and blue sky.

NIGHTTIME…sit alongside the fire pit enjoying a cocktail or glass of wine while taking in a night-preserved view of the stars.

Step INSIDE, and see why this is not your standard Santa Fe style home. While still adorned with authentic Saltillo tile floors, archways, and hand-painted bath sinks, expect the unexpected!

The interior is sunny and bright with light gray walls, 10' ceilings, and 3 French doors. You'll find the interior is outfitted with quality, modern, and bright-colored, Palm-Springs inspired furnishings and decor from Room&Board, Modani, Plummers, Restoration Hardware, Ethan Allen, Crate&Barrel, Kartell, Z Gallerie, The Container Store, Tempur-Pedic, and Pendleton.

About Rick Isabella

We relocated on a full-time basis from Los Angeles, CA to La Quinta, CA. Rick (originally from Long Island, NY) retired from Anheuser-Busch, where he made beer for 33 years. Jenifer (originally from St. Louis, MO) worked in Los Angeles as a professional organizer, personal assistant, sales representative, and office manager. She loves to entertain, so having you as a guest is right up her alley. She'll go out of her way to make your stay as welcoming as possible. Prior to Rick's retirement--and while still living full time in Los Angeles--we loved getting away to our home in La Quinta where we hung out in the sun-filled pool with views of the mountains. We love Palm Springs' mid-century design, so have tried to incorporate bright, fun colors into the home against a soft, light-gray backdrop. We hope you'll love our home.

Rick Isabella purchased this house in 2013

Why Rick Isabella chose La Quinta Cove

It feels like every day's a holiday. We've thoughtfully selected items to make your stay as welcoming and accommodating as possible.

What makes this house unique

1. CAL-KING beds in EVERY bedroom. Few, IF ANY other rental property, can say this.

2. Premium GOLF and TENNIS channels; HBO; SHOWTIME.

3. TV and TIVO (record your shows as you would at home) in ALL 3 bedrooms. Few, IF ANY other rental property, can say this.

4. the selection of small kitchen appliances (including a Vitamix blender) and gadgets--even a pizza stone and peel. Few, IF ANY other rental property, can say this.

5. the layout of the bedrooms (master is on the opposite side of the house from the guest bedrooms; and, even the guest bedrooms don't share a common wall)--lots of privacy!

6. the size of the pool (decent size compared to most Santa Fe homes in the Cove)

7. the location of the pool--gets lots of sun! Who wants a pool in the shade? And, if you do, we have 2, 9' patio umbrellas, as well as a large cantilevering umbrella, so you can shade the pool. Few, IF ANY other rental property, has this many umbrellas.

8. 10-foot ceilings

Absolutely First class all the way!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us had a fantastic stay here for the first part of the Indian Wells BNPPO17 tennis tournament. The attention to detail was amazing and everything we needed was provided! The location was perfect and we enjoyed hiking nearby. I would highly recommend this property for your stay in La Quinta!

Property was as described. Very comfortable home in a great area. Close to hiking trails. We enjoyed a fun evening close by at Old Town La Quinta. Home was comfortably furnished inside and out. Enjoyed the pool and dining both inside and outside. Kitchen and baths well stocked. Preparing meals was convenient. Very walkable neighborhood.

Fun and sun in La Quinta

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who stayed at this wonderful home in March 2016. It was well located, very clean, comfortable, and well furnished with many thoughtful details inside and out. We enjoyed the pool and close access to the tennis courts and hiking trails in the cove. The owners of this property were very responsive and excellent to deal with before, during and after our stay.

No stone left unturned. Unparalleled need anticipation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the 1st weekend of Coachella this year and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The owners were a pleasure to deal with leading up to our stay, always making themselves flexible and available, and things only improved once we arrived. The house was incredibly clean, organized, and much more spacious than what the pictures hint at. Personal touches made us feel at home and an impressively detailed one-stop binder with every resource we could ever ask for made the usually dreaded tasks (cleaning and closing up the house before departure, etc) surprisingly simple and pleasant. Would highly recommend to anyone!!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Stagecoach weekend and the house was perfect for us. We had 2 couples (but 3 couples would have worked just as well). The owners were very easy and friendly to work with. The house is centrally located and very relaxing. There isn't anything that the owners haven't thought of! Would definitely stay there again.
