Location was good
This property has a very nice yard and patio, which we enjoyed. The house is large and comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen could benefit from some updating. Internally, there are some steps up and down as you walk around the house which can be somewhat hazardous if one is not paying attention to where they are walking. Amanda, the Property Manager, was very responsive to any concerns and worked to resolve any issues that arose. We liked the fact that the front gate and the carport gate could be locked which provided a sense of security.
Lots and lots of problems
This could be a really nice property if the owners decided to invest some money to fix it up. The location is good; it's a nice corner lot directly across the street from the mountains and walking/biking paths.
From day one of our stay there were numerous problems, the heating system to the home failed, in December the temps here drop into the low 40's, without heat a house this size is to say the least uncomfortable. The property manager dropped off 3 space heater, but they did not do the job, so for the entire 5 day stay nobody was comfortable during the evenings. The power to the home also went off a few times, the property management team responded promptly but it was just another inconvenience we had to endure. I paid extra to have the pool heated for my Grand kids, unfortunately the pool heater and spa heater also didn't work, so no heated pool or spa during the stay. The bathrooms had moldy areas, the exterior sound system didn't work, and there were bugs in the home, the property management people send someone to spray the inside of the home after we complained. My take on this place is that they rent it out for a premium price, if everything was as you would expect, I think it would be fair, however with so many problems this property doesn't measure up. The property management people did refund me the cost of heating the pool and one days rent in an effort to appease me. I appreciate the effort, but felt 2 days refund would of been more in line with the miscues and problems experienced. My suggest is you keep looking for another property and pass on this one.
Charming Home with Great Mountain Views!
We enjoyed our stay over Memorial day weekend. The house was well stocked and the property manager was very attentive and always available if needed. The house is rustic and worked well for a family of 6. The kids loved the POOL and the huge outdoor area. The view of the mountains at sunset was my favorite. Overall, great home for the price!
Great Gate Away!
Great Gate Away!
I didn’t have to go too far to find this place, I had the perfect person booked this astonishing home for my stay.
Located near the mountains and with an awesome view, this home welcomes you the second you enter the property. Although, I arrived while it was raining, the following few days were incredibly splendid. The home was absolutely lovely, clean, and had a lot of extras that you could only identify once you tour the home.
The pool and the Jacuzzi were sparkling and have plenty of sitting areas. If you plan to book this place you will need to spend plenty of time near the pool. The inside of the house was so impeccable that when we left we felt the need to leave it exactly as when we enter the property.
This home is definitely big enough for family of four or six. You will have a very comfortable stay. As for being dated, well, this is the look of the home and that is what makes it charming and unique.
We live in north La Quinta a few miles from this home and when my wife and two young sons saw this home, they decided to stay here. I will be staying here at this home at least three more times this year. I just hope that whoever rents this home keeps it and treats it as their own and leave as clean as we did.
Thank you for keeping this “home” as nice as it is.
So Much Fun
The house was great! We loved the Pool and Spa!
Fantastic yard and pool
This is an ideal location to get away in La Quinta's upper cove. The private yard with pool, spa, dining table, grill, music and lounge furniture is very hard to beat. We spent as much time as possible outside.
The house feels a bit dated and bed space is very limited with a somewhat uncomfortable double bed in the master, a smaller double in the second bedroom and a couple couches. The entertainment room was nicely equipped and very comfortable. Overall a very fun stay and would come back.
