About Sarye Smith

We met in real estate school and shorty after tied the knot!

Sarye Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarye Smith chose La Quinta

If you are looking for a comfortable, clean and tranquil home this is for you!

What makes this house unique

This is the first home we bought together and we knew from the beginning that we wanted to update it throughout yet still keep a little Santa Fe flair. We enjoy the west facing pool/spa, and the views are amazing! The night sky is always lit up since we don't have any street lights in La Quinta Cove.

Great Desert Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I went up here with my wife and daughter and we had a blast. You have a great view of the rocky hills on one side. Shopping is close by. There are plenty of places to go hiking and just take a nice walk. The pool and jacuzzi are awesome. The essence of the home just felt right. Everything was on point and the owners were super fast and very kind. Thank you for letting me stay here! I look forward to it again!

Beautiful, clean and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Took a last minute trip with some friends and was able to spend the best Thanksgiving getaway at this property. The house was clean, loaded with necessities and the pool/spa was the perfect size to just stay at home and enjoy the company. Grocery stores are close by to stock up on BBQ goods. Neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. I already am planning to go again and would recommend it to anyone.

Desert Trip rental

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just perfect! Property had everything one needed to feel at home away from home. Location was ideal for the Desert Trip concert and many other beautiful things to see and do. Home was very clean and well stocked. Owners were available for any questions and made sure we were comfortable. I highly recommend this listing!!!

Sarye is a dream host

  • 5 of 5

Sarye hosted us both weekends of Coachella and could not have been more accommodating. Super responsive via text, she let us check in early, leave provisions at the house during the week between our two weekends, and was just all around gracious and wonderful. Definitely staying here again.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in La Quinta Cove! The house was perfect for our family of 5 (3 kids ages six and younger). The kids loved the pool and hot tub and we loved the big open kitchen/family room! There are great hiking trails nearby and Old Town is a 2 minute drive. The neighborhood was friendly and quiet and Sarye and Justin, the owners were great!! Warm, friendly and responsive. We come to the desert every year and I think we may have found a place to come back to!

La Quinta has many choices for rentals...

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at La Quinta Cove. The best part was the excellent attention that the (next door) owner's gave us. Any need or question was promptly taken care of and we were treated as friends rather than customers. Payments were quickly acknowledged and any additional charges were made clear. This is extremely important to us.

La Quinta covers a lot of ground and La Quinta Cove is an older development within the boundaries. There is a lot of activity in the Cove as it transitions from a middle class/working community to one that will be dominated by second and vacation homes. Remodels and new homes are seen in many places. It appears to be a great time to buy some property in the Cove.

The rental home is relatively new and has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. We shared the home with another couple and had plenty of room for privacy when required. The outdoor area has a small pool (wading variety) and has a nice spa. Enclosed by and adobe type wall, this acts as a barrier between the adjacent homes that shields vision but not all sounds.

As stated earlier, we have rented in the La Quinta area previously. Since we are golfers, other rentals have been on or near golf courses. These were higher priced homes and most included a larger pool, workout facility and gated entrances. The Cove was a pleasant experience and a very good value.

We currently live on a resort in central Oregon; moved to OR from another resort area in Colorado. We did not get the "resort" feeling at the Cove, but this is not what everyone wants.
