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.

The Cove Experience at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

This house provides a flawless experience for anyone interested in experiencing life in La Quinta Cove. Spacious and clean. The floorplan is as good as it gets, starting with the southwest exposure of the pool area, which provides lots of sun and great views of the mountains. The backyard has a nice patio and bar/grill for outdoor entertaining. Landscaping is very nice, lots of bougainvilleas. Inside, we especially liked the oversized master bedroom/bathroom, with a desk for setting up your laptop, and large flatscreen TV. The main area of the house has an open floor plan, the kitchen is very nice, and the house is fully furnished, including utensils and all those other little things you take for granted in your own home.

If you like walking or hiking, this is the place to be. The home has close proximity mountains in all 4 directions, but we'd recommend walking to the 'top' (south) end of the cove, which is just a few blocks, and picking up the trailheads there, or just walk the paved trails around the south and west perimeter of the Cove.

As for the owners, Sarye and Justin, they had everything set up perfectly, and responded quickly to any questions we had. They live locally, and know this area very well, so they're a great resource if you have questions about La Quinta. And if you're interested, they might even sell you a house. :) We can't imagine anyone being disappointed in this place.

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.
