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 Cove

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.

Lovely, quiet home in La Quinta Cove!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just as it was presented on VRBO - clean, spacious, well equipped. We appreciated the attentive care from Sarye & Justin - there ready to answer our questions/needs. We really enjoyed the use of the pool/spa. The bougainvillea in the garden was stunning; the grapefruit from the backyard tree delicious! Convenient location close to hiking trails & ease of access to great restaurants & area amenities. We would definitely consider booking this property again & recommend it to others.

Great house, Great location, Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already reserved the home for next year.

Where do I start?

1. Jason and Sarye were awesome. We had never used a propane gas grill, so Jason came over to show us how to work it. We felt that they were really interested in making our stay the best possible experience.

2. The kitchen was truly a chef's kitchen. We love to cook, and this kitchen had every tool, pan, and appliance we needed.

3. The location was great for us. It is close to Old Town and lots of golf courses.

4. The yard was great. We didn't use the pool, but we used the hot tub, loved it! The back yard was small but perfect for an outdoor meal, with bar and grill.

(5. My husband really appreciated the tv channel guide:)

A great stay, we look forward to our next visit!

Very clean, just as pictured on the website.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, and very well maintained.

There were 3 bedrooms and each had direct access to a bathroom. There was TV in each room, in addition to a 65 inch TV in the family room.

The spa and a small pool were in a private courtyard, very nice.

We enjoyed our stay very much and will book this house again.
