About Kathy Turnquist

We are a San Francisco couple who “discovered” the La Quinta Hotel over 30 years ago, way back when it was in its original Hollywood Golden Era Retreat for the Stars configuration. During that period we lived in a number of Asian capitals working for an American international bank, a job requiring frequent travel back and forth between Asia and New York. The hotel’s serene escape ambiance provided the perfect in between stopover retreat enabling us to unwind and clear our minds before jumping back into the hectic business fray.

We now live in San Francisco involved full time in real estate activities, a business with attention to detail as its primary focus. I (Kathy) am available by telephone (415 474-5000 Ext. 2), or email to discuss questions you may have about the property or your visit in general.

In the desert we have a super Johnny-on-the-spot local property manager (Dennis) who will meet you at the property and familiarize you with it, and concierge (Teddi), both responsible for quick telephone responses to any requests you may have regarding the property, amenities, and local activities.

Kathy Turnquist purchased this house in 1999

Why Kathy Turnquist chose Deserts

For a number of years we stayed in the original hotel casitas for our intercontinental transit breaks. After moving to San Francisco we realized we needed our own sun and warmth break retreat for more frequent escapes from San Francisco’s fog, wind and chill. Santa Rosa Cove provided the ideal home away from home with amenities not available in a hotel suite (full kitchen, dining area, private mountain-view decks, fireplace etc.), but still a short drive or walk through the Spa Villa complex (5-10 minutes) to the Resort’s vibrant dining and entertainment environment.

We stroll over to the resort early morning with our little dog for coffee and a newspaper and for dinner and music in the evening. It’s so relaxing having almost 2,000 square feet of living area instead of a hotel room.

What makes this house unique

This single level home has its east facing living and dining areas and patio looking out to the resort Mountain Course 10th fairway and green. The patio has a gas BBQ, lounge chairs, and dining seating for 6, great for entertaining! The fully equipped eat-in kitchen has both counter seating and breakfast table. For working vacations there is a computer with Wi-Fi connections and printer at an adjacent counter.

The east facing master suite also overlooks the fairway. This is one of the few homes in Santa Rosa Cove with its own private courtyard with spa. We have upgraded the unit and decorated it with a tropical theme and unique indoor foliage that transitions the indoor and outdoor living areas. We know your stay will result in fond memories of the La Quinta Resort and Desert Cities, and multiple return visits.

Casa Bonita is a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to spend time at Casa Bonita--and it is a beautiful home. Each room felt so elegant and yet really comfortable. All amentities were there. We arrived after a long drive and relaxed in the spa. A computer was all set up so that we could and did go online. The view was stunning. I slept feeling like a princess. In the morning we ambled down to the Country Club for breakfast. I most highly recommend this vacation home.

Beautiful Home!! Absolutely perfect for us!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrived after a long drive and were met and checked in by the property manager, he was great, let us know about golf, and lots of other local activities. He let us know if we needed anything just call him anytime. This home was so comfortable, we grilled outside, walked over to the hotel restaurants, and to the nearby pool and spa, really had a holiday "away from it ", lots of space for all of us and not stuffed into a few hotel rooms. Hope to return again soon.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this lovely home in La Quinta and highly recommend the property.

The home is well equipped and maintained and perfectly situated with easy access to the Hotel property.

The home is perfect for entertaining; with the living room and dining room opening to the patio. We had a number of very nice summer evenings under the desert stars.....

We will return again.

This home is lovely and well appointed. It is comfortable and quiet.. It was immaculately kept.The amenities are perfect. This place had all we needed to enjoy our stay in the desert. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need if you enjoy cooking and entertaining. I will definitely come back and stay here. Highly recommended.

Los Gatos

Wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to tell you that my family truly enjoyed our get together at your house in La Quinta last weekend. My parents and sister came down from Sonoma, me and mine from Los Gatos, and my brother and wife from Scottsdale ( he rented a place at the resort, though.) The house was beautiful and comfortable. We loved it. It was great for our dog, Ella, who we were able to walk on the course early in the morning and at dusk I was playing in a National 50’s women’s tennis tournament with my team who stayed at The Enclave in a house owned by one of our team members. After they saw where I was staying they asked for the VRBO No. in case they wanted to come back to La Quinta for a vacation. They loved it as much as I did. Thanks again! -- Lynn

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay in La Quinta, but not in a cramped hotel room, so this home worked out perfectly for our group. Everyone had their own bedroom suite and tv, there was a big kitchen as well as the outside grill for cooking. We enjoyed the private spa and just relaxing on the second patio facing the golf course where we had many of our meals. We walked over to the resort restaurants and played golf at the Mountain course, and I even had a luxurious afternoon at the spa. The wifi and computer was appreciated, the house was clean and well maintained. The property manager was very helpful when we needed anything. We hope to return again!!
