About Darren Gordon

We're originally from Orange County, Ca and have retired in Baja, MX. Our son manages the rental property. This is our home when we head north in the US so we keep it comfortable for us. We hope you find it so as well.

Darren Gordon purchased this house in 2014

Why Darren Gordon chose La Quinta Cove

I was raised in the Palm Springs area till the age of 7 then moved to Newport Beach and then Hawaii. Came to this area to visit family over the years & have always loved the desert & this area holds a lot of good memories.

What makes this house unique

Just love the open floor plan, private courtyard with pool. The French doors that open out to the patios. The kitchen is a joy to work in with lots of counter space all around. It's just an all around great house for relaxing & entertaining.

Perfect location. Perfect size. Perfect host!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say!!!! Darren and Carole are the best!!!! Not only they allowed us to arrive early but they left us check out late. This was the perfect home for my group of 6 for Stagecoach 2017. We didn't have to worry about community gates (to be honest last year we did and that was a major pain in the behind coming home from the festival). It was a quaint little neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Home was very spacious and open. EVERYTHING was supplied for us. Even Siracha! Needless to say we will definitely be booking again and referring all of our friends!!!

Thanks a bunch!

Rena and the gang!

Desert Oasis- A Home I Will Remember

  • 5 of 5

This home was in immaculate condition. I have rented over a dozen homes through vrbo and this was by far the best. The master bedroom is huge, dreamlike. There were high ceiling throughout the entire single story home. The property has very efficient use of space: pool/spa, 1900 sf, patio, and garage...My family and I truly loved it. I came down from San Francisco for a few days to watch the tennis tournament. I plan to return to this wonderful home again!

Beautiful home and setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property, neighborhood, and town are all perfect for relaxing but also for having fun. Many day or half day trips possible if you can tear yourself away from the pool! This was our best vacation ever!

We had a wonderful time in La Quinta. The house is very comfortable and so well equipped especially in the kitchen. Many basic products are available which makes it easier when it comes to cooking.

We loved our stay here. Darren's availability to answer our questions greatly contributed to our satisfaction.

The area has also so much to offer. We highly recommend the restaurants in Old La Quinta.

The Casa Quail has a winning formula: a comfortable house, peaceful and safe neighborhood, great hiking and biking.

One of our best vacation rental ever!

Nicely decorated, clean and comfortable home.Conveniently located to restaurants and shopping.

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving, we immediately felt at home. This was due in no small part to the pictures posted on the web site and the very complete, detailed information for arrival provided by the owner. The home was clean, comfortable and very well maintained. We appreciated the enclosed yard, which served as a retreat for our dog when not attending the dog shows. The homes location provides easy access to restaurants and shopping.

This review would not be complete without commenting on the Darren, the owner. He was a pleasure to work with and always available should a question arise.

We would definitely book again and refer without hesitation.
