About PETER DAPRIX
Peter D'Aprix and his wife, Linda, and partner in all ways, have purchased this luxury villa just this summer. We fell in love with the views, the light, the open and airy feeling of the house, the finishing touches, the privacy of the floor plan letting each room be separated from the others, each becoming its own entity, each with their own character. There is something special about the desert and even more special about looking out over the green and undulating landscape that surrounds the villa, the peace, the rusty, crusty hills in the background with their long horned sheep well out of sight, that makes this spot special. While right on the beaten path of highway 111, within a stone's throw of Palm Desert, Palm Springs and the other glittering food and shopping areas, it is nevertheless caught in a timeless eddy of tranquility that the others lack. And this appeals to us immensely. The skies are constantly changing. Early morning and evening are especially appealing. A photographer's dream.
PETER DAPRIX purchased this Villa in 2014
Why PETER DAPRIX chose La Quinta
We found this property and immediately fell in love with it. It had been heavily remodeled, walls removed, spaces opened to light and air and 'people flow'. The morning light shines in one side and the afternoon light the other. The kitchen was completely remodeled with new granite counters, all new stainless steel large appliances, much thought given to the ability to both prepare a meal and provide space for keeping visitors out of your way but plugged in as well. The 24' square stone styled tile is cool to the feet while the fuzzy carpets in the bedrooms great for yoga or other restful pursuits and absorb the sound. There was the perfect space to install a pool and spa with views out over the links just a couple steps from the patio doors. Understated luxury, comfortable yet clean and uncluttered.
What makes this Villa unique
Open floor plan; impeccable interior design; superbly stocked for short and long stays, ideal location, luxury and practicality combined, incredible views, easy access to shopping, dining and other activities such as the gold, polo, tennis.

We absolutely loved our stay at this house. The house, the grounds, the view of the fairway and PGA West were all fantastic. The photographs depicting the place are accurate. It is a very comfortable home (and furniture) with all the extra's that we needed for a one-month stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking utensil we needed. We had no problems while there. I did contact Peter several times during our stay to ask him questions and he always promptly and thoroughly answered them. He has a great sense of humor. We loved riding our bicycles [plus, the house came with one "cruiser"] and going for walks in the neighborhood. We were able to see the bighorn sheep on numerous occasions that come down off the mountains. As advertised, the house is on the golf course. Although we were able to collect a few golf balls that strayed in the pool, yard or patio area during our stay, the park-like setting and views made it well worth the minor risk. We did not heat the pool but found it to be quite refreshing "as is" on hot days. We only used the hot tub a couple of times but it quickly heated up within one-hour. Plus, there are two community pools and hot tubs two doors down on either side of the street (one pool was heated; both hot tubs were heated). We have rented quite a few houses and this certainly ranks as one of the very best.
Peter and Monica
What a delightful review! We loved having you here and you left it in great shape and extended it tender loving care. We try to set up the house as a place where we would want to live or at the least spend a holiday here. We cook all our meals so the kitchen must lend itself to cooks or just anyone wanting to try their hand at this fun occupation.
And for those that have to have working holidays (as the British call it "Busman's Holidays") we also try to make sure they will have a place to set up their computer in the Twin Bedroom and have a good internet connection and a printer.
I hope your trip back was uneventful and relaxing. One can always hope!
Beautifully decorated with a wonderful view.
This was everything we could have hoped for. The owners were so very responsive to my emails. This house is just perfect for a stay at PGA west. We stayed for a month and loved everything about this house and property!
SPECTACULAR AND DESIGNER DETAIL!
We rented this vacation home while we were relocating. It is meticulously decorated and
the home boasts of superb quality throughout. Very well maintained with a relaxed, tranquil
and transcendental atmosphere which allowed us to leave the outside world at the door.
From relaxing by the pool or watching the sun rise, the home was everything we asked for and more. For a vacation, we look forward to revisiting this home in the near future.
And it was a pleasure having you stay in our home in La Quinta. I am so glad you enjoyed everything we have tried to include in the home and property to make a stay both peasant and comfortable. I hope we can see you again soon.
Although the rental was perfectly clean, we had a serious issue with roaches in the house. The owners provided spraying for the roaches which helped to improve the situation (but did not end it). We also found that it was not very private since there were no window coverings on all the large sliding glass doors that faced the golf course. We would not rent this property again.
You are quite right, houses in La Quinta and in the desert in general suffer from insects, usually crickets, but not restricted to them, finding a way into the houses even when they are well sealed as is ours. A constant battle. And you also, erroneously, complained of mouse droppings and then swept them away before the Western Termite people you recommended and we used could see them. They arrived as quickly as they could to deal with both the insects (not roaches but Water Bugs) and the mouse problem that did not actually exist. But this cost us a lot of money to deal with and we had the service follow up monthly, and in that first month they came twice. I honestly do not know what more you or anyone can do than have exterminators come to deal with what they are expert at doing and who have the best knowledge of the situation that exists in the desert regions. If they can't solve that problem I don't know who can. We arrived at the house the day you left and did not see any insects.
As for the privacy, you did have a tour of the house the year before you decided to take it after having seen several other properties. We pointed out at that time where the blinds were and where they were not. We do not have them on the east facing patio windows since we do like the unobstructed view of the mountains, the golf course and the pool/spa. But all the other windows in all the bedrooms and the family room have blinds for complete privacy in case someone gets the impression from your comment that they would be exposed to public view in those private areas. So really this should have come as no surprise and no one else has complained about this over the last 3 year that we have been renting the property.
You also had many other complaints only one of which proved to be an actual issue, the drip from the master WC which we had corrected immediately. There was no gas leak in the laundry room. There is no gas in the laundry room. We sent you instructions to turn up the temperature of the water heater, we have instruction attached to the water heater and we paid our handyman to show you how to do it but you never did turn it up but complained about the lack of hot water in the master shower anyway.
But we always take complaints seriously although in the past we have had so few and we acted on yours every time even when it was determined there was not problem.
I am sorry you do not want to rent our property again, but perhaps that is a mutually agreeable situation.
Fabulous stay and properly in a great location
The house was perfect for 4 adults and 2 children. Modern with good appliances, great views and pool. Very clean and it really did look like the photos!! The owners were VERY responsive and communicative, with very detailed information about the property. It was a great property for our family and we would definitely return. Fabulous thank you!
Not at all - thank you! You are the perfect guests and a delight to have you enjoy our villa. We try to make it the kind of place to enjoy for those special holidays but also to enjoy year round. While the house is set up with adults in mind, we hope we are also providing for the kids in the family as well with the card table with its protective cover and chairs for those who want to play games and build things with gooey, sticky stuff as well as have a more kid friendly place to eat. The off season leaves the valley quiet and peaceful; always a parking place to be found, no lines in stores and the pool is swimming temperature thanks to the sun.
We too love that early morning sun coming up over the pool and green fairway, bathing the back side of the house in its warm light, then at the end of the day, the magic of the setting sun rendering the far hills painted in pink with the last of the sun’s rays as we sit in the spa. I hope you managed that magic moment. You will always be welcomed back whenever the urge arrises.
Beautiful month vacation in La Quinta!
My husband and I rented this lovely villa for the month of May. We were very pleased with this spacious, clean, well appointed home. The plus for us was the cozy patio and almost new pool. Our 18 month old grandson especially loved the pool sand shelf with the umbrella! Situated on the fairway was always interesting and made for a pretty view with mountains in the background. One day we had visitors on the fairway, 8 Big Horn Sheep, just cruising and eating foliage. Owners were very nice and accommodating to rent from. Everything in the villa works beautifully and there is a comprehensive manual that answered any questions. If we vacation again for a month in La Quinta we will definitely stay in this beautiful villa again!
And Patti it was a pleasure to have you and your family enjoying our villa. I am envious of your sheep sighting! We have never seen them although we have heard that others have.
We keep trying to add more features both large and small for our visitors such as a foot pump we just added to save lungs when inflating the pool floating toys. We would love to welcome you back should you decide to spend more time in the Coachella Valley.
Cable car (Palm Springs Aerial Tram) up to the top of the mountains. "The Living Desert" zoo outside of Palm Desert.
