About Skip Lanfried

We are 4th/5th generation Californians who have been fortunate enough to have traveled the world, but no matter what, we find ourselves always coming back to the desert.

Skip Lanfried purchased this house in 2014

Why Skip Lanfried chose La Quinta

We happened upon this property on accident one day. Having sat empty and unloved for several years, this property was a a true diamond in the rough. We are thrilled with the way it turned out. La Quinta has something for everyone. We hope you will find it a restful place to getaway.

What makes this house unique

YOU CAN WALK TO FIFTEEN LOCAL RESTAURANTS, THREE MARKETS (INCLUDING TRADER JOES and ALDI) AND A LUXURY MOVIE THEATER. Close to everything you think you want to do. Or, you can do nothing and just lay around by the pool, which is fine, too.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the month of February in this home. The backyard is fabulous! It is quite large, with a nicely heated pool and a fire pit that we used almost every night. It was very private and quiet.

The location is hard to beat. It is within walking distance of many restaurants, the movie theater and shopping. Despite being so conveniently close to everything, the street and neighborhood was very quiet.

The home was nicely equipped and very comfortable. Nice furnishings, very comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen.

The owner, Skip, was extremely accommodating and very responsive, when needed. It is obvious that he takes pride in his home and wants his guests to be comfortable and well taken care of while there.

The one limitation is that only the master has closet space. Even though there are three bedrooms, we felt that the home was really suited for two couples, if staying for more than a few days. There is lots of drawer space in the two extra bedrooms, but no hanging space. We remedied this by purchasing a rolling rack to place in one of the bedrooms, which worked out well.

We were very happy to stay here and would highly recommend it for a stay in the desert.

Five Stars for Casa Quinta!

  • 5 of 5

Certainly as described and even better! We had a nice family vacation and were very pleased with the accommodations. The house was in good shape with nice appliances, amenities, and comfortable beds. We especially liked that available washer and dryer along with the detergents and dryer sheets! The water pressure in the shower as fantastic, which is a big one for me. Lastly, Skip was very nice and provided excellent communication.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is very warm and inviting. The entire home is set up so all you need is food and drinks. The home is beautifully decorated and has so many nice features. We spent our Christmas 2016 holiday with our family there and everyone enjoyed themselves. The home is very convenient to shopping. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the baths are all update beautifully. The kitchen is a gourmet chefs dream. The pool and the out door seating includes a fire pit. We will be back to stay again next year. Thank you Skip for sharing your home with us.
