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 Deserts

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.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

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.

Family Thanksgiving Togetherness

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little home away from home nestled in a beautiful setting! Our host, Skip, made sure the house was ready and the pool in the backyard was a perfect place for lounging, chatting, reading and taking very special family photos! Skip was responsive to all questions and really helped us familiarize with the property & surrounding area. We enjoyed a ping pong tournament in the garage while our Thanksgiving feast was cooking! The home was so warm and comfortable with great charm..we are eager to plan another trip to Casa Quinta soon!

Quiet, nice vacation spot with all the amenities-including spotless pool and view.

  • 4 of 5

You really can't ask for more than Skip Lanfried's getaway. It's a well thought-out, everything-at-your fingertips needed for a wonderful time.

We took our family of six down for a week and had a really relaxing experience. We liked the neighborhood too with the enormous theater across the street,

Trader Joe's and lots of good restaurants. The interior of the house is artistically designed and a pleasure.

We have established our new outpost in La Quinta. Thanks for everything, Skip. We'll be back.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great vacation at Casa Quinta. The house is updated, in a nice neighbourhood and had everything we were looking for. Skip is awesome to deal with. He went above and beyond for us. We were able to walk to groceries, shopping and restaurants. It was a short drive to golfing and hiking. The weather was perfect and we can't wait to come back.
