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.

Very cute decor and very relaxing
We enjoyed our stay at the HgTV house. The decor and kitchen were super cute and fully functional for everything we needed. The house was very clean and felt like it’s own little paradise. We enjoyed riding bikes to get coffee which was a extra perk. Our only complaint was that the pool was very cold when we arrived and not ready to jump on in. Skip was on a plane so he wasn’t able to answer our requests until the evening about heating the pool. When he did reply he was very thorough and we were able to get it heated for the next day. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at this place. ☀️🏖☀️🏖☀️🏖☀️🏖☀️🏖☀️🏖
Wonderful stay & communication...
We had a wonderful stay at Skip's house and have nothing but positive comments to make about the communication with Skip before, during and after our vacation - first class!
The home was well equipped with all of the essentials and made it easy to prepare meals, etc. The home was very clean and welcoming. We enjoyed the heated pool (needed it during January!) and the lovely gas fire pit was a nice place to sit some evenings with wine and enjoy being outside.
The great room TV and Netflix were fabulous to have as well - over all an excellent experience.
A couple of small things that many would not have issue with but we wished that there was a TV in the master bedroom along with some blackout curtains for those early morning sunrises. The master bathroom is lovely and the shower is fabulous! However, did not have a large vanity to place toiletries, etc on during our stay which to many would not be an issue, but would have been lovely to have some additional space.
You will not be disappointed with your stay at this home or your dealings with Skip - 5 stars!
This is a comfortable home in a great location. Perfect for a couple like us or for a family with children that make use of the extra bedrooms. The sunny back yard has several places to sit and enjoy the day--a dining table and chairs, swing chair, and plenty of chaise lounges for relaxing around the pool. We enjoyed many a twilight happy hour beside the outdoor fire bowl. Inside, the kitchen is reasonably well-equipped and on chilly winter nights the gas fireplace made the living area quite cozy. The owner, Skip, was wonderful to deal with. He clearly takes an interest in maintaining his property and was always responsive to our comments and requests (e.g., quickly getting a plumber in to fix a clogged drain.) You can't go wrong with this place.
Thank you so much Donna. It was such a pleasure to host you and we would love to have you and David back again sometime!
This is my second year staying here and it is amazing! We had such a wonderful time and Skip is very helpful and responsive. I will definitely be coming back!
Good place for a get away
Thanks so much Jesse...Great to have you and your family at our property and we invite you to return again..!
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.
Our house is very centrally located and is a large property with lots of privacy including private pool and spa. Amazing views from every area of property and our master bedroom has access to outside patio areas while our queen bedroom has mountain views. Additionally we are within walking distance of about fifteen different restaurants, a brand new luxury movie theater (serving food and beer/wine to your seats) and three local markets. There are great hiking trails nearby and biking routes and lots of great outdoor activities (golf, tennis, etc.). We even have bicycles here for your use to run errands or take leisurely rides around the area.
