Exotic Luxury

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I stepped through the front door I felt like this is just the kind of place that you don't want to leave - perfect for kicking back and relaxing amongst world treasures collected and a hint of the tropics in the garden surrounding the pool and jacuzi.

The furnishings, artifacts, art and amenities were all high end and most interesting. You can tell that a world traveler with exquisite taste did the interiors. Oh yes, gorgeous and spacious kitchen as well.

I would highly rate and recommend this property. It was fantastic!

Great Time in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to the desert. Given the time of year (Labor Day) I was concerned about the prospective heat and what that might mean in terms of limiting activities. I needn't have worried! The house was terrific! Of course there was the pool and an excellent pool area for early morning snoozing. During the heat of the day (and at night) the house had great built-in entertainment, from wi-fi to TV/DVD. Excellent kitchen, bar and BBQ. Also, it is superbly located, close to the La Quinta Hotel (with its restaurant options) and a short, but vigorous early morning walk to La Quinta Village for coffee and pastries. All in all, a perfect end-of-summer break in a fabulous house!

Nice, older home with great pool area.

  • 4 of 5

This home was very peaceful and the pool is lovely. Although this house has not been very recently updated it has pretty much everything one could want (including an unusually good video and music collection) and is very well maintained and kept immaculately. The third bedroom casita was nice, the only complaint about it was that it was a little musty. La Quinta is a great spot but in the winter somewhat deserted, not surprisingly, because of the heat. (Which we loved though on both counts). The "Old Town" is a short drive away and probably a lot more bustling during the winter months. Not much was open during our stay but that was not surprising to us.

It is particularly nice that the pool has palms and vegetation that offer shade at different times of the day. The hot tub only worked for two days of our week and although we did call about getting it fixed, and eventually got a call back, the pool person, sadly, was not able to get it done before we left. This would have been more of an annoyance if the evenings had been cooler than they were. One thing that was a little unsettling was that The Enclave was pretty much devoid of other homeowners or guests (summer) and even though this is a gated area it felt a little edgy in some ways because it was so deserted. In fact the house across the street was broken into and police were there doing a search on one day. All in all, it is a lovely home and the pool area is great with a nice view of the hills behind the home. La Quinta is very well situated and not as busy as Palm Desert or Palm Springs which was really nice. I would recommend this home for people who want to spend time in the pool and relax.

Owner's Response: Nice to hear everyone enjoyed their holiday at Casa Flora, we appreciate feedback from guests. People familiar with La Quinta who come in the summer "to get away from it all", can play world class golf for very low fees and have large homes w/pools for a great price. Comment on line 7 mentioning area being deserted in winter is incorrect, as this rental was in the summer, not winter. Also in summer, there are absentee homeowners in the community and we are pleased that police and security staff investigate immediately if an owner's alarm is activated for any reason. This is a double gated community, well patrolled by security, with few problems. The house is not very old, so "not updated" and "older home" is a subjective opinion. New kitchen appliances and grill were installed this past year, new features are always in progress. There are many photos of Casa Flora (see listing on this site), which show its various indoor and outdoor features. We have two managers and a pool manager, always on call. Primary check-in manager noted receiving no message from the guest, second manager heard from the guests near the end of their stay, too late to do any spa repair. Guests are given an orientation, there are detailed instructions at the house, managers ask to be contacted right away with any issues (if a guest does not hear back, they should call and leave messages again). Our many returning guests do compliment us on our top notch management staff. Mostly, we want everyone to be relaxed and happy and have a great holiday!

What a wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us be your guests! What a nice weekend our family enjoyed! The house is beautiful, and Dennis, the property manager, was very nice and helpful. Our whole family, including our dog, truly relaxed and enjoyed our weekend at Calle Flora. My husband and son-in-law enjoyed playing golf at the beautiful La Quinta Resort Dunes course and Mountain course; the girls and I relaxed by the pool; a truly wonderful weekend away! Again, we thank you for making this a fantastic getaway; everything you could possibly need is provided & every detail is wonderful! We all look forward to another trip soon!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Spent four days there with two other couples. The house was exactly as advertised. Everything was strictly first class. Loved the pool and spa. Lots of room inside. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the desert area.

I lived like a movie star!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Flora...How can you explain living the life of a Movie Star. So gorgeous you think that you are in a dream, I had to pinch myself. Every room is tastefully appointed, the pool view from the Living Room, Dining Room and Master Bedroom is stunning. Fantastic Art inside and out delights and makes a walk through Casa Flores a magical experience. The bedrooms are oppulent with fine linens and pillows galore. To be there is an experience you will never forget!
