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.

Pretty mountain views
We enjoyed our stay and were really pleased with the location. It’s convenient to so much and has a beautiful view of the mountains. We had two kids; 7 and 9 months with us and had *almost* everything we needed. I couldn’t find a colander (for Mac n cheese) and the pack n play really needs to be replaced with a newer one. We had a minor issue with the pool heating but as soon as we brought it to Skip’s attention he fixed it immediately. We’ll stay again!
Perfect location, beautiful house!
We were in town for the Indian Wells tennis tournament. We were two couples and this house was perfect!
Perfect location, can walk to shop, see a movie or just spend time around the pool!
We spent a little over a month here and Skip could not have been more accommodating. Very convenient location, great view of the rocky hillsides nearby, looking from the pool. House is equipped with everything you need to have a great stay. You won’t be disappointed.
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!
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.
