About Susan Vander Hoek

John and I are living a dream life in La Quinta. John grew up in western Michigan, while Susan grew up in Seattle, near Lake Washington. We raised our family (two sons) on Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound where we enjoyed boating, going to our kids sporting events, traveling, cooking and home renovating. John commuted by ferry to Boeing for his career as an aerospace engineer while Susan was raising their sons and planning new adventures for their family.

After buying this home in the La Quinta Cove and enjoying all that it has to offer, meaning lots of sun and not a lot of rain, we decided to retire early and move to La Quinta. We now permanently live in another home in La Quinta and we offer this home to you as a vacation rental.

Susan Vander Hoek purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan Vander Hoek chose La Quinta Cove

John and I bought this property after a very special trip to La Quinta in 2013 for John's 60th birthday. We heard about La Quinta by way of our son David. He said it reminded him of Whistler, BC, but in the desert. He knew that we would love the sun, the mountain views and that it had our favorite stores, Costco and Trader Joes. He was right.

David set us up to meet his dear friends, Sue and Don and they gave us an unbelievable tour of La Quinta. Don drove us around in their daughter's convertible and they showed us the La Quinta Resort, the Cove and the Polo fields, in Indio. We drove by palm trees, bougainvillea in bloom and citrus trees filled with oranges, lemons and grapefruit. The weather was perfect and we fell in love instantly with the La Quinta Cove and bought this home the very next day.

What makes this house unique

The location in the Cove is amazing with incredible mountain views and privacy. I loved waking up in the morning and having my coffee by the pool, while listening to birds and seeing an occasional road runner. The desert mountains seem magical and they change colors during the day. The desert flowers are beautiful. The desert landscape was something so different but something that I wanted to learn more about.

John and I love the summer too, as we can get up early and do our errands and spend hours in the afternoon in the pool. Later in the evening, we will go somewhere for happy hour or attend a concert or movie. Life is great in La Quinta!

Beautiful, Spacious, Perfect for Families.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The house is so beautiful, roomie, and clean. It is perfect for families. There are board games and a pool. The pool was the perfect depth so my two younger children who don't know how to swim yet felt very safe and had a blast swimming. This home is well maintained. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking to get away for the weekand or anytime. We will definitely be back. I want to thank the owners with all my heart for letting us rent thier home to give my children amazing memories.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. Paid $50 a day for the pool to be heated and it was still a little cool, but not bad. The hot water did run out after filling up the indoor hot tub each night, but that was fine. Otherwise, all great.

Adorable home. Fantastic weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the first weekend of Coachella. The house is absolutely beautiful. It is very spacious and roomy for the 6 of us that stayed there. It was fun to lay by the pool and relax during the day. And the house is only a 15 minute taxi ride to the festival.

Espy was so accommodating and made renting this property a great experience! Would definitely come back again!

Ideal Headquarters For All Things La Quinta and Surrounding Desert Cities.

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4 with 2 boys aged 12 and 8 stayed for 3 days. The home is situated in a quiet, safe and friendly neighborhood in La Quinta. Perfect place to make you're HQ for all activities as it is a stone's throw from the La Quinta Resort and Old Town as well as Highway 111 that leads to the neighbor cities. Clean and pristine lap pool to get a morning or any time swim workout in as well as a perfect kitchen with all the accessories to prepare your'e own meals. I would highly recommend this place and plan to be back soon!
