Perfect Desert Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week at Ian and Sara's lovely home. Everything about our stay was easy and perfect!

The house is beautiful and so comfortable. Even with a house full for Thanksgiving dinner, there was plenty of space for everyone. The hot tub felt perfect on some chilly evenings, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. This is an immaculate home in a very convenient location. Highly recommend this property to others!

Paradise in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great place, look no further. The pictures are not only accurate but only part of the story. The owner has thought of all the little things too, to make your vacation perfect. The Kitchen is loaded with all the necessary pots/pans and utensils - including a smoothie maker. The Pool also has rafts, basketball goal and even a care kit of sunscreen lotion by the door. The office with a pull out couch is great if you need to stay connected along with a printer/scanner. The House is situated about 1 mile from Old Town La Quinta which has plenty of activities all the time. We will be back.

Beautiful quiet home

  • 5 of 5

Ian and Sara have set up a beautiful vacation home oasis in La Quinta CA. Their home is immaculate, comfortable, and well set up. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay in March, but they acted very quickly to solve the problems. They were very accessible and accommodating. This is a lovely place to spend a month!

A very classy, clean home for a perfect desert getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were able to stay at this home this month and it was a very enjoyable experience. Everything about the place was perfect and we definitely recommend it to others who seek comfort, style and recreation all from one place.

The photos show the place exactly as it is. Right when we walked in the doors, the class and cleanliness was noticeable. Tile floors, upscale furnishings (but very comfortable), flat screen TVs, new appliances... You name it this home had it.

The three rooms are very big, The master and its bath were especially nice. The room that we used was the second "master" which was a bit smaller than the first, but barely. The beds and linens were also very comfortable.

The house has everything we needed, but the backyard and pool area was also great. It was about 100-105 degrees while were in La Quinta, so the pool was used quite a bit. Perfect after a round of golf. The pebble tech bottom of the pool was a nice touch too.

The area surrounding the house offered shopping and restaurants that were convenient as well as very good. There is a Ralph's supermarket about 5 minutes up the road. A great coffee place in the same center. We only went to a few restaurants, but if you like a good sports bar to watch all the games happening at once, Burgers and Beers is right down the road. And then we found a very cool, small, family owned (it seemed at least) Mexican restaurant called Casa Mendoza Bar and Grill that had excellent food and music.

We golfed the Mountain Course. $40 bucks for a round of golf with a cart. Beautiful course to play. Pretty forgiving for novice golfers like myself. I liked the back nine how the course laid against the mountains. I will play there again.

Lastly, the owner, Ian, was very easy and friendly to work with. Through our haste and rush to get there, we must have dropped the last page of our entry instructions. We called his cell number and he helped us with no problem.

I hope that we can return someday! They have a great little book library set up in their family/TV room and I added a book to their collection. I am only 1/2 way done with the book, so I look forward to finishing it someday while relaxing by the pool.
