Amazing vacation home in the desert for less than the price of most hotels.

This was our second time staying in this home. The home and furnishings are beautiful, with everything we need to enjoy ourselves for a week. I have two young boys and there is plenty of room for them to play. We love that the pool is salt water and warm. Old Town La Quinta, with restaurants and shops, is close by. Tracy, the owner, is extremely easy to work with and quick to respond to questions or requests. We will definitely be back again and again.

Tracy, thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home during our anniversary celebration. Everything is lovely - we especially enjoyed relaxing in your saltwater pool (it makes your skin feel so soft!) and watching a really big TV in the living room.
Everything travelers need to feel at home while away from home is here - from silverware and dishes to appliances to linens ... you don't need to bring a thing except your clothes and enough gas to get to the nearest grocery store. Essentials are all there, including some interesting spices on a rack in the kitchen.
It's always good to get home after being away, but we always felt welcome and at home at this beautiful house. The memories of comfortable living and beautiful surroundings will remain with us forever. Thanks again.

We decided to go away at the last minute, thankfully this house was available. Tracy was very helpful and wonderful to deal with. I will definitely be staying here again. The house doesn't have the "rental" feeling when you are there, it feels like home. Thank you Tracy!!!

Tracy was great, lovely home, awesome pool, and located near PGA west, what more could you ask for! My family and I look forward to staying there in the future.
Beware! You may never stay in a Hotel again!

Amazing! My family and I had never stayed in a vacation home before. Up to this point, we had either stayed in hotels or condos. After our stay at Tracy's home in La Quinta, we may never stay any where else!
The home itself is beautiful and well maintained. The amenities such as the pool and hot tub are the perfect size. The fact they are salt water is an added bonus. The master bed was comfortable and roomy with great access to the pool. The grill was used several times as well.
The La Quinta area had great dining possibilities. We ate out several times. There is amazing hiking in the area. However, if you stay in July plan to do your hiking very early in the AM as the temps will likely be triple digit by 10 AM or so. But we enjoyed the early hikes.
Tracy is very easy to work with and responsive with out being obtrusive. Our family will likely be staying here again. We have already recommended this place to family and I wouldn't be surprised if they take us up on the recommendation.
Beautiful house for an amazing Coachella experience

Tracy's home had all the amenities we could've asked for while attending the Coachella Music Festival, and without the insanely high prices that can be found at other houses. It was clean, comfy, spacious, and nothing beats hanging out poolside with the misters going in that +30C heat. Thanks for making a few Canadian's Cali. vacation just that much better, and we hope to see you again!
Beautiful property. We had a very tranquil stay!

My family had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Casa Hermosa. The house is clean and everything is new and beautiful, as shown in the pictures. The kitchen and bathrooms are gorgeous. The bedrooms have beautiful bedding and the beds are really comfortable (especially the two queen sized beds). The closets are large and the master bedroom walk-in closet is enormous. The pool was nice and warm for my young children so we could enjoy swimming all day. The first "step" of the pool is extra large and provided a great shallow area for my youngest to play. The mister system next to the pool was awesome and it cooled the pool area during the heat of the day. The house was well stocked for all our needs. The kitchen had all the essentials plus additional small appliances like a blender, a hand mixer, and of course a coffee maker. The laundry room has a washer, dryer and laundry soap.
The owner was very friendly and quickly responded to all my questions prior to and during my stay.
We hope to return in the fall and I have recommended this home to others.
One morning we drove to El Paseo in Palm Desert for breakfast. It was 9 miles away. There are many attractions, restaurants and shopping within driving distance but nothing within walking distance. Ralph's Grocery Store is nearby at the nearest major intersection. Trader Joe's is about 2 miles away. Read more
We are delighted that you had a great time and look forward to your future visit. For nearby dining and shopping you may want to try Old Town La Quinta just a short drive or an easy walk from the house, with many good restaurants, and boutique shops to enjoy. http://www.oldtownlaquinta.com/index.html
For some outdoor adventure you may want to visit the walking/biking/hiking trails at the top of the cove, again an easy walk or short drive from the house, and enjoy the beauty of the desert. (Google City of La Quinta parks and trails--Bear Creek Trail, Cove Oasis and Fred Wolff Nature Preserve.) Thanks for being wonderful guest, see you again soon!
Wonderful Honeymoon trip to the desert
Left on 06/29/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Waltandmichelle
We came out after our wedding (in la) for about 2 weeks. We live in Pasadena and visit the La Quinta resort with (his) parents each Memorial Day. We love the resort, but it's definitely a luxury, and not super cost - effective for us.
We love to play PGa west courses even when it's super hot, so having a pool and a place to make food is really important to us.
This wonderful home is owned by great folks that even had a bottle of champagne and delicious cupcake waiting for us when we arrived. We could tell a lot of work had been done to update the property. The house has great flow and the outdoor space is well designed. I love saltwater pools, so this place really sells me!
While this property is not in a gated community or on the golf course, the place has wonderful view of the mountains, and in the summer the morning sunrise is gorgeous when it first hits the sky.
We were also able to bring our dog, Duple, with us which just makes me extra happy about the whole stay. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Tracy!

Enjoyed the sparkling clean salt water pool and spa, a light filled home with high ceilings, and the privacy of a walled estate. Very walkable area. One can walk to dog park, the Cove hiking trails, and Old Town.
The only thing I would prefer not to hear are some of the local cars driving by who seem to have loud engines/mufflers (pool/spa area is located on corner) but as the home is located in a neighborhood this goes with the territory. Other than that slight irritation from car noise this home is a pleasant well appointed dog friendly abode. Read more
We are glad you enjoyed being able to walk to dinner or shopping in Old Town La Quinta, tennis at Fritz Burns Park, or a hike at Bear Creek Trails. It is nice to be centrally located. It is as you say a residential neighborhood, and the neighbors must go to work, but alas no busy freeway or major roads to deal with, and I still enjoy hearing the quails in the morning. Thanks for being our guests and we hope to see you again someday.

We loved the privacy and that we always had access to the coming and goings, without everyone having the same schedules. We certainly enjoyed the hot tub for our sore muscles after playing tennis. It is a convenient location to everything that you needed to get to. The owner was so accommodating and making us feel welcomed and at home. It is a lovely home with all the amenities. Read more
