About the property

3b 2b Large pool home with a swanky zen vibe near Indian Wells Tennis Gardens

AT THE CROSSROADS TO EVERYTHING...Looking for a place that's central, new, hip, near championship golf & tennis, and private? Well, you've found it. At Point Happy in La Quinta you can walk to nearly every hotspot in town... and Palm Springs is only a few minutes drive away.

A beautifully and professionally decorated 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home with private pool and spa with incredible mountain views and private RV parking; this gorgeous home is located in the prestigious area of Point Happy, La Quinta and is perfectly set within walking distance to everything you'll need.

Everything is brand new inside this Point Happy getaway, from the professionally designed decor to the newly installed kitchen and flooring. With just under 2000 square feet of open floorplan living space, this comfortable home has great separation of bedrooms, with the Master Suite at one end and 2 Guest Bedrooms and bath at the other.

The Great Room features a comfortable seating area with a 50" smart TV, a large dining table for six (that quickly extends to 10), and an open Gourmet Kitchen with stainless appliances, expansive pantry, and large breakfast everything at hand that a gourmet cook could want. And your bartender will love the wet bar with 2 built in wine and beverage refrigerators. It's perfect for hanging out together while cooking, entertaining, bar tending, watching movies or playing games.

Just off the Great Room is the ultra-private Master Suite with King size bed and dual vanities in the en-suite bathroom. At the other end of the house are two Guest Bedrooms, one with King size bed and a Queen in the other, as well as a Guest Bathroom. All three bedrooms feature 40" flat screen HD TV's and comfortable luxurious new bedding and option for those who prefer down comforters. There are 3 single daybeds in the Sunroom for additional guests.

The spacious back yard features a sparkling extra large swimming pool and spa, lighted gazebo bar and bar stools with ceiling fan, mature fruit trees and a dramatic close-up southwest view of the Santa Rosa mountains with stunning Sunrises and sunsets. There is also gated RV parking on property with its own driveway. This neighborhood is nestled in Point Happy, and is a very short walk to many great restaurants and shops along Highway 111, or a short drive to several hiking trails, PGA West, Indian Wells Tennis Garden and La Quinta Spa and Resort

About David & Daisy Vazquez

David and i have been married for almost 20 years and and have 3 amazing kids. Since i can remember we have wanted a home in the desert. We live one foot in the suburbs of LA and one foot in the desert. I am an Interior Designer fascinated with mid-century architecture, while my husband has made it his hobby. We collect Josh Agle (better known as "Shag") and Berndt Heidemann art that you'll see scattered throughout the house - both are very "Palm Springs"! We love to cook and entertain - you will see that clearly when you get to the house! It's stocked with everything we need to have an impromptu dinner or pool party.

David & Daisy Vazquez purchased this house in 2014

Why David & Daisy Vazquez chose La Quinta

The whole 1/2 acre property has a Zen serenity vibe that makes people never want to leave - one of our renters loved it so much they purchased a house in our neighborhood before checking out, true story!

My husband and i have searched for years for our dream home, even when we were students and didn't have two nickels to rub together we would come out to open houses and dream about our future home in the desert. When we saw this house, with it's open floor plan and it's Rock Hudson movie style pool, we immediately put in an offer and it became ours! We then did a search and found that we had purchased a home in "Point Happy" with a rich history including the DuPonts once owning the land! The house and the area are very special.

What makes this house unique

The house has an amazing vibe that makes you want to sit and sip a drink and listen to Sinatra or some Bossa Nova - perfect for entertaining or a romantic escape. Once in, you feel far from everything yet its just really a short walk from restaurants, markets, and stores. You won't find a better location!

Come to Point Happy, you won't regret it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is absolutely breathtaking. Everything is like on the pictures...actually even better. We had a very easy check in, as Daisy gave me all information 2 days earlier. The house is very spacious and has seriously everything you need. A garage, shampoo, conditioner, showergel, spices, wifi, pool supermarkets like targo walmart etc all nearby. Daisy and Dave have an excellent taste in design. You can see that they love their house, which make you feel beeing home. If you dont go there for vacation, u must be stupid. One of the best places to be!

Great place, Great owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Stagecoach in April. Daisy and Dave were very easy to communicate with and ensured we had everything we needed throughout the weekend. When we arrived there was even a gift basket with some extra snacks which was awesome.

Check in and check out are easy. The house is very clean, beds are comfortable, there are extra pool floaties if you need them, there is a fire pit by the pool. We were very close to the supermarket and a quick Lyft from the venue.

I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Home. Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This home was beautiful, clean and in a great location. Close to many restaurants, golf courses and activities. Has all of the amenities you would look for in an upscale VRBO rental. The owner's were extremely obliging and eager to make our stay as perfect as possible.

A couple of minor issues: Though we did not intend to swim in the pool, it was not made clear of the extra costs to have the pool heated upon arrival and during our stay. Also the Great Room TV did not operate properly. As we where there to watch the Indian Wells tennis tournament and play golf, they did not offer the Tennis Channel or the Golf Channel to keep up on the major tournaments going on at the time.

Other than those minor issues, we would definitely come back and enjoy this beautiful home again.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Daisy and David for letting us stay at your home. I appreciated your rapid response to our questions. Your home was very comfortable, clean, and had great amenities. Also, the kitchen was well stocked with daily essentials: dish soap, spices, coffee filters, paper towels, etc. Additionally, the location is ideal for attendance at the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament at Indian Wells. I'd definitely stay at your home the next time I'm in the Palm Springs area.

Spacious, clean, and modern house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for labor day weekend with kids ranged from 2 - 8 years old. House was very clean, modern and spacious. Kitchen had more than what we needed! Bed was very comfortable and big (3 kings). Owener was very quick to answer some questions. Pool was great! It had shallow area fir little ones and deep (8ft) area for adults. Lighting in the back yard was beutiful at night, but it was too hot for us to stay outside even at night. We really enjoyed our stay and hoping to come back next year!
