Rachel from London said

We loved every minute of our trip to La Quinta. The house itself is overwhelmingly beautiful, peaceful, and equipped with everything you could need to relax and enjoy your holiday. From the pool, to the hot tub to the fire pit, home theatre, jacuzzi bath, golf buggy, and of course the stunning scenery which surrounds the house. It provides the perfect location to get away from it all, whilst also being easy driving distance from LA, San Diego and other desert attractions. There are great restaurants (we highly recommend Okura sushi) only 5 minutes drive away, and the divine La Quinta resort and spa are also only just down the road. We would go back in the flash of an eye and recommend anyone looking for great weather and wonderful generous accomodating hosts, get in touch with Bob and Sharon- especially if you have a place in London that you can offer them over the Olympics. Thank you Bob and Sharon for a wonderful stay- an amazing first home exchange

We spent a wonderful week in Sharon and Bob's magnificent home in La Quinta, California. This home, more like a luxury hotel really, easily accommodates up to eight guests with plenty of room to spare. Everything is first class. The home sits on a beautiful golf course, and the grounds of the home are meticulously maintained, including the "orchard" with fresh orange, grapefruit and lemon trees. The pool and heated spa received a good workout during this week of perfect weather. La Quinta is a charming place, with great shopping and dining. There is lots to do, especially for the golfer and the hiker. Magnificent desert vistas are minutes away. We would recommend Sharon and Bob's home in La Quinta without reservation. It was an oasis of pleasure in a cold February. Bob and Lynnette Harris Washington DC # 467137
