We've rented a number of houses for getaways and have never been more satisfied. The Moroccan theme is fantastic in person -- our 8-person party took a bunch of photos around the property, and it seriously looks like we went to northern Africa. Everything was squeaky-clean on arrival. Plenty of towels. Beautiful and very quiet neighborhood atop a gradual incline on the edge of the desert, surrounded by mountains. You can see the lights of the Coachella Valley from the (very cool) roof deck. We were attending an event at the Merv Griffin Estate, which is about a 15-minute drive from the house (and which also has some Moroccan details, incidentally, though they're not nearly as well-executed); quaint Old Town La Quinta is significantly closer. There are three bedrooms with an extra day bed in the master suite, but the house feels much larger than that. The enormous living room/common area could be converted into a half basketball court were the owner so inclined. (Speaking of basketball, head down Eisenhower to Montezuma for a nice outdoor full court with a perfectly maintained surface.) The hot tub is easy to operate via remote control and was perfect for our two starry nights. This house was clearly a labor of love and is a privilege to stay in. A++

“Absolutely amazing home”

I have to say, the general comment from the six of us, was that the pictures didi not do justice.
The home was more beautiful and warm than we could have imagined.
We have all agreed we will be returning as often as possible.
A little oasis in the desert.
Beautiful

“Zahara is spectacular!”

Zahara is spectacular! We had the pleasure of being the first guests at Ed and Su Fei’s amazing new villa. Upon our arrival, we were immediately impressed by the pristine architecture and landscaping, as well as the use of colorful tiles throughout the property. Once we entered the compound, it felt as if we had been transported to an exotic, far away destination. The home has a stunning gourmet kitchen, professional design details and offers every amenity imaginable. Zahara’s unsurpassed, panoramic view of the Santa Rosa Mountains from the front courtyard, as well as the observation deck, is absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful surrounding walls of the compound give you a feeling of solitude, privacy and security. Our teenage boys also appreciated the fabulous spa-like pool area, recreation room and lightning fast internet service! We look forward to another visit to this mini-palace soon.
