We reserved a weekend stay with a group of 10 in August. The size the house for the group was perfect, but the pictures were/are misleading. The house was not clean, refrigerator did not work, there was no toilet paper, TV in bedroom with "Netflix" did not work, the game room (no longer posted in pictures) was too hot to bother with, the pool temperature was 93 degrees, the golf cart had a flat tire, the bikes had flat tires, and the microwave worked one time.
This was our first time in La Quinta and the overall area and golf course was great! The views from the home were beautiful and the property location was right on the golf course.
Sadly, the house had an odd smell. Maybe it was the detergent choice or the cleaning supplies used before we got there? There were cobwebs and scuffs on the wall. The carpets were in really bad shape and the inside of the kitchen cabinets were dirty. We had to wash every dish before we used it. We also did a load of laundry and found a very large amount of lint on the trap - total fire hazard! Thankfully, the bathrooms were semi-clean, but nowhere near the amount of towels shown in the picture. Refrigerator was sticky and had left over food from the previous renters.
The refrigerator was not cool at all. We sent a message and we were contacted immediately, but the repair person was scheduled for 3 PM the next day. Thankfully, we had ice to keep the food that we just bought cold. The supposed "quick fix" was not a fix at all and I am sure they just showed up to pretend to attempt to fix the problem. They couldn't move forward without a consent from the owner nor brought the appropriate tools.
We had to contact the owner and manager of the house, because there was one roll of toilet paper. They had it delivered the next morning around 9:30 AM. Not a fun thing to ration.
The pool was so hot, given the weather we kind of understood, but it was also a weird green color. Not as clear as pictured. The outside area was a MESS. Old torn pool toys left to cook in the sun and the furniture was in terrible shape.
Overall, I believe this house just needs a good cleaning and some updated appliances. We paid a good amount of money to stay here and felt as if the amenities did not live up to the amount. Living out of coolers and not having toilet paper felt like a few steps above camping. Although not to be too harsh - the air conditioning was wonderful and worked perfectly. I wouldn't stay at this house again.
