Lovely stay at the Desert Gem…. Beautiful spacious home , decor amazing, views amazing and very peaceful and private. I wanted peace and tranquility, a pool and spa and to relax. This home met all expectations.

julie a. February 2, 2022

Such a beautiful home!!! We visit La Quinta multiple times a year, and this is by far one of the best rentals yet! I would highly recommend! 👍

Keegan F. February 2, 2022

Your family will love this property. It is spacious, bright and fun. There's a great wading pool that the kiddos will enjoy too. Have a great trip!

Lindsi H. February 2, 2022

The perfect getaway for a group of moms! The house was perfect and so relaxing!! Very well stocked kitchen and all the amenities you would ever need!

Yadira H. February 2, 2022

This home exceeded our expectations! It’s on in an awesome gated community right on a beautiful golf course. The house is extremely big, clean and has beautiful touches. There were 5 couples and it was perfect for all 10 of us. Plenty of cook ware, glasses, utensils; etc. we will definitely book this house again when we return! ;)

Ali A. February 2, 2022

The house and all the amenities were great. We greatly enjoyed the pool and outdoor BBQ for most of our stay! Lots of board games, pool table, and ping pong table were also available for entertainment. We had a great time!

Scott R. February 2, 2022

Wonderful house in La Quinta. We loved staying at the home. Everything was exactly as shown in AirBnB. Plenty of room, great salt water pool. Clean and stylish decor. Absolutely recommend this Desert Gem.

Desert Gem

Great property for a Holiday Getaway.

Sabrina B. October 20, 2021

Was Awesome!

We have stayed at numerous vacation rentals over the years but we were excited to try this one. We had 3 kids 5 and under + 4 adults. There was PLENTY of room for everyone. Each room was a great size. One of the pack and plays fit great in this huge walk in closet in the master, which was awesome to keep baby less distracted. The amenities were TOP notch and the entertaining space was great. All of the kids went to bed and the adults could still be loud (indoors), watch tv, play music (indoors), and no children could hear us! THAT IS KEY!

Trista S. August 10, 2021

Desert Gem... An Absolute Gem!

We loved our stay in La Quinta at the Desert Gem! Everything about this house was spectacular from the views to the decor, and of course all of the beautiful Gems in the house!! Jessica from Desert Luxury Estates is always so helpful prior to booking as well as during our stay! Jan is an amazing host and we cannot thank her enough for always accommodating my family and making our stay wonderful each time! Just another beautiful home we have enjoyed staying in, and we can't wait for the next trip!! Highly recommend Desert Luxury Estates!

Stephanie C. June 15, 2021

The vacation home was amazing. The pictures in the site, although beautiful, do not do it justice.

Brittney C. June 15, 2021

Our stay at Desert Gem from 5/27-5/30/21 was great. We had a group of 10 staying for my 40th birthday and everyone was more than satisfied with the accommodations. The home had everything that we needed. From a fully supplied laundry room and kitchen to beach towels poolside! There was nothing that we needed that we couldn't find. The only difficulty we had was figuring out how to open the glass doors that lead out to the pool. Unfortunately while we were there the neighborhood had a power outage. We were without power for about 2 hours. That was no fault of the property owners so I'll still give 5 stars! Great time, lovely home and an overall great experience. I would highly recommend a stay there and I would return in the future. Oh...I have to mention that we had excellent customer service with Desert Luxury Estates when reaching out about any questions and concerns. We were arriving a bit early and they granted us access to the home 1 hour ahead of our scheduled time! Thanks DLE!!

Family getaway

Such a great location for a family getaway. Beautiful property, well maintained and comfortable. Will definitely visit this one again!

Rob And Gina H. February 23, 2021

Ideal Getaway house for family or couples!

This home is perfect- huge great room for gatherings with a perfectly stocked kitchen and bar area that opens to the outside entertaining, pool area. Each bedroom has a king bed and private bath. The master bedroom suite is fantastic. Our family had a wonderful time here and will definitely come back.

Daniel G. February 2, 2021

A beautiful and comfortable home

The property was spacious, immaculately clean with ample bedrooms for our family. Space to gather and chill. Would definitely stay here again.

Julie H. December 2, 2020

Beautiful Desert Gem

This home is gorgeous!! It is the perfect getaway for a group of couples, girls weekend or even a family vacay. The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook while away from home. The kitchen and living room open up to an amazing backyard. The pool and spa are easy to use and were heated to a perfect temperature. The home has 3 bedrooms inside the main house each with its own bathroom. There is also a casita just inside the front gate with 2 bedrooms and a jack and Jill bathroom.

Kerry C. December 2, 2020

Wonderful Stay

What a great house for large or smaller groups. The home is very open and airy. Every morning we would open the wall of nano windows that lead out to the pool area and enjoyed the spectacular view. Kitchen is well equiped, bedrooms are spacious with lots of privacy and actual beds are very comfortable. Would highly recommend this property and hope to come back soon.

Made our own Stagecoach!

With Stagecoach being cancelled a group of friends and I made our own weekend of it and had such a great time relaxing and golfing and listening to country while we drink and have some pool time! Great community and great house and everyone involved was great and professional! Will definitely use this company again, thank you!!

Crista M. October 13, 2020

Beautiful house with everything you need for a delightful vacation. We had a wonderful time!

Angela G. October 13, 2020

Palm Springs Gem is a real Gem!

We enjoyed the house and surroundings very much. It was just like the picture and it was very roomy for all of us and also very clean. It was nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Everything was in working order and I would love to stay there again.

Raymond G. September 29, 2020

The house is huge and beautiful! Had an amazing stay.

Darian L. September 23, 2020


It was literally perfection! Clean, user friendly.. the best vacation home will stay again!

Drew P. August 7, 2020

A Shelter in Place Dream!

We stayed at Desert Gem for a month to get out of Los Angeles and enjoy some pool, sunshine and family time. This home is as beautiful as the pictures depict and even more spacious. The home is well appointed with everything you could possibly need and super comfortable and indestructible for our family of six. The adjacent attached casita became home to visiting guests who are part of our "quaranteam," making it feel like a true vacation. We loved how the kitchen and family room opened up to the pool, creating a large community space for everyone to spread out while enjoying each other's company and also allowing mom to keep an eye on the swimming kiddos while preparing snacks and meals. The hosts were super accommodating too. We look forward to returning in the future!

Andre K. August 6, 2020

Amazing Property !

Truly a gem in the desert, we stayed for 3 nights and the home was stocked with everything we needed. All the beds are king size and super comfortable. Lots of towels and floats for the pool. Smart tv for entertainment, lots of board games and card games to entertain. Great floor plan, everything is visible if you have kids and have to monitor them running around. The pool was great because of the shallow area for the little ones to play in or adults to just sit on the chair and relax. The outside lounge chairs also had 3 big umbrellas that adjust to block the sun. Beautiful views of the golf coarse but private so no one can really look in the back yard. Tim and the team at DLE delivered once again. We will continue to do business with them just because of the convenience and service we receive every time we book through them. Thank again for making our Son's first birthday special!

Tadashi B. June 23, 2020

Beautiful house

The house was amazing it was clean, spacious, and overall an amazing experience. The pool and hot tub was amazing.

Ameen B. June 23, 2020

If you're looking for an amazing place to stay in La Quinta/Palm Springs area then look no further this is the perfect home! Where do I begin! Every single bed was so comfortable, my guests couldn't stop raving about their beds. The location of the home is perfect with golf course views. The host/staff at Desert Luxury were very accommodating to all of our needs and requests. We felt like we were home at one of own properties. The amenities were great! The home was nicely furnished with personal touches of decor where you just didn't want to leave. We stayed at the house the entire time. The appliances are top of the line! Wolf appliances. Tim, Jessica & Team were there for me 24/7 when I needed them for anything and made sure that I was happy. If you want to get away or enjoy time with family/friends this is truly a Gem in the desert and I promise you that you will not be disappointed. There isn't a hotel or resort that I could say is nicer than this property. Many of my friends and family asked me about the property as I was sharing pictures and videos and they're looking to book this property for a trip.

Dylan F. June 10, 2020

Great place to stay. Beautiful home.

Betsy R. June 6, 2020

Perfect getaway!

We booked a few nights at the Desert Gem at the end of the quarantine in an effort to just get away for a few days. It was just what we needed and the accommodations were perfect. The house was lovely, spacious, clean and well appointed with all the amenities. We were there with 7 teenagers so it says a lot that everyone felt like they had plenty of their own space! Each of the bedrooms has a king bed and all (except the casita) have their own bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked which was great for us since we cooked in every night. We brought some games but they also had a great selection available. The property mgmt company as well as the owner were SUPER responsive and helpful with whatever we needed. We will definitely try to stay here again!

We recently were lucky enough to spend a full month at this amazing home on the golf course. It comfortable housed my family which included 8 people and 2 dogs. The home was very clean, well laid out and nicely decorated. I would have to say the view of the mountains and golf coarse had to be my favorite part creating a perfect place to relax and have a margarita. All 5 of my kids ranging from 3-15 had a blast in the well designed pool/spa which was kept at a perfect temp where they never got cold. It was so warm my 3 year old averaged over 4.5 hours a day in the pool and learned how to swim. Since CA had a "Shelter in Place" order the golf coarse was closed but running daily I got to enjoy the beauty of all the holes. It truly looks like the perfect place for a golf vacation! I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting perfect sunny weather and who loves to golf and hike. It was very family friendly including our furry friends. To top it off the owners were over the top helpful and probably one of the nicer couples I have met. They jumped on any maintenance problems that came up and were always very responsive to any request we had. A special thank you to Jerry and Jan for making our time at the Desert Gem a special experience in a time of so uncertainty.

Claudine G. April 21, 2020

This house was amazing, perfect place for our family reunion. Gorgeous, spacious, well stocked and full of games to play like pool, ping pong etc. The beds were very comfortable, everyone had wonderful sleeps!

Kyle M. April 21, 2020


Great property with solid furniture. Not cheap rental stuff that you get in some units. Highly recommended!

Hilary P. April 21, 2020

Amazing Property!

We had a great time at this property. The check-in process was very easy and the house was even more spectacular than in the photos. Would definitely stay again!

Ilsa W. April 20, 2020

This home was spotless! The kitchen was well stocked and a joy to cook in. The neighborhood was quiet, the pool/jacuzzi inviting, the view was stunning, it was fun to have a pool table and ping pong table and it was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Just a great house!

Al M. February 24, 2020

Everything you could want in a vacation rental

Desert Gem is well named and accommodated our group of 4 couples very nicely. Layout, location and amenities were just what we were looking for to enjoy a long weekend together.

Scott Y. January 6, 2020

Great house

We had 3 families spend the week after Xmas there. Great pool and hot tub, were kept hot the whole we were there. Can't wait to go again.

Great place- would rent it again!

Tiffany R. September 3, 2019

Thank you for making this home so peaceful, the touches of large gemstones and shakra pieces ensured calmness and everything I wanted for my mothers 60th birthday getaway experience. I have an 8 month old and the host made sure to leave the play prn and high chair for me. My family enjoyed all this home had to offer, the smart TVs were enjoyed by the teens, the kitchen was the hub for food and entertainment for all 15 of us (mostly kids) . My mother had the pleasure to sleep in the master and that is a true suite. The batheoom was magnificent. Thank you we truly enjoyed our stay.

Alice W. September 3, 2019

Beautiful as well as spacious home with an amazing kitchen and pool. The pool and backyard has a lovely view of the golf course - it looked amazing during sunset! There were plenty of towels provided (bath and pool towels) and all the bathrooms were super clean. The beds were all extremely comfortable too. The host was very easy to communicate with and provided detailed instructions for check-in and check out. Highly recommend this home!

Ashley T. September 3, 2019

This house was so beautiful! A lot bigger than what it seems in photos. I went with some of my closest girls for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect spot. Extremely clean and whenever I had any questions, They responded within minutes to help me. We are going back again in a few months after the wedding!

Moises A. June 26, 2019


It was fantastic, we plan to come and stay soon!

Jennifer H. June 26, 2019

Definitely a home away from home. Had all the amenities from the inside to the outside. Backyard was perfect for sun/shade. Quick response from host. Who was very pleasant and never made you feel like you were bothering them. Hope to stay with them again.

Becky M. June 4, 2019

A True Gem

We had a wonderful weekend here in this beautiful home. All the adults and kids really enjoyed our stay. The furnishings and supplies the house was stocked with were of great quality. The rooms were quiet so the adults were able to stay up and hang out in the living room without having to be quiet for the sleeping kids. Definitely a top of the tier rental in our experience of renting homes for the past 10 years.

Lanette N. May 21, 2019

Great house!!

What an amazing house! Beautifully decorated and spacious and clean! We had a large group and it never felt crowded. The backyard was a fabulous place to relax and enjoy guests. Would definitely recommend this house and hopefully will be back to enjoy.

Elyssa S. May 9, 2019

Gorgeous! Perfect for bachelorette weekend with a group of girls. There were 9 of us and there was so much space.

Rachael H. May 9, 2019

Expect to be wow’d by this amazing location. Wonderful for an extended stay or a weekend getaway. This house is very luxe with every detail considered. The host and concierge were responsive throughout our stay to answer questions or arrange activities.

Robert H. April 4, 2019

Stayed as 2 families of 5. More than enough room. Wonderful home. Exactly as described (or better). Would highly recommend and we will be back.

Doug G. March 20, 2019

The home was good. Accommodated our family well. Didn't like the sand pile of a golf course and the dust it created in the pool area and outdoor living space.

Carole L. March 6, 2019

The house have all amenities necessary to spend a confortable moment in la Quinta. It was perfect.

Michele T. March 6, 2019
