La Quinta Cove has recently gone through the transformation of new home construction as well as upgrading by current homeowners. This undertaking has enhanced these desert neighborhoods and improved property values; while at the same time, preserving Old California charm and beauty. A sense of community like no other is found here, with a variety of entry level homes and multimillion-dollar estates.
One of the interesting things about La Quinta Cove comes from Hollywood’s early attraction to the desert. About twenty five historic casitas were built here from 1936 to 1942. They were inspired by the Spanish architecture of the La Quinta Hotel with is white stucco walls and red clay roofs. Many of these casitas were purchased by entrepreneurs and celebrities.
La Quinta Cove has the finest Santa Rosa Mountain views and its dark sky ordinance rewards residents with spectacular starry nights. The inspiration of this community attracts many artists, writers, designers, and musicians. There is also easy access to city parks, mountain trails, and the Fred Wolff Bear Creek Nature Preserve.
La Quinta is serviced by the Imperial Irrigation District for the lowest utility rates in the valley. And many of the improvements have included energy conservation features. Many homes have open floor plans and updated granite, custom-made blinds, and kitchen appliances. Private pools are a refreshing escape from the Southern California heat and there is plenty of room for outdoor barbecuing.
Its youngest residents go to excellent schools in the Desert Sands Unified School District. And there are many restaurants and shops within minutes at Old Town La Quinta. A seemingly endless number of restaurants are available with night time entertainment. Amenities include the SilverRock, Arnold Palmer’s municipal golf course, and the quaint La Quinta library. And the La Quinta Resort and Spa, a world renown vacation spot, is also nearby.
