Spacious, well appointed, gorgeous Mountain View’s

My family’s favorite home that we ever rented for a vacation! Seems impossible but even more stunning in person. The home has ample parking, great kitchen, super clean, nice furniture and beds and very quiet. Woke up each morning to paradise. We will return.
Russell C.May 2022
House was very nice. In the future, you need to tell renters about the gate, and how to get thru it, when you arrive. We finally figured out that the garage remote was the same for the gate, but had no clue until we turned over the remote. It was also impossible to park a rental in the garage, as there is zero tolerance in the driveway. We couldn’t afford the damage a rented vehicle.
Hi, Russell! We apologize for the difficulties you encountered with the gate and driveway. In our notes provided to our guests we mention the need to temporarily park street-side in order to gain access through the gate until you have the remote. It is true that the driveway to the garage is narrow, but guests can park inside the gate to the right of the pool area. Thank you!

The pool, and nearby hiking trail, and the daily 3:00 pm shade when the sun goes behind the rock ridge across the street - such a relief on hot sunny days.
Regina P.Feb 2022
This house was comfortable, but not set up for 8 people. The sofa bed was so shot you could not sleep on it. The pool was really nice but we ask it to be heated for the 3 days we were there but only heated for one. The thermometer always read that the pool was at 82 but if you looked at it, it was broken.
Hi Regina, thank you for your review. We hope you enjoyed your stay! We apologize for the issue with the pool heat during your stay, we have notified our local manager who will address any issues. We have also repaired the sofa bed and are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. We hope to host you for another stay in the future!

This is a spacious, well appointed house. Nice artwork and furniture. Good location right across from the Fred Wolff nature trail. Nice pool. Two things we didn't like : the EXORBITANT cost to heat the pool -- $500 for one week? This seems out of line. Also -- I was bitten MANY TIMES BY mosquitoes. The owners need to let their pest control know about this. They were out in the day time. Any time you were in the shade they started biting.
Hi Kathryn! We thank you for your fantastic feedback, as it was our pleasure to host you and your family. We are thrilled and pleased to learn you enjoyed your stay and will notify our local manager of the pesky mosquitos in the area. We look forward to hosting you again!
Andy M.Aug 2021
A perfect getaway to celebrate three birthdays with our friends! The home is well appointed, spacious, and had everything we needed. An added bonus was the walking trails that are available right across the street! Easy access into the mountains, or town.
Jeff J.Jul 2021
The house was clean and tidy, everything worked as it should. No issues or complaints, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book again.
Heather B.Jun 2021
We loved the ambiance of the home. It was a great space for our group of 4 friends escaping from LA for the weekend. The pool and accommodations were exactly what we needed. The place was clean and well-stocked.
Roger R.Jun 2021
The highlights of this home are the patio/pool area and the large main living space. If booking, keep in mind you cannot play music outdoors and you need to keep your voices down. Rental properties in this area are not popular with the neighbors.
There is a garage you can park in but the driveway is very narrow so it is difficult to use with larger vehicles.
Good to know, Vacasa is strict with check -in times and you will not receive the information to check in until a few minutes before the time. Also, the pool is serviced on Tuesday and Thursday and you will have to wait 2 hours to use the pool after chemicals are put in.
We did enjoy our day and a half at this home.
Gisela L.Jun 2021
Loved the view from the pool! Great Home and has everything and better then a hotel.
Amy W.May 2021
Great place to enjoy a couple nights with the family. Plenty of lounging space and bedrooms. Lovely little pool.
Regina B.Apr 2021
First off, Tom with the management company gave us the wrong code to get into the place and when we called to get the right one, the girl sent the same one so it took us about an hour after we arrived to finally get the right code! This place is in need some updating for the price you pay! The toilets were loose from the walls, two of the showers had poor shower heads, when we moved any furniture so we could play games or visit there was dirt underneath everything! Sam the maintenance man was quick to respond but we spent so much time calling about problems that we lost time being able to enjoy our vacation! We were very disappointed in the location - the description made it sound like it was convenient to walk everywhere but we didn’t find it to be that way.
Regina, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are truly sorry to hear about the unfortunate issues affecting your stay. Please know this is not the standard grade of presentation that we provide, and that we take this feedback seriously. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice that is most suitable for their needs.

We greatly appreciate you bringing this to our attention, as this helps us to improve the quality of experiences we provide for our future guests. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly relaxing vacation experience in the future.
Dianne P.Apr 2021
Worked perfectly for our group. The access to walking paths, the pool and hot tub and the general flow of the casita make for an enjoyable experience for everyone. Thanks.
ANGIE B.Mar 2021
We loved the view from this rental along with the walking path right across the street. The street that it is on is also a relatively quiet street which is also a big plus. We also are a big fan of having your indoor space spill out to your outdoor space creating this wonderful total living area. The pool and spa made it one complete package.
Annette C.Mar 2021
This property was a nice getaway for 3 couples. The beds were comfy and every room having their own bathroom was convenient. The kitchen was large and open to commune / cook. Most of the time was spent poolside and with the built in grill. We had an issue with the pool being ready when we arrived and VACASA was very helpful, attentive and professional. We even received a welcome call the day after arriving to check in on our stay. High marks for their management services. The reason for the 4 stars is for 2 reasons 1)everyone in our party reacted terribly to the salt water pool. Our skin, was ashy, rashy and itched for days after our visit. It was unpleasant. 2) the host book for visitors was a little condescending and rude. Maybe they have had difficult visits in the past but their lack of “accommodating” descriptions of the amenities and property limitations was a distasteful. Example “each room has smart TVs but we don’t have streaming services. We assume if you do, you know how to sign into your own account”. 1 roll of TP was left for each bathroom. If we used more than the accommodation we needed to purchase our own. Which was stated in the book. It was an odd and a little off putting. La Quinta was a charming little town and we will visit the area again.
Hi, Annette! We appreciate you letting us know about your stay. We will have the pool looked into to see if it could have caused any irritation to your skin. We do apologize about the book you mentioned and will be sure to have it removed or updated. Housekeeping has been reminded to leave two additional rolls of toilet paper under the sink. Thank you!
Steve G.Feb 2021
This was an awesome place to stay! The layout was magnificent along with the pool spa and Mountain View’s. If the owner was interested in selling we would be interested in buying this property. Vacasa made it very easy for us to check in and out as well! Thumbs up!
Joseph M.Sep 2020
We had the most wonderful time for our 1 year wedding anniversary and would definitely come back to stay again!
Melissa M.Aug 2020
We were pleasantly delighted at how clean, quiet, spacious and minimal this home is! We loved the bedrooms and kitchen was a dream to cook in. Ac worked so well keeping us cool. We spent most of our time in the pool and BBQ area. Can't wait to book again!
Jannette R.Aug 2020
This house was beautiful and the view was AMAZING! My family especially the kids enjoyed the pool. The inside of the house was clean and beautiful. We will definitely come back again.
Robert F.Aug 2020
Very spacious house and pool was great size. Not sure if the lack of supplies was due to covid but there was no foil or storage bags for cooking.

We had an awesome stay and would definitely stay here again! The homes layout was perfect for 2 families with a large master in the front and 2 beds/2 baths in the back of the home. The home was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. The only thing I would change in the charge for heating the jacuzzi. My mind was blown knowing you have to pay $90 per day for 3 days so $270 just to have a hot jacuzzi in the evenings. I understand it is expensive to operate but there has to be a better option than that by having it on a timer or something so people don’t take advantage of it. Other than that, highly recommend!
ROCIO G.Jun 2020

Our whole family had so much fun, the kids loved the pool. The house was clean and big enough for all of us. The view was incredible, we will be back again.
Adam G.Jun 2019
The house was very spacious and the view of the Santa Rosa mountains were amazing. Very clean and well maintained. The only thing I could think of was besides the master the other bedrooms did not have TVs. Great! Great! Great! 4.7 Stars
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Adam! We appreciate your feedback and we definitely want to make sure we are doing everything possible to make sure our guests enjoy their stay. We are happy to report that a third TV has been added to the home in the bedroom adjacent to the basketball court. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
HAILEY H.Apr 2019

Teresea R.Dec 2018
Fantastic experience from start to finish! A truly enchanting desert home. Stylish, peaceful, immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable and luxurious too. Just love the home’s layout for maximum privacy and space. The views are honestly to die for
and we loved being close to historic Old Town and the walking trails. Already planning our next visit to this little slice of paradise!
Victor A.Dec 2018
We loved our stay at Hacienda Montezuma. Fantastic in a great location across from nature trail with awesome views.
Everything was great, beautiful and relaxing pool area, luxurious bedding, well equipped and spacious kitchen and living areas.
Close to everything, and still very private.
