Casa de Martinez is a timeless casita property located in Historic La Quinta Cove. Originally constructed in 1957, every effort has been made to preserve the authenticity and romantic character of this classic 2 casita residence. Available as a single rental, guest privacy is guaranteed on gated grounds.

Built on a spacious 10,000 sq ft lot, Casa de Martinez combines original architecture & landscaping with modern comfort & convenience. With respect to building of the period, both casitas are moderate in size, but pack considerable amenity punch. Each maintains unique living and patio areas while sharing spectacular common grounds, pool and spa.

Both casitas host beautiful kitchens with European style cabinetry, granite counters and stainless appliances. Each well equipped with necessary cooking and dining ware- including Keurig brewers and cartridges. Tastefully furnished dining/ living rooms epitomize the desert resort lifestyle reminiscent of earlier years. Creature comforts abound, from comfy throws to arty coffee table books. In addition, casita 2 showcases a stunning, hand-built fireplace.

Each casita features a single, beautifully appointed bedroom with king size pillow top, designer linens, furnishings and spacious mirrored wardrobes. To describe the settings as comfortable would be an understatement. If additional sleeping space is needed, both living room couches convert into queen sized pullouts.

As with the bedrooms, each casita hosts a beautiful bathroom reflective of original configuration with hardwood floors, pedestal sinks and stunning Mexican tiled bathing areas. Casita 1 features a benched 2 person shower. Casita 2, a shower/ tub combo. Each are stocked with quality towels, toiletries and hair dryers.

Casa de Martinez is home entertainment friendly. Each features dedicated Wi-Fi, Cable TV, 55” UHD flat screen, Apple TV, iPad, Amazon Echo and Bose Bluetooth sound systems. This may be Old Town La Quinta, but we draw the line when it comes to must have amenities!

Placing an equal emphasis on outdoor entertaining, each casita features a spacious patio with lighted covers, dining tables and stainless BBQ’s. In addition, casita 1 sports a fire pit with ample seating. The property has beautifully landscaped grounds with a pool and spa, which are shared.

The laundry is located inside casita 2 and boasts a large capacity washer, dryer and related supplies. An iron and ironing board are provided as well. In regards to parking, there is a covered carport for 2 vehicles, with space in the drive for another 2.

For guests desiring fresh air activities, the Fred Wolff Bear Creek Nature Preserve is a short walk away. The majestic Santa Rosa Mountains are literally in the back yard. Children and adults alike enjoy exploring the natural beauty of the area.

Old Town is a 5 minute drive and home to a number of boutique stores, restaurants and an exceptional coffeehouse. The world famous La Quinta Resort is another 5 minutes. Its architecture, grounds, shopping, dining, spa and golf amenities make it a “must do” experience. Desiring even more shopping, dining and entertainment? El Paseo in Palm Desert is a mere 20 minutes away.

More Info

BEAUTIFUL property and landscaping

Date of Stay:

This place is absolutely amazing. It's exactly what I wanted and more. BEAUTIFUL property and landscaping. Super clean and sincerely felt far away yet close to town. The owners really put a lot of love and attention into this property and it really felt like home away from home. I will definitely be back as well as check out their other properties in the future.

Having two little houses was wonderful!

Date of Stay:

Having two little houses was wonderful! We were able to be together, and yet had privacy. Even though it was extremely hot during our stay we had a great time, and enjoyed the pool very much! We found several fun indoor (air conditioned!) activities to do with the kids during the day that were very close by and affordable.

Charming retreat

Date of Stay:

The property was lovely and quiet. You felt like you were in a different world. Also, the beds were insanely comfortable. We had all the things these rentals provided with a few surprises, i.e. Bikes and a ping pong table! We never needed to leave our casita for anything (also there are plenty of markets and restaurant very close by). I would highly recommend this space. It's perfect.

Good times....

Date of Stay:

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Martinez. The design of the property is well thought out and the management team is really easy to work with. Once you are in the gates of the property you really do feel the sense of being in a desert oasis...

Amazing gem of a place!

Date of Stay:

Our family loved staying here and can't wait to go back. So comfortable and beautifully appointed. Perfect for our small family with two kids. Excellent communication with the owners and you literally have everything you could need. Thanks for a great vacation!

La Quinta Oasis- a Hidden Gem

Date of Stay:

A perfect place for two couples or a small family. Everything was precisely as shown in the pictures and very well maintained. Easy to see that pains were taken to restore the casita look of the 1930's. Evening dinners on the patio were memorable for the peacefulness and beauty of the grounds. A definite return is in order for us.

Gorgeous and relaxing!

Date of Stay:

Great time in this lovely space. Perfectly maintained and situated.

Would love to stay again!

Date of Stay:

Had an amazing time! Beautiful!

Great stay!

Date of Stay:

Great for two professionals traveling together but wanting space at night ! Super close to town, very clean, very nicely furnished with quality bedding/sheets and towels. Nice patios to hang out on and excellent service checking in and out.

Dog friendly desert oasis

Date of Stay:

We had a triathlon this weekend and were thrilled to find this adorable bungalow that was dog friendly. Our cockapoo and wheaten terrier had a ball in the fenced in front yard. We didn't take advantage of the spa, pool, or firepit but were impressed with everything this place has to offer. Kitchen is well stocked and I am so pleased they had nice plates and pots. I hate going to vrbos where they only have IKEA stuff. We would highly recommend this place to anyone. We only used one casita but I love the concept of having two separate living areas!!

We loved the property

Date of Stay:

I first want to say that dealing with Kim was a complete joy. She is so accommodating , and delivered everything that we needed. She is very easy to reach and made our stay such a pleasure. We love the property , the pool and jacuzzi are amazing. Everything is controlled from the iPad and there are countless amenities. They have thought of everything. We cooked one of the nights and everything a cook needs is in the brand new kitchen. It was a tiny slice of heaven and I can't wait to come back and spend more time by the pool. This property is well manicured and every detail was polished and taken care of. The bed was very comfortable along with the sofa and the outside furniture. Thank you Kim for Being such a kind hostess and we can't express enough how much we enjoyed your property.

Absolutely stunning and couldn't ask for more!!

Date of Stay:

This property was absolutely perfect for our family of five (plus friends with a party of four)! Kim was very quick to respond and every single detail was taken care of. Even down to the bathroom toiletries that I forgot! I honestly don't have one complaint! We stayed for four days and didn't leave the property once! The kids are already asking when we're coming back. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful casitas and property!!!

Totally Enjoyable

Date of Stay:

Although this must have been the hottest week in La Quinta, we had a marvelous time at Casa Martinez. Full accommodations, very relaxed environment, fun and refreshing pool; it was a great place to rest and reset and enjoy the family. Thanks again - we had a wonderful time.

Fun and Relaxing

Date of Stay:

This was my family's first vacation rental and thanks to Kim, it was a wonderful experience! The property has something for everybody, from kids (pool and games) to seniors (places to lounge and walk the beautiful grounds) to dogs (plenty of space to explore). The casitas were unique and charming. If you love dining and spending time outdoors like us, this house is perfect!


Date of Stay:

My husband and I recently stayed here with our 14 month old son! The casitas were cozy, clean, very well stocked, and beautifully decorated. Despite the triple digit heat, our stay was very pleasant! Everything (keys, gate opener, etc.) was exactly where Katherine said we would find it. The pool was clean and perfect to lounge in to escape the sweltering desert heat! Our communication with Katherine was quick, clear, and simple! Definitely enjoyed our stay! Highly recommend!

Quick getaway that seemed a world away

Date of Stay:

Casitas de Martinez was a gem in the desert heat (especially in July) but we didn't mind at all! Our party consisted of a family of four, a set of grandparents and 3 dogs. The fact that the place was enclosed made it ideal for our 3 large pups to run around. The separate Casitas also allowed for some privacy for the grandparents. However it ended up that the kids ended up staying in the bigger Casita with the grandparents (pullout queen/full sofa in living room) and we ended up in the smaller casita with the dogs...perfect! It was a little resort with our own private pool! Kim, the owner was extremely helpful & responsive to our every need & we couldn't ask for more. Thank you Kim!

Amazing, amazing, amazing

Date of Stay:

I've been renting on VRBO for 5 years now and I have to say that this place was the absolute best place that I have stayed in so far. Kim was amazing and very easy to work with and she has more properties that I am going to check out in the near future. Casa Martinez was fully stocked with all of the supplies that one would need when they are going out of town. It was spacious and very clean and for the price I promise you you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Kim for making my Birthday weekend a memorable one.

Beautiful property!!

Date of Stay:

Both casitas were beautiful and very well stocked. We had a wonderful time dispite the 122 degree weekend that we picked to go out on. The pool and Jacuzzi are both awesome. We will definitely return.

Adorable oasis for both fun and relaxation

Date of Stay:

We loved hanging out at the pool, letting our dog run his energy out and then retreating from the heat into the cozy and cool comfort of the casita. We truly enjoyed it. The owners thought of everything we might need during our stay. The bed, the pillows, the dishes...everything was thoughtfully chosen to add to the ambiance.

Gorgeous Spanish style retreat!

Date of Stay:

We spent a long weekend here with friends for my birthday. Casa Martinez completely lives up to its online description. This property is bursting with character and charm. We were all captivated by the architecture and design throughout the homes and garden. Both casitas were clean and very well appointed. The grounds are spacious and very well maintained. We spent the majority of the time lounging by the saltwater pool, which is amazing! Even though it felt like we were far away from everything, stores, dinning and shopping were all close. Both Jeff and Kim were available to answer any questions we had. Casa Martinez will not disappoint!!! I am looking forward to a second trip to this stellar desert vacation home.

Felt like a private resort get away!

Date of Stay:

My girlfriend and I were looking for a private get away to celebrate her birthday with close friends out in Palm Dessert. We saw the amazing pictures of Casa de Martinez on the site and thought this would be the perfect place! As we approached the compound it blew us away how beautiful and stunning the place looked like in person! From the upgraded amenities, details inside and out, the amazing pool (We probably spent about 8 hours in it each day) to the private resort like feel...we all had the time of our lives! We loved this place so much we are already planning our next trip back! We highly recommend this dessert oasis to anyone looking for private get away with friends, family or your significant other.

Stunning Oasis!

Date of Stay:

Wow! This beautiful property is so unique and charming! Sometimes we felt like we were in Italy at our own private Villa yet we were right in the middle of beautiful La Quinta! From the minute we arrived we were in love with this place! The grounds are very well manicured and the 2 casitas are as charming inside as they are outside! The detail and decor was very fitting and comfortable! We truly did not find anything that could be improved upon! We usually go out and do the tourist things when we are in the desert and go out to restaurants but we found ourselves hardly venturing out of the grounds because we felt so good being home! The casitas are perfect for 2 couples and maybe a couple of kiddos. There is lots of privacy at this property and the pool is the perfect size! The patio areas are perfect for entertaining and we also had fun games to play in the yard and great pool rafts. We will definitely come back and stay at this outstanding oasis! The owners are also super kind and helpful and they definitely know how to treat their guests! Our favorite restaurant for breakfast is Keedy's in Palm Desert! Delicious!! We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an incredibly quaint and private retreat!

Beautiful and unique property in La Quinta

Date of Stay:

Our family had the best few days staying at Casa Martinez. Our kids (and dog) loved exploring the property, swimming in the pool, and making s'mores by the fire pit. The property is very private and enclosed and has everything you need for a fab vacation. We highly recommend for anyone looking for a private, quiet getaway in Palm Desert. We will definitely be back!

Blown away by the details and amenities it offered

Date of Stay:

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely place. Kim was an excellent host who communicated genuinely and graciously. The place was spectacular - I was blown away by the details and amenities it offered. From the 2 well put together casitas to the pool and the fire pit, there were countless activities that you can do that will make you forget about time. My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this casita and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a desert getaway. Hope to be back soon!

Oasis in the desert

Date of Stay:

This property is simply stunning! The 2 casitas are perfect for families or couples who can share an amazing outdoor space while having the privacy of individual living spaces. Each casita is stocked with everything you would need and the attention to detail is evident in every aspect. Each unit has it's own fully stocked kitchen and outdoor patio with barbecue. There's a beautiful pool and spa which sit amongst a perfectly landscaped yard. The location is wonderful and very near old town La Quinta, yet has a completely private feel to it, once behind the gate. We spent most of our time outside and our dogs loved the yard as much as we did. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and the owner Kim was very easy to work with. You can book this property with confidence. trust me you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to see their other California properties. Thanks again for a wonderful week Kim!

Couples Retreat!

Date of Stay:

Spent the holiday weekend with close friends. Each casita was beautifully furnished and well-maintained; both ready to welcome guests. The surrounding environment remained peaceful even throughout the busy holiday season. A perfect getaway to gain some seclusion and totally safe with the property's electric gate! I really hope to return again with friends and family to hike the surrounding desert terrain and enjoy the charming old La Quinta town. :)

Great weekend family trip

Date of Stay:

Spent the weekend with my family and the property was perfect. With the 2 separate guest houses it worked great. My parents had their own place to hang out, they did not have to worry about us waking them up because we had our own separate house. Each place was stocked full kitchens and family rooms, games, pool floats, separate bbq's. The whole property is surrounded and had an electric gate for total privacy. Best of all the owner Kim allowed us to bring our dog. We look forward to coming back again soon.


Date of Stay:

Stating upfront that we have vacationed at 3 other properties owned by this host and have had flawless experiences at each. They are all beautiful and come complete with everything needed except a stocked refrigerator. Regarding Casa Martinez, it has 2 casitas, which are similar to 1 bedroom apartments, for the price of a single rental. Great for 2 couples wanting to share a vacation in their own space. Each is an exceptional blend of traditional and modern. The property is as advertised. Huge gated lot, authentic architecture, fantastic landscaping and pool. Wrapping this up, the most memorable experience had was around the fire pit at night under the most incredible landscaping lighting we have ever experienced. You will love it!
