One of the oldest resorts in the Coachella Valley, La Quinta combines old-school glamour with modern luxuries. It was born in 1926 when Walter Morgan established the La Quinta Resort, which quickly became a popular hideaway for A-listers looking for a secluded hideaway. A century later, it may no longer be much of a secret, but it has managed to hold onto its celebrity status. Visitors head here for world-class golfing, fine dining and some of the state’s best hikes along the soaring Santa Rosa mountains. While you could opt for a hotel, one of the best ways to experience the resort city is at one of its many vacation rental options. We’ve scoured the internet for three of the best vacation rental providers based on price, range and offerings. 


For the most extensive range of vacation rentals in La Quinta, look to VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner). There are currently more than 100 properties dotted across the resort city’s 35 sq. miles. These range from studio apartments to eight-bedroom Spanish-inspired townhouses, at some of the most affordable rates we’ve seen on the internet too. You can filter by price, rating, number of bedrooms, house rules (such as pet-free and smoke-free homes), and pool facilities to help whittle down the most relevant options. For extra peace of mind, all properties feature reviews (unless they’re new) with a star rating out of five.
