About this home

Welcome to Casa Mara, an exclusive TRAVLR Vacation Home!

Casa Mara is a true desert oasis that embraces the tranquil elements of nature throughout the design and furnishings, allowing you to arrive and instantly escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Sun seekers have a run of this 1-acre, lush outdoor space, consisting of a large swimming pool with lazy river and water slide, hammocks, sun loungers, fire pit, putting green, citrus garden, half basketball court and a sand volleyball – all surrounded by views of the mountains and desert sky.

Want to take the entertainment inside? Casa Mara has a fully air conditioned, converted garage space that has become the ultimate game room and gym. Equipped with billiards, foosball, air hockey, ping pong and a large, big screen TV, this space will leave you thinking - what more could you ask for? Oh, a gym? We've got you covered with the all-new Peloton treadmill and Peloton spin bike!

Other noteworthy features - Sonos sound system integrated indoors and outdoors throughout the property, desert zen garden lounge area, hanging chairs, outdoor shower and an outdoor guest bathroom for easy access from the pool area.

There are several dining options with an outdoor kitchen that includes a grill, mini fridge, outdoor TV and plenty of prep space. Inside, the large open-plan kitchen comes with an island and large breakfast bar – your resident chef's happy place. All brand-new surfaces throughout the homes and sleek monochrome/earthy touches give the living area a classy, sophisticated feel, helped by the natural light through large windows – a sophistication that continues into the bedrooms. The luxurious bathrooms are particularly stylish, and the deep freestanding bathtub in the primary suite is the perfect place to end sunny Palm Desert days.

You won't need to (or want to) leave this estate property, but if you do, head to the unique landscapes at nearby Joshua Tree National Park for desert hikes and total tranquility or drive down the road to El Paseo, the “Rodeo Drive” of the desert for shopping and dining.

We want you to feel confident when renting a TRAVLR Vacation Home. As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures in the interest of our Guests' and Employees' health and safety. Currently, we spend between 4-16 working hours to clean each rental property after every reservation and have enhanced our check-out cleaning procedures to pay close attention to all details, specifically disinfecting all surfaces with anti-bacterial solutions. We frequently change all HVAC filters and clean pools twice weekly to help ensure optimal cleanliness as well. Our vendors and staff are equipped with protective gear such as face masks and gloves to maintain the safety of all parties.

Close by is the famous El Paseo and Old Town La Quinta areas with excellent dining and shopping options. If you are looking to play golf, we are minutes from PGA West with three public courses to choose from; The TPC Stadium, The Greg Norman and The Jack Nicklaus Tournament.

Enjoy some of the many world-class events like the Humana Challenge (previously the Bob Hope Classic). Or if you enjoy tennis, minutes away is the home of the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Classic at Indian Wells Top Rated Tennis Stadium, held early to mid-March, with over 300 of the top-rated tennis players in the world. In April comes the Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals just minutes down the road hosted at the famous Polo Grounds where you can also enjoy top-ranked polo matches free of charge and have a tailgate picnic with your friends at the same time!


Bookings canceled at least 60 days before the start of stay will receive 50% refund of any payments received, less a $350 cancellation fee. EXCEPT for Holidays, Special Events and Music Festival reservations which are strictly non-refundable.

Special events and music festivals that are cancelled, postposed, or altered in any way, for any reason, do not qualify for any refund, alteration of the reservation or cancellation, including Acts of God, pandemics, epidemics or health outbreaks such as COVID-19. NO CREDIT WILL BE ISSUED IN THE CASE OF EARLY DEPARTURE OR CANCELLATION FOR ANY FESTIVAL BOOKING.

GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY: You agree to abide by all rules and regulations set forth by local ordinances, which includes a “Good Neighbor Policy”. You are advised to keep in mind that vacation rental properties are located in quiet, private neighborhoods. Please respect our neighbors. Anyone found to be violating noise ordinances of the City or HOA will be subject to an initial $500 fine followed by a possible eviction in egregious circumstances. Guests will not be issued any refund for issues related to noise ordinance violations. Possible violations include, without limitation, sound amplification outdoors, over occupying parking areas, over occupying rental Property, and failing to follow your Agreement with Manager HOA Rules and Regulations allow for 24-hour quiet enjoyment of homeowner's Property. While strict quiet hours are enforced

between 9:00PM-8:00AM and no outdoor music or noise is permitted during those times, noise violations and fines may be cited at any time of day or night. Parking is not permitted on the streets at any time. There are no parties allowed at this Property. This Agreement and Guest's reservation is subject to the Governing Documents of the HOA and/or City where the Property is located.


Walking distance to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, minutes from the Empire Polo Fields for all the equestrian activities and Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals; 5-10 minutes from the La Quinta Resort, PGA West, Old Town La Quinta, and El Paseo.

Check in is after 3PM local time, and check out is no later than 11AM. Early check in and late check out may be available for your reservation. There is a fee of $400 for both or $200 for either early check in or late check out.


All TRAVLR Vacation Homes have keyless locks. This keyless system allows entry into the vacation rental through the issue of a “code” rather than a physical key. The code changes for every reservation so it is an incredibly safe alternative. By issuing the code prior to arrival, the check-in process is much easier.


TRAVLR Vacation Homes provides a departure clean on all stays. A mid-week or mid-stay clean can be provided for an additional fee.


During the winter, the pools will be heated to 82-84 degrees, the fee is included in the cost of your rental.


All of our vacation rentals are furnished and have a kitchen with amenities including a microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender. Each property is stocked with cooking and serving items including plates, bowls and utensils, as well as a can opener, corkscrew measuring spoons and more. The coffee maker takes ground coffee and we also offer a spice rack, salt and pepper.

There are bath towels, pool towels and bed linens. We also provide an initial supply of trash liners, toilet paper, hand soap and dishwasher soap. Bathrooms are stocked with Shampoo, conditioner and liquid body wash. Laundry facilities are also equipped with laundry soap and dryer sheets.


We do not recommend shipping directly to the home, we do not have mailbox keys, and there are many different people with access to the home: vendors, housekeeping, Guest Services staff, etc... so we cannot be responsible for packages once delivered.


Casa Mara has a full indoor/outdoor speaker set up at the property.


Our vacation rentals are pet friendly. We allow for up to two pets per property for a fee of $150 per pet.

  • 10.0.Exceptional


    This property reached ALL of the family members expectations. It's relatively new, so the rooms and bathrooms are clean. Amenities are a bit limited in regards to the bathrooms and some parts of the kitchen. Overall, great place to stay with extended family members. We had 17 people in total, plus a medium size dog. There was enough space for adults to work and play, and the kids just played.
