As the Gem of The Desert, La Quinta is home to some of the best attractions and high-value real estate in Riverside County. In fact, it has even been compared to other prestigious and high-profile locations such as Park Avenue in New York.
La Quinta’s location may be one of the reasons that some of the most recognized names in their field have chosen to call this tiny desert city their home.
Here are three of them:
Tim Cook. Apple’s head honcho Tim Cook is among those who have made La Quinta – or at least, purchased properties in the area – their home. Apple’s CEO confirmed to have invested in a stunning $10 million property back in 2019. Located in La Quinta’s exclusive Madison Club community, the home features 5 bedrooms, and 6 bathrooms, and has nearly 10,000 square feet of living space. The property also sits on an 0.81-acre lot and comes equipped with luxurious features like an executive office, a wet bar with a custom billiard table, two professional-grade kitchens, a $150,000 infinity pool with views of the Santa Rosa Mountains, a tanning deck, a hot tub, multiple firepits, a swim-up bar, a covered patio, a barbecue island, and a 1,766-square-foot multi-car garage.
Kourtney Kardashian. The reality TV star is another La Quinta transplant, after shelling out $12 million for a massive private estate. Located in a gated upscale La Quinta neighborhood, the property spans over 9,000 square feet, sits on nearly an acre of land, and comes with an attached guesthouse. The Contemporary-style mansion has 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms—, the perfect size for Kardashian, her three children, and her husband, drummer Travis Barker of Blink-182. According to reports, the star’s La Quinta home was bought fully furnished and comes with everything a luxury buyer could ever ask for, such as custom water features, a Great Room with amazing panoramic views of the Santa Rosa Mountains, a custom bar and wine room, a large infinity edge pool, spa, and access to a 15-tee Tom Fazio-designed golf course.
Jenna Ortega. Best known for her roles in the Netflix series, “Wednesday” and the “Scream” franchise, Jenna Ortega is another notable La Quinta resident. Unlike the other celebrities in this list, however, Jenna is an OG resident, having lived in the resort town since her childhood days. The property, which is reportedly still listed under her parents’ names, is amply sized but modestly furnished. The 8,700-square-foot family home has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, as well as a 2-car garage. It also has an inground swimming pool with its own spa and waterfall feature, as well as a spacious outdoor patio with amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
