Short Term Rental Policies
The La Quinta Tennis Villa HOA governing documents do not restrict short term vacation rentals. Since the La Quinta Tennis Villas were first built in 1984, Villa owners have been responsibly renting rout their Villas on a short term basis (for 1 or more nights). On October 20, 2021, The City of La Quinta signed Ordinance No 596 which effectively permits owners of La Quinta Tennis Villas to continue renting out their Villas on a nightly basis. The exemption for the La Quinta Tennis Villas can also been seen on this document from the City of La Quinta (December 2022). The City of La Quinta does have some administrative, license fee, and occupancy tax requirements for owners who choose to rent out their Villas for 30 days or less at a time. For further information about renting out your Villa and being complaint with the City of La Quinta, you can go to the City of La Quinta's web site for information.
As of September 1, 2018, the landscaping is professionally maintained by Vintage Landscape.
The pools are professional maintained on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays (excluding holidays). Please funnel requests through HOA management. The pools are heated from about mid October to late April to about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot tubs are heated to 102 degrees Fahrenheit year round. Owners should never change the temperature settings are their own.
Garage & Front Doors
Each owner is responsible for the maintenance, repair (and replacement if needed) of all of their exterior doors (front (wood), garage (steel), sliding (glass) and for some Villas also exterior water cabinets. All exterior doors (except the glass doors) have historically been painted by the HOA when all Villas are painted, every 8-10 years or so (April 2004, July 2012, August 2021). Any material repairs which can not be resolved by routine painting, do need however to be taken care of by individual homeowners. If you would like to replace your garage door, or if you have been gently reminded by the HOA that you should replace your garage door ASAP, these are the specifications of the garage doors:
Size/Type /Design: 16' X 7', flush 4 panel, steel frame, insulated garage door
Paint: Spartashield Semi Gloss, La Quinta Hotel Blue. Available at Dunn-Edwards in Bermuda Dunes, at 78078 Country Club Drive at Washington (by the I-10), (760) 360 8269. (Owners need to have the garage door painted at their expense when the door is replaced.)
Glass Doors and Windows
All upkeep, repair and replacement required for the glass doors and windows of the Villas are the responsibility of the individual homeowner. Any replacement of the glass windows and doors need to be done in style, color and exterior look which is the same as current. Please check with the HOA management if you have any questions.
The exterior painting of the Tennis Villas are maintained by the HOA and has most recently been painted in September 2012. The garages, front doors and deck rails were all painted in the Summer of 2021.
If you would like to touch up areas of your exterior in compliance with the HOA's CC&Rs, the official paints for the Tennis Villas are available at Dunn-Edwards in Bermuda Dunes, at 78078 Country Club Drive at Washington (by the I-10), (760) 360 8269. The paints are as follows:

Beams - Spartashield Flat, DEC712 Briar
Rails - Spartashield Semi Gloss, Swiss Coffee

Any work down by owners or their contractors which is the normal responsibility the Association (i.e touching up exterior stucco of Villas) needs to be paid for by individual homeowners, and may not be reimbursed by the HOA without prior approval. If you would like any clarification, please contact the HOA Property Manager.
