About Marcie Hartley and Mark Singer

Hi there! We're Marcie and Mark, and we're the proud owners of your Weekend Desert Getaway!

We purchased the place in 2006 when it was brand spanking new and have always done our utmost to ensure it remains in tip top condition. We're travelers ourselves and have enjoyed many vacation rentals so we understand just how important it is to get an honest description of the property, and responsive, caring owners who want the best for their visitors! Besides, we love the place ourselves, and like to visit between rentals for a bit of R n' R by the pool!

We're not a faceless corporation (as you probably figured out when you saw the picture of our faces!) with a dozen or two units. Our Legacy Villa is the only vacation rental we own, so we care a great deal about both the upkeep on the property itself, and our guests' experience.

Marcie hails from Arizona so she's a desert girl by birth, and Mark, well he's Canadian so he loves having visiting snowbirds - as long as they don't bring the weather with them! We'd love to have you stay at our unit at Legacy Villas and will do what we can to ensure your visit is a memorable one that you'll want to repeat! And if you refer us to anyone, well, let's just say, we remember our friends!

Why Marcie Hartley and Mark Singer chose California Desert

We bought our unit at Legacy Villas because it was and still is arguably one of the nicest premium resort communities in all the desert cities. It was built in conjunction with, and to the same standards as the Waldorf Astoria resort right next door. The architecture and manicured grounds were all planned and implemented as a natural extension of the world famous resort, and provide a stunning, safe, secure, family friendly place to enjoy all that the desert cities have to offer!

We're located in easy reach of many a great restaurant, golf courses, tennis courts, a spa, and pretty much anything and everything that you come to the desert to enjoy! And don't forget to enjoy Joshua Tree National Park which is a very easy and short day trip from our property!

Wonderful stay at Legacy Villas!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend with family, including two five-year-olds and everyone loved it. Beautiful views from both balconies, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and very communicative hosts. We are looking forward to returning next year-- hopefully for a longer stay.

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Legacy Villas! The condo was lovely and well appointed. We had plenty of space to stretch out and feel right at home. The set up of the complex is great for families with small children with walking paths, fountains and amazing pools (the occasional bunny sighting and the hummingbirds were also a big hit) . Mark and Marcie were wonderful hosts. They called us when we arrived to ensure we had everything we needed. We will absolutely stay here again.

It was a fun and relaxing weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was easy to get, and close to restaurants and shops. It less than a 15 minute drive to the Polo Grounds, which was perfect during Stagecoach . It was the perfect place for us, and we had a wonderful weekend staycation.

4 adults and 3 little girls aged 3, 4 and 7 fit perfectly in the space. Loved the 2 decks,.

  • 5 of 5

this is a great getaway for families with small children especially escaping from winter weather back home. The pools accommodate all ages and our Canadian little girls enjoyed meeting other families from LA, Colorado, Fresno etc. The property is quiet and well appointed. Just loved relaxing on the deck off the master bedroom with a glass of wine enjoying the evening breeze and listening to the doves cooing. The only downside was that our stay was too short.
