California Desert Condo Rental Photos and Description

Waldorf Astoria Adjacent Villa, Sleeps 8, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, + Sleeper Sofa

Our beautifully appointed, fully furnished villa was built in conjunction with and adjacent to the world famous Waldorf Astoria La Quinta Resort. It offers a truly beautiful getaway in a tranquil, manicured setting among trees, fountains and beautiful adobe architecture. Our unit is a spacious and bright approximately 1700 square foot upper corner villa unit with stunning mountain and community views. You will feel truly relaxed in this resort-like gated and secure community. It's extremely family friendly and the sun shines through most of the year!

When not enjoying the community amenities, our unit offers wi-fi and cable TV including HBO and sports channels, and 3 zone climate control to keep you comfy!

The unit is designer-decorated and features up-to-date granite kitchen and luxury bathrooms, plantation shutters throughout and three fireplaces.

The unit features 3 fantastic bedrooms:

1) The King Suite: a sprawling room with king-sized bed, en suite, soaking tub, fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, a wet-bar/coffee station, mini-fridge, it's own climate zone, and private balcony looking out to the desert mountains.

2) The Queen Suite: a large bedroom with en suite, soaking tub, fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, a wet-bar/coffee station, mini-fridge and its own climate zone.

3) Junior bedroom: A beautiful and comfortable full sized bedroom with queen sized bed and a TV.

For those needing to sleep more, the living room also has a pull out double sleeper for a maximum villa capacity of up to 8!

Please note that for a few months starting in October 2015, some of the Legacy Villas' many pools will be undergoing renewed hardscaping and refinishing work on a rotating basis. As such, some pools may be closed during your stay. This applies to all units at Legacy Villas. However, our resort community has many pools (around 12 in all), as well as many spas so you will at no time find yourself without a great place to swim or relax poolside. Thanks for your understanding during this period, while Legacy Villas is made even better for its residents and visitors.

There's also a Hammock Garden, a grand club room, conference rooms, cabanas, and many additional community pools and spas located throughout the resort. Walking distance to La Quinta Resort and its restaurants and golf courses, minutes from Indian Wells Tennis Center, Old Town La Quinta with its restaurants and public tennis courts, and for those in the mood to shop, Palm Spring's answer to Beverly Hills, the El Paseo shopping area with high-end shops and numerous restaurants.

To ensure the comfort of all our guests, ours is a No Smoking and No Pets unit.

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!

Beautiful, relaxing, centrally located private con

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the condo justice! It has a lot more space than I expected. It comfortably fit 8 guests.

The condo is located across the street from one of the pools, and about a block away from the main pool. The unit is on a corner towards the back which adds an element of privacy if you're worried about noise from neighbors.

The process for booking was easy and the owners were friendly and helpful leading up to my trip as well as during the trip.

I would definitely stay here again and look forward to doing so! Thank you for a wonderful stay! :)

The villa was lovely - lived up to our expectations. The owners were very accommodating. We would definitely come back again and stay at this villa. Location was great. Lap pool close by to use and walking distance to La Quinta. Peaceful and perfect. Thank you for having us.

amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

My Florida tennis team made it to a national tournament at Indian Wells and we chose to stay at Marcie and Mark's villa. We could not have been more satisfied with the property. It was in fantastic condition and had everything we could ask for. It was also in a great location, only a short drive to the tennis center and restaurants / shopping. Lastly, their cleaning woman found over $1000 in cash/ checks that I left behind and she graciously returned it all to me. I will definitely be back!
