One Bedroom Spa Villa with Spectacular Mountain Views/ Private Pool

Bedrooms 1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our beautiful villa is located on the grounds of the famous ***** Star hotel, LaQuinta Resort & Spa currently managed by Waldorf Astoria. Our home is located at 77438 Vista Flora (villa is marked 1762) and is just a few minutes walk to the famous resort spa. PLEASE BE AWARE: of listings that imply they are on the hotel grounds, you need a car to get to the lobby & restaurants should you book one of these! I note that nearly every person advertising 'La Quinta Resort & Spa', are located miles away, in most cases ... including 'Santa Rosa Cove' (miles away) and 'Legacy Villas', they are a fifteen to twenty minute brisk walk at best. Our home is the only home (except one other) that is actually on the famous hotel grounds! Of the two homes advertised on VRBO (both are mine) the villas are closer to the hotel, restaurants, shopping and the spa.

JUST INSTALLED: A 42 inch flatscreen TV and working to get unlimited access free of charge to Netflix for your viewing pleasure.

This home is a one story 2nd floor villa with fabulous views of all the mountains. One balcony (Which can seat ten) has spectacular views of the mountains and the famous resort. From the second balcony - also with a seating area, you see the large pool and southern mountain views. My wife and I enjoy these balconies while sipping great margaritas, you will enjoy them too ... even if it's just iced tea. Please see our private web site by clicking on 'additional pictures' below. This magnificent property (the resort) is world famous, and by using your search engine you can confirm this. It is legendary for it's spectacular surroundings, including landscaping, the lush flowers that are everywhere, ancient yucca's, and weeping willows. As you walk through these grounds you will encounter wild birds, including hawks, ducks ... and running between them on the ground - dozens of road runners.

The hotel features live music near the main restaurants, ideal for your favorite drinks. Starbucks coffee house on the grounds serves early risers, who can sit in the morning sun - surrounded by one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.

A private maseur we use is available upon request. He is considered the deserts best maseur and has reasonable rates when you book my home.

The property is a privately owned residence and guests staying do not have access to hotel services and the use of the two main pools and fitness center is restricted.

Why Michael Dubasso chose California Desert

This luxury home was acquired for the very intimate pool and the surrounding views, especially mountain views.

What makes this villa unique

The Spa Villas were built in four stages. Ours is in the third stage. We have been coming to the resort for 30 years and carefully watched each stage designed and built. I realized as soon as I saw stage 3 this was the best location, a great & secluded private pool which is surrounded by lush landscaping and just minutes from the Spa and fitness center. All the other stages have draw backs, mostly they are clustered together so you have little or no view, the last stage is too close to the loud laundry room with only a lap pool.

Beautiful property and perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

I can hardly say enough about beautiful and peaceful La Quinta Resort and Spa! The condo was perfect and so charming. We had everything we needed from the well appointed kitchen, to the comfortable beds and loved our quiet location with the pretty deck views. I will stay here again! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Exceptional Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this unit is exceptional especially if you are going to stay during the BNP tennis tournament. However the property needs a serious face lift. The entire La Quinta resort is very old which is part of the charm but this unit is very worn down some minor cosmetic updates would be a great improvement. Overall my stay was exceptional but only 4 stars due to condition of the unit.

We loved the units. Clean, well appointed and exactly as shown in pictures. Loved the accessibility to the pool and enjoyed both decks. Cannot wait to return.

quiet and excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Really wonderful unit, so quiet and excellent proximity to La Quinta the resort, just walk over for dinner. The unit is on the second floor but no one is underneath you except for parking spaces. The pool is right there! This unit is also great for a family or for two couples. The rooms can be completely private from each other and there are two full bathrooms.

Wow…what a wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was perfect for our family of 3! The views and light in this 1 bedroom were outstanding. We made friends with all of our neighbors hanging out in the pool literally right outside our door. We played tennis everyday for hours. The weather was just beautiful every single day – and we stayed 10 days. We are all sad to leave and cannot wait to plan our next trip. Stephanie
