Perfect for Coachella

  • 5 of 5

Great location . Its real close to the pick up point for the Coachella shuttle. Yet its still apart from all the other resorts and so , its real quiet at night. The Villa itself is very cosy. Coming from Asia , the cool dessert nights were too chilly for me, but the heater and the comfy bed kept us toasty. Big screen TV with cable! We enjoyed watching American TV every night after we got back from Coachella.

The only thing that marred my stay was the officious security guards at the main gate. They gave us a hard time. Insisted that our limo drop us off at the gate and wouldn't allow the car into the property . And they secured the bracelets way too tightly around my wrist.

Pat was very helpful and responded swiftly to my text msgs. everything was set up for maximum ease and I loved that. Explicit instructions on everything from entry to hot water in the shower to recommendations for dinner....I'll definitely return and recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy Coachella!!

The desert at it's BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Legacy Villas courtesy of Tom and Pat was a real treat! The condo reminded me of a real italian villa! For a studio, it was more than adequate and decorated beautifully. The bathtub is to die for. So often when renting in the desert, you might not get a bath tub, just a shower. This tub was beyond wonderful and separate from the shower. Huge flat screen above gorgeous fireplace. We did not use the fireplace since it was quite warm when we were there, but I can just imagine it on a chilly evening. There are small pools as well as the large pool with private cabanas, fitness club, and a cafwe right on site! The unit was extremely clean, it had exquisite linens, and was nicer than most hotels I've stayed in. The location was quite and calming. This is a perfect retreat!

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Legacy Villas and this studio suite. We enjoyed the peaceful and immaculately groomed grounds. Our suite was nicely appointed and had everything we needed, plus it was stone's throw from the swimming pool. We will definitely return.

Beautiful Ground Floor Studio

Beautiful studio, delightfully furnished, clean, comfy and private. Fitness centre is excellent.
