About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 8

Legacy Villas at La Quinta - Adjacent to Waldorf Astoria Resort & Club, is is the best value in So. Calif. and the ultimate spot for a memorable family getaway. It is right next door (one block) to the Waldorf Astoria La Quinta Resort Hotel and was built just 10 years ago as a luxurious annex to the hotel to accommodate larger groups.

VACATION LIKE THE STARS! At the dawn of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and other screen legends often escaped from the limelight by retreating to the lush hideaway of La Quinta Resort & Club. 75 Years later, Legacy Villas by Centex would catapult the resort into the 21st century with state of the art construction and amenities, while preserving the original aura of this mystical locale. The one and two-story Spanish Hacienda-style villas, with sloping red-tiled roofs hanging over whitewashed plaster walls are luxuriously furnished in early California decor, and boast 10ft. ceilings and 1700 square feet of space, providing the getaway seeker plenty of room to stretch out for a day, a week or a month. Soaking tubs, 51' flat screen T.V. with surround sound, Kohler fixtures, rich maple wood cabinetry, dream-sleep mattresses, designer sheets and towels, granite counters and stone tile floors all add to the opulent spa-like ambiance. The fully amenitized chef's kitchen and open floor plan are perfect for entertaining groups.

The living room as well as both master bedrooms all open through charming french doors onto tranquil patios, where the aromas of surrounding bougainvillea and soothing sounds from the enchanting fountain complement romantic evenings of al fresco dining or wine tasting under a canopy of stars. The living room and dining room open to a charming shared courtyard with a magnificent spanish fountain at the center. The dual master suites each contain en suite bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and stall showers with floor to ceiling tiles.

For families seeking the ultimate luxury amenity, the lower unit features a brand new Ms. Pac Man cocktail table arcade game with Donkey Kong, Galaga and 60 other classic games.

Additional features include over 200 channels of HDTV including HBO and Showtime, DVD, Smart TV with streaming internet and free unlimited movies and shows from Netflix and Hulu, Wireless High-Speed Internet, ceiling fans throughout, built-in washer/dryer, three fireplaces, and separate private entries. With all this comfort, you'll never want to leave your villa.

Guest Access

For those able to pry themselves from the villa, the swimming options abound with 12 private salt water pools and 11 relaxing Jacuzzis, including dedicated lap pool, tranquil adult pool, and the ultimate family pool and play area with its beach-like entry, plus splash fountains and resort cabanas (free of charge). The inviting hammock garden, outdoor fireside lounge area, poolside Cafe, game room, and state of the art fitness facility round out the spectacular Clubhouse at the heart of the resort.

For a host of additional options, guests can meander next door to the Waldorf Astoria La Quinta Resort and Spa featuring shopping, outdoor music, six fabulous restaurants, a world class spa, and two Pete Dye championship golf courses.

About Dan Fried

I enjoy great architecture, jazz music and luxurious getaways. I stay active with running, hiking, biking and golf all of which are available right at the Villa.

Why Dan Fried chose California Desert

Because it is one of the most spectacular condo complexes I have ever seen. This Villa provides the ultimate luxury retreat for me and my family, where we can do all the activities we love in the serenity of the desert, right at the base of the dramatic Santa Rosa mountains.

This resort is one of the newest and most luxurious properties in all of Palm Springs. It is built to the latest and highest quality standards, making even the La Quinta Resort next door pale in comparison. We love that no one can look in the windows in our unit when the blinds are open due to the way it is situated, providing a true sense of privacy usually reserved only for single family homes.

Next door, two championship golf courses designed by Pete Dye— augmented by the three courses of the nearby PGA West club, including the TPC Stadium course, ranked as one of Golf Digest's 100 greatest public courses—provide golfers of all levels ample opportunity to work on their game while admiring the breathtaking views of the Santa Rosa Mountains.

My wife and I have been coming to La Quinta for over 10 years to recover from the rush of life in Los Angeles. Just 2 hours from Los Angeles, but worlds away.

What makes this condo unique

The lavish assortment of pools, spas and fountains rivals any property in the desert.

My wife and I also love being able to walk next door to the world famous La Quinta Resort and Spa for exclusive shopping, gourmet dining and romantic evenings on the manicured grounds. And when we're in the mood to treat ourselves, the Spa La Quinta - crowned one of the Top 50 Spas of America - provides a host of tranquility inducing treatments using all organic products in a spectacular setting.

We also love biking to downtown La Quinta (1 mile away) for deliciously simple breakfasts and coffee drinks at the Old Town Coffee Company or hearty dining on the patio at the delicious Stuffed Pizza.

No stay is complete without a field trip to tony El Paseo and the unique Living Desert Zoo in Rancho Mirage, just 10 minutes away.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo! It was clean and very well stocked except for a few minor things. Each bathroom only had one roll of toilet paper and the kitchen only had one roll of paper towels. For a group of 7 for one week we had to go out and buy more. But that's a very minor thing. That's seriously our only complaint for the entire stay! It was a beautiful home and very close to multiple pools which we spent almost all of our time at. Even the pool and hammock areas were pristine! The beds were comfy, the bathrooms were beautiful, and the kitchen was great! It was so nice not to go out to eat for all of our meals. And the pacman game was so much fun! Well worth the small amount extra we paid for having it in the condo. The owners/managers of the unit were amazing to work with. Go to the mexican place at the resort next door...amazing nachos!! We are already planning another trip back to this area in September and are hoping this unit will be available!!

in town for the wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Legacy Villas. We were in town for our daughter's wedding and the condo made everything so handy since it was next door to La Quinta resort where the wedding was held. Excellant location and well appointed condo.

La Quinta Luxury

  • 4 of 5

I went with 3 buddies for a guys golfing weekend. The gate guarded community was very quiet and nice with quite a few pools close by. We enjoyed the small BBQ/grill on the deck and all amenities the unit had to offer. The only thing to be aware of is the fairly steep stairway to lug all your gear up.

Beautiful home with great pool amenities

  • 5 of 5

The home was as pictured. It was clean, well furnished, and comfortable. It is located within a gated community with 24-hour security. The grounds were well kept and the pools were nice. Dan and Ray were both very nice and their response to any needs was very good. If ever in this area again, I would be more than happy to stay here again.
