Luxurious Mountainside Hacienda-Style Villa in Desert Oasis near Palm Springs

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' 3-D 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 villa can come equipped with a brand new Ms. Pac Man cocktail table video 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.

If the Villa is booked at a time you are interested in, please inquire with owner, because other units may be available.

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 beach-like entry 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 La Quinta

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.

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 villa 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 Clint Eastwood's Hogs breath Inn.

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.

Lovely Resort, Lovely Time!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the downstairs, one bedroom unit for a period of two weeks and I must say that for the most part, everything was wonderful! Just a few recommendations ... purchase a larger t.v. for the living room, get firmer sofa cushions, hang a full length mirror, have the safe repaired so that it can be used by renters, and a having a few more dish towels and a drain board in the kitchen would be helpful. The owner, Dan, quickly responded to any of our inquiries and the manager, Ray, was absolutely wonderful!! He immediately responded to any emails or concerns, ie: when the food disposal didn't work, he sent over the handyman to repair it and when the cable went out following a brief power failure, he came over himself to reset the system. In addition, when the studio lock off was rented for each of the weekends during our stay, Ray alerted us to that fact so that we would not be concerned if we heard any people next door. It should be noted that if you are sitting outside on the patio when the air conditioning condensers go on, the noise is very loud, but that is not the fault of the owner, but rather of the complex builder. All in all, our time at Legacy Villas was wonderful and the property is highly recommended!

Legacy Villas

  • 4 of 5

Five of us stayed for a week and it was very comfortable. The beds are soft, lots of blankets and pillows. The pools were clean and well kept, as was the rest of the property. Hummingbirds were amazing and the fountain just outside the door was a nice feature. It was thoughtful of the property to shut the fountain off at night time. The only thing that bothered us was the air conditioning units were just outside the one bedroom's windows, it made it hard to sleep at night.

We had a fabulous time and would come back again.

Thank you for the stay.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband, two sons, one daughter-in-law) stayed here last week and had a wonderful time. The property is fantastic...great location, loved the layout of the condo, and all the amenities you would expect. We spent three mornings in the gym, several evenings in the spa, one "pool day" where we enjoyed great bloody mary's at the grill, took a morning hike nearby, and walked to LaQuinta for dinner one evening. We came primarily for the tennis tournament at Indian Wells, but found ourselves trying to schedule some more "condo time". We plan to return again next year!

Great space with options

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in great condition, and was very warm and inviting. With the many pools close by, the girls were able to go lounge at the pool while the guys went to one of the many golf courses in the area. If there was one thing I could complain about, it would be that the water in the showers and bathtubs were not hot at all; merely lukewarm at best. In all, great place; and water temp aside, I would definitely rent again!!

Owner's Response: John, Glad you enjoyed it so much. Thanks for the heads up on the water temp; now that we are headed into cooler weather, we'll up the temp on the water heaters accordingly. Come back soon. Dan
