Great, convenient, and well-appointed Studio

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Pat's Park View Studio at Legacy Villas. It was close to local amenities, such as the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, but also had resort-like amenities on the grounds, such as large pools, a gated entry, multiple walking paths, and tranquility. We stayed during the Indian Wells tennis tournament, so this was exactly what we needed. It has a well-stocked mini-kitchen area with mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker, sink, toaster, and dishes and utensils. The mini fridge doesn't have an ice maker, as most of them do not, but there is an ice machine up by the fitness center and main pool. We were very happy to use this on our way to sit in the sun and watch tennis each day. :) The unit has been updated very nicely, to include separated shower and bath, the mini kitchenette, a very comfy bed, dresser, fireplace, and cable tv that included the tennis channel (a plus for us; all tennis all the time!) Although we did not use them, there are hammocks for use up by the main pool. We also enjoyed the cabanas by the main pool. They are first-come, first use and provided comfy great shade for our pool time. Parking was first-come, first-serve, but we were able to find street parking that wasn't too far away. Oh, and we forgot an item, and Pat kindly mailed it to our home. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend either of the units Pat rents! Thank you, Pat!

Great location and well thought out for the size of the space!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! Very safe and good location! The studio was clean, nicely furnished, well thought out and had everything we needed. Pool area in the complex was good and the patio at the unit was a nice place for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. Not a big place but it was very comfortable and suited our needs very well for our 4-day trip!

Cozy stay with lovely facilities

  • 5 of 5

This studio is located in a beautiful complex with multiple pools, hot tubs, a "hammock park" and gym. The complex itself is close to hiking/biking trails and is a 5 minute drive from Old Town La Quinta, with restaurants and local boutiques. The studio itself is immaculately clean and well kept. The room opens to a small private outside patio equipped with a chaise lounger, chairs and umbrella for shade. Pat is very helpful and responds immediately to questions and concerns.

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!!
