About the property

3 Bedroom/3 Bath Villa in Gated Community with Dramatic Mountain & Pool Views

Gone South Vacation Rentals welcomes you to "The Tahiti Suite," conveniently located in Legacy Villas, a private and safe, 24-hour guarded, gated-community in La Quinta, with 12 refreshing salt water pools, 11 spas, and 19 fountains, set against the backdrop of the rugged Santa Rosa Mountains, beautifully landscaped with palm trees, flowers, cactus and fruit trees, located directly adjacent to the Waldorf La Quinta Resort and Club.

This property is centrally located ― downtown Palm Springs and the airport are just a short drive away, as is El Paseo, the desert’s own “Rodeo Drive.” We are minutes from Old Town La Quinta, the Empire Polo Field and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden Stadiums. The Waldorf La Quinta Resort and Club is within walking distance ― where at the dawn of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable and other screen legends escaped from the limelight by retreating to this lush hideaway. The resort offers shopping boutiques, seven fabulous restaurants, a world-class spa and two Pete Dye Championship golf courses. And, the Coachella Music Fest/Stagecoach location is just 4 miles away.

Escape to “The Tahiti Suite” ― Guests will enjoy the 10-foot ceilings in this spacious, bottom floor, open floor plan villa with dramatic mountain and pool views. The well-appointed chef’s kitchen features upgraded appliances and granite counter tops with a convenient breakfast bar that seats two. The living room offers a comfortable seating area with fireplace, flat screen hdtv, blue ray dvd player and ceiling fan. The dining area seats four and opens with French doors to a large, private, covered patio surrounded by manicured landscaping. There is a gas barbecue and a table with four chairs for outside dining. This property is located just steps from the pool.

This 5-Star Villa Offers 3 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms:

1. King Master Suite: spacious room with king-size bed, fireplace, flat screen hdtv, blue ray dvd player, French doors opening to tranquil covered patio, and en suite bathroom with walk-in tile shower, deep soaking tub and granite counter tops.

Wonderful, beautiful, perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, and couldn't have asked for more beautifully furnished, well-equipped, perfectly located spacious accommodation. This unit is steps away from a pool - we could watch the kids swimming from the patio. Speaking of patios, there are three of them! Plus, three full showers (& 2 tubs) which came in handy after everyone came in from the pool. The main pool with the kid fountains and gym and clubhouse and hammocks is also just a few minutes walk away. The grounds are stunning, beautifully landscaped and surrounded by rock cliffs. There are a bunch of grocery stores and restaurants just minutes drive away, so restocking our fridge was so easy. We had such a great time and loved staying here!!

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, well stocked (and thanks to an "oops" on our part, a budding bar!). Quiet, easy walking. Having two master suites at opposite ends was great.

Didn’t want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. The house was a perfect layout for me and my adult children. Loved having the pool so close but we still chose to go to the main pool. Owners are very responsive to our needs that came up. Beautiful location!

Excellent, Spacious, & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our two-week stay at this wonderful, spacious place was refreshing and relaxing, with several saltwater pools surrounded by gorgeous gardens and fountains (and, of course, lined with many palm trees). Everything was as advertised, and the slight problem we had with the garburator was fixed immediately. We hope to return to this safe, comfortable accommodation in the future.
