About the property

3 Bedroom/3 Bath Villa in Gated-Community with Santa Rosa Mountain Views & Pool

Gone South Vacation Rentals welcomes you to "The Bahamas 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 Bahamas Suite” ― Guests will enjoy the 10-foot ceilings in this spacious, bottom floor, open floor plan villa with dramatic mountain views. This well-appointed villa has it all! The gourmet kitchen features upgraded appliances and granite counter tops with a convenient breakfast bar that seats three. 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:

King Master Suite 1: 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.

Great Place for a Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay recently at this oasis. The amenities inside the unit and at the whole of the Legacy Villas is wonderful.

Our only complaint is that the air conditioning while entirely needed was very noisy, but that shouldn't deter anyone from booking this wonderful vacation rental.

Nice villa

  • 3 of 5

This villa was very nice - well-maintained and well-equipped. Resort grounds and facilities are also very lovely. However, we did find the suite quite dark inside. Being at ground level, we heard all the foot-steps of the neighbours above, which was annoying. When we arrived, the air conditioning was set at 68 degrees - the note in the condo said not to adjust below 70 - it was very difficult to change the temp, as it kept re-setting either back to 68 or 76. Needless to say, the temp was either freezing or too hot.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We will use your feedback to improve our property. I'm sorry that you had a difficult time adjusting the air conditioning; I wish you would have contacted me during your stay so that I could have helped you resolve this. Please come back and visit! Best, Kelly

We had a wonderful time in this quiet, clean, and spacious property. The development is lovely and the salt water pools, including a lap pool, were truly great! Plenty of space for everyone to be private and enough space to gather as a group. Highly recommended and we have to other family members and to friends.

Relaxing, family time

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed having a place where our family could comfortably spread out, cook at "home" and entertain another family without stepping all over each other. Accommodations were tasteful, and details were attended to. We would return!

Hospitable and Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo for 4 nights, and we had a wonderful stay. The layout of the condo worked very well for our 2 grown children and my husband and me. The location of the condo in relations to the subdivision was very convenient to the fitness center and pool (which we did not use, sadly, as the weather was too cold). We were less than 5 minutes away from the La Quinta Resort, where we had dinner one evening. I have stayed at the Legacy Villas several times before, and the condos never disappoint.

Deserted in the Desert

  • 1 of 5

We have used sites like VRBO nearly 50 times in the last few years and they've all been wonderful... except this one. We will never stay at this property again and would recommend other people stay away!

Upon arriving we found the condo to be in good shape except for one issue - the AC in one of the large bedrooms didn't seem to be on. (The condo is a 3 bedroom that can be sectioned off into smaller rentals and each of those sections has it's own dedicated AC unit). The majority of the place was perfectly cool but the one bedroom was hot (85 degrees) so we turned the AC down more and went out for the day.

When we returned that night the room was still hot - the temperature hadn't budged. So we sent Condo Manager, Amy, an email telling her the AC wasn't working and asked her to send a repairman. We tried to sleep in the room that night but finally gave up we were so hot and slept on the floor in the living room.

The next morning, still no word from Amy, so we left her another voicemail. After a couple of hours we tried texting and calling again from another number. Completely unresponsive. Finally, by that afternoon, we went to the front entrance gate and asked the security guard for help. She called Amy- after which a repairman showed up! He worked on the AC for a few minutes and said it needed a new part - and that he would return in an hour or two.

We decided to wait for him because we wanted to make sure he had access to the unit if he needed it - since we never heard from Amy we didn't know if he'd know how to get in - and we didn't want another sleepless night! So that whole afternoon we waited for him. He never came back.

Clearly, this was extremely frustrating. We had spent a lot of money on a nice resort location only to sleep on the floor. The next day, when it was time to check out, after emailing again, we finally heard back from Amy. She was nice on the phone, and we asked for a partial refund due to our inability to use 1/3 of the condo - she said she'd see what she could do. After waiting a week, we followed up. She responded with what a deal we'd received on the price of our booking and said that because it had already been "a steal" she could only give us what equated to an insultingly low fraction of the overall price.

Yes, appliances can malfunction, but to go all weekend without AC in the desert for a section of the unit, to have a non-responsive manager, and a dismissive & insulting response. Unacceptable.
