La Quinta, Gem of the Desert!

From the moment we stayed at Legacy Villas on our sister's trip, Karen and I were captivated by the serenity and beauty of the resort. Nestled in a picturesque cove in the Santa Rosa Mountains, the architecture and landscaping is a feast for the eyes. Meandering paseos lined with palms accented by colorful tile fountains connect the Villas with the pools and clubhouse.

5 Star Luxury Resort:

Legacy Villas is a gated Resort featuring 10,000 sf clubhouse, 12 saltwater pools and many fountains connected by meandering landscaped paseos. The quality of construction and number of amenities is impressive. The Clubhouse area features main pool area, workout facility and a hammock garden. The main pool area includes 2 pools, lap pool and spa lined with colorful Cabanas. The children's pool or disabled pool features easy access into pool and adjacent fun water features for children like the turtle or palm tree fountains. There is free wireless internet in the clubhouse. The Legacy Grill is open seasonally for a simple meals or an excellent cup of Starbuck's coffee.

Why Our Villa?

We chose this Villa for our family vacation home because of the location and floorplan. Located at the end of the Main paseo close to the clubhouse and main pools, the Villa is located on a greenbelt with incredible VIEWS of the Grand Fountain and Desert Mountains. It is an ideal location for families with small children and limited mobility (no stairs and steps to lawn area). Sip your morning coffee or dine on the private patio enjoying the spectacular views of the mountains highlighted by the sight and sounds of the Grand Fountain.

It is ideal for a large or small group. There are 2 suites on either end (King suite and Queen suite) and a 3rd bedrm with queen bed and full bath. The suites provide private retreats and the Living Room provides a cozy venue for socializing. The Living Rm, Dining Area and Kitchen open to each other and form a wonderful Great Room that opens out to the patio. The Living Room features a comfy sofa with queen bed and 52' Sony HD flatscreen TV. The Dining Area seats 6 comfortably and there are 3 additional stools at the Kitchen bar. The spacious Kitchen features granite counters and is fully equipped for your every need. There is wi-fi throughout and a phone land line. There are new cotton linens. We like nice things and make sure the Villa remains in top condition. Check out our photo art taken of the local area.

What To Do:

You may not want to leave the resort area, relaxing by the many pools and hot tubs - a perfect day in my opinion. Or perhaps a morning game of tennis or golf at the nearby courts or courses. But if you are an adventurer and want to explore and experience what this area has to offer, here are some suggestions:

About Jeanne Wilson

We are a close Italian American family from the San Francisco Bay Area consisting of 2 sisters, a brother and our extended families. We love to get together and are having fun discovering the desert.

Jeanne Wilson purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeanne Wilson chose La Quinta

This property has a peaceful, serene location with beautiful views of the mountains and the large fountain. The villa is comfortable, well appointed and because of the separate suites, provides privacy and a 'retreat- like' feel. We have been enchanted by La Quinta area since our first sister's tennis trip 10 yrs ago. We stayed at Legacy one year with a friend and were captivated by the resort experience. From the visual treat to the salt water pools and luxury Villas, it was so much fun. Our families wanted to come have fun in the desert too.

What makes this condo unique

Each bedroom suite features private entrance, patio and full bathroom with large shower and jetted tub. Other features include HD TV with the sports station, wi-fi, land line, coffeemaker, ironing board, BBQ and fireplace.

We visit often and keep the Villa in tip top condition.

A fabulous month in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I loved our time at the Villa! Four weeks of pure heaven! The Condo worked out so nicely for the two of us and our steady flow of visitors! Having private entrances to the two masters makes this location great for two to three couples! The unit is very clean and comfortable, especially the beds!

The patio, even though is on the common area, was very peaceful. Loved listening to the fountains from the patio!

Local maintenance was very attentive and we had no problems with any of the condos amenities.

In the heart of beautiful LaQuinta and very close to shopping and anything you need! Golf and Hiking almost out the front door! Then hit the Jackolope for happy hour!

We hope to return next year and would highly recommend this unit to anyone, young or more senior... you will love the visit!
