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 1300 square feet of space, providing the getaway seeker plenty of room to stretch out for a day, a week or a month. Soaking tub, flat screen T.V., 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 dining room and both bedrooms open to a peaceful shared courtyard with an attractive fountain nearby. The dual master suites each contain en suite bathrooms, one with deep soaking tub and stall shower, the other with ADA accessible shower.
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.
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 its beach-like entry, plus splash fountains 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.
Pool / Spa
Comfortable place, convenient location, good for a family
I like to share with people the goods and the bads - so here it is:
Goods - spacious place would fit comfortably a family of 4. Bedrooms are on opposite side of the unit providing privacy. Lots of cooking items in the kitchen so you can make anything you wish. Great location within the city - near shopping, restaurants, movie theater, etc. (within 5 miles). Also great location within the complex - 3 different pools are just steps away. Nice work-out facility on property. BBQ grill on the patio was a plus! Cable TV with plenty of channels. A/C worked well.
Bads - a lot of things in the apartment are noisy - the ceiling fan in the living room was unusable due to the noise (owner should look at getting this fixed). The mini-fridge in the bedroom was also very loud. The noise of the people above us was quite loud at times as well. For the cost of the cleaning fee, I felt there was a lot of responsibility put on us to clean and do laundry. Wasn't horrible - but the washer/dryer was very loud too - and we washed towels the night before we left to have enough time to get all the laundry done and it was inconvenient. There were 4 loads of wash we had to do - white towels, beach towels, sheets for master and sheets for 2nd bedroom. It's a stackable so you can't fit much in. My husband has AT&T Wireless and had very poor coverage. I have Verizon and it worked fine.
Suggestions: Bring your food and drinks with you and a cooler you can wheel to the clubhouse or pool. The food they have available for purchase is not very good.
Private and secure Location
We enjoyed our stay very much!!! The unit was nicely appointed. Very convenient to clubhouse, main pool, and fitness center. There were several smaller pools near us as well. The 11 am required departure was challenging given the required housekeeping duties. A tip: Plan your departure as there are a few housekeeping duties you will need to perform predeparture to reduce housekeeper time in preparing the unit for subsequent guests and to avoid penalties. Will plan to stay at Legacy Villas our next trip.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very happy you enjoyed our Villa. We will look forward to your return stay!
very nice place and nice grounds
the impression of the property, the unit, and the grounds was very nice and would highly recommend it.
the only pet peeve I have is having to do the dishes and laundry and them charging a hefty cleaning fee
their instructions stated that we had to do this and I thought typically that the cleaning people do this...ha ha ha
was I wrong.
This was a beautiful new property! Nice first floor! Close to the big pool and hammocks!
Wow! This was a great find! Security gate at the front. We conviently parked in front of the condo. Big kitchen. Very well appointed bedrooms. Quiet. Right next to the Resort. Our family of 5 had a wonderful vacation!
Spanish revival in the Mediterranean
Beautiful grounds and property that made me feel like I was on the Mediterranean...... Fantastic pools, a garden of hammocks so you can sway in the evening breeze, perfectly manicured and all in the heart of La Quinta. Extremely close to all the golf courses and downtown La Quinta. Owner was super nice and helpful!! Thank you. My wife and I enjoyed the two weeks we spent in your place. Cheers!!
Great week with great accommodations
Myself, my wife and another couple spent a week in this beautiful location and truly enjoyed ourselves. We have already started talking about going back next year and after seeing our pictures of the accommodations and grounds our friends are asking for Daniel's contact information.
Everything was great from the rooms to the location of the numerous pools we visited daily.
We are highly recommending this owner and location.....
Adjacent to the Waldorf Astoria La Quinta Resort and Spa at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains. One mile from Old Town La Quinta (downtown).
