Great property. Great Value.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in Legacy Villas, first time in this unit. It's an incredibly quiet complex, despite the number of villas in the compound. Skips unit was clean and spacious, and they were great communicators.

The architecture and lay-out of the grounds is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a week at Christmas and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The villa was as comfy as advertised. The managers of this property are very well organized and had our parking passes and those of our guests waiting at the gate. The Christmas decor of the property was beautiful, and the close proximity to La Quinta Resort was very handy. We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat! Many thanks to Skip for organizing a very smooth stay.

Beautiful condo complex!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The bed was comfy and the complex was very nice. We had planned to visit Palm Springs one day but instead just stayed around the complex and enjoyed the pools, hot tubs and fitness center. Beautifully maintained and wonderful customer service.

exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo for our family that traveled to Palm Desert for my fathers 80th Bday Bash. Clean, well appointed, and even had a fireplace in the master bedroom! It is much larger than the pics show and king size beds with comfy linens in both rooms. We did not have time to use the amenities, maybe next visit :)

Amazing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

If you even plan to be in the La Quinta area, look no further than this condo for a place to stay. It's warm, welcoming, immaculate and well-stocked. One thing I particularly liked is that the 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are very separate from one another, so there's a ton of privacy. The grounds are beyond compare and I think we lost count of the swimming pools. A final plus for this is the incredible service from the management company. They are responsive, professional and friendly. It's the only spot for us in La Quinta!
