About Pat MacKenzie

I am a retired business owner and before that a school teacher. I am Canadian and reside also in a beach town outside of Vancouver ( just north of Seattle) called White Rock. My husband and I purchased this property to get out of the rain. We love it here in La Quinta, the desert has a beauty that is unmistakeable, and breath-taking.

The people are so welcoming, and the atmosphere just lends itself to a great outdoor lifestyle. Every day it is sunny and warm.

Pat MacKenzie purchased this studio in 2009

Why Pat MacKenzie chose La Quinta

We choose this property for its grace, elegance and extensive grounds and amenities. It is living in a resort.

Grapefruit trees are in the center of the paeso.

What makes this studio unique

This complex is tucked up against the Santa Rosa mountains, which change colors with the light. Just so very relaxing and secure we have a 24 hour manned gate.

Great, convenient, and well-appointed Studio

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Pat's Park View Studio at Legacy Villas. It was close to local amenities, such as the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, but also had resort-like amenities on the grounds, such as large pools, a gated entry, multiple walking paths, and tranquility. We stayed during the Indian Wells tennis tournament, so this was exactly what we needed. It has a well-stocked mini-kitchen area with mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker, sink, toaster, and dishes and utensils. The mini fridge doesn't have an ice maker, as most of them do not, but there is an ice machine up by the fitness center and main pool. We were very happy to use this on our way to sit in the sun and watch tennis each day. :) The unit has been updated very nicely, to include separated shower and bath, the mini kitchenette, a very comfy bed, dresser, fireplace, and cable tv that included the tennis channel (a plus for us; all tennis all the time!) Although we did not use them, there are hammocks for use up by the main pool. We also enjoyed the cabanas by the main pool. They are first-come, first use and provided comfy great shade for our pool time. Parking was first-come, first-serve, but we were able to find street parking that wasn't too far away. Oh, and we forgot an item, and Pat kindly mailed it to our home. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend either of the units Pat rents! Thank you, Pat!

Loved the little condo

  • 5 of 5

I never met Pat, the owner . But it was very easy to work with her . Everything was like described online . Very clean and the location was great . We rented it for the BNP Paribas tennis tournament. Was great for that . Also close to La Quinta Resort and all the hiking places . Highly recommend the place !

nice little spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this unit is great. It's very quiet. If you're only staying a few days as we were the closest place for food on foot is the La Quinta Resort. We used Uber to get around which was much less expensive than renting a car. However, we were there for the Indian Wells tennis so it worked out fine for us. The unit is equipped with a microwave and small fridge. The owner was very thoughtful in providing a few bottles of water which we really appreciated. She also provides the coffee pods for a Kuerig. I had brought drip coffee which I prefer but unbeknownst to the owner the carafe had a hole in it. She(Pat) is very attentive to any concerns one might have.

Great location and well thought out for the size of the space!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! Very safe and good location! The studio was clean, nicely furnished, well thought out and had everything we needed. Pool area in the complex was good and the patio at the unit was a nice place for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. Not a big place but it was very comfortable and suited our needs very well for our 4-day trip!

Car: necessary

A private ground floor Studio in Legacy Villas, which is adjacent to the Historical La Quinta Resort and Spa, a Waldorf Astoria hotel, and once formed part of that complex.

Our property grounds are extensive and the gardens are magnificent with hundreds of various cacti, palm trees as well as grapefruit trees, lemon and olive trees (non fruit bearing) . In January you can pick grapefruit and late February the air smells of new blossums.

This 24 hour secure gated complex boasts 12 sparking heated salt water pools and 19 fountains, a extensive gym and thousands of bougainvillaea flowers. Color and lushness are everywhere.

Legacy is a resort destination. It is a remarkable location to unwind. This cove is surrounded by the Santa Rosa mountains, ancient coral mountains that change color with the light, from pink to coral to brown, part of a national monument park.
