About Ken & Maria Arrick
I am a Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker with Lennar Homes. I previously worked 5 years for Four Seasons Resort at Troon North selling fractional/timeshare until sellout last April 2009. This experience at the ultra exclusive Four Seasons Toon, situated in the Sonoran Desert, provided the background for the decoration of this southwestern charmer in a truly old western theme.
Ken & Maria Arrick purchased this House in 2005
Why Ken & Maria Arrick chose Azure Hills Estates
We love Old Town of Cave Creek. One of the few Western Towns remaining in Arizona. Everything one could want to live near: fine dining, great galleries, shops and just a great old western town theme minus all the franchise type businesses except 2 that were establshed long ago. A really cool town! It is driving distance from the airport and the ultra chic Scottsdale, with all the elegant restaurants, shopping and theaters, andhowever far enough away to keep it from getting too crowded. Also driving distance to the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals sport complexes.
What makes this House unique
I love all the views from all the windows. Lots and lots of light. At night, you see and hear the moon, coyotes and owls. During the day, on numerous ocassions I have seen the deer that live in the gulch that runs through the back of our property. At night, it is so quiet and serene along with some fantastic Sunsets and Sunrises. You feel so out of the way of city life, yet close. The secluded feeling of the home setting takes you back to how it must of felt living in the West in the old days!
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect home to stay in to escape from reality. Their well appointed home is tucked back from town and offers lots of privacy and solitude. We spent a lot of time in the pool during our stay in the summer. Mostly, watching our daughter swim in the morning while drinking coffee or in the early afternoon as the suns intensity waned. Bird watching was easy from under the covered deck and the coyotes seemed to howl each evening around 8:30. Javelina we’re close and as we would find occasional hairs presumably carried by the wind in the pool. The town of Cave Creek is conveniently close with loads of unique shops and there are three grocery stores within a several mile radius. It’s an easy drive to some northern suburbs of Phoenix but expect at least a 45 minute commute to places such as Scottsdale. We tended to stay local and went horseback riding in the desert at a ranch that was just 10 minutes away. If traveling in the summer, anticipate waking up early to take advantage of the cool mornings for any hiking. We tended to stay inside midday and relax in their incredible home. Travertine flooring and fine furniture dominate and make you feel like your living in luxury. Ken and Maria are easy to contact and very responsive to any inquiries we had. We would, no doubt, like to stay in their home again if we end up traveling back to the Sonoran Desert.
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful secluded property
The house is well appointed with a very nice kitchen. The decorating was outstanding and really made us feel we were in the Southwest. The bed in the master was quite comfortable. The view was very nice from the most every room in the house. We wish we could have enjoyed the pool, but it was too cool (except for one guest)!
Beautiful desert retreat
Spent relaxing Christmas in the desert with family. Beautiful Christmas Eve dinner at El Cantada in Cave Creek! Few minor maintenance issues need attention but this is a lovely home in a great setting!
Relaxing stay in Cave Creek
We loved our time in Cave Creek. The house is convenient to town but also secluded. No back door neighbors is a plus. The home is clean and comfortable, we will definitely return!
They were a lovely family.
Cave Creek home
Nice quiet place to stay. Nice area, we had deer in the front yard.
We are glad you enjoyed your visit. Please come again.
My husband and I visit the area several times a year and usually stay in a hotel. We really wanted a different experience so we decided on a private vacation rental. What a great experience we had. The house is Southwestern decorated with an inviting pool for those hot summer days.
The Sonoran desert views are spectacular and if you love wildlife this is the place to be; coyotes, Javelina, quail, rabbits and lots of deer!
The area is peaceful and quiet but if you want more the drive is 5 minutes into the towns of Cavecreek & Carefree and 30 minutes to Lake Bartlett or downtown Scottsdale.
Definitely would stay here again.
Walking to an abundance of hiking trails. Fishing, boating, etc. @ Bartlett Lake about 15 minutes away.
