Bedrooms 5
Space 2,400 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The house is located in a gated community on canals that lead out to the Colorado river. It is nicely located just off the main canal making for easy access to the river. The canals are 5 mph which makes for safe mooring of your boats an PWCs. It also makes for safe swimming or floating on rafts. The house has it's own private 50' dock right in front of the house. There are 2 levels of patio area. The main patio is at the water level. The second patio is off the second floor. The view from the second floor is towards the mountains and the large water area of the main canal where it forks. The house faces East giving it the advantage of afternoon shade during the hottest part of the day, but sun worshipers can still get the sun on the upper patio. This house is located right across the canal from my other house (The Pointe) making for a great set up for larger groups.

About Kathy Northcutt

I was born and raised in San Diego. We would go to the river near Yuma at Lake Martinez/ Fisher's Landing. We decided in 1990 that we wanted a house at the river but at that time you could only lease in that area. So we got in the car and started driving and trying to find a river house we could own. We found Moovalya Keys and fell in love. We put in an offer on a house that day. We spent all our free time there and our kids who were 2 and 4 grew up river rats. We proceeded to buy 2 more houses in Moovalya Keys but this is the house we spent all of our time in. We would come here year round. We had a lot of great times here.

Although my kids are now grown and we don't make it out to the river as a family anymore. I still come out once a month to check on the houses (I also own The Pointe #347966 which is right across the canal) and do maintenance and repairs. I have been a board member for the HOA since 2016 so I'm up to date on what is happening in the area.

I have been managing my houses since not long after we started renting them. Although we have tried using the real estate companies I preferred to handle the property management myself so I would know what kind of people were renting my houses. I have had some really great people rent my houses over the years and the majority of the people that rent from me have rented before and many come every year.

Why Kathy Northcutt chose Moovalya Keys

We loved how this house was different from all the other houses out there. When we bought it it was just a shell and had never been finished due to the owner dying. The house had sat abandoned for many years and most people figured we would tear it down and start over, but we loved the open floor plan that was so different from most of the houses out there. We also liked the location just off the main canal which made it much easier and quicker to get out to the river.

What makes this house unique

The house has 5 bedrooms so everyone can have their own bedroom instead of having to share. There's a huge living room and a large kitchen and the kitchen is open into the living room. The open floor plan is really nice. There are no hallways at all. There's an upstairs patio that's great for looking at the stars. The patio areas have a great view of the mountains. Since the house is just off the main canal you're not boxed in and can be out on the river in in less than 5 minutes

Park Place is the Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay here, and it was even better than the first time. 5 bedrooms and a great lay out with everything you need for a true home away from home, and love the new floors! If you need a big roomy place that is clean and well appointed in the Keys, this home is 5 stars. Thanks for another great stay Kathy!

The house was wonderful! The water front view was even better. My family and I have stayed here twice and it didn't disappoint. Can't wait to return!

Excellent time at Park Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time the accommodations were excellent. Kathy had said to me prior to our arriving that there was new tile being installed....the tile choice and craftsmanship were great. The ability to park both our boats along the 50' long dock side was convenient and easy. The second story deck overlooking the keys was a first for us and a special treat. The kitchen was large and very easy to prepare and cook food. There was plenty of seating inside however we spent most of our time outside enjoying the keys with the occasional boater and paddle boarder cruising past. This was a very enjoyable house and we will be renting the house again. Thanks Kathy!!!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and we had a great time. The house was very comfortable and roomy. We loved the view from the patio of the main canal and the mountains. The house had plenty of room for everyone and a huge living room. It was nice that no one had to share a bedroom since there were 5 bedrooms. We definitely plan on coming back.

Fantastic house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect. Very spacious and well stocked. The house is very nice inside and kept up well. Clean and comfortable. It has a great location just off the main canal. We were able to just back into the dock off the main canal and were able to be out on the river in a couple of minutes. Since the house is at the end you have a nice view of the mountains. We'll definitely be back. We loved it.

Water sports are the main activity in Parker. With the Parker Strip being deep and wide this makes it safe for all water sports and boat sizes. There is also parasailing available. Since the house has it's own dock and is connected to the Colorado River you can come and go at will. There are several floating bars along the Parker strip. There is also the Blue Water casino and Buckskin state park close by. When the weather is cooler there is Emerald Canyon golf course and many off road trails. In the winter months there is also the 'Desert Bar' out in the desert. Lake Havasu is less than an hour away with the famous London Bridge.
