Overview

Photos and Description of this Phoenix holiday condo

Choose Casita Sunrise For Its Mountain Views And Excellent Location.

Set just a few miles north of Phoenix close to Cave Creek and Carefree, Casita Sunrise is conveniently located near emerald-green golf courses, scenic hiking trails, fine dining, local bars, plenty of southwestern cultural festivities, and is just minutes away from all the special events and venues of Phoenix.

With the 1000 sq. foot loft, you are afforded multiple views of what the desert has to offer. While you greet the sunrise out your front door, there is a good chance that along with seeing quail, cactus wren, doves and horses, you will also view a free hot air balloon air-show (many of the hot air balloon companies launch near our location). Looking north, your eye scans the many mountains surrounding the area. An occasional dusting of snow may cover the distant peaks. Don’t worry though; the midday desert warmth melts away any reminders of where you may be vacationing “from”.

The casita layout is open and inviting. Three large windows capture the desert and its surrounding foliage while also allowing for warm breezes to circulate throughout.

The kitchen amenities include a dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator, plenty of cabinet space and a granite breakfast ledge. A four chair table is just off the kitchen area.

The living room includes a flat screen tv, stereo, dvd player, sofa and two reading chairs. Need to setup your laptop or computer? Two professional-sized desks with chair is adjacent to main living space. Free wi-fi included.

The bedroom includes a king size bed, ample closet space, ceiling fan, multi-purpose desk and adjoining bathroom.

The bathroom consists of a full size stone-tile shower and linen closet.

Outside, enjoy sitting under a beautiful mesquite tree and watching the local desert dwellers scamper around the yard.

For your convenience, the casita owners are on the premises daily to help with travel ideas, local knowledge and other questions.

About Russell and Cynthia Eral

Cynthia and Russ have lived in and around Phoenix for over 20 years. Originally from Minnesota, they quickly grew to love the unique settings and experiences found only in the desert Southwest. Their hope is to help recreate some of those same memories for travelers wanting to stay a few days or snowbirds looking to stay a few weeks.

Russell and Cynthia Eral purchased this condo in 2010

Why Russell and Cynthia Eral chose Arizona

Location, Location, Location: Our property is unique in that you definitely know you are not in the city. With lots of wildlife and a peaceful setting, you are truly experiencing the desert.

But, with a quick drive south, you can also take part in the many activities provided by the Valley of the Sun. Head north and in a little over an hour, you can explore Sedona, Prescott and Jerome. We are also minutes from the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree.

What makes this condo unique

Hiking, golf, horseback riding, biking, balloon rides, shopping, fine dining, local bars and more.

Great location, wonderful owners

We love the Cave Creek area. This location is fabulous and Russ & Cynthia are such wonderful hosts. They are available for any needs yet provide all the privacy you can desire. We were so comfortable here and certainly recommend their casita to others.

excellent

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful and very quiet. Each morning we enjoyed watching the quails, and bunnies eating the grass. This property was all they advertised and more. We will rent from Casita Sunrise again. Loved it very charming!

Private, quiet, clean and airy interior.

  • 4 of 5

Yes, the property description was accurate to what we experienced. Convenient lay-out and clean. Owner, Russ, was very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this location to a friend who likes to be a little away from tourist hustle ( like us).

Enjoyed meals at near-by ' Heart and Soul' and 'Road Runner'.

Hiked Canyon Creek regional park and western town, too.

Stunning surroundings, all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casita Sunrise right off the Carefree Highway! Beautiful sophisticated accomodations. Comfortably furnished (excellent bed, awesome huge bath towels!!!). Well appointed kitchen and plenty of choices for groceries nearby allowed me to prepare meals at "home". Wifi and satellite tv kept us on the grid. The rural setting was quiet, peaceful and dark! Amazing stars at night! The surrounding landscape is beautiful and accessible. So much to see and do outdoors. Great photo ops everywhere! Our favorite viewpoint was above the Desert Hills Library! Cave Creek and Lake Pleasant Regional Parks are close by and are amazing. Close to all freeways so if you absolutely have to go into Phoenix, it's easy and quick to get back to the Casita. We loved it! Thanks Russ and Cynthia

Wonderful week at Casita Sunrise

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the apartment, it was very spacious and comfortable. It was so convenient to be able to cook our own meals, and relax in the evenings. We took advantage of the great golf courses, restaurants and shopping in the area and we found it very easy to get around. Russ and Cynthia were available with great suggestions and made sure we had everything we needed. We were treated to a display of the hot air balloons launching twice in one week - just spectacular. I would definitely recommend this to a couple looking for a getaway.
