Wonderful desert getaway with phenominal 180 views

  • 5 of 5

It's a great secluded getaway while we saw a few vehicles it was extremely private and just what we imagined it would be - a fabulous desert luxury home at the foot of Tonto National Forest. The house has everything you could imagine - an expert chefs kitchen delight with all the fixings, a master closet that is a woman's dream and fireplace in all the right places - master bedroom, poolside and in the living room. While we were able to see the sunsets from the roof top, the main attraction is the most beautiful sunrises that we were able to watch every morning with our coffee with 180 degree views of the mountains. If you are an early bird, this place is a MUST to enjoy the peaceful morning setting. We took lots of long walks in and around the Tonto National Park which made it really hard to venture out much more than that. Carl, Chad and Jen were amazing hosts and were quick to respond to any of our needs and provided a full detailed walkthrough of their amazing house upon arrival.

Amazing house, great golf!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Jen's house! We came for a week of golf but hated to leave the house it was so beautiful. Carl was a great host, answering questions and making sure we had everything we needed. We had 4 couples in our group and the house accommodated us nicely, each with private bedroom and bath. Great golfing very close by. I wouldn't recommend arriving after dark as the drive in can be confusing. We will definitely be back:)

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Pool and patio great for entertaining. No traffic noise. Very peaceful.

We loved to sit on the roof deck in the morning and evening. 360 degree mountain views.

Grocery store and restaurants on Pima convenient.

7 degrees cooler than Phoenix.

Carl was wonderful. He is the best owner we have ever rented from.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely fabulous!! Carl, the owner could not have been more helpful! It has all the amenities and the views are fabulous! You should probably plan on going over the propane allocation as it is beautiful to have all of the fire features on and you will need the propane to heat the pool and hot tub. It is well worth it though! It is out in the middle of no where, however, there is a neighbor with cows and horses right next door. You will need directions as a GPS is not accurate. It is about 30 minutes from a grocery store so make sure you get groceries on the way out. There are spices and condiments at the house already as previous guest usually leave the left overs.

Beautiful desert home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this beautiful desert home my wife and I are sure: this is one of the best houses we ever had. Everything is so tastefully arranged that you feel immediately that you are in a 5 star resort. Most of the time we stayed outside, from the sunrise at the observation deck with the first coffee to barbecues in the evening with these beautiful fire features. We would recommend to arrange first arrivals during daytime since the last 2,5 miles are unpaived and unlit. But the directions you get with the introduction mail is sufficient enough to find this remote place. The entire location is ideal to recharge your batteries and as well a good start to explore Arizona. We would recommend in any case the interesting desert botanical garden in Phoenix, the ApachiTrail and Sedona with the redrocks. The last are two nice easy daytrips. Scottsdale Oldtown is good for some nice restaurants and shopping. In the vicinity „AJ“ Supermarket is sufficient for all the needs during a comfortable stay in that home. As a special treet (for us the last evening to overcome the sadness that we have to return to cold Germany) reserve a veranda table at the „Talavera“ Restaurant in the Four Seasons Resort only 15 minutes away from the home. Fine food and a nice wine selection enjoyed during the special lighting at sundown. These nice warm lighting during sunset we enjoyed as well at the home will accompanie us in our memory. And the entire home fits perfectly to these earth colours and warmth. There was absolutely nothing we could complain of. With a small issue with a water pump we had we got immediate help and the introduction of the house features by Chad was very nice and friendly. Thank you very much for sharing this gem with us. We had a great time in and around it and only can highly recommend it to people looking for a peaceful, quiet and luxurious place to enjoy the desert.
