About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

This secluded, tranquil property is located on a south facing mountainside in Black Canyon City. This is the finest vacation rental in the area. 1200 square feet, 2 bedroom and 1 ½ bath completely outfitted with all brand new furniture, appliances, linens, right down to new kitchen utensils! We offer very comfortable living space with a minimum 7 night stay on luxurious memory foam beds. Pass through the great open concept living space and onto the large patio shaded with mature vines buzzing with humming birds. At last, a refreshing sparkling salt water pebble teck play pool. We even supply pool toys, loungers and towels. Outdoor living is at its best here at the Black Canyon Retreat. Enjoy the amazing local mountain views from the front porch while you sip your morning coffee and watch the local wildlife. Cook at the outdoor BBQ pit, serve your beverages from the tiki bar, take an afternoon nap in the shaded hammock, pick fresh oranges from the orchid or warm up on a cool night at the fire pit and watch the colourful sunset. High speed internet included for those of you who have a hard time relaxing.

If you feel like adventuring off the property, just walk out the driveway and enjoy endless miles of hiking or drive a few blocks down the road and experience world famous pie at Rock Springs. There’s even ATV and horse rentals nearby. You will find the Anthem Outlet malls and fine dining just 14 minutes down Hyw 17. Arizona’s sites are surprisingly close ; 30 minutes to Lake Pleasant, 60 minutes to Sedona, 35 minutes to Spring Training Baseball, 40 minutes to Super Bowl and 50 minutes to Sprint Cup Nascar and 2 ½ hours to the Grand Canyons.

Beautiful home with HUGE yard!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into the home, we knew we chose the right place. Cute living room, beautiful modern kitchen with many stocked items, two bedrooms, full bath. The property is huge, several acres. The front yard includes lemon and orange trees, fire pit area, front porch,and beautiful mountain views. The backyard is fenced and completely private with great pool, tiki hut, and grilling area. Lit up at night for evening fun.

Owners communicated with us and were very accommodating and answered any questions we had. Hope to come back again!

Our First VRBO, it Will be Tough to Top this Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't lie. This is a very special place. We planned on spending time in the Phoenix, Scottsdale area as well as heading north to Jerome, Sedona and Flagstaff. The location of this Black Canyon Retreat proved to be ideal for our itinerary. The house is great. Cozy living room, big open fully equipped Kitchen and comfortable beds. The Washer and Dryer are a huge plus as we were able to pack differently than any other trip we have been on in the past. The pool area and private grounds surrounding the house are very nice attracting a wide variety of birds and small mammals. My morning walks in the desert hills behind the house were wonderful. Mike and Dorothy are gracious guests and made sure our stay was as perfect as possible. We will return!

First class retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are from Seattle and were looking to pass the Christmas holidays away from home (and in the sun) for a change. We have used VBRO extensively in the past with few disappointments. This getaway certainly did not disappoint. The house is impeccably and extensively outfitted with everything one might need. The owners have taken great care to include all details needed for a very comfortable stay. The property is gated, secluded, and probably 2 or three acres. We enjoyed the location, venturing both north to see relatives in Camp Verde and south to visit friends in Cave Creek. We also visited Flagstaff, Jerome, Scottsdale, Anthem, and Carefree. It is good to be north of Phoenix, with so many places within an hour or so. But just hanging at the property works well too! It would have been nice if the pool had been heated, but we spent a lot of time just hanging around it anyway, reading, BBQing and enjoying cocktail hour. The temperature was around 75 during our entire 12 day stay. The owners were very easy to contact, which we only had to do a couple of times.

We hope to return in March/April and will be looking around the area to but a house to winter in. But until then, we hope to enjoy this one a few more times!

Thanks Mike and Dorothy!
