About the property

4 bdrms -with den (incl 2 masters,), 3 ba, pool, spa, fire pit & BBQ

Welcome to our modern, updated ranch style home centrally located to Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale. Our little estate sits privately on over an acre in a quiet paved neighborhood near the corner of Lone Mountain and Cave Creek Rds.

You can take a tour at http://www.ranchotierraaz.com

**Please email us with weekly or monthly rental requests as we can only post the daily rates due to current systems way of calculating rentals.**

We are equine enthusiasts and our home reflects our love of horses. This spacious open floor plan has been comfortably furnished (everything in the house new in Jan-Feb 2015) for family enjoyment or small group gatherings. Please, this is not a party house. The master features a King bed and private patio, bdrm 2 has been remodeled to create a second master with direct access to hall bath and a quiet, private patio overlooking the back yard and fire pit area. It features a Queen bed and full size sofa/sleeper . Bedroom 3 features two memory foam twin beds. There is a queen sofa/sleeper in the 4th bdrm/den with private 3rd full bath and its own patio overlooking the pool. It's great for a kids play area as well with its own TV and access to back yard. This multipurpose room can be closed off from the rest of the house with massive custom barn doors creating sound barrier and complete privacy.

Lots of outdoor enjoyment spaces with small private splash pool (sorry it isn't heated), a new (Sept 2015) six person spa, faux grassy play area, built-in propane Bar B-Que, hot plate burners and prep area, meditation fish pond with waterfall and propane fire pit with semi circular seating for evening enjoyment and marshmellow roasts. The acre plus lot affords residents optimal privacy and plenty of parking without the seclusion of out of town suburban properties and dusty dirt roads. Groceries, restaurants, entertainment and shopping all in close proximity (5-20 minutes) with outdoor recreation opportunities all around in desert and mountain hiking, horseback riding facilities, lakes and rivers, several outstanding golfing opportunities, equestrian event center at Westworld, zoos, aquariums, butterfly pavilion, several casinos and so much more.

We would be honored to share our home with you and enhance your vacation experience or mini resident workshop, retreat or gathering of friends and family. There are two twin and one full air beds available for glamping indoors with your groups. Email us if you have any questions.

About Vicki

The Dobbs Family is the owner of this lovely rustic ranch home in the Desert Foothills North development in Cave Creek. Purchased for our family to enjoy when attending horseshows nearby, just getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life in CA and for our combined family get togethers. We hope you will enjoy our home when we are away.

Vicki purchased this house in 2014

Why Vicki chose Phoenix

Whether its a Pro Golf tournament, baseball spring training or your favorite team is playing the AZ Cardinals or the Diamondbacks, hiking, motorcycle mania or even a big event at Westworld, this home is centrally located for convenient outings to them all. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, there are lakes and rivers nearby and lots of desert and mountain hiking opportunities. Horseback riding is also available in the Cave Creek area. For the kids, we are within a30-45 minute drive of Phoenix Zoo, three aquariums, the butterfly pavilion, wildlife safari world and Legoland. For small gatherings/events (like a writers retreat or painting weekend) or just to hang out with a few friends, relax and enjoy the inviting desert communities of Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale, this home is waiting and provides a private, quiet sanctuary for your time away from your own homes. It is not a good place for weddings or larger parties, we are located in a quiet family friendly neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Fully fenced (block) yard area for private entertainment and relaxation, this home is located on over an acre of beautifully maintained desert land with natural open spaces between the homes where wildlife abounds. Watch the quail run along the fence tops, catch the bunnies early morning frolics, the butterflies and hummingbirds. Cactus wrens and woodpeckers add to the desert chorus. Listen to the coyotes sing you to sleep and watch out for the occasional javalina or bobcat that may be passing by. We are country quiet and city close.

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very impressed with our stay at Rancho Tierra. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, the spacious home is very well maintained and with beautiful outdoor surroundings. It had all the amenities that were stated. The decor is a wonderful western theme that made you feel very comfortable. For us the kitchen was a big plus, clean and well stocked. We would definitely recommend staying at this lovely home and we would book again. Thank you, Vicki !

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were amazing to work with and their home was breath takingly gorgeous! It was welcoming with all the amenities - we highly recommend these guys and their home, away, from home! The Koi fish were an added bonus and my 2 little grandkids were enchanted with them! My dad and mom were smitten with the bunnies in the front yard and the many many birds in the back! Coffee in the mornings out by the pool, so memorable! Thank you Vicki, love love loved our stay! Audree & Bob

Everything was as pictured. We had everything we needed. The yard was massive and great for kids and dogs.

Vicki and property manager Jim were instantly responsive and helpful.

Excellent location for relaxing and enjoying nature, yet close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed the home as it is well laid out inside and beautifully landscaped outside. You are in the country, which we prefer, which allowed us to enjoy nature, wild animals, birds, walks, the sound of running water in the goldfish pond and lots of quiet, however, you are also very close to anything you need. It is also a short ride to many attractions and shopping as well as the smaller towns of Care Free and Cave Creek, and only a short ride into Scottsdale, Glendale or Phoenix. The home and grounds are well maintained and supplied and Vicki was wonderful with directions, answering questions and making suggestions. We would highly recommend this property and would rent again in a minute when returning to the area.
