Fantastic casita

  • 5 of 5

Once again, the Walton's have enabled us with a wonderful experience. The casita remains an absolute delight, and the extra amenities (snacks, water and drinks in the fridge, etc) make it a very special place to rent. It is perfectly located to be quiet and secluded at night, but right in the heart of shopping, dining and golf. It is a perfect place, which we certainly intend to visit again and again.

This is our second time staying in this beautiful home and we'll definitely will be back. It's always a treat to open that refrigerator door and look at all the assorted beverages.

Bill and Joanne are wonderful hosts extremely helpful but not intrusive....

Thank you again,

Lloyd and Jan

A Secluded Oasis in the Sonoran Desert. A Comfortable Southwestern Style Casita.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location to enjoy the Sonoran Desert while being close to all the amenities of Scottsdale and the attractions of Cave Creek and Carefree. We were able to spend five wonderful weeks at this Casita with it's own secluded, fenced cactus garden (including a mature Saguaro) which we enjoyed from the covered, wrap-around patio. The fire pit was ideal for the cooler evenings and we saw spectacular sunsets from the observation deck and also watched the patrolling coyotes.

Our hosts, Bill and Joanne, gave us a warm welcome and ensured that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. They paid close attention to every detail and provided a wonderful selection of drinks, and wine, plus a large, loaded welcome basket. Lynn had to work while we were there and Bill helped set up the high speed internet, which was fast and reliable. The hosts lived next door which means that they are available if anything needs attention.

The accommodation was very comfortable and everything worked well. The place was spotless on our arrival. There were plentiful supplies of consumable items, towels, linen and bedding. The kitchen was well equipped and we did a lot of cooking, as well as enjoying the many local restaurants. We bought a slow cooker with us, but there was one there already!

We had Amber, our Golden Retriever, with us and she was welcomed and she loved the fenced garden as well as all the local walks in the neighbourhood and meeting the local horses and dogs. There are many good trails in the mountains just a short car ride away and we tried to take Amber on one every day.

There were a couple of well maintained bikes and I enjoyed riding up Pima Road to Carefree. There was a DVD player and we were able to see a number of classic movies from Bill's collection.

Overall it was a most enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Casita and we would stay there again if we can muster the spirit for the five day drive from Ottawa, Canada. Many thanks to Joanne and Bill.
