Stunning home from home in Cave Creek
If you're looking for luxury in a peaceful setting then you've just found the perfect home rental just north of Scottsdale.
Araminta is stunningly beautiful from the moment you pull up on to the drive way and upon entering the property you realise the owners have gone to great lengths to ensure everything is perfect.
Packed with plenty of technical equipment, Araminita is an easy living home which is a delight to stay in and the deck and swimming pool area is amazing with the pool constantly heated to a perfect temperature.
We are already looking at dates to return and really can not wait to do so. Thank you to great host's Hakan and Kay. excellent, you have thought of absolutely everything to ensure guests have a fantastic time from start to finish.

Tranquil, elegant, beautifully decorated, truly relaxing.
One of the best properties we have stayed in (no exaggeration). The house is beautifully decorated, the linens are to die for and the gourmet kitchen has everything you could want and more. The garden is completely private and has so many areas to sit and read or sun bath or just lounge as gentle misters keep you cool. Pool is simply perfect, and there was even a full sized bocce court with night lights. Araminta House has all the elements you would expect to find at a luxury resort. The home owners Kay and Hakan are a wonderful couple who clearly love making visitors to their home welcome - nothing was too much trouble, they even lent us their golf clubs as we decided not to travel with ours. We highly recommend staying at Araminta House. We can’t wait to get back there is the Fall.
We had a great time in the awesome vacation home, which is very well supplied. There is more than everything available. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, but all amenities, like grocery stores, restaurants and so on are very close. The patio area and pool are very relaxing with a nice desert view. The landlords made always efforts giving us a complete satisfaction, thank you very much.
Amazing place to stay
We loved staying in this house and Kay and Hakan have truly thought of everything that you need while you are here. Pool was fantastic as was the desert views. We saw plenty of wildlife which was amazing and we made use of the bikes for our cycle rides when it was a little cooler. We loved the Cave Creek area. Would totally recommend staying here.
Great house and outside area. The owner was very helpful when we first arrived. Since we didn't have any issues which is a good thing we didn't have any more contact. The kitchen was the best stocked of any we've encountered in the past. The pool and the outside areas were second to none. The inside was very upscale, a cause of concern because we had two small children but we didn't cause any damage to this lovely home. It's location was superb close to restaurants etc but yet private.
Great vacation spot
Thank you Hakan and Kay for the use of your property. We had fabulous time in the area. House is very well supplied. There is abundance of everything from plates and utensils to towels. Excellent supply of consumables including soaps etc. Just show up with your clothes! House is located in a very quiet neighborhood but has easy access to all amenities grocery stores restaurants 5 to 10 minutes away. Lots to do in the area and many more activities can be assessed with a 30 minutes to 45 minute drive. For the kids pool is heated and we'll maintained with a good wifi connection, every kids wish. Patio area is relaxing and it's own little paradise. This was our first VRBO experience and we have absolutely no regrets. This is definitely in our plans for the future. Hakan and Kay were easily accessible and responded very quickly to our questions.
Araminta House is located where North Scottsdale and Phoenix meet Cave Creek and Carefree which means you get the best of Sonoran desert experience for hiking, biking and riding combined with closeness to urban conveniences like grocery stores, restaurants and bars. Our neighborhood is very safe with mainly large homes on even larger (1 acre+) lots. Going south we are about 40 minutes from the Sky Harbor Phoenix airport. Continuing south there is another 1.5h to Tucson or 2h to the Mexican border. Going north there is just under 2 hours to Sedona and then another 1.5h to the Grand Canyon south rim. If you have never been to Las Vegas, then it is only 5h away.
