About The Owner

Parents of 8 children and 24 grandkids.

Why The Owner chose Payson

When we set out to locate that ' special gathering place' for our large family we had a list of things we were looking for .First it had to be accessible to where we lived with a short drive from the Valley. It had to offer services that we would need, shopping, medical, entertainment and local culture. Next the property would have to be large and unique. I always wanted a property with private water rights, and a private pond. The last was a large grass lawn.

What makes this cabin unique

We appreciate the short one hour drive from the Phoenix area to the clean air of Payson, rated in the top 3 cities in the country for its clean air . The beautiful walks in the surrounding areas and enjoying wildlife that comes onto the property in the evenings is so unique.

Amazing experience for our group!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full weekend here with a group of young adults on retreat and the house was amazing! Our group of 23 was extremely comfortable and happy. We felt spoiled with all the little things this home has to offer.

We left our truck parked in the garage loaded with much of the gear we usually have to bring but realize we obviously overpacked for this beautiful HomeAway. The home was easy to heat and cool. Luxury accommodations throughout! Located in a rustic area with local stores and restaurants only a few minutes away.

Mark was both personable and professional throughout! He was always only a text message away and that was something I truly appreciated. We will definitely be back again!

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed several times and it is getting a bit rundown. It is not being kept up as it was in the past. Great space for a group of family, friends or co-workers. Would still stay.

Great Vacation Rental with tons of space!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for my 30th Birthday and brought along a total of 14 friends. There was plenty of room and big king size beds, so everyone slept comfortably. We cooked all of our food on the BBQ grill and in the kitchen. The only thing I would suggest to the owner, is to upgrade the old coffee pots to a Keurig. We went through a lot of coffee and it takes a while for the pots to brew. There was tons of seating outside, sports to play and hiking nearby. The Owner- Mark, was very easy to work with and super friendly. We hope to visit again someday!

Owner's Response: Hi Christina, Always great to hear that you and your family enjoyed the cabin. Congrats on your # 30 ! Hope to have you back again. I've passed along the coffee pot input to my team there. Thanks again, Mark

Perfect for large group with kids.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights with 8 couples and 15 kids. It was crazy but perfect for our group. The kids explored and fished in the pond. Every family had a room. The casita is great. The home is well stocked and lots of space to hang out and play. Lots of areas to walk. Close enough to town to get supplies as you need them. The owner, Mark, is quick to respond to questions and very helpful. Thanks Mark very much and we hope to stay again!
