Cave Creek villa description

Come to your own Cave Creek AZ ranch to relax, swim in a private pool, and enjoy the serenity, spectacular views, golf, art, wildlife or adventure that awaits you in your own western ranch oasis. The Lucky 8 Ranch is located in the Sonoran Desert. This secluded ranch with all the comforts is just 1 mile from the 'Cowboys and Caviar' (including art galleries, restaurants, golf, and more) of Cave Creek and Carefree Arizona. Lucky 8 Ranch sits on two and a half acres of pristine desert and takes advantage of 360 degree mountain views.

Wake up with the desert and experience beautiful sunrises while enjoying a hot cup of cocoa, coffee, or hot tea, on your private porch, deck or rear deck off an office.

Head into 'town' and spend the afternoons shopping and dining in historical downtown Cave Creek or Carefree AZ, or if you prefer, relax poolside with your favorite book and a fresh brewed iced tea, spring water or iced coffee.

Brilliant sunsets and mountain views from the pool and the property alert you to watch for the excitement of the desert wildlife, and the crackle of a cowboy campfire just waiting for stories and tall tales. You'll especially enjoy the indoor and the rustic outdoor fireplaces.

But, you can also relax at the end of the day in front of hugh flat screen HD TV in the comfortable living room and enjoy a spacious master bedroom suite. There are two other western themed bedrooms which can be configured for two twins in each, or two king sized beds with sleep inducing pillow topped mattresses. Your dream rental is waiting for you.

Planning a golf adventure or meeting? The place is minutes from The Boulders, several awesome golf facilities, and is outfitted to serve as the perfect spot for a business meeting or mastermind.

              Cave Creek is an old western town. The NewYork Times travel section has dubbed it the intersection of 'cowboys (the old west) and caviar' (the new shopping and affluent vacation spot). Our little ranch is located only one mile from the town and all of it's restaurants, shopping and more. Yet it's also only a mile from horseback ridding and hiking. Great views in all directions.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: This is our family get away and the conforts show it. We're from the east coast but have always wanted a desert escape and oasis. This property is used by our adult children, our parents, and friends and several weeks of rental have been donated to our favorite charities. We know that you'll enjoy it as much as we all do.

              Why the Owner Chose Cave Creek:
              We bought this beautiful ranch property so that we could retire and keep horses right at home. But until we do, we love the hiking, trail riding (the trail goes right in front of the hose), unbelievable views, the awsesome town of Cave Creek and the golf and life style. The views are stunning with mountains in all directions and visible from the pool.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              This property has everything that a golf vacation, summer or winter get away, or a family trip needs to be what you've dreamed about. From the views, to the pool, to the fireplace, and cowboy fire kettle, to the art work, western themed rooms, spacious master, and wild life, you'll have one great experience after another. Close to town but out in the country. It has it all.
