Best Experience do not pass up this beautiful home
I wanted to share our experience, it was so easy from booking our trip to our arrival and your quick response to all my questions. We so enjoyed the decor of the house and all of its amenities. The bed super confortable and washer and dryer was such a plus. I was able to work from the office without any issues. Friends live in Terravita and were married at the Club house which made it very convenient. Stores and restaurants are right outside the gate. Unfortunately, we did not to get to enjoy the well kept pool because of the weather being so cool and a couple of rainy days. I would surely reccomend this home to anyone!!"

"A small golf vacation for a few guys to celebrate a son's/nephew’s 16th birthday turned into a full-blown vacation for 4 families with 17 people (8 adults, 9 kids between the ages of 5-16). Our biggest issue, where do we stay with all of these people? We needed to find something where the kids would be entertained and the adults could enjoy themselves. This vacation probably would not have happened if we did not find John's house in Cave Creek.
The pictures you see do not do this property justice - the house is magnificent. Great open entertaining space, 1st class gourmet kitchen, beautiful dining room w/ mountain views, master suite you have to see to believe! Accommodations were perfect for our group and every aspect of the house was enjoyed – you truly did not have to leave (and we only did once!) Amenities were all first class – outdoor pool area w/ swim up bar/grill; mini-golf (which the kids loved and was very fun); trampoline; basketball court; theatre room (w/ full bath that opened to the outside - key for the long days at the pool) and game room were all utilized to their max. Indoor/outdoor entertainment system completed the great entertainment package. John and his family tried to think of everything in this house and it is definitely an entertainers paradise.
For those familiar with the Phoenix area, Cave Creek is in a great spot for a vacation. Far enough north to be out of the hustle of the valley, you definitely feel secluded and away from the craziness of normal life, yet close enough to the necessary vacation amenities - golf, grocery stores and other necessities (like Starbucks) are all very close. We took a day trip to Sedona, and the ride was about an hour and a half, so its convenient to other local attractions too.
I am a home owner (as many of us are), so I always expect issues when I rent houses/villas (and I do it often) – key is for the owner to be responsive to these issues, and John definitely was. We did have a few issues and he took immediate ownership and worked hard to fix the situation. In one case, he could not get an AC issue resolved timely, so he catered a Mexican meal for our group on the final night! (Thanks John!)
Overall, an absolutely fabulous vacation in a great location at a wonderful house. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a private resort disguised as a house We didn’t even mind the 115 degree heat! Only question for my group is how quickly will we be able to return??"

The house was everything it looked to be from the pictures but even better
"We had a wonderful time! The house was everything it looked to be from the pictures but even better.
The bed and linens were so nice, I think my husband and I are in the market for a new mattress. He slept like a dream and has 5 herniated disks in his back which normally keep him tossing and turning all night. He was loving life. The set up was great, we loved the pool table and the kitchen was well stocked with all utensils and glasses we needed. We only used the pool once but the water was nice considering we did not use the heater.
The location was nice too… nice and quiet. It was the perfect getaway and we were very happy with our experience. Thank you so much for everything."

"We were visiting friends in Carefree for five days and wanted to stay close by so we were fortunate to find this condo at Rancho Manana Resort available on VRBO. The two bedroom lower unit was well furnished and stocked with just about everything you would need for an extended stay. There are three TV’s and reception is through Direct TV. The pool area was very pleasant and all the pool towels needed were provided at the pool. There was an onsite spa but it has been closed for over a year and according to the reception desk person there are no definite dates for opening a new spa. There is a golf course also onsite and it seemed to be very active. The onsite restaurant, Tonto Bar and Grill, had a great happy hour as well as great food for dinner.
There are also many restaurants within a short distance of the condo. If you are in to shopping for antiques, fine art and southwestern furniture, you will find several locations within the Cave Creek area. We enjoyed our stay and this will be our choice to stay, hopefully for more than five days, when we return to Cave Creek."
