Beautiful desert retreat
"My wife and I, who have visited this area several times, decided for this trip to rent a house in the desert. We both are nature seekers and found this wonderful home to be exactly what the doctor ordered for winter weary bones. Deer, rabbits, an abundance of birds including raptors, visited our backyard vista on a daily basis. We became so familiar with the ten or so deer that we almost named them. One morning, my wife and I viewed a coyote very quickly traversing the wash that runs past the back fence.
If you are after quiet, a lovely home with a comfortable southwestern feel, then you have found your vacation. And the pool, despite the cool weather, was pleasantly heated and a nice place to relax."

"Our stay at this home could not have been any better and was more than what we imagined. The owners ensured the home was well stocked and we felt very safe while vacationing here. This is a beautiful and highly appointed decorated home. During our stay we saw at least 12 Javelinas, 2 coyotes, 1 bobcat, numerous bunnies, quail and roadrunners. The property is well maintained with the spa personnel and lawn personnel making sure everything is in working order and landscaped.
We came to The Boulders to enjoy the desert golf and we were not disappointed. We plan a return trip in 2015 and would have no concerns in recommending this property to others."

Looking for a Great Place to Stay....Look no further
"This is our second stay at this property and I can guarantee we will be back again. Last year we stayed for 1 week and since we had such a great time we decided to come back this year for 3 weeks. It is located close to grocery stores, golf courses, awesome restaurants, 3 minutes away from Walmart, 15 minutes away from Costco, and the list goes on and on....This property has everything one would need to make your stay away from home is perfect (ex. every possible kitchen item you would ever need). The beds are extremely comfortable and the house is decorated in a charming southwest style. The hot tub and heated pool are absolutely incredible; my kids had an absolute blast and one even learned to swim during our stay. The owners are amazing and respond to emails within an hour (at maximum). They even shipped an item that I accidentally left behind back to my home in Canada free of charge. My wife and I are frequent travelers and this is one of our favorite places to stay. I have recommended this place to numerous friends and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice quite, relaxing, worry free vacation in the Phoenix area."

"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??"
