  • Relaxing Retreat!!!

    "I had the opportunity to stay a week in February, 2014. The weather was wonderful and the retreat was extremely comfortable. We enjoyed spending time in the cozy indoors and also enjoyed mornings and evenings on the large patio, viewing sunrises and sunsets of the Catalina mountains. The location was in the midst of great golf courses, walking trails out side our door, wonderful restaurants, healthy grocery stores, and great shopping. Our retreat had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed that it was in a gated community with beautiful views of the mountains. Hiking in the mountains, bike riding, and exploring small art villages were also fun adventures for us. Very quiet, peaceful, and lots to do in the area."

  • Fantastic home with ideal location!!!

    "Beautiful home with stunning backyard views! Actual views are better than photos. Home is well kept and very clean! Owners have a nice touch...they stock many household products in the rental (helps w/ grocery bill). We loved the location away from Big city traffic but still close enough for an easy drive. Thank you Pam and Brent for a relaxing stay in your beautiful home!"

  • Great Home!

    "My group and I had such an amazing time at this rental! The kudos would not stop, as it was I who was in charge of finding the perfect rental for our Memorial Day weekend getaway, and it is safe to say that I was "the man" for the duration of our trip. The game room (yes, I won my fair share of pool games), pool and jacuzzi were some of our go-to activities while at the house, not to mention its great proximity to the lake. This was our first time visiting Havasu and we had such an amazing time the group suggested making it an annual trip and for this rental to be a must-have when we come again. If you're planning a trip to Havasu be sure to book this property, as it will not disappoint."

Arizona Travel Tips

No trip to Arizona would be complete without a visit to the Grand Canyon, yet this Southwestern state packs a whole lot more of a punch than that. With a vibrant nightlife in Phoenix, red sandstone formations in Sedona and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona is meant for the adventurous.

Grand Canyon

One of the seven wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon lives up to its reputation of utmost sublimity. A whopping five million people visit the canyon each year to hike the trails and ride mules through through the gorge. The South Rim presents vistas of the Colorado River bending through the bottom, although you can avoid the tourist crowds at North Rim where the evergreen forests take over. At its peak, the park reaches 9,200 feet above sea level. It consists of the major ecosystems that make it a stomping grounds for biological diversity. Eighty-nine mammal species, more than 373 species of birds, 47 reptile varieties, and 17 fish species live in the park. As the sun sets, you’ll be sure to see the shades of red change over the layers of stratification. It is one of those breathtaking natural structures that when you stand on the edge of the precipice, there is nothing but an awe-stricken feeling that’ll tingle up your spine.

Phoenix

The biggest city and capital of Arizona, Phoenix is a place where the sun shines hot and a lot. To get your day started, head down to the Desert Botanical to check out more than 50,000 desert plants along five thematic trails. For contemporary art, the Phoenix Art Museum not only offers a palette of international variety, but presents live performances, festivals and independent art films.

Baseball fans, be sure to catch a Diamondbacks game in the first baseball facility to come equipped with a retractable roof. It can close within five minutes! You won’t want to miss a taste of true Southwestern horseback riding on an insightful tour at Western Destinations. It’ll make you feel like you’re on the set of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," or at least something close to it.

Hot Air Balloon Rides: You’ve always said you wanted to do it, you’ve even dreamed of it once, and now it is finally your chance to take to the skies. Skim the clouds on 2 Fly Us Hot Air Balloon in Deer Valley Airport. It is perfect for romantic couples.

If you’re looking for a fun activity for your kids, bring them to the Phoenix Children’s Museum for hands-on science and medical exhibit, and the waterworks area on the first floor. In downtown Phoenix, dine among the greats at the award-winning Teeter House for killer Japanese food that’s so elegantly prepared it could also be considered art.

Tucson

Situated in Pima County, Tucson boasts a wealth of things to do. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a must-visit if you’re looking to see amazing natural wildlife and aromatic botanical gardens. It combines a zoo with a natural history museum that’ll keep you occupied for hours.

Critically acclaimed as “The Best Show In Tucson,” Carnival Illusion Visit provides a magical experience, and the tricks and surprises will leave you floored. The tickets have been known to sell out months in advance, so book yours as soon as possible.

All-star musicians and tone-deaf friends who appreciate music, visit the Musical Instrument Museum that highlights instruments from around the world as well as a 299-seat theater that hosts a variety of jazz, world, classical and contemporary artists regularly.

Love the thrill of going fast? Bring yourself and your speed-demon kids to one of the largest air and space museums in the world at the Pima Air & Space Museum. Airplane buffs and fast-speed geeks alike will love it.

To free your rogue side, hike up Camelback Mountain for a tough, yet rewarding, climb. Lastly, for eats, swing by Vivace for tasty casual dining, or Cafe Poca Cosa to top off the day with a house margarita and Mexican seafood.

Sedona

Renowned for its bright red sandstone and endless activities, Sedona is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state. There are a string of great hiking trails that each exude their own personality and natural beauty. Some of the favorites are Cathedral Rock, an iconic geologic formation that offers spectacular views from the top, the Bell Rock Pathway, a 3.5 mile hike for the more laid back hikers, and the A.B. Young Trail, which boasts 5 miles of switchbacks for the experts.

Sip of a taste of local flavor as you tour through the wineries, learn about the historic settlers that made the town what it is today at the Sedona Heritage Museum or admire the bizarre energy vortexes that send the branches of juniper trees twisting to their tops all over town. Sedona is an outdoor playground all-year round that you don’t want to miss.

The terrain might be mainly desert, but there’ll be no drought of activities on your sunny, stunning and fun-filled Arizona vacation.
