A beautiful, spotless, well organized home. Perfect. I felt like I was living in a Crate and Barrel catalogue.

We spent a month in this wonderful home and it could not have worked out better. The home is very well appointed and in great shape. The pictures do not do it justice. Three generously sized bedrooms, each with a full bath. Two kings and two twins overall. The patio is expansive, with a fireplace, dining table, a large seating area with both a space heater and umbrella to deal with temperature changes, and additional chases for more serious lounging. The master, living room, and office all have direct access to the patio. The heated splash pool can be used as a spa. The patio provides westward views of beautiful sunsets nightly. A surprising extra bonus was access to the terrific Desert Mountain trail system, which is very well organized, is virtually devoid of other hikers, offers multiple challenging trails, and rewards the hiker with phenomenal vistas northward into the Tonto National Forest. We loved the home and will likely return. Thanks to the Copes for their hospitality!!!

A Peaceful Beautiful Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I feel fortunate to have "discovered" this property and from arrival to departure our stay was delightful. The home was very clean and the air conditioning had thoughtfully been turned on to enhance the initial welcome. We were pleased with the design/layout with a well-appointed kitchen and comfortably inviting living room and dining area. The master bedroom was splendid with a large comfortable bed, TV and fireplace (not used in September). The master bedroom included a spacious walk-in closet and a large bath area that included a comfortable tub for soaking and a separate walk-in shower with seat. The patio area with pool provided a serene desert terrain setting with great views. Unlike many of our rental stays the longer we stayed the more appreciative we became of how relaxing and welcoming this home was for us.

There is a binder with everything you need to know about the home as well as a lot of information about the local restaurants and other things to see and do in the area. Two restaurants stood out for us: Alberto's (Alberto is the owner who is very charming) and the Blu Burger Grill. Both offered excellent food, great service and friendly atmosphere. We also dined in often to maximize our feeling of how relaxing and peaceful the home was for us. This property definitely had the warmth of an owner-occupied home.

We would definitely stay at this lovely home again in the not-too-distant future.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We found this house very easy to feel at home and to live in. The kitchen as well as all the rooms had everything we needed. The house was spacious and clean and very beautiful. There were beautiful restful areas both inside and outside. The location, the scenery around the house and other houses nearby were lovely and picturesque. We would highly recommend this home to others and we would also return ourselves to stay here.
