Lovely Desert Mountain Home with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home, perched high on the hill in Desert Mountain. The views and sunsets are incredible. The kitchen is well stocked. Great internet, and tv. The beds were so comfortable and the pillows are the best! There are two master suites both walk out to the pool area. The home is clean as a pin. My husband used the hot tub several times in the evening enjoying a cocktail and the stunning city lights views.

Perfect Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for the second year in a row. It is the perfect getaway. I stayed with a friend so we were happy there were two master suites which were both beautiful.

the furnishings are gorgeous and very high end. The house has everything you would ever need. The kitchen is very well stocked, there was nothing it lacked. There are four televisions, DVD players, and a DVR in the living room. The hottub overlooks a fabulous view of the city lights at night and a beautiful driving range in the daytime. We would love to rent here every winter as I can't think of a more perfect spot for those of us from the north. This is the best house we ever rented. The owner is wonderful to work with and very accommodating, they have always been easily reached by email, even when they themselves were on vacation. Great area for a varity of golf course choices.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week and wished we had booked a month. What a beautiful home with incredible views including gorgeous sunsets. We have rented homes from VRBO many times, from St. Maartin to Napa and this was one of the nicest. The only drawback is that you cannot golf the Desert Mountain courses unless you are with a member.

We look forward to returning.

Talk about the perfect house. All our expectations going into this (which were already high) were completely exceeded. Desert Mountain itself is an an often unknown gem north of Scottsdale we stumbled upon fortuitously.

This rental is amazing because...

#1. Views are to die for. Fiery sunsets, mountains ranges, Scottsdale city lights, lush and blooming saguaro green desert, all visible from your backyard, living room, gardens and private pool.

#2. Beautiful driving range 50 yard walk away, we used it every evening.

#3. Wildlife watcher's dream.

#4. Clean, modern home with lots of natural light.

The hosts have impeccable taste and we plan to model our own house based on their chosen furniture and art decor.

They should also teach a class on how to host a vacation rental. Everything is provided for you and easy to find. They even include an organized binder full of information about their home, local attractions and more.

The house is maintained perfectly. Best rental experience we've ever had, and can't wait to come back ASAP.

A must for your Desert Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have been to this amazing desert property. I brought my mother and 2 young girls for a "girls weekend get away" this past fall. We had so much fun we decided to bring the whole family back for spring break. The home is elegant yet comfortable for a family with kids. With suites on either side of the house we felt like we were staying in a luxury resort. The kids enjoyed the pool. The grown ups enjoyed the spectacular views of the mountains and city skyline, (the sunsets take your breath away). We all enjoyed the wildlife right outside the window everyday. There are easy hiking trails that the whole family can enjoy just minutes away, as well as a paved walkway through out all of Desert Mountain for a plesant stroll or a power walk. The fall was pretty, but the springtime is phenomenal. The Cacti were starting to bloom, I never knew the desert could be so colorful.

The owners are gracious and easy to work with. We will most definitely visit this property again and again.
