Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two month stay at 2478 Hillside was initially a stop between homes that turned into a vacation that enabled my wife and I to continue our Prescott activities. The location in Prescott Canyon had great views, sunsets, and wildlife which Prescott has in abundance. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Arizona Room for her art and writing. The Community Clubhouse has all the amenities needed for physical activity; also, we found the home owners to be very friendly. The Potter's and their agent anticipated our needs in a positive way. We ould definitely stay here again.

Greg & Shirley's stay 1.1-3.31.17

  • 4 of 5

This was our 4th year for renting this property in PCE. We enjoyed this years stay as we have the passed 3 years. Disappointing that the club house pool was closed due to repairs. We only attended water aerobics 2 times this year (2017). We normally attend every M,W&F each week while we are renting Jan.-Mar. Potters are excellent landlords. They update the rental and the property is kept clean and very livable for our enjoyment. We have met many great people that live/rent in CPE at BINGO which is held in the clubhouse. This year I enjoyed the quilting class offered once a week at the clubhouse. Looking forward to next years stay Jan. 14-Mar. 31, 2018.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Reading the previous reviews of this particular property, we find it challenging to find additional comments to share about this wonderful place. Barbara and Ernie have thought of everything to make their home inviting, comfortable, well-stocked, organized, and immaculate. This place has everything one needs for any type of vacation: a home with a beautiful view; a quiet community with friendly, helpful people; a clubhouse that offers an indoor pool and hottub, billiards table, card tables, kitchen, tv room, library to borrow books games and puzzles; a multi-purpose room; as well as a tennis and a shuffleboard court. The clubhouse also holds activities like card games, Mah Jong, water aerobics, monthly breakfasts, and (in our time frame) a holiday party; all of which we were invited to join during our stay. A monthly calendar lets you know what is happening and when it is happening. It was truly a home-away-from-home for us. Our arrival was met with a box of chocolates from Prescott Pralines, such a sweet gesture from our gracious hosts. Prescottt has so much to offer, and this home was a great central location for all of it. We have been considering Prescott as a retirement location and our stay in this wonderful home has pretty much sealed that desire. We appreciate the incredible experience we enjoyed here, and highly recommend this property.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I moved from Las Vegas to Prescott the first of October 2015. We left our things in storage back in the desert and booked this vacation rental for three months to become more familiar with the area before we made the leap to live here permanently.

The house was perfect for us. The owners are extremely helpful and provided everything to make our stay comfortable and trouble-free. The setting is beautiful and serene. The views and sunsets are incredible. The location is great for exploring Prescott and the surrounding areas.

We have a small dog so securing a pet-friendly rental was at the top of our list. Our pooch loved her long walks around the property. She was also extremely excited to see the neighborhood rabbits and deer.

Thanks to our great accommodations and enjoyable stay we now know Prescott is the place we want to call home!

An incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and have availed ourselves of the VRBO site many times. We can honestly say that this was the best experience ever! We spent the month of April, 2015 here, and were delighted with everything it had to offer. The pictures do not come anywhere close to doing it justice. Everything we could possibly need or want was available to us. All the amenities of home, and then some. We were impressed with the quietness. No traffic noise, no loud neighbors, just peace and quiet. Barbara and Ernie were excellent landlords, and were available for any and all questions, of which there were few. The clubhouse was amazing, although we spent little time there, as we were so busy exploring the area. It was actually a fact finding mission for us, with the possibility of retirement in that region in the future. Trips to the Grand Canyon, Old Tucson and Jerome were easily within reach. The amenities were numerous. Barbara and Ernie really did think of everything--even a sewing kit, a first aid kit and a binder containing information on all of the appliances, etc. The home was in close proximity to many restaurants, shopping centers, and not far from the town square which we visited often. This would definitely be out first choice for a great place to stay should we have such a need in the future. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!!

Beautiful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd winter stay at the same address. Last year we stayed Jan. & Feb. This year we stayed Jan., Feb., & Mar. because we enjoyed it so much here. The owners, Barb & Ernie, are the nicest landlords you could ask for. Their home is completely furnished and well taken care of. They provide all the necessaties, including bath towels, laundry soap, dish soap, even toilet paper. They even give you a box of chocolates to start your stay. The weather is wonderful. The hikng trails in the mountains are exciting. The people here are very friendly. The scenery is fantastic. We'll be back next year!
