Perfect retreat from the East Coast Bomb-cyclone!

  • 5 of 5

James was so professional and kind in ensuring our stay was perfect. The home was well furnished and immaculate upon arrival. He gave us a great tour of their home and instructions on using the hot tub, TV etc. He was always available to answer questions about restaurants and driving directions. The daily sunsets were phenomenal. We really enjoyed the towns of Cave Creek and Carefree. The bullriding at the Buffalo Chip was great entertainment and we even returned there on Sunday for church! Great BBQ at Bryan's, milkshakes at BIg Earl's Greasy Eats! Would definitely recommend to a group or family looking for a spacious and lovely home.

Well maintained, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This property lived up to all our expectations. We rented for Thanksgiving week and our adult children and their spouses joined us. The home was well maintained, the kitchen well stocked for cooking. Ideal for a large group- bedrooms had their own bathrooms, the living area was large and the theater room was a big hit, especially for football game viewing. The owner was very responsive. Met us at the home and went over all the instructions. Also had written instructions. The pool heater did break down while we were there but the owner reimbursed us the fee for heater and also offered us a pool to use at another property. Grocery shopping, golf and hiking are convenient to the property. A trip into Scottsdale is 30 minutes and the airport is 45-50. We would highly recommend staying in this beautiful home.

F A B U L O U S!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. We are from Georgia But, My husband won a private jet vacation from work and we got to take 4 more family members with us, finding this vacation home topped it all. Not only is the area beautiful, but the setting where the home is, is something else. Every morning we were there, we would look out the big windows in the living room area and you would see hot air balloons... what a beautiful site. The evening sunsets were like post cards.

The home was a 10 + for us, first class all the way. Everyone had their own private suite, the kitchen and living room area is breath taking, no bumping elbows in there. The owners made it possible for us to order groceries before we got there, so there was no grocery shopping needed. (LOVED IT) In the evenings there's nothing like dipping in the hot tub. (you need the hot tub if you go horseback riding for the first time in 20 years LOL) Thank you so much James and Cynthia for making it all a truly amazing vacation stay. WE WILL BE BACK :-)

Your Dream Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have selected a better place to celebrate milestone birthdays and our 35th wedding anniversary with our adult children. The home is beautifully appointed and set in a spectacular location. Like other reviewers, hiking trails both inside the community and minutes away by car provide virtually limitless opportunities to explore. Sunrises and sunsets were magnificent! Cave Creek is just a few minutes away and although there are numerous golf courses in the community, lovely courses just a bit further out are far more economical and likely just as beautiful. Owners couldn't have been more hospitable. We hired a private chef to prepare dinner one night and the kitchen was the perfect setting for a lively evening! Close enough to get to the Grand Canyon (with a little effort), easy to get to Cactus League baseball games, but lovely enough to just sit around and stare into space! Not sure when we'll return to Scottsdale, but this was a dream come true for all of us.

Perfect stay on Desert Mountain- Scottsdale, AZ

  • 5 of 5

We spent spring break at this spectacular home. The home is luxurious - no detail overlooked from the stunning panoramic views of the mountains, the outdoor living space with pool and hot tub, the theatre room, large kitchen and gathering space and beautiful decor throughout! The home has a beautiful layout .Our four children ages 14-18 loved the home as much as we did! The Kolanders were extremely attentive, helpful and available throughout our stay, ensuring that all of our needs were met and questions were answered. We have stayed in many VRBO homes but have never met such friendly and accommodating owners. The hiking was fantastic- many trails just a short distance from the home. No need to travel to Camelback Mountain to hike - plenty of private, challenging trails right on Desert Mountain. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub daily, along with the surround sound music system. The workout room is awesome! Theatre room was a big hit, especially with the kids. The surrounding area of this home is spectacular- paved trails for walking or jogging and plenty of beautiful scenery to take in. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful home and look forward to returning next year!
