Beautiful home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this beautiful house. Perfectly laid out for my mom, sister and I to enjoy a girls week. The décor is lovely and house has everything you need to feel very comfortable. Very quiet neighbourhood and the backyard is serene and relaxing.

Great vacation property for families

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a two week stay at this property. The home and beautiful back yard were beyond our expectations. We stayed along with our daughters and two grandsons. There was plenty of room for all. The boys had a great time in the salt water pool and playing on the ping pong table in the garage.

The private back yard has a large covered area which is great for staying cool during the warm days. We ate every meal outside and made good use of the barbecue as well.

The master suite is very large with a huge en-suite and plenty of closet space.

I would highly recommend this property for a relaxing or fun time in the desert!

Ron and family from Vancouver.

it is a beautiful up to date very comfortable and luxurious home.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, niece and I came here to have a girls get away weekend and love it. We felt like the house had everything we could possibly need. It was decorated so nice and designer approved in every way. We felt like we were living like Queens for the 2 days we were there. The salt water system pool is great so refreshing and the temperature was perfect. We definitely will plan another trip back here and recommend it to all our friends. Thank you to the owner Gail who was a big help whenever we needed it!

Relaxing place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderfully clean and prepared, earlier then anticipated. The house was fully stocked with anything you might need. The kitchen had the most cooking utensils in terms of whatever you might need to prepare anything, compared to any other place we have rented.

Gail has provided a very detailed book with directions on everything in the house, places to eat and even the nearest hospital in case of an emergency. She was easy to reach, very helpful and accommodating! Thank you for such a relaxing stay to celebrate with the family!
