This was our first VRBO experience and it was nothing short of perfect.

About Dana: She was professional, informative and responsive. As a businesswoman, I appreciated her initiative to provide clear, concise information throughout the rental process. As a guest, I benefitted from her dedication to customer service and goal of making certain her guests are comfortable while the property meets their expectations.

About the property: Gorgeous. Beautiful mountain views, private, comfortable, and well-maintained. We arrived with only our clothing and wanted for nothing while guests at this fantastic home. I cooked Thanksgiving dinner and had all the cookware, spices, and baking items necessary to create a full meal. The beds and pillows were so comfortable (I'm a difficult person to please in this area) - I couldn't believe how well we all slept. My 3 daughters (ages 17 to 22) appreciated the Netflix availability and loved exploring the downtown area that was only minutes away. We hiked Thumb Butte (Prescott National Forest with its ton of walking trails is only 5 minutes away) and enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, which was a great workout considering how hilly it is. I can't say enough about how wonderful this home and experience was for us. It went beyond my expectations and I only wish I had booked Dana's home for our Christmas vacation, too! In fact, the girls and I wondered at what price Dana would sell her home and furnishings to us - lol!

Bottom line: Recommend without ANY reservations, whatsoever. Thank you, Dana, for your part in making this a carefree, warm & cozy family holiday. Kim Cox

Owner's Response: It is a difficult experience to capture in words. The day I walked in the front door, after 6 months of house hunting, I knew it was the one. Everyone marvels at the sleep quality, the home invokes, but I still believe it takes special people to feel it, to see it. Yesterday, after Kim and the girls checked out, we put up the Christmas tree, watching snow fall out of the sky. There is something magical about the sparkling lights of a Christmas tree seasoned with the first snow of the year. In Prescott the snow is decorative, rather than a cumbersome burden. It melts by late morning most of the time. Kim thank you for sharing. May all of you have a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to your return. You are wonderful, neat and tidy guests.

Casa Tranquila Offers a Charming & Classy Respite

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes up north several times; some were nice, others definitely did not reflect pictures that were showcased on their advertisement. THIS home offers chalet-like elegance, charm, class and comfort. Every room and corner provides a tranquil space to escape daily stressors or troubles through the beautiful and peaceful views, a diverse library for readers, the warmth of a fireplace and relaxing candle scents, and cozy & spiritual, serene surroundings embrace you and those with whom you have chosen to share this wonderful experience! The attention to detail is indicative of both the owner's care for her home and the guests she so graciously shares this place with. We hadn't even left the property yet before my husband and I said "when can we come back?" And we booked our next visit right then! Our two Golden Retrievers, our oldest son, his wife and 7 week old baby, along with our younger son and a buddy enjoyed a morning hike up Thumb Butte, and we took advantage of this family time to take our Holiday 2016 family photo in this gorgeous setting! Thank you, Dana, for setting the bar high on this magnificent rental and being so responsive, professional and easy to work with! We are proud to be part of the Casa Tranquila family and feel very blessed to have found you and your special home! Many thanks for the perfect peaceful get-away! See you again soon!

Owner's Response: It's people like you that make this a pleasant experience. Thank you for leaving the house in such a tidy condition. We truly look forward to your holiday return. Mike thank you for pulling the two weeds that had grown in the dog area. Mary, can we clone him? What incredible guests you are. Thank you. Pax vobiscum

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing stay at Casa Tranquilo. The home was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. My husband spent a great deal of time in the den watching football. The views were amazing from every window. The home was private and there was tons of space for the five of us. I highly recommend this home to anyone who's looking to get away from it all. We also enjoyed the close proximity to town. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We had a wonderful time.

Relaxing, private, suoer stay!

  • 5 of 5

Dana, though we knew we had found what we were sure was the perfect retreat for us after reading reviews and seeing the pictures, we were still very pleasantly surprised at how serene and beautiful and private Casa Tranquilo was! Every window provided more candy for our eyes! We loved the elevation and view off of the deck....a favorite place to enjoy our morning coffee, and watching afternoon showers come and go.

I loved devotions at the desk in the lower level den, overlooking Thumb Butte and watching the butterflies and hummingbirds at the " "butterfly bush"!

Meals were a joy to prepare in the well appointed kitchen, while overlooking the hillsides leading down to town.....which says a lot from me because I don't usually enjoy kitchen duty! The jacuzzi was also greatly appreciated and enjoyed by my guest.

Thank you Dana, for the opportunity to enjoy your home which you obviously and deservedly take great pride in!

Owner's Response: The only sad thing about your visit, is that I didn't get to meet you. Even in our limited communication, it became obvious that you and your guests are very special people. Thank you for leaving the house cleaner than you came. It was a pleasure to stay in the house after you were there. Great energy.❤️

This property is fabulous. The home is beautiful, well furnished, well stocked with all of the necessary supplies you could possibly think of. The view off the back deck is spectacular, we spent most of our time out there. The pet area is great. We saw deer twice, it was great. This place is a must for visitors to Prescott.

The serenity is felt the moment you walk through the door. Everyone present enjoyed the beauty of the house and surroundings. This is a unique, wonderful, beautiful home, all that you say it is and more.

The main floor has a kitchen with a formal dining area, living room, study, master bed and bath and a half bath. What we called the quiet room is a study that transforms to a bedroom. The pull out bed is not your normal run of the mill mattress you actually can have a good night sleep without bars poking you in the back. There is also a master bedroom with bath and lounge area attached and a fireplace. I am sure if you visit in the winter having a nice fire to warm your room would be very romantic.

We referred to the lower level as an extra apartment, there are two bedrooms and two baths locate on this level.

The house has many areas to congregate two porches, and several dinning tables were our girls held tea parties. Many nights we sat on the porch listening to the whispering pines. We hope to return some day!

The only con is the ice maker does not work, although you will be warned of this in the paperwork the owner sends you in advance so just buy some ice there is plenty room in the freezer.

Owner's Response: Thank you. The quiet room defies description with the flickering aspen leaves dancing in the wind. There is so much to discover in the quiet simplicity of the place. And, yes, the ice maker on the LG frig only makes 120 cubes in 24 hours. It is not broken. It was designed that way and came with the house - very frustrating. There are 8 ice cube trays and a plastic container, which we fill for each guest. It's a small defect in the face of all the fabulous attributes, but, alas, it is a defect.
