About Tonia Wright

Raising four kids and running a business didn't allow much time for family vacations and family vacations for six are costly. My husband and I purchased the home as a vacation home for our family. We recently remodeled the home to have the atmosphere of a fine hotel with all the accommodations for a family vacation. It has been perfect for the varies ages of the children as you can be in the water and still see the house or cooking meals and still watch them at the water. Now the kids are all grown up and love to take their friends. After a decade it still is the perfect place to visit as a couple or bring the whole family for the week or weekend. I hope you family enjoys as much as we do. Hopefully, you will visit often and it will be your home away from home too.

Tonia Wright purchased this house in 2005

Why Tonia Wright chose Deserts

It is perfect for all ages! Family community to enjoy the river away from the party atmosphere with all the amenities of a Fine Hotel to have a enjoyable relaxing vacation. Or the perfect snow bird get away October -March.

A fabulous winter - All we could want or need

  • 4 of 5

We wintered for 3 months in Tonia's river home and it was everything that we could have wanted. Tonia is very easy to work with and ensures that you're comfortable with everything.

The home offers most all amenities you would require to run your home. House is very clean, updated, open and pleasant to live in. Lots of room!

The location on the Colorado river is awesome. Morning coffee/tea out the kitchen/livingroom sliding doors is spectacular with the sunrise and blue skies every morning. The sunshine most of the day along the river boardwalk as well as on the dock, lets you enjoy the sun as well as some shade later in the day. The beach is also available for use, or the larger public beach is just down the boardwalk.

Pool located across the road with keyed access. The area is kept very clean and well maintained.

We will definitely be back again and again.

Agree not Boater/water toy friendly

  • 1 of 5

I agree this place is not boater friendly. We stayed here back in April. I would consider the place more a condo then a house on River. The place itself inside is equipped with everything and very clean and nice, however if you plan to bring a boat or water toys I would not recommend. Parking is a nightmare and we had to unhitch our trailer from the truck each night and hope we would get 2 parking spots when we came back in from the day on the water. The owner was very nice, however neighbors in the community appear to be very nosy. If you don't plan on bringing water toys it's fine but if u are a river goer with boats this place is a no go.

VERY BOATER UNFRIENDLY COMMUNITY

  • 1 of 5

The place is nice, but the community must not like renters, and if you have toys this place is not for you, i got a tex from the owner half way through our week stay complaining about the parking and my boats, even though they were anchored away from anyones property, and there was not anyone staying on either side of us, the complex was empty maybe 3-4 units had people, they allow up to 8 people but no toy's and the parking is poor, i could not get my 30' boat into the complex and had to rent a storage place to put the trailer, there were only 4 of us, we were gone most of the time and were quiet when we were there, so why did the owner tex me, SOMEONE IN THAT COMPLEX DOES NOT LIKE RENTER'S, i talked to the owner personally before i rented the place, i told her what i had and she assured me that everything would fit and there was plenty of parking, well that was not true, well the bottom line here is if you want to have a fun vacation with friend's and you toys this is not the place, if you want a beach this is not the place, the chain that is hard to find, you have to wait till the water goes down even to find it, i did not use it, the current is very strong right there and will push into the dock behind it, and they did not return my deposit, but if you are looking for a place to go and do nothing than this place is for you, like i said it is a nice place,and i a don't drink so no one was drunk and making lots of noise, like i said we were hardly there and only used the place to sleep, before you rent look the place up on google maps, look at the satellite picture, i will gladly answer any questions that you have, thank's mike.

Owner's Response: The community is a family friendly atmosphere with many boat owners as guest and home owners. The property description clearly states accommodations for one, not two, boats and in ground anchors directly in front of the property with beach and water access. My recommendation to all VRBO guests is to thoroughly read the VRBO property description you are considering as they are written to give guests information on the property to assure a good time by all.

Beautiful & Relaxing Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from a river trip and this property was everything that we hoped for! It was exactly as the description stated and was well maintained and clean. Our 5 year old had a wonderful time and loved that we had beach access from the house. We were hoping for a relaxing vacation and that is exactly what we got. We have been coming to Needles for many years and we normally camp but wanted something a little simpler this trip. The house includes all of the amenities and we were able to relax and enjoy our time in paradise. The owner of the property was informative and gave us a lot of details about what the property included and how to access the keys. We had no problems with the property during our stay. I would highly recommend this property and can't wait to stay here again!

Location! Location! Location!

Spectacular view of the river, private beach, and steps from the pool/spa - perfect location for a waterski getaway! This home is well appointed, comfortable and very clean. And it was a pleasure dealing with Tonia.

I would definitely recommend this place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my extended family and the house was clean, large and on the water! The kitchen was perfect, the rooms were all comfortable and I loved that there was extra refrigerator in the laundry room. There was even water and Popsicles in it for is to enjoy. It was quiet (well maybe except for us) and it was so ridicously close to the Needles Marina where we launched from. Great location, easy to find and concerns at all. There is not a boat ramp, but buoys to tie your boat up to. We had to google how to do it, and itmeorkedmout just fine for us. What this means is you have to walk into the water to get to your boat. No big deal as the water was warm and refreshing. We loved sitting in the water on beach chairs having the kids play with us and behind us while mom and dad had beverages! We ate breakfast at the Needles golf course one morning and had great Bloody Mary's. I know we will call Tonia next year to rent her home again.
