Outstanding property and exceptional Owner

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this property this year because it is by far one of the best VRBO experiences we have ever had. The owner is like no other. She is extremely warm and inviting. Easy to work with through the booking process and responsive to all requests. Her home is amazing... very clean and well stocked. She has thought of everything! Forgot your toothbrush? She has you covered! We already booked our stay for next year. Highly recommend this property!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all of the amenities you could ever need! The owner met us with warm appetizers, chilled wine and such a wonderful personality we all wanted her to stay with us!! Anything we needed she was quick to respond to! Everything in this home was top notch-from the beds/bedding to the smallest thing like the body wash that was conveniently waiting in the showers! Nothing was overlooked!

More than we could have hoped or expected

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent upscale homes all over the world. We love traveling this way and will never stay in a hotel again, unless we have to. With all that travel, it is easy to say that we loved Treva's home the best.

Treva has spoiled us and our expectations of properties going forward will be high!

What is the best about this property? Is it the warmth and comfort of her home? Making you feel like you're staying with family? Every comfort you can think of? A fully stocked kitchen with top notch appliances, pots/pans and a spice drawer that is alphabetically arranged (I came home and immediately did this to mine)?

Yes, all of these things - but the best was Treva. She was very helpful and kind. You feel like you've known her all of your life. She was so gracious and genuinely concerned that everything was perfect. Nothing was too much.

We loved the privacy, the elegant yet cozy furnishing, the lovely grounds - everything.

We love hiking and mountain biking at McDowell - this was the perfect spot between "civilization" and this great park.

I cannot recommend Treva and her lovely home more highly - you will not be disappointed.

We not only had a lovely stay, but I have made a friend for life.

10 Stars!! ⭐️ And then some more!!

  • 5 of 5

We (a well travelled family of 4 from the U.K.) rented Treva's beautiful home for 2 weeks before Christmas this year.

I honestly don't know where to start - to tell you about this superb and gorgeous home or to tell you about its amazing owner Treva? Both are awesome, providing everything you need, then a bit more, oh and wait' then some more on top of that.

So let me start with Treva......quite the most thoughtful owner you could be lucky enough to meet. We arrived after a very long journey from a cold and wintry England, to wine, home made canapés and a personal familiarisation tour of the villa. Treva had provided gorgeous Christmas decorations, treats and touches all over the house and a stunning Christmas tree that I wanted to pack and bring home with me (i didn't!) . Kindness, thoughtfulness and personal touches were there in abundance during our entire stay and yet Treva also somehow ensured our total privacy the whole time we stayed.

And as for the house and casita and grounds - well it is just wow all the way. It's true that the pictures don't do this home justice! The all round views are stunning and far reaching. There's an incredible feeling of space and luxurious comfort inside and out. And in terms of equipment, this lovey house has absolutely everything ! As a keen cook, there was nothing I was short of in the kitchen - equipment and provisions - oh how this made a great holiday experience even better.

The only problem you may have with this lovely home is ever having a vacation somewhere else that's even close!!!

Thank you so much Treva. You asked if there was anything I could suggest that would improve our experience but I just can't think of a single thing! We all hope that you and your wonderful home feature actively in our lives now forever - not just in memories! We'll be back!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Treva's wonderful house. Everything about the place is outstanding - including the pool and hot tub, outside areas, huge kitchen, great room, study, master suite, and bedrooms. Our stay was over Christmas and the house was fully decorated for the occasion, including a big beautiful Christmas tree. Treva is a very gracious host who is 100% focused on the comfort and satisfaction of her guests. We will definitely return again, and we can recommend the property very strongly. Thanks for everything Treva!!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful house. We have stayed at many VRBOs and this is one of the BEST! The pictures did not do this home justice, so much better than we expected! We can not put into words how kind and warm Treva was. She met us for a late check in at the house with snacks and breakfast food for the next morning. The outdoor area is your own private resort with oversized soft beach towels! Each bedroom had cozy bath robes! The kitchen and master suite are second to none, this house has it all! We look forward to returning soon!
