Large spacious home with beautiful setting out back!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great place to stay with large spacious rooms. We liked the large master suite with guest rooms on the other side of the house. Created privacy.for the few days we had guests. The homeowner was very responsive and you could always reach him when needed if questions arose. The pool and hot tub were beautiful. Nothing was better than watching the sunset in the evenings. The location was perfect. We were never too far from anything but still felt like you were getting away from the hustle of the city and roadways. We would rent again.

Beautiful place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time spent at the Desert Retreat. The house was clean, big, perfect for our group. The pool and spa were very relaxing with an amazing view making it feel like as if we were at a resort. The owner was very accommodating with accommodating our requests for the heating of the pool and spa at specific times since it was rather cold when we visited. He was very quick to respond and helpful. We would book this house again.

The house was perfect for us, we were there for golf and had many golf courses within 45 minutes drive. Everything worked out fine, maybe the grill need to be cleand from the bottom. If we go back next year I will contact you and maybe we can make a deal.

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! We spent most of our time on the back patio and in the pool and hot tub. The backyard is a perfect setup to visit with family and friends, just hanging out and barbecuing, swimming and relaxing. It has everything you’ll need for cooking and it’s big enough that everyone has their own space. The master is huge and on the other side of the house from the other bedrooms, and it’s in a really quiet neighborhood. The owner is very responsive and accomodating. We hated to leave! Looking forward to coming back again. Thank you a lifetime memory.
