Great Week of Hiking!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Tarney's home for a week to go hiking in Carefree. We've actually been shopping for a home ourselves so we've been here four times in the last 90 days. It's an amazing area for recreation! This time we brought our neighbor and her teens (15 & 17) so we chose renting the home over a local resort. Great solution! The kids didn't have to share the pool and we didn't have to try and fight for large tables at dinner time!

The home is fairly new and is well cared for. The master suite is very large and offers plenty of drawer and closet space. Each of the smaller bedrooms is en suite so no one has to share bathrooms. The smaller bedrooms are small and the fourth has a pull out "couch bed" rather than a full-size bed. That said, my son chose it and said that it was very comfortable.

The kitchen is well equipped for most cooking. I am accustomed to a VERY large, well-appointed kitchen so consider that I am really spoiled. Although I rarely use a microwave, I especially liked warming function on this one! It made serving pancakes to a roomful easy! The office space was especially valuable as most of the adults had business calls to make at some point during the week and the pool fun made that difficult in the family room area.

The backyard is delightful. The pool is cool and inviting and the fire pit beckons after dark. We used the grill area once but should have used it more as we didn't have a grill option inside. The other nice feature is that the area nearest the house is shaded with fans so it never really gets hot. You can sit out midday and enjoy all that AZ has to offer.

Our stay wasn't without its challenges. On our third night, at 3AM the alarms started going off! And, as oddly as it came on, it turned off! Then, some minutes later as we returned to bed, it went on again! And, within minutes, it was off. You can imagine that this second event gave us a huge concern about the rest of the night (sleeping with one eye open assuming it was going to happen again) but it never happened after that. As well, there were some issues with the hot tub. For resolution, we stayed in constant contact with Denise and she worked to get resolution for each.

One final comment: This home is just off E. Westland Rd. meaning that there is a fair amount of noise in the living areas. Depends on what you're used to and what you're looking for but important to note.

I highly recommend this rental home! We enjoyed it as well as the area!

Amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, well maintained and exceptionally clean. It went above and beyond our expectations! Paul and Denise were very helpful, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns.We enjoyed awesome mountain views, evenings around the fire pit , outdoor cooking, a pool and hot tub. We loved every minute, plus the location was conducive to trips, such as Sedona and The Grand Canyon. This is the first time my husband and I rented a home (we are in our 60s!) and we were pleasantly surprised. Our family visited for a few days, and the four bedrooms & bathrooms made their stay so comfortable. The little ones loved the pool! We highly recommend this property and can't wait to return!

Amazing stay in a five star beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this home for 11 nights. This home is beautiful and very up to date with amenities and decor. The kitchen is amazing and has everything and more you will need for an incredible vacation. The microwave was over the top. The bedrooms are very large. The master bed is very comfortable, just like at home. Even the blankets are soft and plush. The master bathroom shower was massive and one of my personal favourites. The jacuzzi tub in the same bathroom is very relaxing. Our older kids loved their bedrooms with their own tvs and bathrooms. There is even a den with a desk and printer. Wow. The entertainment room is also incredible with a massive television and we played some board games like taboo in here. The great room (main family area) has a huge tv as well and an amazing sound system and remote control. Outside there is a huge firepit (another one of my personal favourites) and an incredible pool, hot tub, bbq and bar area (we never used the bbq or bar area). The views are stunning. The owners Paul and Denise are great. Always just an email or phone call away. Thank you Paul and Denise for everything.
