The best feature of the property is the mountain views and the beautiful pool and spa area. There was an amazing view from every window. Unfortunately the inside of the home fell short of our expectations.
This is a very tired rental property with a poor layout. It is not senior or small children friendly as there are many trip and fall hazards. In particular the stairs that lead to the lower level where all the bedrooms are located. They are covered with dated shag carpeting which were somewhat difficult to navigate. Pool lacks a hand rail for safely entering and exiting the pool and there are awkward cement steps that surround the outdoor space.
This was our fourth visit to the Cave Creek Area and the fourth home we have rented. All have been comparably priced. This was by far our least favorite. In addition to the issues mentioned above, the attention to details were also lacking. We had to purchase a BBQ brush to clean the grill before we could use it. Then back to purchase ice because the ice maker was not working. There is an expectation for the renters to strip the beds and start the laundry but there was not sufficient laundry soap available. Same goes with the dishwasher.
While the inside of this home did not wow us, it did meet our needs. We had a lovely relaxing vacation. The property is conveniently located to downtown, major roads and a short ride to hiking trails. We spent every morning and evening outdoors admiring the amazing views of the mountains. We did love the pool and nothing beats soaking in the hot tub under the star filled sky.
Overall this is a fair rental property.
Great location, great place to stay. The home has everything you could want for a desert getaway. Plenty of room, well maintained and lots of nice features. Decks/patios on both levels are fantastic places to catch views of desert wildlife in the mornings and same PLUS beautiful sunsets in the evenings. We really appreciated the saguaro blooms. There's a woodpecker who visits every morning - at about 5:30 unfortunately, and announces himself by pecking at the downspout and there is a lizard family who lives in the rocks just outside of the pool. Many, many quail, dove, and bunnies to watch. We even saw a javelina in the neighborhood during twilight.
Pool is nice and large and the infinity edge feature just adds to the already natural beauty. Fun to have a putting green and pool table, too. Kitchen is well stocked and the home layout allows for both family time together and quite time alone. Just two very minor "criticisms" are that it would be nice to be able to access the garage from inside of the home and the bottom level (and only way) door to access the pool area from the home itself is in a bedroom is a bit strange but no big deal.
The rental process could not have been easier. The Cave Creek area had everything we needed in therms of restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, and entertainment. We highly recommend this property and would stay they again ourselves.
If you are coming to Phoenix this is just outside the city but feels a million miles away. Great views of the mountains. Less than a mile from downtown Cave Creek which offers good options to eat and flavor of a more rustic side of Arizona. About a 20 minute drive to Scottsdale.
The home is an odd layout with all the bedrooms on the bottom floor. The pool is lovely but mainly has access from one of the bedrooms...otherwise you have to walk out the front door and around to the back of the house. Place was clean and good for a large group. Large living room with balcony to the outside. Great views from the balcony.
Neighborhood is nice. Good for a morning walk. Lots of wildlife ( hummingbirds, jack rabbits etc) will great you in the am. We had a woodpecker that woke us a bit too early.....but otherwise great place.
My husband and I live in a northern state and looked forward to enjoying the weather and events of AZ. It was awesome having our own pool and hot tub right next to the house. We were in it every day. Very unique pool with the infinity edge and great scenery to look at while swimming. The bed was very comfortable. Lots of bath and swimming towels provided. Handy to have a washer and dryer in the home. My husband loves to cook so we had most of our meals right at the house. He found the kitchen to be well stocked with the pots, pans, utensils and other items he needed. Knives were a bit dull. Used the grill on the deck many times. The little putting green in the backyard was fun to use...we had a few little "competitions". The putting green in the front yard could use some work. My husband enjoyed playing several games of pool. While we were there, the landscaping people came along with the exterminator and the pool guy so the property is well cared for. Overall, all went well and we enjoyed our 2 week vacation at this home.
Plenty of room for 4 golfers. Located on the west side of the mountain made for spectacular views...elevated views of the setting sun!!!
To watch the hot air balloons rise in the morning while having coffee on the deck was exhilarating.
Then to come home after golf to lounge by the pool and in the hot tub with beverages in full sun until it dipped down out of site was a perfect end to each day.
Pool, hot tub, patio and upper deck were ideal for enjoying the afternoon sun.
Location was ideal...close to restaurants, pubs, golf and shopping. Don't rule out the WagonWheel restaurant at bottom of road for breakfast...doesn't look like much from the outside but food was great!
Rented this property on the advise of agent and we were NOT disappointed...excellent call!
Minutes to downtown Cave Creek!
