Delightful and welcoming casita... a rare find
The guest house was exactly what we had hoped for ... a secluded location that gave us privacy but was not far away from shops and services; welcoming hosts who had thought of our every comfort and need; a well appointed, perfectly-sized house for a couple who wanted a cozy environment for a prolonged stay in December but was large enough to entertain family who lived in the area. The outdoor areas were a natural extension of the house, doubling the entertainment area and providing opportunities to enjoy meals with friends, a space to read or work, or have lively chats around the fire pit. We especially enjoyed the beauty of the desert garden - a delightful feature of the property.
The casita had all the amenities you would expect in a well looked after and cared for property designed for the owners' extended family and the owners are thoughtful in their provisions, warm and welcoming and very responsive. It was a great place to spend a holiday and the sense of feeling comfortably at home added immensely to our pleasure. Definitely a return visit.

My husband and I spent a couple of weeks at the casita for a fall getaway. The property is wonderful and Bill and Joann have gone above and beyond to ensure an extremely comfortable stay. The home had all the amenities that were needed for our stay, plus many extras. The location is perfect between North Scottsdale and Carefree/Cave Creek, so there are many options for dining, golf, shopping and hiking. The home itself feels private with multiple secluded outdoor areas to enjoy the beautiful Scottsdale weather. A big plus for us was that the casita was pet friendly so we were able to bring our dog for his first visit to the desert.
We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit.
Once again, the Walton's have enabled us with a wonderful experience. The casita remains an absolute delight, and the extra amenities (snacks, water and drinks in the fridge, etc) make it a very special place to rent. It is perfectly located to be quiet and secluded at night, but right in the heart of shopping, dining and golf. It is a perfect place, which we certainly intend to visit again and again.
This is our second time staying in this beautiful home and we'll definitely will be back. It's always a treat to open that refrigerator door and look at all the assorted beverages.
Bill and Joanne are wonderful hosts extremely helpful but not intrusive....
Thank you again,
Lloyd and Jan
It exceeded all expectations
Beautiful spot in the Sonoran desert
We can’t wait to return
A Secluded Oasis in the Sonoran Desert. A Comfortable Southwestern Style Casita.
A perfect location to enjoy the Sonoran Desert while being close to all the amenities of Scottsdale and the attractions of Cave Creek and Carefree. We were able to spend five wonderful weeks at this Casita with it's own secluded, fenced cactus garden (including a mature Saguaro) which we enjoyed from the covered, wrap-around patio. The fire pit was ideal for the cooler evenings and we saw spectacular sunsets from the observation deck and also watched the patrolling coyotes.
Our hosts, Bill and Joanne, gave us a warm welcome and ensured that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. They paid close attention to every detail and provided a wonderful selection of drinks, and wine, plus a large, loaded welcome basket. Lynn had to work while we were there and Bill helped set up the high speed internet, which was fast and reliable. The hosts lived next door which means that they are available if anything needs attention.
The accommodation was very comfortable and everything worked well. The place was spotless on our arrival. There were plentiful supplies of consumable items, towels, linen and bedding. The kitchen was well equipped and we did a lot of cooking, as well as enjoying the many local restaurants. We bought a slow cooker with us, but there was one there already!
We had Amber, our Golden Retriever, with us and she was welcomed and she loved the fenced garden as well as all the local walks in the neighbourhood and meeting the local horses and dogs. There are many good trails in the mountains just a short car ride away and we tried to take Amber on one every day.
There were a couple of well maintained bikes and I enjoyed riding up Pima Road to Carefree. There was a DVD player and we were able to see a number of classic movies from Bill's collection.
Overall it was a most enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Casita and we would stay there again if we can muster the spirit for the five day drive from Ottawa, Canada. Many thanks to Joanne and Bill.
