Stairs lead down to the extra large fire pit.. This home has a sauna/steam room, knotty alder cabinets and doors, with rustic hardware throughout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paul, we had a great time at your house. It was beautiful, well kept, and had everything we could have wanted. We hiked Camelback, near the Snowshoe reservoir, and off roaded up towards Chinaman's hat. We also had a good pheasant hunting experience near Florence although I didn't realize it was that far a drive. I can't tell you how much everyone thought the house was perfect. The foosball table got plenty of exercise. We had a decent meal at Road Runners and a great breakfast in Cave Creek.

Amazing View and Home

  • 5 of 5

When we opened the front door we knew we had made the right decision ! The view, the pool, the awesome home was just perfect ! We stayed there with our grandchilren for a week and only left 3 or 4 times. One was for our granddaughters graduation. We just loved everything about the home. Everything was there except food and clothes. You don't need anything. The office was very nice, the roomy beautifully decorated home was so comfortable and cheery we didn't want to leave. If you need to sightsee or go shopping it is very convient to I-17 and shopping but very isolated for that get away feeling. We enjoyed a trail ride in nearby Cave Creek and some short shopping in Carefree. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing vacation in the dry climate of the desert.

Loved this Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Hacienda House backing to Tonto National Forest. The house was beautifully decorated and clean. The owners were friendly and helpful all week as we needed guidance about the pool or spa. The sauna and game room were great added bonuses! They left so many thoughtful items that you don't always get in a rental home like nice towels, spices, coffee, and starter supplies so we didn't need to do grocery the first day. Very helpful. Our two girls loved the supply of board games and puzzles. The beds were comfortable too. The Tonto National Forest is literally right out your back door and we hiked into the desert about 3 miles and saw some amazing native american petroglyphs. We will definitely be back!

Oh Wow - great view, great layout, gorgeously decorated

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you drive up this home is gorgeous! Nice long driveway, quiet area! When you open the front door you are met with full window and slider overlooking pool and Tonto National Forest. The house was very clean and well maintained - no issues at all.

We (two families, 4 teens + grandma, total of 8) had plenty of room. The photos do not do this place justice, it is much larger than photos depict. The master suite is so roomy. Also, it was well stocked - pans, small appliances, etc. Everything we needed was there. We walked out and hiked in the Tonto (entrance is 0.2 mile from front door) before breakfast. Watched the sunset with cocktails after long days in Sedona, Cave Creek, Superstition Mtns, Camelback, and the mall! Great home, Great location. Perfect for extended families... large communal rooms but private areas on either end of home. Much larger than expected.

Incredibly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Every year, for ten years, I take a girls trip to Phoenix or surrounding areas. This is the BEST property we've ever stayed at! The house was very clean and comfortable and had lots of room for us. We really liked that there were no stairs. The pool is fabulous and had a beautiful view. I can't think of anything that was not provided. We'll be back next year!!
