Beautiful home in a perfect location.

  • 5 out of 5
I spent last Christmas at Mari's lovely "Desert Moon." I found the location perfect for my favorite activities. Hiking trails are only minutes away...the Cloudview trailhead into the Superstition Wilderness is an easy bicycle ride. Here you can take an easy hike to see the petroglyphs, or make the more difficult climb to the Superstition Ridgeline trail, either hike rewarding you with gorgeous views. And the Peralta trailhead, with it's many spectacular trails is just a short drive. Whether you are seeking family hiking or wilderness trekking, the Superstitions have it all. Great golf courses are everywhere, and shopping is also close by. The town home itself is beautifully furnished with gorgeous views of the mountains and surrounding desert. The beautiful patio areas are the perfect spot for enjoying breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening looking over the lights of the valley. Mari was great to work with and attentive to our needs, wanting us to have the best experience possible. I highly recommend this beautiful property...I will definitely be going back.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived, we realized our expectations were exceeded by this absolutely beautiful well appointed and maintained home. From the wonderful decor and art work chosen by Mari, to the well stocked dishware and large screen TV and bedroom TV’s....not to mention the lounge deck chairs and umbrella and table chairs available outside. We were visited by Roadrunners, rabbits and quail and doves. Breathtaking views unfolded from the sunrise and sunsets from the decks overlooking the Gold Canyon area. Mari was a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to any questions we had. We met a wonderful lady who blessed us with a homemade Apple pie and you will meet Don, who will greet you and make you feel at home. This home comfortably accommodated two couples with ample space for each couple. Location, location, location.....it was easy to walk to hiking trails, shopping, restaurants, and two pubs and the Golf course. The neighbours were very friendly and offered any assistance if required. I would strongly recommend this property to friends and neighbours and Cynthia and I and our good friends can hardly wait to return.

Desert Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
Desert Moon is a delight both inside and out. The owner, Mari's welcome email was comprehensive and directions were easy to follow. The Casa itself is on a hilltop rise with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside including the Gold Canyon Golf Course seen from the top of the northern of the house's two patios. The grounds are private and the bird feeders attract finches, Gambel's quails, mourning doves, cactus wrens and much to our delight a roadrunner. One evening a lonely coyote was seen at the property's edge. Inside the house, Mari has collected and displayed some wonderful southwest art and artifacts. The kitchen is modern and the living room is comfortable and well appointed, lovely bedrooms with Spanish Colonial furniture complete the southwest ambiance.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeff, it was a true pleasure to have the two of you as "guests' to Desert Moon". I appreciated your many compliments and enjoyed our communications!
I will post your suggestion for Fly Fishing with Cinda Howard at "Fly Fish Arizona" (480-217-5089) and look forward to doing this myself! I hope you both will consider a return visit in the future to our area and to "Desert Moon"
Kind regards,
Mari

A Haven in the Southwest

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures of Desert Moon do not do it justice. Mari's home is welcoming, well equipped for a short or long term stay, comfortable, and impeccably decorated to give you a true Southwest experience. Their is pride in this place. Every morning I walked into the living/dining room kitchen area to see awesome views of the Superstition mountains, blue skies and the city off in the distance. My favorite place was on the patio each morning having my first cup of coffee; and at night star gazing with a glass of wine in hand. We will definitely come back again.

LA CREME DE LA CREME - A REAL HOME-AWAY-FROM-HOME

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived we felt at home: wonderful appointments, great artwork and furniture, comfortable beds and views to die for. Add to those not insignificant considerations, the amazing sunsets over the valley, the light on the mountain at the end of the day, and the 'being away from it all' feeling the place engenders, and you have some idea of what a heavenly place this is. Will be recommending 'our' place in the sun to all of our friends. Don't miss out on the CAFE around the corner from the BASHA's grocery store. Nothing fancy but great breakfasts and lunches from a genuine mom and pop operation. At the same time, Arcadia Farms Café in Scottsdale is more than worth the trip - a fabulous place where you must sample the white Sangria . . . A week to remember, Mari, Thank you so much for the opportunity and the special care an attention we received. Mac and Barb McDonald

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful month at Mari's Desert Moon. We had relatives in the area and a sister who visited and they were all in awe of the wonderful views ranging from city lights at night to beautiful sunsets and the beauty of the Superstition Mountains. We enjoyed the hiking trails, golf and the variety of restaurants. Mari's home is beautiful, comfortable and very private, a true vacation destination.

Car: recommended

Gold Canyon is located within 22.3 square miles of the Sonoran Desert and was inhabited by the Hohokam and Salado Indians. It is the heart of the story of the 'Lost Dutchman Mine', and is only a short drive from breathtaking Canyon Lake (boat rentals available). Excellent golf can be found at the Gold Canyon Resort, a public course, as well as the Mountain Brook Golf Club. Some of the best area hiking can be found on the Peralta Trail (hike to the petroglyphs) or in the Tonto National Forest (see the Cliff Dwellings from the 13-15th centuries). Easy highway access to downtown Phoenix/Sky Harbor Airport (40 minutes), or to Scottsdale (30 minutes). Truly an oasis in the desert!
