Exclusive Living on the 13th Hole!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a delightful month in this property this past November. Even with arriving in the dark we followed the prescibed instructions to the home with ease. It is beautifully decorated, spacious, clean, and excellently maintained. The kitchen was well equipped. I even hosted a sixteen people Thanksgiving dinner without having to go buy extra pots and pans etc. The back patio offered a view onto the greens that was so lovely. And beyond was not hindered by homes but the Arizona desert landscape. This offered many delightful views of lovely sunsets. The owner was so helpful in all ways with our questions and also had a binder filled with places to see, or where the good eateries were. We have raved about our stay to our friends and family and how wonderful the owners and neighbors were; making us feel so welcome.It was an excellent experience and not once was there anything to complain about.

Great Home With Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

Great home 2300 sqft of luxury on the Poston Butte Golf Course with beautiful sunsets. Don & Jen have done great job decorating the home it's very comfortable and has a well stocked kitchen. Jen has given the home a warm feeling with her artistic touch.

Dutch & Karle next door are the best people you'll ever meet. They'll give you ideas on great reataurants and places to see during your stay. After you meet these two you'll have two more life long friends.

This home is in a very active community with everything one needs to stay as busy as you like. Golf, sewing club, cooking club, pottery, poker night, movie night, ice cream socials, tennis, state of the art excerise room, indoor and outdoor pools and many more activties.

This is our second year here and we love it. One thing we enjoy are the people of the community. Everyone is freindly and has a great time here.

This was the first time renting a house rather than staying at a hotel. The experience will make it difficult to go to a hotel in the future. Our hosts were extremely good to us and made our stay a trip to remember. This beautiful house lacked nothing and the community made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. We enjoyed it so much, we bought a house there ourselves.
