About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The location is a perfect place to sample the easy southwestern life in the double gated community of Desert Mountain. The location is at the north end of the greater Phoenix area in north Scottsdale at 3000 ft with dramatic city light views of the valley. Just down the road is the artsy town of Carefree and the cowboy town of Cave Creek. Nearby are a tremendous array of wonderful golf courses, hiking trails, biking, great restaurants, galleries, and art shows. All this in a wonderful setting of mountains with a dazzling display of desert plants and animals in the Sonoran Desert. Bartlett Lake Reservoir is less than a half hour drive.

Great Snowbird Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been doing vrbo rentals for over 10 years and this is one of our top properties! Everything one could want in a awesome setting gated community with 24/7 security personnel that patrol frequently. All amenities as advertised and the owners, Kent and Julie along with their property manager were very responsive to our requests.

The month went by way too fast and we would have loved to have stay longer. Made frequent use of the extensive paved sidewalks for walking our dog. My husband who uses a walker found them so easy to navigate!

The home had everything we needed and provided plenty of staples such as paper towels, toilet tissue, shampoo, and bath/laundry soap that we never ran out during our one month stay. A plus not seen in many properties!

Has the best checkout policy we have ever experienced since ALL cleaning is provided. Felt like we were checking out of a hotel!

The property is very private and the large patio with fireplace, heat lamp, and spa made the chilly January evenings a delight to use. The spa was very clean and maintained weekly during our stay. Our dog could use the patio too without leashing since it has a complete adobe wall to keep her from roaming off site.

We saw a family of five deer at dusk in our front yard which was so amazing and the birds, especially the hummingbirds, were a treat to observe.

Overall, a real gem in the upscale Desert Mountain community that we would highly recommend! You won't be disappointed!

Very nice 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home in Desert Mountain. Great patio and hot tub, comfortable furnishings, fully equipped kitchen. We stayed there for the great road cycling and hikes on the DM trail system. Community tennis and lap pools were good but the clubhouse remains under construction. Overall a great place to call home for a month and recharge the batteries.

  • 5 of 5

Kent and Julie, we loved the house and our stay was wonderful. We were there for our son's wedding and it made things less hectic being so close to the clubhouse. My parents also loved their stay. My mother just had knee surgery six weeks ago and the furniture there was very comfortable for her. We would definitely stay again! Thank you so much!!

Family get - together

  • 5 of 5

Kent,

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your Desert Mountain home.

We had a great time and your home was perfect for our family get-together over the holidays.

There was plenty of space for all of us and we really enjoyed the fireplaces, as the weather was a little cool over the New Year!

We would definitely love to stay here again!!

Thanks again,

Rob Nustad

Vally Lights and Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

This was the second stay for our family in this wonderful home. For those who wish to take advantage of the amenities which Desert Mountain offers, this is a centrally located unit to all of the golf courses, restaurants and hiking trails. The Sonoran Fitness and Tennis Centre is just a quick five minute walk. Kent and Julie's home offers everything one needs for a relaxing desert vacation with family and friends. You won't be disappointed with this well maintained and well equipped property.
