Wonderful experience in a welcoming atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

The owners, who live nearby, were so warm and friendly, welcoming us to this beautiful Shangri-La. The description was perfect, the house well appointed, the night sky glorious. Accommodations were as described, no surprises. After a long day at the National Pickleball Tournament the Sauna was awesome! Rita and Jim could not have been more gracious hosts offering information and help when needed.

You can't go wrong on this one........and I've rented quite often. If you are looking for a place to rest your tired body after a day of adventure, touring, shopping, gambling!, or Pickleball this is the place. Enjoy!

Cool in the Desert

My husband and I were looking for the desert experience and found it at this beautiful house. It was spacious, comfortable and relaxing. Rita and Jim were the perfect hosts. Everything we needed was there. We truly enjoyed our stay.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The property is so peaceful and private. Close enough to town that it isn't a pain to drive for groceries and gas, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle.The bed was comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, including 2 gallons of drinking water and a bag of ice! Jim and Rita went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was perfect. Thank you!!

As Represented

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with friends and our two dogs at this property for two weeks in March.

Rita and Jim are awesome people and live next door. The house is large and open.

You do need to bring your own drinking water and all of your own groceries.

Maricopa is a fair drive to get supplies if you are not prepared. This property is very

rural so consider your length of drive and drive time if you are wanting to sight see or

go into Phoenix for anything. Would have liked to have had more shade on the patio.

(eg. table umbrella).

Thanks Rita and Jim for sending us off with the rare cactus bloom!

Very Relaxing and Close enough to Phoenix to enjoy any of the sites or ballgames.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an affordable get away for our family driving distance from Las Vegas. This was above and beyond safe, pleasant, and relaxing. We went to the Butterfly Wonderland fully worth the time if you have elementary age children. We also enjoyed the option of cooking on sight, the kitchen is well set up to prepare meals on site.

Notes:
We do not have a microwave for a reason...they are extremely toxic to the body and we do not want that energy in our home. We also do not have a dish washer. We recommend that you bring your own drinking water. Ours is safe to drink, but is very hard well water. Ok to drink on a short term basis. We are finicky about ANY tap water, so that is why we recommend bringing your own. Please bring your own shampoo, conditioner & other toiletries.
