About Raymond Merriman

My fiance and I are writers, and with its stunning sunset views and secluded location, this house is a perfect setting for our writing retreats. At the same time, we are within 15 minutes of shopping venues for our personal and professional needs.

Raymond Merriman purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

I love this house, and purchased it because of its gorgeous sunset views (every dusk is an artisitic masterpiece of nature), high ceilings, quietness, and the beauty of the desert flora outside. Also, great pride was taken to decorate the inside with art deco and western flavored themes. The house has a wonderful combination of openness, light, and character. It is also well located. It is in a safe and gated community, but less than 15 minutes from Cave Creek, Carefree, and Scottsdale commercial areas. Within 5 miles are several horseback riding stables and trails, among the very best in Arizona! If you are looking for relaxation and inspiration with the option of being close to nature and the desert, in a stunning setting, this is a a great place to be!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

As a family we have rented in many areas from the Outer Banks to the California shores. The thing that was different about Ray's home and much appreciated was how the home was stocked, from toiletries, towels, spices and even a complementary bottle of wine! We arrived late on Tuesday evening and Doreen was there to welcome us, show us how everything worked and let us know to call her if we needed anything. There was also a welcome basket, very nice touch. The kitchen as the gathering place of a home today was wonderful and plenty of seating for all. Conveniently located to all area's of interest for us.

Thank you Ray for the use of your home!.

Dave and Colleen.

I have been renting from VRBO for many years

And when you think you couldn't find a better home to stay at from your last home, boy was I wrong. This home has everything one could ask for. All high end upgrades, 4 bedrooms that are spaced out for ultimate privacy, gated and secure community, with beautiful sunsets while swimming in the pool. The owner put effort into this home to assure his guests are well taken care of. Centrally located to Scottsdale Cave Creek Phoenix and a short 90 minute drive to Sedona. We were greeted at the home and felt very comfortable with the time it took to show us the home

For my pick of the year it would be this home. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from vacation at this beautiful home and cannot wait to return. The home was a wonderful place to vacation and entertain our friends. The outdoor patio with the pool & grill was magnificent. Everything you needed was there. Dealing with Ray, the owner, was a pleasure. He was always available to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend the house if you are looking for the perfect vacation in AZ. Beautiful sunsets while we sat outside by the pool and a beautiful kitchen. Thanks Ray!

Beautiful home in quiet neighborhood with west facing pool

  • 5 of 5

We just returned today from our stay at this property and it was a wonderful rental. The pool had sun all afternoon and we paid to have it heated and it was very comfortable in mid-February. Our kids swam every day and we sat by the fire pit every night. Spectacular views of sunset from kitchen and living room, as well as pool area. Very clean and updated with a beautiful kitchen and Wolf range. We had 7 people - our family of 5 plus my parents and there was more than enough room for all of us. Loved having the washer/dryer at the house and 3 full baths. My kids said the beds were more comfortable than their own and I have to agree - the master bed was very comfortable. Plenty of towels for 7 people showering every day. Twelve minutes from Desert Ridge Shopping plaza and many other attractions also close by. We had dinner guests two nights and had enough dishes to serve 11 people easily. Highly recommend this rental property!

We had a wonderful stay in this Cave Creek gated development. The 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home was perfect for our two families, & mother in law. It was clean and decorated nicely with a Southwestern feel.

The owners had a great welcome basket for us waiting & binder with all the important house info including WIFI and appliance instructions. Each couple had a comfortable and more than spacious bedroom, bathroom, with large walk in closets. We had an 18 month old who is still in a pack n play crib and we were able to use the master bedroom closet for her since we wanted her close to us. Our 3 and 5 year old shared the twin bedroom, but it looked as though the beds could have been connected into a double/queen to be used for another couple should you have wished. The office had a daybed with a pull out trundle so it could have slept two. There were plenty of extra linens and towels for everyone. The kitchen was fully stocked, we cooked breakfast every day and had 3 dinners at the house with no issues. They even had ample seasonings that we used for steaks that we grilled on the grill out back. We paid the extra fee to have the pool heated, the kids loved it! Unfortunately it did rain two days of our trip so we only used the fire pit once, but it was great to sit outback and soak in the relaxing evening atmosphere. It was a quiet neighborhood with no noise or issues. My husband did see a coyote when he was driving at night, and two wild boars were out early one morning. Fun to see, don't get close! The whole house was stocked with the comforts of home from the dishes to cleaners and laundry detergent. We went to a local Costco and afterwards realized we did not need any toilet paper; the house is now stocked for a while. :) Over all it was a lovely stay and we were very happy with everything. Our family said we would definitely rent this home again; we plan to come back in the next few years. THANK YOU!

... Read on if you would like more info about the area. This was our second time in this part of Arizona and there is something for everyone; our youngest family member is 18 months. We were 40 minutes from the Phoenix zoo which is a great & clean. 40 min to the Arizona Mills Mall where we took our kids to visit Sea Life on a rainy day; perfect for young kids & the mall was not bad. Downtown Scottsdale and Old Town were a little less than an hr. away w/ great shopping, restaurants, and golfing. Happy vacationing!! Thanks again for a great visit!!

Central location!

  • 5 of 5

We found this lovely home to have a great central location. Only 10-15 minutes from several golf courses, Barrett Jackson, Cave Creek and Carefree, Scottsdale and many great restaurants!

Very private and quiet, you can enjoy the sunsets in the evening in solitude. We really enjoyed the heated pool and would often swim at night while star gazing.

If you enjoy bird watching just fill the the feeders and they will come! We had Cardinals, Red finches, Woodpeckers and many others!
