A week in the sun

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here and had a great time. It was a nice break from winter in Minnesota. We did arrive at night and the house was a little difficult to find due to lack of lighting, but we got there. The house was clean and had all of the amenities listed. It was nice to have the washer and dryer so we could pack less. The bathtub handle for turning on the water is a little touchy.

Wish the pool had been warm enough to swim in, but due to the time of year it wasn't...even though we attempted! We only got in up to our knees before needing to bail!

We drove to Sedona a couple of days to go to Bell and Cathedral Rock. Highly recommended!! The scenery is gorgeous.

Owner's Response: Hi Tessa and Phil, So glad to hear you had a great time in Phoenix. Being at the end of a quite back road in a rural small town, right next to the desert does come with lighting challenges at night. We will definitely get some new lighting for the front of the property in the hopes to help. Delighted you did find us! We just installed a tank less hot water heater so perhaps that had something to do with the touchiness as we’ve never had a problem before. We will have the plumber look at it, thank you for pointing that out. Sedona is truly breathtaking and we are thrilled you were able to experience that. Hopefully you can come back in the spring when it warms up enough to use the beautiful salt water pool. Kudos to you guys for getting that far in! Cheers

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many rentals over the years, but the Black Canyon Retreat was the best I've ever stayed at. I hesitate to leave a review as I'd like to keep this place as my little secret hideaway. Its located off the beaten path, was very private and a perfect retreat to get away from it all. I stayed for 1 month and wish I could have stayed forever. Mike and Dorothy went out of their way to insure I was comfortable and all my needs were met. A neighbor next door looks after the property and he was always available for questions, and any problems that might occur. The home was nicely furnished and the kitchen had been beautifull remodeled complete with granite counters The beds were very comfortable. I spent my mornings on the front porch watching the birds feasting on the seed pods of cactus flowers,, watching rabbits and families of quail. The backyard area was fenced for total privacy and I felt comfortable skinny dipping in the amazing pool. I simply have nothing negative to say and can't wait to go back.

The Perfect Arizona Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

This has been the perfect Arizona get-a-way for me and my husband, centrally located to many fantastic places to visit. We took a day trip to visit the Grand Canyon and Sedona which was beautiful, visited lake Pleasant about 30 min drive from here, Best shopping experience at Anthems Outlet Mall about 20 mins away, Hiking trails right off the property or the High Desert Trail 5 mins away. 2 mins down the street is the famous Chilleens on 17 BBQ Grill & Saloon featured on reality TV show "Bar Rescue", a very cool place with great service!

Its our last full day here at the Black Canyon Retreat, We're going to miss this beautiful place.

This house is very clean and equipped with all the amenities you would need, it even has an outdoor Bluetooth stereo. Nicely updated kitchen and spacious living areas. We did most of our living in the very private outside space relaxing by the pool, cooking and eating in the spacious out door BBQ/bar area. There are many spots to lay in the sun and relax and If you need a break from the sun their are many shaded spots too. Dorothy and Mike did a great job accommodating us and responding to any questions we had.

We will most defiantly come again, next time with the Kids so we can all experience this and more!!!

Great centrally located retreat. We would come again.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Mike and Dorothy - for having the vision to have a restful, lowkey - yet fully equipped place to rent for a reasonable price. We loved sitting on the front porch each morning watching and listening to the many varieties of birds - not crowded out by other vacationers - like being at home but in a great scenic location. Beds were comfortable and the pool was awesome - love the privacy. We wanted for nothing and when we did have a couple of questions or needs you attended to us immediately. Great service. We will definitely be coming back.

Thanks again, the DeSimone's - Bellevue Washington.

This was our first time in Arizona. Centrally located from all the AZ wonders. This place was immaculate and very charming! Secluded with a pool and backs up to thousands of acres of hiking and peace of mind. Mike and Dorothy are awesome people! Very personable! Would absolutely rent from them again!
