About Jeff Riggins

My wife Debby and I have been married since 1998 and have 3 daughters. I grew up in a small town in Southeast Missouri, Cape Girardeau. My wife is a Dallas native and we now live in a suburb of Dallas, Frisco, TX.

Jeff Riggins purchased this house in 2014

Why Jeff Riggins chose Arizona

My wife Debby and I lived in Phoenix for 5 years and fell in love with the desert and all it's beauty. We were lucky enough to be able to purchase our dream home in December 2014 on Black Mountain. Our family frequents the valley as much as possible. Our 3 daughters love the warm dry desert air and the views from atop Black Mountain. We hope you will love them as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

This home is very custom and very unique. The home was build in 1999, but and was always cared for and kept in great shape. We did a few renovations at the end of 2014 including new paint, furnishings throughout the house along with new railings on the patio. There just aren't many homes in Phoenix that you can rent that offer the elevation and the amazing views. The sunsets views can been seen throughout most of the house and they just can't be described. In a word, the sunsets are amazing. We enjoy them often from the relaxing heated pool and spa or while enjoying a meal or glass of wine on the patio deck. The elevator is especially nice for anyone that struggles with stairs and has easy access from the garage. I like to use it when we make a run to the grocery store or to Costco and I don't have to carry anything up the stairs. Our home is a part of our family. We love spending time relaxing in the warm dry Arizona climate. Our favorite things include watching the sunsets from our pool or deck and seeing the valley illuminate at night. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Great Property, Great View, Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We only spent three days with our family but wished we had stayed a week. The property was well maintained and had plenty of room for our family of 10 (4 separate couples). It was a little cool outside but we loved the outside patio and there were several patio heaters for those with a chill. The pool and hot tub worked great and the view was incredible. We were looking for a place with a some space and privacy and this was definitely it. But maybe the best part of our experience is the great communication and attention from the owner, Jeff. He was easy to reach, helpful with questions and attentive to any minor concerns we might have had. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to be back in the future.

Living in a Desert Postcard

  • 4 of 5

The views are beautiful . . . In the morning the soaring birds (Eagles?) and hot air balloons create a perfect setting which you can view from many scenic lookout spots . . . In the evening, the sunset has all the vivid colour you would expect against the various ranges of hills in extending to the horizon. Cameras cannot really capture all the nuances of colour and shade that vibrate through the landscape.

The house is beautiful and glamorous although there are some little signs of age or neglect. The elevator from the garage level is nice if you are hauling a lot of luggage in from the ground level.

It was our first VRBO rental and we were not sure what to expect. In general, it was a wonderful experience.

For planning purposes, you need to understand that it is quite a drive to almost everything, but that is the attraction of this dessert escape.

Beautiful property with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff's house in Cave Creek was perfect for our family reunion. Huge, well stocked kitchen for preparing meals; lots of space indoors and out for relaxing, talking, and games. The grocery store is only about 2 miles away and the town of Cave Creek has lots of cute coffee shops, diners, and shops. We would love to come back again!

Bright, comfortable, house with outstanding outdoor living area

  • 5 of 5

This house is situated high on Black Mountain with spectacular views of valley and distant mountains. As others have mentioned, the outdoor living area is outstanding and the sunsets live up to the loft reviews others have posted. Lots of sitting options and the pool is wonderful. The house was well laid out and there was plenty of room for all 8 of us. The kitchen is well stocked and there is a very nice big screen TV off the kitchen area where we rooted on our favorite sports teams while taking in the great views of the area.

As impressed as we were with the house, we were even more impressed by the owner of the house (Jeff). He made sure everything at the house was perfect for our visit. Well done!

Wonderful girl's weekend in Cave Creek!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for an annual girl's weekend, 7 girls in total. It was perfect for our large group. It felt very spacious, was extremely clean, and definitely the best stocked house we have ever rented (after 10 years)! The negative edge pool, spacious patios, and amazing views were definitely the highlights.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Having been to the Phoenix Area several times, I was looking for something that was a little quieter. I saw this listing in Cave Creek (never heard of it), and decided to give it a try.

There isn't anything I can say about the house that hasn't already been said. It is really a great place. Enough room for all. Yes, it really has an elevator. Before going, I was thinking... What would a two level house need an elevator for? It really came in handy to move the luggage and food to the upper level. Worth every penny! Watching the hot air balloons in the early morning hours was great.

Being from a metropolitan city, we saw wild life that we have never seen.... Eagle, quail, javelina, and I believe we even saw a family of road runners. Was hoping to see a rattlesnake, but that didn't happen. I guess we were lucky in that respect. We encountered a scorpion. It was way faster than I expected. We were told that there were bobcats on the mountain, but we never saw them.

That being said, as nice as all that was, the experience of meeting Jeff (the owner), made the trip that much more enjoyable. What a great person. He called to make sure we settled in ok. He was always available via phone, text, and email (I dont think he ever sleeps). He knew it was overly hot and asked if he could bring us water or anything else we might need. I can not say enough about him. I wish all the home owners on HomeAway would take a page out of his playbook.

Jeff... Thank you for everything. You really do have a beautiful, quiet, and relaxing place in Cave Creek, Arizona.
