We are equine enthusiasts and our home reflects our love of horses.

The master features a King bed and private patio, bdrm 2 has been remodeled to create a second master with direct access to hall bath and a quiet, private patio overlooking the back yard and fire pit area. It features a Queen bed and full size sofa/sleeper . Bedroom 3 features two memory foam twin beds. There is a queen sofa/sleeper in the 4th bdrm/den with private 3rd full bath and its own patio overlooking the pool. It's great for a kids play area as well with its own TV and access to back yard. This multipurpose room can be closed off from the rest of the house with massive custom barn doors creating sound barrier and complete privacy.

Lots of outdoor enjoyment spaces with small private splash pool (sorry it isn't heated), a new (Sept 2015) six person spa, faux grassy play area, built-in propane Bar B-Que, hot plate burners and prep area, meditation fish pond with waterfall and propane fire pit with semi circular seating for evening enjoyment and marshmellow roasts. The acre plus lot affords residents optimal privacy and plenty of parking without the seclusion of out of town suburban properties and dusty dirt roads. Groceries, restaurants, entertainment and shopping all in close proximity (5-20 minutes) with outdoor recreation opportunities all around in desert and mountain hiking, horseback riding facilities, lakes and rivers, several outstanding golfing opportunities, equestrian event center at Westworld, zoos, aquariums, butterfly pavilion, several casinos and so much more.

About Vicki

The Dobbs Family is the owner of this lovely rustic ranch home in the Desert Foothills North development in Cave Creek. Purchased for our family to enjoy when attending horseshows nearby, just getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life in CA and for our combined family get togethers. We hope you will enjoy our home when we are away.

Vicki purchased this house in 2014

Why Vicki chose Cave Creek

Whether its a Pro Golf tournament, baseball spring training or your favorite team is playing the AZ Cardinals or the Diamondbacks, hiking, motorcycle mania or even a big event at Westworld, this home is centrally located for convenient outings to them all. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, there are lakes and rivers nearby and lots of desert and mountain hiking opportunities. Horseback riding is also available in the Cave Creek area. For the kids, we are within a30-45 minute drive of Phoenix Zoo, three aquariums, the butterfly pavilion, wildlife safari world and Legoland. For small gatherings/events (like a writers retreat or painting weekend) or just to hang out with a few friends, relax and enjoy the inviting desert communities of Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale, this home is waiting and provides a private, quiet sanctuary for your time away from your own homes. It is not a good place for weddings or larger parties, we are located in a quiet family friendly neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Fully fenced (block) yard area for private entertainment and relaxation, this home is located on over an acre of beautifully maintained desert land with natural open spaces between the homes where wildlife abounds. Watch the quail run along the fence tops, catch the bunnies early morning frolics, the butterflies and hummingbirds. Cactus wrens and woodpeckers add to the desert chorus. Listen to the coyotes sing you to sleep and watch out for the occasional javalina or bobcat that may be passing by. We are country quiet and city close.

Beautiful Cave Creek home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Vicki's Cave Creek home. It was very spacious, beautifully landscaped, and very well appointed. Vicki was really helpful as well. The home is in a quiet and safe neighborhood with grocery, restaurant and activities nearby. If by chance you are in town for soccer (at Reach 11) don't pass this one up! Highly recommend Vicki and her home!

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location. Close to everything we like to do in Arizona. Golf, biking, hiking, markets, shopping are all very convenient. Home is located in an upscale neighborhood and beautifully maintained. The owner is very particular (good) and relatively new to renting her property. This led to some misunderstandings on what our responsibilities were and those of housekeeping. Nevertheless, everything was resolved amicably, and we would highly recommend this property.

Just as the photos portrayed

  • 4 of 5

The home was just as we expected and hoped. It was very clean and organized. The layout was perfect for our large group with space to spare. The home was equipped with everything we needed. I did not have any issues during the stay, but any communications that I had with the owner leading up to the stay were answered in a very prompt and professional manner. We would definitely stay in this home again in the future!

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with every amenity you could desire! Owners were speedy with communication. Comfortable beds and well laid out floor plan. The safety fence by the pool was helpful with kids too. Great choice!!

Had wonderfull stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several times in the this area north of Scottsdale. Carefree and Cave Creek are wonderful towns and less "busy" than Scottsdale. The home is as advertised. We have equestrians in the family and the decor has a big hit. Very good riding in the area as well. We will be back.

Gorgeous and private getaway

  • 5 of 5

A couple friends and I stayed for 7 days at Vicki's lovely home early November. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the pictures, if anything, weren't even quite as nice as the house's actual appearance. The front yard is gorgeous and impeccably landscaped. The back yard is HUGE and also very beautiful including a nice little fish pond. Three of the bedrooms have doors that go out directly to the backyard which was a big plus for us as a couple of us had our dog along for the trip. One bedroom has a king bed with a nice sized closet and attached bathroom (including a tv). The other master has a bathroom accessible from the bedroom or hall with a queen bed (no tv). The third bedroom we used as a master was technically the den (with the pull out couch used as a bed) with an attached bathroom. This room also has a laundry room next to it. The den also has a beautiful barn door that can be used to give privacy to the occupant as that room is right off the kitchen (other bedrooms are down hall). As the weather was perfect, we used the hot tub frequently in the evenings and even enjoyed the pool a bit on one of the warmer days as it is unheated but quite comfortable if warm enough outside (pool is larger than we expected). The fire ring looked like a great place to gather in the evening but we sadly didn't get an opportunity to use it. They have a nice central spot for outdoor grilling right outside the door to the kitchen. The yard also has plenty of hummingbirds that visit as well as a lemon tree and grapefruit tree. Inside the home it is a very open floorplan which makes it great for big gatherings. The dining room table seats many and there is an island in the kitchen with a stove in it. There are comfy chairs also positioned near the kitchen. In the living room there is one large couch, one regular sized couch and a large tv. During our stay we had a couple questions and we received communication back in a timely manner. The kitchen had just about most of the staples you may need for cooking.

Another thing we liked was that the front door has a keypad which made it more convenient than having to keep track of and share a key between three people.

If there is anything I could even remotely critique, I'd say some of the patio furniture wasn't super duper comfortable but that is a matter of taste and there were plenty of chairs to choose from.

I can't wait to come back!
