Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Desert View - Rancho Tierra

4 bdrms (incl 2 masters,), 3 ba, pool, spa, fire pit & BBQ

Welcome to our modern, updated ranch style home centrally located to Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale. Our little estate sits privately on over an acre in a quiet paved neighborhood near the corner of Lone Mountain and Cave Creek Rds.

You can take a tour at http://www.ranchotierraaz.com

We are equine enthusiasts and our home reflects our love of horses. This spacious open floor plan has been comfortably furnished (everything in the house new in Jan-Feb 2015) for family enjoyment or small group gatherings. Please, this is not a party house. 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.. This multipurpose room can be closed off from the rest of the house with massive custom barn doors creating sound barrier and 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 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. Groceries, restaurants, entertainment and shopping all in close proximity (5-10 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 and so much more.

We would be honored to share our home with you and enhance your vacation experience or mini resident workshop, retreat or gathering of friends and family. There are two twin and one full air beds available for glamping indoors with your groups. Email us if you have any questions.

About Vicki

The Dobbs Family Trust 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 at horseshows near by and for our combined family get togethers we hope you will enjoy this home when we are away.

Vicki purchased this house in 2014

Why Vicki chose Phoenix

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. So for a small gatherings/events (like a writers retreat or painting weekend) or just to hang out, relax and enjoy the inviting desert communities of Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale, this home is waiting for you and your family or friends.

What makes this house unique

Fully fenced 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. Listen to the coyotes sing you to sleep and watch out for the occasional javalina that may be passing by. We are country quiet and city close.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Vicki and Dannys home for 26 days; it was an absolute fantastic place. Very nice quiet neighborhood, and close to everything. We went shopping, golfing, dining and hiking and the longest drive we ever had was 30 min. Grocery store, gas within 10 min.

The home: clean, very functional, we travelled with our children and with the kitchen, family room and dining part combined in one area we were able to be together but still do our own thing, plus with the 4 different bedrooms (den) when needed you could get some quiet time. The maintenance of the house worked perfect we had some questions and Stephanie and Jim were really fast in responding.

The yard: Perfect from the grill to the large yard and the pool. And same as the house the size of the yard gave everyone the chance to choose sit and read a book in peace and quiet or join the fun in the pool.

Cave Creek: 10 min drive very to a nice western town with great restaurants and bars.

All we can say if you are looking for a great place, nice owners, excellent area and a vacation spot filled with fun, beauty and a good Arizona experience rent this great place from Vicki and Danny.

PS. Comment from our 27 year old son who stayed with us for 4 days.

“ I wish I could stay longer, this place is great!!”

Vicki and Danny Thanks from Kjell-Ove, Sandra and the kids.

And as the movie quote goes

“ I/We will be back”

Peaceful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Lone Mountain with the family. The outdoor space was magnificent; we were content to visit on site and enjoy the pool, hot tub and outdoor fire pit. Such beautiful plants and so very private and well groomed.

We would definitely stay at this site again.

Thanks Vicki for the smooth transitions that allowed us to spend a full week here.

A Great "Winter" Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a two week stay at the Rancho Tierra home. We loved everything about it, but especially loved the outdoor spaces. We spent every minute we could overlooking the pool and and listening to the gentle waterfall. Even made friends with the fish. The house was spacious and very comfortable. The property owners and managers responded to our every request and even allowed us early access to the property. We returned home suntanned and so relaxed.

The Cave Creek/Carefree area is so unique and such a great place to visit. We love Tontos and Bryans BBQ, and just being in the desert surrounded by mountains. Thank you Vicki for sharing your home with us. Hope to return in the future.

Great Christmas rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Our pre-trip arrangements were easy and quick. All of our questions were answered promptly. Upon our arrival, the home was as advertised. It was spacious and bright. Furnishings were comfortable for lounging and the kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals and feeding 12 for Christmas dinner. The house was clean and tastefully decorated for Christmas.

The location was good for us. Day hike trail heads were a short distance away, as were shopping and restaurants.

Thanks Vicki!
