Guestbook comments from the owner

Hakan and Kaye are indeed ideal hosts – attentive, anticipating our needs and very willing to accommodate any requests. My wife and I stayed in their adorable casita for 5 nights. We relished the made-to-order breakfasts with fresh squeezed orange juice and took breathtaking hikes in the nearby desert preserves suggested by Hakan. The casita was tastefully appointed and the bed oh-so-comfy. There was plenty of space in the closet and bathroom to put things away, so we didn’t have to live out of our suitcases. We are madly scanning our calendars looking for our opportunity to return. [Originally posted on another site. Guests accommodation was Bed & Breakfast]

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house and Kay and Hakan have truly thought of everything that you need while you are here. Pool was fantastic as was the desert views. We saw plenty of wildlife which was amazing and we made use of the bikes for our cycle rides when it was a little cooler. We loved the Cave Creek area. Would totally recommend staying here.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Great house and outside area. The owner was very helpful when we first arrived. Since we didn't have any issues which is a good thing we didn't have any more contact. The kitchen was the best stocked of any we've encountered in the past. The pool and the outside areas were second to none. The inside was very upscale, a cause of concern because we had two small children but we didn't cause any damage to this lovely home. It's location was superb close to restaurants etc but yet private.

Great vacation spot

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Hakan and Kay for the use of your property. We had fabulous time in the area. House is very well supplied. There is abundance of everything from plates and utensils to towels. Excellent supply of consumables including soaps etc. Just show up with your clothes! House is located in a very quiet neighborhood but has easy access to all amenities grocery stores restaurants 5 to 10 minutes away. Lots to do in the area and many more activities can be assessed with a 30 minutes to 45 minute drive. For the kids pool is heated and we'll maintained with a good wifi connection, every kids wish. Patio area is relaxing and it's own little paradise. This was our first VRBO experience and we have absolutely no regrets. This is definitely in our plans for the future. Hakan and Kay were easily accessible and responded very quickly to our questions.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a serene and beautiful place to stay. Lots of comfort and upscale touches all over. And most especially the hosts were fantastic and accommodating, without ever being in the way. We highly recommend Araminta House. We both loved it and will surely make this a yearly tradition at the minimum.

Nicest Spring Training Stay

  • 5 of 5

Araminta house is beautifully done, and the location was perfect for us. We had all our meals outside on the patio. And for people who like to cook, it is hard to imagine a better equipped kitchen. The large lot meant the neighbors weren't too close. And the pool is a nice shape for lap swimming. We hope to book this house again next spring.

Araminta House is located where North Scottsdale and Phoenix meet Cave Creek and Carefree which means you get the best of Sonoran desert experience for hiking, biking and riding combined with closeness to urban conveniences like grocery stores, restaurants and bars. Our neighborhood is very safe with mainly large homes on even larger (1 acre+) lots. Going south we are about 40 minutes from the Sky Harbor Phoenix airport. Continuing south there is another 1.5h to Tucson or 2h to the Mexican border. Going north there is just under 2 hours to Sedona and then another 1.5h to the Grand Canyon south rim. If you have never been to Las Vegas, then it is only 5h away.
