Peaceful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful & relaxing property. We enjoyed just sitting on the back patio watching the wildlife. The house was larger than expected. We really enjoyed using the chefs kitchen to entertain some friends that were passing through. Thanks to the owner for recommending some local establishments. Great stay, plan on staying again next year.

Beautiful but with partially disfunctional floor plan

  • 4 of 5

This property is large, well-appointed and beautiful; however, there are a few details that DEFINITELY should have been explained on the website. Most importantly is that 2 of the bedrooms can only be accessed by either going THROUGH the master bedroom or OUTSIDE along the back of the house and back inside via a door by the pool. There is a small bathroom with a shower adjacent to the pool area that is accessible only from outside of the house that is near those 2 bedrooms, but otherwise they would be sharing the master bath with the occupants of the master bedroom and it has NO DOOR whatsoever! That entire wing of the house is very awkward, to say the least. Our group was a bunch of close friends who were willing to make it work, but it could definitely be a deal-breaker in some situations.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped except for a couple of areas that we believe were supposed to be water features of some sort (fountains?). They had stagnant water and were black and mildew-filled. We were there in February and the pool was filled, but there was no functioning heater. Freezing cold water is not attractive at that time of the year. Also disappointing was the fact that there was no hot tub.

All that being said, there are multiple really nice outdoor living spaces, the location is good and the house was clean.

Poor experience w/deposit refund & communication

  • 1 of 5

We had a great trip, the house is well equipped and has beautiful outdoor space. However the house is really a 3 BEDROOM. There are 2 bedrooms that you have to walk through the master to get to and you all share a bathroom. Not ideal unless using the rooms for children.

More importantly, our experience after we left has been unfortunate. When we left the house we reported issue with the code lock, 11 days after departure our deposit was returned (6 days late) and with no prior communication $250 was removed due to the lock. I've asked for an invoice and photos twice with no response.

Case del Sol is Good for the Soul

  • 4 of 5

We spent our Spring Break @ Casa del Sol (March 25-April 1) - it is a spacious, beautifully decorated, serene desert hideaway for those wanting to escape the busyness and noise of suburban life. The location, layout, and amenities listed in the description are accurate ... this is a comfortable and large home that can easily accommodate up to 10 people. The backyard is a desert oasis with lovely landscaping, a large pool, full bath, hottub, sundeck, and several seating areas to play cards, read and chillax. There is a dried up wash behind the home with the sounds of wildlife (howling coyotes, birds, etc.) providing a desert soundtrack - no worries, the yard is gated and secure from unwelcome visitors. The owner, Angela, is a delight to work with - always available to answer questions and address any concerns that may come up (we had two minor issues with the dishwasher and hottub and Angela was on it immediately with the maintenance man Mike, who fixed everything within the day). The kitchen is enormous with every appliance and utensil you would ever need - and unlike many rental homes there is a generous supply of condiments, spices, and random household products for use which we found super helfpful since running to the grocery store is not the first thing you want to do when you first land in a new place. The only thing we found challenging was working the lights ... it is a high tech push button system that took awhile to learn the zones. There is Dish TV with lots of channels available, but there is not a DVD player. Also, there are two bedrooms that you access via the master suite which can be an inconvenience at night and when someone is using the master bathroom. Overall, we loved our stay and enjoyed the town of Cave Creek and hiking Black Mountain. We also enjoyed Top Golf in Scottsdale, and Scottsdale Quarter for shopping, movies and restaurant options. We are happy to recommend this rental - especially for families wanting to spend quality time together enjoying the simple pleasures of cooking, eating, playing cards, swimming, sunning, and just hanging out.

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

The property is as advertised - plenty of space, including multiple outdoor options for seating. There were also plenty of rooms in the house to spread out - we felt there was more than enough space. The pool and hot tub were very nice. The location is secluded, which was great for us, but if you are looking for activities will need to drive. The owners leave a book with options, which was very helpful.

The house has everything you need for a great stay: kitchen utensils, outdoor grill, etc. The owners were a pleasure to deal with.
