Imagine drinking your homemade cocktail by our waterfall and catfish filled lake. Taking a stroll up the creek to the koi pond at sunset. Playing volleyball and basketball with your friends. Enjoying a dip in our salt-water pool....

The space
This is an amazing property in a prime Paradise Valley location. Please note that during this COVID outbreak we are taking extra special precautions with our cleaning after each guest...disinfecting the frequently touched surfaces and floors, Microban sanitizing spray, peroxide for all bathrooms and kitchen. Also, the health of our tenants is more important than profits, in that light we are allowing a mandatory day rest between bookings so no one is checking in and out on the same day. We feel that it's important to give our listing a rest between tenants.

The property boasts a catfish filled lake, running stream, bocce ball court, koi pond, 2 waterfalls, basketball court, volleyball court, pool table, giant 60-inch TV, work-out room, and sparkling salt water pool. It's a 5BR (READ ROOM LAYOUT BELOW), 4½BA home with tons of southwest charm and gorgeous views. All of these amenities are EXCLUSIVE to the home, single tenant, and owners. They are NOT part of a neighborhood community.
Please note, we do NOT host weddings on property due to restrictions in the neighborhood. Smaller family gatherings with no amplified music are allowed with permission and possibly additional fees for clean up and usage.

This is a 1960's ranch home. Remodeled kitchen has stainless steel appliances, 4-burner gas stove, granite tile counter tops, large center island & custom cabinets. The family room boasts a pool table and 60 inch TV. The guest rooms have been recently updated and remodeled with guest comfort in mind. The California king bed and queen beds are temperpedic and amazingly comfortable. Our 4th bedroom has two twin beds and 5th bedroom has a full bed. Home has a total of 6 beds with the option of adding an air mattress in the family room if needed.

The home has hard wood floors, satillo tile, and carpet in one bedroom. The master bedroom doors open out to the lush grounds & sparkling salt water pool. All bathrooms have been remodeled with travertine floors. The laundry area is complete with front loading washer and dryer. Other features of the home include a pool, billiard table and baby grand piano.

The back half of the property has a lake, Lilly lined stream, basketball court, tennis court, volleyball court, ping pong table, citrus trees, koi pond, and catfish filled lake. This is a cozy and inviting home in the most amazingly tranquil setting.

Clete, is our on-site manager who lives on property in the detached guest house. He will be available when you check in to help get you acquainted to the property. Please note that he lives on property as well and takes care of the two dogs. He stays to himself during guest stays and lives behind a screen

From November until May on Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm-10pm and Saturday from 10am-3pm the tennis court is reserved for the co-owner.

You will have access to the pool, front lawn, entire home, backyard including tennis court, basketball court and bocce ball court as well as the area around the lake and koi pond. The pool has a grill and gazebo area for relaxing as well.

The sport pavilion is a small 900 square foot modern structure which is available at an additional $500/day (plus $100 one time additional cleaning fee). It includes an indoor kitchen, grill, two televisions, large outdoor gas fire pit, restroom facilities, and floor to ceiling windows that overlook the tennis court and surrounding mountains.

The house manager, Clete, will help you when you arrive. He is a permanent tenant who lives on property in the detached guest house and can help answer questions you may have. Clete stays to himself during the stay of our guests to ensure your privacy. There are also two very mellow dogs who live with him. They may be out of site during your stay but feel free to request their company if you would prefer them around.

The saltwater pool can be heated for an additional $75/day. We would need to know at least two days in advance to begin heating the pool.

Please note that weekends from October-April require a minimum 3 night stay.

In the Summer months, (June-mid September) the furniture around the lake and fire pit is put into storage for protection from the excessive summer heat.

Guest access
You will have access to all sport courts (basketball, bocce ball, ping pong), pool, poolside BBQ, gazebo, front lawn, entire home with shared access to the tennis court (the co-owner will use on occasion). This is not a community property! It's a private 5 acre estate. The sport pavilion (not featured in any of the photos) is a small detached unit available at an additional $500/day (plus $150 one time additional cleaning fee) for groups of 20 or less. It is a 900 square foot air conditioned pavilion which includes an indoor kitchen, grill, two televisions, large outdoor gas fire pit, restroom facilities, and floor to ceiling windows that overlook the tennis court and surrounding mountains. The tennis pavilion available at an additional rate as it requires more cooling, maintenance, and cleaning above and beyond the main house.

If you plan to use the tennis court, please note that you will need to bring non-marking tennis shoes. If you don't have any but would still like to play, inquire with our property manager to see if we have any back ups available.

This is a 5 acre estate and maintenance and upkeep is imperative to keeping the property looking its best. Please note that there may be maintenance, our pool guy, or landscape people on the grounds during your stay.

Location

Paradise Valley, Arizona, United States

This is a very quiet neighborhood. The gated home is perfectly situated if you're interested in biking, hiking, golf or spas. The surrounding lots are all on 5 acre parcels so there is a lot of privacy and peace in the backyard.

The home is just under a mile away from the Sanctuary Resort, Phoenician Resort, and Montelucia Resort...all of which have award winning restaurants and spas.
It is just two blocks away from the Cholla trial which is the starting point for the hike up the east side of Camelback Mountain.
