Property Description

Formally an artist studio in the making this is More than a vacation - this is home away from home with all the things you would expect when visiting family.  You can literally just bring your suitcase (well, almost). Our 1,000 square foot guest house is decorated Arizona casual/rustic/luxury style. Located at the back of our ¾ Acre lot with 180+ degrees panoramic views of McDowell, Mazatal Mountain Range and Four Peaks mountain ranges.  Incredible sunsets and sunrises – cozy, comfortable and all the privacy you wish.  We managed to keep some of the Russian artist's studio character with his custom loft, trusses you will see that actually support the roof with no nails and the old custom wood door that now hangs as an art piece on the north exterior wall.  

This cozy casita is completely furnished - just bring your clothes.  This is more like going to visit family than a sterile vacation rental.  Shop for groceries at our Basha's or Safeway stores only 5 minutes away.  You will find pots, pans, slow cooker, 2 coffee pots (full and single cup), coffee and tea, microwave, convection oven, gas stovetop, dish soap, laundry soap, bar & liquid shower soap, condiments, sugar, flour, gluten free flour.  Even a firelog for your first outdoor firepit experience.

Walk through the 42" rustic knotty alder door into the open concept great room with soaring vaulted ceilings and 6' high windows to maximize the panoramic views of the mountains. And don't worry the windows are equipped with power operated custom blinds for privacy.  But you won't need them - the casita sits far back on our lot with no houses near by - not even the main house.

The greatroom's media center hides a 55”  flat screen TV with access to Amazon Prime  movies, TV Shows and games  as well as we have supplied you with a streaming media box that can access almost any channel worldwide including your favorite sports games from all over the world.  The Leather sectional folds out to a queen size bed or there is a rollaway queen bed for your guests or just ask and we will supply you with a queen size very comfortable air mattress.  

The chef's kitchen was designed with black and red distressed cabinets that are totally stocked with spices, condiments, pots, pans, utensils, dinnerware, etc.  The red granite countertops will remind you of the American Flag.  This fully stocked kitchen features all stainless steel appliances -automatic dishwasher, gas cooking, built-in microwave, convection oven, French door refrigerator/freezer, full sized coffee maker, and almost anything a gourmet chef would want in a kitchen – but remember you are on vacation – so we included a gas BBQ Grill to get you out of the kitchen.  The 6' tall windows located over the sink will have everyone in your party begging to do dishes. 

You will be totally relaxed in the master suite.  A California King 'Sleep Number' bed will almost guarantee you a great night’s sleep.  Custom built in dual closets offer plenty of room for hanging clothes and numerous drawers for everything else or store your personals in the cedar lined chest of drawers.  

There is a large linen closet in the hallway with extra bath and bed linens, towels and blankets.   We included a flat screen TV in the master suite also so you can catch up on the nightly news.  

The ensuite bathroom will awe you with the huge walk-in shower with shower jets for a steam or shower.  The custom mesquite vanity with dual sinks was made special for this space and is definitely a conversation piece.  Go through the bathroom door for access to a very special private patio for western sunsets or have your morning coffee while relaxing in the rocking chairs with panoramic views of the McDowell Mountains.  

The stacked washer/dryer in the closet across from the powder room is complete with an iron and ironing board, soaps and rinses so you can keep ahead of your laundry. 

Outside you will discover how private our property is and how beautiful the desert can be.  You will have your own firepit for our cool desert evenings, a gas BBQ for cooking outdoors and plenty of fun games in the storage drawers for indoors and outdoors. There are even soft throws to wrap yourself in outdoors while sitting by the fire.

There is access to DirectTV, free cable WiFi, Free Movies and entertainment.  And you are invited to relax with us, the owners, by our huge boulder firepit for Friday night franks and S'mores or Sam’s famous guacamole, chips and salsa.

We are located close to several award winning golf courses; walking distance to shopping, churches, the Public Library and Activities Center and of course the Fountain! Hike over the ridge to the fountain with us.  Bring your dog – we and the town are dog friendly. 

The new OdySea Aquarium and Dolphinarius have opened next to Butterfly World just 20 minutes away.

You will enjoy watching the families of quail in the morning as you sip your coffee. You might even catch some javelina as they scamper down the back of the main house for a quick drink from the bird bath or the coyotes who escape the heat in the washes behind the guest house.
