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 pool and cooking in our newly remodeled kitchen.

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. If you are interested in hosting an event, please read description below and restrictions below.
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 pool. As of September 1, 2021 we have installed a newly remodeled kitchen and stove (photos to follow).
It's a 5BR (READ ROOM LAYOUT BELOW), 4½BA home with old 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 gatherings on property over 50 people due to restrictions in the neighborhood. Smaller family gatherings with no loud amplified music are allowed with permission and additional fees for clean up and usage.

This is a 1960's ranch home. Remodeled kitchen has stainless steel appliances, new 5-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 from the highly breathable Purple Mattress company (my favorite!) 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 wood floors, satillo tile, and carpet in one bedroom. The master bedroom doors open out to the lush grounds & sparkling pool (heated on request for $75/day). All bathrooms have been remodeled with travertine floors. The laundry area is complete with front loading washer and dryer. And yes, unlike other short term rentals, you are WELCOME to use our washer and dryer, which is stocked with detergent.

The back half of the property has a lake, Lilly lined stream, basketball court, tennis court, volleyball court, ping pong table, citrus trees, bocce ball, 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

Tennis court: Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm-10pm and Saturday from 9am-1pm the tennis court is reserved for the co-owner. The tennis players use the tennis court and pavilion adjacent to the court which is located at the far north end of the 5 acre lot away from the main home.

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 house has keyless entry for easy check in and check out. The house manager, Clete, is available to help you if needed via text. 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 is also one very mellow 12 lb dog who lives with him.

The 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 4 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.

Where you’ll be

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.

My husband Will and I live in Park City, Utah, by way of Austin and Venice Beach.

Will is originally from Alaska and I am from Phoenix. We now have three girls who have expanded our tribe to 5.

We are both visual artists. I am a professional photographer and hand bag maker and Will is a visual effects artist working in the movie industry.

We love all things outdoors. On the weekends you’ll find us hiking and camping with the kids, skiing in the winter, and wake surfing in the summer.

We have rented from airbnb for our own personal travel and are excited for the opportunity to give back to the traveler community by allowing other guests to stay at our home. We hope you enjoy the property as much as we have in the past.
