Prescott House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, den, 2 bath, sleeps 2-4
Location, location, location! Private, spectacular panoramic views and extremely quiet Collins Hilltop Haven is on a cul de sac at the top of a very tall scenic hill. Shopping centers with the likes of Costco and Trader Joe's are within a mile away on the main highway which links Prescott Valley and downtown Prescott. But one wouldn't know it in this quiet neighborhood of expensive homes on big lots. CHH has a short south facing driveway with parking area and two car garage only feet from the covered archway and front door. There are NO STEPS here or anywhere in this well maintained and highly accessible home.
Come in wheeling the suitcases. The extensively windowed east facing wall of the vaulted Great Room allows a view that will not be forgotten. It is totally unobstructed and panoramic. In the distance, the Bradshaw Mountains and the often snow clad Mingus Mountains form the backdrop over Prescott Valley, which becomes a blanket of lights at night.
Take your shoes off. The plush wall to wall carpet is a treat for stockinged feet and one can tuck them up when lying on the giant sectional while viewing the 60 inch HD flat screen.
The well appointed tiled kitchen fills the entire wall at one end of the Great Room with only a large island to define it. The adjacent dining area table is set up for four, but there are eight chairs and two table leaves. The abundance of sunlight makes the house as bright as one wants. Windows have vertical blinds as does the sliding glass door leading to the outdoor carpeted back deck. Much time will be spent on this deck. There's no late day sun, it's very private overlooking a landscaped backyard and steep drop off. Did I mention the view?
Cooled air, drifting down from ceiling vents, makes for no drafts and a very comfortable feel. But when the outside temperature drops, one can crack open a few of the sliding windows to experience the great mountain breeze. The bedrooms are spacious and seem even bigger with mirrored sliding closet doors. The beds are very comfortable. The master suite is on a different end of the house from the other bedroom, den and guest bath. It is quiet, private, and quite luxurious.
One will be attuned to the wonderful Prescott weather and classic panoramic Arizona views when staying at conveniently located Collins Hilltop Haven.

About James Collins
We are both retired teachers that have lived in Northern Arizona for the past 40 years. Both of us grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and moved to Flagstaff to attend NAU in the early 70s. We met as colleagues in one of our first teaching jobs. We have been married for over 30 years, have three lovely daughters and two amazing grandsons.
James Collins purchased this house in 2012
Why James Collins chose Prescott
One of our daughters attended college in Prescott. We loved to visit her, enjoying the scenic beauty and activities available. We were impressed by the warmth and caring of the people in general. After an extended stay, we decided that this will be the place we eventually move to. This gorgeous place seemed to fall in our lap at just the right time. We want to share it with others until we are ready to move here permanently!
What makes this house unique
Our home is so quiet and private although it is close to everything! The views are amazing!! Our goal has been to make it as comfortable as possible.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear James and Katie,
Thank you for your gracious note. We fully intended to write our comments in your guest book, but the entire week was such a whirlwind that we rushed out without doing so. Please feel free to use part or all of this letter on your website.
First of all, thank you both so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely home on such short notice. Our trip came up so suddenly that the other VRBO inquiries we made largely went unanswered. Thank goodness James called us early the next morning and we were able to get the arrangements made. Your home was a perfect spot for our trip. We have stayed in many other rental houses over the years, but you have truly made this a "home away from home". The kitchen is so well stocked that there is no need to run to the store for spices or condiments. . . . . everything is there!! Amazing!! Our entire stay was perfect and very comfortable.
We are so excited about finding our dream home in Prescott and beginning this next chapter in our lives. If we need a place to stay during our move, we will most certainly give you a call.
