Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Byron and Vicki,

Our family had a wonderful Christmas in you villa. What a beautiful home and gorgeous location and view. The "boys" loved the golfing. The little ones had so much fun running down the hallway. Us girls loved the kitchen and the warm and homey family room. Then there's the pizza oven which with Byron's help was a huge success. I could go on and on! Thanks for your hospitality! Take care and have a Happy New Year!

Stayed there with my 3 sons and we had such an amazing time... the house is spectacular and Vicki and Byron made sure everything was absolutely perfect for our stay.

Would recommend Mari to come and cook for you while you are there and if your looking for golf help, Dennis did a great job coordinating everything for us!

Beautiful Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

3 family members stayed at the beautiful Villa Paloma for 4 nights. What an amazing property! The house is exquisite, spacious and beautifully-maintained. We cooked in the kitchen (which has everything you need for delicious meals), enjoyed the many HD TVs, relaxed poolside in one of a few dozen comfy chairs, played on the 2 putting greens, grilled and made pizza in the outdoor cooking area, picked lemons right from the tree. The owners live on the property, but their home is discreetly tucked out of sight of the villa. They were available to help with anything we needed, including teaching us how to use the wood grill for pizza. We travel a lot but have never experienced anything quite like this. We highly recommend Villa Paloma!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our trip to Villa Paloma and golfing in Scottsdale. We had a group of 8 guys and couldn't have imagined a better place to stay. The house and grounds are perfectly maintained. Vicki and Byron are incredible hosts. Thank you for a great weekend.

holiday season getaway

  • 5 of 5

Family of 7, 3 generations, visited the week after Christmas. The house was extravagantly done up for Xmas, which was a lovely add-on. We've done big VRBO houses 3 or 4 times before, but never before with on-property owners, which was GREAT. Vicki and Byron were incredibly responsive and helpful, including on the final day when I was desperate for a tool for my bicycle and Byron interrupted his dinner to come over and help me out. Some other (hopefully differentiated and differentiating) comments: the house is PALATIAL, 20 foot ceilings etc. makes it feel very different (and a treat!) compared to anything like a normal house or hotel room; the location of the house is spectacular also, great view of the mountains and really puts one in touch with the true feel of the desert and creates that AAAHH of escape and relaxation....it is UNBELIEVABLY quiet esp. at night; flip side of great location is that it is pretty far from "town", although the flip side of that is it's pretty close to great golf, hiking, bicycling e.g. McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Pinnacle Peak, etc. At Vicki's recommendation we also had a dinner catered in, which was a great experience, especially with the massive bar in the Great Room for appetizers. All in all, if you want a very luxurious getaway that gives you an authentic experience of the sunny desert, you cannot go wrong here.

Here You Will Long For A Return

  • 5 of 5

......and so we did, just five months after our maiden visit.

We just couldn't stay away for long. Many times we shared the Villa Paloma experience with friends so it was easy to convince them to join us when the next opportunity arose. Our stories set the bar very high. Whether it was the location, amenities, home design, or the hospitality of the owners, our friends were convinced their high expectations had been exceeded.

As for us, our longing to return did have to last long at all. We settled in quickly this time. It felt like coming home.

Can't wait to come back!
