John Bigelow purchased this house in 2006

Why John Bigelow chose Arizona

Cave Creek is a wonderful town with so much to offer. Cave Creek offers great restaurants and historic shops. There is great golfing along with resort amenities, shopping, clubbing, antiquing and again its all very close to some of the best golfing available. Dove Valley, Desert Mountain, Wildfire, Rancho Manana and more just to name a few. Nearby events include, Spring training, Coyotes, Cardinals, Suns, Diamondbacks, Fiesta Bowl, Barrett Jackson, TPC and all that there is to enjoy in AZ.

What makes this house unique

Besides having your own personal 9 hole miniature golf course? This home has everything including a large theatre room with 3 televisions and a large drop down projecter, 6 satellite receivers, sonic radio, movie channels, sports and news channels. Did I mention there is access to music through our control 4 automation system or you can plug in your own music and listen throughout the home. The property is private with a gated front entrance and a block wall surrounding the whole 4.5 acre estate for privacy. The pictures will tell the story!

This property is amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 adults celebrating our 40th birthday in Arizona. We chose this house really by the pictures that we saw but the pictures did no justice to this house...it is amazing! John was awesome, anytime that we had any questions he got back to us within minutes. he gave us lots of suggestions on what to do in the area, even where to get groceries delivered to the house. A lot of us are planning to come back with our own families. Even though it was all adults that went to the house we all kept talking about how our kids would love this place. Thanks again John we will be back!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

A small golf vacation for a few guys to celebrate a son's/nephew’s 16th birthday turned into a full-blown vacation for 4 families with 17 people (8 adults, 9 kids between the ages of 5-16). Our biggest issue, where do we stay with all of these people? We needed to find something where the kids would be entertained and the adults could enjoy themselves. This vacation probably would not have happened if we did not find John's house in Cave Creek.

The pictures you see do not do this property justice - the house is magnificent. Great open entertaining space, 1st class gourmet kitchen, beautiful dining room w/ mountain views, master suite you have to see to believe! Accommodations were perfect for our group and every aspect of the house was enjoyed – you truly did not have to leave (and we only did once!) Amenities were all first class – outdoor pool area w/ swim up bar/grill; mini-golf (which the kids loved and was very fun); trampoline; basketball court; theatre room (w/ full bath that opened to the outside - key for the long days at the pool) and game room were all utilized to their max. Indoor/outdoor entertainment system completed the great entertainment package. John and his family tried to think of everything in this house and it is definitely an entertainers paradise.

For those familiar with the Phoenix area, Cave Creek is in a great spot for a vacation. Far enough north to be out of the hustle of the valley, you definitely feel secluded and away from the craziness of normal life, yet close enough to the necessary vacation amenities - golf, grocery stores and other necessities (like Starbucks) are all very close. We took a day trip to Sedona, and the ride was about an hour and a half, so its convenient to other local attractions too.

I am a home owner (as many of us are), so I always expect issues when I rent houses/villas (and I do it often) – key is for the owner to be responsive to these issues, and John definitely was. We did have a few issues and he took immediate ownership and worked hard to fix the situation. In one case, he could not get an AC issue resolved timely, so he catered a Mexican meal for our group on the final night! (Thanks John!)

Overall, an absolutely fabulous vacation in a great location at a wonderful house. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a private resort disguised as a house We didn’t even mind the 115 degree heat! Only question for my group is how quickly will we be able to return??

Great Vacation Rental for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 families (22 ppl) stay at this property in March of 2013 and it was fun for all ages. We hardly left the property at all. The heated pool was amazing, and that along with the horseshoe/basketball/tennis courts and media room kept everyone, including our 12 kids ranging in age from 2 to 15, entertained and busy. The spacious layout allowed everyone to have their own space and John, the owner, was accomodating and quick to respond with any question or request before and during the trip. We had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation and we are already planning our return trip.

edited to add: Return trip has been planned for April 2015! Kids and adults are still talking about how much fun everyone had! Would highly recommend!

Wedding, wedding party hang out August 2011

  • 5 of 5

We had my wedding here back in 2011. People are still talking about how much fun they had! We absolutely loved everything about the house and the owner. John was wonderful to rent from. He did everything we needed. We had a very large wedding party who came from out of state so we rented the place for everyone to hang out. We originally planned to go out and do stuff with everyone..we ended up only leaving to costco to get food. There is no reason to leave once you have food. Everything you would want to do on vacation can be done here. All the kids and adults had the time of their life. I would rent it again in a split second.

I would also recommend it for anyone wanting to hold an event such as a wedding. It was easy for service ppl (caterers, table rentals, etc ) to come in and set up. We set up enough tables for 100 ppl and a dance floor inside. I wouldn't have changed anything about having my wedding here.

For those who are leaving bad reviews your crazy! This house is a dream house with a very easy going owner. I HIGHLY recommend it for any family!!!
