A brilliant property

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular home. It is truly a luxury property and you will feel very much at home. It is spacious and clean. The dock and deck are an adventure. We have been there two different years and plan to return. It is clean, beautiful, well maintained, has everything you could wish for in the kitchen and GOOD beds. What more can you want. Oh, yes, we caught fish.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weekend of relaxation on this wonderful property. The location is spectacular...a gated community, great scenery, quiet and peaceful. The house was perfect for our group. Having the casita attached to the main house allowed our 2nd family with kids their own place. We wanted to be on the lake in order for all to enjoy some outdoor activities. The kids played in the leaves, picked pine cones, went for walks and played at the basketball/tennis courts, while the adults spent most of the time on the dock fishing, canoeing, relaxing on the patio or enjoying a camp fire each night.

The fall colors were gorgeous. Location is also close to shopping, sight-seeing and lots of local restaurants to try.

Definitely a memorable weekend for our family!!

Relaxing View @ Cabin on Rainbow Lake

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I were looking for a relaxing way to spend out 5 year wedding anniversary with our 2 dogs - and this was perfect. Very quiet and beautiful view. Cabin is located in very upscale neighborhood that was a lot of fun to walk the dogs & look at all the big beautiful homes. The picture of the lake is a good depiction of your view every day - can't go wrong! This would be a great home to go with 2 other couples as there is plenty of room, privacy & bathrooms for all. The huge deck off the back is fantastic & where we spent most of our time.

Owner was very accommodating & answered all of our questions very well & very quickly. Deposit was returned with in a few days. I even left a pair of jeans which they graciously mailed back to me.

The only suggestion - if you plan on doing a lot of cooking make sure to bring all of the spices you need & potentially even some knives for cutting. Previous places we had stayed before had all been over run with spices previous occupants had left behind - so its the first time we brought all of our food up to prepare & realized we should have brought our spices too & had to run out. We are very big cookers & found a bit of a challenge cutting with any of the knives so I had to use my hubby's pocket knife to cut up veggies --- not a big deal at all -- just next time we will be prepared :-)

We have already recommended this to friends that we want to come back & do a group trip!

There is the Pine Top Brewery down the road that has very good BBQ and fun atmosphere.

Hope to be staying here again soon!!

A beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

My family and my friend's family enjoyed our stays at this beautiful house. It is well-furnished, spacious, comfortable, and very family-friendly. It is right by the lake! We felt very relaxed after skiing in Sunrise Ski Resort which was less than 40 minutes away from this house. Kids played board games around the fireplace while we were preparing dinner. :-)

House owner is very easy to communicate and her instructions are very helpful. We got the deposit back in a few days.

I'd highly recommend this beautiful house to those who are looking for a house to stay in White Mountains area.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic home! This is definitely a wonderful vacation property. We had the perfect family Christmas vacation, with plenty of room for everyone. It is very spacious and has a large open floor plan. The location could not have been more perfect, quiet and the view of the lake was wonderful! The owners are very helpful and I guarantee you will have a wonderful time.

My only criticism would be that the heat should have been turned on for our arrival as it took an entire day to warm the house. The hot water heater was not on and the handy man had to come and light it, which was very nice. Also, the cleaning people could use some improvement, all surfaces were dusty and don't look under the couch!

Impressive home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for 4 nights in early May. Our goal was to get away from work for a few days, decompress, and spend some time with my parents. Its hard to find a nice lakeside rental in Arizona. The house is as beautiful as displayed in the pictures and the rental rate is reasonable. I would agree that the amenities in the house make it an executive home. All the appliances are top of the line and the house is immaculate. During our visit the weather was beautiful and we spent a lot of time at the table outside and at the dock. A very refreshing vacation and locale.

Excellent communications with the landlord. There is no internet (as advertised) but we were able to pick up a wifi signal. The house is on Rainbow Lake and we had hoped to be more successful fishing. The lake is not a good fishing lake but you can catch small catfish from the dock.

A great experience. If a potential renter has any questions, ask the landlord via email. She was very forthcoming. I would and have recommend this house to close friends since returning from vacation
