Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two month stay at 2478 Hillside was initially a stop between homes that turned into a vacation that enabled my wife and I to continue our Prescott activities. The location in Prescott Canyon had great views, sunsets, and wildlife which Prescott has in abundance. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Arizona Room for her art and writing. The Community Clubhouse has all the amenities needed for physical activity; also, we found the home owners to be very friendly. The Potter's and their agent anticipated our needs in a positive way. We ould definitely stay here again.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I moved from Las Vegas to Prescott the first of October 2015. We left our things in storage back in the desert and booked this vacation rental for three months to become more familiar with the area before we made the leap to live here permanently.

The house was perfect for us. The owners are extremely helpful and provided everything to make our stay comfortable and trouble-free. The setting is beautiful and serene. The views and sunsets are incredible. The location is great for exploring Prescott and the surrounding areas.

We have a small dog so securing a pet-friendly rental was at the top of our list. Our pooch loved her long walks around the property. She was also extremely excited to see the neighborhood rabbits and deer.

Thanks to our great accommodations and enjoyable stay we now know Prescott is the place we want to call home!

An incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and have availed ourselves of the VRBO site many times. We can honestly say that this was the best experience ever! We spent the month of April, 2015 here, and were delighted with everything it had to offer. The pictures do not come anywhere close to doing it justice. Everything we could possibly need or want was available to us. All the amenities of home, and then some. We were impressed with the quietness. No traffic noise, no loud neighbors, just peace and quiet. Barbara and Ernie were excellent landlords, and were available for any and all questions, of which there were few. The clubhouse was amazing, although we spent little time there, as we were so busy exploring the area. It was actually a fact finding mission for us, with the possibility of retirement in that region in the future. Trips to the Grand Canyon, Old Tucson and Jerome were easily within reach. The amenities were numerous. Barbara and Ernie really did think of everything--even a sewing kit, a first aid kit and a binder containing information on all of the appliances, etc. The home was in close proximity to many restaurants, shopping centers, and not far from the town square which we visited often. This would definitely be out first choice for a great place to stay should we have such a need in the future. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!!

Beautiful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd winter stay at the same address. Last year we stayed Jan. & Feb. This year we stayed Jan., Feb., & Mar. because we enjoyed it so much here. The owners, Barb & Ernie, are the nicest landlords you could ask for. Their home is completely furnished and well taken care of. They provide all the necessaties, including bath towels, laundry soap, dish soap, even toilet paper. They even give you a box of chocolates to start your stay. The weather is wonderful. The hikng trails in the mountains are exciting. The people here are very friendly. The scenery is fantastic. We'll be back next year!

All-Around Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental for the month of October, 2013. The owners, Barb & Ernie, met us at the arranged time, gave us the keys to the unit, mailbox, and clubhouse. They explained how to work the air conditioning and provided the wifi access code. They also provided us with a box of candy from Prescott Pralines, such a sweet welcome. The unit was immaculate, well-maintained, with everything in working order. We had a few questions after settling in and they came right down and provided the guidance we needed. I should mention that the unit comes equipped with a binder of all appliances, fixtures, etc. with complete operating instructions and contact info. They even provided a pair of binoculars for bird watching. It truly was as advertised "just bring your tooth brush". There's also a separate storage room with additional supplies. The views from the front deck were beautiful and we got some great pictures of the sunrises and sunsets. It is so quiet -- no sirens, no road noise, just the occasional family of quails and blue jays. Because we were in the process of relocating, we didn't play tourist as much as we began acquainting ourselves with the area. Still, we carved out some time for exploring and recommend that you don't miss Whiskey Row for the shops & galleries, Courthouse Square for a step back in time, take a drive out to Granite Dells, visit the many restaurants and bars (we particularly liked Rosa's Pizzeria and the Dinner Box Cafe). Everyone was friendly, welcoming, and ready with recommendations and suggestions of where to go and what to do. There's also a Target, a movie theater, and a drive-thru Starbucks right across the street. And if you're from California, there's an In+ Out, Trader Joe's, Michael's, and World Market in the mall. This is a retirement (55+) community and one of the renters must meet that criteria. We were more than satisfied with all aspects of our stay.

cozy wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

The screen pouch with the cozy fireplace made the view wonderful. Just right size for two people. Altho we did have another couple stay an overnite and said the pull out couch was very comfortable. Everything was PERFECT for our months stay! Clean and well maintained. I would recommend this home for the adventurous couple. So much to do in the Prescott area...
