Cave Creek Villa Rental Photos and Description

Great rustic chic ranch with stables pool and outdoor entertaining too

Come to your own Cave Creek AZ ranch to relax, swim in a private pool, and enjoy the serenity, spectacular views, golf, art, wildlife or adventure that awaits you in your own western ranch oasis. The Lucky 8 Ranch is located in the Sonoran Desert. This secluded ranch with all the comforts is just 1 mile from the 'Cowboys and Caviar' (including art galleries, restaurants, golf, and more) of Cave Creek and Carefree Arizona. Lucky 8 Ranch sits on two and a half acres of pristine desert and takes advantage of 360 degree mountain views.

Wake up with the desert and experience beautiful sunrises while enjoying a hot cup of cocoa, coffee, or hot tea, on your private porch, deck or rear deck off an office.

Head into 'town' and spend the afternoons shopping and dining in historical downtown Cave Creek or Carefree AZ, or if you prefer, relax poolside with your favorite book and a fresh brewed iced tea, spring water or iced coffee.

Brilliant sunsets and mountain views from the pool and the property alert you to watch for the excitement of the desert wildlife, and the crackle of a cowboy campfire just waiting for stories and tall tales. You'll especially enjoy the indoor and the rustic outdoor fireplaces.

But, you can also relax at the end of the day in front of hugh flat screen HD TV in the comfortable living room and enjoy a spacious master bedroom suite. There are two other western themed bedrooms which can be configured for two twins in each, or two king sized beds with sleep inducing pillow topped mattresses. Your dream rental is waiting for you.

Planning a golf adventure or meeting? The place is minutes from The Boulders, several awesome golf facilities, and is outfitted to serve as the perfect spot for a business meeting or mastermind.

About David and Robin Frees

This is our family get away and the conforts show it. We're from the east coast but have always wanted a desert escape and oasis. This property is used by our adult children, our parents, and friends and several weeks of rental have been donated to our favorite charities. We know that you'll enjoy it as much as we all do.

David and Robin Frees purchased this villa in 2011

Why David and Robin Frees chose Cave Creek

We bought this beautiful ranch property so that we could retire and keep horses right at home. But until we do, we love the hiking, trail riding (the trail goes right in front of the hose), unbelievable views, the awsesome town of Cave Creek and the golf and life style. The views are stunning with mountains in all directions and visible from the pool.

What makes this villa unique

This property has everything that a golf vacation, summer or winter get away, or a family trip needs to be what you've dreamed about. From the views, to the pool, to the fireplace, and cowboy fire kettle, to the art work, western themed rooms, spacious master, and wild life, you'll have one great experience after another. Close to town but out in the country. It has it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great to have Josh, Jamie, Alex and Meredith to stay with us at our new getaway. Spent time shopping in Cave Creek, eating out in Cave Creek, watching beautiful sunsets every night. Had a great day of renting a pontoon boat at Bartlett Lake Marina just a short distance from this great desert get away. We have a tack room and horse stalls if you trailer your horses but if lazing by the pool is your idea of a great time then we've got you covered too. Finally finished furnishing the ranch and outfitting the kitchen, office and other amenities! Come and stay and have a great southwestern vacation or gold trip.

Our Cave Creek Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing time at Lucky 8 Ranch. The ranch had everything we could have possible have needed. Felt like home away from home. Cave Creek area was wonderful. There is something for everyone. Great shopping, restaurants and walking/hiking trails. Enjoyed an early morning walk on the trail every day after our coffee. We even got to see some local wildlife. Will definitely be back again next year!!

The Perfect Arizona Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the Lazy 8 Ranch for a girls getaway and we had a fantastic time !

We arrived in Cave Creek expecting warm weather but was met with a storm. The change in weather took us by surprise but thankfully this home was fully equipted for any event. In the center of a beautifully decorated living room was a circular fireplace , in the garage was plenty of wood ,so we made a fire and watched movies on the incredible Plasma screen T.V and DVD. We marveled at the luxurious surrounding and found ourselves grateful for the strorm . We had a great time staying indoors , watching the desert scenery outside the large bay window change with the storm, was a surreal experience . There were beautiful birds outside our window every day , rabbits under the citrus trees in the morning and the distant sound of coyote's at night . The house is all it is advertised as and more. The kitchen is perfect , the bedrooms spacious and clean, gorgeous tile throughout and a private bathtub in the master bedroom . The property is serene and beautiful . There was even a grapefruit tree loaded with fruit . Fresh grapefuit just outside the front door , picked each morning added to our breakfast and was another unexptected delight .The Wi Fi was easy to connect to as well .

We dined at Chef Sara's Raw and Vegan Academy and had the best lunch we have ever had. We hiked at Spurs Crossing conservation area when the sun came out and shopped everywhere.

If you are looking for a clean, spacious , beautifully decorated home that oozes comfort , this is the place.We had a problem figuring out the DVD and called the property management team . They arrived within ten minutes and promptly figured out the issue for us, which was an operational one on my part. We loved this home and hope to come back again. Everything about it from inquiring about the availability , the lease , security deposits and even finding it in the dark when we arrived , was a breeze. We definitely will be returning . This place is awesome .

Cave Creek is an old western town. The NewYork Times travel section has dubbed it the intersection of 'cowboys (the old west) and caviar' (the new shopping and affluent vacation spot). Our little ranch is located only one mile from the town and all of it's restaurants, shopping and more. Yet it's also only a mile from horseback ridding and hiking. Great views in all directions.
