Overview

Blue Ridge Hills House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

You'll LOVE my house. Relax at the solar heated pool or in the courtyard near the fountain. There are mountain views all around. Enjoy the 56' TV in the great room. Have a Zen experience in the Jetted tub. Walk to town for a great breakfast and a little shopping. Hike at Spur Cross or Black Mountain. Go horseback riding at MTM Ranch and see how beautiful the Arizona desert is. Rancho Manana Golf Course is one of the best in the Phoenix area, (my opinion) and only minutes away as is The Boulders, Dove Valley and many more golf destinations. There are so many great places to dine and dance! Go try the Buffalo Chip on Friday night and see live bull riding and enjoy live music. Harold's is across the parking lot and is a great place to eat, drink and dance. Shopping in Cave Creek and Carefree is fun and unique. Scottsdale shopping and restaurants are nearby for more fun! There are great hiking opportunities nearby as well on Black Mountain and Spur Cross Conservation Area.

Keywords: Great location with all the bells and whistles! Comfy, tasteful, and ready for fun on Black Mountain. Gourmet kitchen, split bedrooms, courtyard with fountain, large patio with gas BBQ and stunning views. Tasteful and comfortable furnishings, wood floors and travertine bathrooms. Jacuzzi and walk-in shower in master.

About Christine

I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. I love riding my horse and golfing every chance I get.

Christine purchased this house in 2005

Why Christine chose Cave Creek

I did not purchase my house with the intention of renting it. I moved to Cave Creek after wishing to for 14 years. I purchased this house while it was under construction and was able to upgrade it to the max, including custom cabinetry, wood floors, high end finishes, a courtyard and a fantastic solar heated pool. I put my stamp on it!

What makes this house unique

My house in Cave Creek is an awesome place to be. You can feel like you're far away but you're close enough! I LOVE spending time outside. The views are outstanding in all directions. It's a short walk or ride to town for fun, dining and shopping. It is great for hikers and bikers. Horseback riding is a short distance away. There are many golf courses within a short distance. The shopping in Cave Creek as well as Scottsdale is great. The interior is as lovely as the exterior. I have tried to think of everything for your comfort including great linens, quality beds and bedding, soft water, luxurious master bathroom, and quality comfortable furnishings. I take great pride in my property. I just know you'll love it! Please call or email me. I don't do online reservations.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this property for the past two years and have rebooked again for this year. We would agree that Christine is a wonderful hostess! And frankly, the other reviews are very accurate. This is a perfect location for us halfway between our extended family and town (15-20 minute walk). Neat and clean with all the amenities. Comfortable bedding, and living space. Nice views from kitchen and pool area. Private fenced in yard.

I would add that the Cave Creek/Carefree area is not anything like the Scottsdale/Phoenix valley. It is a very eclectic blend of cowboy, artsy and affluent pockets too. From watching bull riding, art and craft galleries, great bars, many dining options and a michelin rated restaurant, horseback riding, aggressive hiking, shooting range, and golfing, there is always something to do. We've been vacationing here for about 10 years. It also saves about an hour of driving from the valley if you want to go to Sedona or Flagstaff or Grand Canyon.

WOW! What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Christine's place! The house is amazing - we felt so fortunate renting this vacation home! Christine was the ultimate hostess - everything we needed was right there. She made herself available when we had questions. The neighborhood was very green and lush - many nice trails for walking. There were humming birds everyday in the yard by the pool. The pool! So great! We spent lots of time swimming and hanging out in the pool area. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Close to Cave Creek, Carefree, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and not far from Sedona. We spent lots of time sightseeing, shopping and eating out at the many wonderful restaurants. We did cook in one night for dinner--everything we needed for the kitchen, and grilling was right there! So wonderful! We would like to rent from her again when we go back to the Cave Creek area. We've been there 3 times now--and so far Christine's place was the BEST!

UK to Cave Creek 2013

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here in September 2013. Two weeks before we were due to leave the UK, our original vacation home fell through and to our delight we ended up in this VRBO in Cave Creek (one that had just come back on the site having been revamped). We were so fortunate. Christine could not have been more helpful at such short notice. Efficient, friendly, welcoming, you name it. Her home was beautiful. There was everything you needed, it was spotless, beds were really comfy, pool was fantastic and the location was stunning. On the day we left, Christine arrived to refund our deposit with no hesitation. The location to Cave Creek was certainly within walking distance (although for us from the "cold" UK it was still too far to walk in the heat). The Wagon Wheel that had been recommended to us was very welcoming and great for a breakfast. We had such fun here and would highly recommend Christine's home. We found Cave Creek to be a really friendly town and would not hesitate to recommend this home. Many thanks Christine and maybe one day we may be able to return.

Desert Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Sitting by the pool, taking in the wonderful view of Black Mountain and surrounding saguaro cactus, was truly everyone's favourite time of day. The accommodations were as depicted in the photos and everything was very clean and welcoming. The town of Cave Creek is just a short walk away. Lots of fun and interesting things to see, great restaurants.

Great house, great place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week and everything about it worked well for us. House is in perfect condition, very clean on arrival, with excellent furnishings and quality soft goods throughout. Kitchen had everything we could have possibly needed. Pool was clean and in great shape, with new chaise and chair cushions surrounding it. Nice grill under the ramada, which had an outdoor table as well as another couch/sitting area/ Close to town, which had great restaurants and other fun stuff and the Rancho Manana golf course was nearby and lots of fun to play (as well as reasonably priced).

Everything in the owner's description was accurate. She met us on arrival and departure, very easy working with her. We recommend this property with no qualifications. Thanks!
