About Albert Callie

We are a Tucson, Arizona family of 5 who fell in love with Rainbow Lake on a visit they first took in 2012. After spending a weekend in the fresh air and natural beauty of Pinetop, we knew they had to own a place where we could wake up each morning and see the sun glistening off the lake from the comfort of our own couch. We have spent the last 6 months transforming our lake house into our dream home and hope you enjoy staying here as much as we do. It is truly a special place to our family and we are always anxious to get back up to our beautiful home on the lake.

Albert Callie purchased this house in 2014

Why Albert Callie chose Pinetop-Lakeside

This is our absolute dream home and where we plan to retire to someday. The lake, the community, and the limitless outdoor activities available are unlike anywhere else in Arizona!

Great View. Great House. Great Time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time in Pinetop-Lakeside and that started the minute we got to this home. It was extremely clean, well-maintained and full of just about everything we would need while here. We took some of the ample supply of outside chairs out to the dock and watched the sun set each evening. One night during our stay it poured rain, so we sat on the covered patio facing the lake and listened to the rain. Our teenage daughter and her friend even had fun doing this.

Inside, there is a huge dining table which we used not only for meals but also for game playing. The room with the bunk beds is amazing for kids - it is a true hideaway from the rest of the house and is fully equipped with everything kids would need to have a great time on their own. The master is ample in size with an extremely large bathroom.

The home is in a gated community and is right on the lake. I went for a run around the neighborhood each day and it was great because there is little traffic and friendly neighbors. It is right in the heart of the town, just a few minutes from a number of restaurants, Safeway, etc.

In terms of supplies, there are plenty of towels, a kitchen stocked with plates, pans, pots, glasses, you name it. And they are in much better shape than you often find elsewhere. The only downside is there is no garage, but there was plenty of parking in a small circular driveway so that really was of little concern.

Overall, great place. Helpful, friendly owners. Very simple process. I would highly recommend!

Great Private Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin! Very spacious, clean and fun layout. It was great having the canoe and kayaks to explore around the lake and fish. Would definitely stay again. Owners were very kind and accommodating.

This house surpassed our expectations. The owner was responsive and friendly, the caretaker was helpful, and the house itself was wonderful. We woke up every morning and ended every evening to fabulous lake views, and the kids spent our whole stay on the 2 kayaks and canoe that the owner is kind enough to let renters use and fishing off the dock. Thank you!

Relaxing at the lake house

  • 4 of 5

What a quiet and relaxing setting we enjoyed at the lake house. We loved the back deck and personal dock for fishing and kayak/canoe launching, the outdoor focus all day and into the evening for young and old in our group. Some fished, some played games, and some kayaked but all enjoyed just being there on Rainbow Lake; such a getaway from the hustle and bustle. We unwound and re-charged as we watched the sun each day set in the golden hues of the western sky. The spacious cabin provided plenty of room for our large group to gather for meals or games and also find a calm corner, as needed. The property was well stocked as described and well maintained with no issues during our stay and the caretaker only a quick call away. This property will stay on our list for a return visit.

Absolutely The Best Place To Have a Family Gathering For The Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Rainbow Lake on the Waterfront could not have been any better! The location was exquisite and the home was lovely, with many extra amenities that were wonderful surprises for us. Our reservations, contact with the owners, VRBO & HomeAway, and working with the property caretaker (Dobbs) was flawless and very family-friendly.

We had three families coming from three different states, and the owners made it so easy to arrange us to all arrive at similar times, and have plenty of room for our party of 9 (and one baby). The Bunkhouse addition (almost a separate apartment) with two sets of built-in double-bunks, a kitchen, bathroom, kitchen, TV and fireplace really made the perfect place for our niece & nephew and their 6th-month baby. They felt that they could be part of all the family activities, but could spend time with the baby, naps, & feedings in the privacy of the Bunkhouse.

The kitchen is gourmet-stocked and had everything we could possibly need. Appliances, dishes, refrigerator/freezer were all included in our stay. Because of two families flying in from other states, the ability to bring large amounts of needed supplies was difficult; however, the owners had everything available we could possibly need. We had 5-6 people helping with meals and with the open-concept kitchen, everyone could participate in activities throughout the entire house. It was extremely helpful that there was a dishwasher and two washers and dryers.

All large bay windows showed gorgeous views of the lake, animals, lush greenery and amazing sunrises and sunsets. The huge fireplace was a cozy area where the entire family could spend the evening sharing stories and catching up. The dining room table could easily seat 12 people, and the owners had

included a crib and high-chair if needed. Each bedroom had a cozy sofa area where you could sit, watch tv, read a book, or just rest in the peaceful home. The retreat has a aluminum canoe, as well as two new kayaks to go out on the lake. Life-Jackets, a nice dock, and a campfire area are also included on the property.

We would definitely suggest coming up to this property and spending as much time as you can. The atmosphere, house and lake made our vacation such a wonderful time. Our family would definitely come up here again!
