The Monument is home to an endangered species of Bighorn Sheep, and if you are lucky, you may spot one or more of these magnificent creatures.

I moved to the desert in 1985 and fell in love with the mountains and the wide-open spaces here, not to mention the unbeatable sunshine! This is the place I call home.
I have spent many years creating this place and am
delighted to have the opportunity to share it with you.
Dean Porter purchased this house in 1990
The location is unbeatable for quiet and a sense of security without having to go through gates. The extra large lot affords the space for an extensive garden to
relax in and wander through.
I have been in the area for over 25 yrs and
I can honestly say there is no neighborhood
that compares when it comes to seclusion,privacy and serenity! It is so quiet here I can listen to the birds sing every morning. Airplanes and highways are out of ears reach! The mountains are literally right out the door making hiking and exploring a real treat. Nothing like a soak in the spa/jacuzzi after a nice climb in the mountains.
I can't say enough about this little gem in the desert. I've stayed at Dean's place for 4 years every April now. Each year I'm so sad to have to leave.
The pool is beautiful and exquisitely maintained - always clean and the perfect temperature. It always becomes the focal point for our gatherings there with everybody hanging in and around the pool. There's also a beautiful yard with plenty of room for games and a hammock that's perfect for sitting back and soaking in just how lovely the property is. The rooms are spacious and clean offering both privacy and a communal feel. The kitchen and patio just outside of it also become popular hang outs for our friends.
Also, Dean is an excellent host. In fact, it feels funny to call him a host because at this point he totally just feels like a friend.
All I have to say is I will 110% be back next year and I'll basically be counting down the days until we can return. :)
We stayed there with our grown family, 3 kids with their spouses/fiancé, and our 9 month old grandson. The whole package with the house, 5 bedrooms, pool and hot tub and the beautiful yard were just right for our size of group. It isn't within walking distance of any restaurants or grocery stores, but being right on the edge of the city was very peaceful and a 10 min drive would get you anything that you needed, including to the airport. Enjoyed a great hike into the hills that started about a block from the house. Great views of the city and valley. We spent some days at the house and others at local attractions. Dean and Todd were great. Responded immediately when we plugged up the garburator. We mentioned to Todd that we were bringing a 9 month old. He went out and bought a new high chair that was perfect for our grandson. We stayed for 9 nights and really hated to leave. Everyone in the group said they would like to return.
We loved the house! We had six adults and three kids, and we had plenty of space. Children loved the pool. Took advantage of the amazing hiking outside the front door. The house had everything we needed, very clean and comfortable. We will be back!
Me and a group of girls recently stayed here for my sisters bachelorette party and our experience here was amazing. We never left the house except for maybe a store run but other than that everything we needed was provided. My sister (the bride) was very pleased in the house selection since she was not in control lol. We'll be talking about this for a long time I'm sure. Thank you so much Todd and Dean!
Our family vacationed Thanksgiving week in this beautiful space! The children loved the pool and yard. Hikes to look at the fruit trees and climb the hill to swing in the hammock were favorites. We had everything we needed to cook all our meals. Eating on the patio outside was a delight and the children could play while adults relaxed. The owners checked in to make sure we had everything we needed bringing a loaf of rustic Italian bread warm form the oven! You would not be disappointed by anything. A bonus is the beautiful original artwork throughout the home. Easy access to stores and family entertainment.
Where do I begin?!?! From the moment you walk in the door you can't believe your eyes! This place is absolutely amazing and SOOO huge.. Just when you think you've seen it all, there's more!! I mean we were blown away!!! From the wide array of spacious rooms to choose from to the stunning salt water pool...I can go on and on about this place! Definitely a must see/stay!!
We stayed here for the weekend for my best friends bachelorette and every single one of the girls LOVED the house! When we tried to go out for a night on the town all we wanted to do was come back to the pool and spa jacuzzi and thats exactly what we did! I was getting compliments all weekend long on my selection!
I have to thank Dean and Todd for lending us there AMAZING home for the weekend!! I was so lucky to find a house at an affordable rate with such wonderful owners! Communicating with them was such a breeze.. They are such a pleasure to work with and SOOO accommodating! I am already planning my next trip back! Thank you Dean and Todd!!
