The best way to summarize our experience? Ridiculous.

  • 1 of 5

The home was beautiful as described, but dealing with the owner was a nightmare. Our stay was interrupted two days in when we were kicked out for refusing to sign an absurd paper contract containing several terms that would be illegal in the state of Arizona. Other terms of the contract were hand-written in the margins. Later, my deposit was withheld for a $300 repair to an oven door amid a plethora of other outrageous allegations—some of which, we were told, were reported by neighbors who had been spying on us? Creepy. We were also accused of leaving dog poop in the driveway. We don’t even have a dog. Ridiculous. Thankfully, my bank fully refunded me for the deposit and the time we were shorted.

Peaceful, comfortable home in the pines just like its shown.

  • 5 of 5

We especially enjoyed the back patio area to set out and watch the monsoons roll in over the mountains, listen to birds, and dinners outside . The home was very clean and offered everything we needed.

Pretty location, interesting decor, lack of air movement a challenge in summer.

  • 3 of 5

This was a perfectly fine house with very nice landscaping. Unfortunately, there was no provision for cooling the house in the Arizona summer. Ceiling fans, a swamp cooler, or even more floor fans would have been a nice touch. Probably awesome in winter or fall but we were uncomfortable in June.

Also, the house is constructed in such a way that two of the bedrooms can't avoid every noise from the main bathroom. If you are sensitive to such things you should sleep in the bedrooms away from the bathroom.

The host was very nice and the house rules were easy to follow.

Owner's Response: This home does have an excellent state of the art portable air conditioner. It cools the entire upstairs of the home, in addition the upstairs bedrooms have ceiling fans that move air for additional comfort. Downstairs, the home is built into the hill and stays cool. Windows all have blinds that can be closed on the east side of the home to block sun, evenings are always cool in Prescott, elevation here is 5200. However, I do appreciate the guests comment and we did have an unusually warm Spring in Arizona this year, reaching record temperatures in Phoenix.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my brother's celebration of life and thought it would be nice for our family to stay together in a house rather than a hotel. It was more than nice! This home is beautiful, comfortable and there was plenty of parking. We were all coming from different directions and at different times so we needed the parking space. Everything works great, was super clean and is quite spacious. We would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful, cozy home

This was a very cozy home with lots of great outdoor spaces to enjoy the forest. Close to town but you almost feel you are on a private road. Had a wonderful stay with family.
