About the Owner

Your hosts, Rick & Carol, are committed to your relaxation and comfort.

'I had the great privelege of ending my work year in the valley every December from 2001 until 2009 and literally fell in love with the desert. Deciding to buy our second home was a natural, easy decision and we couldn't be happier.'

'The desert is full of beauty, adventure, things to do, and fabulous people. Rugged mountian hikes, glorious post-card-like scenic golf courses, world class shopping, a sports enthusiasts dream, or a travelars oasis, along with an unending list of soul satisfying things await..'

'You can be as active or as relaxed as you like. If you love the heat as we do, then come for a visit in the middle of's absolutely wonderful.'

'We hope you'll feel as relaxed and rejuvenated as we do after spending time in the desert. Our home is VERY comfortable and we'll do all we can to make it perfect for you.

Please don't hesitate to call us so we can discuss any specific needs you may have.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rick and Carol...

We had a great time, the house was great, it sure is peaceful there and the neighbors are friendly (just like being at home).

We will recommend your house to anyone we hear of that is looking for a place to stay down there and there is a good chance we will be back, I loved the spring training games.

Thanks for letting us stay.

No pool heat and no propane = DISAPOINTMENT

  • 2 of 5

The pool was not usable because the water was so cold. We requested pool heat but were told none was available. Invited some friends over for dinner one night. Went to light the BBQ but there was no propane. They also have a propane table so we tried that tank but it was also empty. Very inconvenient to drop everything and run out for propane. Sent owners an email telling them this. Thought they might add the $26 onto our dd refund but instead they charged us an additional $15 to use their PayPal refund!! Nice house but we won't be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, our very first negative comment we've ever had and we're completely surpised. I see there's no mention of the complimentary guest basket we had delivered for you to enjoy. Not sure about the propane tanks, but both the BBQ and the Fire Pit were full, we used them ourselves when we arrived shortly after you left. Our Hot Tub is kept at a constant 102F and our guests, who return year after year after year, use our pool all twelve (12) months as do we. Our House Book, located in the family room, outlines the easy solutions for all your concerns ( who to call, where to get refills, homw to use the Hot Tuib, etc) as did our rental contract. Sorry you didn't read either, but everythng was outlined deliberately. Hopefully next time we can do even more to make you feel at home... R & C

The Perfect vacation stay for our family

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Carol and Rick for letting us enjoy their beautiful home. My family could not have been happier. We spent the most relaxing week in the Estrella Mountains. We could not have asked for better accommodations. The hospitality that was provided was more than we could have wished for. Thank you again for providing us terrific family memories and a wonderful week.

From the Owner

Estrella is an absolutely beautiful place to spend time. The resort feel of this community makes leaving almost impossible. Like us, you'll feel rested, relaxed, and recharged... We LOVE all the Golf, the Baseball, the world class Shopping close by, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains. Mostly though, we just love the laid back, relaxed feeling we get from the area.
