Property Details

Updated: Sep 21, 2016
5 bed, 3.5 bath, sleeps 10

Casa Lucia sleeps up to 10 with Casita Michaela included for a total of 4 bedrooms and a queen sleeper in the Casita. Total of 3 1/2 baths . Our 2 acre private property includes mature orange, pink grapefruit trees. Imagine juicing fresh citrus picked right from the trees! We have newly planted lemon and Mandarin orange trees. We have Eucalyptus trees that line the pasture. And we have beautiful mountain views. Our property is fully fenced in with an electronic security gate at the driveway. We have RV parking. For those with horses, there is an acre pasture, 3 horse mare motel with automatic water. Our property is a unique vacation rental property because of its convenient location to all the amenities in the city, yet the best of quiet country living. Casa Lucia is warm and inviting and a very peaceful and quiet place to get away and relax. There is plenty of space to roam around and plenty of private space to enjoy the solitude. Numerous outdoor spaces to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets. We have entertained many friends from all over the world and all have loved staying at Casa Lucia for rest and relaxation. With the expansive back patio you can enjoy the morning sunrise as well as the beautiful Arizona sunsets in the evening.

About the Owner

We raised our daughter here. She grew up with horses and had the convenience of riding right out of our property to the mountain trails. After she married and moved away, we decided to downsize. We love our home and would rather have others enjoy it than to sell it.

A great country getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property about 3 weeks ago and it was wonderful. The owners of the property were just as great. We stayed for 3 nights and the home is wonderfully appointed. The property is well stocked with all the comforts of home. We barbecued every night to enjoy the outdoors and the hot tub was perfect for lounging. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, but we were just a short drive from Phoenix and Scottsdale. The house is beautiful, but we really loved the outside porch area. We sat there in the evenings, enjoying the sunsets. The beds were super comfy and it felt like our home away from home. My wife left behind some items and the owners promptly sent them with no issue. We will definitely be back

Beautiful rental that was comfortable, peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented through VRBO many times and this is one of the first rentals that exceeded our expectations. The property is immaculately kept up, is extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. The owner was responsive and accommodating and the process of securing the rental and checking out went very smoothly. Since everything was so well organized and perfect at the rental, we did not have any need to make any requests during our stay. I would recommend this property without hesitation.

Ranch resort living equals perfect rest and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (total of 8) was completely impressed with Casa Lucita - 5 out of 5 stars, for sure! Although the pictures and description of this amazing property are accurate, they do not come close to communicating how the cozy layout, meticulous landscaping, spacious grounds, and high end finishings combine to create an idyllic environment to truly rest and recover. The kitchen is more than adequately stocked with all the essentials, to include an assortment of Starbucks coffee to get you started in the right direction the first morning after arriving. The bedrooms, to include the adorable Casita, have comfortable, hotel style pillow top mattresses that absorb your tired muscles, giving you some serious deep sleep after full days of family fun. The home itself is perfect for entertaining too, with a generally open floor plan that has the kitchen spill into the family room, which opens to an outdoor living space that more than doubles seating and eating areas. Our kids (9, 6, and 4) were in and out of the hot tub about every 30 minutes - withhold your bad parenting opinions, please - with the remaining balance of the time spent running around in the pasture, playing with the neighbor's goat, exploring the horse stables, and walking with the family to the local General Store for ice cream. My wife and I were slightly concerned about our little ones' safety with how much space they had to roam, but our minds were put at ease the moment we arrived and walked the completely enclosed property. The only negative of the property and our experience was that the pool was not heated. This barely impacted the family, other than the kids saying on day 1: "I wished the pool was warmer." Of all our family vacations over the years, this was by far the best, which was primarily due to having such an amazing house to be our home away from home.

Perfect Place for our Christmas Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Every Christmas we gather in AZ to spend time with my grandparents and with our growing family this is getting harder to find accommodations that work well.This place was perfect! There are three bedrooms in the main house and then another casita out back that has the fourth room and a living room. At first we didn't realize this was the set-up and we were kind of bummed to be separated. Little did we know this was the best thing for our family. We had a place to nap kids and put them to bed early without having to tell the rest of the family to keep quiet.

The living space in the house was really practical. There is a very comfortable living room where we gathered most of the time, a formal dining room where our coloring projects were set up and then a kitchen with a breakfast nook and a smaller dining room table. This fit us well as we could seat many people for meals because as always when you have a meal everyone ends up in the kitchen. This kitchen was beautiful and well stocked and it allowed a lot of people to be in and around the island as food was being prepared. We hosted our extended family for a couple of meals and were able feel very comfortable hanging out at this house.

The backyard is nice and relaxing, if the AZ weather would have agreed more with us then we would have been out there more. We were able to use the comfy hot tub for adults and as it was cooling down we allowed the kids to join in on the fun. The backyard was spacious and we could play games with our kids out back so they could run off energy. When the adults needed exercise we would just go running through the neighborhood enjoying looking at all the horse properties.

Working with Lucy was fantastic. She was very accommodating and responded promptly to my texts and emails. We had a few questions while we were there and she was quick to help us figure out a solution. The whole family really loved this place and the flexibility it gave us. I would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks for the treat stay!!
