Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!
