Spectacular Panoramic Phoenix Valley Views and Desert Mountain Hiking /bicycling

Romantic vacation home in Laveen
This property is located on the mountain preserve border of South Mountain Park, the largest city park in the world. There are wonderful mountain bike trails right from the property, as well as some of the finest hiking in the Phoenix area. While being only a few minutes from Downtown Phoenix, it is very private and quiet, nestled in a scenic desert mountain bowl with coyote and javelina occasionally visiting the site.

There are multilevel decks facing both toward South Mountain and Downtown Phoenix, providing some of the best panoramic scenery in the Phoenix area. If you are looking for quiet time to catch up on reading, fantastic hiking right from the property, and scenic desert vistas, this is the vacation house for you.

In the summer months (June, July and August) the water runs warm as the distance it travels underground up the mountain is great. You must run the water quite a while to get it to cool down. Due to the remote location, wifi is satellite only and VERY SLOW, which is not good for video streaming or working from home.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Great view
We enjoyed our stay at Laveen village. Beautiful views, walking trail, seen and/or heard wild boars, coyotes, quails. Pamela was an excellent host, always communicated with us and very easy instructions. The house was great with 3 different decks for views of the mountains or city, wild life. It seems like your out in the middle of no where but actually only 5-10min from Walmart or Dunkin. It's the perfect location, best if both worlds. We would definitely stay again when visiting in Phoenix again.

4/5 Good

Unique Desert Mountain Experience
This is gem. Private, quiet and immersed in nature. Coyotes respectfully pass within 30 feet of the house. Mornings were greeted under the stars by the hoot of owls. While there, I flushed a large one out of the ravine during a walk. Quail bobble and cackle everywhere. The trails are right out your back door! So, if you love being outdoors this is for you. The night views towards Phoenix are beautiful...and the expansive valley gives one pause to think about the weight of our footprint... Groceries and many services 10 minutes...entertainment, well prepare to travel 30+ minutes, or plan for day trips. The home itself it very spacious and worked well for my husband and I and our dogs for the month of January. It was surface cleaned and we felt comfortable and safe enough, however, a deep cleaning, especially the brown couch set would be very beneficial, and the upper south facing deck is in need of repair. Lounge chairs for winter sun soakers and some fun entertainment dishware would be a great addition! If you're in need of fast internet, this location is not for you. The current Hughs Net package does not provide the streaming or upload speed you will need, but Pam tells you that going in. She's wonderful by the way! We would definitely stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Loved the views, the remoteness and the trails
What a wonderful home! We went to Phoenix for spring training which was cancelled the day we arrived. Pamela's home was the perfect place to stay for two weeks since we were able to take advantage of the nearby hiking trails. The home is very well equipped with everything we needed and it was perfect for our dog. We hope to rent this house next year. Thanks Pamela!

3/5 Okay

Great view, rural location.
We'd give this property a better overall rating had it been clean. It's in need of new, clean furniture and a very thorough cleaning. Other than that we loved the location, the access to hiking, the amazing city view and the desert feel. Owner was friendly and responded quickly to two small issues.

5/5 Excellent

This is a fantastic property for a secluded quiet getaway in the heart of Phoenix. Direct access to Arizona outdoors and hiking and plenty of privacy. We enjoyed not having any passing cars or sirens wailing in the distance, very peaceful location. Also enjoyed the wildlife as we observed lots of quail and coyotes from the front porch.
