This attractive, roomy two-story home overlooks a lovely man-made lake. Spacious, uncluttered rooms with high ceilings and unique decor with a southwestern flavor. Large windows throughout the house bring in the light and enhance the openness of the home's design.
As hosts, we supply the home with clean bed and bath linens and swim towels, along with dishes, cooking utensils, appliances and more for cooking and dining-in. We provide dish soap, laundry soap, liquid hand soap, small shampoos, toilet paper, and paper towels for your use. Please provide your own toiletries.
We also keep some basic spices and condiments on hand (dates are checked regularly). Bring or purchase whatever food and drinks you plan to consume during your stay. There are Safeway, Sprouts, Albertson's, and Fry's grocery stores close by. Bulk stores, such as Costco, Sam's Club and Winco, are also close; find directions on your GPS or call us.
Panoramic Wifi provides excellent internet coverage throughout the house, and allows for catching up on work or email, gaming, and chatting with friends or family who weren't lucky enough to come along.
Massive Master Bedroom Suite with King-size bed, balcony, sitting room with flat-screen TV, huge bathroom with walk-in shower and soaking tub, and walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms include two queen beds and a double bed, to provide comfortable sleeping room for eight guests in four bedrooms. Main floor bedroom with queen bed and private TV also has its own bathroom; the two other bedrooms share an ample bathroom with tub & shower, two sinks and plenty of counter space.
Morningside backyard includes access to the lake (non-swimming), four-season, heatable pool and spa, comfortable covered patio with furniture for eating or lounging, large barbecue grill (gas), and space to soak up some Arizona sunshine. NOTE: Be sure to let us know if you want the pool and spa heated. (See details below.)
When you've had enough sun, step inside to air-conditioned comfort; or turn on the heat to chase away a mid-winter chill in the night air. The patio and all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans.
You'll feel the welcome in the inviting living/dining room combination, plus a sprawling great room. Enjoy a large, well-equipped kitchen area with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, gas cooktop, lots of work space, and a beautifully unique copper-top kitchen table. The great room includes a pool table and large curved-screen TV with internet connectivity and numerous stations, so you can watch your favorite programs. (The bedroom TVs are also flat-screen, with internet and cable.) Use Pay-per-view at your own expense, please.
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood in the midst of the Ocotillo development, you can golf the nearby courses. Use the paddle boat to fish in the lake (catch & release only), or just to paddle around and feel the pleasure of nature and blue sky.
This home is situated right off of both Alma School Road and Ocotillo Road. There are many nice restaurants and plenty of shopping close by. For convenience, comfort, amenities and access, you've found the perfect spot for your vacation!
NOTE: There is a $200 fee to heat the pool and spa during the winter season, when the days are lovely but the nights are too cool for the water to stay warm. The fee covers up to a week. Each subsequent week requires an additional $200. We apologize for this, but it's a necessary factor to swim in the desert in winter -- and well worth it!
PLEASE NOTE NEW POLICY: Beginning October 22, 2018, we will take the cost of towel replacement from the damage deposit if towels are ruined during your stay. We apologize for this, but this is a home, not a hotel. Due to continual damage to white towels, we find we must make our policy more strict. We keep paper towels and plenty of old towels on hand to wipe spills or floors, and black makeup cloths to remove makeup. The old towels for spills and cleanup can be found in the bathrooms under the sinks, and in the laundry room. Thank you for your understanding and for taking care of our home as our guests.Get the full listing »
