    Through the front door, sleek hardwoods floors, dark wood and plush leather furnishings fill the open-concept living area. Golden walls and honey hardwood flooring are warmly lit by overhead light fixtures that extend to a wood-beam vaulted ceiling.

    Making meals is a breeze in the spacious, fully equipped kitchen, with room for several helping hands and an eat-at breakfast counter with barstool seating for 3.

    Enjoy dinners together at the adjacent wood dining room table beneath a glowing chandelier.

    You can host an epic family movie night gathered on the leather couch and 2 recliners, with the latest film playing on the 55-inch flat screen Sony TV, equipped with DirecTV.

    Three bedrooms provide comfortable king and queen-sized mattresses for much-needed sleep after days of exploration. In the master bedroom, fall asleep by the warmth of the fireplace while looking out your window to starry skies.

    Two bathrooms have bath/shower combos, tile floors and spacious stone vanities. In-unit laundry machines are available for your convenience, with complimentary detergent provided.

    Look out to the mountains from the deck or let your pets roam the stone-laid path in the backyard. Away from city lights, you will enjoy the clear skies while standing out on the lush, open property and unwinding on the outdoor deck.

    Family and dog friendly home in the mountains

    Reviewed by: A Verified Guest on


    We have rented this home several times and have not been disappointed. Our first stay was late summer and we returned for the Thanksgiving holiday with our larger family. The home easily handled 6 adults and a toddler plus 2 small dogs. The living space is large with a dining area attached to the open kitchen. There are two small sunrooms that add space if needed. The only drawback is the full-size bed in the third bedroom would be more comfortable if it was a queen. The other bedroom has a queen and the master has a king. There’s a very small fenced in area that isn’t very functional. Extending the fence to include some of the grassy area would help with taking dogs outside. The large garage and no stairs are a big plus when renting a mountain house.

    Manager's Response:
    Ed, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your trip! We are happy to hear that you overall enjoyed your stay, and want to let you know that the homeowner made some changes based on your feedback. A new water softener has been installed, and food storage containers for the kitchen have been replaced. The sun-room furniture has been temporarily removed due to the replacement of the skylights, but will be set up again in the spring! Thank you again for your review!

    Nice place, well organized, very comfortable

    Good location if you like Alto, basically between the Alto course and Outlaw course. House was clean and easy to manage without having to work at it. Can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there. Larger unit and smaller unit are connected and share a front porch but, other than that, it's plenty private as there aren't any common walls inside the units. We would go back.

    Good Home for Us and Our Four Legged Family Member

    Reviewed by: Kathy J. on


    Thank you for letting us bring our four legged Family member for a month. He loved your enclosed backyard and his long walks around the Outlaw Golf Course. You were so right when you told us your home is very comfortable. My husband loved his recliner, especially when watching all the golf tournaments and sports on Direct TV. We are Alto Members and being so close to both golf courses was so convenient. We have rented vacation homes for the last 5 years and the master bedroom bed was the most comfortable bed of all the homes we have rented. We eat at home a lot and kitchen met our needs. We loved location so much we just rented Casita here for a week. Thanks again for use of home!

    Great Location to Alto Golf Courses

    Reviewed by: JJ on


    Thank you for letting us bring our four-legged family member. It was great to have an enclosed backyard for him. The location of the home was very close to the Outlaw golf course so we got lots of exercise walking around the course with our dog. We are Alto members and the home was very convenient to both Alto and Outlaw golf courses. We have rented vacation homes for over 5 years and the mattress in the master bedroom was the most comfortable of all the beds in other homes. Some of the vacation rentals in the past have not had good sports channels, but this home had Directv and we were able to watch any sports channel we wanted. We enjoyed stretching out in the recliners in the living room and just relaxing. We also cook most of our own meals and the kitchen met all our needs. We have rented the casita that is part of the property in July and we are really looking forward to more time in the mountains. Thanks, Kenneth

    Great property and well managed - your stay at this property will not disappoint.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and no-hassle check-in/check-out. Brought a Family of 5 with dog and two cars and had an active but relaxed vacay over spring break - excellent proximity to Ski Apache and local attractions in a gated community. We made full use of garage, grill and well-outfitted kitchen (with high-end gas range) and had instant access to all the comforts of home, including Alexa, WIFI and home theater. The bed and pillows in the master BR were heavenly and provided excellent night?s sleep. Great property and well managed - your stay at this property will not disappoint.

    Only downside was when we went to use the grill it was filthy. We had to clean to even use.
