About Wes or Verla Dockter

My husband and I have been married over 40 years, proud parents to 2 children that have blessed us with 4 grandchildren. We love to travel and purchased a home in this lovely area in 2006. Our grandchildren call it our camper house. Now in 2014 we have purchased the home next to our 'camper House'. We have stayed in Vacation Rentals and have tried to include the things we have liked most into this vacation rental. If not let us know what we can improve on.

Wes or Verla Dockter purchased this house in 2014

Cute Cabin, Teenage and Dog approved!

  • 5 of 5

This tucked away gem is located a short walk away from the Verde River. The home is rustic and comfortable. The kitchen is definitely not large but hey we did not come up here to hang out in the kitchen! My teenagers LOVED the downstairs game area. They spent most of their time there playing pool, pinball (don't forget to bring dimes!) and watching TV when we were not outside. It was great to see them unplugged from their electronics and spending time together laughing and having a good time. The outdoor area was a really big hit with our family, especially our dogs. The fully fenced yard was wonderful allowing our dogs to explore every square inch of the property without us having to worry that they would wander off and get lost. We went exploring on the trails nearby and were greeted by deer along the way. The neighbors are really friendly and the owners are amazing! Thank you for the tomatoes Verla, we loved them! Though not on our property, the Hot Tub was a hit, we did not have a chance to enjoy the sauna. We definitely will be back!

Serene, magical, amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything is setup perfectly. There is so much to do, within the fenced yard or outside of it. Leaving is the hardest part of the trip.

We planned on hiking, paddle boat, enjoying the game room during the day and relaxing with the fire pit and jacuzzi in the evening. Come to find out we should have stayed a month, because sitting out back listening to the breeze blow through the tall pines, makes you not want to move. The starlights were bright and glistening. Very relaxing, Pure paradise.

The owner's are very hospitable and some of the nicest people you'll meet in Arizona.

We started planning our next stay there before we even left.

Definitely will stay again and highly recommend it to ALL!!

Must Read Review

  • 5 of 5

Okay so ideally I wanted to leave only 1 star but not for the reasons you think. I don't want anybody to know about this hidden Payson Gem. If you want rest, relaxation and a place to enjoy family time look no further. This place has it all for all ages and the owners were extremely helpful and friendly with every part of our stay. It isn't the grand things that make this ideal it is the subtle little things that make this place Heaven. Don't bother looking any further for something else, this is it, and you won't be disappointed. Book now don't wait for the schedule to fill up and miss out on this great property.

Wonderful little getaway destination!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the Holiday Hideaway. Its peaceful and tucked away, yet close enough to amenities for convenience. I would recommend this place.

The game room is great! One drawback was that the vintage pinball machine is temperamental and stopped working shortly after we arrived and started playing it. Just be careful not to "tilt" it too much or it shuts down.

The owners are very accommodating and reply quickly which is nice.
