Escape to a Luxury Desert Paradise at The Full Circle Ranch

A Rustic Resort w/Private Pool & Hot Tub

Just north of Phoenix in Cave Creek, AZ

6 bedroom · 6.5 bath · Up to 12 Guests

Spend your Arizona vacation in Cave Creek and let Full Circle Ranch be your one-of-a-kind retreat in the desert. Located in the middle of the only living desert in the world, the Sonoran Desert. Its unsurpassed raw beauty will take your breath away with its one of a kind flora and fauna. Experience Arizona as it was meant to be!

Full Circle Ranch is nestled into one of the most scenic areas of the beautiful Sonoran Desert, 15 minutes from the quaint cowboy town of Cave Creek, Arizona. Tucked into a canyon bordered by desert mountains, including Apache Peak, Elephant Mountain Butte, and Saddle Mountain, far enough from city lights for you to experience the night sky as perhaps you never have. 40 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, but worlds away from the hustle and bustle. Here, you will experience nature as it's existed for millions of years. You'll see quail, cottontails, coyotes, jack rabbits, road runners, javalina, and mule close. And always, the whinny of horses.

For most guests, simply gazing into the desert mountains – spiked and dotted with saguaro cactus and flowering ocotillo, creates a sense of well-being and rejuvenation. This property offers guests a secluded atmosphere for kicking back, relaxing poolside, reading in the shade of the ramada, or simply listening to the quiet. Yes, you can hear the quiet. A short distance from the ranch, the towns of Cave Creek, Carefree, and Scottsdale are guaranteed to provide you with things to do, see, and buy. Restaurants of every description are within 15 minutes of the Ranch.

Our family fell in love with the “Valley of the Sun” years go. As Minnesota natives, we have enjoyed visiting Arizona as a break from our cold and snowy winters. Cave Creek has long been our favorite destination. Located just a short drive from everything Phoenix and Scottsdale has to offer, but yet it is worlds away. When we first saw Full Circle Ranch, we knew this was the place we would call home. With a desire to share the beauty of the desert with others, The Ranch was the perfect way to do it.

Operated as a Bed & Breakfast for many years, hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people have enjoyed the experience of staying and relaxing at Full Circle Ranch. A quick online search will reveal numerous 5-star reviews across many of the travel sites. Since purchasing the home in 2019, we have converted The Ranch to a short-term vacation rental. Now you can have the entire property all to yourself! We have considered every detail during the renovation while we have updated every room. Full Circle is the perfect getaway for a large family, several couples, or a corporate retreat.

So, come, relax, be our guest. You’ll be glad you did. We’ll see to it.


"We had a wonderful visit! Full Circle Ranch is a gorgeous property in a beautiful desert setting. We enjoyed being in such a relaxing location in the midst of urban Phoenix. We would love to return some day!"

"See you next year. Everything was perfect. Can't wait 😄"

- Carly and Matt E

"We loved this place. Peace and quiet in the desert with a pool and hot tub. The first night we just sat out by the "pond" and listened to the birds and breathed in the atmosphere until way after dark. And the frogs in the desert no less! Hummingbirds and quail right in the yard. We wanted to go on a horse ride and they set us up for a private ride with Christine down the road which lasted for 2.5 hours even though we only paid for 1. Can't say too much wonderful stuff about this place."
