Welcome to Araminta House

We welcome you to experience the Sonoran Desert at Araminta House, located just where north Phoenix, Scottsdale and Cave Creek meet.
“We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Araminta House. It was the perfect starting point for exploring North Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Cave Creek and Carefree. From hiking to dining and shopping, we couldn’t have asked for a better location. The home itself is at the top end of what either of us has experienced, with a backyard that beats most resort experiences.” Sandra
