Excellent house while visiting Phoenix
Excellent house while visiting Phoenix
This is my second home I have rented via VRBO and I would rate this home as the type of stay that the other homes should strive to meet. I can not think of anything that I needed while staying there. The location is very close to 17 and there is a Costco and Super Walmart several miles away. I loved that fact that the rental is pet friendly. I would return in a heart beat.

We really enjoy this place. It fits our needs perfectly. Our dogs love the back yard which has plenty of shade. The house is kept very nice and all the details are taken care of. The location is great, and it is easy to access the highway system or the llight rail.

Owner response: Geoff and Donna are repeat guests...a joy to host and wonderful people to meet. With three loving 'fur' children in tow, they have blessed me with their company once again. I look forward to seeing Geoff and Donna again next season. Kindest regards, Edward
A beautiful house!
A beautiful house!
Great location near Highway 17 and not far to drive downtown. Groceries close by as well as drug stores etc..... Great for the Spring Training ballparks on the west side of 17. Minor quibbles would be the lack of a coffee table in the TV area and the mattress in the main bedroom(with en suite bathroom), could be updated. It's very clean and attractively furnished. Very comftable.

Our group unanimously thought the house was beautiful, and enjoyed the stay. Altho in an older area, its a good central location, with easy highway access. We had to drive to find restaurants, as there were few in the direct area, and they were mostly fast foods. The owner was immediately accessible by cell once we were in the house. The house instructions were a bit confusing, and should be straightened out, but we were able to call the owner. The sitting areas, bedrooms, and baths were spacious, new, and terrific, and the TV and internets were immediately accessible. The price is good, and we would stay there again.

We traveled to Phoenix in order for my wife to undergo major back surgery and we were very fortunate to find this wonderful home. It is located in an established and quiet neighborhood and very convenient to stores, restaurants, and malls. The home is very nicely appointed and the furnishings are quite comfortable including an office area with computer and internet access which enabled me to work remotely during our stay. This place provided a very quiet and peaceful setting for my wife to recover from her surgery and is very well stocked with virtually everything we needed for cooking, laundry, etc. The owner of this home is terrific he kept in close communication with us from the time of our initial inquiry to the moment we walked out the door for home. We only experienced one minor issue with the television cable upon arrival and the owner immediately corrected the problem despite the need to make several phone calls to the cable provider over a couple of days time. I would highly recommend that anyone travelling to Phoenix for medical reasons, or any reason really, to consider this beautiful and cozy home. I researched many, many properties, hotels, and resorts prior to our trip and this home is an exceptional choice compared to most of them in this price range. When our travels take us back to the Phoenix area our only hope is that it is available to enjoy once again! Thanks Edward!

Terrific home, central valley location
Terrific home, central valley location
We spent February and March at this terrific home. It has been beautifully remodeled and tastefully decorated with many high end features. The photos can't really do it justice! The owner has provided many amenities not usually seen in vacation rentals at this price point. When we experienced a completely unforeseeable plumbing problem, he was immediately responsive. The neighborhood is established, quiet, well kept. We enjoyed relaxing and grilling on the sunny deck. We travel with our small dog and the securely walled back yard was great for her. We also walked to the neighborhood park, only a couple blocks away, for some exercise on grass - appreciated by a dog from the midwest- most days. The home is located centrally in the valley with easy access to I-17 nearby. We found we could get to most baseball Spring Training facilities in the area in 30 - 45 minutes, even by surface roads. We also took the light rail, only about 5 minutes from the house, downtown for an event and found it very easy to use. Wal-Mart, Target, Fry's and Fresh and Easy groceries are 5 minutes away,too. (If you don't already have one, get a Fry's shoppers card at their service desk - it will save you a lot.) We highly recommend this rental and would love to stay again!

Owner response: I met Dale and Phyllis at my property and truely enjoyed having them in my home. They took great care of everything and are genuinely wonderful people. I look forward to hosting them again. Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback.
Highly recommend this property. Owner has invested heavily in upgrading the internals of the house. Very nice furnishings. My aunt and I stayed here for 5 days and were very pleased with the accommodations and would stay here again. Very convenient to I17, yet the neighborhood was very quiet with a park within walking distance. Owner was very responsive to a couple glitches out of his control and had them remedied quickly. The two bedroom / 2 bath setup will work for either two couples or singles. Having internet access plus a copier/printer there was a real plus as I was working remote during my stay. The fresh flowers was a nice touch. My aunt really appreciated those. A definite thumbs up.

Closest public golf course. Built in 1935, located in the core of the Historic District, Encanto is the third oldest golf course in Arizona. It sports a relaxed atmosphere enhanced by the course's abundance of mature palm and salt cedar trees, plus some truly spectacular views of downtown Phoenix. William P. Bell designed both the traditional 18-hole championship course and the executive 9-hole course, which is just a block away. Encanto is ideally suited for the average golfer.
