"Pictures do not do this house justice. It is beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and conveniently located. It is close to Walmart, a grocery store and many casual dining restaurants. We enjoyed walking and riding our bikes on the nicely maintained paths throughout the neighborhood. We relaxed in the beautiful pool in the afternoons. We really appreciate the fact that it is pet friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will hopefully go back sometime. Thank you for sharing your home."

"Casa Elena is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and impeccably maintained. From the moment we drove into the palm and eucalyptus tree-lined streets of Verrado, we knew we were in a special place. The community itself features sidewalks, parks, hiking trails and a quaint and picturesque Main Street area complete with restaurants, a grocery store, spa, fitness center and more. We have found nothing like this in any other part of Phoenix! We can highly recommend the Verrado Grill patio for it's lovely view of the Raven Golf course. We also enjoyed pizza at Grazie and a great dinner at the Tempo Urban Bistro.
As for Casa Elena, it is completely true to the pictures and description, though better in person! The pool area is beautiful and we ate dinner out there frequently. The house is nicely designed so that the master suite is in one end of the house and the other two bedrooms are down a hall at the other end; maximum privacy for all. The kitchen is well-equipped with all you might need for cooking. The decor is lovely throughout the house and outdoor areas. This house is truly a gem, you will not be disappointed!"

"We have been renting in the Phoenix area for some time and this home, by far, is the nicest we have stayed in. Lorraine and Tim have described it just as it is-truly a Desert Paradise. The house was immaculate and very well maintained. We wanted for nothing as the kitchen is fully supplied with all our needs for cooking. The pool, spa and view from the patio are incredible and the sun rises are spectacular. The beds were extremely comfortable and the fact that the master suite is on the other side of the house from the other bedrooms made it very private when we had guests. Tim was quick to respond to my questions when I felt it necessary to call. His direction book is very explicit as to how to operate everything in the house. We already have a reservation for next year and would highly recommend this home to other snowbirds."

"We vacationed here with 2 other adult couples and the place was wonderful! The home itself is well stocked and had everything that we needed. We used the outdoor kitchen, hot tub and patio areas everyday and every evening. Watching the stars from the hot tub was awesome. We were able to walk or ride the bicycles to the pool, gym and to the trail head for hiking in the mountains. Verrado is a town within a town, everyone we met was so friendly and it is such a well thought out concept. We were even able to take in the Founder's Day events and concert while we were there. It was so convenient to have a full grocery store (Basha's) just a short walk away for anything we needed. They have an amazing deli and we bought fantastic sandwiches to take on our picnic to Lake Pleasant. The Verrado Grill has a wonderful happy hour and is a great place to sit outdoors and watch the sunset. We took in a couple of spring training baseball games and even went to the Grand Canyon. Henry was very easy to work with and he was so quick to get back to us with answers to our questions. We would not hesitate to recommend this home or community. My husband and I love this part of Arizona; we enjoy the outdoors, biking, hiking and appreciate the beauty of creation - this was the perfect place, it exceeded all of our expectations. This is our third spring-time trip to the Phoenix area and we would definitely return to Verrado again."
