It was a fabulous return to Ashley's rental home after our absence for a couple of years. Everything is still in a perfect state of excellence. The interior exterior, and especially the pool area are as always very well maintained. Plenty of towels, everything mechanical works, soaps, detergents, a float, chaises, beds, kitchenware, etc are all great. There are absolutely no issues with this rental at all. Great location to get to a spring training game, a regular season game, two shows, restaurants, our niece in Chandler, food store, Papago Park, zoo, Botanical Gardens, ASU, etc. Just a perfect week and we are hoping to do it again in 2017.

Great place to stay in Tempe

  • 4 of 5

We came to Tempe to attend an Anniversary party for a family member and we had a great time. We had 4 adults staying and we all had plenty of room. The kitchen was stocked with almost everything we needed. There is a grocery and drug store near by if you need to pick up anything they don't have or you forgot. Loved it! Would stay again and I would recommend it!

Had a comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good time in this home which had spacious living/family rooms with nice furniture and outdoor BBQ area. It also had heated swimming pool which our grand kids enjoyed many times during our stay in December time. The location was in a very quiet area and very convenient for shopping, sight seeing, and almost everything we needed. Some of the problems, if I should raise, would be the washing machine which was rather small and old, and also the kitchen equipment was little old (but of course worked well). I found and reported a little problem with a coffee maker Ashley's reaction was very quick and she immediately replaced it. Overall, our stay there for two weeks was very comfortable and enjoyable.

Birthday @ Villa Sol

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sol is a beautiful private home with a great pool! After problems finding my email with my check-in information, the owners were great about texting me the information needed to find the house and get in quickly. They were so friendly and patient with every question I had in the 3 months prior to right up to our visit. When we arrived (my dad & stepmom, my friend and myself) went right in and checked out the house before going anywhere else. It's so cozy and private. It is so close to shopping, the U of AZ district which has great shops & restaurants, old Scottsdale, Phoenix, etc. We are from the Seattle/Tacoma area, so when we left on a horribly blustery day, it was great to arrive to sunny Arizona and a private residence with a really deep, lighted and beautiful pool! We have stayed at a different home in this neighborhood a couple of times prior and it's a great quiet spot with a golf course around the corner. My only suggestion would be an easier remote for turning on and off the tv/dvd/web apps (took hours just to play a DVD), but I figured it out by the end of the week. I would recommend this for a great getaway for a family or group of friends. 3 bedrooms was perfect for us and we hardly left the house except for a couple of dinners. With the BBQ and full kitchen, it was great to take turns cooking, watching movies, laying by the pool and in general just relaxing! I hope to come back soon and stay again! If you like the Seahawks or just like great food...stop by the Skeptical Chymist in Scottsdale, shopping in old town Scottsdale, more shopping at Arizona Mills & Tempe Marketplace Mall, gambling @ Casino Arizona, travelling out to the desert to see the houses built into the rocks and so many other attractions. This is my favorite winter destination and we will be back!

Villa Sol,Tempe, Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! This lovely house in Tempe was a perfect place for our family to spend some quality time together. The house is beautifully decorated, very clean and has everything you could possible need on your holiday. We all thoroughly enjoyed time by the pool together as well as cooking family meals and relaxing. The location of the house was perfect for us to spend time with our daughter who is studying at ASU, the area felt very safe and we enjoyed joining in the Halloween celebrations in the neighbourhood. We are now hoping to fit in another visit to Phoenix before she finishes and would definately love to stay at Villa Sol again.
