Why Stephen Mutton chose Paradise Valley Village
Best location and view in Anasazi, clean boutique experience.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great location and View!
There were some maintenance issues that were noted in previous reviews but they did not affect our enjoyment of the place. It is a very convenient location and you can't beat the view from the balcony - all golf course, trees and mountains. We will be back.
Beautiful community and condo.
Lots of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Grocery stores within 4 miles. Definitely recommend.
My wife and I have stayed in VRBO properties for many years. This is the first property I would classify as sub standard. It was very poorly cleaned and maintained. When we arrived the garage disposal did not work, bathroom sinks were clogged, shower/tub mixing valve did not work, mold and mildew was growing on tub and shower walls, towels had been put away damp in the linen closet and balcony furniture had been removed and replaced with 2 straight back kitchen chairs. Suggest this property be removed from VRBO recommended list until improvements have been made.
Not the Best
Location was good but the amenities lacked severely. There were a number of light bulbs out when we arrived (half in the bathroom alone). Water came from both the shower and tub faucet at the same time. Two of us were there for 5 nights and we had only 2 bath towels. The TV's were incredibly hard to operate with no instructions provided. The light bulbs were eventually replaced. We were provided 1 extra bath towel. The TV's remained difficult and the tub issue was not resolved.
There were 5 pools but only 1 was heated and the majority of gas grills thoughout the complex did not work
Great location, nice complex, condo needs some work but is adequate
Let me start by saying that I would ideally like to rate this a 3.5 stars if I was able to. 4 is too high and 3 is too low, and if the owners would have gone a little further I might have given them a 4, but there were just too many issues to overlook.
Anasazi is a very nice complex in a great location. The grounds are beautiful and has some decent amenities. There are lots of shopping and restaurant choices within walking distance. That's the good, now for the bad.
The condo itself isn't that bad, but it's dated and has only been partially updated. The kitchen is in rough shape and some of the drawers are about to fall apart. One of the cutlery drawers wouldn't stay closed. The appliances are all fine and work very well. I wasn't a fan of the stove, only because it has the old fashioned burners, and the pan that was supplied was rather large, so I was trying to cook eggs and the pan was wobbling precariously on the burner.
The bathroom seems to be made for shorter people. I'm 6'3" and when I stood in front of the mirror my head was about 8" above the top of it so I had to squat down. The plumbing on the 2 sinks seems to be a bit funky. When you run the water in one of them the other would bubble and burp and occasionally let out a foul odor.
The best part of the condo by far was the bed. It's a newer Posturpedic style mattress and is very comfortable and I slept very well. The bedroom is nice but doesn't have a dresser to put your clothes in so I lived out of my suitcase. My older daughter slept on the pullout couch.. She said it was comfortable, but that wasn't the problem -- there were no linens supplied for it. We ended up having to use a spare king-size fitted sheet from the master bed which didn't fit properly at all, and a throw blanket as a duvet. Fortunately she was warm enough but this wasn't adequate at all. I informed the owners on the first night and they said they would stop by with some linens but never did.
The pools in the complex are all very nice, but due to a gas leak under one of the parking lots the gas to the whole complex was shut down so none of the pools or hot tubs were heated. I realize this is completely out of the owners control but was very disappointing none the less. Fortunately it was very warm when we were there, and we found a pool (#3) that was the warmest and were able to have some pool time.
Would I stay at the complex again? Maybe, but not in that unit, and only if the pools were heated. Good price.
No heated hot tubs
Anasazi Village is nice, but none of the hot tubs were heated, and only 1 of 5 pools were heated.
The potential is good, but the owner needs to step up and take better care of the unit.
If you're tech savvy, eventually you will figure out how to operate the cable tv setup.
2nd level condo so the fact the patio sliders don't lock isn't as important as it would be on the ground floor, but it's indicative of the owners attention to detail.
Plumbing needs attention.
Need more light in living area. Bulbs burnout or missing.
Ask questions before you commit is my advice.
